Sharing the lucid dream I had

As far as I remember, I only had one lucid dream. It wasn't long ago, several months only. I haven't read a lot about them, just the general properties. It happens often that I remember glimpse of dreams in the morning and even when there's massive flaws in events, it is not enough for me to realize I'm dreaming.

But one night, I managed to realize I was dreaming. Nothing special in the process, the context a childhood's location. The object that made me aware of the dream was a tower in the background (there wasn't any tower near this place when I lived there).

The first thing I decided to do was to test the dream. I had read about capabilities such as flying at will, so I wanted to check if I could do these at will impossibilities. Conveniently, there was a car parked at the side of a road, so I decided to see if I could pass my hand through it. And it worked! I was surprised and excited by this.

Oh, there's much more I wanted to test and experience, since it was my first. Yet, my "freedom" didn't last long. Soon after I've tested my ability to pass through "objects", I saw, at distance, some kind of entity (I don't remember what it looked like, except its head was an energy ball). At that instant, it appeared before me and it increased gravitational force above me, to the point I was barely able to stay on my knees.

It took every bits of will I could manage to gather in order to actually overcome the pressure and stand up. Something surprised me though, there wasn't any hostility emanating both from me and the entity. It seems as it barely wanted to expel me from my dream (wake me up), or restrain
my movement. Despite the lack of hostility, or even fear, from me, I still went and attacked it.

This part is really blurry, and there isn't much I can say on the "fight" (if I can call it as such), but I remember that after the fight, I was walking up a hill, and when I reached the top, I woke up.

Now, I've used the term entity, but I doubt it is accurate. To be honest, I suspect it was a part of my "self". As to the reason behind its actions, I have two theories;

1. A test, it's kind of simplistic, but the lack of hostility and its dubious attempts make me think it could be some kind of test, but a test for what? I'm clueless, so I'm not fond of this theory.

2. I somewhat blocked myself from accessing certain parts of me via dreams. By that, I'm basically referring to the idea that the brain can sometime "erase" memories from consciousness if they are susceptible to pose problems.

While I'm not entirely dismissing it, I doubt it was an "external entity" such as tricksters that feed on dreams. I mean, if it were, and it wanted to expel me so that it can continue its business, there's probably better ways to wake up a lucid dreamer than putting pressure on him. I'm thinking more in the line of using fear as a more efficient tactic.

I'm really interested in the aspect that I wasn't in "full control" while lucid dreaming. I wasn't consciously controlling the pressure put upon me, and as I've said above, it took all my might to actually stand up again.

I'm not really trying to demystifying the dream, nor do I really seek to know what happened, or if the entity was me or not me. If anything, I'm just seeking discussion on dreams, or if anyone else have experienced something similar.

Hard to say, I don't know anyone aside from fake fortune tellers that can interpret dreams. For instance, I've been married for 36 years, almost all of those happy, never strayed aside from some flirting (yes, I know, don't judge me) but I have had some extremely lucid dreams with women I know in very pleasant circumstances. Last night in a dream I kissed one of my old classmates in a purely fun manner but man was it realistic. These don't happen often, maybe once or twice a year and usually during stressful times.

Don't read too much into it.

I'm not really interested in interpretation. But dreams are really interesting. For instance, I do remember from when I was a kid, that I've woken from one in which I was crying, and I was actually in tears.

I also remember that I've tested it several times to see if crying in dreams was really making me cry "in real life" and each time it did. Lol, now that I think of it, these were probably lucid dreams, since I was forcing the tears and then forced a wake up.

I had a very lucid dream a couple of years ago I still remember like it was yesterday, that dream was one of the most fun I’ve ever had. I could do things that we cant do in our waking life’s. I too had one of those entities that seemed evil but wasn’t, I confronted it and was able to form weapons/tools at will, I over powered it and it said to me that what I was doing was impossible and it asked me how I could do that.

The next day or two I dreamed again but not as lucid, that day after the dream I saw exactly what I dreamed, and I’ve never been to that place in my life. Precognitive dream.

