A thread on lucid dreaming
Just had a lucid dream last night and oh was it so exciting! In the dream I just asked myself, wait a minute, is this a dream? I looked around and boom, hit lucidity, yaaaay. It's been a while so it started to fade, but then i tried to prolong it but focusing on the ground and spinning.
Anyways all I've been doing was brief reality checks few times a day and intending on having one while falling asleep. Also i hear to Nova Dream tool works well. Anyone have any other ideas on how to induce them more often and prolong them?

i know a few ways
you can say to yourself - basically program yourself before you go to sleep, "i am lucid in my dreams, i am in control in my dreams," etc etc - basically you can program yourself whenever you want - it might take a while before it works or before you notice that it's working - and calling it "programming yourself" isn't the coolest way to put it - but you really are doing that lol! before you go to sleep just say, "i am going to remember my dreams, i am going to be aware that i am dreaming when i am dreaming, and when i wake up in the morning i am going to remember being aware in my dreams and participating in them consciously" cool stuff!
those are the tricks i used when i was a kid, now i sort of let dreams unfold as they will - but when i was younger i used to do that a lot - lol - it used to be a game too, i would say, "when i wake up tomorrow morning the first thing i will think about will be xyz" it started because i was afraid of forgetting something for school, but when i realized that it worked i thought - oh my gosh i just programmed myself like a computer or like a robot LOL! kind of a fun game to play - but then you can use it for other things too like, "i am strong and protected in my dreams and in waking life" etc, "i am calm in any situation," etc

Keep a dream journal - good dream recall is essential for lucid dreaming.
Incubate a lucid dream - visualize a dream scenario as you fall asleep tonight.
Do reality checks throughout the day - regularly ask yourself "Am I dreaming?"
Explore your hypnagogia - flirt with that borderland sleep state where you see swirling colors and patterns; it's the start of the dream state.
Those are just some basic techniques to begin with and could easily trigger lucidity again

What happens when you can't even remember any of your dreams? I have tried every method possible that I have found to try and remember my dreams from keeping a journal which remains empty for the most part to waking myself up in these cycles to not moving for a full ten minutes in the morning to keep the memories there and everything else in between. Apparently I am not meant to remember my travels haha
