I had bad recurring nightmares when I was little and my dad told ne to think of him and my mom beating up the bad guy or monster or whatever. So when Id get too scared Id think of my parents then I realized I was capable of conscious thought during dreams and could change them. So I've been able to lucid dream since I was 8. I also have sleep paralysis if I wake up in the middle of the night but because I lucid dream I can make it so it isnt scary until Im able to fully wake up. Minds are so interesting.
the hard part isn't realizing that you're dreaming. that's the easy part. look at clocks or your hands. while dreaming, the brain has a hard time with numbers (the clock will show something weird like 62:40 or your hands will have a wrong amount of fingers.) The hard part is not waking yourself up after you realize you're dreaming. learn to control you're heart rate and lucid dreaming becomes more easy.
Yes and no. What I do is that I will "program my dream" I lay down to go to sleep but intentionally start day dreaming building what I want to dream about. Usually in this state I get to dream what I want but I also know I am dreaming. Other times I just randomly realize I am dreaming but stay asleep. I have been doing this for so many years that while usually people only remember there dreams for a little after waking up I can recall mine weeks and months later.
And of course the comments are basically agreeing with her, even though there are so many other amazing things you could lucid dream, like flying, or being around wild animals, or telling a shit boss to go fuck himself. Hopefully your girlfriend will come to her senses, OP.
