Post image for A Guide To Lucid Dreaming

I’ve always had trouble remembering my dreams. In the morning, instead of rising with crisp post-sleep visuals, I’ll wake with almost no recollection of where my mind may have wandered to during the night. Read more »

When I was little, I dreamt dreams that filled me with angst, confusion or boredom and I couldn't handle them anymore and then I thought 'I want to wake up! I want to wake up!' and this means I knew I was dreaming if not at the entire process of the dream then those few moments where I said 'No more of that!' and I knew I had to wake up to get away from this dream! I remember one or two times I changed the surroundings of my dream if I am sick of it but that happens very rarely and I have so much conscioussness that I tend to wake up not long after it because I regain more and more consciousness by thinking this is a dream so eventually I wake up. I think that lucid dreaming can be very tiring because of that and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Sometimes I make happen something I want to happen but usually it is unconsciously done! And then I think "Weird that happened exactly what I had in mind!". But this is your dream you idiot! I usually don't remember my dreams, sometimes I remember details and sometimes even more details but that's usually the latter part of the dream just before I wake up or it may also be previous details that shocked me so that I can remember them. Often those bits I remember are either my subconscious trying to tell me something about my life and sometimes my remembered dreams are prophetic or happening. So I think there's a reason I remember them! My grandmother watches prophetic dreams all the time mostly for myself and for others too. That's the dreams she usually remembers. And the event she's dreaming usually happens the very same day or the next day or it happened and she didn't know it but she saw it in her sleep anyway! Sometimes it takes longer but definitely it happens! It's weird!!! I think this experience of mine will also be interesting to you: When I was little I frequently dreamt that they were chasing me (monsters etc). I couldn't see them but I saw their shadow or heard them or I just run because I knew something was chasing me I did not dare to look at. At one time I was so sick and tired of always running I thought "I am sick and tired of always running" (maybe I knew they were dreams at that moment I'm not sure) " Whatever it is, I'll deal with it and I don't care what happens next!" . When I said that I faced my persecutors and they were cute children's toys that welcomed me and smiled at me!!! Then I woke up and since then I've never seen drems like that again!!! :) With the exception of an occasional mass shooter who doesn't want to kill only me but that's rare!

I love creating my dreams. I don't really know if mine count as lucid dreaming, because I do them when I'm just laying in bed and not quite asleep. Once I have it all set up, I can do whatever I want and go wherever I like. Then, once I fall asleep, I'm usually still in that dream, so I know I'm just dreaming! I love doing it. :) Thanks for this post! I really liked it! :)

This just made me very, very, very homesick for my apartment in Brooklyn. It really is a city that makes you fall in love with its hidden secrets, its shortcomings, and even yourself, and it shaped me in a way that I'll never regret. <3 dani http://blog.shopdisowned.com

Shoes are the most important part of fashion. You have clicked the images very beautifully. Personally I like the second image with brown shoes. It is also better to know what is happing around you in the fashion world. If you like the events such as Oscars and Emmy, than MBL Group is well established style assistant to celebrities

Meadow's and Candy's are my favorites, but what happened to Sandy? She was my favorite of the bunch, and it seems that she disappeared. So now, I guess my favorite is Meadow.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.

So very excited for you - a long awaited adventure always feels that little bit more incredible. I've only been to Amsterdam once but I absolutely adored it. Head out of the city centre (where the red light district etc is) and into Nine Streets and the Jordaan. I've actually just posted about my trip over on my blog - www.mlle-milly.blogspot.co.uk (well, the other week). You should definitely try La Perla pizza - we stumbled across it but were questioned as to how we knew about it as it is apparently the best pizza in Amsterdam! (I can totally agree). The design stores in Nine Streets and the canals around it are the best. I had incredible blue cheese and celeriac soup at Humphrey's. Be sure to hunt down the Begijnhof - it's the most magical little place right in the heart of the city (but it doesn't feel like that's where you are). It's so sweet - and lots of history (explained when you're there). I also loved Cafe Papeneiland in the Jordaan. And there's another coffee/produce place that we fell in love with which I'll have to hunt out for you...! Favourite museums were the Van Gogh & the Rijksmuseum - I guess they're sort of must-dos if you're going for the city's history & art/culture! Have an incredible trip - hope to hear about it! x

Finally something I can do to make my breakfast even more colourful! Those biscuit sandwiches seem both healthy and delicious, a combination which hardly goes hand by hand.
Claire -Aug 17, 2014, 1:39PM
I just tried this as a breakfast for lunch meal (since i'm too groggy to be cooking in the morning) and it was amazing! My biscuits crumbled a little but that may have been since i let it sit for a while before baking so the butter may have melted some, but besides that it was delicious! I highly recommend trying this recipe :)
