I was just laying here trying to fall asleep when I remembered a couple of dreams I've had recently where I blacked out at certain points. Thinking about it was really starting to bug me so I decided to make a thread and see if it has happened to anyone else or what it could mean.

I have always had very vivid dreams and I often go lucid, not all the time but enough. This has never happened to me before.

The first dream it happened in was a few nights ago, I was with a celebrity guy from a band that I like and we started kissing, I blacked out at that point and when I came to in the dream it was implied that stuff happened but I couldn't remember it.I woke up shortly after just as confused as I was in the dream.

The second time it happened was last night. I was at a concert of the aforementioned band and as soon as they got on stage I blacked out and came to when the show was over. I didn't wake up right away that time I ended up at home and was looking at youtube videos of the show and thinking Why can't I remember? I was there! Then I woke up

So has this ever happened to anyone? What do you think it could mean?

Do you ever black out in real life?
Alcohol black outs?
Afraid you might miss something ?

And no I don't get black outs.
I mostly dream about my fears and worries..

Well I have blacked out a couple times from alcohol in the past but I don't even drink anymore.
I don't think I'm afraid of missing anything but I suppose that doesn't mean I'm not subconsciously. Maybe missing out on life I guess.

No clue what it means, but yes this has happened to me. I was looking up at the sky and it was very strange with lots of colors then I got dizzy and felt weird and heard a deep buzzing and went down and blacked out, in my dream.

Weird. Nothing like that happened to me it just went black and then I came to seemingly later but who knows how long it actually was? Maybe I fell back into a deeper sleep where I wasn't able to dream? But that doesn't explain why I came to in the same dream and I was missing parts of it? You would think I would just be dreaming of something else.

No it's not. I'm talking about blacking out in the middle of a dream and coming to in the same dream not remembering what just happened. Or why you just blacked it out.

I blacked out in real life once and thought I was dreaming.

As it turns out I stripped naked and lunged 12 feet over a rail and concrete to finish with a dive in the pool, several times. Didn't remember a thing the next morning, just woke up thinking that I had a dream that I was swimming.

hehe.

Mybad. It probably happens more than you think, you just remembered it and now you notice it more. Like that 11:11 crap.

hahaha well I was dreaming for sure considering the people in both my dreams where I blacked out live in the UK and I live in the US. Also if I ever meet them in real life I damn well better remember it!

I hope that's the case because it's kind of making me worry.

Yeah that's weird it happens to me sometimes too. I will remember people from other dreams that are in whatever dream I am dreaming at the time. If that makes sense lol!

I am a LUCID DREAMER at all times. I always know I am dreaming. Time within a Dream is subject to Time Compression. So 30 seconds of Dreaming can seem like a whole day for the person who is dreaming.

I know when I am dreaming and I remember my dreams but this took some meditation. I often am able to solve problems in my dreams and keep a pad next to my bed as even though I remember the dreams and can even force myself through the sleep paralysis to fully wake up. I can remember the dream at the instant of waking but if I do not write down what problem I have solved and go back to sleep...my conscious mind may scrap the information in the dream and I will not remember everything the next day.

As far as Blacking Out within a Dream...to remember that I would think you would be Lucid Dreaming and I also think that there is a reason for this. It could be the drink or the lack of it...it could be medical...or psychological...or it could be your SUBCONSCIOUS trying to tell you something. Every person is really THREE DIFFERENT PEOPLE. Your Left Hemisphere of your brain is responsible for ANALYTICAL THOUGHT...the Right Hemisphere is WHERE your CREATIVE ABILITY comes from so if you ever see a person looking up and to their RIGHT SIDE of their forehead or eye brow...THEY ARE LYING THEIR ASSES OFF! LOL! If they look up toward the Left Side of their Forehead or eye brow...they are thinking about what really happened and are recalling truth.

These are Two Separate Personalities within almost everyone...the THIRD is your SUBCONSCIOUS. Now the subconscious is like a Recording Computer and remembers EVERYTHING THAT ANY SENSORY DATA FROM ALL PARTS OF YOUR BODY...has EVER experienced. Thus is you were cold and glanced at a passing truck on a street on say January 5th 1993....your Subconscious KNOWS AND REMEMBERS how cold...what was written on the side of the truck...where you were...what you were wearing...what it smelled like...what you were thinking...every aspect of every sensory input that your Brain received. I can...SOMETIMES access my Subconscious...when it lets me...but not always.

So...you also KNOW....without a doubt...whether or not you stopped dreaming or you were dreaming and for some reason...parts of these dreams were Blacked Out to you. Drinking or doing other bad things to your body or a Medical Condition can cause these memories to be lost forever. But Meditation and Recall Practice might bring these memories back...even if they were just a dream. I have been trained in the art of observation...I am very good at it. It takes practice and it is much easier to recall an act of reality that a part of a dream...but if you are a Lucid Dreamer like I am...it is easier for us than most people and Meditation on a Deep Level is the Key. Also...you must keep an open mind and not have any forgone conclusions or Meditation is worthless. Unless you have drank your memory away...it is still there. All you need is to find the KEY. I find that during Meditation it is helpful to relive so to say...the smallest details you remember of the Blacked Out Dream. This will stimulate Neural Pathways that are connected to sensory perception as even in a dream...DATA is streaming to the Subconscious...so if that night you cooked a Pizza in the oven or washed your sheets or wore a specific T-Shirt or even if it was a rainy or windy night or the A/C was on...recreate these conditions while Meditating and if possible...if you are a Lucid Dreamer like I am...DIRECT A NEW DREAM...toward what you remember of the old one. GOOD LUCK! Split Infinity

Wow, this is a new one on me. But the more I think about it, the less I'm surprised that this thing happened.

The dream world is vastly richer than the physical world. If anything it does not have any boundaries in all dimensional aspects. I have been drunk, stoned, tired, ecstatic, enlghtened in many of my dreams, so having a black-out in a dream isn't so unusual I suppose.

I agree with SplitInfinity - these experieces you've had sound more like lucid dreams - not your regular passive dream.

Thanks for Sharing - S&F

This probably doesn't help much but I've had a few dreams on different occasions where I struggle to see. Like I can't keep my eyes open as I move about or experience waves of blindness and blackness. It isn't exactly like "blacking out" but that I'd have to navigate around in the dream while blind or unable to see clearly.

It was almost like dreaming that I was blind. Very weird to say the least.

I woke UP from sleep into a dream once. At the start of the dream, I woke up at the crack of dawn sitting behind the wheel of an old Ford pickup truck that had gone off the road and rolled slowly through someone's yard until it nosed up against a barn. Apparently I was driving it and fell asleep.

I've also died in dreams.

Yes this has happened to me and it is a very weird sensation. Lately, when it happens there is a complete change of scenery and context when I wake up from the blackout in the dream. There is sort of like a flash from a camera and then everything goes black for a few seconds in between each change. Sometimes I know I am dreaming and this makes it even weirder.

Thank you for the reply, I enjoyed reading it.

I did not have any alcohol to drink before I had these dreams so that's not it. I am worried it is a medical issue though. I really hope not.

I am totally for meditation and even thought about meditating to try and recall the blacked out parts of those dreams.I have not, but will probably do that when I have the proper time.
