    Dreamig is an healthy process by the mind, normal person can have between 3-5 dreams a night, other may have more. but there is no one that can tell exactly when brain start dreaming. so I would say you never know maybe Yes maybe No or both.

    Yaa its a normal process to being dreaming once you fall asleep. Actually when we sleep and body get relax after our hectic work load at that time our mind will also get some peace. So when its get relax then only we are dreaming.

    Without getting all into medical or psychological with terminology (because I don't know any of it), I can say that YES, I have started to dream just after falling asleep. A good example was the other day. I fell asleep and then I was awakened by a noise, but I had only been asleep a few moments and yet I had a significant dream. So I believe YES, you can begin dreaming immediately after falling asleep. :-)

    Well i believe that it is indeed completely normal to dream as soon as you hit the bed , because this states that your mind is at peace and you are not awake thinking about world of problems and your mind too wants to pacifiy itself by not thinking about million of day to day chores and problems

    i've read in studies that people normally start dreaming about 45 mins before they wake up ... do you frequently wake up at night?

    Well.....Realistically,how do you know you've JUST fallen asleep, Alastar?
    Read my hub, "Dreams Don't lie."....that was a plug.  Oops!   
    Seriously, Once you're sleeping, which means your "conscious mind" is at rest....shut down....not functioning as when awake....we can't possibly know we've just fallen asleep.

    It may seem to you as though you dreamt All night long, but the truth is, our dreams last only minutes.  Yes, we can have more than one dream, but they usually run non-stop.  This is why often we can't make heads or tails of our dreams and they seem chaotic and disorganized.

    In order to dream, we must be in R.EM sleep.  The amount of time it takes to reach REM varies for numerous reasons.  It may occur quickly for you. 

    Basically, we can dream while we're wide awake....ever heard of day dreaming?  I do it constantly............Peace, Paula

      Good info and u are right, Effer. Btw, had a dream about s***** last night.smile Didn't Freud say S***** dreams R s**-related? I'm a Jung adherent, however.
