SUCCESS!!! Reality checks worked!!

Postby shutterbugjen » 20 Dec 2015 21:57

I am happy to report... SUCCESS!!! After recording my dreams for four days, performing reality checks and practicing mindfulness as often as I can, this afternoon during a nap I experienced my first lucid dream! I was sitting around chatting with the cast of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman (my favorite TV show when I was a teenager,) when I suddenly realized, "This isn't normal. Am I dreaming?" I tried to push my fingers through my palm and it felt really different- squishy and warm- but I was actually nervous to push them all the way through. So then I tried looking at my hands, and they looked so weird! Most of the fingers were missing fingernails. That's when I realized I had done it! At this point in the dream, the dream characters had lined up for a line dance in a barn, so I joined them, and as I sashayed down the line, I stopped in front of one of the characters and said, "Why are you here?" He grunted at me, but I didn't care I was just excited to be having a lucid dream. After that it faded away, but it was such a cool sensation to realize it was a dream and to enjoy it! It's very much like many of the articles on this website say- once you realize it's a dream, everything kind of "pops" into reality. Keep at it, guys, just earlier today I was starting to wonder how long it would take before I started performing reality checks in my dreams, but today it happened!

Congratulations!!

I've achieved Lucidity about 3 times and all three of them were during naps (I think that's the best time for beginners)

I hope you achieve lucidity more often

Best wishes

Sincerely

Thank you!

@Merrick- keep trying! Before I finally achieved lucidity I felt like my subconscious was SCREAMING at me to become lucid, throwing me all kinds of signs and cues. It'll eventually come to you. I haven't had any more lucid dreams but am feeling hopeful it will happen again soon.

@uraszz- maybe you're right! I rarely have opportunities to nap but I think I'll have to make it a priority now!
