    This is so cool. A little scary at first, though. I can do this, and it is better than getting stoned. One problem with it is when you experience false awakenings, where you think you are awake, but you are actually still alseep. You get up for work in your mind, get ready and go, but you are still in bed at 9 am.

    It sounds really interesting, but no matter how hard you try and do it, there`s a good chance you won`t succeed the first few times. Trust me, I`ve tried.

    The thing to look for is that there is always something that just isn`t right. You are awake, but, your alarm clock is on the dresser instead of the night stand. It is always somthing subtle.

    one time i was like...10 and i heard that you could control your dreams, and very soon after i had a nightmare that a clown was chasing me. FOR MUUUURRDERRRRRRRR.

    i realized i was dreaming and just tried to imagine a GIANT shark coming over the horizon and eating the clown and fixing my problems. AND SURE ENOUGH a giant shark came over the horizon and at the clown and fixed my problems!

    once you realize that you are dreaming, you can do whatever you want. and have anything you want happen.

    Once you see that something ist`t what it should be just go with it and see where it takes you. Get past the fear of it, and have some fun, or sometimes horror. The brain is such a powerful thing.

    I found that if I fall asleep infront of the TV (which rarely happens), the blinking lights from it causes me to realize I`m dreaming. Funny because after this happened I had just watched something on the History Channel about the brain and they mentioned how blinking lights could cause you to realize you`re dreaming. Interesting program; I`ll have to find it and watch it again.

    This may not seem like it would be so cool, but, trust me, as a lucid dreamer, lucid dreams are the most incredibly fun things you can do, because they can literally be anything you want them to be. Once you realize you`re dreaming, you are in complete control. You can go flying over mountains (which I promise is one of the coolest sensations ever) or you can grow a thousand feet tall and rampage through downtown Tokyo, shooting fireballs out of your hands. The only limit is your imagination.

    i realized i was dreaming once, and thought "oh! lucid dreaming! time to have fun!" so i was on a bus or something (in the dream), and i went over to talk to someone, assuring myself that because i could control the dream id be friends with everyone, said hello, and they gave me a scathing look and walked away.

    needless to say, i was disappointed.

    i`ve done this before, its harder to do than the vid makes it sound, and you can`t get too excited once your conscious in a dream or you wake up. thats my biggest downfall, i allways get too excited that i finally did it and wake up...

    i guess i agree w tkd. i lucid dream every single night w/o fail and remember almost all of it. despite knowing its a dream i just let it happen so i dont wake up. Unless its a nightmare and then i forcibly wake up and yes its possible because I`m conscious of the transition between the 2. Fun stuff though, i`ll try to spin next time.

    I`ve lucid dreamed a couple of times.

    The spinning thing works too. I had been a sleep over, and I had started lucid dream that I was in a park, and I started to wake up, but in my dream I had jumped on a swing and imagined it to start spinning around and I kept dreaming.

    Alright, now here`s a brain teaser for you... how do you know you`re in a lucid dream and not a dream that just acted itself out as a lucid dream? In other words, what if the dream you thought he or she was controlling the dream, but in reality you have no control?

    I don`t get it? I guess I always have lucid dreams because I can normally know I am dreaming and have no trouble controlling the dream.
    Normally by having myself in the dream do something to have it happen. What I enjoy about dreaming tho is the feeling that I`m not really in control. Allowing me to talk to someone in a dream and interact with them as if I would in real life because you don`t know what may happen. Even tho you do, but you have the feeling you don`t.

    This is cool to introduce people. I`ve been lucid dreaming for, well, exactly one year now. If you are really serious about learning, I suggest going to to learn techniques and such; it`s a great site.

    For this video though... well it doesn`t really tell the truth. Dreaming is such a personal thing, that what some people experience isn`t what others do. I personally have no major issues reading in my dreams, or looking at clocks. Also, I feel pain in my dreams, so the pinching wouldn`t work. As far as I can see in my dream journal, there are no real patterns in my dreams. However, my dreams often have weird scene changes or impossible scenarios which would tell ME I`m dreaming.

