@Alaky sorry for the late reply.
Best way is to allow for the extra time in the mornings by setting the alarm a little earlier than you need. Also make sure you get enough sleep, might need to go to bed a little earlier than you would do if not aiming for lucidity.



Current LD goal(s): 6 LDs per year * ND goals - actively incubate interesting/fun dreams

Hi everyone, at the very beginning of my topic I wanna sorry for my english, I know I'm not good at it, but I still hope you'll get my point.

I've been practicing LD and some techniques connected with LD (like mantras) for a week. I know this is not really long, but I've already became lucid (last night). It feels fantastic, but also I've got a little problem with all this. I can remember that I've been lucid for about 20 minutes, and I can feel subconsciously I've done sooo many great things, but I can't remember what was it neutral. I can only remember that at the first time, when I was aware (i did reality check) I got kicked, because I was to much excited. Right after that I did the same thing (reality check) and there I was. Next thing I can remember: I was flying (I remember some buildings with foreign language inscriptions), and then i brought some sun because it's been raining and i dind't like it (I felt fantastic then). And finally, nothing... I woke up or went to the next dream - I don't really know.
How I get there? It is quite like MILD technique, but not exactly. I woke up at night, moved, opened my eyes and wrote down all my previous dreams (to the diary), drank some water and went back to sleep (I thought I was talking to previous dreams' characters).

So here is my question for you: What I need to do to remember everything and every detail of my dreams? eh

ps. I'm not sure if this is right section.

It called dream journal (DJ).
Keep it beside your bed, and use it when you wake up after sleep.

You should write all your dreams, and not just the lucid ones.
Even if you remember very little about a specific dream, write what you do recall. That may be feelings, sound, pictures or a part of the storyline. Anything at all.

This way you will train your mind to remember your dreams and make them clearer.
When your dreams are vivid and (more) easily recalled, you could fully dedicate yourself to lucid dreaming.

Also, when you wake up at night, don't move for a while, and let the dream memories come back to you. Only then should you write them down in your DJ.

I hope this helps wink5

I have a little problem: when I wake up, I don't realize I am awake.

Sometimes I find myself just lying in bed looking to the ceiling and I suddendly say "Oh, look! I'm awake already!" so I just get up and go away. But it seems like I have wasted a lot of time just lying in there and I cannot remember much of my dreams.

The only way I can realize the moment I wake up is when I use an alarm clock.

Any ideas on what I should do? (I don't want to use an alarm clock during vacation)

Do you use autosuggestion?

It's where you say what you want over and over in your mind, until you just know that the message has gotten into the subconscious, where it will be obeyed.

I'm not sure that's the best description, but I believe there is some autosugestion articles in the article forum

Having Trouble Remembering My Dreams
PostPosted: Mon 10 Jan, 2011  Reply with quote

Hey everyone! I just joined the site today smile I recently got into the idea of having a lucid dream. I think it would be very cool, like an art. I've been reading stuff about it, but as I'm thinking to myself-I can never remember my dreams in the first place. I try to tell myself to remember my dream before I go to sleep, but my mind always ends up wandering off.

I will tell you of a dream I had about 4 years ago when I was 12. Could this be a Lucid dream?
Ok, so I don't remember much of it, but I was running from some guy and I was in a warehouse. I remember being able to choose which hallway I would run down and stuff. Sorry, that's all I remember. Is that a lucid dream? Being able to choose what you do?

Ok, so, wrapping this all up-is there a way I can remember my dreams? Was my dream a lucid dream?

Thanks everyone!! I hope to have my first Lucid dream sometime soon!

Well if you look through this site you'll see that remembering your dreams is a big part of the guide so just read that.

And no, it wasn't really a lucid dream. In a lucid dream you would be like "I know I'm dreaming so why am I running from this guy? I feel like flying into my tv now so I can be on my favorite tv show..." or something like that. point is you would know your dreaming and be able to do whatever you want.

Ok, I'll search the site more. I guess I'm kind of lazy in that way wink

Ok, so if I were lucid dreaming, I could've done whatever I felt like instead of just choosing where I ran, right?

Right. A lucid dream is when you know that you are dreaming, and you have control over yourself, and sometimes your environment. If you were lucid, you would have not run, but probably either ignore him, or come up with some entertaining way to dispatch him.
