Question: What language do you dream in?
They say you truly understand a language when you dream in that language.
I’ve only dreamed in English all my life. A couple of times, I had a couple of Chinese words come up in dreams. But only a few words, and never entire dreams. I remember there was once I sprouted an idiom in Chinese that I didn’t even know in my non-dream state! When I woke up, I was so impressed by myself hahaha. I don’t remember the idiom now though :D
Rarest of them all is Japanese. So far, I’ve only had ONE WORD spoken in dreams.
Last night though, I had a dream in English, but towards the last part (just before the mailman rang the doorbell and woke me up damnit!) there was a full sentence in Japanese, and another full sentence reply in Chinese. Both proper sentences and non-nonsensical.
WHAT IS GOING ON?!!
Is this the start of change to come? Is my subconscious brain finally embracing all the other languages I know?? Am I going to be able to dream in these languages more often from now on???
I’m kinda looking forward to dreaming again tonight :3
