It is astonishing the level of dreaming that some are able to reach, it is something next level of lucid dreaming where you are certain that it is real life rather than a dream as you are not given time to think, there are simply so many things happening at once it is truly mind blowing. Your brain is so busy unloading so much context into the dream that you do not have time to consolidate the state you are in. I first need to explain the way my mind works and perceives certain things in order for you to gain a better understanding of my dreaming experience.
There are many factors that can affect the type of dreams that you have as well as the experience you have within a dream. The context of life itself and what you have experienced can very much impact the outcome of the dream and how lucid you are during the dream. I will never deny but support the fact that dreams have very much to do with our subconscious but, I believe that it depends on the type of personality you have as there may be stronger factors affecting you such as a wild imagination. A more flourished imagination can have a huge impact on the wilderness of the dream.
Every time that I wake up from a “strange” dream I try to figure out why have I came to dream such a dream, what has influenced this dream? To put things into perspective I have many wild and crazy dreams but the last one woke me up and leaving me marked. I have dreamed of being chased by a group of people but do not remember the particular reason as to why they have been chasing me. At the end of the dream I have been put in an execution position and shot in the head and at the instant of being shot I woke up alarmingly. What was more curious is that night I fell asleep on the sofa and the dream has happened in a place that looked awfully familiar to the front of my home therefore the first thing that I have done was to look over the window to see if there is someone in front of the house.
“You must learn to control your dreams or your dreams will forever control you.”
Looking at the psychological point of view this dream has been triggered because of infused violence into the mind of the person. This may be true but the personality I represent does not get attached with fear to certain violence as I have been presented towards violence but it has never affected me on a psychological level. I do impose to see violence therefore I am not forced and this may be the different factor that affects the problem at hand. If forced to violence you are more likely to be affected not because of the induced violence but because you are being forced towards something. Furthermore this can have a much greater impact on you if it is something you dislike with certainty.
Things may be seen from a different perspective to someone who does not ordinarily dream and this may be because of their lifestyle. Studies have showed that people who have a more open lifestyle whilst being intrinsic do not dream as much. The frequency of dreams can have a big impact on the effect a dream may have upon you. Not being used to dreaming may make it harder to tell if it is a dream or not. At the same time the attention offered by a person towards a dream can have a big impact, if you do not offer much attention towards the dream it is less likely to have an impact as well as less likely to have an impactful dreams.
