Is there a cause for this type of dreaming or sleep stage?
I often spend entire nights waking up from dreams to just fall right back in them when I go back to sleep. Is there a name for this type of dreaming? What causes it and how do I stop it?
Peeples, what I am going to say is controversial, but I believe it to be true and my answer is not a joke. You may be astral traveling. If so, it is your subconscious mind at the wheel. If it disturbs you that much, just before you fall asleep, have a talk with your subconscious and explain how you feel. Then hope it will respect your feelings, but remember, it is in control of your sleeping self. It may be in the process of helping you to solve some of the problems you encounter in your daily life, and that may be why it disturbs you. If you are religious, pray about it if it makes you feel better, but it doesn't take religion to deal with it. You might want to read up on astral travel if you are not very familiar with it. You didn't say what kind of dreams you were having, so there are other explanations that may be just as logical or effective as my answer. Sweet dreams to you.
MizB is someone you should listen to and at least look into what she tells you. She's very wise, in terms of these things.....she has given me some wonderful and helpful info and advice.....especially about "karma."
I'm always interested in the subject of dreams. I'm wondering...and don't laugh....if you are actually waking up, peeples.....or, are you DREAMING that you wake up? Before you dismiss my question.....know that there are many many unknown and unexplained activities that occur in and out of sleep, throughout a night.
Just for the sake of helping you to sort this out....keep a pen and piece of paper at your bedside.....when this happens again....and you feel you have awakened....just put a mark on the paper. If it's there in the morning, you were actually awake. If not.....
As for the cause? It could be so many things. Much of it can involve something very deeply rooted in your subconscious.....Lots of books and websites to cover this intriguing subject.....Good luck!
Thanks. I am going to check into it. I know I wake up because I go take care of my daughter, which usually only takes 2 or 3 minutes but hubby confirms I do. I sleep walk sometimes, don't know if related.
That is some really good advice from fpherj48 (Thanks for the compliment). I know that I have dreamed that I was awake when I wasn't. And your sleepwalking could be related. My family has some heavy astral travelers and at least two are sleepwalkers.
I don't think you can call this type of dream as "day-dreaming", so it must be "night-dreaming", LOL. Seems like you have some unresolved conflicts troubling you to have such things happening. I sleep like a log and just the other day, when I slept over at my mother's house, my sister told me that they would have to literally carry me, if the house was on fire.
