About a week ago I had a very confusing and powerful dream. I was briefly talking with someone, then the dream went black. I saw a blinding white light, as if I was staring at the sun. Then I felt a hand on my shoulder and I went to grab it, and when I went to grab it in my dream I also went to grab it for real, and woke up from grabbing my shoulder. When I opened my eyes, I had the image of the white light in my eyes, like when you look at the sun and the image of the sun is there for a while then fades, but this was from a dream... what do you think?
Seeing a light in a dream is always good
You will finally have a answer to one of your problem
your dream was directly influenced by what your body was doing. it was a lucid dream, not quite what people experience during REM sleep. it was more imagination due to your waking state than a dream
