For me, dream pain isn't horrible. Whenever I do something painful in a LD i just tingle a little and move on. Of course, I haven't had that much experience with pain in a LD overall.

Well I have only experienced pain once in that dream when I got a huge bit of wood through my palm, but it was more funny than painful. It's how I reacted in the ND that made me laugh.

My sense of touch is extremely dulled in dreams. In fact, the only time I feel pain in them is if my IWL body is in bad pain.

Hey, welcome to LD4all welcome

In dreams, your mind simulates pain. If you're hit the the groin, your mind will try to duplicate that pain as much as possible to RL. The same goes for pleasure. When you're in an LD, however, pain is more based on what you expect it to feel like. Let us know if you have any other questions about how to become lucid ^^

I've had that happen too, excpet mine was in the heart. It felt more like an ache than actually being shot, but maybe that's because your SC doesn't want to duplicate life threatening pain?

In lucid dreams I feel things like in real life. I can feel the wind around me when flying, the warmth and dryness of a DC's hand when I shake it. The coolness of water when I dive in it, and also pain. My foot scraped a tree branch when I flew too low and it felt real. I've been reading about OBEs and the author is writing about how how much more realistic then LDs they are. Guess he hasn't been in mine. I am curious to find out though. you have just lost the game


Current LD goal(s): ~get better at making a healing energy sphere, conquer doubt, fear & negativ

Wow, guys, all these stories are certainly interesting! Isn't it amazing how every single sense is stimulated in dreams?

I have just woken up from a ND where I was playing basketball with my roommate. When I tried to score a point, he grabbed my neck with one of his arms and would't let go. I started to asphyxiate! I shouted "Dude, let go! DUDE!" and the feeling was horrible (I still feel the pressure in my neck as I write this). Even worse, my dream roommate didn't let me do a RC. It was so weird being suffocated by my own friend that I thought "quick, I need a nose RC!!" Never happened, I just could't move my arms. tounge2

So I guess pain is a very convenient way to gain lucidity, maybe? It almost worked for me!

Ive never felt pain in an LD ive landed on my side from large falls and had no problems, i dont realy remember ever having a dream where i felt pain before that one but it wasnt fun at all. but this has giving me a good idea, i think every time i feel pain RL i will do a RC so then hopefully i can develope the habit of questioning my state when feeling pain.

I've had the good fortune to never feel true, real pain in a dream. Whenever something happens that would hurt IRL, I just get this weird, uncomfortable, tingly sensation that a few others in this thread mentioned.

Pain is actually one of my main methods of reality checking. I know it's cliche, but I actually do pinch myself to see if I'm dreaming. If it hurts, I'm awake. If it doesn't, it's time to fly. wink

I've never felt pain in a dream. Maybe a tiny tickling scratch or bruise but I'm used to those anyway because somehow I always seem to get myself hurt...
I Once had a very interresting dream though, in which I was hiding from a group of armed people, I think they were Nazi's during WWII. Eventually I did got shot and I died, but I felt no pain, just a incredible feeling that felt as a sort of relief when I left my body, as if I had no weight and was as free as I ever was. It was kinda strange but very interresting cause I'm not even sure what I really believe happens after death.

It still amazes me how our dreams can recreate things so well! Like feeling pain. It sucks.. But that's about the only thing that does.

My idea of pain in an LD is kinda different. My buddy had told me about a time where in a LD he was in the water with a shark (classic). The shark bit him and he described it as "feeling like I[he] broke my[his] arm again." This leads me to believe that the SC needs something to "reference back to," pain in this case, for the body to experience it... but then again, i could be totally wrong tounge2


Current LD goal(s): im in it 4 the experience
