First Lucid Dreams

Postby cuzcats » 11 May 2016 22:25

So about a month ago I had my first lucid dream after about a year and a half of practicing. I didn't get to do anything sadly and it went a little like this:

So I laid down for a nap and then next thing I know I sit up. I open my laptop and music wont stop playing so I close all the tabs and it still doesn't stop playing. I get frustrated and shut it. I get my phone and try to snapchat my best friend back, but when I try to find my snapchat app, theres only three columns of apps instead of four. At this point I was suspicious and wondered if I was dreaming. I decided to do a reality check and I chose counting my fingers. I only had three fingers. I got extremely excited and tried to sit up too fast and woke myself up. I was frustrated but very happy at the same time because I managed to have a lucid dream even if I couldn't do anything.

Now last night, I went to bed at about 11:00pm. I don't know exactly what time I fell asleep but I know I had a lucid dream. I tried to get on my phone again, like my first lucid dream. My phone wasn't working correctly so I did a reality check by checking the time. The clock was messed up and I became lucid. This time around, I remembered my last mistake of getting too excited. I tried to stay calm and said "Clarity now!" about 3 times but I couldn't stay asleep and woke up. When I woke up I had a funny hallucination of a coat hanger or something and my whole body jolted as it looked like the hallucination was coming right towards my face.

Both these experiences, I hadn't even been trying. Although, I had mentioned or heard about lucid dreaming or dreaming in general earlier in the day. Both of the dreams only lasted about 30-45 minutes each. It's almost like I achieve lucidity from false awakenings.

I would really like to know how I can stay calm and get out of bed in my dream without waking myself up in real life. I'm very excited I finally have managed to have a couple lucid dreams because I have been so intrigued by the idea of flying and doing whatever you want in dreams. Dreaming is a nice escape from reality.

Staying calm is very tough BUT I do have a solution that works for me. Grab your shirt or ANYTHING and feel it's tough... This will help stabilize the dream much better.

I can often embrace a sensation of climbing out of the dream body located in bed. Carefully seek to separate, as if by sitting up from the body. Then create a motion as by falling down. The sensation of movement solidifies the new dream body. (This is not an OBE in my view.)
