It's funny when you are having that lucidity in a dream and you look at the characters you are interacting with and think to yourself "You people are just a creation of my fancy" but said characters don't bat an eyelid and just get on with their roles! My lucid dream last night was also pleasant. And I had the thought that I could awake myself and see my familiar bedroom anytime I wished - which I assume was indeed the case. I get these stress dreams where I am supposed to be in a horse show in like 5 minutes and my horse isn't braided, I'm not dressed and I don't know my jump course or dressage test. I flail around with this kind of dream for a while, exhausting myself and then suddenly I just say, "Oh, for God's sake, this is a dream. Relax. Go do something else." Or else, I am about to fall off a cliff or someone is about to kill me so I think, "This is just a dream so let's see what if feels like to get stabbed and to actually die or to fall off a cliff and let's also see if I can start to fly while in mid air.". Stuff like that. But I don't know if this is lucid dreaming or just experimenting in your sleep while you dream.
