    I dream through my own eyes the vast majority of the time.
    You want to sit down but you sold your chair.
    So you just stand there.

    I had sleep paralysis twice on Saturday, however I was facing my sofa, eyes were open and I thought my Dad was in the room (not 'cause I saw/heard him, I just thought he was for whatever reason).

    I only ever get it when I'm literally sooooo tired, but I'm drifting off to sleep, yet waking myself up constantly. And I'm usually too tired to really care?

    In all honesty though, reading about it has made me more scared of it, then experiencing it :/ thanks intranet.

    Dreams can be in both first and third person.

    Here's tips to see if you're dreaming (ie to go into a lucid dream, a state where you know you're dreaming):

    -Pinch yourself. If it doesn't hurt, you're in a dream.
    - Pinch your nose. If you can breath without using your mouth, you're in a dream.
    - Look at a digital watch. Look away, then look back. The time will have abnormally changed, or the watch will have disapered completely. this doesn't work for analogue watches, as they generally tend to stay the same time.
    - Look in a book. Books seldom have any text in dreams, but close it, and open it again. It will have changed completely.

    Lol my dreams are always in first person. I don't remember a single dream ever being in third. My dreams are usually about what I DON'T stress myself with. Like if I'm thinking of something small on Tuesday, I'll dream about it on Thursday.

    Darren, try to relax a little. I remember that a long time ago you said you had that fear about zombie apocalypse. Maybe that's the only cause of it?

    My dreams seem to be sometimes first-person, sometimes third-person.



    I never add friend codes.

    Always first-person for me, but it's usually not always me that I'm controlling in the dream.. I'll likely be someone else in first-person, as in living that person's life.

    Rarely do I ever have a dream where I'm as a "floating camera" controlling myself in third-person view (e.g like a video game).

    I don't think I've ever had a third-person dream, nor have I ever been someone else in a dream (that would be nuts). Additionally, you guys actually control yourself in your dream? I always thought the 'pinch yourself' thing was a joke. I don't commonly have dreams, though.

    I had one of the best dreams that I can ever remember last night. It was with a very good friend of mine that I once dated, except it wasn't what I would expect the dream to be about (...). We were alone, and we were just talking, enjoying each other's presence, and then I asked her if she would like to dance, as there was conveniently some very nice music playing in the background the whole time. It was very private.

    I found myself trying to get back to the dream once I woke up. Do you guys do this? I've fallen back to sleep and restarted the same dream from where I left off like 3 times in a row before. Sadly, it doesn't always work.

    If you question the fact that you are awake throughout the day when you know when you are awake, you will eventually remember to check in your dream, and you will shortly discover that you are obviously in a dream. But it's pretty hard to not just wake up after that, but there are certain techniques which you can use to stay dreaming(I think spinning in circles helps for some reason).

    Lucid dreams are the shit. You can do all kinds of crazy stuff. It's really weird if you try to walk through a mirror, you end up in the most random of places. Only had 2 in my life, one of which I kind of went ADD and forgot that I could do anything I wanted and ended up trying to convince people in my dream that they were in a dream the whole time.

    True, good sir, spinning does indeed help. With most lucid dreams, the main issue is waking up very quickly once you've realised you're dreaming (or having a false awakening- ie you dream that you wake up).

    Yes, I get that a lot. I love dreams when you dream about someone you fancy- although something I've noticed is that they tend to leave before the end of the dream. So, a girl would be there in the beginning of a dream but will have gone by the end.

    There are methods to repeat the same dreams, but none of them work very well.
