      Asking subconscious to do things

      I'd like to start out by saying that I believe lucid dreaming has much more practical uses than fulfilling sexual fantasies, flying around, or having fun. While these things are entertaining, they aren't using the dream's full potential.

      When you are dreaming, specifically when lucid, you have the opportunity to directly access the hidden parts of your brain. I have personally engaged in conversation with my subconscious, having it reveal many things about myself. However, I have never asked it to do anything.

      I'd like for a few people to do some specific tasks for me while lucid.

      Tasks:
      1 - Find any DC and ask it to remind you every now and then to remind you that you're dreaming. Make sure that the DC acknowledges and accepts your request. If it says no, move on to another DC. If you notice that the DC isn't helping you, go up to another one and ask for help, or reprimand the DC for not obeying your orders in the dream.

      2 - After task 1, ask to be brought to your subconscious. It is easiest to talk to if your subconscious is in human form, so if it's not then ask it to transform into one. It also help if your subconscious takes the form of yourself.

      3 - While in conversation with your subconscious, tell it to make you become lucid in the majority of your dreams. Again, make sure that it acknowledges you as the dreamer and that it is your subconscious. Make sure before you walk away from it that it accepts this request. A few moments later, ask it to repeat what you asked it to do. If it won't or can't do that, go back to task 2.

      4 - After waking up from talking to your subconscious, immediately record your dream and continue your regular night's sleep. Then reply the next day with the details of your encounter.

      5 - After one night of sleep the next day, see if your subconscious actually helps you out any. If not, report back. Also, if you become lucid, reprimand your subconscious for not obeying orders.


      The purpose of this experiment is to see just how much control over the subconscious we can actually have. If we can make it remind us to become lucid, then we can potentially ask it to do other things such as unlock learning and memory capacity, mastering the piano, and other things before thought impossible.

      Please comment if interested. I'd like to hear your results.

      I think my subconscious may kick my a*s if I treated it that way! I like the idea. It has a lot of merit, but after how ever long of dealing with DC, I still have never been able to make them say anything more complicated then catch phrases or a sentence at most. I bet it could be done if you get anyone to try. I will keep it in mind. Good one.

      Opps, edit: Now a dream entity (not DC) can talk your ear off for hours, but she won't hang around if your bossy.

      I actually do this on a daily basis. It is called..Subconscious training. Certainly you can train the mind to do almost anything you can think of. I talk to my subconscious regularly, I let my subconscious know, that i am in control, and that i expect whatever it is i command. By telling your subconscious what you want and what will happen, it will likely cooperate with you. The tone that you use is most important too. As i find the intent to be 2nd behind the tone of the voice.
      Dreams are meant to be used to create ideas. And hopefully, plant the seed of this idea, to another. Which will help build, a very powerful nation.

      So you have asked it to make you lucid?

      Excellent idea and plan, LucidPirate. I've also tried something similar to this on and off over the years, with very little success (my dream characters are a truly uncooperative crowd -- though very friendly).

      Maybe I'll follow your initiative and try again.

      Good luck!

      I found it briliant *-*

      I'm new to all this stuff and still haven't think about something like this...

      In my next LDs I'll try that, I think the results will be like using MILD.
      I think that if someone have good results by using MILD, maybe this can work good too.
      Both are basically "telling" to ourselves to remind us about something

      I don't have a long experience with Lucid Dreaming, but I'll try that and report the results

      Something like that has always been included in my "dreaming masterplan", though that plan is already quite significantly huge.
      But nice to bring it up here like that didn't think about writing that here yet. I'll probably post some results when I'll first get some.

      Wow. I like this idea!
      Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably canít. You know the month, the year, the day of the week; you have a schedule, a calendar... Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
      A fear of time running out.

      A couple of years ago a friend of mine asked his dream guide to make him lucid as much as possible. The next couple of nights this same friend reported back to us that it worked, and that he did in fact have multiple lucid dreams directly influenced by his dream guide. Now whether or not he was lying is beyond me, but I figured I'd put that out there for those looking for some sort of success story.

      The next lucid I have (whenever that may be -_-) I will surely attempt to talk with my subconscious. I'll try to have a decent lengthy conversation with it/him/her and report back. Expect me back in a few years considering how terrible my lucid count has been lately.

      This is something I do quite often, where I'm having trouble remembering something or maybe working hard on something, I simply take a step back and let all that information marinate "on the back burner". Usually after a little bit of time I have a completely new perspective about the matter and feel pretty refreshed, letting my subconscious do all the foot work. How this applies to dreaming I'm not really sure, but affirmation is definitely a type of subconscious hack that produces some good effects if enough energy is put into the thing you want accomplished, like a lucid dream, it just takes some effort and time thinking about that goal.

      Wow, I love this idea. I'm definitely going to try it next time I become lucid. My subconscious seems to be screwing with me lately though haha I've tried talking to it twice, with strange, unhelpful results. O.o Maybe this can make it quit it's antics? Hopefully! Thanks for the idea. =D

      I have been planning on doing this for a while, but normally when I get in a lucid dream I forget half of the things to do to stay in the dream and stay vivid and use techniques that I have never heard of to try and control my surroundings. Such as a red ball technique (probably thinking about the prestige) and use things like this to control dream characters and the world around me. I definitely want to try this. I will try five times and come back with a result!

      disclaimer: I only have about 1 or 2 lucid per week, so it might take a while. Haha.

      What is a DC? Sorry, I'm new .... >_<

      There have been 2 occurances during a lucid dream that I have felt I am in direct dialogue with my subconscious.

      The first was a month or two ago, and the second was just last night (one of the reasons I decided to find a forum on dreaming).

      They both consisted of everything going dark in my "dream vision". I then, through thought, asked a question about something that had been bothering me in waking life.

      The first time, I received an answer through HEARING my own voice in my head. Like as though I was speaking into my own ear. This actually happened to me once during waking life on the tail-end of an LSD trip (as I was drifting off to sleep)

      The answer the first time was garbled, like I couldn't understand, so I asked again. The second time it spoke, it was extremely clear and answered my question shortly and sternly.


      Last night I was in a sort of semi-state of lucidity, where I started to choose my actions in a dream I was already having, which was unrelated but directly followed a recurring dream I have been having for years. I asked one of the characters (oh I guess DC means 'dream character'?) a question about why I keep having this dream but they could not answer, they literally could not speak. Then, without any intention from myself, it cut to the blackness. I asked the question again. This time it answered with a symbol. It appeared gradually, white lines rising from the blackness. (the blackness is never completly black i should note, it's kind of like what you see when you close your eyes.)

      A very complex formation of a combination of Celtic and Norse knots appeared over a diamond shape/square turned 45 degrees. I told it that I did not understand what this meant and askd if it could show me in words.

      Immediately the symbol was replaced by a word beginning with F (and I am so annoyed because I cannot remember what it was!) and then two other words, one very short word, and I think the other was "believe". I am uncertain though because after this I had 2 other dreams so when I woke up the memories of the earlier ones began to fade.

      I had the overwhelming sense of certainty that the symbol was extremely important and that I was truly delving into my subconscious on a deeper level than before. I also had the sense that this ability was strengthened by the first dream group meeting that I hosted the day before.

      I just wish I could remember the words. This dream has been plaguing me for so long. I am going to try asking again and again until I resolve this.
