Chris Bakewell – My First Lucid Dream in Lucid Dreaming


I was at the Doctor’s in my dream and the Doctor was talking to me about the tablets I’m on but he kept repeating himself. At this point, I realised I was dreaming and the first thing I wanted to do was fly, so I looked at the window and decided to jump straight through it.


As I ran to the window I had a doubt and said to myself, ‘Are you sure? If you aint this will hurt!’ This caused me to bang into the glass and I actually felt the sensation of hitting the glass. But I was sure it was a dream so to be safe I decided to just float to the ceiling which I did and then I flew triumphantly out the window.


Outside I flew around, and in the distance I could see a cliff with faces on it and water running down it. It looked like something from another world. It was beautiful but I was also a little scared looking at it. I had a false awakening and then I woke up properly with a smile on my face. I couldn’t believe how real and bright things were in the dream.


This was my first lucid dream which I had after reading Robert Waggoner’s book. It was just a spontaneous thing – I never tried for one and I thought, ‘My god! Its so easy to have one! I’m gonna have them all the time!’


Alas this was 2 months ago and I’ve only had one more lucid dream, but it was something I will try to do now. There is so much I want to try in my lucid dreams and I can’t believe I didn’t know about this till now. I’m 40 years old.
