I tried to control my lucid dreams when I was a around 14 or 16.
I was told one day by a friend, an older friend, he asked me if I wanted to fly.
I was like, what do you mean fly? He said, you know, like Superman, fly in the sky.
He explained to me that if I am able to control my dreams, I will be able to do anything I want. Create my own reality within my own dream world,
anything I think of could happen.
I really believed it, and practiced it every night.
Every night before I got to sleep, I did this for 3 weeks straight mind you. It was probably the 2nd week I had my very first semi-controlled
It was very weird, you just keep repeating in your mind before you fall asleep on the bed, that "You're sleeping right now, and you're about to
dream soon, you're in a dream, you're in a dream, you're in a dream...."
The first time it happened, I was in a city, at night time. I can't remember the vivid details, since it was many many moons ago. The constant repeat
of the same thought in my mind for 2 weeks finally paid off.
I was just standing there in my dream and had a sudden epiphany, like a sudden realization that I am dreaming right now.
Once I realized and accepted that I was in a dream, I looked for the nearest window and leaped out. I don't know why or how I was able to remember to
fly like Superman like my friend had suggested. Perhaps subconsciously I was already telling myself that you must fly if you're able to control your
In any case, the moment I fully accepted that this is a dream and not real, I found the nearest window and leaped out. Once I leaped out, I couldn't
believe it, I was really flying! I didn't fall immediately to the ground, but started to hover and glide over the city. I couldn't fly up though
like Superman, I was more like gliding and hovering down to the ground.
Before I was able to make a successful landing, I was awaken up by my own inner fear. For some reason, I started to think negative thoughts, about
monsters and what not and I was getting the distinct feeling that it's going to happen immediately as well. As in whatever the thing I was afraid of
the most, is going to come out. The I freaked and awoken abruptly.
Anyway, just my own personal experience in this area. I believe in it because I was able to do it, so I know for a fact that this has to do with
mental discipline and surely others can achieve it as well. But I suppose you will need to practice fear control during the waking hours, otherwise if
you cannot subconsciously control your worst fears, then I believe during a lucid dream, if you're given control of your dream reality, your worst
fears are most likely to manifest themselves without you intentionally allowing it to happen.
