Hello, I am new to this and I’ve been on this message board for 30 minutes looking for what I’m talking about, so I thought I would post in here.
I took a nap after staying up late the night before a few days ago, and instantly after laying down began to feel fuzzy, I knew I was going in and out of sleep. Soon after this (a few minutes I’d guess) I was dreaming. I was in the passenger seat of a car with my friend, and we were parked in a grocery store parking lot with the windows down. A lady came up to the window and started talking to my friend but she was making absolutely no sense, but my roommate could understand. I knew something was up, and, after reading about lucid dreaming a few days before, said in my head, “Waaaait. This is a dream.” Instantly everything froze in my surroundings and I began very slowly zooming towards the driver window. I felt like I was being held tight for some reason. I noticed that everything around me was so vivid and everything was so quiet. Then I began to worry about my body sleeping in my bed, that I would stop breathing (because I was laying on my stomach), but just said “oh well” and continued. Right as I thought “Ok, now let’s try something!”, somebody in the hall outside my room (I’m in a dorm) slammed their door, and I woke up.
Was this an LD? I really think it is because I was conscious in my dream, not just realizing I was. I was worried about my physical body. But I think the reason I felt like I was being held was because of my body laying on my stomach. Anyways, I know this is a long post and you guys get a lot of these, but any help would really be appreaciated. Thanks a lot!
