      First Post! Question: Best Techniques to start regularly lucid dreaming?

      Hi,

      So I have been hovering around DreamViews for about 1-2 months now just reading up on lucid dreaming. I have followed a couple of different guides on how to start lucid dreaming and such, but I want to hear from you guys. So, here is my story so far: After learning about lucid dreaming from numerous forums, I finally found a bunch of tutorials on DreamViews. When I first started learning about/experimenting lucid dreaming, I was following a DILD tutorial by the user "gab" (I would post the actual tutorial link here, but I need to wait 3 days ). While using his technique for about 2-3 weeks, I did have numerous vivid/clear dreams and I believe one lucid dream. I did indeed write down descriptions from the dreams on my phone, as a sort of journal. After doing this tutorial, I kind of took a break from lucid dreaming all together. About 5 days ago, I just got back into things. I noticed using the DILD method was a bit harder than expected, so I began to learn about the WILD technique. The WILD tutorial I followed was on DV and posted by the user "KingYoshi" who seemed to have very good rep. So far, I haven't attempted a full WILD following his method (I've been basically just studying it for now), but I plan to do one either tonight or tomorrow night.

      So, to cut to the chase, I am here looking for advice on achieving lucid dreams.
      My main question is: What is the best method for starting out?

      *Side Note*: I have also seen posts from multiple websites about Vitamin B6 and it increasing dream recall/clarity. I am aware that this vitamin doesn't really spark lucid dreams, but do you guys have feedback on it? I am debating on whether or not to buy it, but I want to hear from the community.

      Thanks for any feedback!

      Hello DarkAssassin!

      There is no true "best one" to start with. It depends on each individual, as some people may be better at certain techniques than other ones. For instance, my preferred method is WILD, because I find it the easiest. I actually have a hard time with DILD (though I've gotten better).

      From what you said, if you were using the DILD method and getting results within 2-3 weeks, that's pretty good! It doesn't hurt to experiment with another method such as WILD if you so choose, you may find that it's easy for you I would suggest giving each technique 3-4 weeks to see which you respond to best.

      Thanks for the reply! I seem to be close to doing a successful WILD, but just have a hard time waking up in the middle of the night to start it. Do you have any specific tutorial I should follow? Currently, I've been using the WILD tutorial by "KingYoshi".

      If you are having a hard time performing a WBTB, set your alarm. Ideally, you will want to eventually train your mind to perform a WBTB without the use of an alarm. KingYoshi has a great WILD tutorial, and I would suggest sticking with it.

      If you haven't checked it out yet, Sageous also has a great WILD tutorial. You can find it here if you're interested.

      You've probably come across it on here already, but one of the keys to long term success is consistency. If you expect quick results and hop from one technique to another you might be disappointed. You need to get the right balance between enthusiastic tenacity and accepting small steps with frustrating dry spells.
      Treat each day as a small step on a long journey, and try not to get too disheartened if it doesn't come as quickly add you would like, but keep practicing every day and night.

      Thanks for the tip. I'll be sure to take it all into consideration
