This is not mine, found it on the interwebs

How To Control Your Dreams
First you need to draw a dot on each of your
thumb nuckles, like so... I
Now about every couple of minutes until you go
to sleep, look down at your thumbs and say "t
am not dreaming" so your brain fully remembers
the two dots on your thumbs. Before you go to
sleep, keep reminding yourself that their are two
dots on your thumbs.
When you fall asleep, (the hard part) try to look
at your thumbs in the dream.
When you see your thumbs have no dots on
them, you will know that you are dreaming. You
may wake up because usually when you know
you' re sleeping, you wake up. " may take a
few days to stay asleep when you see you
have no dots.
When you can finally control your dreams, you
can do whatever the **** you want, kinda like

May be a really dumb question but, how do you get out of it? Do you wake normally? I have probably 20 different ways I could lucid dream but I'm a little bitch at the thought I'd drop into a coma.

when i was younger like 10 i would just lucid dream alot of times.... but most are not the best.. i cant control lujcid dreaming.. like i just cant sleep and say okay tonight im not lucid dreaming... so i would lucid dream this nightmare and i cant get out of it.. its so scary u will **** ur pants after u wake up...

TL;DR close ur eyes and say in your mind wake up wake up or just kill urself in the dream... just make sure its not real life lol

Sleeping and having a coma are very different. Even if you somehow were stuck dreaming you would eventually wake up normally.

I actually dreamed that I was pissing in the other day. It felt so real, so satisfying. I was just going to go about my day when I started feeling strange and then I woke up.
I didn't piss myself in real life but the level of how real that dream felt was unbelievable. I actually scared myself when I woke up because I was that immersed in my dream.

LOL im kind of a lucid dreaming expert, i've been doing it since i was 10, sometimes when i do WILD (Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming) i wake up with sleep paralysis, if you wake up with sleep paralysis just hold your breath to shock your body out of the paralysis, also while paralyzed you might have hallucinations (shadow figures, people calling your name etc.) just remind yourself that they arent real.

I get that sleep paralysis thing a lot. I use it to induce the lucid dreams though.
Like I lie there for about 30 minutes completely still and eventually this weight comes over me like something is pressing down on my chest. Then eventually I drift off too sleep, but in this time obviously my mind is awake and my body is asleep. So I get those hallucinations you mentioned, it's freaky **** . I heard someone at my window one time which was horrid as I'm on the second floor.

Is that the same as WILD?
#977 to #531 - funmanigro (07/05/2012) [-]
that "weight" is just your mind playing tricks on you, you actually CAN breath but your brain is telling you there is something on your chest while there isnt.

I wake up paralyzed and hallucinate without trying, it ******* scary sometimes. Ill try the holding breath trick though.

you start to see colors and squared n **** . BUT then, with my eyes still closed my 'vision' turned red, my head started to hurt, and i couldnt breathe. I got scared as **** , and i'm never gon do it again.
#998 to #920 - funmanigro (07/05/2012) [-]
its called hypnagogic hallucination, you actually CAN breath but your mind is amplifying the feeling of gravity on your lunges, so it feels liek something is pushing your chest down, and the red "vision" is light passing through the veins in your eyelids. this will happen if you get a very strong white light and shine it at your eyes while they're closed, you'll see the same red vision. its just your brain amplifying everything around you

I woke up with sleep paralysis it was the most scary thing ever. I fell asleep on the sofa (or couch whatever you call it) the night before and when I woke up in the morning my mum was sat on the chair across the room I couldn't move so I tried to tell her and I couldn't talk I laid scared ******** for five minuets most terrifying thing ever.
I'm british BTW.
#88 to #80 - funmanigro (07/04/2012) [-]
try moving your toes bit by bit, or hold your breath to shock yourself out of it. i've personally have had many sleep paralysis episodes, but only one time i got one with hallucinations, that was ******* terrifying, i woke up in my bed, laying on my right side to a wall next to my bed, i couldnt move but i could see on the corner of my eye something moving, and i could hear blood rushing in my ear and my heart pumping, it sounded like giant steps. i closed my eyes so that i dont see whatever was over there and held my breath, then i got up and sat in the corner crying...
User avatar #687 to #88 - Fgner (07/04/2012) [-]
1) Sleep paralysis is caused by the halt in the production of monoamines, causing REM atonia (where motor neurons are shut down). Sometimes histamines (as an example) can be released early, causing you to immediately wake up, even though the REM cycle is still in effect (as well as REM atonia).
2) Your brain is designed to make you scared of everything, even things that don't exist. It would rather you stay on your toes with false alarms then die by the one time you aren't afraid.
3) If you ever go to a perfect silence room, the same effect happens with your hearing. You lose all balance and even standing is impossible (literally impossible), heartbeats sound like earthquakes, and you begin to hallucinate wildly. Interesting stuff.
User avatar #671 to #80 - Fgner (07/04/2012) [-]
Why say you're British? Out of curiosity?

Anyway, try to look up night terrors. Sleep paralysis may be scary, but imagine a world where it is literally designed by your own subconscious as your personal Hell. Imagine the worst possible thing you could ever do to yourself, and then multiply that by a few (since your subconscious knows you better than you.)
User avatar #63 to #31 - whatsgoodyo (07/04/2012) [-]
How do you personally induce lucid dreaming? I really want to be able to do it on command. There have been multiple occasions where it just randomly happens to me on days where I'm incredibly tired and I absolutely love the feeling of them.
#66 to #63 - funmanigro (07/04/2012) [-]
most of my lucid dreams are unintentional too, thats how it started, but then i started asking people and googleing, and bit by bit i almost perfected it, also i 			******		 Selena Gomez last night :   
   
i'll tell you the simplest way to get a WILD,   
   
1. set your alarm clock 3 hours earlier (if you wake up on 6 AM, set it to 3 AM)   
2. after waking up from the alarm clock, do some calculations in your head, or count to 10   
3. close your eyes while still counting/equating   
4. DONT 			*******		 MOVE, you want to make your body think that you're asleep so that it can release DMT and make you dream   
5. by this time you'd be in sleep paralysis    
6.now you'll start seeing random shapes and liens infront of you, slowly they will become meaningful shapes, like buildings and people, just think that these lines are people, and they will be.   
   
