Intro and questions

Postby TheAverageBear » 22 Feb 2013 02:36

Hello my name is nathan and I just started trying to learn how to have lucid dreams about 5 days ago. I have been doing the reality checks everyday, along with the meditation but as of two days ago i can't seem to remember my dreams. The first 3 days i remembered them when and wrote them down in my journal but now i just wake up without recalling anything. I do stay up late but i get at least 6 hours of sleep. When i try to make it up with an afternoon nap I don't remember that either.

Any help??

extend ur sleeping time to 8 hours for few days if possible. that way u could get extended REM period and a better dream recall. and use WBTB method, after 6 hours of sleep. dont bother to stay awake for half hour, just set ur alarm 5.30 hours of sleep. turn it of wen wake up, go back to sleep after 3 or 5 minute. see if this helps. i recovered this problem by this try it out. it worked for me. oh & welcome to the group Nathan.

I naturally wake up frequently throughout the night which makes dream recall easier. As a general rule, the closer you wake up to when the REM period ends, the easier it is to remember the dream. If you can go back to sleep easily and still get enough sleep you could find a way to wake yourself up a few times per night, preferably timed to your REM cycles which I believe are around 90 minutes (but look that up so you have the exact numbers. Once you start to remember them hopefully it will get easier.

Anyway, good luck and welcome!

Keep on going. Keep on writing those dreams down. It's your foundation. The more dreams you write the more familiar you become with the workings of the dream world.

Once you are solid with your dream recall, start using MILD.

I would definitely recommend getting 7-8 hours of sleep to increase your chances of lucidity.
