(FILD) Fear induced Lucid Dreams
« on: March 16, 2010, 06:38:33 PM »
I'v had several dreams of doing normal non Lucid things in my dream but having this strong sense of fear. Even when I'm not in a dangerous situation and just sitting in a livingroom. I'v had a couple dreams I call fear dreams that got me Lucid because of all this unknown fear.

This ties in with an observation I made a while ago - that worry and anxiety are conducive to lucid dreaming.  WoILD - Worry Induced Lucid Dream.  If you search, you'll probably find the thread on it.

FILD is already claimed by a pretty effective method involving finger movement.  Gonna have to think up another acronym for this one.

It is an astute observation.

Would you describe it as a sort of vague ominousness or foreboding?  Some *very* powerful dreams centered around that, even though, like you said, nothing much happens.  I like this kind much better than other types of "bad" dreams; e.g., annoying worry or guilt types.  There's something profound about them.

I had a lot of nightmares like that when I was a kid, and it's most likely the main reason I started having lucid dreams in the first place. Even though I wasn't always in a dangerous situation in the dream, I'd feel fear, and the fear heightened my awareness and made me lucid. In several ways, it's a powerful way to get lucid.

SOrry for the late response.


I'm not sure where exactly it comes from. But Iv Had it numourous Times in the past. It seems like your brain even when Lucid is differant. For example. In dreams I'm scare of Water. But in real Life I'm a swimmer. So Like a lot of time I end up in rooms filling with water. Another for me is like being suspended in Huge dark places when In real Life I always liked to fly. SO I'm not sure if it is waking Life Trama or false Logics or just the simple fact that your brain is in some kind of odd state. I'm not sure why the Fear tends to get emplified when asleep. Because too much of emotions, smell anything can get carried over into the dreams.

So how could one make use of this? Think scary thoughts before going to sleep? Get in the habit of doing RCs whenever you experience fear?

Where I dreaming lay amazed
When the secrets all are told
And the petals all unfold
When there was no dream of mine
You dreamed of me.

Maybe reading the news before going to sleep would be scary enough for most people. ;)

Makes sense, especially when there's really dramatic news. Probably watching TV news would produce the best results.

I have noticed  that I have a great chance of becoming lucid in dangerous situations, but there is no fear involved, instead the situation just creates a heightened awareness. Some real examples: I'm sitting in a car as a passenger, suddenly we run over a cliff, I become lucid immediately and "freezes" time. I'm about to get shot, and I become lucid to just ignore the shot or either defend my self with control of forces allowed in the dream. I somehow falls off a mountain, and then immediately just flies and glides down.  In my own experience, it's not fear, but the need for a more lucid mind to deal with the situation, possibly a defence mechanism.

Fear is something we must overcome, it is the enemy of personal evolution. Dreams are great environments for testing our fears,  because they give us a lot of experience to act upon from the being level, and not with the intellect (though this can vary greatly), and when you use your decision space to have an intent coming from love, caring and compassion and not fear, ego and belief, that's progress!

Terror
Induced
Lucid
Dream

Dread actually seems like a better word. But DILD is taken.

Horror
Induced
Lucid
Dream

That could work
