This piece was inspired by my first lucid dream I had when I was 16-17. I was having a lot of sleep apnea and sleep paralysis during this time but did not understand what I was experiencing. I thought I was ill or had a mental disorder for a while.
I remember this lucid dream was triggered after a moment of sleep paralysis.
I was suddenly running up a hill when I noticed I was dreaming. I was in a Japanese landscape very similar to the style of the video game Okami.
So I was running up this hill and decided to jump once I hit the top, I was falling off a cliff for a long time and was scanning the landscape. I couldn’t believe the detail or the feeling of freedom I was experiencing. I could feel the warmth from the sun and could control the direction of the wind with my mind.
This was the lucid dream that started everything for me, but I still did not know what was happening to me, it wasn’t until a year or two later when I described the experiences to my girlfriend, she said it sounded like lucid dreaming, after some research I was amazed to discover it was possible to induce lucid dreams at will.
