Nightmares always make me lucid

Postby MCA_der_Negus » 11 Jan 2019 14:50

I don't know when I had the last "normal" nightmare. Since I started with lucid dreaming, my dreams became more lively and I can remember them better. When I have a normal dream, I don't become lucid all the time but when I have a nightmare, 99 % of the time I know that I'm dreaming.

I don't really have control in a nightmare, but they don't scare me because I know that I'm dreaming. Mostly I recognize them even before anything scary happens. The breathing the atmosphere and the overall feeling is very different and mostly the same in every nightmare. I can immediately tell, ok, this is a nightmare and I mostly wake up then. I don't know how to describe it but sometimes it's like that the energy from the nightmare overcomes me and I start to fly or I get like an evil grin on my face? I don't think it's a paranormal thing of course. It's just interesting how different a nightmare can be in a lucid dream. Does someone have a similar experience like me?

I had a nightmare I was being chased by a dragon one time and when I realized I was dreaming a took the dragon for a ride and it washed scary anymore. Once you realize your dreaming try saying I'm dreaming or look at your hand it should make you able to control it.
