Dreaming in textures

Postby lucidinthesky » Tue May 08, 2018 2:53 pm

I used to have these dreams when I was younger. Everything would just be white. Nothing existed but a white background. It would have a soft cashmere texture to it and I remember I would feel safe in my dream. I wasn't actually in the dream - it was more of a lucid awareness. Then the white background would slowly transition into black scratchy lines and shapes, almost like a warlike scene. The change in color and texture alternated in waves. This brought on intense feelings of anxiety in me. I would feel trapped because I knew I was dreaming but I couldn't stop the dream or wake up from it the way I could with my other recurring nightmares. When I would finally wake up, I'd be in tears.

Did anyone else experience something somewhat similar?

I thought I was the I only one! I used to have similar dreams constantly. This was back before I had control over my anxiety disorder. My dreams were almost identical to what you described, except mine included more colors. When I was a small child and had those dreams, I would vomit in my sleep (tmi, but it was always coincided). I am synesthetic and I believe that whenever I would experience high levels of anxiety in my sleep, it caused my synesthesia to go crazy in my dreams. I have since gained control over my anxiety and haven't had a dream like that in a few years, when it used to be a weekly occurrence.
