      You could try making stabilization your primary goal every time once becoming lucid. That has helped me with the problem, as I usually struggle with it as well.

      Haha. A person with the same picture and context of LDing, I knew it couldn't be anyone else ^^ Nice LD count btw, looks like you're prepping for the next competition like you said!

      Hi! I think I just randomly found you?

      Slowly. Haven't been doing RCs as much as I'd like to admit until I made it a New Years resolution for 2016 to focus more on it. How about you?

      Just found out it wasn't those posts. So to answer your question since I'm banned... The dream was relatively short. I had a clear awareness and knew exactly what I wanted to do, so I stabilized the dream and set out to do it. So I'd say about three minutes.

      Did you see my new replies in your lucid dreaming post on Miiverse? I got banned again, was it because of them?! Damn... Lol

      So what are your methods for LDing? Do you keep a dream journal?
    9. View Conversation
      Yup, but at least you've done it!

      Wow! I always browse, then saw your username, and thought it couldn't be. Guess that would have been a perfect time to reality check. I almost never do them, I always forget until its too late. But yeah it's so cool to see you are a lucid dreamer! What a small world.

    Lucid Dreaming General Background:

    The most major problem for years was forming a solid, consistent strategy. First, there was this long period where I would use one, maybe two basic stabilization tactics if I remembered them, and then went for my shapeshifting-related goals. Sometimes I could get a couple minutes of lucidity. The majority of the time, they lasted less than 30 seconds. Despite this, I continued striving for only my goals for around 18 months.

    After that period of time, I got sick for 10 days, which set me back. It is my biggest drop-off in LD frequency up to the present day--46 LDs one month, and 7 the next. So, this suddenly became the biggest problem. Over the following 12 or so months, I switched my priority from in-dream goals to getting my rates back up to the 20-40/month range. My efforts were unsuccessful. Over the course of 2016, I continued to experiment with induction techniques, trying to find something that produced consistent results. As for in-dream stuff, I had the idea to use certain phrases to increase lucidity once I became lucid. Again, unsuccessful.

    >Problem: Cannot find consistent strategy for either induction, nor lucidity increase. Forgot stabilization techs.

    At this point, I shifted my priorities to this: Achieve minimum specifications for a lucid dream before doing my in-dream objectives. (Those minimum specs are lucidity Layer 3, and the surroundings feel real/look solid.)

    In September 2016, I thought, 'Hey, all these different phrases I've using haven't worked. What if I combine them into one scripted routine?' On September 27, I performed this new routine (that I dubbed simply, "The Procedure", later "Procedure M1") in a dream that I became lucid in via RC. BAM. Suddenly, I was at Layer 3. Variations of the Procedure have often produced desired results since. Stability was still an issue, however.

    >Problem: Cannot find consistent strategy for induction. Forgot stabilization techs.

    During the following months, I used the Procedure as much as I could whenever I became lucid. I experimented, but didn't put much thought to stability. Despite this, I've had a number of lucid dreams that have lasted over 10 minutes due to the Procedure; before, I wasn't getting anywhere near that.

    Then comes June 10, 2017. Coming off a long dry spell (according to my standards) of 17 days, I figured, 'Hey, what about WBTB? I had a very success rate with it the few times I used it in the past...what if I use it every other night?' Next morning, BAM, LD from WBTB. 3 days later, another with WBTB, and another 2 days after that. Then, on June 27, I reinstated DEILD as a primary tech, used to fill the gaps between nights in which I use WBTB. The following weeks were incredibly dense with LDs, both minor and major, and I spent around 3-4 hours in lucid dreams during the following July. Fun fact: The DEILDs didn't really work much; it just helped to have a backup strat.

    >Problem: Unreliable stabilization method.

    Now, I have incorporated basic stabilization techs, including but not limited to rubbing hands and spinning, into my Procedure M6(as in the 6th revision). I have tested it, and it seems to work.

    Now it comes to this:

    I have shifted my quality standards up again, and am going for the whole enchilada: Layer 4 Lucidity with a totally solid environment.

    I have added on some more stabilization prior to the Procedure, which I have dubbed "Initialization". This strategy has worked, and allows for me to perform the following Procedure in a relatively stable environment.

