I've always been a natural dreamer. lach1

I have really vivid HI and as long as I can remember I've had LDs. The control hasn't always been there but the knowledge has and I just thought that everyones dreams were like that. Guess I know different now. turn3

I used to incubate dreams extremely easily. I'd just "day"dream as I was going to sleep, and my dream would be a continuation of the "day"dream. I can't do it very well now though, which sucks because if I could I would use it for VILD!!

Well, I'm not sure I'd call myself a natural, although I haven't had much trouble having LD's lately. But I have had, I believe, at least 2 LDs when I was a kid. I only remember one where I thought something like "hey, I'm dreaming. I better not think to much about it or I'll wake up." Then I lost lucidity. But I knew excitement could wake me, so I think I had some "experience" before...

I used to be able to get up out of bed and then hope right back into a dream right where it left off. Now I always seem to have a completely different dream.

Anyways about LDing, I had my first one when I was 7 during a daytime nap, and after getting out of bed I discovered that I could float on the carpet. So then I tried doing bellyflops onto the carpet and, landing about a foot above the ground, floating around my house.
"If only my parents could see me doing this! I'll be famous!" I thought. I thought it was the most amazing thing in the world and I had superpowers and that, of course, it was real life. I floated through the hallways and living room - my dreamscape being a perfect rendering of my house.
It was so real that I don't even remember waking up (or rather, didn't think anything of it), and just as I woke up my parents were pulling in the driveway, so I decided to run to the door and wait to show them my awesome new powers.
My dad opened the door and I go, "Dad, look!" And I run and do a bellyflop flat on the carpet in front of him. He looked confused.
"No, wait! I can fly! Look!"
...I did it again...and I was crushed.
In hindsight, that night my parents were probably discussing what special ed school I'd be enrolled in when the time came. Oh dear.

I remember when i was way younger, i had lucid dreams since i was 5-7 yrs old and they stopped when i was around seven. back then i didnt know anything about them or what they were called. i didnt even know i could control them, i only knew i could tell myself im dreaming to wake me up from a nightmare by saying and thinking really hard 'im dreaming im dreaming' over and over again.'

Has anyone else had natural lucid dreams all their lives?
PostPosted: Mon 09 Mar, 2009  Reply with quote

I've been lucid dreaming since I was about four or five years old. Originally, I used to have a lot of nightmares when I was little (people were always chasing me and I could never get away. My hair always flew in my face and I stumbled everytime I tried to run. I guess you could say I hadn't yet acquired my "dream feet".)

Eventually, that type of dream became so common that I began to realize when I was dreaming. So I woke myself up. As I got older, I realized that I could also control my dreams--change the scenery or the plot, fly, create forcefields, rewind my dreams to redo things, use telekenisis, etc. I called these my dream powers. I thought everyone had them.

I think some of my success as a lucid dreamer is the result of my good dream recall. There is seldom a dream I cannot remember in explicit detail. And my god, they seem so long. I've had people accuse me of making my dreams up simply because they were so long lol.

Anyhow, to get to the point--I've never encountered someone who experiences as many lucid dreams as I do, or who possesses the same dergree of control over those dreams. So I'd like to konw if this is rare, and to hear other's experiences. ^^

Well, how often do you have lucid dreams? I have met some others online who have lucid dreams every night, around 1-2 a night or so. I was just at a dreaming conference in Sweden (IASD) where I talked to some researchers who said that people with lucid dreams pretty much every night were really hard to come by.

I'm a natural - i had some lucid dreams when i was a child, but i always woke up - i couldn't stay in the dream. I thought it wasn't possible to stay in the dream while being lucid. Last year i found ld4all and now i know it IS possible. ^^

I've had lucid dreams all my life, before I knew what they were or that not everyone has them. I created worlds and flew and did all sorts of things when I knew I was dreaming. I remember trying to convince the friends I made in dreams (mostly unicorns smile ) to come with me when I woke up so I could have them as friends in my waking life. In high school, my boyfriend got into Carlos Castaneda and struggled with the techniques described in the book. The first thing you're supposed to do is look at your hands, and he was having a hard time with it. I wasn't really that interested, but one day I decided I would try it. That night I did it and told him later and asked him what the fuss was all about? He was pretty mad, actually. wink

i've had a couple when i was little. i vaguely remember them not enough to give any real details. though i also had a few when i was in control but never realized they were dreams. Those have been more common and more recent.

I don't know if I'm a natural; I think I had 1 or 2 ld's when I was young. I remember jumping over houses through my neighborhood, it was like I turned down the gravity.

Well, I've had a few dreams where I knew I was dreaming, but most of them were nightmares and I didn't know I could change things.

I also have had dreams (again, mostly bad ones) where I worried about monsters and criminals and stuff and lo! they appeared, which is kind of like lucid dreaming, neutral in that you create things by believing they will materialize.
