      1 Year of Lucid Dreaming

      So Iíve just reached a mile stone recently and completed my first full year of Lucid dreaming! I tried to delve into this subject multiple times when I was younger but never managed to stick with it. So Iím proud to have kept up to my dream journal every single day for 365 days and Iíve recorded some amazing dreams and lucid dreams, both DILD and WILD.

      My DILDs are now a regular occurrence (average 1.5 a week) so Iím overall happy with where Iím at with them but I do feel my progress has come to a halt these past few months. When I first started I was seeing progress on a regular basis and my lucid count kept going up and up with each passing month. Iím wondering if Iíve become too comfortable and Iíve reached a point where I can no longer progress doing the things Iím doing. I appreciate this subject is going to take years to master and I may just need to be patient but I want to keep improving and fine tune my practice. So I was hoping for some feedback about my current routine which Iíve detailed below. I would appreciate any tips or advice you have and hope you can see if Iím making any mistakes or not doing as much as I could be. I feel I may need to just tweak a few things in order to get going again. I look forward to reading any feedback. Thanks in advance.

      My routine -

      Daytime:

      I attempt to do quality reality checks each day and my prospective memory is in a good place where I can remember to do them usually every hour. If I donít, my ability to notice dream signs is also pretty good and I often notice dreamlike things in my daily life. When checking, I stop what Iím doing and become present in the moment. I inspect the environment and look for dream signs and oddities. I then perform the checks. A text change RC and then a hand or nose plug RC. The Problem is, Iím very lazy with checking. On a good day I may do them 8-10 times but itís more likely I do 2-3. Due to this inconsistency I often opt for a more casual RC practice that involves me becoming a little more aware and observant whenever I remember and look out for any oddities that might occur whilst I carry on with what Iím doing.

      Night:

      I try to increase my excitement in the evening by re-reading journal entries, reality checking and reading or writing on the forum. I go to bed at 10:30pm and set an intent to wake up and remember my dreams and remind myself of my dream goals (Beginning MILD). I sometimes do visualisation or meditation but usually find these wake me up too much and I struggle to fall asleep afterward. I find the less I do here the better.

      Morning:

      I usually sleep straight through till around 4-5am and then awake naturally (after 5-6 hours of sleep). I used to wake earlier but I found I was losing too much sleep. I then stay awake and recall my dreams for maybe 10 minutes or so. Dream recall is fine and I can usually remember at least 1-2 decent dreams. I tend to memorise them instead of writing them down. I then use the toilet, do a quick RC and return to bed. I now remind myself of my intention and If Iím lucky I fall asleep quickly and have a lucid but more often I just fall asleep and wake again an hour later and repeat the process. I then wake up finally at 7am every morning (8 hours of sleep total). I repeat my recall process and record in detail any dreams remembered in my journal.

      (I do all this consistently 7 days a week. It only varies when I attempt WILDs which is a subject for another time).