    I have developed the "Plan", which includes Initialization, 1st Procedure, 2nd Stabilization, 2nd Procedure, and 3rd Stabilization. In theory, the plan will result in reaching Layer 4 and well solidifying the environment, as long as those goals are remembered. I have yet to test this.

    I have developed the "Observing State," which involves observing sight, sound, and touch at the same time, with sight as the dominant sense. It is a WILD strategy that currently works best in non-WBTBs--and I am improving its efficiency (so I can properly relax) to include WBTBs. As a result of this effort towards WILD, DEILDs occasionally happen.

    I'm working towards being versatile enough to consistently have a high number of top-quality LDs when a good or regular sleep schedule isn't available. I'm balls-to-the-wall motivated, and several other major roadblocks(many not listed here) seem to have been overcome.

    I'd call that a great beginning. Hopefully I can put it all together before the start of the next lucid dreaming competition.

    August 9, 2015 | Roofed Forest, Feline, Lucario, Webs

    by Jacob46719 on 01-18-2018 at 03:55 AM
    I was in a biome that was a cross between Minecraft’s Roofed Forest and the Twilight Forest mod. The sky and the atmosphere were black, as it was totally night, as opposed to twilight. It was also impossible to see farther than 100ft in some directions. I followed a humanoid, feline creature to a small, ground-based clearing—the clearing had a much higher ceiling. In this clearing, I found that the humanoid I was following went all feline and was larger than I expected in a dreamy way. The creature, who lay motionless on the grass for a few seconds, appeared to be 2.5 feet long from head to toes, and had light coffee-colored fur with darker-colored stripes. Suddenly, [3sec Skip] the feline went away and left me with the realization that the clearing TF’d anyone who went there, including me, into a similar feline creature. The scene didn’t remain long enough for me to witness the transformation.
    [New Scene]
    I was in an unknown location(I forgot it), reading something, when the chest spike of a Lucario started forming on me. Thinking it was real life, I was like, “Is this really happening? … IT REALLY IS!” I was overjoyed about the fact that I was transforming into a Lucario.
    [New Scene]
    I spawned, crawled, or walked into a dark, all-wooden room with webs attached to the ceiling above. I think I crawled into the adjacent room to the left, which likely contained stairs. The room reset several times, each time making the webs a little taller and lower. At least one formed most of a fully-formed cobweb that was pulled into an unrealistic shape. The final time, I stood up and walked into the very dusty adjacent room to the left and saw clothes. Upon the sight of them, along with a lot of dust bunnies clinging to them(all the same size and shape), I said, “Clothes, of course!” *cough x times* “Why is it so dusty in here?” Soon after that, I woke up.

    August 3, 2015 | Japan, Gameboy logo, Store, Furball Creature

    by Jacob46719 on 01-12-2018 at 03:48 AM
    A scene in in my home town with very frequent, close lightning.
    [New Scene]
    Suddenly, I was in Japan, except the buildings were covered in only English words. Mom was driving, and we passed a building with the Gameboy logo on it. (There was not only a small building that was contiguous to adjacent buildings, but also a tall, rectangular tower with the Gameboy logo near the top.) Next, I found a sign that listed stores from top to bottom based on popularity. Walmart was at the top. It was nighttime when we parked in the lot. I requested something while trying to think of it, and it failed. Mom acted like she heard one, so she left into the store. We parked in an apparent southeast direction, while the front of Walmart faced west. There was short |skip| between seeing the sign and parking. Time change was included. Also, there weren’t very many other cars in the parking lot.
    [New Scene]
    Still in Japan, I was in a house with a magic ability that allows anyone who is inside to find anything they wanted. The house, viewed from outside, had the look of a business with a large waiting room for a 1st floor. From inside, it looked like a normal one-story house with 2 living rooms, a kitchen, and the usual hallway, [separated by a 6-inch wall] but anything in the hall was unknown. The outside walls I saw were the west and south walls. The interior lights had a warm glow. There was a much taller building adjacent and to the right of the house. There was this tribble-shaped, weird creature (with blue fur and a large, round nose) that was seeking an escape from a spider-like creature 15x his size. He got his wish granted and ran outside. However, the “spider” was still in the magic house. He wanted to find the furball to eat it, so he did. I stood nearby and watched. I thought that was interesting. Outside were some trees and some clearing. The trees were sparse at first, with most of them to the right of me. It was also night. Wanting to became a wolf again, I started acting like one, and ran on all fours toward whatever was in the woods. As time went on, I felt more and more wolf-like, but I still felt too human. Something wasn't right here.

