    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??

    I've done that quite a few times myself. I have sometimes even changed a dream I didn't like.

    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.
