My first FILD (Finger induced lucid dream) during a daytime nap

Postby LDer Charles » 27 Apr 2018 15:38

Hi everyone! I've had a few LD's but not one was a FILD. Until now! Now I have had a FILD. :)

The preceding non lucids are in my DJ blog on the link in my sig.

...

Forgotten parts

I thought there might have been a part at my Nana’s room or something. I tried to store some details in my head but later, after the FILD, found I had forgotten at least some.

Vibrations

I started to get some vibrational sensations like I might Dream Exit Induced Lucid, Dream. I tried to amplify the ringing but it didn’t go anywhere yet.

As I did this I realized I might forget the previous dreams. I told myself I formed a strong enough memory.

Finger Induced Lucid, Dream

Yeah! So Then I randomly got the idea to try Finger Induced Lucid, Dream. I think it was the fingers on my left hand I started to twitch. I felt something happen I never felt before.

It was hard to describe. I will have to pay more attention to it in future attempts. But something like a bright light in my head. And some sensations.

Twitching my 2 fingers felt different too. They started to move super fast because I was probably twitching my dream fingers.

Back in bed

I was back in bed. Or so I thought. I figured the Finger Induced Lucid, Dream had done nothing. But then I noticed another sports broadcast playing. That wouldn’t be playing in my room since I didn’t leave it on. And no one was home. So I felt like taking a little chance that I was in the dream world.

I’ve heard of this before. During Wake Initiated Lucid Dream for example. Someone being in their bed, and it seems like its their physical bed, so they’re afraid to move. But really it’s a dream and if they open their eyes its going to be a dream.

Snow?! In my Room?!

I started to feel snow fall on me. This seemed normal at first. (LOL) I opened my mouth and let it fall on my tongue. Yep, snow.

Then that also made me think this might be a dream. So I decided to roll onto my back at least and take a peek.

Getting Up

First I was on my back. My low back felt stuck to the bed but everything else could move.

I got to where I was still stuck on my lower back, but I had fallen onto the floor. Or teleported there. I still wasn’t totally sure it was a dream. Maybe I was just getting up.

I willed myself to stand. It was kind of like flying a little, more than using legs and arms to get up.

I still had my eye mask on within the dream. I had to remove a few layers of cloth until I could see. They kept appearing once I removed the previous one.

Invisible

One thing I noticed was the objects in my room kept going invisible. My room was laid out like waking life. Shelf in same place. Desk and lap top in similar place. Even my Dream Journal chair in same place.

Even my dream body would blink into invisibility, then become visible again. I noticed this when trying to check my hands to verify it was a dream. I had a hard time believing that I hadn’t just gotten up out of bed physically.

This will prove it!

I eventually found my lap top and opened it. There was a VLC kind of icon on the task bar, but more to the left than in waking life.

I tried to open a note pad file. My goal was to type myself something and then see if it was there later. But the more I noticed the difference in the computer, I was already sure it was a dream.

Morphing Keyboard

What really sealed the deal was the key board. It was smaller and had more tape on it. Also I remember looking at the letter “D”. It was like where “W” in waking life. But I did the good old double check letters and the “D” became an “S”. The rest of the letters morphed, too.

Popped Back

I thought of checking out the window or something but the dream didn’t seem that stable. Everything was going invisible and stuff.

After I was looking at the key board more I thought, “You know how I will know it’s a dream? That thing will happen where my consciousness pops back into my body in bed. So that’s how I’ll know.” And then that happened.

Notes

I was really excited to get my first Finger Induced Lucid, Dream! It was hard to believe since I never entered a dream that way. But I guess the Finger Induced Lucid, Dream teleported me into a dream. Very cool.

Thanks for reading! :)

PS I guess because I kept not bein sure it was a dream, its more like a Finger induced regular dream that I was pre lucid in the whole time and then had a DILD. But I think the main thing is actually entering the dream via the FILD method. I just had a hard time believing how simple it was.

Really interesting to read what you experienced, because I too have trouble finding a way to be sure I really am dreaming. Thanks for the several helpful tips you included.
