Last night, I had my 2nd LD since starting back up again
Anyways, I am less shocked and amazed by my 2nd LD than I am by the fact that the LD occured without any RCs. Up until this point, all of the LDs I have had in my life have been a clear result of RCs, MILD, or just plain old instinct (my hundreds of childhood LDs).
On to the dream: Nothing to explain really other than the moment the dream started I became lucid without even thinking about it. I was so shocked at that fact that I started the dream lucid that I forgot to do anything else! I did an RC after I was lucid (of course nothing happened since I was already lucid) simply because I couldn’t believe it! Anyways, the dream only lasted for about 10 seconds because it was earlier in the night. The question becomes, was this LD induced by instinct (I don’t think it was because it happened the moment the dream started) or was it induced by MILD (which I went to sleep with). Originally I thought it was instinct, just because I’ve never really read about a similar experience… but then I vaguely remembered reading somewhere that people who master MILD are able to LD all night long and instantly become lucid when they enter a dream. Of course, I don’t believe I am anywhere near mastering MILD… but was this dream the result of weeks of practice or simply the result of instinct?
