      Hi dutch and BB!
      Y'all know me quite well by now. I'd like to sign up officially for the course. Here are my vitals:

      I'm at 29 LDs, with 7 in 10 days during the last competition (one week ago), including 4 in 5 days, 1 ld 3 days in a row, and 2 in one night, all new highs for me. 10 LDs in the last 2 months, including basic TOTM in both Feb and March. I usually undergo a short "recovery" period after an intense competition like now and am building my way back up. Last night's dreams had awareness in them for the first time in about 4-5 days. Sleep has been very deep after the competition for those 4-5 days. I do a lot of intense exercise now to promote solid sleep.
      Figuring out how to wake up again in the middle of the night (brierfly) will help with lucidity.

      Basically all my LDs are DILDs. I've tried DEILD a few times, and WILD a bunch of times, but the few times I did get into the dream (once for DEILD and once for WILD) there were discontinuities so maybe those were DILDs, too.

      I have successfully lucidly flown twice (once with low, and once with medium awareness, where I attempted speed control but it didn't work), and behind the back summoned DCs several times. I have shot (weak) fire from my hands once. I summoned a DC directly before my eyes once after a behind the back summon didn't work, it was a trip watching her materialise (flat painted red person shaped blob appeared in a flash, where the red slowly drained away resulting in a fully rendered DC underneath!). I've never teleported. I've successfully performed a pre-planned stability ritual several times (I pat down my dream body from my chest to my feet, looking down at it, while counting to 5).

      Many times I feel "dizzy" / unstable upon lucidity and vigorous hand rubbing brings everything clear and things settle.

      I rarely lose lucidity and have a dream continue, but that has happened at least once that I'm sure of.

      My awareness ranges from barely realizing it's a dream (I treat DCs like real people), to full knowledge of who I am, what I'm doing, and what my goals are. Time of night of the LD seems to influence this (closer to morning, more awareness).

      I've also successfully deeply engaged both touch and visuals in at least one dream upon remembering to do so (last week), it was a really amazing experience.

      I get easily distracted by female DCs. I do not want to ignore them altogether since that is a big part of LDing for me, but I'd rather invest in really building up my "lucid minutes" and taking frequency and control to the next level, first, if that's what's needed.

      Almost all of my dreams end (and some of them start) with close female interaction (e.g., making out, or grabbing). I think I could easily go twice my current max (5 minutes) or more by avoiding dream girls.

      I want to figure out how to engage the ladies without losing the dream, that's a secondary major goal.

      So my plan at this point is to: 1) deeply engage the dream environment (all senses), and just stay in the dream fully lucid for as long as I can, and slowly explore. 2) keep my feet moving, so my perspective is always shifting. 3) constantly set and re-set mini-goals

      I would like to learn how to stand still and observe without losing the dream. Right now I do that by rubbing my hands or my thumbs over my fingers separately. And I would like to learn how to stand close to a girl DC where she fills my field of vision and not lose the dream.

      And I hope you'll accept me in to the class!

      thanks,
      FM

      Hi Dutchraptor and BrandonBoss, I am now officially signing up for the course!

      I currently have had 24 remembered experiences, with twenty of those being in the last three and a half months. I am currently practicing MILD as my predominant method of induction.

      Dream control is coming along slowly, but surely. I seem to be getting the hang of the, "Oh, I remembered something!" method of summoning (suggested by sivason) which I was able to use last night to conjure two people into my dream!

      I am fairly adept at walking through walls. Up until now, flying has been challenging. Part of this is due to a fascination with and yet fear of heights. I have jumped from my second story balcony in a dream, no problem, but in same dream, when I began to fly too high, I got nervous and came down. I would like to fly very high in a dream! I also would like to learn a different method than the "swim" method. I am thinking of trying Sensei's "walk" method that he mentioned in another forum, if I can remember to do so once becoming lucid. In one lucid, I simply flew around a party, Peter Pan style, and it was great. Just not sure how I did it!

      For the most part, I have no fear of intimidating DCs in dreams. I just hug them or become friends with them. This morning it was a grizzly bear. I walked up to him with no fear, began to pet him, and he turned into a dog I'm not sure if this is dream control, but I would rather make friends with DCs than fight them

      Other than that, I'm not much of a controller yet. I would like to become more adept at manipulating the dream, and in particular, pulling myself out of the dream logic (so that I'm not taking objects from the house with me, or remembering to lock my front door in an LD!).

      Looking forward to taking the class!

      Hi! I'd like to sign up too, if it's still on!
      I've been trying to lucid dream for about 6 months now and have had about 1 dream per month, though very short ones(max was 20 seconds). Recently discovered SSILD, and last night had 1 DILD/WILD (not sure, can't remember whether I started lucid, or became lucid), and 5 DEILD afterwards. Sadly though, all of them were about 5 secs.
      This is my main problem. Stabilization. Control's not too much of an issue, since so far, I've flown, spawned lava, changed night into day, and exploded the Earth. So getting my dreams stabilized and longer, is my main goal.

      Cool, kaiern9 and lightmikeE post as soon as you want.

      It's not really a long course because there's barely anything to tell. If you wanna do well you have to stick to it for a long time. Have a look at shawns workbook, he's very good at this stuff

      Hello!
      I'm dreaming lucid since I was a little child, because I had a lot of nightmares. The sad fact is that I'm only able to be in the dream for like a few secs. I usually have LD every night before waking up. I tried various techniques like hand grabbing, shouting "stabilization", senses etc ... but all of them didn't work ... yet. I'm here to learn the way of stabilization. It would be great to experience LD for at least an hour long.

      Best wishes,
      Claritas

      Whats up dreamers?

      I have been LDing for 5 years but have recently stepped up my game by creating a daily practice routine which has been working wonders. I just went through all of my journals and ended up with 241 LDS. Although I have been having great success with inducing dreams at least once a night for the past week, I want to overcome that dull, drunken mindset that sometimes takes its hold, not allow sleep atonia to jolt me out of a dream, have enough consciousness to rebuild a dream from the void/dream chain, create dream plots, summon people/objects and etc, etc etc. Many wishes

      Count me in!

      hey guys!

      I wanna sign up. i'm still strugeling with letting the dream not end after only a few seconds. I know it's expectation playing against me. I'm working on reducing my fear of waking up, but it's still hard.
      I fill my heart with fire, with passion, passion for what makes me nostalgic. A unique perspective fuels my fire, makes me discover new passions, more nostalgia. I love it.

      Add me as a friend!!!
