It’s been a while since I first started telling friends and acquaintances about how to achieve lucid dreams, and a few have reported back on their experiences to me. For the most part, they haven’t been positive!

So why aren’t they getting the lucid dreams they’re after? After a little inquiry, the general report goes something like this:

“I tried to learn lucid dreaming for a few nights, I even set up a dream journal. But after a couple of days, I hadn’t noticed any difference. I think I started to have one this one time, but I got too excited and couldn’t stay with it. I want all the fun that a lucid dream can bring, but it’s just too hard!”

I’m sure many of you have felt the same way. I know I have. Lucid dreams present a tantalizing possibility, but when we come up against difficulty, it’s easy to just get disheartened and forget about it.

But so long as we remember that anyone can have lucid dreams and we stay committed, it won’t be too long before we’re having long, fully lucid dreams.
