Sterre, it is true that kids are better at having lucid dreams because they produce more of the chemical that puts your mind into the theta state. As you get older, you start to produce less and less of this chemical unless you actively practice "creating" it--lucid dreaming and all that. As for relaxing music, just look up some on youtube. There are loads of great relaxation tracks on youtube.

Sander, yea that could be an awesome way to induce a LD. It would be really cool to WILD into something like that!

Yes, it could work. Just make sure you incubate the dream daily and tell yourself that you will remember that that scenario is a dream before you go to sleep.

The WBTB technique is a method to increase your dream recall. You wake up after a few hours of sleep (4 - 6) and try tot remember your dream. If nothing comes to mind, don't ponder about it and set your alarm to go off 90 minutes later. Repeat. This way you're suppsoed to be roused during REM sleep, the phase of sleep in which you dream. That way, it is possible to remember about 4 dreams per night.

The WILD technique the the most effectieve, but also the most difficult technique to induce a LD. It requires great focus and practice. If you're a beginning lucid dreamer, it's not recommended to try this technique. Try incorporating 15-20 minutes of meditation into your dailey life to increase your focus and awareness.

As for me, i think i had a breakthrough this night. It was the first time i actually did a RC in my dream. Sad thing is that i didn't go lucid after that.. Really bummed by this. I was with my buddy who's been LD'ing for 2 years now and did my RC. I told him: 'Dude, i'm dreaming, check it out! Pushed my fingers through my palm. Then he pushed his finger through my palm. 'Awesome!'. After that i don't remember anything.
