conscious flying dreams


Recommended Posts

I generally find it hard to get to sleep, unless I've done some hard excersize or been drinking loads (I do need to cut down on alcohol, just not yet..) and then during the night I'll often wake up and go back to sleep, and in the morning when I wake up I'll often not be bothered to get up and just take my morning lot of anti-psychotics and let myself drift off again. When I go back to sleep these days I frequently get these extremely vivid dreams of flying along, just flapping my arms like a bird or swimmer (if you've seen  The big Lebowski you'll know what I mean..). What's more these dreams come one after the other as I drift in and out of consciousness and there is usually an element of "lucid dreaming" i.e. I am semi-aware I am dreaming and can direct the action to a certain extent - apart from exploring the weird dream landscape through flying (which I have got better at over the last year since this started) I won't go into details but I'm male so go figure..

Because of this I think I'm sort of addicted to sleeping and dreaming and this explains why I don't like getting up in the morning - I'd rather face dream-reality than real-reality. There are probably some alcohol and substance-abuse issues mixed in, although I'm currently sworn off illegal drugs, just done a lot in the past. I don't think the dreaming is a problem - not wanting to face getting up has more to do with this depression that hopefully will lift as I get further away from my last toke (I hope! It has done in the past). I'm just finding myself thinking loads about this lucid-dreaming and flying business and wondering what it all means. As time goes on the dreams are longer and more frequent, I have more consciosness while in them and I'm the flying element gets easier all the time. It's like my dreaming mind is training itself to get into these states and I'm wondering what it means and even should I be worried. My dreams are so vivid these days that they sometimes get mixed up with reality in my head.

my husband has flying dreams. he loves them but the more he tries to have them the harder it is. I never have them forever. I just have dreams where I jump really high, like the Pixar "Boundin'" cartoon.

I spend a lot of time wandering when I am awake.  Probably the seroquel, or the craziness.

I do dream, everybody dreams, but most mornings I wake up feeling like I died over night and am reborn.  I rarely remember my dreams - only occassionaly.  I do have insomnia though so when i sleep it tends to be DEEP!
