I feel like i’ve done everything I can think of to help me to become lucid in my dreams and nothing seems to work. Once in a dream I screamed this is a dream but before I could do anything I woke right up. The only times I’ve been able to be lucid and know I was dreaming was in nightmares. Most of the time I knew it was a nightmare and try to wake up only to still be in the dream and I was lucid enough to walk up and down walls to test that I was still dreaming then would wake up in sleep paralysis.
I used to have nightmares at least two times a month and since I’ve started working with crystals to help keep the nightmares away and enhance my dreams I haven’t had a single nightmare except once in the last three or four years and I was at someone elses house with no stones when it happened.
I have tried at least twice a week if not more to attempt wake to lucid dreaming and almost done it a few times but I think I get too exited and lose it. I just don’t know if my method is wrong or what. I sleep with several stones under my pillow in a pouch and switch them out with different ones and record any dreams I have and then what stones I used but still nothing lucid just a bit easier to remember my dreams and a bit more vivid and frequent. Yet lately I feel like I’m on a dry spell for any dreams.
Also was seriously wondering what it means if I dream about the same person alot. I almost NEVER dream about people that I see every day it’s extremely rare for me. But I met someone at work and very soon after that I dreamt about him at least nine times in two months. I was with someone for two years and only dreamt about him once. Does it mean anything that he kept showing up in my dreams which were extremely vivid yet not lucid?
If anyone could help it’d be extremely appreciated.
