Several years ago, I noticed a recurring issue in my dreams. Often, when I’m with dream characters, I don’t actually see them; I hear their voices and sense their presence nearby, but I’m not looking at them. And in situations where I do see DCs, I don’t tend to have any visual recollection of any mannerisms or movements or changes in facial expression. Nothing strikes me as unusual while in the dream, and I still get the sense that they are doing stuff, but after waking up, I tend to just have a static mental picture of the person.
I’ve wondered if this is due to being kinda introverted and not socializing in person as often as others. If that’s the case, this pandemic is definitely not helping that. I have noticed similar issues in my dreams lately, though I can’t tell if it’s any worse than it’s been in the past.
I was kinda drifting away from lucid dreaming around the time I first noticed this, so I never put in any effort to fixing it, but I figure it might be a good time to try.
Has anyone else had this issue?
