Lucid dreaming research

What makes some people lucid dream naturally, while others have to invest time and effort or never succeed? Is it genetics, lifestyle, sleep patterns, diet, attitude, the techniques being used or something else? There may be different answers for different people.

Please share this page. More participants = better results.

Purpose: use crowdsourcing to gain a greater insight in to what affects our ability to experience lucid dreams.
