      I've had lucid dreams since childhood. I have no limits. I don't understand others who have limits.

      In my dreams I'm usually always aware that I'm dreaming and can just have fun with the dream. I can manifest any super power. For instance, last night I was on vacation with my wife on an island (in the dream) and a volcano erupted spreading ash around the island. I decided to fly and using my powers I commanded, with the wave of my hands, for all the ash to be moved back into the mouth of the volcano. I then flew over the mouth and sealed it by sheer will alone. I then decided to re-landscape the island and raised the volcano up into a majestic mountain in the middle of the island. I did this while hovering over the island. I usually fly by simply moving at will as fast or slow as I want and not in a horizontal way like you see Superman fly. Wind pressure has no effect, so I simply move as if I'm standing up. I can fly into space and still breathe and fly into the sea where I can also breathe.

      I don't understand others who find it difficult to lucid dream or control their dreams since I've always been able to. I can dream full 'movies' whether I'm in it or not. And, even create trilogies and dream consecutively over three nights and pick up where I left off from the night before.

      Maybe, some are trying too hard to lucid dream or control the dream? It simply happens for me without effort.

      That's one thing I've never done in any dream is be a ruler over others. Never had the thought.

      Thank you for attesting to my experience. Just because someone has not had the same experiences doesn't mean others can't. There's a WHOLE lot more I could share, but it would take too long.

      What I don't like are dreams within dreams within dreams. Not just one deep layer, but three layers of dreams within dreams. That is not being aware (lucid), but thinking you're lucid at some point in the dream and then waking up, but you haven't woke up and don't realize you're still dreaming. Then, realizing it and waking yourself up from a dream you don't want to be in, but you STILL haven't woke up. You're still dreaming. Now that is a real trip and one that will throw you for a loop.

      Why? I'm sure others have had the same experiences. There's nothing new under the sun.

      I guess other dreams I could share would be a waste of time if people on a dream forum can't believe a person had a particular kind of dream. Dreaming is as limitless as a person's imagination and open mindedness.

      Experimenting in dreams is a real treat. Such as knowing you're dreaming so why don't I just walk through this wall in front of me. Done that many times. When you know you're dreaming why limit yourself. It's a limitless virtual world. The key is to not think in dimensional limits such as gravity and physical barriers. Turn bad dreams into ones where you are in control. I've been sprayed with toxic chemicals in dreams that were supposed to kill me, but I realized I can just become a new creature with powers thanks to the toxic spill. Turning around a bad experience into something good is fun and memoriable.

      I'm also curious to find out what color or lack thereof do others dream in. I dream in color, of course (real life), but will dream in black and white if I'm dreaming a movie set in the 1920's for example. My latest one like that was being a government agent ("G-Man") with the job of protecting the girlfriend of a notorious mafia leader. That one I enjoyed in black and white. The girl was a total knock-out as they used to say, with short dark hair and nicely dressed. You know, the kind that you can tell has been spoiled with money, jewelry and designer clothing. That girl happened to be my wife (in real life), but in this dream she was playing that character and I was her bodyguard. Fun stuff. Oh, and yes I think my wife is a 'knock-out' all the time, not just in a dream. Been married 19 years and it has been bliss!

      Eddy, ignore this member. He is an extremely small representation of some of the members on this forum.

      There are tons of Naturals like you here. And it's understandable why you don't understand why it's harder for some of us. I myself can say that I don't practice enough, but my DILDs have been getting more frequent, so I'm getting there.

      to DreamViews. Personally, I'd love to hear more of your dreams.

      Yeah, this is a very reasonable claim and I think I can speak on behalf of pretty much all of the DV members who painstakingly keep dream journals when I say "Lucky!"

      But, yeah, it is only fair to assume that everyone's brain is wired a little differently and therefore are naturally better in certain tasks, this includes lucid dreaming, such as yourself. Consider yourself envied...


      And as an interesting thought/opinion....I would think that LDing every night over SEVERAL years would diminish the wonder of the lucid dream.

      Well first off, congratulations you lucky bastard
      You're what we call a 'natural', you have lucid dreams every night, if not at will.

      Enjoy them, very few people are as fortunate as you.

      I have had a dream in all red once when i was younger. it was nuts.

      Anyway try not to triple post there is an edit button.

      I have been trying to become lucid again its hard for me, i have to basically think about lucidity and listen to a song over and over while thinking about being alert, i have to put headphones in my ears with music on a timer at just the right volume as to wake me up enough that i hear it in my dream, realize what it is and become lucid, without fully awakening.

      I like to have non-lucid dreams a lot though they make for great storys.

      People who are not natural lucid dreamers are used to the waking world full of rules and limits and it's hard for a mind to get used to a world with no rules. It's not that hard to understand. If your always lucid then you must be quite used to it. Others need familiar things to "ground" themselves in a dream ,ie gravity, breathing, etc.

      No more diminishing than playing a new video game so to speak. New environment or setting. I usually don't control the setting or place I'm at, just what I can do within it or I do manipulate it too. But, I usually go with the setting. So much to explore, just like the awake world.

      And, I'll never get bored with the feeling of flying and the total freedom of movement through space. It can't truly be duplicated in the physical world even from feeling weightless from negative g force which I've experienced. As many of you have experienced, the total liberty in flying, expecially moving fast, is exhilerating isn't it. Passing through walls/objects and being able to use unlimited strength is a similar feeling. I guess it's euphoria, for lack of a better word.

