Default Lucid Dreaming

Lucid dreaming is "dreaming while being conscious of being in a dream." When being in a "lucid dream" u can (with practice) control your surroundings and people in your dreams. I find it takes my mind off many things when going to sleep and its relaxing. It can help people with chronic nightmares and gives me something to work on in private when I feel like being alone.

here is a site that explains the basics and can help you get started: http://dreamviews.com/

Please share your thoughts opinions on the subject :mrgreen:
(would this be in the right forum section?)

hi qwerty & welcome!
we have a dream section, but i think it's fine here, too, as the dream section is usually members describing dreams. ..
i used to be able to make myself dream about certain people sometimes, but not actually control what went on. it was very pleasant, even at that limited level.. . must be nice to control your dreams sometimes, but i do have a question. do you wake up tired because you are actually aware? i would think you don't get as deep a sleep that way? just curious, sometimes i just don't want to think at all, LOL

A lucid dream is no less refreshing than a normal non-lucid dream but I usually try to LD on weekends because some techniques require you to wake up in the middle of the night. And it's the nights you're so tired you don't want to think of anything that are good for lucid dreaming (for me anyways).

I actually do this a lot. A lot with meditation. This might just be occult superstition on my part, but if we could learn how to manipulate our sub consciouss we can become much healthier people ourselves.

hey, qwertybob, (love that name, by the way! :lol: ) don't know if you're still around, but i have a question. . .
i've noticed that my dreams occur right before i wake up, is there any way to push oneself back to sleep instead of waking up? i wake up before i've had enough sleep & it takes forever to fall back asleep. . .

I read thru this link some and blue girl, apprently it's good for you to wake up right after dreams and to record them if your going to learn to control your dreams in lucidity. Your minds most active time during sleep is the REM Period. REM is the last part of your sleep cycle. If i recall correctly this cycle spins all night long, but always ending with the REM ( the time when your most likely to dream). You actually may have multiple dreams a night.

But like I said, with the REM being at the end of the ending of your sleeping cycles I doubt it. This is really interesting stuff.

I actually did not know that EVERYONE dreamed every night. So when I got into this I was very excited to learn that I dreaming every night wasn't abnormal. Infact, I just have excelent Dream Re-call. And In fact I have HAD Lucid dreams. This is very fascinating. The concept of Lucid dreaming is not a new one to me, how ever I never considered getting into it myself.

Lucid dreaming and controlling dreams are not exactly the same though = \

And apparently there are many opinions based around it as escapism.
