      Yes, overthinking stabilization can cause stabilization problems. As I've said many times: just enjoy the dream and focus on goals.

      Congrats on the gravity LD! This should show you that patience and consistency are rewarded!

      Congratulations on your Gravity ILD!! Very nice work!!

      I forgot to mention…although it might have been mentioned at some point already, but a "just got lucid" ritual, practiced during the day or during awakenings, is also a great way to raise the level of your lucidity. You can mix in your focus on self awareness during the practice. When you become lucid in a dream there is a better chance that you will remember this practice and benefit from it. I definitely agree with FM to not worry about stabilization or even this suggested practice and your primary focus should be on enjoying the dream and pursuing your goals. Do you also have any fun goals set up for your next LD? That is highly recommended.

      Thanks guys, I really appreciate your comments

      I am practicing meditative walks right now, as I have mentioned, where I focus on word "Dream", I try to become more aware and do GRC and LRC. I also "act" that I have just realized that I am lucid and I raise my self-awareness and try some of my goals.

      Yes, fogelbise, I have some fun goals. Idk if you are aware of Lucid Challenge "Journey of 1000 miles". I think it is very fun and I can't wait to try it

      Your current practices sound great!

      I haven't seen that Lucid Challenge. I should take a look. I don't get around all of the different sections of DV as much as I used to.

      Day 104

      OK, guys, long time no posts xD

      I have a question I would like to ask you, but idk how to express it.

      Anyways, last couple of days, I was practicing walking meditation. After about 20 days, my lucids have started again, I had the best LD so far. This morning I had one more, location induced. I got too excited and it was like I was leaf on the wind, I was flying and lost control and woke up.

      I know both of you were telling me I need to improve my waking life in order to have better lucids. What areas should I improve except awareness and reflection?

      Congrats on the great LD! In addition to the fundamentals of awareness/attention, reflection, and memory/recall, I think cultivating a grateful/thankful, compassionate, happy attitude towards life is highly effective. It benefits all experiences, both dreaming and waking. The dream yoga authors promote loving kindness recitations as being very helpful.

      Have you been practicing a "just got lucid" ritual of some kind? Doing this while awake can help you to remember to do it in dreams, which can really elevate the dream experience. Waking visualization / MILD can also really help with incubation and lucidity and doing particular kinds of dream control.

      I think there is a tendency to always be looking for something else, some other different thing to do, that may be the silver bullet. I don't think there are silver bullets in LD practice, beyond the fundamentals. Believe in them and practice them consistently and diligently, and cultivate a happy attitude towards life and dreams. Try to encourage the "perfect storm" of conditions (being well-rested, sleep schedule, stress free, content/happy with life) and practices (mindfulness, WBTB, expectation, intention). Rather, rinse, repeat, experiment, keep careful records, and notice trends to find what seems to work best for you.

      Having said that, I think you can find lots of useful exercises in Sivason's Dream Yoga class here in the DVA: diffuse vision, visualization, and so forth.

      Day xxx (I have stopped counting)

      Hey my mentors Sorry for being away for such a long time.

      Since I have started working, I have not been dedicated as before. That, combined with some other major personal issues has prevented me from practicing LDing.

      I am back now, and I hope I will experience more high-quality lucid dreams.

      See you!

      It's great to see you back! Anytime you need to, I recommend simply slowing down. I recommend to try not to stop altogether and look for the joy in as many of your practices as possible.

      I'm looking forward to reading about your first LD since returning!
