Yeah, when I try to LD or even get better rememberance, I eat a banana right before bed. In fact, this morning, I brought two, one for that night, and one for the next. I didn't want to leave the banana under my pillow so I put it on the headboard. I got very strange looks.

There is always the option of not bringing bananas into bed before going to sleep, and I hope you're aware of that. Why not just keep them in the kitchen, and eat them there before going to sleep? It makes you appear as much more of a normal person. crazy2

Haha, but sneaking out is a lot harder. The later the easier, but by the time the parents are asleep, it's too late for any hopes of LDing.

Well... I suppose we must all be at least SLIGHTLY eccentric if we're posting on a forum on how to get LDs... hehehe, it'd be so awesome if LDing was common knowledge amongst humans. It may even reduce violence in the world, as people could kill/steal/get laid in LDs, possibly being able to vent stress/have loads of fun stuff/get pleasured, without doing anything wrong!

Feh, it'd probably never happen though...

A... banana?

What exactly is in the bananas that help you have better dream recall? I'm just curious because I'm pretty sure that's teh strangerst/coolest way I've heard recently in ways of improving LD and DR grin .

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure I've read that bananas are high in vitamin B6, which aids in dream recall, and it also increases how vivid dreams are.

Why sneak into the kitchen? Why sneak around? Are your parents anti lucid dreaming? Because if they are maybe you should educate them. Make it all easier for everybody.

Banana's help the vividness of my dreams sometimes... sometimes they don't.
But a variable of stress and stuff will make a difference.
What I mean... you can eat 10 banana's and then have a lot of stress and not had a decent dream recall that night...

umm, why not just tell your parents that bananas contain B6 and that you're using them to increase your chances for LDs?

I talk about lucidity all the time with my parents, and my mom even picks up bottles of B6 for me whenever I run out. As long as you approach it scientifically, no one can really tell you you're weird (well, they can, but we wont tounge2 )

It's not so much as they're anti-LDing, it's just they don't like me rhomping around at night. Also, they keep wondering where all the bananas go. wow

Hm... while I don't exactly plan to eat ten bananas right before bed, I'm not terribly stressed out, so I might try eating two or three tonight and see what happens! :D

Haha, my dreams are pretty screwed up. o_o I keep a dream journal thing, and if they find it, then it'll be really awkward. And it'd be a weird subject choice to start a conversation about. Oh well, I'll be able to control my dreams when they're still being chased by demons! 8D

Just keep the bananas in the kitchen and take them with you when you normally go to your room for the night.

I think they also contain tryptophan, which converts into serotonin when processed in your body.(I think neutral )
