Post Lucid Dreaming

Share thoughts on lucid dreams and have you ever experienced one and if yes, what was it?

(I, myself don't remember ever having one, but then that doesn't prove much)

I remember this one jetsons I saw a long long time ago and they had this machine that would make you dream about whatever the knob was turned to. That would be cool. :p

Yes, I've occasionally had those. Most often when I dream nightmares I wake myself up by saying to myself (in the dream), wake up, it's just a dream. On other occasions I've been able to continue pleasant dreams if I for some reason woke up.

Usually it happens when I've been put in a perilous situation. So I don't really have time to make cool things happen. It's usually to keep myself "alive".

I'm the same as Lord Elden, I've often forced myself to wake up (Often by opening my eyes really wide (In the dream))

Interestingly, it only happens during nightmares, I've never had it occur during a good dream. I have however felt myself naturally waking up, and have sometimes tried desperately to stay asleep, but always to no avail.

I had one recently...I was sitting on the porch of me girlfriends house at night, and she was just kind of floating and very pale, and was staring at me, it didn't even look like she had a face. Then I went up to her and held her, and I woke up in the most relaxed and somewhat happy state...then I listened to "Blood of The Eyes" by Esoteric and I think I came a little bit.

Ahem...

The same for me. I've never tried though, I heard that there are techniques by which you can learn lucid dreaming.

I was quite amused to see this topic here, as I witnessed the same discussion on another board some weeks ago. :sarcasm:

Silverdrone: Well, Esoteric is truely hypnotic aural porn, I guess.

I had nearly 300 of them until now. They are in fact a little overrated... some sources claim you can do literally everything while it is actually really hard to gain that much control over your dream to really do what you want.

Good place to start would be www.ld4all.com.

I tried a couple of times before a few years ago to no avail.
Nearest thing i've had to lucid dreaming was a few months ago though, i was asleep (hah) and i had the strongest sensation that someone or something was jumping on my chest and i woke up to the sound of my own voice cursing and swearing loudly!Then i tried to get back to sleep, and although i was aware i was alseep at times, my mind (it seemed) wouldn't let me fall back asleep, it happened several times, and each time i managed to get to sleep i was aware i was asleep and some part of me kept waking myself up!
I hope that makes some kind of sense...like i said, not really lucid dreaming, but still i thought it was weird and rather annoying!

It happens sometimes when I have a power nap. Only lasts for a couple of seconds though.

I used to have loads of lucid dreams.
Then they started to get boring, and then I started to be dragged back into the world of true dreams.
The lucidity of my dreams would slip away and I'd find myself falling into an abyss of uncontrollableness.
Now I don't really think much about lucid dreams.

The main problem with lucid dreams is that you have to concentrate on staying asleep.

Yeah, because a dream only lasts like a few seconds.

I get them quite often. I usually can't function properly, like I can't walk or talk & stuff like that. The one I remember best is where I was in my parents house & each time I blinked I teleported into a different room. Eventually I ended up in a room where there was some sort of animal or monster trying to kill me. Whenever I teleported after that, the monster would be smashing down the door to get at me. I couldn't make myself wake up & when I eventually did I wasn't sure if I was actually awake.

I get lucid dreams occasionally and have throughtout my life so far. Indeed you can pretty easily find material on the net discussing techniques and exercises for inducing the state. I have never really felt the need to wilfully produce lucidity...it seems these techniques are a frequent topic in certain authors' chaos magic practice as a useful (for them) state of gnosis.

Well, at least I have found having lucid dreams to be a fascinating opportunity for studying the power of the unconscious mind in creating a virtual reality...or should I say a very complex and detailed surreality. Groovy...
