Just in the past month I have been able to leave my body in a lucid dream. In the dream, I would vocally tell my mind to leave the room, "LEAVE THE ROOM". I would then enter other objects or people, and try to control them like you would normally do it in a dream.

If you have never done this before, try it. The fealing of seeing your own body standing there is SO amazing!

Another way to do this I found out is to go in your bathroom (or somewhere with a mirror). Look in the mirror and try try try to see yourself.

good luck!! Its worth the try!
