Hi I'm new here. I think I recently had my first two experiences in lucid dreaming. Let me share my initial experience. I remember dreaming about being with a person at a booth like from a restaurant and I remember hearing what sounded like my cellphone ringing.I then remember consciously thinking that my phone didn't actually ring and that I must be dreaming. Then I know I felt a very familiar phenomenon. I used to I binaural beats to achieve highs, usually unsuccessfully. However I always felt an odd sort of energy pulse over me and a sinking feeling. I felt that for short time and then consciencly tried to change the outcome to having sex with the person I was with (I know, I'm a perv.) I then felt like I was having sex, but had no visual. Very shortly after I experienced a false awakening, where I then told all of my roommates about the dream. My second experience isn't as "detailed." I remember thinking that what was happening wasn't reality and I again felt that sinking pulsy feeling, but this time I don't believe I made any decisions about what was happening. What do you think? Am I having lucid dreams, have any of you experienced the pulsing sinking feeling? Also, if I am infact lucid dreaming, how can I strengthen the effects of my decisions?
