My lucid experience(s)

Postby TomTap2 » 03 Sep 2012 03:32

Hi, I'm Tom, aged 18, about to start University - my life is boring and depressing, blah blah blah. Suddenly yesterday morning (between 10 and 11am) I woke up and went back to sleep, I then had a lucid dream. It involved my ex girlfriend, my friend and I walking along a path, I'd recently split up with her and couldn't stop dreaming about her, my friend was basically there to pick up the pieces. I kept waking up and falling asleep again. The second dream I was in a bar with a pool table and two other men sitting down, I knew again that this dream was pure lucid. So I decided to test it by turning myself into Iron Man, one of my favourite super heroes. It didn't work for some reason, maybe to do with his complicated character/suit. So then I turned into something easier - Bane (from Batman). It was successful as I saw my reflection as a smaller skinnier Bane, I then picked up one of the men sitting down by the scruff of the neck to test my 'strength', due to Bane's strength and intimidation. That was the first time I've managed to control a lucid dream properly. Despite enjoying the moment I could suddenly feel my body on it's side moving, due to my odd sleeping position and I woke up. I then had another lucid dream within minutes. I can't remember it exactly but I woke up in a room with three people, one I recognised and the other two I didn't. One of them had rotten teeth and came up to me lying in bed and decided to pinch my back (weird, I know)... it actually hurt for some reason. He wouldn't stop and I didn't know how to command my dream and tell it that I was supposed to be in control, so I tried to wake up, which was the hardest thing I've ever done. I felt my body, but it was stiff, I couldn't move it whatsoever, like I was paralysed or something, so I panicked. A few seconds later I managed to wriggle my body and wake up, wondering what the hell happened.

I've had lucid dreams before, but very short ones. Once I was walking through the streets (however I didn't know where I was), suddenly realising I was totally aware of my dream, I started teleporting through the street. It was a brilliant experience, but it was a bit fuzzy.

Just thought it would be appropriate to list my experiences cause I'm a newb. I find the whole concept of a lucid dream interesting and would like to try it more often to put a bit of excitement in my life and to get in touch with my subconsciousness.

I literally just attempted a lucid dream and failed due to my body being unable to relax, plus the fact that I've been itching randomly, so it seems impossible at the moment. If anyone knows a way to get past this, i.e. if ignoring the itches works, or something like that, please let me know.

Thanks for reading :)
