[QUOTE=A Noobcake;35164270]I just realized I sleep very little because I hate dreaming. I'm afraid I'll dream nice things, because I hate waking up only to realize everything's as shit as ever. I hardly ever dream as it is, but I had a dream a few nights ago where everything was all good and I was happy, and then I woke up and just cried for like an hour straight. It's fucking hopeless, and since the only thing I can think off that prevents me from dreaming is not sleeping, my grades are dropping and I'm almost always late for school,and when I actually get there I'm so tired it's hard to pay attention, so I'm falling behind in a lot of subjects.[/QUOTE] Hey man go see a doctor.
had my first lucid for about a month last night i think it was the prednisone suppresing my dreams
[QUOTE=Birdman101;35148835]Damn my internal clock is messed up. Yesterday I slept through my alarm and woke up at 1, effectively missing all of school.[/QUOTE] My internal clock is messed up the entirely other way. I [I]allways[/I] wake up around 05:30 and 07:00, which would be quite allright when going to school, but I'm on the schools final-project season. So I go to school only once or twice a week.
I'm going to a market nearby and I'm wondering is the banana peanut butter sandwich a placebo or it really helps?
had a surreal as fuck dream. was flying in this steampunk airplane, throughout this small yet huge world. One side of it was bright and beautiful with bigass waterfalls and rainbows and whatnot, and the other side was just a vast empty ocean with huge dark clouds behind it (there was also this [B]gigantic[/B] girl face staring at nothing with an emotionless expression. gotta love dream like these.

You need to sleep, don't take the good dreams as a bad thing and defiantly don't have them affect your real life. It is better to dream of the good rather than the bad all the time. [QUOTE=Fingers!!!;35174962]I'm going to a market nearby and I'm wondering is the banana peanut butter sandwich a placebo or it really helps?[/QUOTE] I don't think it's a placebo. Besides, bananas are delicious.
I'm feverish. Cue strange dreams tonight.
[QUOTE=Jo The Shmo;35171228]had my first lucid for about a month last night i think it was the prednisone suppresing my dreams[/QUOTE] Huh, Strange I had a lucid out of nowhere last night too. First time in about 2 weeks
My dreams have been getting uncomfortably racist. Last night I was going through like an ethnictown sort of deal. Everything was a restaurant featuring a distinct national cuisine, but each succeeding restaurant had a more racist name. This one restaurant had a sign which didn't even advertise its food. It was just n. plastered on a facade. Eventually I went into a Thai restaurant whose name was probably some play on the prostitute's lines from Full Metal Jacket, where the dream ended.
[QUOTE=Orkel;35180008]I'm feverish. Cue strange dreams tonight.[/QUOTE] It was a trippy night, but not a fun one. Hard to explain but.. it's like reality and dreams started mixing together. The position of my body and limbs and bedsheets and everything controlled how well I did in the dreams and I and my bedsheets basically ended up in ridiculous positions just to "fight well" and I couldn't do anything but go with it because of being so feverish, tired and feeling so weak, I couldn't really think properly. I don't remember details of the dreams but they were about fighting something Later in the night though it started easing up, I started having normal dreams again. One was about being in an alternate reality where a Greek empire was ruling the world. I took part in the yearly "ice race" which was a hardcore death race on ice. We were allowed to use any vehicle we liked as long as it could move on the icy track, and any weapons to annihilate our opponents. There were 11 racers participating every year, and the three that came in last (positions 9-11) were decapitated by a guillotine for being shit. I came in 5th so I didn't have a problem. But it was a risk we racers were willing to take for the fame and glory of winning the biggest event on the planet.
I had some crazy dreams last night, including a game played in a massive arena with lava and fires pits. At multiple times through the night, the topic of a kettle's bosom size. Apparently, 20 to 26 is a good size :v:
Is there any method to realizing dream signs in a dream? I know that for some reason I dream about being in school and college but it never hits me at all that I take my classes online.

It's basically just awareness, and you get better at it as time goes on. Watched the leaked Avatar: Legend of Korra video thing. Had a cool dream about it. Good times.
K is a leprechaun around St. Patrick's Day. Mischief and all.
[QUOTE=Zinayzen;35204936]Not really. It's basically just awareness, and you get better at it as time goes on. Watched the leaked Avatar: Legend of Korra video thing. Had a cool dream about it. Good times.[/QUOTE] Well I started to try and tune myself to do a reality check every time school is brought up, so lets see how that works out. Also, where was I when the Avatar trailers came out?! I can't wait for Legend of Korra.
I was concidering of talking with my teacher on friday about my finishing project and if I could make a comic instead. One that would be somewhat based on dreams. Like the one I describe last page.
I had a lucid last night. I'm not sure how I got into it, I was just sort of already lucid. It was so completely vivid, it actually looked just like real life. I tried clapping to stabilize it, but I think I did it too much and partially destabilized the dream. I was unable to complete my dream goal, AGAIN, but I did run around my school with no pants on. That was fun :v:
And then everything was stuffed into GD.
I had a dream last night that garry fucked up facepunch and then he got shot and it was on the news everywhere yeah

[QUOTE=Kastro;35236083]I used to have lucid dreams, now im trying to get OBE(Out Of Body Experience) / Astral Projection. I haven't successed yet. I think you guys should try these too.[/QUOTE] It doesn't exist. Please don't start this shit up again.
I have really vivid dreams when i fall asleep high, it's a nice feeling being able to remember dreams again after so long.
I used to have a lot of dreams, and 2 (I think) successful lucid dreams. I keep a dream journal, but haven't been keeping up with it, as I have had very little dreams the past few months. I really want to start dreaming again, but I'm having no luck. any suggestions?

You can try some of the stuff suggested in the OP. [QUOTE=Orkel;34500903] [u]How to recall a dream[/u] Of course, this is the most important question. Most people have difficulty at remembering dreams, simply because dreams are rigged to be forgotten the moment you wake up. Another reason why some dream are easily forgotten is because they were boring and aren't worth remembering. Here's how you improve dream recall. -When you wake up, don't move or anything. The first thing you must focus on is the dream. -Before you sleep, repeat to yourself that you'll remember your dream. -Get a dream journal. It makes recall a lot easier and may sometimes help induce lucidity for those doing WBTB. -Eat bananas, watermelons and fish. They contain vitamins necessary for dream recall, supposedly.(I have the same dream recall with and without them) -If you're desperate, take a single tablet with vitamin b6 or 1 to 2 pills of cod liver oil Note that dream recall is a powerful placebo capable increasing chances of lucidity, shame it doesn't work on me anymore. [/QUOTE] It's easier to recall once you get rolling, at least for me.
I made my first character doodle for my dream-comic. A ghoulish looking convict with a wrench in his hand.
I found a book saying that things you see in your dreams are actually signs of the real life, and it explains what each sign meant. Most of the parts actually made sense. I kind of regret not buying the book though.
Recently I have started taking medication for anxiety that as aside effect gives me very vivid dreams. The last one involved me and two guys I had a threesome with irl solving mysterys and ordering pizza that looked like disney characters.
Anyone else actually dream stuff that happens sometime in the future exactly how you dreamed it?
