I have recently started my journey to lucid dreaming.
I've always had decent recall, and pretty in depth dreams. One thing i just learned recently was that my idea of lucid dreaming was wrong. I always figured a lucid dream was a dream where you felt like you were there, but i've found its a dream where you know your there and dreaming and take control.
I actually started my dream journal last week and have been doing a pretty good job. Some days i just can't recall, but i guess that just happens.
I'm in the same boat as the guy who posted above, when i become aware, i just wake up. I'll have to try the spinning.
I do notice, i am starting to grab the bull by the horns in my dreams. Generally in my dreams, someone is after me, or after my friends/family. Lots of times before, if i was in a bad situation, i would just become weak and useless, since i've started, i've been standing up, and getting physical, always winding up ontop and winning.
I feel this is a good sign.
As for abilities, i haven't really been able to maintain the lucid dreams without waking up.
I would like to know what powers/abilities you have in your lucid dreams, I hope to discover some new one's and so can all the other lucid dreamers by discussing it here. I find that I can induce things into my dream states by telling myself that I want to have them included as I am falling asleep.
