If you have been following my blog, you know that for the last month I have been trying to teach myself how to have a lucid dream. Which is the ability to control your subconscious and manipulate the dream anyway you want. When I started this assignment I really didn't think I would find much. I thought lucid dreaming was just an extreme exaggeration of a day dream. My opinion on lucid dreaming changed a few nights ago when I finally had my first lucid dream. I am just now talking about my lucid dream because I was so surprised and shocked that it took a few days for me to even accept that fact that I did have a lucid dream. It took me a few days of thinking it over and over to make sure that it was in fact a lucid dream. After I had thought over my dream time and time again I had to accept that I have had my first lucid dream. I was truly blown away.
My lucid dream was very odd. The dream was actually a nightmare. I was being chased by monster that looked like some type of werewolf. As I was being chased and hiding from this creature something hits me that this thing really cant hurt me. Suddenly all the fear I had was gone. As the creature got close to me I held my ground and didn't run. Instead I put a giant wall in between us. As the dream went on I was actually toying with the creature by letting him get close to me, then changing the environment around me so he couldn't actually get to me. Also all that fear that I had at the beginning is now replaced with amusement. I was like a child playing with my new toy. Since this was my first time in a lucid dream I really didn't know what to do with it. I never really tested the boundaries of my dream. I also never really attempted to get full control of my dream but could change little things with ease.
All in all I am very excited that I have had my first lucid dream but at the same time I was scared to admit it because I does make me sound somewhat crazy. But I have found out that I can in fact have a lucid dream and it is very possible. Now my goals for the last week is to push the boundaries of my dreams if I am able to have another lucid dream.
