    Is it weird that I don't actually know if I lucid dream, I always forget my dreams when I wake up and think I controlled it when I remember but have no idea

    Also, people here are talking about how it took lots of practise - how do you actually train yourself to lucid dream?:/

    My own experiences are completely different from anonymouse's - I'm not one of those people who naturally lucid dream, I had to learn, but it didn't take much effort. It doesn't "**** you up" to see weird things in a mirror - aside from anything else, you're dreaming, so you don't really feel emotions the same way (in general, in my experience, emotions in dreams are either massively, ridiculously overamplified, or pretty much not present). You take very weird things in your stride (as if it were completely natural for you to have seven fingers, for example - that's my stock lucidity test). I've never been haunted by dreams (at least, not for longer than about five minutes after the dream ends)…
    How do you train yourself to do it? I've accidentally done it a couple of times before.

    I love lucid dreaming, but I haven't had one for a few years now. I keep trying to induce them, but not having much luck.

    Anyone had a lucid nightmare?

    Yup, but they're rare because you can turn a nightmare into a non-nightmare with a bit of practice

    I followed https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Lucid_dreaming
    It takes a bit of practice in waking life to perform checks that will lead you to notice that you're not dreaming; then out of sheer habit you perform those checks in a dream and realise that you're dreaming, because the checks turn out differently. After a while, you get to be able to tell when you're in a dream without performing the checks (although not very reliably, in my experience - I've never thought I was dreaming when I was actually awake, though.)

    Don't think of trying lucid dreaming. Sometimes it will go wrong and you will have dreams that haunt you for the rest of your life.

    Some things are psychological like we never see ourselves in a mirror, or even look in the mirror in the first place, in our dreams.

    Lucid dreaming removes these psychological boundaries, and if you see your face in the mirror and the background is black or something really unnatural, then that's gonna **** you up.

    Sure it can help if you're a beginner but why pay money when you can learn for free?

    For anyone in this thread wanting to learn a good website for guides and tutorials is www.dreamviews.com, my username on there is djpatch999 so if you need any help with anything on that side of things feel free to message me.

    On another note, a lucid nightmare can be the scariest thing in the world at first because of how vivid and real it feels. But after a minute things get better

    A good thing to help you remember your dreams is to keep a Dream Journal. Every morning write down what you remember, even if it's nothing just write "remembered nothing" This will get you into a habit of doing it and it tells your brain that you want to remember your dreams.

    It's a dream where you are aware that you're dreaming, and you have perceived control over the dream. It's happened to me once, and I was on a super yacht somewhere at a party, and 'I decided' to go up to the top deck and dive into the pool.. Scared the crap out of me when I did!!

    You should have tried to breathe underwater, that's always a fun thing to try

    I would hate it.. The fact that I'd managed to get myself to jump into a pool was strange enough to wake me up.. (EVEN THOUGH I LOVE SWIMMING!!).

    You can do insane dives - you can jump, and fly up to whatever height, then shoot back down

    I have known about lucid dreaming for the past couple of years, although I have never really got around to committing to it. How long did it take you from starting to record your dreams and performing reality checks to having your first lucid dream?

    It took me about 5 months but I didn't actually start trying properly until about 4 and a half months after I got interested. So in fact it took me about 2-3 weeks. After that I managed about 3 a week until the exams hit :P If you want to see my lucid dream journal it's stored online here: http://www.dreamviews.com/blogs/djpatch999/lucid/
