    Idk what age. For me it naturally happens
    Same here, I've never had to force myself to lucid dream. Heck I didn't even know I was doing it until a few years ago. :shakecane:

    I get them quite often.


    The last time I had one, I managed to talk people into coming to deserted locations where I had sex with them. Afterwards for some reason they'd morph into an animal, and I'd kill them. I repeat this process, of luring, having sex, and killing, until I wake up.

    Every time I have a nightmare, I'm the weak one. At times I've slightly been able to "regain" a bit of strength by trying to force myself to move, but when something bad or scary happens, I can't move - I'm just weak. When I do force myself though, I usually just wake up. Once I prevailed and I don't know if I beat the bad guy or something like that, but I was happy when I woke up. I think that sometimes a dream evolves to a nightmare - weird stuff. I don't know why that is or what it is. A couple of times I've lucid dreamed but I didn't realise I was doing it - only in hindsight when I'm thinking back now, do I realise that I did in fact manipulate my actions to some extent.

    I wonder if my "nightmares" have ever been sleep paralysis. I'm curious to know what sleep paralysis is, but the thought of being absolutely powerless is quite scary - quite like the nightmares I used to have - except sleep paralysis sounds a lot more vicious.

    i can control it now. Been doing it for a month or so and had one almost every day. There's two things you do.
    1) keep a dream journal (i use the notes bit on my phone) and record ALL of your dreams and lucid dreams to as much detail as you can.
    2) Set your alarm for 2 hrs before youre meant to wake up then turn around on your bed. This helps make you more aware and then go back to sleep. After a while, you can have longer lucid dreams by waking up earlier.

    I dont get many lucid dreams, but I believe the last one I had was of me stuck in an alleyway with giant spiders chasing me.

    nope never had a lucid dream; my brain has been able to fool me every single time into thinking a dream is real. even when it involved dead family members i was too stupid to realize apparantly

    i get sleep paralysis same as above poster though; whenever i try to run during a dream the best i can do is kinda skip sideways (i can run forwards but its like i'm doing it in slow-motion and i realize the side-skipping is faster so i switch to that). i'm always aware this is going to happen when i try to run away during a dream but never clock on it's because i'm asleep -_-

    I used to share a bedroom with my sister and the only dreams I've ever really remembered are INCREDIBLY vivid but very mundane ones:
    - her getting up to go to work early in the morning (I'd wake up and she'd still be in bed)
    - her arriving in the middle of the night (despite her staying at her flat)
    - us arguing over her texting (she used to have a blackberry and the clicking would wake me up), again when she's not even in the room.

    I've woke up so confused sometimes!

    I've made it clear on here that I plan on starting the old vitamin S soon, tbh I'm a bit terrified of tren because I've heard the dreams are nothing short of ****ing mental :rofl:
    It's so true... never had more bizarre and memorable dreams in my life

    Only once. I was sleepwalking and was dreaming that I was flying around the house.

    Yep, a couple of times, it was amazing. It was like I was God and could make anything out of thin air, shape reality etc.

    I've also had a dream within a dream before.
    Dream within a dream was funny.
