False Awakenings and Lucid Dreams
False awakenings are dreams that look like you just woke up.

It is actually common to experience them during the early morning hours. When this happens, you might think the dream is over and you just woke up, when you are actually in a new dream. These are usually very, very vivid, making them hard to notice.

What Do False Awakenings Feel Like?

Most false awakenings start out by getting up and out of bed and then starting your normal morning routine: breakfast, shower, going to work, etc. The dream takes on an identical look and feel to your real house and routine, making it extremely realistic!

They usually then end when you really wake up in bed and realize that all of it was just a dream. Though they are able to turn into a more frightening and even nightmarish situation.

Instead of having just one False Awakening, you can even experience multiple awakenings in a row. When this happens, it's like you just woke up and went about your day, and then you wake up in another dream, then wake up in another dream, and another dream...

These false awakenings can be very scary, and you soon lose a sense of what is real and what is not. Am I really awake or is this still just another dream? Am I forever trapped in this Groundhog Day nightmare? How do I get out of here?

How To Stop a False Awakening

Unlike most of your dreams, where strange and impossible things can occur, in false awakenings, everything almost always seem natural. Luckily, there's a simple way to know if you are dreaming or not. Do a reality check to turn your next realistic False Awakening dream into a Dream Induced Lucid Dream (DILD).

Reality checks

A reality check is where you do a test to see if you are awake or dreaming. These tests can also be done throughout the day to improve your awareness and help you have more lucid dreams.

Start a habit of doing a reality check every time you wake up in the morning. It's a simple process that takes just a few seconds, and it can save you from having a false awakening. Here's a few examples:

Look at your alarm clock. Notice the time it shows. Does it show the normal time you wake up? Does it show an odd time (1:15 am) or even an impossible time (13:37 FM)? Also, notice how the numbers are. Do they shift or change? Look away from the clock for a second, and then look back at it. Does it show the same time?

Look at your hands. Do you have 5 fingers? Try stretching one of your fingers out by pulling on it. Does it stretch out or look different?

Try to press your fingers through an object, like your nightstand or your leg. Do your fingers pass through it like you're a ghost, or do you get solid resistance?

Look in a mirror. Do you see your reflection? Does it actually look like you? Does anything change?

Ask yourself "Am I dreaming?" and actually analyze what happens when you do any reality check.

Of course, if you do these reality checks and get dreamlike or impossible results, you are definitely dreaming!! If you find that you are in a dream...congratulations! Have fun with your lucid dream! Just don't get too excited and lose the false awakening turned lucid dream!
