I'm not sure if there is a spectrum for lucid dreaming but I feel I had a 'not quite lucid' lucid dream a few years ago. I had been out the night before drinking heavily and had ended up sleeping on a friend’s couch. Early the next morning he woke me and told me he'd give me a lift home. Once I got home I went straight to my couch and passed out. I suppose this was an impromptu WBTB experiment.
Moments later I 'woke up' in my living room. It was the same time of day, same lighting. I was in the same clothes etc. But now there was a small gathering of people in my house quietly chatting with each other with drinks in their hands. I sat up and thought, “How did all these people get in? Did I bring them back with me?”
I stood up and walked to the kitchen. There were a few people in there too and I thought to myself, “Is this a dream?” I decided to do the old pinch test and pinched my arm, it did nothing. I felt the pain and concluded I was not dreaming and woke up. The dream was so real that I was convinced it was real life.
Your lucid dreams can educate and inform others about the joy, potential and practice of lucid dreams. Plus, you get to see your lucid dream printed in a lucid dream magazine!
