First lucid dream. Possibly a WILD?

Postby pennysuede » 22 Sep 2014 19:13

So, I have been trying for the past month to have a lucid dream doing reality checks, and trying to do a dream journal. (not as easy for me). I have been doing this because as a teenager I had a full on out of body experience, had never heard of one, and even though it was quite scary for me, I felt happy to own that experience. The spinning that preceeded the OBE is what has prevented me from doing that. Since then I am no stranger to body paralysis and floaty feelings. I actually just learned what a real Lucid dream is a few months ago, and this sounds more like me. So yesterday morning I woke up around 6 am. I was supposed to be up by 7, so I decided to lay there/return to sleep. I decided to relax my body and see what happened as I usually do on Saturday and Sunday mornings. I got very floaty feeling. Of course I was seeing black at first, but the more floaty I felt I started "seeing" geometrical shapes, in white, with numbers floating around it. Didnt really seem to give it much attention, and then I started hearing music. Not like country or rock, more like bells or something like that. I started "Seeing" light and I couldnt figure out if I was really opening my eyes, although I was sure I wasnt. By this time I was very floaty and I decided I was goign to try to to just roll with it. I felt like I had floated up by my ceiling (again, I could see, but not my real eyes). I pryed my hands through the ceiling and was in my attic. It wasnt really my attic, but this one had a window with a blue tarp for a curtain. I thought, I did it. I am obviously in a dream, cause this isnt real, but I am also awake. I went to the window and thought I want to fly. I jumped out and didnt succeed. I floated to the bottom. I then realize I landed on grass (I dont have grass, I live in arizona). I remembered I heard someone elses story say he could feel grass and the trees etc, so I decided to feel the grass. It was wet. I could feel it. I moved over to the trees and ran my hand down the trunk. I could feel the hard grooves that made up the tree. I was like OK for sure this is a lucid dream. I climed up my brick wall fence and thought where do I want to go. I could hear two kids behind me, but decided not to look or pay attention to them. I guess they went away. I wanted to try eating, so I thought I would try to fly to my favorite restaurant. I again jumped and failed. I went back through the house and did it all over again. I then decided I was super happy and wanted to tell my partner about it, so I just sorta opened my eyes. (again no transition). What was this? Any feedback would be much appreciated. I am so excited- I feel like I have started my path :)

Thank you very much for your reply. The OBE as a teenager was indeed a very different experience. I was religious and had no clue any of these type of things were even possible. I had just layed down to go to sleep. I had a clock in my room that ticked and I started concentrating on the tick (not sure why). I began to feel spinning vibrations and it made me feel a bit anxious, but I felt like something was going to happen, wasn't sure what but I KNEW the spinning was leading to something. It began to grow faster and faster but I just let it happen. I felt excited and a bit nervous at the same time. The next thing I knew, I was out of my body. I was able to see in four dimensions- I was level with the door frame. I wasn't scared until I tried to move, or talk and I wasn't able to. I could feel myself try to but again I just wasn't able to. I tried doing anything physical like move and eventually it did pull me back in to my body. After that experience it seemed like every time I closed my eyes, the vibrations were back and strong. It scared me to try again after that for years.

a few weeks later after this experience, I was laying on the couch after school and just had closed my eyes, and I felt like I was being pushed downward out of my body. I could "see" an entrance to the couch above me. That was the very last experience I had until now.

Actually- I did have one other pretty interesting thing happen. I think I went from a lucid dream right in to an OBE. Any feedback on this one is welcome because of the nature of the events that happened kinda tripped me out. So, I went to bed one night and I had been practicing OBEs, but knew an obstacle I still had is fear of things you see during the hypnagogia state, or sleep paralysis so I was kinda trying, and kinda not. So as I was laying there, I felt floaty and slipped in to a dream where it was all dark. A little girl was there asking me if I could help her have lucid experiences, and I told her that I could not until I faced my fears. Just then a dark shadow came rushing down toward me, and I decided it was a good time to face my fear so even though I was scared I stood there and didnt run. This went on for a good bit, and then I found myself in a restaurant with an older man sitting at a booth, just the two of us who seemed to "know" I was there, but I knew that I had to let him know I was there by another form other than sight and hearing. I started focusing on looking at him through my third eye at his third eye. I could feel my third eye tingling and I somehow was able to put pressure on it. He kept saying "Nope, not yet" and I was growing angry and his third eye area was growing large and red, and I was getting uncontrollably angry. He finally said "I can tell your there but its coming across as your scaring me". At this point I transitioned to being awake and I was experiencing the rapid spinning feelings like I had when I was a teenager and I knew I was about to project, I stopped myself because of what had just happened. This happened a few months ago. The part where I was angry and I couldn't seem to control it made me wonder 1. who this guy was? 2. How could I let myself get so angry? (Normally I am a pretty easy going person).

Anyway, I wanted to also write this one because it seems like a great place to write down all my experiences, even though its just a few newby ones. :)

Stupid question.... What is a WILD or what does it stand for? :?:
Is Lucid Dreaming the brains preparation for the next step of human evolution when we can escape the corporeal bond of our bodies?

Hi Builidit - It stands for Wake Initiated Lucid Dream. There are different approaches to initiate a lucid dream. This one you skip the transition from awake to asleep.

Nesgirl- Your last reply I really got a lot out of, thank you! I will check out that Youtube video tonight. Your LD is similar in a lot of ways, did it seem weird that they called you by your real name? Does that happen often because I have read other posts saying that they get called random names. If I can ask, how long have you been able to do this, you seem really advanced?

Okay so I have also experienced these vibrations and I too am scared of the hypnogigic hallucinations however I have never experienced any because I always move to wake myself up. I have become permanently scared and afraid of the vibrations. They happen occasionally but for a while I was questioning weather or not I was sane because it was just weird no one ever talks about lucid dreaming where I'm from obviously after reading on this forum a bit I found it normal especially for wild induction. I'm asking how I can get over the vibrations because about a year ago they were very very strong and that's what scares me. That and seeing shadowy figures which is so dumb cus the reason we are scared of stuff like that is because horror movies but I guess I want to get passed this so I can master induction teqniques and lucid dreaming eventually.

Agreed! I think this is the most common fear is what you will see or experience during the transition. I have listened over and over again peoples experiences with this and they all say that what you see, you create- so I have to agree with the advice of not watching horror movies. I am still scared, but now I really feel OK about it knowing that its all conjured up makings of my head and all I have to do is confront it (although I say that now.. lol, i haven't run in to anything really scary yet). I welcome the experience though. I hear that a lot of lucid dreamers have really healed a lot in their life by facing these things. Also, I hear that facing these scary things help you in "real" life facing things here too. Saturdays and Sundays are my two days of trying- I am super excited and hoping for anther experience this weekend.

It can be scary but not harmful so embrace anything that happens and enjoy the dream entry.

WILD is mindblowing
