      Making Items

      Here's the thing. I don't really want to be changing the places I am in during a dream. I like the unexpected. However, I do wish I had greater control over the items I can have. So many times I'll be like "oh I need such and such right now" but won't be able to come accross a certain item. What I really want to do, which I find very hard, is to just make an item appear in my hand. I find it easier to find something in a location that I cannot see yet. I want it to be like the scene in Fight Club (The gun is in my hand.) Even last night, I knew I was lucid and could control my actions, but I just couldn't make things appear. Is vocalizing my intent the best way to go about this? I'm thinking I should just keep repeating to myself over and over until I get what I want. Any other suggestions?

      Just pretend you have the item in your hand. If you want a gun for example, pretend to shoot something with your fingers and shout "Bang" Pretty soon you should notice that you actually do have a gun because you believe you do.
      Hope that makes sense.
      Are you dreaming or awake?

      I know I repeat this but it has worked 100% of the time so far. Have a dream friend do the tings you can't. For example, I was trying to make a drink apear in my hand and wasn't able to. So I look over to my friend and she knew what I wanted and there it was in my hand. I always try it first, but if I can't she is always able to make it happen.

      There are a few simple things you can do.

      You can say to yourself "when I turn around, this-particular-item will be there" - This has worked for me every time, but I find that whipping myself around quickly can shake my lucidity

      Another similar thing is look under a surface. So say you want that gun, just reach under a chair or table and grab it. The hardest thing is believing you will actually grab it.

      The last thing is something I haven't tried, but if the item is small enough, just reach into your pocket and get it like you'd get change or your keys.

      These work if you think they'll work - and they do.

      I'm not sure how many other 'Trekkies' are here, but...for those of you who can remember the episode "Spectre of the Gun"...remember...it's only real if you believe it is...If you viscerally feel as though something can't hurt you/be real...it won't!

      Always had a bit of an LD feel to me...

      Sorry, if that's a bit off-topic...

      Well, creating guns is tricky and difficult.... I've conjured numerous guns and they rarely work... That is the gun seems to rely on your intent/will. If you just point and pull the trigger, you may be surprised to find that the damn thing malfunctions, but if you point and focus on your intention to shoot it, then it will work fine...

      My favorite way of creating items (including guns) is to reach in my pocket and feel for the thing. For example I want to create a gun. So i reach in my pocket (or both) and feel for the handle. Even if the pocket is empty, I may feel for the gun till I find it. The coolest thing is the feeling when I find the thing, but it is not materialized yet... Pretty much I pull out nothingness or a thought form and as I do that, it shapes in a gun...
      This method has some significant advantages over all other methods - you can do it while moving, you dont have to look away from whatever you are looking at, and finally you dont have to change your posture - just reach in your pocket.
