Does the buzzing/vibrating/burning feeling I feel most times during a bad dream accompany a nightmare? Or does it simply signal that the dream is about to change? When falling asleep in my dreams, it happens often. I also notice it when I'm in the hypnagogic state. I always used to associate it with nightmares; maybe it's simply the transitional phase and since I'm imagining something nightmarish after I notice it, the dream changes into a nightmare. Perhaps the nightmare manifests along with the buzzing, or is it really just a transition effect? Rolling Eyes

Sounds like you have an advantage when WILDing, congratulations Wink

It's something called hypnagogic hallucinations (HH), when transitioning from waking state to sleep state, several hallucinations and sounds can occurr. That's probably what you've been experiencing Wink

Thanks ThreeLetterSyndrom! That's one of the things that was bugging me! Now that you've put it that way, I completely agree. HH seems to not only happen when going from the waking state to the sleep state, but from dream to dream as well. If you'd like, you can check out my dream "The Buzzing." As the dream fades away and loses stability, I hear a buzzing sound just before I awaken. Thanks again for your input. Laughing

Hi,

Did you also feel a very strange feeling in your head? I'm sorry I can't explain it better but it something like a buzzing feeling.

Yes I think I remember a strange feeling in my head along with the vibrating/buzzing throughout my body.

[quote="michaeldentico"]Does the buzzing/vibrating/burning feeling I feel most times during a bad dream accompany a nightmare?

No I don't think its a nightmare. Did you feel a strange feeling in your head when you have a nightmare?

Or does it simply signal that the dream is about to change?

Yes and no, yes because something is going to change and no, because I don't think its a normal dream. I'm telling you this, because I have often these experience. So we could learn from each other what this is Smile

When falling asleep in my dreams, it happens often.

Me too, when I fall aspleep, I feel the buzzling feeling in my head and body. I always try to wake up again. So what did you do during this state?

I'm glad we can collaborate on this, Happydream. Very Happy When I recently noticed the feeling while falling asleep, I did not try to wake up immediately. I simply reaffirmed to myself that I was asleep and I was about to begin dreaming, and as the dream began to form, I was interrupted. You can look at "The Half-Dream" if you're interested:

http://lucidipedia.com/logbook/index.php?section=view&dreamnumber=3&date=2009-02-06

What I'm baffled by is why this feeling occurs during dreams as well. My opinion is that not only is it an accompanying experience sometimes when falling asleep, but that it also marks the transition between dreams, or maybe even the fact that we are nearing awakening; sometimes we notice it, others we don't. What are your thoughts? Idea

P.S. This turned up on Dream Moods:

Vibrations
To feel a vibration in your dream, suggests that you need to pay more attention to your intuition and to your emotional side. Alternatively, the dream refers to some sexual need.

Hi,

''When I recently noticed the feeling while falling asleep, I did not try to wake up immediately. I simply reaffirmed to myself that I was asleep and I was about to begin dreaming, and as the dream began to form, I was interrupted'

I maybe know what this feeling means. I recently read a lot of information from other people and I realize that it could be a sign of an OBE. (out of body experience)
Read my 2 dream experience callled ''soul came out of my body'' on this site (see forem meet others and techniques)

You don't have to believe it, and I think most people don't believe it. But I know its real. I once had that strange buzzling feeling too,and it was my first time when I saw white things in front of me that could be my soul arms. I was not scared but very impressed.

I cannot find you dream. Maybe the link is not working.

Cheers

I don't think your dream feelings have anything to do with anything when they're not reoccuring. Sexual need will much more likely manifest in sexual dreams.

'nuff said.

Michael,

What you describe -- buzzing and vibrating as you fall asleep -- have been characteristics commonly associated with so-called OBEs for many decades.

Here's a link to a discussion about the distinct differences between OBEs and lucid dreams:

http://lucidipedia.com/forum/index.php?section=viewtopic&t=722

Many of us have had this buzzing and vibrating followed by an OBE type state -- and when you take the time to compare them, this seems distinctly different than a typical WILD (moving from waking into a lucid dream).

Also, your concern or nightmare type association with these events contrast sharply, I feel, with the positive feelings surrounding your lucid dreams. On an emotional level, we understand that these involve different states.

Robert

Thank you all for all of your intuitive responses! The prospect that this feeling could be the beginnings of an OBE experience is mind-boggling, since I've never experienced an OBE before, albeit did I think I was capable of having one. TLS you made a good point over "sexual desires manifest themselves in sexual dreams," and Robert, I liked your interpretation of the different feelings in different states of LDs. Wink

Robert- I also looked at your book on Amazon; very intriguing, I'll be sure to check it out! I've been looking for some good LD material! Very Happy
