      Greetings!

      You can just call me Sten if not my full screen name. What brings me to this forum are my frequent nightmares: I'm plagued by horrific dreams and have been since I was a child. My dreams are not always terrible, but when they are bad, they hit extremely hard. After many years of this, I've decided not to just sit there and take it, but actually do something about my poor mental state. So I've decided to not only analyze my own dreams - I'm doing actual therapy too, don't worry - but perhaps learn a thing or two about lucidity while I'm already journaling. The human mind is a fascinating thing, and I especially believe that dreams are the key to really understanding yourself. I also want to be a lightning wizard, even just once.

      In summary, I feel like this forum could do a lot of good for me, so thanks for having me.

      Hi, welcome to the forum. Glad to have you here!

      Lucidity is an excellent tool for overcoming nightmares. I have used lucidity to help overcome trauma related issues. It is amazing what you can do with a positive and curious mindset while lucid dreaming.

      Anyway, good luck! Perhaps you would like to check out our Tasks of the Month. Or... perhaps you'd like to discover your inner wizard powers by joining our Superhero team for the Tasks of the Year. Also, feel free to check out the Lucid Dreaming Book Club.

      Welcome!!

      How long have you been Journaling? Do you record beyond a record of just your dreams? Like sleep times, sleep quality, distractions, level of health, techniques used, sleep environment, hormonal cycles, diet, sleeping arrangements (partner/alone, etc.), and any other relevant factors?

      Welcome, Sten!

      Couple of years ago I combined autosuggestion and lucid practice to get rid of most of my bothersome dreams, so this is something I highly recommend. Write down the things you want to achieve and repeat like a mantra throughout the day and around sleep time.
      Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

      Welcome Sten!

      It's so cool to say "Welcome Sten!" since never in my lifetime have I met anyone else that shares the name of my uncle; so that's cool!

      Welcome, Sten! As others have said, you are at the right place. Best of luck to you on overcoming your nightmare experiences. Lucidity is a great way to accomplish that, as MoonageDaydream said
