Subject: alternitive world

I have dreams in the same place all of the time. They started to get more intense about two years ago. Even if the location is new to me, I will know where I am in relation to the rest of the world I’ve dreamed up. They take place in stores (with two particularly  sketchy shopping centers), houses, apartments, schools, a beach, or just out on the streets. This world is always a little uncomfortable because I know it’s dangerous. However by this point I know it so well I could draw a map of it.

The people all look like people I know but do not act the same. I recognize my friends and follow them hoping that they’ll make me feel safe in the world. They rarely do but I’m always too afraid to leave them because I’ve learned that I don’t like to be alone here or things get scary. I’ll get lost and haunted or nearly die.

In all of my dreams I have goals that I end up receiving and have to fulfill. If I end up not accomplishing my goal, when I wake up I will most likely feel worried and frantic all day. These missions will be anything from stopping a killing and saving a friend, to going to a store because I just need to go there.

They are very vivid and I feel allot of intense emotions while there that stick when I wake-up, even if I’m just remembering a dream I’ll get the same feeling I had in the dream.

Is this lucid dreaming and if so, how do I control it?

Lucid Dreaming Stories: Hey China thanks for submitting your story to us. Sorry but this would not be considered a lucid dream. It’s more of a vivid recurring dream. In a lucid dream you would know that you are dreaming and gain complete control over the alternative world. You would not be scarred of it or worried about completing missions in it because you would know that it is not real and just a dream. Once you became lucid you will be able to change the scenery and fly around or do whatever you like.

Keep working at it and you will eventually have a lucid dream. 🙂

Maybe your afraid of the outside world not your dreams, you must be felling more safe inside you dreams and when your out of the dream you feel alone, have faith, make new friends and spend more time with family. don’t be scared of not making new friends we all have to start off somewhere.
