So due to me having great recall lately i have a very vivid memory of a dream where i got shot numerous times and could feel the pain of the wounds very well, after being shot alot i managed to get to a "safe" place in my dream where i could do little more than crawl and bleed and be in pain. help!

I ended up slowly healing in the dream and gettin to a point where i could walk but it was very difficult and i had constant pain in my back and ribs the dream ended having quite a bit more after that but luckily i "forgot" about the pain and was able to continue dreaming unhinderd.


That dream tells you everything you need to know about pain. The first rule of dreaming is everything requires your attention to exist. Which is why when you forgot about the pain it disappeared.

You only feel pain in dreams if you take the time to focus on your wounds. It has nothing to do with expectations, only where you focus your attention.

I've never experienced pain, per se, in dreams. However, I often experience a kind of paralysis in dreams which are tied to lucidity. It usually happens when I am having a nap, so my mind is working better than during night's sleep, but it's as if my real physical body (which is under sleep paralysis) is mixing with my dream body so it becomes very sluggish or almost completely paralysed. It causes quite a lot of frustration and anxiety, but I never realise why until waking up. If I could turn it into a dream-sign then I could become lucid and try to regain power of my body.

I guess it depends on the person and the dream. One of the most realistic painful dream i had was when this guy barged into my room with a gun. I turned around to run when I heard a gunshot and at that moment something hard and painful hit the back of my head. The pain was intense yet numbing, like when you go to the dentist and they hit that nerve spot but much more painful. My body when stiff and I fell backwards on my bed while hearing this loud ringing noise. I remember consciously lying there and calmly thinking to myself "Damn, this is it, its over", Then I woke up...wow. Felt extremely realistic.

I've been shot in LD too but I usually stop the bullets with a wave of my hand before they hit me.

Interesting, I too have experienced pain in dreams ( ND and LD both) but they weren't serious or anything like some of you described it here ( feeling it all day for example).

Just a few nights ago I had jumped to my death from a balcony and I could feel the impact in my head and back but it wasn't exactly painful more like uncomfortable. Before that I was shot with arrows and that felt like needles stuck in my back so pretty far from the real deal too.

In LDs, well I once cut my palm with a knife to see what happens and it didn't hurt either all I felt was some tingling warmth. It was bleeding though.
Altough cutting your limbs off with a saw or something .. :D
Gotta try that one.

I remember a very painful dream where i was thrown out of a two storey window eek2 but i was thrown by a very powerful force so i was at least 50 feet away from the window when i hit the ground overspannen .

I landed on tarmac in the middle of the road and had all the loose bits of tarmac embedded in my hands and face, it felt exactly the same just like when you fall over in the playground at primary school and you grazed your knee, but on a much larger scale!

Im cringing at the remembrance! 0.o

Well, I don't really know about that. I can't remember having dream pain ever although I can remember getting injured a lot and being freaked out. I have been stabbed and just been like help! but it didn't really hurt I was just freaked out. Also I fall... a lot in dreams but I always land at the bottom and I just feel a thud and I'm fine haha. I'm worried after reading this my subconscious might have learned that it can hurt me in a dream cry so I guess I might get my first dream pain soon enough ^^


Current LD goal(s): have an LD and remember all dreams and meet JD from scrubs in a dream

Ive had alot of dreams concering weapons while lucid. One of which I was captured by a military of some kind.I managned to get away and steal one of their handguns and do a wicked trick shot, shooting them both with one round (bullet). I use the MILD method, so ever since then I include a phrase in my routine. Along with the usual "I will rememebr my dreams" "I will remember I am dreaming" I now include "I will rememeber that I will always have a handgun in my pocket if I get in trouble" It has paid off multiple times, I'm not gonna lie. Especially when your in a tight spot and you need a weapon, you've always got the hand gun in your pocket. If you use MILD, its worth a shot (no pun intended) rechterduim omhoog met knipoog
