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.

Running From Friends
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

Subject: Real-Life Affects Lucid Dream
This is one of the more peculiar dreams of mine; I have never had a dream above limited lucidity. When I want something to happen, it doesn’t, but if something clicks at the back of my mind, my imagination swirls and it happens. I don’t know why I get lucid dreams as I am not very self conscious most the time. I did not intend to get the dreams. I just get them without trying, so I guess I’m pretty lucky.
The dream started out semi-lucid right off the bat. It was the middle of the day, and I was in my school, fifth period social studies. I realized something peculiar was happening. (I didn’t intend to have a lucid dream)For instance, the room was a lot more colorless, odorless, and featureless. The fish tank was missing, as well as all the posters on the wall and projects. That was when I realized I was in a dream, and suddenly I was back at my house at night. I must’ve been reading too much of those WWII books recently, because there were uniformed men at our door.
Suddenly, my senses improved and I heard a voice, “Report immediately or we will be force to comply with orders.” By now, I was fully aware of my sleepiness, cool air, and fabrics of my sheets. This was my first lucid dream in which a real threat has been displayed, so instead of doing what I would do in an unconscious dream, like just stumbling along into captivity, I did what I would do in real life. I made a run for it, smashing through the living room window and sprinting across the streets, which was heaving and cracking and the clouds were red. But like I said, even in a lucid dream, my mind won’t allow things that don’t make sense in real life, or at least things in my control.
I stopped to catch my breath and fell onto the garden floor next to our local library. The garden was less realistic, without any bugs, or imperfections in the plants design. The soil felt moist and I actually fell into another sleep. This one was of waking up into my room, muttering something and feeling relived that it was over. But of course I was wrong. I lie down in my bed, falling asleep again. (In case you haven’t noticed, I fall through many layers during my dreams, since in real life I’m always tired.)
Now I was in a meadow. I don’t remember what happened here, but it was the place where I realized I had fallen too far. A huge screeching sound happened and I woke up in my ‘room’ again. There was a slimy red slug on my forehead, and soon it formed many others which began sliding down my neck. I must’ve lost some consciousness, since I started walking around. I remember stumbling outside, and hearing another screeching sound that brought me back to reality. I willed myself to wake up, and it worked like it usually does. Now I was back in the mound of soil. From here, I lost a lot of consciousness, being shipped into a dome, seeing some nasty human dissections, and being lead down to a building.
Then I fell into blackness for a period of time I don’t remember until hearing a strum, but at that point I didn’t know it was my own alarm, just something in my dream. In the room I was a again, the sound of my alarm fading away, when I became fully lucid and aware of the red emergency button that I was imagining from a alien invasion movie at the back of my head. I leaned over and pressed it, like the main character Chris had done, and the room spun into chaos with people running all over the place. I think I saw some familiar faces, but then I woke up. That’s when I understood the screeching sounds of my door, the alarm, and the wet beads of sweat that had trickled down my neck…I hate it when things in real life affect the dream world. Two things that would make the dreams better:
1: Nothing from real life interfering with deeper layers of dreaming
2: Being able to control things…complete lucidity

I’ve been having a problem sleeping where I’d wake up feeling paralyzed and couldn’t breathe, it would take everything I had to move just a finger. I researched this problem about three weeks ago and found to it be sleep paralysis. While reading info on that I came across lucid dreaming, in complete disbelief I read on and decided to try it.
Last night I went out with friends stayed out to 3am came home and went to bed, I only got a few hours sleep before we all met up for breakfast. So when I came home I decided to take a nap to charge up for a party tonight.
As soon as my head hit the pillow I was asleep and my sleep paralysis started. Still feeling scared to just let it run its course (feels like I’m
going to die) I started to fight it after letting it go on longer than normal. I pushed myself up out of bed as hard as I possibly could then it was effortless I was standing at the foot of my bed clinching my pillow as I advanced through the house floating, once in the kitchen I no longer had the pillow and looked at the clock on the stove and saw odd times that made no sense with every glance. I realized I was lucid dreaming. For some reason I started packing up chairs and smashing them and my alarm clock was unplugged on the kitchen table but still had numbers, I woke up only to have my dog in the bed even though he was outside where I put him so I looked at the clock again crazy numbers so I ran outside jumped in the truck and headed to town. The roads looked fine but seemed to be covered in ice as I was fishtailing all over the place and crashed into a lot of cars. Woke up for real after that.
Still not having enough experience to completely control my dreams I fell back sleep. This time when I woke up I tried to put items in my dream and it was working. Still couldn’t automatically dress myself had to do it in my dream and made my way safely to town where my dirty mind took over. I will just leave it at that to keep this PG.
I honestly did not believe this could work. When reading up on it i did not really follow the steps of writting down your dreams, I’ve always been able to remember a good amount of them as long as I went over the dream as soon as I awake. I hope I can continue to get better and at controlling these dreams its fun to play with. I understand my dreams are not great and magical or carry any meaning but its a start and its what I experienced for my first which im excided about. But back to real life for now..

