It is a good plan to get lucid dreaming but I was like you before, I was so excited about lucid dreaming that I thought of trying everything at once and I asked the forum if it will be good enough. But they told me that stressing over lucid dreaming will negate it so try little things at a time. I would recommend you to watch the subliminal videos and do some meditation and make reality checks a habit.
Yeah. I think what I just did actually did work. I just didn't do a reality check. (I've been doing reality checks constantly for about 4 days, so I probably should keep doing that longer
) Because, In the dream, it was vivid and I remember it very well, and actually I thought twice inside the dream, "Is this a dream?", but I didn't do a reality check so it looked like my kitchen. I'm pretty sure I was semi-lucid for about 5 seconds, then I just went with the flow, but I still remember all of it
Technically it was lucid
just not fully. So yay! Also, what do you mean trying "little things"? I read things about techniques on lucid dreaming, but no actually tells you like the process. Could you explain a little more how you got lucid by doing "little things"? Thanks!
Also, one more thing. I was given a newspaper article to read by my mom, and I could read it perfectly fine. The words didn't change, and I sort of remember what it said. So I was lucid that whole time, I just didn't realize it!
I just noticed that. So my technique DID work, just I wasn't in the correct mindset.
