Hi everybody. New here, just thought I’d introduce myself.
I’m 43 years old, and had my first lucid dream about eight to ten years ago, not too long after seeing a program on television about the subject. My very first LD was by far the longest and most intense one I’ve ever had, though a couple of others have come close. I was so much in control, that I was able to stop and think about what the actual date was, guess the time of night, and even guess what position my body was lying in while still remaining 100% in the dream. The entire thing lasted for a good 10 minutes or more, and I found I could do almost anything I could think of.
It was a long time until I had my second, and several years before there was any kind of regularity at all. Now I typically LD about once a week, though it is usually no longer than 30 seconds. Only occasionally do I get a really deep and lasting one, maybe up to 5 minutes or so if I’m lucky.
I’ve talked to many friends and family members about it, but hadn’t really thought that there might be a community out there somewhere where people exchange ideas and experiences. So here I am. You guys seem friendly enough so far.
