    False Awakening

    1. WBTB, lucid dream, and possible sleep paralysis

      by , 03-05-2016 at 05:42 PM (My Dream Journal)
      Last night was a very, very interesting night. I woke up at 4:00 to do a WBTB, and I stayed up for about a half hour, writing down my dreams and keeping my mind on LDing. When I went back to bed, I used the MILD technique. I wasn't very tired, but once I had repeated lucid dreaming mantras many times, I was ready to go to bed. I imagined myself in a dream walking home from school. Several times my brain drifted away, but I got it back on track pretty quickly. Then I found myself imagining I was flying along in the hallways in my school, thinking about lucid dreaming. I'm not completely sure if that was a dream or not, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't. All of a sudden I felt and heard a loud pulsing in my ears. I was terrified, I thought I was having sleep paralysis. Nothing happened. I made a note to myself, if it happened again, I would open my eyes to see if anything was different or scary, like in sleep paralysis. It happened a few more times, and once I remembered to open my eyes. Nothing happened. I was just in my bedroom, like normal. Somehow during all this I managed to fall asleep, thinking about lucid dreaming. In my dream I was in my technology class in school, completely naked. I thought it probably was a dream, but I was still rather self conscious. Hiding myself under a desk, I started talking to someone. She ignored me. It had to be a dream. I stood on the desk and shot out of the room up into space. Stars were everywhere, but there was nothing else. I wished to see Earth, and all of a sudden the plant shot out of nowhere, and I was back at my house. Although amazed, I decided to stay down on Earth. I began flying around in my neighborhood, using the bouncing on air method. I saw a mom, not mine, waving to me down by my driveway. I landed, and asked her where she was going. All she said was "goodbye." I said "not even a goodbye kiss?" and she bolted away over the tops of the trees. In the dream I was still lucid and had been doing reality checks to make sure I didn't sleep back into unawareness. But somehow the scene had saddened me. I did not know the person at all, but it somehow it had made me extremely emotional. I laid down on the ground and started crying. I thought to myself, if I keep crying like this, I'm going to lose my lucidity. At that moment, I was back in my room, and had a false awakening.
      This was my best lucid dream yet! I'm really excited to do another WBTB tonight, and I'll report tomorrow on what happens.
    2. Lucid Dream!

      Ok, last night was an interesting night, but you'll need some background information to understand it. In real life, I got up at 4:30 am to leave on a trip. I decided to go to sleep in the car so I could count that as a wbtb.
      I don't remember much of my dreams from before I left, but after a left, it got pretty interesting.
      I had a false awakening of me waking up and sitting up in bed. My sister is just waking up too, but for some reason she says that she is going to take a snooze on the couch. I check my watch and see that the time is 4:11. I am confused, I thought we had already left. I wonder why I am not in the car. Then I say, "That can only mean one thing!" And I do an RC. I stick my finger through my hand, and what do you know? I'm dreaming. At that moment, I feel extremely happy. I pinch my nose and take a long breath. (As RelaxAndDream suggested.) It feels really cool. I guess I forget my LDing plan, because I decide to fly out of my house through the ceiling. I try it, and the ceiling sort of breaks apart, but I can't fly through it. Instead, I decide to fly around in my living room. (It's really tall and has a slanted ceiling.) I start to fly, and I'm really happy because my dad is watching, cheering me on, and I'm not falling. Sometime in the middle of my flight I pinch my nose and breath again. Once I am finish I land on my back on the ground, and greet my dad. He looks like Dumbledore, but is wearing my dad's sweatshirt. I try to transform him completly into Dumbledore, but it doesn't work. (I'm loosing my lucidity at this point.)
      I then have a false awakening, this time in the car on our trip. We stop at a gas station to go to the bathroom, but we accidentally go into the dining room. Because of this, dad lets us get breakfast there. I get a waffle and a cup of cherries.

      This is gunna be shorter because I accidentally deleted it all,and I'm too lazy to re-type everythihng again.
      I'm at last night's Democratic debate, but the candidates aren't there, in their place are two sets of three kids that are going to speak. I'm wondering if kids can really go up there and act like politicians. When they start speaking, the people in the audience star chanting "really" and the moderator throws two pieces of candy to the people in the audience. When I leave, I see my grandma and my old music teacher. I start running away from my music teacher (because I hate her) and then turn around and go back to my grandma.
      False Awakening:
      I wake up and do my usual morning routine: eat breakfast, unload the dishwasher and blah blah blah. I am really excited because I am thinking that today school will be canceled, so I keep checking the school website. I think that school is canceled because of a post I see on the school website, but I realize that it actually says something about "pigs and "1008" 1008 is apparently the year of when it was posted, so I was wondering if my school was THAT old.
      Anyways, we still have to go to school, so my mom is driving me and my sister to her friends house to pick her up. We have to pick up her two sisters too, both of which are wearing gymnastics leotards. I am wondering why we are picking them up now, because I thought we were going to get them during the summer time. (In real life we're planning a trip with her in the summer)
      Quick note: I was just realizing that ever sense I have bee working on having LDs, my dreams have become more realistic, AND I am questioning unrealistic things that happen in them.
      Finally for once, I don't have a dream about my fish!!!!
