First i want to make clear that i used the serach feature and i found a similar thread, but that is not exactly what i wanted (not to mention it's 4 years old and had't had a post in 3)

So, i want to listen to your dreams, the stronger the impression it left on you the better.

So, my dreams are really interesting (for me at least), i'm never in the dream but rather i play the role of the main character or a side character from time to time, tonight one was really good.


Several nights ago i had a dream about a bandit, this guy had a plan to get loaded... You see this couple he meet worked at a company and they have the job of transporting a really valuable collection of jewels, the jewels were inside a back pack to attract little attention. The plan was easy, he go ahead and take the backpack, latter on the couple would say they were attacked by bandits that didn't knew about the jewels, the bandits would sell the jewels and share the money with the couple, or so that was the plan...

The couple got greedy and give my character a backpack full of cloths, they hide the jewels in a small refrigerator and latter on said the backpack got stolen, so they could keep it all.
My character not releasing this went meet with his crew in the desert and found out about the scam, but that wasn't it all, their new problem was that their horse dyed on them and they were now lost in the desert, not to mention that his crew tough he was trying to keep all the money for himself by telling them he was scammed... so they kill him with a knife.

This lead us to my dream tonight, i once again am the bandit, he wakes up after the dream i just tell you about, one day before the day he was supposed to be killed, the day he is supposed to meet with the couple. I see him travel trough the desert, but this time he take a better look at the horses, he then notice they had been poisoned, taking another horse with him he goes to the meeting with the couple, only this time he open the backpack in front of them founding nothing but dirty clothes, he them point his gun towards the head of the girl and said, open that little refrigerator over there, the face on the girl is the last proof he needed to make sure it wasn't just a dream...

And that's it, i think it was a lot of fun, the setting was in a semi-destroyed town, they had cars but the sun was so strong it was better to use horse (yeah i know that's stupid but it was a dream after all)


Edit: Well, this is not important but in the moment the last dream of the bandit saga ended i started dreaming about this guy who gets "Zero" (the one from Rockman) like powers when he was falling from a tall building... really odd.

why are your dreams always so detailed? laugh
I have to read it through 2 times to understand this one.

for the last few days, I've been trying to do what's called lucid dreaming, basically you dream while knowing that it is a dream. The punchline? you can control everything like you're a God.
I haven't been successful as I was too afraid of sleep paralysis, because these two are intertwined and you can easily slip into sleep paralysis when you're trying to lucid dream. You will see figures that aren't of this world, you won't be able to move your body nor scream. I know it's just the brain trolling, but I'm still scared.
Why? because I've seen these figures 2 times and they were very bad experiences...
I just hope I managed to do it right by tonight lol. I can share it here if I made it.

I know two people who are very very good at lucid dreaming, but I have never successfully done it. There are only a few dreams that I can even vaguely remember; I'll share two. One was almost getting killed by a giant, invisible, and poisonous spider in a room, and the other was getting my head chopped off by a dragon emperor wielding a sword. Haven't found any explanation for them though.

well I don't believe if dreams have any valid explanations for real world events.
there are books about the meaning though and I know a few people who like to refer to those books about their dreams to extract some numbers confused that would let them to win some gambling game.

It's easy, I once dreamed about eating watermelons.
That means I like watermelons.
And yeah I do like watermelons. biggrin

I've had that happen a couple of times and they were both weird because each time I was lying in my bed in the dream and it was like it was happening in the physical world.

The first time I saw a figure move from my rooms door to my desk and stare at me. The figure looked like a shadow person and I couldn't move or breath we just stared at each other for awhile and then in defiance I got real angry and thought to myself that I know this is just a dream and you have no control over me. It was at that point that I gained the upper hand and was able to wake up.

The second time it happened I encountered the figure again but this time the room was dark. I could see Its outline as it moved towards me. It had evil intentions this time and I couldn't move. It seemed to be sitting on me and grasping my throat. I remember little white heads floating around me. Once again I got mad and thought about how it didn't have control over me and this is my world. My body. I was able to wake up.

I've had other dreams like falling into a giant spiders web and getting devoured by said spider. Or being trapped in a building with skeletons with glowing red eyes chasing me with swords. These are the only ones I can remember at the moment.

