I'm curious about your experience with these things.

I've started having both a lot lately since I picked up a clonazolam habit. My first lucid dream is documented in the bump with dreams thread. I have a strong past with dissos but have been off a few days and my last clam dose was last night. I started getting tired in the middle of the day today so I went and laid down. After a few minutes I would get a hallucination that my eyes were open and I was looking at my hands, or my ceiling, etc. Very real and vivid but the slightest movement and it disappeared. Very cool. I was also having half dreams but very faded, more like a shift in my thoughts process and visuals akin to strong imagination. This happened for a while but then as I was finally nodding off to sleep a man behind me started repeating that cheesy creepysta thing you see on /b/ (except he said "My name is benny dick and I'm dead" because I was thinking about taking some benadryl to up the experience before since clearly some goofy shit was going on). Either way it was fucking terrifying.

So I screamed like a total bitch and wound up in sleep paralysis. Couldn't move no matter how hard I tried, kept hearing people talk and dogs barking. All the while I was scared shitless over who the man was and if hed return. Thank God I was facing the wall because I know that it basically becomes a /del/ trip with shadow people and shit. I fell on the floor and felt the hardwood against my leg but opening my eyes showed me on my bed still. Tried so hard to scream for my roommate but to no avail. My previous paralysis experiences were brief but this went on for a good 10-15 minutes.

My aim was for a lucid dream since those are the coolest shit and I figured I was in for one because of the goofy hallucinations I was getting. I dont have an explanation for any of this other than the clonazolam from last night and the 3meo from 4 days ago.

So anyway
Post experiences with lucid dreams and sleep paralysis here. Tips and such are welcome as well.

I'm surprised this isn't a more oft discussed topic around here.

Never had a problem with sleep paralysis. I'm told holding your breath is both possible and a decent way to jolt yourself awake because your body goes "oh shit someone's choking me". That or you're some kind of superhuman who can choke himself to unconsciousness at will, but that still solves the problem of shadow people.

Now, lucid dreaming. Bear in mind that half of what you'll find, including what I'm saying, is likely to be broscience with no bearing in reality, so try things out and pick what works.
Supplements: There's a ton of different guides and shit out there, and I'm not into them well enough to really make a ton of recommendations, so I'll just say you might get something from taking a pill or two of vitamin B before bed. Some people swear melatonin helps, but I dunno. Talk to your doctor about that if you wanna try it, it shouldn't be dangerous but just say you're having a little trouble sleeping and mention you've heard it might help, Lord knows it might even be available OTC.
There are some who swear by Valerian, but the science is all over the place on that and some claim it's harmful, so yeah.

Generally I'm not a fan of supplements. They never did much dream-wise (although it did help me sleep better than usually, so there's that) so I've largely stayed away from that.

Pre-sleep tricks: If you can fall asleep on your back, that's great. The goal here is to trick your body into thinking it's sleeping before your brain shuts completely down (for reference, this is known as Wake-Induced Lucid Dreaming, or WILD). I personally can't, but still give it a go sometimes because the numbness and not-entirely-wakeful consciousness is pretty nice.
Other than that, skip the coffee and energy drinks thirty minutes before bed. Nothing wrong with a bit of food, but you're trying to fall asleep.

Habits: There are ways to check if you're awake if you're ever in doubt, but unless it's a habit you'll probably forget to do so because everything makes sense in the context of a dream even if it'd be crazy IRL. Start developing habits that'll help you check your state of mind. My personal favourite was/is to try to push my index finger through my palm. Since you're awake, go ahead and try now. It won't feel that way in a dream: Results vary, but usually involve your finger moving right along its merry way. Do this right, and you'll realize you're asleep. Good job, that's step one.

Other options for this include, but are in no way limited to: Checking digital clocks and trying to read them, watching for false awakenings/deja-vu, having a detailed morning routine involving one or more of these. Basically checking that anything that's consistently weird in dreams is behaving normally. I don't recommend going full-on Inception and carrying around fucking spinning tops and whatever, though, unless you've got a locket with a picture of your dead child or something, in which case I apologize.

Spinning works. Seriously, spin moar fgt.

And fuck the door leading out of your god damn bedroom. Holy fuck, fuck hallways to your bedroom. Jump out your window instead. The most horrifying creatures stand in hallways and will stare you down for hours straight. Jesus fucking Christ, you can't escape the stare.

Trying to orgasm if you ever do get to fuck someone always ends up with you waking up before orgasm and furiously beating down the more raging boner ever. Often with intense feelings of wanting to hit yourself in the nuts. Weird as fuck.

Nothing electrical ever works right either. Light switches, clocks, computers etc. I've had 2 experience where I though I was dreaming but was actually awake. Didn't go to well. Most people don't even know what lucid dreaming is. Screaming naughty words is a good checker. Most people in real life will kinda weird out but in dreams screaming FUCK always makes people float away. The bad part is screaming FUCK in the walmart can get you kicked out.

>One thing the other guy didn't mention I don't think is that when you wake up with sleep paralysis, expect your chest to feel like a bus is sitting on top of it. This shit sucks, especially when Bill-Bob McShadow Tentacle is ominously watching you by the door.

