I can't throw anything in my dreams for some reason. The other night i had a dream i was playing basketball. Whenever I'd try shooting a basket, the ball would pretty much just drop from my finger tips no matter how hard I tried. Like there's no force behind my shot. Anyone else have a similar experience in a dream?

I had that type of dream (not being able to shoot a basketball) when I was in college. I remembered that it had been a while since I had played any basketball. I figured that it was my subconscious telling me that I was out of shape and my skills were eroding, and that I needed to get back on the court. Stupid subconscious... I never had any skills to begin with!



That was a good chuckle!

You have to practice recognizing that you're in a dream. This is what creates a lucid dream state... When you're in a dream, and you know you're dreaming, so you can change the world around you as you see fit. .



I do this every night, usually in the last few
hours of sleep. I do whatever I want, it's
fun, actually.

Had this one just the other day... I realized I was dreaming, and dreamt that I woke up from the dream. Then, realizing in my dream that I had only dreamt about waking from it, I dreamt that I woke from that dream! I finally woke up for real, only slightly confused.



I've had that happen

Unrelated, I had moderator Face in a dream the other night. I already know what he looks like, but in the dream he was totally different, totally unathletic, and something like 20 yrs old. But it was him. It frustrated me that he was so different, and I hated that he wouldnt do anything I expected him to do.

Now, Face is actually good at interpreting dreams. But i wouldnt want him to have to figure that baloney out.

Was he naked? Face is always naked in my
dreams. All the scars are frightening.
