5 Myths of lucid dreaming

Postby William » 15 May 2011 17:21

I agree that there are many myths alone on what happens if you should die in a dream. I keep an online dream journal and one dream I have on there, is not only me dying but crossing to the other side.
At 5 or 6 years old, I began having very vivid dreams. They were very colorful filling all my senses and usually had an intense plot. Years later I became an avid lucid dreamer and worked my way to OBE's. Visit me @ http://expandurmind.com/

Interesting that so many people have commented on this myth - that is you die in a lucid dream, you automatically wake up....

5 Myths About Lucid Dreaming

Seems like this does actually happen to some people but it's not by any means the rule. In fact I can't think of a time it HAS happened to me. Normally the scene just changes and I 'wake up' elsewhere......

What happens if YOU die in a dream (lucid or otherwise)?

If i die, or experience extreme emotion (embarassed or something negative) i usually wake immediatly.
I am an Engineering student, and have yet to experience a lucid dream. Currently on break, I am hoping to try and master the technique as it will give me some peace during the busy school year. Any advice or links are appreciated. Feel free to pm me.

I have died in several dreams and there is always a similar but different outcome.
In one dream an ICBM took out my hometown and I got killed in the blast, everything went white
and I was informed, somehow, that I would return to 45 minutes before the blast and must escape.
Other times I just die and end up in a cliche heaven.
