I can‘t remember how I got lucid, I just am. I am in my hometown. I remember that I wanted to ask some questions to the awareness behind the dream. In the first one I refer to a certain undertaking that I am planning (but that for some reason I am not starting to organize, although I want to do it).

Melanie SchädlichQuestions to the Awareness

I woke from a “Wow I’m flying!” dream, and thought ‘Why don’t I use flying as my clue to myself that I am dreaming so I can be lucid in the dream?’ When I fell back asleep, I realized that I was flying again, so I must be dreaming I thought.

I am in this house waiting for it to be morning and a certain time at which I believe I was supposed to go somewhere or do something. I look around the house, going past a first floor bathroom. Then I see this cute little bedroom I didn’t know existed. Apparently tacitly lucid, I consider how I could make it my bedroom and have my stuff magically transported but then I realize the room is too small for all my stuff. I lie down on the bed a bit.

A. DreamerFebruary 9 2002, Lucid in a Strange House

I am in a house somewhat like the one I grew up in. My mother and several male friends of mine are around; we watch various movies, go out to a restaurant for a meal and later return to the house. I go out into the driveway (it’s night now) and see that my car (a silver hatchback as in waking life) has been stripped down by someone to be a convertible.

Since the beginning of April I had been trying for a lucid dream, and this was my first vivid one. I was in a cave with my family and two of my old friends. We were getting a tour with a guide, and were visiting many rooms, which are filled with bats. We reached the deepest point you could go, and we entered into a tall chasm. There were mirrors along the side of the room, and I quickly sprinted away from the group and saw myself in the mirror. My features were very blurred, while everything around me seemed vivid. I nearly woke up that moment when it clicked: I’m dreaming!

I’m at a house that resembles my old house but it’s not exactly the same. I remember talking to my brother about the money he owes me. One of my close friends is there and me and my brother get into a mini argument about my money. He keeps dancing around the answer telling me his friend is handling it.

I dreamed that I was in a modern mall-like complex. There were lots of escalators in this confusing, labyrinthine space. I got lost and wound up on a train. The compartment was dimly lit and had a low wooden bench on one side. Opposite me was a huge, polished wooden statue of a Chinese warrior. He seemed to have a living spirit inside him.

I am in the countryside, in a house where on the bed there is someone covered in blankets. That person is not moving, yet eyes are wide open, in a glazed appearance, like a dead person. I get closer to the bed and to my astonishment I realise that the body lying there is me!

In the dream I found myself at the house I grew up in. My mom was there and since she no longer lived there I realized I was dreaming and became lucid. I then announced, “All dream characters disappear,” and, like so often after that declaration, I was met with an empty room.

After listening to REM enhancement, I was first in complete darkness while fighting to keep my eyes closed. After a while, I got comfortable and decided to let go. By this time, I was sure I was in a dream but as I tried to open my eyes prematurely, I woke but I didn‘t give up. I went back to sleep:

My first adult lucid dream happened in 1990. (I know this because of the place where I woke up, where I only lived for one year.) Preface: I have a doll phobia.
