Impatient Me
PostPosted: Tue 13 Mar, 2007  Reply with quote

I heard about lucid dreaming last year after a guy on my cross country team mentioned it while we were running a long practice I didn't believe him at first so I looked it up well I found somthing -_-

I tried it the next night in school things come natrually well right now anyway I was hoping the same for this. Well I was dead wrong and I'm much to impatient to keep doing somthing which gives little results the only thing I gained was remebering more dreams and I don't like my dreams to much there kinda random (30 day school trip to mars in a cardboard box anyone?)
I've tried it off and on after my first failure but I never keep at it for long any tips anyone.

It can be hard to maintain patience when you aren't getting immidiate results.
But that fact that you remember more dreams positive.
It's the first step to becoming lucid.
If you can't remember your dreams, how could you tell you had an LD? smile
Try to find motivation and keep on practicing.

I did at one point have decent dream recall the second time I had gotten motivated to try and lucid dream I could remember quite a few dreams never saw any connection between them though really so I couldn't use similarities to trigger a ld though.

lately my dream recall has been horrible though i'm trying to get it back up to stat.

Another thing I've used the WILD technique before even though it's generally for more expirenced people I wanted to try all the methods I could. Like way to many other people i've had trouble but I can't find anyone else with this same problem (if anyone knows another topic about this point me to it). I did the counting and almost instantly I get the little color blurs but then nothing else really happens and I keep almost opening my eyes it really gets hard to keep counting and keep my eyes closed I'll probably give up WILD because of it though i maybe should anyone until I can actually manage to get a good lucid dream from MILD.

In mine and many other people's opinion, no dreams are just random. Your dreams represent a part of you. Some people believe that every aspect of a dream is really yourself. Like, say you had a baby or something, that baby could represent your childish side, or whatever. In other cases, dreams can give you a lot of insight on yourself and life. I think it's kind of hard to start lucidly dreaming without appreciation of your normal dreams. I tend to go into a lot of dry spells, lately I've had a lucid dream every nigh for the past week, my last lucid dream before that was last summer. If you make it a habit to tell yourself you'll have lucid dreams, or suggest to yourself you will dream of a certain thing, do reality checks, and all sorts of other things, after a while all of those things will pay off. You shouldn't give up, it takes a lot of time for some people.

Oh, and as other people have said, you remembering your dreams better is a bigger deal than you think. That's really the first step. Try writing or typing up your dreams too, for me, it was kind of hard to keep up with and sort of annoying, but after a while you get used to it. If you do that, you'll recognize certain recurring dream signs. If you can identify the recurring dream signs, you'll have a good chance of remembering them in your dreams and you'll become lucid. :3

Yeah.

Oh yeah, one more tip. I see you said earlier that you try the whole lucid thing on and off. I'm not sure what type of methods you use, but it if you suggest lucid dreaming to yourself every day and do reality checks every day, all of those things will accumulate in your head after a while. Which is why it's a good idea to try every day rather than every once in a while.

Oh oh, and try picking up a good LD book. Like Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge, or Creative Dreaming by Patricia Garfield, ooor The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep by Tenzin Wangyal Ripoche. :D

Would it be that you were riding on the Dark Side of the Moon? :D

I have always enjoyed thinking about the dreams I can recall, I quite enjoy my dreams. I am sure they will become even more interesting once I can unlock the secrets to lucidity in my own mind tounge2

I dedicate much time to thinking of my dreams when I remember them. I'd like to find a way to remember them more easily. This morning I couldn't remember any of the dreams I had that night. Any ways I can assure that I will remember my dreams?
