      Question Different powers to try?

      So I'm fairly new to LDing and trying to come up with different powers to try out in an attempt to stretch my abilities and learn greater control.

      Last night during my LD I was having much better luck holding the dream stable than previously, so I thought I'd start trying out some different abilities to see what all I could do. In the dream I was in a fight with many gun-wielding enemies, so most of the powers I attempted were related to fighting.

      During the fight I was able to; throw energy balls, shoot lightning, create earthquakes, and heal myself by touching my hand to the wound. (For those that know the show I was watching an old rerun of Charmed on TV shortly before going to sleep so thats where some of the power ideas came from)

      When I eventually awoke after the dream my 1st thought was along the lines of 'idiot, why didn't you try flying' so after DEILDing to return to dreaming I flew into Earth orbit. (actually I tried to land on the moon, but my aim was off and I kept missing before finally coming back to earth)

      Anyways, since I was able to successfully use all the powers I attempted I was looking for some other suggestions for things to try. (I have also had some luck with teleporting in previuos LD's but my record in that is not as good)

      Telekinesis and summoning objects are already on my list of things to try next time (As well as shielding myself so I don't have to use healing so frequently ), but I was wondering what suggestions others might have for abilities to try out. Any advise you may have in better harnessing abilities is also much appriciated.

      Flying of course...

      Fireballs and energyballs are fun for explosions...

      Epic battles are great too.
      Bollocks.

      A good one for fights is blood/DNA blades, so useful if you get hurt lol
      Creating a new persistent realm, claiming it and breaking the last seal I made back in the beggining of my journey are my goals right now

      Blood/DNA blade? I guess I'm not exactly sure what that is. Is it like when your arm/hand morphs into a blade?

      A challenging power to try is walking through walls or melting through floors. It is very difficult unless I am very familiar with the place I try it in, like my house. Otherwise, I get lost in a black abyss until my mind renders a new place, making it more like teleportation. The easiest seems to be walking through doors in my house, since I already know what's on the other side. Good luck!

      Kinda like flying but just hopping around/floating is a fun thing to do


      Also this isn't a power but just explore the dream world. It's amazing!

      I find walking through walls to be pretty easy. However, you are right, it oftens turns into teleportation rather than actually passing through walls, since you can't really know what actually is on the other side

      As for new powers, I've always wanted to try and melt, or you know, become liquid. Shapeshifting also sounds cool, like morphing into a bird.

      You should try flying into the sun next time, should be easier to hit. Plus there is this girl who lives in the center of the sun who is really, really hot!

      Well most of the decent things have been listed already

      pyrokinetics-the ability of setting things on fire using your mind
      cryokinetics-the ability of freezing things using your mind
      duplication-this might be hard but fun
      invisibilty-very fun but sometimes tricky

      here are just some of the things you can try

      (the only one here I have tryed is invisibilty so I don't know how hard the other powers are)

      You can also look through the Lucid Task threads, those have some good ideas. You wont get anything for completing the older ones now, but it is still good practice.
      Bollocks.

      It's nice to expand your dream powers, but I find it efficient to use sets of dream powers that revolve around themes. Some powers can be energy based (fireballs, energy swords, laser beams), reality manipulation based (time control, telekinesis, reality warping), based on yourself (shapeshifting, super-strength, teleportation), and many other sets exist. To start off and not go crazy with your dream powers, think of your favorites, then go with those till you find something else worthy of trying in your lucids.

      You risk trying everything and not knowing what exactly you want to do anymore. At least, that's how I feel about it.

      My favorite is shapeshifting. It is such an exhilarating experience, feeling your body change into some sort of powerful creature. It is also a fun way to work on dissolving your ego.

      Those time manipulation ones sound fun.

      I've actually been having trouble realizing I am in dreams lately though because some on the common indicators aren't working anymore for me. Technology not working in dreams being the big one. I've actually watched tv, used the phone, and even gone on the computer in my dreams over the last week, so I can't really rely on those not working as give aways anymore.

      360 degree vision...never tried it, and might be quite hard to pull-off, but reckon it'd be quite cool!

      I tried shooting energy balls out of my palm last night and my accuracy wasn't too good either. I then tried charging up my arm to shoot a beam, and it was much straighter

      When it comes to energy balls, I prefer to throw them.

      If you shoot them out of your hands, they seem to take an odd path, atleast with me anyway.

      But if I make one, hold it in my hand, and pitch it, I'm much more accurate.
      Bollocks.

      I actually had a pretty good run of LD's the last 2 nights (like 2 1 night and 4 the next w/DEILD) where I got a chance to test out a few more powers.

      I managed 2 walk through several walls (actually wasn't really hard, I just had never tried), I summoned a person by calling out for them to appear (Cupid for TotM), & I was able to twist and manipulate the shape of a DC's body by telekinetically using my hands to bend them to different shapes. (I also telikinetically severed a DC's foot )

      For some reason my teleportation was off last night though. I would do like I had in the past and close my eyes and picture where I want to go to. I would even feel like I was teleporting (even hearing the sound I usually hear when I do), but when I opened my eyes again afterwords I was right where I had been.

      I was able to work around it by calling out to summon portals to the location I wanted to go to and then jumping through them to get there, but it still seems odd I couldn't teleport like normal. (Also I still can't seem to manage to summon objects into my hands)
      Most used LD method: DEILD

      Powers I've used so far: Teleportation, Telekinesis, Flying, Walking through walls, Summoning People, Throwing fire, Throwing energy balls, Throwing lightening, Causing earthquakes, Self Healing, Altering others bodies, Giving/Removing power from DC's.
