I had a normal dream and I woke up.
I walked to the bathroom, washed my face looking myself at the mirror.
"I'd wasted whole days thinking of lucid-dreaming-and-stuff and my real life's at stake. Heck, my dream recall has developed a lot and I remember 2-3 dreams every day- making it all the more difficult to keep my mind off it. But thisis it. I'm going to focus entirely on my real life from now, good bye to lucid dreaming... I WON'T TRY TO LUCID DREAM-- EVER!"--I said to myself, and went back to sleep.
What I didn't know was that I was gonna have my first real, sustained lucid dream in a few minutes.
I was at back at my highschool, but all the students in the class seemed to be from my current institute. Well it didn't seem strange to me then. In fact I had this beautiful girl sitting beside me on my bench, how could I pay attention to anything else? I had a little chat with her, but she arose in the middle of it and walked to the class podium and began delivering some speech, probably part of some assignment. As she was about to complete it and return to me, I noticed something strange- I had no clothes on! I began to panic and search for my clothes.. thankfully they were at the bottom of my desk. But before I began to put them on, I thought- "Strange... things like this happen only in dreams." And then I realised that it was all just a dream.
How could I be sure? I wanted to do reality checks, but I was afraid if the dream would end too soon. So I improvised- I punched a friend who sat in the next row at his head, and his head oscillated to-and-fro. Had it been real life, the guy(pretty muscular himself) would have got up and busted me right away. He didn't... Yay!
I didn't know what to do, so I began walking accross the class to meet people... until things began to fade. Rubbing my hands came like reflex to me(although I had not tried it before), but the dream was prolonged to just a few seconds. Finally I decided to spin my dream body. Amidst all the spinning, I felt a sharp knife-like object thrust into my belly and it really hurt. But soon I landed at some other place. The 'landing' was how the hero would teleport in the movie Jumper-- me like it!
I was in my old bedroom. Back in another 'building', restricting me from doing things like flying. But with all the confidence in the world I prepared to leap skyward, and for a moment it seemed I could really do it... but I closed my eyes then, and woke up, stayed paralyzed for a few secs, and then the whole of me woke up.
I learnt a few things from this experience- if I close my eyes in a dream, chances are I would wake up. And the Placebo effect is legit. And if I'm naked when people are around, it's dream :-)
Best of all, I understood what it's like to be in a lucid dream- you could be free of those chains and do whatever you want with no consequence whatsoever. It's a highly exhilarating and wonderful experience. You got to try it.
