I'm back again! Someone posted on this and it reminded me on my email smile

I think I finally realized my one enemy--what is preventing me from attaining a lucid dream:
Doubt.

I am not skeptical...I believe in everything until it is disproved (except scientology.. i'm sorry, no offense.) But the mere fact that there is a chance in this mundane reality where anything is possible is so mind boggling to me, deep down I'm probably doubting it lol. But I so want it to happen...

I am still able to go back into my dreams after waking, but I just need to make myself lucid somehow. I've noticed that usually i'm in third person when in a dream, or when I reminisce about a dream, which makes it harder for me to control myself, you know? I mean how could I control my dream if I'm not even in my dream body..?

I hope you guys are still out there!

I am going to try this technique in combination with U-WILD!!! When I am waking up I will not move and then flash all sort of images in my mind. I will try it tonight and see if it makes a difference!

yeah lolpie, it IS kinda hard to stay still... I mean seriously, you get up and all of a sudden you're supposed to remember to not open your eyes and stay still. It's tough.

I realized that if I go to sleep early enough, I wake up an hour early..haha no surprise there.
I should try it sometime.

But still, is anyone else in third person in their dream?

I'm gonna try this, I just hope my mom doesn't come and try to wake me up. She's done that before right when I wake up and am trying to recall dreams so I have to move or else she won't leave me alone and then I don't remember my dreams.

that is pretty awesome i actually did this exact thing last night before i even read this..it was that dream that made me sign up here for the forums.

i dont know how i became lucid in my dream but i remember that i was in my old house lookin for my ex-girl friend and i kept wakin up. frustrated i just layed still with my eyes closed and poof seconds later i find myself in the exact same place i was and just as lucid.

i think im gonna try this method tonite when i go to sleep cuz it seems like it would work better for me then most other methods ive tried.

oh and one other thing that dream i had was the first time i used a RC altho i already knew i was dreaming but i wanted to see if u really could keep breathing while holding your nose shut...next time im gonna try the finger through the hand that sounds pretty kool as well

I was REM chaining this morning... I kept hitting the snooze button on my alarm and between each 9-minute interval, I had HI (without attempting WILD)... so I could probably try it.

This is something I experience many mornings, and I often try to enter a LD when I do but I don't actually think much about it. If I combine it with MILD I could probably get it better.

It is very very hard to describe this state of mind, like the dream will begin to appear but you think your still awake etc...very strange but I am really glad I saw this topic. Going to start making it work.

When I wake up, I roll around and open my eyes later, I keep forgetting to not move sadblauw
