Re: Forgetting Dreams with an Alarm Clock

Thank you for that information! How can you accurately predict when your REM cycle is complete?

Also, what if it is not possible to reset your alarm clock (due to a job or school or whatever)

Forgetting Dreams with an Alarm Clock

I've noticed that when an alarm clock 'sharply' wakes me up and gets my out of bed, I often instantly forget my dreams. However, if I naturally wake up (on weekends, etc) without an alarm clock, I can easily remember everything! Is there a trick to remembering dreams knowing there will be an alarm c...

Re: Impossible Escape?

Ok, I just had a similar dream. There were two teams and there were guns involved, I think from a video game. These type of dreams are not common for me, but they happen every so often and I would like to conquer them. Its very difficult when you feel that your life is in danger. Any thoughts on rea...

Re: Impossible Escape?

Thanks for the quick response! I think that is very interesting. But the weird thing is that I recognized that I was in a dream, but was not able to become lucid for some reason.

Impossible Escape?

I had a dream last night where a character came up to me and told me "This must be a dream." Consciously recognizing the setting as a common dream setting (and real life setting), I tried MANY RC's. I pushed my fingers into my palm - nothing. I pinched my nose shut - nothing. I looked at m...

What to do in a LD / how to remember what to do

Let me preface this by saying that I have successfully lucid dreamed before. Last night I had a dream that I was in my room, looking at my hands. I did the hand RC and it failed, but I still felt weird for some reason, so I did the pinch-the-nose method, and it worked! I looked around and saw no way...

Living in 3 realities at once?

I experience something pretty awesome this morning. Usually, whenever I am recalling a dream to write in my DJ, I try to reenact the dream in my head and project the 'screen shots' and feelings of the dream. This morning, I guess I must have had a FA, because I 'woke up' and began writing about a dr...

Re: Becoming Lucid in Dangerous Situations

I will try to do that! Although understand that this is more difficult that my other dreams, as the fight or flight instinct may come in!


Leads me to another question.... Do we (humans) have the same genetic instincts in dreams?

Re: Becoming Lucid in Dangerous Situations

Haha, that's the interesting thing. I do not usually enact in life threatening situations in RL, nor in videogames!

Becoming Lucid in Dangerous Situations

Many of my dreams (that I remember, of course) are of me in very tense situations - life threatening situations. For various reasons, in the real waking life, I would not commit to a RC in such a threatening situation. (Example - some one is pointing a gun at my head and I am trying to get away, I w...
