A Collection Of Interactive Lucid Dreaming Stories

If you've ever experienced a lucid dream before, you know just how amazing of a place the lucid dream world can be.

Lucid Dreaming Stories

But how does everyone else experience the lucid dream world? It is this question that has prompted me to create this platform, where anybody who wants to can share their own lucid dreaming stories, and the world can perhaps gain some further insight on the phenomenon that drives people to explore deeper into their very reality.

Explore Lucid Dream Stories | Share Your Own

If you've ever experienced a lucid dream, whether once in your life or multiple times every night, I heartily encourage you to share your experiences. By filling out the form below you'll have your own page published on our site containing your writing. You'll add to the collection of lucid dreaming stories found on this page for others to learn from, and provide yourself a chance to possibly see the thoughts of others in response to your dream in your page's comments section.

And without further ado, I leave you with what I think is an incredibly soul-probing quote, followed by the form for sharing your stories, and a list of the already submitted stories just below that.

Happy Exploring,

"Dreams are real while they last -- can we say more of life?"

-The sexologist and writer Havelock Ellis (1859-1939)
