So I am mid-way through my 30-day Lucid Dreaming Book Challenge, wherein I have committed to myself to blog once a day about lucid dreaming and my journey to have consistent lucid dreams in an effort to explore consciousness and achieve greater self-actualization. So far I have not have any lucid dreams and I am not really surprised. Although I am gaining momentum in writing on this blog everyday, continuing to read from the new lucid dreaming book: Lucid Dreaming, Plain and Simple: Tips and Techniques for Insight, Creativity, and Personal Growth, and am doing daily reality checks with my new lucid dreaming app, Lucid Dreamer, I have slacked off in other areas.

One of the points that Robert Waggoner makes in his lucid dreaming book Lucid Dreaming, Plain and Simple: Tips and Techniques for Insight, Creativity, and Personal Growth is that when you are first learning how to induce lucid dreams it helps to focus on mastering one method during your first 30 days. He goes on to write about the first method he used to purposely induce lucid dreams when he was a junior in high school: staring at your hands while going to bed with the intention of seeing your hands in your dreams and then remembering that you are dreaming.
