      I had my first Semi Lucid dream...

      Over the weekend I had my first taste. It felt amazing but it didn't last to long. Was not very vivid ether. The sceen was blotty and static like with lots of Red and Blue so I could not get a good visual of my dream scape, which is not like my dreams. In the dream I asked myself if I was dreaming like I always do in my waking life (latly) and I managed to start doing a RC in my dream. All day long (in waking life) I attempt to make a pen float in the air and that carried over into my dream. At first I could not locate a pen in my dream but then I looked down and there was a small coffee bar with a pen sitting on it. The first attemt to make the pen float I threw it and it just dissapered. Thats when I became simi lucid and knew I was dreaming. What followed was strange. I threw another pen and it became a pebble and fell back down.
      I then threw the pebble and it became a CD (comp Disk) and fell down. I found another pen and threw this one and it became a living bird and I caught it. Thats all I remember and it took about thirty min. the next mourning to recall it but the feeling I felt was great.
      Let me know what you think.
      thanx- Lucas the goat...

      Why it was "semi-lucid"?

      It only lasted maybe 45 seconds.
      and I couldn't seem to pull away from from what I was doing.
      I tried to make the pen float and instead it transformed.
      I did not will this to happen, it just did.
      I could not make it float.

      Also a side note I forgot to metion before:
      I could really feel the sleep paralasis while I was dreaming.
      I was having some troble moving in my dream.
      It was almost like a tingley sensation.

      did you know you where dreaming or did it FEEL like you were dreaming?. In semi lucid dreams, the dreamer will still go through the motions like he would in a normal lucid dream but the feeling of being in a dream will strangly hang over you as you do. it's usually a short experience where you either become completely lucid or you wake up. everything you do will not feel like reality to you but you will treat it as if it were reality, meaning all the odd things you do or see will not really come as a surprise to you. You usually won't get as excited as you would if you were fully lucid but you will feel like you know you are dreaming or that something is different about the reality you are experiencing. As the dream goes on you might start questioning whether you are in a dream and slowly start getting memories and feelings you would normaly think of when awake. this a lot of times leaves people confused because they are not sure if they were lucid or just fake lucid dreaming. the sensation of being semi lucid in an influentual dreamy state is a very strange one so theres a lot of speculation that goes on whether semi lucid dreaming actually exists or not.

      This is interesting, because I'm not 100% sure that my "lucid dreams" have actually been lucid dreams. I think the dream feels real when I'm in it, but most of the time, when I wake up, I remember it being fuzzy and not even close to how vivid reality is. I've had a few where it felt 100% real though.
      You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one...

      Often when newbies have had a lucid dream they start to doubt wether they really had control of the dream, but I can assure you that they did. When you first become lucid you get over excited and want to try everything making it seems as though you have no control.

      also need in keep in mind that a newbie could missinterprit his semi lucid state for a full on lucid dream. for newbie,s layer 2 minors can be very missleading and leave newbies in a state of confusion.

      The other night I had a false-lucid. I dreamed that I became lucid, and did stupid things that ended up getting my dream self in trouble and I ended up apologizing to my dream characters by saying "Sorry guys, I really did think I was dreaming" lol But hey, it's a start!

      I meant to say normal dream, not normal lucid dream, just getting that out the way anyways yeah, theres a spectrum to how aware one gets in a dream. your awarness in a dream depends on how open the part that processes logic in your brain is. A lot of people on here think that you are either lucid or not when thats not necessarily the case. awarness doesn't just happen in a dream when you do something odd or a reality check. something in your brain activity opens up and you gain a sense of awarness but this doesn't always come full fold. When in a dream, you are in a trance like state where you believe whatever reality is forced upon you, the logic part of your brain is a sleep and while it's in this state, you have no way of gaining awareness. When you practice the methods of gaining awareness, you are training yourself to activate the logic part of the brain. awarness greatly depends on how much of the logic side is awake, this is why there is a spectrums of how aware one can get in a dream, (it's also why DEILDing works so well for people). when you are semi dreaming, the logic side of your brain is partly on and slowly awakening, usually this leads to the point of breaking through. while in a semi lucid state, you gain a sense of awarness that you are dreaming, you could even no full well that you are experiencing a dream but you don't fully understand the contents of what your dream really is so you would still react to it as if you were in a normal dream. It's the reason why most don't get overly excited or even care, it's merely a feeling that hangs over them while going through the motions in a dream. you also don't attain the HD effect normal LUCID dreams have which sucks. I remember my first semi lucid dream, I was just comming out of a very long dream then I think I woke up, I don't remember exactly but when the next dream started, I't started with me getting this feeling that I was in a dream, it was a similar feeling you get when you re-enter a dream only I wasn't aware that I woke up so it was like another dream started but I had this strange feeling of awareness. I don't even remember when the dream started, I just remember flying 7 feet above ground and then punching some deformed looking cartoony guy but throughout I could feel something different but at the same time the things I saw and was doing still felt normal. I then went higher in the sky and said to myself that I was lucid dreaming but I said it so casual, I didin't sound surprised at all, I didn't even feel all that surprised even though when I said I started spinning in the air. I don't think I ever became fully lucid, the reality felt way too normal to me to be completely lucid, I didn't even remember to do a reality check which is something I would have remembered had I had the same level of awarness I do awake. i't wasn't a fake lucid because I could definitly tell I was in a dream, I can be sure of that. But anyways semi lucid dreams happen in the second layer of lucidity. the second layer of lucidity is when lucidity starts to become present, it's like a half state of awareness and a half state of unconsciousness. there are 5 levels of lucidity ranging from 0 to 4. there are different variants within a layer like layer 2 minor or layer 2 major, theres a minor and major for every layer. full consciousness occures at layer 3 which is when dreams become high definition, when virgins know what sex feels like before ever really having it.
