    LD: Convincing stubborn DC's that this was MY lucid dream/An exercise in dream control

    by , 08-07-2012 at 06:22 PM (734 Views)
    I was floating in the air with Tanya, Philip, Sarah, and Kierra when I suddenly became lucid.

    I decided that I wanted to begin my dream by asking them some insightful questions. So I blurted out the first thing that came to me. I turned to Sarah and asked, "What is the best thing about me?"

    She countered back, "Well, what's the best thing about me?"

    I said, "Hey--this is my lucid dream. I get to ask the questions."

    But she decided to be difficult and not answer. So I looked to Tanya. I asked again something like, "What's something good about myself?" I looked at her with pleading eyes, because I wanted her to answer the question. She looked back at my eyes and finally answered, "You're sincere." Ok...I would be satisfied with that.

    I then asked both Kierra and Philip the same thing only to have them ask the same question Sarah did.

    I started getting frustrated. I said, "Darn it. This MY lucid dream. And I'll prove it."

    I stuck out my arm, and said, "If this weren't my lucid dream, could I make my arm glow?" And for a second I was worried because I had never tried to make my body glow before. But my dream powers cooperated and soon my arm was bright.

    I then said, with my arm still out, "If this weren't my lucid dream could I turn my hand blue. And I focused on my hand until it turned blue.


    "Or could I make my hand big?" And soon my hand was growing and strangely large.

    "Or could I make it small?" And I then strank it until is was about half normal size.

    "Or could I make it white?" I turned it a ghostly white.


    Then I decided that I had done enough. I was feeling quite satisfied with this little exercise in dream control. I needed to move on. I wanted to try to go through a mirror again since this has been giving me trouble that last few attempts.

    I found a mirror. It was cracked in a few places. I think I was in what was supposed to be my aunt's house because she was suddenly standing with my in the hallway. I decided to run at the mirror and try for the spot that had the largest unbroken area.

    I took off running only to hit the mirror. Instead on bouncing right back I kind of hung there for a moment before I rolled myself down off the mirror. I tried two more times with the same result and concluded that I would probably never get through a mirror again since I had somehow developed a mental block.

    I decided to try to fly to the moon by going outside and just flying up. I was a little surprised that my dream was lasting this long, but I didn't want to waste it. I knew from past experiences that the quicker I run from one goal to the next the more focused on the dream I was and less likely to lose lucidity.

    It was night outside. I could see so many bright stars. The night sky seemed magical. I was in a city. I had come out of a large building. I saw a bilboard in front of me. It had Mickey Mouse and was an ad for Disneyland. It made me smile. I looked around and saw several more signs all for Disneyland. It made me feel really happy about this place that I had found. I started flying upward. I suddenly heard a conversation on the ground below of a man talking to a boy about finding this certain destination. I tried to follow the conversation, but never was quite sure what they were talking about. It reminded me of the odd audio hallucinations that I sometimes hear right as I am waking up in the morning.


    And it was right after that that I suddenly was awake. And my alarm went off about 20 seconds later.

      Why can't the people in our dreams just accept that it's our dream, and we know best? I've had to deal with it too, kind of annoying, but not too bad.

      Tell me about it. What does it say about our minds that most DC's are less than helpful? Every once in a while I'll get lucky and have a good one around.
