Post 'em!

For me, binaural theta beats = most epic dreams ever. That is to say, as of two weeks ago I'm learning dream control. I had my first fully lucid dream two nights ago: I flew around for a while, met and talked with all my characters from the Randomness project (<3 Sara), shot lightning from my hands for a while, then blew up the planet. (This last was too much and I woke up.) It was awesome. I'll post tips if you guys want them.

See you, space cowboy...

Buwahahahaha!
IM IN UR DREAMS, MESSING WITH UR Zs
Spoiler For the first dream I remember:
A long, dark, stone walled tunnel. The only light comes from two GameBoy Colors with backlit screens. On the screens are the smilies you see on Lego Minifigs, and outside the black line and the black dots is a gentle static. One GBC is blueish-teal, the other greenish-teal, and I talk to both of them as I walk down the hall.
Suddenly, I'm in a wide open area of ruins, with a bent wrought iron gate creaking on its hinges as it hangs off the tilted brick fence. An enormous roasted turkey with a stick of dynamite in it, all on a suitably sized plate, sits beyond the gate.
I awake, and run down to my parent's room, scared beyond anything I had yet experienced.

Today, I dreamed that Scout made a post on the Swedish Pokémon forum... In Swedish.
He didn't use Google Translate from what I could see. His grammar wasn't perfect, but I still had no idea how he managed to know so much Swedish.

For reference, I think he knows about five words IRL.

(true) Today I dreamed that my Total Post Ratings reached +41 and was growing permanently.
Only in my dreams  :'(.
EDIT: after connecting here, I noticed that I really got a +1 during that night !
EDIT: I also noticed after that the +1 is at this post so it wasn't that night...

Here's a dream I had several years that eventually became a game that I'm currently developing:

<open narrative>

You wake up in a dry, dusty desert. Tumbleweeds grow in scattered patches across the desert as far as you can see. You're surrounded by four thick, strong gates ringed with razor wire, the gate to the southeast slowly swinging in the small buffets of wind. Overhead, several black vultures circle, occasionally diving to ravage one of the numerous dead animals lying near the gates. You start across the desert beyond the gate, wanting to the reach the deep desert before the desert claims you for itself. It's rumored that surviving exiles live there in an area called Black Canyon. All you know for certain is that you can't return to the nation that exiled you on pain of death.

The sun glares down ever harder as you stumble across the desert, the day lengthening. Occasional howls from the distant mountains to the northwest drift across the endless sands. Coupled with the intense dehydration, they provoke wild hallucinations of the horrible creatures The Project is rumored to have summoned in those godforsaken hills.

...

You've been traveling for what seems like years. The sounds of the desert have driven you to near insanity.  However, it occurs to you that the landscape has subtly changed from the endless plains where you were exiled. Small shrubs have have replaced the prickly tumbleweeds and sandy plateaus gradually descend towards a narrow chasm splitting the landscape. As you approach the dark chasm, the wind howls around you, shrieking and deafening. You note the dark stone composing its sheer walls, which descend into a misty abyss whose depths cannot be seen. This is Black Canyon.

DEAR CHRIST, MAN.
I need them tips on lucid dreaming.

Teach me the ways! o_o

I did a bit of experimenting with binaural beats when I was young. I never felt them work for me though...

Here's how I learned:
1. Reality checks. Whenever something unexpected or frustrating happens, count your fingers, lean on a wall, etc to check you're awake. You'll eventually start doing these in dreams. If they fail, you become lucid.
2. Semiconciousness. Set your alarm late in the night, then go back to sleep. Keep repeating to yourself "I will be aware I'm dreaming." If you can, keep the desired topic of the dream in your thoughts. This is the easiest way to practice.
3. Theta binaural beats.
See you, space cowboy...

Lol yay now we have one here as well

Im like a lucid dreaming encyclopedia I have been following it for almost a year now and its one of the most amazing things ever!!!

im to lazy to type my last good dream out it was like 20 minutes long and had alot of detail so ill give you some bullets

Code: (Dreams) [Select]
 ; -Time traveling Scooter -traveling in time to fix my mistakes -being chased threw time by my dream characters -mind controlling aliens
was alot of fun!!
if i can find the old dream topic ill copy one of my mario dreams over that one was epic

Ok for you Raylin first question needs to be asked how good is your dream recall on average?

as for binareal beats I can make them on request and i find a sweep to a high delta then a sharp rise to a mid theta works the best at re awareing you in a dream just have to get the timing right

I usually don't remember any of my dreams.  I think I remember 3 dreams throughout my entire life.

besides forcing me to wake up in the middle of sleeping using some hair-brained method (hopefully not involving blue lobsters), what did you do?

well not waking up in the middle of a night is easy and all it helps but meh it just screw up your sleep schedule.

so this is what i did </start infomercial>

i started something called a dream journal
i started using auto suggestion prod my memory along
i set my alarm to wake me up in a rem cycle around my target wake up time

those are in order of importance to me not so much effectiveness

a dream journal is basically a log you keep every morning of your dreams and the absence of dreams ect. this makes your subconscious feel they are important and has it stick in your memory a bit longer. it also shows progress which is a huge uplifter

autosuggestion: works wonders on me its basically telling your self and believing that you will do X with out a doubt. this just confirms it and again makes it more important to you

setting the alarm: waking up in a rem cycle wakes you up in a dream making you remember it as you were just experancing said dream.

i would start off keeping a dj that alone make the differences if i don't keep one i have crap on dream recall if i do keep one its back to one a night if not more than 1 dream a night

and do what works best for you these are guidelines not every thing works for every one

you start off by keeping a dj? acronyms my not be best here.  Interesting idea, but I don't think I would do it.  Not worth the effort, I guess.
