Title: Dream Sharing Forum
Post by Bruce Moen on Nov 1st, 2005 at 2:46pm
There have been a number of requests to have a  separate forum just for sharing and discussing dreams.  Now there is a place to post your dreams, ask for help interpreting them, or perhaps just to document that you had a specific dream about future events before those events happen.

Posts not about dreams may be moved to a more appropriate forum, and posts about dreams on other forums may be moved to this forum.  Visitors are encouraged to utilize the Peer Moderator system.

Enjoy the new forum!

Actually I've noticed that when I read about other peoples dreams, it triggers me to remember mine.  So thanks for the forum where I can focus on what I need to remember and hopfully relate some of my nighttime experiences to jobs or learnings I might be doing and then forgetting about.  It's much easier than weeding through the varied topics that sometimes tend to overwelm and not allow me to complete a personal theme.

Love, Jean :-*

hey Carolyn, now u just have to remember a dream so I can pick it into pieces just for practice! he he he he! then I promise I'll return the favor.
seriously, we're all dreamers, we just don't remember dreams well until we train ourselves to remember, so welcome dreamers one and all. and ok, I'll be the first one to smash my champagne glass on this ship with last nights dream, and Corolyn, I might need a little help on this one. love, alysia

Okay, actual official dream to share...

Very short dream...I'm in the kitchen, doing I forget what, and there's a knock on the door.  I go to answer it, and when I open the door, standing there looking through the screen with a big, somewhat sheepish grin on his face, is John (my at that time about five weeks dead husband).  I yelled "What are you doing here?" as I flung the screen door open and threw my arms around him.  He seemed somewhat surprised, and when I looked up at him and said "You'll wait for me, won't you?" he answered "Uh, yeah, sure..."  I'm not sure if it was a "Yeah, sure" like "Crap, what do I say now?" or like he couldn't believe I'd even ask (I like that translation better).  

Everything was absolutely real, I can remember the cool dusty feel of the aluminum screen door,  how warm and solid John felt, and the feel of his shirt against my cheek, even the temperature outside.  About that time either the alarm went off or that stupid rooster started to crow under my window, and I woke very abruptly.

So, someone with more expertise in this area than I've got...analyze?

hi Cricket! hey! our first dream here! cool!

nonphysical beings use our dream state to communicate to us best because while we are dreaming we are more accepting of this contact. so, I say, it was your husband for real. same thing happened to me when my hubby died, and it was around 5 weeks it took him to come by and say hello.
u lucky! although it's not exactly luck. you are receptive and sensitive. man, I wish I had a rooster to crow at me! I love chickens.

"man, I wish I had a rooster to crow at me! I love chickens. "

I'd gladly send you a few... ;)

My take on my dream was about what you said, but I wanted a "second opinion".  It was one of the most intensely "real" dreams I've ever had, and I do a lot of lucid dreaming.   One thing that really struck me, don't know if it's unusual or not, is that I never for an instant (during the dream) forgot that he was dead...I was actually thinking "He came!  He actually came back to visit!"  I had gotten the impression, from reading here, that all of that kind of pointed toward "the real thing", but it's nice to hear.  I love John with all my heart, but he was hard to sleep with (imagine a tall boney individual who snored and thrashed all night...and I'm half that size).  One thing I'm noticing is that, sleeping alone, I'm having a lot more dreams I remember, I'm "lucid dreaming" a lot again, and getting a lot more rest.  Looks like life is telling me to get into that side of my psyche now. (Fate dropping a tree on John's head was not absolutely necessary, sigh...)

I had a dream this morning that was rather strange and left me feeling real pain in it.  

It's jumbled but I felt like I was in a television show similar to the X-Files.  I was friends with a short, thin balding man in his 50s or 60s, an Asian woman who looked kind of like Kelly Hu and a young, tall man.  The theme of the dream was black magic and it's infestation among the general population.  

This took place in an unkown city.  We were chased by a wave of fire down a streetlight lit neighborhood (one of the blasts sent me flying high into the air) and there was a lot of fire spreading throughout the neighborhood and into the city.  Early on into the dream, I was warned not to call out anyone who was practicing black magic.

We found a convenience store on a street corner owned by a Korean man.  Another Asian man worked there as well.  I could sense that they were practicing witchcraft and mentioned it to the Asian woman.  I was warned not to call attention to this for damage would be inflicted upon me.  I went inside the store anyway, and was trapped in a closet.  The owner of the store and a couple of his men grabbed me while someone carved something in my back (a pentagram?).  What bothers me is that I could *FEEL* the knife digging into my back.  It made me nauseous.  I soon woke up but the memory of the pain remains.  

This area I was in made me think of some kind of hell.  I have my reasons to think it was manipulated by a remote force but that could mean several things.  I just thought I'd share.  My dreams have been pretty fascinating lately and very unusual.

I have had several dreams in my lifetime relating to a frantic situation. I was being chase by something, or falling. Sometimes I would hear a really loud word, or "bang" sound inside my head, only to awaken, and find that I was starving for oxygen because the winter blankets were over my head. Nice to know that we have a system designed to kick us awake. It is said that as we dream our hearing is shut down to a degree, but I can still "hear" words in dreams. Fascinating. It's good to note things. I have the dream diary and pen right by my left side.

Have any of you experienced a "No recall" only to have something trigger a memory from the dream during the following day ? There are times that I have plenty of dreams only to draw a complete blank upon awakening. Since I keep a dream experiment going, and hate to have empty spaces, I will go ahead, and take a nap dream, or hang out in a hypnogogic lounge of the mind. Some of the visions I have are truly bizarre. Maybe one day we will be able to videotape our dreams, but we had better have an EDIT button for some things...LOL....

Hi , I've been writing them down or recording them. have a dream log for each year on my puter. usually they don't mean much until I open up a dream log from last year and then I go, oh, that's what that dream meant!

when I first wake up I remember them, then they seem dumb or unimportant. if I don't write them down quickly they are lost, but sometimes like u said, they get triggered or pop up during the day and so a second chance to write it down. then in the afternoon maybe, I'll find the clue to the dream to decipher it, what it means. it will often hold a clue to some issue I'm working on, either give me relaxation or something else to ponder on about the future sometimes.

love, alysia

Ok WOW.  I am so glad I found this site!!!  A lucid dreamer like myself becomes a creative writer!  I remember things as though they were real, fresh in my mind, and when I write them down, they are wacky insane adventures.  I just started a new medication and this morning I had a D OOZY of a dream that I'm sure someone will enjoy reading/analyzing.  Maybe I find myself divulging too much information though... I want to keep some things deep, no matter how real they seem when I'm twicthing in R.E.M. and trying things I never would unless I knew I was dreaming in the dream!!!  Believe in yourself and you become capable of defying gravity!! :-X

O, my. Most people don't believe me when I relate my dreams. Or they insist I'm making it all up. In this mornings dream I had to get dressed after a quickie with a certain pop singer and run out of a basement in New York to evade the suited men and catch a ride that was leaving with out me. I ran alongside the bus until I reached, grabbed the seat with my hand and pulled myself aboard, two rows behind her... While riding this VW Bus/Tourist train, I ended up fending myself from all kinds of Wild Cats, showing their fangs and swiping at me. The lion's den was no match for me as I am brave enough in dreams to defy gravity. :P

There is a factor involved in dream sharing that is philosophical in nature.

My belief system sets up the parameters for both my waking and dreaming experiences. If I believe in what's called a collective consciousness or collective mind, it becomes a meeting place for me to encounter other minds. The more I believe in this collective, the greater my chances of connecting. I believe it is this interconnectedness of existence that paves the way for dream sharing.
