      dream settings

      I'm curious if anyone has had a similar problem as mine and how they dealt with it. I'll explain:

      One thing I've noticed with my lucid dreams is that my bedroom is almost always the setting in which I begin within the dream. I lie down for a nap or something and sleep paralysis sets in. Next I pass through the hypnagogia stuff and enter into the lucid dream state. Then I get out of bed in the dream realm and I'm standing in a dream version of my bedroom.

      The problem for me is that the setting is rarely different and can be difficult to change. Usually I go outside into the street or into the backyard or something, which is still a lot of fun in the dream realm, but it takes time to leave my room and go there. I have to walk down the hall, open doors, and navigate through the house to get there. If I try to go somewhere further away I will sometimes wake up before I get there which is annoying. It feels like I'm in a rush when this happens. Attempts to intentionally manifest a new setting usually fail and I'll get stuck somewhere or start falling through the floor or something and wake up.

      I've had some exceptions. I hardly ever have dream-initiated lucid dreams, but the few I've had were set elsewhere. I'm better at inducing wake-initiated lucid dreams though and I enjoy them more because my WILDs are more vibrant and give me a greater feeling of ecstasy than my DILDs. It would be nice to add the same variety to my WILDs that I have in my DILDs. How can I be somewhere else when the dream begins?

      Jump out the window, then fly somewhere. Alternatively, teleport.

      Try using a door as a portal (although that might be a bit hard in your own house) or spinning.

      Hmm, I rarely fall asleep that way. Have you tried spinning and changing locations that way? Seems like it'd be a quick way to leave your house.

      Or perhaps as you open a door let it take you to another location.

      Try to think of it as a clone of your house, not really your home so anything can happen.

      That's usually where I end up when I WILD too..

      Most times when this happens I'll close my eyes and imagine myself somewhere else.
      A few times recently I've gotten creative..try going into your closet, close the door so that it's completely dark. Speak the name of wherever you want to go, or think it(it doesn't matter, at least not for me). When you open the door, you should arrive there.

      Creativity helps alot in lucids..try thinking outside of the box, maybe pull down wallpaper that's seperating you and the outside world?

      Thanks for all of the tips; they were pretty helpful. I just had a few more lucid dreams and I was able to change the settings to something other than my usual. Also, the dreams were so vivid that I had to do a RC before doing something risky; just to reassure myself that I really was dreaming.

      Being more creative helped a lot. I noticed that while exploring my surroundings there where inconsistencies between my real room and the dream version. It helped me to believe more that I wasn't in a copy of my real room. In one dream I was able to find/manifest a window where there normally isn't one and when I climbed through it I was somewhere totally unfamiliar.

      I am sort of new at approaching lucid dreaming systematically or trying to induce them intentionally. I'm still learning a lot of these tricks and finding out which ones work for me.
