      Asmr

      Has anyone managed to trigger their ASMR in a lucid dream?

      What's an ASMR?
      I fill my heart with fire, with passion, passion for what makes me nostalgic. A unique perspective fuels my fire, makes me discover new passions, more nostalgia. I love it.

      It is Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR). Its a tingling sensation felt in certain parts of the body as a result of sensory stimulus.

      Edit: Dang, I got sniped!

      Odd. I think I might have been doing this for a while then. I can sort of make myself feel excited at will. It makes me want to make high-pitched shrieks too, for some ridiculous reason, but it feels good. Moreover, I can do it whenever I want. Not sure if that's the thing you are talking about though, seeing as the sensation isn't actually tingling or anything close to that.

      Sounds interesting, DeltaV. Can you tell me a bit more about how you induce it?

      Inducing it...
      Well, it's difficult to explain, kind of like explaining how to move an arm. My cold isn't helping either :<
      I could explain how I learned to control it, maybe that helps.
      I had some sort of freak reaction to darkness. It wasn't fear or a phobia or anything like that, just the hard-to-stop desire to run upstairs while shrieking. This is probably giving you a very silly mental image of me, so I'll assure you, it wasn't quite that silly. But of course, this was kind of annoying. So one time I just observed the whole process and feeling of it, and tried to reproduce it afterwards. Which worked, somehow. It might be something akin to stimulating amyglada, in which case google that, maybe that helps.
      I've done this with other things too. For example, I was sad once, observed it, and stopped crying manually. I can also now produce tears at will. I also managed to somehow stop my teeth from chattering during my cold, simply by observing it and messing around with the muscles.
      So yeah, maybe this helps.

      I do this . Damn that's really cool, I didn't know it had an official name. I've been working on inducing it a lot in dreams lately without waking up from it (for some reason I tend to wake up when it feels really good). It's also part of how I summon my dream guide. I induce my ASMR and then I give strong intention for them to appear and talk to me right now, and it seems to work a lot better when I'm feeling tingly and awesome all over. I practice inducing it daily in waking life as well, just as a kind of break or to clear any lingering emotions from thoughts. It starts out as a feeling of pressure on the crown of my head. I make that feeling go all the way down the back of my head and over my face, down my spine, all the way down to my feet. For some reason, when I do it I can feel pressure in my solar plexus as well as the crown of my head. Not sure why, just noticed that. What feels really good is making it pulsate in continuous cycles, makes me feel like I took some drugs.

      I do it slightly differently, this is not in dreams though.

      Basically I just breathe in cold air through my nose and exhale it slowly through my mouth as if you were smoking through your nose. Then after I do that I either close my eyes and just fully enjoy the sensation, or do it with my eyes closed already, then open them and try to read something, which makes it feel even better for some reason.

      I have no idea why it works, all I know is I've been doing it for years and it hasn't failed me, the colder the air, the more powerful the effect.

      I like that way, works for me too. I think I used to do that method too awhile ago! My way was slightly different, I would pretend I was breathing in love and exhaling anything I didn't want to feel and it would induce the ASMR. I think it's very interesting that colder air improves the effect for you, I'll have to try that.

      edit: I tried it with cold air and it was more powerful, not sure if it was placebo though (or if that even matters). Pretty cool stuff!

      Honestly even if it is placebo, it's all in your head so anything that actually works, works.

      Like I can only do it with a certain smell of the air and if the air is too warm it won't work, but if it's not from random chemicals sprayed in the air, those limits are all just in my mind.

      I don't try to push the limits though, other than trying to intensify the experience, since I feel like if you can do it all the time, it loses it's appeal. Plus I like the feeling of cold air so it adds to it anyway.

      People talking in a quiet voice (not whispering though) and demonstrating something do it for me. There are lots of ASMR vids on YouTube now.

      I checked out several ASMR videos, I had no idea they were so popular. I think it's interesting how all kinds of sounds and quiet voices could trigger that feeling in my body. It wasn't as powerful as when I trigger it in myself without any external stimuli required, but it can last longer because it doesn't require any effort on my part. Thanks for informing me.

