      Wooooo- Hooo!!!!! Lucid at last!!!

      I'll just copy in today's entry from my DJ. Oh, and it's been almost exactly one month since I started recording my dreams and trying for lucidity. Actually this is only the third dream of last night... the other 2 weren't lucids.

      Lucidity at last!!!!
      Dream
      Lucid (finally I get some use out of it!!)

      1. Driving me Lucid
        I'm walking along a highway watching cars go by and wishing I could be in one of them instead of walking. Suddenly one of them crashed into a ditch right next to a tree and the woman driving pops through the side of the car like a ghost. When she rolls on the ground she's hurt, and that makes me think "She must be real" (as if there are 'real' people and cars here as well as dream people and dream cars. See the logic... if she was a dreamer or a DC she wouldn't have gotten hurt.)

        I go lucid. God it feels so good to finally be able to write that!!!! Here it is again just for good measure. I go lucid. Hah!! Lucid lucid lucid! I suddenly realize that, since I'm dreaming, I could stop a car and just take it for myself. I step out in front of an oncoming car with my hand raised, it stops, and I walk up to the driver's door. There's a brief dream edit here... I don't see just how I got the driver out of the car or what happened to him, but next thing I know I'm driving it along the highway. It reminds me of the game Driver when you can switch cars. Unfortunately the car I got is an old road boat... a brown Delta 88 or something. When I floor the gas it makes a spluttering sound and almost dies, doesn't go any faster. But I remember things I've read on Dreamviews and in ETWOLD etc, and I decide to find a Turbo button hidden somewhere on the dash, disguised as a regular button. I try the wiper button - the wipers come on. Damn! I try the lighter - it's just a lighter. But lo and behold... there's ANOTHER lighter just above it!! That must be it! I pull it out - it's just another lighter.

        So I think for a bit. I realize I have to somehow make myself BELIEVE one of these buttons could actually be a turbo button, and I;m trying to come up with a way to do that, when I suddenly notice there are 4 red VW beetles around me. I laugh and think 'well, those have GOT to be dream cars!!!' I don't seem to be fully lucid, I still think most of the cars around me are "real". So I cut off one of the VWs and switch to driving it instead. It's a much faster car, and when I step on the gas it doesn't splutter and almost die. I'm humming along at about 70 or 80, weaving rapidly in and out of traffic. I'm having a blast, when it occurs to me I don't have a license and I'm driving illegally. Somehow I completely gloss over the fact that I also just stole 2 cars! But I remind myself that this is a dream so I can't get busted.

        And I run into the wall on my right. A moment ago it was a row of storefronts, now I'm driving inside a mall and I just ran into the doorway of a restaurant! Heh.. considering I was doing 80, it was just a tiny little bump though. The restaurant is at the end of a corridor, so I back up and whip the car around. A couple of teenage punks come out and look at me as I drive off over the tiles into the mall, laughing because this feels so cool.

        Now instead of driving I'm walking in one of the stores. Beside me is Ronnie Haas, who was in one of my recent dreams. I'm telling him that I have a cool dream car that will do all kinds of tricks and go real fast and we ought to go for a drive in it, but he seems annoyed and doesn't believe me. Until I tell him I'm dreaming... then he smiles with this wicked look that says Awwww hell yeeeah!! But a girl who's walking behind us overhears and suddenly leans up and starts hitting Ronny all over the shoulders and back, screaming something I can't understand. Her arms and head swell up alarmingly and she falls down and starts convulsing. Shit... now we have to make sure she's ok...
        And I wake up.


      I obviously wasn't fully lucid... if I was I would have been flying around rather than driving an old clunker. I wish when I remembered ways to make things happen in dreams I also would have remembered to do an RC and stabilize the dream. Last night I was reading somebody's DJ and he had a dream where he was driving but he remembered he doesn't have a license. That must be where that idea came from.

      Well done Darkmatters!!! Wahoo! I haven't been to this site for a loooooong time and I'd forgotten how refreshing it is to read about someone's excitement on getting lucid the first time. It really is a unique and magical experience huh?

      Keep up the good work

      Congratulations! Sounds like it lasted for quite a long time, considering it was your first!

      Thanks Taromon777.

      I actually had a lucid the third night or so I was trying, but it only lasted about 3 seconds, so I don't really count it. This is the first one of any length though. I was beginning to think it was NEVER going to happen. But the fact that it did gives me so much confidence! I hope to start having them more frequently, and gaining clarity and stability.

      Actally usually it isn't because the first time someone becomes lucid they usually wake up. Actually they usaully wake up the first few times. But the first lasting lucid dream is whats fun and magical.

      I sometimes have the problem of not realizing that everything in the dream is real. I often think that the people I recognize in the dream (even when it's lucid) are the real people and I'm trying to convince them that I'm dreaming by showing them reality checks and things lol. Even when I'm very aware I can still be trying to show my DC's how this whole thing is a dream by putting my finger through my hand or something.

      Dude, your first lucid beats mine. All I did in my first one was jump very high, tried to summon a dragon and then I woke up.

      Anyways, Congrats on your first! It should be easier to have more now.

      Good Luck!

      When I said "It really is a unique and magical experience huh?" I was referring to lucidity in general, not just getting lucid the first time. Although I still think most people find it pretty awesome the first time they achieve lucidity, even if it only lasts a few seconds, which is normally the case. I don't see many threads on dv titled "Bummed out that I got lucid".

      That's interesting because the exact same thing happened to me. It was many years ago now but I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was in the lounge of the house I lived in at the time and I kept trying to wake up but couldn't. Eventually I sat down on the couch wondering if I had died in my sleep and this was the afterlife. It sounds crazy but I had no idea what was going on and no way to figure it out. I was just all alone in a neverending lucid dream
