I layed down to sleep the other night while fairly drunk and perfectly stoned so that when I closed my eyes I could feel the sleep coming. I know this is the perfect opportunity for lucid dreaming.
The trick to maintaining your waking awareness while entering dream space is to start to visualize the dream without and move your consciousness seamlessly into that realm. Eyes closed, all I coud see was black. I thought a good exercise would be to try to move my dream arm into view. I managed to see my right arm enter my visual field and it was covered in gold and silver armor, my left hand followed quickly, I began changing the colors of the armor then morphed it into scales so I had lizard arms. Then I started changing the backgrounds from calidoscopic patterns to interstellar space, before I could achieve movement through the space I heard an alien voice hiss my name that seemed outside of my head. Like a person in my room had spoken to me. I awoke, heart racing, wondering if I had contacted reptile Satan. What if I almost went too far into my own mind and I stopped myself? That makes more sense now doesn't it?
