Lucid dreams eh. Do you ever find the experience of your dreams is limited by your creativity? Lucid dreams seem nice, but do the ever get repetitive? Personally I like the randomness and shock associated with my dreams, and I don't think I'd want to substitute that with a semi-alert form of controlling dreams.Please excuse me if you don't quite understand something I just wrote since I am writing this as I woke up.
Now, I have been doing this for almost a year and a half and to this day I never run out of "creativity".
Becoming Lucid means you have pretty much 90% control over the whole dream. That being said, I have learned the ability to change the area I am at, making objects appear where ever I please, fly above the clouds and then picture that what's below me will be a different place, picture a certain someone and then turn around and they'll appear behind me. ETC ETC
However the thing that I have realized over this time is that it's not always 100% control as you'd think. Yes you are very aware of what's going on and you're controlling everything but once you wake up you'll (most of the time) remember it very well but at the same time it will feel like you didn't have full control. I'm too sure how to explain this feeling but if you were to lucid dream you'd see it.
Now back to the creativity thing, my first 15 or so LD's (luciddreams) were VERY action based and me just running around and blowing stuff up or flying etc, at that point all that stuff came natural and I couldn't really control what to do because that's what I really wanted to do at first. Then after I got tired of blowing stuff up I turned to picturing amazing locations like a reallllly tall snowy mountain like Mount Everest and just flying around and just embracing the amount of detail you are able to create in a LD. Whenever I wanted to change the scenery I would just either picture a door behind me and that would take me to another place that I imagine. To imagine these places I need to have somewhat seen it in real life like through pictures or video so that I don't have to spend so much time trying to design how it will look. I just have to think of who/what I will see and what I am going to do there. After that I just open the door that I pictured behind me and walk through and boom I'm at the place I pictured.
For a long time now, I've been sticking to trying to find out about myself by asking my "dream mentor" straight up questions about who I am and how I feel. I usually get the answer in any form possible like a newspaper flying and hitting me in the head and on the newspaper is the answer. Or it being written on a wall,one of those message planes etc.. What I also have been trying to experiment with is once I become lucid I just sit down and try to just take everything in. Looking at the ground and all it's details,listening to the noises. When I do that it starts to feel so peaceful that the whole scenery that I was at before is way too loud and busy that it automatically switches to a place like a small lake surrounded by cherry blossom tree's kinda like somewhere where you'd think the Buddhist would meditate. It just feels way to un-natural to me because meditating in a LD isn't the same as it is in real life, all the feelings you get are intensified about 5 times. It's extremely hard trying to explain what I feel/see/and do because I don't always do the same thing or feel the same way or see the same things, it's all different and not something easy to explain.
So a TL:DR version, no I can't "run out" of creativity as I can do more than just the action stuff, you can explore,embrace every detail that you see etc.
Now, whenever I'm not lucid dreaming and I have "normal" dreams I can remember them all pretty well almost like a lucid dream. I really enjoy some of the story lines that I get in my dreams ( Everyone has 3-4 dreams per night) because of how much detail it has in it. Some times I just get these weird dreams where I would just be walking down a ally in New York and then just enter a random building and just sit down with 40 other people and listen to a professor talk about Physics, astronomy etc. All my dreams having meanings that very much relate to me. Because I have lucid dreamed so often my mind has been accustomed to not give me anymore random dreams where nothing is done, I now however get stuff that I can "learn" from and helps me through life.
However at the end of the day I choose lucid dreaming over normal dreams. I really enjoy me experiencing it first hand. Most of my dreams now consist of just sight seeing, meditating, and the occasional joy riding of the world's most expensive cars and motorcycles,and meeting every old historical people like Einstein,Nikola Tesla, a few Victoria's secret models
Always feel free to ask me to get on IRC or if I'm there already to just listen to a few of my lucid dreams (I'll try to pick the interesting ones) since they are all amazing to listen to. Just ask 9mmNL
