New Wannabe Lucid Dreamer with questions!

Postby chisox8 » 15 Sep 2012 12:57

Hey everybody. I just started getting interested in Lucid Dreaming a couple of days ago. I have known about it for about 6 months, but haven't started really trying until a few days ago.
Anyway, I want to get lucid dreaming as fast as possible, and I think I'm using all the good techniques (I have a small leather book that I write down dreams in, my dream journal, and I've started to do reality checks regularly) so I just have some questions.

1. What is the fastest way to start Lucid Dreaming as a beginner?

2. Everybody says that the key to lucid dreaming is realizing you're in a dream. Everything I read always says to, "check something, look in a mirror, do a reality check" in the dream or something to get yourself lucid. The problem is, I can't ever check something, because I never have the slightest bit of control and every dream I have is always pretty blurry and never that vivid.
Even when I'm doing something I could never do in real life, and I know I couldn't do (in my dream last night, my body bent at an extreme angle, one I have tried to do in real life, and I said to myself in the dream "wait, how am I doing this, I know this isn't possible...", but I didn't go lucid...) I just wanted to know what I could do to make these problems not happen any longer.

Thanks for your help. If i have anymore questions, I won't hesitate to ask. This looks like a great community!

Good dream recall and frequent reality checks will go a long way to building up your awareness. In a dream, you may find yourself doing a reality check out of habit, and go lucid, or you may spontaneously go lucid. You might want to try a technique called MILD to increase your chances of lucidity, Rebecca has an article about it: http://www.world-of-lucid-dreaming.com/mnemonic-induction-of-lucid-dreams.html
