    Default Do You Feel Much In Your Dreams?

    I was talking with this to some people at work. The main conversation was about weird dreams in general, but when looking at most of my dreams I'm extremely detached from myself. Even when I am myself in my dreams I don't really feel anything, emotions mainly and I didn't know if this was something others have felt as well. I find it strange .

    I've been dreaming a lot when I was a child but then I seized to do that. Just lately at older age I started to dream again. I figured always when a lot in my life is changing and I have to process a lot of new information the dreaming gets more extensive. What I did do all over the time is dreaming about a thing thats on my mind to fall asleep. Like a new toy as a kid or a thing I want to build.

    Detached I get the moment I notice it is a dream, but this usually takes time. My gf suffers from heavy nightmares sometimes and this happened even three times in only one night. Then I wonder why she wont recognize while sleeping it's just a dream. But I guess the use of a Feeling function does p√ľlay a pivotal role in this. I know from myself that what I can feel, feels more real to me and nightmares tend to know exactly what scares the crap out of me. So when waking up then drenched in sweat and so shocked I cant fall asleep again for the rest of the night.

    I dont think you're retarded in some way because you feel detached from your dreams, I basically think dreaming is a brains way to cope with things and the dreams meaning itself doesnt really tell you what the brain actually is doing right now. I find people who interprete dreams hilarious, I of course could believe that a dream means something if I want to, but I dont want to. I think it comes in phases, sometimes you are more detached and sometimes you will be more involved, one thing's for sure tho: everybody dreams and when you get older and life changes for you, I promise you the nightmares will come back

    Interesting topic.

    I experience intense feelings in a lot of my dreams - to the point where I wake up still overwhelmed by them and it takes me a few minutes to come to my senses. Rarely do I even come close to feeling anything like that in my awake world.

    I've read that if you don't jerk off enough, it will increase your chances of having wet dreams, since that's your body's way of "releasing the pressure valve". I think the same happens to me with my feelings - since they are firmly suppressed in my day to day life, they burst out while I'm dreaming.

    It's okay to have feelings.

    There's nothing wrong or weird about it.

    I sometimes feel emotions in my dreams, but not often. A lot of my dreams are actually sex dreams (See Edgars post) and they are rarely emotive experiences.

    Most of my dreams concern tragic happenings (deaths, losses, failures etc.). Even so, like ReflecttcelfeR, I usually feel nothing in my dreams.

    For me, my dreams are pure perception and impulse. I may emerge from dreams with realizations that have emotional content though. But I don't think I experience "feeling" while I am asleep.

    I don't remember much of my dreams, but from what I do remember, I feel things, and often strongly feel. I think my dreams are a way of accessing my deep down feelings on things that I tend to suppress in real life.
