Are my daydreams preventing Lucid Dreams

Postby Guitar48300 » 14 Oct 2013 15:53

It's been 2 months since my last lucid dream. And ever since I started lucid dreaming, no matter what I do I usually got 1 per month. Even when I do easy techniques like SSILD I seem to get the same results.
I wonder if my reasons for being unsuccessful is because of my constant daydreaming. From the moment I awake to the moment I fall asleep my mind seems to be rapidly flowing hundreds of thoughts into my head. Even when something needs my attention I will still partially have a song or a game or a plan on my mind. This happens especially at night when I'm trying to sleep or do lucid dream techniques.
When I did MILD i would always be in bed thinking "I will have a lucid dream" and the two seconds in between me saying that over and over something would pop into my mind and eventually cause me to lose focus, and/or I'd finish and then my thoughts would take control.
Same thing when I tried Meditation, Subliminal Audio and SSILD. Could my ongoing daydreams be the cause of my lack of lucid dreaming?

i dont think that daydreaming is gonna cost you LD. in my experience WILD is the only method that demands the peace of mind. if u r doing DILD or MILD or whatever, u just need to recognize wen u r dreaming thats the the main cue in all other method besides WILD. To have LD u need complete faith in u. dont give up, and plz dont try hard ;) u know wat am saying... right.???
I see the Truth now.

I think you are just being too tough on yourself.. one lucid dream a month is actually quite normal for those learning.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

But the thing is they arent really satisfying enough. Lately they are usually 1-2 minutes long, however im gonna rub my hands next time I become lucid, and I rarely get to go anywhere, meet anyone or do anything I want. I recently came up with a plan for the next time I get lucky, but I'm not sure how promising the results could be.
