I was born with it! I suppose but it was needed to be awakened and aware to me what they were. I've had at least 10 before I joined the site, not knowing what they were.


Current LD goal(s): I want to get better DR and have LDs again..it's been so long!

I had my first two LDs about a year ago, maybe a bit more. The second was actually an unconscious WILD, though I didn't realise it at the time. Then more recently, maybe a month and a half ago, I learned about LDs from Wikipedia and followed a link to this site. I started consciously trying to LD, mosly through WILD techniques, and didn't have all that much success. Twice I became lucid but woke up immediately afterward. Then last night, after trying and failing to WILD, I just repeated to myself, "When I wake up, I'll be dreaming", (a sort of variation on MILD I guess) and almost had a false awakening later in the night. I went back to sleep and in the middle of that dream became spontaneously lucid, and managed to stabilise it and stay asleep. I guess I just had the idea deeply enough in my mind that it decided to happen in the middle of the dream, albeit in a different way than I'd been thinking. I'll try it again tonight and see.

I was a beginner when i came to this site. Didn't know to much about lding. Tried Wild Mild and Wbtb didn't have success with any those. Got fustrated and started rcing every hour while i was awake. That helped get me my first ld. I got my first ld about a week in a half when i joined this site. When i got my first ld i wanted aanoter right away. So i tried a lucid dreaming tape that says, you are dreaming you will know you are dreaming. I set a alarm on my ipod for 4:00 went to bed at 12:30. While i was sleeping i heard a voice that said you are dreaming your sleep. So i did a rc and was lucid.

I read sections on this website. I RCed everyday and eventually I had my first LD. I could already recall my dreams and I already had a dream journal before I found this site, but I didn't know what LDing was.

I really didn't learn it just happened on its own. I had an LD after reading online about them. It was cool, but I had a FA, and I didn't feel like doing that again. A few months later, after waking up, I was just resting in bed. I starting thinking about lucid dreams, but I didn't think to actually try to have one. I drifted off again and had an LD anyway. Now, after reading these forums, I'll probably have another. Maybe not. Who knows.

Good ol' RC's is how I learned. I did probably hundreds of RC's and had LD that night.

Actually, the first quality LD I had came from FILD, but I ditched the F part and transitioned to WILD.

I'm a natural born dreamer! I had a bunch of LD's as a kid, well before knowing anything about them or what they were called.

I became interested in various occult things through high school and university, reading various things. I stumbled across Stephen LaBerge's Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming in the Occult section at my University bookstore. (That seems really funny now.)

Although still interested in the occult, I'm a pretty big skeptic. I know my stuff, but the more I hear/read, the less I believe. LaBerge put the scientific fact behind LD'ing, but more importantly, it was something that I experienced myself. (I'm still open minded about things though, that's where my curiosity comes from.)

Another neat thing, the day I bought the book, I had an LD that night BEFORE I had a chance to read it. smile That's MILD for you. colgate

It took me 2 days to have LD after i seen this forum. But i had some of em while i was a kid. I dont use any technique, just lay in bed and try my luck. Techniques are nonsense to me (no offense to any1 who does them)

I've had some LDs when I was younger but I thought that it was normal, so I ignored it. My first actual LD was one week ago, on my birthday and since then I've had 3 more, but I keep getting FAs, and RCs never work for me (plus my brain is always creating false memory). I didn't really have a problem getting an LD, I had one the first time I tried, but I can't have a WILD, so I'm stuck to MILD, oh well!! ^^
I always looked forward to sleeping, cuz I thought dreaming was the coolest thing ever and I've started writing a DJ since I was 10. For a weird reason I never forgot my dreams and I could control what I was going to dream (usualy flying, I LOVE it more than enything else in the world!!)

So I've probably bored you to death so I'll stop. Any time soon. Really, I'm stopping. Shuting up now...

Similar to Sonic_moronic, I don't do a whole lot to induce them. I do an RC every once in a great while, and I keep trying to WILD (but not with WBTB, so it doesn't really go far). I mostly just keep my enthusiam up. When I do have an LD, I usually notice something amiss and don't even need an RC for confirmation.

I kinda discovered lucid dreaming naturally too. It just clicked when I was four years old and I realized that I could control it all!! turn3 it was awesome, the feeling.

Edit/Addition: droom



Current LD goal(s): Extended LD of 4-Months Dream Time... when I'm crazy enough to try it LOL

They sort of happened , I'm yet to do any of the LD inducing techniques.........

Recently I'm suspecting most of them were FLDs though
