      My experience with trying to attain lucidity and succeeding! I DID IT THIS MORNING!

      About a year ago, (I was 19) friends and I started discussing lucid dreaming and how we could achieve it. After that, for the last year, I've been keeping a dream journal! Writing down as many dreams as I can remember in as much detail as I can.

      As time went on, I noticed that my dreams seemed to become more frequent. My recall abilities also seemed to improve. Maybe 6 months in, I noticed that there seemed to be more thinking in my dreams, I wasn't lucid, not nearly. It felt as though I was more involved with the decision making within the dream.

      A few days ago things got really intense, I think it was the morning. I'd woken up and started to drift back asleep. It felt like I was floating, like I was in zero gravity in my bed. On top of this I couldn't breathe and my mouth wouldn't open, I felt like my throat was sealed! I was getting really panicked as I felt completely paralysed in some kind of half waking sleep! After a moment I managed to breathe through my nose, and gradually my eyes flickered open and the world kind of reformed around me, I hadn't realised I was in such a deep sleep, especially after having woken a little while earlier. I felt a bit shaken up as it was quite an intense episode.

      THIS MORNING! I woke up at maybe 8:00am and went back to sleep. This seems to be a time when I quite heavily. The dream was going along as standard, odd dream. I saw a beach rock pool in a drain, and all of a sudden I realised I was dreaming, I was fumbling with my back pack as I got quite a surprise and almost woke up, but fortunately I managed to stay asleep, I decided not to look at the rock pool and ran to a clearing in the area to see what I could do. I decided to try flying (probably bit off a bit more than I could chew), I concentrated so hard, crouched down and leapt, I managed to get a few metres into the air and I believe I could've kept flying, but my stomach started to churn at the height, next time I'll try a go less hard and maybe glide along the ground as opposed to trying to superman into space! After this, I tried to shoot fire out of my hand, I concentrated really hard again and thrust my hand out. Nothing happened, until I noticed a little orange flicker, I looked at my palm and I'd managed to form a little orange flame that hovered above my palm.

      They were the only lucid parts, but I felt completely aware that I was dreaming, I got so excited! I knew I was lucid. I cannot wait until tonight where I'll hopefully be able to achieve lucidity again!

      One thing I've noticed is that I feeling bloody amazing today, like I've achieved something great!

      Thanks! I'm going to bed now! I've been brimming with the excitement of knowing that Onactually have the capacity to LD! After almost a year of journaling I was beginning to think that maybe I just couldn't do it! Well now I know that's not true

      Good for you man, keep it going! This gives me much inspiration, I know my first LD is just around the corner. They say the second one is the hardest though, but now that you've unlocked the secrets I'm sure you'll keep it going
      Those who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand.

      Unfortunately, last night didn't yield any lucidity

      I woke up at about 7 and found it quite difficult to get back to sleep, but I probably managed to fall asleep at 9 and then had some really funky dreams, but not strongly lucid from what I can remember.

      I hope so! I haven't had one since though! I've noticed that I really only remember/think I can become lucid in dreams when I've woken up in the morning and fallen back to sleep, but recently I've been sleeping really well and haven't been able to get back to sleep in the morning. Still I'm continuing to journal! I'm going to stick with this until it becomes an unhealthy obsession!!!!!

      WBTBs and MicroWBTBs are actually very helpful for lucidity, it can be worth to experiment with them.
