Lucid Intent? Yes Lucid Technique: WBTB

After sleeping badly most of the night, my last dream, around 8:30 in the morning, starts out with confusion -- children that don't exist are combinations of cousins when they were little, I shout out how much a little girl that's one of these combinations looks like A__ when she was little, and other dream memory nonsense.
Suddenly the room is empty and I become very lucid. I float up to ceiling. At first I feel the impulse to be afraid, knowing the room is haunted. But I fight the frightened feelings and try to be open-minded to whatever's going to happen.
My head passes halfway up through the ceiling and I begin to rotate in place. I suddenly feel very joyful and not afraid at all. I'm aware of a presence now, and I finally recognize her.
"B____!" I exclaim out her name. It's my aunt's sister (my aunt and her sister are both deceased in real life, as well as my uncle, who was my mother's brother). "Know that M___ and P___ and their girls (P___ was B's sister) all love you and miss you VERY much," I say in complete confidence.
With that, everything in the room begins to rotate through everything else -- the hands on a couple of clocks rotate through the faces, furniture rotates through the walls, and the whole room begins flying high above a typical old New England Main Street at a high speed (they used to live up in Maine, while B___ lived in Florida).
I feel happy for Betty, I feel like I've accomplished something by bringing her this message. The haunted feeling is completely gone, there's only joy in the air.
L___ (one of P___'s daughters) appears momentarily, how she looked after her first bout with chemo.
"Oh my god," I say to myself, "I forgot, she's dead, too!"
I only have time to note that she looks healthy and happy before I wake up.
And then it occurs to me ... B___ spent the last 50 years of her life in a feud with her sister's family! I forgot all about that during the dream. But the experience still seems so valid to me, even though most of the day has gone by now.
