    Step Two) Increasing Dream Recall

    As mentioned earlier, if you can't remember your dreams it makes it that much harder to have lucid ones. So this step focuses on increasing your dream recall. You may be one of the fortunate ones who remembers a lot of dreams, but if you are not, don't be discouraged. There...

    Lucid Dreaming Is The Best Way To Dream :D

    I love having lucid dreams. I was not "aware" of lucid dreaming until a few years ago, but I've always experienced dreams in which I was at least partially aware that I was in a dream. The best dreams for me are when I am fully conscious and where my surroundings are extremely...

    As someone who experiences nightmares

    as a symptom of anxiety, I have trained myself to remain conscious in dreams so that I can wake up and turn them off if they are triggering.

    My Extremely Lucid Dream With A Deam Heath Ledger.

    This was the most amazing dream of my life, BY FAR. It began like this... I was lying down on the local beach on a towel in the sand. What looked like bed posts stood out of the sand around me holding silky sheer drapes on each corner, blowing in the breeze. I was relaxing and...

    I lucid dream constantly.

    I'm always dreaming whether I'm awake or asleep, and it seems I'm always awake whether I'm here or in dreamland. I almost never lose time and I'm generally accurate within 12 minutes if I'm woken at night and asked. One of my friends even had a game going for a while where he...

    I can control my dreams,

    I can remember the entire main dream and continue it after a brief toilet break. When going to sleep just prior to the dream state I can control what direction it can go in.

    I feel like lately I've been experiencing lucid

    dreams. After doing research and such I really feel like that's what's been happening to me. Good or bad? I don't know. It just always freaks me out when I realize I'm dreaming and can't seem to wake myself up.

    What's up, I've got some questions to ask.

    Do any of you Lucid Dreamers have any tips on inducing lucidity in dreams or is it all just natural to you? I really need to see this part of life lol. How often do you have lucid dreams on average? Do you guys ever seek answers to questions within your dreams? Do you get them?

    I once tried to practice lucid dreaming.

    At first I thought I was doing it but when I woke up, I couldn't remember everything, all the details of my dream. And I felt bad because I really wanted to experience lucid dreaming. It's a beautiful experience, this lucid dreaming.

    Every once in a while (about every two weeks

    or so), I wake up inside my dream and take control. Sure, I can fly, and control minds in the dream, but the real rush comes from building cities, having skyscrapers explode forth from their stone prisons. It's amazing.

    From Dreamviews Dot Com

    lucid dreaming is simply dreaming while being aware you are dreaming. You can think of lucid dreaming as being conscious while dreaming. If, by chance, during a dream it suddenly dawns on you that you are dreaming, then you have experienced a lucid dream, regardless of whether...

    It became lucid when the story changed.
