Hi, This is my first thread, First off let me explain how my first lucid dream occured. It was the summer between 7th and 8th grade, it was two weeks before 8th grade was to start. The last few precious days of summer were left as it was almost time to begin a new school year in 8th grade. As i went to bed that night i dreamt i was at school, midway thru the dream i realized, WAIT, school wont start for two more weeks! This is a dream! The dream was short, but i understood from that point on that i could realize i was dreaming in a dream.

After that it was only here and there that i would occasionally realize, for one reason or another, that i was dreaming. After i realized i was dreaming i could fly, move objects and do things as i never could before. Like i said this lucid dreaming was spuratic upto now (im 26 years old).

I read a thread not too long ago that offered ways to improve lucid dreams and help them to occur more often. He stated you have to look for tells that you are dreaming, maybe a pink elephant, you cant feel pain ect....Well the second night after reading that thread i had a dream, i was in a house, talking to my brother, something didnt seem right, the house wasnt right, i then asked my brother, can you feel pain? He gave a wierd look and replied yeah, of course and gave me a strange look. Then suddenly i had a pair of pliers in my hand, I took them and pinched a finger in them, NO PAIN, Then i put my finger in my mouth and bit myself, NO PAIN, I was lucid dreaming! I realized that Nothing was right, the house wasnt right, my brother wasnt right, the time wasnt right, THIS WAS A DREAM! As he stated you can get too excited and knock yourself out of a dream)., i remembered this and tried to stay calm, even as excited as i was. First thing i wanted to do was fly. As i thought this i rose to the ceiling, But it seemed as though i stayed in place and my surroundings dropped at an instant and there i was, floating in the air. I didnt have to go anywhere, everything came to me!

That was the end of my dream. I realized 1) You have to take everything in steps. Realize Nothing is right, this has to be a dream. 2) Confirm that its a dream, No pain, Pink elephant. This isnt real, this is a dream. 3) attempt something impossible; flying, making objects appear, doing what ever you want. 4) take it one step at a time, if you get too excited, i tend to be knocked out of the dream. 5) Take it one step at a time, if you can fly in the house, next time try and fly outside, then all the way up in the sky, then fly anywhere you want to. One step at a time.

Good luck everyone!!! Let me know if any of this was of any help. After my last dream i felt very spiritual, like i was completly disconnected from my body. Almost as if i understood life after death, This is what prompted me to sign up to ATS and create this thread. I want others to share the same thing.

I'm not sure this is the right thread . . . but yeah, realizing a dream is actually a dream is wicked. Lucid dreaming, you call it?
I can't remember the last time I had a nightmare, but I do remember that when stuff got too scary, I simply remembered to wake myself up.

But really, perhaps I lucid dream 10 times a night, but just don't wake myself up to remember it? That'd be bad. I think my conscious and my subconcious (or whatever which one produces dreams) don't talk very well, so I'm usually not going to remember to realize that a golden unicorn means I'm in a dream. I reckon it's purely chance if you realize.

I rarely have a problem realizing I'm in a dream. In fact, I usually do. Most of my dreams are lucid, and I often "redo" a dream multiple times in the same time to fix a problem in the dream. Unfortunately, I rarely remember my dreams, which drives me nuts because lucid dreaming can be a really useful tool. I've also had at least one out-of-body experience (OBE). It's quite different from lucid dreaming in that you CAN feel and taste and smell. Unfortunately I never got very far and I haven't been able to re-induce the state since the last (and possibly first) one a couple months ago. Does anyone have any tricks to help remember your dreams? I think if I started using those tricks on my dreams, I could also start applying them to help me remember OBEs if, in fact, I am having OBEs without knowing it.
