For all other chat which isn't directly related to lucid dreaming and the world of sleep and dreams.

Believe me, I have gotten a lot out of it but the amount of effort and shear will power is exhausting for me. I just had my first LD in two months of working on it almost every night, sometimes for 2 or 3 hours. I was really getting discouraged about it. I'm really hoping it gets easier, but even if not, it's still worth the effort.

ohh that must be hard. I think I'd give up if it was that hard so I bow down to you on your effort. I hope you manage to find an easier way to do it.

Have you tried to find out in a LD if there is an easier way for you to do it? Maybe ask your subconsciousness eg DCs about it (if you can find a wise one).

Have you tried at all using visualisation of doing it successfully and easily, to try to improve your situation with this? eg at times when not actually trying to do this.. imagine yourself easily doing this.. and try to program into yourself that it is easy to do. (dont try to do it at these times... just program this idea into you).

I personally think its more ability or talent than effort, or simply a state of mind, something you can't just reach by willing. Whenever I do an LD its usually without really trying, I always just pop into it.

I think it really depends on where you are at in your life, how clear your head is etc.
