Lucid Dreaming - First Night Experience

Postby BryanB » 17 Apr 2015 12:18

After doing plenty of research I went to bed the night of with high hopes and goals, once in bed I laid there frozen but let my thoughts run freely continually telling myself "What comes next will be lucid", "It will be a dream" after running on about that for the next 10 minutes still laying still, I began to have thoughts of what I wanted to dream of, flying across the sunsets of Hawaii and mountains, then I started having thoughts being around strangers in a classroom, then with my mind I decided to get rid of one of the people there; with a strong thought that individual disappeared, instantly I heard a loud bang like a door slam and then SP took over. I immediately closed my eyes allowing the sensation to run through me freely. I felt as if I was floating in the ocean waves (yet my eyes were still closed and I did not see anything but a bright white light), then it started to dissipate and the sensation left me completely. I may have become too excited, yet I managed to get myself that far I am still slightly disappointed. I would appreciate feedback!

To add to the story; when I "erased" that person from my thoughts all of the strangers suddenly turned their attention towards me, then the loud bang came initiating my sleep paralysis. I did have my eyes open for a momentary second to see something black on my ceiling, I did feel frightful at first which led me to shut my eyes closed.

Questions I have, was that feeling of floating on ocean waves apart of the transitioning towards the lucid state? Was it that I became too excited that I snapped out of it? Also, the SP feeling only lasted for 10 seconds before it began to dissipate.

The second or third time I tried to WILD, I had a very similar experience. I had been lying in bed for about an hour, getting all the odd vibrating sensations but not getting much further. Eventually i gave up, and rolled around I let my mind wander a bit, and after about 10 minutes, i heard a loud drum-roll and felt myself drop through the bed and fall through air, landing in a very dark forest. I tried to see more by opening my eyes, and poof, i woke up. I was so angry haha

I suggest to do not try to open your eyes, your dream eyes will open themselves if you don't allow it to bother you. You could even think of yourself having a third eye and seeing from that so not to risk moving your real ones which probably woke you.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself
