Neck Soreness And Stiffness

I woke up this morning feeling like someone put me in a neckbreaker, and so the left side of my neck has been sore and stiffer when I try to move it to the left so no weightlifting for me today and I will probably take it easy the next few days. 😀

I had some dreams but I did not voice record them, and the last time that I woke up I realized how late it was so I jumped out of bed with my dreams still on my mind but they quickly jumped out of my mind.

Recently my dreams have been pretty boring and I have not really cared about remembering them somewhat subconsciously and / or consciously, and so my brain has not really been trying to remember my dreams and even when I do they quickly leave my brain.

But if I remember something later I will try to add it here.

*Added The Next Day*:

When I was in bed either before I went to sleep or after I woke up briefly, I remembered part of a forgotten dream from the previous night, but I accidentally went back to sleep without voice recording it so I mostly forgot it again.

I think that the dream involved me moving around (maybe walking) past / by various options / choices, my dad was possibly in the dream at some point, but that is all that I can remember now of this dream.

The end,

  1. I’m sorry you’re having such terrible neck pain. I hope it gets better soon.

    It seems you have used up all your dream power and are refueling. After so many back to back lucid dreams I’m not surprised. I feel I’m in a similar boat. Just a sporadic interesting dream here and there. Maybe take the time to make a really good lucid dreaming goal /plan.

    1. Thank you Moment, it is not as bad as you might think, I think that I will be okay. 😉

      Sometimes this happens to me, in this case it is partly because of my reaction to others (which is probably one of the reasons I have issues with anxiety), sometimes my blogging becomes tied to others in a way and that can effect / affect me; for example I was piggy-backing(?) off of your lucid dream success which was helping and challenging me.

      Sometimes during times like that it seems that my subconscious will then become easily effected / affected by minor things (some real and some assumed) so quieter periods of less comments, likes, views, and posts from people I follow or who follow me et cetera can lead to part of me subconsciously assuming and feeling like typing my dreams does not matter really and that people do not really care about them and that it wastes too much time et cetera.

      Sometimes I accidentally implant this idea myself with my own thoughts et cetera, and my subconscious will accidentally act on that.

      So that kind of sensitivity and over-awareness and trying to predict things et cetea that often happens at a subconscious level and partly a conscious level probably plays a role in my anxiety as well, but that is just my guess. 😀

      1. I think we all fall victim to the high and lows. Communicating, corresponding, receiving positive feedback, can be a high that may fill a void. When it’s gone, the contrast can leave us feeling slightly empty. Of course social media likes and what not is just a minor example, but in general I think a lot of people shut down experiencing extreme highs because they don’t want the corresponding extreme lows. Or more so they/we are shutting down the lows which in turn shuts down the highs. We can’t open ourselves up to one without opening ourselves up to the other.

        I know anytime I go on vacation I get insanely depressed when I come back home. I have such a fantastic time either out in nature or hanging with good friends, then coming back to the mundane is such a buzz kill 🙂 Sometimes I’ll avoid taking vacations when I’m content with life out of fear of rocking the boat. I know the high of the vaca will send me spiraling out when I get home. I don’t know if that’s normal or not.

        I don’t think typing your dreams does matter honestly. Not much really does. But if it makes you happy, then it matters. I type all my dreams, but only post select ones. Though in the past month I only type select ones as well. I was spending 2 hours a day focused on dreams and it just became too much.

        ——Separate Note:
        We talked before about how common or uncommon it may be to dream in the third person. I posted a question to my facebook friends about how they dream: 1st person, 3rd person, or more as a movie you’re not apart of. I’ll be curious to see how many people respond and what the results are. I’ll make a post about it later

        1. Hello Moment,

          Well said.

          Thank you for sharing that, I do not really take vacations now-a-days and when my family and I used to it was mostly boring because my family and I are pretty boring 😀 , but I do not think that I experience that; and so I also wonder how common is that.

          Thank you for being honest and telling it like it is, typing dreams every day is definitely time consuming when you type them like we do, I usually spend over an hour each day on them as well unfortunately.

          Nice, I am curious to see the results.

          Thank you for commenting,

          1. I’m sorry you’re family is so boring haha 🙂 Boring is of the mind. A perfect vacation for me would be to sit in the forest alone by the fire. I’m sure most would view that as boring.

            Well, hopefully you enjoy typing your dreams. I think it’s nice to have them on file in a way. And I don’t know about you, but if I take the time to type my dreams, I’m also taking the time to think about them, analyze them, learn from them , incorporate them, and sometimes even drawing pictures or creating images on photoshop to represent them – which makes it even more time consuming. I do really enjoy it, but I also question – should I be doing something more productive with my time? But I feel like the reality is the time I spend on my dreams would probably be spent watching Netflix or doing some other non-creative pointless activity. And doing things that make us happy is super productive and beneficial in its own right. And obviously if you do get some inner knowledge from you dreams/lucid dreams than that’s also beneficial.

            And I enjoy the comradery of fellow bloggers posting on similar topics. I like WP because people seem a bit more real on here and I’ve never seen anyone writing negative comments or having pointless banter like on Facebook. I’m going off on a tangent now, but I think social media can be a great easy way to find like minded people to connect with, but I also find it hollow and empty at the same time. I have great friends all over the country, but none where I live (other than family). For me relying too much on internet connection leaves me feeling more alone than just being alone and connecting with no one, but having a taste of communicating with people about interesting topics is also encouraging and motivating.

            Haha, I guess it’s like anything, we can use alcohol, drugs, exercise, food, social media, etc to feed the ego and give a temporary dopamine boost. But in the end it’s just a bandaid that’s bound to fall off or get all crusty and gross on the edges [ used bandaids totally freak me out 🙂 ]

            Ok, sorry for the rambling…

            1. Hello Moment,

              Thank you 😀 , you perfect vacation does not sound that bad; I prefer to be away from most people when I want to relax as well and being able to enjoy nature too is nice but.

              You definitely got me beat when it comes to putting your recorded dreams to better and more use, well done, and I agree.

              Thank you for sharing that and I agree, I definitely have found Facebook to be hollow and empty among other things and I enjoy it here on WordPress.com better, and I am close to deleting my Facebook account again (which I only have so that I can use the Publicize option on WordPress.com).

              That was actually well said and not rambling at all in my opinion, there was no need to apologize but thank you, and thank you for sharing that. 🙂

            2. Yea, I like Facebook to lightly keep in touch with friends and watch their friends grow up. I also use it to know what kind of events and concerts are happening in the local area. Other than that it seems like one giant ad/meme/fight about nothing 🙂

              Thank you. Sometimes I go off on tangents 🙂
