Has anyone noticed that doing normal everyday things in your dreams feels better in a dream then real life?
For example I had a dream last night about looking up at the stars and I had more incredible feelings then when looking at the sky in real life.
@sarad YES, i thought of this yesterday too, I don’t know why but things inside my dream seem so much more enjoyable or meaningful, i even feel more alive in my dreams. I don’t know why things in reality seem so dull while in dreams it seems so special and magic in feeling it.
@sarad, Yes! Especially when you try to break down a dream to another person and it ends up sounding completely dry and uneventful; yet the resonating feeling is one that can not be described. I can last remember when I had a dream that entailed me walking down a path on a forest-like hill at night, looking up to see the moon so large and yellow with stars. So simple it sounds in words, but it really wasn’t that way at all. We need to develop a more honest form of communication.
@heartbeat, @selina, – Thank you for your responses! Dreams do seem more meaningful and magical, sometimes I feel an achy or deep desire to have deeper feelings about the things I do in real life, how do you bring those feelings out of dreams and into real life I wonder..
Also a quote i remember reading… “a dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream we dream together is reality.”
@sarad, Thank you :) I love conversing about these ideas of dreams. I can recount one or two times lately where I’ll wake up and be so overcome by the feeling of my dream that for the entire day I hold such a different perspective towards life than the regular day-to-day residue. I’ve finally (after much procrastination) made the effort to write down dreams that I have that night which feel significantly meaningful. I’m interested to document important details to discover if there are underlying patterns/symbolize/scenarios that we do not catch over a long period of time if not written down; for example important dates that you dream on, the phases of the moon, other planetary happenings (astrology), and experimenting with crystals. Maybe giving attention to our dreams outside of that five minute window after we wake up will make ourselves more apt to incorporate those feelings and visions into waking life?
@sarad i think in real life we need other stimuli to give us the same feeling of being alive than in dreams. In dreams we are much more in tune with our deeper feelings while in real life there is this block between feeling extremely joyful and experiencing something at that moment. I think we need to make ourselves more sensitive and aware of our surroundings so stimuli in real life lead to the same joy you feel in dreams. But i do think dreams are more magical than real life seems to be somehow, so i don’t know if you can experience real life things that can awaken those feelings you have in dreams, unless it is supernatural. Maybe when you become more spiritually aware of things then you feel more in tune with life when you are awake. Becoming more spiritually aware i mean developing your senses, and sense of consciousness in the presence.
FACT: Fellings we experience in dreams are multiple times intense. Even about 5-6 times.
I’ve read somewhere about this. Of course they didn’t forget to mention about sex ;> Imagine 5-6 times better sex :D I don’t know why it works like that but it’s true and awesome.
