Beginner at trying to lucid drea,

Postby Doublea » 12 Mar 2012 06:05

So I just started about 2 weeks ago with trying to lucid dream. I've kept a dream journal and I've remembered 1-5 dreams a night, I usually wake up right after having them. I also do reality checks through out the day, though I think I need to crack down on this a little harder. So any tips or motivation for me? Thanks!

Only tip i can give you is keep at it! Practice, practice, practice! And don't get discouraged if it takes a while; everybody is different. Also, one of the biggest problems beginners have is trying too hard. If you put to much into wanting to LD you could actually be hindering yourself. Go at your own pace and if it doesn't happen for a while, take a break. Sometimes that is all you need to get over the hump!
Good luck!!!

I'll second that. I do think one of the biggest obstacles to having the first one is believing. I know this might sound religious, but you do need to have some faith, but faith in yourself really. I didn't have my first one until I really believed I could.

So I would also suggest spending some time working on this area through meditation and positive affirmations such as "the next time I am dreaming, I will realize that I'm dreaming" and things like that especially right before sleep.

Make sure along with trying hard, you are also believing hard.
Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world? Morpheus

Alright thanks for the tips, I'll be sure to BELIEVE! AND WORK HARD. Here are some of the things I'm planning on doing when I become lucid:

Fly (all sorts of ways! a lot!)
Play tennis with Roger Federer and have him give me some lessons.
Talk to my subconscious animal.

um yeah theres probably some others but those are my top three.

Sounds good! Keep thinking of other things you want to do. Write out a list even! It will help plant the ideas into your subconscious. And not to mention the more things you want to do, the easier it will be to stay lucid in the dream.

You really can't imagine it. It's something that has to be experienced to be believed, but I must say that I don't even really believe it when I'm experiencing it honestly.

In my last LD I had quite a bit of time to think about it while it was happening, thinking about how my body was lying in bed sleeping, but meanwhile, I was in a completely perfectly real world at the same time. Try to imagine that! It's really almost too much to deal with.
