Okay, so i have a lucid dream every now and then. Well, when i have them, if its a "true" lucid dream, i had this problem - Id make a person, object, etc. appear and afterwards it will just dissapear for some reason. When making something appear, i concentrate (or so in my dream anyhow) and it works.

Whats also strange is im nearly always pretty close to my house (in the yard).

Otherwise, its fun, but im having a bit of difficulty with keeping things in the dream and not just dissapearing??

I lose stuff I make alot too. It seems like if I ever create anything elaborate enough to be really interesting, it turns out to be more work (trying to focus and keep the illusion going) that if I just try to enjoy it feels like it will be lost or go away, and it usually does.

I notice that alot of my dreams take place at my house too, the house is always different, usually bigger... but it is understood to be my house in the dream.

Anyway, I don't try to make elaborate things (such as people) in my dream anymore, I really find that to make something out of nothing just takes alot out of me, this could make me wake up soon after and be unable to hold the dream.

Lately I have been trying to really simplify things when I go lucid so that I can have a starting point of control. Last time I tried this I went to a black area with nothing in it. If it is hard to control it creating things, this was impossible to stand, it was like an extreme bored feeling because I know I can theoretically do anything in a lucid dream, and I was doing nothing! I woke up soon after that... Was five days ago, hoping my next lucid dream is soon!

Just wanted to let you know that it is sometimes hard to keep something I create going too, and the more elaborate it is, the more difficult it is to keep up. If I start to just watch it I lose control, if I really focus and keep it going I am just sitting
there creating something I can't really sit back and enjoy!

I have a question for you, do you keep a dream journal?

Exactly! Just as an example, i created a scoped rifle once, and it was floating for some weird reason, but just as i tried to let that set there and do something else at the same time, it dissapeared and i woke up not to long afterwards. It kinda reminds me of a computer with low memory, you cant keep things in it long before it is lost.

I dont keep a dream journal (as of yet), but i plan on it, because lucid dreaming is just so fun.

I guess nobody is posting because talking about your dreams impedes your progress? I don't know I would think alot of people have something to talk about with Lucid dreams. Anyway I have kept a journal for almost a month now, it helps a lot with dream recall, but I don't find it helping me go Lucid any more than I normally would.. (which seems to be once or twice a month at best, even though I thnik about it before sleeping every night).

I usually enjoy recalling my dreams but some mornings I really don't feel like writing a journal entry, and thats fine I don't make myself write when I don't feel like it.

One reason I'm in love with the idea of lucid dreaming is because it happens while you are asleep, what else can you do while actually sleeping, haha. But it takes time to write in a journal, and read up on lucid dreaming. I am just starting to think that you can't just work on lucid dreaming in your sleep, you have to study it.. So I'm sort of just going through the motions lately, didn't write in the journal today, haha. I'm wondering do you eventually reach a point where you don't have to spend so much time studying, and can just recall your dreams without all these excersizes of study and journal writing?

Also sometimes a regular dream, without any control or lucidity, is interesting enough as is, so I don't know.. I guess I have fun with it, as long as I don't take it too seriously.

My understanding of a lucid dream is being completely aware you are asleep lying in your bed and are in the process of dreaming. I have done this roughly 4 or 5 times now in the past 6 years or so. You can hear everything in the room just like you were lying there wide awake with your eyes shut, yet your completely in a dream state that is much MUCH more vivid then any other dream and you can control and create things at will.

One of the scary aspects of lucid dreaming in my experiences is an occasional feeling of becoming disconnected to your body and pulled away into the darkness with nothing but a thin luminescent "tether" extending from your abdomen that stretches thinner and thinner the further away you get. I always panic and snap awake when I really should try to relax and go with it. I guess I am afraid if the tether snaps I will die and never return.... *shrug* I dunno... weird stuff for sure.
