    Lucid Dreams

    1. A Chance To Test Out My Power!

      by , 01-15-2014 at 05:14 PM
      In relevance to the title; often after becoming Lucid I follow the story line from the original dream to keep me entertained. However some dreams don't test you to your full potential, fortunately this one did.

      I was having a dream where me and my brother Robbie where on the run from some sort of Korean army, (about 30 blokes, some in jeeps and tanks.) We were running over some hill top with them in pursuit when we came across a little abandoned shed. We ran and hid in the shed, but it was so small Robbie was freaking out. He ran out the shed and unfortunately was seen and shot. More so though they had seen him come out of his hiding place and all stopped outside. I could see through various gaps and holes in the sheds panels exactly what was happening. They knew I was inside and the were coming right towards me.

      This was the point where I became lucid as I was panicking and just about to wake myself up, therefore realising that I was dreaming. Now lucid, I stayed in the shed and watched them approaching. As the first person reached the shed he pulled out an RPG, and put the end through one of the holes in the shed right in front of me.

      What happened next was inspired by something I had seen in a film; X-men First Class. In it, a character called Sebastian Shaw has the ability to - "Absorb the energy of any impact he is struck by, including not only direct physical blows, but also the impact of bullets."

      So when the rocket was fired directly at me, I almost caught the force between my hands and squeezed it down to nothing. I also have a video for you so you can visualise it


      XMen Sebastian Shaw - YouTube

      After I had effectively absorbed the first one, several more followed, including multiple shots at the same time. Between catching the RPG's I had made a force field shield around me with my bare hands and was sustaining it with my mind. My vision was constantly quite blurred and chaotic, as you can imagine from the video, but I could still see out towards the rest of the army standing in the background a few hundred yards away. I stuck a hand out, whilst deflecting bullets with my other, and literally crushed the remaining men and vehicles at will with my hand.

      This happened until there was nothing left but burning vehicles and mangled bodies. It was quite an epic display of power, although hard to describe. Though I did wake up feeling great about myself. Thanks for reading!

    2. Waking yourself up experiment. Anyone ever tried this?

      by , 11-30-2013 at 04:25 PM
      Last time I was on this site I was reading an entry from someone who was saying they were afraid to Lucid Dream in case they couldn't wake themselves up. To me that's not a problem as even before I knew about LDing I could force myself awake when something bad was happening - so I thought id experiment a little.

      The other night I was in the middle of a non-lucid dream, and things where getting bad, (This nowadays is where I usually become Lucid and change it.) But on this occasion I wanted to wake myself up differently from normal, no forcing myself awake. Normally I force my eyes open from within the dream and kinda feels like i'm sucking myself out of the dream.

      So when shit started going down I tried to find a different way to leave the dream. Now lucid of course, I walked through an alleyway and into a little corner shop style thing. It was dark and dingy and like a little old sweet shop. I spoke to the lady at the counter, a tiny little, very old Chinese lady, looked almost like a witch sort of character. I said to her whilst looking at all the different sweets and stuff lined up on the counter and in jars -

      "I need you to give me something that will wake me up."

      She took a moment to think and pottered around, and come back with a dark blue sphere shaped sweet. I was well aware that outside the shop was still very hostile and coming closer. The DC handed it over and nodded assertive and reassuringly to me. I popped it into my mouth and swallowed it whole. Instantly my vision went funny, bright colours in a spiralling black tunnel, It felt like I was being pulled backwards through the tunnel head first. Only about three seconds later I was awake on my pillow, slightly shocked, but it worked! How amazing was that!


      So yeah I thought that was a pretty cool experiment, and something new to me. Worked just how I wanted it too though and would be interesting to see if that style works on anyone else, (I know most people don't want to wake up from LDs,) but if they did then give it a try or let me know ways you have tried!

    3. Awareness

      by , 10-14-2013 at 05:47 PM
      Just wanted to say I was particularly pleased with myself this morning. I am still very much learning and normally I realise I am in a dream when something bad happens; being chased, ghosts, deaf. At which point I would take over Lucidly and change the nightmare. However last night I impressed myself by becoming Lucid by noticing something much smaller - See I can drive but I don't have a car. In the dream I had forgotten something and was driving rapidly back to my house to fetch it, then It dawned on me that I couldn't be driving if I don't own a car, and became Lucid from there. Good progress!

