Homer caught on only once in one of his dreams, and then he woke up from his lucid dream prematurely as well. It took I believe 10 or more seasons of it for us to find out he was finally capable of lucid dreaming in How I wet your mother, and he seemed to have taught Marge about reality checks and lucid dreaming by the end of the episode as well (it had quite a funny ending). I don't think it would take a user 10 seasons to learn it, but it was obvious it took Homer some time to learn how to do so.
I think i just realized why my reality checks aren't working. So i got two questions. When you do your dream journal and you learn all of your dream signs do still need to continue righting down your dreams. And should i right down my dreams every time i wake up at night so i can recall more, or can i just wait till the morning, cuz i feel like that's why the RC's aren't working cuz i don't really remember that much of my dreams because i only right them down when i wake up in the morning. So is i important, to right down as MUCH detail as possible and everytime you wake up. thxx
Yes you need to continue writing them down, and I would recommend writing them down as soon as possible. OR you could record them on a CD. There is an app on the IPhone where you can speak into the IPhone and record your dreams that way if you wanted to.
In this anime, ghost hound (I wouldn't watch this anime past episode 3), in an episode called lucid dream, the main character who keeps having nightmares and flying dreams, records his dreams by talking about it on a video tape. Eventually, towards the end of the episode, he finally concludes he must be in a dream, so he becomes aware once in the episode. It doesn't quite solve his nightmare problem, but at least from what we could see from his dream journal behavior, it is effective in helping a person to lucid dream.
