I am writing an informational research paper in the next month or so and I have decided to do it on lucid dreaming. I bet my instructor has never read anything about this before and I really think she will appreciate it (she a weirdo like me ;P).

I was hoping you guys could share some of the deeper aspects (like maybe some reality checks you use, or certain ways you control your dream) of lucid dreaming in this thread so I can really give the paper some UMPH! Maybe I can read about all this in a book but personal experiences from actual LDreamers will really spice it up.

Thanks to anyone that posts!

ya, check out the "advanced" section of this forum and you hear about things like:

in waking life rolling dice in a box and not looking at them, then in an obe or lucid dream look at the dice, remember the numbers then when you wake up look at the numbers and see if they are the same as your dream predicted...

rub your hands together in a dream to make it more realistic and stable,

touch objects to to above^ but also increase dream length

in a dream look at a mirror, and walk through it, who knows whats on the other side... anyway you are very fortunate, essay or not, you have come to a skill that few people know about. but it is a fabulos thing that we can all do, it really should make up a much larger part of this world and peoples lifestyles.

just learn as much as you can and start dreaming.. it starts of slow, a few weeks or a month befor your first lucid dream but then your skill increases exponentially, and finnaly you cna be able to controll your entire sleep length deepness breathing heartrate anything you want... and you sill be able to enter a fantastic world not bound by logic but giuded by whatever you want!

Well yep, for me personally I kind of went gung ho and changed a lot of aspects of how I slept and the structure of my room and actually have had 2 semi-lucid dreams in 2 weeks. Mainly because of this site. I really wouldn't mind, and hope this subject turns into a conversation because this stuff really interests me and any general information or techniques used by other people will help me with my paper, and just in general.

One thing is the dream journal I am having a hellava time recording accurately and hearing some peoples views on this would be awesome too.

Yep Pluisje I have been skimming through the science section too! Thanks for the link though. Smile

ok, well i know that lucidipedia likes to keep to itself, and so it should but for the sake of your research paper look at www.lucidology.com
it is a website that sells info, but 1/2 of the info is free, it has lotsa info on the chemistry of sleep and stuff...

ok so the dream journal: as soon as you wake up, you shouldnt be able to remember your dreams, you will think"i cant remember my dream" but that means that you did dream( if you didnt you would know that you didnt dream right awa) just lay in bed and focus on what you dreampt, it will come within a few minuts, peice by peice...

then befor you forget themm, go write them down as discriptavily as possible ( a picture is worth a thousand words)

Well it's not just general scientific information I am trying to gather, I have some books and stuff I'll use for that. I just want some PERSONAL feeling information from people willing to share. Some technique that someone modified for personal use, things like that.

No offense but that is a generic dream journal thing I have read in a few books/articles and maybe you have something special you do for yourself to help with your journal? I myself have been having trouble waking up and writing it down and in the morning I just can't remember although I know I dreamed because I have small bits that I can remember just not enough to piece together a dream. An example would be is there anyone that sets their alarm not only for WILDs but maybe also for their journal? I haven't found my niche yet and reading other peoples ideas on the subject really helps me construct how I follow through with things. Like Tim Posts videos, very informative and I am positive they are the reason I have made as much progress as I have.

I am not asking for people to submit massively long paragraphs (if you want to though, please do Razz), just little things they do to help them along their way with lucid dreaming and anything that goes with it.

Also talking/reading about how people do their stuff kind of helps me alleviate the pressure of my interest in lucid dreaming with people who actually care about it. Most people I know have no interest and don't really care about my interest in it either, lol.

Significance of dream journal:
It seems like its not worth writing your dreams down but the main problem with people who are not successful in getting an LD is this only.
I will tell you why its important to write your dreams down:
1.You will be able to recall about 3 dreams in great details.
2.Your normal dreams will become more vivid and clear.
3.You will be able to notice a pattern of dreams you are getting.
4.You will know your person dream signs.
5.You will enjoy your normal dreams too, hence increasing your motivation.

[My experience: When I first decided to write my dreams down I procrastinated in doing so because I thought that i will memorize them and will have no problem recalling them in the morning and write them but then I noticed that its not possible to remember the dreams in detail you we procrastinate.]
so
Tip 1:Don't procrastinate in writing your dreams down just when you wake up.
Tip 2:Your most vivid dreams are at 6 am ,so if possible set your alarm to wake you up at 6 am and then recall your dreams without moving a muscle because if you move a muscle , you will get distracted and forget your dreams.
Tip 3:Wait for atleast 15 min to racall your dreams because most of the time if are not able to recall a dream we get demotivated and sleep but I ask you to wait for about 15 min and I am sure you will recall them withing this time period.

Impotance of Reality checks:

This is the reality check which if you do atleast 8 times a day and make it a habit you will surely get a lucid dream.

1. Plan when you intend to test your state
Choose in advance certain occasions when you intend to remember to test your state.
For example, you might decide to ask, “Am I dreaming?” when you arrive home from
work, at the beginning of each conversation you have, every hour on the hour, and so
on. Choose a frequency of state testing that feels comfortable. Use imagery to help you
remember to ask the question. For instance, if you intend to ask it when you arrive at
home, see yourself opening the door and remembering your intention. Practice the
exercise a dozen times or more during the day at your selected times and also
whenever you find yourself in a situation which is in any way dreamlike, for example,
whenever something surprising or odd happens or you experience inappropriately
strong emotions or find your mind (and especially memory) strangely unresponsive.
2. Test your state
Ask yourself, “Am I dreaming or awake?” Look around you for any oddities or
inconsistencies that might indicate you are dreaming. Think back to the events of the
last several minutes. Do you have any trouble remembering what just happened? If
so, you may be dreaming. Read some text twice. Don’t conclude that you are awake
unless you have solid proof (for example, the writing stays the same every time you
look at it).
3. Imagine yourself dreaming
After having satisfied yourself that you’re awake, tell yourself, “Okay, I’m not
dreaming, now. But if I were, what would it be like?” Imagine as vividly as possible
that you are dreaming. Intently imagine that what you are perceiving (hearing,
feeling, smelling, or seeing) is a dream: the people, trees, sunshine, sky and earth, and
yourself – all a dream. Observe your environment carefully for your target dreamsigns
from Chapter 2. Imagine what it would be like if a dreamsign from your target
category were present.
As soon as you are able to vividly experience yourself as if in a dream, tell
yourself, “’The next time I’m dreaming, I will remember to recognize that I’m
dreaming.”
4. Imagine doing what you intend to do in your lucid dream
Decide in advance what you would like to do in your next lucid dream. You may wish
to fly or talk to dream characters or try one of the applications suggested later in this
book.

Making a habit of all these things is a important thing.

EXPERIENCE OF A LUCID DREAM
Yes, lucid dream are the dreams with great vividness as waking life and you will be conscious of being in your dreams.
The realization of you being in your dream is the most amazing which can be only achieved through RC.
and yes if you are flying in your lucid dream you will get the same experience as you are really doing it.(sound of wind and your internal voice and the surrounding etc.)

Just try to learn as much as you can and start dreaming. Your skill will increase after a few times.
