When dealing with a fully-realized lucid dreaming, requisite knowledge is not limited to entry techniques, deepening and maintenance of the state, translocation, or finding and interacting with objects. In order to feel comfortable, a practitioner has to master or at least acclimate himself to a whole series of techniques to correctly react in any number of situations. For example, a practitioner needs to know how to create vision, if it is absent. Actions including passage through a wall or taking flight in a deep lucid dreaming do not happen easily, although these actions may be assumed natural occurrences, since lucid dreaming exists apart from the physical world. In addition to techniques that allow interaction with the physical setting and surroundings of lucid dreaming, methods must learned and applied to counteract fear if it forces a practitioner to consciously and consistently leave lucid dreaming.
A practitioner does not have to know all the primary skills by heart, but it is necessary to pay close attention to some of them: emergency return, creation of vision, translocation through objects, and contact with animate objects. For many, skills dedicated to fighting fear will also prove extremely relevant.
The final choice of methods that require added focus on the part of the practitioner must be made on the basis of personal experiences and problems faced while in lucid dreaming, since different practitioners often have completely different types of problems.
