okay so first off: last night was the first night i started my lucid dreaming quest, im sort of doing a lazy version this week as i have finals and because next week im going serious LD style, im going to buy a specific journal and pen to only use for writing down dreams and i have already picked out a couple hypnotic-ish songs that really put you in an out there state.
Anyways, last night i decided to do this exact “workout” i told myself i would dream tonight, that i would remeber the dream, the dream would be lucid, and that i would countdown from 100, when i reached 54 i would have a dream. So as i counted down from 100 every 5 numbers i would say one of my steps ; i.e. 96, 95, im going to dream, 94, 93,92, 91, 90, im going to remeber it. I reached 54 a couple times with nothing, around the 5th try my body felt like… numb i guess, it was like i knew i was in bed but i couldn’t move, and at the same time i knew i wasn’t in a dream because i could think, i also could’nt open my eyes. Another weird thing is if i thought of doing something, or basically did something in my mind i would sort of “feel” it, like i imagined flying, and i almost felt as if my body was moving through nothing… like air i guess. ALSO, another really weird thing was that during this my body would randomly like jerk, my arm would just shoot up a bit then fall back, but i could feel it but at the same time i coulld’nt, and even a couple seconds after the jerk i wondered if it really happened O_o
It was really weird but cool, i’m going to try this out tonight, i also didn’t remember my entire dream, but i remembered one piece of it(at first i didn’t think it was a dream until i thought about it) : I woke up in my bed(in my dream) and i heard my cat meowing, my mom then told me that determing how the cat meows it determines if i have a voice or an acting voice.(the hell ?!?O_o)
Anyways, yah, that was my first night at this, i can’t wait to fall asleep tonight
