Lucid Dreaming
    #4717740 - 09/27/05 01:04 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Anyone become lucid? I was reading up on this, it seems very interesting. If you don't know what lucid dreaming is its the conscious realization that you are currently dreaming. Knowing your dreaming you can learn how to guide your dreams and learn to control them. Check out this site-

They have some techniques you can learn to became consciously aware within your dreams.

I have been playing with this for quite some time. It started about 2 years ago, for some reason I realized I was dreaming and started flying. I couldn't hold on to the dream for very long though b/c I woke myself up. After that, it got easier and easier for me. If anything at all strange happens, I realize I am dreaming and can do almost anything. Thanks for that site, it had some interesting things to try (past life). I decided to fly as high as I could once and got very far into space, but got pretty scared of the emptiness of it. Also try "meditating", I have never felt that kind of energy while I was sleeping.. Anyone else have any things they have found while lucid dreaming?

Another cool thing is that you can "wake" yourself if you are having a bad dream:)

On a side note, I remember looking at a magazine a long time ago that had some kind of "sleeping mask" that would blink a red light when you reached REM, signaling to you that you were asleep..

i do all the time, but since i've been not sleeping a lot and doing too many substances it's kind of declined.... mainly just my recall.

ive been working with dreaming for a few months now. i became interested in it years ago, but i've only really become more strongly active with them a little while ago. that along with obes, remote viewing, telekesis, and a few other things. I believe that dreams have a connection to these other things and that we all have the ability to access these things. i think people should really pay more attention to their dreams. it's cool that you are :smile:

I read that its possible to change your life from practicing lucid dreaming. I mean dreams are the subconscious, and the subconscious is our personality, perception of life, and emotions. Why wouldn't it be possible to reintegrate your mind while asleep? There is scientific proof that your mind doesn't know the difference between what it sees and what it remembers. Why not learn to conquer your fear of spiders within your dreams, knowing how the brain works its totally possible.

that is so much easier said than done.

I mean..... even if you know it isn't real. It's still right there, and the thing is... it's so random. You don't know what your brain is going to throw at you if you decide to tell it to try to scare you. You can keep it from throwing things at you with practice, but that's not the same as conquering the fear once and for all.

for example what is to say that you're walking down the street and godzilla all of a sudden appears and squashes you, taking you by surprise and scaring you in the process? Nothing is to say, because anything goes in dreams. Hopefully your mind wouldn't be so mean, but you can't conquer fear without experiencing the emotion first hand.... or at least, I don't think so.

one of those programs where you see what you are afraid of on a computer screen, slowly and gently at first and then more intense with soothing music would be a better approach.... especially stoned because you would soak in the music more than you would soak in the pictures... or so I theorized when watching south park....

i would recommend considering taking 5htp before you go to bed... you can pick this up at any health food store. i often have lucid dreams. your body will convert tryptophan into 5htp... it then converts 5htp into serotonin... happy dreams...

peace

I had what i would call my first lucid dream experience the other night. I was actually in the midst of a sleep paralysis episode and was trying to will myself out of it. I ended up willing myself off the bed to the other side of the room. I could see the bed I was lying on and realised I could float. I then was able to fly around the room like an astronaut. As it was still under sleep paralysis, it wasn't pleasent, as I was still terrified of something and I eventually willed myself out of it completely. Very interesting though.

you're right man.

ninjapixie: that's great though :smile: if you could learn to utilize that ability and use it to your advantage you could really help a lot out in your daily life.

They say GABA or ZMA will help you sleep and give some people very vivid dreams. They didn't help much for me for my occasional insomnia but for some they do work.

I had a 4 month period where lucid dreaming, and even dreaming itself was extremely common for me, but lately I haven't dremt at all.

Lucid dreaming is alot harder than it sounds, and is easy to get lost in. I would ofter become lucid, and then forget, and go back into the dream again, or just lose the dream in all.

Does anyone have any tips on inducing dreams (not lucid, just dreams)? I used to set my alarm every night for the middle of the night and wake up for a little, check my email, and have a glass of water, this helped alot.

Your dreams are suppose to be more vivid in the early morning, before you wake up, that is when it is easiest for me to lucid dream. Like I said about the ZMA, it is said that it will give you very vivid and strange dreams.
