Many times a dream has been how my subconscious has relayed a solution to a problem I have not been able to solve consciously. Sometimes you gotta just let go and allow "yourself" to process.

There are theories ranging all over the place.

Dreams are your subconscious trying to tell you something.
or
Dreaming is your body's way of dumping useless information.
or
Every dream or nightmare is a parallel universe.
or
Dreams have no meaning what so ever.

I don't have a particular belief. I just wish my dreams would stay fun, without any romantic nonsense to depress me when I wake up.

All dream theories are simply best guesses by quacks. I have very lucid dreams and feel pain and all other tactile sensations while dreaming. If I get eviscerated by a monster the pain will wake me up. I don't consider that a nightmare though. Just an annoyance that the pain woke me up. The best is when you are dreaming, realize it's a dream and then just start taking over molding and creating the dream however you want. The trick is to stay asleep. If you get too excited because you're basically God in your dream you'll wake up... I think I lucid dream so often because I have insomnia and I'm always on the cusp of being asleep / conscience....

Amongst everything I've learned about dreams, the only one I really remember is it's really more of a way of settling memories. Personally, I care not to bother with learning about dreams as I feel them to be confusing and pointless; I don't think dreams have any real meaning that is.

That's probably it, mate. On the few occasions where I couldn't sleep no matter what I did, and tried to occupy myself, I did have some extremely lucid dreams whilst slipping in and out of consciousness.

I'll have a two hour adventure in my mind, look at my alarm clock and it's been 3 fucking minutes. This happens almost nightly. I truly enjoy dreaming as my dreams while mostly bizarre are almost always awesome. I really feel sorry for people who say they either can't remember their dreams or say they don't dream at all. Of course they do dream they just don't remember them. Shit I still remember dreams I had when I was kid....

I know what you mean, I can remember dreams from when I was 4 or 5, to be honest. So when people tell me they can't remember their dreams the morning after, I pretty much have the same reaction as you. It's like, "lol, too bad, man."

I like the thought of being a ''god'' in my dream. It is my dream afterall. Everyone have different opinions around. This one is really a free and speculating one. Lose Yourself into it. Like my thoughts should do. I might sleep better depending on if I can ''empty'' my mind for thoughts or else I usually think too hard on unmendable things.
http://psychology.about.com/od/theoriesofpersonality/a/consciousuncon.htm

I recognise myself in this. before I was talking too much with my mom. I sweared before I went to bed that I will not talk to her for several days. Then I went to sleep. Next morning. What did I do? yes. I called my mom. I felt some quilt and unfair feelings. So my unconscious mind was still focusing on the fact that I should be more honest with her and not cross her limits as she would do the same with me.
Later close to this New Years Eve. I was somehow in a unconscious and conscious state where I was sleeping while the thoughts I brought up before I got to sleep was still working inside me.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melatonin

This was the answer for the turn of events. Pneumonia that I had eariler in late Autumn. Pharmaceutical drug that I was using for 8 years. I used about three years on downgrading them and one year (2012) for the last lowest dose.
Instead of sleeping like I should. I was gaming online, not sleeping much, drinking coffe, high music and lots of
inactivity. To the results I distanced myself from the entire family knowing that this lifestyle would kill me. I would not get another chance. So I decided. I start anew. Few steps here and there. Starting with being honest with myself that would give confidence so I could be more safe with the people I cwould interact with. At some point I forgot the reality because I drowned myself in ''my own reality'' That seeking solitude to see myself from a distance. What did I really do these past days I asked myself. Is this what I want or am I just going with ''the flow'' I figured that independence and self confidence comes first before going into a life I have not been into for many years. It is like to try and swim the first time you learn it. Some people manage that because it is the first time and it is still a dormant state of skill. They throw you in the water. Knowing that you might die if you cannot manage to swim makes the instincts trigger everything possible to manage it. So I guess. First things first but it is not easy being creative and a musician with lots of energy when your actual state is limited to health and late experiences. Our brain is capable of doing more that we do today I believe. Very fascinating. There is no limit to what we can do or is it? The society and culture. Politics and religion. What limits us? Our genes or maybe the DNA.
Does internet and other electricity affect we humans? So back to the topic.

This.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcolepsy
Can this be evolved with bad sleeping rythms over time?
For your information. My dad died last year so things might happening in there.
Is this normal when someone passes away?
What do you think about these things?






My father and grandfather both passed away so I sympathize. If Narcolepsy was caused by bad sleeping habit I would definitely have it. I think there's a hereditary component to it as well. Are you falling asleep during the day with no control what so ever?

Dreams & nightmares are a result of your soul going on fun adventures without you.

Hmmm not bad. I only lucid dream once in my whole life that I can remembered. I was chasing after this girl. I'm not trying to sound corny .>.< Anyways....up to this day, I've been trying to record my dream as much as possible.

Dreams often reflect what I'm doing through out the day, what I want and also what I'm not capable of. I guess my brain wants me to unconsciously determined which route I should choose to have a great result in the future.

INTERESTING FACT: Everything you do changes the result of the future. (EX: Throwing a ball at someone. RESULT: Future alters a bit.)

My dreams are weird, but I find them oddly satisfying to my amusement.
As for my nightmares... Mine are twisted, and can happen any time. I find myself now-and-days having frequent night terrors. Like a few nights ago, I woke up on the ground, clutching my shirt, and sweating, feeling completely terrified. I don't remember it, but I kind of know the familiar feeling of a night terror.

I'm a lucid dreamer too. I started off as a kid with nightmares/terrors, then learned how to take control (I got mad about having REALLY TERRIBLE nightmares). At one point I had too much control and didn't want to stop sleeping because I had made my dreams too pleasant. Now I'm still a lucid dreamer, but I don't bother trying to control them anymore (lazy) I just hang around and see where it takes me...I don't really much care anymore, and I do have to say my dreams can sometimes now be very mundane, like the dream I had of folding laundry.....boring, but kinda funny to be dreaming about that. A dream I have often and that leaves me very satisfied is where I am playing a stringed instrument very well. It's either a violin, viola, cello, or acoustic guitar (most times it's the guitar) with no one around. The only one I've ever played was the violin. The dream makes me rethink going back to playing a stringed instrument again (take lessons). I'd like to learn the Haegeum, the Gayageum, or the Guzheng, ....but there's no one to teach me and those instruments are expen$ive!

Yeah, I make music in my bedroom studio and a lot of times I'll hear a song in my dream that is just perfect, and I know if I could only remember the samples and drums and what not it would be amazing if I could remember them and recreate it when I wake up. But as I wake up it quickly fades away. At least I know my subconscious is a dope producer even if I'm not...
