The dream started in my backyard, I had never had a lucid dream before this one. I just remember all of a sudden saying to myself in the dream “I am dreaming” then I knew. All of a sudden I was present. The first thing I did was jump. My first jump I probably reached 10 feet off the ground then returned at normal gravity speed. This was frightening at first because I thought the landing would hurt but it didn’t. It was as if my muscles were stronger and could take the load. I jumped again and again each time getting a little higher until I was able to jump back and forth over my house. Smile ear to ear, it was the greatest feeling ever.. until I realized I didn’t ever have to come down.
I jumped higher than I ever had at least 100 ft in the air then I focused on going higher.. first I just levitated a little like I was slowly falling back down to earth instead of quickly. In my dream I practiced and then finally I jumped and just kept going higher and higher, then I leveled out my body and I was flying.. Slowly, but it was happening except that I was flying and getting lower quite slowly. But I kept practicing.
Then it happened I accepted I had complete control.. I kneeled down and exploded off the ground into flight. I was as high as the clouds soaring as fast as an airplane over my hometown, taking in all the scenery and places I usually hang out. I had complete control. I could change direction, swoop down and fly with my hand touching the lake etc. It was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had and it was a DREAM.. But it was as real as reality.
Then I was at school with friends and I told them I could fly, they didn’t believe me until I started levitating in front of them. They were beside themselves, nearly fainting and couldn’t believe me. I then asked my best friend if he wanted to come, he said sure. I picked him up like he was a feather and we blasted off. I was flying incredibly fast now, faster than any rocket or plane, Superman style, I was flying what must have been 5,000 miles an hour or faster just completely soaring at impossible speed. Eventually I was soaring out of the atmosphere, past the mood and clusters of stars. It was so beautiful I began to weep and my friend was in disbelief, there sharing the moment with me.
It was at some point in space that I woke up and I tried so hard to go back to sleep and couldn’t. I was frustrated and so happy at the same time. To this day it was the best dream I’ve ever had and I will never forget it. I had never heard of lucid dreaming before that night and I googled it shortly after to learn about it but have never put in the time to perfect it. I look back on the dream not as a dream but as an incredible memory because of how insanely vivd and “real” it all was. Truly an amazing experience I’ll never forget.
