Lucid Dreaming

It’s happened to me quite a few times throughout the years, and it always involves me looking for a random woman to fuck.

When it happens, I have to make sure I stay focused, because a little slip will cause me to wake up.

The last time it happened, which was some months ago, I was driving in some suburban neighborhood looking for girls. It was dusk, and nobody was around.

I was getting frustrated, so I just stopped at a house, walked in and looked around until I saw an attractive enough woman, picked her up, put her on a nice, polished hardwood table, lifted up her skirt (which was ugly by the way. Flowered print, and very busy)and started eating her.

Then I pulled her off the table, bent her over and fucked her in front of the people that were now in the room.

Of course I woke up, soon after…

I found this site useful. You can download a nice audiobook covering all the basics about lucid dreaming. I’ve only had one lucid dream so far but and I just walked around a little then I woke up but just the experience of a dream that feels like reality was amazing.

EDIT: of course every dream we have feels like reality but the difference is that in a lucid dream you’re conscious that you’re dreaming.

I have a lucid dream once every 3 or 4 months, and have since I was a kid. I never actually fly in them, but do this half-flying, half-leaping motion EXACTLY like the Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon type leaping, except I can kinda control with my mind how long I stay soaring through the air. When that movie came out it freaked me out a little, because I’d been doing that in lucid dreams for years. Most of the time it’s very action movie like, and I’m always running away being chased by someone or something, it’s different every time.

The best ones, once a year or so, are when it’s a sex dream. That’s friggin amazing. It’s like an interactive live virtual reality porn session. The last one I had, my mom called and woke me up in the middle. I wanted to bludgeon her to a bloody pulp. I tried to go back to sleep and restart it, but of course it didn’t work.

I used to have these all the time. It is very effective for stress management and handling nightmares.

doing activities like flying are very interesting. Usually It can be a mixture of focussing very hard and willing yourself to do it, or being able to jump very high and fast and gradually being able to do it. Also you should try looking up at the sky in a lucid dream. It looks very amazing.

Of course sex is the first thing people want to try in a lucid dream. However unless you have had a lot of lucid dreaming experience you will most likely just wake up.

I could write probably for hours about my lucid dreaming experiences. It can get really cool when you land yourself in a virtual Gladiator-type realm, hacking down enemies with thousands of people cheering you on, and lots of naked women at your knees, begging for you.

Apparently you can get so advanced that you literally create worlds and alternate universes - I don’t know how much experience you need for that though or if it’s even possible.

I think lucid dreaming is great just for chilling and fucking some virtual babes (who can look EXACTLY like you want, which is awesome), and just having some fun generally.
The need to do consistent reality checks and other responsibilities have quickly made me too lazy to try this stuff anymore.

I don’t want any.

I used to suffer with constant recurring nightmares as a kid, until eventually I learnt to control what’s happening, since then, I never normally remember what I dream.

The odd couple of occasions I have had a really vivid dream, it’s always of the same thing. I’m laying in bed with someone I love, normally just laying there in each others arms, she gets out of bed to go to the toilet and I drift off to sleep. When I wake up, there’s a few moments where I wonder why she’s taking so long in the bathroom and where she is then I generally spend the rest of the day in a rather down and depressed state.

Guess you could say I still have nightmares.

There’s also another interesting application possibility of lucid dreaming beside having sex with porn stars and being a superhero: Using them to learn and deepen complex movements and skills like playing basketball etc.

It’s basically a more demanding, but also more effective way of visualization, something I’m sure all of us here at this site use to a certain degree, wether conscious or not.

It could also be useful for strength training. It would be a way of training the nervous system and deepen the movement patterns, therefore getting stronger without fatiguing the muscles.

I still have lots of wet dreams. Those are great! Until I wake up in the morning and my boxer shorts are glued to my balls.

I quit smoking three years ago, but sometimes I dream that I am smoking. When that happens, it feels so real that when I wake up I feel guilty, like I actually did smoke.

