About Me

I write about my dreams because I remember them. Some are complete nonsense and barely memorable, but some are significantly vivid that it's mesmerizing. And because of that I'd like to share them with the world.

Hope for the Dreamless

http://naturemadesleep.org/
Many of whom that claim that they don't dream or have vivid dreams are just sleeping too much and way to early. An article explains the scientific theory of how those who are more sleep deprived experience greater intensity and brain activity when they sleep. This is from "REM rebound" and as the article explains, REM is the "rapid eye movement" state of sleeping where our eyes move, well, rapidly but our bodies are almost completely still in order to prevent acting out our dreams as they occur. This is supposed to help with the sleep walking although it might not be effective for just about everybody. Researches believe those who are sleep deprived are lacking much of their REM time and thus when they get the chance to sleep, their brain will skip many stages of sleep just to get into the REM period. This time period is where most of the dreaming occurs. Obviously, it would be truly scary to have an extreme vivid dreams every night especially if it's ones with things eating you. And I seem to get those a lot. Although dreams are something that may interest many and having them seem mesmerizing, I think the health and sanity benefits of actual 9 -hrs of sleep would be the most rewarding.

We aren't twins but we think alike...

The other day I was explaining to my older sister my crazy dream about flying in a black balloon across the ocean and then getting attacked by an crocodile. My sister was a little disturbed but not because I was almost killed, (figures) but because apparently she had a dream that same night and all she remembered is about me getting devoured by a crocodile as well. It was so intriguing that we could have had similar dreams, tragically both about me being eaten, but nonetheless we weren't twins and we couldn't blame it on the myth that twins can think each other's thoughts. So I figured I would look it up and obviously nobody has an answer to the unknown. There are theories about your soul moving to another mind but who really knows? 

I have another story to share today also. Here is a dream I had a couple of days ago:

I was standing in the middle of a field and on one end there's a cliff, on the other end a road. As I stood there contently a snake slithered up to me and started attacking me by biting me everywhere. For some reason I knew it couldn't kill but it could hurt me. So I started running away, fast, but wherever I went the snake was always faster and jumping onto me digging it's fangs into my skin. It kind of looked like Nagini from Harry Potter. In order to run away I went toward the road and I knew the snake couldn't touch the road.When I finally reached the road victoriously the snake transformed into a wolf that could go on the road and could also kill me. So it started to attack me and I ran back into the field and Nagini started eating me. Wherever I went I was being hurt or killed. I went back and forth from the field where Nagini stalked me and the road where the wolf chased me until I gave up and went to the other side of the field and jumped off the cliff. Then I woke up. 
 
I have been anxious and I was watching Harry Potter just the other day, so I guess that the dream may have derived from these points but I couldn't help but wonder. Did my sister also see me getting eaten again? What must she think of me.
