      Can't lucid dream

      I have been trying for 3 days now, well almost 3 days. I listen to

      http://www.dreamviews.com/community/...ad.php?t=34633

      The lucid dreaming one as i am tired and try to go to sleep
      but all i get is relaxed and even with it on my ipod as the only song and it loops throughout the night, even with volume on 1 it wont let me sleep, period! the last 2 days i have had to turn it off just so i can sleep. I have listened to it for 3 hours now, and i gotta get up in 4 hours and i've yet to be able to sleep at all, tired yet again so i'm going to sleep with it off now, so tired...so bloody tired.

      I use the ear pieces, the ones that are just 2 tiny pieces that fit inside your ear. I hope this doesn't mean i wont be able to LD at all.

      If it's only 3 days, don't get worried. It can take a while. If you're losing sleep from the mp3, take a break from it. Having a good night's sleep is probably more important for recall and lucidity than the mp3, and you'll feel better too.

      Hmm, I would stick with something for about a fortnight before switching to something else. I wouldn't worry about not having a lucid dream in 3 days, my first one took about 2 months, and I know of othes that took even longer than that.

      But is it even normal you can't sleep at all even when it's at the lowest sound?

      Yes. You have to get used to having them inside your ears. The problem is not the sound, but the excitement, the feeling of having them there, the idea of sleeping with them and so on.

      I can't fall asleep with them either.

      It took me months to learn to LD.
      Don't give up after only 3 days.

      Why don't you try an actual method, rather than just listening to an audio track while sleeping.

      Check either the Tutorials section or the Attaining Lucidity section.

      Finally was able to sleep with music running. I woke up 3 hours after sleeping and had a long normal dream i just wrote down the last 10 minutes. That's 4 of the last 5 days of recalled dreams i've been able to record, even if they are really short.

      3 days? You think you've got it bad. I've been trying for the past 3 months and I still haven't got it. Don't give up so easily! Like someone in another thread said, the most important part is believing you can do it.

      How long does it usually take for you to form a habit? Some people are very habitual people, but some people can take months or years for something to become a ritual. The ability to lucid dream is largely based on your habit forming skills (funny to think of it as a skill) because the initial moment of lucidity must be a complete reflex.

      Well, if it takes me a year and a half and still no LD i would be quitting forever. I'm not a patient person by any means. Besides, i got more things i want to do then LD like AP, OBE, meditate, WILD, etc.

      I've been trying for almost a year now and have only had low-awareness lucids and I don't really consider them real lucids. My problem is that I don't actually try that hard. Hopefully I'll work on it more in the summer.

      Hi LucidFlanders,

      If you do it sytematically, lucid dreams are not that difficult to experience ... :p

      Believe me, I used to have the same approach earlier ... but now I manage to get an LD everyday ...

      Not intended to discourage, but to encourage not giving up, I started late in life, brain connections diminishing, but I refused to surrender. If you want something enough, well, you just don't quit! I'm glad I kept at it, my lucids are something else!
