      Thumbs up Very Effective Lucid Dreaming Technique

      Around January 2008, my brother created a very effective lucid dreaming technique. He has done this technique 5 times and has succeeded to get 4 long, vivid lucid dreams. He has told many of his friends about the technique, and they claim to have had success with it as well. It makes plenty of sense to me, as it is some kind of visualization technique. So if you're reading this, add this to your nightly dream routine, at least one time. Tell me how it works out for you; he'd love to know if his technique works for others.

      As a lover of juvenile humor (he's 11, people) he named this technique "TURD"

      Think
      Understand
      Rethink
      Dream

      THINK about what you want to see in your dream. Visualize the scene exactly as you would see it in a dream. Do not skimp on details like smells, tastes, or other sensations. And make sure the scene you visualize is going to help you become lucid, or you've defeated the purpose!

      UNDERSTAND how it will work. Go through the scene again, and imagine a voice explaining how each item will help you achieve lucidity.

      RETHINK so you will not forget. This is like a combination of THINK and UNDERSTAND.

      DREAM (lucidly).


      Here is what my brother does when using the TURD technique.

      He thought about the items that would help him achieve lucidity.
      Then he understood where they would need to be used.
      He rethought about the scene. (below)

      "I thought about 'RC' written on the wall. And then, I had a cell phone, and someone text messaged me saying 'Come to the RC competition.' And then I went to the competition, not knowing what 'RC' meant, then the announcer announced, 'welcome to the reality check competition!' Then, when it was my turn to do it, I did my reality check and found out I was dreaming."

      Note: During the technique, try not to move and DO NOT let your mind wander. Be still, quiet, and focused.
      Note 2: My brother's personal technique is different from the general one I listed above.

      If you follow these rules you should get lucid.

      Tell me what you think, both before and after trying this.
      This is the date of my first lucid: 3/6/2010
      It took WAY TOO LONG - but was completely worth it.

      omg this sounds amazing, im so trying this for the next week to see if it works.

      i liked the whole rc competition, good idea, i might use that.


      i was just wondering, i dont know what you meant by "skimp" so are you supposed to visualise smells aswell, or do you just do sight?

      By skimp, he means overlook, pass, you know. Basically, make sure you include ALL senses.

      You know what would be funny? If the TURD technique became the most popular, haha.

      People will get into lucid dreaming..and the first thing they'll hear about it is:"Oh yeah, lucid dreaming is awesome. I use TURD to get lucid every night!"

      Hahahaha!

      I've actually done this more as a WBTB. I'd wake up in the middle of a dream, "Damn, what the hell?!" So would go back to sleep visualizing as much as I could remember. Sometimes it'd work, sometimes it wouldn't

      TURD. Too funny. =P

      I really like the RC competition idea, though. I will have to use it.

      The name of the technique destroyed all hope of my becoming interested in this technique. If you want to be taken seriously, then try to be serious.
      Haven't had a lucid dream in 3 years, and I'm looking to get back into it.

      I've found that partaking in a relaxing TURD before bed helps you to have a better nights sleep.

      Well, I tried it last night, with no LDs. But that just might have been my LDing incapability, so I will try again tonight, and work on it tomorrow during a WBTB.

      Okay.
