This is where the dreamer is aware that he/she is actually dreaming.
When lucid the dreamer can take control and manipulate the dream, it comes natural to some, with others it may take some practice.
Tbh I've never heard of this one. Maybe its another name for the methods used to help increase clarity?
Is the action of leaving your body and projecting your mind onto the astral plane. It is a type of Out of body experience.
Out Of Body Experience
Where you leave your body during a dream and can see your own body. Astral projection is type of OBE
Is where you can view an unseen object/person using your mind. I think lol
Lol im not sure if thats all correct, please correct me if i wrong
"Is because I'm SO afraid of sleep paralysis and apperently sleep paralysis is needed to have
a lucid dream."
Don't be afraid of sp.
Sleep paralysis is needed for any dream not just lucids. Its natural while sleeping, you go into it every time you sleep.
Nothing can hurt you, its all in the mind my friend
I've personally just got back into lucid dreaming, ive had 4 in total.
Normally i like to fly, its really fun, but sometimes you get too excited and wake up
Also one time i did some free running/parkour that was awesome.
I also was fighting off a lion with magic, no joke lol
Anyway i personally think its worth it, its great just to explore your own little world where you can do anything you want.
I would suggest maybe trying to learn how to do DILD's (Dream Induced Lucid Dream)
Probably the easiest to begin with, there are quite a few methods.
Theres also a forum on that site, where you can see peoples lucid experiences and theres tutorials and stuff too.
