    Hi,

    I did just read about this topic in another Forum and cuz i think its a sorta interesting topic i would like to know if there are ppl here that really try to do Lucid Dreaming ?

    I had those experience as well once or twice even thaught i did not really try, just happend to notice that i was dreaming while i was ...

    The thing behind Lucid Dreaming is that ppl try to know when they dream to control their dream !
    Its really cool thing if you can do as you like in your dream but i am not sure if its really possible to train for something like this.


    more infos : http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Lucid_Dreamin...tion_Techniques



    So what do you think about it and are there ppl here who are doing it or might try it now ?

    Lucid dreaming is kind of weird. I would try to think of something and it would turn out the opposite >_>

    What I usually do to control my dreams is shoot myself. Once I know I cannot die then I can control the dream, but only to a certain degree. To wake myself up I fly at extreme speeds or jump off a tall building.

    There were a few threads recently on the subject but OK

    Lucid dreaming as I understand it is the ability to control your dreams. I can pull it off but only in light sleep i.e. the last hour or two and most of the time it is a bit like breakout in that I only have some guidance rather than full control.

    Better than that though is incorporating the world around your into your dream, I crashed on the sofa when film four was showing a random black and white film about a scientist who discovered a youth potion (I am sure the name that film crew would kick me for not recalling the name of it as I am fairly sure it was popular). The speech got merged in and it was decidedly weird (and this is after a "lifetime" of sci-fi, fantasy and normal science afflicted dreams).

    Being able to control your dreams was called "imagination" back when I was a kid.
    Or, huff some ether and you'll think you're flying. There ya go, no need to check your clock every five minutes, or going to sleep with a full bladder (honestly, you want to realize how fucking stupid something is? Read the experts tell you how to achieve it, presto!)
