I haven't gotten lucid in a dream in months. I've done much wrong which I think have caused it, but after finally getting my hands on Stephen LaBerge's "Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming", I got more motivation than ever! My dream recall haven't gone really well, and I don't remember much from those I actually remember. But just this morning I remembered more than I usually do, and ended up writing down around 2000 words in my DJ. Even though I wasn't lucid, I think of it as a huge improvement for me, and I got this enjoyable feeling that've leaved me happy all day turn3


Current LD goal(s): Make my dreams more vivid, and fix my flying problem..

@Cabin:
Ye, you've got a point. But still, I don't see how improvement in something would cause this feeling.. It's not just happyness you know.

And yes, I think you should never give time for LD'ing. You must have a mindset like: "I will have a lucid dream no matter what". In first I thought like: "I have time, whenever I improve a little bit its good". That I saw its not working. Now I have LD's by will, no matter how non-vivid they are (although I didn't will it much this month, school and stuff sadblauw ).

Lucid dreams are nothing but a mindhack, its not a normal state. For a mindhack to work you need pressure on your SC, or it just won't work. That's how techniques work actually, you stress out your SC, and it gives you an LD to stop the stress. Once you stopped it, it stops giving out LD's, because it has no reason to do it.



Current LD goal(s): Visit outer space, summon the first lucid dreamer.

Deciding that I'm going to become lucid/remember my dreams doesn't work for me...

I have no scientifical data to back this up,

But I believe while your experiencing a vivd LD, your brain activity spikes higher than if you were having a fuzzy ND that you can't recall. This is why you feel energized and "alert" when its over.

I'm basing this off of personal experience, so it makes perfect sense to me.. grin

Im usually really rubbish in the morning but I deff feel very different if Ive been LD. Its just a readiness to deal with the day, to get up, more energy to tackle the problems of that day. If I just wake up from a normal nights sleep without remembering any dreams I feel muzzy and tired, usually want to stay in bed and go back to sleep. Ive never been a morning person and I always work better at night but the times I have LD I could bounce straight out of bed and get going with little problems. They should bottle and sell LD it'd make a fortune, a new miracle cure tounge2

It would probably be the most awful experience ever. For sleep paralysis to work for LD's, you need to adjust to it slowly (or should I just say that you must relax), so it makes no sense to go into it instantly.

rolleyes True but we're just having a bit of fun. Imagine the positive side to being able to LD at will, whenever and where-ever you want. Its the way you feel afterwards. No more Monday morning blues, problems can be sorted out during LD, no more over sleeping and grogginess in the morning. People strive for years trying to find a way to make them feel like that but if they learnt to LD they would have it. May be there should be LD workshops or study courses teaching people how to achieve LD. We all have the ability although some are more receptive than others. Its the feeling when you wake up we're on about, thats priceless!

This would be an awesome course in college, I know my Advanced Psychology class covers LDing breifly where you record a DJ and minor things... But IMAGINE a full course just on Lucid Dreaming. One day we can almost gaurentee Lucid Dreams to the students, and spread this great phenomenon to the entire world. I guess its our job (the youth) to shape the future of the world. siiw

They actually have lucid dreaming camps. Many times, they are put on by neuropsychologists to raise money for further research.

Are they expensive?
And is there some sort of age requirement?

I wonder what the camps are like, you'd never know if you were walking around in the dream or if your surroundings were real ^^ it must be very surreal to stay in a place where people are LD all the time and everything is focussed on that one thing. I dont know if I would like it, LD has a place in my life but to be totally consumed by that would make it lose its appeal, well to me anyway.
