      Thanks! Yeah, I'm defineatly in this for the stabilization. I haven't felt an increase in the stability of the lucids are but they're defineatly getting longer. It's great that I'm finally seeing progress in that area! Hopefully the end of the class I'll be having 10 minute lucids.

      Lucid #6-
      I became lucid as I saw someone walking across a crosswalk towards a train station. The train station was pretty far away. I wanted to see how fast I could run so I ran. I ran at about the same speed as in the real life. I woke up when I got to the train station. The dream lasted about 30 seconds.

      I forgot my goal of driving through the city and wrecking havoc.

      Last night was a bit tough for me as my sleep schedule was thrown off. I still got lucid though, extending my lucid streak to 7 days which was another goal of mine.

      That is an awesome streak, I have only hit 6 before, normally by six I get insomnia because I am sleeping too much .

      Sounds like you are doing pretty good at the goals, but I would aim a little higher for your time limit. 10 minutes is one of your shortest REM periods. Hopefully we can help you get longer LDs than that.

      Task no.
      1,2,3
      Analysis of week
      I completed all of the tasks although I barely and minimally completed the third one. Also, a couple of times this week, I lost lucidity after I completing the tasks. I should have another task in mind in case I complete the first one just so I can stay focused and not lose lucidity.

      The average length of my lucids this week was 2 minutes. About the same as last week.

      Dream in which task was completed
      Task 1-Lucid #1 , Task 2-Lucid #4, Task 3-Lucid #5
      Self reflection
      I never really felt any guilt while perfoming any of the tasks. I was just focused on completing them.



      Ever since I was talking about how long my lucid streak was I've had very bad recall and no lucid dreams. I knew I would jinx myself! I think I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could avoid the jinx but that wasn't the case. So, right now I'm back at square one, trying to build recall to create a base for more lucid dreams.

      I never did get around to completing task 2 again, where we have to burn a precious possesion of ours. I'm not as motivated to do it know as I have other priorities now such as this next weeks tasks. Anyway, my plan was to go to a public area with lots of DCs around, strip off all my clothes (a precious possesion when you're in a public area), and burn them!

      I'm looking forward to more lucid dreaming fun this week!

      Lucid #1-
      WILD. I got up from my bed. My sister and 3 other girls showed up. I tried the tasks but was coming up with the wrong answers. Eventually, I wanted to flirt one of the girls. She seemed to be in a really bad mood though. She looked depressed and ready to defend herself if I got too close to her. I abruptly woke up. The dream lasted about 40 seconds.

      I think if I thought more creatively, I could have gotten around this situation. I could have asked her why she was so sad and then if she needed a hug. I should take more time to think things through.

      Lucid #2-
      I caught a FA. I got up from my bed and walked around, trying to remember and answer all tasks which I did. The dream felt nice and stable! I went outside and somebody showed me these pine cone looking things wild turkeys were create that he called minutes. Lucid dreaming minutes. I collected a big handful about 7 or 8. I decided I wanted to fly to space. I couldn't make it though. I woke up very slowly. I felt like I was half awake and half dreaming for about 10 seonds before waking up. The dream lasted 4-5 minutes.

      So, I completed all the tasks. I guess I just keep completing the tasks? Maybe I could use these tasks as I stabilizing method this week. When I was waking up I forgot to try to stay in the dream via spinning or falling backwards. Also in this dream I tried walking around in order to keep the dream going. If I stand in one place too long like my first lucid tonight, I tend to wake up.

      Tonight I got my recall skills back. Hopefully I'm back on track.

      This is genius lol I would have made that one of the tasks but I don't most people could accomplish it. Please try it one of these nights.

      Lucid #3
      I had a WILD. I went a different way this time, walking through the closet door rather than outside. I was in another house's kitchen with a few DC's around. It looked like they were cooking some sort of chili because there were tons of ancho and habenero chilis everywhere. He wanted me to cut a vegetable. I randomly started to strip in front of everybody when I woke up. The dream lasted about a minute.

      This is my second lucid that has ended as a result of me trying to strip. I have to find another way.

      Lucid #4
      I caught a FA. The dream felt really unstable. I went outside and tried to vaporize the clothes off my body. It didn't work. I woke up shortly thereafter. The dream lasted about 30 seconds.

      I should have tried harder to stabilize or clarify the dream before proceeding.

