      First lucid dream experiences

      What did you experience on your first lucid dream? I want to hear about what you did when you first became lucid, what method you used to get it and in other relevant info.

      I can't remember my very first LD. I've been trying to LD for years but didn't do it seriously untill a few months ago.
      The first LD I've written down was incredibly short. The only thing I did was rubbing my hands to make the dream longer. It did work, but not very much.So it wasn't spectaculair.
      I used DILD.

      Did you do anything before you went to bed?

      I can't recall my truly first LD, but I can remember my first LD since I've been trying to have LDs.

      Anyway, it was interesting. It was vivid, but not in the typical way. Rather than being able to focus on everything clearly, it was a little blurry, almost as if I were moving at high speeds. However I felt as if I were part of everything around me, the colors, the people, everything. I recall riding a bicycle at a leisurely pace while talking with someone before suddenly falling through the ground and into my house! I decided to manipulate the room I was in, so I changed the color of the walls, some of the contents of the room, and turned on some music (though I didn't have any kind of music-producing device--this happens sometimes in my LDs, so I've come to refer to it as my LD Radio). I conjured up the person I was talking to earlier, and then I woke up.

      Subsequent LDs have been a lot more interesting. This first LD was before learning any kind of induction or relaxation technique, and I think it had been triggered by the first time I had ever read anything about LDs--it was an excerpt from something by Stephen LaBerge that I found from StumbleUpon. And that one little article and LD got me encouraged to pursue LDs.

      As for method, I don't recall any. I just suddenly noticed that I was dreaming. I didn't do anything special before going to bed, everything was normal. I just had a LD.

      Though, I can say that my LDs are most frequent when I don't have to wake up from my alarm clock. On the weekends when I can sleep in until 9-10am are typically when I have a LD, because of the longer and more frequent REM cycles.

      My advice is to just keep trying and don't give up. You'll have one soon enough

      For me lucid dreaming was a sideffect of astral projection. My first lucid was me standing in a train station waiting for a ticket. The person infront of me dropped some money and i bent down to help them pick it up. When i stood back up i was aware i was dreaming. No triggers just aware that i was still sleeping in my bed. I was so excited the first thing i did was start jumping up and down shouting at people waiting to board the train. I passed by a mirror during my excitement at saw my reflection clear as day. I was like yeah thats me alright! then i woke up. :-)

      In my first attempted lucid dream, I just realized I was dreaming. I was thinking about the movie inception while i was inside the dream, and this led me to realize i was dreaming. I lost stability and woke up soon after. It was cool though. I remember feeling the grass and being amazed at how real it felt

      My first was MILD. I put a lot of effort into autosuggestion and Reality Checking. (autosuggestion is where you tell yourself something over and over again)
      I got that after 2 days (my second night of sleeping after finding out about Lucid Dreaming).

      It was all down to the effort, and I suppose the excitement too. I very badly wanted to Lucid Dream, so the fact it was constantly on my mind helped a lot (Which is technically part of the MILD technique).

      It was a short time of lucidity, but it was amazing. I was in my room, I realized it was a dream after looking at my light switch and remembering that there was a Reality Check related to a light switch.
      (That's an important thing to note by the way. It isn't the Reality Check that makes you lucid, it's the idea you associate with it that makes you lucid)

      Anyways, I just jumped around the room a bit (jumping in a way that verges on flying), then I went to climb out my window, and the excitement just woke me up. I should have kept myself calm.

      Good stuff. I also have been trying the same techniques as you slash but to no avail. The only thing i dont do is write in a dream journal, i have a few written down but nothing consistent.

      My first dream was a WILD. After trying for countless days and hours I had managed to become sleep deprived. One day I laid down for a nap and that was when it happened.

      Within minutes I was daydreaming and suddenly felt a strong surge through my body (sleep paralysis) and then began getting the auditory hallucinations. Hearing my bathroom rattle, I heard a train and all kinds of loud things which scared the shit out of me. Then I felt like I was getting sucked into a black hole, my body felt elongated and stretched. Finally it all stopped. And upon opening my eyes I went from being in my bedroom to a vast dreamscape which I will never forget. I stood up and tried jumping up to fly with small success. My excitement soon overwhelmed me and I woke up.

      My first LD occurred in high school when I was in geometry class. I put my head down and fell asleep on my desk, then in my dream I was in a large grey room. The ceilings were about 50 feet up and the room was massive, and in the middle me and some guy were sitting at a table. He leaned over and said "You can do anything you want to." In sort of a 'just-so-you-know' kinda fashion. At that point I realized I was in a dream and this was my first time being lucid. I then proceeded to fly straight up through the roof and right when I crashed through the ceiling my heart started beating really fast and I got too excited and woke up. I remember it being an amazing feeling when I first realized I could essentially do whatever I wanted. Haven't been lucid for a while tho :/

      I just had my first LD last night (2months since I started trying) using the MILD technique. After trying some other techniques, I've been sticking to MILD for the past week. When I lie down to sleep, I tell myself that I will realize than I'm dreaming, probably through a sign or through someone making me notice, and that I will do a reality check afterwards.

