    So Real.........

    When ever I dream if I ever come to remember it, it feels very real. I've even woken up feeling that my dreams were more real then the bed I've been sleeping upon the whole night. In my dreams the world seems more in tune to my senses in sight, smell, hearing, taste even touch...

    Soo Real!

    I dream in color all the time. The color in my head is even brighter and easier to "see" than real life. My dreams are intense and I can remember them for hours after waking up. I'm color blind a bit, so it's nice to imagine things so much brighter and deeper.

    Weird Dream ...

    Before I joined this group, I asked myself if I dream in color or not and I found out that I do dream in color. Once I had a dream that my husband cheated me with a girl who wears greeny top and hot pants. So Im pretty sure that I dream in color.

    I Dream In Color

    I have always dreamed in color. I thought everyone did until I began having sessions with a psychologist and life planner named Martha. Martha has a Doctorate as well has many other degrees. Martha told me that a majority of people do not dream in color. I also have almost...

    Not Just In Color

    When I first learned that women dream in color and men in black and white, I was totally surprised.  I am a man, and my dreams have often been in color: technicolor, pastels, powder, vivid color that isn't even possible in real world. I have also had dreams in black and...

    Very Colorful

    I always thought that everybody's dreams were in color my dreams are very colorful and bright sometimes more colorful than real life. I could not imagine my dreams been in black and white it just would be so strange and I don't think I could get used to it.

    Some Statistics

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/02/health/02real.html Childhood exposure to black-and-white television seems to be the common denominator. A study published this year, for example, found that people 25 and younger say they almost never dream in black and white. But people over 55...

    Painted Dreams

    To the best of my memory I have always dreamt in color. Not only that but usually depending on the imagery of the dream itself, the colors are very bright and vivid. I’ve read that the majority of people are in fact unable to dream in color and actually dream in black and white...

    Fever Dreams and Warring Colours

    This particular dream was more about colour than just in colour. It was a fever dream, I went to sleep with an aching head, far later than I should have. I felt sickness coming on so I rolled myself up in blankets and doonas to try and sweat away the fever. It didn't...

    I have never dreamed in black

    and white! I thought everyone dreamt in color! Sometimes I have no clue I'm dreaming until I really wake up. I also will be dreaming and wake up and then go on with my life and come to find out I'm still dreaming! So aggravating lol

    A lot of my dreams are sporadic.

    Sometimes these dreams are irrelevant or they have meaning. A good majority of the time...because your brain is still conscious while you sleep, my dreams will express tomorrow. It's always colorful, too...not like the normal, every day blue sky, green grass, all the colors of...

    I've recently come to the realisation

    that all my dreams, and I mean 'all', take place in the same world. I've been a lucid dreamer all my life, I don't think I've ever 'not' had a lucid dream. And by that I mean i'm 'aware' of the fact that i'm dreaming, and have no unrealistic control over myself or the space...

    A lot of these posts are pretty descriptive of the places I've gone in my dreams this past year. There are different places I go on different nights all within this bigger place I've dreamt up, which kind of seems to be concocted from my home town on the beach and where I live...

    Water Theme

    Lately, I've noticed that athe dreams that stick with me always have a strong water theme.  Typically, there is a boat involved, and often there is trouble, and the water becomes a menace. Got any ideas on meaning?

    Sometimes black and white; sometimes color.

    When a dream is in color, invariably I have two or more simultaneous dreams and one of them is in color while the others are black and white.

    I had a period of 5 years of no dreaming.

    Followed by 10 years of intense dreaming in color. Now, for the last 2 years I dream 90% in black or gray color. About 3 dreams per night.

    Has anyone had exceptional colorful dreams?

    Did anything lead to it. 20 years ago I was taking some antidepressants and I would have colorful dreams. I remember the greens being so green. I have not used antidepressant since and I no longer have vivid color dreams.
