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

Subject: I have no idea what just happened
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?

Subject: Multiple ones in one night on the first night?
So I’m a bit confused considering last Sunday was what I belive to be my first Lucid dream. I had always sought to Astral Project and learned lucid dreaming helped achieve this so I decided to attempt to master both. Well this night I didn’t intend for it to happen, didn’t even think about it. Remember this detail because it was the detail that awakened me.
I had received a laptop from a cancer group, (I’m 15) for free and only had this laptop a few weeks. That night before I went to bed the last thing I did was close the laptop and set on my night stand. After a lot of thinking about how I missed my girlfriend, I feel asleep, and began having a nightmare.
I was lying in my bed with my laptop open turned on and next to me while being choked by a demon. While I was being choked I noticed the laptop out in the corner of my eye. I said to myself that I could have sworn I set that on my night stand, then it hit me, I was dreaming. Suddenly the demon and the laptop disappeared and I was just lying in my bed. I didn’t know that I had done something this site calls a reality check, but I’m still confused as to why the demon and laptop went away.
The next thing I did was think, and then suddenly I awoke, around 5:00 in the morning and couldn’t fall back asleep due to the amount of fear and excitement that had come over me. I fell asleep maybe an hour later, and then dreamed about my girlfriend. I was laying next to her in bed, fully clothed, and she began to talk about her dream. I told my girlfriend in the past about attempting OBE (Out of Body Experience) and Lucid Dreaming, so I began to tell her about the dream I had, but only I thought it was the night before. Then I said I didn’t remember falling asleep that night, and then she froze up, and then I said to her, “Oh my God Skyy, (my girlfriend’s name), I feel like I’m dreaming.”
I began to sit and try to remember my day, then it hit me, I was dreaming, and I heard a long GONG and then she had disappeared. I was laying in her bed, without a clue what to do. Then I found myself in another dream, one with my friend Meigan, who I wasn’t all that close to. We were both famous and seemed real, I Remember my aunt being the manager for what ever we did. Well in the dream my aunt took me to the wrong room, and she had told me the room was mine, when really it was Meigan’s. Then I went to sleep, and Meigan got in the bed next to me, she turned over and screamed.
After a few moments of pitch black I awoke into yet another dream. I was dreaming about astral projection, something I have been fooling around with at least once a week. I had gotten to sleep paralysis a couple a times, but always became fearful and freakout and moved and struggled because the noises I heard freaked me out. Well, thinking I was awake I attempted to astral project. I succeeded in my dream almost instantly. Instead of happening like the articles I read explained, I was being pulled around the house with my eyes closed, I felt my hand touch the hard wood floor, which is odd because it felt real for sure, but every time I opened my eyes I was back in my bed. And I attempted this over and over again. Then I began to give up and looked over to my left, the laptop was missing. Then again I realized I was dreaming.
So I had began to experiment using the fake astral projection for an experiment, I decided to have my body lifted up, instead of pulled across the floor, and it did so. I decided I wanted to be at my grandparents house, and I ended up in the garage, only I was a lot taller. I think I had lost focus and became a zombie again, once I saw my aunt. It was weird, because now that I think about it, one distraction was all it took for me to play out the rest of my dream.
I had more dreams but none of which were Lucid. The fact that I remember them clearly is a good sign though right? I can’t believe I felt the hard wood floor, it felt so real, who wouldn’t believe they weren’t dreaming, it was impossible. I fell like I’m accomplishing something here. Although one thing about me is different, I feel so head light today, like as if some sort of weight that I actually liked is missing. I have nightmares about demons and my girlfriend dying a lot, maybe if I can master this, I can fend off what always haunts me at night, and stop it from happening. I don’t know, I feel weird about all this. Is that normal?
Lucid Dreaming Stories: Dillon, This is one of the best stories we have received here and I just want to thank you for taking the time to write it all out in this much detail and share it with us. I have had many nights like this where I will experience multiple lucid dreams, false awakenings, and false astral projections all in one night.
What is most interesting is that this was your first night experiencing lucid dreaming and you had so much lucidity through it all. This type of lucid dreaming is much more advanced but I believe that you experimenting with astral projection is what allowed you to go so far in your lucid dreams. Like you said in your story one little distraction and you forget your dreaming and everything is thrown off. Once you realize you are dreaming you must stay extremely focused to keep yourself at a high level of lucidity. This can take years to master.
That noise you are describing when attempting to have an OBE is called astral noise. For me it’s like a combination of hissing, cracking, popping, and sometimes hearing voices whisper, though it may be different for other people. I still have trouble getting through this stage sometimes but you cannot let it distract you or you will never stay relaxed enough to astral project.
I don’t think that people realize how real a dream can actually feel. Especially when you become lucid and pay attention to the feelings. I have had dreams that I can honestly say were more real than reality itself. I believe this is because our senses and emotions are heightened when we are dreaming and so it can be more intense than waking life.
Also do you think that you were actually experiencing astral projection or just dreaming that you were astral projection? Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference sometimes and takes practice.
Also I am currently writing a post about overcoming the fear of astral projection. It will help you get over the fear of sleep paralysis and also getting over the demon experience. I will update this with a link as soon as I finish it. (Sometime this month hopefully)
Anyways thanks for the story and if anyone else is reading this far then take this as an example when submitting your story. The more details you write down the more you will remember and the more vivid your lucid dreams will become.
P.S. This story is going in our Best Lucid Dreaming Story archive which I will start putting on the front page.

