Why such a long time?

Postby LCDAnthony » 02 Jan 2013 23:46

Hey!
I've been trying to Lucid Dream since 11-November-2012. I've mainly been training for DILD's. I do atleast 10 reality checks a day, I mediate most of the time, I do visualizing, Self-Hypnosis.
I was wondering... is it normal to take such a long time? I do this everyday, I don't think I'm trying really hard I'm just doing what I think will get me there. I have never felt discouraged, I still really want to Lucid Dream, and I know I can do it! It's just... why so long? haha

I think for most people it takes 3-6 months of focused, committed effort. Sound like you have that part, so just be patient. It took me over a year, but only focused on it for the last 6 months or so. Good luck!
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? Morpheus