    But, like I said, this is personal. Other people may have patterns, have difficulty reading, etc. So those techniques may work. What I`m trying to say is, you have to find what works for you by trial and error, because nobody is the same in this. Good luck to those attempting.

    I almost pulled this off last night. I was stacking things on shelves for my in-dream employer, when I noticed (without provocation) that I was dreaming. I spun around to ground myself in the dream, then I looked about. It was one of the most "real" lucid experiences I`d ever had...

    So I`m not surprised that, within a few seconds, I actually FORGOT that I was dreaming. No fun flying, conjuring, or talking to dream characters for me! :(

    I always have false-awakenings. My alarm clock wakes me up a few times and I keep hitting snooze, then I have a dream that I woke up, got my things and headed out, only to be forced awake on the way to the car by either the alarm clock or my screaming mother.

    Absolutely true story...

    One night, I was up all night and really tired, so then I went to bed. I barely layed in bed and had my eyes closed, when I noticed a falling sensation. It felt like I went through my bed and kept falling at a steady rate. I thought to myself "this is weird" but kept my eyes closed. Next thing I know, I see patches of light coming from everywhere and then I realized I was looking at the sky through a bunch of leaves on a tree. I went directly from an awake state to a dream without ever losing consiousness.

    It only happened one other time in my life but I woke myself up when I started getting the falling sensation because I was freaked out the second time around for some reason.

    Likewise, I`ve always been able to do this... trained myself naturally - surprisingly using the same techniques!

    It works

    And he doesn`t know what he`s on about...

    In my dreams, if I pinch myself (or as I do, bite myself), I DO feel pain! - it`s numb but there`s a definite sensation

    and, yes. through the looking glass would be a crazy drug trip. "dreaming is only fun when you`re high" lololol. i went to a buffett the other night and stuffed my face D:

    I`ve done it too horhawkeric, and though i`m aware that i`m dreaming, I can`t change anything about it, I have to keep going or I wake up. It`s usually something like fending off giant flies of climbing a massive building, and i need to keep going at it.

    I used to be really into lucid dreaming and I would try a bunch of these techniques and even taking amino acid tablets but it never worked for me.

    I lucid dream like 90% of the time. I don`t know how, or why, I just do. Lucky I guess. And yeas, it is very cool.

    When I have a freaky dream I force myself to wake up, so I`m aware that I`m dreaming. Then again, my dreams are so bizarre it`s almost impossible to think I`m not dreaming. I hardly ever remember them though.

    This might not work for me. I hardly ever dream, and when I do, they`re so vivid I chew my lips bloody in my sleep. But it`s a cool notion.

    I thought lucid dreams were just when you`re aware of the fact that you`re dreaming, where you can transition from "awake" to "dreaming" on your own command, but not control what goes on.

    It happens to me all the time. All I have to do is lay down very still until I hear something like a rattlesnake`s tail or a lot of static and I know I`m entering dreamland.

    Although more than half the time, if not always, those dreams end up being nightmares anyways.

    I can wake up during a dream, then go back to sleep and my dreams start where they left off. I guess I have kind of a dream pause button.

    I`ve done it once where i was first trapped under a large polar ice sheet and couldnt breathe, then ran out of breath and started breathing underwater, where i snapped out of it and realised i was dreaming
    such an incredible experience

    I`ve been aware of when I`m dreaming my entire life. Their suggestions don`t help make it more likely for me, it just happens. But even if you`re aware of it, you`re not entirely in control of the dream. I can control my actions but not my situation, for example. Anyway it makes sleeping interesting.

    Also, different people have different experiences in their dreams, so these techniques won`t work for everyone. (some people DO feel pain in dreams, and spinning will only work for some people, etc).

