help, I can't control my lucid dreams

Postby ingestiblebulk » 10 Apr 2012 06:57

so, I had my third lucid dream last night, which is great. However, I've been having trouble with them. I become lucid, and I go to do something (like make something appear or go through a mirror) and I can't. The dream quickly descends back into being just a regular dream again. I think it may have to do with a lack of confidence in my ability to change my dream world. Any suggestions?

What you can do in a dream is all based exclusively on what you believe. In order to do more things in a dream you must believe you can do them. I know the word has a religious meaning, but it's really faith. Pure and simple. With faith you can move mountains.

I concur.
"Empty cognizance of one taste, suffused with knowing, is your unmistaken nature, the uncontrived original state. when not altering what is, allow it to be as it is, and the awakened state is right now spontaneously present."

- Padmasambhava
