The first time I actually turned an FA into an LD really opened up my eyes. I had been expecting something different from what I got. Now whenever I 'regain consciousness' during the night or morning I will slip my hand up and try to breathe through my fingers. You never know... sometimes they are consistent in what happens and sometimes they are so much like waking life that even the finger-nose trick doesn't work. I need to pay more attention... they are a valuable source for becoming lucid!

I had a weird FA yesterday morning...

I had it, so I woke up but was still actually dreaming. I started WILDing in my dream/FA and it worked. Had the flashes, the buzzing sounds, all the stuff.

The weird thing is that the transition was actually from dream to reality. After that WILD-in-dream, I woke up for real that time.


Note to self: NEVER forget to RC when you wake up.

I've been doing Chaining tech. in FA's. I wasnt doing it by any lucidicy. Most of the times, it worked;p I was findng myself in LD again. Unlucky, those LDs had low lucidicy level.

That's another useful thing, best way to avoid losing lucidicy while having FA.

BTW, i didnt had false akwening for long time eh. I really wonder why...

<mod>moved from "accepting Death" topic .. the topic referred to accepting a 'dream death' in a dream - so this post didn't fit there.
Since it mentioned FA, I moved it here moogle </mod>

I had a friend back in college who suffered this fate. His mom found him (dead) under the blankets already in rigor mortis. They got worried when he's still in bed and he will be late for class. He died in a position of extreme terror just like in the movies, his arms gripping the blanket to cover his eyes and froze in that position.

It is sometimes referred to as "Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome" and quite common in Asia.

I guess he was not able to scape (or wake up) to whatever it is that is terrifying him.

But I did woke up once in a nightmare. I dreamed I was dreaming while I was sleeping at work (graveyard shift) and I was actually sleeping at work but in the dream I was not sleeping in my usual spot (so it should have qualified for a dream sign!) but I did not remember what was the dream in the dream though I remember a false awakening. In the dream, I heared my boss's voice then I had a false awakening. I usually sleep in a row of chair so I'd be lying down and in that false awakening, I quickly sat up then bumped my head (in the dream) in my desk and this is when I had the real awakening ...or so I thought because I can't move, I know I'm really awake because my eyes are open and I can see the ceiling from where I usually sleep and not in the position from where I am in my dream. It was very scary, I cant even shout to get some help. It lasted for maybe 30 seconds before I was able to sit up.

It is the first time I have told this story and I want to be prepared if it that happen again so I'm really getting into LD.

It's just a scary thought, to die in your sleep and you cant do anything about it.

Nightmare on Elm Street maybe for real.

If you dream that you are having an FA, what is that?! lol. i had that once. It was like i was having an FA but was fully aware of the situation. I was trying to move to see what happened and just felt tingling.

<mod>moved into big FA topic moogle </mod>

FA's suck. Everytime I have one, they're creepier than a nightmare IMO. I usually can always tell if i'm dreaming or not, and lead that into a lucid dream, but then again I don't have as much control when bad thoughts creep in and I feel powerless and wake up.

I've turned quite a few into lucid dreams, but they don't last long, and often go into another FA. Never really had a creepy one, but I don't let those types of things bother me.

Most of my FAs are the same or will lead into SP with the ghost/shadow/spirit thing going on.

I like them though, I like being scared.

The best thing to do would be work on increasing your awareness and control in lucid dreams so that when they happen and you're lucid you can do something about the negative thoughts or simply wake yourself up.

Whenever I realize that I am dreaming I have a false awakening. Out of nine LD's only one did not follow this pattern. I've also had few non-lucid FA's and there was nothing creepy about them.

So I for one, welcome FA's colgate

My great uncle had a recurring FA where he would wake up and just lay there for a minute. Then a an arm would come out of the bottom of his bad and grab his arm really tight. It happened to him ALL the time. Really scared the crap out of him.
