I’ve been having problems with this Lucid Dreaming stuff for a while now, but now that I think about it, I could have been in control of my dreams for the longest time! My question: Is it possible to believe you’re awake when you’re in fact dreaming?
This happens to me all the time just before I wake up, or on car rides where I’m tired. I feel that I’m in complete control of myself (I can open my eyes whenever, get up whenever I want to, etc.), and I realize that it might be the same situation for a lucid dreamer.
