I think it might help you if you don’t do it at night when you’re ready to go to bed.

I’ll just give you my personal experience and what works for me every time: marijuana.

If you don’t smoke weed, my advice may or may not help you. But after I smoke, I lay down and listen to “binaural beats” or “theta waves” with my headphones on. You can find these on Youtube.

I then focus on my forehead with my eyes closed, and I relax my body and try to fall into a deeper state of consciousness. By focusing on your forehead, you won’t lose your conscious thinking mind, yet the rest of you will continue to fall into that dream state. Pretty soon you’ll recognize that you’re in that dream state, yet you’re aware you’re there.

Do it during the day, or any time other than when you’re going to sleep for the night.

- Before you go sleeping try to meditate (indeed focusing on the breathing) and think about the fact that you want to remember your dreams

– Every time you remember a dream: write it down, as detailed as possible, even if you wake up in the middle in the night and you want to go sleep again, first write down your dreams as detailed as possible.

– Keep doing this, and be patient. The more you will write your dreams down, the more you will have your daily focus on remembering you dreams and lucid dreaming, the more you will get into that mindstate.

– Remember that it can take weeks, months or maybe even years (although I do not think it will take you so long) to start lucid dreaming. Do not get scared once it happens, just accept it as it comes.

Good luck!

@morgy, basically exactly what @filipek said. Over the summer I started getting really into the concept and I think the combination of always trying to remember every dream and keeping the concept of lucid dreaming on my mind (“I am going to have a lucid dream”) seemed to make it happen. It definitely is unpredictable though, and you really do have to have patience with exactly WHEN you are going to have one.

Took me a few weeks and then I had two within 10 days. I freaking flew around.

I, too, have been hoping to have pleasant and creative lucid dreams. However, the most lucid dream I had was also the scariest. I had taken an Ativan pill (for a muscle spasm I was prescribed this, and it also is to lessen anxiety and help you to sleep)

Anyway, I was trapped in sleep! Even though it was lucid, I had about 4 false awakenings and really thought I had woken up and was telling my dream to my husband… but was still asleep.

Very bothersome.

I’ve had other instances where I am lucid for an instant but have not been able to sustain it. My best luck has been trying to look @ my hands. Also, trying to plant an image in my dream that when it shows up it will jolt me lucid. I used a dolphin once and saw them in my dream.

Marijuana never enhanced my dreaming, and since quitting it my dreams have been the same.

Unless you are truly bored or super curious, I have to suggest letting the dream world do its natural thing because messing around can really have repercussions!!

I wrote my dreams down for two years and now I always always remember my dreams but it didn’t bring me much closer to lucidity.
