I used to believe that I could make all the scary dreams that I would have that night flash before my eyes before I went to bed. I would close my eyes and push in on them slightly until I started seeing dark colors swirling before me. I thought this was the evil that was going to show up and that doing so would cause me to not have any scary dreams.
When I was younger I believed that if someone touched me while I was sleeping they would be able to see what I was dreaming.
When I was little I used to believe that if I slept on my back that God would take my soul to heaven, so, not ready to leave, I always slept on my stomach or sides....and I still do...
I used to be deathly afraid of going to sleep. I used to think that if you had a nightmare in which you ended up dying, then you would die in real life. This kept me awake for 5 hours almost every night. This also made me extremely scared of Freddy Krueger, since it's basically the same principle. After about 2 weeks I got over it. Oh, and you know what's really screwed up? I was 12. I'm 13 now.
I used to have this terrible fear that if I fell asleep, I would forget to breathe and die. I would sit there all night (or, as much of the night as I could), trying to stay awake so I didn't die.
When I was younger, my sister told me that when you reached the age of 12, you had to take your head off to go to sleep. I actually believed her....such a loser. In all fairness though...she is 14 years older than me, and i was very very little. It still freaked me out though, and i was scared to go into her or my parents room when they were asleep...in case their heads weren't attached
I used to believe that when i was asleep then I was sent to another world and that was anther life.
When I was younger, somewhere between six and eight, I had a bizarre dream where my Mother fell into a giant crack in our Driveway... Well, she didn't exactly fall in, she was pulled in by little chinese kids- that's right, little chinese kids. When I woke up, I was so sad, because I thought my Mom got pulled in forever.
When I was about 6 I read something in a magazine about how people of a certain culture (no idea which) believed that if you slept with your mouth open your soul would climb out and you would stay asleep forever... this scared the hell out of me and I couldn't go to sleep for ages because I was too afraid my mouth would fall open!
I used to believe that when humans slept, our spirits came out to play and fly around the earth all night, and we wouldn't wake up unless the spirit decided to come back inside of us. I thought that dreams weren't really dreams but all the things that our spirits had done and seen while they were flying around.
I used to beleive that you could catch yourself sleeping if you woke up fast enough.
when i was a kid about 4 i used 2 think that when u went 2 sleep when u wake up u were a different person,
I use to believe that the sound of my dad snoring was actually a jar of lollies in the kitchen that would rattle through out the night. I would lie awake thinking about these lollies - i even thought i knew where they where kept. Each morning I would look for them and was very confused as they where never there. very strange
When I was little I used to hear my dad snoring in bed at night, I thought that it was an alligator in there trying to eat the sheets off the bed gulp by gulp so he could get to my parents.
You know how sometimes you have a dream but you can't tell if it was a dream or ture? Well, when I was younger I dreamt that a Barbie Doll Convertable Car with and evil Barbie and Ken came driving by and tried to run over me when I had fallen on the floor. I was always scared to hang my hand down the side of my bed after that and I actually still am to this day. I know it's not real, but if I imagine it hard enough, I can think that the evil Barbie Car is actually under my bed waiting to attack me. And I'm 19!!!
i always used to believe dat if someone said when u choked 'did it go down da wrong way' i thought dat meant u had 3 holes i ur mouth an only 1 of them was da right hole,an if it went down da wrong hole u would choke an i was confused because when i looked in da mirror an opened my mouth i couldnt find da 3 holes
i always believed that when you went to sleep that your eyes rolled back and looked at your brain until one day my mom said "im tired. i think i'll go watch the back of my eyelids." then i realized your eyes dont roll back.
I used to believe that elves came in at night and moved me while I was sleeping, thus my changed position when I awoke.
When I was little I knew people in england were 7 hours behind us on the clock ( I had relitives there). I also knew that if you slept time would move faster. I put these two knolages togeather to come up with the belife that we are all conected in our sleep. So if you were having a day when time seemed to slow down it ment that someone in england was not sleeping there for making your day longer
i used to believe that i could control my dreams by a computer that i had in my brain. i could simply call up a list of possible dreams and "click on" whicheer one i felt like having that night. for some reason my favorite was one called "fish in a bonnet," which was about this little striped fish that wore a pink bonnet and solved crimes.
