When I was little I used to believe that if I didn't cover my ears when I was sleeping, somebody would come and let water go down my ears....
I used to believe that if you had a good dream, it would come true later on in your life but the bad part is that right after it came true, your worst nightmare would come to you with a hammer blow!
For quite long time (4-17) I believed that I must cross my fingers, legs, or arms in order to stay alive while sleeping. I imagined that if I just lay straight as a stiff, I will become one.
my older sister told me that at night you would get sucked into the tv, and walk through the different channels. In the morning you would wake up and remember, and that was how we remembered dreams!
I used to believe that during the night while we slept, we were on the part of the world that was "upside down." Of course our nighttime was China's daytime, so that's when they were upright. Sometimes I would get a floating sensation as I drifted off to sleep, and I assumed that I was feeling the world rotating into an upside down state for me.
I used to think when you slept, you would really be dead for a short period of time, then your heart would start working again.
I used to believe that if you dreamed you were falling and you hit the ground, you'd die in your sleep.
When I was a little girl and frequently woke up at night having nightmares. I would go climb in bed with mom and dad, and everytime I did, mom was sleeping on her back. Well I thought that only mom's could sleep on their backs. So I grew up sleeping on my tummy. When grown tho, I found out it was true. When you are pregnant, you can only sleep on your back, or side! I did learn to sleep on my back.
When i was little i refused to sleep with my bedroom window open even in the hottest summer nights. The reason being even on my second storey bedroom i used to beleive if i left my window open Wolves would fly in and play on my bed while i was sleeping in it. I think it must have stemmed from a dream but it had me terrified for years
when i was younger i read a book where someone slept with a calculator under thier pillow and it made them really good at maths. i took this sptory literally and for a few weeks i slept with books about everything i wanted to learn about under my pillow thinking the knowledge would jus jump into my head..it never did.
I used to believe that when I went to sleep I would climb out the window and go flying. It was so real and I could see for miles. So at school after this I would jump off walls with a brolley trying to do it again.
I think to be honest I still fly in my sleep.
When I was little I used to think if I didn't fall asleep with my face facing the wall then a fire or burglary would happen at night.
i was a really little kid when i was in elementary school, and got made fun of for being so short. so because my mom told me that people grow during their sleep, every night i would lay in bed fully stretched out in the hopes that i would grow. unfortunetly it didn't work.
My parents use to tell my siblings and I that if we played in a fire before bed that we would pee on the bed at night. We wanted to play in the fire they made somtimes sooo badly but, we didnt because we did not want to pee on the bed!!!
when i was younger my bed was by the wall, i would never sleep with my back to the room, always facing out with my back to the wall just in case a ghost would pinch my bum
I used to think if you grabbed onto something hard enough in your dreams, you could wake up with it in your grip.
For weeks I would dream of things, bear hug them or grip them as hard as possible and when I woke up, I would search the bed to see if I was able to bring them into the real world with me.
When I was a child (obviously) I believed whatever thought I had just before falling asleep would be what I dreamt about. I used to lie awake for hours, thinking about Sea World...
When i was young i used to lay my head on my pillow and listen to the tv in the next room. after a while when i was getting really tired i would start hearing this kind of "ba-boom, ba-boom, ba-boom" and i knew it was a heartbeat. what i diddnt know was tha it was MY heartbeat. i was so sure that there must be a camel living in my pillowcase that i screamed, turned on the light, and threw my pillow out the door. well, think of it from my parents perspective. a little girl screamind and siddenly a huge triangular-green pillow flying towards them. yeah i was a nutcase. after being assured that there were NO camels whatsoever inside my pillow (which was now on the floor) i went back to bed. well sure enough i heard the "ba-boom, ba-boom, ba-boom" again and diciden it was simply that the camel was obviously playing soccer and i decided not to disturb him
When I was a little girl, I never slept on my stomache, because I feared God would then be able to see my butt while I was asleep!
I used to think that there were Indians under my bed. I would hear the drums beating if I put my head down on the matress. The longer I listened the more scared I got and the Indians would beat the drum louder and faster, louder and faster until I'd scream for my mommy.
