my name is arthur and i'm 15 years old. I recently signed up for your free e-course, containing ten steps.
i'm currently at the 8th step, and have to tell it's working really good.
I had my first lucid dream last night ; at least, i think i did...
That's what my question is about.
Yesterday evening i went to bed, and performed the total relaxation technique, letting every single part of my body sink into the bed, and then walking down the ten steps into my subconsciouss and sitting down on the couch.
then, i decided to let my visualisation lead me.
I see a little fluorescent line, changing into a bycicle, and then i am suddenly biking in a field, next to the airport of Rio de Janeiro.
I dont really like this place so i decide to go somewhere else, but its not me who decides where i go, if you see what i mean .
so, i find myself on the parking-roof of a supermarket, when i get attacked by a giant red rock, which turns out to be a giant version of the tortoise of mario...
i run to my car, which is a ferrari, but dont want it, and change it into a mclaren
i pursue the toroise, and after a very cool pusuit, my dream ends...
now my problem is that is saw al this happen, and experienced it in my imagination, but i didn't actually see it ; do you get what i mean?
was this a lucid dream or just my imagination. a sort of day dream?
if it wasn't a lucid dream, what do you think i should do to improve all this to turn it into a lucid dream?

So I should actually just believe in it, and expect it to look real and it will?
Anyway, OP, to me it sounds like it wasn't a dream. If you're not actually seeing it, that means you're imagining it, which means it probably wasn't a dream. But it sounds like you're almost there, keep practising!
LucidLeon wrote:erichsa, I disagree. Lucid dreaming is only about being aware that you're in a dream. You can control your dreams without being lucid, and you can be fully lucid and choose to let the dream lead you instead of controlling the dream.
This is correct.
At the higest level the lucid dreamer will be aware that they are separate from the dream, make decisions about what they want to do, think about how they feel as a separate entity and experience the dream as a real, physical place having all the characteristics of waking life with all senses functioning normally. They will also awake with waking-life type memories about their experience in the dream world.
How much control they have is another thing.
