Changing location?

I’m enjoying success these days with finding the characters I seek in a lucid dream (very helpful when interviewing the characters in my books), but I was wondering if anyone had any tips on changing location? The most effective method I’m using is diving through a window, with the expectation of the new location often making it so - but are there any other strategies that people have used?

Also, I haven’t found much of a LD community on Twitter. Is there a Twitter community I’m missing out on?

Thanks everyone.


this is interesting. that would be something i want to do too
in one lucid dream i was at college, and I left by getting in the elevator

sit on a toilet and pee

An elevator would definitely work. It would give the brain the time to restructure the new surroundings - thanks for the tip, Rebecca!

Spinning, falling backward or going through a window or mirror almost always work.


An elevator wouldn’t work for me; I find that allowing myself to wait for anyone or anything in a lucid dream tends to result in the wait going on way too long and often waking up or losing lucidity before the wait is over. Relinquishing control to a confined space with no visual signs of progress seems like a recipe for failure.

Azaleaj, that’s really interesting - I have never heard of falling backward as a strategy. Will give it a try!

That makes sense, eMander. I have since tried the mirror strategy and it worked a treat!

I’ve had maybe ten LD’s or so, all of which have lasted a few seconds. Then, I had one LD that lasted a while, and then I lost lucidity. It was blurry, but I still had control. I was able to teleport by stepping into the back of a nearby closet, and I was taken to the place I thought of (Walmart. I only chose walmart so I could find DC’s.) Anyways, this technique worked really well. However, summoning a door would probably work better. I eventually want to be able to change things right before my eyes. That, or be able to instantly teleport with a single poof. I also thought about how maybe you could create a fog that fills up everything. Then, make it disappear with the intention of a different environment when it goes away. Just a few ideas. I also was able to fly above the clouds and then when I came back down it was different. Hope this helped!!!


I usually just create a portal or something. Just imagining where I want to go.

Thanks for these suggestions! Stepping into the back of a closet - very Narnia inspired! Though I’m not sure there was a Walmart in Narnia… haha. I’ve never been able to change things right before my eyes, but I think the clouds idea could definitely work!

And when you say a ‘portal’, what does this look like? It sounds as if a door is the most common?

It can be literally anything. It can be just a door, a closet or even a mirror. The function is all the same. I found that for me, summoning a portal is the best for changing locations.

The clouds are definitely more complicated, but would be pretty cool. The closet was dark, so it wasn’t really changing right before my eyes, however it was a weird sensation because there was a back to the closet, and I walked right through it!

tried this once, teleported in a city that looked like a 5 year old drawn it.

It can be like that sometimes for me too. Mostly I tend to stabilize again right after I cross it.

Haha yes that can be so surreal can’t it!

That’s so interesting! I wonder if it was drawing on some younger memories!
