Lucid Dreaming (part 2)


Ok, so you want to know how to take control over your dreams? You may find many guides on the net about different methods but they didn't work for me. There are 2 simple ways from which you can have lucid dreams.
1)Sleep paralysys: Just lie flat on your back and DON'T MOVE! You may feel some itches but that's just your brain trying to check if you are asleep. After about 30 minutes you will start feeling strange and hopefully will be paralyzed.
2)Dream diary: This one worked for me. Notice how you can't remember most of your dreams. Well you can fix that. Get a notebook and put it near your bed. Every morning write everything you remember from your dreams. After a few days you will begin to notice that you can easely recall your dreams. Soon you will control them.

That is all.

  1. I had never heard of the paralysis method I may try that out, the dream diary one definitely seems to be a common method and I've been planning to try it out for myself. I have had successful experiences using melatonin, but its always nice to find ways around using pills.

  7. Dream diaries are a good idea. I have too many NSFW dreams, though. Writing them down would be a bad idea. ;)

  11. what i do is stay up really late, then set my alarm to wake me up early, and wander my house like a zombie for an hour or two, then return to bed.

  12. I have to say the paralysis method seems interesting but at the same time slightly scary. Not sure I'd want to paralyse my self, even for a short period of time.

  23. Sleep paralysis is not fun, I've experienced it before and it is scary as hell.

    I have experienced lucid dreams before but only for a few seconds because the moment I realize I'm dreaming, I wake up. :(

  29. Sleep Paralysis can be pretty intense, not to mention scary. Lucid dreaming, however, is the proverbial shit.

    My problem is that, the majority of the time, when I realize I am dreaming I wake up shortly there after. I've definitely had some strange dreams where all of a sudden I think "Wait, this is a dream..", and I begin to fly all around like superman. then I wake up thirty seconds later, depressed.

  30. I once read about a tibetan monk who every half an hour checked "if he was awake". He pinched his nose and tried to breathe through, he counted his fingers, he checked the time, and felt the ground or the walls around his for any unnatural things.

    And this guy was the master of dreams, I tell you. Doing these tests in real life made him do it in his dreams, and he entered lucidity every night.

  38. ive tried the sleep paralysis before, didnt work, but it also only works in the middle of the day as a nap, not at night when you are going to sleep.

    Will forsure try the dream diary thing :)

  39. I've always wanted to try lucid dreaming. I could never really get the hang of it. I even tried that thing where you set an alarm for yourself two hours early and then go back to sleep. I could never sit still in bed, those itches are annoying.

  40. I'm always trying for the sleep paralysis thing but it's rare. The only lucid dreams I've had weren't wake induced, just realizing mid-dream. Some day I'll be a guru hopefully.
