Last night I had one of the longest dreams that I have had in a very long time. It took awhile for me to actually realize I was in a dream and so my lucid dream didn’t last that long but the build up of it was very interesting and kind of funny. I have had many lucid dreams but this was the first time that I became lucid because of the sun. It was also partly because of time too. I kept checking the time and it seemed to be going backwards which made me question where I was.
My dream started out in an ally. I was sitting in my truck and waiting in line to get into a concert. The first thing I remember was handing my keys to valet. Me and a few of my friends entered the concert but I quickly realized once I got in I was all alone. After walking around for awhile I ended up meeting a guy at the bar and I remember he was very boisterous and wild. There was music everywhere and I was just walking around and exploring.
The next thing I know we are all sitting in front of a stage waiting for the bands to come on. The man that I met had said that his cousins were about to play. He told me the name of them but I can’t remember now. The band came on and I remember absolutely hating the music. It’s crazy the sounds of music that your mind can come up with in your dreams. I started walking around looking for something else to listen to but I remember all I could find was silence in my dreams.
I remember that the dream was extremely vivid. As I was walking around I was coming across all kinds of different people. I was observing everyone walk by and thinking how many different personalities in the world there are. I finally ran into my old friends that I came into the concert with and they took me to a new area that I had never been too.
The whole scenery changed and I was no longer at a concert but up on a hill with a bunch of concession stands everywhere. Is what started to trip me out was that it was that the sun was out and was probably an hour from setting. I should have become lucid at this moment but my dreaming mind came up with a reason as to why the sun was out. I thought ‘oh where on the other side of the hill so that’s why we can still see the sun from here.’ As I looked out in the distance I could see houses everywhere and thought how awesome it would be to live there and have an extra few hours of daylight.
I continued going through the motion of my dream and then looked up at the sun and realized that it was in the same exact spot. This is when I checked the time and I believe it said that it was 6pm. This was when I became very confused because earlier the day before I had watched the sun set and it was at 0730. I started thinking that somehow I had gone back in time. I started asking everyone around me what time it was and what time we had got there. Once again my mind came up with an excuse and I went on with the dream.
It wasn’t until what felt like hours later (dream time) that I seen the sun had not moved still. I checked the time and now it said 5:45. This was finally when I stopped and started thinking about what was going on and realized that I must be in a dream. I then started my lucid dream.
Every time I am in a lucid dream I usually like to talk to people and hear what they say (knowing that it comes from my own subconscious), or I like to fly, or I like to find random girls in my dream and sleep with them. This is usually all that I do depending on what I am thinking about at the time. This time I just decided to be an observer of my dream and try not to control what was going on but just experience what was happening.
I decided that I wanted to take pictures of my dream so that when I wake up I could print them out and see what was happened when I woke up. (This shows my level of lucidity was still low as I believed this was possible.) I started taking a bunch of pictures from my phone and they were quite vivid. I was thinking how great of a photographer I am while I am dreaming.
It seemed that as I was looking at the pictures I was taking my mind got distracted and I lost lucidity. Someone came to me and told me to hurry up as everyone was leaving me. Right then my dream turned into completely different scenery and my lucid dream had ended.
I haven’t had a lucid dream in awhile so I am out of practice but next time I need to make sure that I don’t lose it so quickly and also that it doesn’t take so long for me to realize that I am dreaming. All well, there’s always tomorrow night.
