      Thumbs up

      I used to kill myself, and/or "become weight less", to be able to wake up.. (I can be stuck in dreams for years in earthly-time measure.)

      Then one "day"/night, I could not kill myself. And I stayed in the dreamscape, until my father tried to prove to me that it was not a dream, (which of course it was,) by driving the car of a 'cliff' and then down over a stream, and in to a forest, and back out again, screaming of joy, (admitting that it was indeed a dreamscape,) ... ending with a jump with the car, and the weightless-ness... Closed my eyes, in the car, and had a strange position as we was going up, about to come back down again... Which I had (the very same position,) as I opened my eyes in my bed. (After experiencing the ‘weightlessness’ at the peak of the jump.)

      I tried to kill myself by jumping head first from the 3'rd floor. But, I hit the ground as if I was an opposing magnet.

      Anyways; After years and years of this, I finally found, that going to sleep there, is almost the very same as going to sleep here…

      I know who I am, as I become...

      Wow, I'm sorry to say that I can't relate. What you have is very interesting indeed, if you could leave at will, then that would be something everyone would envy. I wish I could offer you more advice than to try drinking caffeine before bed, but I'm not even sure if that'd help.

      You're saying you were stuck in your dream for years?

      Quick question though, "Why would you want to wake up?" I mean, a lot of people here (including me sometimes) struggle with making their dreams last longer. It seems like your dreams that last for "years" would be a blessing!

      I&#39;ve only ever had one time where i had trouble waking up/ "out" of a dream. I was experimenting with a task involving a mirror. I was staring at myself in the mirror when i started to sprout all these extra arms and legs... then suddenly I had second, more massive head right in the middle of my torso... It was pretty cool looking... but when i went to look away from the mirror... i think that i believed that my dreambody had taken the form of what i was seeing in the mirror... and icouldn&#39;t move at all... i struggled for a couple of minutes really straining myself before i finally admitted defeat and willfully woke myself from the dream.

      But that&#39;s some crazy ass shit you&#39;re dealing with GOMP&#33;&#33; Reminds me a lot of the movie Waking Life where the character keeps getting killed and/or waking up believing that he has really woken up... only to discover he is inside of yet another dream... again and again and again... until finally, at the end of the movie... he let&#39;s go of this car door handle and floats off into infinity... which is really just a metaphor for letting go of his attachment... So maybe what&#39;s keeping you inside the dreams for "so long" is some sort of deep seeded attachment issue that you have with the dreamscape you inhabit.

      Clark_Bennon: I do not try… But, what you describe there is pretty much what I do.
      I “go to bed in dreams”/&#96;close my eyes´ and “drift off”, just like I do in this reality.

      lespaulsRcoo
      & ErikSter: Yes. I even “lived out” entire life times.

      Lunalight: Might be so for you. But, for example: if everybody in a dreamscape has woke up. (And are no longer there.) Then I may find it boring to stay there.

      I learned to keep the dreams short, in fact as short as possible&#33;

      So much easier not to forget about …

      busFACTORx: How do you “wilfully wake yourself from the dream.”?

      That is what I am very interested in.

      Usually I will want to stay in my LDs. But recently I had an issue during an Lucid that made me want to wake up.

      I was in extreme need to pee. It felt so uncomfortable, and I couldn&#39;t stand not being able to relief the pressure. So I found some dreamcharacter to have sex with, to wake me up from excitement, but that didn&#39;t work. I tried lots of stuff, but I was still unable to wake up... Eventually I woke up naturally, though, and could finally take a pee in the toilet.

      My conclusion from this is: drinking 0.5 litres of liquid close to bed time = bad idea.

      Well gomp, im not exactly sure how to describe my active methodology... I am able to willfully wake myself up because i am so aware of the fact that i am actually "asleep", but im not sure how to desribe the mental process in a mechanistic fashion that would allow you to emulate it... I guess i just tell myself i want to wake up.

      Also, I will sometimes wake up out of dreams if i get too excited (sadly this happens frequently just before im about to get my groove on... or should i say... in the groove) or if i try to assert too much control over the dream...

      I am the same as busFACTORx I just know how to wake myself up. I&#39;m not sure if this is right because all I do is basically on a sub-conscious level to wake myself up. But try just imagining yourself in your bed, in your room. waking up from your dream. If this doesn&#39;t work, have sex and orgasm, you should usually wake up after that or during. The only problem is you&#39;ll have a mess to clean up. lol.

      But it still baffles me as to why you would want to wake up from a lucid dream. People spend years training not to wake up so soon.

      I do not try...

