lucidity inheritable

Postby dreamflyer » 23 Nov 2013 22:39

Hi Daniel and Rebecca! My first lucid dream experience that i can remember was, when I was about 4 to 5 years old. I can still remember my dream. It was de first time I could choose to fly in my dream. Ever since I've had a lot of lucid dreams. First I couldn't control them. I was just "aware" that I was dreaming. My nightmares were terrible, and every time I tried so hard to wake up. When I was about 8 years old I learned more and more to control my dreams :) I'm 19 years old now, and I'm studying psychology. My question is: Is the capability to have lucid dreams inheritable? And how is it possible that some people can do it so easy and others try so hard without a lot of success?
Thanks for your time :)

Why must your mind manifest scary images during REM Atonia? Why don't you see a little girl playing with a skipping rope, instead of demonic figures?

I have Aspergers and dream and LD fine.

If anything if one has Aspergers and LD ends up being a real want, as Aspergers people can obsess about their special interests, having Aspergers could in fact by helpful as one will then be thinking about it much of the time.

Note with my Aspergers Im unable to fantasize at all in my head.. but that dont affect me from doing stuff like WILD.

Like 95% of the time when I'm dreaming it's like a lucid dream, I know its a dream and blah blah whatever. I can control what I'm doing and nothing else. But when I have my dreams I can actually feel them and they're so real that I doubt myself a lot both in dreams and reality, I'm constantly questioning "Am I dreaming or is this real?" And the dreams will give me real physical pain!? Once, a few years ago, a had a dream that I had fallen off of a very tall building and as soon as I hit the bottom I was screaming bloody murder because every single piece of my body hurt like I'd just been crushed. It hurt so bad that I couldn't move, I vomited on myself twice and I stayed out of school for two days because the pain was so bad that if I tried to move I would pass out and a lot of my limbs wouldn't move at all no matter how hard I tried. Another time, I had a dream that I was walking through the woods and a man grabbed me and he bit down on my neck really hard and when I woke up the spot where he had bitten me ached like in the actual shape of a bite mark. These dreams are very VERY scary and they're so real it's unbelievable. I can feel, touch, hear, see and smell everything that's going on and it's so bad that I can't even tell the difference any more. Just now, about 40 minutes ago, I think I woke up from what I'm assuming can only be a dream. But it was so real that I think it might have actually been real, like I really do. I was laying in bed and I heard rustling on the other side of the bed and I ignored it thinking it was probably my laptop charger sliding off the edge of the bed or something but then I heard a really low and dark and kind of like, raspy laugh right next to my ear and I freeze up. At this point I'm terrified and I'm closing my eyes really tight thinking to myself "oh god please let this not be real please don't let this happen go away go away go away" and after about a minute of doing that I loosen up a little because I think he's gone but then I feel hot, wet breathing on my neck and I tense up again and then it wraps it's arm around me and it's holding me really tight. His skin is warm and damp like he's sweating and he's so bony and disgusting and I could smell his breath and it smelled like rotten meat and i could feel him breathing and it made me so sick to my stomach that I threw up in my mouth multiple times. He's so close to me I can feel his chest rise and his sweat is making my shirt damp, I'm so scared I start screaming and I know that I'm really real life screaming because I can feel it coming out of my throat and I know I'm wide awake I'm screaming for my mom to please help me please come help me but she doesn't come because she's sleeping so I laid there crying for a good 20 minutes while this skinny sweaty dead smelling disgusting thing holds me close to him and breathes down my neck and I'm crying so loud and the only reason it stopped was because my dog opened my door and I guess it "woke me up" but I have wet spots on my shirt where his chest and arms were pressing against me and my throat is sore from screaming and my eyes are puffy from crying. I want to believe it's a dream but I'm scared it might not be? I know it sounds stupid but it's so real. All of my dreams are like this, why? Please can someone help me, I've been wondering this for years and no one can give me an answer, it's awful and it keeps me from doing things I need help! Please, please help me! These are scary and painful and everyone else blows me off like what I'm saying is a joke! :cry:


Hi, I was reading your post in the help section to Rebecca. Ive no idea how she will respond to your post (she may be left not knowing how to respond to it as your questions are hard for most) , I hope you or rebecca dont mind me responding.

