Lucid dreaming is when you are dreaming and you know that you are dreaming. When you are lucid dreaming, you can do anything you want, even fly and stuff.

I would like to mention that flying is able to do because there are no laws of phisycs so you can also go trought walls and so.

Ooh, I think I have been there, sometimes when I am asleep, I am aware that myself is sleeping.
But I never do stuff like that.

This is because your mind becomes so excited about the thought of lucid dreaming that you wake yourself up from the rush, the trick is to remain relaxed and "ease" into the lucidity, when you become adapt at achieving a lucid dream state, you can train your mind to make the dreams more clear and vivid and thus, more memorable when you wake up. You got as far as being able to lucid dream, if you can just calm your mind after that initial realization that you're dreaming (what I refer to as the "OMG" stage) then you're pretty much set.

>muh sleep paralysis nightmares of doom

This usually only happens if you're trying to to the WILD technique or even trying to Astral Project (for mundanes, that just means a VERY powerful lucid dream but it's so much more than that when you know what you're doing)...Even then it's very rare for you to experience it fully. Sleep paralysis happens more or less every night, it stops you rolling out of your bed and acting your dreams as you're sleeping, but if your mind is awake while your body goes to sleep (WILD technique), it is possible to achieve a rather scary phenomenon called sleep paralysis, your body literally falls asleep while your mind is awake, you can't move, if your mind is already in a state of dreaming you can even see hallucinations in extreme cases... I used to have night terrors and constant sleep paralysis, I know that it can be scary but the trick is to just relax and know that nothing can hurt you, it's all in your mind...

But don't let that stop you from attempting lucid dreaming, it only ever happens in extreme cases and causes no harm, with enough brute willpower you can shake yourself out of it, and it's very rare to occur anyway so don't let scaremongering stories about "evil frog beings from out of space touching you up as you're frozen in fear" stop you, that's not going to happen...


And as for very vivid nightmares, the one thing that will keep you from waking up in a cold sweat clutching your heart and checking that you're alive is the fact that none of it can harm you, no matter how vivid or realistic the nightmare seems... It's all in your head...

In my dreams I can feel everything, pain, fear, happiness, joy... It's one hell of an experience when I really get going, nightmares and negative dreams seldom happen because I have trained my mind so well, but these things can happen if you're new to it all, as always, keep a steady mind, a flighty heart will not serve you well when lucid dreaming, just keep calm and know it's only a dream.

Mm no not really. I'm aware that this can happen but I wasn't excited at all. In my dream, I realized this is so bizarre and that it must be a dream so I wanted to wake up and shaked and pinched myself (in my dream) and woke up. Right after waking up I realized, "oh wait.. That's exactly what lucid dreaming is...." and then the facepalm hit.

(Idk If this means anything, but maybe Mr dream interpreter knows anything about this; as I said I made myself wake up from the original dream, and then I saw myself wake up in a SECOND dream whigh felt insanely real. I'll describe it a little because it was really weird and I remember it very clearly: like I said, I saw myself wake up in the second dream, in there I was paralysed, in a sitting position, I couldn't speak. One of my eyes was fine but the other was blurry and half closed. The room I was in was nothing like the room I sleep in; it was bright and yellowish. Also, there were small dogs everywhere on the floor.

Note that this "second dream" only lasted for literally 3-4 seconds. First a second of surprise and a "dafuk" reaction, then 2 seconds of fear and then I woke up for real.

Is that what sleep paralysis is? Or is my mind just doing weird dream-y stuff?)

Sounds like you are yet to have the awareness of the difference between reality and dreams...

Sounds weird, but your subconscious can easily mistake what's real from what's not, excessive exposure to games and TV is the main cause of this from what I've seen, but it could just be because your dreams aren't as fully fledged as they need to be to actually lucid dream properly...

When in a dream, try to notice if there's anything odd or out of place, looking in a mirror sees no reflection? Boom! Dreaming... You have more fingers than you should have? Boom! Dreaming and weird hands too :^)

Your mind won't process the tiniest of details perfectly correct so look out for odd things in your dream.