      Sorry. I see "trying" as a mere excuse to not admit that one failed...
      Have you ever "made it", and then said, "I tried"? ... Or do you only use it when you do not admit failure?
      I am just curious...

      I am already "imagining" that... (The fact that I can feel my "asleep body", is what makes it so easy to stay in the dreamscapes for ever.)

      Have sex and orgasm, just is that to me in a dream. (I am aware of my/the sleep paralysis.)

      End it to soon, and you can sleepwalk, sleep-talk, wet the bed, etcetera...
      End it to late, and you can feel stuck, have weird dreams, etcetera ...

      Thank you for the advices though..

      And that I can understand&#33;
      I guess I am a natural.
      And if/when you have spent years and years, in dreams, and/or even eons/life-times... Then let&#39;s talk&#33; (?)

      I bet you&#39;ll see why I want out at times.

      Also: The shorter the dream, the easier it is to "not forget it", and if one forgets it, it is even easier to recall...

      When I read the instructions on this site I was really worried about this but people told me they&#39;d never heard of it and that I shouldn&#39;t worry. If you really want to get out, then try thinking of bedroom. If that doesn&#39;t work then just lie down and try to get to sleep

      I used to be just like you, seamed I&#39;d be stuck for years, used to commit suicide and all that, yeah I pretty much had the same problem.

      heh, I remember one dream I became lucid and imeadietly dove head first into an open fernace, I saw a very vivid skeleton right before waking up, just stairing me in the face.

      I think The more I feared having lucids the more they would happen, I remember just waiting in fear well going asleep, and just like nothing had happened I&#39;d be in a lucid dream, no time had passed, it felt I hadn&#39;t even fell asleep, it was like I was looking around the room and I blinked and I was in a dream.



      I wanna be the very best
      Like no one ever was
      To lucid dream is my real test
      To control them is my cause

      I still don&#39;t really understand what you mean by "years". Do you really feel you spend years in dream? What you do in your dreams then? I didn&#39;t get it. Please tell me about it.

      It&#39;s actually really hard to open your eyes in the middle of a dream. There&#39;s really no secret to it, just open your eyes. When you&#39;re really tired it&#39;s as if your eyelids a glued shut so it can be hard

      Then I shall do what I can to see if I can help you help yourself to get it.
      And, tell more specifically about it.

      BTW: I cannot help others directly, but I can do so indirectly… Meaning, like helping others by sharing how I helped myself.


      By a ‘year’ I mean the ‘time’ (as a measure) that the earth takes to complete an ellipse a round the sun…

      So, by “years” I mean many lapses round the sun.


      Indeed I do, (feel and sense in general, that I spend years in dreams, even lifetimes.).

      For example;

      I go to bed tonight, when I am tired enough to just want sleep.
      There I find a comfortable position, in witch I listen to the music and imagining the potentials of the moment.
      (I listen to music 24 hours, 7 days a week.)
      Then/There, I lose sense of my earth-body as it feels paralysed, heavy, and thus ‘no feel’ at all, just the knowledge that it is there…

      Now, only my imagination, seems to be the limit, thus I can recreate the bedroom, (in this example), and literally just ‘stand up’ from the bed where I know I lie. Then just to be sure I might imagine that there is going to be something different about the apartment, to remind me of the fact that this is only a dream.

      Then I could go and fly of to distant regions of our universe, meet other forms of life, etcetera …

      I could stay on earth, and wake up the next day, after spending, say 5 hours sleeping.
      Yet, still be in the initial dream, recalling how to utilise the magnetic field of earth, in union with my own. Then I could spend years in the dream not even recalling the fact that I still lie in my bed, imagining…
      …. doing ‘what ever’ for the ‘period’ it takes, then maybe as a 145 year old man, I recall the fact that this is all a dream, during some kind of human-head-extraction of DMT, (which is extracted using smoke, from a human that has devoted its life to being such a DMT donor.)

      Upon taking this DMT in ‘what ever way’ would be the most sound; I would as mentioned realize that I lie in my bed, and start feeling the familiar surroundings. My body, my music, my home&#33;

      And that should about cover it? I’ll elaborate if needed.

      Waking myself up is the only thing I&#39;ve been able to do in a lucid dream.

      A weird oddity indeed.
      What happens to me is that when my eyes get closed (due to whatever reasons) I wake up.

      Funny fact is that this happens slowly, as if i&#39;m transferring back to my body.

      So as a suggestion, close your eyes the next time you dream, and feel as if you&#39;re about to wake from a long night sleep. And then, hope you actually do wake up

      Also, how fast does a lapse around the sun go in your dreams?

