Newbie Advice - Helpful Hints For Aspiring Lucid Dreamers II

Dreams are often more vivid and sleep is lighter during daytime naps. They include less deep sleep. Doing WBTB at night will also help you with HI and WILDs. I found this topic that might be useful.

i stumbled onto this site about a week ago and have been fascinated with it ever since :grin: . i am only 18 and a freshman in college, and let me tell you, living in the dorms cannot help my situation of hardly being able to LD :angry: . but i have tried and tried again(well as best i can since its finals week) and the best i have gotten so far is about a few seconds of lucidity (is that a word?) :shrug: …anyways with my crazy room mates :beer: it is hard to do any type of undisturbed meditation. so WILD method didn’t work to much…i have yet to try the WBTB…i have made signs to check my reality, and i do often…i have also tried the MILD method almost every night since i have found this site and so far nothing :wallhit: … but i have not given up hope and am looking forward to my first long dance with lucidity :obe:

does anyone have any tips or pointers, i am very determined and trying not to be impatient

The main tip when you begin is enhancing your dream recall and have a dream journal. When you recall about one dream per night, then you can practice MILD/autosuggestion techniques.

i have been able to remember more then one dream per night for a while now, but i have yet to start a dream journal of any sort, ill be sure to hop up on that and thhank you for the advice and such

be easy

I just learned about LD and I tryed it . That was like 5 days ago.

The first time/the first success. Don’t know how I have done it maybe a little of MILD but I became lucid right when the dream started (there was no dream at all , just me near my house) and by flying I was sure I was in a dream.

Upon that time , I succeeded 2 more times and it was always near my house with no ND to start. That was weird.

I am AMAZED at the difference between “actively trying to recall your dreams and write them down” and not doing it. The last two nights I have recalled at least three dreams. As I wrote them down I remembered more and more.

I wouldn’t have remembered any of it if I hadn’t tried to.

Sadly none of them were very interesting :grin:

Well done Nyctersis :content: … don’t forget to pick out common dreamsigns you notice :smile:

Hi All,
This is going to be my first night, knowing what may help me with my dreams, my brother and i have been trying to firgure out how exactly to do it, and now thanks to you guys, i think we can! Even though it may take some time!

Thanks to have joined the Lucid Club ! lol

You will get a lot of pleasure trying to LD ! Thats a whole different world. Try OBE when you will be good at LD.

sigh I need a new dream journal. My old one is full up.

I write in ones with flowers. lol, it was all I could get from my mom, and I’m like, why not. It’s a bit fruity, but, it’s like, go for it :happy:

Mine had little flowers and pink frilly stuff like that so i made a book cover for it, like I did in high school where you cut up a brown paper bag cover the book. So then I could write on it the front cover and put little pictures on there.

I have another hint.

If you are frustrated, the best thing to do is to have a lucid dream. In particular, a very-highly-lucid dream. Assuming that Saturday is your day off, go to bed on friday with your alarm set for 6:00. The moment you wake up, go back to sleep. You may not think you can do it, but you can. Once you go back to sleep, you should get a lucid dream. :cool_laugh: :cool_laugh: :cool_laugh:

I just use a spiral notebook that I scribble/write all over. You don’t have to get anything fancy… but then again, you could get an LD4ALL dream journal. It’s got the old logo, but it does help support this site.

Have you considered starting a virtual DJ, so we can all read your dreams and make nice comments? :smile:

:wave: hey Mezergy! If you feel uncomfortable about posting your dream journal online, why not use Writing pads on your computer, such as Microsoft Word or Notepad?

Many people say that ritualizing the whole DJing experience makes it more important to your subconscious, but I think you’ll be fine with any sort of notebook you can write in. I’ve been able to use random little notebooks I find around the house–stuff that would cost a couple of dollars at a drugstore. Whatever works, you know.

Ritualizing it really works, but you only have to use a fancy notebook if you feel like you need some concrete referential to give it importance.

If you feel you can have any notebook and still look at it and say “this really is important to me,” then you’re fine. :smile:

I love notebooks, always looking at them in gift/stationary shops.
My dream diary has a turquoise hardback cover with a dark pink flower on it. The colours are very blurred and dreamlike. It hardly cost me anything. I write the dreams down in my favourite colour, green incase that triggers lucidity one day. It also looks nice on the page.

Mine’s just a basic school book.

But I’m thinking of making a new book using the computer and loose leaf sheets of paper.
