Just a tip, if you don't use your DJ you probably won't even catch your first LD. IF you don't bother to try and remember dreams and get better recall, who knows, you may be having your LD's already but you just.. don't remember. Such a thing happened to me, I went through the whole day but then luckily I was able to have a flashback of my LD and I totally forgot about it the whole day when I woke up. Something just triggered the memory, and I was so upset because it was a really cool LD. and I couldnt even remember it.

This.
Probably the best reason to use a Dream Journal.
A DJ doesn't even need to have anything to do with "activating lucidity", the ability to actually remember your LD's is clearly very important.

It's like in real life - you can have the best moment of your life while it's taking place, and still forget about it ten years later.

When you are in this forum you should try to speak english... It looks like your language is french (maybe I'm wrong), there is a french forum here: http://www.ld4all.com/fr/forum/

i agree with every one else, just keep trying.
but on the bright side, you recalled having 13 dreams in one night! thats an achievement by itself. ive recently started LDing again, and i can tell you i seem to remember only about a tenth of a dream.



Current LD goal(s): increase vividness of normal dreams + dream recall

Most people don't see this... but how fast lucidity is achieved is not determined by the person, but by the mind. Believe it or not, ability is 90% mental. It may be the body that's trained again and again, but it is the mind that pulls you through it.

Self hypnosis is a HUGE tool for obtaining lucidity because it makes you highly suggestive. The key to lucidity is BELIEF. I saw a post... someone was told a word by a dream character in a lucid dream, and whenever he wants to lucid dream, he says this word and his dream that night is lucid. This is complete belief... it became truth...

If you believe you can lucid dream whenever you want... you CAN. Convince yourself of this the same way you did with the possibility you could be dreaming at any moment. Aside from belief is commitment. Don't get down if you can't lucid dream at first. This will push you down into thinking you can't lucid dream, which is completely FALSE. You can lucid dream, keep at it and just know the techniques you are using become more effective the more faith you put in them. When they fail, put more faith in them.

If this seems far-fetched, look up psychosomatic death.



Current LD goal(s): have 2-3 lucid dreams a week

That's the spirit. You are doing good.

My first LD was after I practising this: http://www.ld4all.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=44022

Try it. It's fun to question your reality in dream point of view ^^



Current LD goal(s): Want to talk to my subconsciousness
