    Waking Up In The Middle Of The Night Semi-Conscious

    I couldn't decide whether to put this under lucid dreaming or night terrors, but it's a bit of both. I have many experiences with these things but the past couple of nights have bothered me a bit. Two nights ago I woke up in the middle of the night sitting up. Before waking up I...

    Lucid In The Sky With Diamonds....

    I started having lucid dreams in my 20's, and they have gotten slowly more lucid as I have aged. It started mostly with flying and various other things I can't do while I'm awake. I would be in the dream, and think, now what ever made me think I couldn't fly? I could also jump...

    Enter The Dreamscape

    The truth is, I have only experienced one lucid dream. But I am actively working towards having more. I write an "L" on my hand every day, for Lucid, and am reminded of lucidity every time I glance at it. I perform dream tests too... check light switches, look at a book, look...

    I've Lucid Dreamed a Few Times... Want to Do It More.

    I've only had 3 or 4 lucid dreams in my life. The first I had started as a normal dream. Lots of people were walking in single file across a huge grassy meadow. Then I wondered... Why the hell are we all doing this. Then it suddenly clicked! I'm dreaming! I was able to fly...

    Trying To Tame The Lucid Experience

    I had a lucid dream this morning. After trying hard for a month, this is my second lucid dream in two days. Woo woo! Why is it so hard to insert your consciousness into a dream? I don't know, but it is. The details of my dream... well they're personal and probably not of...

    This is kind of a weird question

    but does anyone know how to fly in lucid dreams? I keep trying whenever I have them but I'm only able either to glide or I can jump really high and slowly float to the ground. Either way lucid dreaming is fun

    Natural Lucid Dreamer

    I started to fall asleep last night

    and I felt like I was pulling away from myself. Lucid dreaming is pretty normal for me, but this was different. I definitely didn't expect it after losing my abilities. I basically had a very odd out of body experience last night. I didn't force myself into it. It just...

    Dream Paralysis And Lucid Dreaming Go Together

    I have had lucid dreams - not enough, however. I wish I had them every night. In the dream, there is a trigger or some anomaly and I become aware that it is a dream. At that point, I realize that I can do whatever I want (fly, etc.), but then it usually becomes too vivid and I...

    What Is Dreaming For Me

    I am not taking any stereotype explanation of what dreams are. And I am seeing that with my own eyes. My viewpoint is simply this: we are spiritual beings, and not just bodies. We are not brain, we have the brain though. But it is not the brain which keeps the memory. It cannot...

    I used to have lucid dreams almost every night.

    I hated them. For a while I was scared to go to bed at night.My reoccurring one was just me at home. I'd wake up, and not be able to tell if I was dreaming or not. The first clue was always that the lights wouldn't turn on, or they would just flicker.There was a sense of...
