false awakening

Postby erichsa » 17 Aug 2012 19:10

In a false awakening do you wake up in bed or can you realize at a stage that you have been dreaming to that point, and wake up being not in bed,but up and about? I got up this Morning did what I do most mornings, I thought it not odd that I seem to do my cooking via the laptop, i must check on the laptop how to do things. I did do it as I thought I always do.In the Kitchen I saw plates with food I don't eat in the morning,that actualy made think as I had Breakfast already and remember eating it. I remembered what I always have for breakfast, that made me click and I was awake but not in bed, just standing and thinking,that I had a False Awakening, but at no time did I think I was Dreaming. I am not a lucid dreamer yet but have good and positive clear dreams, i just up to now never realize that I am dreaming. I will get lucid once I am going to stumble and fall over my reality checks and affirmation during dreaming.

Simply put, if you wake up and do stuff... then you REALLY wake up, what you experienced was a false awakening. It's when you THINK you've waken up into the physical and yet you really haven't.

it does not answer my question. i got up did do my morning things, bathroom, eating, on the laptop,reading and doing this and that. only much later it came to me that i was dreaming,and woke up,and not in bed but walking in in my flat. I have read by now Rebecca's article on false awakening,and understand that i am not in bed (which i was not) but i would call it: Dream Walking. i am begining slowly to understand that i do normal things mixed with not so normal, and that is called, False Awakening.
it is now 5:11am in germany, i just had a long flying dream, will now go for the next dream.

joyfull dreamig :)

This happened to me this morning but i didn't get up or start cooking or anything, but i got up walk to my bedroom door and then woke up in my bed so i thought i must of been dreaming. So then i got up and open my door again and then woke up once again in my bed this repeated 4 more times after that i just gave up to be honest it was quite scary it was like i was trapped in my room but luckily my mum woke me up haha. I think it might have been because i had a lucid dream last night and i went to sleep quite late so my body must have been tired so even though im thinking of getting up my body refused to.

I don't really understand what you're trying to say.
You "woke up", did a bunch of stuff... then REALLY woke up? Yes, that's a false awakening.
I'm unclear exactly what you're asking if my previous post didn't answer your question if you were having false awakening or not?

Quite simply, you never asked a question in your original post. And even in your follow up, I see no question.

Yup, that's a classic false awakening. :)
It can get kinda trippy.

I woke up once after having a really great Projection... I grabbed my journal and jotted down some notes of it and went back to sleep. I woke up in the morning only to find that I hadn't written anything down and the act of writing down the notes was a false awakening. THAT was frustrating, cause it was a really nice experience, yet I couldn't remember any of it! LoL

OK the question is: when i woke up i was not in bed,but ´doings things in the flat,und everything was normal again. is that a false awakening? as i understand it i should wake up in bed and realize that i was dreaming, but why was i not in bed? could it have been an out of body? my reply to your first letter was not ment as a question,but this one is :)

Well, a false awakening is ANYTIME you think you've woken up, but really haven't.

We can say that it *generally* occurs in your bedroom, because that's the usual location which people realize it, but I've had false awakenings in many different places.

Once, I "woke up" and I was riding my bike down a busy road... I thought I was completely awake and enjoying a nice bike ride into work, but then I woke up in my bed realized I was still dreaming. That's a false awakening too.

So yes, what you experienced was definitely a false awakening... it's not defined by "where" you are. It's defined by "if you think you're awake, but really aren't". :)
