I've had around 40+ lucid dreams using DILD, but none were at full lucidity. Does anyone have tips that they found helpful for WILD? More specifically, how long should I stay awake when my alarm goes off in the morning?
I’ve never thought of him in a sexual way so why him? And why not someone I’ve actually seen in real life?
I’ve been following him since I was pretty young and before dreaming about him for the first time, I’d never thought of him that way. I’m also not into older guys and almost never have sexual lucid dreams that have real people in them, so the fact that he’s becoming a regular is so random.
And while it feels pretty icky for me to dream like that about a real person, I’m not entirely displeased because apart from my “dream man” (the person I usually lucid dream about, not real), 50 Cent is the first person who I’ve had sexual lucid dreams about where things didn’t quickly turn into a clusterfuck. I just don’t know how to feel
I got into the subject of lucid dreaming years ago during my teens and even went as far as printing various guides and trying them out.
I even tried WILD a few times, although I used to be pretty intimidated by the whole sleep paralysis thing, and as soon as the sleep paralysis began to take over, my heart started to pound out of my chest, I got scared and aborted the whole thing. Or I just was too sleepy and couldn't maintain the concentration and fell asleep.
But sometimes I got lucid during the sleep because of how much I thought about it during the day. Yet I mostly got too excited about it and woke up immediately.
I don't know why, but the WBTB method seemed very promising to me, yet I haven't ever tried it. Maybe because I'm not someone who wakes up easily in the morning.

Last week I got a new phone, and with it came a new smartwatch as a promotion for 5G. There's a default app on it which tracks different physical activities during the day with the help of the wearable smartwatch.
The smartwatch uses acceleration sensors and a pressure sensor to measure the heartbeat rate.
Now here's the thing: It can also monitor the sleep quite accurately and even shows estimated REM phases. When I found out about this, I immediately thought about how I could use that for lucid dreaming.
After some quick searching I stumbled upon another app (Sleep As Android) which is dedicated to sleep tracking only.
The app has a feature which will give cues during the sleep when it detects a REM phase.
Last night I tried it out, but unfortunately I chose the vibration alarm on my watch as a cue, which woke me up because I had seleceted the strongest vibration the other day.
Anyway, I'm so motivated again to get into lucid dreaming and I'm going to experiment with this during weekends until I get some results and post the updates here. I'm thinking of combining this with the WBTB method.
Has anyone tried something similar and do you maybe have any advices on how I should proceed with this setup? I would be very grateful for any advice.
So basically I have a sleep mask with headphones and I hear ASMR to sleep better. Here is my question: Is it possible to get a lucid dream with special sounds or music ? Or to support the chance to get a lucid dream ? And if there are: which one ?
I've had a few lucid dreams, most of which were horrific but the feeling of being lucid in dream land easily outweighs the bad stuff. All I need to know is how long a day/week am I gonna have to put away to succeed with this? And does lucid dreams affect my quality of sleep?
I had an LD today and I asked my subconscious "show me the prettiest girl ever" and turned around hoping to see her and she wasn't there, and I did this a few more times but nothing happened. then I woke up.
(btw i did a few more tests before that. I put a finger through my hand, which was weird to see, i've been doing this reality check very often recently. Also i bit my finger - it didn't hurt, it felt numb in my mouth. I also clapped my hands as a stabilising technique, it worked wonders cuz it kept me lucid when i felt i was drifting off / losing vision, awesome feeling.)
Alright so I have been trying to lucid dream for over a year now. I think I have only had one successful lucid dream, which wasn't even the result of a method, it just passively happened. I have tried WILD on occasion, reality checks in settings that often appear in my dreams (bathrooms and stairs), WBTB and other methods. I just attempted WBTB and was incredibly close to going to sleep, but i laid there for an hour waiting and I never managed to fall asleep. I don't know if I'm doing anything wrong. Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I’ve been fascinated by lucid dreaming for around 6 months now, have been trying but failing to have a proper one as of yet but a few nights ago I KIND OF succeeded?! I was in my room, decided to do a reality check and boom. I was dreaming. I was excited but tried to stay asleep, I was then kind of stuck in a state between dreaming and being awake for about a minute which was really weird. Then I woke up but I’m still so happy that this happened. :)
Any tips on how to stay asleep when you realise your dreaming?
What will happen if you ask the dream to feel longer? Cuz I know you can't actually make the dream longer... but can you make it feel longer? I've heard that some dreams are about 10 minutes but inside the dream it actually feels like a day. So what happens if you just ask the dream to feel longer while you'r lucid?
A little about me and Lucid Dreaming. I have been on and off when it comes to Lucid Dreaming, and yet again I have been somewhat trying. I haven't been doing the RC but know about them, I track some of my dreams but not all etc. But about 30 mins ago I woke up from a false awakening and not sure if I was lucid or not.
I usually get very vivid dreaming during mid-day naps or very early in the morning once I have done my morning exercises. But every time I do wake up from one it seems that I was lucid but I didn't feel like I was. For example, I had false awakenings and even though in my dream I was frightened, I knew in the back of my mind that I would wake up from it eventually.
There were about 7 different times I woke up all doing the same thing, I woke up looking at the same place, getting out of my bed then something didn't feel right so I did a pinch nose reality check and instantly knew I was in a dream and woke up repeating again. The last time I decided to spring my self up when waking up for the next reality check and I woke up for real.
Was this my first Lucid Dream or am I just very vivid?