Sounds like you may be energy aware and hence your issues with dream things even after you wake up. Still feeling where you were hurt in the dream etc

The following is what many and many schools of thought know and believe.

We are rather complex beings, our bodies consist of various bodies
- physical
- etheric (which is like a copy of our physical body but its in its energy form)
- astral (formless, which people use in OBE and shape it with their beliefs)
- mental body (which we use when dreaming etc, it carries all the energy of our thoughts and thought forms)
- the soul body
etc

Our various energy bodies interact with one another in combination.. thou very rare it is even possible to get something called repercussion happen (damage to the physical body from a dream or thought. A famous kind of this is stigmata where people manifest the wounds of christ. Others may actually manifest bites and markings from their dreams ..be it from things in their dreams or just from their own thoughts onto thier physical skin and body.. I once had my arm marked and swell for almost a week from being cut by a sword in my dream/astral. These things are not unusual among psychics and occultists.

When you dream, one can get damage to other bodies as what goes on in any of these bodies can affect your other bodies but usually people as they arent energy aware, usually cant feel this going on and hence arent aware of it. Psychics and energy aware people often are thou as they feel it and may even see it. They arent looney but experiencing a different reality to most.

I think that is what may be happening there with you and also causing you the confusion of what is real and what isnt. Living in a reality which isnt purely physical, can be quite confusing esp if you are young like I suppose you are.

You can use your own thoughts to help heal yourself from your energy injuries and to fix the damage being done to your own auric energy bodies (layers). You can also use the energy of your own thoughts etc, to help keep these things away from you whether they are your own thought beings (things of energy created by your own thoughts) or other things.

You may be feeling vulerable and a victim to all this, but you do not need to be. We are all more powerful then we realise. The ability to feel things is a gift.

It hurt so bad that I couldn't move, I vomited on myself twice and I stayed out of school for two days because the pain was so bad that if I tried to move I would pass out and a lot of my limbs wouldn't move at all no matter how hard I tried


Next time something like that happens, pray to whatever you believe in to protect you and then get yourself a good healer who can feel and work with energy (make sure you feel good about the person before allowing them to work on your energy field.. if you dont, dont allow them too as there are some not good people around too). Many people out there if you look in the right places can fix things like this and hence you do not need to be taking days off school due to it once you find someone who can help. (sorry the sites I used to know with good ones...shamans, lightworkers, energy healers, psychics to fix things like this arent around nowdays).

If you cant find anyone, you can try to send me a pm and I'll try to work with you to help yourself but be aware Im very busy and hence not always around this site, often away for long periods. (I'd prefer if you find a good healer to be able to work with you and teach you how to help yourself, sounds like you are really needing it).

best wishes to you.

Hi everyone

Issue #1 (December 2013) of Ask The Experts is now available online!
http://www.world-of-lucid-dreaming.com/ask-the-experts-december-2013.html

Our answers started becoming quite in-depth, so we only covered 4 questions in the first issue. I think that's actually turned out for the best, though, because it means we can really get to the meat of the issue.

We'll keep running this feature every month. So while we do already have questions lined up for January 2014 (and February in fact), feel free to keep posting them here and we'll address them in turn. The sooner you post your question, the better.

Thanks for your contributions and making this feature possible!

I have seen a comment earlier that the brain cannot come up with something new during dreaming. That is simply not true, I had lots of dreams of things I never saw before in my life, ever.

A more scientific proof is of August Kekulé ouroboros dream in 1862 from which he created the benzene structure. A very simple dream of a snake grabbing its own tale, combine with his scientific knowledge making a breakthrough of significant scientific value. And that was just daydreaming.

Are there known techniques to tap into the dream world as an source of inspiration? To art, problem solving, etc.?

Fear is the doorway through which scary things pass, whether they be "demons" or any other frightening thing. Fear is what manifests such entities. My experience has been that if you want to overcome demons and any other kind of perceived darkness, first overcome your fears and they will be gone.

Generally, people who experience SP (although the experience is rare) will often have a lot of fear because they don't know what's happening to them. Fear is a cycle, you manifest what you are afraid of, it's frightens you, which reinforces it, etc.
