lucid dreaming question - can you gain any real life skill while lucid dreaming since it is so real?. For example, if you lucid dreamed and continued to play hockey all night, would it increase your skill and ability for next time you played in the physical world?

Check fossets and light switches. They don't work when you are dreaming. Best way to figure it out.
I don't know where this comes from, but the faucets in my dreams have typically worked fine, I don't have any light switch interactions that I can recall so I can't speak to them.

So how should I meditate? anything special or just relax?
The way I do it to help induce, is to lie in bed before I actually go to sleep and relax by breathing through my nose, deeply and slowly. You don't want to force it, it should feel natural. As you do it just feel your body, allow your mind to wander free of forced thoughts, feel your heart beating, in your chest, in your fingertips, in your toes, feel your lungs fill and drain.
You may feel other sensations during this, it is, I believe the Kundalini, you may want to read up on it before progressing further as it can be overwhelming.
Do you know your dreaming in every dream or just some?
Most dreams. There are nights where I feel as though I didn't dream at all, but may awaken with small senses of an image or two, I believe these are the normal dreams. Whenever I dream vividly I tend to realize I'm dreaming and usually, just go for the ride, nudging it in a particular direction rather than run amok as it were.
Can you decide before you sleep your going to do it or does it just happen?
Sometimes it does just happen, I can increase the odds of it happening but there's never a true guarantee it will happen when I want it to happen.
I guess in dream time it was about 10 min, not sure how long real time but I woke up wide awake which is unusual for me as I am not a morning person LOL
perception of time inside a dream from outside a dream is very skewed. researchers of the brain/dreams have found we have about 2 hours of dreams to 8 hours of sleep with 3-5 separate dreams though they would tend to blend into one from our perspective. I have, particularly when quite tired, dozed off between hitting the sleep button on my alarm and had what I could have sworn was an hour long dream
