      What's it like to lose lucidity?

      Just wondering, it seems like an interesting transition, but I've never personally done it because I always wake up at the end of my lucid dreams. So what does it feel like to move from lucidity back to your normal dream state?

      to me, its like i fall back to sleep, like a loss of conciousness
      because, once you get distacted its like zoning out in real life, if you know what i mean...

      You remember it but you can't remember the transition. You just like..lose lucidity. I have no idea how to explain it. There's really no feeling...

      My logic goes haywire. I'll start applying my insight to completely unrelated things, and make connections and assumptions that I know are false in real life. Everything feels faster, and I also feel like I'm trying harder than I was while lucid (trying harder for what, I do not know). Most of the time, I lose my original focus completely.

      This sounds nothing like when I lose lucidity!

      I just forget that I'm dreaming, like it slips my mind.

      Sometimes I shift from lucidity to normal dreaming and back again. There is no physical feeling of change to me, it's more like a fight to gain full lucidity and I actually feel frustrated when I'm loosing it.

      An example, last night I was dreaming loads but gained semi-lucidity in parts and none in others. I had about four different dreams which shifted from one to another and they gradually got more lucid. I think I was sub-consciously trying to get lucid because the last dream I had was annoying me. The dream was about me going on a journey through a street with crowds of people following me and stopping me from getting in touch with my boyfriend. I started to fight the dream and fly away from the people but because I hadn't achieved full lucidity I couldn't. I was always getting pulled back towards them so I embraced this and let them walk through me (one of my favourite things to do whilst lucid is to walk through objects, people and buildings). Then I became a sort of female demon, and one of the people following me became my demon son that also got sexual with me! He kind of teamed up to stop all the people getting in my way and I managed to contact my boyfriend.

      I went a bit off topic there but as you can see it's not always straight forward for me when gaining or loosing lucidity!

      Well I don't have MUCH experience with losing lucidity because I've only ever lost lucidity once, and it was my first LD.

      What happened for me is whilst lucid, you know what's going and remember it as it's going on. When I lost lucidity, I only remembered what happened after I woke up instead of knowing that it was happening at that moment, if that makes any sense to you.

      You wouldn't know you were ever lucid in the first place so you wouldn't know

      Exactly Zezarict - When you awake, when you remember (which is all that matters. You could've did every single dream goal but if you don't remember it.. you never did) there is no change in thoughts or feeling.

      That's not entirely true. I've had plenty of dreams where I've lost lucidity and I remembered the entire dream, nonlucid, getting lucid, losing lucidity and everything in between. There's no reason I would forget just because I lost lucidity--I would still remember the whole dream just as I'd remember any other dream.

      I don't see why you wouldn't remember a dream even if you lose lucidity

      I'll have to agree with Desert Claw. It's like IWL. Most people aren't "lucid" IWL all the time. Some are rarely ever lucid. You get distracted by something and forget it basicly.
      Remember. Nothing is true and everything is permitted.

      Asking this is like asking what it feels like to forget something, because that's exactly what it is. It's forgetting that you're in a dream.
