Cha Posted December 29, 2016 Share Posted December 29, 2016 So lately I've been "kinda" obsessed with this and even told a few family members/ppl here. Although I've figured out I've been in a dream on rare occasions, lately I've been trying to master lucid dreaming. Why? Because as an artist and a frequent daydreamer I just think that being able to control them would be the next step to a more awesome level of imagination. Plus it gives me story/drawing ideas and it makes you feel like you're watching a full screen movie. A few nights ago I tried the finger test, I kept counting my fingers while I was awake and eventually that night I had a dream counting them when things started to feel unordinary. By doing this I realize that something was wrong with my fingers and I must be dreaming. But the problem was as I tried to control what I dreamed about next, my subconscious would use the people around me to get angry. Even though I realized I can be good at simmering down arguments, I didn't take an enough assertive approach and wound up forgetting I was dreaming. Ok so last night I finally had a dream I could control. I forgot how I found out it was a dream, but I started to build my environment in it literally. I wanted to be in a city, so my mind made up a city for myself. But I didn't like the design, so I kept changing it even though my subconscious was slowly trying to distract me. I even had a dream my dad tried to wake me up because it was late in the afternoon, but I said 'screw it,' I'm going back to bed and keep dreaming anyways. Finally I got a city that represented what I wanted, I got the character I wanted to be in that situation and I even got to design a few more things in my head. It was so weird, like drawing but whatever I wanted in my mind popped up before me. I knew I was creating a world, but at the same time I was glad I wasn't FULLY aware it was all fake. I am hoping that my next dream will be fully lucid and I can control/imagine it all without my subconscious trying to take over again. Once I master control over it, I think I can lucid on regular. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
