Is there anything i can take or do to stop dreaming? Anyone
See a therapist.
Intensive shock therapy, numerous treatments.
just don't sleep.
That's a good question. I'm constantly woken by nightmares. Help anyone?
Sweet, sweet vitamin A.
Really? hmm. I may experiment.
Take control of them through Lucid Dreaming. It's possible to do and quite effective.....you simply need to learn and practice the techniques.
I've only been aware that I was 'in a dream' twice in my life, it was one of the most chaotic dreams I've ever had and I had absolutely no control whatsoever, the second time i positively recall i woke up really violently the moment the dream me realised i was in one. They were really uncomfortable experiences I'm actually quite hesitant to explore the notion I can walk around in a dream and know it is all fiction.
Do you practice it? How have you been able to do it and what is it like?
I haven't done it for years but back when I did, it was really cool. There were times I realized I was dreaming then woke up, other times I realized I was dreaming but couldn't do anything different in the dream and then the ones where I got to do anything.
The last kind are fun but when it happens during a nightmare it's pimp because the dream goes from being scary to calming. I still remember this one time, I was being chased by a big dog that I just knew wanted to eat me. I also knew I couldn't get away....then POOF, i realized I was dreaming and that I had just seen a show that said we should ask the things in our dreams questions. So I turned to the dog and asked, "Why are you here?"
The dog sat down and then started talking to me. Once I spoke, my fear went away and the dog completely changed its demeanor. I don't remember what the dog said but it was cool and when I awoke, I remember thinking "wow, that was the perfect solution to some issue I was dealing with."
just some suggestions;
go to sleep early in the night (dont go to sleep after, say, 1am)
sleep long enough (7+ hours)
make sure your day is an active one
and try sleeping in a different environment
Last night i had a dream I think but am not entirely sure i took control of.
It was really odd. it went from being my knowing it was going to end in heartache to being, just, well- boring. wich i suppose is preferable!
I don't know if i was in a dream, realised it, and took control or if i just had a dream about being in a dream
i want to dream about cool things like that hahaha
"how do you do fido, don't eat me may i offer you a nice brunch?"
"What ho? delightful! *munch* jolly good dish indeed"
I've noticed that when I sleep with the aid of medicine, I have a lot of dreams.
When I fall asleep naturally with no TV on, I sleep just fine.
