    The trick with lucid dreaming is to not use it to interrupt or prevent other dreams and nightmares. Dreams are our mind's way of processing and you can create massive problems for yourself if you don't let your mind use all of its creativity in the subconscious to work through it. I know this because I used to lucid dream to control my dreams and prevent nightmares. It meant none of my trauma was getting processed and I couldn't emotionally connect within that.

    The mind is pretty amazing. I've had within dream dissociation (I have ddnos) and one particular nightmare prompted within dream dissociation rather than lucid dreaming

    I used to always try to lucid dream but whenever I was in the dream, the second I'd realise it was a dream, I'd get too excited about it and wake myself up.

    How often and how long are your lucid dreams?

    And what kind of stuff do you do in them?

    Every night, approx 30 minutes

    Play football, chess, and generally be a boss with that ninja ****.

    You play chess against yourself (your subconscious)?

    Its also interesting because I had assumed that things like that wouldn't work that well in dreams. I mean, some dreams I seem to forget how many arms a person is meant to have (I have a third arm uselessly drooping off my body? Okay!)

    I control the moves of the opponent
