i've written children's stories from my dreams. gotten art projects from them. have movie ideas, novel ideas. all because i controlled where they went. but that is work.
so you see. those are one to two sentences descriptions of dreams that lasted a very long time. i slept through two phone calls with my phone right beside my head. and i'm exhausted. i've been doing this since i was a kid. i know how to make myself fly, how to move things with the nod of my head. and all this makes me angry when i wake up because it is soooo real. i've been to other planets where i breathe underwater and fly because there's no land. i've waited tables and i've run companies. and i've done it all for hours and hours! and i made the decisions to do it. but i've never rested. and i rarely feel rested when i wake up. so you asked for an opinion of someone who has done this for most of their life. there it is.
if someone comes to you and says they're tired. please don't pass them off. because i'm tired. i'm exhausted. these dreams suck you in and it's like a drug. you don't want to leave. my dreams are my drug. but they leave me feeling like crap in real life. if i could stop them... it's such a hard choice. there is no in-between here. apparently i can answer the phone or turn the clock off and still be in a dream state... go right back to where i was. it's that powerful. if i could dream for an hour and a half, i would be over the moon with joy.
so come up with something. work on something. this is a whole community of dreamers. please.
There's no reason you can't learn to nap within a lucid dream, or try to go to sleep in one or mediate, any of these should leave you more rested in real life.

i'm trying what y'all suggested. "resting, napping" in my sleep. between that and my new pain meds i seems to be getting rested better. i don't think it ever crossed my mind to "nap" in my sleep. when you wake up ready to tell your other half about 5 hours of adventure, it never crossed my mind -ever, to nap. that's not exciting or entertaining. but it sure is making the days better. so maybe i can save the long dreams for when i'm on to something that might be worth writing down!
thanks, and make sure you tell that to the next person. but do me a favor. don't tell it to them as if they should already know what they're doing. no one taught us "perma" anything. we just sleep and it happens. so when i first read your suggestions, i kinda felt like you were telling me something as if i should know it already, or know how to make goals for dreams. i don't do any of that. i didn't even know you could. the only goal i make if i need to is what time to get up. and that's only if i have a dr. appt, because i will turn the alarm clock off in my sleep. but if i make that goal- the whole universe takes over. the phone starts ringing. people start calling me. people start texting me. the fire alarm will say the batteries need changing. the neighbors will have someone with loud music pull into their driveway. i'm telling you... the whole universe gets involved. so i rarely make a real honest to goodness goal to do anything.
i've been lucid dreaming since i was 3. (i still remember some of the most vivid dreams from then) my first astral projection was at 13; completely NOT planned. i think all these things come from being an empath. i was dating another empath at 13 and his mom was the one that explained to me what was going on. i met him in my dream during the astral projection. the next day he called me and asked me if i had fun. i was freaked out. anyway... way off topic...
just please try to talk to one of us "perm lucid dreamers" like we're newbies and who happen to already be having the dreams with no previous guidance.
thank you a million for the help. and if i have anymore questions i'll definitely come ask!!
