Unintentional Lucid Dream

Postby austinl91 » 26 Jan 2014 01:42

Hello all!

I had a dream about a year and a half ago that I will never forget. For most of the dream I was terrified. I was staying with my dad while waiting for my new apartment to be available. While in the dream I had no idea I was dreaming. For the majority of the dream, I was just laying in the same bed I fell asleep in. It seemed like HOURS that I had been laying there unable to move. It came to a point that I knew that I was sleeping but that I was stuck. I was paralyzed and unable to nudge my partner who was still laying next to me. As I began to panic, thinking that I may indeed be really stuck. All of a sudden, I was in my childhood home in Hawaii (We now live in North Dakota :| ) with my father. I asked him if the same was happening to him (being stuck in a dream). He said yes and agreed that we would talk about it when we woke up. As soon as the agreement was made, I awoke startled and gasping for air. It was only 3 or 4 in the morning and I was terrified of going back to bed in fear of getting stuck again. Needless to say, my dad did not remember as, of course, he was not there.

Was this a lucid dream? Have you ever been stuck in a dream and unable to wake? Is there any way to prevent this if I attempt lucid dreaming? I only recently heard of this and began researching it as I find it very intriguing.

No, but I'd gladly take all of yours. Being unable to wake is reinforced dream stabilization.
Don't give up on your dreams! Keep sleeping...
