      So it seems i have an issue. I need to try to improve my recall other ways before DJing. Whenever i try to think of something to record, it's just an intangible mess that i can't fully put into words. Are there other methods of Dream Recall that can get me started? I'll DJ as soon as i can, but this seems to be a recurring problem. I'm going to try WBTB tonight since it's the weekend.

      If you haven't yet, have a look at my dream recall tips and "Unified Theory of Lucid Dreaming.".

      Recall is all about attention. If you learn to pay attention to your experiences, all your life experiences (waking and dreaming), with the idea of recalling them later, and practice this on a daily basis, your recall will grow and grow over time.

      Also, a great way to kickstart recall is to train yourself to notice the multiple wakings we all experience every night, and taking that opportunity to reach for dream recall. Form the habit of reaching for recall (and spending some solid time on this, 10+ minutes is very beneficial, more if you can) *every time you find yourself awake*, and your subconscious will eventually catch on and provide you with your dreaming memories.

      Dream recall's getting a bit better. Still have reminders almost every day (almost = sometimes i forget to take my phone off silent after school). Still haven't been able to record anything, but i can tell i'm getting there. I took a look at some of your tips, thank you by the way. i think they'll help. I'll check back soon.

      Dream recall seems very good now, despite the difficulty i have writing things. I actually still remember key points of the dream i had this morning. Found a really cool sword in it. Now it's the weekend so i can try some WBTB or other experiments like Binaural beats or something.

      I'm planning to WBTB tonight. I mean it. I always try it and end up being too lazy to do anything. Not this time. I'll check back tomorrow.

      Okay, i actually managed to write something down this morning. This is a step. I'll start working harder on my RCs, i keep forgetting to take my phone off silent.

      Step by step, inch by inch, whatever you can manage, will keep you moving forward until you are ready for more.

      Dreaming practice is all about perseverance. Stick with it, and keep working on the basics: some RCs and increased attention during the day, and reaching for recall upon waking up. Getting enough sleep and maintaining a regular sleep schedule helps a lot, too.

      Keep going, good recall is just around the corner . I used to be in a similar position to you, barely able to remember any dreams, but once I started regularly reaching for dreams every morning and writing in my DJ every day within a few months I was averaging 2-3+ dreams a night. If writing out your dreams is tricky then drawing little doodles of them can help, even saying them aloud and recording if you want. Even just thinking about them throughout the day, getting into the feel of them and reliving the storylines and imagining how you would get lucid from them can be effective. The main thing is consistency of intent rather than any specific technique; recall is a habit, it takes a few weeks to adjust your brain to want to recall dreams, but once you do its pretty smooth sailing (with the occasional dry spot). Good luck!

      If you still have some time before you go back to school, I recommend making a real push for doing WBTB's as much as possible. Would you be able to do a WBTB 2-3 nights in a row staying up for at least 20-30 minutes (unless less time works well for you)? WBTB can do wonders for having lucid dreams and you mentioned that is what you were doing when you had some success in the past. You got this! I know you can have another…and then another, etc!

      Try to also make sure your phone is not on vibrate and that you really imagine what you will do in your next LD when you do your RC's during the day.

      after summer school's over (August 5th) i still get like a month +2 weeks off. I'll really try to push for it then. You all gave me really good tips, i feel pretty great again. I might try saying aloud what i last saw for recall, even if it's just a few weird details. As for WBTB, i'll try, but whenever i wake up (By use of alarm, otherwise i won't wake up) i usually get really damn lazy. My body does NOT wanna do anything but lie back down and sleep. Thank you all very much

      I hear you about just wanting to lay back down. That is one advantage to the water method, you have the urge to get up and go pee. While up, do something you enjoy perhaps on your phone surfing or checking out Instagram, anything. Even better if it is lucid dreaming related, but right now you are just trying to avoid the urge to lay straight back down and doze off too quickly. WBTB is definitely not the only way to become lucid, but it is a tremendous boost.

      Anything I can help with? I might be slow to respond for the next 3-4 days as I am traveling.
