Have you ever been in a nightmare and knew you were dreaming and tried to wake yourself up?
I've had these horrible dreams and am screaming "wake up ,wake up" until I do wake up.It reallhy is weird!
Yes, I've done that plenty of times. When the dream is too much for me to handle, I do the same thing.
Funny, it works too, I always wake right up.
Yes, many times, though for me it's always, "Okay, if I can make myself move then I will wake up." and I concentrate all of my will on wiggling my toes, or shrugging a shoulder, or something small like that. As soon as I realize I'm in a dream then I can become aware of my real body, but I have to really work at controlling it. There have been a few times when I have not been able to wake myself up for a while, and actually got really tired trying (I know that probably sounds silly when I'm already asleep) and had to find a safe place in my dream and then try again.
Only once REALLY got my attention -- I had a dream that someone was trying to shoot me, but when I tried to get out of the dream the first time it felt like I'd hit an electric fence and I couldn't get out. That's the first time I really wondered what happens if you die in a dream, because mine are so realistic that I'm not so sure my mind would know the difference.
Yes, I have. I've also prayed in dreams/nightmares, and awaken praying.
I never try to wake myself from a nightmare. Why bother. I'll wake myself up, see my wife which is just another nightmare.
