      Lacking

      hey, just in general... i can't seem to get control in my dreams. i'll go lucid easy enough, i just have to think it before i drop off, or when i sleep light i generally just am, but everyone always rules over me; if i really want to do something and get upset someone shows up (or someone with me is possessed), does it, tells me how to do it myself next time, and wanders off (lets go of the dream character). i don't forget the lesson, but it never works for me and the next time either a guide shows up again and the last bit repeats, or i let out a frustrated yell and run my hands through my hair and sit down, and someone will roll his/her eyes, do it for me, and go back to whatever they were up to.

      i suspect it's just an issue of how my mind works, the philosophies i base everything on, but still... it would be nice to have some actual control, cuz my personality is always entirely intact and ppl tend to bully me around in my dreams.

      does anyone else have this? or does anyone have any ideas? i'm not a very controntational person, i hate ordering others around... (this might just b the issue, but still...)

      help?

      Love's a kind of dust,
      Hope's an age-old feud,
      And both Angels and Demons are allowed to brood.

      I'm, assuming by this that you are trying to control your dream characters and it's not working? It does sound to me like you are having some conflicts with your personality.

      Have you tried starting out with something smaller, like inanimate objects or animals? You chouls not experience conflict there.
      you must be the change you wish to see in the world...

      i can manipulate metal to a degree, like i tend to get into car wrecks, it's one of my dream signs, and i'll bend dents back out, but i can't seem to do anything else, reallly...

      yeah it sounds like you have a little bit of trouble with your personality/mind. try meditating or take a vacation.

      as for the controling thing, not sure why it wont work for you. IMO i think its a pyschological barrier. because nothing works for you in the past, you subconciously think you are not in control and cant do it or some crap like that. When you are trying to control something are you stressing about it, putting all you've got into it? if you are i dont really recommend that. when you are trying to control something, do it passively and be in control, but don't go out of control doing it. I find that you can do grander things with better control if you are doing it while being calm, peaceful, and conversative about it.

      hope i helped.
