    False Awakening

    1. Lucid #77 & 78

      I had two lucids during my nap this noon!

      The first one was a false awakening, and the interesting thing about it was that in the FA, I had sleep paralysis. Until now I can't be sure if I had it in real life, or if I had it in the dream. Either way, it felt really amazing. My chest was so tight that I couldn't breathe. I realized that I was in sleep paralysis and I calmed down. I am also proud of myself for remembering not to panic even though I couldn't breathe or move. Of course I think it kinda helped that I have asthma irl, because I knew how to maximize my breathing when I have trouble with it. Anyway in about 2 minutes, I opened my eyes and found myself beside my mom on my bed. I reality checked via noseplug, and I could breathe! I also pushed my finger through my hand and really observed. It went through, and it felt really cool and strange. I looove catching FA's!

      Went out and remembered something a DV member mentioned on here. He was wondering what it felt like and if it was possible to have four arms in a lucid. I gave that a go. I closed my eyes and imagined two more arms sprouting indian goddess style on my hips. When i opened my eyes, they were there, and I could control them the same way I would any other body part. It's hard to describe because it's similar to how you control the movement of one eyebrow or making your ears move it's something you can't really teach or explain. But it was so cool nonetheless. I did a little indian goddess pose, the one with the arms in diffent directions while squatting. Hahaha. Then walked around and lost lucidity.

      The second lucid was spontaneous, and it was one of those "lucidity via dream atmosphere", as I would call it. Just something about the atmosphere that's a bit off, even though everything looks realistic. Kinda like when you go away on a long vacation, and when you come back home, it feels a bit odd at first, if you know what I mean. Anyway, I was outside, and decided to fly with angel-type wings. I've only used those kinds of wings once in a previous lucid goal, but I wanted to try it again. And so I did. I ran on the ground for a few meters, then jumped up and imagined unfurling my huge fluffy wings. I looked to my side and I could hear them flapping every few moments or so. I felt free. I flew back down after a few minutes, and got tangled up in some wires. Lost lucidity some time after that.

    2. Non-lucid Dragon Dream

      I woke up to the sound of screaming people outside my house. I got up and rushed out the door to see what the commotion was all about. There were many people on the streets, all of them riding blue Vespa-looking motorcycles. They all seemed to be running away from something. I looked up, and immediately saw a large purple dragon with very very small wings circling overhead. I thought, "Oh cool, a dragon. Why does it have such small wings?"

      I'm not quite sure what happened, or how it happened, but apparently, I became the dragon. My body felt very heavy, and my arms (or wings) felt painful. I looked down and saw all the people in the blue motorcycles running away from me.

      I didn't know exactly how to fly, so I started plummeting towards the people down below. I tried to tell them that it's me and I won't hurt them, but nothing came out of my mouth, except a misty and warm fog (and yes I really felt the warmth!)

      Not sure what happened afterwards. I don't remember ever hitting the ground.