Lucid dreaming can be extended by looking down and spinning in a circle for a short amount of time. Also, try not to excessively blink in a lucid dream, which could cause you to wake up.

I would try to lucid dream, but I already have almost no dreams at all. I might remember one dream after waking up once every two months or something.

Atleast you were capable of doing it! Lucid dreaming is something that I have yet to achieve. TBH, it sounds too complicated.

a lucid "dream" is a universe were you are usually in complete control and you can do what ever you want with no consequences.

When i was a kid I used to always lucid dream

I must of been suicidal since every dream i always jumped of a cliff and felt a strange adrenalin rush and hit the floor still alive

then i woke up

Nothing from from then on I suppose

Except i did experience a very realistic nightmare… Not nice to think about it

EDIT: When I do think about it I do actually remember I commonly have lucid dreams… All based around war if i recall correctly

My mind is dodgy ;p

Sounds like you weren't 100% prepared for it, sometimes impulsively you try to wake up after achieving lucidity if it's not a very common thing.
And yeah, that's a /fp moment if there was one :^)
That doesn't really seem like true sleep paralysis to me, but the second dream sounds about right to me... The first dream was still fresh in your memory and it's true that if you wake up in the middle of the night and go back to sleep, your second dream could be much more stronger.
The "dogs on the floor" thing seems like you were still dreaming but your mind was waking up, a rather strange occurrence but it can happen.

I think you're pretty solid when it comes to lucidity, but this one situation was just a /fp moment tbh.. :^)



Lucid dreaming can be extended by looking down and spinning in a circle for a short amount of time. Also, try not to excessively blink in a lucid dream, which could cause you to wake up.
This is a common way to keep the clarity of lucid dreaming high, however it may "teleport" you to another place altogether, once you become adapt at lucidity, you can find other ways to intensify it and control it, for example, if I feel that it's fading I can simply think of how the dream was good and I want to stay in the dream for a bit longer and it will be so, that said... I have had years of training my body and mind to achieve intense lucidity and meditation, it's easier said than done.

But ANYONE can learn to lucid dream, and it's a very fun and interesting experience. I wouldn't warn anyone away from it whatsoever.


i have those dreams so much. there supper fun. I'm a crazy over lord of the world with the powers of the sage of six paths.

I don't even need to make vague references to justify it, I have mastered my dreams anyway :^)

It has been known to be able to see certain entities when in sleep paralysis, but don't get super scared, it is common for it to just be in your mind, though there is a huge difference between meeting an entity and experiencing a rather scary hallucination.
As for your friend, I gather that she doesn't know what she's talking about, people who are psychic don't flaunt that power around openly because people will think they're mad... But my personal belief is that "ghosts" are very much real and there is an energy that connects us from this world to the next, and to tap into that energy is what people could call "psychic".

Though your story interests me, I would like to hear more...

Now this is interesting.

Both of your replies are generally similar to what I would call a "troubled subconscious"
When I had bad depression a couple of years back, I would often have VERY vivid visions of jumping the bridge that is only a short walk away, the currents below would have easily dragged me under, but I often seen in the water to be some sort of vague image or picture, often it was fire or something uncontrollable, like the waves crashing against the shore, I had realized at this point that these thoughts are trying to tell me something... There were no cars on the bridge and an oppressive dark cloud loomed over the sky, it told me that I felt alone and the clouds signified darkness and depression, I consider myself VERY lucky I could read the signs and better myself, but in those experiences I also realized that when your subconscious is troubled and your inner self needs to tell you something, it will often be in a dream or an intense vision...


As for dreams of war... I used to get those a lot, I still get most dreams that are packed full of action, while I've learned to enjoy "rootin' tootin point and shootin' time", I also realize what it could mean, perhaps your mind is at war with itself, a clash of thought or opinion... I have been known to accurately read other peoples dreams and even get into their minds and find information that was previously untold to anyone... But the true answer would come from yourself, you must ask yourself why do these dreams occur on a regular basis? What is happening in your life that is troubling you or must change? Once you know the road ahead all you must do is to follow that road.
