      Questions about control

      I'm really new to this kind of stuff (started yesterday) and I have some questions.
      1) How much control do you really have? If there are people, will they do whatever you want?
      2) Can you really just change your entire environment? Can you just morph yourself into an elephant or teleport to Egypt? How does that kind of stuff work

      You can do absolutely anything you can imagine. This is all happening in your mind, so why would anything be impossible? It just takes practice.

      My control is fairly good, but it's still not always great. I sometimes fail when I want to do something, you just have to think that it will work and it most likely will. Sometimes, you won't even know if you're doubting it, and it won't work. What you want to happen should happen though (does this make sense? Kinda hard to say.)

      Getting good control takes quite a while. I've started getting most of my lucids in Feb., and I have just about a month ago gotten pretty good with control. Sometimes, this is out of the question, first lucids usually won't last long, so you won't even have time to control anything.

      You can morph into creatures and change the enviornment, but this is very hard to do, and is usually for experienced lucid dreamers. Instead of actively changing the enviornment, it's a good idea to transport, say, through mirrors, and think of where you want to go. Just simply go through the mirror, if you think that you'll be able to do it, you will.
      If you see a strange typo in my post, blame my iPad for that.

      1) How much control do you really have? If there are people, will they do whatever you want?


      It depends on the dream. Some dreams are easier to control than others. But I do have full control over myself (my thoughts, my body, such as flying), and a lot of control over the environment (changing parts of the scenery, changing weather ect.). However, I have never been able to consciously control every aspect of my environment at once without making the dream very unstable. It's just too hard to keep conscious tabs on everything.

      People are much the same way. Some of them I can control like puppets, some I can trick into doing things. But even lucid, a lot of DCs I just can't control no matter what I try. They're quite stubborn.



      2) Can you really just change your entire environment? Can you just morph yourself into an elephant or teleport to Egypt? How does that kind of stuff work


      I have actually teleported myself to Egypt! Hehe. It's very pretty there. I didn't get to see the pyramids though, except in the distance. Next time, maybe! The way I did it was make a TARDIS appear (the picture in my avatar) and used that to teleport.

      I've turned msyelf into animals before, like a deer or a cat.

      With dream control, it's easier to find some sort of "logic" to help you along. For example, instead of poofing something in front of you, imagine that it's in the next room. Or to teleport, pick a closed door and imagine the place on the other side, then go through. Stuff like that helps me. Good luck!

      Dream control is fun. These are all food suggestions. Sometimes when it doesn't work funny things happen anyway. Recently an elf was trying to scare me, I became lucid and I made a ball of love energy in between my hands using my third eye and my heart about the size of a beach ball. I threw it to him. This was all while I was lucid and using dream control. but I didn't know what would happen. I wasn't trying to control that. So when the elf caught the ball he got drunk, real happy and fell down in bliss hugging the ball. That was funny.
      Dream control is like working out your muscles in a way. At first you can only do 15 push-ups, but if you keep practicing you can do a lot more.

      I am really strong (I picked up a car going 45ish and through it at another car)
      I am immortal (I have been hit by cars hundreds of times)
      I can fly
      I have TK
      I can go through objects (walls, doors, etc...)
      I have mind control (works every time)
      I have more, but I can't remember. For the most part, it took a lot of practice, except the strong thing and the immortal thing. I failed countless times at flying and TK. Finally, it just started working.
