The one time I can actually remember having a lucid dream, I felt excited within my dream because of the fact that I realised I was dreaming, then I immediatly woke up because I was too excited

Do not 						*******					 look in to a mirror while you're lucid dreaming. Really. DO NOT look into a mirror. Jesus Christ is it horrifying.

I heard that you aren't supposed to look in a mirror during dreams. If you do, you will see yourself as you see yourself deep down.

Every time I begin to control and lucid dream, it kicks me out and I wake up. Pisses me off every time!   
   
It happened last night when I turned quarters into covenant ships from Halo, and was about to Pilot an entire armada, but everything kept fading and fading until I woke up..

The only lucid dream I remember having was when I was younger. I was just standing in the middle of my room when I realized I was dreaming. Since this was my first lucid dream that I was kind of exited and just started doing dick all like blowing things up and firing kamehamehas (like you wouldn't have done the same thing). I then took an attempt at flying however I hit the roof of the world and woke up.   
< mfw I woke up

Now people, there is a reason why we don't control our dreams. First, the brain needs to rest, continuous lucid dreaming, causes insomnia and ****** up health. Second ever heard of dream paralysis ? well it's something that will scare the **** out of you if it happens when you are trying too much to get a lucid dream. You wake up, can't move, shadows move uncontrollably, you hear weird sounds like woob woob woob. you get a panic attack and almost **** your self. Don't play with lucid dreams
