I'm glad you posted because I have an update and it looked like this thread had been forgotten.

Okay, it's nothing major, but I've dreamt every single night since the lucid dream I described in the OP however these haven't been lucid dreams and as such I've had no control in them


What strikes me as interesting though is that usually I'll recall maybe one or two (max) dreams a week, I don't think I've ever dreamt every night and been able to remember it in the morning. Note: I do know that everyone does dream every night apparently, it's just that we are not always able to recall what we dreamt.

The dreams I have been experiencing have been extremely strange, again I've been dreaming about people from my past and other strange situations.

The thing is, after posting this thread and listening to the advice people have given about astral projection, I feel like I'm actually living these dreams out in real life, as if they are actually happening.

I'm enjoying the whole experience though.

Another weird thing is that I'm not actively trying to Astral Project or anything like that, I haven't even managed to get around to doing the research I intended on doing, it's like the process is happening automatically.

I'm not saying that I know for definite that my spirit is travelling to different dimensions in my sleep but I do know the dreams I have been having have felt very real.

Sounds like you are realizing yourself in the dreams, but they are not where and how you would like them. Crazy dreams are no fun and when a pack of gorillas chase you through a jungle, it's frightening.

I suggest zero meditation and if you drink before bed, drink lightly.
Set a destination just after lights out. Just like booking an airline flight to Hawaii. Will yourself to the setting as you fall asleep.

I suggest that the first thing you do, is ask someone in your dream if they know it's a dream.
I takes guts and will power to ask, because in your mind you might or might not be dreaming.
If you get an answer you have taken control of the dream.

Every time you dream, ask that same question.

Wow, it's strange enough having a lucid dream and being able to control what I do but asking someone in my dream whether they realise it's a dream or not would be pretty mind bending, to have someone in my dream tell me they knew it was a dream would be madness!

I'll try it though, cheers for the info.

None of the dreams I've had have been scary as of yet, they have all been enjoyable in their strange little ways. The dream I had last night at one point involved me being in some sort of underground cavern (probably because I watched the chilean miners rescue on the news) and then escorting a female clone to a specific room where I had to tell her she was actually a clone not the original human being she thought she was, strange!

Hi Guys,

I had a really, really strange lucid dream in the early hours of this morning and thought I'd share it here, for any of those who haven't heard of this topic:


A lucid dream, in simplest terms, is a dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. The term was coined by the Dutch psychiatrist and writer Frederik van Eeden (1860–1932).[1] Lucid dreaming has been researched scientifically, and its existence is well established.[2][3]

Okay lets get started, I've known for a while now that I've experienced Lucid dreams before; I remember one in particular where I suddenly became aware I was dreaming and actually had some control of what I did in the dream, in this instance I "woke up" in the dream and decided I wanted to fly.

In my previous Lucid dreams I've had some degree of control but it's always been limited, for example I may be able to perform a particular movement or action but after that I lose the control and the dream goes into a regular dream.

Early this morning I woke up at approx 4:15AM and decided to go for a cigarette before going back to bed, I lay there tossing and turning for about an hour and couldn't get back to sleep so I went for another cigarette in my living room.

It was quite peaceful sitting there looking out of the window into the darkness and listening to the sound of the wind and after I finished my cig I felt that I'd be able to go back to sleep so I, once again, went back to bed.

After more tossing and turning and generally feeling uncomfortable I finally felt like I was nodding off, I could see weird shapes and colours with my eyes closed (completely normal) and started to relax.

Now this is where I'm unsure, I drifted off into a dream but at the same time I still felt like I was awake, it was a pretty strange feeling because common sense states that you cannot be awake and asleep at the same time.

I'm not going to go into all the details of the dream (some parts are private
) but I will list the parts that I think are relevant here on ATS.

By the way, at this point I'd just like to remind you that for the first time ever I had complete control of everything I was doing in the dream, it really was like the dream was actually happening in real life. It sort of felt like when you've had a bit too much to drink and you know your still in reality so to speak, but everythings a little hazy.

I will also add that I had consumed a fair bit of alcohol last night after a stressful week so I'm not sure if that contributed to the experience.

Anyways, I dreamt of some mundane things such as walking around my flat, speaking to my neighbors and some other more unusual things such as meeting people that I've not spoken to in a long, long time.

Most dreams don't usually make much sense as it's said that a dream is a combination of the thoughts/experiences/emotions felt by an individual during the day and they become interwined in the mind.

