I’m 16 and this has been happening ever since I was little. When ever I go to sleep I have nightmares when I do not have the blankets over my head. This doesn’t happen all the time but 98% of the time it does, I have no idea why and its really annoying, can any one let me know why this happens please ?
If you can’t remember your dreams when the blanket is over your head then this may actually mean that this isn’t really an issue with nightmares. It’s more of an issue with not being able to dream in general. The nightmares are just a sign that you have fears or anxiety that you need to deal with.
The lack of fresh air may be what stops the dreaming. Dreaming is often hampered when detoxification is impaired even in the slightest because toxins can interfere with acetylcholine. A lack of fresh oxygen in your body while sleeping may slow down your body’s rate of detoxification. The blanket may also reduce circulation similar to sleeping on your arm for too long.
For example, many people notice they can dream better when sleeping on their backs as opposed to their sides. This is usually due to pressure being taken off the kidneys which allows better detoxification and less interference with acetylcholine in the bloodstream to the brain.
I suggest you stop sleeping with the blanket over your head and try to record your dreams for at least a week. Then use our dictionary to see how the symbols may be indicating a problem you have so that you can try to find a way to confront the problem that is triggering your nightmares. This may stop the dreams from happening altogether.
