I had my first LD a few days ago, after about a month of trying. It only lasted about a minute, but it was such a cool experience. Now I look forward to every night's sleep! :D

First even LD was a long time ago and at the end of a dream, I had been adventuring with some companions to help save a city and soon came to an open area of a temple with a giant hole in the middle of the floor. My mind suddenly concentrated on my steps and I was suddenly lucid because of it, it was a minute long but the dream destabilized and I fell to the floor, I then woke up.

But my latest one was this morning (yay!) that had me in a very foggy place, it only lasted for 2 seconds

I had my first lucid dream in the morning after learning about it. I had been reading dreamviews all night, and attempted WILD when I went to bed, to success.

Although, looking back on it, I always thought it was more like an OBE, because the sensations didn't feel like my later WILDs. I literally felt something leave my body.

I've been deeply fascinated by the subject of dreaming ever since.



Current LD goal(s): Have an SD with that cute little crow.

In 2006 I was editor-in-chief of the school newspaper. We ran a story on LD's, I lurked on ld4all for a week or so and after about 3 months had a lucid moment.

I actually had my first LD before I knew anything about the possibility of becoming consious in my dream state. I was 19 and did an coincidental WBTB on a weekend, and had a good 45 seconds worth of exploring the dreamworld lucidly.

I went straight to the library to research what had happened and learned of the scientific phenomenon that was now proved and accepted as real.

Since then, i've been hooked!

I was almost 19, and it happened by accident because I was quite heavily into meditation then, and initiated a WILD. I'd read about lucid dreaming before, but I wasn't interested enough to try for one. That first accidental one let me see how awesome LD'ing really was.

Getting started

Hey, so I'm new to this thing.. I only had 1 LD when I was about 3.. But back then I didn't know it was a LD. But few days ago this really weird thing happened to me.. I had a dream that I had a LD. But it was just a normal dream. Which is odd tbh.. But anyways, that really interested me so I did a research and I learned loads about lucid dreams. I'm trying to control them, and I've been trying for like a week now, but nothing works and I just have to keep trying... It really fascinates me. Soo... My question is: How long did it take YOU to start lucid dreaming? Did you learn it on purpose? Or did it just come to you?
I really don't wanna give up but I'm feeling it's kind of impossible for me now sadblauw

Welcome to LD4all dragonshrill! bye
As for your question, I think the time it takes to become lucid is different for everyone. I used to have lucid dreams when I was a kid, and "outgrew" them. It was not until a few months ago that a friend of mine reintroduced me to the world of lucid dreaming. It took a month of daily reality checks, reading, mentally preparing myself etc. to get my first LD. Then found myself not able to even sleep much for 2 whole month due to a very time consuming deadline. (worked 16-20 hour days, so hardly any sleep). The minute it was done however I was able to start my WBTB again, and my meditating and I have had 8 lucid dreams in less then a month. For me it helps to focus on attaining lucidity during the day doing RCs and trying to become more aware as to what goes on around me and such.
Don't give up, hang on in there, it is worth the time waiting for.



Current LD goal(s): ~get better at making a healing energy sphere, conquer doubt, fear & negativ

hey dragonshrill, nice to meet you! i'm sure i posted somewhere or other how long it took me to get an ld, but it doesn't really matter, cause it's totally different for everyone. the last thing you wanna do is compare yourself to the next person. posting here is a great way to keep it in the forefront of your mind. having a dream about having an ld is a great place to be i think! i've had a lot of those, and sometimes i wonder if i knew it was a dream more than i remember. good luck! and hope to see you around the boards!
