    Do you know what I mean? If so, please share a cliff note of your first one you remember and how you pursue more of them. As you know, dream control grows as we talk about them, think about them, read write and pursue, immerse in the subject.

    Dream control decreases when we are exhausted or over-rested. I'm exhausted for too long and am fighting back. Few things are more boring than the dreams of other people (except your loved ones) but I can handle the short versions.

    If you don't know what I'm talking about. Dreams reflect your desires and your intentions. They reflect lots of other stuff too, but the point here is if you think your dreams are nonsense, I am positive you are right. Oh man the subject is so deep and rich you should think about educating on it. A third of your life asleep, a handful of full dreams every night, full surround immersion in the greatest virtual reality imaginable limited only by yourself. This is a huge chunk of your life, what will you do with it?

    I once had a lucid dream that I was overthinking everything.

    I don't lucid dream. I have other sleep issues. I used to sleepwalk as a kid.

    Use to sleepwalk as well, though not since being a teenager. My mum claims she once got up and made a cup of tea in her sleep, but find that difficult to accept.

    Lose 120lbs and your sleep apnea will disappear.

    Get a better pair of glasses and 'sleepwalk' won't look like 'sleep apnea' to you.

    Yes, the peak of my sleepwalking came in the early teenage years. When I hit puberty I became an emotional mess, and I think that was part of it.

    I found that if I was awakened while I was up and doing something, then I could remember it. The memory of sleepwalking seems to me to be like dreams, where a few minutes of wakefulness will eliminate the memory of it. It's easier to remember dreams when you wake up right after, or during. I rarely remember all the dreams I have in a night, and when I sleepwalked, if I was allowed to just go back to bed (which invariably happened after a while), then the chances of me remembering it were small. I think sleepwalking is triggered by a dream, at least all the ones I could remember afterward were. I think the things we do when we sleepwalk are things that do not require higher cognitive functioning, but rather things we have developed into habits are the things most likely to happen while sleepwalking.

    Lucid dreams are sign of incoming an illness.
    Special case of a dangerous lucid dream is, when you are aware of bad meaning of your dream while you are dreaming it, and wake up with certified bad prediction.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleepwalking
    (sleepwalkers) perform activities that are usually performed during a state of full consciousness. These activities can be as benign as sitting up in bed, walking to a bathroom, and cleaning, or as hazardous as cooking, driving,[3] violent gestures, grabbing at hallucinated objects,[4] or even homicide.[5][6][7]

    There is no evidence that lucid dreaming is abnormal or dangerous in any way. There are some aspects that can cause fear though.

    Sleep paralysis is a common occurrence, and can be an extremely terrifying experience for people, especially if they do not know what is going on. That's a place where educating yourself on the subject would help.

    The idea that lucid dreaming involves psychic ability (or astral projection and such) is again due to lack of knowledge.
