I already said how to and I'm not repeating myself. Anyways, I had a great dream that went lucid and backfired on me. I was going to post it at 3am when I woke from it but I went to play ff1 on my phone instead. All I can remember is being soo afraid that I played ff1. It had a demon in it. Something that is a recurring motif in my dreams and nightlife. I should make my house go through an excorism. I am aetheist, but I do believe in demonic entities.

And I thought I was the only one on this site who can. Or can you only do it for napping?

"Can" makes it sound like I do it voluntarily. It happens during the day only. Whether I intend to sleep or not, there are a lot of times when I do, and my eyes are open. My ex-gf recorded me doing this one time, and I thought it was creepy as ****. I'd rather not for several reasons. I usually have a short dream, and then I realize I'm not awake, but don't realize I'm sleeping, and then struggle to move but can't.

My method of it is just a self induced trance right before falling asleep. Apparently, I scared the **** out of my friends one night. I did this, and they started ****ing with me while I was asleep. And they started getting into thinking, 'Oh, he wont wake up.'
Then, BAM! I hit REM. My eyes flew wide open and they freaked out! Theyre screaming woke me.
To this day, they tell me 'Just dont fall asleep again.' To which I reply, 'Dont **** with me again, and you wont scared when I catch you in the act.'

But, yeah. My method only works about 10% of the time involuntarily. Zero percent when I actually try.

I find my dreams are usually consisting of a mish mash of totally random stuff. Yesterday I dreamed I was getting married to the old guy that lives next door ( :shock: ) and then a hippogriff flew down and I climbed on it but it flew upside down the entire time. Then I fell off, was falling, and then I did an epic face plant in the family car. And I woke up. :| I've never been able to control what I dream about, but it would definitely come in helpful.

Most people can actually lucid dream, they just don't realize it xD the trick is to remember to try controlling your dream while you're asleep. Uhhh DON'T look into mirrors while you're lucid... scariest nightmare of my life...

Actually ulquiorra, looking into a mirror is one of the most beneficial things you can do in a dream. Looking into a mirror and seeing something drastically different than what you'd normally expect is one of the strongest lucidity triggers out there.

Furthermore, with a little practice, you can look into a mirror while already lucid and use it as a template to transform yourself. I hope to try this as soon as my level of expertise is high enough.

I had a dream a couple of days ago, last Friday if I remember correctly, in which I went to go and see The Hunger Games. I only saw the first part of it, because I needed to leave for some reason, but it was funny to see what my subconscious thought it would be like, even if I had already read the books.

Ikr? I actually attempted this, and it backfired. I looked a bit like a zombie. But, that wasnt the worst part...

Yeh, I'm usually a demon in the mirror. I've heard looking at clocks is weird too, what else should I try when I'm lucid?

You can flip a light switch back and forth. This will usually not affect the lighting of the dream, so they'll often just do nothing.

To add to the current discussion, I think I should add an explanation as to why we see things like this.
When we look in the mirror, we dont see ourselves because our brain has trouble replicating the body. A clock never moves because of the brain. So for not being able to read.
The reason why we use <30% of our brain power when we are awake and 80% of our brain in dreams is because when we are awake, were civilized. Stuff like reading text, clocks, and equations (Yikes!) are not natural. Therefore, the brain recognizes their presence, but not their function.
Thats why. Its because dreaming opens up A LOT of doors.

Hahaha xD no but it's true, your brain will try and connect images it recognizes from the previous day together thats why you dream :) you remember your dreams best when your REM cycle is interupted not that anyone cares
