Anyone ever lucid dream?

Yeah pretty much lucid dreaming is when you're dreaming, and you're asleep, but you are aware you are dreaming. So long story short, you can control your dreams. I've been lucid dreaming lately but don't really do anything proactive. ****'s crazy like inception...

Sometimes. I generally don't remember much of my dreams anymore though.

It isn't often that I remember them, but I don't have any restraints once I figure out I'm dreaming. Rather than doing crazy stuff (think Inception) I usually prefer to go through a normal day, but where everything goes right.

like 30% of the time, 20% of the time I know I'm dreaming but I can't control much of anything, (I hate it when that happens!)

What you said sounded like an inspirational quote from a movie "but where everything goes right" /cue heartwarming music. But if everything goes right in your dream portrayed as a normal day, then what happens when in reality everything starts going right? Then how will you differentiate dreams from reality o_O *dum dum dum*. Ha. No but I'm kinda envious of you because once your life is on track (not saying that it isn't but like when everything seems to connect and go right) then you will have made your dreams a reality :].

I realized that I control nothing. Control is merely an illusion. Hand over the control and free yourself.

I do that all the time. Especially when I take naps during the day.

I'm a great dreamer.....kind of like a dream weaver.

I read part of Kerouacs Book of Dreams when I had a psych major room mate in college, and he was always real curious about my dreams in the morning. I've always had really weird dreams, and sometimes I'm aware I'm dreaming. And how does this make you feel?

Actually it's a bit of a problem because I have them regularly, but sort of autopilot my way through them most of the time. As a result I periodically think I've told someone something/already done something when in fact I haven't.
