Last night I had the most crazy experience ever. I woke up at 4:30 am to feed baby and was not going to go back to bed because my alarm was going to go off at 5:30 but at 4:52 I decided I would go back down for 30 mins because that is certainly enough time to have a lucid.
Well…I had 6 FA’s in a row! In each one a I became lucid and it lasted a couple mins then I would wake up again. The first FA was the only one that I did not become lucid in and then all the others I would become lucid and then go flying.
In one of them I decided to look at my hands for an RC after I pinched my nose. My hands were COMPLETELY normal. I counted all the digits and I had 5 on each and then I tried to push my hand through the other and it wouldn’t go! In hindsight I was missing my rings but I still was lucid and amazed at how my hands were so normal.
Then it gets really weird, On my last FA turned Lucid I was getting tired of having FA’s and I was reminding myself that I couldn’t get trapped in my dream worlds and that my RL alarm was going to go off any minute. So I realized I could just wake myself up. I started telling myself “Wake up Autumn, it is time to get up.” Over and over but it wasn’t working…I tried blinking and shutting my eyes, I tried thrashing around and telling myself to wake up. None of that worked so I went over to my DC husband and asked him to say “Autumn, it is time to wake up” He looked at me confused and said it anyways but it didn’t work so I asked him to hit me. My DC hubby was appalled and said no! I told him that it was okay…that I was dreaming and it wouldn’t hurt me but he kept refusing and saying “But what if it isn’t a dream!!!” So Finally I just started SCREAMING " WAKE UP NOW AUTUMN!!!" Then I started to feel my limbs tingle and POP my eyes open. I immediately pinched my nose and was not able to breath, I peeked at the clock and it was 5:29 AM.
So unreal…but what is even more unreal is the conversation I had with my husband just now. I told him about my experience and once I got to the part of me asking him to hit me to wake me up his mouth dropped and he said “I remember you asking me to hit you…” I said “you mean I was talking in my sleep?” and he said "No I was dreaming that you were asking me to hit you to wake you up but I wouldn’t do it because I was afraid it wasn’t a dream and that if I hit you then you would divorce me so I was too afraid you would leave me if I did it!!!
Now, on a side note not only does my husband think LDing is kind of strange but he never remembers his dream. He swears he doesn’t even dream because he never remembers them. I was shocked. I don’t know if that is a shared dream or if maybe I was really talking in my sleep and he was hearing it then dreaming about it.
It was intense.
