Hey guys, long time reader, first time poster.
Yesterday I experimented with LDing for the first time. What I did was lie in bed till I got sleepy, then closed my eyes and just focused.
You know the Windows screensaver that has stars flying past the screen? Well that’s what I saw except the stars were red and there were a lot more of them. I kept focusing on this image until a new one formed.
The new one was circular, like I was looking at it through a telescope. I tried to focus in on it, but it just flew away. Eventually I just fell asleep. What was that? It wasn’t a lucid dream because I wasn’t asleep, but it was a spinning image…help…confused… Was I close to LDing?
P.S The red flying stars thing…I can see them whenever I focus at any time. Like if I’m sitting in class and close my eyes, I’ll see them after a split second when I start focusing. I can see them right now if I wanted to. Does anyone know what they are? Are they normal?
