Some of the dreams are about what I have been angry about, some are totally weird and I have no clue, others are good dreams.
Does anyone know why this is happening and what it could be called? I have never had this happen before.
I have to disagree with this. We all dream, that is REM sleep and without it, you can actually go crazy. I don't have the sleep studies at hand to link to, but there are many. It is just that many people do not remember the dreams.
If you are someone who does not remember dreams and suddnly now are, I would say to look and see what might have changed in your life, or something that has been on your mind. Our subconscious speaks to us in our dreams (Though some say that's bunk, I believe it) Look for symbols or circumstances that may be similar in the different dreams. How do they make you feel? Relate them to your life if you can and try to see what your brain is telling you. Im not big into the refrences that say "this dream means this or that" carved in stone, dreams are different for everyone, though there is some common dream symbology. Being naked in a public setting, being chased, teeth falling out, there are more.
I find dreaming fascinating, always have, and have studied a lot about it. I lucid dream, it is a technique that can be learned. You are in the dream, but aware you are dreaming, being awake in a dream so to speak. Not only a really fun thing, but if you are a person that has nightmares, it can get you out of them. It has for me on many occasion.
