Anonymous: I've been trying to lucid dream. I had the strangest dream last night where I was standing in a kitchen, and I realized I was dreaming, but I didn't know what to do so everything got extremely heavy like my arms felt like a million pounds and the room began melting. Then, the next thing I remember is a non lucid dream when I was in a jacuzzi with people. Just wondering, is it normal to get heavy in dreams? This has happened to me several times before!
Hmm good question! I don’t think it’s normal to get heavy after you become lucid. Usually things happen in dreams to awaken you to the fact that you’re dreaming (or so I theorize).
But the heaviness probably happens because you’re losing lucidity.. In that case the heaviness is completely normal.. But if it’s like you say and the heaviness started when you were unsure then I’m not sure why that is.. There is also the possibility that you’re new to lucid dreaming. If you’re new then the dreams may not last as long and this may be how they end.
