      Smile First DILD, experience, questions.

      Well I should start by saying Hi. I'm a 22 year old male in Florida just learning about this amazing ability, Lucid Dreaming. I have however had Lucid Dreams before, never realizing what they were (mainly as a kid), and never really having that full awareness and consciousness that you are in complete control. When I was young for example, I could fly and pretty much go where I wanted, and would always do some superhero-unleash-the-power shit. Anyways, let me speed this up to the past couple weeks.

      I was reading online about something that led me to Lucidipedia. I read the material there and had an overwhelming sense that this could be the tool or catalyst that I have been looking for in my own spiritual journey. After loading up on advice, I began my Dream Journal (notice the capital lettering, I stress this step as it is absolutely essential for dream recall, and later recognizing a dream sign) on 19Mar10. This step as I've seen others say is a drag. I do mine as a Word document. No pen and paper. Yeah I know me not writing them down causes me to lose pieces, but this morning I was able to recall six dreams. I cannot be sure that some of these may had been one dream just shifting into different events, but I remember as being seperate. I have also had 2 other nights before this where I remembered 3 dreams or more. I do wake up a lot through the night, whether it be an alarm or my daughter.

      Now if you have read all that and are still with me, one of my dreams last night was me as a kid again, in my hometown. Is this common, to dream of yourself as either much younger or older? I would love to know the meaning behind this if any.

      I was able to fly in my Lucid last night. I was driving a van and the handling was off, I was like wait a minute. I then intended for the van to brake and pull over, which it did immediately as if it read my mind. I told everyone in the van, Im dreaming, were all dreaming. Got out and said "time to fly" took off and woke up a couple mins of trying to get it down.

      Sorry for the long post, I'm just overwhelmed at what my future nights hold.

      you know what. nevermind. A lucid dream "community", if that's what Dreamviews calls itself, that has threads with 200+ views and 3 replies, or none is a complete waste of not only my time (just registered thank god) but all of yours. Do your self a huge forum and jump on over to one the many other sites. They offer much more extensive backing and advice.

      To the rest of you braindead junkies, toodles.

      Here I was just reading your thread and thinking of what it meant until I read this statement. Kinda sad really, insulting everyone because no one responded to your post. Anyways, maybe you should have posted this in the dream interpretation thread. Anyways, hard to believe but some people actually have a life outside of forums

      I don't think it's super common for dreams to have your younger self in them, but I had one of these a week or so ago. Long story short, I saw my younger 8ish year old self in a vision. I was very embarrasing and SUCH . Then, out of the vision, younger me was in my house, and she was surprised I was a softmore.

      And, don't listen to unforgiven. DV is an excellent community for LDing. It is.
      If you see a strange typo in my post, blame my iPad for that.
