The BIG "Hi, I'm new here" topic part 76

Hi all!
I joined back in 2011 and this year I’m getting back into LD’ing. I always found that some active involvement on the LD forums helps me get lucid more often (plus there’s too few people IRL who are interested in chatting about it), so let’s see if I can get back in the groove :smiley:

Hello everyone!

I’ve been (attempting) lucid dreaming on and off for ten years or so, and the recent Reddit AMA led me to this community. I felt compelled to give it another go after going through a lot of disappointment in the past and having the chance to talk to others with similar goals seems like a good enough reason to join and say hi. Don’t have much else to add or say about myself, but hopefully I’ll be sticking around and you’ll see more of me on the forums. :wink:

welcome to the forum aevi
just dive into the topics and it will give you motivation. :slight_smile:

Welcome to LD4all @aevi :wave:

What’s your history for lucid dreaming? What kind of experiences have you made so far and even more important: What kind of experiences are you looking forward to making?

I totally agree with you that talking with other people about it is a great way to engage deeper in the topic and it’s an easy way to boost your chance and motivation :woot:

I’m Johnny.

I have always been fascinated with dreams and have had some absolutely ludicrous dreams in my lifetime. Its usually a collection of things I can piece together after a really long week. Unfortunately, I only seem to dream (or rather, remember dreams) after a particularly exhausting week where I’m exceptionally tired. Once I realize the lunacy of what’s happening, I wake up before gaining any kind of control.

I want to change that. I want explore the possibilities of where my brain can take me and figure out this lucid dreaming thing. I imagine its different than my mind makes it seem, but I’d like to know more…so here I am digging in and reading up on things…

I’m terrible at ending these things, so I’ll point that out and just stop typing any more of


Hello Johnny, welcome to the forum :wave:
Enjoy exploring the topics and joining discussions.

My name is Void (not my real one of course)
I recently joined ld4all because I wanted to talk to people who share the same interest towards LDs, and I found the people in this forum very kind, so I wanted to participate.
I didn’t have a lot of LDs, but still, just thinking about it fascinates me. These are the reasons I joined the community, i’m sure I won’t regret it :smile:

Welcome to the forums, @OnlyVoid :wave:

Keeping a dream journal is a reliable method to help with any kind of dreaming activity. We also have a section here where you can post journal entries for others to read about them and learn of your adventures :slight_smile:

Hello, I’m just going to go by my screenname L0yalKn1ght. I’ve been to this site before under a different username way back in 2007, but would rather keep that in the past. I am interested in lucid dreams and hope to be motivated by this site and the people here. Hope to make some friends here too. :slight_smile:

‘Welcome back’ now I’m wondering would I remember your old username. I shouldn’t be so curious. :tongue:
Hope you enjoy your time here.

Good morning, my Name is Fede i m from south america, and from years something strange have happening i m not sure if it can be qualified as Lucid Dream… or just part of the dream secuence…

On certain occasions I have the power to decide to wake up for real at will within dreams … added to frequent sleep paralysis which does not scare me because I know how to break , I am deprived of all senses when paralysis happen (there are no hallucinations) … it does not seem that I have the power to reform the dream at will i just can decide to wake up when I want to, does this mean that it is a lucid dream? … I have also had the strangest dream of my life which I remember it well … in which I mix several powers if it can be called that way from repeating reality … false awakening and … deciding to wake up ( i think this one was more than a dream… some sort of spiritual thing)

Also i m not complety sure If I M choosing to wake up… or just dreaming about it… same with some powers… inside dreams what i m 100% sure is that in more than 30 dreams from differents kinds since i was a kid if in the dream i decide to wake up… IT HAppen for real…

NOTE: in dreams i seems to be aware of this wake up Ability to scape any situation i want… ( tough, i cant be sure if this is part of a subsconcius decision (part of the dream) or a Concient Lucid decision

Note 2: Not on every dream i decide to wake Up… it happen randomly

Anyway , Thanks for the Attention!

welcome to the forum.

The definition of lucidity is being AWARE that you are dreaming while in the dream. So you have to remember what you were thinking and feeling at the time. If you decide you were aware, you can begin to work on making the dream more lucid instead of waking up.

I do remember those dreams… but i had no control… what we have here is something weird… i m pretty sure My Wake up decision IS part of the dream secuence… that doesnt change the fact IT does wake me up for real… and it happens in dif scenarios… somes very dark…

Fun Note: When i do decide wake up i do it in the same way like Jeanni on " i dream.of Jennie" Grants a wish… i just blink hard and then i wake up for real… this as goes as far as dream solely of an item i want to purchase… grab it on my dream trow trough my window… then wake up for real… 2 check if is there ( of course it was not, since dream items cannot cross the barrier to the real world haha )

Hey all! First time here.

So, my name is Almo and it’s probably the second time in my life I sign into a forum (last time was probably 6 years ago). I’m your local french dramatic shapeshifter dude who loves drawing and writing cute, poetic, action and drama stories.

I’ve learn about lucid dream about 3 years ago, but I really wanted to partice it about one year ago, the subject fascinated me, but I never was a big dreamer, I almost never remembered my dreams, so I decided to practice some techniques and eventually, tried to become lucid.

There is many reason I want to become lucid.
First, I want to communicate with my subconscious, I heard it can be very therapeutic and I want to help myself change some bit of my personality I find imperfect.
Second, I want to become the character I create. I create a lot of OCs with some kind of powers that are really close to me, I could even say they are me. I incorporate them into stories I write, but I think that my vision of them is “incomplete” because I don’t know what I feel when using the powers my OCs have (which is normal, because it’s real life dammit). And I feel like I must really put myself in their place to really know what they can feel like when I put them in different situation. Also, I just want to have fun with my powers, so why not?
And thirdly, I just want to let my imagination run wild with environments and situations. I’ve heard that lucid dream can boost your imagination and I totally want to do that, explore environment or species I’ve never thougt they existed, travel through a lot of locations with my (imaginary) friends. And then, when I wake up, get something out of it, new sights to exploit and have a story to tell to my (irl) friends.

The thing is (and this is the reason why I signed in on this forum) while I improved my ability to dream, and now I can remember the dream I do every evening (even if I must order my brain to do it every time before I sleep), I didn’t made a lot of lucid dreams… Like at all?
I’ve started to train for it about 1 year ago, and I manage to get only 5 LDs since then. I mean, it’s better than nothing I guess, but it never lasted long, or has never been very vivid every times. I trained all the way this summer (from June to right now) and I never had one. I will just try to talk more about it in other discussions, but it’s just to give general about my skills. You guessed it, I’m not really good and I’m feeling desperate :slight_smile:

I hope being on this forum will help me improve myself in this domain. Thank you for reading me and pardon me if my english is bad, as I sait earlier, I’m french ^^’

Welcome to ld4all, @Almo :wave:

Just talking about it will increase your chances, there are many anecdotes about that for sure. If you feel the level of detail was not so good in your previous lucid dreams, how do you feel about the details of your normal dreams? Practicing better awareness in waking life my help your brain to home in on the details more.

Thanks, you two for your quick answer! I’ll look forward to your advice.

Hi there. I’ve been reading several posts since I activated my old account. It feels as though I’m walking slowly through an old familiar road or hallway while happily reminiscing. It certainly feels good to be in a community of people who appreciate their dreams as much as I do mine (including the nightmares).
