A clock is one of the most common motifs in dreams, even though it is rarely the main motif of a dream and we usually don’t remember dreaming of it. Also, a clock is an opportunity to induce lucid dreams. When you look at the clock multiple times in a short period of time while dreaming, the time on it will not be the same, not even close. Clock hands will be drastically moved, while numbers on digital clocks will be different as well. In that moment, all of it can confuse a dreamer, but dreamers who know that this happens only in dreams have a better chance of recognizing a possibility that they are in a dream, which gives them an opportunity to have a wonderful experience.
