      What The Hell?!

      Hi there! So last night was a weird night. Let me explain. I've awoken normally thinking about the dream I had had.

      [Dream #1] My friend lend me her guitar for me to repair it. When I opened it and fixed something I gave it back to her. She told me I did it wrong, because I forgot to do something, so I opened it again. When I tried to fix the cable which was disconnected I broke it. I was in panic because I didn't know what to do. After that I woke up.

      That's right, I woke up in WL and went to the bathroom. But in there I realized I had had another dream, a lucid one.

      It was so short, but really, really vivid and focused and I had a complete control over it. The problem is that I don't remember it well enough. I was in a coffee-shop and drinking something. In that moment I said: 'I am dreaming'. And the sensation was awesome. I went out of the coffee-shop and started to do some things. After that I was talking with a little boy in the street and I remember I thought that this little stupid dream character was about to punch me (?).

      After this I awoken in the [Dream #1]. Is this a false-awakening? I thought FA only happened in your room.

      And why do I know that I'm dreaming instantly, without doing any reality check? Does this happen usually?

      Thanks for reading!

      A false awakening is when you think you just woke up from a dream but you are still dreaming, when you dream that you wake up, so no it seems like it wasn't. Also, they can happen wherever. At times you just realize you are dreaming even without a reality check, it's normal. How did you "jump" from one dream to another? Probably you lost lucidity in the lucid dream, or they were just two separated dreams. Probably the first one because it seems like you were becoming less lucid when that strange thought of yours. Another possibility is that you dreamed you had a lucid dream...

      I don't remember how did I jump from one to another, I just remember being talking with that guy and the next thing is that I was repairing the guitar.

      Btw, could you explain me the last thing you said? I think that's what happened to me, but how can I differentiate them?

      Well when you dream that you lucid dream you think things like "this little bastard is about to punch me" for no reason at all. Now seriously, I find it quite difficult to explain though it's not very difficult for me to differentiate one from another. I just "Intuyo que es así, a veces incluso es una certeza" (Not sure how to write that in English). Anyway this just happened to me like twice or so.

      If you just dreamed that you had a lucid dream you would not have that aha moment of realization that it is a dream, and you would not really have had the awareness while it was going on, I think.

      Hum, now I'm not really sure which one was. I'll think it was a lucid dream, I have that feeling. Anyway, thank you both for the answers

      This happened to me again last night. I was sat on the edge of my bed and in that moment I realized that I was dreaming. I focused on my hands to stabilize the dream. After that I started doing things. I desired to be faster, but it didn't work like my first lucid dream. After a while the dream change and I lose lucidity.

      The weird thing happened in this next dream. I was talking with someone and I performed a reality-check (btw, this is the first time I perform a reality-check within a dream). I did the finger-count rc and I had 11 fingers, but this did not have any effect on my awareness (?)

      Maybe your reality check isn't well prepared? I mean, maybe when you RC while awake you just do it and forguet about it's objective, you don't ask yourself if you're dreaming. Concerning the lucidity loss, remember to remember yourself you are dreaming every now and then.

      Ever since discovering lucid dreaming, I gain lucidity at random times within dreams as well. Due to how busy I am in life, I no longer practice or try to LD, yet I'll still get them here and there where I will notice I am dreaming simply because I have noticed before.

      Is it possible to dream of a lucid dream even with reality-checks? This is quite annoying

      Congrats on lucids!
      If you were truly aware and you feel that you were lucid, it's lucid dream. As for 'dream of a lucid dream' i consider calling it like that confusing and much prefer calling it 'non-lucid about lucid dreaming actions' and those feel completely like non-lucid dreams, but your 'character' in them becomes aware and starts doing dream control and stuff, but you don't become aware.
      As for reality checks, when you do them in waking life look around and actually question reality, not just do them automatically, remember it's awareness and questioning mindset that gets us lucid, not the action itself.
