Mourning in Dream

Postby star64rogue » 22 Sep 2016 22:11

Hi everyone! Miss failure is back.
I had a little question I need quick response on.
Recently, I seem to be "depressed" in ways, I know it has many reasons which came together at the proper moment to break my heart, but it has one remedy I'm sure of, it's the actress who put me in this way (and of course, it was the director in the first place, but, just leave it for now, it's a long story...). I usually melt into the character I want (usually the main character), when I see an emotional movie (not romantic, not at all!), but it usually fails at some point, is it director's fault or the actor's. However, she, despite all those few little directing mistakes, kept it up fluently and when the story was meant to break her emotions completely, I broke with her as well (not to mention the background obsession I had to her).
Okay, that was just to empty myself...
Now, I need to get her in my dreams and talk to her, but the question is, can I cry with her? Won't it break my dream world down? Won't it cause me a lucid nightmare?
Thanks.

The ancient Greeks realized that watching the performance of a dramatic play could produce a feeling of catharsis in the audience - a process of releasing and relief from strong or repressed emotions.

Here are some interesting resources regarding - working with nightmares, engaging with characters in dreams and in active imagination, managing emotional challenges, enhancing intuition, and developing creativity in dreams and in artistic expression.

If you are very lucid, it is hard to have nightmares, because you realize it as only illusion. I still find it somewhat scary to leap off a building at times (when I have partial lucidity from doubt).

The more lucid, the less fear.

Ah, thanks, but I wasn't really talking about fear, I was talking about emotions, heavy loads of uncontrollable emotions which are not caused inside the dream, but a memory, or a trigger...
