That being said, my long term concern is this. After delving deep into lucid dreaming, is it possible to reach a point where you can no longer have regular dreams? Is it possible to have reached a point where lucid dreaming comes effortlessly and you have lucid dreams when you don't want to? It's a concern relating to "Inception" to those of you who have seen it. When I first got into this, I thought: I bet some people go off the deep end with this stuff.
Has anybody heard stories of people losing touch with reality with lucid dreaming, or have heard anything about horrific things done because somebody thought they were dreaming?
isn't an answer to your main question, but when you say you are 'semi-lucid' you are in fact fully lucid, just not in complete control.
Thanks guys for the quck input. So from here, how do you suggest I gain control? Rubbing my hands together? What are some other tricks to ground myself?
At this point, its beginning to get very frustrating that I can have such vivid dreams and be able to remember such amazing detail, but have yet to have a full blown lucid dream. I always seem to get soo close to snapping awake but it just does not happen. It's as if I keep having lucid thoughts, but not really realizing I'm dreaming. For example, the other night I can remember going to the bathroom in my dream and thinking to myself, "I hope im not pissing my bed right now," but I am unable to question whether or not I'm dreaming. I know I should perform reality checks my often so that they start to filter down into my dreams, but its proving a little difficult. And after reading some of the works my LaBerge and how some experienced lucid dreamers don't even need reality checks and can skip right to direct awareness, it begs the desperate question, "Why can't I!?"
Any suggestions or advice about where I should go from here would be GREATLY appreciated, thanks.
