      My first (proper) LD!


      Yay! At last!

      This morning I dreamt that I travelled back in time, and saw my hometown how it used to look. I walked over a bridge and down a street, and while I was walking it occured to me that time travel was impossible. I did some reality checks, all of which failed, but I remembered a dream I'd had before where a reality check failed, and concluded that I was dreaming because of the time travel. The realisation that such a realistic environment was in fact just a dream was pretty weird!

      As soon as I became lucid, however, the dream began to fade. Everything became hazy and sort of "milky", like someone had thrown a bucket of water over a painting that hadn't finished drying properly. I touched a nearby wall and felt the rough texture of the brick, but it didn't help much, so I decided to try dream spinning.

      It's a bit hard to explain, but by this time I was also aware of my real body, lying in bed. When I began to spin I had to be careful not to move my real body, only my dream body. I found myself in a swirling vortex of bright grey and white static, a bit like a TV screen with no signal. I tried to visualise a new dream scene, but woke up.

      It's difficult to say exactly how long I was lucid, but I think it was about 15-20 seconds.

      It took me three weeks to get this far, since I first started researching lucid dreaming. Any beginners who are reading this, and were thinking of giving up on LDing, don't! Persevere, you will have one eventually!

      Before I went to bed last night, I positively told myself that I would have an LD, do you think that could have helped? Any ideas on how to make my next one last a bit longer? Thanks!

      Im still very new at this but I have read a bunch of people who rub their hands together to keep lucid and extend their dreams.

      Yes I know, I should have thought of that! Perhaps I'll try next time...

      Rubbing your hands together indeed is a good way of keeping lucid

      Also, just yelling "Clarity!!" or "Stay lucid!!!" sometimes helps

      Although I've been lucid 2x, I didn't think of doing either one, it's so stupid =/

      I had my first LD within a week of trying(2 days of hard work and then relaxed the next 3 nights) and what I found that helped was spinning and rubbing your hands together while focusing on the rubbing. Touching textures like you did is also supposed to help
