      Red face Fresh Met!!! - Just another Rookie

      Hi there, how's everyone doing?
      First of all, I would like to apologise right away for my possible grammar mistakes but I'm not from a English-spoken country.. (I'm from Portugal )

      As you may or may not have noticed I'm new around here and I don't know very much about all this, but I've been investigating and I find it all very interesting.
      I first heard about it a few of days ago while watching some silly tv series (and I'm not counting with Inception because I though that was totally impossible), and then decided to investigate. I'm really committed in doing this not only because it sounds F****** AMAZING but also because I have loads of nightmares since I was little, and I assume it might be a great way of fighting them.

      I have a couple of questions.. and I was wondering if someone could answered them.
      1. So you have lucid dreams.. when you wake up in the morning, will you feel like you have had a great night of sleep, or will you feel tired?
      2. When you are already asleep and you become lucid, is it just like you woke up? In your mind?
      3. (the last one I promise) Is there any topic in this forum regarding films related to lucid dreaming? Or can anyone indicate me a few?

      Thanks a lot for your patience.

      Mercurio

      Hey Murcurio, welcome to Dreamviews! Your grammar is great, don't sweat it!

      Lucid dreaming is definitely a good way to combat nightmares. If you practice being aware of the fact that you could be dreaming at any moment, and do reality checks, you'll eventually become lucid in a nightmare just because of the impossibility of what is happening. You'll realize that there's no way you could be drowning in a river you haven't swam in before, or falling into a dark hole. Being "lucid" is basically just being conscious in the dream, but once you're lucid, you can do anything you want!

      After waking up from a lucid dream, there should be no noticeable difference in your energy or tiredness. If anything, you'll feel more energetic and excited than the night before, because you just had an awesome dream! Personally, I just can't stop thinking of my lucids once I wake up from them.

      There's different ways of becoming lucid in a dream, or inducing a lucid dream. You can enter the dream directly from a waking state, which is the WILD (wake induced lucid dream) technique. The more common method is called DILD (dream induced lucid dream), and this is when you're already dreaming, and you suddenly become aware once the dream has already started. The first time you become lucid, it's definitely like you've just "woken up", so to speak. You might get a rush of excitement, and an epiphany or realization that you're actually in a dream. At first, sometimes you might become so excited that you wake up, but that problem disappears as you have more lucids.

      There isn't a specific forum for films related to lucid dreaming, but you can check out the Entertainment section of the site. It has threads about music, movies, shows, and lots of other stuff. You can start a thread of your own, or look around for threads about lucid dreaming in film that have already been made.

      A good place to start researching and getting set for your first lucid is the Dreamviews Wiki. There's user tutorials and lots of information. I've also compiled the basic information, along with links to tutorials and other pages, into a guide called The Beginner's Guide to Lucid Dreaming. It might help, too!

      If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. And good luck!
