So, I got up this morning 7am and because I was cold and didn't want put on the heating just yet, I had a cup of tea and went back to bed about
I thought I was still awake when I suddenly became aware that I was walking along a street that I didn't recognise but had a vague memory of, a
'deja vu' moment. I stopped and looked up the street to my left, then looked at the street off to my right, turned and looked behind me and forward
of me, and I recognised that I was at the same place I come to in my dreams when I am asleep.
I suddenly thought to myself, 'does this mean this place really exists, or does it mean that I am actually asleep and I am in a dream?'. I then
thought to myself 'one way to find out, if this is a dream I will be able to fly'. I walked a few steps and jumped into the air, I couldn't
believe it as I became weightless as I slowly left the ground and ascended about 10 feet off the ground and floated back down. I did it again and
went higher, but then I remembered that I don't like heights at all and decided not to go so high that I become scared. While I was doing this I
noticed there was a little boy walking past and I wondered if he could see me, and if he could would he be shocked to see me slowly bouncing so high
off the ground and coming back down. I could see him looking at me as I descended, but he just looked away and carried on walking past as if what I
was doing was normal. I watched him go for a few seconds but he didn't even look back.
When he'd gone I gently leapt into the air a couple of feet and I didn't want to float back down, I was upright and moved my arms up and then down
(as if swimming to surface), and this one motion propelled me so fast upwards that I was shocked at the speed and height that I had to stop and come
back down. But, I thought to myself, at least I'd found out how to fly. And then I decided to try it out (but not too high up lol).
I leapt up into the air and moved my arms just a little bit to gain a little height, then I leaned forward and moved my arms again and I was moving
forward so fast, I was flying. Then I knew that I was awake in a dream. My first lucid dream. I flew around and around and couldn't believe how
easy it was, it was fantastic. I saw people walking dogs in a field and I swooped them hoping to see shocked expressions when they realised they were
seeing a person actually flying. They looked up at me but their expressions didn't change, and I wondered if this was normal here in the 'dream'
I could see there was a dog off-leash and it was chasing a little dog, so I came back down and picked the little dog up until its owners caught up.
Then I remember helping some other people separate their dogs which had got into a squabble.
A weird thing I have to mention, while this was happening I recalled that in my 'normal' dreams there was a house not far away and in 'normal'
dreams I lived in this house, so I went to see if it was there while in this 'awake' dream. It was there. But I was shocked to find it almost
derelict. I'm puzzled why it was derelict, when in 'normal' dreams it's perfect. Then I woke up.
The whole thing seemed like I was 'lucid' dreaming for about 10-20 minutes at most, but when I looked at the clock it was 11am - 2 and a half hours
I've heard and read about other people who have had lucid dreams and I've been so envious, because I usually wake up as soon as I become 'aware'
that I am dreaming, so annoying.
I just thought I'd share my fantastic new experience with my ATS friends.
