Lucid Dreaming Skeptic

Postby skepticdreamer » 25 Dec 2014 04:16

Hi everyone.

I've experienced lucid dreams several times in my lifetime and always considered them to be a welcome fluke. Most of the time, as soon as I reach lucidity, I conjure up something sexual, but I can never retain anything substantial before waking up. But several months ago, I had the most powerful lucid dream I ever experienced. I felt alive in a way that I never felt before. I recognized my lucidity in the dream and afterwards, I was able to forcefully change my surroundings. I was raising mountains and skyscrapers, I felt them rumble and shake. I had a birds eye view of all I was creating and I felt like a God. I woke up sweaty and exhilarated, but I also felt a huge sense of loss.

After that moment, I began looking online and found a rather large community of people who claim to be able to control lucid dreaming to some degree. And that's when I felt two parts of me tear apart.

I felt suspicious, distrustful. I began to see these individuals as liars, making up fantasies that could never be proven. Posting nonsense in the form of a pseudo-science, just an entire community of people making up BS.

But on the other hand, I knew I felt this way because I was afraid it was true. That this ISN'T all fake. The implications would be staggering. I knew that I wanted this so, SO much.

I guess what I'm saying is: I want to know. I want a human to tell me that this is real, that they've been where I am and are now where I want to be, and I want to hear your personal journeys as well. And if this really is all true, I want this to be a part of my life. I'm really excited.

Anyway, thanks.

Welcome to the world of lucid dreaming!

I'm glad you decided to join the forum.

To address your distrust about this topic, I am also sceptical about what people report sometimes since I believed someone that said they did the impossible.

Now I just read what people do and think of the activities as fun things to try for myself. Even if they are impossible it would be a cool thing to try, just don't become obsessed with trying to complete the task and don't do anything dangerous.
