At first glance this looks like a great forum.
I’m from Liverpool (UK), born in 1969. As you’d expect from a Scouser I’m mad on football and music - In that respect lucid dreaming is great because you can play footy like Dalglish, sing like Scott Walker and play the guitar like Roger McGuinn !!!
Seriously, I’ve been actively lucid dreaming for about 5 years, although I’ve pretty much had them since I was a kid without fully understanding what was happening.
I’ve experienced dreams at a pretty blurred level where I could hardly focus any images and the dreams fade pretty quickly to absolute crystal clear visions where I could smell, taste, hear and feel everything with absolute clarity - the simplest things like blowing onto a window - forming condensation - feeling the cold air hit your lungs then drawing pictures on the pane of glass with the wet drips trickling down your finger - simplicity but exhilirating nonetheless.
Also enjoy flying (of course) and other physical pursuits !! - sadly these dreams never have the clarity of the simpler ones mentioned above !
Here’s hoping I can learn more and enhance my powers (ha !!)