      I was sitting on a black van with a lady I didn't know, and she asked me, "What's wrong with the sun?" with a really serious face. I did not understand her question, but then I looked up and there were two suns. I though, "I must be dreaming." I immediately looked at my hands; they were blurry. Then, I started to look around me, but everything started to spin and fade out. I guess I got too excited. I tried to rub my hands to stay asleep, but I ended up waking up.

      My first was a DILD. The guys in the flat below me were partying into the early hours of the morning so i could really get into a deep sleep. Just ended up snoozing for most of the evening which is probably why i was able to LD. I remember sort of flying around the room bouncing off walls, but i think i overdid it as i lost lucidity within 30 seconds and went back to talking with Eddie Murphy as if nothing had happened xD

      My first was a DILD that I had at a young age, maybe 10. I didn't record it so I can't remember when. I became lucid during a nightmare, but all I used it for was to wake myself up. I thought about it for a bit and concluded that me thinking about the dream was part of the dream, since you can't be self-aware in dreams, right?

      Right?

      I'm still slightly disappointed that I missed the opportunity to discover such a fascinating pastime at such a young age.

      Mine was MILD. In this, I teleported, summoned a girl, summoned a door leading to a whole room filled with books and used the kamehameha.

      Any questions about lucid dreaming? Drop me a PM here!

      My first lucid dream happened on accident before i even knew what lucid dreaming was. It is still one of the most vivid dreams I've ever had. I dont remember becoming lucid, i just was in the dream, looking at my hands and knew i was dreaming. i turned them over a few times and took in all the sensations. I felt like i weighed nothing, but i could feel everything more vividly than when awake. I remember thinking about how intensely everything glowed, as if somebody took the saturation bar on my eyes and increased it by 200%
      I was on a beach and there was a car on fire in front of me. i pointed at it and it exploded and raindrops made of crystals fell onto the beach. I jumped into the air and began to fly and got so excited i woke up.

      After that dream i was obsessed with lucid dreaming. Didn't have another for months, and never had one so vivid and real until years later.

      In my first ever lucid dream that I trained about 6 months for - I got a blowjob from some woman down an alley. That's it. LOL.

      I became lucid because my dream repeated 3 times, it was like a video game, because I kept failing to "find a gun then steal a car" (I would always crash or get caught by the cops) on the third try I thought, "hey.... why have I done this THREE times?!"

      But yeah my advice on anyones first lucid would be to touch/grab/taste the closest thing next to them (hopefully not some woman down an alley) this will stabilize the dream and bring it into focus, it will last a lot longer.

      I watched the movie Inception and it fascinated me. In my dream I was with a partner and we wanted to catch a guy. He was running and about to escape. In the middle of the street I decided to lay down and sleep so he doesn't escape because if I slept he would also fall asleep. So basically it was a dream within a dream and that's how I got lucid. In the second dream I knew that I was dreaming because I invoked it.

      I was already lucid in the second dream but I did a reality check just in case. Finger through the palm which didn't go through the palm. It just made a black hole on it.

      In my first lucid dream i woke up on my bed and then suddenly turned around. When I turned i saw that there were two alarm clocks instead of one. Also, the second one was blurry and had two lines on it and that's it. I realized that i was dreaming and then i said out loud "I'm dreaming!" nothing happened. After reading so many of other peoples experiences i was so set on the fact that the scene was supposed to change. It didn't. I got really angry and slammed my hand down on the bed and repeated "i am dreaming!" nothing happened. I said it even angrier now and slammed my fist down with more force. Then the scene started getting black and i lost lucidity.
      When i woke up i was so annoyed with myself.

      The next one i had was a lot better. The dream started out being a normal dream about maximum ride (this really awesome book series) then after a bunch of stuff went down, it moved to me and my family in a grey car. i was just siting in my seat and i decided to do a reality check. i counted my fingers and i had 6! i was shocked and i kept counting them over and over and i kept getting 6 or 7. My brother called me weird for counting and tried to stop me, but i already realized i was dreaming. To double check i did the finger through the palm and my finger went through. It felt cool but it was weird because on the top of my hand where my finger came out it was like gooeyish (that's where my username comes from ) I thought i would fly, but there was something i wanted to do more. I wanted to kiss this guy i like on tv. When i thought that, i was transported to the 2nd floor of a library and it turns out it was a kissing party. He wasn't there so i conjured him by just saying his name and the tv show he's from. He appeared and for some reason he was holding a picket sign with he name of the show he is from. I called him over and i wrapped my arms around his neck, but because of the age difference i was way too short. So then i said i wanted to be his age and i rose a few inches up and kissed him. It was awesome, but i got a weird negative feeling from him. After that i stopped controlling the dream and let it carry on, but because i did that i started to forget i was dreaming so i had to continuously stick my finger through my palm to keep myself lucid. I decided to do something because i was just standing on the first floor of the library with other people who were talking. But i couldnt do anything. At that point i lost lucidity.

      I cant wait to got to sleep tonight

      My first lucid was incredible, it took me multiple lucids to even get near the level of clarity I had in that dream.
