Haha I could have used this post a few days ago. I had my first Lucid dream this mourning and it took me 12 days of trying different methods with different mindsets, I almost gave up…
But when I read posts of other Noobs (and posts similar to this one, Thanks by the way ) just explaining their situation, it just motivates me. This is just how I think I did it:
The first 9 days or so I tried HARD, trying every technique I could read about, doing RC’s every 30 seconds, retracing my steps, napping in the day. Then I started reading “Lucid Dreaming in 30 Days.” and I also got really tired of trying too hard. So I just relaxed, and in this book at day one it just encouraged me to just suggest to myself that I am going to remember the dream - and just relax and drift off to sleep like any other night. That night I made more progress than I had made the whole week.
Early this mourning I just woke up (I smelled something burning) then I walked around for a bit and went back to sleep. And I had my first lucid dream.
I just want to say I am glad a site like LD4ALL exists I give you guys full credit for my LD. THanks
