Lucid Dreaming (part 1)



Lucid dreaming is something I find very interesting. The thought of being able to be an omnipotent being - even in your own mind is magnificent.
About a year ago some guy posted on a forum about how he got into a bad car accident which left him with some kind of brain "problem". After the accident he was sleeping about 22-23 hours a day. He decided to make a thread in which people would ask him questions. In it he explained how his real world is the dreamworld since he spends much more time in it. After the accident he mastered lucid dreaming and it was very fun at first, he said something like: "It feels nice flying and making out with hot movie stars and all, but it gets boring after a while". Then he projected his real life into the dream - with all the relatives and personal stuff.
Interesting fella, the thread didn't last long because he went to sleep. Now, there is not much proof to comfirm this is real, but because of the way he describes it, it feels very plausible.

Next time I will teach you how to actually experience lucid dreaming.

  6. Always been interested in lucid dreaming. Although it seems unlikely that it's real. If you could control your dreams, would you ever stay awake?

  7. This can't be true, just sounds far to unbelievable. Then again I rarely remember any of my dreams, so what do I know.

  9. I really wish I could lucid dream all the time. I've had a bout five in my life, and two in the last year, but I'm always too tired to try or remember.

  10. I have enough problems with sleeping, let alone lucid dreaming, plus not all of us would like what we saw.

  12. I've lucid-dreamed before, and the thought of being omnipotent hadn't come to mind. I always just experience the dream as it is (usually a warped sense of reality), and act as I normally would in the situation. Its a life, within your life! haha!

  13. Yeah but when you realize that you are dreaming you become all powerfull. I managed to do that once but it only lasted a second after I started flying through the ceiling.

  15. I have tried lucid dreaming before but it never works out. In my dreams it is like I am part of a movie and there is a scrip. I can't do anything to change it. It is weird.

  17. Lucid dreaming is something I've always wanted to achieve but always had difficulty with. Perhaps my nerves are too on edge...

  18. I experienced lucid dreaming a couple of times, or what I think was lucid dreaming

  19. Have attempted lucid dreaming before, but my problem is that when I realize its a dream I don't take advantage of it. "Oh guess I'm dreaming, guess ill just continue riding my bike.

  20. My lucid dreams, the few that I've had, seem to be pretty minor as in I don't become some all powerful being. They also don't appear to last long. Another interesting subject is astral projection. Loosely tied with lucid dreaming, really makes you think to the next level.

  22. I have been trying to do this forever. Never ahd any luck with it.

  23. Lucid dreaming is such an interesting subject!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow. I want to try that just once. I kind of already know how to suppress something and trick myself into believing it was a dream.

  25. I hadn't read this part of your lucid dreaming posts but it's very interesting. i think that if someone ever reached the level that he did it really would defeat the purpose as much as it would if you had the same capabilities in real life, once you have everything what more is there?

  26. I also have similar interests in lucid dreaming. Interesting stuff.
