Lucid Dreaming

2 years, 5 months ago

Recently ive heard how amazing lucid dreaming is and i need to experience it for myself. Is it true that all you need to do is keep a journal of your dreams and make sure to write them down every morning?

Is it that easy or is there something more to it?

I have been trying to have lucid dreams as well. I did maybe a month ago for a few seconds but then I woke up because if it, so that is what got me so interested in trying it to make a not to try to lucid dream again. I try to think every night right before I go to bed that I am about to sleep and dream. I try to make a concious note of it. So far it has not worked for me. Good luck. If u find anything that works for you let me know :-)

set your alarm for 3:30 in the morning. Get up, drink a glass of water. Go back to bed. Watch the faint fuzz on the back of your eyelids until you fall asleep. Easy lucid dreaming!

You will have a dream in about 30 minutes, likely vivid and lucid. Sometimes not, but many times, YES!

@healingchime, Is there a certain amount of hours to sleep before you wake up? I’m only asking because I usually fall asleep around 1-2. Should I set the clock for like 5:30 then?

yes, 5:30 would be better for you. I think you want to get your first sleep cycle all the way done, and that takes 3-4 hours. I’m not an expert but have seen a few good youtube videos. There are some crazy recommendations out there, but I’ve found “early wake up” to work the most often. Sometimes it happens without planning when I have to get up to answer natures call.

also, if you never take naps, (I never get the chance), then a late afternoon nap can trick your body into dreaming very quickly. But it only works when I’m not expecting it. I rarely take naps, but when I do, about half the time, there is a few minutes of lucid dreaming going on. Good luck and have fun!

Worry is the fear of how you will feel emotionally or physically when a particular situation goes south. Fear is just negative power of imagination. It’s not real.
