I've never had a bad, scary or such dream. My dad had told me that when I was little I would wake-up screaming(maybe only sometimes, not constantly having happened), never found out why or what happened(in my dream, dreams or such). Someone, on the internet, had told me that I'm blessed(because of never having and have never had a bad or scary or such dream before). Do you know why I've never had a bad dream before?: )thanks.

My guess is that maybe you are blessed - either by not having bad dreams or not being able to remember them. Accept that, consider yourself fortunate and yes, "blessed", and be happy. That's all. :)

You ask the question, "Do you know why I've never had a bad dream before?" Probably don't remember them. If you want, or need bad dreams just watch a scary movie before going to bed. That'll help. :)

..so to you, what does it actually mean to be blessed? -and why am I blessed if I am(if you know or have a reason: )? I am happy, thank-you for all that you said. I was happiest and happier when my dad was here, but since he went to heaven I haven't been as happy:/.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks haha, won't happen. I'm into spooky movies and spooky stuff but never scary dreams have came my way from them. I have had dreams to where how I feel in them emotional-wise I feel in real life, like if I'm sad and/or crying in my dream then I really feel sad and will start crying in real life also:/.

"To be blessed" could mean many things, and could have many reasons. Here's a way of looking at it: a lot of people you know might...I don't know...let's say, have a cold. These are people you work with, live with, hang around with (whatever), but you don't have a cold. That could be considered as being blessed. Your example of not having bad dreams (or remembering them) could be another example of being blessed. Everybody (alright, almost everybody) has had bad dreams in their lives. You say you haven't. That is another example of being blessed. Nobody likes having bad dreams - that's why they're bad dreams. You say you don't. So, if most people, at one point or another, have bad things (or dreams) happen to them, and you don't - that means you're either lucky or blessed. It depends on how you want to look at it.

You also say that you've had dreams where you were sad and/or crying in dreams. Well, that could be considered a bad dream, too. Not the sort where it would wake you up and have you sitting in bed thinking "What the heck was that?", but it could still be considered a bad dream. Something makes you cry in your dream, and I'm guessing it isn't good. The point that it affects how you feel when you're awake...then you might be having a bad dream or two in reality.

I'm thinking that maybe you shouldn't try to over-analyze if you are "blessed". If you feel that you haven't had (or remember having) bad dreams, accept it. Be thankful. And try to have a good life. Should you be wondering "why haven't I got hit by a car?" or "why haven't I had bad dreams?" I don't think so. Some people are lucky (or blessed), and some people aren't so. Why question it?

And - is there a difference between being lucky and being blessed? I don't think so. Some people are blessed with good luck, others are cursed with bad luck. It's however you wish to look at it.

I'm sorry that your father had passed away and since then, you haven't been as happy. Happiness will come. Believe me.

It sounds like when you were younger, you may have suffered from night terrors (which are NOT nightmares) or just simply, normal bad dreams. Its possible that your subconscious has found ways around the nightmare aspect as a coping mechanism because it would be too traumatic for you. It isn't abnormal to not remember scary dreams, and its not abnormal to have very few of them, as dreams are simply just a way to sift through the day's stimuli and thought processes. I very rarely, if ever, have nightmares myself, but that is probably because I'm a lucid dreamer and if things get too scary, I just change things...or realize that I'm simply dreaming, lol.

If you're living a life that isn't producing bad dreams, or at least, have the perception that you don't have bad dreams, then yes...in a sense, you might consider yourself "blessed," but not in a paranormal sense.

Wait, Theresa; you said that dreams are a way of sifting through the day's stimuli. I used to have zombie nightmares, and during my normal daily routine I very rarely came across zombies at work or on the bus. Well, in the street in downtown Houston, there may be...nah, probably not.
I'm just trying to be funny. In actualilty, you and meanderer have a cross-section of valid points to which I can relate. With everyone having a different psyche, everyone handles the stimuli differently, so shygirl either may not remember what she dreamt or doesn't have them. I don't have them anymore, but I used to have scary dreams a lot in my younger years. Now at 49, as much as I can remember, my dreams are kind of normal, though I will have some with my deceased oldest brother in them. Who knows what that means.
Sorry for the loss of your father, shygirl; I can sympathize.

"..and will start crying in real life also:/." -I would still be asleep though. Sad dreams aren't bad dreams to me. When I've said 'bad' dreams haha, I just meant scary or such: ). " The point that it affects how you feel when you're awake...then you might be having a bad dream or two in reality." -Oh, no, my dreams haven't affected me in real life lol; but what did you mean by the part: then you might be having a bad dream or two in reality :?. Oh I'm not/wasn't over-analyzing or anything. I was just curious to why I'd be blessed and/or to what people might say/think about it is/was all: ). I like that haha, your 'Some people are blessed with good luck, others are cursed with bad luck.' Thank-you for your sorry, I appreciate that, I am extremely happy and have found much needed happiness. Thank-you: ). I just meant and mean that when my dad went, pretty much apart of me went with him. I actually know what that means and know how it feels, blah.

I've heard of those, night terrors. About, Its possible that your subconscious has found ways around the nightmare aspect as a coping mechanism because it would be too traumatic for you. ,what would my subconscious be coping about though? I read that you put why but what exactly could be too traumatic for me, the dream itself that my subconscious won't let me see or such possibly? I get the feeling that I'm dreaming when I'm dreaming/or in a dream. I've looked into dreams but never had control exactly over them or such. When I've realized I'm dreaming, my dream just continues haha. '...in a sense, you might consider yourself "blessed," but not in a paranormal sense.', what'd you mean by 'not in a paranormal sense'? -what would be an example of being blessed in that sense or such?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is a day's 'stimuli'?: ). -haven't heard thatin before, that I remember. And thanks, for the sorry also. That was funny though '...daily routine I very rarely came across zombies...'.

Coming from someone who use to have bad nightmares night terrors as a child, consider yourself blessed. I can still remember the horrible ones.. even one that almost killed me. I use to sleepwalk. Once, while on vacation with my mother, ex-stepfather, and friend on a trip to the Grand Canyon when I was 10, my friend and I were sleeping in the back of our Jeep Cherokee while my mother was driving. I got up and apparently said something (all while I'm still sleeping) and opened the back door to the Jeep (mom forgot to lock the doors) and was about to jump out going 70 mph down the highway, until my mom and ex-stepdad grabbed me and they pulled over. Before then, I would sleepwalk often.. after that, I did not sleepwalk again.

These days, I still get nightmares about 1-2 times a week. But strangely, I sometimes know that I'm dreaming, and I don't let it bother me when I figure it out while dreaming. I don't sleep all that well, usually.. tossing and turning, and waking up several times during the night.

I had considered studying Polysomnography while in school, because my school offers courses for that, but I decided against it. Instead, taking psychology and history courses for teaching. Alright, sorry, I'm getting off-track here.

I have always been interested in dreams, and will probably make a new thread about thoughts on dreams, soon.

Do you mean nightmares as in dreaming that the exorcist can see you through the television type nightmares or more in general. I think that maybe the bad nightmare spirits just don't know you are there. Theres just to much in front of them to see anyone.

I think you really need exorcist.
I can recomend from my own experienced Mrs Wanda Pratnicka.
After I read her book 'Possessed by Ghosts' I contact with her by website and She helped me resolved my problems with Ghosts.
