Hai! I'm Essence and I'm from the great land of Essence. (Which translates to the UK Wink

I love the idea of Lucid Dreaming. I've read loads about it, it sounds amazing. I hope I will achieve one soon, as of now my LD count is a saddening 0.

Greetings from Ireland. Smile

Essence, don't worry about the saddening zero. Can I ask, have you started journaling your dreams? If you are, you already know it's very important and so keep doing it. You are in the right track, and very soon you will have your first lucid dream. Very Happy

Sadly I haven't had a lucid dream in many months, mainly because i haven't tried, and now I have to restart my journal.

Essence,

A great technique for beginners to is Wake Back-To-Bed (commonly abbreviated as WBTB). I like this technique because takes advantage of the body's own physiological inclinations to help you fall asleep rapidly. Why is that important? The quicker you can get back into a sleep-like state, the easier it is to maintain your awareness until that point (since you only have to do it for a fraction of the time). Plus, sleeping helps declutter your mind for you, so that you don't have to do it yourself via meditation.

While this little body hack is nifty, it's not without its drawbacks. Forcing yourself to interrupt sleep cycles is exhausting, and in a way it sacrifices your quality of rest for shots at lucid dreaming. But, in my opinion, it's the most "fool proof" way of getting an LD, especially for the less-than-experienced oneironaut.

My two cents: Use that technique to get a taste for lucid dreaming, then work on other less invasive techniques for everyday use. The "Saltcube Timer" was designed specifically for WBTB, but you can use any method you wish to wake yourself up, such as an alarm, cell phone, etc.
