Well I have had some real doozies, Once I dreamed I was a black Reptillian man/thing and I was watching some drug dealer's making a deal in a multi story car part some were, they were just exchanging the money and I ran out of the shadow's and attacked them, I jumped in the air too fast for the men to draw there gun's and my legs bent the wrong way with taloned feet so I fell on the bigger and took his stomach out with a downward kick of my foot while holding him with my clawed hands, weird and disturbing as I am a pacifist but I remember feeling powerful almost invincible and very fast and intelligent.
Earlier tonight at about 3.40 pm English time I fell asleep as I am off work and felt like a doze, I dreamed I was in some medieval tavern and was a young inexperienced knight under the wing of an older knight whom was grey bearded and aging, an disreputable knight came in and shouted to me before throwing a bouquet of flowers at me (like an insult) but the older guy stood and caught them in mid flight, he was wounded as the blade of a dagger was concealed in the stems of the flowers and it went through his hand, the cat woke me up by trying to get me to get off the bed and steal it for himself.
The human imagination is a wonderful but sometimes terrifying thing.

You must be a "true warrior" at heart.
Very interesting dreams. Are you fighting some kind of battle in your waking life?
Had a dream that when I walked out of my condo all my neighbors were outside waiting for me. I greeted them and they all started barking at me. Like 'woof woof woof woof' Now, I am a cat person so I have no idea what that means, lol.

Thanks for the laugh!
The one where you are floating to the ceiling is you having an OBE. This (more than likely) isn't a dream. Next time, don't fight it. Your spirit guide may need to take you on a journey for your spiritual growth.

How could my memory be so warped-does that have anything to do with why I have never dreamed about it or had any bad dreams while I was there?
Could that be why I have never dreamed about it?
Does everyone dream?
Yes. Laboratory studies have shown that we experience our most vivid dreams during a type of sleep called Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep. During REM sleep the brain is very active, the eyes move back and forth rapidly under the lids, and the large muscles of the body are relaxed. REM sleep occurs every 90 - 100 minutes, 3 to 4 times a night, and lasts longer as the night progresses. The final REM period may last as long as 45 minutes. Less vivid dreams occur at other times during the night.
Why do people have trouble remembering their dreams?
Some people have no difficulty in remembering several dreams nightly, whereas others recall dreams only occasionally or not at all. Nearly everything that happens during sleep— including dreams, the thoughts which occur throughout the night and memories of brief awakenings—is forgotten by morning. There is something about the phenomenon of sleep itself which makes it difficult to remember what has occurred and most dreams are forgotten unless they are written down. Sometimes a dream is suddenly remembered later in the day or on another day, suggesting that the memory is not totally lost but for some reason is very hard to retrieve. Sleep and dreams also are affected by a great variety of drugs and medications, including alcohol. Further, stopping certain medications suddenly may cause nightmares. It is advisable to discuss with your physician the effect of any drugs or medications you are taking.
An out-of-body experience (OBE or sometimes OOBE) is an experience that typically involves a sensation of floating outside one's body and, in some cases, perceiving one's physical body from a place outside one's body (autoscopy). The term out-of-body experience was introduced in 1943 by George N. M. Tyrrell in his book Apparitions, and was adopted by researchers such as Celia Green and Robert Monroe as an alternative to belief-centric labels such as "astral projection", "soul travel", or "spirit walking". The researcher Waldo Vieira described the phenomenon as a projection of consciousness. OBEs can be induced by brain traumas, sensory deprivation, near-death experiences, dissociative and psychedelic drugs, dehydration, sleep, and electrical stimulation of the brain, among others. It can also be deliberately induced by some.
