I haven’t been practising lucid dreaming for 2 months or so now, and when I did I never had success, but this all changed today when I unexpectedly had a very long experience.
This morning, I woke up and then realised class didn’t start for 2 hours, so went back to sleep after 10 minutes of being awake. I then found myself in a dream in my home talking to my parents. I currently live in halls (university accommodation) so the fact that I was home made me question how I was at home when I was meant to be in halls. So I asked my parents, why am I here when I have a class to go to soon? Then it hit me, I must be dreaming!
I then told everyone I’m dreaming and was now fully aware of the dream world I was in. Everything seemed like real life but I knew it was all in my head, I proved to my parents I was dreaming by materializing a cake onto the table. I then went outside and turned on the spot thinking I want to be in a forest, I was then in a forest which had sweets everywhere, the floor was covered in gummy bears!
The dream continued for a long time before I woke up and was aware the whole time. What I find strange is that I was not shocked or scared that I had just become aware I was dreaming, in turn I did not wake up during the dream. It was an amazing experience.
Was this just luck, will I be able to do it again without training?
