Lucid Dream #1: At Least I Hope It Was

Postby Bubblebasedboy » 31 Dec 2016 13:09

Hello all!
Another Lucid Dream Wannabe here
Allow me to share my thoughts

Been trying/dying for years
To experience this Wondrous Thing
I've been reading/watching about
But my previous sleep/dream
Sure was different from the rest

Reality check
I checked my right hand
I saw no fingers
Just my Palm
Does this happen to others?
Is this a frequently seen image
In Lucid Dreams
As opposed to seeing
Hands with Palms and
A weird number/set of Fingers

Things I should have done:
Checked my hand
more than twice not once
Checked BOTH my hands
Not just my right
Counted my fingers
(Well that's what I wanted to do
But I didn't see my fingers!)
Took my time
As to not get too excited

Posting exactly what I wrote
In my Dream Notebook/Journal:

I think I just had my first lucid dream
It didn't last long
Aimee was there right before I realized
I thought to myself
This can't be real because I know
We don't live together anymore
We've broken up a long time ago

And then I did a reality check
I looked at my right hand
I saw no fingers
I was right
Though I was supposed to see
A weird number of fingers
Right after which I tried to
Go through as in a ghost
The next nearest door
Sort of dived
I went through
After a short while
Due to no confidence
I woke up

Michelle (Nixon) was there too
(Neighbor)
Before I saw Aimee


What time did this happen
About after lunch
After I ate a little something
Left over from a Chinese resto
I did take the red pill (DreamLeaf)
It probably did the trick finally
2016Dec30
Binaural beats
I was listening to it
Right before falling asleep
Through Delta Waves app
I set it to a particular setting
Patterns
Wavelength
Wave type
Wave frequency

During my whole dream scene
I could hear the sound
Binaural Beats
Which I tried to stop
Along the way
By trying to take it off from my ears
Earphones/earbuds
For some reason I thought
The sound doesn't want to stop
It's as if my earphones were stuck
I realized I probably I didn't have
My earphones on
Distracted by the images I saw
I went on my way
(Static)

Thanks for listening!
Hope to hear from you
I think I'm close. .

Hello Bubblebasedboy.

That sounds like a short lucid dream to me. Congrats!

Yes, looking at your hands they can look strange in all kinds of ways. Walking through a door is a great achievement in your first lucid dream.

No, if you looked at your hand and found it showing you are lucid, dont check it again as if it then comes up as normal, many people end up convincing themselves that they are not lucid dreaming after all. So its best if you have clear proof shown that you are dreaming to not go and check again and in your mind just hold onto that clear proof you had.

Hands are usually odd in dreams so make great reality checks. The thing with hands, one never knows how they will appear. See my picture. That is a painting of my hand during a LD where I had the right amount of fingers but my hand was split some down the middle like some kind of alien being.

Another time I had the right amount of fingers but my fingers had plants growing out of them, one lot of fingers were growing ivy while the other hands fingers were growing something else. I thought about the plants coming from fingers after I got up and I think I got that symbolism in my dream cause I'd been doing a lot of gardening that week so it was probably representing that i had "green fingers' ..been working with plants.

Other times I'll have different amounts of fingers.

Everything which appears in dreams is representing something from our subconsciousness or consciousness.. no fingers could represent that you have an issue in life right now that you are having trouble grasping or something in life that you are having trouble holding onto in your life eg it could represent having trouble holding onto a relationship.

Hands are always fun to inspect. Hands are also good to use as just for stabilisation if needed too.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself
