    Everyone goes through phases like that I have them every so often too for no reason. Why not try and then you can do whatever you want in your dreams?
    This is true and weird as this sounds the feeling of almost invincibility is pretty much unmatched, I tried to tell people who can't/don't do it and they just didn't get it

    Last night I tried phasing through an iron wall (of a ship) - it was one of the strangest things I've ever experienced, the feel of the wall going through my body… although it's probably one of these really subjective things that everyone experiences differently, because it's so far removed from anything that we experience when awake.

    It hurt a very little bit (about the level of the threat of a headache when you've got a bad cold), but not much.
    Next plan is to hold some sort of discussion with some good philosophers - my latest interest is consciousness and the nature thereof, and I want to know what my brain thinks about it have you ever tried "talking to yourself"?

    Have you been watching inception? You will always wake up from your dream, either naturally or if you set an alarm normally. You can't get stuck there. If you do feel like you're stuck there then you can shout 'Wake up!' and you will There's nothing to be scared of, in my opinion the dream world is a world better than ours, it's awesome

    Apparently the best way to wake up from a Lucid Dream is to go to sleep in it! Weird eh?

    Anyone else tried flying in an LD? What about sex haha?
    That is weird, often you'll have a false awakening though :P

    I have had many dreams in which I have done both of those :P Flying is so so amazing, it feels like it would do if you were really flying. I could see vast landscapes with grass greener than I've ever seen. Flying is brilliant ^_^

    It's a dream where you're aware that you're dreaming.

    The way I do it (if I want to, anyway, which is quite rare) is to do the thing that Hiro does in Heroes when he time-travels - that is, screw my eyes really tightly shut and think really hard that when I open them, they'll be my real eyelids rather than the dream ones.

    Haha that's awesome! I loved Heroes, such a shame they cancelled it

    My own experiences are completely different from anonymouse's - I'm not one of those people who naturally lucid dream, I had to learn, but it didn't take much effort. It doesn't "**** you up" to see weird things in a mirror - aside from anything else, you're dreaming, so you don't really feel emotions the same way (in general, in my experience, emotions in dreams are either massively, ridiculously overamplified, or pretty much not present). You take very weird things in your stride (as if it were completely natural for you to have seven fingers, for example - that's my stock lucidity test). I've never been haunted by dreams (at least, not for longer than about five minutes after the dream ends)…
    I had a really odd dream recently where I 'woke up' in the dream, and my right arm was a mess. The skin was burnt, lots of flesh was missing, I could clearly see my severed viens and bone, and all I felt was intrigued and mildly surprised. I can't really describe how awful it looked, or how surprised I was at my reaction when I properly woke up...

    I just read the quoted text and remember this
