I’m a new member to this site, as I’m also new to lucid dreaming as well.
I had this dream last night. The beginning of the dream I was on an island. I think there was some cartoon character with me, although I can’t remember who though. He started to communicate with me. He asked things like “Is this for real?”. He finally concluded that HE was dreaming. For some reason, my mind didn’t click that I was dreaming. And looking at this in retrospective, I find myself incredibly stupid for not realizing this. I was so close too. And at this time, I wanted to Lucid dream. And before bed, I kept on saying in mind “I’m dreaming, I’m dreaming”. I guess I was thinking that if I thought that phrase long enough I would eventually become lucid. Can someone help me out on this? It seems as if I’m close to being lucid, but not quite.
