Okay so it has officially been six months of learning lucid dreaming and astral projection. I find it so interesting how this all started from just having one vivid dream. Anyway, I thought this would be good to write about so I can reflect on what I have achieved so far and also to let others know that the art of lucid dreaming is a skill that takes time to learn.
Although my dream recall ability has gotten better over time, it does fluctuate due to stress and running into energy blocks within yourself. I have been consistent with dream journaling and consider it a very important aspect of learning how to lucid dream. I personally believe it would be a mistake not to dream journal.
I had my first lucid experience when I was probably about 18 years old, but I had no idea what lucid dreaming was then. When I actually discovered lucid dreaming and started to practice it took me almost 2.5 months to have my first lucid dream. I’m sure there are people who have gotten quicker results and perhaps some people who have taken much longer. Everyone is different.
I started practicing 11/15/18 and here is a log of my lucid dreams & OOBE’s:
1/25/19 – My first intentional lucid dream
1/27/19 – I had a sequence of very short lucid dreams where I was becoming lucid and quickly losing lucidity. Most of my lucid dreams are short, but these were VERY short.
2/14/19: I woke up and saw hypnopompic imagery and it felt as though I was going to go straight into a lucid dream, but quickly decided to roll out of my body. I got out but felt so heavy and everything seemed dark. That is when I convinced myself I physically fell out of bed. I then crawled back in bed and then just woke up to realize it was an out of body experience.
3/11/19: – First time doing a reality check in a lucid dream
3/30/19 – First lucid dream where I experienced flying.
4/27/19: First Lucid dream where I tried telling other dream characters that it was a dream.
5/9/19: First time I turned a nightmare into a lucid dream. I also performed the nose reality check for the first time in this lucid dream.
I’ve had many more types of experiences throughout these past six months; dreams about lucid dreaming and astral projection, regular dream of having astral projection experiences, lower level lucidity in dreams where I experienced myself floating throughout the dream due to seeing my reflection, experiencing the vibrational stage, partial sleep paralysis, etc.
I’m happy with my results, but I have long way to go. I want to improve my dream recall, increase my rate of lucid dreams and be able to stabilize and have more vivid lucid dreams. This will all take time and that is okay. I am just going to continue dream journaling, doing reality checks and meditating.
I have also been experimenting with various supplements simply out of curiosity. I have no intention as of now to use any of these supplements on a regular basis. This is more for the sake of experimenting to see what kind fo results I get. I have tried Alpha Brain which really helped with dream recall and having a few vivid dreams. I have tried tea with valerian in it and I have gotten lucid from that, although I don’t know if that was simply a coincidence or not though. I’m also experimenting with Choline and 5-HTP. There are more supplements I do want to try, but will try them later.
Aside from dream journaling, reality checks and meditation, I have noticed (clairvoyantly) that getting enough sun exposure and doing cardio can also help with having more lucid dreams.
Anyway, I am just going to keep reporting my experiences and perhaps after another six months I will do a full year report on lucid dreaming & astral projection.
