Been a while since Ive been on this board, but throughout my time away ive been actively trying to LD. I’ve had a few this school year, flying around, having sex, but all were very short.
One question before i get started; the other night as i was falling asleep i was remaining concious and focused on my third eye. Images began appearing and eventually i fell into a more clear view of what was going on in my head (images). I then noticed a twitching of my eyes, some sort of action under my eyelid and realized that I was totally concious and aware that I was in rapid eye movement. It was so weird, and I’ve been telling my friends about it ever since. Just wondering if that has happened to ya’ll, and if there is anything else behind it.
Back to my topic, I have lately had trouble remembering my dreams, even worse off i have trouble remembering things in real life. Names are a longshot unless i feel a good connection with the person. I’m never one quoting a movie, just because i cant remember what exactly happened, sometimes even with the plot. Point is, i think my memory is not as prime as it should be for a 19 year old.
Ive been smoking weed since i was in 10th grade, now its probably a once of week type of thing. And ive been drinking 1-3 times a week since beginning of the last school year(College). Has anyone with similar habits experienced a poor memory? I am interested in understanding what to do to improve my memory which i feel will dramatically help my real life, but as well, help me in my quest of lucid dreaming.
Reading books? Special Diets? No more pot? No more drink? Any suggestions?
