About the shared ones... If those exist...

Is it possible to go from your dream to somebody else and mess with them a bit? The people that don't know how to Lucid Dream?

*evil smile*


After reading this, it reminds me of a Spongebob Squrepants ep were Spongebob Astral Projects, and then walks around his own town and then enters his friends dreams, in the end his friends all gang up on him... lol

It's quite funny... Sorry if it's off-topic.

Just thought I'd share it with you lot colgate

I woke up a morning, remembered a dream, and wrote it down. I then had slept for 6 hours, but I wanted to sleep longer. I tried to get to sleep using MILD. When I began visualising the previous dream, my mind wandered a bit into the dream. I remembered something (about a woman with a beard) very vividly, but then I insulted her somehow - she pulled a knife from her pocket, and said: 'huh, I didn't have this knife before. this is a dream!' 1st LD!!!
I 'woke up' in bed, did a RC, and discovered I was dreaming. I started spinning, but it was more like 3rd person: i didn't feel like I was spinning. Then I jumped out of the window, but saw that everything was very grey and vague. Then I woke up.

Anyway - how can I clear things up?

Rubbing your hands increases Lucidity.

Is sleep paralysis having you able to move but for some reason really not wanting to? Or cant you move even if you wanted to?

Sleep paralysis is, as the name implies paralysis. That means that you can not move, even if you want to. It shuts down the connection between your brain and your body, so that your body doesn't do what you are dreaming that you are doing. There are some people in the world that have a problem with this, and they do not get SP. They do everything that they dream that they are doing. SP normally starts at the same time that you start dreaming and stops when you stop dreaming. With WILD, some people do get SP before they start dreaming. Lots don't.
It is more common to have SP when you wake up during a dream. If you get SP before you fall asleep, or when you wake up, it is a timing error in your brain. Lots of people never get SP. I have never had SP, and I have done WILD. You do not have to have SP to be able to WILD, and you can have SP without being able to turn it into an LD.
Just my two cents worth.

What about:

Can lucid dreams change you?
Yes. As an exemple, you can train yourself to be less shy, or you can learn a song. And lucid dreams can change you in a positive way more than normal dreams, because you can focus on learning a certain thing. And lucid dreams cannot change you in a negative way more than normal dreams, because you do not want to have scary dreams, so when you're lucid, you also probably won't make them.

For me, it does not matter for how tired I am, but how much sleep I get. How more sleep I get, how more LD's I get.

Do Not having a DJ lowers your ability to LD?

No, it just probably lowers your ability to remember your dreams. If you can't remember it, what's the point in having an LD at all?

Well thought. And reading back old DJ's is also a good stimulation to continue LD-ing. ^^

I was just thinking, if you don't recall dreams from when you first go to sleep (I can only remember dreams that i interupt and dreams from the morning) then if you do get Lucid you won't remember it?
Or are you more likely to remember an LD because you are more conscious or aware if you get what i mean?
What are people's thoughts on this? How could you remember dreams from earlier in the night?

If you have a LD, and don't fall out of it, You'll know about it, When the dream ends. You wake up, and since you were concious, you should remember it all.
