      Feeling your physical body during your dream.

      Last night I realized I was dreaming and had a very high lucid dream to the point where it could pass for reality. I had used the technique of remembering my phone number and address to increase the lucidity level.

      Anyway I wanted something to so I stood and put my hands together like I had an invisible ball between them and my eyes closed for the most part. I wanted to manipulate the wind into my hand, but I got a different resut. Instead I started FEELING this paralyzing feeling in my arms and then realized that I was actually feeling what my arms in the reality were feeling like, due to sleep paralysis. I immediately stopped though because I was afraid that if I continued doing this then I was going to wake up, but that fear had already crawled into my mind so I started hearing faint sounds of my alarm clock. Now here's the part I can't remember. I either woke up in real life and turned off my alarm clark or I had a false awakening(my first one and a very strange one that included the bears in little red riding hood). I know they both happened, but I don't know which one was first.

      I just wanted to tell you about my experience and if what I felt was really my physical body. Did anybody encounter something like this? Any input is appreciated.

      Normally when you feel your real body you wake up soon after. Since you had a false awakening chances are you didn't feel your real body, but your body that you had in the false awakening. It would basicly feel the same because your sleeping in the false awakening but it doesn't always have to.

      I don't know if that is clear but its basicly, you feel where you are going. If your going into another dream you will feel stuff from that dream, if your waking up for real then you would feel that. Its even possible(if you did not set your alarm) that hearing that might not have been your real alarm but one from the false awakening, which you turned off in the false awakening and then went on to do the other stuff.

      But that's the thing. I can't remember which one happened after I started feeling it. I know for a fact that both did happen, but I dont know which was first. My alarm clock was working to. I have two alarm clocks to wake me up every morning so I can attempt WILD/MILD. When I woke up I turned off my alarm clocks and went back to sleep. There's also the possibility that I might've had my LD after I woke up(I just can't remember, but instinct tell me it was before but i guess thats not enough)

      I forgot to mention this to. While I was "feeling" it, I suddenly remembered that a while back, someone posted here that they could control their physical body through their dreams. Don't know if that would help though.

      I normally get kind of lazy with my dream journal but I almost always write down the lucid dreams I have. If you wrote it down, you would of remebered.

      It seems either way you fell back to sleep. In that case I bet you did feel your body and woke up, turned off the alarm went to sleep and into the same dream, where you had a false awakening.

      Other wise you had a false awakening, woke up turned off the alarm and went back to sleep. If that happened most likely you would forget you had a dream by the time you woke up the second time.

      I remember a couple of times I was aware of me laying in my bed, and I kinda felt both "reality" and a dream....

      But I found that annoying and it's very hard to concentrate on a dream...

      When I was a child, I often experienced LD like state, where I was aware of my body, I could move, but still saw a dream... Too bad back then I belived that dreams are unchangeable :"(

      Wow, that's really wild!

      I feel sleep paralysis during false awakenings all the time. Usually it's my eyes. I won't be able to see, so I have to try with all my might to open them. And then when I do, I wake up for real.

      Anyway, to answer your question, I think it's yes. You probably ARE becoming somewhat aware of your sleeping body. And since you're still sleeping, it makes sense to me that your arms (or any body part) would feel paralysed.

      Did that make any sense?
