      First LD?

      Hello everyone,
      Here's the story:
      I went to bed around 2am yesterday. I didn't really practice anything at all, infact, I haven't practiced trying to LD for the last 4 days and before that, I only practiced 2 days, since, those 2 days of practiced involved 1-1.5h of getting into SP only to have it fade away and I think I was close to an OBE which I didn't wanna do. Anyways, I only repeated the phrase "I"ll remember my dream" < 10, then drifted off to sleep. I had a dream where I was taking a shower, lol, with sunlight coming through the window on the opposite side. It was pretty beautiful. He's the interesting part. With no reason at all, I told myself I must be dreaming, just like that, I said to myself, I'm dreaming, so, then I told myself to do a reality check where I looked at my hand and they had 5 fingers but appeared to be transparent and somewhat static, lol. In that case, I decided to try and fly before its over, however, the dream seemed to be ending, because, there seemed to be a black patch(?) appearing where the window was. Knowing it might be the case, I closed my eyes, rubbed my hands and concentrated on that in which case that was solved. I proceeded to leave the house and then it just ended before I had a chance to try rubbing my hands or spinning around. So, what do you guys think? Was it a LD and did you guys have a similar experience with your first LD with how quick it was? Funny enough, as I mentioned before, I wasn't exactly thinking I'll LD yesterday, I wasn't even sure if I'll remember any dreams before my past experiences with using autosuggestion or even WILDing taught me that I needed to repeat that phrase hundreds of time before I even remember anything. BTW, the last two days, while I don't remember the dreams, I did remember some small bits of them and I didn't do anything those 2 nights Maybe my body is somehow adjusting on its own?

      Congratulations on your first lucid. Maybe taking a short break allowed all your practice to settle in. Maybe your autosuggestion is a little delayed.

      It is pretty common for the dream to fade quickly the first time. Maybe it is the unfamiliar feeling, or the excitement. Once you become more comfortable with the feeling, they should last longer. It sounds like you did everything right trying to stabalize the dream. Try not to worry too much about the dream ending prematurely. Sometimes, just expecting the dream to end will make it happen.

      Thanks Possibly that was the case, but, my only practice was 2-3h of autosuggestion for 2 days and I'm presuming people practice along the lines of months in some cases to even have one. I see what you mean about the dream because I've heard of that as well, but, wanted confirmation. I wasn't really excited as I recall, but, at least I was able to remember to rubber my hands, lol. I see what you mean about the expection part, I'll try not to do that next time and be optimistic that it'll last forever
