Exactly the same here... I was eight years old at the time... I just thought, "This is going to be a nightmare!"
After that, I looked up LDs, and found RCs... since then, I've been climbing LD-wise! I had like... 5 just last month!



Current LD goal(s): Erm... have one.

I don't remember where I first heard about the LD phenomenon, but when I got interested enough to learn about it, I read Stephen LeBerge's book, and followed his instructions (Dream Journal, reality checks, etc.) and they worked quite well. I was having LDs fairly quickly (within 3-6 months, I would guess).

At first, I had these "OMG!" moments where I realized I was dreaming by checking a digital clock or whatever. After awhile though, I became lucid more or less automatically.

I'm new to this site, but relatively, not new to LD.

I remember having them ever since i was little. It'd usually be because someone was chasing me and i'd fly up into the air. And i'd realise, it's a dream!, and i'd force myself to wake up. Lol, i had no idea back then, that i could change the dream. I just knew that since it was a dream, i could get out of it.

And i'd have them every now and then. But i'd like to learn how to induce them. lol.

Been lucid dreaming as long as I can remember... before I even knew what they were called. I don't remember my first LD, but I remember my first flying dream, and the two probably happened around each other sometime, because now I use flying as a dream sign.

I had LDs for years, but rarely until I read a castaneda book "the art of dreaming". After that, I started recording my dreams every morning on a digital voice recorder (They are awesome for this...) and ever since, I have had about 10 in the last 3 months. Very cool.

Theres a book called "creative dreaming" that as a beginner I found awesome as well. Lays out all the basics.

Hah, I learned from this site believe it or not.
Learned the techniques but didn't use them much, let it come naturally.
I'm sure I have had many LD before I knew of the term tho wink

I already had LDs before I knew about them...but I had to develop a few strategies before I could have loads more.

Before the internet had much to say about Lucid dreaming I read Castaneda's the art of dreaming. I'm glad i found a site that somewhat validates what I have been trying to do and understand. If you haven't done it keep trying its attainable.

This fella I know years ago used to visit me by doing it. It made me research the whole thing and I started doing it and after a week, I pulled it off. Been doing them for 10 years now.

I had them naturally, but very rarely as a kid. When I was about 12 I did some research and discovered the MILD technique. I didn't really put much into it at first, and as a result didn't get any dreams. Now I keep a dream journal and use mild and wild.

I had a few more when I was little, and they came about from randomly realizing in the dream, "Oh, I'm dreaming!" I may have known about LDing in general before I had them; I can't remember. Most or all of them have been low-level, since I'd try something lucidly then I'd slip out of it as I let things unfold on their own. I recall several times that I'd try to fly, and either I couldn't get very high, or I'd run into a ceiling. (I found myself in my basement in the dream once.) My last low-level lucidity dreams were mostly creepy dreams in which I said, "At least this is only a dream, since I won't have to worry about this in reality." I had more when I kept my dream journal for a while, but I got lazy after a while, so last night I started it again in hopes of getting more. ^^
