      ^^ I followed the link and read carefully; that does clear things up a bit.

      Though I think Mr. Pavlina's example is a bit extreme (even for his lifestyle, apparently), I Can understand what you're doing; sorry I didn't catch it before.

      That said, I'll stick to my recommendations, and offer another one: I really believe that you should try to reserve at least one period of sleep on your schedule that amounts to at least 90 minutes. Mr. Pavlina seems to have left out the restorative early stage of sleep that only happens if given time. Also, if your goal is lucid dreaming, you might consider building in a couple of longer nap periods, just to give you the opportunity to have some extended dream times.

      In any case, I still wish you luck, and hope you'll continue sharing your results!

      Thank you Sageous; I appreciate your presence and concern. I guess I have to stick to this for some time, then I can change from the results I will be getting. Yesterday was a total failure. I found out that each time am distracted I will disobey and each time I disobey I will fail. I guess I have to remain resolute and focused. The effort will continue today. Thanks for being here...

      Sageous! I think I have to take some of your advice. Napping for 30 minutes Instead of 20. I failed yesterday cos I was thinking what to do and what not to. From 23:00 to 6:00 or 7:00 I will nap for thirty minutes every hour. Thanks for being here.

      I have been failing. I found out that it's easier to wake up from a twenty minutes nap than thirty minutes nap. But the good news is that I notice the alarm going off and I wake up and put it off most of the time. I wake up with the feeling of deep sleep, with the irresistible desire to sleep on. I had LD in one of my 30 minutes nap. It was some how difficult to control, cos I tried teleportation but found myself speeding up. I thought of meditation but didn't want to find myself in a void... The effort continues. Thanks for being here

      Wow, this makes me want to attempt polyphasic sleep again. I can't with my current schedule, so props to you for going for it. You are still in a adaption period right? Maybe could think of failures more as "adapting" instead, so mentally can get through these hiccups better. I'm not sure though I had to go back to regular monophasic sleep because I couldn't keep up with the schedule and the adaption period was too hard on me.

      I started napping by 02:00. 02:00 and 03:00 was a success 4:00, 5:00 and 06:00 I was sleep-seating after putting off my alarm. Right now I am feeling slight headache. Thanks for being here

      I napped at 23:00. 00:00 to 6:00 was a total failure. Waking from nap 00:00 was very difficult. I woke up and was very tired, I couldn't think of anything apart from going back to o sleep. I woke up at 6:30 and felt very energetic and alive. I said to myself if only I can carry one singular thought of polyphasic adaptation that I will be able to subject and force my weak body Into sleeping polyphasicaly. Sleeping in 30 minutes. If I can hold one singular thought and stop distracting myself that I can see and observe my body passing through GAS (General adaptation syndrome). Thank you for being here

      Nap at 23:00 was ok. But others were swift that I had no memory of struggling to wake or to remain lying down. The 30 minutes between nap was like a minute that I couldn't differentiate the alarm that is waking me up from the one that is telling me to sleep. My alarm is on 30 minutes snooze time. So each time the alarm goes off I press the snooze button. but this time my brain was too sleepy to know when to stand or sleep. To solve this problem, I have set two alarms; one is to sleep and two is to wake up. This means that I have to force my sleeping brain to reset the alarm every hour. If I can't do it, it means I will wake up every morning with sadness in my heart. Thanks for being here.

      When my alarm went off (nap at 23:00), my brain thought of a reason to put it off. And I deed put it off without being on my feet. And I could remember soliloquising that "you will fall back asleep without knowing it" and I deed woke up and found out that it was 03:53 (4.4hours later). I guess I have to self-talk myself into waking up to my alarm to be on my feet after every 30 minutes nap.
      The self-talk goes thus: "before you switch off your alarm, wake up and be on your feet". Thank you for being here

      Hello fellow Oneironauts;
      I have not updated you guys for the past eight days now and i said i have to do it today that i have got the opportunity. Though some of it is not my making and some is the power of the subconsciouse over the conscious. for instance; sometimes i do not notice the alarm going off. sometimes i do and i simply switch it off. and my only link to world and alarm (InnJoo Halo X Gold) was taken from me by armed robbers on my way home from work. they flogged me with machete and took my phone away. but the effort has to continue. i want to build the character of lucid dreaming and i believe polyphasing will help me do that. with these thoughts in mind i decided to take it easy, and being patient with myself i came up with this sleeping schedule;
      22:30 to 02:00 (2.5hrs Core sleep)
      02:30 to 04:00 (1.5hrs Core sleep)
      04:30 nap for 30 minutes
      05:30 nap for 30 minutes
      06:30 nap for 30 minutes (optional)
      thanks for being here.

      I did not succeed in staying up all night and do not know when I actually went to bed. But I felt slight headache which is a sign I didn't sleep well at night. I have been awake for thirty minutes now. I returned from work at about 13:00 and watched some YouTube videos for about an hour, so I think I slept by 14:30 or there about and woke by 22:00. So I slept for 7.5hrs.
      Why I think I failed staying up all night yesterday is: I was just seating down and founded it difficult thinking about polyphasing. So no matter how difficult it is to get busy or think or pray. To stay awake, I have to get my mind and body busy. Thanks for being here

      Hello friends; the urge to sleep when you are sleep-deprived is irresistible and seductive. So to night I am going to train my consciousness to take control, not to sleep. I will be seating on a stool throughout the night and I will update you in the morning before I leave for work.

      I failed at 04:44. I was not totally unconscious when laid down but I had not enough strength to check what time is it. The urge to go to bed came to me severally. Sorry I didn't keep track of time, I was so tired!!!

      Hello friends;
      Naps 23:00, 00:00, 01:00, 02:00, 03:00 were successful but I over slept at 04:00. I woke up but didn't get out of bed. So I will say I slept from 04:00 to 06:30 i.e 2.5 hours. I had a dream in 04:00 nap. Effort continues today by 22:00 to 05:00 tomorrow morning and I will be perfect this time around. Thanks for being here...

      I have failed again! My failures always remind me that the one and only way to stay awake after each and every nap is to be on my feet and walk around irrespective of how difficult it may appear to be... I tried making this post in the morning but couldn't because of bad network
