This is my first LD4all post - it’s good to be here!
I’ve had several LDs over the past 6 months, at about a rate of 1-2 per month and felt like I was making progress in stabilising them and increasing my ‘lucidity level’.
However, my last LD was over 2 months ago despite practising RCs, meditation, affirmations, binaural beats, ‘hands visualisation’, reading about LDs etc. on a regular basis.
I’m wondering if I’m ‘grasping’ at lucid dreaming, i.e. wanting it too much and so blocking myself somehow? If so, how can I get back on track? How can I want LDs without wanting them?!
I also wonder if my subconscious has developed some kind of belief and is trying to ‘protect’ me from becoming lucid (maybe it was the Casteneda book and all that business with the inorganic beings). Perhaps my subconscious believes that LDs are harmful? With that in mind I’ve started a routine of positive affirmations about LDs as I drift off to sleep, which is apparently a good time for the subconscious to be in suggestible state. Early days yet…
Anyway, I’d be so grateful for any constructive advice - I’m sure I’m not the first to go through this!
