Hello All

Postby Hitch » 18 Aug 2016 01:33

Howdy all. A little about myself; Im a 34 year old Murican male. I have an 18 month old daughter who cant be stopped. Seriously. And we found out last Friday that Hitch #2 is coming to a theater near me in March of 2017. Was in the Army for several years but now I'm working for (Insert random OPSEC Company here)
Dreaming experience(s):
When I was about 8ish, I would lucid dream without knowing that it even had a name. I tried explaining it to my parents but it got brushed to the side as "that's what dreams are bub." It progressed throughout my life and I never told anyone about it because I didn't want people to think I was nuts. I tried the "have you ever been aware that you're dreaming while in the dream" thing to my close friends and they said- of course, negative. And would chalk it up to the movie Inception or some BS. Keep in mind that Id been doing this since before Leo was eating Gilberts grapes. My experiences have become quite lengthy as a result of decades of practicing and I may have some things to talk about or bounce off of some of the forums more advanced folks because I don't want to flip anyone out or scare them away from getting into it. Annnnnyway I continued to practice and figured I wouldn't tell anyone and came up with my own techniques throughout the years that I call:
Check (am I in)- In/Out (going in and knowing without the check and Out is bailing because sometimes shit hits the fan and I cant control it) , Stay (helps prolong when getting pulled out/some people spin etc), Think (wake up and recollect everything in detail and go over it mentally) Setting-Setting (setting the location/environment of insert) The last one has been an incredible experience throughout the years as I've been actively practicing now for about 26 years and I've only recently got it down to about a 75% success rate and it makes me feel like Im teleporting. Obviously I'm not but that's how it feels when I go in. Now I know those terms above are incredibly crude and elementary but I haven't changed my process since I was about 10 and started getting "good." I hope all of that makes sense to at least one of you. I appreciate the site/forum and glad to be here. Thanks much.

Hi, Hitch! 8-)

I've had a similar experience with my parents when I was a lucid dreaming kid. Now I've got kids of my own and I'm better informed to tell them all about lucid dreaming and other worldly matters.

By the way, what did you do in the army? Did you go on any missions? :-)

it was really interesting to read your post. It would be interesting for me to talk to you over Hangouts or Skype. Did you read Carlos Castaneda? It's really a treasure book for all lucid dreamers.
Happy lucid dreaming!

Im wondering if lucid dreaming is hereditary or more easily picked up as a result of genes. I will say that in the even that one of my children do mention it I will absolutely fan that flame. It was a little odd for me to come into it at such a young age and not have any outlet or way to communicate/broaden my understanding.

And absolutely. Ive been to both the middle east (Iraq) and SW Asia (Afghanistan)

I would absolutely be up to any kind of interaction/communication outside the forum. And I have not, in fact heard of Carlos Castaneda but I am a reader and I know what Im doing this evening lol Thanks a ton for that.

It's possible that some genes make some of us prone to lucid dreaming. I guess scientific research is required to answer that question. Did you fight against Saddam Hussein and/or the Taliban?

Indeed, yes. In Iraq at the time it was mainly the Muqtada Militia and in Astan the Taliban.

What were the locals like in Iraq? Were they mostly happy to see you or did they view you as worse than their socialist-Ba'athist dictator?
