    I have extremely powerful lucid dreams.

    I know I am dreaming as soon as the dream occurs. I offend can wake myself from these dreams with little trouble, unfortunately that is only when the dream is going well. When bad things occur in my dreams I can not seem to shake my self out of the dream. Last night, I dreamt a...

    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...

    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...

    My Last Lucid Dream

    I got up with the kids this morning,

    but then went back to bed for a while. I had a dream that I was in an old house I lived in when I was in school. To shorten the story, let’s leave it at this: The house is about 100 years old now, about seventy when I lived there. The dream takes place now, more or less. 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...

    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...

    Once I dreamed a scenerio that I thought would make a good novel. I did not like the ending, so, before waking, redreamed it with a new ending. Usually though what happens is that I will have repeated dreams, of a disturbing nature, like being late for a job interview. I can...
