      Unhappy Failing Superpowers - Fireball

      I was wondering if anyone had any techniques or advice for creating fireballs? I understand that the will for something to happen in a lucid dream is pretty much what will allow for said thing to happen, but I have been trying for weeks and without luck. Flying is quite easy for me, as I initially thinking of swimming movements and build speed upon it. Dashing at high speed is also effortless as I concentrate to build up tension within my legs and then sprint off - just like you would do in waking life. However, creating fire is a concept that I am having trouble with. Someone suggested breathing hot air into the palms of my hands and to try and shape that feeling into fire but that hasn't worked either. Any suggestions?

      Ultimately, I am looking to create something like this within my dreams:

      Some suggestions...

      1. Watch that video a few times. Can you casually visualize yourself doing this? Can you steer away from that imagination and create your own animation, in your mind's eye? Maybe if you can do that, you will feel more comfortable doing it while dreaming.

      2. Maybe you should attach the act of making fire to a certain emotion or desire of yours. For example, if you are feeling happy with your life now, when you go to make fire, you can think of it as fireworks to celebrate your life. Or, if you feel sad, making fire can mean, taking your energy out of your body so you can admire it? I don`t know. I feel like if it has an emotional meaning that has to do with something going on in your real life, it might be easier (because it is still sort of your subconscious speaking to you through the fire, you haven't completely got side-tracked on something that's irrelevant with what your mind is trying to do.) Making fire to kill DCs is not relevant to your waking experience. Why would your mind dream about that? It's not pertinent. You know what I mean?

      Just have fun with it! You never know what'll happen. Once I tried to make a kid fly with a movement of my hand... But instead a car fell from the sky and landed on him... Oops

      3. Make a dream idol! Find something small, like a stone, or ring, in the waking world. Put your "energy" into it throughout the week, especially when you feel emotions that you connect with fire (anger, restlessness, hunger, nerves) while touching it (like rubbing a worry-stone) visualize yourself wielding fire, down to the physical sensation and FIRST PERSON viewpoint.
      When in a lucid dream pull the idol out of your pocket or off your hand and see if you can draw some of that energy out now! This is a great technique because it incubates the idea of fire throwing, it is a good measure of your awareness (how often do you remember the idol?), and reinforces MILD practices.

      NOTE: You don't need to be spiritual or have a new age belief for this technique (I don't), the psychology of it is all that is important. By giving that constant attention to it you are making it one of your own personal archetypes, your mythos, your trigger, your own pre-manufactured Pavlovian response. You are making this thing a visceral mental shortcut. The idea is to hardwire your brain to associate the stone with the sensations you need in-dream. Best thing about this method? Completely customizable and recyclable.

      4. Pull fire from an already existing source, out of a stove, or from a campfire. I think nearly everything in dreams is easier to manipulate rather than summon.

      5. Use friction, or other movement. The nature of fire is constant change, rub your hands together to spark a flame, dance and have fire rise from around you, make a really fast circle in the air with your finger tip and try to make a fireball light within it.

      Thank you for the great responses- very interesting stuff. You both raised very good points with the relation of fire to emotions. I shall try your suggestions and hopefully they yield success with a bit of practice. I'll keep you posted!

      Whilst I have not tried this out myself (because I haven't had a decent lucid in a while) I remember reading something about magic spells - if a particular phrase has a strong connection within your mind to something, you can use that to your advantage. For example, if you're big on Harry Potter, you could speak in the dream "wingardium leviosa" and do the motion with your magic wand in order to levitate objects.
      The one I want to try is from Skyrim (I love that god damn game) - shouting "Fus-Ro-Dah" whilst motioning my hand toward the desired area of effect should produce the sweet effect of blowing everything in front of me away.
      So yeah, if you know any fire spells from films that have a strong connection in your mind then try that!

      Also, I really like RebelSeven's idol idea!
