The dream muscle

Dreaming is like a muscle, the more you exercise it the stronger it gets. I have been practicing lucid dreaming ever since first seeing the movie "Waking Life" (an excellent watch, if you haven't already seen it) probably 15 years ago. 15 years later I certainly cannot say by any means I have mastered lucid dreaming. I have however become very aware of many of my "dream indicators", and spotting these dream indicators as they happen very often for me now triggers becoming lucid. As much as I'd like to say that when I become lucid I can then truly control and shape the dream from that point, but even then it's not so simple. Part of being lucid is staying asleep, often becoming lucid snaps you right awake. The characters in your dream really do turn against you though, like in Inception (they really did nail it in that movie), as this is your own subconscious saying "hey hey, wait a minute, you're not supposed to be down here, get outta here". Every now and then I'll give one of the characters in my dream an interrogation and only once did I ever have one of them admit to me that yes I was in fact dreaming. Anyway, the whole thing is really fascinating. But the more you excercise this dream muscle, the stronger it gets, and the better you get at it. I don't know that anyone has ever truly mastered it.

Have you used it for manifesting something in your life? Since you are able to control it. How realistic are your dreams do they also have feelings.Thanks for sharing useful info.

I see lucid dreaming as a tool in your quest to learn about the wider reality, and not as a goal in itself. You have to integrate it in your system of beliefs.

Lucid dreaming can be used to fit a frame or a slide with things you want to manifest. Like you have already got that things so on so forth. It actually helps.
