Something strange happened last night and I really would like to know what it was. Hopefully someone will know what I’m talking about, but if nobody does, then ignore my post. Anyways, these days I haven’t had the time to practice to lucid dreaming, but I have done so before (with a few successes… I think).
Yesterday, I was lying in my bed, trying to go to sleep. I was already tired from lack of sleep due to assignments so it felt quite easy. I was in a relaxed position and I knew I was still awake but very close to drifting off. I closed my eyes and moved my fingers to try FILD (this has worked for me once)… because I had the opportunity to (and I thought of it randomly). Then it happened, the sinking feeling and random noises which I’ve experienced before so I kept calm. When it ended, I opened my eyes, did the reality checks and knew I was dreaming. However, a series of random events happened and I could not control any of it. The entire time i was trying to change the setting (because of the random events were turning out to be a nightmare) but couldn’t. I then woke up really quickly and pretty much remembered all of it (I normally have average dream recall, but this time knew it was different). Anyone know what I was doing wrong?
Sorry for long post.
