Hi all. Quite obviously, i am new here.
However i am not so new to the concept of Lucid Dreaming. Lucid dreaming helped me over-come a reccuring nightmare as a young child (3 years old). I would run for my parents room and a hand would swiftly snatch my shirt and pull me back into my room where the nightmare would begin. I recognized that the hand pulling me back in meant that i was about to experience a nightmare and i would also realize that it was under my control. I killed the hand and it dropped to the floor, ran to my parents room and exited my dream into sleep. In the 12 years that have passed since then i never had one of those reccuring nightmares again, and rarely had any at all.
I have had a few Lucid dreams since then, one was in maths class when i realized i didn’t have maths that day, and proceeded to shoot my outrageously terrible maths teacher with a fireball, and run out of class to cause havoc around my school.
I got back into Lucid dreaming about 6 months or so ago, but have not really done anything about it until recently when i found this site. After reading all about the techniques I started writing down my dreams a few nights ago and i have averaged remembering about 2-3 a night.
Nothing besides music has excited me as much as LD’ing and i hope to become a master of them some day.
And kudos to all the people at the forum. I’ve read through them and found you all to be an excellent bunch of people. Look forward to finding out about you all.
By the way, thanks for reading the long post