    July 2015 | Bits and Bobs

    by Jacob46719 on 01-10-2018 at 05:47 PM
    -1-Some earthquakes were going off and triggering the gold farm chickens. Whenever they shook, specs of corn shot outwards.

    -2-I was playing Ocarina of Time as Captain Falcon at Lake Hylia. In my inventory, there were a bunch of spare bottles, some of which had green potion, or fairies. I decided to fill all the remaining empty bottles with fairies from the spawner. I pressed a button, and 3 fairies spawned. I captured one and put it away.

    -3-I exited a forest into the open just as a thunderstorm started. Very close lightning started to appear. Suddenly, I fell through a portal to a familiar room in a house. Looking back at it, it appeared to be closed. Then, I laid a trail of garbage bags for mom to follow to find where the portal was. Somehow, I got back to the ring of trees, and I fell through the portal again. Then, 80s music played.

    -4-I was sleeping outside when I saw a low pressure system in the sky about 20ft above the ground. It looked like it was carrying a band of snow and then it started snowing. Eventually, it turned to rain halfway down. I decided to leave then. Right after that, it came down in a solid sheet and then a solid block of rain. It represented heavy rain in another dream scene that was going on at the same time.

    -5-NASA discovered warp drive and built “train molecules.” They made a green ring out of them.

    -6-I was very high up in a large tree, talking with a female on another tree. Then, the snow began to slide, and it was very soon a huge, chunky avalanche. It toppled the tree I was hanging on to, and pushed me down the slope. I started to run down, but it was hard to run normally. I jumped and then leaped off of several tree tops, then landed on a ledge before a cliff. I jumped down about 20ft to the first boulder, the avalanche still tailing me. At this point, I wanted to be a wolf, so I decided to start acting like one and ran on all fours, hoping the change would take place. I leaped head-first into a creek, which annoyingly slowed me down a lot. Once I got out, I tried to sprint, but I continued to hit trees and push myself off of them in quick succession. Eventually, I got to the bottom of the hill, where 4 people were playing super mario 3d world.

    June 24, 2015 (L)x7 DEILDs | Truck off a Cliff, Splatoon, Laser Rifle

    by Jacob46719 on 01-09-2018 at 06:07 PM
    -1(L)-This started with a scene with a female driving a truck straight down a road. Then, something took control of the truck for a second, causing it to swerve off the road, off a cliff, down steep slopes and off another cliff. A few seconds later, the female DC in the truck arrived back to where I and some group were; on the road.
    -2(L)-In this epic dream, I got to play Splatoon in live action. The map I started at was very tiny. The first weapon I picked was the Splattershot(I think). Once I was dropped in, I thought that death meant actual death. But then, I got shot with ink and exploded, triggering a respawn. (During this, I was dream-blurred) I died again, walking around the rectangle, trying to get a shot to an opponent on the other side of the net. [Skip] Next, we walked to the adjacent map and got ourselves ready. I was wondering what weapon I should use. After a couple seconds, I picked the Splattershot Jr., but then I noticed a green gun that I had never seen before.
    |The gun was shaped like a cone, tapering off at the front. Then, the game started. Shots came out of my gun at roughly 150 rounds per minute. It shot a straight line of ink a very short distance. It also had another firing mode: one that shot a constant line of ink an even shorter distance. I was under the impression that, at point blank range, it would kill very quickly and efficiently. Instead, it did nothing besides make some electric particle effects. |
    Shortly after the game began, 3 inklings were sitting down, lined up, and doing nothing. I tried to shoot them with the “laser rifle’s” 2nd firing mode, only for it to do nothing. So, I pointed the ink beam at some TV monitors nearby.
    Also, during the game, it was announced that, for a very short time, Splatoon and Xenoblade Chronicles X would be available for $13 each.
    I counted 7 LDs in this DEILD chain.

