Do you lucid dream?

Do you truly lucid dream? If so please respond. I feel like I'm in an ocean of fish trying to explain how it is to walk on land. No one in my family, circle of friends, or co-workers understand.

I have two types of dreams. One, where I am just dreaming and another where I am fully aware the entire time. I have been aware of this since I was about 9. I have read about it since the internet was first established and tried everything in my power to keep the experience going. When it happens I have become a master of it. Using it to do things that are out of this world. I am 37 now so when I am lucky enough to experience it, I use it to test reality. I ask questions, talk to people/spirits. I try everything I can to prove to me it’s something more than just me in a dream world. I have read how some believe the dream world and spirit world are in tune with each other. I have called people into my dreams that have passed away. I have had people who have passed away come to me for a year or more until I told them to move on.

I know there are others out there that have truly mastered the lucid dream. I just don’t know anyone that I have in my life circle that can understand. They look at me like I am crazy. I know there are people out there that feel the vale of the dream world like I do. I know there are people who call others into their conscious dreams, who feel the dream ending and try to keep it going because they are in control 100%. People look at me like I'm nuts when I talk about it. I really hope there are people out there that understand.

If you understand please respond because it sucks having no one believe or understand you when you want to talk about it.

I would not call myself a master of it, but I did get good in my teens. I've been out of practice but have been working on it the past few months. I also suffer from occasional sleep paralysis and have learned some interesting ways to combat that while rolling directly into lucid dreams.

I believe you.

ETA: there are exercises you can do before going to sleep that can help increase the frequency.

Thank you for believing. You have no idea what it's like to have someone believe. I keep 99% of my experiences to myself because there aren't many people who understand. However I want to talk about 100% of them because they are so amazing. I wish everyone did it so we could all talk about it and try to figure out if it means anything.

I used to be terrified of my sleep paralysis episodes but during the course of trying to find out exactly what it was all about and reading many, many articles and forums on the subject i got pretty good at rolling into lucid dreams from them.

The key i think is recognizing s/p for what it is and training yourself not to panic whilst it is happening (easier said than done as you will well know) this way you stay in a sort of semi wake/sleep state.

Unfortunately i seem to have out grown my s/p and it now only happens every once in a while, i did manage at one stage to be able to bring it on almost at will just to get to the lucid dreaming stage but i haven't done this in years so would probably need to start practicing from scratch all over again as it comes easy to some but not others, but its well worth it when you get a good lucid dream experience its amazing much better than any video game/movie etc...

This post has actually re sparked my interest in lucid dreaming so thanks for that op, i also believe you if hadn't already guessed from my reply.

anyway just wanted to share my 2 pennies worth .

Definitely appreciate you sharing. I have never had the sleep paralysis but I do understand I am sleeping and my body is in bed lying unconscious. When I was little I would always wake up and tell my mom about my dreams. They were always so vivid and real. I told her every morning because she listened. Then one day she told me when I was 3 I woke up one morning and told her something even I don't believe. She swears I told her I spoke to god all night! Funny thing is, I'm agnostic. I promised her I would use this gift/whatever it is to explore. So just last month I tried calling out my spirit guide because I heard that was a thing. I had a whole list of questions to ask if I ever made contact. On my 3rd encounter I simply asked "is this real?, what is this". The being in my dream told me "it is a form of communication through Reyes". I spent an entire day looking that up because I had no idea what it meant. My father is Mexican/Indian. When I finally understood what "a form of communication through Reyes" meant I immediately thought about what my mom said I told her when I was 3.

I've been lucid dreaming since i was about 6 or 7 years old. I believe it is a less dense form of reality. A reality where our consciousness is free from physical limitation.

If your really good at lucid dreaming, I might suggest that you would be really good at astral projection. Essentially it is the same thing, accept instead of falling asleep into a dream and becoming lucid, you stay conscious while your body is falling asleep, some weird electrical feelings happen and you literally feel your soul pop out of your body.

There are a ton of websites and books about techniques on astral projection. I really recommend you look in to it.

I believe everyone experiences these from time to time, some people forget it or don't really speak to anyone about it so it's forgotten really fast. But there are ways to practice it, how about astral projection//OBE? Do you have those as well?

I understand what you are talking about. I call it dream-walking. I first new about that term in the early 90's, not so much experiencing myself beforehand but my teachers at the time would discuss it. One of them mentioned it as there being 2 types of dreams. One is a dream with metaphorical meaning such as symbols and processing daily experiences and another is what he called a medicine dream. Those types of dreams involve soul travel. As I gained more spiritual insights and power I would have those types of dreams myself.

