In brief: Exciting Dream State

Rem or rapid eye movement sleep is when most dreaming occurs.
It is a lighter sleep allowing you to be more aware of your body sensations and your dreams. If you have an exciting experience in your dream your body responds by producing more adrenalin. This may cause an irregular heart beat or an awareness of your heart beating leading to palpitations.
