Hi everyone, i discovered lucid dreaming a while back but it was only 3 days ago now that i started to document my dreams. Last night i was lucid after only documenting 2 of my dreams, so i’m quite happy . Here is what i wrote in my notepad immediately after waking:
“I started out in a cinema (can’t remember how i got there) and i was speaking to someone on a mobile phone who was only 2 rows behind (don’t know who this person is). I thought to myself ‘why would i be on a mobile phone in the cinema to someone 2 rows behind me?’. I performed a RC (pinch nose) and could still breathe, i was lucid. Excited, i left the cinema and began checking my hands on the way out, they were distorted. I can’t explain why they just looked different. I then remember lying in my own bed, still lucid, wondering how to get up and explore. This seemed to go on for a while, and i performed multiple RC’s to check whether i was still dreaming. I could then feel the dream slipping away from me, the best way i can describe this is i could see and hear the dream, but i wasn’t inside it. I rubbed my hands, and started to spin around, this had no effect. I shouted ‘increase lucidity’, and the ‘volume’ of the dream i could hear started to increase. I kept shouting, and eventually flew through my window, landing in my back garden. The clarity of my vision was amazing. I went out to the front of my house and jumped into the air. I rose higher than all of the houses in the area, but couldn’t move forwards once airborne. I jumped again, this time onto the roof of my house (it looked nothing like the roof of my house). After sitting on the rooftop for a while, i landed back into the back garden. A DC appeared - my brother. He told me he had to climb the house to get the roof, i tried to jump again to show him how easy it was but found i couldn’t. Performed another RC to check i was still dreaming - i was. Disheartened i went to the front of the house where he lit a cigarette (he doesn’t smoke?). I got on my motorbike and rode away down my street. This is where i started to lose the dream. Suddenly i wake, perform the pinch nose RC, i can’t breathe.”
I began conducting this experiment with a really open mind (i was expecting to have my first LD after maybe a month or so of documenting my dreams and performing RC’s) and it seems to have paid off to have one so early on, my only questions are:
-How do i fly forwards once airborne?
-How do your dreams end? For me it was literally like Inception whereby everything started exploding etc…
-How do i explore other places instead of just my own house?
-The next time i’m lucid, should i take my time more as a pose to jumping straight in to things like trying to fly?
