      Maaaybe?

      Has anyone ever dreamed that they were having a lucid dream (if that makes any sense)? I feel like I may have had one last night, but when I compare it to my lucid experiences as a child, the awareness I had was very dulled and my recall was hazy at best when I woke up...it was almost as though I was just 'dreaming' that I was having a lucid experience without actually being lucid in the dream (though it may have just been a case of poor awareness/recall because I was EXHAUSTED after hardly sleeping in three days and didn't even do any lucid exercises before bed anyway). To be fair, I did perform a reality check (can I fly?) and then 'remembered' a few tips I'd read on this site about shouting 'increase vividness' at your dream (which worked notably well)...I made a few things happen that I wanted to happen and enjoyed a good deal of control. But it was almost as though I was watching (or dreaming of) myself doing these things, and it was my 'dream me' who was lucid and not the actual me. VERY confusing!

      I nicknamed these dreams "false-lucids" and have had my fair share of them. When they happen to me, they feel like I am watching a movie of my dream avatar becoming lucid but I become so engrossed in my own character's story that I don't actually realize that I am actually dreaming.
      With that said, I don't think you had a one of these "false-lucids", I think you had a real lucid dream. A low level lucid dream perhaps, but a lucid dream nonetheless. I could be wrong though as I am only basing this off of your sort description of the dream. Only you can truly determine whether or not you were lucid, we can only look at the evidence and make suggestions/guesses.

      My Lucid Dreaming Motto - "I have walked upon the the surface of a burning star. Observed events so infinitesimal and instantaneous that they can barely be described as having occurred at all. You... you're just a dream character. And this world's most powerful dream character poses no more threat to me than it's smartest cupcake." - Dr. Manhattan (kinda)

      I had one such dream where I dreampt I was lucid. But it wasn't really me as in the dream I was someone else. That person who I was in my dream was dreaming, and in THEIR dream they were lucid. It's a wierd feeling, let me tell you.

      Like Tranquility said, I do believe you really were lucid though, from the way your dream sounds. My false-lucid as tranquility calls them was easily separable from a real lucid dream upon waking--it just felt different from the two lucid dreams that I have had.

      Oh yes I have encountered those kind of dreams as well. I was in a shop for some reason and I just went to sleep right there in this shop with the intention to have a lucid dream. That actually happened and I flew around and stuff. After a while I woke up and was back at the shop and I told everyone I just had a lucid dream... Really crazy.
      Anyway, well done It's really cool that you remember to do those things to stabilisie your dream. Keep going!

      I prefer calling them "Non-lucids about lucid dreaming actions", but yes, it's possible. It also could have been low awareness lucid though, it's possible to not have full waking memory in lucid dream or even to have completely different personality. If you feel like you were aware, even little bit, then count is as lucid, but if you feel like you weren"t aware at all but your character was aware then count as non-lucid, it's really up for you to decide. And either way, it's sign of progress, so think positive and keep practicing!
