    i had this dream last night of this random as hell guy, like im positive i've never seen him before bc i know dream me found him adorable af and i'd for sure remember someone like that, and in the dream we met at school, became friends, began dating, the usual stuff yk i introduced him to my family, he introduced me to his blah blah and i dreamt of us being together for around 3 years i think before i woke up, like a couple minutes of various important looking situations we'd been through over the time and the most weirdest part is that it felt s o real like more real than any dream i've ever had, and i remember most if not all of the dream very vividly, ranging from backgrounds of places we've been to conversations i had in the dream, i remember all that stuff but as soon as i woke up i went blank on his face and as hard as i try i can remember everything about "him" but just not his face !!!!

    Weird, my dreams usually predicts some small events on the next day. For example: I'm running away and dropped a med pack and it translates me being late to class and leaving my lunchbox.

    I can personally disprove the part of not being able to see oneself in the mirror while dreaming and also being able to read the time on an analog clock

    Could anyone tell me what this means please.
    I have had a crush on this guy (lets call him G) for a few years now and we've already confessed our feelings for each other. I had a crush on this popular guy (lets call him C) before G but I'm over him now. Last night I had a dream where my friends, C, G, and I were all in the same classroom, except G wasnt there yet. C was flirting with me and I was kinda flirting back, while me and my friends were giggling about him. I still have G in the back of my mind and I'm wondering when he's coming back and if what I'm doing is wrong. Somehow C asks me out and i say yes for some reason. G is still not here, and class is almost over but C leaves. After C leaves, G comes back and he looks mad, and I instantly feel guilty. I tell him C just left so he could take his seat. G just says coldly, "OH I KNOW HE LEFT." Then he sits at the other side of the room. My friends wisper to me that they saw him in the hallway and told him about me and C. When did they leave the classroom though??? I feel so bad i we just ignore each other the rest of class, but while we're in class we both start crying. Not at the same time but we notice tears coming from each others eyes. We don't talk though.

    I am artist singer songwriter from Mumbai India. I dream a lot and recent dream i remember is;
    I was on a one day vacation with my favourite and popular singer songwriter from India. I said him that he is doing amazing. I am so happy for him. He hugged me tightly and said. You will perform sooner. We had amazing time together.
    Actually it happened twice. I don't know what my subconscious is trying to tell but i will be famous singer songwriter soon.

    I can wake up in my dreams by just closing my eyes for a few seconds, then slowly opening it. However, in the dreams I like, I can’t fully stay in a dream. I can only squint. If I open my eyes a little more than squinting, I can see reality. I can also hear what people are talking about while I’m dreaming recently. Or is this just me? I can see dreams and reality at the same time.

    I had a dream that i fell asleep when 2020 started but then when i woke up it was january 1st of 2021. I had skipped an entire year and i felt so left behind and it gave me a feelung i had never experienced it made me feel so bad because i had missed out on all the moments with my family when me and my brother play video games together and the world news. It was surreal. Dreams give us new feelings because they put us in impossible situations. The thought about skipping a year of your life like that in a vital point of your life scares you.

    When I was a kid I remembered a dream.
    It's like a video, with decent quality, I saw a man lifting weights. Then a boy with black hair (looks around 5) hit something. It was black, round, flat and thick, it was attached to cylindered steel and the steel was attached to where the man was laying. When the boy hit the black object, the object itself and the steel moved downwards and came back to its original place, like a lever. Then the man got up and just in time when a black bar came out of nowhere and hit him in the face. And the man flew backwards. The kid was laughing and I could hear myself laughing too. And I didn't realize I was laughing in REAL life. My grandma shook me awake and she asked me why I was laughing, and told her, "My dream" 😂😂😂

    I mostly have dreams that make no sense. But I sometimes I have dreams of people I've never met and I speak to them' so only familiar faces? Wrong. And once ih n a while I'll dream of something before.it happens and it does and the supernatural can make it's way into your dream too lets not forget about that. I've dreamed of alot of evil stuff that is beyond my knowledge. This is one of those things humans can never be right about. Just like ghosts and spirits and entities

    I’ve actually been able to read in my dreams before, and when i woke up, I had remembered the words. I ended up googling them, turns out they were in a completely different language that I didn’t know of. The words meant “The Goodly, and To Become Of.”

    When I was about 13 or 14 years old, we moved to Florida from NC. One day, as we were driving in this neighborhood that I had never actually been in, I knew that just around the corner was a house that I had seen in a dream. Sure enough, when we turned the corner, there it was, the house I had seen in a dream. It was very weird and sort of scary! I still cannot explain it!

    I had a dream about one of my friends who died just a few weeks before. I said to them whilst I was dreaming that I thought they were dead. I then realised I was dreaming and asked my friend, in the dream, if I was dreaming. They just looked at me and smiled with such a happy face. I can remember the feeling so well, it was amazing. The dream carried on for a bit and then I woke up. I had this overwhelming feeling upon awakening that they had actually contacted me through my dream and that everything was ok with them now. Is it just me trying to comprehend my memories or is there something more to it? Are dreams real and are we just dreaming now? If dreams are just memories, what is it when we think back about the past, things that we know we have done. Are our memories just dreams? When I think of my childhood, it is very dreamlike. When I try to remember things from yesterday, that is also like trying to remember a dream.
