Okay a little background info to make things a little more understandable.
I'm in college however since the year ended I have no classes to attend and no job to worry about. I go to sleep very very late around 7AM and wake
up around 3 or 4PM. For some reason since i've been doing this EVERY night with out fail i have some fantastic and truly strange dreams.
Usually when i'm in school or have things to do i normally dont remember my dreams. However for the past 2 or 3 weeks i've had several dreams a
night that i can remember vividly. I have read that the first step to controlling your dreams is to remember them. Well, i'm remembering atleast 2 or
3 a night and still no lucid dreams.
It's strange because a few years back i felt like i had no control over my dreams and i was the one who was watching things unfold and made stupid
decisions in my dreams. Now in my dream i use the same logic as i do in real life and in my dream i hear my self questioning and reasoning with myself
over whats happening yet i still cannot control my dreams. For example lets say in my dream i see a beautiful girl and she wants to sleep with me. My
real world logic kicks into my dream and runs through all the basics like i would do in real life. Such as Who are you what are you doing? Why are you
here etc? in my Why cant i just go and do as i please. I feel like im trapped in my own logic!
Now to my main point, sometimes my dreams have no relevancy to what has happened to me during the day. Or even in the past few months. Some times they
make no sense at all. Sometimes they have very deep meanings but they are still irrelevant to me. For example yesterday, i had a dream that me and a
friend were talking and then for some reason she had to go and i was sad. Then later on in my dream i went back in time to the moment where she said
she had to go and i stopped her and the following events changed from what they were before when i let her go.
What does this mean?? People say all dreams have meanings. But with all the ridiculous and ludicrous dreams i have how can they all have a message?
Like today i had a dream that i was in one of those big heavy iron cars that chase around tornados and a tornado came and flipped the car over but we
were okay and kept driving? Are you saying that that somehow correlates to something in my life?? This is the car i was in
This is so random because i dont even have a fascination for tornadoes nor do i watch shows about em
Sorry for rambling on so much and i'm happy if you've reached this far into my post
But what is your take on this? Do you believe dreams are just a playground for your mind and nothing else? Do you believe all dreams have meanings? Or
both? How come even in my dreams i'm stuck to my real world logic? Thanks for reading as i've been thinking about this for awhile and looking for
*Also in addition,(so that i dont have to start another thread) when i was on vacation from college courses i would sleep 10 or 11 hours and i would
wake up and i would feel this immense feeling of relaxation on my body like i've never ever felt before. Even now i dont feel it anymore. Its very
hard to explain as i've only experienced it 2 or 3 times during my life all in which happened when i was off of school. My body just felt so great,
it felt like i could stay in my bed forever and its just so hard to express how wonderful it was to just be laying there even awake. And i would just
want to go back to sleep but just having slept 11 hours i felt it would be a waste of a day. It felt as if i could sleep for another 11 hours if i
chose to close my eyes. It felt as if i was at peace and all i had to do was sleep. Getting up from the bed was so disappointing. I'm not a lazy
person, i dont lay around all day quite the contrary but being in this state felt like i wanted nothing to do with life Just wanted to sleep. Have any
of you ever experienced this?