I had returned home from picking up a friend at the Palm Springs Airport and decided I would take a nap in the hopes for Sleep Paralysis (as I tend to get it often and want to astral project). But what happened was something I couldn’t have anticipated.
I woke up in my room, but there was someone next to me. I felt around, then looked to see who it was. It was my friend Alma, who I had just dropped off at home after picking up from the airport. I asked her, how did you get here, she didn’t know. I asked if my family had noticed her come in, she didn’t know. In fact, she had no answers for me, other than “I don’t know, I just woke up,” so I decided to look at the clock to check if this was a dream or not…and my digital clock had no answer to what time it was, I was lucid!!
I went out to the living room and saw my family sitting watching TV. I left the house, but was instantly driving my truck. Alma and a girl friend of hers were both riding in the back. Then her friend, who I will refer to as punker girl, grabbed and tickled me. As we were driving on a curving cliff road, the tickle started us over the side. As we were falling, I thought in my head that this is only a dream, and when we land, I will be safe…the fall was just as vivid as a real one.
Once landed, I turned and told the girls to hold hands in the form of a circle and we would use our intent to get back up to the road. But no dice.
Then as if in a instant, we were driving again. This time I was in the passenger seat, the girls in the back still, and a man who I did not know or communicate with was driving. My attention was almost completely captivated by punker girl. We kept talking, and I felt a strong connection to her for a reason I couldn’t identify.
As we were talking on this trip, she told me that we were going to meet soon in the future. I kept asking her questions, so that I could remember her and talk to her when we met. She said she thought I was hot ever since she saw me on the bus. I asked what bus, and she said I looked like the guy from that movie Roadtrip, the guy that made the pot that couldn’t be tested by any drug test. She also said that it’s all heavy black guys nowadays, while looking at a magazine (I still have no idea what that meant). I read her tattoos, but can only remember that they had a lot of red in them.
She was really good at controlling MY dream and said she had a ton of experience with lucid dreaming. Alma chimed in and validated her claim.
I tried my hardest to control any little aspect of the dream, but every attempt left me in no control at all. The girls even made fun of me for trying the moves like on Dragon Ball Z in a futile attempt to move something. Then the ride was over, we were where we were going…
We came up to a doorway that had two big doors, like at a doctors office or something. Once through the door, I tried to move a desk…and it moved! But with a huge delay, so I turned around and saw a women in a lab coat moving it. In my mind, I kept thinking, how can all of my dream characters control MY dream, but I can’t!
I asked her to help me learn how to control my lucid dreams, and she agreed, then told me to follow. The girls did not come with us, they left as I was getting ready to follow the lab coat woman down the hallway. The woman, who I will refer to as Dr. Labcoat, told me that my “speech cognition was really good.” I said thanks, not really knowing what she meant.
Then we reached a room at the end of the hallway with some other lab coat people walking around, a chair in the middle of the room, and some type of machine in the corner of the room.
She sat me down, then put some diodes on my head. I kept clapping and rubbing my hands in order to stay lucid longer, I wanted the procedure to work in a hope that my subconscious would somehow unlock the power of controlling the lucid dream for subsequent lucid dreams.
I sat there for a few seconds, then turned around, and saw a previous college roommate. But he was frozen! I asked what was wrong, and he replied by touching an object and freezing it. I told him I was super hot, so I got up and gave him a hug in order to warm him up. Right after I did so, Dr. Labcoat turned to me and told me “I couldn’t control that,” Meaning that my roommate was not planned or something, at least that’s the feeling that I got from it.
Then everything started to fade to black. NO! I tried everything, but couldn’t stay any longer. I woke up in sleep paralysis, and tried to desperately go back into the dream. Then, as I was coming out of SP, I heard the loudest bell sound off, DING! Just like a front desk hotel bell. Wasn’t my phone, wasn’t any other “thing” I could attribute to this sound. Then I was back in waking reality.
The entire dream was so vivid and real, that it felt like I was somewhere else. Still haven’t come across Punker Girl in real life or in my dreams.

In the dream I wake up, it was dark everywhere. But then, from the dark I could see the things that are around me. I was scared at first, then I go out of my bedroom towards my parent’s bedroom. The real door is white, but this time it’s covered with dark red, almost like blood. When I opened it, I saw my parent’s skeleton or bones laying down on their bed. I cried loudly then woke up back on my own bed. That was the first, now the second time.
I woke up again and did the same thing, but this time I didn’t cry instead. Now I walk downstairs and tried to go out of my house, I grabbed a knife then went outside. Holy sh*t everything is dark with a red moon above the sky and I am like,’the hell just happened here?’. I heard loud screams that bleed my ears then I woke up.
The third time was like this… After that loud scream, I started to travel around the block. Zombies everywhere like ants on a sugar. I ran back to my house and saw my friends are all there to take cover, to hide from zombies. Now then I felt a lot safer with my friends over there, we fought a few of zombies but managed to survive. I help the wounded, bandage their arm, give them antidotes and more. Then I fell asleep as my friend is on the watch. Then I woke up back on my bed again. Sh*t what the hell was all of that, now that dream is still shadowing me… Damn it,will I come back there again?
