      Was i close?

      I have been having a hard time trying to lucid dream and at the moment my hope for lucid dreaming has been decreasing .
      Then suddenly...*the story*:
      I was looking at my hand telling my self "i will lucid dream tonight!"
      ..when i was in my regular dream my hand popped right infront of my face then i screamed: OH MY OH MY! IM IN A DREAM! IM DREAMING.

      Then the dream because a bit vivid (not much,maybe just 5%)
      Then i was trying to make myself wake up inside the dream,trying to fly,trying to control stuff

      But i realised that i am in no control ,
      Almost like i havent succeded and the dream wasnt fully a Lucid dream.
      But i was bery happy to have a step further into my goal!

      So can anyone tell me how to master this technique ?

      Well, here is some good news. You did it! What you had was a DILD. When you screamed: OH MY OH MY! IM IN A DREAM! IM DREAMING. That's a dead giveway of realization that you are dreaming. And that is the only requirement for a dream to be lucid.

      Control is not a requirement. Sometimes you have it, sometimes you don't.

      So just keep practicing to have more of them. Have a goal of what you want to do in a LD. Good luck and happy dreams

      Yes sir you did in fact have a lucid dream. Here's some tips for the next time you do. Don't scream and get too excited, that will only make you wake up faster. Instead, firmly acknowledge that you are dreaming. Take it slow, don't rush around, and don't tell every person you see that you are in a dream chances are they already know. Instead of trying to fly right away, maybe try jumping really high, that's always fun . And remember to always keep calm. Another thing you can try which is relatively easy is to make fire with your hands.

      Quick question though. Why would you wanna wake yourself up?

      Ehehe , well to be more honest i didnt actually scream, i was just surprised that I did the DILD for the first time so i realized im dreaming and i was happy ,but it didnt seem like a lucid dream,it was Not vivid, i didnt feel any change..
      I didnt wake up after knowing its a dream,infact the dream continued on after i realised im dreaming!
      So i tried to control it and stop everything but it didnt work out , its like my dream is giving me a troll face !

      Thank you for your advices! Im going to try this again while i can
