Fadem I believe we have quite a few members who are younger than 15 :content: , you may like to read our “how old are you” topic
I hope you both enjoy your time at LD4all.

Hi everyone, I’m new. I’m 15 and live in the USA.

I stumbled onto lucid dreaming through researching an idea of mine for a way to control dreams (I had no previous knowledge of lucid dreams, though I had one when I was younger). I’ve been working on my dream recall for a few days now; however, my recall has always been pretty well. I look forward to lucid dreaming and maybe making a few friends.

Oh, and for anyone interested, my username’s based on one of my favorite Led Zeppelin songs, Kashmir. I’m a huge Zep fan.

can you remember what your first lucid dream was about? we have a big “my first LD” topic in our dream diaries forum, you may like to post the dream there :grin: … there is also one for the very first dream that you can remember, that is an interesting topic too and it can be found in the same forum :content:

I hope you enjoy your time at LD4all and start experiencing lots of great lucid dreams in the near future :happy:

I’ve always loved the occasional times I’ve accidentally dreamt lucidly, but never even thought about the abiliy to induce it until recently.

About four years ago I realized I had a sleeping disorder called “Sleep Paralysis”, where I was paralyzed when I tried to wake up (about 3 times per month). At first it was terrfying, because I didn’t know what was going on, but after I looked it up, I thought of it as no more than a rare annoyance. But a two months ago, I was with my father when he had to go to the hospital for something. He told me it was going to take a while and gave me the option of staying in the car. I did, and since I was tired, I slept.

I woke up about ten minutes later, but was in the paralyzed state. As I had learned to do, I ignored the alarming thoughts and tried to calmly fall asleep again, but it was different this time. I fell asleep consciously, if that makes sense. I was aware while my thoughts were amplified and created a 3d world around me. This was the most amazing thing I had experienced till that point, but it had been beaten several times over in the next 2 1/2 hours as I dreamt 10 induced lucid dreams.

I haven’t been able to it since though :sad:, so that’s why I here.

Welcome to the forum! :welcome:

Very cool! Dunno how much I’d like the sleep paralysis, but at least you’re making the best of it! :smile:

Good luck in the future! :cool:

:wave: welcome to LD4all Aquatico :smile:
A lot of lucid dreamers find that experiencing sleep paralysis is a great aid to getting LDs. Have you read the sticky “Sleep Paralysis and old hag” topic ?The BIG sleep paralysis and old hag topic
You will gather a lot of new information in the various topics at LD4all and will soon be experiencing LDs regularly :thumbs:

If you can remember the contents of your previous LDs you may like to start a dream journal in our dream diary forum so you can keep an online record of them. :content:

good luck with your dreaming :boogie:

Hello everyone! :happy:
I’m so excited that I found this website. Ever since I checked out an ebook of Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming and mastered my techniques I have been searching high and low for other people into lucid dreaming. And it appears as though I found the right place! I hope to make some new friends.

I’m 15 and a once-in-a-while lucid dreamer- not too often, but often enough. Don’t have much control yet, but I’m getting better.

Sooo… hey.

Hey…jk! Welcome chambered_nautilus!

:welcome: hello chambered_nautilus, welcome to LD4all
/me wonders why you chose that name and hopes you post in our Why your user name - part II topic

My name is U.b., am 23 years old and reside in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. Thinking I was having some psychological issues and/or suffering from some illness due to my twitches, shakes, extremely loud “sounds” that would originate from nowhere and feel disconnected from my physical body around bed time :bored: , a friend of mine said the two words that would totally change me. Lucid Dreaming. :cool_laugh: While he described this to me, I literally laughed out loud cause what he said was what I always thought I’d have problems telling others. I also laughed out of relief knowing that this intimidating process which I thought I’d go through before falling asleep for the rest of my life was merely a sign of my potential of inducing LD’s. :cool: I quickly picked up LaBerge’s book on LD and found myself still laughing, yet amazed at what I could possibly do in my dreams. Now I find myself almost obsessed, spending many day time minutes performing RL’s, thinking of what goals to create, and recalling previous dreams, counting down the hours for bed time. :eh:
I am glad to say that my first sucessful WILD was Tuesday morning - July 5th. Although short and not as vivid as I wished it was, I was absolutely delighted to feel and witness such a world. :grin: I have achieved MILD’s before and I’ve even began to try to conquer my fear of heights, by challenging myself (or the dreamworld I guess) by flying and falling, but finding myself in a WILD was such a goal that came with such familiarity to my previous “scary” encounters before knowing of LD’s and sleep paralysis. Hahaha :content:
Anyways, before I make this an essay, thank you to those that have welcomed me already and I hope to continue reading your stories, your suggestions, and soon be able to welcome another newcomer to the site. :smile:


Glad to have ya! Sounds like you’re going to be a good active member! :cool:
