i loved the guide, im a fall asleep fast/ low motivation:
you said, "to be able to build enough motivation." when you say build up motivation, how do you build it up? like keep telling yourself you can lucid dream.

You might want to try MILD first then finish up with WILD. Try it, it might work for you.

Yes Shroom that was to you. Sorry I forgot to address it to you. As for trying it, I'm glad you did. Hey, "if at first you dont succeed, try again" [and again and againand again]. I'm sure you've heard that saying and I'm confident that you will get it in due time. Did you perform RCs yesterday. Try to do at least five or six a day. It should help. I know it's frustrating grrr but it will definitely pay off. Keep at it. smile [/quote]

Motivation

C_mon:

The best way to build up motivation is probably just to read about lucid dreaming and visit forums like this one.

Also, I am not a regular around here so if anybody wants to address me in particular your best bet is to send a private message. I check my email daily and these forums semi-monthly, you see. smile

They have pretty much the same thing I wrote in the form of a graph. Much easier to read.

That CAT method they mention looks interesting, but a regular sleep schedule is impossible for me. I prefer WBTB+MILD/WILD/both.

I've had so much on my mind this semester that dreams, let alone lucid dreaming, can't even be found at the bottom of my priority list. Even sleep is way down there. Maybe during the holiday break I'll have a couple. Maybe I will even try for one tonight.

While I'm proud you say that (most of that bit being written by me) I have to admit your technique choosing thing has more information. smile

After 5 years of LD practice I must say I sweep between very low and very high motivation, and it can take a long time to build up the motivation. I'm building up again now. I don't fall asleep fast but WBTB is still my favourite method - it requires me to go to bed early though, and that's where motivation comes in. But it's so effective for me I don't really care if I need 30 minutes or even an hour falling asleep after WBTB.

Anyway, this is a great tutorial - it cannot take account for all the individual variations - no tutorial will do that - but at least it gives suggestions for people who have low motivation or slowly fall asleep.

For me it can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 1.5 hours to fall asleep. But usually about 30 minutes or so. And I know that if I fall asleep within 5 minutes then I need to sleep more because then I haven't been getting enough sleep the past few nights. And if it takes more than 1 hour I know I've been sleeping too much

I'd say fast is under 10 minutes, 10-30 or so is average (in my experience that is).
