I tried it last night and surprisingly had three connected dreams that were pretty vivid (more than usual). I woke up randomly and did it again and went back into the same dream. Thanks for the tip man, I will definitely keep trying this and see what happens from there. Oh yea, and in one of my dreams, I was asking my teacher if he has ever had a lucid dream and he says he has them every night. Still can't go lucid when I talk about it in a dream, lol, oh well, it was still a good dream. smile


Current LD goal(s): Maintain my lucid dream for a while.

Tried this last night and I just fell asleep like a rock. I did not even remember my dream and the whole thing failed for me, maybe because I did not really do that exercise right.
Gotta try this properly again tonight!

Woke up early this morning and read this thread so I tried the left nostril breathing and combined it with something I just learned from a Chinese cranial massage therapist. The therapist told me to apply pressure on the top of my head if I wanted to sleep better. To find the point start from the top of the ears and go all the way to the top of the head.

Went back to bed and ended up having a long regular dream.

For how long you have to apply pressure?! And how strong has to be?

I think when doing this, you concentrate on getting lucid dreams as well. Therefore, I think that this concentration on lucid dreaming makes you have better results. It's something like MILD.
I wouldn't see any difference in closing your right or left nostril, as they both connect anyways.
You can do anything to keep your expectations active. You can drink a glass of water, saying that this is an elixir, which will prolong your lucid dreams, you can do anything you want.
So my opinion is that our expectations while doing something brings us the results, the action is not that important itself.


Couldn't you have put that into a spoiler grrr

I did it just for giggles because I figured it would only take about a minute and I ended up having a lucid dream, which is my first one in a few weeks.

I need some help with this (the thing that is the easiest LD technique/booster-thingymabob in existance); I can't seem to find a good way to keep my finger on my nose. Basicaly the last 2 times I did this, I ended up giving up, since I couldn't get to sleep any way I tried it. Any advice?

~That gecko guy who keeps posting after he said he wouldn't for a while



Current LD goal(s): Have a stable one.

I've tried the technique, had a pretty long and nice dream.
I'd say lucidity 5-10%
Going to do so again tonight.
Oh and by the way, I didnt think this would work, but it did.
It does make us relaxed which helps tounge2

Quote:
Most interestingly of all, yet another study published in 1994, showed that when you are breathing through your left nostril, the right hemisphere of your brain will be more active or dominant and vice-verse when you are breathing through your right nostril. This can be a handy thing to know as the right hemisphere of your brain is your “creative/imaginative” side, while the left hemisphere of your brain is your “logical” side. So forcing breathing through one nostril or the other can actually affect the way you think at a given moment.

Some of the best dreams come when you're watching a boring show with a great premise and you fall asleep in the middle and dream the way it should go. Recurring dreams are cool too. You can go through the motions to the same conclusion, or you can change a few scenes. Sometimes I like to tell the bad guys that it's a dream and i'll beat them again like I did before. Some of them scoff, some get ticked off so I turn Superman like. That's my built in fail safe when things get out of hand. Even if I still can't beat them ,they can't beat me either.

Sounds like a plan!

I like the simplicity of it, and I agree that simple can a lot of the time mean deep truth. I have read about dream yoga before and if this is one of their exercises it seems like it could be worth a try. I wonder what would happen if you did it with the left nostril? ^^ Anyways, I like simple exercises like MILD and counting and so I am definitely going to give this a try. Thanks for posting it! I'll tell you tomorrow if it worked out for me or not!
