It's scary at first, but then you get used to it. What scares me more is the fact that I'm having dreams like that more often... which is weird because I used to hardly dream at all... It's like there's just a random moment where I'm thinking "is this a dream? Yeah. It's a dream." Then I just ignore that and carry on with whatever I was doing even though I'm aware that I'm dreaming. I had one of those dreams this morning and it was surprisingly vivid, even after so many hours have passed since I woke up. It involved someone from my past and I couldn't help but get so nervous and do nothing but sit down. Of course, that person walked in after I already realized I was in a dream.

I heard sleep paralysis is a lot worse, though. It's like having a nightmare in real life or something like that. I hope I never experience that.

Sounds like you've had some fun manipulating your dreams. Those poor imaginary dinosaurs never knew what hit them. Flying over Toronto on top of a robot sounds scary but at least you had a nice view!



sleep paralysis is like a nightmare in real life, mine basically, i was stuck there like there was this pressure on me and everything in my room is the way it is in the dream and dark shadow figures approach me, stare at me, say things to me( i only had something said to me once) and when i wake up I'm wondering if it was a dream and if I'm still dreaming.

I usually don't, but then when I'm at a point where I'll wake up in 3 hours or so, I enter a half dream kind of state sometimes, where I am kind of in control. Problem is, it gets really...addicting, so I end up sleeping for 14 or 15 hours.

Most of the time I know I'm dreaming and sometimes I can control what happens in it. This happens only when I'm in a dangerous situation and I told to myself once "this is only a dream" and got myself out of danger.

There are other times when my dreams just seem so real and I cry...then I wake up crying but once I open my eyes I take a sigh of relief because everything was a dream....I love sleeping because of all this weird stuff lol

oh wait, I just remember that I have also had a "dream within a dream" which is basically when you wake up from a dream and continue life as normal....but then you wake up again!(this time for real) and I'm like I've had this a few times.

Btw, does anyone else ever hear music or distinct speaking voices in dreams? And I don't mean those coming from outside your dream. I heard somewhere that you don't actually hear sounds in dreams, or that you can't read words if you look at a book or newspaper etc. in a dream. However, I have experienced both. Maybe my imagination fooled me?


Yes! I've had dreams where I was listening to a song and I woke up with the lyrics in my head. Another time I had instrumental music in my dream, and I still don't know what it was (I'm assuming I've heard it in real life somewhere). As for reading, I only remember reading a digital clock, if that counts. But yeah, maybe my imagination fooled me... maybe when I woke up my mind somehow filled in the music that I only had a sense of in the dream.

I know that I'm dreaming, but I can't do anything I want in it; it's like watching a movie or something.

Last night was the second time in my life where I was able to wake myself up from a dream. The dream turned very weird and I became aware I was asleep and tried moving my body in the real world for a forced wake up. Although I didn't have the ability to alter the dream itself

Sort of, but it's never clear that I know I am dreaming. I never tell myself, "This is a dream." But I do realize that I have control over it. So sometimes I add cool things like monsters that I can fight... lol

As a kid I used to know a lot of the time when I was dreaming. I would even have methods for waking up from nightmares; there's been other dreams where I've been in charge of the dream content. It's all dumb really.

I can remember plenty of my dreams...
...where I never had control of them (not lucid). It was like watching a movie.

I've also had at least 3 lucid dreams which I can recall. My first time was completely accidental. It was after school, I returned home late from X-country practice. I remember being very eager to get on Skype because of this "girl" I was completely infatuated with. When I actually got to my bed, however, I didn't even take my shoes off. I just plopped on my bed, buried my face in my pillow, and I KOed pretty fast.
Looking back, the lucid dream was probably induced...
...by the factors that I was so tired that my body was completely relaxed, and the anxiety I had to continue being awake because I still hadn't logged onto Skype, but I was too physically exhausted to wake up. In fact, I didn't even realize I had fallen asleep! I was just resting my eyes for a few seconds and was going to log on and video chat with that "girl".

When I saw "her" in my dream, I did feel like I was dreaming, but it was like any other dream at first. She continued to act in ways which flattered me, such as publicly displaying her affection for me, and becoming jealous of an obsessive witch who was after me. She was like a combat anime girl for a moment! That silly scene kept replaying until it reached a favorable outcome!

Then "her", myself and two of my friends (one of which was flirting with "her") were relaxing in a room with lounge chairs. I closed my eyes briefly, and suddenly my head was covered with a burlap-fabric potato bag. I vividly remember feeling the texture of the bag against my skin. I heard the voices of my friends, and then "her" voice saying "just shoot him." To this day I am not sure how I was supposed to interpret that scene, but at that moment, my dream became lucid.

It was the longest dream I had ever experienced...
...and there's no way I am going to tell the entire story here because no one is going to read it anyway ha ha.. But to keep it brief:

  • I ran away from that nightmare quickly. I initially spent a lot of time just exploring, flying through mountains, valleys, parks, etc.
  • You can go ahead and judge me, but I am ashamed to admit I did perv around. My true colors came out when I was the king lol...
  • After my hours of fun (not all of it was pervy so you can stop judging me now), I began conducting experiments such as:
    • Testing my strength and speed
    • Talking with the citizens of my dream
    • Giving commands to the citizens of my dream. At one point I was convinced they still had their own beliefs just like normal people, And when I realized they were mindless drones fabricated from my own interpretations of other people, I became extremely frustrated and even started yelling at them
  • I did come in and out of control of the dream at times, and I was even aware when I was fading out of control, as if my will-power was not enough to overcome the mental exhaust
  • And the scariest part was... when I was trying to wake up, I would "wake up" and shortly after find out I was still dreaming. I spent a lot of time trying to wake up, and woke up right back into the same dream so many times I became helpless

I find that some of my dreams used to repeat. I dreamed the same dream twice during the night so the second time I could recognize it and can control it because I know the dream's logic and what happens. Almost all of my nightmares are actually the same 4 or so dreams that come back again over and over through the years with slight changes. At this point I normally realize part way through that it is one of the nightmare dreams and then take control and try to get a "good ending". E.g. my nightmares:
