Share your first lucid dream, or your funniest!
Talking about problems figuring out to fly in lucid dreams in another thread got me wondering about other people's lucid dream stories!
Lucidity has always been a defense mechanism for me. I first went lucid as a kid in a nightmare where I was being chased by this horribly frightening panther that happened to be dressed up as Weird Al Yankovich. I swear, I was terrified! So I became lucid and decided to have none of that. I morphed myself into a panther dressed up as Weird Al and chased my persuer away. I then lost lucidity and finished off my dream in a less scary manner.
Anybody else want to share their first lucid dream experience? Or a funny one?
My coolest was the one I had last night, detail here: http://www.stevepavlina.com/forums/p....html#post6675. A close second was one I had a few weeks ago where I realized that I was dreaming, and then tried to interpret the dream as it was happening.
There was one I had as a child where I knew in my dream that my real body had to use the bathroom. I tried to wake up, but would wake into another dream. I would walk out of the room, spot something wrong, get irritated I wasn't "really" awake, go back to bed, and repeat the sequence a few times. I finally woke for real and relieved that I would be able to relieve myself.
So happy to find others
I was about 6 years old and I too was having a nightmare.
I decided that the only way to get out of the nightmare and wake up was if I saw the big face of a monkey going "ohh ohh ahhh ahhhhhhhhh!!"
It worked, and that's what I did whenever I had a nightmare after that. Although I don't remember when I stopped seeing the monkey..
hahah a monkey!
My 1st Lucid dream is also a funny one =D
I was in an apartment of some kind being chased by an FBI agent with a gun who turned out to be Condoleeza Rice (lol dont ask me why). Anyway, she chased me down the stairs of this apartment until I reached I dead end which turned out to be a small room with a toilet and a window which I couldn't get out of. Suddenly it came to me that I was dreaming and became lucid so I became invisible and drifted through the wall to see Condoleeza slowly approaching the room which I was in with her gun ready thinking I was still there, but I was right infront of her.
The hell with this, I thought, so I jumped throught the wall and starting flying (I've had flying dreams before where I was aware, but not completely in control and 100% lucid, so i knew what I was doing) and played around with my flying speed trying to go faster then ever before! So fast that it scared me a little =)
So I was pretty excited and getting all arrogant, I wanted to see what position my sleeping body was in. I felt my body and its position in the bed and shortly after that I woke up... happy to have my 1st completely lucid dream!
Having read through about lucid dreaming I now realise I had one 10 years ago (for about 5 seconds). I didn't realise what it was at the time, but it gives me hope that because I have done it once I can do it again.
I was dreaming that I was about to kiss someone. Suddenly my dream slowed down and I heard really slushy violin music playing like in a bad romantic film. I somehow realised I was dreaming, and because it was so bizarre and my dream was so silly I started laughing which woke me up.
It's never happened again - but now I know what it was I would love to do it again.
First lucid dream
Oh, it's so cool that you asked, I had my very first lucid dream a couple of months ago. I try to remember my dreams and think about them, but this is the first time I have been able to influence a dream. It wasn't any kind of huge special dream or anything, but it was just amazing that I could change it.
I was dreaming that I sold the house in the suburbs and moved into a small place in the city. I had a little fenced in yard with a dog - at first the dog was a big yellow lab, but then I realized I was dreaming and STILL IN THE DREAM, I changed the dog to a smaller one, and tried out several different dogs until I got the one I liked. It was just so cool because I'd think about the dog I wanted and it would appear in the dream. I was really having fun with it.
I haven't been able to do it again but I sure would like to.
I'd love to hear about other's experiences!
Reading a bit about lucid dreams, I believe I had one(the first and last one) 5-6 years ago when I was still in high school.
I went to bed being very tired, and as soon as I felt asleep (or maybe a few minutes later) I got up and felt something was strange, i was in a dream but I was aware of my presence, i was not merely an observer. I started walking in the apartament, then I wanted to go through a wall, but didn't succeed, went back to bed, and then I woke up. I felt really good when I woke up, as I realized I had control over that particular dream. Unfortuantely that was the last lucid dream I had.
I was talking to a psychology student one day who told me that in lucid dreams you can summon persons.
I happened to have a lucid dream one night and in it remembered what the student told me. I tried it out and it worked. Strange thing was that the summoned person had black hair whereas in reality the person was blond (yea,yea,it was a woman).
Monkeys and Condeleeza with a gun -- priceless!!
Lol! Some of these are hilarious. Good work :)
I've been having lucid dreams on and off since I was little, so I can't really remember the very first one. But since being educated on lucid dreams, my first "official" one was cool. To me, anyway. :) Who's ever played first person shooters where someone turns down (or ups?) the gravity, so when you jump you kinda "float", like you're on the moon?
I found I could do that without really trying. I was pretty darn happy I was lucid, shouting at all my friends saying "i'm dreaming!!, haaa!!, i'm dreaming!, wooo!" while bobbing around in midair, rebouding off trees and fences. I then started running up to random people and dancing the tango with them (and i can't dance the tango). I was at my high school at lunchtime, so students were everywhere. Then I saw this girl who I kinda liked, who I admired from afar (oh, to know the Mystery Method back then, LOL), and I started running up to her at this insanely fast speed, then I grabbed her, was about to do the greatest make-out of all time, but then woke up.
1st lucid dreams
So my real first lucid dream was when I was much younger and suffering from falling nightmares. One time I finally had it and decided to land. And I did! I then went on to save a princess and battle a giant octopus.
Many years later (approx. 1.5 years ago), I had my first 'adult' lucid dream. I was in a car with friends, driving around a downtown holding a big bag of weed. We started running into police roadblocks until we got surrounded. I had been thinking about lucid dreaming a lot and realized that I might be dreaming. But I also realized that if I wasn't, I was about to get my ass seriously kicked :eek: . But, seeing no alternative, I got out of the car and intended for the cops to disappear. They actually became like cardboard figures that I could knock over. The dream quickly changed, I fulfilled some 'adult' fantasies ;) , and after some weird encounters, I woke up feeling totally energized. Reality has never been the same since.
It wasn't my first lucid dream, but definately the one I'm most proud of. It was one that took place in a certain white house. I've dreamt of the house for years-- it's a combination of Victorian lighthouse keeper's house that I know, a friend's home, and an aristocrat's manor. It has dozens of wings, all dark and quiet, an warehouse-sized haunted library, and dozens of winding, close staircases. Whenever I dream of the house, I invariably panic and try to run away from the nameless, formless pursuer that lives there.
In this particular dream, whenever I tried to go up a staircase, I would find the top blocked off with a heavy sheet of glass and be forced to turn back. After a few minutes of this, I gained lucidity and stopped running. I demanded that whatever was controlling the house show itself to me. A small boy crept out and admitted that he'd been the one blocking off the staircases. I was furious and summoned up the boy's parents so they could punish him and prevent him from doing it again, and I woke up smiling.
I haven't dreamt of the white house since then, though I'd rather like to. I think that were I not blinded by fear I would find it a pretty interesting place to explore.
Haha, Mine was a funny one . .
I was being chased in a big, cluttered house by a man.
I stopped dead, turned around and told him, "Hey, this is a dream, you can't hurt me."
He said, "Yea, but I can scare you." and he kept chasing me.
I was like 18.
My funniest dream was sometime in the past year, I don't recall. I actually established a bit of dream control, but, well, not enough.
I was safeguarding some fugitives, running after them while putting myself between them and the pursuer. Anyways, eventually, I took control and decided to turn and stand my ground. The weapon of choice was, apparently, a blade, so I drew my sword as the enemy advanced.
The "sword" was about six inches long.
The attacker had a fairly standard sized blade and immediately began to slice me up. It hurt. So I woke myself up, recalled it, and started to laugh at myself. It was as if I had punished myself for thinking I was a match. Moral of the story: don't be a hero! :p
The first I could remember
I was in a building in a busy downtown city and all of a sudden alarms were going off and it was being evacuated. Some type of chemical/poison was released somehow. So as I exited the building, I am standing along side a busy one way street; traffic coming from right to left as I was facing across the street.
Looking over, I see a woman with a red sweater sitting on a bench looking at me inquisitively and I at her. I start crossing the street and continue to ponder why she is examining me so closely and the significance. I get to close enough to her (but not out of the street), and realize and say to her, "I'm dreaming, aren't I?!" After this realization, I turn and face the oncoming traffic and see my car coming towards me (driver unknown)...in real life and in the dream, I had a sticker on the hood that said, "Satori". I yelled "Satori", banged my hands on the car and realize it drove right through me. Then I was standing in more oncoming traffic, but I couldn't hold onto the lucid state and was wisked away into unconsciousness again.
My first lucid dream involved a large buffet of unpleasant foods. When I was seven-ish, I had a series of lucid dreams which were interconnected. This was when I first learned the technique. I had a staff which could emit lasers, and eventually, I learned to emit lasers from my fingertips and no longer needed the staff. This was my reality check; if I could emit lasers, I was dreaming.
This wasn't a lucid dream, but it was amusing nonetheless. I was standing in the library, blowing my nose very noisily into a tissue. When I finished, I turned around and was shocked to see a man staring back at me. I apologized for being disgusting. A moment later, I handed him the tissue and said, "Do you want it?" He said, "Yes!" and took it.
The first lucid dream that I remember happened a month or 3 ago. I was outside, going shopping or something. I thought to myself: 'Ey, this can't be right. I should be in bed sleeping. This must be a dream! Lets find out if it is!'
So I started running, and a few seconds later I flew! Weee :D Next thing I remember is that I was in some sort of parking lot, I kicked a few cats and disabled some vehicles. That's all I remember.
Only had one lucid dream after that, I'm still not getting the hang of it :(
Pooka, I have a lot of house dreams, too. I wish I was lucid in more of them, because then I could memorize their layouts and go find an architect after I wake up!
Had a dream turn lucid last night which only happens rarely.
I recalled that flying is popular and gave it a try.
I wanted to go straight into the air but that didn't work. So i started to wave with my arms and managed to get off the ground a good bit. Quite funny feeling.
first and hoped for
In my often-recurring dream, I was always being chased by lots of men with big rifles. (I had been reading Carlos Castaneda a lot while awake, so this time I) looked at my hands, and recognized that I was consciously affecting my dream. I popped up from my hiding place behind a boulder to confront the posse, and was promptly shot in the head. I lay there thinking, hmmm, I wonder if I'll wake up dead? Shortly thereafter, I lost my virginity, and never dreamed about being chased by men with guns again.
Lately I've been inviting my mom to visit my dreams; I would like ask her what has been going on for her during her five years of being dead. She does show up a lot, but somehow I always wake up without having gone "live" in these dreams with her. It's nice to see her, but a little frustrating. Writing this down, I can see that perhaps I've been resisting. So I'm giving up my resistance, right here and now, and invite you, Yolanda, to come on over tonight while I'm sleeping and let's have a chat about the afterlife! We'll have Kahlua!
Once every couple months I have a very realistic dream where I can fly. It's kind of stupid, because I just start flapping my arms and I am able to fly all over the place.. LOL.
The interesting thing is, they seem extremely real, they are in full color, and it actually "feels" like I'm flying. You know, the kind of feeling you get when you're in a taking off jet. I can look down from a high altitude and see the world just like I would if I were in an airplane.
When I wake up I can recall all of it too. Weird.
I've had lucid, or near lucid dreams since I was a kid, although for the past 8 years or so I forgot. I remember when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade I had my first flying dream. I got the inspiration from a certain Mario Nintendo game, there's a character who jumps and floats for several seconds. I was dreaming I was at my school playground and I started showing all the other kids how jump and float.. It was quite fun, a bunch of little kids floating a few feet off the ground during recess!
Since then I've graduated to better forms of flight :) Everytime I dream about flying, lucid or not, the next time I do it I can fly much higher and much faster. I believe I'm near jet stream height, and I can get up there from the ground and then back down to the ground in just a few seconds.
Recently I had a lucid dream where I was quite busy confronting fears and performing spiritual feats unheard of in my waking life, and I got to a point in the dream where some people in my immediate family arrived.
I was still excited about being lucid and explained to them that I was dreaming. They quite calmly explained back that I was certainly not dreaming and that they were real. In order to convince them I said, "If this is real, then how come I have 7 fingers on my hand?" and sure enough I had 7 fingers on my right hand as I waved it in front of them. They were real good sports about it, and accepted the fact I was dreaming.
The few times I've confronted dream characters about them being dream characters, they usually come to terms with it and acted quite calmly, I don't know if I could be calm if I was in their situation. :)
The funniest and scariest dream i've ever had was when I was very young. I had this dram about a gorilla wearing orange shorts in my house and was terrorizing all of us. We finally barricaded it in the bathroom and we called the police. the policeman went into the bathroom door and ended up getting killed. Then the gorilla broke out and started terrorizing us again. Then I woke up and I swear the gorilla was sitting in the chair next to my bed. Then I couldn't get back to sleep. It was scary then, but funny now.
So I had my first lucid dream in a long time, this morning. It was really boring, though. I was alseep in the passenger seat of a car, which started driving itself. This really annoyed me, until I realized, wait, cars aren't supposed to be able to drive themselves... So to test if it was a dream, I tried getting the car to glide. It did, and then I woke up.
3 seconds lucid, tops! :D But hey, it's better than nothing, right?
A funny one was when I was thirteen years old:
My dream turned lucid...I thought, "Hey, I'm dreaming, I can do anything. I'm going to call Chad!" He was a kid-- two years older than me-- who I had a HUGE crush on. I would never have had the nerve to call him in waking life.
I was dreaming that I was in my house...I went to the telephone, started to dial his number (on our rotary phone)...but my fingers started to feel tingly...and then I saw that my fingers were MELTING. I got totally freaked out and hung up the phone. DRAT!
I have been trying to have lucid dreams lately, but I only manage to become half lucid and do only stupid stuff.
I have also conditionned myself so that my first thought every morning is to gather as many memories of my dreams as possible (works very well).
So the other day, I realize I am dreaming, and think "wow, this dream is so clear, I have to write it down before I forget!" So I rush to my room, grab the notebook by my bed and write everything down in detail...
Of course when I wake up, the notebook is blank and I can only remember this last part of the dream :rolleyes:
Maybe I should condition myself with another first thought, or this might happen again...
My first lucid dream
I am standing in my old bedroom in my mother’s house I lived in until I was 15. I see a rustling in my bed, and look over at it, and my wife pops out form under the covers and invites me into bed.
I would normally go ;) but something doesn’t seem right, and I say “I’ll be back”. I go into the hallway and walk to the living room. The entire house is dark. It’s nighttime. Once in the living room, I notice something strange on the wall. I think the strange thing on the wall is a deer antler rack, rather than the dreamcatcher my mother has hanging on the wall. Instantly I think to myself “I’m dreaming!”. I go to the front door because I want to explore outside a bit. There is a huge massive padded sort of reclining easy chair sitting there in front of the door. I pick up the chair and throw it across the living room. I open the door, and start to open the screen door, and think to myself “I wonder if I can walk through it?”. I walk through the door, experiencing a feeling like painful electricity from each of the screen door holes as I pass through. I get out into the front yard, and decide to fly. I simply shoot straight upwards into the air, no Superman style takeoffs. After about a full second of shooting up into the night sky, I stop and am hovering over the entire town. I see all the lights from the town and remark to myself how beautiful city lights look from hundreds of feet in the air. I decide to try and manifest stuff in my dream. For whatever reason, I decide to myself, “I’m going to conjure up a beautiful naked woman”. I start to see a weird mist forming in front of me, and it is barely forming into the form of a beautiful naked woman, that I realize it is working and I wake up instantly from the “excitement”.
Wow, that was your first lucid dream? Nice. I have a hard time walking through things, even screens!
