I'm trying to brush up on my lucid dreaming skills and was wondering if anybody had any good pointers, little things they do to help the process, dos and don'ts, etc.? Thanks.


.
Unfortunately all of my lucid dreaming was done in high school through the use of Robotussin Cough and Cold gels...I wouldn't recommend trying that though because it's extremely dangerous and at the time, I was stupid. They call it "Robo-tripping" and obviously, you trip major ball sack. But there are plateaus that you reach according to how much of it you took. I don't remember how many I took but once, when I was alone, I did it and an hour later I had a spiritual experience involving Jesus Christ, the Lord and Savior of Christians (if you didn't know), Buddha was there and he was actually the one talking to me about the things in my life that were wrong that I could fix, and I do remember another spiritual being being there with them but I cannot remember what this spirit looked like or how he/she played into the experience. For all I know it could have been my spirit animal speaking to me through Buddha or Jesus.

By the way, I'm not against Jesus Christ or Buddha - I just believe that they were prophets rather than how Christians view them. I can say this because I was raised in a Christian household and still am living here in the same household (money issues prevent me from moving out and no one except my brother who cannot move on his own because of his condition knows that I have moved "to the dark side where we have cookies"). Just my two sense on that one.

I used to have lucid dreams by accident (at the time I didn't even know what lucid dreaming was and thought everyone experienced it). I could control what I was doing in my dreams and tell myself to wake up. Lately I can't even fall asleep! I seem to have a bout of insomnia which I haven't had for years. I sleep with malachite, amethyst and lepidolite under my pillow but they don't seem to be helping. I've gone from being able to have lucid dreams to not being able to have them when trying :-(

Ah, I'm so glad I found this thread, it's so relevant lately. Synchronicity haha. :)

EtherealMoonRose; have you tried moonstone? I really found it to be helpful, the first time I wore it I honestly had no intention of lucid dreaming (although I sometimes do lucid dream on/off intentionally or not) but anyways ever since I wore it to bed I've had lucid dreams for three nights straight. I figured adding amethyst would help but I felt it didn't so I stopped that and went to just moonstone.
Definitely not saying amethyst wouldn't work but from my experience I prefer moonstone just because it worked better for me for that purpose. Try it sometime if you can. :)

Thanks for the suggestion Jade. Nope I haven't tried moonstone but it's definitely worth a try. I have two small pieces of moonstone that I'll go pop outside to charge before I go to bed. Fingers crossed :-)

I haven't had much luck sleep-wise in the past few days. Lots of broken sleep, ugh! Althought last nights dream was pretty vivid, the parts I can remember anyway. I'll let you know if anything good happens :)

Try moving all the stones away at night. Then a week from now move one in. The next week a diff one. Don't combine too many.

I totally agree with mrsdavid1975, like I said I found my amethyst to somewhat counteract my moonstone.

I've a question EtherealMoonRose, have you tried drinking relaxing teas to put you to sleep better? Chamomile is something I drink when I need a good sleep. :)
Hmm, as far as lucid dream inducing teas, I heard mugwort? (Personally I haven't tried it so I don't know how it tastes, oops haha)

Great advice ladies.

I'm sure my husbands snoring has something to do with me not sleeping. I've considered smothering him a few times :lol: (j/k lol) haven't tried tea as I'm not much of a tea drinker. I seem to be reading about mugwort everywhere lately. Might have to look into it :)

Well. I do this exercise....




I always start by picturing something red that is NOT supposed to be red. .. Something like a grasshopper. The grasshopper hops across ( something orange that isn't supposed to be orange) grass. ... I look across an orange field at yellow trees. I focus closer and see a green owl. The green owl flies off and lands in the top of a blue barn. In the blue barn is a purple tractor. .. And in a stall is an indigo horse. You repeat the colors in that order ... The indigo horse eats red hay. Etc etc. before you know it you are so deep. But in control of visions and places.


I've shared this here somewhere before but this is my trick I've always used .

Haha. That's ok. It takes practice. I have many more exercises I use. I'll share them later.

I absolutely forgot about this. Hah. I'm sorry. That is my weakness in life. My memory.

This sounds silly but have you tried the guided meditation apps? I used to use one that was some sort of sleep hypnosis thing. This British lady walks you down a path etc etc. it's soothing and you don't have to think. It is good for when you mind is full and you can't possibly turn it al off. You need an outside source to numb your thoughts and let you go into autopilot. Do that a few nights and see if it helps you focus.

Get all those electronics out of your bedroom too. Energy is energy. You pick up EVERYTHING.

I actually started doing guided meditations a couple of weeks ago and I really enjoy them. I use the ones on youtube though. I'll have to see if there are any apps for my phone :)

Still no success with lucid dreaming though. Ha. I'm notorious for going to sleep whilst playing on my phone. I really do need to break that habit!
