I Love Lucid Dreaming

Realize it's a dream! 291 People

    I've tried to dream lucidly a few times,

    but it never works. It's happened on its own a few times before, usually with flying dreams. Once, I was barely asleep and I started to lucid dream I was on a blow-up water slide. I knew I was awake and I could feel everything. I just wish I could get that back. Any tips?

    I Used To Be A Heavy Lucid Dreamer

    I used to have lucid dreams multiple times a week. It was amazing. It's sad that I never realized all the science involved in it though. I always heard from when I was little, "You can do anything you want in a dream" But that always seemed impossible. How could you control your...

    Have You Ever Had A Lucid Nightmare

    I've only had one lucid nightmare and unfortunately it was the last lucid dream I've had in years. I was in my car waiting in traffic under the bridge down the street from my house. I saw the sky turning red and everyone started getting out of their cars. I too got out of my car...

    I'd done it before, by accident,

    but, as I got older, I discovered what lucid dreaming was and managed to find a great book on the matter. I'd had many while reading the book... spontaneous I suppose then I got pretty lazy about it : ( I've learned that it's a great idea to seek answers in your lucid dreams...

    When It Happens I Don't Want To Wake Up

    I wish at times that I could lucid dream all the time when I sleep.  It isn't that I don't dream it is that I never get into a deep enough sleep state to dream.  I always just seem to be at the edge.  I have recently started Brainwave Entrainment sessions...

    How to Have Lucid Dreams

       We are most often lucid while dreaming if we are falling or flying. The intense nature of falling/flying increases our awareness to the point that we become lucid.     We can increase our chance of having these falling/flying episodes while dreaming...

    Escape

    Slipping into sleep is one of the most peaceful and reassuring feelings for me. Escaping from the fears I wake to and falling into the abyss of the dream world, to the realistically impossible that I can perform. In my own head, I live the life I please. I don't run from fears...

    I just spent several hours in a half sleep desperately trying to stay in the dream world. I wasn't really controlling my dreams at the time, more like watching them like a TV show and wanted to watch all the way to the finish, but I guess I just wasn't tired enough to stay...

    Best Lucid Dream Ever!

    It started as a high-speed car chase. Three or so cops were speeding behind me, edging closer and closer. My car hit a bump and spun out of control, until it smashed into something hard. This is the moment that I realized I was dreaming, something inside me shook awake. I jumped...

    It's when my body is exhausted yet my mind is still restless and awake. Perhaps worrying about a person or a scenario. My body will fall asleep while my consciousness jerkily moves between oblivion and mindfulness. There is always a moment of fear, of losing myself, as I feel my...

    Lucid dreaming leads to dream control which makes dreams that much more exciting. You can do what you want, when you want.

    My Lucid Dreams
