Do you get easily distracted in lucid dreams? Because I often do. Yesterday for example I realized in the middle of the dream that I was dreaming, so of course I wanted to control my dream and do something cool, but then I heard a strange whispering voice in the next room. It was quite creepy, but the worst was that I got so distracted by it that I forgot I was dreaming! Have you ever had similar problems? What about your dreams and experiences? I would love to hear about them!

It seems I have had quite the....vivid dream last night...unlike most I remember having before...it was like that of a movie...with an odd plot centered around the actions...the vivid dream...was about what looked to be American soldiers, WW2 styled tank crewman uniforms, debating what they should say in a trial of sorts...or a debate...while they speak inside a castle of sorts...I think I may know why that part happened sonce we had just watched a movie about a trial...but to See More▼

I might have directed which cog to throw...but some other...very odd events happened involving a cult...who despises churches pretecting one after we shot at some gasoline near it...then a massive mob of the white clad people approaching...so we picked up conveniently placed disguises that another American pointed out...

I actually did have dreams like that though I was younger than and the lucid dream I had was terrifying.
I was in this black vehicle which was going at a very high speed and I didn't see anyone driving at all. I freaked out when that door just suddenly open and I fell straight out of the car but I woke to reality finding myself flat on the floor.

Yeah, lucid nightmares are sometimes scarier than normal nightmares, because you know that you're dreaming but you can't do anything because you're afraid... but don't worry, with a bit of practice you will soon be able to take full control of your lucid dreams.

Do you still lucid dream sometimes? Or only when you were younger?

Well, when I was younger I knew but I didn't pay any attention to it. I had been reading something so I could know when I'm dreaming and it said to during the day keep asking yourself until it's a habit and then you can do it in your dreams? So I think I did that

Yeah that also happens to me a lot... I realize I'm dreaming and then something else catches my attention and I forget that it's a dream

Can I ask you how you became aware that you were dreaming? Did it happen just like that or did you notice something strange?

I used to do it all the time when I was younger without knowing but as I've gotten older I've realised what it is and am more interested in the experience yet sadly it's harder to do now then ever. I remember being in a dream and my mum calling me once. I walk through my living roo, to talk to her and I realise I'm dreaming. I look around the see the detail and See More▼

Question: What if all your dreams lucid dreams?
reply
spookiness1e
If all your dreams are lucid, then you are able to think very critically, and you usually have a great imagination, because you can create worlds in your mind.

Hey, I thought I would explain you a bit how to become lucid in a dream. Even if you already know this, you can read this to remember it well

Becoming lucid in a dream means becoming aware that you are dreaming. There are in fact two major methods. I will now explain the first.

The first method is called DILD (Dream Induced Lucid Dream). This means that you become spontaneously lucid by recognizing that something is strange or out of place. Let me illustrate: imagine that See More▼

Remember, you need to do those reality checks as regularly as possible, so you will start doing them in your dreams too. And then you will become lucid! Controlling your dreams needs training and practice, but becoming lucid is a very important first step.

I hope this post helps you to better understand the DILD method, and the function and importance of reality See More▼

I have had many dreams....but do not knkw whether I controlled them or not....As I remember one dream vividly...It was a Western styled town where people dressed in Western styled revolutionary era clothing. I along with a group of people, one male and one female had entered a saloon-like building that had two stories.. We traveled through a table filled lojnge before heading upstairs, quickly sitting down. The dream was...went in an interestig direction at that point. Something See More▼

Yeah, when looking back at dreams, you usually notice that some things were strange. If you want to lucid dream, the goal is to notice these things already in the dream so you become aware that you're actually dreaming. I made a post about it here, if you're interested you can read it.

It...seemed exteremly vivid...though due to its realism...I do not know whether I knew at the time whether it was a dream or not...but soon after the tiger shot the building, we ran outside where it slowly clambered closer...but looking back at the dream now...the tiger was not proportioned right....but I ducked into a small ditch where I saw the tank roll closer, See More▼

That's interesting! I know, it can be confusing sometimes, because you don't really know if you actually controlled the dream or if you just dreamed that you controlled the dream.

The dream you just described... were you aware that you were dreaming? Or was this just a real vivid dream?

Well the only way you will have a lucid dream is only if you realize you are dreaming and then you are able to control your dream.

It does happen to others, I am pretty sure it doesn't only happen to you, well that's just my hypothesis. @erudite_nessie

Exactly! However, it needs some training to be able to control your dreams completely. For example, I often realize I'm dreaming, but I tend to "forget" it soon and continue with my normal dream. It has become better lately, but I wonder if it's only me or if other people have the same problem?
