Hey, I'm Kavya, I go by Kavy, and I don't really remember when I found out about Lucid dreaming but I think it was last year or the year before. I don't really know. And I've tried doing it a few times, and it was really difficult. Because it's difficult for me to stay still, without moving, and I'm scared of sleep paralysis. And recently I'd been reading more about lucid dreaming, so I could understand it more, and I read about the different techniques. And I've tried doing it yesterday but I'm not sure if it worked or not. I'm still new at this stuff. I started keeping a dream journal this morning.

also dont forget you cant move your eye balls also now if you think of sleep paralysis as scary or negative it will be my first sleep paralysis was just tv fuzz thats all my second my bed was shaking but remember thats sleep paralysis it wont hurt you physicaly your mind can make it seem completely real like my second sleep paralysis my bed was shaking i could even hear the metal frame shaking too felt the vibration and opened my eyes a little to see and my bed looked like it was shaking but thats all and in real life it wasnt just something your mind fills in because it doesnt know how to deal with sleep paralysis now there are certain techniques and things where you dont have to stay still like the senses induced lucid dream technique waking up out of rem sleep (you can experiment and find your rem sleep time) then relax and passively be aware of each of the 5 sense individualy for about 20 seconds each and do this about 3 times and then just go to sleep this heightens the chances of a lucid dream a lot
also cutting out caffeine is not good because caffeine can shave 1 to 3 hours of rem sleep off (depending on how much you drink stuff like coffee sweet tea etc) and rem sleep is need for lucid dreams now you are probably wondering how do i track my rem sleep times well its easy but takes effort so example my rem sleep times start at 2 am and end at 7 am so what you do is wake up 4 hours after you fall asleep and try to daydream if you start to go into really really deep daydreams and almost fall asleep then thats the start you can wake up at different times to test so to find the end of your rem sleep wake up at like 5 to 8 am and when you wake at some time about 1 or 2 hours from waking up and you try to daydream and you fall into a daydream and then you snap out and fall in and snap out and fall in without trying and the daydream you must physicaly hear it when you fall in to a really deep daydream if you fall in and out then thats about the end of your rem sleep but dont forget when doing it if it seems you are hearing your day dreams then thats means some time around rem sleep and falling in and out of one while trying to do it means end of rem sleep
