PostPosted: Mon 19 Jan, 2009  Reply with quote

this isnt really a question... its just weird. Every kid that i have talked to about lucid dreaming finds that befor even knowing what it was could go lucid and found it really easy to go lucid. so far i have talked to 8 people including myself and befor even knowing what being lucid in a dream meant, could go lucid. from what ie read on this forum it seems kind of weird that proups of people from all over the world have a ton of trouble becoming lucid after studying how to do it that a group of kids all in the same area can become lucid without MILD or WILD or anything.
im no expert on lucidity but isnt thatr kind of weird?
eh
pls reply

I don't need to do MILD or WILD, in fact, every time I try, I fail!

I wait for spontaneous RCs and LDs...

Lots of people don't even need RCs... it just happens!

RCs are the only way I can LD... doesn't take any practice, just time! (took me a month!)



Current LD goal(s): Erm... have one.

Most of my LDs still today are just total accidents when I realize things don't feel right or I can't remember how I got somewhere. It's been about the same my whole life, just happens to me a couple of times a week now as opposed to once or twice a year.

I have heard of people telling friends about LDs and the friends 'claim to have them' .. but often it can just be vivid dreams or dreams with some apparent control (so not true lucidity)

I agree with moogle, sometimes people will just say that they've had them, when they haven't.

But saying that, lots of people do have Lucid dreams without knowing what they were; there are loads of people on this site who LD naturally and have for a very long time, and then, there are others who really find it difficult to LD. It completely varies from person to person.

However, it would make sense that the people who 'struggle' to LD, as such, would be posting on these forums, as these forums are here to support and give advice for people wanting their first LD. Those that can do it naturally, or don't know what it is, are less likely to come across this site.

lucidity isn't something hard to achieve. It isn't some mental ability that only very advances practitioners gain.
it is a very natural ability that we all posses all the time.
It's very simple
as people grow old, most of them are inserted with limiting beliefs (and lots of them) telling them they can't do this and they can't do that.
they start thinking, believing and 'knowing' they cant
and so of course, they won't
your mind set = your reality
kids are much more innocent, much more in touch with their true selves, with their true identity, origin and purpose.
they have a much lower amount of those limiting beliefs , and therefore can achieve what they want easily.
the thing is that it's not that you have to work on a positive mental attitude that says you can do it.
in a neutral state, that is the situation.
It's NATURAL.
It's only those limiting beliefs that hold you back
that's why if a 9 year old kid goes to school and tells his friends about a lucid dream he had, not knowing about any 'problems' that may arise. They would all have no problem in going home and doing the exact same thing.
Its just a decision to make.

Cheers

No one ever said lucid dreaming was hard; Especially for kids.

If you check people older in your area, I believe you will find they have trouble having LDs, just like most of the people around here.

Yep, LD'ing doesn't need any practice.

All my LD's were induced from me lust doing an RC and realising it was a dream.

Also, other people could be lying to you about those "LD" they've had, just to get attention. neutral
But I wouldn't know..

Most of my LD's don't come from any methods besides RC's. WBTB usually works, but i live with my parents, and they don't really like it when my alarm goes off at 6 in the morning on a saturday... I've tried WILD and MILD, and even some of those stranger ILD's, but so far, none of those have done the trick. Just spontaneous RC's.

Yep.. I agree with TwilightDreamer. Kids have an easier time for sure. I used to LD as a kid, but never knew what it was or took advantage. Now in my 30's, they still come naturally, but less frequent unless I focus on MILD or something else. In fact, I had 3 long LDs in one night, the morning of my 33d B-day, which got me back into it even more. Thank goodness I came across this site, everyone else thinks I am crazy or obsessed. They just don't know....

It's easier for children?
I didn't have any lucidity until my late twenties. I hadn't heard of lucidity when it happened I just knew I was in a dream.

If it was so natural and easy ... once dreamers knew they could do it they would LD EVERY night without effort. Even master LDers can't do that, the LD frequency goes down once they stop using techs.

actually, all of my LDs have been chance, until recently. I never knew what a RC was, other than I often would try and fly. After intense studies, I finally tried waking at 5am, meditating for a half hour, then going to sleep with strong intent. It worked!! I had a willful LD! But many things I read say that if you try too hard, it will not come to you...not true. Only intent is a surefire way to LD as far as I am concerned, either that or wait and wait..

Hah, the LD's that I have had are when I didn't even want them. I find the nights that I tryed any technique were just to help me remember my dream. After that the LD's came naturally and I was having them every other night. I am still quite interested in using the WILD technique tho I have actually "never" chosen a technique to have my LD, they just happen. (I guess I'm just blessed tounge1)

strangely i had my first one when i was only about 12 and i didnt know what it even was, it wasnt until later when id had a few more that i decided to research upon it and realised. I find that when i try certain techniques it just fails i mostly LD from RC's , im always doing these throughout the day, my family think im crazy haha! Although WBTB does work for me too sometimes ^^
