Hi everyone! It's been a while since I posted anything about dreaming, hasn't it? Well, to be honest, I haven't really been trying lately, and as such, have had no lucid dreams. I've had good dream recall, though, so there's no problem there. I just need to make a little more effort, and I'm sure I'll have lots of LD's.
Well, ones longer than the one this morning, at least. I actually did realise I was dreaming right towards the end of the dream, but then I quickly woke up, and the moment was gone. This could be due to the unexpected lucidity, and probably because it was quite an erotic dream. I did say I would share as much as I could about my lucid dreams on this blog, but for everyone's sake, I think it would be best not to tell you much about this dream in particular. Lets' just say it was... interesting.
But yeah, a short burst of lucidity followed by a fast awakening and a strong feeling of frustration, in more than one way. I just wish I could have stayed in the dream a few more minutes and get things under control. Oh well, no chance of that now. Maybe next time.
It can get very frustrating if you try and try and never have any lucid dreams, just as it can be frustrating to lose lucidity like I did after a long time of not having any lucid dreams. But the important thing is to not give up, and think positive. Every night, you have a good chance of having an LD, and if you make an effort using a dream inducing technique, your chances will go up even more. If you find yourself feeling very frustrated and losing sleep over this, take a break for a while where you don't try to have any LD's consciously. Sometimes, you'll have one spontaneously. The most important thing, however, is your own well-being. Dreams can be fun and wonderful experiences, but they're not worth losing sleep over. If you are, you're doing it wrong in the first place anyway.
Well, I hope these short tips were of help to you. Until next time, sweet dreams!
