What you were describing could have in fact been sleep paralysis. If you would've held on for a bit longer, you could've easily acquired lucidity. What I personally do when I reach this point (which, unfortunately, has only occurred a handful of times) is simply open my eyes and what I see is the dreamworld. I'm not sure how to describe how I actually open them other than the fact that I force my dream body to open them.

Anyway, if you do some searching on the forums or even on google or something, there's loads of articles on sleep paralysis and lucid dreaming. Congratulations on the progress! smile

I'm going to test it. (i've been working on my own software, with little luck, so, i'm going to see if yours works better than mine...If i get at least 1 lucid dream, you win.)

Hehe there's no winning and losing. Different things work for different people. How better to investigate new possibilities than to produce something that's never been seen before? You're obviously welcome to try Infinity, but I think you should continue with your program until it's ready for everybody else. If you need a tester or anything like that, I'm just a message away.

Hey, I'm just starting on the Infinity training exercise, and I will be sure to post any results from the training in the future. BTW, if I do have a lucid dream, it will be the first one I've had, ever.
However, I do have one question: Can you upload a file to reverse the curse? I got a little freaked out after listening to the whole of "CurseLucidDreams" #1, and I think I might want out.. sadblauw
Thanks in advance.

Hehe I can understand why that would seem a little freaky. You should see some of the other stuff that this guy does. There are curses that pretty much psychologically embarass the individual. I've yet to listen to them, but they're listed on his website. At any rate, there is a music file that will take any of his curses away. All you have to do is listen to it once. I advise not listening to it unless you absolutely want the curse to be lifted. Click here for the file.

Magic Qwan, good luck! ^^

Thanks, I listened to the file, and had no luck the first night, but I am tempted to try again....

Ok... it has been 13 nights since I've started this program and, with the included aid of other substances such as mugwort, omega-3, and orange juice, I still have yet to experience my first lucid dream. Do I just not "have the talent"? I'll continue on the program but according to your data this is the longest one has been, yes? I've been doing everything that the program has been telling me to and beyond... cry

Hehe there is nothing wrong with you. You are certainly not the first to experience this. My data that is posted on the first post was from a survey dating back to 2007. While it did include over 150 people, that is only but a fraction of the amount of people who have tried the program. I've recieved a few messages regarding slow starts and whatnot.

My advice to you is to take a small break from trying to incubate a lucid dream. You could continue on with the program, but the amount required to do so is just going to keep draining you. If you're confident and feel like you want to keep going, by all means continue, but if you are feeling a little tired and frustrated, just forget about techniques and lucidity for a while and go on with your waking life. Come back a week or two later and try picking it up again with a fresh start. Stress can do a lot to a person and I have no doubt that lucid dreaming is one of those things affected by it.

When you're trying to win a marathon and you get tired, you slow down and keep a steady pace to ensure endurance. Go too fast and you'll wear yourself out and fall behind. Go too slow and you'll forget your purpose. There's my philosophical thought of the day, hah.

I have only had half-lucid dreams before, I hope this program can do anything about that. I'm at Day 2 now.

I see, well these are great programs.
I suggest them to everybody.
The concept of Paradiso intrigues me immensely, but I haven't the level of control needed in lucid dreams to do it yet.

Keep up the good work, you are really doing a positive thing for the dreaming community.

Me too.
Let There Be Light by Mike Oldfield is one of the songs in case anybody else was wondering.
I had to look up what it was after I heard it.

Awesome, I had my first WILD using this program, on day 8. I just laid there and suddenly I got the feeling it was time to do an RC, I looked to the side to see if I could see my nose, but it was gone! Unfortunately I lost lucidity after about 1 minute

But it was weird, I though one had to pass SP when WILDing?

So on day four of my break I spontaneously had my first Lucid Dream. It's interesting that I would have when in normal sleep but I can't with these techniques and such... That wasn't even a result of Autosuggestion.
