Astral and Lucid Dreamers


Can anybody tell me if what I had today was a lucid dream? Because I would like to have them again.

Throughout my whole dream, I saw everything from my point of view, even when it was someon else telling me their story- I saw it as though I were him. Anyway, these are just the possibly lucid parts of my dream. They both involved my crushes.

I passed by one guy I liked and he came up to me and asked me to hang out with him. I said "I want to be with you, but I can see you're busy." I remember I acted in controland confident, knowing I'm making him want me. He asked me to wait for his thing to be over. That's when I said "that's why I love dreams, you can say and do whatever you want to, and whatever you want to happen happens." I know I said this because in my dream my crush actually liked me back, and I said something with so much confidence, like I probably never would say in real life.

I passed by this other guy I liked later on. I think we were flirting and then I just held my hand out. I know I did this with confidence, and I knew he would take my hand. And just like that we were walking and holding hands. I remember thinking- 'I wish relationships could be this simple in real life'.

So if I know I said things like "I love dreams because..." and "I wish this would happen in real life", does this mean I know I was dreaming and controlling m actions in my dream?

When I read the part: "I remember thinking- 'I wish relationships could be this simple in real life'"- [that's when I was sure what you experienced was a lucid dream]. [I'm used to saying, "when I wake up, I should write this down"] then I pay special attention to what is being said, and what is going on in the dream, plus of course I make decisions also, for example, I'll decide to take a left turn, instead of a right.

IMHO, if you are not sure, that you had a lucid dream, it means - you really didn't.
Especially, if you never had lucid dreams before, you 'll never miss it! Lucid dreams have special energy, if you have it - you know it for sure, no doubt! You never need other people to tell you, if it really was a lucid dream.

Anyway, nothing to worry about in your case. Considering, what you wrote about your dream, you are really close - your dreaming body is already making jokes, putting in a dream remarks/thoughts with special hints for your awareness.
Keep it going and good luck!

Thanks, I think you're right- I only felt in control in some parts of the dream. Do you think you can have like half lucid dreams? lol
