I think, that I've had a lucid dream before, but I don't know how I got there and want to know, how I can induce a lucid dream.I've tried it many times, but it never worked. Could somebody tell me the steps,how to get there?

Thanks
You can't always get what you want, but if you try hard, you might get it!

the only thing that you need is to discover you are asleep.

there are several way's to get there.

write every time you wake up, your dreams down.

when you, for instance, dream often about swimming, and in the real world you almost never swim, then you remember that, and realize you are not swimming but dreaming.
<from there you are lucid dreaming>

stephen laberge produced masks, with flashing lights,
when you see flashing lights you realise you are dreaming

in the same way you can ask somebody to talk with you when you sleep.

or try an alarm clock which play music, when you recognise that music you remember that you sleep

it is also tried to visualise real life as a dream.
when you do that trying biting yourself shows the difference <it produces state of twilight, that is a state in which you do not know wheter you are awake or dreaming, which is better to avoid>

There is a good book on lucid dreaming by stephen laburg
 
Ive been using my own technique . Ive later found it similar to the WILD technique described in the book.
 
I tell myself Im going to have a lucid dream while in bed.  I lay on my back and relax my body, bit by bit from head to toe..after a little while I enter sleep paralysis (although sometimes I get stuck here!) if you do get stuck wiggle a toe then a foot and your out!
 
But often, from sleep paralysis I can either 'roll' out of my body or I go into a dream with control.  This is all quite new to me still, but with practice you do get better at it.
 
Also, the best time to have these dreams is the early hours of the morning,  when you have stired in the night, when you do wakem, tell yourself you will lucid dream and go back to sleep (using sleep paralysis if you wish)
 
Good luck, and happy dreamimg! Ive put my first post in the OBE forum, although I think there is a very fine line between obe and lucid!

Stephen LaBerge is the Father of lucid dreaming - I had my first lucid dream after I've read his book!

One interesting thing is this: while Stephen LaBerge knows all about Lucid Dreaming, he does not think that OBE is anything special - he believes that it's merely a special kind of lucid dream.

I see thet you mention "rolling out of your body" - this is actually an OBE technique. I used to roll out or force my way out unil I discovered that "I am floating up" affirmation does the job easier.

You are also correct that mornings are the best time for LD/OBE. It's possible that in the evening, the mind/body's main task is to rest after the hard day, so they are not very cooperative about having an alternative experience.

I see that you also picked up on the "fine line between obe and lucid" - you are perceptive, this is exactly right!

I think that there are several mind/body states, which could be categorized like this
1. Awake (solid, physical state)
2. Normal dreaming (subsconcsious awake, concscious mind and body asleep)
3. Lucid dream (subsconcsious and concscious mind awake, body asleep)
4. Out of Body experience (possibly first non-physical level of reality)

In additional there appear to be multiple reality levels while OBE, you can explore them by affirming "I move to the next level".

I think you should not force yourself to go at it. Just let time run its course., Did you know that Lucid dreaming starts as a normal dream? And most of us don't really enter lucid dreaming state that easily.
