So since about 2 years ago I’ve been wanting to become an active lucid dreamer so badly, but sometimes I still had some breaks because I was distracted too much by other things etc so that is my own fault, but now, since a month or 3\4 ago I’ve been actively trying to Lucid Dream again.
However, I really get the feeling that I am not getting better at all. I just read about some people on this forum who began LD’ing less than a year ago and they already had more than 50 lucid dreams.
However, I’ve only had around 14. With only 1 LD lasting 3\4 minutes. I’ve never had a longer one than that.
I think that I now at this rate have 1 LD in a month, but I always wake up immediately after becoming Lucid (I’ll try the rubbing hands technique next time).
But that is not really my issue, my issue is, I feel like I am getting lucid not often enough. I’ve been trying to have a good lucid dream for so long.
What would be the best thing for me to do next? These are the things I do\have now:
[i][size=100]-A Dream Journal (I write a dream at least once in 2 days. Is that perhaps not enough?)
-Pretty good dream recall
-Lots of RC’s during the day (And not quick ones but every time I really try to check if I am dreaming, by thinking what I did 5 and 10 minutes ago etc.)
-Read about LD’ing especially in the evening.
-Sometimes tried WILD after 4+ hours of sleep but didn’t work for me just yet.[/size][/i]
-Mantra’s (Tried this only a few times to be honest)
I know I can search the site for new technique’s, but I’d like some personal advice on what’s best to try next
Good news is, I’ve asked 2 recommended LD books for Christmas, so reading those every evening may help as well!
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate any help
P.s.: I am not frustrated or anything, and I even enjoy my normal dreams, but I just think it would be so nice to have more and better LD’s!
