I was hoping someone could maybe answer this question for me.
This morning I was dreaming that I was driving a car. My phone in my bedroom is on my nightstand, about a foot away from my head. It started
ringing, and I heard the ringing in my dream, but it didn't really wake me up all the way.
In my dream, I heard the ringing, and I realized it was my phone. I remember thinking, "Ignore it, or you'll wake up." In my dream, I grabbed the
steering wheel tighter, and concentrated on driving. I then remember various other details from the remainder of my dream that are not relevant.
The point is, I heard my phone ringing, knew what it was, and made the conscious decision (I think) to ignore it and continue on with my dream. Does
this count as lucid dreaming? I have had dreams before where I was sure it was a dream, and so I behaved a certain way based on the fact that I was
dreaming. What happened this morning was new, though.
By the way... When I got up this morning, I checked my caller ID. I thought that maybe my phone didn't really ring, and that the ringing was just
part of my dream. Nope. My phone really did ring around 7:15 this morning.
