      Active or passive?

      What the title says... Do you use active or passive dream control?

      I voted for "a bit of both." Though, I use a ton of passive control.

      I use Active control mostly when I am doing something I already have done numerous times. Flying, telepathy, telekinesis, same area teleportation, etc. If I am very familiar with what I am trying to do, I go active control all the way.

      My passive control comes when I am doing something new, something I have had trouble with in the past, something I have only done a few times. Although, once I get into that actor mindset, I will often use passive control without even thinking about it. I am really big on passive control .

      I use a bit of both. It really just depends on the situation and how I decide to react.

      I'm all for passive! And besides, I like to act. I like to make things seem as natural or real as possible.

      The 1% of the time I use active control is when I'm telling the dream to end a nightmare, or something that I can't seem to passively control.

      My default approach is to passively control the dream. But if I am having trouble I will use active control.

      I don't use passive control much, but I'm starting to like it more and more. I use active control in every lucid basicly.

      Next Lucid Task: Telekinesis [ ]

      I'm actively passive. I love seeing what my mind creates when given a tabula rasa.
