Help! How can I get more control

I'm very New at this. I started this week. Last night I had my first lucid dream, sort of. I knew I was dreaming about 75 percent. Either that or my brain was just acting out what I was trying to practice (lucid dreaming) And if I was lucid dreaming, i was in third person view. The dream was, I had a birds eye view of my self running around in a small fence. I was thinking this is a dream. So it probably was a lucid dream. At that point I started screaming at my self that its a dream. The me running around in the
fence stopped to do a realty check. He only had four fingers and they were blury. I tried to control him but failed. Then the dream ended. Can you give me tips to get more control? Or at least in first person view?

This sounds like you had a very low level of lucidity. Getting control of your LDs will require practice and confidence that you can control the dream. Your dreams respond to your expectations. If you "know" you can do something, you will be able to do it. If you have doubts, you will fail. The more LDs you have the better you will get at taking control. However, I practice with visualization. At night before bed I take a dream from the previous night's dream journal. I close my eyes and replay the dream in my head. I find a spot where I should have done a reality check, and fantasize that I realized I was dreaming and did a RC. Then I continue the fantasy and act out what I would have done if I were lucid. You can then practice your control by fantasizing about it and convincing yourself you have absolute control and can do exactly what you want.

I hope this helps.
