This is Part XXXIX of the big “Hi I’m New Here” topic. The previous part can be found here. All links to previous parts including the “shake hands” topics can be found in this post.
Keeping all the intros in one topic prevents us from having thousands of individual “hello, I’m New” topics and keeps the forum from getting cluttered up. Anyone is welcome to post here , new and old members. So don’t be shy , we don’t bite .
Hello everyone, i’m quite new here but I looked up about lucid dreaming a while back after a friend told me about it, so I wanted to check it out… though I doubt he could even have a lucid dream himself, but that’s besides the point!
The point is, i’m new here… AND i’d just like to get myself settled into these forums as i’ll use them to post any experiences I may have, if any, from attempting to become a Lucid Dreamer.
Hopefully this whole process won’t be too difficult… I tried recording my dreams originally, and stated to myself “I’m going to sleep now, and i’m going to dream, and when I wake up i’ll remember my dream” --I believe that was found on this website somewhere… anyway I only did that for about a week, and now it’s months later. I’m going to start it again tonight, and hopefully i’ll remember when I wake up to record the dream as best as possible.
Let me just state that, for me I doubt i’ve ever had a Lucid Dream… from what I hear a Lucid Dream would feel completely like reality… and when I wake up I generally know I was just dreaming. Typically for me when I am dreaming it’s very difficult to “picture” anything clearly. I hope through this i’ll be able to see things crystal clear as if it were reality, rather than waking only to find I was dreaming in a half-fashion.
My goal for now … my first Lucid Dream!
–I will just add that, when I started this the first time around, which lasted for about a week with no avail… I found myself scared, almost spooked from the idea of waking up in a dream… I guess that’s just part of the thrill of it all. That kind of made me stop the first time around + i’m lazy
