>>17291249 I've done it a few times. Most recently was a couple of years ago. I dreamed I fell asleep on the couch, woke up and something was trying to take me away. I screamed 'fuck you' so loud I woke myself up in the dream.
>>17291275 Very very rarely do I dream/remember my dream. I'm laying in my bed then all of a sudden the alarm clock is going and it's light outside. That's it.. Couldn't even tell you the last time I had a dream. Would keeping a dream journal even be beneficial if I only dream maybe once every 2 months? I know they say you dream every night regardless but I never remember anything when I wake up. 99% percent of the time it's like time just skips forward a few hours
Lol I didn't know this was up for debate. Of course they're real. Let me teach you a few tricks.
1) as you're falling asleep, try to keep consciousness by repeating in your mind "I will lucid dream, I will lucid dream" over and over. Eventually you can feel yourself go into the R.E.M. Stage and you feel your eyes flutter. Weird af.
2) if you're already dreaming (but you don't quite know it), details are weird in dreams. Try looking at text and reading it, usually it's very difficult to read in dreams. Also maybe try looking at your hands, and noticing the wrinkles and creases on them. In my experience, hands are super-wrinkly in your dreams, as your brain is trying to compensate for the lack of detail.
3) as someone mentioned before, try to remember your dreams after you wake up, either by writing them down or committing them to memory. No sense in lucid dreaming of you can't remember any of it
>>17291249 1. record every single dream detail in a journal that you keep next to your bed 2. practice keeping your body motionless and do it before you fall asleep 3. practice breathing 4. make a sigil about lucid dreaming and visualize it before falling asleep 5. sound concentration on a mantra you made about lucid dreaming. (4 and 5 are optional of course) main thing is to keep a journal and don't think about missing a dream or any detail because of lazyness
>>17291660 Wat. Lucid dreams are not real because they are dreams?
And yes op, lucid dreaming is a thing. It just takes mental discipline and a bit of genetic luck I guess. Some find it more natural than others. I am a regular lucid dreamer myself. The dream world is a great sandbox.
>>17292659 How? It's not like I eat toothpaste, in fact I eat incredibly healthy.
I wish I could find a real scientifically proven answer for this instead of the usual assumption that everyone who doesn't share your shitty dreams was only like that because they don't survive on nothing but Spirit Juice™ and a single stick of homegrown celery per day or whatever you hippies think makes you superior to everyone else.
>>17292820 >>17292828 Because it's just as bad as when people say "literally" for stuff that they don't mean literally, i.e. figuratively. It's a dumbass meme for dumbass adolescents, and it never was funny
been writing a dream journal for a couple years, some entries are pretty bizzard to read, sometimes there's too much detail, sometimes too little, sometimes a dream is kinda shitty I don't even want to record it.
That said, occasionally when I have a nightmare or bad dreams in general I can just end it with a sheer force of will or go "fuck y'all I'm dreaming time to explore"
>>17293228 and I don't do any of the consciously telling yourself to lucid dream or practice this repeat that or anything. For fuck's sake that one time you get to completely relax I ain't doing no mental workout.
