I don't know if this is common or not, but it happens for me sometimes, and I was wondering how many of you experience the same. Sometimes when I wake right after a dream, especially if I woke up before the dream could finish, I can go back to sleep, and resume the dream where I left off, letting it fully come to an end. Also, sometimes when I wake up in middle of a dream, even though my body is no longer asleep, I can keep dreaming, even though I'm also aware that I'm no longer asleep. Thoughts?

Edit: Shortened the post up a bit.

I think that happens to me some times, although I don't really pay attention.

Usually I wake up to go to the bathroom every night, around 3 o'clock, and when that happens I'm also usually dreaming. When I come back, I usually continue that same dream.

Yes, that definately happens to me, frequently.

Happens to me all the time, even with the less significant dreams.

Absolutely, this happens to me every morning. It is actually the best time for me to practice lucid.
Of all the exercises, diets, programs, and habits which the world tells us are healthy, the single most important, and most neglected, is an avid practice of Qi Gong.

Makes sense that it would be a good time to lucid dream, but that thought never crosses my mind when it's happening. Then of course I can never lucid dream when I want to :p

It happens to me about 2-3 time a week. Sometimes I don't want it to happen, and if that's the case I will wait a couple of extra minutes before I let myself fall back asleep and my dreams will change pace.

This definitely happens, for me.

In fact, while in a lucid dream, I forgot that dream eyes = physical eyes and opened them, ended up looking physically at my room / curtains, and was like "damn it." I shut my eyes tight in frustration and, to my surprise, was physically back in the dream, with no lapse or falling back to sleep required.

I think that the line between dreams and reality is not only blurrier than most think, but far thinner and more easily permeable.

Yes, in fact, just the other day I was having a rather exciting dream, it played like a movie, and each time my alarm went off I hit the snooze button, went back to sleep, and saw the next segment of the dream. This continued for about four segments, I saw what I thought was the resolution, but on the last bit thought, "I wonder if that's all?" Then the next segment of the dream was a poster hanging in the air saying, "THE END", so then I knew it was safe to wake up without missing any of the plot  :biggrin:

Priceless.
