How did YOU learn to LD? - Part II
PostPosted: Wed 27 Feb, 2008  Reply with quote

<mod>This is part II of the "How did YOU learn to LD?" topic.
Part I
dragon </mod>

I think I might have first learned lucid dreaming as a way to deal with nightmares, but I'm not certain, as I was very young when I first began lucid dreaming. Back then, I only had lucid dreams about once every few months, but over the past couple years, I've managed to increase that frequency to once every few days by using auto-suggestion and reality checks.

I have always LD'd...I never knew what it was until I found this site... I'm very lucky actually, its a shame that not everybody can naturally do it..one person at my school paid £299 for a machine that gave him LD's and it doesn't work that well either...sadblauw

I found out about it on www.psipog.net, then started reading www.dreamviews.com, writing a DJ and doing RCs. Had my first one after 3-4 days. It lasted a couple of
seconds and then I had a FA. angry

I'd already had several lucid dreams on accident as a kid, and at that time just saw them as a way to occasionally have superpowers. Never really knew about the concept of lucid dreaming, and at the time I didn't actually think it was possible to dream more than once or twice a month. Yet somehow, I managed to accidentally realize I was dreaming once every year or two. After awhile, one of my dreams really got my interest, and that's how I ended up finding this site.

Well, first I was on Wikipedia ( bow ), looking something up for school. And as such, the temptation of links was irresistible. So, I eventually found the page on lucid dreaming and Googled it (bow). Then I found this site. An d have been trying to LD since then.

I am fairly new here, and have had about 6 LDs so far (in the last 6 months or so)
The main thing that led to LDs for me was journaling EVERY dream I had, even if it was just a snippet I could remember. I think this was a BIG bridge to bringing awareness to dreams and "building a bridge" from waking life to dream life. I also fall asleep saying "May I awaken in my dream and grasp the fact that I am dreaming..." to myself. I also think reading this forum helps to get LD-ing into the psyche.
When I don't do these things I mentioned, the LDs go away.

EDIT: PS Stephen LaBerge's book is VERY helpful too....

I had an LD about two years ago and didn't know what it was so I googled 'controlling your dreams' and then I got here and found the necessary information that I needed to induce my first LD. BTW I use MILD.

During August. I was reading the dreaming entry on wikipedia randomly. I saw a link to lucid dreaming. I clicked it, youtubed it, then ended up here. Ive tried lucid dreaming since kindergarten but I didn't really understand the concept. Just thought I could fall asleep playing a scenario and then dream about it. But I've had a few lucid dreams before visiting this site.

I was eight years old.

I had a dream about being at a crowded picnic.

And just as clearly and suddenly as any thought, I realized I was dreaming. It wasn't shocking, it wasn't breathtaking.

It was just a clear and confident feeling of awareness. I casually went around telling my dream characters I knew I was dreaming. They reacted the way most people do when a child has something to say that it's proud of.

After that, I randomly LD'd but I didn't know what it was called.

Finally, Stephen LaBerge was in the national news introducing the world to his pioneering of lucid dreaming and his Lucidity Institute.

I took it and ran with it. My mother hated it (as she hates mostly everything) but I didn't care.

It was a real turning point in my fascination with dreams and I've never really quite gotten back to that saturation of interest, that openness to what the LD field promises... much the way we never recapture the sparkle of a first love, or rediscover the wonder of a fairytale when reading it the second time.
