Asked: [Lucid Dreaming] How to lucid without sleep peralysis?
I have been in a few lucid dreams, usually through DILD, but rarely I get sleep peralysis. I GET SO SCARED. I KNOW ITS DUMB TO GO ALL CAPS BUT SERIOUSLY, I'm A BOY BUT IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY. it seems every time I get it i need a new way to leave it, but I think i found out a good way to leave it. Mmost people, including me, just nudge around, trying to move, but that happens in dreams so it does nothing, so here's the trick: build up your enery in your dominent arm.tighten your muscles and…….PUNCH!!!!!!! The jerk will awake you. This is called a hypnotic jerk.What are your ways to leave sleep peralysis and go into a lucid dream. I hope my technique helped anyone with this problem.I just understand the amazing feeling of having fun in a Lucid dream, and hopefully, you can too!!
I'm sorry you're having bad experiences with sleep paralysis. The thing is, you're going to be in sleep paralysis no matter what you do. Everyone goes into it when they fall asleep to prevent them from acting out their dreams.
If you should happen to get stuck in sleep paralysis, just change your breathing pattern, for example, start breathing really fast. It will always wake your body up because it senses there's something wrong and needs to check if everything's okay.
As for moving into a lucid dream, I just let myself drift through the stages while staying aware. I picture a dream scene in my head, and after a short while, I start to zoom in on it.
You might actually overcome the feelings of paralysis after you've mastered lucid dreaming.
Okay, here is a tactic I'm going to teach you. It will take time and work but it will pay and this is something that I know from experience.
When you lie down to go to sleep, close your eyes and imagine a place where you really want to be…real or fictitious, doesn't matter. Try to imagine yourself as actually physically being there and begin to repeat this affirmation, I NOW HAVE A BLISSFUL AND LONG LASTING LUCID DREAM."
You must repeat this affirmation around 100x while doing the visualization exercise and it must be the last thought on your mind before you fall asleep, otherwise, you will fail. After about one month, you'll begin to notice how your dreams are becoming more vivid, after about 5 or 7 months you'll be able to gain full control of your dream. And you MUST practice every single time you lie down to go to sleep. This is a "mental power" that you're developing and there is absolutely no overnight success.
Your lucid dreams are much like HD television, in the sense that everything in your dream will have a very crisp appearance. So crisp that the physical reality that you're used to living in will seem really dull. Within about one year of practice you'll be a "master lucid dreamer," and you won't have to continually repeat affirmations to have the lucid dreams that you want to have.
Here is another technique that I'd swear to. Go find a new age bookstore or pagan shop in your city, or maybe go into the crafts dept. in a fabric store and purchase one "amethyst crystal." Place this amethyst crystal under your pillow-inside of your pillow case. I know this sounds corny but I swear to you that crystals do generate a substance known as orgone. Mediums have their psychic power because they are more in tune with orgone or prana as its called in the east. Just lie there with your amethyst crystal under your head while you're sleeping, and this will aid you in your quest with lucid dreaming.
Also, you might want to buy a notebook and use it to record your dreams with as much grueling detail as possible. This will help you pay attention to your dreams while you're dreaming and train your brain to remember the dreams more accurately.
Life in your lucid dream world will feel even more real than physical reality and you can even radically slow down time in your dreams and stay in there for long periods.
