I’ve been trying to lucid dream for a while without too much luck and I thought maybe I could get some suggestions here.
Some background: I’ve been trying to lucid dreaming for a little over a year. I’ve been recording my dreams throughout the last year and a half and have improved my dream recall a lot. I now remember at least one dream every night. Usually I wake up a few times throughout the night and remember a dream each time. I can usually remember a ton and fill pages with details and different scenes from a given dream.
The main thing I’ve tried throughout this time is doing reality checks. I do the one where I poke my palm with my index finger. Every time I’ve remembered to do it in a dream, my finger has gone through my palm and I’ve obtained some level of lucidity. I’ve had somewhere around 10 lucid dreams spread out over the last year. I’d really like to lucid dream more often so I’ve been trying some other things like reading about lucid dreaming right before bed and trying MILD whenever I wake up in the early morning. I’ve also done more reality checks throughout the day, but nothing seems to increase my lucid dream frequency.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I’m very motivated and willing to try other techniques or ways of thinking. I’d really like to be lucid dreaming a few times a week eventually. Thanks very much for any help!