    June 8-11, 2015 | Cities, Craziness

    by Jacob46719 on 01-07-2018 at 04:21 PM
    6/8/15 | Wolf, Tiny House, Island Cities
    -1-I was in some cave about 20ft from a campfire as a wolf. There were some dead animals around, but nobody cared. I slept there anyway. Setting: night, a cave near some woods.
    [New Scene]
    I entered what was supposed to be a house. It was dirty, rotting, and had a DC of similar age to me living in it. He said there were 30 mice in it, so I asked him, “How do you sleep with all that noise?” No answer. Next, the DC yelled, “When the sound reaches 80Db the channels organize themselves!” He was yelling because it was really hard to hear him behind a screen.
    [New Scene]
    I was messing with an island to give it a couple of cities. Originally, the island only had a few points of light, with the brighter ones in higher populated areas. Then, I expanded it to skyscrapers. As I tried to light up the place, standing with the top down, I added some light. For some reason, only the top few stories of the buildings were glowing. Gradually, ambient light within the cities increased.
    -2-This drunk guy stole a bunch of food and fled to some mountain. He wanted to find out how long he could survive there. Suddenly, I was at my grandparents' house, and we were all sitting around the table. Next, I was walking on some train tracks that led into a lake. [Skip] Looking out the window, I saw the tracks that ended in the lake. I opened the 2 windows, preparing to walk out there. Something I don’t remember stopped me from going out.
    [New Scene]
    I was drawing a path from one thing to another. It ended up a loop, ending at the start. The guy that traveled the path was annoyed by this, so he stole a couple of books.

    6/9/15 (L) L2 | Alt Dimension
    There was this box that I could slip into and through to another dimension and hide there. The path to get there was a closet building, and it led into another building that had beds and a TV. Some of the walls in both dimensions were covered in hanged clothes. [Skip] I ended up in a weird school that I was going to do something important in. [Skip] Yooka and Laylee were re-textured with TARDIS textures. I was lucid for a minute or two in the original alt dimension.
    Lucid Time: 1-2 minutes

    6/10/15 | Tornadoes, E3 2015, GameFAQs
    -1-I went to some place where I got to play Melee against mang0 on a dream version of Brinstar.
    [New Scene]
    I was eating some food outside on the coast of somewhere. There were steep hills around, including the ones in the water. Also, there was a lighthouse on the left. For some reason, it was pointing the light straight at me.
    -2-Tornadoes were happening at home everywhere. I could see most of them. There was also flooding. There was a 2mph crossing speed limit on an orange crosswalk to the south, and a 5mph one between my house and a neighbor's.
    [New Scene]
    As I was watching the Sony E3 2015 Press Conference, Fallout 4 was shown. Or maybe it was Elder Scrolls VI. I couldn’t tell. The sky and the area had a blue-green tint(slightly), and the narrator mentioned the Dominion. Suddenly, Source models of Mario and Link started running around. Then, Bethesda dropped a megaton. The announcer said, “Fallout 4…will be…exclusive…to Wii U.” Afterwards, I hopped on to GameFAQS and sure enough, the boards completely exploded—so much that most users were posting only large numbers.

    6/11/15 (L) L1 | Pokemon Theater, Alien Car, Strong Bad
    -1-There was a huge wooden room with tons of seats everywhere. Front-center: Screen. I watched Pokemon there. For some reason, the volume was turned all the way up, so I turned it down to a bearable level before turning on the Pokemon music. It was pretty accurate music too. I don’t remember the 2 DCs that were also present in the room. Earlier on, my mom was talking really loudly over the speakers.
    -2(L)-I became lucid for a moment in a green place.
    -3-Strong Bad hopped into an alien car with 2 pedals: left and right. Left was gas, right was brake, and sometimes they switched functions, and even occasionally did nothing. As he was driving, he slammed the brakes, which barely helped. He did a handbrake turn, then punched it in the other direction, which didn’t help at all. Eventually, the car came almost under SB’s control as he drove it back towards his house again. Then, he started recording his voice onto a yellow glowy thing. After 2 sentences, he was like, “Forget it, you guys will figure it out in the morning.” Suddenly, I was on a moving train with a convenient platform.
