Lucidity

After a few weeks of actively trying to have a lucid dream, last night I succeeded. I've only ever had one lucid experience (that I could remember) and that was years ago. I think I've discovered that my lucid trigger is looking in a mirror and my confirmation is looking at my hands (I'd read that your hands always look weird when you look at them in a dream). I only had three fingers on each hand, like a Ninja Turtle. I was so excited when I realised I was lucid that I couldn't concentrate enough to make anything cool happen. I basically just walked around a strange house for a while looking at my hands and then I ran out onto the street. I tried making someone materialise, but it didn't work. I think I'll try something simpler next time, like flying. After a short while things started happening on their own, and before long I was back in an unconscious dream-state.

If you wanna read more about lucid dreaming and how to achieve it, check out this Everything2 node: click! There's lots of information there.

I can't wait to go to bed tonight.
