Hey guys, do you think there are "types" of dreamers? Or classifications? (I'm sure there's a way to word this better…) Like there being such a thing as a Type A dreamer, Type B etc. Or is it completely special / unique?

I'm more of a slow / detailed narrative / dull colors kind of dreamer while my friend has extremely colorful nonsense dreams (for example).

What would your hypothetical type/classification/whatever be?

My dreams are usually insane, every so often I'll have normal ones, but its always giant basketballs, people turning into venus fly traps, three headed monsters and people dying through phone calls.


Do you enjoy your dreams, because I'd enjoy the fuck out of them. >:


Well, I don't think dreams, in my opinion, are categorized by person, but by what induces it and also what it is about. Like drugs or certain food can affect dreams.

Excuse my grammar or spelling, I'm a bit buzzed right now.


There are no categories of dreamers, just various degrees of sleeping disorders. Any dreamer can have any sort of dream.

There are however several categories of dreams themselves:

- Dreams and nightmares
- Lucid and nonlucid dreams (further divided into wake-initiated and dream-initiated lucid dreams)
- Dreams of clarity vs 'samsaric' dreams (Borrowing terms from Tibetan buddhist teachings. There's no properly established term as far as I know to describe the state of conscious awareness in a dream. Note how I differentiate it from lucid dreaming, as lucidity is defined merely by knowledge of the dream state and not by clarity of mind.)
- False awakenings (type 1 and 2, 2 being a slightly disturbing, intense variation of a regular FA where you merely mistake a dream for reality and go about your morning routine)

I'm sure I'm forgetting more than a few things here.


My dreams are a mix between normal and crazy. They often only end up making me do things that are normal in real life, like walking, small jumps, ect., but unlikely/really messed up plots. Sometimes my dreams involve demons and magic, but they normally never do something that is really trippy, mainly just kind of scary. Like tilting the floors and stuff.

I get this a lot in dreams, and have done for years and years so I'm curious if anyone else has experienced it.

What happens is I can't quite see something in my dream and realise I can't get a better look because I'm hunched over and my head won't look upwards. When I try to correct my posture it gets worse until I'm on my knees and eventually pass out face down on the ground while others in the dream observe. It's really distressing because my body feels genuinely restricted and the people in my dream won't understand what's happening to me. I'll struggle and struggle to regain normal posture like I need to hide the problem out of embarrassment or to stop them thinking I'm somehow the wrong person.

I don't usually wake up with sleep paralysis and I've never been curled up or with my chin pressed to my chest like in the dream. Neither myself nor anyone I know has a disability irl similar to this so I don't think it's some underlying trauma or memory.

This is like the most horrible thing.
I used to get it a lot when I was younger, but more like my limbs locking up, especially if my arms were outstretched or behind my back. also happened when running: legs locking up.
Never get locking up now, but occasionally do get the lead-like legs or body.


During your waking hours, constantly reinforce the idea within yourself that you're able to stand up straight and look up. Hopefully you'll repeat it enough that you're convinced of it even down to the subconscious level. The thing that you expect to happen in a dream is the thing that will happen. You're currently assuming that the same curly thing will happen again, so you're trying to replace that expectation with a different one.


Oh, and I have this problem too. I think in real life you're trying to move your legs, but the blankets block your legs, leading to your mind making sense of it that way.



Oh, I've always figured it was probably something like that, seeing as how nothing makes me happier than burying myself under lots of blankets.



This happens to my brother, only in his dreams, cinder blocks physically materialize tied around his feet.

I keep having this same damn dream. I'm not really sure if it means anything or not. It seems that almost every other night I have this dream in which I am laying in a field, I stand up and I look around but there is nothing in else area but a tree far off in the distance. I run to the tree but almost as soon as I reach it I wake up. It's not always like this, sometimes I will encounter people I know IRL on the way to the tree. I will see somebody and wave at them but other then that it's the same everytime.
Perhaps you could offer me some interpretation?


The tree might represent something out of your reach, literally or metaphorically. The people in your dream might just be your brain using memories of recent events, like say people you've seen in the past few days, for some reason or another. Gotta remember that the Freudian nonsense doesn't always apply to dreams.

Have there been any recent changes in your life? Is the tree bearing fruit in your dream? Are you a male or a female (this question is actually somewhat important)


The tree does have fruit of some sort hanging from it but I don't get close enough to identify it. I am male in my dreams. And for recent changes in my life the only thing that I could think of is the loss of my social life. In the past year my social interactions slowed to a stop and I don't really go out and hangout with people anymore. Other than that I don't know of any other changes. Thank you for responding by the way!

How does /yume/ deal with nightmares? Other than not sleeping.

I never have nightmares. Sure, I've had dreams where my computer broke or something, but it would be interesting to have a few real nightmares from time to time…


I only have nightmares when i'm extremely stressed. Usually pertaining being completely alone or bugs.


"to face" was meant not in a physical sense.
face them with your will.
of course it didn't work as you were still scared.

be brave and face your fears. that is a true practice.

>How does /yume/ deal with nightmares?


