Hi! here’s my little story; I’ve done reality checks about twice a day for the past 6 months, and I’ve had trouble getting lucidity. I’ve only suceeded twice, using WBTB ununtentionally. The first dream was very, very fuzzy; I could tell it was fake and I felt like I was manipulating an avatar rather than having a psuedosensual experience. The second time was very real; it was one of the only dreams I’ve had that felt more real than some days in real life. My dream recall is selective; I remember dreams if I think, within a few seconds of waking, that the dream was noteworthy.
I’ve tried many techniques to force myself to be lucid rather than have it unintentionally happen. There’s a snowball’s chance in hell that WILD will work for me; I can’t focus. MILD doesn’t quite work, I can’t kid myself very well nor stay focused on lucidity for very long. VILD has the same problems, except, in addition to focus troubles, I always want to change my dream/vision ever-so-slightly each time until the current dream varies wildley from my original.
My question basically is, what can someone with a hyperactive, almost AD/HD mind do to become lucid regularly and under control, rather than random times that I fall asleep again?
