Explaining it to others...

Since getting an active interest in LD, I have generally kept it pretty much to myself. For something which has had genuine scientific research, and which exists in our very own brains, and which is freely available and potentially very beneficial, I am finding LD rather difficult to explain to peop...

Re: Hello Everyone

I have had some instances in which I had a dream, lucid or not, and then at a later time had something happen in reality that made me think "Oh, now it all makes sense. Thanks for that awesome little insight there God!" which is pretty cool. Now I'm sort of rambling. :roll: :lol: I guess ...

Re: I FOUND the secret (to ld'ing for me)

Hey Jackson, What meditation method were you using? Eg the guided meditation from Rebecca's handbook? The highly aware issue is what I have found too - in that when just getting hypnagogic, that electric/vibration starts, and then I find myself incredibly awake and aware, and not even tired anymore ...

Re: Sup

Hi Gal... Yes welcome to the group! My only suggestion is don't try too hard - especially at night - or you'll do like I did at the start - lie awake for hours getting frustrated! When you do the daily preparation regularly, lucidity will come - sometimes when you least expect! And then try to recal...

Re: Hello fellow dreamers!

Hi Stacey, welcome to the group! Many folks would be envious of your track record - as most of us have to really work at it to get lucid! I think what you'll find here - especially if you read Rebecca's work, (and others) is all the extra, amazing possibilities there are to Lucid Dreaming - so much ...

Re: Hello Everyone

Thanks Von! Yes it definitely was an OBE. And I had another one two nights ago! The funny thing about the one two nights ago was, we had a number of over-nighting house guests, and as I 'left' the bedroom in the dream, I suddenly got a bit nervous in case someone saw me in pajamas! So I deliberately...

Re: How Good is Sub-Con Memory?

Thanks guys, that sounds promising! I did have an early childhood experience that had a profound effect on me, and would love to understand it better. (Not an abuse thing, fortunately.) It could have been a dream, or it may have been a real life experience - that's the thing - I can't remember! So I...

How Good is Sub-Con Memory?

When I was a kid, my Dad used to be a hypnotist. He used to say that everything we did, experienced etc, could be remembered, as our sub-conscious kind of recorded it, I guess. He used this in his hypnotherapy. My question is - just how good is our SC in remembering things accurately from the past, ...

Re: Does Your Sub-Conscience Not Want You To Lucid Dream?

Actually Charlie Morley's comments resonate with me. I don't see them as a right/wrong moral argument at all, but as a statement that does seem to be verifiable by most people's experience. As others have pointed out, our SC (or other factor) does seem to impede lucidity very regularly. Look at how ...

Hello Everyone

Hello from a newbie! Probably like everyone, I have had the odd 'accidental' lucid dream since my teenage years. Now I have had the World of Lucid Dreaming materials for a month or two, I am hoping to gain control of these, with the aim of understanding some deeper spiritual and psychological elemen...
