Lucid dreaming is quite simply that. Being aware you’re in a dream at the moment. Sometimes you can be fully functioning and adapt the dream, other times you know but still go with the theme of the dream already in place.
My first lucid dream was in our old house that we had all the experiences in. It was during the time of seeing spirits around my bed, bc in the dream I was standing on our back deck.
This witch appeared and started coming from the back woods towards the house. Face pointed downwards, but she was glaring at me with a sinister grin on her face. She was moving fast too. Floating just above the ground.
I ran down the hall to my sister’s room, where she was sitting at the foot of her bed, and asked me what I was doing, having ran in, in a mad panic. That’s when I became aware I was dreaming.
I realised in that moment, I needed to wake my ass up, and fast, bc the witch would be there any second. I ran over to sit cross legged on the floor between my sister on her bed, and her closet, and just started shaking my head back and forth screaming, “Wake up!” Over and over again. All I could hear was my sister asking me why I was doing that, and then boom! I woke up.
Didn’t happen again until my early 30’s, when I was trying to find my friend Steve. It was the end of the world, and I needed to be with him when it happened. First I had to do something, but as per usual, every time I’d be on my way to doing whatever it was, someone I knew would stop me and ask me for help. This is how I became aware what was going on., bc this is typical in my dreams. I was finally content with not doing whatever I had set out to do, and was on my way back to Steve when I woke up.
For as long as I can remember I have always had reoccurring dreams. There’s a bulk of them that seem to happen basically the same way. Started with the house blowing up, which I mentioned when I was little, then there are the elevator dreams. There are two. One, I am in a hotel like structure going to different rooms and riding the elevator to different floors. The second, I am at a mall where I ride this glass elevator up to the 600 and some floor and end up having to walk along a suspended plank to get to a deck space that is all wide open with no walls or anything, and I am terrified bc it’s so windy.
I also dream of two other malls randomly, depending on what I am doing in the dreams, I also have reoccurring dreams of being in a church or house wih a demon or exorcist like being in it. As well as dreams with shoot outs. All of a sudden these gang members, mafia, whomever enter the public place I am in, and start shooting up the place. We shoot back, but the bullets float so slowly through the air, by the time it hits one of them, it just bings off them. So I have to wait for my gun to regroup itself for me to try again lol. Very bizarre bc this one tends to repeat itself more than once in the same night. There are many others, but I don’t generally remember them until I have them.
I’ll talk more about dream visitations from spirits and past pets during my dreams, as well as astral travel in another post, but there are still more guides to meet first!
