Good day to you =). I was looking back through my dream log (XD I know it sounds ridiculous, but I have a tendency to forget things easily, I came across a dream; I guess you could call it that. I would like to get a better understanding of the term lucid dream, I would also appreciate it if someone could tell me if this is a form of a lucid dream:
This dream started a few hours after I fell asleep. I was in the back yard walking. It was night time and everything seemed normal, aside from the point that there was a yellow and orange or reddish jumper in the back yard. I spotted one of my classmates. I knew there were people there but I was only able to see her and some other shadowy figures. One shadowy figure looked like another one of my classmate, the other girl's close friend. All of a sudden my dream faded from me and I was in the dark. I could tell I was dreaming from the start of my dream, I was also aware that I was in my room, I don't know how to explain it but I could tell more or less where and how I was positioned (I guess it would be considered body posture). I was lying down but could not open my eyes let alone move. I was frozen as if in terror and I could hear incoherent talking, they were like very loud whispers but I couldn't understand what they were saying or where they were coming from; there was also the sound of wings flapping. The wings were flapping close to my ear as if the birds were there. The incoherent speaking, the flapping wings, and what sounded like birds, more specifically crows had me trying to force myself awake. I had to force myself to open my eyes and from there I had to slowly begin to move the rest of my body.
These kinds of dreams happen randomly and so far I haven't had any during this month. Lately when these types of dreams occur I tend to feel some thing like pressure on different parts of my body (ex: sometimes my arms or legs occasionally my rib cages and most recently my face) I find when I wake that I was not lying on that body part as I tend to sleep facing up. The pressure is kind of tingly I guess you could say.
Thank you for reading through my story. I hope that I didn't bore you guys too much. If anyone can answer my two questions it would be very appreciated. =D and again thank you.
I believe the crows came to take you out of your dark place. The flapping of the wings woke you up. Crows are good that way. They saved me once too.
It was about 5am and I was sleeping in my tent at my camp site. I woke up to the sound of loud flapping wings and screeches. There was a giant spider in the tent that was just above my head. It was very large and all black. I ran out of the tent and saw the crows on top of the tent trying to get at the spider by flapping their wings against the tent. The spider fell to the floor of the tent and walked out of it and towards the creek. The crows left soon after that. Hope this helps.
