Unvivid, weak LD :(
PostPosted: Sun 12 Apr, 2009  Reply with quote

Yesterday I had an LD. I rubbed my hands to increase lucidity, but it didn't work! eek2
I tried summoning a DC by expecting it to be behind me. I really believed it would be there, but it wasn't cry
Can anyone help me? If someone has the same problem, then please, do post...
help!

I shouted 'increase lucidity' once because i read somebody did it on here and it had no effect.

I can only suggest try other things until you find something that works for you

Yeah, I saw that someone had tried that, but apparently it doesn't really work, and I am scared of screaming IRL.
I know SP normally prevents you from screaming IRL, but what if you come awake while you're screaming?! All in all, I don't think that's a good technique.
Just ate 2 bananas for vitamin B6 and 3 slices of cheese for tryptothan. Hope it works!

Just retook 1 banana and 3 slices of cheese. I hope I will have a good recall, with vivid dreams and, perhaps, lucid dreams siiw woo
Goodnight everyone!

Same thing here...I tried shouting it, but it had no effect. Only worked one time, but only for a few minutes


Current LD goal(s): To actually have an LD...:(

The fear of screaming IRL is half the reason shouting works in a LD. If you can do something like that without a negative consequence, it's that much easier to fully convince yourself you're dreaming. The best way to make a LD vivid is to do things you fear doing IRL. Jump out a window (I am NOT condoning doing this unless you're absolutely positive you're dreaming), shout loudly, walk through a window, try to jump over 10 feet, whatever. If it breaks the rules of what you'd do in reality, it will make the dream that much easier to remember the next day.

Lots of people find spinning a good solution. It can sometimes result in a new dreamscape, so it helps to renew attention and clarify the dream.

I cover or pinch my nose to guarantee lucidity and it seems to make me a bit more concrete in the dream.

Also, picking up sand and rubbing it between your hands seems to work if you're in that kind of area.

Many times when I'm LDing (Almost half of them)
I can feel the dream wavering. I can feel control slipping, so I just focus on the dream. I don't use any dream powers or do anything that I wouldn't normally be able to do because it seems to make me wake up.

I just sorta stand still, focus on the dream, and if I can, touch the walls or items in the dream until it stabilizes. then I do whatever I want.

The idea is to just make yourself part of the dream. That is why those techniques work.

I've tried everything. Removing the blurry thing over my eyes, adjusting the "dream focus dials", shouting, rubbing hands, holding onto something. Nothing works for me.
