      Dream body

      So I have noticed people talking about their 'dream bodies' in several posts. It got me thinking about how I typically am represented in dreams.

      I'd say in most dreams I alternate about 50/50 between observing characters in the dream and actually being one of those characters. The characters are not consistant and have been men, women, children, animals, ghosts, etc.

      One of the few times I have been lucid, though, I was in my waking body and VERY aware of it. Geez, I wish I could do that again!

      What are your dream bodies like? Does anyone else morph and observe like me?

      Ninety percent of the time, I look like the lovely lady in my sig. Chances are, if I'm not her (or some random person), I am me:

      You know what would be good? A big page where everybody could post their most common "dream body" or something. That would be intresting. =D

      Er, dream body....Always myself, actually. (No, i'm not posting a picture of myself, it's too scary)

      Lotsa times me, sometimes with more elven features. OR
      A platinum dragon... I have been struggling to draw it for years now, but I still suck, I am going to start from the skeleton up I think this time, and flesh the drawing out...

      I have been known to take the form of a dolphin or an eagle on lesser occasions too.

      His wrath undoes the wicked."

      Impossible is only that which has yet to be imagined

      Lost soul... I think the reason you are her usually is because you sorta look like her. Although you have a nose I think.

      I'm usually Elli, the white-haired elf in my sig (and the subject of most of my paintings). I'm only rarely myself, that anime girl because I didn't feel like posting my ugly mug again.

      Wow, this is an interesting thread. I'm always just myself in dreams, and 98% of the times I experience my dreams, whether lucid or not, through my own eyes. I never "see" myself in action from outside my body. I've never experienced inhabiting a different body. I wonder why.

      I'm also usually myself. Though I have also been given a metallic covering that is kind of like armor which I don whenever I feel vulnerable or threatened. I've hada a couple of strange ones where I have transformed into an eagle or large bird and one or two where my body seems to crystallize, turning into something like "Thing" in the Fantastic Four, only with gems or crystals... Problem with the crystal body is that it takes a lot of concentration to keep it in a stable form -otherwise the crystallization process continues until it gets way out of hand. I had one "transformation" that scared me... I was walking through what appeared to be a green-house my arms and hands started becoming entwined with the plants and turning into plant tissue -felt too weird and reminded me of the Swamp Thing, so I woke myself up!

      Hmm. What happened to the format of the forum website? Mine's all screwed up -no emoticons or avatars and there are huge blank spaces...

      THOSE darn mod's are playing tricks on you!

      I dont really know, maybe it will be fine later-perhaps just your computer, cause everyone else's is working fine?

      I don't think i'm ever me in my dreams, I don't know who I am. I think it's someone different each time. I have strange dreams.

      I'm not even sure that i'm in my dreams!
      The best times of your life should not be when you're still so young, or else you'll live a life always dreaming of the past.

      erm. everything should be fine. perhaps too much congestion was preventing images from being displayed.
      Each new day is a chance to turn it all around.

      Hmmm. Are you ever lucid?

      I am almost always never "in" my dreams in the sense that I can see myself 3rd person... I am ALWAYS "in" my dreams in one sense or another though -either as an observer, or as an author/creator. Lucidity always requires some level of self-awareness, doesn't it? Unless you just have good recall, but no awareness during...

      I've always been myself in my dreams. In a non LD I can usually see myself but as soon as I realize I'm lucid it automatically shifts into first person. (I think I'm saying that right)

      Um, so far I've been a rich woman, a black guy, and different versions of myself. Each time I saw myself I looked different than what I really look. One time I examined my face carefully and my skin was wrinkly and flabby. It also looked like I was either missing skin or I had a flesh eating bacteria disease or something. I hope it doesn't mean anything

      Edit: I forgot but I was also a half lion/half human. One of those cat boys. It was pretty cool

      Curiosity killed the cat but at least it didnt die an ignorant bastard

      Were you hot?

      ...what?

      I was a black man who liked to surf in one of my more recent dreams.
