      You can't expect to have a LD if you can't even remember your dreams. It's the very foundation of LDing, (as is having a stable, healthy sleep schedule) if you can't remember your dreams, lucidity is extremely difficult.
      Start with the basics, build decent dream recall by writing your dreams in a journal. To remember them, as soon as you wake up, lay still, keep your eyes closed and try to remember what you dreamt. Even if it's bits and pieces, write it anyway, it will help. When you remember a few dreams per night you can start worrying about various techniques.

      A couple of dreams in several nights isn't enough. Like I said, build solid dream recall before anything else. At least two every night.

      You can work on MILD and build good habits with it now while building your sleep schedule and recall. RCing throughout the day and visualization. Think about LDing. Repeat your mantra! Lol. Read the threads that they have on here, Especially ones by staff and people that LD a lot. Sign up for the class and keep asking questions.

      MILD is like novacaine, just give it time, just give it time, it always works.

      Also, awesome name. old school.

      You're welcome.

      Well, you could and you should do things as keep lucid dreaming in your mind throughout the day as much as you can, do reality checks, find your dream signs and look for them in dreams, do MILD, WILD, WBTB, etc, but the majority of those would be quite ineffective if you do them with low awareness. Don't go through the day in a zombie-like state of mind, because then that is what you will do in the dream world as well. Get into the habit of paying attention to your environment and your body, question your reality from time to time, pretend you're already in a dream and do it.

      Check out this tutorial for more info http://www.dreamviews.com/induction-...kingyoshi.html
      Also, meditation is useful, try it.

      Dream recall isn't that difficult--or maybe it's just me personally. I know that if I don't pay attention or think about my dreams after waking up, I will forget them. But if you do pay attention, you'll find they stick around in your head throughout the day. Short answer: if you try, I'm sure you can remember every dream you have on that night, or at the very least, some parts of it.

      It isn't hard. Good recall is a must for LDing. Some people never paid attention to their dreams their whole life and because of that they can't remember a single dream. Good luck working on recall! It is good to get around 4+ dreams a night. It is hard to get consistent lucids with less than that.

      It's far from easy, unless you're lucky enough to have a natural skill at this. You'll see for yourself later on. There's no "recipe" that you must follow and after a certain period of time you'll start having lucid dreams. You have to experiment and see what works and doesn't work for you.

      Mind over matter can play a serious role in lucid dreaming. If you honestly believe it to be easy, that definitely won't have any negative side effects. It can only make things easier, if anything.

      I'll level with you: the RCs only serve to form a habit of questioning reality that will eventually transition into the dream world. Since you'd have to be pretty oblivious to honestly not know if you went to bed and started dreaming.

      It's better to repeat mantras throughout the day as well until it better gets stuck in your mind. Because until it does, it's just a meaningless phrase, right? I recommend writing down your mantra several times to better achieve this. This way, there's less distractions and you're more focused and have a stronger intent to power through with writing it multiple times, thus, making it easier for your subconscious mind to accept the mantra and make it true. If you want to avoid hand cramps, just type it out. Either way, write it enough times until you're confident your mind has gotten the point.
