Going to Paris. Im not sure if I'd suggest trying to go to another country for a begginer in this as that could be quite a challenge to create a door and go somewhere completely elsewhere throu it which of cause requires a sudden whole dream scene shift and a failure of this could lead to you dropping out the dream. I suggest till you have a little more experience to try things in the dream environment you find yourself in and go to Paris after having a few successful clear LDs. Work on deepening your LDs and interacting with your environment during a dream till your dreams are clearer/stronger.
lol I wasn't actually going to go to Paris; I went there in real life and didn't like it. I thought it was clear as I was using that as an example/Inception reference. I was actually planning on showing up in a small room that I know every detail of and then going from there. I'll definitely try the five senses thing and see if that works.
I'm trying the CAT technique and I think it's working but I'm not really sure. I think it would be best if I just tried the WBTB method for the next week, as that is supposedly the most effective for beginners and it's been a week since my last lucid dream. How long do you think I should wait for results on one method before shifting to a different one? (Also WILD has never really worked for me; I get restless way too fast and I can't fall asleep while retaining consciousness, no matter how many times I try. I'll try to see how long I can keep the image in my head though, and try again, maybe tomorrow morning).
