Do you dream is color or black and white. I seem to dream in color most of the time but it has a tendency to be surreal and not while defined. How about you?

I always dream and it is always in color. Dreams are nothing but projections of our daily life which however take fanciful forms once we go to sleep.When we are awake in the gross body we go through life and its activities with full conciousness.?When we fall asleep we are in the astral body which relatively speaking is as true as our gross body but it can take several forms as per our thought. A poor man can become a king and vice versa.Once we awaken the dreamworld vanishes and with it our dream conciousness.therefore we find it hard to remember our dreams. But once in a while comes a dream which we can remember with great clarity and is sometimes a foreboding of an event that will take place in the future or has already taken place.When my mother was alive she once dreamt of a robbery in our house and she clearly saw what had happened.She described everything in detail but i dismissed it as a dream. However one week later a thief did enter our house when we were fast asleep in the early hours of the morning and committed a theft.When we woke up i was amazed to see that everything had taken place exactly as she had described it.I told the cops about it too.Finally 3 months later the thief was caught and we got back a small sum of the money he had robbed having spent the major part of it.

Hey VeeJay19! Thank for your great response! I had a similar dream like your mother. Three days before I got robbed at my job as a front desk clerk, I had a dream that it was going to happen. But the dream was not in any real detail. It was more in imagery.

They say if you write down what you remember as soon as you awaken, you will get better at recalling your dreams. Thanks for your response flowerchilde!

My dreams are all over the place. But I always dream in color. And always with sound. Unless it's a nightmare and for some reason I can't scream or something like that!

Come to think of it, I do not recall hearing sound. That is interesting. Do you ever notice that you have more vivid dreams after eating spicy food? Thanks for your response!

I have always heard this rumor. From the time I was in grade school. Until today, I guess. That people will dream in black and white. Nah. A lot of people dream in color. Especially when I was wondering, I had a memory of a distinct RED jacket from a dream when I woke up. Your dreams are surreal? What does this mean? Some dreams are more surreal than others. But I think that perhaps all dreams are surreal. Maybe I am wrong. But there are definitely ones that are more "weird!" If your dreams are too surreal, I wonder why. Are they disturbing? Maybe there is something you can do. Maybe try changing your eating habits. Eat "calmer" food. Lol. Or don't eat much before bedtime. I had problems with dreams being too surreal & vivid, and I never paid attention to what I ate. Some people say health is very important. It effects people differently. But I don't even know if this is a problem for you. Look up the nature of "surreal" in the dictionary. Try to define your dreams.
