I had a strange dream last night. I've been thinking a lot about this subject recently and one of the things that I've consciously thought of was, "OK, if I can will myself to fly in a dream, why shouldn't I be able to will myself through the ground - like Buckaroo Banzai or Shadowcat from The X-Men?"
...So last night I'm dreaming and something clues me in on the fact that I'm dreaming. So I remember my conscious thought about trying to "phase" through the ground, and make an attempt. I fail. It just doesn't seem to work. What's interesting to note is that "I" am making dives at the dirt, and it's as solid as ever - yet it's not like I feel any pain. It's not like my physical self is attempting it either - I don't get on my knees and force my face into the ground - it's more like dream flying... I will myself at the ground but it stops me.
Also, though I realized I was dreaming and sort of took control - this didn't really feel like the other lucid dreams I had. I didn't really feel "in control", it felt more like I was still dreaming, and an element of the dream was that I realize I'm dreaming. Which doesn't surprise me at all, seeing as how much thought I've put into it along with reading threads like this here recently.
Another thing; when my attempts to go underground failed, I attempted to fly and wasn't able to. This also hints at this not having been an actual lucid dream.

I fall into that old wives tale catagory like, of waking before hitting the ground. I got close once, real close, and the shock made me wake quite suddenly, I cant say it was a very nice experience.
