    What I've Learned

    So I've been a lucid dreamer for a little over a decade now, since I was a young child, and it has taught me so much. First of all I know that when we dream we sort of retreat into our inner world, or mind so to speak. I know this because dreams operate based on your beliefs. For...

    Shut Out Of My Lucid Dreams

    I have had a number of lucid dreams.  I remember floating in a vast darkiness and being attracted to a distant light.  When I reached the light it was like a fog, surrounding me.  I began to rise slowly within this light, gradually picking up speed.  As I got higher, I felt...

    So I think I have. I am fully aware I am

    dreaming. Before I go to bed I think of what I want to dream, I cannot fall asleep until I have chosen something. Then, from beginning to end I control the whole dream. Control everything every character does, if I don't like something I'll restart my dream, or re-do the scene...

    An Avid Lucid Dreamer

    I have been lucid dreaming since I was younger. I can't remember a lot of my early dreams, but I have been practicing a lot lately so that I can lucid dream on a regular basis. I have been able to do a lot of things. A lot of people say that when they first start off they can fly...

    My whole life I have dreamt every time I sleep, I used to only have nightmares too. I was always afraid to sleep, then around 5-7 years old I figured out how to breath under water. I think that was the start, I realized if I could breath under water that other rules could be...

    For the most part I am able to control the

    whereabouts and content of a dream. However if I am really tired I lose control over it and I start having a random dream and it just becomes like Im watching myself do things in a random situation.

    Don't Think of An Elephant

    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...

    Hardly Mastered!
