      kicking a shadow person...... Lucid?

      I woke after 3 hours to try a WILD. After a half hour I just gave up and rolled onto myside to just go back to regular sleep. While on my side, SP starts. It looks like a strobe light is going on really fast and I see somthing that looked like the little alien E.T. from the movie, and its coming towards me. I then am trying to kick this thing and then I put a blanket over my head and keep thinking "when am I going to enter a Lucid Dream". I then wake up fully and I didnt even have a blanket that I put over my face. The thing is, I forced myself awake of this because it felt like I would have laid there for hours in fear and not get Lucid, I could move but I couldnt get up and out. But all this movement I was doing, was I actually somewhat Lucid? If so, how could I have turned this into a actual Lucid Dream.

      I was just reading that many insomniacs, when photographed throughout the night, were actually shown to have slept soundly most of the night, even though they claim not to have gotten a single wink of sleep.. It turns out they were only dreaming that they were awake!

      Kind of sounds like what you just went through.

      your body is virtually paralyzed during your sleep
      likely to prevent your body from acting out aspects of your dreams
      From:
      wikipedia

      “Glands begin to secrete a hormone that helps induce sleep and neurons send signals to the spinal cord which cause the body to relax and later become essentially paralyzed.”

      I find that sometimes we tend to get stuck in dreaming maybe as a result of the above ^, but feel/think we are still lying in our beds waiting to dream. Dream content such as your "hiding under your blanket" & feeling of fear seem apparent.

      Lucid dreaming seems well within reach for you, just try to move around and get past your fear.

      That's some crazy stuff. I used to get his when I would stay up for the whole night, supposedly. Really screwed up stuff happens. Like for instance, this white thing started coming at me, and I was like "WTF!" and threw the covers over my head at 4:00 in the morning, and then I woke up not under the covers and it was 1:00 in the morning.
      I need to go to bed. I do WILD, and its nowhere near the screwed up shit that happens when you try to stay up into the early hours of the morning.
