haha, awesome! I have the feeling FILD tends to give such hazy LD's, at least in the beginning. There should be some nice techs to stabilize and increase the vividness and lucidity at that point, but I should let someone more experienced talk about that There was some talk on FILD in this topic, you might find something that just might help in there... Good luck!

When drumming your fingers, do you keep your eyes closed?

And do you set your alarm for 3 hours after going to sleep?

Yep, eyes closed. And FILD should be done in the middle of the night or early morning when you are really really tired. smile

First post here

I've only had lucids when I have a kid. I just started a serious dream journal. I have yet to purposely achieve lucidity.

Trying FILD with the counting technique on the first page of this topic, tonight.

failure! faulty relaxation. I need a good method - under certain circumstances I can easily be on the border of dreams, but when I try, I'm just too inexperienced yet.

My first goal when I have a concrete lucid is to throw a bunch of leaves in the air, and quickly impale each on a sword

After last night^ I tried the 61 point relaxation technique. What a masterpiece!! I didn't even get to the 5th point before I remember dreaming, but I lost focus and fell asleep. Anyway, now that I know I can relax, I'll try some different stuff. Gonna take a midday nap pretty soon, I've been working out in the heat. Should I use a different technique for naps?

Didn't work for me last night, but my alarm clock is across the room from my bed, so I had to get out of bed to turn it off, so that may be the issue. I also overslept the day before.

Hey, that's pretty good! smile Just keep trying and you'll get there.

Next time you feel your consciousness going to your dream body try to imagine you really are there and try to feel and use your senses. Do this by simply imagining. In this state imagined sensations become really vivid quick and then you have something to hold onto in the dream world as it stabilizes around you.

What i just realized is if i would have done a RC at that moment my consciosness would have been enough in the dream that it would have probably worked (the reality check). i will try that tonight.
