I've been able to control my dreams for as long as I can remember...
As a child I could even trade information among friends within my dreams.
I've been trying to take my dream role play to a new level and have been attempting to implement some techniques I've learned about on the Internet to make myself more self aware within my dreams. You know, to wake myself up to my dream world, but when I do that, it wakes me up in real life...
I can usually tell I'm dreaming in a dream, when things are not good. But doing so, usually immediately wakes me up. But taking control of my good dreams is a whole different ball game. I usually am not skeptical during a good dream and therefore don't actively change the outcome. I watch it like a movie I guess? But through my own eyes.
Last night I used some techniques I learned of and recognized my dream even though it was good, but doing so ended a great great dream...
How do I not wake up when I recognize a dream?
Any experts out there? I'm interested in hearing first hand experiences as well.

Tips for in the dream; try not to strain your focus on distant objects or minute details, your mind may overwork itself trying to fill details that were not intended to be noticed, this leads to blacking out

that must be stressful on your girlfriend who may have a different spiritual path where alarms actually hold her back while u propel yourself forward. just consider it.
there is another way..
eat well and take a good rest. i mean a long one.. full 8 hrs at least and allow your body to wake up when it feels good and ready. go use the potty or whatever and then go back in bed and lay on your back with eyes closed. you wont feel like going to sleep but set urself thru the motions anyway. learn the sleep process so u can induce it manually relaxing and turning off everything except your eyes. peering into the third eye region. just remember to keep looking and seeing under your eyelids.
