      Smile Best lucid dreaming method for a sort-of newbie?

      I have been keeping a log of my dreams as of late, usually having about 3-4 dreams that I've wrote down per month since March. (I only tend to write down dreams that I find interesting.) Thing is, I've had dreams that were really vivid and intense but haven't been able to reach that full awareness and take control of the situation and change it to what I want. I used to be able to be good at doing WILDs and WBTB back in my high school days a few years ago but ever since going to university, my schedule's been hectic and I haven't done much lucid dreaming since. What do you guys think is the best, preferably easy method to get myself slowly back into lucid dreaming? Also, how often do you do reality checks? I've done them in the past but they never seem to carry on into my dream?

      ~Thanks for anyone taking the time to answer this. I appreciate it.

      I'm just gonna go ahead and say it, there is no "best method". Everyone is different and what works for others won't work for you.
      Your just gonna have to start slowly and find the techniques you want to practice and do them whenever you can. I think I can't emphisize this enough, you really have build your way up slowly and the lucids will come with practice eventually.
      As for RC'S(reality checks), here is a good guide to get you started:

      Hope it helps, and welcome to dreamviews

      Best techniques for beginners are DILDs & MIlLDs along with WBTB
      WBTB slightly boosts chances of lucid dreams mixed with other techniques.

      I think to some degree your lifestyle may dictate method. I am so busy during the week i can't dedicate the time and focus i should. I tend to go lucid toward or on weekends when i can work up more focused intent. I am married and she thinks it is stupid to waste time on it. So, I DILD and WBTB (short bathroom breaks I can sneak in), and stealthy RC'S during the day. Works best for me. Look for your dream signs... random RC'S never occur for me in dreams...rather dream signs alert me and I confirm with RCs.

      Thanks for all the good tips everyone. I'm going to start with a DILD and then try other techniques later on once I get the hang of lucid dreaming again.
