      Question How Should A Beginner Like I, Begin Lucid Dreaming?

      Indeed How Should I Start My Journey Of Lucid Dreaming I've Had 5 Before I've Realized That This Was Common Enough That Others Practiced It. Each Of The 5 Of My LD's Were Started By Common Sleep And All Ended In Me Dying In Some Freak Way. So I Want To Know How To LD By Choice And Control It.

      Welcome!

      Start out by reading some of the tutorials here, like this one. Then you can read up on some of the techniques: MILD, VILD, or WILD (harder). You may find that rubbing your hands, touching an object, or shouting "increase lucidity" in your dream help you gain control.

      The most important part is to stay motivated and remember that it may be awhile before you start having vivid lucid dreams. It's like any other skill in life, you need to practice. Good luck!

      well while WILDs may be harder i'd say its worth the extra effort if u can get it down but i started with DILDs by doing reality checks using a wristwatch with an hourly chime

      Unhappy My Wake

      In All Of The Dreams I Can Recall Of Any Rare Lucid Dreams I Only Wake Up After Or Right Before I Die Or Get Injured Or If Something Shocking Happens Like Me Seeing A Relative Being Hurt.
      What Does This Mean? Is It Some Sort Of Dream Sign?

      They could just be nightmares, caused from stress, previous tramatic events, etc.

      Try WILDing (I havent been able to do yet but got plenty of HI) or DEILDing which i found really effective this morning after a dream, but unfortunately when i re-entered a dream i wasn't in SP and woke up as soon as I moved

      this DOES sound like a WILD(or maybe an alternative to FILD or a similar method)
      so I personally would call it a WILD if you are going directly from a waking state to a dream state with no loss of awareness

      Welcome to Dream Views!

      Being about to be killed in a dream is a great dreamsign. I used to get Lucid that way all the time.

      The best thing you can do, is to keep questioning your reality throughout your daily routine. Keep the thought that you could be dreaming right now on the front of your mind constantly. It's just a matter of time before you think about it in your dream.

      Remember to do many reality checks as well. That way, when the idea comes to you in a dream, you will remember to do an RC If your not already Lucid.
      It's not only about the dreams. It's a way of life.

      Wow I Guess That Makes Sense, But Does That Mean I'm A Natural Since I've Been Going Lucid Since 6? Then Again I Guess Not...Because I Wasn't Really Controlling It. If You Need Examples Just Go To That Dream Journal I Made.

      Yeah, I'd say you have at least some natural ability then. I have always really been into my dreams. But I never had a Lucid until I decided I was going to know I was dreaming.

      I did that sometime in my teens. I'll try to get to your journal one of these days soon.

      Hay I Found Out You Read My DJ Weird Huh? I Don't Know Why But The Only Dreams I Remember Are Dark And Scary But The Thing That Sucks Apart From It Being Dark And Scary Is That They Always End Prematurely. I Love Lucid Dreams Because They Make Me Feel Smart And Strong I'm Sorry If That Sounds Stupid But It's So Mysterious Thats Why I'm So Drawn To It. How Do You Prolong Your Lucidity?

      Yeah I saw your journal there and I had an extra moment so I checked it out.

      Probably the reason you remember the scary ones better, is because of the intensity of the dream.

      I know what you mean, I love that feeling you get in a Lucid.

      For me, the best way to prolong a Lucid Dream is to not think about waking up at all. Usually once I start worrying about waking up it happens.

      That's part of why I stopped doing the tasks of the month for a while. Because as soon as I remember to do the task, I immediately worry about if I will wake up before completing it. So I'm just doing my own tasks in my own time for the moment. just focusing on having some fun.

      Well I've not experienced this myself. But I guess if you were in a dream like state, and were aware of it. I guess it sort of was like a Lucid Dream.

      But A true Lucid would be while your actually asleep. It's hard to say because I didn't experience it. "Shrugs shoulders"

      Sounds like you are on your way, Supentaro. Have you checked out the tutorials section?
      http://www.dreamviews.com/community/...splay.php?f=25
      It sounds like you have some good dream signs identified, and have your own tricks for entering a WILD.

      I'll check out your dream journal.

      Is it inappropriate for me to ask why the first letter of each word is capitalized in your posts? Are you typing on a weird device or something? I don't really care, just curious.

      It doesn't bother me, I was just curious. I was imagining you using some handwriting recognition, translator, or voice to text device. I get these fantastic ideas sometimes
