First post, Intro.

Have you ever had one of those dreams where you knew you were dreaming? Maybe you could even control to some extent what happened in the dream? That's called Lucid dreaming, and yes, it is awesome. The problem is, they happen at random, you can't just force them at will. Hell, most nights you don't even remember your dreams, right? Well, that's what I thought too, and pretty much everybody I know. The truth is it's completely possible to become the master of your own dreams, to remember every dream you have, to be fully concious while dreaming and to be in total control of your dreams.

Now that does sound interesting, but then why doesn't everybody do it?

Well, it takes a fair amount of practice, as well as mastery of a few tricks and techniques before you can even begin Lucid dreaming. Which leads us back to this blog. My name is Tom, and this is Day 1 in my journey into becoming a Lucid Dreamer. If you want to follow along with the blog and try to master this incredible skill as well, go ahead, I'll list the techniques and training I'm doing as I go. I've researched a large amount of accounts, guides and even other blogs and come up with a guide of sorts of what seem to be the quickest and most effective ways to train and practice to get to that Holy Grail.

So, the first order of business is to become adept at " Dream Recall ". It's exactly what it sounds like, you have to develop the ability to remeber your dreams. Step 1 is to pick up a notepad and start a "dream journal ". I have to start recording my dreams every night as accurately as possible. To help with this, every night, before sleep, I'll have to recite in my head " I will wake up after every dream I have ". Sounds sketchy, but this is something I tried once before, and it did work probably 50% of the time, which I guess is good enough.

So, this is where I leave off for now. I'll report back in a few days to tell if I made any progress at all. Until then, fingers crossed.
