Realized I was dreaming but didn't go lucid?

Postby EmilyRose » 16 Jan 2016 17:43

I basically said to a friend in a dream *Don't worry this is just a dream* Then I realized I was dreaming but I still had no control over it? Why?

You had a low level of lucidity and probably quickly lost it. You need to have an action plan and employ the relevant techniques to maintain lucidity. I recommend Michael Raduga's The Phase--A Practical Guidebook. 8-)

There are five layers of a lucid dream, when you are lucid without control over anything, you are having a layer two lucid dream.

Just to reiterate what others have said, this confirms you were indeed lucid, however you slipped out of it before you could do anything.
