Lucid Dreaming

2 years, 2 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?

Why don’t you try it and find out?

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!
