I think Learn to Fliys link- http://www.dreamviews.com/content/
may be of use to you, looks interesting and I'm going to check it out when I have time to give it my full attention.
I'm not sure that it's something that everyone can do, but I wouldn't say no either- I just don't know! If I remember correctly, I started having a dual awareness of my dreams (actor and
director) and influence on them when I was right on the brink of being in a dream state- that 'in and out' point where you're right on the edge of deep sleep if that makes any sense? Not quite conscious but not yet un
conscious and feeling a sense of pleasantness or unpleasantness as to where things were going and either yielding to the dream state or fighting it... It's been a long time and it was gradual, so hard to pin down what the differences were and at what point what progress occurred.
I can tell you though that if you can achieve it, it's like having two
lives in totally different realities- I love it!
EDIT TO ADD:
Here's a short clip from the lead page of LEARN TO FLYs link:
"Imagine being able to do anything you wanted. Having the ability to do physically impossible things, and things you have always wanted to do.
Well, this is in fact possible, with something called Lucid Dreaming
. Lucid Dreaming is being aware of the fact that you are dreaming, which gives you consciousness. This is the most amazing feeling ever, and it gets better. You can take control of the dream with this consciousness, and do literally anything, there is no limit to what you can do within a dream. And, it can feel extremely realistic."
