You really only have to begin visualizing something regarding what you want to see... holding that visualization as crisp and vivid as you can... then you can watch it be created around you in real time.
Sometimes you might black out for a second and you'll find yourself there too though. It's an individual, unique thing as to how the reality is created.

The stuff that Rebecca writes about visualizing a dreamscape and then just popping into it has NEVER worked for me. I pop into LD's and just take what I get! Sometimes it's nothing - just blackness. Most of the time it's my own apartment and then I walk outside and it just turns into a random street scene. When I try to change it, it just doesn't work, and I get frustrated.
There are loads of different ways to generate a lucid dreamscape. You'll learn best from experience and simple trial and error.
Thanks for sharing that experience with us, Rebecca...I'm hopeful about gaining ground in this area. In the last 5 months or so, I've gone from 5 second LD's where I woke myself up from uncontrollable giddy giggling to being able to consistently do RC's, do pretty much any physical thing I can thinks of, and remember to stop and talk to DC's, though I may be curbing that behavior since they keep making me lose focus with their ramblings. But I would like to gain control of that for the day that I'm able to successfully conjure up Johnny Depp!
i also get alot of DC's who help me into my LD's. but then they are the cause of me waking up too

Since I know that I can control my own actions, I play around at first - fly, put my hands through walls, jump and leap and float just to see what I can do. Then I usually seek out a DC to talk to, though I will be cautious about that from now on, and then mine always end accidentally because I lose focus. I'm working on that.
I suggest to start out smaller then to make sure you dont end up too engrossed and loose your LD. Try asking just one question and once you have the hang of that.. then 2 and so on. Build up your skills.
Ive never had a boring LD.. the only things which got boring at one point were the APs in my bedroom where I had trouble walking throu the wall and kept getting stuck in my bedroom.
One thing I just love about LDs is the unpredictability, this keeps the dream exciting as they are even more unpredictable then real life. I never know where Im going to find myself. If I end up somewhere I dont like.. I just then get away from that place and go somewhere else. I go with the flow of the dreams but I also add my own wants and goals to that flow as well eg my dream challenge aims.
You may now be creating boring dreams for yourself due to your current expectation of that is how its going to be for you. Thinking habits can be hard to change and can really affect dream experiences... you need to convince yourself and have faith that you CAN easily have a non boring dream or otherwise this may keep happening to you.
