      Red face I think I had my first lucid dream last night?

      I have had a really busy and stressful time, especially this week. As a result of the craziness of the last month or so, I essentially stopped trying to lucid dream and decided I'd resume when I was not as busy and stressed, but I did think about it often and perform a few reality checks. I had no time to, and I'd also given up on the technique I'd been trying, because every guided meditation I used either was nice but wouldn't put me to sleep, or put me to sleep and did nothing but cause more vivid dreams. Nothing close to lucidity. I'd begun to think I'd never achieve lucidity and maybe there was something wrong with me or I wasn't doing the meditations right. Anyways, I had a dream last night that I believe might have been a lucid dream.

      I was at a school, walking around during after school hours when most of the teachers had already left. I wandered into a classroom where my brother's kindergarten teacher was grading papers at one of the students' desks. I walked over to her desk and looked at a paper, which had a list of names on it in a few colors. I have forgotten what they were, but I could read them clearly, and said to myself, "if I was dreaming, could I read this? I thought you couldn't read in dreams."
      I decided I'd look away and see if the words changed, because I knew that they do that in dreams. I looked over at the teacher, who was still grading papers, and then looked back at the paper on the desk, and surprisingly, the words had changed.
      At this point I said to myself calmly, "I'm dreaming."
      Suddenly everything became very real and clear, and it felt like I truly was standing in that classroom. It was mind blowing. I was struggling not to get excited, so I rubbed my hands together, which I've heard helps, and stabilized the dream somewhat.
      Then, I attempted to fly, which was probably not a good thing to attempt during my very first lucid dream. I had not expected to lucid dream last night nor had I figured out what I'd do if I achived lucidity, so I did the first thing that popped into my mind. I imagined myself as being lighter than air, and then stood on my tiptoes, lifting one leg up and pushing off the ground gently with the other. I floated up into the air slowly, and at this point I became so excited I either woke up or the dream ended, I can't remember which.

      Was this a lucid dream? I'm just not sure. It seems like one to me.

      YES! It was a lucid dream, congrats

      Make a plan of what to do in your next lucid. Even practice it during day. It really helps, some kind of a "muscle memory" thing. So when you get lucid, you just "do it" instead of having to think "what the heck should I do?"

      Congratulations, DreamingInBlue, it's a lucid indeed!

      Expectations and practice are key for dream control so don't doubt yourself next time and just try until you get it right. That's a really great first lucid though, many people immediately wake up in their first one... So good job with the stabilizing!
