Every night I fight demons, ninjas, vampires, devils, MIB, evil Dominican Monks, swashbuckling pirates, dragons, zombies and far stranger things by
the hordes in my dreams.
Most of my lucid dreams I can't tell if I am dreaming or awake. I'll slave a long day at work and pull into my driveway to catch a glimpse of
shadows out of the corner of my eye skirting across the rooftop of my house. I unlock the front door, go inside and find myself ambushed by a group of
ninjas sent to assassinate me. At that point I realize its a dream (because hopefully no one has a reason to send a group of ninjas to kill me irl)
and I let loose, pulling a sword out of nowhere and doing moves that would make Jackie Chan proud.
In your dreams you can do anything. You can throw down demons to the great Abyss they spawned from, or send devils screaming back to the Nine Hells,
or smite a dragon as if you were St. George (or the Archangel Michael), or you can exorcise the possessed.
When you passively accept what is happening in your dream then your unconscious mind is simply processing what has been on your conscious mind
throughout the day and maybe, just maybe trying to tell you something. However, when you actively take part in your dreams, you begin having an active
rapport between your unconscious and conscious minds and your dreams can be far more productive (and entertaining).
My daughter was born having horrific nightmares and by the time she was five she finally learned how to start controlling them. The demons that
plagued her dreams now are fodder for the slaughter...and her self-confidence is now unshakable.

The monsters are real but they're not in your dreams
Learn what you can from the beasts you defeat,
You'll need it for some of the people you meet"
