      I become lucid by having dream induced lucid dreams * D.I.L.Ds* and for the past 2 months i have only been doing meditation everyday and reality checks every half hour or whenever i can remember.
      I only check my finger tattoos because in a dream i find that they are not there or are spelt differently or have weird symbols.i like the idea to use something that you know will nevrr change in your waking life such as a birth mark or mole...tattoo etc =)

      I do the classic nose pinch and try to breath through and at the same time bite my tongue to see if I feel pain. I just wanna say that it's important that you question if you're dreaming or not when you do these reality checks.
      So you just don't do them on autopilot and except to notice you're dreaming.

      Cheers!

      I do affirmations, meditation, SSILD, WILD. My main RC is epiglottis block, but I sometimes do nose pinch and occasionally do telekinesis.

      I'm a big fan of looking at the sky and checking if there's a huge gas giant and/or six moons and/or or three suns hanging on the horizon.

      Nose pinches and recalling the last time you woke up and everything you've done since is nice too.

      Levitating and flying - although it doesn't always work

      That is, its perfectly possible for me to:
      1. suspect I'm dreaming
      2. confirm the suspicion by flying
      3. enjoy the flying, but forget I'm lucid!

      I try to WILD every once in a while, other than that I don't do anything specific, although I do notice I have more lucid dreams when I spend a lot of time in waking life reading and thinking about dreams. Like browsing this forum. In-dream, when I realize I'm dreaming it's often just a sudden realization, or something just doesn't make sense. I don't do reality checks, I just trust my gut instinct and go off flying or something xD Although I do like to look at the sky, more to see what it's like this time rather than to see if I'm dreaming. My approach to lucid dreaming is pretty laid back - when it happens it happens, I thoroughly enjoy ordinary dreams as well so being lucid for me is like recieving a gift every now and then.

      I've been pretty successful with the finger through palm of hand RC in the past. It's always such a bizarre sensation also which helps really ground my awareness into the dream world.

      The finger checking RC works for me. I look at my hands and if I have 6, wobbly looking fingers, then I am dreaming. I do a lot of other reality checks at least once during the day but they don't seem to come through in my dream.

      Gravity RC is my main way to become lucid, so DILD. For sake of old times

      I realize that something is weird in a dream and use the nose-pinch RC. Occasionally I luck out and get a WILD.

      I do WBTB combined with the MILD technique. I also visualize myself becoming lucid when awake at night and occasionally use supplements. I don't do RCs. When I become lucid it's almost always spontaneous, not because I see something dream like. Occasionally I'm able to WILD but usually just fall asleep. I used to use techniques to stay in the dream like looking at my hand or spinning but have found that my long lucid dreams seem to happen because they start at the right point in the dream cycle.

      I do a WBTB combined with a mindfulness meditation. Become as present as possible. Ignore thoughts and images. Then, after 15 minutes of mindfulness, I lay down and focus on maintaining a mindful awareness. Very key. I also sort of gaze into the distance with my eyes closed as if my eyelids were transparent or even open. I found that this gazing through the eyelids correlates with me having lucid dreams so I do it out of habit. Finally, I have found that strong expectations of success during this WBTB period help me out. My dream journal on this site repeatedly references mindfulness and closed-eye gazing repeatedly in its most recent entries.

      I personally use Castaneda's find your hand technique. It's is a really old one but it works amazing. All I have to do is throughout the day I set my intention (so the dream isn't wasted) and then at night I sit at my bed and stare at my hands and repeat vocally or in thought for maybe 5 min. "tonight I will see my hands and realize I'm dreaming. It works 70% of the time for me. Hope that helps anybody. I learned this technique from Robert Waggoner's amazing book Lucid Dreaming Gateway to the Inner Self. Must buy the book!! Well worth the money

      I used to use the finger through palm approach, but these days it is 'intuitive' where I just realise "I'm dreaming!" for no reason. For further verification I might use the "is text staying still" check.
      Follow my blog Dreamstasia and learn about lucidity!

      Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

      i tried wild mild dild fild throat visualization ....
      but only fild and throat visualization worked, with lesser success rate. then after many failures i gave up. after one week i started to become lucid in my dreams automatically. most of the time i became lucid when i slept 7,8 hours . but its not consistent, and only last 1 or two minutes.
      i am also practicing mindful meditation and yoga
