I consider myself a natural. After I read that you could not only be aware to control your dreams but to also be able to control them I got to control the weather, the sky and I could fly. I've read it's not that simple to be able to do those sorts of things on your first time.

I'm not really a natural, I have to use techniques if I want to lucid dream, but I think I'm pretty good with controling the dream once I'm lucid (not waking up, etc)

It seems that you didn't get my point! I wanted to know if :
"Did you at any time in your life, got conscious that you were dreaming before hearing about lucid dreams?"
I don't mean being the lord of your dream world, just that "Hey, I'm dreaming" feeling.

I did that once. It was pretty exciting, but I couldn't control anything. Now I just wander what I was thinking not to take advantage of that.

ahh...I see...
A couple of years before, I had a LD (without knowing anything of the matter), I could breath under the water, so I realised it must be a dream, but didn't acted like if I knew, maybe I made some short term decisions, but didn't really stuned knowing that or anything.

I've had one natural LD as a child (which lasted ten/fifteen minutes). I also became lucid quite a lot from nightmares, but all I'd do was wake myself up.

Oh, in that case I've had about 2 or 3 before I found out you could actually practice it. So yeah, I'm still a natural biggrin

This is different from your poll quesiton "do you remember having some kind of LD as a child?"

I would answer the first with yes, the second with no. Thus i answered no to your poll, but I still considder myself to be "natural" since I had several lucids before I ever knew or read about it, but I was over 18.

I see. Yeah, I have had a bunch of natural Lucid Dreams before I knew how to induce them, but I did know what lucid dreams were. I just was't trying to induce them.

I'm not a natural. My first LD happened when I was about 18. Then I had 2 more when I was about 24. And I have to work a lot in order to have LD's...

No, you are a natural if you have had plenty of LD's before knowing any technique... smile

Yes, but I didn't know that they could be fully controlled. Low-lucidity-short-dreams only. I often used WILD after waking up from nightmares since I was afraid of falling back asleep. And now, I've forgotten how to do it. sadblauw But I'll keep tryin'.
