Sorry to go off on that tangent. It's just something I've always found fascinating and I love it when I discover others who are aware of their dreams, remember them and can relate them in detail.



Anyway, great dreams all you Talk Budgie addicts!!

Oh my, am I happy to find another dream enthusiast!!
And that was the term I was lacking in my description, at the time I couldn't remember the exact words in English.
In one of my lucid dreams with a simple snap of fingers I managed to magically make ice creams appear in my hand and really had a blast, it was like an ice cream party!
I also have a dream journal, of course!
I will not derail this thread further, maybe soon I will have a TB related good dream.

I think there is certainly an addiction to other people's budgies with me! Especially from here! I sometimes dream that my flock has expanded exponentially and the big worry in the dream is how to take care of them! The new flock invariably includes a lot of my departed birds who come back, and the odd few from TB have emerged too! I won't say which, don't want to offend anyone! But some of you do know that I carry round a rogue's gallery of my favourite budgies from here on my iPhone, and show people! I'm never really sure what they really think about that!!

(even though in reality it definitely is not as I live right near the city!!)


Lol

I feel so honored to be a special guest star in your dream!
I would love to visit Ireland or Australia though

LOL, how funny Niamh! Funny too that Dee in particular was the star in your dream . Interesting how dreams are many times just so random.

While doing therapy, I have also found out that it's possible to train the mind in hopes of having a more active role in dreaming as in "taking the lead" in the dream to our advantage.
As Deborah mentioned about "Lucid dreaming", I did it ONCE. At the point I realized it, I took advantage of the thing I'd want to do most... fly! But, when I flapped I only levitated off the ground and hovered in place, I couldn't do more than that. Then... I went 'back' to a previous dream and "fixed" it and made it end how I wanted it to .

Although I read several articles about training yourself to do it, I decided not to pursue being able to lucid dream. Something about it really scares me or freaks me out for some reason, and because of that, I'm afraid it would throw me into a nightmare.

I remember most of my dreams.. when I was a student, I lived alone in a house (no roommates) and sometimes I was afraid that someone would break in while I was sleeping. Yes, I was that afraid! So one day I dreamt that someone broke into my house, by the time I realised that I was looking at the open door (which the thieves left open) and then I felt someone grabbing me by my shoulder. Then I woke up! It was so "alive" that I remember that 10 years later strange, huh?
And yes, I have that thought sometimes, meeting you all guys! Wouldn't be great if you all came to Greece???

The only dream I've had related to TB was that there was an issue with the budgies and it was immediately fixed through the forums, so, even in dream land TB is super useful

Haha I'm glad I'm not the only one

The trip to Bundaberg sounds like a lot of fun Lyn I'm sure we had a great time
And Gigi - raspberries dinner!! that's so funny although I do like the idea of living in a forest that would be so cool

Yes TB is ingrained in our heads I think lol

All dreams have incoherencies like yours and that's what dreams are. Dreams are all based on coherencies from our consciousness like your association with TB, but then our subconsciousness always conjure up interesting twists...also kind of like how my wacky mind always come up with wacky scenarios and dialogues for Skipooterky, wait...so does this mean that we all have an 'inner Jedikeet' who creates these fantasies and over the top scenarios?

I have mentioned once that I had dreamt Gisele was bred by Lindsay at CuteLittleBirdies and she had come to my house one day to check up on Gisele. I could never fathom how that scenario formed in my dream, but everything else was quite coherent and that's what dreams are.
