To tie in with adding the Lucid dream astral projection technique, I’ve thought it good to talk about my first two lucid dreams. I was initially sceptical of lucid dreaming, as well as astral projection. Luckily, once you have a lucid dream, you can no longer doubt that they exist. My first lucid dreams are very memorable, not so much because of the content, but they were my first, and you never forget those! Hopefully reading these will inspire you if you haven’t had a lucid dream yet. Have you had a lucid dream? Be sure to comment about it below!
My first lucid dream was quite mundane. I can’t truly remember when it took place but it’d be between 2012 and 2013. I was home, finished form university and looking for a job. One tired night I had a dream I was back at my university town. This in itself was a reality check, I knew my time there was over. I was in the middle of the street, with nothing particularly noteworthy going on.
As soon as I realised this was a dream, I instantly got overexcited. heightened emotions like this can ruin a lucid dream, or an astral projection attempt. I managed to contain it for a while, but as this was my first lucid dream, I wanted to do something special. I was at one end of a very long street, so, what better thing to do than to try and fly as fast as I could to the other end?
It worked, sort of. I was tethered to the ground so I achieved more of a hovering motion. But there, I was essentially flying down the street. I stopped at a woman, fifty years or so old, and looked at her face. Everything seemed so normal. I woke up shortly after, happy with what I had achieved!
This hits a little more close to home. One of my classmates had killed themselves many years before this occurred. In my dream, I was at another old friends house, and I saw her. This formed the reality check, I knew she wasn’t alive any more. We had a conversation, which I won’t go into detail about, but I was lucid throughout. No fancy acrobatics, no defying gravity. Just a chat in a dark room with a dead classmate.
The big difference between this and the first experience is the method of induction. The first experience happened when I was tired and recovering from a seasonal illness, if I recall correctly. The second just happened spontaneously.
