    02.04.2015. DILD: wonderful, long lucid #100, jogging and flying around a beach and a seaside town.

    by , 04-02-2015 at 09:50 PM (1072 Views)
    Went to bed at 23:10 for 30 min, then at 00:00. WBTB at 04:40 for 20 min. While lying down, rehearsed the Raduga separation technique and made my affirmations. Had mild anxiety and stayed awake for quite some time (over an hour). At some point, I realized that I was looking at a seaside scenery and the image was quite bright. I quickly imagined bringing my hands forward and moving in the scenery.The vividness of the scenery increased and I was there, walking in the seaside street. Yes! I was so happy! I remembered the jogging TotM and decided to keep on walking and observing the scenery. I was walking on a dirt road and on my left was a beautiful sandy beach.
    A few bushes were on both sides and beyond the sea, I saw a strange silvering mountain with some kind of flag on top (if that was real, the flag would be huge) that changed shape as I was looking at it. I kept walking and the scenery didn't change a lot, apart from going uphill and downhill and passing by a few trees. Then I noticed that I was being followed by 2 old men. I felt uncomfortable, so I stopped and pushed them both down - knowing its a dream, so it's not bad to do so - and kept walking. I then reached the edge of a really high cliff.

    I jumped and started falling really fast. I feared that I would loose visuals as I was floating very high off the ground, so I concentrated on the feel of the air on my hands - that strangely I could feel on my left hand only. Just before touch-down, I glided forward and flew straight upwards. I was over a seaside town and I was trying to maneuver my flight. Having some difficulty, I grabbed the (imaginary) parachute controls - that I had successfully used in another lucid - and started accurately directing my flight. While on air, I tested all movements and I saw that turning left-right and stopping worked immediately, but gaining height had some delay and didn't always work as expected. So, I continued to fly over the house-tops and through the seaside village, immensely enjoying my flight - even though the control was not perfect.

    At some point, I felt that my parachute got stack -at an antenna? - so I just let it go, fell on the roof-top and jumped back up, imagining a new control and continuing my flight. At this point, I think that I lost some of the initial lucidity. Some kids are looking up and admiring my flight, so I land and say: come with me, I will show you how to do this. We walk and we come at the same dirt-road I was in the beginning and there were the 2 old men. This time I recognized them as my Father and my Father-in-law and I was very sorry for what I had done... I hugged them, asked them to forgive me and they said: it's ok, go show these kids how to fly! So we walk further trying to find the high cliff - but it's not there anymore. We reach a home and get inside, where in a large hall there are lots of kids asking me if I can fly and how to do it. I said: you first need to know that you are dreaming - and I demonstrate to them a positive finger-through-palm RC. One-by one they successfully try it (one also extended his fingers), so we conclude that we are all dreaming and I say: come with me to show you how to fly! But as we move outside,
    the dream fades and I am back in bed... I tried the Raduga separation technique but I was quite awake. Tried to go back to sleep so I could have another Lucid but I soon realized that it was late and I was well rested, so I got up and wrote this down, very happy for my Lucid!

      Nicely done. The simple joy of flying in a lucid dream is often overlooked.

      I had a lucid dream (I think it was over a year ago now) where I taught a group of kids to fly, much the same way you were going to do so here. Shame the dream faded out before you got to the good part, but all the more reason to go back.

      And it was your 100th lucid dream. That makes it extra special.

      Thanks Jade! It indeed was special - and very enjoyable - to me!

      I have flown with my own kid as few times before - and showed them how to control the flight - but such a massive RC and then flight lesson would have been be a first...

      Btw, my 8year old son is also learning to LD and yesterday he had his first well-controlled flight in a lucid!

      Raduga separation technique
      What's that about, please explain? I see he's written a book or something when I did a Google search. How you entered the 1st dream seems similar to something I'm reading and experimenting with.

      One-by one they successfully try it (one also extended his fingers), so we conclude that we are all dreaming and I say: come with me to show you how to fly!
      That's some good interaction with those kids!
      Great lucid dream

      I wish my parents taught me to LD when I was 8... It's so much easier to get good at it when your little. If I ever have kids, I'm gonna offer to teach them.

      Hi Tihiti!
      Michael Raduga is a Russian guy that has written a free e-book in which he treats LD and OBEs as the same thing. In his book, he has many induction techniques - with the first one (the indirect technique) being supposedly very efficient and easy. It is basically a variety of DEILD in which as soon as you wake up from a dream, instead of trying to remember your last dream and re-enter, you immediately imagine movement and if successful you feel the movement and separate in an OBE style. If not immediately successful, you cycle some imaginary separation movements (for 1 min) until one of them produces real movement - and you separate. For me, this has proven the most effective technique ever but lately my practice has been quite difficult due to anxiety - but I am working on it. Btw, entering this particular lucid had nothing to do with the Raduga technique ( except perhaps as an awareness maintaining exercise). And yes, it was a nice, memorable lucid !
      Jade, you are basically right. Kids do get it much easier and I also wish my parents had taught me to LD. But that's not always the case. My 6year old daughter almost never remembers any dream - and gets annoyed as we talk about our dreams upon awakening. I have tried to help her, but it seems that she just wakes up very abruptly and she forgets everything...
