Lucid Dreams

For the past few months I've had many dreams in which I knew that I was dreaming. Since most were terrifying I even managed to extricate myself from them though not without difficulty. Sometimes I managed to wake myself up and on one occasion I dreamt that I woke up. Anyway, it's not something I talk about so I had no idea that it's a common phenomenon called Lucid Dreaming.

The past few days I've been researching Astral Travel as background material for a story I'm writing. The whole concept is fascinating but the best part is that I finally found an everyday explanation for something that I thought was weird. It's great to know that I'm not experiencing something inexplicable.

It makes me hope that many other things that seem insoluble will explain themselves in their own time.

Hey I'm not getting sleep. I came online thinking u'd be up fr sure. Why did u pck 2day to sleep? :p

Guess ur fascinated with these 'lucid' dreams. I think they sound a little frightening. From what u sd it soundd like they only are 'lucid' when they r nightmares. Thats not very nice.
