Default Last night, I had a lucid dream...

I don't have lucid dreams very often. Sometimes in the middle of a vivid dream, I'll just suddenly become aware, and instead of waking up, I manifest it.

So last night, I was dreaming about the zombie apocalypse. Matt and I were kicking zombie ass. And suddenly, I was aware. And didn't wake up.



Was a very interesting, fun, and somewhat scary night. And the oddest bit? I feel exhausted today. My muscles feel like I ran all night. Sucks, because I have to work today!

How exciting! I've only had a few lucid dreams in my life, and they're always terribly short. Count yourself lucky, not everyone has experiences like these!

Plus if you've had a lucid dream, you're more likely to have another.

How fun, I've only ever had one lucid dream. I was sitting in a beergatrden with my friends and suddenly relised I had never seen this place before, thought it might be a dream. Tried to fly and could and then woke up. Would love to get to do it more often.

I'm really jealous. I've never had a lucid dream.

I had them more when I was younger. mostly when it happens I turn to "myself" -as if a character were talking directly to me from a tv screen-and say "this is only a dream..." then I can control things more

I have them quite often complements of Wellbutrin and Buspar.

I hate the ones where I try to wake up out of it and do, only to realize I really didn't. It will take me forever to get myself out of it and by then I'm in panic mode.

Yeah, mine are often when I take Benadryl to help me sleep... which I did last night. LOL.

I've been there with the panic. Once I'm lucid, it becomes near impossible to wake myself up within the dream. Outside stimuli, like my wake-up alarm, has to happen.

Holy crap I think I had the first one ever the other night - you're saying it could be the Wellbutrin?! Crazy...

I sometimes have these every night for multiple nights in a row, multiple times throughout the night...I end up panicky all day and constantly confused as to whether or not I'm dreaming


I had much more pleasant lucid dreams always as a child...my dreams were never NOT lucid.
