While I've never (to the best of my knowledge) astral projected or lucid dreamed (yet!), it's been a very fascinating subject for me for far too long. Regrettably, my grasshopper mind keeps hopping all over the damned place so I haven't REALLY tried it just yet. I do know that Robert Monroe was a pioneer in lucid dreaming as well as astral projecting. He was a successful radio show producer and director way back in the 50's as well as being a music producer for films & TV. He eventually started doing research into human conciousness and was one of the first individuals to do active, hands-on research into what would be commonly known as out-of-body traveling. His establishment, the Robert Monroe Institute, Robert Monroe Institute continues with the research he was so enthusiastically involved with. If you google, you'll come across a LOT of links to this very interesting subject. I can hardly wait until I figure out how to do this myself! Ultimately, I guess it's up to each of us to determine how real this is and what it really means in the grand scheme of things.

Active lucid dreamer/astral projector here. In my case, I have three main types of dreams:
1. Regular, vivid dreams (sometimes I'm aware I'm dreaming, but cannot influence the environment).

2. Lucid dreams - I'm usually not able to hold onto the dreamstate for too long.

3. Some kind of category that I like to call "guided" dreams. These are dreams where I am fully aware I am dreaming, but I can only interact at certain "points". It can get interesting, because my perspective is that of a movie-watcher or that I am watching what goes on through the first-person perspective (think video games). Usually, these lead to interesting insights...to the point I only loosely consider them dreams.

As an example of the 3rd type - One that always stuck with me was that I was traveling with a caravan on some red desert-like area (single-file line of people with packs on their backs). We traveled to a cave (air was harder to breathe; I still had no control). We we were in the cave, I was greeted by someone: She asked me what it was like to be one of the last humans from Earth. At this point, I was "given permission" to take control only enough to answer the questions (they consisted of my name, what I remembered of Earth, like something a person born elsewhere would ask).

To add onto the above - I was given permission by this person to explore the area - I went to this sort of canvas enclosure that was similar to a daycare; there was a white line close to the edges of the canvas to prevent the kids from going too close, and the adults watching over them wouldn't let them go outside (As if to make them believe the outside was dangerous).

I see no harm with practicing at night; it doesn't seem to impact my daily energy levels, and by now I think I'd notice as I've been doing it for years.

Keep at it!

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 . straight for the nearest girl's locker room.


I was going to mention the aspect of not being rested. I was waiting until I was at a real keyboard to respond. I also understand about .ing immediately to the locker room. I have noticed, in the past few months, when I have gotten back into lucid dreaming that I seem to have not gotten any rest. What's strange about that is that allegedly we can have hours of dreams that occur in just a few seconds. Somehow lucid dreaming makes the conscious self aware of time and spoils the amount of rest.

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.


That is precisely the answer. Divesting yourself of fear. I was first only able to escape from the fear of sleep paralysis, through study, then eventually I was able to master it. I don't know how it happens for you, but for me there is a strange whooshing noise I sense, which is before the evil entity thing happens. I decided, rather than to fight it, I would drive myself into sleep and harness it. That was when things changed.

One thing I have tried and has never failed for me is to try to read something. Because of the way the brain works we are unable to maintain written words in a dream. A certain way to know you are dreaming is to pick up a book or letter then try to read it again. If the second reading becomes gibberish then you know you are dreaming. For some reason the dreaming mind is unable to decipher the meaning of words.

Please flag and star this topic OP if it is interesting or applies to you. I've been waiting many years to hear about others who have done this and especially those who experienced sleep paralysis and overcame it.

I keep on trying to push the limits when I am dreaming. About 3 months ago I thought it would be cool to look in a mirror while I was in a lucid dream. So when I became lucid I .ed straight for a mirror in my dream. It was so odd. My face kept morphing into different people. I had never done that before but I have to say it was definitely an experience. To any lucid dreamers. While lucid dreaming, look at yourself in the mirror.

Lucid dreaming is exciting its fun to be able to control yourself and do normally impossible things like fly... When you get a little better at it you will start manipulating your environment and others as well...
Then comes something truly amazing when you can effectively step out of your dream and even yourself into the waking world known as an out of body experience...
When you have progressed far enough with obe you may find the ability to vibrate your self into this state while awake through meditation...
It is here the magic really starts to take place...
Because you will have graduated to not a psychic but remote viewer or an experiencer if you will... Capable of traveling time from within your mind...
And you will be contacted by both governments and those from beyond...
This is something everyone can tap into but very few ever will atleast for the time being...
In the future devices worn on the .s of individuals will assist in the process...

The mirror thing definitely interests me, i once decided to see what would happen if i tried to pass/faze through a mirror(like a portal if you will) but got so overwhelmed i ended up waking myself up but it was amazing while it lasted, i couldn't tell you what prompted me to try this i may have read it somewhere.

What really sticks out as i passed through the mirror is i found i was zooming through space at an insane rate (speed of light maybe?) but woke before i got to a destination unfortunately, i think a major factor that could have caused me to wake though was just before i passed through the mirror my wife appeared and practically begged me not to do it so maybe i freaked out and that is why i woke up rather than the experience itself.

I am a lucid dreamer. Have been doing it ever since I can remember, but I cannot make it happen. It happens when it wants to.

I can manipulate my dreams most times when I realize that I'm dreaming and I want to change the outcome of how things are progressing. I work a lot in my sleep/dreams, trying to figure out answers to my problems at work or something, too. Sometimes, it's like I'm in a movie. I always dream in full color too. I also remember all of my dreams, even down to little details like which shirt someone was wearing.

