Then focus your eyes so that you can see, and keep your body still, not moving it for anything. After a while you may suddenly without reason if you are still feeling awake and alert see a bit of a blur of the TV, and will automatically lose focus of the TV. If you are still feeling awake and you see that happen, attempt to move your body at this point and see what happens. If you cannot move, then conclude you have fallen asleep, repeat this to yourself over and over again and prepare yourself. If you can move, perform a reality check (I would recommend the clock)

I would more or less recommend this as an early morning method, and unless like you are willing to rigorously exercise to induce body fatigue until then, you might want to wake yourself up and try that.

Because in fact it is possible to sleep with your eyes open during the other stages of sleep, your body and mind should interpret this as sleeping while you are watching TV if you keep your body perfectly still. As for the watching TV, as long as you keep your mind completely focused on the TV, your body will think of this as random thoughts/daydreams rushing through your head, as sometimes that can very well happen during a stage of sleep, although they are a bit artificial. Your eyes will automatically shut when you go into REM, so don't fret.


Okay, so, about five hours from the time I go to sleep? I'll try this on the weekends, returning to my normal routine on the weekdays. Hopefully alternation will prove successful.

You perform reality checks right? And heres another technique you could try if you want, its called ADA (All Day Awareness) ADA is all about increasing your awareness. ADA does not induce lucid dreams like some techniques such as WILD, but it definately helps you get closer
Step 1: For starters, maybe every hour, stop what you are doint and focus on all your senses and be aware of them and question whether what your doing/where you are makes sense, do this for a few minutes
Step 2: get yourself customed to doing this and start doing it more often to the point where you are aware alot of the time

Having a digital dream journal is a good idea if you don't want your parents to read it. There are a few online websites and you can even try downloading some. Just do a quick google search to find one you like.
If we all lucid dreamed this world would be a better place.

You could just put it under your pillow like I do, or you could just tell your parents not to read it.
But if your still worried that they will read it just get a digital dream journal on your computer, OR even better if you have an iPod you could get this app called Dreamer, dreamer is a digital dream journal and you have to enter in a passcode to access it, it also has an option where it reminds you every hour to do a RC

Or... take the Multimedia approach and get a sketch pad and just draw them out instead of writing them down. I doubt your parents or priests will get mad at you for drawing. If they ask, just say, "I am drawing out my feelings."
Goodbye forever...
I dare you Summer and Deschain, to find where I am hiding, and try to attack.

Yes, I do reality checks, and I have started doing ADA just about half a week ago, and it has yielded better clarity in dreams and greater dream recall.

I'll look into it, but I also am going to log my nightly progress here for the benefit of others like me. Perhaps writing dreams down three times a day will help.... :lol:

UGH PLEASE PEOPLE. I don't have an iPod, or an iPhone or iTablet or iWhatever. The only things that I have are an mp3 player and a computer.

My current pillow is not nearly large enough to successfully hide anything, and my mother feels the need to constantly come in my room and make my bed.

That is a good idea since I am good at drawing (three years now), but the only thing wrong with that is that I don't very often have dreams that aren't entirely dialogue in some vague place standing there doing nothing. But if I do have something to draw, I will.
