Hi, I was able t have my first lucid dream several weeks after learning what lucid dreaming is all about...I've only managed one...HOLY AMAZING!!!! I woke myself up with the excitement of realizing what was happening but not before I got a taste of what it feels like to be fully awake in a dreamscape...I have been giving myself signals ever since in my dreams to help me become lucid but I've not taken any of the cues again yet.
I think that believing you CAN do it is KEY. I'm completely HOOKED and am so excited to go to sleep each night in the hopes that I will take the cue and wake up while asleep.
I'm thrilled to have found this site...I can't wait to read what others have to share!
