      Smile First lucid...

      Last night was very unusual.
      I began looking into lucid dreams a few weeks ago. I stumbled upon this site early on. It's truly awesome, and I've learned a lot from it.
      So anyways, yesterday, I learned about reverse blinking. I also got an app alled Altered State for the iPod touch. Those are the two things that I used yesterday.

      So here's the story.

      It's 11. I feel tired, so I decide to try to have a lucid dream. I begin altered state and set my alarm for 4.
      I begin reverse blinking. This really works well; I go into a trance-ish state quickly. I try thinking of the dream I want (assassins creed 2 atm), but I kind of forget it.
      Next thing I know, I'm in some cave. I know that I'm dreaming, and think for a second,, "wow! I'm actually doing it!" I note that i remember everything that I've seen here. I remember reading something about looking at my hand to ground my lucidity. I do just this, but it begins waving around. I guess I fell back asleep or something, because I don't remember anything after this.

      I wake up. Or so I think, as it's a false awakening. My mom comes in and, for some reason, begins making my bed. I tell her all about the lucid dream I had last night.
      My alarm clock wakes me up.
      I attempt to reverse blink again, but go straight to sleep; I mustve been too tired. I go into an ordinary, non-lucid dream. Then I wake up for real.

      Now it's almost 11 again. I plan to try this again around 12-1.
      So anyone have any input or advice? I appreciate it.

      Nice, congradulations. I'd get into the habit of doing a reality check EVERY time you wake up, be it in the middle of the night (unless you're trying to DEILD), or in the morning. Then you'll catch most of your FAs and turn them, too, into LDs. =)

      Okay, I'll try that. I've begun to attempt it before, but I constantly forget. I guess I should just focus on it more.

      Thanks!

      Also, no lucid since then. I've been going to bed a bit too late, and I fall asleep fast, usually before I set my alarm for a WBTB. I keep having dreams where i don't think to RC, which is annoying.

      I have been doing RCs since then, but I haven't had any false awakenings so I don't really know yet.

      Keep doing you RC. Multiple times a day. This helps me out greatly. Make sure you really get into them and actually pay attention to how things feel, look, etc. Results don't come quick just be sure to stick with it!

      Okay thanks, I've been trying RCs still, but haven't had any luck still. I haven't stopped trying. Mymain problem is that I get too tired because I go to sleep too late.

      Try setting an alarm 5-6 hours after you've already been asleep. Then wake up and try to WILD. It is very effective.

      ^Wow. Worked extremely well. Had I been not-stupid, I wouldve had a lucid:
      I woke up 5 hrs after sleeping, watched YouTube, tried to wild, but fell asleep. I'll try 6 tonight.
      So I am in a dream watching YouTube on my iPod. It's not the full app, just focused on a single app and pretty blurry. I watch A video, and without really noticing, go into it. I'm watching this woman going upstairs. She starts taking off her clothes. I attempt to have relations with her (she doesn't know I'm there) but a force or something keeps me from doing it. I mustve been lucid the whole time, because I think: "I'm dreaming. I shouldn't really be wasting my time doing this." but I give into myself, and I lose lucidity.
      Next thing I know, I'm in ANOTHER FA and forget to RC! It's differEnt though. It's the middle of the night, and i'm on the floor looking for headphones (which, in reality, i lost the night before). Then I woke up, and I was really mad at myself.

      Try staying away from things that will make your mind too active. You wan't to stay in a drowsy mood. Just take care of small things such as getting a drink, using the restroom, etc. Me for example, when I turn the TV on or get on the computer, I have a hard time getting in SP and getting lucid.
