Lucid dreaming techniques
    #634814 - 05/17/02 09:09 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I had a fairly kewl experience in a dream a while back.

I ofttimes try to gain controll of my dreams, usually SOmething is attacking me, and I I blast stuff with some kind of energy ball/beam, or use some kind of telekenesis. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't, but as long as I choose to fight, I always win somehow. In this dream I used words to controll things. I was trying to do something to something that, now that I think about it, kind of resembled the shroomhermit's avitar, (but it was dark). They were about 8 feet tall, and there were several of them.

Nothing was happening, then it occured to me to use my voice as a weapon. I lifted up my hand and said "rise" in a commanding voice, and I was able to send whatever it was flying into the air. So i just started flinging them over the horizon.

Maybe Shroomhermit has dreams of fighting your avatar.
That's a neat ability you have though. I usually can't even recall my dreams (much less use techniques to control their outcomes). What exactly is your dream-tek? I mean how does it work. Do you start thinking about what you're going to do as you fall asleep? I want some cheap entertainment too!

I don't really do anything beforehand, sometimes in the dream i will be doing something stupid, like holding a baby and smoking a cigarette, and I'll think to myself What the hell am I doing? I'm not that stupid! Then it dawns on me that I wouldnt do that in real life. I'm dreaming. Can also happen if someone I know is acting out of character.

Anything unusual can alert me, such as being attaked by giant evil grimmaces. Sometimes I'll even catch things like rapidly changing location or perspectives. Like if I'm watching myself, or sometimes someone else doing something, and then I switch over to first person.

I used to have nightmares when I was younger. They usually involved some inanimate object coming to life and coming after me. I don't get that anymore, anything that comes into my dreams trying to be all bad and shit gets it's ass kicked.

Damn! You're lucky. The closest I've gotten to knowing that I am dreaming is when I partially wake up and realize it. Then I try to drift back to sleep and continue the dream. Sometimes it works but usually I have a different dream and forget that I was dreaming. If I am able to continue the dream after partially waking up (which is so rare I can't even recall a time this happened) it gets kinda' weird (if memory serves correctly).

Baby Hitler, I think you influenced my dream last night. I was in the basement of a large shopping center with a group of new friends and a girl I had the hots for (also unknown in real life).

They all gave me some presents for my birthday, which made me feel awkward because I hardly knew them. There was cash, a new camera, some books, etc. I stammered some thank yous, but then I noticed they were all supressing a laugh, in a very sinister way. Then I looked at all the gifts and they were all breaking down into some kind of goop.

Suddenly the girl I liked and I found ourselves surrounded by these demonic beings. We fled up the stairs, but then I thought, "No way, man, I can use powers and defeat these guys too!" So I turned around, but as I headed back toward them my mind was full of doubt and I had a feeling I wouldn't be able to summon any powers after all. I ended up fighting those bastards tooth and nail and winning, though.

I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't read your post.

About 2 weeks ago, I had a spurt of lucid dreams where I was able to control my dreams 3 nights in a row. I have read somewhere that you are more likely to have a lucid dream if you are really tired physically, but anyway, I'll try and describe how I came about the lucid state.

The first night, I had a dream I was in some huge brick warehouse with the roof off, so I could see the sky. I had a friend with me and in the dream as I walk walking, I realized that I'm dreaming. So I'm like okay, REMAIN CALM, (if u get excited u will wake up) and try a test to really see if u are dreaming or if this is part of the dream. So this is what I did to test my dreawm, I said I wanna see a car full of hot girls drive up beside me, and then all of a sudden this fucking ugly K-car pulls up with semi-good looking honeys inside

The 2nd night, I was walking in a large empty parking lot inside a city surrounded by buildings, and I just felt like I wanted to jump up high in the air (kinda like in the Matrix). So when I thought of this in my dream, I became aware and again tried to test this. I ran and jumped, bounced off the pavement and soared waaaaaay up in the air! I was thinking to myself this is so ridiculous and fun! Then I saw people walking down the parking lot and i decided to try and shoot them with my hand (gangster style) I again jumped up high in the air and I wanted my hand to turn into a gun but it didn't. No matter how hard I thought i couldn't make my hand turn into a gun, which is probably a good thing anyway.

So to sum it up, if u are in a dream and u do become aware, try to remain calm and not get too excited, just do something really silly to test that u are dreaming, because if you test works, then u can do anything u want.

For those of you interested in training yourself to be able to lucid dream, I suggest checking out this site

http://www.geocities.com/HotSprings/Oasis/8515/html/techniques.html


I've tried it myself, but have only managed to lucid dream twice, and even then only for a short period of time. I think it could be really interesting if you could get good at achieving lucid dreams at will.

Cheers,
Jono.

I am still not quite sure of what lucid dreaming is. I mean... I read definitions, expenations. But its my turn to ask. One night i fell asleep, i knew i was dreaming. I was in nothingness, but not really. Anything could happen and my mind made it..i thought it and it happend. It didnt last too long before i woke up though. Also i was really comfortable. When i sleep unless im tossing and turning alot i dont know how i feel. But what i do know is right before i fall asleep, that transition feels so great. It usually lasts a split second, but sometimes i can extend it for a short while. But if i ever try too hard, i wake up and it goes away and i have trouble falling asleep again. Does this mean anything

I have TOTAL control of my dreams whenever i dream. I also have done experiments while in a "lucid" dream. (i didnt know they were called that until i stumbled onto this thread.

I wrote about this on the achieving that extraordinary state of mind thread.but i will cut and paste it here. i dont know the terminology behind them but u will be able to get my drift once u read it.


"
I dont know if this is what u are looking for but it might be able to help. after 21 years of dreaming i began to be able to control my dreams (be awake and know u are still dreaming). And after many attempts of this it began to get alittle more intense, like i would achieve the "controling part" and then allow myself to wake up slowly, the more i let myself wake up the more of my sourndings became evident. There is a point in waking up that u let all sound in but are still in dream like state, so after finding this out i started trying different noises. The most profound one is a repetitive noise (like a fan). As i allow myself to wake up and start to hear this noise i focus all of my energy to the noise. The noise gets louder and louder however the dreamlike feeling gets more intense. The only way i can describe the intense dream is like eating a ounce of mushrooms and falling asleep. As i began to so called "peak" my mind starts to move around the room and sometimes out of the room as though i began to travel and during this travel i see visions of people and things that my mind can only describe. Once i have mastered this i found that it is very very very easy to fall back into the trance like dream while i am still awake however i have to close my eyes and concentrate on the sounds around me. but after i wake up it just slowly trails off till i am back to my normal self.


People i have explained this to tells me this is a old Shaman tek that only few have mastered.

if u have any more info on this or if anybody else experiences this please post it."

I also have a great control over many of my dreams, not all. i also have a great ability to pull myself out, and 85% of the time, wake up afterwards. when im in the dream, i close my eyes, and squat in a corner, no matter what is going on, ive found that it wont/cant touch me, and i can pull my way out, i always here like the climactic part behind me though, such as if i hear a door being banged on, then it is open when i trun to leave. it sounds weird, but i used to use this trick when i was little. it makes a sounds similar to water finishing going down the drain..... dreams are great, when ever i get in them, i try to experiement, and test my boundries. or a day that i dont have to work/do anything, i try to make myself sleep is long as i can, to catch another one. i think dreams are like trips-it speaks through a concious you can only touch doing certain things.
peace
