What Was The Vibration? How Can I Wake Up?


I just found this site and am glad I did. Recently I fell asleep like every night but this time something different happened. I was dreaming and knew I was dreaming. I was sitting at the table with my mom and thought to myself "this can't be right. I'm at home in my bed." my mother just sat there smiling and I told her that I thought I was dreaming and that I was going to see if my hand would go through her. Once my hand got close to touch her it slowly faded away and I started to panic because this was all new to me. And I had no idea what I was doing. Every time I started to panic I would tell myself to calm down. It's just a dream. That went on for a while. Once I stopped panicking I decided to try to float up but felt like I was going too fast and started panicking again. I also felt and heard myself vibrating. First it started in my chest then it was my entire body (the chest was the strongest). Is that normal? What is exactly happening? Also how do you wake yourself up from dreaming? While there I told myself to wake up a few times and I could feel my eyes trying to open but wouldn't. Eventually my mind listened and when it did I shot up so fast and my heart was racing. I also felt jittery! So here are my questions: Was I actually lucid dreaming? What is the vibrating that happens and is that normal? How do you wake yourself from a lucid dream? I am frightened and yet very excited about what happened to me. I'm not sure if it will ever happen again because that was not intentional at all, but now that it has happened I feel like I have to learn so much on this subject.

Hope this made some kind of sense!

The vibrations are part of the astral separation process though it's unusual to be aware of them during a lucid dream. We normally "sleep" through that process.

You were lucid dreaming but often lucid dreams are just disguised astral experiences.

Here's some good news and not such good news. The good news is that you used logic ("I'm dreaming so don't worry, let's do something cool like float") and the fact you even realized you were dreaming is significant. Some people go entire lives without ever questioning this! This is why most authors on the subject tell you to question whether you are dreaming while you are awake so you'll get used to asking.

The not so good news is that you let fear creep in and sabotage the experience. Like you said, you may or may not experience it again so each one is to be treasured. The only way to get over the fear is by educating yourself and doing this enough times that you realize you'll be okay.
