What is Lucid Dreaming and who am I?

Lucid dreaming (sometimes called astral projection although they’re not quite the same) is the ability to become SELF AWARE in your dreams, meaning you can control them. Being able to elevate your consciousness like this is something anyone can learn!

There are also many benefits to lucid dreaming, such as improved sleep, more energy, more confidence, and more restorative sleep. Not to mention the fact you can become more CONSCIOUS and experience the impossible! Why not?! You’re gonna be asleep for a third of your life anyway, let’s use that time!

I’m Stef and I run howtolucid.com and this YouTube channel (and a couple of others), dedicated to helping you learn to control your dreams. I’ve been lucid dreaming for over 7 years now and I have a passion for dreams and travel. Follow my journey!

    I'm gonna guess before getting to the part where you talk about that the average person spends about 100000 hours dreaming.

    Ahh nice it's 5 am, I'm awake, and just realized that the technique didn't work 😊👌

    I’m going to make an educated guess by doing some math. I did not look this up. Let’s say I live 100 years, and I sleep for 1/3 of that time. 100/3 = 33.3 years. And we dream near then end of being asleep right before waking up. Let’s just say this is 2/8 hours of sleep each night. There are about 365 nights in a year. 2 x 365 = 730 hours in a year. 730 x 33.3 = 24,309 of hours of dreaming in an 100 year lifespan.

    It comes out to be 19,199 hours of dreaming for the average 79 year lifespan.

    500 thousand

  10. Paul May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    Maybe 15,000 hours?

    My last lucid dream was strange. I remember running around and flying in an open field. Out of nowhere, I got the idea to ask my mind to do something. I remember shouting, "Show me something amazing." Intantly, I saw a massive pig with sunglasses smoking a cigarette. That moment suprised me so much that I think a lost lucidity because everything after that was a blur.

    guess: 50,000 hours

    Hey dude, I have a problem. Whenever I try to do the WILD technique after my body paralyzes I do not enter in a dream, I don't get any hallucinations. The only way I get any Lucid Dreams is by * Dream Induced * LD. Also, whenever I get in a Lucid Dream (by Dream Induced LD) I suddenly freak out mid-dream and then wake up eventually. Do you have any tips? I even watched your videos but WILD is not happening.

  16. Abdul F May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    Ok I need you to listen to this yesterday I dreamt about you and I was talking to you as if I never met you before but in my head I say haven't i seen this guy before . Then I asked you what do you do what's ur job and then you said you tube and I said what do you do in your videos what's your YouTube channel about. And at the moment you were trying to give me an answer someone comes in the door and changes the whole subject. That could of turned out to be a lucid dream. When I woke up I felt my mind didn't want me to know that I was dreaming do you have an answer for this ?

  17. Joshua Beesley May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    Last night I had an amazing lucid dream! I then woke up and saw it was 2:30AM. I then wrote all of the dream down so that I could remember it well

  18. vinicius kobs May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    is it normal to have "fake lucid dreams"?
    in 4 years i had one real lucid dream, where i was totaly awaken in my dream and i could really explore the environment and interact with things, but i had like 10 dreams where i had the sensation of being lucid, but when i woke up, i realised that i was just watching myself doing things thinking i was lucid

    sorry if my english is broken

  19. Gabriel Clark-Alvarado May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    I’m going to guess… about 1/24th of our life… because if we sleep for 8 hours, and have 5 or 6 sleep cycles and each dream is 5-15min, then that’s maybe an hour per night, and therefore an hour out of each day.

    Update at end of video: I was pretty damn close! 1/24th is close to 1/25th, and if you lived to be a hundred, then it would add up to 4 years!

  20. AwesomeGamer56 May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    My guess is that we dream 6 years

  21. Talukder Raiyan May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    I am going to tell my first lucid dream story when I was 6yo. I didn't know anything bout lucid dreaming back then. I just thought "What if we could know we're dreaming in our dreams?" I had my first lucid dream that night. You won't believe what my dumbass did. In the dream, I literally went into the kitchen and told my mom, Hey mom, you know we're dreaming?. She was like really nonchalant. I then got out my house and went to my school. I flied the whole way. Truth be told my first lucid dream was the best lucid dream of my life. I'm 16 and don't remember having a single lucid dream since then. Let me know some tips, how can I bring back my superpower :'-(

    1 year

  23. Joe Phillips May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    4 hours per night on average.

  24. Pertti FX May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    in one of my lucid dreams i was in my backyard, then i did a reality check and realized it was a dream, then i went to my closest store and ate and drank everything i could find just to know what it would be like to drink or eat in a dream, turned out that i could taste them somehow

  25. Falk May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    Nothing wron about it, but why did you decide to grow your hair out?

  26. Evilknuckle 133 May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    My craziest Lucid dreaming story started with me in a hallway at school. I wasn't Lucid yet so I didn't find anything out of the ordinary. Some kid gave me a box out of no where and walked away. Then Taylor swift pops up and without thinking I gave her the box. I still thought everything was completely normal. As I start to walk away, the box explodes and when I turned around, everyone was gone. It was there when I realized how ridiculous this all was and I became lucid. I've been watching HowToLucid recently so I immedietly thought about that. Suddenly you appeared and I got so excited I woke up. Classic beginner mistake 🙁

  27. Isak May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    2000-3000 hours

  28. That Guy May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    I seen your videos on dream recall but i still cant seem to remember do you have any more tips

  29. Mark B. May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    Meditation helps so much with dream recall. When I stopped meditating for a while I stopped recalling as much. But, going back onto to meditation I could remember my dreams and detail and vibrancy – basically everyday.

  30. stevenstrumpf7 May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    1,536 hours a year so assuming you live 80 years, that would be approximately 122,000 hours of dreaming in your lifetime unpause video let's see if I got it right.

  31. drgdfhg May 19, 2019 at 12:33 pm

    30 years. For the avarage person.
    The X years you say is not a lot considering that half of this time may have already passed.I can't learn it as stable like you. I failed.. I got through your bootcamps, bought Claridream (makes my heart go so fast, idk why), I just can't… I had only 1 ir 2 LD, then black… I've looked on too much stuff… Tried meditation (can't do it properly), I lack of effort these days very much. Some people deleted me from their life… I was getting there but I just can't. I am too stressed for this. I wanted to lucid dream so I can try some stuff… I had experiments to test… And I cant do it.