    4. My 8th Lucid Dream, Got Stuck Again...

      by , 06-23-2013 at 12:52 PM
      Saturday Morning 22nd June 2013

      I have lay-ins at weekends and Saturday mornings are an ideal time for me to Lucid Dream. I've been struggling for results during the week still as I'm just too tired and waking up early for work.

      Anyway, I started with a false awakening, completely and utterly unaware that I was dreaming. I was in my house walking down the stairs, I would say about 6am. I was so convinced it was real I remember tip toeing down the stairs to avoid waking me parents up! As I got to the bottom of the stairs and looked into the kitchen I could see bags of shopping all over the floor. I knew this couldn't be right because mum always packs it away as soon as she gets it. I did the holding nose reality check, (my personal favourite,) dreaming!

      I walked to the bottom of the stairs, and suddenly I was stuck against the wall to the side of me. I was in like a crucified position flat against the wall, arms out. As much as I tried to free myself, I just couldn't.

      I've had this problem before in - Part Two - Following On From My Fourth Lucid Dream / False Awakenings! - Dream Journals - Lucid Dreaming - Dream Views - but I don't know why its happening, or what is actually happening, maybe you can help?

      However, remembering back to when this last happened to me, I know that struggling gets me nowhere. I leaned back against the wall, closed my eyes, and calmed my mind. I told myself when I open my eyes I would just walk away from the wall. I open my eyes and slowly part with the wall.

      Once I'm free, I run fast out the front door to avoid that happening again. It's a unbelievably windy day outside, I could feel the wind against my face. I jump up high and fly above my house, I stay hovering above my road. In one of my previous Lucid Dreams I was making fire in my hands, but manage to wake myself up accidently. So whilst hovering, I put my hands out in front of me, palms down, and quickly twist my hands upwards. As I do so I have two burning balls of fire in my hands. Once I have them I take a second to look around and it dawns on m that there is no-one whatsoever around. I decide for a scene change, close my eyes and spin around.

      I am back in my bed, dammit use your imagination man! So I get up out of bed, and just as I walk a couple of steps towards the window....Robbie's alarm goes off, (in real life,) and wake me up! F***s sake!
    5. My Second Lucid Dream

      by , 05-16-2013 at 11:54 AM
      Thursday Morning 16th May 2013

      I decided to use the Wake Back To Bed technique as that was how i achieved my previous Lucid Dream, and suits my schedule at the moment.

      I can't remember exactly what it was i noticed to know i was in the dream, but it was a struggle to stop myself slipping back out. I kept saying 'This is a dream,' followed by rubbing my hands, and it was still fuzzy. I then said,

      "Improve dream quality" (which i'd seen somewhere else)

      After that demand the quality was incredible, so good i almost thought id woken up again, thanks to a quick reality check i knew i hadn't.

      I had arrived in a busy market square on a lovely sunny day, the detail and colour was amazing! I decided to start again by practicing my flying, again like Sunfire (see previous entry.) My skills had improved a little, but i thought i'd try something different. I'd read flapping is quite effective, it didn't feel as cool but it worked so hey!

      The next scene i remember i was in a Bank, somewhere in the market square. I was looking around when suddenly i remembered the Task Of The Month. I thought my best friend Jamie would be most appropriate for the 'Prank A DC' task. So i thought of him, turned around and there he was bless him.
      When he wasn't looking i bent down and started tying his laces together. Unfortunately he spotted me and said,


      "Stop that!"

      I thought i might as well test my powers to force the issue. Still crouching down, with my left hand i used my mind to hold him slightly off the ground but completely still, with my right hand i used my mind to tie both his laces together with just movements of the fingers. I put him back down but he was being stubborn and refusing to move! I signaled to some guy behind him to just give him a push. He obliged, with Jamie tripping over himself and face-planting the floor.

      As funny as it was, i'm not gonna count that abysmal attempt, need to think of something smarter next time!

