      Hey guys! i think i need help here

      i am entirely new to this, in fact i didnt know it was possible until yesterday. i had always wanted to be able to control what goes on in my dreams and feel aware in them. i have done a lot of research last night and i was planning on attempting my first LD but when i woke up in the morning i couldnt remember a single dream i had so i guess i didnt do it. if anyone has any tips on how i can remember my dreams it would be so helpful!

      im new here so....

      hi. my name is Amber. i have discovered LDing only yesterday in an attempt to find some way to control my dreams.

      there is no particular reason as to why i want to learn but it really caught my interest. i read up on it and found a few different ways to begin trying to LD. i was going to try WILD, so i lay down in bed relaxed as i had been instructed. as i was laying there waiting for my body to fall asleep, i was thinking of what i should like to dream of.

      after about ten minutes i could tell i was in sleep paralysis and a few minutes later i saw a mental image, but as usual when i see them it confused me as my body knew my eyes were closed and i should not have seen anything so i lost it. then when i woke up in the morning all i could remember was that image and no dreams...

      if anyone can help me like how not to wake myself up after getting a mental image any information would be greatfully accepted.

      Thank you!

      Welcome to DreamViews!

      Do you keep a dream journal? If not, start one. Every morning, write down all the dreams you remember. You'll notice your recall start to improve quickly. There is also a dream journal system here on DreamViews if you feel like sharing your dreams with the rest of us (of course, if you'd rather keep your dreams to yourself, that's perfectly fine, too).

      Good luck! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

      (By the way, I see you're a fellow Vocaloid fan. )

      Welcome to the forum!

      One of the best tips for remembering dreams consistently is to write daily in a Dream Journal. The act of writing your dreams tells your brain the dream-memories are important to you and to retain them.

      However, if you don't remember anything this can be a problem.

      If you consistently can't remember your dreams over a time-period than it might be good to set an alarm 20 minutes before you intend to wake up. The alarm should wake you pu while still in a dream period allowing you to retain more of the dream-memory. When you wake do not get up immediately. Lie in bed with your eyes closed and allow your mind to relax and remember the dream elements. With luck you should recall much of your dream(s).

      I applaud you for doing some research. It's great when a new member arrives prepared for class. Still, there is a lot to know and understand. If you haven't already I might suggest checking out our WIKI. This tutorial might be a good place to start: Dream Induction Techniques - Lucid Dreaming - Dream Views

      That list will give you an overview of several techniques and link you to their respective tutorials so you can make an informed choice based on your sleep-habits.

      If you have any questions I'm here to help. I, along with the rest of the staff, are here to guide you and answer questions or find information that will lead you in the right direction. You can post questions in this and other threads or you can send any of us a private message by clicking on our profile name and using the links that show up.

      Happy posting! I will be glad to hear your progress!

      WILD isn't always easy to start with, and it can be quite difficult to achieve right when you go to bed at night. For most people it works better after a few hours of sleep with a brief waking period in between sleep events.

      If you're going to attaempt WILD I might suggest adding in a WBTB (Wake-Back-To-Bed) after five hours or so.

      Working on dream signs and writing in a Dream Journal can really help the effort. Put in the extra time and allow the dreams to become memorable and important to your mind before diving into WILD. You can find information on all of this in our WIKI.