      Lucid #5
      There was some woman driving me around in a neighboorhood. I became lucid as her driving skills we really poor. She was controlling the car from the passenger side and was swerving, driving in the wrong lane, ect. I decide I've had enough of this and take control of the car. I try to lift up the car to fly. I get it airbourne over the house but I didn't get too far. I was lucid for about 20 seconds.

      I think at this point I was a bit mentally tired after getting lucid so much! I'm pretty sure that I also had a 4th lucid before this one that I forgot completely and didn't count.


      I tried to carry out my original plan for the second task but it's not working out. I think the only way for me to be naked in a dream is to be naked from the start the dream with which would defeat the purpose of the task.

      I'm typically pretty good at remembering goals in my lucids, especially if I'm motivated. Can I start week 4's tasks? Or do I have to wait till next week? I really want to try them!

      Well, I would recommend realizing that you are naked. It is a little more passive, but creating a fake memory of you already taking them off or already seeing yourself naked. This will automatically have you naked, even if you already saw yoursef clothed. Remember that clothes are as fake as everything else and don't need to exist, all it is is dust in the wind. Haha, actually not even that.

      You seem to have a lot of blocks that wake you up. Can you feel it when something you are about to do is going to wake you up?

      You have a lot of lucids, feel free to try them if you want. You remember goals better than I do. but make sure you have learned the lesson. Know these things in a dream and it will be stable, why wouldn't it be?

      Thanks BrandonBoss! I like those ideas. I'll try them out. I think I might of said before that when I'm struggling with dream control it all usually takes for me to succeed is a little imagination and dedication. I think week 4's tasks will help me here.

      I do have a lot of blocks that wake me up. I can't feel it when something I'm about to do is going wake me up. Although when I have a lucid like lucid #4 where my body feels heavy and it's real blury, from my experience I'll get the feeling that it's going to be a short lucid. I think when I get in those situations I should just stop and try to clarify the dream the best I can before proceding.

      I tend to be like the dreamer who chases after the rabbit so I think mastering week 4's tasks will help me improve the most.

      Lucid #6-
      Towards the end of a longish non-lucid dream I gradually became lucid. I decided to fly in order to find a spot where I could find some objects to do the first task of week 4. I found what looked like a Reece's themed picnic area with objects on the tables. I landed there and abruptly woke up. I was lucid about 20-30 seconds.

      Flying seems to be becoming another one of those blocks that wakes me up!

      To be honest it seems like you are putting these blocks up yourself. I sometimes have a block like this and I think that "there is nothing different between walking and flying in a dream, because it is all in my imagination." If it seems to wake you up, you will automatically think something like "Ah! doing that seems to wake me up!" and you will shy from that. What did you do? nothing, you are lying in bed at home imagining it. You must come to terms with the fact that not only is everything in the dream just in your head, but nothing should wake you up, save REM ending.

      If this doesn't work for you I would try fake memories, they are the most simple thing to do in an LD and they can help immensely with mental barriers.

      Hope this helps! If you have any questions please ask!

      I had 2 DILDs this morning. Long story short, I got distracted by DC's and forgot to do the tasks. I was lucid for about 2 minutes and 1 minute long in the dreams.

      I get distracted by them too. They are annoying. I beat them with a stick

      Have you tried just getting all the DCs away from you so that you can think better? I am doing better with DCs now than I used to, but I used to really lose lucidity all the time because of them.

      I am not really that violent in dreams! I want to fight, but most DCs bend to my will in a second. I need to go on a quest and fight a bear. He won't quit on me. That would be so fun. No dream powers, bear fight one on one. I could just try it over and over till I won. I am a big fan of learning to fight in dreams. I wonder if bears fight like dogs... Hmmmm... Might be worthwhile to look into. rambling...

      Keep trying on those tasks, you are beast at remembering them! You can get them done tonight!

      I haven't tried getting all the DC's away. I'm usually not too distracted by DC's unless they're chasing me. But, I've learned know how to deal with that now. The DC's that distracted me last night were pretty unique though; a dog made out of jello trying to bite me, and my grandpa, 30 years younger.

      I find the more motivated I am to complete a task, the more likely I am remember it.

      Off to bed! Increasing motivation now! those tasks!

