I have been trying for lucidity for about a week now. I used to have Lucid dreams all the time and they have stopped a I grew older. I made it a habit to do Reality checks whenever I wake up, not because I was thinking I’d have a false awakening, but just to make it a habit. Well, this morning I woke up several times, doing reality checks to see if I was asleep or not. Every time I checked I was awake, until one time. I was thinking to myself “No point to do a reality check, I know I’m not sleeping”, I was about to go back to sleep but then at the last second I decided to pinch my nose. I could breathe! I couldn’t believe it at first, but I was dreaming. It was so hard to move around my bed, but it was so real, I thought I was awake, but I wasn’t. I looked around but it was just so hard to move in my bed, I said “increacse lucidity!” to see if things would work better but they didn’t, so I used some technique I read about. I remembered to imagine something that would take me somewhere else. I imagined a mirror, and put my hand into it, then allowed it to warp me into my bathroom and I could finally move. I stared at the ground and spun around just to make sure I would stay in the dream, and I did. I was so excited that I just wanted to start exploring. I walked into my living room and my parents were there, so I told them I was dreaming. I then went back into my bathroom to see if I could make myself look all buff in the mirror, haha. I went outside and decided to spawn a watermelon, I wanted to enjoy something to eat as I dreamt so I did. I think started thinking of other stuff and wanted to transform into something else, so I turned myself into a long dragon and hovered/flew above the ground until I ran into someone else.
Unfortunately, that’s when the lucidity began to fade and it turned into something else, seems I forgot that I was lucid and it turned into a regular dream, but it was amazing! I can’t believe how real it felt to do that reality check in my bed and be able to breathe, I thought there was no way I could be sleeping. Thx LD4all for teaching me some things =] Hope I can make it a habit to keep doing reality checks in my dreams!
