I was wondering: is it good to lucid dream or bad?

I think it's good and cool...if you can figure out how to control them. It's great for meditation.

However I still haven't figured out how to control them. Apparently the key to a lucid dream is to realize you're dreaming. Well, last night I DID realize I was dreaming and I was powerless. I was in a car with 2 of my sisters, and suddenly my face started growing bumps and losing feeling. I touched my face and looked in the rear view mirror, and I was freaking out quietly. Then I asked my sister what was happening to me, and she was just confused and calm. It's like they didn't realize what was going on. In THAT moment I realized it was all a dream.
I then told my sisters "Oh wait a minute! This is a dream, isn't it? " and my sisters started laughing at me, at the ridiculousness of my claim. Then I got frustrated and I was thinking within my dream, trying to control it but I couldn't do anything and my face was completely paralysed. After giving up, I forced myself awake and saw my face was improperly placed on my pillow and tingling from a loss of sensation (hence the dream).

Anyway, can you do it? And if so, what's the trick beyond realizing it?

I like it most of the time. I have sleep paralysis, so my body falls asleep before my mind does, meaning I'll still be awake but I can't move my body at all.
Everytime this happens I dream, but I get this weird transaction period where i'll be lucid dreaming. Most of the time it's pretty cool, however the paralysis makes the lucid dreams where I get hurt or die, absolutely terrifying haha.

Lucid dreaming is good, in almost all senses. Ive been trying to achive the ability to lucid dream for a while, but it seems hard. If you can control your dreams, lucid dreaming is very amazing.

I'm never wrong. I once thought I was wrong, turns out, I was mistaken.

I've heard of that, but I don't know what it means. Can anybody explain?


Who needs a witty signature anyway?

I've had a lucid dream just once. My brother and I had discussed it the day before, and in the dream I stopped, realized I was dreaming, and thought, "Oh wow, I can't wait to wake up and tell Matt about this."

Over the years, my dreams have changed somewhat. They still don't make any sense; I've never dreamed about anything that had occured in my life, but when I was younger, my actions in my dreams seemed random, and I'd wake up wondering why in the world my dream-self did what he (I) did. But as I got older, I acted and responded in dreams the way I actually would in the waking world, though I still can't control what I do.

I can almost control what i do if i realize I'm dreaming, i can manage to make my dream self do small things like look down, but if i try to say something specific, or walk, or anything major, it i happens in very slow motion. something that helps is to get your mind to want to remember dreams, because it pulls them to a slightly more conscious level to store them. (only slightly) If you get into the habit of writing down your dreams as soon as you wake up (keep pencil and paper by your bed) you mind will recognize remembering as a priority, and allow your conscious (thinking) and unconscious (dreaming mind to interact, henceforth letting you have fun in your dreams. it also helps if you don't start off trying to make your dream self do something you wouldn't do in real life.
