I’ve been trying to get a really good lucid dream going for about 6 months! I’ve often came very close. It seems that every time I realize I am dreaming, my mind gets clearer, but not a whole lot, and I can’t advance my clarity OR stay dreaming for more than 5-10 seconds!
It’s very frustrating of course, but I think I’m prepared to finally get what I’ve been waiting for next time I have the chance.
Anyway… I just cannot imagine going completely lucid as many high level lucid dreamers have described to me. I mean… feeling just as real as reality feels now?! There’s no way!!!
My problem in imagining this is… well… my imagination. I cannot fathom my imagination being able to construct a reality as clear as the one I am in now. For example, if I meet a person, and talk to them for a while and whatnot then leave the room, I typically can’t even reconstruct their face in my head. Perhaps it is partly because I don’t take hard notice of facial features, but I think it is mostly just the fact that my imagination doesn’t handle intense detail very well.
Ah well, I feel dumb for posting such a pointless thread, but I just want to see what you people have to say.