But it doesn't work if you don't use caps lock :P


I've reached a point where skepticism pervades my thinking process so much that I even question scary things happening in my dreams, and they stop being scary. For example I was dreaming about the devil jumping around my ceiling but all I did was just say 'Hmm' to myself a couple of times wondering about the validity of this dream. Theres an idea.

I don't know about anyone else, but there are some things in my dreams it seems I am just not allowed to do.
For example, I am not allowed to cross a street, even if my dream takes me that way. When I try to cross the street, it first feels like I am walking through molasses. Then when I hit the middle of the road I will get a horrible case of vertigo, fall down, and be subsequently run over in graphic detail (For a while I got run over by a steamroller). Now, in maybe 9/10 of the dreams I remember, I die. Usually a few times per dream, but that's fine, it doesn't usually hurt. Unless I cross the street. Then it hurts, a lot. Not enough to wake me up mind you, so it just goes on and on.

Does anyone else have things in their dreams that they just cannot do, and attempting to do said action results in horrible consequences?


Not something I can choose to do but whenever I come to in a dream sitting in the back of my parents' car I know what happens next. We'll be on a motorway and a lorry will swerve out of nowhere and crush my mother's side of the car. I wake up in shock each time.

If I get into my parents' car by myself it won't move an inch, and I usually get trapped in it with something or someone I dislike (not my parents though. One time there was a horrible tiny harpy made of wood that bit my hand and it hurt like burning). If I drive a car it never looks like any car I've known and always accelerates by itself, usually resulting in a crash. I'll get a shot of pain through my limbs but that's it. Not half as horrible as yours.

I had a dream Maria, Scott, Butch, and Dokursuki went into a house where abamdoned roommates of some person captured people and had a civilization in the house's basement. Kinda like Ao Oni. But they all survived.





that pic.
I love Oni in it.


Somebody create yume oni

do it now


Would it be Yume Nikki style filled with Ao Oni places/sprites, or Ao Oni filled with Yume Nikki places/sprites?


I forgot to mention Doku and Maria apparently had an affair… and Butch and Scott were all bromancy. Yeah… wish I wrote the whole deets of the dream down though.. that's as much as i remember

Felt like making a thread since I didn't notice one about this particular subject.

Does anyone else just… not have memorable dreams? I haven't had notable dream for about ten years. I have a book beside where I sleep to try to record anything I remember, but when I wake up it's usually nothingness. When I was ten or so I remember dreaming about falling out the window with a pumkpin head and ending up on the floor, and also having random nightmares after playing some PS1 Casper game, but after that I don't think I've ever really 'dreamt'.

At most, I can only remember dreaming about doing trivial, mundane things that I always do.

I do usually just sit in bed for a few hours and just think up stuff, like story ideas, that's always fun. But even when I do that, my imagination… it's like, I can't picture anything, it's all in words and descriptions in my head.

So yeaahhh. Anyone else feeling left out about lack of good dreams? Or would any dreamers happen to have any advice at having interesting dreams and remembering them?

Also picture unrelated I suppose.

Nose-plug reality check?


Close your mouth and hold your nose. If you either

-don't pass out/let go and gasp for air


-are still able to breathe through your nose

you're dreaming.


Yep, plug nose, breathe in. It's a dead simple and almost impossible to fail considering that your breathing is tied to your actual physiology.



Neat. I've been trying other techniques and they haven't worked that much at all so I'll have to try that. Thanks.


I understand. I have a Tumblr blog-ish thing for keeping track of all of the dreams I've had, and I'm really having trouble remembering things to write.

I keep on having dreams where everyone is laughing at me. Sometimes I hear the laughter during the day and it keeps getting louder and louder. It's nerve-wracking. What do you guys make of this?

Pic unrelated apparently you need to post an image to post a thread on this chan these days.


If people laugh at you, turn around and laugh louder.


Try to go to sleep a bit earlier. I think lack of sleep can create delusions.


But if it's a monster behind you, don't ever turn around. I was being chased once tried turning around to face it down. I got pounced in the face and force-ejected from the dream so hard I woke up into sleep paralysis.

Guys, I died in dream recently.

I went on some kind of attraction, it had been broken and I feel down. And died.
Even if the "Respawn?" window appeared, I was still scared, and woke up, and couldn't move a muscle.

What in the world could that mean?

And today's dream had scary castle and count Dracula. And some fapable girl who tried to… seduce him and succeeded!
Dracula, though, couldn't have boner and used his hands with giant claws on the girl.

pic unrelated


If you resist the urge to jolt awake, death dreams usually turn into rebirth dreams. Or you'll just forget you were supposed to be dead and start doing something else. It happens.

Couldn't even venture a guess as to what the dracula dream meant. How did you feel about the girl's success in seducing dracula? Do you remember your reaction?


I don't remember my reaction. But after that girl succeeded, my ex came to me (in my dream), and said: "That's not vampire-ish, he should tear her apart, and not to fuck her". At first I was "okay", and waited, that Dracula would do that, but he didn't tear her.
