Hi everyone I have a question for some of you, are any of you lucid dreamers? In some ways with people who practice peaceful things like yoga etc. I could be expecting a few yes's, I've been a lucid dreamer for months, so how many of you are? Now though it's quite late in England so I'll be on tomorrow to reply

I've been reading about it and trying.. I've been applying what I've learned. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I've been dreaming about this Temple being an actual place and it's been very odd.. lol

Nick, to Lucid Dream means that you are aware that you are dreaming and are able to interact with and sometimes even able to control the dream. I've just started learning how to do this. No results yet but my body and mind are currently still resetting themselves (getting myself out of some bad habits) so i'm just going to have to be patient.
At first, I thought I was going crazy...but then the gummy bears and unicorn told me I was just fine.

Yep, raises hand. I wish I had more control, but most of the time its just knowing I'm in the dream and enjoying living in such a different life. Some mornings it feels like I've been awake three or four days whilst asleep!!

I guess the first step is being able to remember your dreams. The next step might be remembering when you come in and out of a dream state throughout the night. I think the most amount of dreams I've remembered fully, upon awakening is 4 separate dream cycles - but that's only happened half a dozen times, usually a normal nights dreaming will see me remembering 2->3 cycles worth... unless any of the dreams is particularly strong then for me it can override memory of the others before it sometimes. the downside of having more involvement in dreams is that not all dreams are good dreams, and sometimes a dream can have the same emotions as real life but in unreal circumstances... but overall I think its worth it. My favorite thing is hovering and flying like in that Second Life game.

I have the ability, but I only do so occassionally. Your brain knows what it needs to deal with, I feel that messing with it too often can hinder it's natural processes. But that is my own opinion.

Lucid Dreaming on a regular basis usually requires strict discipline, as well as a rigorous self analysis employing waking and dream journals. I have found John Magnus's "Astral Projection & the nature of reality" to be one of the best books on the subject.

I have lucid dreams for several years now. I don't know where this ability comes from, I've never learned it, studied it nor can I control when I have such dreams. But they are very cool.

Mostly this dream appear in the morning if I'm not in deep sleep or during a nap (what just happened :) ). Often I wake up because I have no idea how to continue the dream. After waking up I can't remember much of the dream, only the end of it.

nice to see this ability among us, to those people who struggle to remember their dreams at all it is due to two main reasons
1. Not enough REM (Rapid eye movement) sleep, this is the stage of sleep you have dreams, these occur in 1 hour intervals, as the night progresses the dream time extends, by 8 hours of sleep your last dream should be about 45 mins
If you are getting less then 8 hours of sleep, you will most likely not remember dreams due to the short times
2. Your dreams aren't vivid enough, so your brain doesn't bother to remember them
A way to get through this is to wake up during a dream

Also, and this is quite important to lucid dreaming, do keep dream journals, as Zenchi has said above, if you can remember dreams, read through your last dream so your mind will think "carry on from last time" in a way
Another important thing for lucid dreaming is testing if you are dreaming, just don't do something a bit overkill, like punching a wall, just something small, like pinching yourself, I've wasted a lot of lucid dreams chance because I thought I was awake
Hope this helps any of you guys :D

    • What are your opinions about euthanasia? (Last post by Streen)
    • I used to have a very specific belief on this, that euthanasia is completely ethical. While I think a person ending their life to be rid of the physical pain is okay, we're treading on the land of suicide. I have personal experience in this. I tried committing suicide twice in my life. And I am SO glad I survived. Yes, I've suffered a great deal of physical and emotion pain in the past decade, but all of that has made me stronger. In other words, there was a time that I didn't think I would have any relief, and then my "destiny" changed. You have to ask yourself though, why do we experience pain? There has to be a reason, right? Everything happens for a reason, after all. Nothing is a mistake or coincidence. What I'm getting at is that, depending on your beliefs, suicide/euthanasia is not an escape. You might be reincarnated to experience that pain again, so that you learn from it, as you were destined to do. Or in your despair and death, you end up continuing the experience in the afterlife. The thing is no one knows what lies "on the other side". Tread carefully.

    • Quote: In type, you should strive to be more clear, if anything, as there is not context of voice inflection, body language, etc. In type, it much more easy to misunderstand something, hence, to be as clear as possible and non subjective with your words will open more doors then close them. Of course... But if I think I'm clear, and as clear as I can be, and still not getting through, it can't be helped... And, an individual should realize that not everyone is going to understand what someone else is saying so further questioning should be done...:) Quote: It goes against the argument of subjectivity really. Such as this... Would you explain? This is just another point where people get separated... The "prickly" people, and the "goo" people.... :lol:....
    • Cognitive Dissonance - Your Thoughts (Last post by SeventhSL)
    • Thanks for the input guys. Thought that fox had those grapes with the stone idea. So so close. :) Ok so a little more information. I first stumbled over my own cognitive dissonance when my partner pointed out what a bad memory I had. Of course I didn't believe a word at the time but a week later I found myself to be in complete agreement and somewhat staggered at how I hadn't noticed this before. When I retraced how I'd come to this place it turns out I'd been pretty active with self justification and ignoring conflicting information. Though the passage of time I found that my capacity for self deceit (didn't have the term cognitive dissonance at that stage) went from mildly amusing to somewhat terrifying. When I started to see this in others it just became very sad. After all like Senan says it is responsible for starting wars. So fast forward to today and I have developed a couple of personal strategies to help at least limit it. I'm not pretending these are anywhere near 100% effective but they have certainly lead to some amazing results. My most recent success was helping to bring some peace to the lives of a couple of children going through a really messy divorce. To cut a long story short it helped clear my own emotion, understand both parties and in this case turn one parties strong cognitive dissonance against them. Two years of court rooms turned into an out of court settlement but most importantly two much happier and stable children now they had parents with a working relationship as far as sharing custody was concerned. Please don't miss understand me. I have no desire to tinker with other people's lives especially given I have enough trouble controlling my own. Sadly at this junction my motives are very self centred. I'm more than willing to share my strategies if people are interested but I'm really hoping to hear other people stories and experience so that I can learn from them.

    • Rape Culture (Last post by Zanthan Storm)
    • There are so many ways to reply to this. Often times... rape culture is restricted. Studies are altered to serve one group or another... This stuff really.. comes down to ... BE A DECENT HUMAN BEING. Women don't force stuff on men (sexual or otherwise) Men don't force stuff on women (sexual or otherwise) BE respectful No means no. People who have been raped... That sucks. I see it on a weekly basis... They need help and protection. People who'cry wolf' they are doing as much harm, because then those who it actually happens to... well their voice is lessened. People who do this.. should be charged with false claims and it should be a high punishment. As to who or why... To be honest... I don't care outside of that they get caught. Again, studies to prove anything here. However, it should be treated as any crime. Innocent til proven guilty and the person to claims rape should be safe. Simple. No political aims... nothing else. This culture... should not exist. Period.