      After that i took a wonder outside, it was night time now, a nice clear night. Outside there was a big wooden table, with a parasol, like the ones in a pub beer garden. There where two girls stood there doing a BBQ. They had sausages on sticks, the stick was going right through the sausage like a kebab. For some reason they were holding the sausages over the BBQ until they caught a purpley/yellow fire, then eating them.

      I approached the girls and asked them,

      "Can i show you something?"


      They agreed. I took one of the sausages on a stick which was still on fire. I held it upright infront of my face, pointing towards the sky.

      I knew what i wanted to do but didn't know if i could pull it off as a novice.

      I then flicked the bottom of the sausage as hard as i could, off the stick. It went flying miles into the night sky, a trail of small yellow flames behind it. As the sausage was going out of sight, i expanded my hand, all five fingers as wide as i could, the sausage exploded into a huge purple and gold firework lighting the dark, followed by a loud bang, BEAUTIFUL!

      They were very impressed, as was i! The next thing i remember it was daytime again, still sitting round this table.

      A guy called Lee came out, who i'm friends with in real life. Turns out the girls i tried to impress were already taken! It was apparent the trouble was just between me and Lee. He stood up and tried to shove the table at me,

      (Baring in mind the size of it, a human probably couldn't even move it in real life.)

      I was quite angry at that point and i flipped. I stood up and put all my effort into shoving the big old table back at him (as if i was pushing a broken down car.) It took a lot of force to get the movement started but i built up speed and ran the table, with him sat on the other side, right across the road! I tried to ram it into a wall but he managed to jump off and run away.

      I tried to chase him round some housing estate but he disappeared pretty quick. I spent a bit of time practicing my flying whilst looking over the gardens, but to no avail.

      I tried to wander back towards the previous scene but this is where i lost my lucidity.

      I was so happy with my second Lucid Dream particularly the firework bit, that bit was really a incredible moment!

      Thank you for reading, feedback appreciated.
    6. My First Lucid Dream

      by , 05-15-2013 at 12:18 AM
      This is my first Lucid Dream since I've been researching techniques etc.

      (I think i experienced more when i was younger but never really knew)

      I started writing my Dream Journal about three days after researching very thoroughly on Friday Night 10th May 2013

      Tuesday Morning 14th May 2013

      I found myself standing outside a train station somewhere, a random one. Out the front i was stood on a fairly high platform overlooking a courtyard type area. I took my time to look at my surroundings and that's when it hit me!

      "Wait a minute...This is a dream!"

      Now i had done my research, and i knew i had to be confident..

      I took a step forward, followed by a dive off the platform! I went free falling towards the courtyard, but before i hit the ground i managed to pull up with the force from my hands!

      This is how I'd been planning to fly. My inspiration randomly came from an X-men character called Sunfire, hence the name. He can fly by shooting like a flame jet out his hands (see profile picture), similar to Iron Man i suppose.

      I was delighted. I then headed to the local park to practice my hovering and flying. Flying was a bit tricky trying to get my hands to aim properly, but i will work on that.

      I then had the pleasure of meeting Simon Cowell who was strolling past

      I caught up with him and asked him proudly,

      "How does it feel to be in my dream?"

      To which he gave me a shrug of the shoulders,

      "It's alright."

      I then proceeded to have fun with this character and asked him to sing me a song (expecting probably a pop song or something.) He obliged with..

      "Dum Dee Dee Dum Dum Dum Dum Dee" (roughly) (whilst doing like a conductor thing with his arms!)


      I thought this was most amusing!

      After that entertaining episode i saw my sister Jodie running towards me across the park, not in an aggressive way, probably just to say hello. As she got within a few meters i couldn't resist it..I stuck my hand out (like in Star Wars) and 'Force Pushed' her back the way she came, very effective!

      The next scene is where i lost my lucidity, i was trying to make my brother stand still so i could do something painful to him, Haha. Unfortunately he refused. Now i'm not an experienced Lucid Dreamer so so if anyone knows the answer to the next bit i'd be very grateful..

      Did i lose my Lucidity because he said no and i was concentrating to hard?
      Or had i probably already lost my Lucidity hence why he said no, because i no longer had any control? (i think probably the latter)


      Anyway, thank you for reading, i hoped you enjoyed it! I sure enjoyed me Lucid virginity and look forward to dreaming and posting more in the future.
