I was on another forum I visit regularly and it is not related to lucid dreaming or anything similar, it’s a forum for an online game. Anyway, somebody posted about waking up but not being able to move, as if paralysed. Anyway this information is not important. Somebody posted about lucid dreaming and I was amazed. Did some research and landed here. I’ve only known since yesterday and REALLY want to experience it. I want to go on a rampage and then break into a supermarket and stuff my face with food.
Now I am still coming to grips with it. How sharp is your focus when you’re having a LD? Does it REALLY feel like real life? Can you really eat things and so crazy stuff?
Anyway where should I start? I’ve read the guide and understand that I need to try and remember my dreams, so I will try and start a journal. Sometimes I remember dreams the next day and they’re quite vivid, I can remember quite a lot. I can still remember some old dreams now. I have never had a lucid dream, at least I can’t remember having one.
WILD - this is where you just relax, keep your mind busy and then you slowly get into a lucid dream? Is this best to try first? Or should I try when I’m going to sleep?
So I should try and remember my dreams and write them down. Then ‘recognise’ when I’m in a dream and do a reality check (look at my hand, look at a book, check a watch)? How can I tell my brain to do this though when I’m not conscious in a dream?
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
P.S. I tried last night, all I can remember is waking up a lot and wanting to check my mobile phone for the time - as a reality check. Could I have possibly almost got there but not realised I was dreaming?
