The Most Frustrating Lucid Dream I’ve Had (After I Woke Up)

I’ve been trying to have a lucid dream for a while now, and it’s been so frustrating to constantly wake up thinking that I should have known that I was dreaming.  The other night, I was finally able to realize that I was dreaming and become lucid, and after a brief moment of fun, I asked for guidance in life. I got the guidance I needed, but it all fell apart when I woke up.

What Caused Me To Become Lucid In My Dream

I was trying to call my husband on the phone, and I couldn’t figure out how to dial his number. This happens to me a TON in my dreams, and I’m always pissed off when I wake up and know that I didn’t realize I was dreaming.

I mentioned to someone in the dream that this normally happens when I dream, and then I decided to check to see if I was dreaming.

I flipped my hand back and forth and it stayed the same, but thankfully I decided that sometimes my reality check with my hand doesn’t work, so I tried to focus on something smaller. I focused on a red spot on my nail and flipped my hand back and forth and sure enough, the little red spot moved slightly, so I knew I was dreaming.

I Tried To Make Everyone Sing In My Lucid Dream

I quickly decided to control everyone in my dream by breaking out in song. I started singing, “Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus…” and then I pointed to get everyone in my dream to sing. Only nobody sang!

I checked my fingernail again, and, yes, I was still dreaming.

I tried again and this time everyone followed suit with, “… right down Santa Claus lane.”

I was pretty impressed with myself.

I Decided To Put My Lucid Dream Plan Into Place

Then I decided that I should do something more constructive, so I quickly called out ‘Guidance now!’ Calling out for guidance has been my lucid dream plan for a long time now.

Suddenly I saw two men walking towards me. I seemed to know one of them and gave them a hug and we talked and laughed, and then I asked for some guidance on how to move forward. The other guy started to draw out this plan for me.

It started with three squares at the top of a piece of paper. It looked like this to me.

He filled in the squares and talked about things, and I nodded with understanding.

But, when I woke up, all I could remember were the squares. I couldn’t remember what he wrote in them, what he said, or even what he looked like.

Maybe I’m Not Meant To Know The Plan?

I tried everything to remember the lucid dream for guidance. I rolled back into the position I had been in when I had the dream. I played through the dream again from the beginning. I tried to fall back into the lucid dream. But nothing worked. I couldn’t remember what he wrote in those squares or what he talked about.

It’s possible I’m not meant to know consciously what he wrote in there. Maybe my inner self knows what he said and I’m going to go forward with the plan he put in place.

That doesn’t change the fact that it’s beyond frustrating to finally have the lucid dream you’ve been wanting to have and then not be able to remember the important stuff from it.
