I cant lucid dream?

Postby Deelo » 12 Jun 2013 15:16

I've been trying to lucid dream for 1 week now. I've been using the MILD technique. On my 1st night,I actually had a lucid dream. I was in my bedroom and was like"Hey,Im dreaming!" and looked into a mirror and saw myself transform. However I woke up after 20 seconds. Ever since then,I havent had any lucid dream. I can recall my dreams pretty easily now. I wrote down all of the dreams I've had. Some of the dreams I've had were pretty obvious that I was dreaming. One of the dreams I had last night was me logging onto Engrade to check my grades in my classes(Engrade is a website that teachers make students go on to check their assignments and grades) and when I looked on it,apparently I had a 215 in my Algebra class(I actually have an 85 in my algebra class),and my Health class grade was a 90 when in reality its an 80. This was quite obvious that I was dreaming. When I woke up I was so mad that I didnt realize that I was dreaming. I've been doing RCs during the day and repeating my mantra as I fall asleep "I will realize that im dreaming",I've also tried to visualize my previous dreams as I go to bed but it hasn't worked. I really want to have a full vivid lucid dream and Im starting to grow slightly frustrated because when I was younger I used to get lucid dreams naturally. Any advice on why this hasn't worked for me yet? Maybe MILD just isn't my kind of technique? Tonight I will try the WBTB technique and possibly mix it with the WILD technique. I would like to hear what you guys think my problem is and how long will it take me to get a full lucid dream?

You don't have a problem. Some people don't get results for months - 1 week is an unrealistic time to expect full length lucid dreams. You could try different techniques, but simply continuing as you as for the time being is also a good plan of action. Once you get lucid more often, try stabilising your dreams before you get too excited.

Im getting really frustrated. I had 5 dreams last night and couldn't go lucid in any of them. I can recall all of them quite easily. Some of them were pretty obvious that they wern't reality and I should've realized that they were dreams. Btw I tried WBTB and I had difficulty falling asleep after waking up and reading up about lucid dreaming.

Lucidity comes with patience. And luck. And for some people after a VERY long time. I've had lucid dreams before, but I am now in a dry spell, 4-5 weeks something. It's frustrating.
But I am not going to give up. The reward is a world in which you can do everything imaginable, and that's totally worth the wait.

Alright guys,Im still trying but no luck so far....I'm not going to give up though. I've been doing RCs quite often. I feel more motivated tonight. I really,really hope I'll become lucid tonight.
