Finally I have a Lucid dream to call my own
I would never have guessed that accounting would be the reason for my first proper Lucid dream
I am sitting in a classroom at my old school (Near the back against the "East" wall), taking an accounting test. I write all the answers in a blank exercise book but for some reason leave lots of pages open between questions. This leaves me trying to cram the last question onto the back page. When I'm about 3/4 done with the question I decide to stop writing because I've had enough of the whole test.
My old accounting teacher now hands out fold-out pamphlets that have something to do with accontancy to everyone before the class ends. I feel slightly depressed about the glorified optimism of life the paphlet is trying to promote in comparrison to my own perspective of life. As I get up to leave M, who was sitting on my left, says something to me which makes me feel much better because she usually ignores me and I am excited about speaking to her. Now halfway to the door I suddenly realize that I am dreaming [An internal sense, with no dream signs or logical conclusions]. M is ahead of me now and has changed into a short asian girl. I turn her around and hug her with the intention of stealing a kiss. I change my mind though, and instead focus of turning her back to into M (which works but feels unstable) and picking her off her feet I twirl her around as I feel like dancing.
Forgetting about everyone else I walk into the corridor with the idea of flying away [The corridor is on the second level looking out on a narrow courtyard below] . I notice that the dream feels a little bland (non-vivid) and remebering some advice from EWOLD I listen to the sounds around me to ground myself more firmly in the dream. I can hear people chattering in the corridor behind me, so feeling satisfied I now focus on rubbing my hands together to highten my sense of touch. I notice that I can't feel the weight of my feet on the ground and walking around does not improve this. I decide it isn't that important and on an impulse I grab a set of keys from the classroom door (thinking I can morph them into something else later on).
I take a short running jump to get myself airborn but find all it accomplishes is getting me stuck, suspended, in midair [I think this has something to do with not feeling my feet] . Feeling elated about my first proper lucid I wonder if I can wake myself up... and do so.
Now I'm wondering, what lucid challenges have I accomplished with this? I guess its a Morph-person but I don't think the flying quite worked and I wasn't really paying attention to what my hands actually looked like.
Also... does the blue/red/teal colour scheme work or would the lucid segments look better with something else?
