    Sort of do very regularly. Definitely not in the conventional sense, but I have this unusual ability in which, if I'm in the middle of a dream and I don't like the way it's going, at any given moment I can take control and be like "Anyways, sod this, I'm gonna wake myself up now." and then wake up instantly. Every time it happens I just think how cool it is and then go straight back to sleep

    I can do whatever I like in my dreams and often remember (and enjoy thinking about them, I love my dreaming) them quite well. Happens a lot to be honest, and a tactic for them (at least for me) is to simply drift back and forth or linger around before sleeping, it helps quite a bit.

    I only ever remember having one once. As soon as I realized I was dreaming, I got too excited and woke up!

    I've always wanted to Lucid dream but it doesn't seem like a simple task and almost takes lots of research to achieve it. The thought of going into sleep paralysis is a bit scary and kind of puts me off it though!
    Sleep paralysis isn't as bad or common as people imply, depending on your method. I've had quite a few lucid dreams, and only had sleep paralysis twice afaik, and while one time it was really terrifying, the other time it was fine.

    It is a lot easier than you'd think. You can take shortcuts - for example, wake up at 3am and stay awake for 10 minutes to wake your mind up a bit, then go back to sleep; this is what I have been doing*, and I went to having my first lucid dreams for a few years (albeit still very short) after only a few nights of doing this. If you don't want to disturb your sleep so much, or if you are a deeper sleeper, then it will take longer, but again, still very little effort compared to what you get as a result.



    *Although I admit that when I wake up, it sometimes takes me actually around 1.5 hours to get back to sleep - but I think that is quite unusual, I am a very light sleeper.

    Every night
    Sometimes they get - weird...
    Sometimes they can be helpful: ie: I will dream about potential scenarios for the following day and therefore can make more informed decisions about what to do in them? :erm:
    My old Psychology teacher said something about the dreams you remember having now actually happened 2 weeks ago. I don't know how much of this is true but I have never forgotten this.
    Interesting :beard:

    I think maybe once? And I did wake up very soon after... [It was quite a naughty one too] :blush:

    My dreams are either really, really random, or include things I've seen in the past day, but don't really remember paying attention to. So say if I saw a school friend passing in the corridor, I would not remember seeing them, nor would I dwell upon the memory of their face. But my dream may include it, as if it's only the subconscious stuff it's using (which is kinda the point, I guess) :dontknow:

    Gimme some pointers guys :please:

    I have no idea, just an ability I've developed over the past 5 years without actually aiming to :lol: I can't remember the last time I had a nightmare really, because as soon as the dream starts going pear-shaped I'm outta there and I totally forget what the dream was about by the morning

    Ratio of nightmares:not nightmares is about 6:2 maybe
    that's why
    I'm also counting creepily accurate ones as nightmares as well...

    Are you sure they are lucid dreams if they are nightmares...?

    A lucid dream is one where you are aware you are dreaming; usually that also means you can control them, more than enough to prevent it from being a nightmare.

    Yes I control them from being awful nightmares to trying not to die in them
    ie: I will make the decision to hide instead of standing there and etc... :hide:

    Every time I get lucid, I get so excited that I wake up. Longest I've stayed lucid for has been maybe a couple of minutes.

    But I've had pretty awesome non-lucid dreams as side-effects. I have the best dreams. Nobody builds better dreams than I do.
    I've experienced inception several times before the movie came out.

    It's actually annoying af.

    And if not, why the hell not?
    a few weeks ago i had a dream which started off where i was looking at duvets to buy one (which i have actually recently been doing) and then it turned into a nightmare. i thought to myself in the dream 'don't worry it's only a dream you'll wake up in a minute' then I WOKE UP IN MY DREAM and couldn't move then i actually woke up. I'm very confused about what was going on with this dream
