      hey guys, new here

      hi guys, I'm new here. I've been interested in lucid dreaming for quite awhile now. I become aware of my dreams while dreaming about half the time, though it's just a low level awareness usually and I've only been able to control one of them. but I've always wanted to have better awareness and control, so I somehow stumbled upon this site through wikia. I'm actually hoping to use lucid dreaming to help stop some of my nightmares, since I rarely have good dreams and would like to have more :(

      I have pretty good dream recall (already recalling 1-3 dreams a night), but I've still decided to start a dream journal and work a bit more on dream recall, cos the recall can be rather fuzzy sometimes being that I only recall them in the morning when I wake up.

      anyways, hi :)

      thank you! I'm a little bit excited to be here, I read all the pages at the site and already learned more than I knew on my own.

      I did have a question though, perhaps one I would learn the answer if I looked around the forums, but I shall ask it anyways--if nothing else, I could get pointed in the right direction :D


      since I still plan to practice dream recall first, I was wondering--is it easier to recall dreams if you're sleeping on a fixed schedule? I've never actually bothered much with purposely trying to recall my dreams before--either I did or I didn't, and to be honest I was happier when I didn't because most of them were scary or very strange. and I didn't record them very often, only writing them down in my journal (regular one, not dream) if they really disturbed me, or if they were really awesome and wacky (rare).

      but I have insomnia and no real sleep pattern, I simply fall asleep when I can't stay awake any longer. and how much sleep I get always varies widely too. anywhere from four hours to twelve or thirteen hours (I know, it's excessive a bit but normal when I've been awake 24-30 hours).

      I can regulate myself into a sleep pattern, but it's very hard and it usually doesn't last more than a few weeks. should I work harder at trying to get steady pattern, would that help with anything (other than just simply getting better sleep, I mean)?

      but thank you for the welcomes :D

      Hey there,

      I don't think the sleep pattern will have that great an impact on your total dreamrecall, though it might make it erratic. Basically, without a normal sleep pattern, you're very likely to have nights when you sleep very deeply because your body is exhausted (and will find it harder to remember dreams), and nights where you sleep more lightly (which can make recall easier).

      Overall though, more important then a set sleep pattern is to consistently work on recall. Write down your dreams, make a habbit of thinking on your dreams the first thing you do when you wake up. This will help increase your recall, no matter what sleep pattern you might have.

      Hope that helps,

      Ah, that makes a lot of sense, thank you :) I do have erratic recall like that you mentioned, but that I can handle. At least I recall them more often than I don't.
