I wanna try this but I don't really want to have any of the side effects you mentioned.

Anyone had any of them?


I followed wongtong's instructions and halfway through my arms/legs started twitching and shaking.

To wongtong or anyone else who has done this successfully, what am I supposed to think about when I'm laying down still ?

OH! is that why I itch so badly when I'm trying to sleep? WOW. I never knew lol. I've have these lucid dreams quite often, as in I know I'm dreaming, but I don't usually have control of what I do.


I think that's regular dreaming. I only think though.

No, I'm pretty sure being aware that you're dreaming is lucid dreaming - just not to the same 'stage' as being able to control your dreams. I can't find the page where I read this right now but there are different stages of lucid dreaming, i.e just being aware but not having control > being aware and having control > complete control

Adrenal, anything I guess? I like repeating to myself in my head that I'm dreaming though. Or you can think stuff like "I'm going to have a lucid dream" to help force yourself to have one :D

I wanna try this, but I'm scared that I'll do something wrong and just never wake up. I'm also afraid I'll think I'm dreaming, and do something stupid, only to find out that it wasn't a dream.

I'm actually excited to go to sleep tonight to try this out again. :lol: Even if it didn't work last night, it still was an interesting experience.

Remember, if you freak out you can just hold your breath and it'll be over. You don't have to force yourself to do it with the method in the first post, there are other ways. (Which take more practise) Be sure to post how it went tomorrow :) Have a nice dream :P

Is this really a worthwhile topic, even if it's posted in Off-Topic?

I think it is. We could post our experiences and what we dreamt about. We could post about any new kinds of symptoms we get while trying to induce lucid dreaming.

I'm going to bed in about in hour. Should be fun if I can make it past the "Are you asleep" stage.

I'm going to attempt this. I don't think I could stand lying still for more than five minutes but I'll try my best.

Been trying (unsuccessfully) for a while now. Tried earlier today and it felt entirely different to the past times I tried - I think I got incredibly close to drifting off. I truly felt as if I were transcending into a completely different plane of consciousness and I was fully aware that I was doing it; it was pretty amazing in my opinion.

Will give it another try later and see if I can finally pull it off.

If what everyone is saying is true...sounds like a free, healthy way to get high...and while you're asleep too! Sounds pretty awesome, and makes me look forward to going to bed.

I don't really think it's like being high. Try it and see for yourself though, the experience varies a lot between people.

I have found another 'method' to lucid dream. I haven't tested this myself but here goes:

Lie on your back with arms on pillow above head until sleepy.
Get into your usual position.
This signals to your brain 'sleep time'
Keep telling yourself you are about to have a lucid dream and visualise walking up/down steps to the dream world.

Ignore any itches or urges to move.
You will soon see either visual disturbances (patterns) or the steps become much more vivid. Sounds are good signs.

Eventually you may feel high but not always.

You will see a scene form. The steps lead into it.
Jump into the scene.

Done


Someone else tested this method and said:

Anyways, I waited until about 5 am to do this, to make sure I was extremely tired.

I used the method described in this picture. After about 20 minutes, I began to see flashing lights, and the lights eventually started forming patterns.

As I was imagining going up the stairs, I began to feel like I was being pulled through the sky, extremely fast, as if I was on a roller coaster. my left eye started twitching, and for a split second, I saw a field at the top of the stairs.

After this, however, I began to get excited about it finally happening, and it all reverted back to the point of just bits of flashing light. I wasn't sure if I was in the lucid dream or not, so I opened my eyes and looked around. Saw nothing. I wasn't sure whether or not I was actually in it, so I stood up, turned on my light,and looked at my fingers.

Sadly, It was RL. Lame ending, I know /:


Another random helpful quote:

I actually have done it before. It takes about 20 mins of just lying there to get the feeling of weight on your chest but once you get that far then you start to see things. I didn't have that much control per say but concentrating hard on things helps. The having flash backs from long forgotten events in your life is a norm also.

I don't have a lot of time right now, so I'll keep it short and might elaborate some other time. I think I got into REM sleep, but I'm not sure if I was really completely paralyzed.

I did feel like there was a box or something on my chest, but when I tried to move my thumb, it worked. Now, this REM sleep, thing, my eyes started moving around violently (to the point they started tearing) but that's all that happened. What am I supposed to do then? Just keep on sleeping? I didn't dream and when I opened my eyes I wasn't hallucinating or anything. I tried to imagine myself into a dream but that didn't work.

You body should feel stiff, like you can't move, and you should start hallucinating, at which point you can close your eyes and start Lucid Dreaming.

So last night as I was doing the first method the OP had posted, I could not stay still. I tried so many times. But I could not stay still for the life of me. I didnt reach any stage of lucid dreaming, so yeah. I am going to try this again later tonight in hopes of a better result.

I tried this last night. I think I did it wrong... I was just laying there and then I woke up :/ My eyes didn't go crazy or anything and I didn't feel a weight on my chest or whatever... I didn't really have any urge to move around and I wasn't itching... at all... I'm pretty sure I was staying perfectly still. I just fell asleep, I think >.> Halp?

It happened again :wall: I tried telling myself that I was going to lucid dream, but that didn't do anything :/ I just fell asleep again without knowing it >.> Am I just not able to do it? :/ I guess I'll try one of teh other methods tonight >.>

I tried it last night but it didn't work for me. I got to the eye movement and hearing sounds part early on but then it just stopped. I lied still for a few more minutes with nothing else happening and I just fell asleep without trying. My big toe twitched twice but I don't think that was enough to cancel the entire thing.