The parts that I thought were interesting were at one point I dreamt of being on top of some sort of futuristic floating platform in the sky, it reminded like of something you would see on Minority Report, it was surrounded by some sort of force field I presume and I was manning a strange looking weapon station which in the dream I knew was some sort of laser cannon.

I'd embed a picture but after having a look on Google I can't find anything remotely similiar to what I dreamt and unfortunately my graphics skills are non-existant.

The second thing that was pretty interesting was I dreamt I was in a flat, not my flat however, and as I'm sitting there looking through the window some sort of alien crafts passes by at extremely short range, so short in fact that I'm able to see each and every individual window, it sort of looked like a the front of a skyscraper but in a triangle shape and obviously much smaller.

Throughtout the whole experience I still felt awake and at one point I decided to wake up, however when I closed my eyes I went straight back into the dream, after speaking to my girlfriend she suggested maybe I was in a very light sleep however I haven't mentioned the lucid part to her.

That's it guys, let me point out that I'm not stating that I had a paranormal experience or that I was abducted by aliens etc I'm absolutely certain what experienced was a lucid dream, just thought I'd share the experience on here with you guys.

It was actually a fantastic experience and I fully enjoyed it, at one point I felt like I had my own matrix type world where I could create whatever scenario I wanted!

I'm a little disappointed though because I doubt I'll get to experience that type of dream again any time soon but I'm definitely going to research Lucid dreaming techniques, I want to do that again!


Feel free to add your thoughts/opinions/questions....




I always can continue where my dream left off if I wake up...I usually go back a few mins before where I woke up... oddly I can continue the same dream night after night if I want to.... and I find if very difficult to wake up during good lucid dreams as if it is better than reality (I don't like that) I have been known to sleep 14 hours straight during dreams!

To the OP

Welcome to the lucid dreaming club!

This is the beggining of a journey for you, I myself fully embarked on this journey about 2 years ago. You will find that you will have more and more lucid dreams and you will start to have more "psychic" and "paranormal" experiences occur in your life.

I see this as a perfectly natural journey to be on and you should feel priviledged that you are able to progress in this way. IMO this is like a "sign-post" or a "land-mark", that is being given to you, your spirit and soul are growing and you are gaining a new spiritual insight.

I think (as a few have already stated) that when you go to sleep and "dream" your spirit is infact leaving your body and going to other planes/dimensions of existance, I think the term the "astral" plane gets over used a bit, I have only ever travelled there knowingly once, I had the sensation of rubber being pulled over my skin and going through an "onion-skin" layer as it were, then I can only describe a euphoria and visual feast that I can liken to something (it'd be a breach of the T&C) which produces similar effects. What happened there was that my brain created a natural and huge '___' surge.

I am a regular lucid dreamer, aswell as being clair-audient and clair-sentient, I will lucid dream nightly. I see the lucid dreams as an opportunity to gain a valuable insight into your own subconscious psyche, you can learn a lot about yourself and in turn change some of the negative things about yourself, you are able to grow more and more spiritually and will have an awareness that you hadn't had before. There are two types of lucid dream that I have now, the first is where I am given a lesson and I have to figure out the "moral" of the story, the second is where I travel to other planes of existance and meet with many different people, some human and some not, I do not have fear in my lucid dreams as one of my early lessons was to let go of fear, as fear will manifest.

I have complete control during my lucid dreams, it will take time for you to build up a "reportoire" of skills that you can use in your lucid dreams, this for me includes flying (at 1st you can only fly slow and fairly low), pausing, rewinding and fast forwarding time in the lucid dreams, teleporting from one location to another, turning myself invisible, being able to pass through solif objects (this is the easiest IMO), creating energy/psi pulses, changing content in my lucid dreams... for example if there is a car and it's not a very nice one I can change that into a nice one, lol... I can also start the cars by just thinking about it.

One thing I would like to add is, treat the "characters" in your lucid dreams with respect and dignity, because they may be "characters" that are aspects of your subconsciouss... in which case you are only harming yourself and repressing aspects of your subconsciouss which want to manifest, or in other cases they are ACTUAL entities on other planes/dimensions of existance and to show them a lack of curtiousy, respect etc will in effect demote you to the lower planes of existance, lower your spirits vibration and then you will find yourself in the lowest of realms where the inhabbitants won't show you any respect or dignity and in many cases delight in torturing you.

I hope all of this helps.


A fellow Lucid Dreamer.