    I`ve gotten close a few times, but then I wake up about 2 seconds after. Then I think I`m lucid dreaming, but I realize I`m awake and just imagining things with my eyes closed. So annoying.

    My nightmares tend to work like a horror movie, i don`t realize that i`m dreaming, but i don`t really have control over my actions (which is really annoying when i do something incredibly stupid lol). it would be cool to be able to do this though.

    To those that ask, lucid dreaming is ONLY defined as knowing you are dreaming in a dream. Control can come as a result, but even with no control, if you know you are dreaming you are still lucid. Also, blackbird`s right about how the techniques won`t work for everyone. As I said before, dreaming is very personal so what works for some doesn`t work for others.

    I love lucid dreams! Whenever I have one, I`m usually good at controlling everything. Sadly, I keep waking myself up at times... I`ll have to try the spinning trick.

    I get lucid dreams all the time, they`re good fun. I can`t manage to wake myself up during nightmares, but everytime I have one I know I`m dreaming so I can just sit there in my dream and be like "yeah, whatever, none of this is actually happening, you can go ahead and attack me zombies.

    i have bizarre dreams. whenever my friends tell me about their dreams they tell me they fly and stuff. but my dreams are wayyyyy more strange. like last night i dreamt i was a bunny and there was a war between a bunch of furry cute animals, and to decide what side you were on you would have a colored wrist band, but i found a reversable wrist band, so i would keep switching sides like a double agent. and it gets far more stranger than that.

    im learning lucid dreaming! it takes time but its definetly working i used to have dreams that i felt realy bad pain in and id wake up sweating and hurting but now i can sometimes become aware im dreaming and change it to do wateva i want. the best way for me is to tell yourself to lucid dream and then stay aware in the hypergognic state- when ur not asleep or awake and u feel like ur spinning around and falling!

    You know now that I think about this I have had lucid dreams to a point. I have been aware of them but not ever to the point I could control them. It mostly was like just watching TV. I will have to try these out and see if I can get into the point I can control them.

    when i was little and had nightmares, i would force myself to close my eyes in my dream, because when i opened them, i would be awake.

    it may be along the same concept.

    man, everytime i get control of my dream I get to wake up on my own command, and that lol.

    It is alitle hard for me to have control of it. its like ofc i want to, but i fi take to much, i get the urge to wake up. adn then i hate myself. xP

    +++ Sometimes i dream things and later it happends :O idk what thats called, but its realy creeping me out. i dream a scenario: im in a place i have never been b4 and som1 says something and simpsons is on the TV. later i go to a birthday party at this girls place and it happends. this dude yells something and Marge is talking about the dog on the tv. and im :O`ing.

    oh and when im lucid dreaming like i did 3 nights ago. it was awesome because i stared in my own horror zombie scenario at my school. idk why, but thats always how my lucid dreams end. in a dead-end. like im running ignto this minimart and i grap this heavy crate thing to block the door, and the door is automatic and open up so i can`t block it and then i wake. xD
    felt incredibly stupid when i thought it over later.

    Okay, I actually started a lucid dream the day after I told myself when I went to bed "I shall have a lucid dream"

    Well, it started off that I was in the neighbors bathroom hiding kittens that looked like my cat (don`t ask) when I realized the bedroom to my friend`s room was on the wrong side of the bathroom and I was like "Omg! I`m DREAMING! I can lucid dream!" So I changed the kitchen into a trashcan and carried on with my dream, forgetting I could do anything.

    Actually, the tip where they say to wake up earlier and to go back to sleep is very good. Most of the time, this WILL actually get you a vivid dream. I`m pretty sure it`s more than 30%-50% though... Or maybe it`s just me...?

    Lewis Caroll wrote Alice in Wonderland because his girlfriend asked him to tell her a story... And that girlfriend was 10 years old.
    A lucid dream may have inspired the story, but he wrote the story for his girlfriend.
