      Once again I'm trying to find a stabilization routine. Last night in my lucid dream I tried focusing on the dream to clarify and stabilize it. It didn't quite become as vivid as I would like it though, probably because I didn't do it for long enough. But, I was able to keep DCs from distracting me from stabilizing and I accomplished my dream goal of changing into a costume using a mirror. So, that was good.

      My stabilization technique
      Upon becoming lucid, I say "I'm lucid" and then I focus on details of the environment around me until the dream is clarified and stabilized.

      I think my stabilization technique is still a work in progress. My goal, though, is to set it in stone for consistency like my lucid induction routine in my Intro Class thread.

      I think I'll keep the same lucid goal of using a mirror to change into a costume or transform. I think that's a good exercise in dream control for me.

      These are the areas in order of importance to me that I want to become proficient in:
      • Stabilization
      • Transformation
      • Teleportation/Flying/Moving Around
      • Summoning
      • Telekenisis/DC and Object Changing

      I think I've almost got summoning down but other than that, lots of work to do!

      Is there any way the name of this thread can be changed to "Dolphin's DCS Workbook"? My Intro Class workbook has the same name as this one, and I feel it will help eliminate some confusion if I post in both like I'm doing today. Thanks!

      I had 5 LDs last night! Here's a quick summary of each went:
      • I initially forgot to stabilize and went straight for the mirror. I ended up teleporting to a futuristic dinner party. The dream became very vivid and stable. I flew past some mirrors trying to transform into a dolphin when I thought the dream was probably going to end soon which it did.
      • I forgot to stabilize again and also forgot about the mirror in this low level LD. I summoned greeting card for myself lol.
      • I forgot to stabilize and forgot about the mirror again. A lion distracted me. I tried to pretend it was a nice lion and wanted a hug but it bit me. I ended up wrestling with it the rest of the dream.
      • I remembered to stabilize and I remembered the mirror. I was getting really random things when I try to transform, probably because I wasn't as focused as I should have been. I almost fully transformed into a girl.
      • Same as the last dream only I lost interest in the mirror and asked a DC how to transform into a dolphin. It looked she knew what she was doing but she didn't. The dream blacked out but I saved it which was nice. I ended up flying with the girl and then having a FA where I played tennis with a DC.

      So, here's my thoughts:
      • I should re-stabilize whenever I'm thinking the dream will end soon. I haven't been good at remembering to re-stabilize.
      • I found the more I review my goals before bed, the more I remember them. Reviewing them 3 times seems to be enough.
      • Still occasionally having trouble with animal DCs who want to attack me. Don't know what to do.
      • In general, I don't seem to have much control over what the dream gives me in situations where I'm not summoning something.
      • I might as well make my bedroom my official dream base since so many of my dreams start there. That would be good for consistency.
      • I saved my last lucid by holding on to what I was feeling during the dream. Maybe I incorporate using the sense of touch into my stabilization routine.

      I'll keep working at it

      I had 4 LDs last night. The shortest one was the only one I remembered to stabilize in. I remembered the mirror in two of them but no luck transforming. My co-worker transformed into a dolphin in a non-lucid LD.

      Now I'm really done with the mirror so I need new dream goals. I think something easier would be better so my confidence doesn't dip lower.

      Maybe it's best not to think about stabilization? My dreams where I don't stabilize only last a few minutes at most though. I'm so lost right now! I do seem to be getting better at DEILDing so maybe that will help keep my mind off of the dream ending.

      I've been trying again to transform into a dolphin. Last night I pocket summoned a potion that would transform me into a dolphin, one of the few things I haven't tried. The moment I drunk it I woke up though, despite remaining calm throughout the dream.

      I've been trying to not think about stabilization. My lucid dreams have been consistently 1-2 minutes in length.

      I had 3 longer than average lucid dreams this morning. About 5-7 minutes each. I've been trying to not think about the dream ending which seems to be working. Still, though, there's a point in time when I start thinking, "Wow, this dream is getting really long! I hope it doesn't end soon! I think I just need to keep my mind occupied with other things to keep from thinking this.

      Also, I need to keep moving! All three of my ld's ended with me just standing or sitting in one place. Many times if I'm getting help from a DC, they will make me wait while they do something. I need to be wary of this trap! I'm thinking a leader's mindset rather than a followers might lead to more effective dream control.

      My next dream goal is to find a graveyard, find the statue of the Commendatore, and have him lead me on an adventure through hell. Once I do this, I might try the bonus task of the month and dine with the natives and or the advanced task of cutting off my hand and serving it for turkey dinner. After I do this, it's back to trying to transform into a dolphin.

      For OCD reasons, I'll post my game plan for dream control and stabilization here. Kinda simple, but I like simple!

      Once I become lucid I direct my attention to what I want from the dream until it manifests itself. Stability is first priority, then my dream goals.

      I hope I could use this game plan to become proficient at stabilization and dream control!

      I've been avoiding thinking about stabilization or waking up but I've still been very consistently having 1 to 2 minute lucid dreams. I still don't have a handle on DIELDing either. I'm thinking this should be a focus of mine. I need to come up with a consistent way for me to prolong my lucid dreams and DEILD.

      My dream control and stabilization is so bad right now, I basically have to start over.

      I like to summarize how I do things in the simplest way possible. I'll try to test these things in my lucid dreams and see how they work out.

      Stabilization:
      Start every lucid dream by thinking "I'm dreaming", taking a deep breath and recalling my dream goal. During the dream, constantly expose my senses to new things to keep the dream going.

      Dream Control:
      Demand things from my dream and expect to get them. Persist until I get what I want, knowing that it's possible.

      I'll keep trying new things until I find something that works.

      Stabilization went well last night. I just stayed in one place too long. Hopefully this continues to work.

      I think I have something better for dream control.


      Stabilization:
      During the dream, I constantly expose my senses to new things to keep the dream going.

      Dream Control:
      I imagine the changes I want to make to the dream until they manifest themselves.


      I still want to try to think "I'm dreaming" upon become lucid. I think this helps to avoid low-level lucid dreams I have sometimes. This doesn't really fit under stabilization, though.

      When I'm trying to control the dream I imagine the changes I want to make until they happen. This is an effort to eliminate negative thoughts that I think is the root of my poor dream control.

      Looking forward to tonight!

      Last night went well dream control wise. I was able to transform into a dolphin! I didn't check to see if it was a full transformation, but I felt my body change, I got the beak, and my voice changed.

      Stabilization wise was okay. The dream lasted a couple of minutes.

      It's nice to see some progress!
