    Dreams!

    I've always had very vivid dreams. I'm one of those folks who dreams in color and can even have lucid dreams sometimes. My honey, not so much. He would usually not dream at all, or perhaps not remember his dream, or he would have nightmares.

    I didn't realize this when we first went "primal"(from being veg*ns), but lately I've been noticing that he is telling me about his dreams more often! Sometimes they're still scary or weird, lol, but going from not dreaming at all to dreaming pretty regularly? pretty cool.

    Not sure what the significance is, more fats? better vitamins? better protein sources? better everything? lol! Whatever it is, I'm liking it

    I have very lucid dreams about flying and levitating. I can hover and tread air with ease.

    I personally am "living the dream" right now.

    Most my dreams I would rather not remember anyway. Nothing better than a really vivid dream where you have won the lotto or learned how to fly then waking up with that split second of confusion and then thinking "crap".
    Went Primal January 24, 2011
    Lost 105 pounds in 5 months
    Currently 130 fat pounds down which is 120 pounds on the scale while putting on 10 pounds of muscle
    According to my kids I am looking more and more like the Hulk every day

    I never had dreams until I was in a helicopter crash at the age of 25. I didn't hit my head, but the doc(s) think something happened during the crash that triggered it.
    Now, when I do dream, it's just about bad shit that I worry about happening in my life; kids/wife dying mostly. Luckily it's only a couple times per month and once I wake up I can handle it.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

    I'd have bad dreams too!

    Isn't lucid dreaming extremely annoying? I've expierenced it about twice in my life, but because I realized I was sleeping I woke up. I would hate to have that all the time, I'd wake up 6 times a night

    I got trapped in a lucid dream once. I knew I was dreaming but couldn't wake myself up--it was actually a little scary. I was screaming my name lol! Ala Alice in Wonderland--"Wake up, Jenna! Wake up!!" Ended up putting myself in a minivan and crashing it--woke up on impact lucid dreams are insane!

    When I was a kid I used to dream a lot....when I grew up and started living a very unhealthy lifestyle for a long time I didn't dream....I have recently started having dreams that I remember again, I thought maybe it was a supplement I started not to long ago, but who knows? I like it though, mostly they are good dreams but pretty weird. Its fun to me to see where your brain goes when you are sleeping....I see places and people I'd never get to see in real life.

    Paleo-bunny, me too! I had to learn to fly. At first I could only jump and fall softly. Eventually I could just take off from standing. Never did master left or right, seems like turning always scratches the dream.

    I am often disappointed when I fail to move something with my mind the morning after a telekinetic dream, only to remember in short order that it was only in such a dream that it had worked. Lucidity - makes me laugh because I forget what was real and what wasn't.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I tread air and hover near the ceiling in my dreams. It's the most intense feeling ever and I am totally convinced that I have experienced that. I also have very convincing dreams about levitating objects. However, I have never questioned my ability to master left or right - perhaps because the levitating takes precedence.

    When I said lucid perhaps I should have said vivid. I just go with what I am capable of in the dream because it's such fun. I doubt I am there yet in terms of lucid dreaming.