To be honest, I'm totally clueless as to why I actually started attack it. I do remember I used energy beams à la DragonBall when fighting. Well, the technique was different; I was snapping my fingers to generate them.

This bit just came back while trying to remember the "fight". I don't remember any precognitive dreams, but I often get the sense of déjà vu. Maybe, once a month in average.

Forget the snappy finger fireball thing, I think it takes too much concentration.

Try throwing endless jelly rabbits in slow motion and use intermittent nemesis giggling. Just keep going.

Should destroy any entity who is trying to bully you and it's also really entertaining and could even lead you on a wonderful adventure if you slay the dragon, win the princess, save the land and THEN wake up in time for brekkie and a couple of daydreams to start you on your real adventure.

Tally ho!

I still remember an extremely lucid dream I had many many years ago. It was one of those dreams within a dream type deals. Most of the details have faded, but I clearly remember being utterly confused about the whole thing.

This is what I do remember; I had a dream. Though I don't remember the details now, I did at the time. After I woke, I laid there in bed for awhile thinking about the dream I had just had. A few minutes later I decided to get out of bed. I then walked to the bathroom and decided to take a shower. I immediately felt that something was amiss. I always took a shower before bed, never in the morning. That realization seemed to plant some type of seed in my head. Before long that seed grew and I was able to control of every aspect, every little detail, of myself and of the world around me. I got out of the shower, got dressed and went to eat breakfast. Nothing exciting or strange at all. Except for the fact that the entire script was being written in my head. The set, characters, props, dialogue, everything. Like I was the director/actor of the lamest movie ever made. Though I can't recall many of the details, I do remember how it ended. Me, standing over the toilet urinating. I must have had to go real bad. I felt such a relief.... BAM! I was suddenly transported back to my bed and I was soaking wet.

I’d be kinda pissed if that’s what my rare lucid dream would be!

One thing I forgot to add to my experience was that I felt like I had the most refreshed feeling all day when I woke up, had ample energy, and just felt happy nothing I’ve ever had before.

Lolz, only to find out the princess's a blob. But oh well, at least the lizard won't be a problem anymore.

That's a really interesting story. I had read about tips to make one realizes he's in a dream; one was to look at hands, if they were kind of blurry, it means it is a dream.

Once I've realized I was dreaming, I did check my hand; and it was blurry. I couldn't determine any clear cut separation between my hand, and the rest of my sight. In fact, I would say most of my senses were something like 20% efficiency. As soon as I decided to test the dream, the landscape started to degrade. The more I was focusing on a particular aspect, there was less surroundings.

Was your dream kind of blurry? or did you had full access to your perception (at least didn't feel differences with "reality")?

I would advise caution, personally.

I think there is a lot more to lucid dreams than we currently understand, though I suppose my own experiences could be coincidence.

I used to lucid dream every night since I was a child, and experienced a great many things. I used it to explore the evolution of civilizations, I guess you could say. I had some experiences similar to yours, though I only had control wrestled from me once. Maybe twice. There were plenty of "battles" though, I guess you could call them.

The first time was actually cool and fascinating! The second "maybe" time.. Well, one day, I woke up after being unconscious for days with a severed femoral head (which doctors said looked like it had been broken for weeks), broken vertebrae, and some mystery bone metabolism disorder. It was diagnosed as a seizure "with many complications." Havent really dreamed since then (lucid or otherwise).. Maybe a dozen times in 10-15 years?

Is there a connection? Maybe, maybe not. Ive always felt that there was, but there are some holes in ye olde memory bank since then too. I miss dreaming, regardless.

Good luck out there, Dreamwalker

I can't relate on actual injuries after a dream. However I remember when I was younger, if I were injured in a dream (more often than not, fatal wounds), I would wake up with either a pain, or a sensation (like one time, cold) where I was hit.

I do believe there's some deep connections between the mind in dream state and the body. I didn't seek to lucid dream, it happened that this time, I actually realized the tower was off.

And it seems to go both ways; someone can call your name while sleeping, and you'll hear it in your dream, just like some events in dreams can affect the body.