Unfortunately, sometimes because my dreams are so real, I cannot quite be sure that it was a dream. For example, I was absolutely sure that my Sweetie told me that he had a sister and that she and her family haven't spoken with the rest of the family for years and that they are pretty much on their own. I asked recently about her and he looked at me like I had three .s... He doesn't have a sister. LOL!

Yup, I'm a weirdo... of the fun kind. :-)

I've had it happen twice in 65 years! I wish it would happen more. I've tried a lot of the methods to help induce them, but it never works. So I just hope it will happen again sometime.

The two times it happened I wasn't initially aware in my dream that I was "awake" in my dream, "awake" as in being aware I was in a dream state, but I knew it was a dream state and I just looked at the person sharing my dream and exclaimed.."Holy Sh*t this is a dream!" and then woke right up.
The other occurrence I was in my dream driving around trying to find a place I always "went to" in a recurring dream, but I was aware it was a dream and I was able to find the house and never had the recurring dream again.

My explainations suck, it's hard to describe, but the experience is nothing like a regular crazy mixed up dream. I would like to have more so I could do some exploring.

I too have memory problems regarding lucid dreams. Sometimes I have to really think hard if what I am remembering actually happened or if it was just a dream. I try to explain to people how its not really any different than in waking life. Full consciousness, full awareness, full control. A lot of times my memories seem to merge and then I have to step back and think for a second.

I have become really good at controlling my dreams when I'm lucid. I use to tell people what to do and they would do it. Now I just think it and they do it. I can call anyone into my dreams now. All I have to do is walk around, turn corners, go through doors while I am calling out their name and they eventually appear. I just recently started asking for my spirit guide instead of using my lucid dreams for sex or superpowers. I have done it 3 times now and each time has been very enlightening.

I am not a lucid dreamer and only get very low level psychic/psi information so I am not here to share my experience.

But I do want to add my view to this thread that what you are experiencing can be logically explained and quantified by a quantum physics view of reality that includes entanglement.

Psi/OOB/empath ability/energetic manipulation are all manifested with the help of entanglement where it is technically possible to connect any quanta of creation to another part of creation. With that connection you can transmit information from one place to another without going in a space in between.

Do not allow scientist who cannot handle entanglement to hold back your search for how it is manifested. Humanity have wasted decades on this blindness to not accept what experiments have already proved to be.

I am not a master of it, but I do know sometimes when I am dreaming. When I do this I walk up to any stranger and start making out with him, I have sex with any guy there is bc I know I will wake up soon. Its pretty hot. Ive never had a 3-way (probably bc I don't really want to)

Please know I am NOT like this in real life, just while lucid dreaming or whatever you want to call this that I do.

I know of quantum entanglement. I truly believe it explains a lot. What most people call coincidence - I know is just simply quantum entanglement,super position, synchronicity etc.... Whatever you want to call it, if you understand the science (which most people don't) it's not that hard to explain or take as truth.

I can lucid dream at will, however, I typically decide not to. I actually like my regular dreams better, they're vivd like my lucid dreams, but they flow like a movie. Lucid dreaming for me is like playing an open world video game with cheat codes and modifications to the games code its self. Most of my weirder dreams occur when I don't chose to control them, unfortunately this does put me at risk of having a nightmare(especially if I'm sick). Lucid dreaming gives me some type of weird sleep paralysis some times, It's kinda hard to explain but it's as if it prevents me from falling back to sleep, and if I do sleep I have to use my full body strength to move and wake my self up(I've fallen off my bed doing this a few times). I did, though have a couple of my weirdest dreams as lucid dreams, in one of them it felt like I had traveled to a Parallel universe. It was kinda weird because in the dream I looked different but I could tell it was me and I was talking with friends I had never seen before.

The last I read about the speed of dreams is that they apparently happen in real time, and are not compressed like in the movie Inception.

I'm a natural lucid dreamer but not a master. It seems to happen a couple of times a month, maybe more frequently when I was a child. Usually I wake up in a dream and just follow characters or explore where I am on my own. I've been considering taking it more seriously though, changing habits that are bad for dream recall/awareness. I recently asked my brother about lucid dreams and he said he's only had them twice in his whole life.

Also, I just read a reddit comment today about someone going to a dream moon of Jupiter to write in the sand to a friend and their friend found the same writing in their own lucid dream. That's very interesting to me.

Last night I had a 'lucid' dream. It didn't feel like a dream though and I couldn't wake up without being woken by someone outside the dream. I woke up in my bed and heard something flying outside my window trying to break in. I had a dream before it and it was like waking up from it, only I was woken up by the sound of something flying. I tried to get people to help me with it and I was in control of my body. The people were different people instead of people I know, and they looked terrifying. Sort of greenish skin and hair and they were just staring at me when I asked for help. I went down stairs and my family that I recognized ignored me to. They acted weird and one of them went through a drawer looking for a knife as soon as I told him. No one would speak to me no matter what. If anything just grumbling sounds. So at that point I decided I was dreaming and just stood there terrified. I couldn't wake my self up though! IT FELT REAL! I tried opening my eyes on my real body but it was pointless! Like trying to open my eyes when they were already open. Everyone just ignored me! Someone woke me up by calling me in 'real life' thank god! I was stuck there! I've had dreams like this before! I always have to get woken up! If anyone has any ideas what they could mean or what could cause it I would love to hear it. They're not a very pleasant experience and it may be something, some sort of entity trying to tell me something or just to torture me. I would like to know why if they are or if you have any ideas please let me know. Thank you and best wishes.

I tried to fly up one time. I got too scared. It was so black.



So you felt fearful of the dark? Might I ask, did you see any stars?

I have never experienced fear in LD, but I always have great power.
