      LD the elevator

      I did it! My fist LD since joining the forum 5 days ago. I'm self employed and for the last 5 weeks I've been on a job that requires me starting on the job site at 6 am. So I've been getting up at 4 am and since I don't usually go to bed until 10:30, well that's not the best conditions for lucid dreaming. But last night I was unusually tied and I went to be at 8:30.

      I woke up at 2:30 am, got a drink of water, realized I was quite rested and thought I might just be able to lucid dream. I tried WILDs without success, drifted in and out of dreams, had a short semi lucid dream that I'm not going to bother to recount. I new it must be getting close to time to get up and then I had this dream

      I was at a construction site (not the site I'm working on). My brother was there and another guy. We got into a huge freight elevator and were trying to return the the floor for our job but this elevator had all these temporary buttons, the labels of which didn't make any sense. We had tried a few floors that were wrong but finally the door opens and I see it's our floor but my brother is messing around with something in the elevator and the door closes. I"m trying to find the door open button and frustrated because these stupid buttons don't make any sense. I go over to my brother and say quickly which button opens the door before it gets called to another floor! And then it hits me, THIS MUST BE A DREAM!

      My fist thought is I need to test to confirm that I'm dreaming. I think of flipping a coin. (I've actually never heard of that being a dream test), I check my pockets but I don't have any coins. Then I think I'll run head long into and through the door that will prove it!. But then I think maybe not the best idea if I was wrong. I walk up to the door and now there is a glass wall to the right of the doors. I"m excited because now I can try doing one of my favorite things to do in LDs, That is to push my hands through glass. I walk up the glass and push my hand against it. And yep sure enough it pushes through!

      Now the coolest thing about pushing through glass as opposed to other solid objects in LDs is that glass acts kind of like thick taffy. (Other dreamers have had this same experience) It bends and stretches a bit, when you pull out or push through all the way it sort of sticks to you and stretches out. And this was really thick glass which made it extra cool.

      I was pushing both hands in and pulling and moving my hands around, really getting into it. I realized my dream attention was very strong. I remembered that I had been planing on practicing stabilizing the dream ( a waking intention I've been repeating) and that touching objects was one way of doing it. I focused even more on the glass and the tactical feel. I felt the dream and lucidity was very stable..... AND THEN MY ALARM WENT OFF!!!

      Damm... Oh well, I am very happy to have had the dream. Now I got to get to work.... Try again tonight!

      Dang to that alarm clock!! But congrats on your lucid

      Lots more to come.

      Elevators are awesome to turn you lucid, they work really bad on dreams. Try to do a RL check every time you are in an elevator, especially if live in a building with on or your job involves going up and down in one.

      Sorry, it double posted the same post twice for some reason!

      Congrats again!

      Thanks PercyLucid, Don't remember elevators being present in my dreams before, but today I was in a freight elevator for the job I'm on and I certainly did the RL! I've been lucid dreaming since I was a kid but for the past 20 years not too frequently. Now I'm on a renewed quest to up-level my dreaming and I'm finding the resources and contacts on the forum very helpful for that. I was excited to have this all-to-short LD because it's my fist since my renewed effort and joining the forum. Also I was happy that as soon as I became lucid I had the thought to perform the task I had set for myself which was practice techniques to stabilize the dream. The pushing through the glass was just something I love to do.

      More to share soon I hope.

      Well, keep at it.

      The feeling while lucid is amazing... is sure a natural high indeed.

      From here they will get more frequent and longer Especially if you are a natural! I know from experience.

      That is awesome. I am glad you remembered a goal from waking life. The experience with the glass is very cool.
      Peace Be With You. Oh, and sure, The Force too, why not.