      I don't ld every night. If I'm not getting much sleep due to work, that hinders.

      I'm new on here and have found this site interesting.

      At least admit you don't have perfect control, and sometimes it takes you a couple of tries to do something. Or sometimes you try and do something and it has unexpected results.

      Why is it important to you that I admit that?

      When I'm in that state I DO have perfect control. I didn't always have such control when I was very young. I'm in my early 40's now and I do indeed control when I'm in that state. Sure, if I'm just dreaming normally (usually when I'm not resting well) then it's just an ordinary dream and I'm not seeking control of the environment around me.

      But, when I am well rested and go into lucid dreaming which is easy for me, then I have absolute limitless possibilities. Again, it wasn't always this much freedom, but it is now and has been for a number of years. I guess I don't place limits on myself while I'm awake and that comes out in my dreams. I have a lot of hope and an optimistic person.

      I remember when I was a kid, sometimes I could fly very fast and very high, but sometimes I would be limited on how high. I felt the barrier. Now I feel no barrier. In my dreams I don't display powers like you see in the movies with rays coming out my hands or lighting, stuff like that. I just move and create by sheer will alone and watch as the world around me is altered by my thoughts. I guess I've just simplified things to the basics of what a dream is - thoughts.

      There is no such thing as perfection, hence there is no perfect control. I don't doubt your abilities, yet I trust that skills come with practice and honing it through experience. I see nothing strange there that people have problems in the start, before they achieve the line when they are able to excel better control. I think you just have trained yourself along the years, even if you haven't noticed.

      Moreover, the perfect control. I don't buy it. Great control, all right, but not perfect. Have you tried to clone yourself with 100 copies and see through eyes of them all? Have you perfectly copied feelings, smells, sounds etc? Choices are pretty much endless.
      Jujutsu is the gentle art. It's the art where a small man is going to prove to you, no matter how strong you are, no matter how mad you get, that you're going to have to accept defeat. That's what jujutsu is.

      I understand what you mean and I should rephrase my comment. When I say complete control it means complete control in what I intend to do in the dream. So far, in recent years, I haven't run into a barrier of what I intended to do in the dream. Does that mean I can take someone else's idea (like cloning myself and looking thru 100 eyes) and have control - I don't know. It's only been complete control when its something I have a desire to do or accomplish. It has to come from my own heart (or in this case mind, but you know what I mean). I have seen thru other people's eyes including created characters, but never thought of cloning myself 100 times. That's a new one.

      That's sounds more like it. There is room for variation and i.e flying or materializing things are far from difficult, at least from my opinion.

      I just had to cling on the word perfect, because I detest that word.

      So how is it you don't understand people with limits when you yourself used to have limits?

      It's important because that lets me know you're not full of shit. There's always someone who comes in here claiming to have perfect control. Usually they claim that hey got bored with lucid dreaming, which is just impossible. And they never have any advice on control to give either. Not that I'm saying that's the case with you.

      That makes me believe you. I've done pretty much the same thing. A lot of people try to use techniques to accomplish stuff, but those techniques end up becoming unnecessary distraction.

      Well that's not quite the same thing, and your claims of control are not so grandiose and they first sounded. I see your point though. If your goal is to move a mountain, it doesn't matter how it gets moved. Why most people fail at control is they try to do things in too specific a manner, like move a mountain by having it carried away by a million Elvis impersonators. Failure usually occurs with the method.

      But if you can't find a way to execute specific ways of controlling things, you can't claim to have perfect control. Even though your simplified method is more efficient and better in every way.

      It's difficult in expressing the meaning of our communications in the limited form of forums, typing and reading. What I was trying to convey is my own limited understanding of why some have such limits that I never had. I've always been able to fly in dreams and know people who would like to and never have. I certainly understand some limits such as speed, height and other things as I used to experience as a small child.

      First of all, when I first came to this forum I didn't realize my lucid dreams would seem so 'grandiose' in the presence of the like-minded. So, forgive me for not expressing myself in a more acceptable way.

      Secondly, when I said perfect control I meant I have perfect control in what I attempt to do in my dream and in my way. I simply don't have a hinderance. If I want to move a mountain I move it the way I find the most pleasing to me. Surely, there are others on here that experience this freedom. I'm not saying I have control to move the mountain the way someone else requests of me. It has to be my own thoughts, my own will. When it comes from within I find freedom to manipulate the dream.

If I want to move a mountain I move it the way I find the most pleasing to me. Surely, there are others on here that experience this freedom. I'm not saying I have control to move the mountain the way someone else requests of me. It has to be my own thoughts, my own will. When it comes from within I find freedom to manipulate the dream.
      Ever considered getting involved with a sleep lab?
      If you're claims are true, and i see no reason why they shouldn't be,
      Your natural skills would be of great use to those who are studying dreams and lucid dreaming.

      So essentially you make a thread to wave your ability over others? That isn't exactly sportsmanlike, I'm sure we could all make high-and-mighty threads like this, applauding our abilities in goemetry or poetry or horseriding.

      Eh, forgive my outburst, but a title like that is pretty arrogant.
