      How many hours of sleep does it take for lucidity to take effect for you??

      I'm assuming the norm is 6 hours, cause when i wake up after 6 hours and go back to bed, I am lucid.

      am i right?

      Well you can become lucid any time when dreaming. Correct me if i am wrong, though you begin dreaming between 70 and 90 minutes after falling asleep and those dreams last between 5-20 minutes. Now in your first few cycles of the night you are less likely to DILD b/c your dreams are shorter but as the night progress your dreams become longer. Making it easier to spot that you are dreaming and become Lucid. Wilding though i have no clue, i've never successfully done it(i always seems to fall back to sleep too soon.)

      The few times I've had them, it's been around 6 or 7 hours of sleep. All my LD's have been on the weekends when I end up staying up later and sleeping in.

      Depends on a lot of factors. I usually get mine after five hours of sleep after a f'ed up sleeping schedule and lots of stress (IE my usual sleep pattern after exams), and during naps (1-2 hours).

      I'm just wondering how you are gauging hours. Number of dreams before or forcing yourself to wake after a lucid, me being a newbie?

      Every night, I automatically wake up after 3-5 hours. At this point I'll remember 0-2 dreams which are not lucid. All of the lucids that I have recorded have happened after that first waking (with one exception).

      I can LD very little sleep, especially if I'm sleep deprived and my REM phase starts eariler than normal. Often my first dream of the night (if I manage to wake up after it so I can remember it) will be lucid, even if it isn't a REM dream.

      Depends, I has got times when I wake up from a lucid at 12 or 11 (2 or 3 hours after going to sleep) and other really late times when its so hard not to wake up from them <.<
      Creating a new persistent realm, claiming it and breaking the last seal I made back in the beggining of my journey are my goals right now
