thanks for the input Lumaza. I also agree that for the most part you should go with the flow of the senario while lucid. what I'm wondering now if you still go with the scenario can you use learned abilitys? and if so I would like to learn some.
As Robert Moss says "Dreaming is waking up".
Yes you can still use "learned abilities" as long as they are second nature to you. Meaning, as long as you already know you already have them and that they are natural to you. Any doubt will knock you out.
don't always want to just completely minipulate a dream. but I would like to experience a lucid dream with 100% control. If its possible how could you get to that sorta level of control?
Try Subtle Traveler's excellent advise. Commands in the "other realms" are very powerful. I stay in the LD with control by allowing myself to become part of it. Like I said, the thought that I am Dreaming is a afterthought. At the time, I am in the scenario as deeply as I am in the current physical scenario right now. It becomes automatic after awhile. You just begin reacting with your current mindset wherever you find yourself.
and how exactly do you become a point of consciousness and what have you experienced there?
You need to be able to separate yourself from your "Human conditioning". This happens with practice and a little help from your "friends". Ask and you shall receive.
I experience immense Grids. Sometimes I experience and explore areas of just pure information. Other times realms of energy, immense lights. It's really hard to describe in "Human term". Be open to everything. Experience it now, question it later. I have found that if you think there is no end, then there isn't. In other words, keep open. Too many times people that experience the "other realms" come to some conclusion what it really is. When they do, they go no further. I see this often, especially here on the Astral Pulse Forums. Once you decide that you "know it all", School is over and you stay where you were. Many times, when I thought I knew what was really happening, it all changed. I kept open to the change and found myself in a more advanced School of learning.
