    Default waking up front dreams and thinking that they are still happening?

    anyone else experience this? do you know what causes it?

    my latest one was there was a baby alligator in my bed with me, I woke up and got really scared took my legs out from the covers and wouldn't put them back under out of fear of an alligator. this went on for 15 minutes til i realized that i had been dreaming and there were no baby alligator in my bed.

    no i mean you wake up your ambulatory yet the dream is still going on. you can walk around get a drink of water ect but the dream is still happening.

    Yes I most certainly experience this. From what I remember, it happens when you wake up abruptly in the middle of a dream because your mind wasn't given the time to come up out of sleep in its proper way. As you probably know, our sleep is experienced in stages. Dreams occur in the deepest stage of sleep. To be awoken suddenly during the deepest stage of sleep is jarring and disorienting. Even when we wake at a natural rate, there is a period of time when we are awake, but still coming up out of sleep. So, it makes sense that our brains would get confused about what's reality and what's a dream when they aren't given sufficient time to wake up.

    well, in my winning the lottery dream, it took me getting out of bed and going downstairs to realize that i had dreamt it all. i really expected to go downstairs to pools of money waiting.


    but i now see what you mean =P i can't say anything that vivid has occurred to me.

    I kind of wished this happened to me, because it sounds really cool.

    But then it wouldn't be so cool if I was dreaming of a serial killer or something like that.

    We are living in God's dream and we think it is still happening right now and of course it is!

    What usually happens is that I know I have to wake up and I just dream that I wake up and get out of bed and start doing stuff - it's entirely lucid, like I know I need to take the covers off, start finding clothes etc.

    Then BAM. I wake up and I'm still in the bed. Some times I'm like "FUUUUU...." then doze off again and repeat it. I might do this several times before I actually get up.

    Yeah I'm not talking about lucid dreams, i'm talking about actually walking around while awake but still dreaming and ending up in the kitchen.

    I've only lucid dreamt once and it was on accident.
