    Last night I Dreamt that my ex husband finally

    decided to take me back. The weight of the world was lifted, and I finally inhaled, because it felt like I've been holding my breath since I left him three years ago. I was so happy in the dream. I could feel his essence again, his beautiful soul was with me.

    It is for me. I know this is maybe wrong

    and I should't be running from my problems but whenever something really bad happens and I'm very upset or if I'm very stressed I just cuddle up in my bed and sleep. Sometimes for days. I don't even need any drugs or anything to make myself fall asleep, it seems like its my...

    Reality

    I believe that dreams are reality, and consciousness is an illusion.

    I used to have trouble sleeping.

    .. Then college happened. Funny joke. Never before have I cherished a thirty minute cat-nap the way I do now. Being this tired is almost like living in a war zone: any soft seat is a threat and boring professors have suddenly become my undoing. And yet here I am- 1:30am...

    An Indescribable Feeling

    For those who meditate you may know what I am talking about or have a similar experience. But my favorite moment is when you are focused and relaxed and you are on the brink of leaving the waking world and you hold back, stay in the moment of falling asleep without actually...

    Sleep rarely comes easy to me at night,

    but in the afternoon I can crash hard in minutes, and even a 40 minute nap makes me feel great.

    I have very vivid dreams sometimes.

    Everything down to the last detail. Even to the point where I can read the titles and authors of books, or the name of that cafè on the corner. They always feel so real. And yes, I know, dreams always feel /real/, don't they? But these feel different, the ones I get from time...

    Sleep In Heavenly Peace

    Some people hate to sleep, why? They fear they will die in their sleep. But I do not. When you sleep, you are away from your problems. Sleep is bliss, sleep is happy. I love sleep. When I sleep, I feel detached from painful reality. So, sleep in heavenly peace...

    The Place Where Time Is Irrelevant

    Escaping into the darkness of the mind, time slows or stops and changes at the whim of the subconsciousness. Sleep is where the body heals and regenerates and the mind can "rest" to make sense out of the day.  Everyone needs sleep and I although have never needed much sleep...

    A New World

    When you lay down and close your eyes, your mind escapes from what it is that is really happening in your life and for once, you have complete control of a situation and can go with it however you wish!

    Every time I'm having a bad day,

    not feeling good(emotionally /physically), or just need to refresh my mind I'll sleep or take a small nap. I always feel like my body heals super fast when I rest up. It's the best!

    Another Life

    When I was a little girl, I would always have nightmares. I was terrified of sleep. My dad told me to take a sword into my dreams to protect me. Since that day, I have become a lucid dreamer. I can control and change the very fabric of the dream itself. It was difficult at first...

    Bliss

    When everything gets a bit too much emotionally, I curl up in a ball under my covers and sleep. When I wake up it all doesn't seem so bad and I can see everything in a better light. I love sleep!
