      You can't lucid dream without any effort unless you're a natural. Also, the best way to lucid dream will vary from person to person.

      But, I'm thinking the most simple and effective way to lucid dream for most people would be to fall into unconscious sleep and do a reality check as soon as you regain consciousness. Once you start doing the reality checks fast enough, you'll start doing reality checks while you're conscious during your dreams and hopefully become lucid.

      In order for this to work, of course, you have to develop your awareness of your consciousness and your ability to remember your intention to do a reality check despite being distracted by the dream. This will require some effort, but you're going to have to do this no matter what you do, assuming you're going for DILDs.

      I have to completely second Dolphin. I wanted to try inducing one a month ago, but it took a while. In general, the rule of thumb is that it's most common for people to be able to have a lucid within 2-20 days of trying, but you could be an exception! I managed to have one a couple days in myself (but I already had an extensive dream journal, knew my dream signs, and had had lucids before in my childhood). There's no easy, 100% guaranteed way to do it in a single night, because everyone would be doing it. But there's still a chance that you could.

      Since I started trying, I've had two (four if you count dreams that collapsed immediately after I became aware) lucid dreams in the past month. I'll post in the near future about what I've been doing. But please keep this in mind: Everyone's different, so it's up to you to figure out what works for you.

      Here's what's been working FOR ME:
      - Get excited about it! Surf around on the forum for a bit! I'd recommend the Lucid Experiences forum if you really want some inspiration. If you don't really have motivation, it almost certainly won't come to you. I have to say of all the things I've done, I've found this to be the most effective.
      - Do some awareness/reality checks every now and then. Question where you are, why you're there, where you came from, and where you'll be in five minutes. A lot of people also do reality checks like looking at their hands, but I found that that didn't work for me. But everyone's different, and it's up to you to find out what works for you.
      - Keep a thorough dream journal. If you can't remember dreams very well, your chances of immediately having a lucid are slim to say the least.
      - Learn about your dream signs. If you know what's unique about your dreams, you'll be able to identify them very easily. This has helped me several times in the past.
      - Find a time that you naturally wake up during the night (usually 6 hours in for most people) and use that time to think about lucid dreaming and the stuff you want to do in tonight's one.

      I hope this helps you out. I'll be posting a more comprehensive post in the near future about what's been working for me, but if you gain nothing else from this post, just know that it's up to you to figure out what works. When learning to dream the way I currently do, I used techniques from several different people, and even did some things that would be considered big no-no's by many. It works for me -- but it might not do anything for you (I would hope it does though ).

      Best of luck,
      Jelly

      There is nothing that you can do without putting any effort at all because doing anything requires effort. The reason that people stick on this site isn't because there is one grandiose way to LD and we all just want to try different ways. The reason is because the road is doing is actually quite easy, but the road is long and it is easier to be near people that are traveling similar paths. I say similar paths because no path is going to be the exact same since you are starting with your life, brain, dreams, and experiences. Of course, the paths will be similar to others, awareness, memory, attention, observation, and consistency are going to be on the road to lucidity.

      That being said, there is one way to LD with little to no effort at all, and that is experience. Lucid dreaming may have many peaks and valleys, but it will always be a steady climb upward if you are going the right way.

      This song is a Christian song made talking about the Christian walk, but I feel like it applies to all struggles in life.

      Lying at the bottom
      I can clearly see the top
      Pressed against this firm foundation
      I count none of this as loss

      As I struggle up each mountain
      With every bloody knee
      I am often prone to stumble
      But it's this rock that catches me

      It's this rock that tells me
      That's what valleys are for
      It's from here that we measure
      Just how far we must go
      You don't know how tall you stand until you fall

      Mountains cast a shadow
      At times it's hard to tell
      Will the darkness over take you
      Will you succeed or fail

      Though I've climbed a thousand mountains
      And stood upon their peaks
      I still find my greatest comfort
      From the rock that lies beneath

      It's this rock that tells me
      That's what valleys are for
      It's from here that we measure
      Just how far we must go
      You don't know how tall you stand until you fall

      I would suggest WBTB, (wake back to bed), If you're not familiar with it there's plenty of info around the site.

      I heard that WBTB without trying WILD doesn't make any sense.

      That's not so. I get way more reliable DILDs after WBTB. The percentage chances for lucidity goes way, way up for me. I just don't do WBTB much because I prefer to be asleep during the night. But when I'm on a long dry spell, setting intention to notice the wakings throughout the night is a great kickstart to both recall and lucidity.

      I think that's "easy" to do as in it's "easy" to play Othello: "minutes to learn, a lifetime to master." It's easy to describe and understand, but in order to be able to pull that off with any regularity at all one must build excellent access to memory and cultivate a strong self-awareness. Which are the foundations of lucid dreaming.

      Lucid dreaming is not a discipline where "easy" applies. It is rather much the opposite: there is perhaps no more demanding mental discipline than LD practice.

      Who told you that?

      If you haven't ever had a DILD, trying for a WILD is probably going to be risking missing sleep and putting less intention for DILD.

      Also, WBTB is really really good for DILD, so not using it because you are not trying for WILD is like trying to build a table without any tools.
