I'm trying the WTBT tehnique but every time I wake up in the night, after the 30 minutes, I just can't get back to sleep again. I feel uncomfortable and I just feel like I need to move all the time. Yesterday night I tried to sleep...and I think I managed to sleep a little bit, but unlike the first period of sleep..in that one I can't recall my dreams....Please help me I am losing my motivatioooon and I know that it can cause only prolems Sad(

You don't necessarily need to stay up for 30 minutes. Try 15 or less, maybe then you'll be able to fall asleep easier.

Try at 4 or 5 am! Get out of bed, walk down stairs, open your back door and step into your garden. Preferably with your bare feet in the cold grass. Razz
What do you hear? What do you see? The world is still at rest. Think of how many people in the world could be lucid dreaming at the very moment! Tell yourself why you want to be part of that.
Take a deep breath to take in the atmosphere and get back into your bed before you get too cold. With a clear and peaceful mind you are definitely ready for your lucid dream!

I also use my alarm clock...at 4 a.m. and I wake up...but the thing is that not even that I forget to remember the dreams right after waking up and I can't recall dreams, but I just can't go to sleep...I keep moving...:/ it becomes stressful as I see every day someone saying: OMG OMG OMG Had my first LD after one week or 2 days and it was soooo awesome....getting full of jelousy Sad(

Remember: this is your own challenge! Never mind the others at this stage.
When you wake up at 4 am, you can't fall asleep again for the rest of the night?!

When I go to bed it may take almost 2 hours before I am asleep, but during the night I fall asleep much faster. I think this is because my head isn't as full with thoughts, memories and feelings during the night as it is after a day. When I try to fall asleep again I focus on that rest, while I try to keep my eyes as still as possible. This helps because when you think of something, you almost always move your eyes.

You say you feel uncomfortable. Perhaps you can start with waking up for three minutes or so. Try to move as little as possible (only your hand for turning off the alarm), because this is the position you felt comfortable when you were asleep. You'll have only a brief moment to remember your LD goal though, so the chance of having a LD is small. But you could try to prolong the time of being awake.

That's all I could think of (except for sleeping pills perhaps)
Hope it helps

I discovered yesterday that from 3-4 days I have this very weird problem. I wake up in the morning and after 5-6 seconds I ask myself: What did I dream about? I am just lying in there for 1-2 minutes and I am trying to name possible objects that could appear in my dream and I still can't recall anything...hmmm...that is even weirder xD I swear that during the writing of this message...actually two lines ago...I remembered my dream...wohoo..(also, when it happens to remember a dream I usually do it 10-20 minutes after waking up...same way for WTBT waking up in the middle of the night.I wanted to write this message as soon as I could wake up so I could remember exactly what happened to me in the morning....

I have a similar problem, where I find it hard to sleep at all. To solve it, try and put yourself in the most comfortable position you can find, then count to four and breathe in and out, then repeat until you fall asleep. Works for me, so I hope it works for you too.

I only have problems falling asleep when i'm practicing mild, it's very frustrating.
I'm always focusing on the words "the next scene will be a dream" and then I try to imagine finding a dreamsign and getting lucid and I keep on doing these steps over and over again, but eventually it takes that long that I just give up and let my mind wander about. Do I need to try less? Or don't you have to fall asleep at the same time you're thinking about getting lucid?
