      Finally had my first lucid.

      I could tell [the last dream I had] ended and I layed in bed to try to go back to sleep, I think I accidentally DEILDed or something, because the next thing I knew, I was laying down in some dimly lit room, with Nina from my school staring over me asking me something. I knew something was up, but didn't bother RCing or any of that. I was in shock (maybe SP?) because I knew something was wrong. I whispered rather loudly, "Purple skies". Nina and some other DCs who I couldn't see all made the sound the aliens make in Toy Story "Ooooooohhhh". I felt this euphoria that I could only describe as "going lucid". I closed my eyes and tried to imagine myself being somewhere else, but when I opened them, I was back in my bed.

      I knew I wasn't dreaming anymore, but decided to RC anyway., not believing what I just experienced. It all happened so fast, but I didn't get to take full advantage of it. It had to have taken me another hour to fall asleep. I was so excited from my short lucidity (like 5 seconds maybe), that I just couldn't sleep.

      Interestingly enough, the next dream I had, I became lucid. I guess I was extremely skeptical of everything due to my earlier lucid experience. I remember being in a men's locker room, (a girl was in the men's room, but I didn't pick up on it) and I just blurted out "purple clouds" pretty loud. None of the DCs even looked at me or reacted at all. Imagine going up in a room of like 10 people and saying something like "purple clouds" really loud. Yeah, I went lucid off of that, oddly enough. I didn't even think to RC and oddly enough, I didn't have to stabilize. I asked the closest DC if I was dreaming and I don't remember what they said, but I had a short conversation with them. They seemed so absent-minded. Like every response was systematic. Anyway, I wasn't even thinking about flying or shooting fireballs or doing anything supernatural. I closed my eyes and decided I wanted to appear on the moon, which didn't work, and then I decided I wanted to appear on Mars. To my surprise, I didn't appear on Mars, but in a red lighted room with a drill sergeant yelling at me through an intercom system. He told me something that had to do with getting rid of my children if I wanted to fight in this war. Excited for action and ready for battle, I wasn't really sure what he meant by getting rid of my kids. He walked out of the closet beside me and I decided to ask him some things like I did with the other DC. He didn't respond the way the other DC did, though. His responses were shouted questions back at me, namely asking me about a paper on a desk. He asked what one of the drawings meant, and I explained I wasn't sure; it was just a doodle (it was a drawing of a steak I think). At this point, I think I lost lucidity and began to accept this dream as reality again. I don't remember making anymore conscious decisions in the dream. I remembered a fragment of the end of the dream where I was in my class and some kids were exclaiming to my computer teacher that it was possible to control your dreams. Everyone seemed rather intrigued. I was the only person who wasn't so excited and the teacher looked right at me. He looked back away and I guess the dream ended.

      Idk the lucid wasn't very vivid and nowhere near as weird as I thought it'd be. Everything looked normal and I didn't have to stabilize anything the second time. I can hardly remember the details now, though.

      Your main problem I think is that you didn't actually stabilize. Like when you were on the table, you said purple clouds, which is actually and intriguing method, but then you didn't do anything. You let the dream take it's course, and eventually you were taken along with it.

      As for your second dream, again, you didn't stabilize the dream enough to manage getting to the moon. Maybe next time you are aware yet not in control of event, stabilize however you want, and there is then no reason why you shouldn't be able to control everything.

      Those are great dreams. I like your interaction with the dream characters. I like to let the dream run itself a little, like you did. I find it more interesting when some bizarre dream content (like a drawing of a steak) stays in the dream. I think it creates a more insightful and meaningful dream than a generic sandbox lucid that is totally under your control.

      I'm still wondering about your purple clouds thing. Did you ingrain it into your head somehow to say that, until eventually you said it in your dreams, and didn't get a funny reaction? It's kind of like a reverse reality check. R.C.s invoke a strange reaction, so you realize you are dreaming. The purple clouds doesn't get any reaction at all, unlike real life, so you become aware that way.

      It's funny how that is.

      yeah it was weird. I didn't even think to RC... I just knew I was lucid. Its weird though. This dream seems so vague now that I try to remember it after a day of activity. Aren't lucid dreams usually supposed to be really vivid?

      Yes, thats what makes them "lucid dreams" as opposed to regular dreams. However, vividness in dreams does not contribute to dream recall and memory. Sure, something really painful or hot or sharp or whatever will stick in your mind for longer than something that was tepid or duller. Lucid dreams are not only more vivid, but you have control as well.

      However they are not real. You do not actually experience real flight, or real speed, etc, so your body (and therefore) mind does not remember them as well as real... um.. flight.
      Physical feeling and dream feelings are different. You can remember the former by your memory. The latter is recalled in dream recall, but only to the extent of the situation or how it felt emotionally. Since it isnt actual feeling, you dont remember it the same way.

      Make sense?
