This sounds great but wouldn't you get a bit worried in your LD that you were asleep for too long? I've had that before, been convinced that I've been asleep for ages and it must be late afternoon before I look at my clock! I know you're consciously prolonging it, but I think id still be worried if I had a really long dream that seemed like it went on for days that I was missing the day in real life. Guess it's ok on a weekend though. Anyway, I gotta try it next time I'm lucid for sure!


No, I don't think you have to be worried at all about missing real life. Time has a huge difference in dreams than it does in real life. Look back at peoples post on here... Spend a few days in a LD and it's two hours in RL. Well I'm not sure on how different time is compared from dreaming to RL, but from what I hear it's a huge difference...

Am I right guys?

I guess it is a fact that dreamtime is not parallel to real time, so I'm not worrying about that smile Anyway, you could always have a backup alarm that would prevent you from waking up too late!

It's all good news here siiw

Yeh but I usually get convinced in a dream that the alarms already gone off and I switched it off subconsciously or something! It's probably just one of my weird things. I mean I know dream time is different to real life time in some dreams, but it must be such a weird feeling to be in a dream for what seems like days and know that only an hour has past in real life. That just kinda blows my mind! Haha but I still have to try this, maybe it wouldn't be a problem at all for me I just got to try it.

Actually, why am I complaining-if this works it'd be amazing! Haha.

If he said he had a lucid dream for half his life, I´m guessing about 10-12 years maybe? It seems to me like he would have forgotten alot of things from his real life. Like friends, school etc. If it actully felt like around 10 years!

The best way to stay lucid, is when you realize your dreaming don't shit your pants. Plain and simple. Just relax for 30 seconds and then go apeshit.

I remember one time I had a nightmare and I realized I was lucid and pretty much started yelling doing cartwheels and flying, gloating and going crazy. Then It all faded to black and I woke up.

I tried that stopwatch thing. It didn't really work for me although I wasn't lucid to a high degree. Basically I put the alarm thing on for 15 mins and then forgot about it. The dream definitely didn't last for 15 mins. Then I tried it again in another LD and only put it on for 5 mins for some reason and I woke-up soon after. I'll have to do some experiments with this-I need to remember to check it to see if the time is running out. Maybe for me dream time is much faster than real time and I need to put the alarm on for like a week to have half an hour of dream time grin

I'm praying earnestly for the ability to experience a day in Wonderland every night. Basically an extra 24 hours of play-time. I truly believe that waking reality is merely for the physical nature of things. Consuming food, procreation, rest. Where as Lucid Dreaming is the realm in which pleasure and excitement should be sot out. Really, I'm just saying now that I have excelled at flying school waking up to watch a movie or purchase some external happiness seems boring.

So I wonder, after you wake up from such a long LD, does it really feel like you've been away for a long time? Or is it more that you told yourself in your dream that you were away, and you know a lot of stuff happened then?

I also want to try this for the purpose of meditation. Among other things, I could make things actually quiet. Even the meditation centers I've been to where I live are full of the noise from traffic in the street, so would be worth working for.

No I think I just did it sort of randomly because I'd been thinking about it when I was awake. I was lucid at the time but not so much that I'd be able to control anything to a high degree. I just kinda took it out of my pocket and set it without really thinking about it. I will try it again though-hopefully when I'm lucid to a higher degree.

I can't remember exactly who, but I already read someone's DJ here in the forum who had a dream that was 2 weeks long.

In that DJ it was really nice and kind weird. Waking everyday on the dream again and again. A bit annoying for some.

If you are a new LD'er, just try to scream.
Scream this: WHAT IS MY LUCIDITY LEVEL?


Memes + Dreams = win.

I admit I laughed hard to that. lach2
Besides, that's gotta surge your confidence to unseen levels. Forgetting about our doubts is the essential thing, and what more useful for this than taking it like a silly game?
