I'm not a natural at all. It took me months of learning and practice to be able to lucid dream. I think it makes me appreciate it more!

I'm not a natural too. I don't remember any LD from my childhood...
But ever since I've learned about LDs, I usually wonder if I'm dreaming, even when I'm not trying to have LDs.

I'm not natural, but I do remember having two OBE's or LD's that were nearly exactly the same when I was a child.

In the first one, I floated up over my body and up towards the ceiling of my room, I wasn't scared as I noticed I had a silver or gold rope with me that I could pull to get me back to my body.

The second one was nearly exactly the same, but I was floating higher than before, and then I noticed the rope was gone and I started freaking out as I thought I would float away. I actually thought I was dying.

They stuck with me all my life, but they only made sense when I heard about Lucid Dreaming this year.



Current LD goal(s): Making music in my dreams....

The LDs I have now (currently that's very few) happen only at times of being actively interested in the topic. So I wouldn't call myself a natural lucid dreamer wink

I've had some LDs when I was young though, but I think that's because LDs are naturally more common in children..



Current LD goal(s): More space exploration!

I guess I am. I tend to realize I am in a dream more by intuition than any specific technique.
I don't often have lucid dreams or get them at will, mostly I have prelucid style dreams where I know I can do impossible things and aren't really in any danger but don't quite click that I am dreaming.
I don't keep a journal and tend to get a lucid dream when I stop trying too hard to have one but remain expectant and open to one occurring.
When I was young I used to use them as a ripcord to get out of dreams if I became too frightened. In one memorable dream There was a T-Rex prowling around the farm and I went outside the house to do something crucial by then the T-Rex was a man eating giant and was going to catch me that is when I got real scared and realized it was a dream. So I turned my back on it and sat down cross legged with my eyes closed and woke up.

I have started using reality checks and practicing mindfulness through the day. I have started recording titles for my dreams with a neat app called Lucidity too



Current LD goal(s): Converse with the dream and it's inhabitants

Pfff....I'm a seasoned noob at best. I don't remember anything even remotely resembling lucidity as a child. When I learned about it in college (having never even heard of it before) my interest took years and years to galvanize even to the point that I could start trying to generate an LD. Then it, without exaggeration, took me a full year of persistent trying to have my first one. When it finally manifested....well...you can imagine my excitement! smile

For those out there who are frustrated by delayed results.....don't sweat it. If I can LD....believe me, anyone can :D

I had Lds as a kid until I scared myself by doing something in a lucid dream that hurt me, then I stopped myself having them for a few years. Then I had to work very hard to get to the level I was at, it took time but was well worth it. So a natural? I feel most people are to a small level, but everyone can work to a high level.


Current LD goal(s): regain my nightly and focus on astral

I can I say I am a natural, to a certain extent.
I clearly remember as a child, it often happened to me to notice I was dreaming, especially during nightmares or when I was flying.
I am sure that sometimes I used that knowledge to force a wake-up for getting out of troubles.
I am less sure of how much I controlled my dreams when they were pleasant.

As a grown-up, before hearing about LD, I recall several experiences of false awakenings, semi-lucid dreams, seeing HI after a quick awake and stuff like that.
Once, I was able to see HI under closed lids and tell them in real-time to my wife... :D
Other than those rare occasions, I had basically no dream recall during last 7-8 years.


When I read about LD I thought - Hey, learning them would be a cakewalk for me, thanks to my previous experience.

Luckily it was really the case !

I had my first proper LD (DILD) just few days after starting practice, I was successful at MILD at first night, and now I am a dedicated WILD user.

I remember being natural as a child, but nowadays it seems to be gone. Weird.

I may be but I'm not sure.

I'm not sure. I just now discovered that this is what ive been doing & now that I know that it's like I've mentally messed with my own head. I think I'm getting in my own way. I just do it but not intentially. So now that I want to do it on purpose I can't. Hence joining this group.


Current LD goal(s): To have a talk with my spirit guides.

Well I still am a child so I can't really partake here. But I do have LD's every other night when sober.
