Stupid Brain

I'm not sure how I became lucid but I was walking through a futuristic city filled with bright lights and interesting signs and sights. I was enjoying just looking around and felt no need to change the scene. Eventually, I decided to fly and launched myself into the air. I... sored around the city, taking sharp turns around the corner of buildings. Suddenly music started. It seemed to be coming from everywhere at the same time. I recognised it as my phone alarm and remembered that I was napping on the sofa before work. I cursed to myself and woke myself up, but found that I still had another fifteen minutes before the alarm went off. I also realised that the music wasn't my alarm song after all but was the song played for incoming calls.

Lucid Dreamer

First Lucid Dream

I have been practising reality checks for about two months with no success. Last night I was in my office and absent-mindedly performed a reality check by looking at the clock. I had no idea that I was dreaming, and when I looked back, it was a completely different time.... I still didn't believe it and checked again. The feeling of being in a lucid dream was so intense. I was so happy. I jumped into the air and floated above my desks. One of my co-workers raised her eyebrows at me and said nothing. The dream began to get grainy then and I woke up. But I felt invigorated by the experience for the entire day. I did it!

First Time in Space

I'm not sure exactly what happened but I found myself half in and half out of a dream. An orange room opened before me, and I was standing on the precipice. I decided to enter and I was walking through a corridor with walls of roughly hewn, orange stone. Thick... blues music filled the air. My hands were ephemeral, and I tried to focus on them; I shook my head. In my DILDs this lack of solidity was usually a precursor for the dream collapsing or me waking up. However, despite the transparency of my hands, the scene itself was unwavering, more so than I have experienced in any lucid dream before. Unable to see an exit of any kind, and not wanting to waste time, I decided to walk through the wall. I put my arm through first. It was hard and I had to push with all my strength. I reminded myself that there was no wall, that it was a projection of my own mind, and my right arm followed with ease and then my head. Doing this previously always resulted in a new scene. But this wall was thick. I passed through layer after layer. Suddenly, something propelled me upwards at a speed I have never experienced. I knew I could stop my ascent but I wanted to know where it would take me. I left the atmosphere, my stomach wrenching with the twists and turns but there was no fear. I laughed as constellations of cartoon animals flashed by. I have flown in DILDS many times but have always had a problem with heights. Every time I reached the upper stratosphere, my rational faculties kicked in, telling me that there was no longer any oxygen, and I would wake up. But not this time. The velocity slowly decreased and I hovered in deep space for a few seconds, surrounded and permeated with an intense peace. Then I began to fall. There was no fear, only interest, but then something screamed. It was bloodcurdling, and I felt terror but it was apart from me and I could examine it as such. I young girl, her face contorted with an insane blood-thirst leapt at my neck with her blacken teeth barred. I smiled and said, "hello". Her face transformed back to a normal girl and she faded into the kaleidoscopic blur of planets and stars. I found myself standing by an aeroplane on a floating rock. There was a shy looking lady doing maintenance. I asked her why she was there, and she replied that she was there to help me. I asked her what she wanted me to do, and she told me to put on an old WW1 type helmet. I sat in the aeroplane with a rudder between my legs looking down at a tiny Earth. Then I was back in bed. When I wake from DILDs it is accompanied by the grogginess of sleep, but not this time. I was completely awake and felt I had been bodily thrown on the bed rather than waking from sleep.
