      Achievement Unlocked - Lucidity

      I finally did it. I guess because I was so dead beat tired last night and I was typing all my dream journals for the online one. I did take a Melatonin before sleeping and turned on my subliminal messaging. I know that sometime throughout the night I took off the headphones again (I don't know why but I do this on autopilot every night). Here's the dream.

      I woke up in my bed and instantly knew something was wrong. It was in a bed we didn't have, in a room I don't sleep in, and at my house. I knew I was at Johns so something didn't seem right. I did a nose plug RC and could breath. At first I was like, "Wait, am I dreaming". Then did it again and could tell I was breathing though... nothing that time. I even looked at my hands to make sure to notice that on my left hand, my third finger was missing. I honestly wasn't freaked out because that meant I was dreaming for sure. I started feeling absolutely everything to stabilize my dream. Then I proceeded to go outside to fly... ish. I could actually feel my own skepticism and was trying to tell myself, "You're dreaming, you just have to believe this will work". It didn't, haha. I then tried a different technique. I grabbed hold on a tree branch and started doing kind of a rubber band effect. Pull the tree down then use the weight to pull me up. I was getting higher and higher till John came out in the front yard and told me to rake leafs with my sister. I then noticed that there was dozens of bags of leafs everywhere. I wanted to try gliding since the tree thing wasn't working. I went out into the street but I was thinking, "Hey, when you don't take off this cement is going to hurt". I turned back to where all the leafs were and tried to transform them into pillows. It worked, slowly but it worked. John looked really surprised when I told him all the bags of leafs were now pillows. I was about to try to glide and was moving pillows when I realized that I might want to start with something a little easier. Driving! I have never cared for it but in a dream, why not give it a shot to try something new. I went inside while thinking of "I Give It All" by Rise Against. It was playing on the radio once I went back inside and I thought, "Yea, I knew that would happen". Erik was sitting at the table doing I don't know what. I think a Jigsaw. I was asking him where his keys were and he gave me a very vague response, "Oh there over there". I couldn't find them so I went to the backroom to ask my sister.

      The dream fades in an instant and I open my actual eyes to John saying, "It's time to get up and help move some of these boxes". I told him, "I really wish you wouldn't have done that because I just had my first dream where I knew it was a dream". I'm typing this up literally seconds after this all happened because my mind is on fire with excitement.


      I'm so overly happy right now. I don't care that the dream was short, I was just happy to experience it. Now I know I can do it and it's definitely worth it. Your little CT has grown up.

      Contratz man, I know how it seems daunting to do it for the first time. Nice job not waking up so fast, in my first one I woke up as soon as I thought I was dreaming. That feeling of amazement never really goes away for me, even now when I have a couple a week I get so caught up in wonder over them I have trouble remember what my goals were. Now that you've had one, the rest will be easier. Don't obsess over it and you may be surprised at your success. Good luck!

      Oh wow! It only felt like maybe a couple minutes worth of dream time. I guess I lasted longer than I thought I would (that's what she said). Sorry for the placement, Matte. I was just getting awake and didn't notice the other section.

      I'm still going to continue trying to Lucid Dream every night. I'm more confident than ever now!

      Ah when I saw this in the What's New I instantly thought "Yeah! He's done it!

      It's awesome isn't it? A click moment. But everything gets a little easier once you know what to expect and what it's like. Good job mate I hope you get loads more Keep it up, you'll be flying in no time.

      Aw sweet man, thats great. I knew you had done it as soon as I saw you had a new topic up. That sounded like a great dream, I mean pretty decent. You hear of people having lucids where they go to their school or walk around or something boring like that. At least yours had great control. You managed to transform the leaves into pillows in your first lucid, and you even had the idea or using a tree to try to fly. AND you realized that concrete would hurt if you failed to glide, even if it was only a dream.

      Still though, I have yet to become lucid, but I can really feel what it would be like, from having had a semi lucid, along with reading your account of your first.

      Great work, I'm sure many are soon to follow.
