Instant Lucidity (works for me)
PostPosted: Thu 14 Jun, 2007  Reply with quote

NOTE: Your results may vary

Basically what I do is get in a perfectly conformable position and relax. I close my eyes and I clear my mind. Then when I feel completely relaxed I picture very simple repetitive images in my head. The idea of this is to make it seem like you are already LDing but your not. I like to picture something like a line of dots with the first dot moving at a fast pace in a circular path to the back of the line (I use better ones but they are hard to explain). If you do this without thinking to hard and not making any movements the thing your imaging will start to seem real and you are Lucid! DON'T GET EXITED or you will wake up. After a while of this loose Lucidity I get into a deeper sleep and I am done.


What do you think about this? Good? Bad?

Hm got nothing special to do tonight, so If I don't forget then I will give it a try. But I am very poor at LDing so I guess it won't work for me, at least not for the very first try and I tried VILD already.
But I am always open for new ideas :D

That is nearly exactly what I try to do, but it never works for me. My problem is always visualizing the image but I use ridiculously complex images... I'll try that tonight!

My Girlfriend does it that way every night. She only dreams LD's not normal dreams. So it is possible and a very good method to become lucid i guess.

I'll try tonight anyway!

Hmm, sounds good to me. I wish there was an easier way to get lucid though.

I'm with Peachy. It takes me forever to sleep. My mind usualy drifts to what I did during the day when I try things like this.

I tried this this morning and it actually started working. It helps walking straight into a lucid dream. If my girlfriend would'nt have woken me up I would still be dreaming right now smile

I'll keep looking in to this..

Is this when you go to sleep at the normal time? or do you wake up after a while and then do it?
