Re: Questions about Lucid Dreaming

do you think that Lucid Dreaming could be helpful for me/something that I should consider or do you think I should avoid it at all costs? You want to stop nightmares? You've fortunately come to the right place: I'm sure it will wo...

The cheat for lucid dreams

Having been lucid dreaming for a few years, I only really started concentrating on it a year ago. Since then I've had about 25 LDs, from five seconds up to a few minutes. I never had enough time to become truly adept although I was fairly successful as far as I took it, even if stabilisation could h...

Re: Unrealistic dream signs!

Do a reality check every time you spend more than five seconds reading about or watching a celebrity. That will teach your mind to associate celebrities with reality checks so that when you're with a celebrity in a dream you'll do a reality check and realise you're dreaming.

Vaelian, I hope this helps:

You'll get there. Everyone does – except those who give up. Remember how hard riding a bike was?

Re: Newbie here. Feeling a bit discouraged.

It's better not to rely on apps. Without them, you are getting your brain trained to do reality checks without external help. This means you're likelier to perform one in a dream, where you won't have external help. Every time you look at your phone in waking life, do a reality check for no less tha...

Re: Haven't had a successful WILD since 2012. F***.

If I wanted to get back into LDs, I don't think I'd start with WILD. As our host says, there are easier routes (personally, I go for DILD). But I've just read a book that virtually guarantees the reader a WILD - but, like cheating at sport, via supplements rather than hard work. It's mentioned at th...

Re: Hello dreamers

Hi Iter As you may know, dreams have inspired both the arts and sciences. The Beatles song "Yesterday" come to McCartney in a dream. The structure of benzene came to Kekule in a dream. There are many other examples. But it's important to differentiate between ideas from dreams and ideas fr...

Re: Dreaming about lucid dreaming?

Has something like this ever happened to anyone else? Ha ha ha. Yes, it happens to me quite a lot - last night in fact. A few DCs and I were discussing I Ching and lucid dreaming, in a non-LD. When I woke up, I kicked myself for not taking the hints. I'm quite lucky with LDs so I know another will ...

Re: Lucid dream masks (ie. NovaDreamer)

The Remee is a visual aid which works for some people and not others. Before you spend any money, why not try an audio aid? There are lots of (free) apps that you can set to go off after, say, five hours' sleep that will speak any words you want them to, such as "Are you dreaming?" etc. Ex...
