I sit with my legs crossed like instructed at many places and I usually meditate(or at least try to) for 5 minutes tops because I get irritated especially about not keeping my eyes closed and I don't think I stay focused at all, I always get irritated about keeping my eyes in the right place and keeping them open

Well, I'm going to suggest that you try Third Eye meditation while laying down in bed. Also, I'm going going to suggest that you might try a few other types of meditation that you could do for a bit longer. Ten, fifteen minutes, say.

Well, I'd say do a concentration type meditation one day (Third Eye Med.), then another days to a relaxation meditation. Say, multiple PMR meds.

PMR meditation aren't really for focus. PMRs are just to relax yourself, and your muscles (hence the name (smile

It's your muscles flopping out and detensifying. Like melting icecream. I know what the end product is going to be when I start a relaxation meditation, so I took that knowledge and made My Sinking meditation. (I don't like the visualizations of most PMR meditations...

I've just started meditating in the hopes I'll be able to regain the skill of doing WILD from HI ^^ and to maybe WILD in other ways too. I realised my brain was just too noisy so I get easily distracted lately when I try to WILD and then I just fall asleep without getting lucid cry

How I do it is to sit or lie down and then relax completely for a minute or so while I focus on my breathing and make my muscles as relaxed as I can. After that I might imagine something for a while so I'll get relaxed faster or I just start focusing on what I see with my eyes closed. And I try to not think about anything or if that fails, try to not get distracted by the thoughts that pop into my mind. This usually work for a while until I get down to close to theta. Then things start popping into my mind and I'm having a hard time ignoring them overspannen

I also start getting faint visuals at this time and I might even loose consiousness for a split second. But I should be able to remaind consious with some practice. After all, I've only been doing it for 5 days so far I try to keep each meditation session 20-30 minutes or maybe shorter if I don't have too much time. And I try to do it 2 times each day.

I've already noticed that my mind is a bit more silent during the day now than it's been before I started meditating siiw

I only skimmed through this topic but I don't think I saw a link to http://www.wildmind.org I do a mindfulness meditation that I learned from this webesite everyday. I can't say that it has helped with my lucid dreaming or not but I do like doing it for other reasons. This is a very good website to learn different kinds of meditation.

My FAQs on meditating.

OK Ive began a daily practice with meditating. Do I need to buy a book, or can I just learn from the web? How is it possible to blank your mind? I have concentration on my breathing, but I still have my inner voice chating. Its like my focus on breathing, is layred with my inner voice. How do I know if Im doing it right?
