Strange LDs
PostPosted: Mon 21 Feb, 2011  Reply with quote

So these past two nights, something weird has happened. I become "lucid", simply saying that I know that I am dreaming, but I have no control of my dreams whatsoever. I'm not sure if this is "false lucidity" or simply my inexperience showing.
And excerpt from my DJ, last night:
Quote:
This morning I woke up early, but turns out we got snowed in. I was really excited--what a perfect time to try a WILD! It was extremely easy to relax, considering I had hardly moved and was still exhausted. I got pretty far, even to the point where I couldn't feel anything in my body and I couldn't move at all. My mind started to drift, but in the good, dreamy kind of way. I thought this is it! and could scarcely contain my excitement. My dream: All I remember is a castle and a prince standing in front of me. I was still half awake, but I kept telling myself I was dreaming. I did an RC and my hands were swirly. There, thats proof I said, but I STILL did not have control of my dream. I was getting really mad so I woke myself up. I started over and did exactly the same thing, except instead of a castle it was an Island. I wanted to fly, but I couldn't move. I was so frustrated I woke up again.

You can read the other dreams here. Thanks for your help!

I'm guessing it's your frustration, and excitement. If your emotions are too strong, it may hinder all your lucid abilities. You knew it was a dream, so it was definitely lucid. Just try to calm yourself next time.


Current LD goal(s): Visit that ball of plasma in the sky. Yup, the Sun.

Thanks for the reply!
Yeah, I guess I always thought that. It seems so hard for me to control emotions in dreams. I'm trying to work on that.

You shouldn't become frustrated if you find that you haven't much control. It's normal to experience difficulty when trying to control a dream.
Now, the paralysis you had on the island might have just been residual SP finding its way into your dream. It's important to be patient when that happens, and to immerse yourself in the dream to try and flush out the SP. If the paralysis persists, I've found it helpful in the past to simply exert my will over the situation and affirm that I'm dreaming.

I had a similar experience last night, except I tried to stay calm. And it was working! Thanks! I just kept hearing household noises (mainly my dog barking) so I never really got fully into the dream, I kept waking up.
