Can I have a Lucid Dream Tonight?
Here are two short lucid dreaming stories submitted by Chris and Jack. Is what I find interesting is there are many similarities in all lucid dreams. You will find in Chris’s dream that he had a false awakening after trying to die. This has happened in my dreams countless times. This is why it is so important to conduct reality checks as soon as you wake up in real life when you are first learning. Especially after you have a lucid dream. After awhile your brain will recognize these patterns and prevent you from having false awakenings, but this is a recurring problem with beginners. Anyways, hope you enjoy the stories:
So first when I went to bed, I sort of just asked myself “Can I have a lucid dream tonight?”, and then I did so I’m not sure if it’s a coincidence or not. So with the actual dream, I did a good reality check and was like “Oh hey, I’m dreaming!” So I tried flying, and it worked much better than last time. I found that this time I actually have a body, and could see my hands. So then I tried falling and dieing to see what happens, and for around 3 seconds I was just on the ground, blind. Then I had a very strange false awakening. I woke up with the room looking all crazy, the light on, and I was standing up. If I was thinking properly, I would easily have realized it was a dream. I was like “Aha! Caught you false awakening”, but then as I lost lucidity I started to wonder if I really was dreaming, and came up with some crazy excuse as to how I woke up in the middle of the room. The scene changed and I became lucid again, but unfortunately I can’t remember any other parts of the dream.

I was on my street but it all looked strange. I started to walk down it and random people began to follow me, I began to start running because the people following started to look more menacing but as I started my bones started to shift and I had the ability to run on all fours very fast. After a while of running I managed to get to a house that looked normal, I walked inside and the walls started to open around me. The walls opened on to a very nice view from a mountain and then I woke up
