"Kitchen Sink" approach to lucid dreaming

Postby lucidinthe sky » 09 Apr 2013 01:42

I threw in everything except the kitchen sink last night trying to lucid dream. First I started with WILD, MILD and finally had a DILD with a WTBD thrown in somewhere in the middle just for good measure. I wanted, begged, demanded, visualized, fantasized, prayed, you name it. Just give me the DAMN thing!

And FINALLY.... a lucid dream! So my advice: just do every technique and then some. Oh and this works too: say to yourself right before going to sleep "from now on EVERYTHING will be a dream" :)

The key to creativity is to remove the watchers from the gates, and realize how free you really are.

You know what really does it? Your will and determination. All those techniques help, but in the end what really gives us lucid dreams is our determination confidence and will. I really want a lucid dream every night, I think about it many times during the day, I read about it, and I know I will have one, and then I have them every night. I do no techniques. I just have them every night because I know I will and I want them badly enough. Some few nights when I don't want them bad enough, I don't have them but then the next night I really want one and I have it. So just be confident and want it:)

Glad to hear that. I need to start believing I'll have one every night; I'd like one every night alright.

This is 100% true. It's all about will, determination, belief that it will happen, etc. The techniques help, but it's really an exercise in shear will. With only a few rare exceptions, I have to want it really badly before they happen. After I have one, I can't help but slack off, even if just a little. Then they don't happen again until I get that absolute resolved, focused desire. There is nothing I have ever done in my life that has required that level.
