So last night i was having a nightmare.. i was on a murder charge or something.. i can't remember now, but i remember panicking a lot..

.. then i remember saying to myself in my dream "This is just a dream, wake up now" AND I DID!!!!

It was really strange, i felt really anxious when i woke up but i calmed down by telling myself it was just a dream and went back to sleep..

I wonder if this was just a one off or whether i could do it again? Has anyone else managed to do this??

Sounds like lucid dreaming, where you know that you are dreaming and can control the outcome.

The degree of lucidity varies. When I was taking anti-depressants I found that my ability to have lucid dreams was greatly increased.

The first time I had one was after broke my wrist in sports. It was almost as if my body went into a type of shock. Strangely, the dream was the best feeling I'd ever had at the time - the abitity to do ANYTHING you want - and everything felt SO real.

It's difficult to explain what it's like to someone who's never had one, but those who have experienced it will know what I mean. I'm not really religious at all, but it does feel like a spiritual experience.

I use to have these all the time, not much lately. Mine weren't nightmares, they were mostly very cool. You can do anything without consequence. I have also had experieces of my mind being awake, but not my body. I would be conscience but couldn't move my body or open my eyes no matter how bad I wanted too, very weird and scary.

I know what you are talking about. I have woken myself up some times, telling myself in the dream that i have to woke up. It's a little weird that you still are so afraid whenyou woke up, cause you know it is a dream and just pure fantasy, but the shock get's so big that it's not leaving the body. And surely it has sonething to do with the night

I have always had lots of nightmares. Sometimes I know I'm dreaming and sometimes I don't. Sometimes when the nightmare is really bad I cry out: 'Jesus help me' and every single time I wake up. There are times I can't speak in my dreams so I just say it in my head.
