I Experience Lucid Dreams

    Every once in a while (about every two weeks

    or so), I wake up inside my dream and take control. Sure, I can fly, and control minds in the dream, but the real rush comes from building cities, having skyscrapers explode forth from their stone prisons. It's amazing.

    I'm always dreaming whether I'm awake or asleep, and it seems I'm always awake whether I'm here or in dreamland. I almost never lose time and I'm generally accurate within 12 minutes if I'm woken at night and asked. One of my friends even had a game going for a while where he...

    Lucid Dreaming Is The Best Way To Dream :D

    I once tried to practice lucid dreaming.

    At first I thought I was doing it but when I woke up, I couldn't remember everything, all the details of my dream. And I felt bad because I really wanted to experience lucid dreaming. It's a beautiful experience, this lucid dreaming.
