And I really really love that special feeling you get knowing that it's a dream, but not completely believing it because all your senses say "no that can't be". So I do it for the adventure and loving to explore new worlds. Of course there are always things that you can learn with any adventure and new place/people you visit.
That's so awesome. I envy your abilities.
Thanks. It's so amazing that a dream can be a real place just like any other and have physical qualities. That's the part that always takes me by surprise. it always leaves me thinking "How can this be?" Experiencing the drean world as being separate of "you" and the dream world becoming just like the same world you experience in waking life. Truly unbelievable
. I think it's just a matter of practice, like anything. Maybe having more life experience helps you create a more real version of "reality" just because you've practiced at longer.
But just becoming lucid has been really more effort than ability I think. I try not to think too much about how much effort and time I have put into the process vs. what I have gotten out of it. I have a success rate of about 1 in 30 or even 50 attempts at this point.
Believe me, I have gotten a lot out of it but the amount of effort and shear will power is exhausting for me. I just had my first LD in two months of working on it almost every night, sometimes for 2 or 3 hours. I was really getting discouraged about it. I'm really hoping it gets easier, but even if not, it's still worth the effort.
