Question about the phrase "getting excited"

Postby gekada_75 » 23 Aug 2012 05:15

People here says that when you know you're dreaming don't get excited or you will awake, so if I calm myself down and intensify my dream and do exciting things like parcour ,will it wake me up?

Beginners sometimes when they ld will get so excited that they forget to stabilize the dream and they wake up in a couple of seconds. Whenever you ld you should really ground yourself in the dream first. Then you can go off and do all the exciting things you want.

One of my favorite things to do while lucid dreaming is paragliding. I do it in real life and I do it all the time when I'm dreaming. It has never woken me up.

The thing that WILL wake you up if huge emotional excitement. Like running around yelling that you are dreaming.

I would just try parcour and see what happens.

No that's not true. Once you stabilize the dream you can do anything. You can even die in a lucid dream and not wake up. I haven't done it but I've read others peoples experience. It's all about immersing yourself in the dream. Use all five senses. They'll be much longer and vivid that way.

Gekada, I think what people are trying to say is this:

When you first realize you are lucid, stay calm. Notice the smells and sounds around you. Allow the dream come to life.

Then, when you feel like the dream is stable and settled, go and have fun! Do whatever exciting thing you want. :)

yes, also there is a small difference between being excited in the dream and getting emotional about the excitement. You will get the hang of it
