The first time I’ve experienced lucid dreaming was after taking some percocets.

    I lucid dream all the time, without aid. It’s just part of my nature.

    Ah I love lucid dreams!

    I’d say recognizing dream signs is the safest way to go.

    Lucid dreaming only exists in Science Fiction. There is no valid research that lucid dream occurs. Personal experience is not a conclusive verification since the dream may serve as motivation to provide additional cues to observe or to perform to acheive the desired result. ie Goal orinetation. However, if motivation is what is necessary to accomplishment – excellent.

    Let’s be clear what we are talking about here. A lucid dream is any dream in which you become aware that you are dreaming while you are still dreaming. Once you become aware that you are dreaming, you have control over the dream and you are able to have a sense of consciousness while you go through the experience. There is nothing about a lucid dream that has to do with clairvoyance or precognition. It is simply the awareness that you are dreaming while you are dreaming.

    OK, so how can you make one happen?
    First, realize that you will have to have some sort of event within your dream that will cause you to activate your awareness and gain an outside perspective on the activities in your dreams. So, pick some event or some object that you think that you might come across in your dream. The object can be something unusual or common, dark or bright, vegetable or mineral, or it can even be a person. Create a very clear image of this object in your mind. Think of all of the details of this object, including what it smells like, feels like, the temperature of the object, and how it might sound if it fell on the ground. Visualize it in your mind down to the last detail. OK, got it?

    Now, before you go to sleep at night, think about this object. Tell yourself that you will see this object in your dreams that night. They are your dreams, and so, you can put anything you want to in your dreams. Tell yourself that, at some time during the night, you will see this object in your dream. OK?

    Now for the most important part. Tell yourself that anytime that you see this object, you will realize that you are dreaming. It might take a few tries, but at some point, this object is going to appear in one of your dreams. When it does, if you have made the suggestion to yourself that you will become aware that you are dreaming, you will become lucid during your dream. Whatever happens after that is up to you! Enjoy!

    The reason why I must lucid dream is something of the fantastical realm, but it is for my own protection…so you had better believe that I have vast experience in how to achieve this, and it is rather simple.

    When you are going about your day, at least a hundred times a day, touch something 8 na door handle, a railing, a telephone, a desk top andything)…feel it for what it is, like in a grip. and ask yourself, ‘am I dreaming’ the obvious answer is ‘no’ since you are awake. Once you do this over time, you will instill this practice into your self conscious…after a while you will then do it in your dreams…only when that happens, you will ask yourself, ‘am I dreaming’ and suddenly the answer is ‘yes’…from there you will learn little by little how to control your dreams.

    good luck
