      Crash!

      I've always had a good ability to remember my dreams. That's why I've decided to learn more techniques to remember more than one dream a night and for the dreams that I remember to be clearer. But what I found was way different than I thougt. I learned about LDs which I'm really interested into having. For a whole day I've been reading stuff about LDs, I've read almost every techniques I could find and I've tried most of them. That's what happenned:

      1st night: I woke up after 3 of my dreams and remembered them all. However I did not get a lucid dream which I wouldn't have expected on the first day anyways.

      2nd night: THis really shocked me. Maybe it was because I was too excited. That night, I didn't remember one dream. However I felt awake all night but whenever I would look I would be in my bedroom so it wasn't a dream.

      3rd night: Same thing

      Then I went in vacation and I pushed the lucid dreaming thing away and I remembered 1 dream a day. Today, I came back and I want to aply the techniques and all.

      My concern is. Will I not be able to dream again?

      Is it because I'm too excited or because I think to much about it?

      I thought that maybe this would be a reason:
      I oftenly have difficulties falling asleep which have always anoyed me. I wonder if I have some sleeping disorder or something. And when before falling asleep, I think "I want to be conscious in my dream. I want to wake up after each of my dream and remember each of them completly" continuesly I feel so serein, so close to my subconscious, so rested, as like I was meditating that I just can't fall asleep. I feel too concentrated even though I ain't. I felt so awake and then I my mouth started to feel really dry so I wanted to go get water but my legs and my arms felt paralysed. I couldn't even feel my fingers. I tried to move but it was hard and when I did it hurt. I really didn't understand what all this was about and I'm scared to try again... Help pleaze!

      Yes, you will be able to dream again, people just go through spells of not remembering their dreams.

      I think you had sleep paralysis.

      I hope it is just a dry spell. It's just funny that I've got one the day I learned about it

      Yeah, I though I had a sp but it was before even falling asleep which is weird...

      :insomnia:

      That tends to happen to people who practice WILDs as well. Your body probably just fell asleep while your mind was still somewhat awake. I wouldn't worry about it.

      And yes, I'm following you around. Why? I dunno. I just am. (Off-topic is dreadfully dull right now.)
