Wow, thank you for all the interesting input. Rather than ""ing many posters I will try to address everything.
I do not have a favorite position to sleep. I only know I can't seem to fall asleep if I am on my back. I have never had the "Flying", "Falling"
or "Everyone sees me naked" dream. I have had sexual dreams (I'm male, I think that is a given). I do wake up and feel like I just hit the bed (no
dream of falling though).I do recall dreams all the time. I cannot recall any dream that seems to be good either. My dreams are pretty mundane but
crazy non the less.
Typical examples of mundane dreams:
I dream I woke up and went to get doughnuts ate a few and went back to bed. When I awake I believe I really went to get doughnuts and head for the
fridge. Guess what? No doughnuts !!!
Myself and someone I work with are discussing our work in the break room. This somehow changes into my girlfriend & I are discussing a topic while
folding laundry. Some how the dream all makes sense and the "switch" is not noticed, until I awake and recall the dream.
Variations with a crazy factor of the above example:
I am a Dinosaur and though male, my coworker could be wearing a purple skirt. In the dream its all good. The dinosaur is simply chatting about work
with his human buddy in the purple skirt....
The very worst dreams I can recall.
I dreamt I purchased a stereo system I had been coveting for some time. I am on the floor listening to a cd very happy and tapping my foot. Suddenly a
loud deep voice declares "Now wake up in the real world" & I truly awake.
I approach a field. Many people I know are picking up pipes looking in them, screaming and fleeing. I approach a pipe and peer in to see what all the
excitement is about. The pipes are filled with snakes. I dump all the snakes on the ground and began going though them. I hold up a python and think
"thats odd, pythons don't live in these parts ,must be some ones pet." I hold up a water moccasin and think "what in the world is he doing so far
from the water". Basically, I'm not scared in any way I just go through all the snakes and contemplate how in the world they got stuffed into a pipe
in the middle of this field...(No I would not pick up strange snakes in real life)
My brother and I are playing with real bows and arrows. I hear something odd and realize he just accidently shot an arrow at me.. Cut to a close up
cartoon view of the arrow (like Wiley coyote just before it hits him between the eyes). I think wow this cant be good, its a fatal shot, "game
over". and calmly wake up...
I am a young prince in the crusade era (elevated sense of self importance, I don't know), The opposing forces are chasing me and my group with the
intent of either killing me or kidnapping me. A female nanny type figure makes it all a game for me and I rather enjoy what should be very stressful.
She pops a reed into my mouth & plops me into lake. The opposing forces pass me by while I marvel at the fishes underwater which I realize are
actually underwater fireflies....
Rarely, I dream of a book, a show or a movie I am really into at the time. They tend to be recurring and each time I play a different role. A great
example is the show Lost. I have dreamt that I am Charlie saving Clair's baby, Jack in love with Kate, Kate in love with Saywer, and even the smoke
monster, chasing people in all my smokeyness laughing as I spook everyone....
Hope this helps
