Problems With LD

Postby wispulation » 11 Jan 2015 22:11

OK, I dont know what it is but im getting worse at LD. I havent had a LD since September (apart from natural ones) thats 5 months! Ive tried everything WBTB WILD FILD, Im not exactly a beginner at it all i need are some tips and tricks something to help me achieve another lucid dream
Thanks
P.S I don't like Subliminal Messaging or Binural Beats I Wont use them or supplements because I dont like the idea of something changing my Mind or Making me more relaxed
To achieve a Lucid Dream you have to believe you CAN Lucid Dream

One problem at a time, I guess. I nearly forgot that two months ago I was crying like a baby to myself, because I was unable like you to have at least one! Now I have the problem to stay for more than a few minutes lucid. :(

First, don't disappoint yourself by taking too seriously other experiences on the web. I don't say they are fake, but they might give you the impression it is too easy. You also need to be more patient. It's been many months too for me to do it just more regularly, but I still cannot control so many things, so I am a beginner, anyway. You have to give time in that kind of things. They don't come easily. You tried the FILD technique, uh? I haven't tried it myself, but it seems too easy to be true!

Start to work the MILD technique. I believe it works better. But, if you remember you dreams anyway, tell me what are they about. What place, time they are happening and are the dream characters from the place of your work, school, house, or somebody irregular? Could you also inform me about your daily routine?

I need more information, if you are willing to give. I did the same questions to myself and it helped me to realize way more often whenever I'm dreaming. :)

And what do you mean by natural ones? Regular dreams? Because, it seems that you mean "natural lucid dreams".. :/

Just thought I'd add, Sometimes, trying too hard makes it harder to become Lucid. I've had trouble already becoming lucid, and when i just kind of 'let it go' I became lucid that night. But the thing was, My mind wasn't on lucid dreaming, because i wasn't really worried about it anymore. I haven't had much trouble since. Longest I go without LD's now is 2 or 3 weeks maximum. Might help you, although I doubt it, because it sounds like you're already somewhat experienced, so i would just keep trying easier methods(like DesertExplorer mentioned, I too find the MILD technique to be the easiest, however WILD's are good for having LD's sooner. If these techniques aren't working for you, perhaps you need to improve your dream recall, or maybe make sure you're doing the techniques properly? Just some suggestions, that'll hopefully help ya' out some.
I found this site to be very helpful with discovering different techniques:
http://best-lucid-dreaming-techniques.com/
(I started the Reward/Punishment Technique, and it works great! Only been doing it for about two weeks now, but it definitely has been helping!)
Also, right here on this website, are tons of great advice and details on different techniques. :)

People at times can just go throu dry periods with this (Im currently going throu a dry period myself thou Im not trying at all currently to LD but sometimes I dont even have to try and still would have a lucid dream about once every 2-3 weeks).
The only thing to fear is the fear itself