      I&#39;ve only had one lucid dream I couldn&#39;t get out of. I was sick in high school with the flu and fell asleep in bed, to wake up in my dream in the exact same place. Nothing was different and nothing was out of place except I knew it was a dream and no one else existed in the world. I ran around the house looking for my parents or my brother, to no avail.

      After what seemed like a couple days all by myself in my house, I started to scream at the top of my lungs to myself, in order to wake myself up. It took what felt like hours and hours of screaming at the top of my lungs before I finally woke up.

      It turned out to be a 2 hour nap during midday, and I was completely soaked in sweat.


      Being stuck in one of those dreams is not always the best feeling.

      Disclaimer: This post brought to you by an humble newbie

      I&#39;m really intrigued by those "lifetime" dreams... obviously, those of us who didn&#39;t have such dreams, can&#39;t really grasp what you&#39;re talking about.

      I&#39;m going to ask the same question than Nerte, to you and LucidDreamGod... being more specific: when you say, for example, "145 years later, you may remember this is a dream" : do you actually have 145 years worth of life story to write down? With each main period, then each month, then specific events of days... without resorting to "etc etc, then doing this for the next year, then being ruler of the universe for 10 years..."
      I couldn&#39;t immediately recall each day of my own life, of course but I could refine gradually, until most of the days (at least those where notable events occured).

      Or is it more like an ellipsis in a novel or a movie, where only a few words are used to tell the spectator "the next week"/"1 year later"/"100 years later"...

      In the first case, it would be strange, because your brain would need to work at 1000 more speed and would overload (or, we directly go to the "Beyond Dreaming" forum).
      In the second case, it would be more a "hypnagogic time distortion" where you feel time without actually living it (the same way we "know" things in dreams, like "I knew this door was forbidden" without having learnt it before: an implanted memory) . Then finding a method to wake up would be useless, because you could wake up 1 second after your lucid dream starts, but still get the (instantaneous) illusion of 100 years having passed.
      Maybe the same way we learn to control our dream-"image generator", you need to control your "time-generator" ?

      My adopter gothlark does say he can recall eachday, I beleive it&#39;s alittle overwhelming at first but he said he got used to it, I had a 3 day long lucid dream and it didn&#39;t feel like I could recall everything, I remember driving in some of my dreams, I just get in the car and the next thing I remember is being at my destination.

      I will tell you my theory as well as gothlarks, we think it&#39;s just false memorys, certain experiences might be real time, but your brain fills in the rest with false memorys if you have ever had a dream and had a false memory you would know what it feels like, it can be pretty cool, just think if you could make your own false memorys like gothlark does.

      To lucid dream is my real test
      To control them is my cause

      I&#39;m really intrigued by those "lifetime" dreams... obviously, those of us who didn&#39;t have such dreams, can&#39;t really grasp what you&#39;re talking about.

      I&#39;m going to ask the same question than Nerte, to you and LucidDreamGod... being more specific: when you say, for example, "145 years later, you may remember this is a dream" : do you actually have 145 years worth of life story to write down? With each main period, then each month, then specific events of days... without resorting to "etc etc, then doing this for the next year, then being ruler of the universe for 10 years..."
      I couldn&#39;t immediately recall each day of my own life, of course but I could refine gradually, until most of the days (at least those where notable events occured).

      Or is it more like an ellipsis in a novel or a movie, where only a few words are used to tell the spectator "the next week"/"1 year later"/"100 years later"...

      In the first case, it would be strange, because your brain would need to work at 1000 more speed and would overload (or, we directly go to the "Beyond Dreaming" forum).
      In the second case, it would be more a "hypnagogic time distortion" where you feel time without actually living it (the same way we "know" things in dreams, like "I knew this door was forbidden" without having learnt it before: an implanted memory) . Then finding a method to wake up would be useless, because you could wake up 1 second after your lucid dream starts, but still get the (instantaneous) illusion of 100 years having passed.
      Maybe the same way we learn to control our dream-"image generator", you need to control your "time-generator" ?

      It is just as if living in parallel realities.

      By a year I mean a year. Day by day, indeed…
      But, as you said, no more detailed than I recall life here on earth in our reality.

      To put it in smaller numbers, so it might be easier to grasp, I can say that the whole consept literally is like spending 5 minutes in a dreamscape, in a 1-minute daydream.
      And/Or the opposite; spending 5 minutes asleep (dreaming), and only a fraction of 1 second in the dream…

      And to answer the one who asked: "Also, how fast does a lapse around the sun go in your dreams?"
      As said, a year is a year, but it might be interesting to note that when there is no earth to measure time with, the time spent &#39;there&#39; is not always as easy to describe.
      I know who I am, as I become...
