I have had probably close to 30 lucid dreams in my life but it’s been years since the last time I experienced one. That’s why I was surprised when this one just happened on it’s own. I believe it was because there was so much emotions that went into this dream from all the chaos that it caused me to become lucid. A lot of confusion and frustration allowed me to realize that non of it was real.
The dream started out in my bedroom. My sister had entered into the house and in my dream I knew that it was like 2 o’clock in the morning. I was really confused as to how she got in and kept questioning her what she was doing here. I looked at my couch and there was a pillow and blankets so she was wanting to spend the night. After she laid down I remember I kept grabbing her and looking into her eyes asking if she was real.
I should have become lucid right at this moment but I didn’t. I repeatedly asked her if she was real and kept looking at her knowing that something wasn’t right. I thought this couldn’t be a dream because everything was too real.
The next thing I know now there is all kinds of people entering into my house and I didn’t recognize any of them. Then I saw the fire department inside blowing white powder on a fire that was behind the fridge. I was so confused as to what was going on. My mind started coming up with all kinds of reasons I was having this experience but non of them made any sense.
I first thought they came because they saw the fire and they wanted to help, but no one seemed to be paying attention to the fire. Then I was thinking that all these people were family and it was a holiday, but the only problem was I didn’t recognize any of them. Then I see my kid come out and I tell her to go to her room because I wanted to keep her safe from all these strangers.
I started getting very angry and frustrated. I was looking for my sister and yelling at everyone to leave me alone and get out of my house. Non of them would listen to me and I just started to scream because the chaos was too intense.
That was the moment that I became lucid. Everything clicked and instantly I knew that I was in a dream. My frustration and anger immediately turned into excitement.
I ran outside and everything looked almost like a cartoon video game. I saw a car parked outside and I thought that it would be really cool to go around driving it as fast as I could. I jumped in it and took off.
Now out of all the lucid dreams that I have had, this was the first time I ever drove a car in my dream. It was really cool just visualizing it going faster and slower. At first I was just driving medium speed dodging things and racing around. Then as I was driving I kept thinking go faster. Pretty soon everything turned into a blur and it felt like I was going at hyper speeds. It looked like a space movie as they go really fast through the stars but there was a lot more colors.
I remember thinking that I was going to get in a car accident if I wasn’t careful and so I made it slow down. Then I remember that it wouldn’t matter because I am only in a dream but by this time I was already done with the car and wanted to experience something else. The only problem was that when I slowed down my car had gotten stuck in a ditch.
Now this normally wouldn’t stop someone in a dream who is fully lucid but I think I got caught up in the excitement of driving that it distracted me from the fact that non of it was real.
I kept trying to go forward and backwards to get out of the ditch but nothing was working. This really got me distracted and before I knew it my lucidity was completely gone and the dream was over.
