Hello everyone, I'm Phate. And I'm just obsessed with lucid dreaming.

It all started when I was a kid, about 5 - 6 years old I believe, I had these terrible nightmares, all recurring. I can still partially tell how those dreams went, but that's for some other time. (let's face it, scary isn't the same to a 6 year old as it is to a 22 year old).

After a couple of years, I started to realise that I was dreaming, but that didn't take the fear away. A little while longer I was capable of waking myself up when I was in one of these nightmares (I just pulled my eyes open very wide in my dream, and slowly my eyes would open in reality). So I take it those were the first signs of lucidity. Even a couple of years later, I had full control over the dream, the dream no longer had control over me. I started enjoying my nightmares. I was the hero in them in the end afterall.

As the years passed, the nightmares/dreams, unfortunately, went away. My lucidity wasn't on a daily/weekly basis anymore, more on a monthly scale. I talked about my experiences with friends, but there was nobody that actually believed that I could control a dream. So I kind of accepted it as some kind of extra I got, untill a couple of years back, I heard the term lucidity. It all sounded so familiar, and I was just happy that I wasn't alone. I wanted that feeling back, I wanted to be able to do what I wanted to do again. Fly, fall, ...

So I got into it. I can't really say I have lucid dreams very often anymore (once a week or so), but when I do, I enjoy it (untill recently - you'll read more about that later). So now I'm here, with the hope that some of my questions can be answered, and some of my experiences explained.

I look forward to reading your experiences and tips!

Glad to have you here, Phate. One lucid dream a week is actually pretty good, I think.
