Yep, I've had those.. I think it relies on the depth of rem sleep we're in. Sometimes it's so light that we have easy control over it, but also
have the problem of shocking ourselves awake (from realising we're lucid) - you can control this.
But too deep, still being aware, we are still in the hypnagogic state that deprives us of real involvement while we feel aware.
I have had many lucid dreams, and I often feel as if I am adrift in the ocean (no matter my surroundings) in that I know what I want to do, and
struggle to do it, but the current of my dream drags me along regardless.
Makes for fun flying dreams... Whoah too high, OH NO, IM RUSHING TOWARD THE GROUND.. Ahh but let go of the fear, they are amazing....
I've never had a 100% controlled lucid dream.
well, I have in a sense, but I always get attacked by spiders in crab like shells that just are out to get me, or dogs with no faces and just gaping
wounds for a throat that gnaw at my hands as if they are eating me, or cats that only want to claw into me for no reason, while I become paralysed...
Not so fun...
