I don't remember my first lucid experience, I think it must be around the time I started to try flying. Years ago. It was really difficult at first
and took a couple of years just to get off the ground, but now I can fly whenever I try to.
Because I want to use my ability to lucid dream in a reliable way, I'm trying out some basic techniques to gain more control. Lately I've been
deliberately trying to focus my attention of aspects of a lucid dream. I've also been practicing becoming aware as I fall asleep and begin to dream,
which is not difficult, but this awareness wakes me up. I'm working on staying with it so I can remain aware through the REM stage.
