Shouting "increase lucidity"/"lucidity x1000" helps for someone.


The only reason I don't do this is because
1. I don't really scream in real life, So it's uncomfortable to me? whatsthat
2. I don't want to wake up screaming.

Spinning helped me, screaming didn't seem to do anything.

But once I lost lucidity in middle of an LD. I noticed this when i woke up because in my dream i started to bite on Styrofoam o.O

For me i recently found that closing my eyes and focusing on what i just saw combined with envisaging what it should look like (aka a proper wall that isn't melting into a blur of colour) while remaining aware of the room around me helps a lot.

It has been 6 nights since I discovered this website. This last night I had my first lucid dream (DILD, by the way). The odd thing is that the moment I asked myself if I could go back to my sleeping body I inmidiatly saw that everything was black in less than a microsecond, and I found out I was awake when I opened my eyes. From when I asked myself to when I opened my eyes took less than 1 second, and I cursed myself for getting out of my dream before wanting to. Has this happened to anyone and is there a way to prevent it?


Current LD goal(s): achieving a steady sleep schedule, then getting proper dream recall

Arghh grrr I've had over 50 LD's and still only one which was longer than a minute.
Lately I've had very short LD's followed by FA's, and I always forget to do a RC...
...Been practising dreaming for almost a year, and I've never done anything cool I really would like to do.

My problem isn't waking up from a LD, but forgetting that I'm in a dream. Both times I've had an LD, I'll be in a normal dream when suddenly I realize that it's a dream, and I go lucid. It doesn't take much to distract me though, a DC calling my attention to something that was happening in the dream, usually, and then I forget that none of it is real. Any suggestions for how I can remember that I'm dreaming after I've realized it?

I had my first LD about a week ago and right when I figured out I was dreaming I got really excited and had a FA so I decided to do a RC anyways. So I tried to put my finger through my hand and it worked and I was like eek2 then I too excited and woke up for real *head/desk*
But I think it was pretty good for my first try ^^

It was a very good first LD! Congrats!

For me to stay lucid i rub my hands together while saying, "this is a dream" occasionally.
