Feel-good dreams

Apparently, according to dream experts, there are certain kinds of dreams that we all have at some time or another. They include: 

  • falling 
  • being chased 
  • being naked in public
  • and sitting an exam in a subject about which you haven't a clue! 

Some people claim not to remember any of their dreams. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I'd certainly like to forget my nightmares. I can still remember the recurring nightmare I had as a child. A fire engine used to chase me down the entry at the side of our house but I don't want to dwell on that. I want to talk about feel-good dreams. 

😴 πŸ›Œ 😴 

Until recently I had a recurring dream where I would find a new room in my house that I didn't know was there. Sometimes I'd dream that the kitchen had a whole extra section with a magnificent row of cupboards and work surfaces (I have a small kitchen in real life). Sometimes I would have to crawl through a low passageway to get to a new room or it might even be a vast extension to the house and it was always exciting. It was a feel-good dream.

😴 πŸ›Œ 😴 

I don't have this dream anymore. It might be because I no longer lust after extensions to the house. What I have suits me just fine. Although the other night my brain took this dream-theme to a different level. In my dream I discovered that I had another email account. It was in my name but I had no idea that it existed, and it had lots of unread emails in it. I was excited but I'm afraid I woke up before I could open any of the emails and I haven't had that dream again.

😴 πŸ›Œ 😴

Aren't dreams strange. You think you know what's going on in your head until you fall asleep and your mind has... well, it has a mind of its own. 

Can you remember your dreams? 

Do you have any recurring ones and are they ever feel-good?

  1. In my dreams I am forever looking for a toilet or trying to get to teach my next lesson. Sometimes I even dream of a good story but alas by morning it's all forgotten.
    Someone once told me that what you dream never comes true.

    1. I've sometimes had a dream of a good story line and I've tried to hold on to the idea by jotting it down in a notepad and pencil which I always keep on my bedside table but in the morning when I try to read back my notes they are gobbledegook.

      Not sure about dreams never coming true. Certainly the chaotic manner in which they play themselves out means they won't happen like that but I can't help thinking that somebody somewhere has had a dream that has come true. Maybe someone will comment about it.

  2. I often have dreams that have my late mom in them, but it's mixed with current folks in Texas. I wake up very confused and out of whack. I don't remember most dreams and I bet they are the pleasant one.

    1. I hate that 'waking up all confused' feeling. It always happens to me if I fall asleep during the day.

  3. Oh Ros, I wish I had feelgood dreams that I can recall when I wake up. I'm sure I must have them but I only remember my anxiety dreams and for some reason I have a lot of those.

    1. I rarely have feelgood dreams, Val, which is why I blogged about it I suppose. A rare occurence!
