      first lucid dreams

      after a month and a half of trying i finally had my first lucid dream. i went to bed at my normal time and woke up around five o'clock. after staying awake for a couple hours i went to bed with the sole intention of having a lucid dream on my mind.

      after being asleep for a half hour i had my first one. i was walking in a parking lot and looked up at the sky. i noticed it was pretty overcast and the thought that i was going to pick up chinese food was on my mind. after that thought i somehow knew i was dreaming. the experience was absolutely incredible! everything was so realisitic and the thought of the infinite possibilities was on my mind. the freedom was exhilerating. i remember running and jumping up in the air and started flying. i flew up past the trees and all of a sudden started getting pretty scared of falling and getting hurt. i told myself i was dreaming and could'nt get hurt but i felt it starting to fade and myself being ripped from the dream. i tried spinning really fast but it was too late and i woke up. i was incredibly happy and felt great. although it was very short it was an experience i'll never forget.

      my second lucid wasn't as good as the first one, but it was still cool to me. i can't remember actually dreaming, i just heard a character from a show i watch telling a story. then he said "and when i realized i was dreaming everything got so much crazier." after hearing him say "dream" i immediately realized i was dreaming and opened my eyes. i was lying on my back outside in my yard staring up at the sky. i got that feeling i got from my first lucid about how vivid everything was and then woke up before i could rub my hands together or anything.

      can't wait to have more lucid dreams and start controlling them! such an awesome thing that i'm so glad i heard about!

      The feeling when you wake up after you have your first lucid dream is exhilerating, like you've just been put on a drug and want more more more. Well done man

      It truly is a great feeling. To take control of the ever so fragile world inside your own mind.

      I remember my first lucid, though it was far from an enjoyable experience. :/

      thanks for all the support everyone! so nice to finally find this forum as everyone else i tried talking to about it said i was on crack.. lol. think the only bad thing about how great it felt was that i was way too excited to fall back asleep to try for another one. and i've heard about this from the book exploring the world of lucid dreams by stephen laberge that if you're too focused on them and concentrate too hard they might be harder to have. what was awesome was that the first one happened a couple days after i started reducing my reality checks. so far it seems i can really only have them on weekends since i can do the sleep rescheduling trick but thats just fine for me for now. now i just have to really work on controlling them and staying lucid.

      and JussiKala do you mind my asking why your first lucid was bad?

      Because I did not realize the full reality of what it means that it is a dream. (Like, I was like "okay this is a dream. Got that. Mooving on") Because it wasn't a good dream, it was just me standing in a gray mess that had no particular shape. Because it only lasted 10 seconds. Because the whole experience was just so confusing.

      I've had a few enjoyable lucids since.

      oh damn that sounds pretty crazy though. and i know it differs from person to person but how many lucid dreams has it taken for your guys to start being able to control them and not wake up right away? in the book i read laberge said something like in the first year he lost lucidity in 11 of 87 dreams, second year 1 of 100+, and third year 1 of 200+. hopefully it only takes about five more or so. really exciting stuff though
