      I've stopped lucid dreaming on purpose

      Hi everyone, nice website!

      Anyway, I, for a very long time, had extemeley vivid lucid dreaming with complete control of my surroundings, abilities, I could, for example, summon dragons to some to my aid if fighting monsters.. anything I wanted.

      I taught myself this technique without having read any books.

      But I noticed I started creating what I call subroutines... I always had lots of bad dreams and nightmares, so to minimize those, I created little programs so to speak that when something bad was starting to happen, the dream would change.

      Anyway, I got to the point where I had so much complete, vivid control of my dreams, I got bored! I ended up with nights of me just sitting on a throne, in the middle of an endless grey mist, with nothing to do, because there were no more challenges.

      I decided this boredom was worse than the nightmares, so I gradually reversed my lucid dream awareness and control mechanisms.

      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

      Re: I've stopped lucid dreaming on purpose

      Hey

      Welcome to the site! You have the honour of being our first registered user (other than myself of course)! I just put the forum up today, so hopefully things will pick up. I'm a little surprised actually, because judging by our logs, we get quite a lot of traffic here. Maybe people are just waiting for others to post?

      Anyway, so you're bored with your dreams huh? That seems almost like a contradiction to me. Indeed, there are an infinite number of things you can do and experience w/ your dreams, thus it's impossible you've done it all. You could imagine yourself in various movie roles, or explore the universe or the ocean's depths, or even imagine yourself as God. Or, if you're interested in something more intellectually stimulating, you can attempt problem solving.

      On a side note, I completely agree that purchasing books is unnecessary to attain the ability to lucid dream. In fact, I think I'll post a message about that.

      Yeah, it may seem impossible, but after having years of dreams "movie style", being able to do things like Neo in the "Matrix"... it's a problem that I had too much control, and I had to learn to let go of that control (well, most of it anyway) in order to bring back some challenges. I've done so many thing in my lucid dreams, from being a powerful wizard to some sci-fi hero saving the planet, to flying, walking through walls, being able to go back into past memories and vividly recall everything, for example I once dreamt (is that how you spell the past of dreaming? anyway) where I went back into a memory of an event that really happened... I was in the hallway during lunch break at high school, and I entered my body and the events of that lunch break played out exactly as the really did that day (nothing really special happened, so I'm not sure why this memory came up) but what was so wierd about this particular dream of a memory, was that there must have been close to a hundred kids in that hallway during lunch break, all in groups talking, and I could simultaneously hear what every kid was saying, even the ones that were on the far end of the hall, I could hear every word of every conversation... and understand all of it. It wasn't like the noise of hearing a crowd in real life, where you are aware of people talking but can't consciously tune into every conversation at once, but in this dream I could. It didn't put any strain on me at all or distract me in any way, but I could somehow keep track of everything that was said.... you would think I would need like ten brains in my head to be able to do that, but I did.

      Interesting...(of course, it's almost redundant to refer to one's dreams as interesting. ) Anyway, I still can't imagine becoming bored w/ one's ability to control his or her own dreams. Honestly, how can you tire of flying through the clouds? Perhaps you should move on to experimentation of some kind...dunno what...maybe searching for your lucky lotto numbers?

      Anyway, it should would be nice if some others joined the conversation here. (HINT, HINT)

      Well, I added a link to your site on my web BLOG, maybe that will help hehehe.

      Hmmm.... yeah, I should get back into lucid dreaming. It's tough right now, medications that I am on are leaving me with major insomnia, but I think gradually over the next weeks and months I'll casually try to regain lucid dream control, and try just having fun with it.

      I think why I got bored with it is because I think to much and get too philosphical about it... there's that phrase that, I'm sure I'm misquoting, but something like absolute power corrupts absolutely, and I think I had absolute power in my dreams and it corrupted my dreams.

      But, anywho, like I said I'll casually get back into the lucid dream control and just try to have fun and explore. This may also be good for me, becuase I am currently undergoing treatment for anxiety problems, and I may be able to gain some insight into my disorder via lucid dream exploration.

      New guy

      Hello, I just heard about this site from my fiance. I want to vote in the poll but I can't. I have never used one of these before, so I am a rookie. I am lucid dreamer, thought everyone was. It is so easy, I don't understand why everyone can't. BORED? Everytime they get boring. I make the dreams more realistic. It gets harder and harder to control a dream if you think you are in the real world. One time I had a dream inside of a dream. My father came home and woke me up. I couldn't tell if I was awake or not. Well, this is my first post, there will be more. Talk to you guys later.
      I'll hide in the shadows and attack in your dreams.

      Bored? how can u be bored?

      Well your bored eh? my belief is that u shouldn't have complete contol over a dream like having an empire ect. u should be someone without control of an empire and just explore your dream, find out everything u can before u wake up, or just have fun and fly around. of course i don't have the luxury of have a lucid dream at my will...

      Hey Neo. I am new here, but I can totally relate to your dilemma. I have been lucid dreaming for 32 years (I'm 38) and I can dig where your coming from. I have done it all. However, I did create a city known as the "dark place". Whenever I wake up here I know that there will be a confrontation. I try to keep it new enough that I don't suspect it before it happens (which last for about a few seconds). If there is a new adversary I shapeshift into it's form and retain it from that point on.

      So you mean that 'normal' dreams are better than lucid ones? I know that you're bored and all, but couldn't you just 'let go' of the control and just explore your kingdom?

      You could walk through the forests or explore the world underneath the sea surface...
      Oooooor... you could write a text about the things you've done in your lucids and show us

      anyway.. hope you find out what to do.
      hey

      nothing wrong with bringing up old threads...they can still provide new information to whomever has not read them.
      Each new day is a chance to turn it all around.

      Being bored with dreams is quite ridiculous to me, I don't see how anyone could ever be satisfied and say they are done, but I feel this way about just about everything so maybe it depends on one's personality. But whoa, first thread that's weird...

      Yes, I have often made the point that too much control simply turns off the Communication that is coming to us from our Higher Self -- Our Dream Mind. Dream Control is like talking to ourselves instead of listening to what Our Spirit might have to say to us.

      But I am surprised that your Dream Self let you get away with it. For most people who try to assert too much control, they fall into a syndrome of False Awakenings as their Dream Self tries to shake off the Control.

      But I suppose both your Will and Discernment were very strong, and your Dream Self intuited that all it really needed to do was to let you Win so that you could see for yourself your own hollow Victory.

      Tell me, has there been any Dreams of Reconciliation. Have any Dream Guides come forward to Patronize or Sponsor you as you come back into a true Dream Interaction. Or is it all just sundry Enemies, Dragons and Foes? I would think that after you abandoned your Throne in the Grey Mists and started wandering back, that you would have been met by some sort of a Wise Old Man Archetype who would have given you some bit of encouragement along with a heart felt Welcome.
