Anyway, I always forget this myself, but when you become lucid and know it, TOUCH THINGS and pick things up. That makes it feel so much more real.
And in my experience, and I bet others, my most vivid, true to waking life dreams that I get, whether lucid or not, always happen in the early morning after I awake and go back to bed and dream for another hour or three.
(Just this morning I went back to bed and was NOT lucid, but it was SO VIVID and like waking life. I was actually washing dishes at one point! Nothing spectacular and very mundane. The lucid dream eluded me as it sometimes does, but those early hour dreams are always the most vivid aren't they?)
Your sense of self is different. I sometimes feel like a child in my lucid dream although when awake I know I am 33 and should behave accordingly. But that is just a mental filter I consciously place on myself. There is always an inner child in all of us and that is the personality that I have in a lucid dream. After all, it was my first and true personality.
Not only is the environment different from reality and behaves differently (depending on how much focus you place on something), but your own internal, introspective self is also different.
That is what I have noticed with myself, and it is not a problem. Relish it and take notice. Then you may realize that your true self is not what you thought you were......... or you were always you and all that conscious baggage you placed on yourself is non-existent, if you mentally abandon it......
So anyway, if you want to control yourself in a lucid dream.... get to know yourself. We are like our own best friends who have become so accustomed to each other we forget to listen to each other.