   
   
that wasnt very accurate and detailed buy thats the best i can get to describing it.

if you keep them open you'll see some hallucinations, but as soon as you close your eyes you'll start dreaming
User avatar #187 to #66 - piptime (07/04/2012) [-]
Are you saying that (step 6), when you see all those figures, you're imagining them while you're awake or you're seeing them in the dream?

hypnagogic visions, hypnagogia is the phase between being awake and asleep.

I don't like all their techniques, I'll give you some methods. All there WILD stuff is sleep depriving and tedious.
1) Take your vitamins. Certain vitamins (too lazy to Google) increase lucid dreaming.
2) Keep a dream journal, every morning before you do ANYTHING write everything you can possibly remember. It'll teach your brain to remember all of your dreams after a couple weeks of doing it. What fun is lucid dreaming if you can't remember doing it? If you don't remember you'll get frustrated and quit because you think you're failing. Find common things between all of your dreams that will help you identify.
3) Sleep on your back, and while falling asleep start imagining your fantasy world, and every couple seconds repeat "I am dreaming." It'll be the first memory to be loaded into long-term memory, and you'll be more likely to get hints of dreams in it.
4) Dreams are simply the conscious brain interpreting the memory control being done by the subconscious. By spending a few minutes a day planning out your lucid dreams and focusing on them, you'll load up short term memories of your lucid dream to be sent to long-term. Thus at some point the dream will most likely happen and you can identify.
5) You don't need dots, just make it a habit to constantly question yourself. Do this about every couple hours. Do a couple tests each time, what I do is: a) Analyze the reality of a situation. Is this feasible? b) Close your eyes and imagine somewhere else then open them, if you're dreaming you might change scenes. c) Close your eyes and spin, that'll have the same effect a lot. d) Lean against a wall while thinking "this wall isn't even solid." Dreams often have walls that you can go through. and if you KNOW you are dreaming but you still aren't lucid, fold your arms and let yourself fall on your back, Dreams won't let you hit the ground, when you open your eyes you'll be standing somewhere. Even lucid dreaming, mirrors give you nightmares and terrifying reflections.
User avatar #667 to #659 - Fgner (07/04/2012) [-]
The WILD method is like learning to program in python by writing "Hello World" in assembly, it's impractical and you get nothing out of it. It ruins 2 of your 4 (if you get enough sleep) sleep cycles, and only works sometimes. The way I give you will give you the ability to remember magnitudes more of your dreams in greater details, and will actually give you the ability to lucid dream the majority of your dreams. AND you get to keep all your sleep unharmed.

And I think the vitamin is an omega? Idk, Google it.
User avatar #911 to #659 - miauri (07/05/2012) [-]
have you looked into a mirror while lucid dreaming? what did you see?
#982 to #911 - funmanigro (07/05/2012) [-]
some people say that your reflection in the mirror is actually your soul (thats why vampires have no reflections)
User avatar #918 to #911 - Fgner (07/05/2012) [-]
Changes all the time. The first time I woke up. The second time I was thrown into a nightmare where the walls stripped away and my mom ran into the room, then her skin peeled back and some monster started attacking me. Another I just saw, I can't really describe it... It's like... Everything I hated about myself without any of the good (I had low self-confidence). A few other times there were no reflects and then I think another one I just fell into a trance and stared at my own reflection the rest of the dream.
User avatar #931 to #918 - miauri (07/05/2012) [-]
i can recall some unintentional lucid dreaming, but i wake up pretty quick every time. for how long do you lucid dream? and lol, is it worth it?
User avatar #948 to #931 - Fgner (07/05/2012) [-]
Okay, I went ahead and did some research. Dreams are capable of lasting theoretically infinitive amounts of time, it's just one of the hardest things to accomplish. Normal dreams pass in a realtime scale usually, and lucid dreams follow suit, you'd need to trick your mind into using a new scale of time. For instance one of my sources used hypnosis to convince a group of people that a minute was an hour, then asked them to design a choreography in their head in an hour. At the end of the hour they had done an hours worth of thought and design relative to the control that barely had the first few moves down. Time is relative to the possessor. Interesting stuff.
User avatar #936 to #931 - Fgner (07/05/2012) [-]
Lucid dreaming can last an undefined amount of time. Dreams are weird things, not very detailed studies about them. Some evidence points to the frame of time being defined dynamically by the brain during dreams (an hour in a minute for example) while some evidence points to exact frames of time. I've had lucid dreams where they lasted a week, but in dream time. But then again the days might have been extremely short, everything could have been extremely accelerated. Overall, it's random how long they last.

And yes, I'd say it's worth it. You sleep for 1/3 of your life. Wouldn't it be great if you could experience every fantasy and dream you could ever hope to desire in that time instead of wasting it with random **** that is only SOMETIMES interesting?

Yesterday, when i was trying to sleep, I heard like 2 men talking to eachother and the voices just dissapeared.

He dissapeared like 5 seconds later or so but I have no 			*******		 idea how and why I heard and saw these things.

Because if you even tried to Google you would see that lucid dreaming is the act of being conscious of the dream state and having total and absolute control. And that your condition was sleep paralysis combined with NREM hallucination.
