It's totally safe http://www.lucidity.com/LucidDreamingFAQ2.html#harmful.

This is a cool guide I found for those who wanna learn more about it: http://www.lucidipedia.com/tutorials/ or this http://www.dreamviews.org/content/ this http://www.realityshifter.com/2007/mastering-the-art-of-lucid-dreaming-full-series/ and many more if you Google it.

I've never had lucid dreaming or at least I never seem to remember it :lol:. For many people I asked they say lucid dreaming occurs occasionally, but they don't master it though. If what people claim with what you can do with lucid dreaming, it would be fascinating.

Sometimes I've had dreams and knew that I was. I would also drift between sleep and consciousness.

You can decide wheather or not to have a lucid dream?
How do you do that?

If you are aware that you're dreaming, that means you're having a lucid dream. Usually, people do a reality check like asking yourself whether you're dreaming or not, pinching your arm, turn light on/off etc.

Don't think this belongs in a serious subforum though, the lounge would be more appropriate.

It's so hard for me to start lucid dreaming because I can't keep still for too long. :/

Lala really wants to lucid dream, but Lala goes to sleep too quickly to even think about it.

Those shared websites were helpful, but I've got some questions...
Are lucid dreams always done in a "sleep like" state?
Do serious, deep daydreams not count?
you know, the kind of dreams that happen with the eyes wide open, when you have that
"glassy eyed, totally checked out of time/space reality blank stare kinda look" but you're actually in your mind, wandering around in a different place & situation, oblivious to your current location, yet your parent/teacher/friend/spouce/children think you're faking it?
If so, then I question the so called safety of those sorts of lucid dreams..... you can wake up in some pretty uncomfortable circumstances.

There are people who debate exactly what is going on with lucid dreams, but in general, yes -- lucid dreaming is always done in a sleep-like state. In other words -- at night (or during your bedtime whenever it is), in bed, eyes closed, body not moving or at least only making occasional twitches.

It's not the same thing as a hypnagogic state (the state of being in between waking and sleep, often accompanied by vivid imaginings).

It's also generally not associated with sleepwalking.

I personally believe that it's something most people can do (maybe even everyone, at least barring specific disease or brain injury, but I'm not certain).

There are plenty of great books and websites that provide all the basics, with step 1 almost always being to start a dream journal and develop thorough dream recall.

Thought I would try out some of the tips to see if I could get this to work and fuck me if I actually did. To be fair it could have just been luck seeing as I have a compulsion to look at my watch on a regular basis anyway, maybe just being in the mindset for lucid dreaming helped. It was really weird, you're completely aware, but at the same time not yourself, kind of like being drunk in a way. Needless to say I made the biggest mistake by getting over-excited and managed to wake myself up, spinning didn't seem to work. Staying calm is key, I don't think tearing apart brick walls with your bear hands is what most people consider calm...My bad. xP

I always thought that a lucid dream was one that seemed very real and you could remember it clearly after you woke. I had a wonderful reoccurring dream where I learned to hover above the ground and actually fly. This dream took place night after night and was sequential, in that I kept getting better at it. It started with me being able to sort of push down with my hands and rise off the ground. In subsequent dreams I was able to go higher and move forward. I actually got scared when I went too high at first but got used to it . I started doing tricks and showing off to bystanders. They were the most amazing dreams I ever had. They went on for a period of nights, not every night, but frequently. Then they stopped for a while, but every so ofter they would occur. They wouldn't be the same dream event but would be a continuation of the previous dream. I would wake up after feeling happy and refreshed. The dreams seemed so real that even in the middle of the day I felt that if I tried hard enough I could lift off the ground. Anyone ever have a dream sequence like that?
PS: I haven't had that flying dream in quite a while now but it still vivid in my mind.
