I'd rather not control my dreams, they're more exciting and less predictable that way.

If I could control my dreams, I'd never have seen my mother burst into my room and shoot Slender Man with a shotgun.

I don't even dream. I usually just lie down and wake up 4 hour later feeling like **** . Real men don't sleep. They pass out of exhaustion.

DONT LOOK IN A MIRROR!! AVOID ANY REFLECTIVE SURFACES!!

Your image might be so distorted that it scares the **** out of you, and your dream becomes a nightmare.

Anyone else dream something and then It actually happens in real life and you get deja vu?

There are ways in which you can help induce lucid dreaming by being in bed in a certain way, but I don't recommend them if you want to look into this more.

Sleep paralysis IS NOT ******* fun.

I recommend not looking into mirrors in your dreams... I was dreaming that I was in my friends house and going to the bathroom and for some reason I though "maybe I'm dreaming" and I looked into the mirror and my face was all ****** up with black pits for eyes. Naturally, it scared the living **** out of me and I tumbled to the floor, only to catch a glimpse in the mirror of my cousin coming in through the door. At first her reflection was normal but it slowly warped into something like this picture. Also as her face was warping there was a really loud white noise and it felt like my head was going to explode from pressure. When I woke up, I was like WTF.

Still, lucid dreaming is pretty damn cool when it's not a nightmare, only had a few.

I tried achieving lucid dreaming several times, but I have a hard time actually doing it, because when i am just about to fall asleep, I start snoring...

I have realized that i was dreaming a few times though. One time, I was inside of a tower of ice, and with me was several other people, whom I somehow knew were other sides of myself, or my subconscious. None of them would say anything, they would just silently watch me.

What's weird is that one of them was Carson from star gate Atlantis. I guess i related to him more strongly than i thought.

Here are some other strategies I used to learn to Lucid Dream;
1. Write the letter "A" on your hand. Every time you see it, ask "Am I awake?" Simply asking while sleeping can spark lucidity.
2. Try and push your finger into your hand regularly. In a dream, your hands are very elastic and your finger will go through.
3. Focus on the floor beneath you while looking up. This can have many different results; the ceiling looking like the floor, or as it happens to me, the floor turning into sand. This one is extremely effective because you are required to think about your surroundings.

That's what I did, hope it helps!

I have an accidental trigger. Whenever I see my dead dog I always know I'm dreaming and she shows up all over. also lights. If a light switch doesn't work I just know.

If anyone cares, I have a method that would speed up the dream-recollection process. To keep it short and simple, drink a lot of fluids before you go to bed.
You'll fall asleep, have a dream, and wake up afterwards having to pee. The brain hypothetically makes a prioritized list in which you will complete one sleep cycle before being woken up to pee.
So yeah, you've had one dream, and you wake up to pee. Try to recall the dream and log it and all of that, and then drink a lot of fluid again. Repeat the process.
People often only remember the last dream they had when they wake up, and they usually have around 3-4 dreams each night, each one taking up around 2.5-3 hours of sleep.
Doing this, you can log every dream you have throughout the night, instead of just the last one you'd have.
Sorta just speeds up the process.

Now I'm gonna share my two cents on lucid dreaming:

I kinda like to think of there being two types of lucid dreams. One in which you are in control of yourself, but not the world around you and the entire dream. These are actually quite common. Another in which you are in control of everything. This one is much more difficult to trigger, obviously, but that's what people shoot for.

While you're in REM sleep, your body temporarily paralyzes itself (sleep paralysis) to prevent you from moving while you're dreaming. Otherwise, you might be acting out your dream or harming yourself. While you're lucid dreaming, your body is still in sleep paralysis, and if you wake up in the midst of it, your body will stay paralyzed, and it's absolutely ******* terrifying. Going back to sleep and waking up normally usually fixes this.

And lastly, lucid dreaming gets boring after a while. After giving yourself every super power imaginable and trying to **** everything that breathes, you run out of ideas and it's nice to just let your brain conjure up dreams for a change. I imagine this would be different for the more or less creative people.

Wow, I used all characters.

When you dream, you're paralyzed. I have a condition called narcolepsy that puts me in rem at the wrong times. A good number of days when I'm either waking up or going to bed I start to hallucinate (dream while awake). It's terrifying. I can't move, I can't talk, I can't do anything. I can't tell it's a dream, so I think that it's all real. I've tried lucid dreaming to control it but that **** ... It's too scary.

I remember the dream I was having then even now. It kept alternating from me viewing a god's-eye-view of a world of Bionicles (I was fairly young at the time), and the same view of a world where everyone was a car (the weird thing was this was before the Cars movie). Either way, I was an actual person in the dream at the same time, so basically I kept alternating between two dreams viewing myself in third person, and viewing myself in third person.

The even weirder part was that the landscape of the dreams was almost exactly the same shape as the duvet/quilt (whatever you call it) when I saw myself in third person.

tl;dr I may have been a young LSD taker.

there is ONE flaw in this. You are NEVER supposed to look into a mirror in your dream, ive trained in lucid dreaming for a while. if you look into a mirror, what you see may literally scare the living **** out of you, you might see your biggest fear, a disfigured version of yourself, a truth you dont want. its a dream and its all possible. looking into a mirror will throw you into a nightmare. only after youve trained is it even remotely okay to look into mirrors. when trying to fly, at first you wont be able to, its always like that, just run and jump and keep going. throughout your day, make your backround on your phone something that says "Are you awake?" and get used to it. or at least something related to it. check it regularly, if you get used to this in your dream you will check for it and it will be there and you can do a reality check. at first you might shock yourself awake but you get used to it. one last thing: when you wake up from a successful lucid dream, your body sometimes ends up in a state of paralysis, this is because you were just controlling a body that wasnt yours. you will be like this for a few seconds so dont be alarmed. everything else in this is fairly accurate. good luck and enjoy lucid dreaming!
