      Thumbs up Hey i'm RJ!

      Although a newbie to lucid dreaming, in the past 2 days I have experienced a lucid dream and a OBE. My first lucid dream was completely unintentional, randomly having hummus and cheese before I slept (not knowing their value to lucid dreaming), I found myself having extremely vivid dreams, so vivid that I shocked myself awake at 3:30 AM; not ready to go back to sleep yet, I spent an hour killing time (prayed, checked my email etc.), trying to get something out of my throat I found myself almost puking (another random coincidence), I was still not able to fall asleep, until l I did ... without really falling asleep, I saw my laptop right there bright screen and all right by my side, which shocked me as I specifically remembered putting it on the charger and desk before my last attempt to fall back asleep. So I started playing around with it, still laying in bed, room looking completely real, I started to question my sanity and decided to run a google search to see whether I was dreaming or not (don't really know what I expected) , and boom .. full results.
      I was surfing the web while not actually surfing the web and it was freaking me out; suddenly out of no where I hear this melodic catchy tune that I do not believe I've ever heard before (probably heard it once years and years ago but it stuck in my subconscious mind), I freaked out as I've never heard music in my dreams so clearly and vividly before, it sounded like it was coming from the roof and through the walls at the same time, finally convinced that I must have had been dreaming, I decided to wake myself up, it took longer than I expected it to as my body wouldn't really respond, I remembered the song lyrics of that calm song slightly but forgot to write them down and now I completely forgot them
      Waking up confused but with the biggest smile , I regretted not enjoying that experience for longer, and kind of beat myself up for it.
      So I spent all day searching and gathering all the knowledge I could about lucid dreaming, and attempted it all that night. Apple Juice, Bananas, Melatonin, Vitamin B12, Garlic, I chowed it all trying to get a similar experience to what I had the day before. Tried the WBTB method (pretty much what I did the night before not knowingly), but found it extremely hard to fall back asleep after my alarm went on, as I figured although suggested, 6 hours of sleep might have been too much for someone who is usually accustomed to only 6-7 hours of sleep, but that didn't stop me, I was so determined to fall back into a lucid dream.
      Hours had passed and still no luck. I was meditating, listening to binaural beats; nothing, until I dozed off into what I thought was just a day dream, My best friend who I have not seen in a week and some days, as I am on vacation, was there, sitting on my chair, and out of no where a TV appeared in my room and we were playing FIFA. I still had no idea I was dreaming till I noticed the two uniforms of the two teams: both red. Me and my friend are both very OCD and have ended matches when that's happened, so I knew I must have been dreaming, so I look down and I don't see a controller in my hands.. I was controlling it with my mind this entire time, however he had one in his. Thinking I was having another lucid dream I got excited and my brain started producing the fastest frequencies I have ever heard/felt, my entire head was tingling and it actually caused physical discomfort. Determined to push through it, I tried to focus and suddenly saw the silhouette of my body with a controller, and the shock caused me to immediately wake up, with my head still ringing.
      Once again I had woken up with the biggest smile and sense of accomplishment, and decided to try find a forum I can discuss these trippy yet brilliant incidents with other brilliant minds, and here I am.

      For reference:
      I am 18 years old and this is not my first lucid dreaming experience, I was actually very into the habit as a kid.. however growing up I started getting more into the plant of marijuana (as I live right next to BC lol), and have experienced a severe decline in dreaming since, until I came on vacation here in Dubai and decided to quit! If I can master this there is no way in hell I am going back to smoking pot.

      PS. in both these dreams I have been laying on my side and been unable to get out of bed (in the dream); any suggestions as how to change this?
      Sorry about the long post, and thanks for taking your time to read!

      And now I'm curious about the lyrics to that song. Hello and Welcome to Dreamviews. I tend to use binaural beats, as well. Helps me focus (though that is the point of them, I suppose). Anyways, congrats on getting back into lucid dreaming. Being unable to move is an unfortunate problem, but it may be that either you're not fully in the dream yet or that your dream control has picked a rather inopportune time to leave. Best advice I can give, is to will yourself into moving.

      Any other questions, ask away.

      Your frame of mind/chosen thought-forms create the dream around you. These normally carry over from what state of mind you had before you went to sleep.

      Here is a few ideas for you:
      the last thing you are focusing on when you are going to sleep is yourself doing some sort of action which requires the movement of the physical body, preferably something pleasant and familiar to you. During your waking hours, you could try questioning your reality during this activity you have chosen to think of before you fall asleep. This will possibly give you more dream control, and if you end up falling asleep and are unable to keep your consciousness you can possibly still do a reality check while in the midst of this activity. Be confident of your results as you practice!

      While in the dream if you are unable to create a situation from the start where you are already moving, don't focus on the fact that you can't do whatever action it is you want, instead focus your attention on yourself moving rather than the observation that your surroundings seem to be still.

      During your waking hours or in your dream you could also have a friend sit at the edge of your bed or help you out of your bed, with the intention of becoming a familiar dream character who comes in and helps and/or reminds you: "You have the power to do what you will." Positive affirmations are a useful tool for maintaining a certain mindset.

      I hope you attain what your seeking! - Nick K. AKA DJ Dead Llama

      Thank you for these replies!
      I actually just had a free to move lucid tonight! It started differently as I wasn't in bed when I realized that I was lucid (guessing that's why I might not even have attempted to move in the other two); I was actually staring out side my window and something in the dream angered me so I saw DCs being lifted of the ground in a Storm, quickly realizing I was lucid I set them down with my mind and floated around my room before I was awakened .
      One more thing, although kind of weird, could I be my own dream guide? I mean I literally saw a mirror reflection of myself telling me how he was my subconscious, I asked him if he was my dream guide and if he could make me lucid more often, he didn't answer, but he made me lucid tonight so I guess it worked!
