When you get into bed, do you suddenly recall the dreams you had the previous night?

Asked by ubersiren (15130 points ) January 3rd, 2010

This happens to me quite often. Is there a name for it? Does it happen just because I’m getting back into the same place I was in when I had the dream? Does it happen to you?

No, I generally remember dreams when I wake up in the mornings. Great Question ubersiren!!!

If I recently had a good dream that I can remember well, I actively try to think about it as I lay in bed and prepare to sleep, in hopes that I can continue on with it. Sort of like starting a new chapter in a good book.

Actually, yes. Sometimes I do…

You know what? Sometimes I do! I generally forget about that kind of thing during the day, but every so often I’ll be going to bed and bang! I’ll remember a really cool dream from that morning. I’ll think, “Wow, yeah! Forgot all about that! Maybe I can get back into it.” I never do right then, but I have had dreams that I remember during the dream as having had before, if that makes any sense. However, I used to do breathing exercises fro astral projection with some small amount of success. I have a hard time “opening my eyes and seeing” so to speak, and sometimes I cannot make myself go where I want to.

Sometimes, but it’s not just in bed. I’ll just have flashes of my dreams as I go through the day, little bites, never quite remembering the wonderful complexity of the whole plot.
I love when that happens though! It’s like reliving a crazy and exciting adventure.
But then the memory slips away again just as quickly, and for the life of me I can’t remember anything but the feeling I had about it… it’s strange!

No, I don’t recall dreams because some have to do with what I eat like spicy foods, chocolate, and fatty foods in general have given me nightmares. If it’s a good dream I’m dreaming about, then I’ll just go back to sleep and be a part of it until I wake back up into reality since dreams are what you make out of them in the first place.

I usually remember them right when i ake up, but occasionally theywill come to me later in the day.

I wish this would happen to me. It sounds pretty cool actually.

Edit: “wake up, but occasionally they will…”

No, but this would be cool. I wish I could just pick up right where I left off with some dreams.

Sometimes, yes. And I can’t wait to see the sequel. Especially when it was a romantic dream.

Yes, I do, and since I haven’t had any nice dreams in a while, the memories aren’t very restful.
