      tnks. that's generally how I approach stabilisation. it can be good as an initial focus to become grounded in the dream and channel attention away from sabotaging thoughts such as happened in that LD. was strange how those thoughts came as an unexpected wave which was hard to counter. that's why I wish I'd focused on something stabilising at that point..
      done a number of good wbtb's over last week. not much effect. enjoying the wbtb though... bits of writing and/or music...
      I've really wanted to try out the TOTM before the month is over as flying in space is an old goal. experience vastness of mind. also making yourself big enough to hold onto the moon. good skill building in those tasks...I found last couple of months TOTM gave me good learning's... don't know what's behind dry spells though...part of many lucid dreamers experience. why does it happen though?...can become a bit of a viscous cycle as Aaronoscar has pointed out before. harder to put enthuasism and confidence in when it feels like its been a while since last quality lucid...goina keep up wbtbs. somewhat negotiating early bed times with wife as were enjoying a Netflix series and bed time is only real time...also considering trying Galantamine again to break the dry spell. long time ago I used to find it good. last times trying it left me feeling seasick so haven't felt like it. may experiment with again as want to get back to lucid exploration...

      On WBTB at mo. Lovely clear night when clouds part, so have had a nice 3am wander. Such a nice time to be awake, looking around knowing a blanket of unconsciousness or dreaming covers all the houses nearby.

      I was thinking, I woke at 3 as per my plan. I can wake myself pretty much at any time and as often as I plan during the night, generally, and without alarm. There's some ability to carry intention and awareness throughout the night...need to find my way of transferring this ability into effective LD practice...

      Time to fit in with what my friends are doing and become unconscious. Subtle difference will be my awareness dancing consciously through internal states. TOTM, flying to a star (towards one anyway) getting nailed tonight!
      Good luck to all dreamers out there

      no lucidity. had underlined obvious dream signs, went back to bed at 4. practiced SSILD. woke a bit startled that it was almost morning at 6.20 (usually after a wbtb, I'd wake a couple of times and have a sense of the passage of time). tryed for a WILD. didn't fully get to sleep but to a lovely rested inbetween space and got up in really good mind state at 7.15
      the quest continues.

      Finally broke the dry spell! Decided to try Galantamine again to help.

      Started with a bit of a weird WILD. Body was plesently relaxted, loud roaring sounds. Noticed my heart was beating faster than usual. Hypnogogia for a good while but not solidifying…tried to lift out of bed, or rub hands in case I could move. Kind of can move…not quite able to get hands together…floating in the room, spinning without direction. Could make sea sick but is fine. Send thanks to the dream and dream world, feels better, still no control in dream, think to try and turn on the light, may make the room brighter, still cant control arms properly to touch switch…turning round, try again…not quite. Find myself near window, bit more control and solidish-ok will go out-move out through window…still semi around me-floating up around house-v green walls-can see hands more vividly- do a bit of Tai Chi then wake

      Had spent a long time getting back to sleep and dream had felt quite light, so sense the Galantamine was having me too awake, so got up and took a tiny bit of melatonin. And after some good sleep and non lucids a lucid started

      I a big room, cool music in background “nice- Soundtrack!”, look at hands, reminding self this is a dream-a friend appears, lots of boken (wooden swords) on ground-cool, we do some sword work, him with sword, me with knife, defending it, then with 2 knives, hes teaching me
      Non lucid - A woman at the door of place I’m staying in-become lucid, mmm, could have sex if I let that woman come in…then think, no better things I want to do with dream “how will I get to Space?” (as per dp)…call out, walking in garden with others. A woman there crouches down, I climb onto her back, we jump up high, I’ve fist raised, looking up-greyish…after a time I say “I can see stars”! lots of them..keep traveling, white dots all around. Think I’m meant to describe solar system, becomes cool blueish with red orbs/lights. Find myself back in big house/manor (like as if it’s the next morning)-walk to window, quite high up (5 storys?)- musical intstruments around-say to a woman there, “can I have a hug please?”-feels like lovely contact-tender- say to another woman…also lovely hug- a number of women there, 2 hugging…I walk out, considering next task but wake

      Delighted to have a TOTM b4 end of month. Hope moving out of dry spell. Nice to have good experience with supplement’s. Wouldn’t see myself using them often though
