I learned how to LD by reading the Lucid Dreaming wikibook by R3mot ^^ . At first, I tried MILD for a few months, without success, and then WILD, which I still haven't had any luck with. My first LD simply happened. One night I decided that I simply couldn't LD and gave it up on the induction techniques. Surprisingly, I had my first LD that night. It seems that I have a better chance of having a lucid dream without induction techniques. eh


Current LD goal(s): Have an LD lasting 10 minutes by August 8th

I learned to Lucid Dream from the dreamviews forum. The method I used was WBTB, ( I kept falling asleep and waking up)

I can't believe I haven't posted in this topic before! Owell here it goes:
I first visited sites over sites in search for techs and advice, then i stumbled into EWLD, and it was love at first sight ^^ read it in a jiffy, and that's pretty much what got me started. To this day, i still look for new techs/pointviews to improve my LD ability.

I never really "learned it"; It has just happened at some moments. Not actually sure how, but my dreams would become clearer than normal (so darn clear I had trouble distinguishing them from reality), and then I'd pinch myself to see if I was dreaming or not -- and voila! I knew I was dreaming, and freedom had been acheived. Awesomeness ensued.

Uhm yea I never learned. I was a natural thats all. Been doing it since I was 8, thought everyone else did the same thing. then my friend comes up to me and asks me if I know im dreaming when I dream and thats when I relized what it was called and not everyone did it. So now I am researching and practicing to make my Lucid Dreams better and to expierence them. So far I had Ice Cream, Mermaid, School, Baseball famouse, Books, Inks, School Bus, Lost, Funeral, party, whales, saving sister from ocean by my sisters pellow. Haha thats my favoritee!!! I saved her when we were on whales being chased by sharks and then We came to shore but she was no where to be found so I saw my sis pellow and stepped on her and saved her! lol

I think my first LD was WBTB. Hard to rememebr though because i've been LD'ing on and off for 3 years. I found out about LDing because I was interested in my subconscious mind. Once I started creating a dream journal my dream recall and ability to LD improved significantly. I've found that if I set my mind to LD'ing I can get one about every other day. I just have to keep the intention in mind throughout the day that I want to be aware that i'm dreaming. That and having good dream recall.

Nightmares and dream journal, I guess
PostPosted: Fri 15 Jan, 2010  Reply with quote

I don't know, actually... I just started to see them now and then as a child, and during the years I've had more and more of them eek2
But I guess one really important thing is, that I have written down my dreams since... like always. Not every single dream, but every even a little bit interesting dream. There has been times when I've been too lazy to write my dreams down, and then I've seen much less LD:s, so I guess, having LD:s is strongly related to keeping a dream journal, at least for me!
And like some others here, I've learned a lot about LD:s in my nightmares, where I really need to do some extraordinary tricks to avoid creepy dangers...

One night I had a natural LD without knowing anything about them, when i woke up I had absolutly no idea what had happened. I eventually had more and more so I told my friends and one of them had heard about LDs and explained what was happening and how to prolong them, he was a little angry as he had been trying to have them for a while unsuccesfully and I had had them accidentily. I started googling it myself and found this forum wich has been amazingly helpfully.

As I child, I would occasionally become conscious that I was dreaming, but I didn't know what to do with that knowledge except wake myself up from nightmares. A year ago, I heard someone mention "lucid dreaming" in my physics class and looked it up online. It opened up new horizons as I learned it was possible to control my dreams and interact with my subconscious.

That means... we have the same birthday. woo
LOL, abit off topic,
Well~

One of my [best] teachers , told me about LDs,
Forgot about that because I thought it was too much trouble,
Found out about it again after some time, again, forgot, too much trouble,
Than that summer I started working for a show, which I suggested that will be on dreams,
I got deep into the topic, the LD thing got back, again,
I started my DJ, and started researching and reading like crazy.
After around 24 days of journaling, finally, I had my first LD, at the 28th of September.

Now, here I am, after about five months and 26 LDs, and much much more to come. smile