Supposedly lucid dreaming is a method for tapping in to the occult.

Many of Histories well known philosophers, composers, scientists etc were occultists who claim their biggest ideas came to them in dreams of illumination after meditation.

Virtually all of the middle age and Renessaince “inventors” were occultists practicing alchemy and developing practical scientific theories at the same time.

Eintstien is quoted to have developed E=mc2 in a dream. When he woke up he wrote down the equation and started working with it.

Beethoven was a member of secret societies who tap in to the occult and supposedly his most famous pieces came to him in dreams etc.

Anyways, google lucid dreaming and occult and you will get tons of pages discussing methods to bring them on. I guess the religious connotation behind them is up to the individual to decipher.

They are discussing the occult, not particular cults. There is a difference.

I’ve had the same lucid dream since I was about 8 years old, same identical dream about once every few months. It’s bizarre because I tell myself in the dream that I’m sleeping and therefore all the weirdness is OK.
I also had a dream once where I told some people a very funny joke in French. My French is not great, but this was spot on and I woke up laughing my ass off in the middle of the night. My bf thought I’d lost my mind, and the worst part was when I told him the joke with tears running out of my eyes from laughing, he didn’t find it funny.

Anyone ever dream something, and then that something actually happens the next day?

If I can become skilled at creating lucid dreams, I think I would like to practice playing drums. If I move faster then normal in the dream, that would be insanely useful in developing new beats.

I have lucid dreams all the time, which are really kind of spooky, especially the “out of body” ones where you look at your body in your bed and then you try to move but you can’t. Then your “spirit” is walking around the house trying to figure out if it’s really a dream.

So after reading this thread last night I went to bed concentrating on having a sex dream. Ending up dreaming about sex all night. Only problem was it was always me watching others having sex. Not lucid at all. Must be too much porn.

I’ve only had one, but good god! Quite an experience. Like being in a fu**in reality fillum.

I searched for some reading on this, and came across this site. Seems to have days’ worth of reading on it…

Anytime I realize I’m dreaming, I usually take off flying. I’ve gotten better with practice, my flying height and speed has improved over time.

I had one dream before that I was Supreme, the Image comic variant of Superman.

I stormed into Valhalla and defeated a couple of Norse gods, I haven’t been able to have a dream like that again, that was the coolest dream ever.

Talking about superheros, there have been a few times were I dreamt I was Batman (from the tv series Batman of the Future, to be precise - that incarnation is way cooler than the original). With my flying ‘BatPod’ my dreams would consist of gliding through dark city skies and then swoop down and beat up some villains.

There was a particularly epic one where I teamed up with Aquagirl, and a teenage Green Lantern to take on some Joker cult base or something. It was pretty badass.

I’ve heard people who take SSRI’s (Paxil and the like) have very vivid/ lucid dreams.

 People who are sleep deprived will experience something called REM rebound as a result of not getting any/ enough REM sleep. This will result in longer episodes of REM sleep. Some people will also comment on vivid lucid/ dreams. 

 Along with sleep deprivation come hypnogogic hallucinations and sleep onset paralysis. Fun!

 Rem sleep is very interesting and still remains somewhat mysterious.

Apparently the consensus is you have to do reality checks ALL day long.

i know im dreaming around 70% of the time when i dream, and i can control them sometimes fully sometimes partially, I didnt even know there was a special name for this and apparently i have a gift, yay?[/quote]

same here, maybe not as frequent as you, but I figured it was normal. I’m conscious and making decisions. Hell, last night I had this dream that I’ve had often. In my dream last night, I called BS on what was going down, because I was tired of that damn dream all the time, lol

no, but months or years later when something happens, I’ll pause and be like “I swear I’ve dreamed of this”

I’ve only had one lucid dream. In it, i had my back to a cliff, with a lion approaching me. It lunged at me, and i grabbed it around its head and tossed it off the cliff. Woke up right after… gonna have to try some of those “techniques” to induce another.
