I've used pre-sleep imaging to influence my dreaming. Particularly after a spate of nightmares, but also to induce my favorite type of dreams. If I didn't get enough of a dream one night, I could revisit it the next night.

I used to remember my dreams very vividly after I woke up. Not so much now.




@ paragraph 4 how often does this work?
@ paragraph 5 sometimes i almost don't remember my dreams, but my lust to learn about them brings them to the surface. i think really hard and i usually remember them. then i write my dream down. yes, i basically have a dream journal. it's not strange, it's a passion for knowledge of dreams.


Paragraph 4 is not something I do very much. For nightmares it seems pretty successful. I try to determine what was driving the bad dream. Then, I try to come to terms with the underlying issues that seemed to cause the nightmare. I also imagine ways to deal with the specific imagery of the dream. If the nightmare comes back I have thoughts planted in my mind to deal with it. I seldom have reoccurring nightmares.

Trying to ensure happy dreams is less successful. When I've tried too hard I've gotten interrupted sleep, where I woke up each time my mind drifted to something else. The other thing that has happened is that I never really went to sleep at all, so basically it was daydreaming in bed. I've only tried it a few times with dreams that felt exceptionally wonderful.

A dream journal is great. There's nothing strange about it; all journals are personal. Plus, you're right, if I worked at remembering my dreams I would get better at it. I just don't have enough interest in it at present.

aw, i feel bad for you since i think about and research dreams every day, i have a lot of dreams. and i'm happy to say 30% of my dreams are like that it's awesome though.

50% of my dreams are neutral/happy, 20% are nightmares, and 30% are sexual... (even though i guess those are really good dreams) i'm pretty happy with my ratio go ahead, call me a pervert, but dreams are unpredictable, and anyway, i love those dreams.

yeah... but the good part is i can usually control my nightmares then kill what's trying to kill me or something like that. so basically, i almost never have actual bad dreams, because after i start controlling the nightmare, my sadistic side takes over and i enjoy it.

Last night i had a dreamed that i was in a resistance group and i was running away from these people that were chasing a a few of us and we ended up in this house. I don't know why but when we got into this house, we weren't allowed to be seen by the people inside or we would die. So we went all covert and the two people i was traveling with got through a little portal in one of the bedrooms. when it was my turn to go through i saw the sun coming up and a lady appeared on the bed next me and said that i couldn't escape the dream until it went back to being night time. so i was forced to run away from guard dogs and people chasing me for a whole day. when it came to be night again i went back to the room where the portal was and i stepped through only to be confronted by a large amount of soldiers who had captured my 2 counterparts. I crossed a bridge to get a better view of the situation and when i did i saw both of my counterparts get cut from head to toe in half by a lumber saw with blood spraying everywhere. Then i woke up.

example of lumber saw:

My dreams, in general, usually take place in a demented version of reality. Like my house, school, and even a place down the road are all in my dreams but demented versions, strange. I actually wouldn't mind living in my dreams forever because they have a unique feeling and you feel like your the center of everything, which you kinda are.

Lately, I've been having lots of dreams about suicide and murder. I usually call these 'stress dreams' because I only have this type of dream when in my waking life, I'm extremely spread thin from work/family/etc. They've been coming in a lot more often lately, even when I nap (which is weird, and usually doesn't happen).

ok, so, new topic, if you want. how long are your dreams usually? like how long in dream time, not real time. since i have more dreams and my dreams are in a lot of detail, my dreams can last a long time. i can have weeks, yes, WEEKS, in one night. so how long are your dreams usually, and what are some (or just 1) of your longest dreams?

or you don't have to do that. you can just stay in the other topic.

I have similar, but mine are that I am going to die, or I do die and I go to the afterlife. These dreams never involve anyone else, but myself.

Last dream I had (a few posts up) was that I being chased by a grim reaper type of spirit (which, by the way looked nothing like the grim reaper that you see in films and drawing) and it was telling me that my time is up and it was here to get me. I told it I needed just a little more time to finish up some stuff, and it told me fine, but as soon as I finish up what I want, it will be back to get me, and I immediately woke up.
