I lucid dream often; I wouldn't say I can do it at will, like flipping a light switch, but I can create situations where lucid dreaming is more likely
There are three simply things I do to improve the likely hood thar I will lucid dream:
1) make sure that I'm already well rested. If I'm exhausted I can't lucid dream. So a weekend morning, when I have already slept a good 7-8 hours, but
can stay in bed because I don't have anywhere to go, makes for a good time to lucid dream.
2) disrupt the natural sleep cycle. Everyone has their own sleep cycle where they move from a waking state (or near waking) and deep sleep and back
again. Mine takes about 90 minutes. Its at the end of the cycle that REM sleep occurs and you are likely to dream. If you move yourself closer a
waking state at the same time your body wants to preform REM than you are more likely to be more aware if your dreaming. Using some type of soft alarm
to disrupt your sleep cycle when your in REM but than allowing your self to "snooze" helps.
3) be aware and open to the weird/mistakes/impossible things in your dreams. All dreams have things that are just not right and if you were mindful of
them you would know with out question that you are dreaming. Problem is your not use to questioning the world around you; awake or sleeping. Most of
the time you go through life just accepting what you see; so when you dream it's no different. But if you get into the habit of questioning your
seroundings; than you'll also do it while dreaming simply out of habit. What I do when I've decided "I'd like to lucid dream this weekend" I'll start
playing mind games a few days before; wherein I question everything in the waking world.
So I don't know about demons. I'm not the type of person who believe in such things readily. But I do try to keep an open mind in life.
I can't say my lucid dreaming attacks anything bad; most of the time it's a pleasint experience if a bit weird at times.
However one time while I was lucid dreaming; I was dreaming I was in my back yard when I became aware I was dreaming; I didn't plan this lucid dream
so I didn't have any agenda so I just decided to fly around my back yard cause flying is always fun.
Well at some point I get back to my backdoor and I realize theirs a "person" standing on my deck. I didn't conger him and he seemed out of place like
... why would I even be dreaming of this guy unconsciously ... then he asked my to invite him into my house. At that point everything seemed wrong. I
was still lucid dreaming, I knew I was dreaming, I could still control most of the dream but I couldn't control the guy. I couldn't just make him go
away or change him and ext.
So I tell the guy that he can't come in my house and I proceed to go inside myself to put some distance between us. Thats when he got mad and started
to advance and attack me in my doorway. I was able to push him aside and shut the door and look it. Then the dream went from a nice sunny day to a
dark rainy night. I couldn't control anything anymore but I knew I was still dreaming.
The guy locked outside my back door was snarling at me and banging for me to let him in. Then I see him think about something as if a light bulb went
off in his head and he begins to go round my house toward my front door. I quickly go over to my front door and lock it. Just about the time he would
need to round my house I look out my window and instead of the man coming round he has changed to a rabid dog and is barking at my front door. But
even though he was now a barking dog I could still understand that he was demanding I let him in.
It was at that point I decided the best away to stop him was to just wake up ... so I did.
Like I said im not the type to believe in demons, but if they do exist than that was the only time I ran into one.
