    I only recall 3 to 4 times when I was actually aware that I was dreaming.

    In my first lucid dream, I was in a parking garage and I was screaming "I KNOW IM IN A DREAMMMM" then I woke up in the middle of the night. Random.

    Second, it was a wet dream. Believe me, it sucked. Woke up before anything happened. (well i'm only a teen)

    Third, I had the best one. I was walking through the city, I could fly, etc. When I woke up, I was like wow.... I think I viewed life in a more positive way ever since that dream... I still remember it.

    I'm gonna go practice lucid dreaming, sounds more fucken awesome than IM.

    Lol, i've read about it. I've tried it before, but it only happens to me when I least expect it. I started to climb a ladder made of rope, and when i got to the top, i saw myself sleeping on my bed. I floated through the roof and sat in a tree, right next to a bird. I woke up then, but the most amazing part was like floating out of my body, it was weird. I broke out of it for a second, and could feel myself twitch, then i went back into it. It was cool stuff though, although i dont really know how to control it.

    twice. it's unreal. when falling instead of waking up, stopping it and floating. real matrix feeling. I had read about it for years but never experienced until much later, and only twice ever.

    The great thing about lucid dreaming is that it actually feels real, and you have control. It's basically a virtual world, and you can do whatever you want. It's not like daydreaming, but it actually feels real.
    I'm gonna add LD to my hobby list. haha.

    Oh and it sucks when you are aware that you are dreaming, but you don't have much control of your dream. I pretty much wake up after 10 seconds of realizing i'm dreaming. but if I realize it and i am controlling myself, then it gets awesome.
    it's like being awake 24/7

    I lucid dream when ive been up 2-3 days and im just at the point where i cant go any longer without sleep. The way i check if im in a lucid dream is by pinching my nose and breathing in. When your lucid dreaming you actually breath, but in real life no air goes in through your nose. Reason you can do it in your dream is because your not actually pinching your nose.

    Really the coolest thing to experience ever.

    I always do. I have studied it for years. It is exhilarating, and I can have sex in my dreams as well. YES, I will admit this, if you have sex lucidly, you will have a real life accident..so I do not do it often.



    I just like to fly mostly and try to goto outerspace. I can only get to the ring of the atmosphere, and then get so scared I wake up. Like unctrollably, I am going to see God scared.

    You should try salvia. It's insane, and words can't describe it sometimes. My first time i had my fan turn into a sunflower, then all of a sudden i was in a field of sunflowers, and girls were running through the fields. There were strange sounds, like people talking, but not able to be made out into words. I need to do it again sometime, really eye opening experience.

    i could have sworn that there was a post like this somewhere....deja vu

    yes, i lucid dream....i had more experiences when i was younger. there's an excellent book out there...once you train yourself how to dream lucidly, it'll stick with you....

    i've never done drugs and i don't drink....so all of my experiences have occured naturally.

    i lucid and on occasion suffer from sleep paralysis - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis .. which is why i try to avoid naps now...cuz there's nothing more frustrating in the world than being awake but not being able to get up, move, or wake up...

    Lol yeah naps are pretty much an instant trigger for the paralysis if you go through sleep paralysis often. I let myself go straight into sleep "aware" if the sleep paralysis is triggered as I'm falling asleep. It's probably the best method to become lucid out there.

    If you go through awareness during sleep paralysis you should practice controlling your heart rate and staying aware as your body "falls asleep" and you will go straight into a lucid dream. For me it's like all the laws of physics just end as soon as I figure out if I'm asleep or not. Usually how it is, if I open my eyes and my room is dark I'm really awake. If I open my eyes and my blinds are open and the sun is shining through, I'm asleep.

    I've done so many different tests while lucid dreaming. If you haven't done the clock test you should. That's where you imagine that you've a clock or watch on your arm or somewhere near you. Then you look at the time, look away and look back and usually it's hours off in just seconds. Also, looking at yourself in the mirror. I always see a blur personally.

    There's so much you can do. One thing I do is jump into pictures on walls and it accelerates me to some other place. I know the experience would be different for everyone since we've all unique minds.

    I think sleep paralysis and lucid dreaming is something everyone should experience. For some reason I go through sleep paralysis nearly every time I fall asleep or wake up. I know people who don't normally experience it can induce it by sleep deprivation or waking up early in the morning just slightly, then trying to fall asleep but keep their mind aware.

    You'll usually feel buzzing, hear loud noises, etc. You won't miss it ;P

    Haha yeah, I've noticed a lot of people who have never heard of it but experience it often end up thinking they're being attacked by ghosts or that they're possessed or some shit. Alien abductions, etc.

    Not saying that stuff isn't real but once you've experienced sleep paralysis and seen/heard/felt all the different hallucinations that can come with it and realize it's just in your head, you gotta be a little skeptical.

    I am anyways. At least about the ghosts and demonic possession.

    Have cheese before bed, 20g about 30mins before you go to sleep - the active ingredient (tryptophan) helps with lucid dreaming. That and nutmeg tea, used by witches, apparently, works well to make you remember dreams. Amazing what you can pick up on the intarwebs.

    Wow this is cool. I've guess I've heard of it but didn't realize it was this common.

    I don't think I've ever had it...I'm jealous lol

    What sometimes happens to me is I'll be just either barely or about asleep and suddenly I'll jump up. This last happened a few weeks ago and happens quite a lot. I was dreaming I was slipping on a rock and falling and before I fell I violently jumped up with my heart racing. I think my brain can't determine reality from a dream when this happens. Are there any technical terms for this?

    I think it falls in with hypnagogic jerks. Where you suddenly jump up or jerk a leg or arm.

    This happens to me every now and then. My leg will immediately change positions and it wakes me up or like YoungGuns my whole body jumps. I like it when it happens because I remember the dream a lot more vividly.

    oooooooooooooooooooo, i've never tried looking at myself in a mirror b4... i gotta try it next time.

    the one thing i try and do is walk through walls. in fact, it used to be my trigger to see if i was lucid dreaming. i'd start with my right hand and push my fingers against the wall....and all of the sudden, the wall would get soft and my hand would go through.

    my experiences tend to be positive and enjoyable.... the only scary experience i've had where auditory hallucinations...where i could hear a bunch of whispers from no where...and a dark presence in the room in the corner watching me. :yield: when you're half awake and hearing stuff like that and can't run or move... it's a bit scary
