On the other hand, many of us always remember our dreams, even though we may or may not write them down or give them much attention. The biggest culprit of bad recall is often too much stress.

This appreciation is followed by the excitement of the prospect of actually being able to control something that seems so real. It is extremely ...

      Dream control and lucid dreaming are closely related, but remember that you can always have one without the other. Some lucid dreams have little to no control, while other non-lucid dreams seem to offer a great amount of control in the context of the dream plot.

      Much of what you may wish to do in lucid dreams will require some form of dream control. Be it teleporting to a new place, flying, having adventures, creating scenarios for practice or problem solving, or banishing nightmares. In order to become successful at controlling your dreams, it will take a lot of practice and experience on your part.
