I've always had one problem that really annoys me: I can't remember how or when I fall asleep at night. It just happens... I've read in some of the articles in World of Lucid Dreaming that you can put affirmations and visualizations into your mind when your just falling asleep to help with lucid dreaming. The only problem for me is, as I stated before, I don't really know when I fall asleep or how it feels, or I just can't remember it. All I know is, I'm lying in my bed one minute, and the next minute I'm getting up in the morning. Sometimes I don't even relax (or don't realize or remember I did) and poof! There I am, suddenly sitting up in bed with my alarm clock ringing. Has this ever happened to you? And If so, how do you fix it? How can I actually realize I'm falling into the world of unconsciousness and recognize that cue to start the affirmations and visualizations? Sometimes, very rarely though, I sometimes feel a falling sensation which I've learned recently is the sensation you feel before falling asleep. Unfortunately, it's such a startling sensation I usually jump in surprise, feeling like I'm falling off the bed and there goes an opportunity for sleep.
