Dream frustration? Not this time!
    #614657 - 04/21/02 01:50 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I can't believe it, last night I had the most lucid experience ever in my dream!
I was in my bedroom tidying up when I came across an item I had already thrown out  (in waking reality) earlier that day. I remember saying to myself in the dream "Hold on this isn't right I threw this out today!?" And as I looked at the magazine it just didn't look real anymore, I immediately realised I was dreaming and then said "If I'm dreaming right now then I'd be able to fly" As soon as I said this I lifted off of the floor!! I remember being so excited as I lifted up but then my sight went all funny like my eyes were darting side to side really quickly so as to blur my vision.
I've had few dreams (and I mean few) where I have thought I was dreaming but I have never been able to realise any level of control in a dream before. This was just amazing :laugh:

right on roger, lucid dreaming is awesome. you can work towards it happening again by writing down dreams and concentrating on something when you fall asleep. i've never had a controlling action in a dream but i have realized i was dreaming once. i can't wait to have a full lucid dream, to be asleep and do anything i want in my own mind....

welcome to lucid dreaming :smile:

usually i start to lucid dream when some of my teeth fall.
i am like, shit, i lost all these teeth...it can't be true...hey, wait, this isn't real!
the teeth thing is somewhat recurrent in my dreams and most of the times is the sign i need to realise i am dreaming.

when i am suspecting i am dreaming but am not sure, i check for some paper with writings on it. letters-words always change when you're dreaming.

they say everything is possible, but you have to really believe you can do it. once i was contemplating walking through a wall, and i couldn't do it, i just thought i can't. then some other time i was more confident and i did. it felt real great. flying is the best part though. you have to be confident and practise it. i couldn't float for long the first time.

some lucid dreams are not as lucid as others.

dream on...

It's strange as I had given up on lucid dreaming really as I hadn't had much (if any) joy from my pursuit, you know dream diaries, waking exercises (waking! I said waking! :smile: and investigating various techniques; and then along comes this dream from out of nowhere!

when i am suspecting i am dreaming but am not sure, i check for some paper with writings on it. letters-words always change when you're dreaming.

I find this hard to follow as this particular dream (and most others I have) tend to be non-linear and very much "not of the norm" ie, monochromatic vision and abnormal colour/object relationships, perfoming thoughtless actions just like watching someone else doing things (this dream is probably the one I ever realised a thought).
I don't know why I had a thought in this particular dream, though I do know that I was really debating wether or not to throw out this magazine in waking life, so mabye thats what I need to do focus on something external and then hopefully it will leak through into the dream.
I've just got to say again it's the most amazing thing I've experienced...New worlds await...errm hopefully :crazy:

When I first began consciously attempting lucid dreams, I found it useful for the first couple of days, to stop every 30 minutes or so during the day and think to myself, "Is this a dream? Am I dreaming?" I did this about 20 times a day, and when I was awake, the answer was always NO. But then when I went to sleep, I continued asking myself that question, and once in a dream, I asked myself "Is this a dream? Am I dreaming?" and the answer was YES> Instant lucid dream. Of course, you can't use that technique too much or else you will begin to think you are dreaming when you are not, or something :laugh:

I spend most of my lucid dreams flying around, or climbing on walls and ceilings.. I don't know, I just get the most pleasure from that. Just floating around is very relaxing too. For some reason... it also helps me to think about a large body of water while I am drifting off to sleep. I have had more lucid dreams while thinking about the ocean before sleep than using any other technique. Maybe its that floaty feeling of weightlessness you get laying in some water, I don't know. But it works for me.

I've met other lucid dreamers in a lucid dream before. It's amazing. Maybe I will see you there sometime.

Not long ago i had a lucid dream where i had become dizzy by the fridge in my house, fallen down with the fridge door open, i had been holding on to a plastic container of sour cream when i passed out with one arm still underneath the fridge door, boom. I woke up in some strange astral projection under my covers in bed again, What the fuck, i was still holding on to the sour cream under my covers. I thought i had been posessed or something, i started to scream get out of me as loud as i could. I then got up and ran toward my door, Everything was backwards and way different but i still knew where i was, my walls changed as i got closer to the door only to realize it was blocked by my dresser, i seen another open doorway, ran through it, made a left down the hallway, ran up a flight of stairs, ended up in my Aunties house in Calgary I think, entered a bedroom, and there was two scary looking people i asociated with being my parents floating above their bed, suddenly i looked to the other side of the room and there was my dad again floating above a seperate bed, there where two of him at once, what could i possibly make of this shit?

if you want to lucid dream more you have to trick your mind into it by telling it before you go to bed that you have to do something important after you fall asleep. Try making sure your really thirsty before you go to bed, set a glass of water across the room, and tell yourself you will get up and get it when you fall asleep, this should work as either inducing a lucid dream, astral projection or a little of both, also tell yourself your dreams are real because in theory they are, there is no one reality that is more real than the next, it is only that most of us percieve things that way.
