Sorry to bring something back from last week.<quoted text>
Umm.. yes I do.
Personally, I have not experienced a "lucid dream" that I am aware of.
Have you had an OBE ?
When you are lucid dreaming can you/do you try to manipulate you're surroundings ?
Are you that aware that you can think outside the box ?
I have had OBE from about 12 yrs too 36 yrs. So I strongly believe I know what it is. It is when your body is dead asleep but your mind isn't. Of course i could go all over my house, the world. Though I haven't been over the world I know what it all looks like, I've seen it all on TV. I've picked up things I don't even know I've seen. So yes I can go anywhere. Or could it doesn't happen anymore.
It is very frightening, for a young teenager as we hear such crap things like, "you have a silver thread connecting your body to your soul, and if anything passes through the thread then your dead!
First you "know" your awake your body begins to tingle and you are unable to move, or scream though you "Know"your opening your mouth and screaming no sound comes out. Then a feeling of lightness begins followed by your "Soul"? slowly leaving the body. As a youngster I used to fight it, later I went with it, at one stage the grim reaper used to stand at the bottom of the bed. Eventually I used to just start thinking about sex, when it used to happen, and the sensations used to go away, and I'd drift off to sleep thinking sexy thought's :D
I can guarantee your not going anywhere. Somehow your body is dead asleep unable to move, but part of your brain is wide awake trying to run around! It isn't a lucid dream I've had heaps of them, this is totally different. I've heard others have been visited by the Grim Reaper, other than by the time I was being "visited" I had heard other's stories.
I have and do change the environment and situation, in my lucid dreams, yes I am totally aware I am the boss.
