First off, you are not crazy, lucid dreaming is a real thing for enough people to be considered having some merit.
As an adult I seldom have lucid dreams anymore, but I do remember the few I've had, and had a few good suggestions that help determine if you're going
lucid, and to help initiate it.
I was told to listen for your name, esp your FULL name in your dream, this is indication you are going lucid. I was told to study my hands carefully
for several minutes before bed, and to meditate on my intention, and will some "lucidness" into my dream.
I tried all the above a few years back and had the most amazing dream of my life. I was fully aware I was dreaming and took 100% control, and first
began by levitating, then full on superman mode, racing speeding trains through cities of polished marble temples. I did NO harm in that dream, and
felt amazing when i awoke.
I have had failed lucid dreams that went material or sexual in nature, and of course they left me ultimately confused.
One of the funniest lucid dreams I had was sexual. In it I was at a party with coworkers, and a porn star showed up and started hitting on me, it led
to her wanting to take me home. But I stated, "we better do this fast, because this is a DREAM" and then my alarm went off and I awoke. If I didn't
have a sense of humor I would have been frustrated for years!! LOL
I haven't been lucid in years but look forward to trying to get back into it, since it's one of the best inspirations for doing creative work. Your
dreams in general tell you a lot about who you are (hopes/fears/wishes/anxieties), and if you can stand back you can figure out what some of those are
From my reoccurring and lucid dreams and I can tell you I have a healthy fear of open waters, insane heights, and losing control.
