Problem is...I still don't see hypnagogic imagery or similar. I look at my closed eyelids and all I see is blackness. No shapes, no colors, no sounds, no weird emotions...nothing. help me i really want to lucid dream and i just can't
Maybe there's too much disturbance in the background? Noise and light irritates me and I can't get any result, so I just end up sleeping without attempting to go lucid.
But trust me, you are not stupid. You'll lucid dream eventually.
"i completely shut down my inner monologue so NO thoughts pop up. My mind is clear as undisturbed lake. "
That is probably the issue.. you are putting yourself into a certain meditation state rather then the LD state. That state you mention, I used to be able to be in it ALL night and still be in it the next morning when daylight comes without any LD. It isnt the state I need to be in for a LD.
To go into a LD you dont need to completely "clear" your mind but you rather need to "let go" of your mind. Let go and allow it to drift into random free flow thoughts. Doing this will help create a dream if you keep also checking in with your mind so it dont just go drifting in to a non lucid dreaming state.
or you can try to get into a LD by observing your physical body as you fall asleep.
*by checking in, I mean by doing something like asking yourself occassionally "are I dreaming?" bringing yourself back to your goala at times).
If trying too hard is the issue.. after trying a while, then tell yourself you are just going to allow yourself to go asleep but try to do it with the strong hope you ay wake up in a LD. Sometimes I find if I do this where I wasnt successful at LD before, at that point I do sometimes find myself in a LD.
hypnagogic imagery or similar
Note everyone who does WILD gets HI, some just go straight into the dream.
