Yeah, you can, but I prefer not to when I actually have lucid dreams. The only real reasons I'm interested in lucid dreams are the ability to set up a dream scenario and the ability to experience things you can't in reality.

And I have experienced the terror of looking in a dream mirror firsthand. It doesn't happen to me in every dream I look at a mirror in, but it has happened to me before, and I've had a nagging fear of mirrors ever since

Default Re: Lucid Dreaming

So, was taking a gander around the site today, found these handy hints for lucid dreamers:

Achieving a Lucid Dream

1. Persistence. Everybody can LD, however, it takes some people a lot of time to master. There's been people that have had to try for years to get a LD.

2. Potassium and endorphins help. Eating high-potassium foods like bananas or comfort food like ice cream before bed can help with LDs.

3. Wake Back To Bed is the most effective method when combined with MILDs or WILDs.

4. Common reality checks include digital clocks, attempting to pierce one's hand with one's finger, levitating objects using psychic powers, and looking at the sky.

5. Chaining- the practice of having an LD and then waking oneself up and going immediately into another LD. Helps to make LDs easier to achieve.

Inside a Lucid Dream

1. The Spin Trick- If a lucid dream seems to be "unstable", rapidly spinning and visualizing yourself inside the dream helps most people stabilize their LDs.

2. The Lucid Pill- When you enter a lucid dream, pull a bottle of pills out of your pocket. Imagine that taking the pill will increase your lucidity and then take it. It very frequently works to great effect, and helps some people achieve absolute lucidity, or "hyperrealism", or an extreme hightening of all senses beyond what is normal. Shouting "Lucidity x1000!" also works for some people.

3. The Door Trick- Approach a door. Envision what you want to be beyond that door. Enter the door. You should be there.

4. The Mirror Trick- For some people, walking through a mirror results in entering a new, oftentimes brilliantly unusual alternate reality.

5. Odd Things- Your body is very good at envisioning feats and conditions normally unable to be experienced based simply on its visual memory. Flying, shapeshifting, and even death are examples. Flying is described as a weightless feel, occasionally being lifted by air, shapeshifting actually does (and I'm speaking from firsthand experience) feel like being in a different body, and death is generally described as a cold feeling accompanied by a darkening of vision. One person claims to have forced himself to stay in a dream after death and claims to have found himself suddenly falling towards an infinite blue barrier, which he perceived to be a manifestation of the afterlife.

So I failed again. My mind too easily wanders when I'm trying to focus, and I start thinking about other things. I need to be more patient and focus more.

RE: dream logic. The mind is normally very good at predicting what will happen. However, in a dream, the mind will substitute the first thing it can think of, and will also do it's best to ignore the fact that this isn't how the world works, IIRC.

hm... I love how my dreams have been nearly going my way lately (almost doing something that you really want to do, but then being distracted by other dream aspects) its really unfair.

Default Re: Lucid Dreaming

sorry for the double post, but how exactly do you MILD? how do you train your subconsious to wake itself in a dream? you didn't put a specific enough description for it

edit: looked on the website. and I found your description of WILD to be slightly off. if all I have to do is recognize the hypnagogic state, then it should be easy for me.

also: I am extremely excited now. I will tell about my experience tomorrow.

edit: well, I wasn't able to do it. But whenever I catch myself in that hypnagogic state, I can attempt to try it.

Default Re: Lucid Dreaming

So. Had Moontrousers over last night and we stayed up til 1:30 in the morn playing Diablo II. Problem is, we had 4 cans of pop, and were both too jittery to get WILD to work. MILD didn't work either, and I got abrubtly awoken by my dad so I can't recall my dream either.

I did have kind of a strange experience involving WILD, though. My body kept feeling fuzzy and then not fuzzy, and my vision somehow seemed to keep getting closer and further, even though my eyes were closed.

And a lot of the stuff in the first post is a bit inaccurate. I wrote it as a lucidity n00b at 12:30 in the morning. Although putting yourself in sleep paralysis is the easiest way to go consciously into a hypnogogic state. And MILD involves convincing your body to become awake when asleep. The one I used when I tried MILD is "When I open my eyes, I will be dreaming and will do a reality check."

Finally, Moontrousers found a video that supposedly uses subliminal messaging to get a subliminal message telling your mind to "wake up" during dreams. However, I will not link to it, as it involves lots of flashing lights and could give some people epileptic seizures.

I got information from a site (I forget which now, it was a very long time ago) that During WILD you might experience "Old Witch Syndrome" where you feel like there is somebody watching you at the end of your bed and you cannot move. I have attempted WILD, but never succeeded. Same with lucid dreaming, and I think it's because I have very realistic dreams.

The only sucessful attempt (or the nearest to one), was a low-level lucid dream using WBTB. I tried WILD, but it seems that the counting method doesn't work for me.

This is pretty much why WILD doesn't work for me. I count to around 700, and I start to lose focus.

I've managed to get total numbness from WILD, but then something jerks me back to conciousness. It's really irritating.

However, I do know it takes some people years to get a hold of lucid dreaming, so I'm willing to try for years to get it.

I successfully became lucid last night... I think it was mostly wake back to bed induced because my dog kept barking rather loudly for no particular reason. Even though i did have success there were multiple periods of lucidity that I entered due to the fact that my dog kept waking me up. I became lucid about 5 times last night (the last one lasted until i was woken up by my mom) Anyway the estimated 5 times I was lucid i was just exploring vast universes that I created and flying around, talking to people and studying the creatures that inhabited the worlds.
