So, finally after 3 months of trying I have found the technique that works for me! Phew, I was getting to thinks it wasn't going to happen. In any event, I wanted to share this with you guys, the tips you provided really helped. Thanks a million!!!
If you come up with more thoughts/tips on how you do it, please share them. I'm guessing it's like riding a bike or learning to whistle. It's seems very hard when you are trying to learn, but once you do it a few times, it's no big deal.
Oh, just thought of something, don't know if it means anything or not - I am really a visual person. That is like my primary sense. Maybe people who are more auditory might try "hearing" something to get into the dream. Don't know. Just a thought. Anybody else got any ideas/experience on that?
When I'm seeing images (not dreams yet) they are 2D. It's like looking at a picture, which is obviously not a 3D dream. I keep thinking, whenever this changes to 3D I'm in a dream and I can "join in". But I haven't seen that switch. I always see the image fade or change to something else. And eventually I end up with nothing, just laying there, or I end up eventually finding myself in a normal dream. I must have slept through the transition..
So the thought I have is- do I wait until I get 3D and real dream before joining? or try and join while it is a picture? So far when I try "entering" a picture it immediately goes away.
Let's keep at it and sharing any ideas that we come up with.
I haven't had any success at becoming lucid while in a dream (except spontaneously in the past). I've tried different techniques but none have seemed to work. What do you do? I've got that book on lucid dreaming ordered and a sports watch that beeps on the hour to remind me to do reality checks. After I get the watch I might also wear it to sleep at night if the beep isn't too loud and see if hearing it while I sleep might trigger more awareness in a dream. Hopefully it won't wake me up. I am also trying on not trying to hard (ha,ha) We'll see - I'll keep you posted.
The best method I have found is to wake-back-to-sleep. I get up in the middle of the night (about 3am works for me) and watch a little TV or read or post on the computer like this, and after about 30 minutes go back to bed. Then before trying to go to sleep, remind yourself that you want to become lucid and what you want to do when lucid. I get about 1 lucid dream a week using this method.
One night i had kind of a nightmare, but i thougt it was weird and tried a reality check, and it worked, i have tried almost
All the methods whitout results, so if you are patient you will eventually get a lucid dream every now and then.
