      Thumbs up Greetings

      So, uh... I'm new to this website so I figured I might aswell introduce myself because I plan to stick around. Not sure what the community here is like, but so far I like what I see. You all seem pretty chilled guys/gals/(other?)

      So yeah, I found this website through an interest in lucid dreaming and achieving lucidity. I've yet to have a lucid dream of my own, though. The closest I came was changing a dream character's appearance (to be more... aesthetically pleasing, let's say). I done this successfully, and on some level I knew I was dreaming; but alas, my logical brain was nowhere to be found and I done nothing about it. I then woke up shortly after... perhaps because of the subconscious semi-realisation? If I woke up from that, I'd hate to think how quickly I'd wake up in a fully conscious realisation! Suffice to say, I woke up very frustrated.

      I'm specifically interested in Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming and its effects. I've tried several time but I get scared when I start to see hypnogogic imagery and the feeling of a malevolent presence in my room, and force myself out of it. I'm thinking of riding it out but the tales of the hypnogogic hallucinations terrify me. A YouTuber (GizEdwards, check him out) who makes videos on lucid dreaming claims he saw the girl from 'The Ring', so it's kinda put me off a bit! To keep this thread from being a boring tale of my uneventful experiences, does anyone have any advice on this?

      So, that about wraps things up, I guess. Looking forward to seeing you all around.

      TL;DR: Hello. I'm new. I like this site. Bye.

      Welcome to DV

      As to he hypnagogic imagery, i would just advise you to keep a clear mind about the fact that they are simply not real. I have never experienced anything scary during these phases, but i would say that i am 100% sure that the girl from The Ring wasn't actually there. It's usually misconceptions which are tossed around to say that you WILL see these images and sometimes some people don't. These images are just images

      Anyway, enjoy the site, it truly is a great community

      Oh, I know they're just hallucinations and not actually there. It's just, the site of them alone will be enough to scare me. I know they won't be able to physically harm me, it's just a lot of experiences sound rather unpleasant despite they fact you're not touched physically, only mentally.

      Hey Harvo, and welcome to Dreamviews!

      I've not done this, but people have guides for WILDs and they say you can control the HI. Also you should'nt keep listening to people's scary stories, as it influences you and if you're scared you'll see something evil, chances are you will.

      Anyway though, good luckwith your lucid dreams! They get longer and more controllable the more you have too, so you should look forward to that!

      Hi, welcome to DV!
      I kinda know how you feel, when I was little, I've had recurring nightmares about that girl. I had to walk up to the dvd player to turn the movie off, hoping the girl would just get sucked back in or something...
