So last night I had my first LD since I’m training the art of lucid dreaming.
Of course, it was awesome, but I had some questions about it. Hope you could help.
Let me first quickly describe my dream.
At one point everything became so vivid, and I realized I was dreaming. I was actually saying “I am dreaming!”. I started walking and looking around. I also almost lost my lucidity, the noise was gone and it became blurry, but then I started rubbing my hands (thanks for the tip!). I tried to fly, but it didn’t really work. To test my lucidity, I was doing some random things like doing a jump and kicking my feet together. I also remember thinking ‘wow, how long am I LD’ing? Must be at least 10 minutes now right?’, but now I really have no idea how long it was. There were many characters in my dream, a lot of which I recognized but also some people I didn’t knew. At one point I was in a house or something. I was starting to get intimate with a girl in my dream, but at that point my f*ing alarm clock went off.
So here are my questions:
I don’t remember anything before I became lucid, is this normal? So at one point in the night, I just became lucid! The first thing I remember was talking with someone and me realizing I was lucid.
I don’t remember everything of my lucid dream, de fuck? When I woke up, I was all excited because I realized I was LD’ing. I turned off my alarm clock and starting to write in my dream journal on my phone. But somewhere in the middle of my dream I don’t really remember what I was doing. Like a little black spot in my memory. Could this be I lost my lucidity at a moment?
Does the time when you go to sleep have an influence in the likelyhood of getting LD? Because It was 06:00 AM when I went to sleep (I had a party that night), so it was pretty late. I was really tired but I wasn’t thinking about LD’ing at all.
How did I became lucid? The funny thing is, that night I wasn’t actively trying to get lucid. I thought maybe I did a RC in my dream or something, but I don’t remember doing it. Any tips of how I could repeat this? Before this experience I had little success with other techniques.
Thanks in advance and thanks for reading!
