This time I was having a dream that was not so lucid, and I laid down to go to sleep in it. I began dreaming, but then was lucid! I knew I was dreaming, and that I had control of things. I was even going around to people in my dream and telling them that I am lucid dreaming. I saw various family members and told them this, all the while knowing it is not REALLY them, only a version from my subconscious.

Like I've been through various flying classes, where certain skills were set up for me to practice. The last one was interesting because it involved not only flying, but creating a form that I flew with- like a chair, that I would then sit in and make it fly with me.

I actually came to the conclusion at some point that I was quickly bored with that, that I prefered an element out of my control
Try to find a mirror. What does your reflection look like in the mirror? In a dream state, you probably won't look like the real you. The reflection will often be blurry or distorted. See warning section....
When checking reality with a mirror, your dream body may be so distorted that it frightens you so much you wake up.
What do you see? Do you relate to the person in the mirror? Do they move the same time that you move? Do you notice anything unusual about them?
The results, you'll find, can sometimes be scary and alarming. Here's a dream excerpt from the very first time I tried this experiment some years ago:
"I turn to face a mirror by the front door to see what I look like. It looks like me, but older, with messy hair and scary eyes. As if she reads my mind, the reflection starts to age rapidly and I get older and older. It's like the scene from the original Time Machine movie, a sort of stop-motion effect. My skin wrinkles and my hair goes gray and I am haggard. I am an old lady, with my mouth wide open. Then my teeth crumble and fall out and I become a corpse! I have just sped through my life. Man that was ugly!"...
Its quite in depth, and suggest doing dream analysis on what is seen.
it went into a face that was way off from my own- it was a red haired girl, rather big boned, with freckles. She seemed let down that I was being unsuccessful. I did not recognize the girl as anyone I know.
