It really doesnt affect my life or anything but it would be interesting to know what it was all about
Yikes, I cant believe I stumbled on this thread, i used to get this when I was younger. Always when I was just falling asleep and sometimes able to control or prolong the 'dream'. In my case I would be holding a tiny plastic shape (like the thing that holds a clothes tag on, breaks when you pull off the tab), its in the shape of a hammer, about a cm long but feels like it has the weight of a huge lump hammer. It can be slightly discomforting to have so much weight or power in something tiny, or at times enjoyable.
There was also the sensation of a great white space all around, again sometimes discomforting, sometimes nice.
Im glad I found this thread and I'm clearly not the only person to experience this!