I later dated a woman who was a very gifted dream-walker. She could visit people and ask them questions which would bypass their normal ego filters and speak directly with their soul. She would also travel beyond this reality. I would sometimes have off-world dreams where I would encounter other beings, see amazing sights and places and I could also ask that person about those places the next day to better understand what was going on.

This is mostly just a copypaste of mine from another recent post because it's valid here. Again, I do not believe in a spirit world but have experienced lucid dreams several times in my life.

"Lucid dreaming has been some of the best experiences of my life. There is nothing like it. It's been some years since I properly experienced one, but the sheer feeling of ultimate personal power and command that you have over your nocturnal destiny is indescribably amazing. It's too bad it's so rare as everyone should know this experience.

Some tips for achievement:

1. Say your own name within the dream. Can trigger the change.
2. Try to read inside.
3. While those are common tips, they never worked for me. What happens to me is simple self reflection. A moment of logical thought within the dream state that brings the realization of your levels of control within the environment followed by pure, PURE power. Whether you use it for ultimate, beautiful destruction or change the world into happy pony land, it's all up to you and you retain the knowledge that there's no retribution for your actions. You can do ANYTHING. You ARE power. It's bliss, pure and simple.

I still dream rather vividly, but there's a huge difference between vivid dreams and lucid dreams. I hope there may be more in my future. "

I have several kinds of dreams.

I'm lucid and can manipulate the dream

I'm lucid but can't manipulate the dream.

I'm not "me" in the dream.

I'm having a dream based on things that affected me throughout the day.

I'm having a dream based on things I will see the next day.

I'm in a school, shopping mall, public restroom, or laundromat.

Lucid Dreaming is an interesting topic. I've only done it twice or so. Always good experiences though, but have no control over inducing it.

Tell me anyone here, have you ever been able to leave the Planet, and go into space while LD?

Thanks!

I used to lucid dream a long time ago. It was fun for a while, but then I started noticing that I was completely wiped out for most of the day afterwards, because it was like I wasn't getting any decent sleep. It was like I was awake all night goofing around in my dreams.

Also, my baser instincts had a tendency to take over. Instead of traveling to a fun place, or testing whether or not anyone could see/hear/feel me as I floated around, I tended to head straight for the nearest girl's locker room.

First off, you are not crazy, lucid dreaming is a real thing for enough people to be considered having some merit.

As an adult I seldom have lucid dreams anymore, but I do remember the few I've had, and had a few good suggestions that help determine if you're going lucid, and to help initiate it.

I was told to listen for your name, esp your FULL name in your dream, this is indication you are going lucid. I was told to study my hands carefully for several minutes before bed, and to meditate on my intention, and will some "lucidness" into my dream.

I tried all the above a few years back and had the most amazing dream of my life. I was fully aware I was dreaming and took 100% control, and first began by levitating, then full on superman mode, racing speeding trains through cities of polished marble temples. I did NO harm in that dream, and felt amazing when i awoke.

I have had failed lucid dreams that went material or sexual in nature, and of course they left me ultimately confused.

One of the funniest lucid dreams I had was sexual. In it I was at a party with coworkers, and a porn star showed up and started hitting on me, it led to her wanting to take me home. But I stated, "we better do this fast, because this is a DREAM" and then my alarm went off and I awoke. If I didn't have a sense of humor I would have been frustrated for years!! LOL

I haven't been lucid in years but look forward to trying to get back into it, since it's one of the best inspirations for doing creative work. Your dreams in general tell you a lot about who you are (hopes/fears/wishes/anxieties), and if you can stand back you can figure out what some of those are telling you.

From my reoccurring and lucid dreams and I can tell you I have a healthy fear of open waters, insane heights, and losing control.

I found lucid dreaming while trying to cure insomnia. I've only had it happen a few times but it was an amazing experience. A friend suggested listening to sleep hypnosis YouTube videos. My favorite is Michael Sealy but it really depends on the person and you will have to find what and who works best for you. He has multiple different videos to help ease you into lucid dreaming. I linked his YouTube page if you click on his name above and I will post one of his videos below.

So True. It takes me a lot of self control. I spent years doing the wrong thing.

i LOVE lucid dreaming for sure (if you cant already tell by my name
)

ill note a few things that i have deemed to be valid in my own experience

-manifesting whatever items i think about
-time travel to the past
-traveling to paralel universes
-visiting the same unknown places again and again while lucid
-watching myself in the dream from outside of my body
-dual perspective of my sleeping body in this life and my dream scenario
-360 degree vision
-traveling through vortexes and wormholes
-speaking to guides
-being in the "in between black" space
-falling into sleep (hearing all of the rushing vibrating noises, weightlessness, static) then arriving into a lucid space
-ringing in the ears
-not seeing figures but hearing telepathic communication from entities

thats all that comes to mind for me now but im sure there are others! good to see others into this amazing stuff as well!
