David Saya – 10/11/08 “First Time” in Lucid Dreaming
I was with about four other friends at our local McDonalds in my small hometown. For whatever reason we were all running around the McDonalds building over and over, I can‘t exactly say what triggered my lucidity… all I know is for whatever reason I became lucid. [Once lucid,] I stopped and held my hands out in front of my face out of pure awe. My friends were no longer with me.
After looking at my hands, I turned and looked all around me… I then realized I was awake in my dream and I told myself, “This is a dream.” I was extremely excited over what was happening. I started to run as fast as I could and then suddenly woke up after about ten seconds of dream time. (end of dream).=
I had no idea what lucid dreaming was or that it was even something that could occur, until that dream made me aware of this ability and I immediately looked it up online to figure out what happened. No surprise that I learned it was called lucid dreaming, and ever since then I‘ve been obsessed in trying to achieve the same level of awareness in a dream.