Funny thing is that in each of these instances I wasn't scared. I was pissed and ready to fight back. I figured if I was gonna die then I would go down kicking some ass.

ok theres this nightmare i had that makes me shiver even now because it was soooo damn realistic...the place, the time and the people in it...the whole setting was very realistic so i cant help but think that it might come true(i hope not)
so umm heres what i remember:
in the dream i was outside school, i think i was probably skipping class or maybe i had a free class. i dont know. anyway, there's an icecream place next to school, i always sneak out of school when i have free classes and go there to get an icecream...a lot of other students do too, to the point where sometimes teachers go there randomly to catch any ditchers lol. so in the dream i was going to that icecream place and on the way i saw other girls going there too, i know these girls in real life but we rarely talk because we never had any mutual classes...for some weird reason we didnt take the normal path, instead we took the longer one. this way we had to take the path behind school...behind our school theres a huge sandy area through which cars rarely pass. oh btw, i forgot to mention that all other girls were ahead of me and i was walking at the back. then suddenly comes this bulky grey car and stops right in front of the group of girls infront of me, we all immediately felt that something was wrong with the way the car parked so we all started backing away on impulse. then this man barges out of the car and leaves the car door open and he starts running towards us, we all panicked and 2 of the girls even tripped, he almost caught them but they managed to run away...i ran like hell but my legs were shaking because i was really scared and he was catching up with me...then i just stopped like an idiot and turned around and saw him running towards me. i was so scared that my legs wouldnt move, i tried screaming but i couldnt budge my lips i was literally frozen with fear. and then just when he was about to grip my arm i wokeup.
just remembering this makes me shiver lol cry

This sounds a lot like you were experiencing sleep paralysis.

Because it is. It's just your brain playing tricks on you that make you hallucinate.

I remember falling asleep and all of a sudden I heard a very loud scream inside my head, as I opened my eyes, a pair of black feet was standing beside me. I tried to lift my head to see her (his?) face but it was very hard to move my body. As I did it, that rrring sound inside my head kept getting louder and louder, and then I was covered in sweat. At that time I could hear my mother's voice clearly as she spoke to my brother outside the room, this made me realize I wasn't dreaming and thought it was a ghost, as I was young and haven't been informed of sleep paralysis back then.

Dang your story could make a good horror movie...

EDIT: Ah I realized I haven't been sharing my actual dream here. Just one..
I was an elementary schooler and the dream took place in a class in my elementary school.
I was with my friends enjoying the break, when suddenly a silent kid who I have never seen before started murmuring. As he murmured, the limbs from one of my friend were torn off and blood splattered everywhere. He continued to murmur and another friend's limbs were also torn off.
It seems I was the only one who realize that he was the one doing the massacre, as all of the other students ran and screamed but they couldn't open the door.
I retreat myself to a corner and started to pray while I heard the massacre still going on.
Then he slowly walked towards me, the screaming subsided and I could only hear his footsteps.
"What are you doing?" he asked
"I'm praying to god" I answered, stuttered
"What for? He doesn't know of this place"

then I woke up
PHFEW was I glad I did.

I have many dreams and most of the time when it is over I don't actually wake up. My eyes are still closed and in my mind I realize that I am still sleeping. So then I try to open my eyes or move my body but no matter what I cannot move at all. I try moving my hands, feet, legs, nothing works. In the end my eyes shoot open and I can finally move. I feel very relieved when I can finally move and know that I am truly awake.

Well, anyways my favorite dream that I had was this one time when I was in a town. I remember this one person telling me that if I see a ninja then I will die. So then that scene changed and I was outside at night standing between two cars. I looked up at the night sky. Then out of nowhere there was a ninja jumping from one rooftop to the another. Before I knew it, the ninja was behind me and with two kunai he slit my through and stabbed me in the heart from my back. Surprisingly I was still alive and the next day went to school with one bandage around my neck and the other over my heart. I don' t really remember the ending but that was it. When I woke up from the dream though I remember it felt as if my neck had really been slit but I was perfectly alive lying in bed.

Another short dream I remember I was standing in the middle of a battlefield and there were people around giving me a pistol. I stood there crying saying no. No matter what I did not want to take the gun. When I woke up I think I was actually crying like in the dream which is pretty odd.

It's funny you mention battlefields because I have a dream that tells you how twisted I am. I was in my city and it was a total war zone and I remember my only thought was to fight my way to the mall so I could defend the video game store inside and protect all the video games from the attackers. All I remember is gunning down hundreds of attackers as I systematically worked my way to the mall. Because god forbid any of my precious video games get destroyed.

I dreamed that a cannibal was going on his yearly hunt for humans.Me and my sister were walking back from school when the cannibal's van pulls up. So my sister hides in the backyard and I jump into the bushes. The cannibal catches me but not my sister. So he brings me to a school( it was actually my elementary school in real life) he doesn't eat us immediately (there were other children) I remember some children escaped. And then I found a notepad on the floor and my dream ended there. no

I don't remember my dreams very often. Depressing, really. Only a select few have been remembered. And they're boring, so I'll pass.

I very seldom remember my dreams, but one of the only dreams I do remember having was a couple of years ago when I still watched Bleach, I dreamt that I got into a fight with Byakuya Kuchiki and killed him by stabbing him with my arm.
