Crying in dreams

Postby lucidinthe sky » 24 Mar 2013 00:54

Has anyone experienced this?
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? Morpheus

Just had another last night. I am refering to crying like the emotional release variety we experience in waking life. What do you mean by both kinds? Please tell me.

I didnt know if you had meant the kind where one wakes up actually physically crying or when one is just crying in a dream but not really physically.

Wow, you can actually wake up crying from a dream! I would imagine that would be a very intense dream. I've had quite a few dreams where I cried in the dream, but none where I woke up crying. In my most recent, I was lost in a foreign country and really afraid for my life with a cell phone that didn't work. I just said in my mind "I need help right now" and out of nowhere a wonderful DC showed up to help me find my way home and gave me a big hug. At that point I started crying, very deeply. Quite an intense dream.

That is very interesting, that it can actually be real like that. As far as intensity goes, mine are very intense.

A long time ago I had some dreams which made me wake up with a soggy real life pillow from crying, hence I thought that was what you were probably meaning. Interestingly I didnt thou remember the dreams being that intense.. couldnt really remember them well at all except know I was crying in a dream.

I am not a very emotional person, but in dreams have had very emotional episodes. I think for me more intense than most reality...more like when my dad died in real life...my most emotional moment in my life that I can recall. I have cried hard in dreams. Have also had intense fear and anger/revenge feelings.

Ive been thinking further on my past experiences with this. Maybe I just didnt notice the dreams were intense due to poor dream recall?

To be honest, I've never experienced, or recalled, any dreams with crying, or for that matter, negative emotions. Only emotions I know that I had in a dream before are fear and rage, but that stopped happening a long time ago, and I really can't remember the last dream I was scared/angry in. All my dreams now are either positive/relaxing or just plain weird. I would really want to experience a deep, meaningful emotion like unconditional love in a dream. That's on my to-do list for lucid dreaming.
