I've always wanted to lucid dream, I've been trying on and off but have yet to succeed.
Though, I have noticed that if I wake up, to hit the snooze button, or to pee, that I remember the dream I have after falling asleep.
I always hit the snooze button at least once so that I can remember the dream.

I've had sleep paralysis a number of times, the dark figure or a "presence" in the room... very scary stuff. One time, I felt as if I was levitating, my mind screamming "wake up, wake up, wake up". I can see how people could mistake this for alien abduction.

I've had lucid dreams. At least, I've realised that I'm dreaming. I try to read something and the words turn to nonsense. Or, for me, I try to change the lighting, turn on a lamp, flip a light switch. It never works. That's how I know I'm dreaming. I just have no idea how to take control of the dream. It's always very mundane. Then I wake.

I guess that if I were to have lucid dreams, I'd be lucid at least sometimes...

I have lucid dreams all the time, just last night i got a blowie from reece witherspoon. Not sure why her, probably due to watching american psycho last week. i used to get sleep paralysis fairly regularly when i was a teen, bloody scary especially that instant you 'wake' and discover you cant move, seeing shadowy figures is like the evil cherry on top.

I get sleep paralysis all the time. I wake up angry and don't much like the dark figure.
I want to destroy the dark figure.

I've heard a few people talk about having sleep paralysis. That s#*t sounds terrifying.

Since I had my daughter and decided to nurse, my body's sleep cycle is hopelessly drated. I wake up several times a night even though she no longer needs night feeds to stay asleep. This cuts down on my ability to dream, or remember those dreams when I do. For me it's like I lay down and the next second I'm awake, but really an hour has passed. :\
When I was younger I could sleep for 12 hours straight and remember all of my dreams. Oh well.

I love when I lucid dream fly. One time I kept flying straight up past electric lines and right into outer space. Of course I woke up as soon as it got to the awesome part.

I have a lucid dream probably once or twice a week. The hardest part for me is staying lucid and not popping out of the dream. My favorite thing to do in lucid dreams is break poo I couldn't otherwise break. It's hard to explain.

I have always had lucid dreams without trying. In fact, until I was around 10 or 11 I thought everybody dreamt this way.

Also, the sleep paralysis of my sleeping body doesnt work all that well. I move a lot over the course of the night.

I prefer normal dreaming, or in my case 'abnormal' dreams, lolz!

Same here @HalfPintRoo, at first it was very scary but then when I read about it online, it was easier to control and it doesnt happens anymore

Knew this, as I've often tried to induce a lucid dream. I think I can remember three lucid dreams, and they were probably the most awesome thing I've ever experienced, as you can literally do anything. It's like being Q from Star Trek.
