Hey I'm pretty new around here but I do love lucid dreaming.
I have tried to "set up" my dreams beforehand with little success. The only true way for me to do it is to already be in a particularly vivid dream
and, without tripping my "wake up" reflex, I must face the fact that nothing is real and I can do whatever I want as long as a stay asleep. Still to
fully immerse myself, I have to focus very hard on not waking up. Sometimes I am still dreaming but I can perceive what is happening around me in
"real life" like still being able to hear things while asleep. This is usually the hardest part about staying asleep in a lucid dream. But if I am
having a very vivid dream n wake up, lucid or not, I can go back to sleep within a minute or two and jump right back in where i was. For me it is kind
of like the matrix in terms of changing the world around and making things appear where ever n when ever i want, not to mention unrealistically fast
accelerations where ever i want to go haha
Isn't it the worst when you're having a dream living the high life in paradise then wake up in a small town in kansas to canceled space programs and
a great depression? sometimes its tough.
Just thought I'd share all that.
