Need advice on lucid dreaming!
So i've lucid dreamt a few times but its been completley random.

I somehow trigger myself into saying 'i'm dreaming' but i have no idea what the trigger is. And also my lucid dreams are usually in the early morning just before i wake up.

I know there are people out there can lucid dream on demand and do it as soon as they sleep..

Are there any of you that could give me some tips and tricks into successfully lucid dreaming?

Thanks!

Put a candle in your your room and before drifting off to sleep stare at the Candle and say to your self, I will see this candle tonight in my dreams and when I do, it will be my sign I am actually dreaming and to wake up within the dream.

There are some supplements that help...5-HTP and galantamine, for example (there are others).

You might also try listening to lucid dreaming mp3s at bedtime.
For nothing is secret that will not be revealed…

Substantial doses of passionflower extract before you go to sleep. Meditating prior to taking the supplement will help.

Start with 1 gram of extract. Puritan's Pride is a reliable vendor of an extract that is obtained with a cold water extraction in an all-natural tincture. I have not had nearly as good of results with the tablet supplements.

Passionflowers contain harmine and harmaline - both natural MAO inhibitors. Thus, it serves a dual-purpose of a mood balancer. The harmalas are reversible and do not damage the MonoAmine Oxidase enzyme production pathway, so there's no need to pay attention to the usual MAOI diet plans. CHECK FOR COUNTER-INDICATIONS WITH MAOIs ON ALL MEDICATION YOU TAKE before using any amount of MAOI - natural or not, reversible or not.

Mix a big enough amount with seratonin receptor agonists or seratonin reuptake inhibitors, and your lucid dream might never end.

Stop eating meat, junk food and processed food!
Get out in nature more and throw out your tv.
It worked for me there is rarely a day that i don't dream.

Some of us are vegetarian, work outside in nature, and don't have a TV. I'm that way and I rarely dream. I did have a bit of success with melatonin every night, and I recognize that I dream, but don't have any recall or visuals. This is an important subject.

Re: Need advice on lucid dreaming!
Do reality checks while you are awake, often enough that it becomes a habit. You will start doing them in your dreams, and be able to recognize when you are dreaming easily. The ones I use:

1. Checking digital clocks to make sure they read a real time. In dreams a digital clock might read something like 45:72, or random garbage that isn't even numbers.
2. Use light switches to make sure they work normally. In dreams they often don't turn the lights off, or have other strange effects.
3. Clench your teeth together tightly and notice the shape an feel of your teeth. In reality this does not change much unless you've been to the dentist recently or been in a fight/accident. If you find your teeth are all suddenly loose or have suddenly changed with no explanation, you are dreaming.
4. Mentally trace your steps from the moment you got out of bed until where you are now. If you cannot remember everywhere you have been, you are probably dreaming. Forgetting that you went somewhere happens sometimes, but in a dream you will usually not remember getting out of bed at all.
