      My Longest Lucid Yet!

      So I've had four lucid dreams so far. My first two were barely worth mentioning as they both lasted only a few seconds. I had another one later that lasted about a minute or so.

      Last night I attempted a WILD, but my mind fell asleep during the attempt and it didn't really work out. I started having some normal dream, and it was a kind of depressing one. The plot of the dream eventually led me to be laying in the dirt on the side of the road in my town (Tucson) next to a fence made out of brick, with a pile of empty liquor bottles surrounding me.

      For some reason I suddenly remembered that I had been trying to achieve a lucid dream. At this point the dream became remarkably vivid. So much so, that I couldn't really tell if I was dreaming at all, and I started getting nervous because I heard the voices of some men on the other side of the wall. I was in a really run-down part of town and I thought they might be gangsters. I performed a reality check by trying to push my left index finger through my right hand. It didn't work, which really started to creep me out. Then I plugged my nose and found that I could breath, but I still wasn't convinced it was a dream.

      I looked around for a digital clock and noticed one sticking out of a cactus, which I thought was pretty weird. I edged over slowly to avoid the attention of the men on the other side of the fence (it seems kinda silly now) and the numbers were changing randomly. Now I was pretty excited. I rubbed my hands together for a moment and then stood up. The dream was so detailed that I even had to brush the dust off my pants when I stood up.

      Then I crossed the street and started walking down a run-down alleyway. On the left was a chain link fence with rusty old metal signs all over it, and a schoolyard on the other side. On the right were a bunch of impoverished houses, packed tightly together. I looked into the sky and saw a cool spaceship thing flying through the air, towards the earth.

      At this point I was kind of disappointed that my lucid dream was taking place in such a crappy setting. I thought of something fun to do, but nothing came to mind (I thought of plenty of things after waking up ). Then I thought, well lots of people like to fight in their lucid dreams, so I decided it would be fun to be chased by and fight off ninjas. As soon as I thought of it the ninjas started jumping out from behind buildings. I hopped the fence to the left and ran into the field but more ninjas came from that way and I was already surrounded. They made a circle around me and pointed their swords at me, then stood there waiting for me to do something.

      I didn't know what to do, and realized that I don't really know anything about fighting. Then I thought about trying to change the size of my muscles, but as soon as I started doing that the dream faded away. I felt as though I was laying in my bed, and experienced sleep-paralysis type sensations of my body floating through the air.

      I didn't want to wake up, so I tried to imagine some sort of dream scene. I pictured a man's face and focused on it, and eventually I woke up in a bed with a doctor sitting next to me. He was congratulating me on having a successful WILD, and then he left the room. I got up and looked at my teeth in the mirror and noticed that one of them was very loose. I could move it around and the feeling was starting to scare me. I didn't want to have to go see the dentist. Then I noticed that all my teeth had little holes in them and was kinda freaking out. I stopped caring about whether or not I was dreaming and thought only that I wanted to wake up. When I woke up for real I was relieved that my teeth were back to normal, but annoyed with myself for throwing the dream away, even though I wasn't lucid for the last part of it.

      Overall the experience was more strange than it was fun. It made me realize that even when you're lucid in a dream, your conscious mind isn't working at anywhere near full capacity like it is when you're awake. Now I have a plan for my next lucid dream, so hopefully when it occurs I'll be able to come up with something more interesting to do. It also made me realize that I need to do a RC every time I wake up because I had a false awakening.

      By the way, does anyone have any tips for transforming your body within a dream? Whenever I started trying to influence the size and shape of different parts of my body it just caused the dream to change and I eventually lost lucidity. Also, what method do you use to travel to a new area within a lucid dream? That dream I ended up with an extremely boring and even somewhat depressing setting.

      Congratulations on your first great lucid! It sounds pretty fun. No offence, I'm suprised you didn't realise you were dreaming with a docter at your bedside, mentioning lucid dreaming, and your teeth falling out. But I can't talk, I was researching lucid dreaming on a computer one day, and I didn't realise I was dreaming
