Dreams


Lucid dreaming

Conscious perception of one’s state while dreaming. In this state one can have limited control over their own actions or the characters and environment in a dream. It happens most often to people with a fantasy-prone personality.

Dream recall

Unreliable, though it can be trained. Dreams can be recalled if one is awakened while dreaming. Women tend to have higher dream recall than men. Dreams that are difficult to recall have little affect, however, a dream may be recalled when seeing or hearing a random stimulus. Writing down dreams in a dream diary increases dream recall. It is important to do it immediately upon waking up, as people quickly forget the details of the dreams. Vivid, intense or unusual dream content is more frequently recalled.

Sleep position

If you sleep belly down, you’re more likely to have charged dreams (being tied up, smothered, naked, sexual ones). If you sleep on your left side, you’ll have more nightmares than if you slept on your right side, which evokes more safety.