      I still don't know this "feeling" that you feel, and I have watched many of the videos on YouTube that are related to it. Can someone describe it to me in clearly?

      I would try to describe is as that weird crawling feeling you get when your foot is asleep or something, but instead of it being painful, it feels good, and it basically goes all throughout your body. Also for me I can control the intensity of it, to being mildly strong and just a nice feeling, to basically putting me out for a minute or two, or just making me fall asleep.

      So it feels nice and relaxes you quite a bit.

      Also it takes over your whole sense of touch so you won't feel cold or anything around you, just that nice feeling.

      I honestly can't think of any other way of describing it other than that, and I know it's not that clear. Just think nice feeling =).

      You guys are freaks! lol just joking
      I would try it, but sounds, painful not nice.
      Anyways, I would love to learn how to induce feelings, and their intensity. Can this ASMR be a help? Like training wheels or something?

      Edit: I have strong Synesthesia. Does that help?

      ok i just heard of asmr but i think i do something like it in waking life as a sort of stress reduction technique. im not sure if its asmr but anyways whenever i am stressed or depressed i sometimes feel a slight tightening in my shoulders and back of my neck and really all across my back, if i massage my back and shoulders (especially my shoulder blades and the back of my neck) i get these waves of tingly feelings that feels really good and it goes up my spine to my head. it feels like i have a lot of built up "energy" in me and by massaging it is released. also DeltaV said they had the desire to run upstairs while shrieking, i dont have this feeling but i do have a feeling like i want to scream a really high pitched sound and release all the build up energy in me that way as well. but its not like i actually want to scream but more like i want to release the sound and energy from my mind its really weird. it doesn't sound like a scream when i release it from my mind its like a tone like a ringing sound that i make go higher in pitch and as i do so i can feel all pent up feelings being released. it usually takes a few minutes but i can get it out mentally by imagining it and feeling it. afterwards i feel very relaxed although a bit strange but i feel so much better. the massaging sends waves of a wonderful tingly feelings all over my back and my head and the releasing the sound is almost like im getting rid of all negative feelings in me, its quite effective for me personally although quite a bit strange.

      i really am wondering if i should post this, it all sounds crazy but i have to know, is this asmr? anyone else do this or something similar?

      Hello everyone.

      I've had it all my life, only to recently know what it is. For me It has always been external stimuli, in the form of somebody talking in a very specific way, taking into account also their voice tone and pitch, intonations and so on. I was surprised it even had a name, and the great number of videos on youtube about this.

      But for me it has to be natural, all those ASMR videos made for this don't do it. Instead, most of the medical examination videos work wonders on me, but depending of the person talking.

      The feeling is something like a relaxation that most of the times end in sleep, but with tingles in the head and sometimes in the body. I recall so vividyly the first time I noticed this: I was 5 or 6 and my dad sent me to the store to buy thumbtacks. I asked the lady, and she throws them on the counter and starts counting them ( I think I asked for 60-70). By the time she was finished I was melted. I still can relive that moment without problems.

      I was asking myself how can this help with LD in an effective way.

      I'm not sure if I've ever experienced it but I do have several moments where I felt something weird IRL.
      Sometimes when I sit at a computer for a long time I start shaking my own leg up and down out of boredom, the best way I can describe the feeling is that the vibration of the leg shuts down my sense for balance and I feel as if I'm floating in my chair.

      I'm the same as you, dalecooper. My "asmr trigger" seems to be quite fussy. The tone of voice is everything. The asmr vids on YouTube are good, but don't quite get me to the "oooh heaven!" point. It's usually at its best when I'm actually with the person and they talk softly (usually with an accent) and their demeanour is very relaxed and they have slow movements. The people who get asmr triggered properly by YouTube vids are very lucky!

      Bob Ross triggers asmr in many people. His vids have many of the well known triggers:
