Default How I know I'm addicted to TB

So last night I dreamt that all the TB members got together in person - it was fantastic!! we all just sat around talking about our birds and comparing notes (no different to what we do online really) except it was face to face!! it was so cool.

For some reason though I dreamt that Dee (Eduardo) wasn't able to make the group catch up but visited me at home - except it was really confusing because we were sitting in my parents kitchen in Ireland and she was telling me how this isn't what she had expected Sydney to look like and instead of realising we were in a different country altogether I was like "oh Sydney is 2 hours away!!!) (even though in reality it definitely is not as I live right near the city!!)


Lol

Haha, a proper TB meeting in dreamland, that must have been awesome even with all the little incongruities!

I can't say I ever had a proper TB related dream, at least not one that I remember of.

One very interesting and funny thing that maybe you have also all experienced while actively dreaming is to actually be able to identify the incongruities within the dream and realizing that we are dreaming while on the dream!
I hope this explanation is not confusing, but this has happened to me a few times. Other times I spot the silliness within the dream but just don't care to acknowledge and just go along with it.

Niamh great minds think alike. Last night it was storming I was half dreaming I had a strange dream last night I also dreamt that you Niamh came to Bundaberg to meet Indi and then there were surprise guests turned up at my place and all of our TB friends came and it was so much fun just talking about our birds and finely meeting everyone in person. Even Miss Deb took a plane from America to Queensland and she had a couple of members with her.... Niamh had Miss Deb blind folded till you got to my place... Indi had a ball with everyone... It was so wonderful then Ana turned up in a limo.... Kate flew up in a Jet plane... Not sure how the rest came... Therm flew over in a Helicopter and took a limo to our house...Dee well she got lost on the way and she finely found our house. Moria and Julie came over by jet and took a limo to our house to Meet Indi...
I don't know what happened next.. I woke up and it was all a dream...I have been having strange dreams while mum is away.... I also dreamt Indi got out of his cage and flew to England... I am by myself at the moment I have never dreamt a dream like this it is usually silly dreams I dream about sometimes....

YES! When we truly acknowledge we're dreaming, we do tend to wake up shortly after. I find the whole dreaming process truly fascinating!
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.

That would be really neat if it happened and we all brought our birds along and they had a great big flight room and were able to fly around with all the others.

That's a great dream, Niamh! I had a dream about TB a few months ago but I said to myself, "This is really weird, I better not tell anyone since I'm probably suffering from an intense addiction to TB." Now I see everyone else is as crazy as I am!

In the dream, you and Deborah were neighbours and lived in this huge forest that took a long time to drive to, but I happened to be passing through and surprised you and Luke by showing up randomly. We all had dinner (which I'm pretty sure was just raspberries) and then I went to see Deborah, who had Sparky, Skipper and a Scooter sitting all in a row on a perch right inside the door, and they were the first thing I saw when I came in. Skipper flew over to say hello, Scooter chirped a bit and Sparky just ignored me, haha

Deb knew who I was right away and she just said "Hey, Star!" Things went on like that for a bit and then I woke up

I also am usually conscious of if its a dream or not, it's very strange

Niamh,
What a great dream!
Isn't it fun when our subconsious combines so many different elements from our lives that truly matter to us?

Star,
Being conscious of a dream during the time you are dreaming has been studied and one can even learn to do it better!
It is called "Lucid Dreaming".

I love lucid dreaming and often in the middle of a dream I'll think - "No, I don't like the way that's going so let's change it to this... and then proceed to take the dream in a different direction.

From the things I've learned through reading about lucid dreaming and discussing them psychologists, it's a matter of connecting the conscious and subconscious mind during the sleep cycle.

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!!
