      I once did Carlos Castaneda's, also known as the Hand Technique, where before going to bed you sit up and look at your hands and say something like "The next time I see my hands in a dream, I will become lucid." Well I had a dream where raccoons were attacking me (I have dreams where raccoons are attacking me often), but when I looked at my hands, they were all blue and beat up because of the raccoons biting them. That was the closest I've ever been to becoming lucid.

      I was walking to the bus stop, and I thought "Oh, damn, I forgot my bus pass!", I started to walk back, and then thought "Wait a minute, this is a dream, I don't need a pass." I didn't really become lucid, because I didn't think about the fact that it was a dream after that. No control over my body or the dreamscape.

      When I was teaching some people about LDing, I had an LD in which I was asked what I was doing. I lied and said that I was doing a reality check. "Can you honestly tell me that you are not dreaming at this very moment?", I asked a dream character. He said that he couldn't honestly say that. "Exactly", I said, unless we consciously question reality when we're awake we'll never question it when we're actually dreaming."

      I was lying about doing an RC. All the while, I was dreaming. If I'd taken my own advice, I'd have become lucid. That's one of many near-misses.

      In my last dream I was watching my friend in a video saying "I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming."

      All I did was go "Wow, dude this video sucks. The directing is horrible!" -_-

      The stupidest one I missed was the one on the day I had my first lucid dream (and it appeared in my first lucid). It was a the simple words "Lucid Dreamer" etched in the concrete of two different locations.

      When I was first reading the book "Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming "by Stephen Laberge. I had a dream that I was walking around in a library It was more clear and I had a sense of awareness but I wasn't lucid. I remember pulling a book out of the shelf and reading all about lucid dream and how you can have one and what it is. I remember waking up and feeling like a complete idiot not realizing then with all the information shown in the dream that I couldn't even recognize that I was dreaming *twitch*

      A week or so after I first became interested in lucid dreaming I had a near miss. I performed a reality check which involved changing the colour of a wall (stupid one i know). I couldn't change it so instead decided to go to my house and see if i was in bed or not .. I got to my house, checked my room, and my bed was empty... "ahh, cant be dreaming after all"... Just to make sure however i asked the family if i was dreaming or not.. They said no.. and i said... "Oh, nevermind then"...

      Once in my dream the world was flat and I fell off, and landed in a huge tank of killer whales then exclaimed "Someone needs to save these whales, they don't need to be in a tank", without ever becoming lucid.

      I've had two dreams with whales in a tank and neither one became lucid. Maybe thats a dreamsign of mine

      One time i was explaining to a bunch DCs what lucid dreaming was and i said "I could be dreaming right now... all i would need to become conscious would be some sort of dream sign" You can expect how pissed off i was that morning.

      Heh--I agree with ya' there! I had a dream I was telling my brother and mom about RCs and what to look for when you're dreaming. I did a nose RC and it worked, but I insisted it was just 'cause I wasn't pinching it hard enough or something. Meanwhile my brother decided he was dreaming and poured applesauce all over his head, changed the colors of his eyes, etc. I went through the rest of the dream believing I was one of his DCs. It was actually pretty cool, but still insane that I didn't become lucid.

      I wrote in an earlier thread, that I had the radio on and they were talking about LDing on Coast to Coast AM...I heard the radio in my dream and everything, but I didn't get lucid at any point. Ever since then, I try to do an RC everytime I hear something about LDing.

      ok so last night I had two dreams which I remember but I didnt think of doing reality checks....so you would think at first when I was climbing up a mountain it may have seemed a little strange, maybe not...but then I fell in a pool of water and I was thinking "oh no now im gonna be all wet" and i pullled myself ashore and i was completely dry. So at that point the idea of reality check still hadnt crossed my mind and it still didnt when time would stop after people said something cool and my vision would go black and white. Instead of thinkng "oh I should do a reality check," I was thinking "oh man! thats so cool how is this happening??!"

      Last night I had the power to see through walls and doors but failed to become lucid. Many times I've flown and not realised. One really stupid time was when I was in a blank screen and the site LUCIDITY.COM was right in front of me. Gahhhhh!! Oh another one was where I was about to have a pee on a train full of passengers where my seat opened up into emptiness.

      1. When dreaming that I'm lucid.
      2. When teaching my friend how to become lucid.
      2. When using the Eiffel Tower as an airplane to fly. WTF !
      Currently practicing WILD. I quote Kaniaz who said it best: "The point of WILD is to piss me off". Though, I have not given up, far from it.

      Last night I dreamt that I was in a bedroom with naked guy, a dog and a dolphin that had the head of a scottish terrier.

      How the HELL did I not question this scene?

      A week or two ago I had a dream where I attended a "reverse-funeral" for a guy I knew that died about 10 years ago. He was somehow brought back to life. Sure, he looked a bit rough but, how the hell I didn't question that one is beyond me. Plus, the scenery was in a glass building on the ocean's edge with huge waves crashing over the building. The water was so beautiful.

      The fact that we were all gathered to meet and greet our old friend who was dead but now isn't was quite weird and should have been obvious.

      The most intelligent thing I had to say was: "You're looking good, Jim. Glad to have to back."
