Nightmare Disorder- When a person has
constant nightmares of wanting to be safe.
What is a Dream?
A Dream is a vision that occurs in our brain when
we are deep asleep. Dreams can be often wacky and
can make literally no sense. But sometimes Nightmares
occur and they are considered wacky but at the same
time what you consider terrifying. If you enjoy a
Nightmare if you like being scared then it's probably a
not a nightmare to you. Dreams and Nightmares are
considered the same thing. They are both like small
movies that you think of.
Have you ever woke up and you had a dream but
you forgot what it was? Well, guess what? Dreams are
hard to remember. The reasoning behind this is
because when we are asleep, some parts of our brain
are shut down and not working when you are asleep.
This includes the part of our brain that includes our
If you have constantly have Nightmares and it
includes you wanting to be safe from some monster,
then you probably have Nightmare disorder. This only
occurs during the REM stages of sleep. If you believe
you have Nightmare disorder, go consult a therapist or
psychiatrist to get help to stop Nightmares.
You've most likely have heard the term REM. REM
means Rapid Eye Movement. This occurs when you are
deep asleep. It happens when you have been sleeping
for 90 minutes. Of course, that is when your dreams
start to occur. You can probably tell why it is called
Rapid Eye Movement. Our eyes are constantly
twitching and moving around like crazy during this
stage. Now you know why its called REM!
How to Lucid Dream
Lucid dreaming is actually very easy. But it might
be hard as well because sometimes the dreams might
feel a little too real and you might make it hard to lucid
dream. Anyway, Lucid dreaming has very simple steps.
First, you have to remember that you are in a
dream. You might be confused as to how you can do
this but just come back to your senses that the world
you are in now is not real. Now you can will anything
Second, Do whatever you want! Lucid dreaming
has no limits! You can fly, teleport make a new dream
and more. Just enjoy it while you have everything at
But there are some things about lucid dreams.
When you do specific things something strange will
happen. If you pinch your skin and you pull it, Your skin
will start to stretch. If you look at the ground it will
disappear. Now you are floating on nothing! And if you
look up at the sky or ceiling, it will turn black. But
sometimes that is not always the case. It can be
different but that's usually what happens
Nightmares and Dreams
Nightmares and dreams are basically the same
things. A weird vision that is in your brain that is not
real. Well, for one thing, nightmares are scary visions
that make you want to feel safe from whatever your
nightmare is. It can be being chased by a ghost or killer
or going into a haunted house and getting trapped.
Whatever it may be, it scares you. It could feel realistic
but just remember that it's not real.
Dreams are like the opposite of nightmares. They
give you happy and calm feeling. But it can also be
crazy and it's just a jumble of nonsense. It could be your
greatest wanting or just an amazing adventure. Dreams
are wacky and can sometimes be unforgettable because
of how amazing they are. Even if its not real, it's still a
fun experience with the people in your dream.
The similarities of nightmares and dreams are that
they are little movies in your brain that it creates. And
they are things that occur in your brain and when you

Signs in your Dreams
Signs in dreams are probably always there without
you even knowing it. Some signs have to do with scary
or sad things. One very common one is being chased.
When you are in a dream, then you are getting
chased by a killer, ghost or anything else, Your brain is
telling you that you are avoiding a problem in real life
that you aren't facing to fight them.
If you see yourself falling in a dream then you are
stressed with the waking world or you have been
getting feelings of anxiety.
If you have ever experienced a dream where your
teeth would just fall out then, you are losing confidence
in the waking world. It usually only happens when a
event made a person lose confidence in themselves.
According to Grant, teeth are a bad omen and
represents a bad relationship.
There are many signs in dreams but those are the
only ones I'm going to list because if I listed all the signs
in dreams this page would be way too long!
