Ability to think and analyze in a normal dream
PostPosted: Fri 30 Dec, 2011  Reply with quote

Today I experienced something fascinating.

I believe, I experienced vivid thinking and analyzing just like in Waking Life, but in a Normal Dream.

Read this excerpt from my dream today:

Quote:
I remember being in some kind of mall. A friend needed some headphones so I helped her find some. I entered a store and there was a chinese lady on the counter, I asked her if she could show me some headphones. When she came back with some, my friend came behind me already wearing new headphones, so I told the chinese lady that we didn't need headphones anymore. Then I said in chinese: 不用谢 (Buyongxie, meaning You're welcome).

As soon as I said that, there was a pause in my dream, and during that pause I could feel myself thinking in my dream!! I knew that what I said didnt make any sense, and during that pause I was thinking the correct phrase, which came up to me when the pause ended:

"I mean, 不用了 (Buyongle, meaning No thank you)!" I said. And we left the store.


Am I overhyping over this? Its the first time something like this happens to me I believe.

I always thought that normal dreams where some kind of pre-recorded dream we were forced to participate in, and only while being lucid we were allowed to perform thinking and choice making. But this wasn't a lucid dream, in fact, I think I just missed a huge lucid sign in that dream!

Any thoughts?

Perhaps were you lucid, so it allowed you to think by yourself.

That's normal , you are always thinking ,even in your dreams, lucid or not.
You dream recall is just getting better, remembering you thinking in a dream is nothing else than normal.
But the fact of recalling ND toughts is rare.
