But during the dream I knew I was dreaming and I knew I could move myself(both inside and outside the dream) and I would have kept dreaming but I knew I would probably fall over and hit my head to my bed frame so I woke myself up (this has happend to me a few other times but never while I was standing up so I knew how to wake myself up) then five minutes later I was lying down on my bed and I blinked again and I sarted dreaming the same dream all over again while also fully awake again. Oh and the dream was where I was in this awsome place with a whole lot of interesting things there like giant tvs and 5 million bunnies but I can't really remember much else about the dream.

I have dreams every night and write them down immediately as soon as I wake up. I used to be able to lucid dream really well but dropped it because of school and such nonsense. I am starting to be able to get the hang of it again. Advice for those who want to get lucid completely, write down any dream once you wake up. Keep a notebook right beside you. Keep the scenes in your head, like a story. You don't want to get yourself down and demotivate yourself. Now the first major step to lucid dreaming is knowing you are awake. During the daytime, pinch yourself or write the word "Awake" on your hand and constantly look at it. It may be annoying but once you start dreaming, you'll have the habit to doing it within the dream and you'll instantly know you are awake and have complete control over the dream. As for the dream itself, don't freak out and immediately think to start flying or something. It will wake you up. The excitement for it is rather large, you want to move about and learn your surroundings. Explore the world a bit, sit down and look around. Don't run or jump about, that will wake you up too. It'll skip scenes and make the dream just a big blur as well. Enjoy your dream.
Now that you get the idea of the dream world functions, study each scene within the dream. The crazy stuff, if there isn't much craziness, just try your best to remember each detail. Even if they don't seem normal, try and look closer. What is the color of the walls, does this place exist in real life? Once you start doing that, you'll begin to think critically in your dreams. It will get you to begin having "natural" lucid dreams rather than the fast, skipped, in your face ones. Lastly, don't expect a lucid dream every time and especially don't expect them in the evening, especially as a beginner. It won't happen. Lucid dreams happen great when you wake up early and go back to sleep. It skips all previous parts of sleep, which you usually don't remember or dreams don't occur. It puts you straight into REM sleep ( Rapid Eye Movement sleep; fifth of the five stages of sleep most people go through each night ) which is the best for dreaming. Now this advice may, or may not help you. These are techniques I've gotten from websites and made up myself and personal experience. As for lucid dreams myself? I've had bizarre ones, some I don't bother to share because I have no idea what was going through my head lol. But, I've lucid dreamed about being a merchant, of being an elf, I've even dreamed about being in a zombie apocalypse and saving many people. I'll have to dig up my dream journal and share a few but typically though, the dreams I usually have I convert into art or stories. Some dreams I've even made into role plays right here on TamaTalk.
I'm always afraid to lucid dream though....my dreams are often scary and extremely realistic.
Once I had a dream where I was trying to frantically run up the staircase to get upstairs in my house, but I kept falling so I had to literally drag myself up by crawling. Every random amount of seconds a nose and mouth, paired up, they would appear in dozens and all at the same time whistle the "casual I'm doing nothing" whistle. Then they would disappear. Also like in Super Mario 64 DS in Boo's castle, there was music kind of like that....you could hear the silence, almost like you could hear things moving that weren't moving. Like the house itself was breathing. And then at the top I looked into the hallway and wound up in my uncle's mansion-like house. It was so scary and I ended up crawling into my cousin's room, sitting in the corner and crying while a thunderstorm started. I love thunder storms so much, but they're so immensely terrifying (they cause so much damage)....my dreams are either absolutely wonderful, involving my long-time celebrity crush Julian Casablancas, or they're extremely scary like that one.
And you're right, in my lucid dreams I always up and start flying....ahahahah I get SO excited!!
Oh, and I just remembered one other mildly lucid dream I had--
Well, at the stable where I keep my horse, there are around 29 other horses and ponies. I went outside onto the back deck one night, and I was looking around the backyard. Several horses and ponies had escaped from the stable (it's about 2 miles from my house) and were in the yard. It was so scary, because I could see every detail on the horses....even the Paints, who have intricate patterns. One pony, Pony Boy, was closest to me along with a blind horse named Junior. Then another horse Annie was nearby, and I reached out to Junior and he started to turn away. I thought "This is a dream, I can make him come over to me" and he turned and put his muzzle in my hand.
I wound up in one of the pastures (Idk how though) except there were no trees, and it was right next to the road, and there was also no fence. A bunch of horses were standing around. They seemed so blank, no life in them. It was like there was nothing in them. Nothing whatsoever. They were empty. Almost like puppets, figments of my imagination. It was so bizarre.....they were staring around.
Anyway, I'll start pinching myself and reminding myself that I'm awake.
I'm afraid of lucid dreaming though.....it's just so bizarre.
You see, once I get a bad thought in my head, I try to stop it from becoming something scary, but because I try to stop it, it turns into some horrible terrifying thought.
And there's no way I can't think about it in the first place xD
