I have been preoccupied with life and haven't been able or even tried more the a few times to wake induce lucid dreams (WILD) but i have been working on doing regular reality checks to help me induce lucid dreams while I'm sleeping. My dream recall is weak and I remember only 1 dream a night at the most so i have been keeping a dream journal to help with that.
I can remember when i was younger having quite a few flying dreams that i guess were lucid but pretty much it would just wake me conscious then i would ride it out till i woke up. Now I'm learning that i have total control so I'm really trying to figure it out. I had my first totally lucid dream about a week ago.
It started off with 2 really crazy dreams in my apartment the first one was quite long and it even got stressful and i tried to wake myself but it didn't work and i had a false awakening. So i woke up in another dream that was similar until it got stressful again and i tried to wake myself and i had another false awakening which is strange because i never even remember having one false awakening before never mind 2. Only reason i knew about it was from reading in a lucid dream book. So then i woke into my third dream came into my office and my brother was sitting there and i started to tell him my dreams and i was like wait a second something doesn't seem right... Reality check! and boom i was totally lucid.
(It was strange that in my other dreams i thought to wake myself up instead of do a reality check because i just wanted out when the third dream was the most normal but i thought to do a reality check)
I was like sweet and said bro im gonna try and conjure some stuff so i held out my hand and said sword! and a second later this little dagger formed in my hand it was really strange it took shape then all the texture filled in my bro laughed at me cause it was like a 3 inch blade a dagger if anything i laughed and dropped it on our desk. It was totally empowering i couldn't believe it i stuck out my hands and said bamboo stick and a 4 foot stick formed in my hands within a second or two. Next i stuck out my hand and said firecracker and the smallest firecracker formed i was like boo so i thought a box of firecrackers would be more fun so i conjured a box i think i was gonna light them off but i got caught up in the conjuring fun hah. I stuck out my hand and said handgun... a pretty sweet handgun formed and i pumped the clip into the wall just to see if it would work i don't remember noise but it all seemed so real it was awesome.
(On a side not i am not sure why i was conjuring weapons I'm not a violent person by any means quite the opposite i think it might be because of all the video games i have played and my first two dreams involved unwanted guests coming into my apartment.)
It was funny my bro was just hanging out with me through this kinda smiling at me like finally you figured this stuff out but at the same time i knew he was just a creation of my mind it was really weird. I was like lets go see if i can fly we went out on to my balcony and i leaped off i didn't really fly more like floated down to the ground in front of our apartment. I landed softly he was standing up on the third floor cheering for me. Just as a landed the hottest blond chick i have ever seen walked past me. I was thinking time to pull a superman i took her in my arms and thought I'm gonna fly back up to my bro, I concentrate jump everything is going good until i am half way up and then i get "distracted"... honestly i started to get a 'hard on' lack of better words and it woke me up lol.
I woke up totally empowered (not because of the chick because of the lucid dream!) it was a great feeling quite exciting i really want to master this skill i think it would be great to practice real life skills and communicate with my subconscious and what not.
Comparing these 3 experiences they all felt quite different the first one was like a oobe it has this strange feel to it a lot different then in a dream state.(From what i have been reading it seems i was just going into the realworld plane and its like noobland for astral projection) The second one that about Virgina tech was all images and feelings it was like i wasnt actually there i don't know how to describe it... and the lucid dream was like any other dream except i was lucid and and full control and knew who i was and that i was actually asleep and it was all in my head.
I really would like to go farther down this path and it seems that lucid dreaming is a lot easier then astral projection i have this ebook to read about astral projection and its huge so i figure thats a start. I already feel i have to tools to be able to lucid dream every night its just gonna take some practice and apply myself. With astral projection I feel like i have so much to learn about chakras and meditation it is kinda scary compared to the dreaming but I'm still very interested.
I have a cool story about telling my mom about this but i will write that in the next post.
