I am Michael, from Austria, Vienna, 35 years old, 6f3 and 290lbs, lifting weights, MMA K-1, videogames and getting out with my friends to get drunk and have fun, thats my life.
Dreams were always a very important thing for me, thats probably because since as a kid i very often had great dreams i very often woke up and wished to continue those dreams and of course always remembered them very well (…sure i had also terrible nightmares which made me sometimes being scared of falling asleep).
One night in my middle twenties, i had a dream and all of the sudden went aware of it without waking up, i found out that i have the power to just taking off the ground and flying around in the sky…and it was not the same like flying around in the sky in my usual normal dreams where i can fly, this time flying around in the skies while being aware of dreaming, that feeling was…so real. From that moment on i planned to have that expierience every night. And it went well, LDs were happening more often and i discovered that i can do the wildest things i never thought being possible, sh*t i was even able to create other persons/characters in my dreams. The funny thing was that i didnt even know that there is a term for it “Lucid Dreaming”, i remember i once told it to a few people and they thought i bullshit them, they couldnt understand what i told them, since then i never talked to anyone about it again and kept it to myself, accepted the fact that i am probably a freak or some kind of “dream warrior” which isnt accepted by society, but this also made me feel superior to all those who never have the joy of lucid dreaming.
Well well those LDs happened mostly in times when i thought about my dreams during daytime, sooner or later it had to happen that i just did not had enough time or was too stressed to keep thinking about those things during daytime so i just kept focusing on it when it was time to go to sleep, but from that moment on until today my LDs didnt last as long or occured that much often like in my middle twenties when i discovered it, when i had all the time to focus on my dreams during daytime.
The reason for my LDs being way too short is the fact that, since they do not occur that much often these days anymore, everytime i become lucid i get so amazed and hyped by the feeling that within the next seconds i wake up…but at least i still become lucid at least once in two or three weeks, as i said…every moment being lucid…even if its just a few seconds…is an amazing feeling which cant be compared to anything else in life.
