A lucid dream is a dream during which the dreamer is aware of dreaming. During lucid dreaming, the dreamer may be able to exert some degree of control over the dream characters, narrative, and environment.

How often do you experience lucid dreaming? Please expand on this as much as you want and include your MBTI and enneagram type if you know it.

In my case, it happens rarely and when it does, the lucid dreams are more "slippery" so I have a hard time staying asleep when I know I'm dreaming. Sometimes I'll start trying to create stuff but I don't find it as exciting because I know I'm making it up. I find it more interesting when I don't know that I'm dreaming because I don't know what's going to happen next. Like getting immersed in a good movie.

However, there was one time recently that it went a bit differently. I realized I was dreaming. I was in a dark hotel room and there was a baby crying on the bed. When I realized I was dreaming, for some reason I started to panic a bit. I was afraid of the baby for some reason. But knowing that it's better to confront your fears in dreams (unless you're Will in Stranger Things and it's not really a dream :p), I decided to look at the baby instead of making myself wake up. Once I did, I realized that the baby was me some how. Like an inner knowing. Even though there was nothing other than the inner dream knowing to indicate that it was me. Then I immediately woke up.

Sometimes. It happens frequently during the end of a sleep cycle. I dream quite easily, can remember them well enough and sometimes dream lucidly. I've also been able to transition daydreams into real dreams but with keeping consciousness, but falling asleep in a daydream. (it's an advanced form of WILD (Wake Induced Lucid Dream). I tend to have long, frequent and intense REM phases in my sleep. My dreams are intense, vivid (but vague), very emotional, painful, weird, absurd and not logical at all. I've had dreams where I couldn't recognize my world anymore because it was too abstract, and it was nothing like i've ever seen before. I've had dreams with worlds that didn't made sense. I've had dreams where everything we know is reversed and reset, and something new is created with entirely new concepts, like i've had multiple dreams where a country were depicted as grocery shops (especially the USA), or even ideologies were like hypermarkets. That's an example of such a thing.

I can also recall dreams, using the DEILD method (Dream Exit Induced Lucid Dream), but losing lucidity soon, and then i have a continuation of a dream i've lost (or a sequence dream), sometimes minutes after i got very briefly awake. But i can also decide about what i'm going to dream, especially in the morning because i go straight into a dream. (using daydreams to decide the topic of the dream, but then consciously losing my consciousness). I've also experienced a lot of awesome nightmares (bad events that didn't feel bad at all) or dreams with premonition. I'm also not sure if i can hear in dreams (there is little to no talk), and i know that sometimes messages are given to me on a paper or a book. I also create the most weirdest rooms and houses and cities ever unconsciously. The decoration is always amazing, but the content is often very vague or bare. My dreams center on details and emotions.

We infp's are good in dreaming! We do it all the time!

I voted sometimes. I'm not entirely sure, but I think it happens somewhat often for me. It does feel that it's somewhat debatable, as sometimes it's when I'm already a little closer to being awake and I don't know how much of an influence that has.

I don't feel that I influence it so much as simply being softly aware that I am dreaming, but probably that does have an influence in itself!

I also tend to remember these dreams the best when I've woken up.

I lucid dream throughout most of my life (almost daily). I realized that when I control the dream it doesn't always occur the way I want it to .
Anyhow- I used to have these dreams where I'll wake up on my own bed only to find out that I was dreaming and it'll occur repeatedly - I usually look at a book or turn or try washing my hand to see if I'm awake or not. It used to scare me. Then I started a Dream thread- I asked if anyone could see their feet bc I don't remember seeing mine- and that night i got trapped in my sleep again, like I woke up alone in my own room - I knew I was dreaming, I looked down at my feet and saw them and I tried touching them but my hands went right through my foot - I tried feeling my fingers and there are times I can feel them and times when I cannot . I then walk off to my closet ( I can see my image in the mirror) I tried grabbing my clothing but my hands went through- I walk towards the wall and I bumped into it - it felt smooth and cold.

I´ve achieved it like 3 times, after writing my dreams down for like a week.
Sleep paralysis used to happen to me very oftenly, and I panicked a lot, though it hasn´t happened lately.
I´m interested in having an astral projection.