      Lucid #1
      DILD. I was in my bed when I became lucid. I was tired. I showed my grandma how I could make stripes on the tv dissapear. When I got rid of the four stripes she gave me a high five. She slapped my hand hard! I woke up shortly thereafter. I was lucid for about 20-30 seconds.

      This one was really short but it broke a dry spell so I was happy with it.

      Lucid #2
      I catch a FA. I woke up out of bed. I remembered the first task. I saw an iguana a few yards away. I imagined it rising up and it did. I did this a few times. I then moved to another object, I forgot what kind, and did it again. A giant chicken showed up and was messing with me, as if it wanted to fight. It poohed on me and ran away. I woke up. I was lucid for about a minute.

      As soon as I became lucid I told myself "I'm lucid". I think doing this got my head in the game a bit more enough to where I could remember and complete the first task. But once again a DC got in the way and distracted me.

      I had a DILD last night. I forgot to do the tasks, probably because I hadn't been lucid in a while and I was happy just to be lucid. It was a longer lucid though, about 4 minutes, and for the first time I successfully embraced and kissing a random girl without waking up! Progress!

      I had a DILD this morning and was able to complete the second task for week 4. I just tried to imagine myself levitating and I did! I was even able to move around while floating. I tried the last task but made 0 progress. I tried vaporizing the houses around me but it wouldn't work. I think it's because I found it tough to imagine what a vaporizing object would look like so I wasn't subconciously expecting the object to vaporize. I think this task will be the toughest but I'll try my best.

      My lucid was about 2 minutes.

      Man... I really need your ability to remember tasks within LDs.

      Don't forget that you aren't trying to just accomplish the task, you are trying to 100% know what it means to be dreaming. If you are just trying to use your "dream energy" to vaporize it when dreaming, then you are missing the point. That house doesn't exist. You are lying in bed just imagining all of this, maybe say aloud to the house or mountain "you don't exist!" Believe that, know it, make it be no more!

      I had a DILD this morning. I went outside, flew, and spun around, trying to imagine random objects disappearing as I completed my rotation. The closest I got to making an object disappear was a mountain. The mountain turned into a mountain covered by a giant cloud. I didn't complete the task though so I'll keep trying.

      Also, as I became lucid and went to go outside, I noticed that my body felt heavy. I tried to ignore it the best I could and the heaviness went away for the most part.

      Sorry I haven't posted for a while. I've been without internet for a week and a half with after a virus made my computer unusable. It's finally fixed now though which is great!

      Lucidity has been streaky as usual. I've had 11 lucids since I last updated. I haven't made any progress on the last task but I have been knocking off a few personal goals. The length of the lucids has been steady at 1 to 2 minutes. I've found that if I'm really focused on a task I can prolong the dream for a bit until I complete it. After complete a task though or if my mind otherwise wanders off the dream ends pretty quickly though.

      Is the second lesson up yet?

      Nope not yet sorry, I don't know about brandon but I've been quite busy, I might work on it but I probably won't have the time. Hows it going in general, have you noticed any increase in your ability to remember goals etc?

      In general it's going okay. I haven't noticed any increase in the ability to remember goals but I've always been okay at it. I tend to forget goals when I get distracted by the dreamscape though. For example, my last lucid which I had 2 days ago, I had the intention of trying to complete the last task but was distracted by my curiousity of wanting to know what it was like under a lake and ending up swimming with sharks instead.

      My dream control is good, like I said I've been achieving personal goals. I think doing the tasks has helped improve my dream control a bit. The last task I'm trying to complete has been tricky though as I can't imagine how to complete it. I've got the idea of getting a wand of some sort and pointing at say a mountain and saying "mountain gone" or something like that. I feel that might increase my expectation level of completing the task.

      The length of the lucids is still about the same, about 1 to 2 minutes. The dreams tend to be stable when I'm focused on completing a task. But, the dreams tend to fall apart when my mind wanders after I complete or give up on a task. So, I think to increase the length of my lucids I think I have to stay focused on completing a task and have more ready once I complete it. I've gotten rid of a block or two as well. For example, now I wake up after flirting with girls rather than during which is nice. I think I did this by convincing myself I won't wake up as a result of doing it. I think I could get rid of other blocks as well by applying this mindset. With this anaylsis I think I'm on my way to increasing the length of my lucids.

      I think I'm due for a lucid tonight
