Did I LD and how to control better?

Postby GoldenJc » 24 Aug 2015 21:39

Hello everyone. I started trying Lucid Dreaming back in April but sadly got away of it. Recently I have been confused. I was sleeping and I slowly woke up by myself till I could think normally. I kept thinking "this is a dream, go lucid", but nothing happened. I guess I was too awake or something? And just yesterday I had a more weird experience. I was sleeping fully. I was walking by a pool and some of my friends were nearby. They sat near a table by the pool, and I was walking around. I don't remember how, but I just thought to myself "this is a dream", but again nothing really happened. I just slept away I guess.
And for the control related question, I feel like when I dream I don't have any control over my mind. I feel like I can't control nor think when I dream. Lucid dreaming is something that I want to try more than ever. I want to talk to my dead grandfather, fly across the earth and run on open fields. I really want to avoid WILD method or something that can cause Sleep paralysis since I've had it, and it traumatized me lol. I just want to be able to go to bed like usual and feel like I have more control of my dreams.

this is what happens me, I'm dreaming and then spontaneously become lucid, but when i wake up i realise I've done loads of really dumb stuff, which makes me think maybe i wasn't lucid after all.

One can still exhibit irrational thinking in lucid dreams. In other words, you can still be mistaken in your logic despite knowing that what surrounds you is a dream. Check out this link to understand why:


But I would append that the sharpest degrees of lucidity have the least propensity for 'bizarre thinking'.