Btw I’m 13 and am fascinated about lucid dreaming after I had my first lucid dream when I was 6. Well so I woke up in my bed as always but it seemed too dark. It was completely my room but when I turned the lamp on nothing happened (just changed the bulb) then I sort of looked at my hand and then it started. I knew I was lucid dreaming but I couldn’t control stuff like I always do. So I was confused I tried to change the mood of the dream but nothing happend all I did was close my eyes then when I opened it I thought again that I woke up. Things started getting strange. I saw a tall shadowy figure in front of me and it had a long black suit. I said fuck off you’re just a nightmare but nothing happened. I felt choked then I was like fuck it and I kicked his crotch and I’m like this isn’t that bad so I started having wings and flew away. Yeah I kinda had fun in this post apocalyptic world . When I woke up because of the alarm I was like fuck that dream was bittersweet xD .

Sidenote: This is my fourth dream, following ‘My Girlfriend-Becoming Lucid‘ I suggest reading the others first, but it isn’t necessary:
As soon as I can remember, I was lucid. It was really dark, but there was a glow surrounding me, as if I were a glow stick. I was outside, and the grass was about waist high. My ankles hurt badly, and the right one was going numb, causing me to limp. I was looking for something, I didn’t know what it was, but knew that when I saw it that I would know to grab it. All around me, silhouetted figures were standing all around me, their backs turned to me. I tried to make it day, but I couldn’t. The figure closest to me slowly turned my way. Long black hair covered the face, and a girls voice spoke from behind it. “You need my help, let me give you some.” Her hand lunged at my chest, and scratched four long marks across the length of my torso. The marks seemed to make no sense, but then the glow around me focused itself through the marks, which shot a beam of light out of my body. It took a left around a tree twenty feet away. I tried to walk away, but my stomach felt like it was being ripped out of my body if I didn’t follow the path.
I followed the path until I came to a brick shelter that couldn’t fit more than five people. I walked inside and all my friends were there. “Guys, how are you, I’ve been looking for you everywhere!” They turn around, and their eyes have been scratched out, similar to my torso. “Sorry, I did that.” I spin to see the evil girl behind me. “You b*tch!” I scream, and fling myself at her. She predicts it and moves out of the way, then throws her arm out and catches me by my eyes. She slings me to the ground, and sits on top of me, scraping at my eyes. I lose my vision, but I somehow sense where everything is. I roll to the side, and all of a sudden, there’s no ground beneath me, and the evil girl is screaming a gut wrenching scream. I think about my wings, and I finally feel their extra weight. I snap them open, and her screams get further and further away, until I hear her body crunch far below. I fly steady, screaming at myself to wake up. It’s really hard, and for a few moments, I can’t get out of the dream. Finally, I jump up, and look around. I can see again, and notice the familiarity of my room. I didn’t fall asleep for the rest of the night, and the girls scream rings in my ears. I text my friends, and a few answer. I’m finally back in reality.
This was my first lucid nightmare, hoped you liked it. And remember, fly safe!
