I've been making some progress. Following my first lucid dream of my adulthood 2 days ago I had several more this morning. I actually lost count as some were quite short and I also remember trying to become lucid in other dreams and not being able to. I went from dream to dream and my lucidity came and went. At some point I woke up at least I think I did, I've been having trouble with false awakenings since I haven't gotten in the habit of doing an RC straight away plus I don't want to move if I have a chance of getting back in the dream.
I'm hoping someone who has more experience with WILDs can tell me if there's a big difference between doing it in a false awakening and doing it for real.
Another thing I want to add is during one of these awakenings I had a double image where I could see my bedroom and the dream at the same time.
So I remember just lying in bed, not wanting to move or open my eyes again because it was starting to get bright out. I can usually tell if I'm awake because my eyes have this heavy feeling but I can never be 100% sure.
My focus drifts in and out and it feels like I'm falling back to sleep but I've had a string of lucid dreams already the same morning so I was getting used to feeling. At some point I could feel my consciousness separate from my body, hard to explain but I could feel myself lying in bed AND feel my legs and arms moving around at the same time. I was trying to focus on my 'dream' body to sit up. I tried to imagine a rope or handle above me to pull me up I reached but I couldn't grab anything. Then I just bent my knees and my feet went through the bed and hit the floor. I managed to stand up then and I leaned forward and started to freefall. I ended up in another lucid dream. It felt more vivid than the others at the time as if this dream was in 4k and the rest were 1080p. But I had heard that WILDs were supposed to be better so I could have just imagined it. I also woke up for real shortly after and I thought WILDs were longer and more stable. Was this really a WILD or did I just go lucid in another dream?