>Spin moar

I was actually really into lucid dreaming a while ago. I stopped when I would sincerely question my reality before doing a reality check. It really makes you appreciate trippy shit we have today, like planes, phones, all technology.
I've beeing doing RC's for a month+ but I smoke a lot of weed these days and I don't keep a journal so meh.
I've also fucksed with paralysis, that shit is mythical.
The consistently increasing and inaudible background noise, your loud heartbeat, your whole body pulsating and tingeling, and then you see your encumbered coat hanger turn into a dark figure edging close to you or a man entering your room, all while being paralysed.
Usually when it happens I close my eyes and try to think of puppies and rainbows to mute the complete terror but that demonic, background sound just starts screaming at you. Even if you close your eyes you just know that there's someone or something there.

A good reality check is closing your nose and trying to breathe through it. It works like a charm and has only failed me once when I wasn't paying attention in a dream. I always try to fuck in dreams, like, always. I'd suggest talking with people, I really want to tell some dream character I am dreaming. Shit, I'd rather live in the dream world forever, too bad the DMT death theory isn't real.

For over 10 years I've dreamed of committing suicide but in every scenario, I wake up before I die or commit to doing whatever method. In the past year or less I've had repeated dreams though where I go through with it and I actually kill myself. I then see my body fall but my vision remains in the same place as I eyes were before I died and I see my corpse on the ground. An amount of time passes and I wake up with no feelings whatsoever. Before I would feel a sense of mania and insanity along with depression.

>wut doth dat shite mean bruh?

I had a dream when I was 6-7ish years old that I met Snoop Dogg and we went on to star on the set of the Drop It Like It's Hot. I've wanted to meet him ever since then.

I've had dreams with at least a few others when I was younger. I fucked J Lo before. In that dream I was in a white room, white bed and had intercourse with five, probably more fine broads, at once. J-Ho was the leader of them all and I had a final boss battle with her.

Anyone fuck or have a lucid dream about fuckin, An then you bust irl?

I have been astral protecting sence i was fifteen. Last night i had a strange experience where i was flying around space and i ran into a girl. I didnt say or do anything we just made eye contact and when we did we flew at eachother and had sex? I think? It felt dope and i woke up and i had busted a fat nut all over myself like some kind of chump. Never had this happen and im wondering if any of you have?

Also what are some of the repercussions of this. Im still in college and i cant take care of no astral babbies. I also didnt use any protection, not even a positive loving light bubble around my dick. Can you catch STDs in the astral realm?

This might've been discussed to death on this board, I'm sorry if it has been. I don't really frequent this board.
Basically, I gave up smoking a week ago and I got prescribed nicotine patches. Now, what they didn't tell me is that it completely fucks with your dreams. I don't know the exact science, but basically, when smoking cigarettes, nicotine realy activates your brain and makes it rush. So when I go to sleep with a patch on, I'm basically getting nicotine pumped into my body while sleeping, causing my brain to go into crazy-mode even though I'm asleep. This results in the craziest fucking dreams. Very lucid, very memorable. I wake up three to four times a night and remember exactly what I was dreaming about and comfortably go back to that dream after about five minutes.
Now I've spoken to some people who say that the nicotine patches give them nightmares, but that's not the case for me. Just completely random and weird dreams and I fucking love it. I've always somehow had the capacity to turn a prospective nightmare into something positive, like my brain won't allow nightmares and just changes the scenario into something good.

Rambling over. I just wondered if any of you guys every experimented with nicotine patches. There's stories all over the internet on how they affect your dreams. Like I said, you're probably aware of this but I thought I'd share anyway. It's a wild ride and I love it for now.

Yes... Fucking YES.

Craziest fucking dreams of my life. Chased through endless hellforest corridors, initiated the end of the world by opening snake doors... Met cosmic underground buddhist sects, endless, terrifying, beautiful, incomprehensible lucid nightmares.

10/10, you'll wake up sweating but would recommend. Seems to get crazier the higher the patch dosage.

What are your memorable dreams so far with them OP?

So I heard a song as I was waking up; went to the computer and wrote down some lyrics so I could search and find it. I wasn't sure if I did this or not, so I was a bit suprised when I saw it there, lyrics were "time to get ready for this" and I cannot find the song. What the fuck? It was a really epicly good rock song.

I had a dream that a man was teaching me how to play guitar and he was really good. I think it may have been my dead grandfather.

I remember a dream where I heard a song by Kate Bush that never actually existed. I listened to her entire catalog of songs on the off-chance that it was a song I had heard but couldn't remember - nope, it was just in my head.

It's weird, knowing you've heard something made by someone else that will never actually exist.

Was a little drunk last night, high, and I took some 5-htp before bed. Got a crazy vivid dream where I met a dream girl. Can't tell you what her face looked like, but she had a great body and blonde hair (not really my preference in real life), but she was so down to fuck. We had crazy dream sex in the middle of a party on like a convertible limo cruisin' down the street.

The other half of this dream was spent running from the cops because I harbored a fugitive toon, Roger Rabbit (fell asleep to this movie like a week ago). That freaky judge from the movie was chasing after me.

Interesting side note, I had a recurring nightmare as a young child where this same judge would break into my house and I runaway through some parallel haunted house-ass dimension in my closet.

Anyway tl;dr post the last dream you had.

Pic related. Best estimate of the dream girl minus the beefy arms

Hello me from 4 years ago.

My most recent dream involved trying to climax from oral but it hasn't been the same since back in the day.

Long story short, even if I try to force things, it never seems to either last long enough for me to get to a point, or it just takes forever for me to get there before waking up disappointed
