I sleep as much as I can. I know how to lucid dream ;} (Google it, seriously)If you've googled it you will understand why I try to sleep so much.
Could you teach someone to lucid dream or post a link to a place with an explanation cause none of the sites I saw had an explanation on how to do it.
Well, there are multiple ways to do it. One of the easiest is to draw a symbol on the back of your hand, and then every half hour
look down on it. And you may not get it on the first day, but if you do this every day for a couple days, you will most likely start to look down in your dream. When you look down in your dream, the symbol will be different (your mind warps things). Then you will most likely think, "why does it look like that..." and then you will realize you are dreaming and will be able to control it from there.
Some people have trouble with lucid dreaming because sometimes when you realize you are dreaming, you get too excited and you will either wake up or lose control of the dream.Other methods of Lucid Dreaming:
Every half hour, for as many days as it takes, ask yourself: "Is this a dream?" And then you have to look around and make sure
it's not a dream, even if you really do know, and then you will start asking and checking in your dreams.
Another way is to wake yourself up at around 3 in the morning. When you wake up, sit straight up and say, "I'm going to lucid dream", and then fall back to sleep.
Naps are good for lucid dreaming also. Taking naps in the middle of the day and then saying "I'm going to lucid dream", right before you fall asleep will greatly increase your chances of achieving lucidity. This may mess up your sleeping schedule, but it can be worth it.The instant you realize it is a dream, you should be able to control it immediately.
Lucid dreaming is great fun, but you have to make sure you stay in reality. It can be hard, because a dream is a place where you can do
