You can disregard my advice, so I'll just wait until you report the successful lucid dream.

God bless you.

I didn't disregard your advice, but the way you spoke like that about listening to metal before sleeping seemed like you were trying to inspire fear into me as if the boogeyman would come to get me in my sleep. I don't take such things seriously, but my my sincere apologies if that wasn't the case.

Also, I've been doing reality checks and last night tried listening to one of those trippy music videos again. Besides a weird and pointless dream about being abducted by funny looking aliens in pink outfits (which I refered to as the people in pink) I believe I may have had a false awakening because I remember waking up at about 3 am or 4 am but I have no idea if I were dreaming or not. It's pretty common for me to wake up at such times and usually I remember it the next day, but this time I feel like it was a dream. Hopefully that's a sign or something that I'm getting closer to lucid dreaming?

hello,

that 'false' awakening sounds good, do you remember doing reality check while this 'false' awakening ?

If not, then my suggestion would be to do more reality checks, but now, while doing them, really mean what you say.

like stop with everything else and think/say it like you mean it: "am i dreaming" - act like you are really concerned while asking this.

another suggestion is, to check what were you doing while this false awakening.

this is the reason why you should take notes on your dreams:

what were you doing at the time of the false awakening ? what was the setting, what were you thinking while it?

Now try to find similarities in your Waking life (if you were in a room where you spent most of your time go there) and do a bit changed reality check:

Add, to whatever you normaly say, something like "when i am again in this room, i will know that i am dreaming and will have the control of my dream"

Do this additional thing whenever you find yourself in that room again, like stop, do the check and then continue doing whatever you do,as if you haven't done the check.

here are some videos

The rule of the thumb is to have the music at around 20% or less of volume, so that you may still understand what the voice says, but where you have no strain to understand it.

For no voice videos 5% to 10% are optimal. (depending on the volume of your pc) - it should be very low, but still hearable.
That's for the case, in which you actually enter the OBE state instead of lucid.

Good luck.

I didn't do a reality check because I was convinced, whether I was awake or dreaming, that I was really awake. I remember looking at the clock and falling back asleep again. I already try to do as many reality checks as possible, but I often tend to forget it because I keep getting distracted by my daily business. However, I will definitely work on it because my desperation is big.

About the videos, am I supposed to fall asleep while listening them or am I supposed to listen to them shortly before going to sleep?

Thanks for your message again and sorry for my late reply.

Hello,

Sorry for my late reply,

u should fall asleep while listening to them (if you can fall asleep with the headphones on)

If not, then try to put them off, but do not make too much or too fast movement, as you should try to keep the relaxed state, without thinking activity.

Ive never found use in reality checks. I dont think u should just flip a lightswitch to see if its a dream. Its more of being in the moment, checking if your brain is there.
Its not possible to urgently master ludid dreaming. I think trying new methods is the best bet. Like beginners lucid luck. The first time anyone reads about it, they have one that night. At one point i found that leaving the light on helped me notice dreams. Recently i heard about the finger method FILD. It s˘unds stupid (how did i just do that 'o'?) but ive read people swear it better than any method.

Also, last night I watched dozens of subliminal booster videos and even went as far as to humiliate myself by forcing myself into listening to peaceful heavenly music before falling asleep which I was told will give lucid dreams, but it was to no avail. If anything, all this useless stuff I attempted last night rather completely wrecked me since I was unable to sleep for pretty much the entire night at all. Heck, I can probably sleep much better after listening to Amon Amarth or Immortal.

So are there any methods I left out that are guaranteed success, and/or is there anything I may be doing wrong? Any help will be appreciated.
Ho-ha-ha he-he-hi-hi. you are desperate to watch lucid dream. It can be mastered only by remembering that you dream lucid. For this yu need not do exercise for it. just remember that you are sleeping and the dream you will watch may it be lucid or general.
