Hi from Belgium,
I started trying lucid dreaming 5 days ago. What I have been working on is basically just remembering my dreams when I wake up. I thought it would be a difficult task as I have not been able to recall any dreams for years now. I am actually going to spend the night at a sleep lab in a nearby hospital on july 25th. I never cared about remembering my dreams until my doctor asked me about it last month and I realized I never recall any.
After researching the net, I found a lot of material regarding lucid dreaming and decided to give it a try. Amazingly enough, by using techniques I have read about, I was able to remember bits and pieces of dreams these past few days. Today, I had a terrible nightmare and although I did not realize I was dreaming, I was conscious I could fly. At one point I decided to fly above a building and realized it was too high and if I fell, I would kill myself so I was even debating with myself whether I should do it or not. I decided to do it and noticed I was really good at it and was not scared of heights anymore.
What is really funny is that I was actually in Harry Potter’s school and he was standing right next to me telling me “see? it’s not that hard! you’re going to learn so much here. Wait and see!” The only Harry potter movie I’ve seen was the first one back when it came out so I don’t even know why I dreamed of that!! Isn’t that amazing how far the brain will go to retrieve information?
The flying part was cool but the rest of the dream…absolutely not! However, I was able to remember it all. That’s a start!
Voilà!Have a nice evening!
