Ah man, I used to dedicate my life to this stuff. Kept a detailed dream journal for months on end, obsessing over the next time I would be able to fall asleep. Sleeping was what kept me alive. Being able to bend peoples will in dreams, teleport, fly, jump super high, all of that. It was amazing.
I keep trying to work on my dream recall but it's so hard because my body just doesn't want to do it and a lot of dreams are just of no emotional resonance so you're just thinking "why the fuck am I even writing this down?"
>>26008415 Thing will be weird and I'll look at my hands for a reality check, or things will be so weird that I'll just know it's a dream. I have to rub my hands against the wall or ground as I walk to stay grounded, or else I may wake up. Sexing in the dream isn't possible because I wake up.
I don't have faith in my flying ability, and landing involves crashing. Our power is unlimited in a dream, but I guess my lack of confidence can makes things difficult. My subconscious makes things happen, but I'm generally surprised when things turn out okay despite my daily negative thought patterns.
I usually end up grabbing a girl to fuck. But it's a waste of a lucid dream because I'll wake up. I remember a security guard came to stop me, and I had to thrust my hands at her repeatedly saying "Die! Die! Die!" to get her to die.
my power was infinite but proportional to my own confidence in my self shit was happening and i was warping reality the only part i really remember is the nukes were falling and i couldnt stop them but then i tried really hard and barely made this nuke disappear right before it hit with a wave of my arm from left to right, and then my confidence grew and i just warped the entire reality and got rid of all the nukes and the entire dream changed after wards and i dont remember the rest
>>26008656 Sleep Paralysis is the most terrifying thing I have every experienced. I've had it a dozen times and if you realize that you cant move the best thing to do is close your eyes until you regain movement in your limbs. DO NOT keep your eyes open. DO NOT look around the room.
>>26008656 I've been lucid dreaming since I was four years old and I have NEVER had sleep paralysis as a result. I've gotten it a handful of times on its own but since you know it's sleep paralysis it is extremely easy to control and manipulate the hallucinations.
I only had sleep paralysis once and it was 4 years before I got into lucid dreaming, I immediately knew it was not real and what was happening because I had read about it online and just did not focus on the scary figments and tried my hardest to sit up
I remember there being some TV show playing about a jewish girl coming to terms with the holocaust, probably the ghosts of jews trying to get me

Does this mean: a) you don't realize you can just keep fucking the girl and ignore the guard because it's a lucid dream b) you subconsciously believe that a GUARD will come stop you if you try and fuck a girl Jesus
>>26008656 From what I've read, fear and panic have the same effects during dreams and sleep paralysis. If you're afraid, then your subconscious will conjure up spooky shit to scare you. For instance, anon above may have been scared during his fucking the girl, and so his subconscious summoned up a spooky guard to come get him. If you just relax, the sleep paralysis will eventually fade, or you will be able to fall asleep and enter a lucid dream.
Literally nothing to fear but fear itself in regards to sleep paralysis.
>>26008415 >dream starts at the entrance to a carnival >everything is way too creepy and fucked up >crazy realistic looking clown faces blown out of proportions, fucked up looking attractions, unsettling noises coming from various circus tents >everything is so ridiculous that i eventually think wow this has to be a dream >immediately everything disappears and i am on some salt flats in the middle of no where >begin conjuring massive thunderclouds and swirling them about >make lightening strike at will wherever i choose >fly around for a little bit >eventually wake up I had another one, but it was weird. It was a lucid dream but with this knight-esque companion.
Why can't I lucid dream? I've tried plenty of times and tried methods that are supposed to be guaranteed, but fucking nothing. Then I read about normie chads flying around and I get mad I can't do that. I just want to fuck Alizee someone please help me
>>26008933 I tried to lucid dream using methods and it never worked, but I do lucid dream naturally pretty often. Thinking about your dream first thing when you wake up is the only useful tip I found. It really helps.
Besides that, sleeping well helps. I usually lucid dream when I go to sleep really late and sleep for around 12 hours.
I've had sleep paralysis multiple times, and every time I always kept my eyes open. Only once had I ever seen anything and it was borderline supernatural, maybe I should post it on /x/. >on vacation in tokyo, have cush highrise hotel not far from the station >wake up, its light outside but my curtains are drawn >i can see that its about 9am, the alarm clock is near me >notice i cant move and get this bad chill from my right side >see a figure approaching from the doorway >no shit looks like that creepy chick from the ring, but with glowing red eyes >slowly approaches me >lets out the most terrifying screech, worse than any animal or tire I've heard in my life >pounces on me and begins choking the life out of me, all the while snarling and screaming >my breaths are few and painful and make this disgusting gurgling sound >begin willing my right arm to move as to try to defend myself >its pretty painful, and the right side of my body starts twitching/convulsing >eventually fling my arm up and when it would have hit her she fades away like smoke For the next few days my neck and right arm were in some pretty bad pain. I was pretty terrified to be in the room alone after that. Luckily I had a roommate, he was just out for that night. Swear to god I have ptsd from that shit, bitch probably stole part of my soul.
But how close to reality is a lucid dream? Is it very close or is it simply the case that you're not aware enough to notice all the little errors? Can you feel wind brush your skin, can you smell a rose, can you feel the sun warm you up? I've literally never had a lucid dream so I need to know.
>>26009201 When I lucid dream it's like reading a book or watching a movie. You always know that it's fiction, but it can be very immersive. I tend not to notice details like wind or smells unless I am focusing on them.
The way I experience it it can be very immersive the more I focus, if I don't really interact with the world then it's just audio and visual, but if I take the time to run my hands along the ground I'll start feeling textures, if I take the time to concentrate on eating something my brain will start simulating tastes.
So it's pretty much 100% accurate at simulating sensations, but it still runs on "dream logic", so you will still turn a corner and go from being in your bedroom to being in an airport, and you will still try and read a news paper and find it's gibberish, so its not completely realistic, if someone was watching a livestream of your dream they woudn't be fooled for very long that it was real life.
>>26008562 You can also go full inception mode and carry a token with you at all times. Check your pants a couple of times each day until you do it unconsciously. The next time you are in a dream and it isn't there, you will realize it.
I'm a bit afraid what happens if I ever forget to take it with me IRL to be honest
