      Was it a lucid dream?

      He guys! This is my first post on this site, so i'm not sure i'm posting it in the right catagory, but anyway!
      Last night i had my first lucid dream, i think? Anyway, i became aware i was dreaming and started doing things, having and orgy, flying and what not. And this would have been my first lucid dream. But at no point in the dream did i do a reality check, at no point did i ever feel myself waking up because of excitement.

      And then when i woke up i just felt like i had dreamt about myself being lucid, without actually being lucid. Is that possible? Because it was like i was playing a character in a movie that knew he was dreaming. Pretty strange.

      Welcome haffi2812,

      Uh, I'm a bit confused, were you lucid or not?? because you said that you were aware that you were dreaming then started doing things and if that's what happened then yes, that was a lucid dream.

      BUT if you woke up and felt like you were lucid dreaming but you were not lucid dreaming then probably not unless you forgot that you were lucid dreaming, that happens but it's rare, I think.

      Hope this helps!

      Also, it's VERY common to wake up because of excitement

      Sorry if i made this confusing. But i'm just wondering if you can dream about being lucid in a dream, without actually being lucid at all.

      Yes, you can. It may happen quite often, after you start practicing for lucid dreaming and thinking about it a lot. It's because you start having better awareness thus you start having even some logical thoughts in your dreams. Not sure if you had that happen to you before. I never had any logical thoughts, until I became interested in Lding.

      Sometimes it's really hard to tell if it was a dream about being lucid or LD. best indicator is when at some point you realize you are dreaming. You said you did that, so I'm leaning towards lucid dream.

      happy dreams

      What's up haffi! Welcome to DV!

      Short answer is yes. It was a lucid dream. If you know you are dreaming, you are lucid.

      ^^^^ long answer. Very good read

      I haven't RCed in like 30 LDs. Excitement doesn't always happen either. It might have been a less vivid dream which is why it seems weird. I would recommend getting recall up.

      PM if you need some more help.

      Usually if you dream of being lucid (which it sounds like you did) that means actual lucidity is just around the corner. When it happens, you'll know - when somebody asks if it was a lucid dream it probably wasn't. When you really become lucid it's accompanied by a feeling of profoundness and excitement and feels like nothing you've ever experienced before.

      Ohhh, I'm having something similar. I know I haven't had a LD yet, but still, I get really confused. Because I think to myself, "Hmm, I'm sure I wondered whether I was dreaming in that dream." But this is always in the middle of the night, in that in-between state, where you're half asleep/half-awake, generally all over the place and so I'm thinking, well maybe I'm only just realising now that I was dreaming, now that I'm awake, but am I fully awake? And then in the morning, I'm like, "I'm sure I knew it was a dream, I had this feeling..." but I know it definitely wasn't lucid and like I say, maybe I was awake when I thought those things? I hope this makes sense. I know for sure that they aren't lucids, but hopefully I'm getting there

      @Lula - That's why you should get in the habit of always following the question with a reality check: "Am I dreaming?" *nosepinch* *fingerpalm* - nope, guess not (or Oh Hells Yeah!!)

      One of my dreamsigns is being on Main Street, and yet I always seem to drive there without thinking to RC - but tonight for the first time I did remember!! I wasn't dreaming, but the fact that I remembered to
      RC is good and means I'm getting better.

      Thanks DarkMatters I totally agree and I'm trying to get into the habit of doing RCs IRL. But I'm kinda new to all this and I'm getting a bit of an overload of information from these fabulous forums :p I'm also not sure when and how often I should be doing RCs. Like I read somewhere on the website that you shouldn't just do RC's randomly, you should do them when you see something strange? But then others have said you should keep doing to get them into a routine, so it filters down into your dreams? I'm only doing RC's pretty infrequently at the moment and I've only been practicing for a couple of days, so I guess I need to step it up a notch.

      I guess you just have to find the way that works best for you after trying a few - I do them randomly throughout the day when I think of it - maybe 5 or 6 times a day (sometimes more, sometimes less) and I try to always do them when I encounter a dream sign. My dream signs are my mom and sister, my old friends I don't see anymore, dogs, and Main Street. Plus sometimes after reading through my DJ I notice more and add them.
