      Task of the Month for February 2017




      NEW: Do you have a Task of the Month suggestion that you would love to get chosen?
      Now you have the chance to suggest new tasks of the month by clicking the
      Future Task of the Month Suggestion Thread.
      If you complete a current TOTM, you will be able to vote on suggestions for the next month!


      Introduction:
      This topic is for the Lucid Tasks that are assigned by the Lucid Task Club and the On-Topic Administrator. Please attempt any or all of these tasks throughout the month.

      Report back in this thread, even if you didn't successfully accomplish the task. Your efforts should make interesting reading! This is required in order to get credit, it is no longer sufficient just to say that you did it.

      How to get your wings

      When you complete a task: Go to your control panel, then to permission groups, and request to be in the group that applies to the task that you've done: one basic or both, one advanced or both, bonus or how many tasks of the year. Please note, that we now have wings for every task. Requesting to join the group will upon approval also grant you access to Lucid Task Club.

      Of course you still need to post the pertinent part of the dream here and link to your DJ entry.
      Format of your post:
      [Basic, Advanced...] -[Name of the Task] - [success or fail] - [pertinent part of a dream] - [link to dj]
      For example:
      Basic - Drive a car - success

      When you post about another successful attempt, please tell me if it was your first or second task from basic or advanced tasks, or first, second... seventh task from the task of the year. I need to know this so I know which wings to give you. If you only say "completed TOTY - flying car" , this doesn't tell me which wings with how many stars should I give you.

      Please, make sure you post here your attempts both failures and successes, this will make this post much more dynamic.

      Whoever completes any of these tasks gets the following goodies until the end of the month:
      • Your name will be displayed in ORANGE in the online members list at the bottom of the main forum page.
      • You will receive a special title and badge.
      • You will receive access to the "Lucid Task Club" which is a limited access forum for people that complete a lucid task each month. Members of this club can vote for submitted suggestions for the next month's tasks. Access to the Lucid Task Club will also grant you early access to the next month's tasks, giving you a 2-3 day window to keep your wings for the following month.

      Tasks for this month:

      Basic Task i - Ask a DC for a waking task of the month and try to complete it after waking.
      Basic Task ii - Open a book titled "secrets" and read what's inside. (Sensei)

      Advanced Task i - Spring is coming soon. Change the weather/climate from a cold winter to a warm spring/summer. (JadeGreen)
      Advanced Task ii - Find an Invisibility Cloak and create havock.(WaltersDreams)

      BONUS TASK!! - If you always dream in color, turn the dream black & white. If you dream in black & white, make the dream in colors. (PercyLucid)


      BEGINNER TASKS: (Anybody feel free to have fun with these, but you'll get wings only if you are a beginner. Some will change each month!)

      1. Slow down, look around, describe what you see.
      2. Touch the ground. What is it? Grass, asphalt?
      3. Look at your body. What are you wearing?
      4. Tell someone you are dreaming.
      5. Try to enter a random house, what do you find.
      6. Say something to an animal, does it reply to you.
      7. Try to float/fly a little.

      Completed both basic tasks and bonus task
      Feels exciting to get em in straight away. Had hoped task would be to meet the Buddha as was in the possible tasks for Feb. Still fun.

      Spoiler for Basic 1:
      Think of other tasks…TOTM, read a book with secrets written on it, ok, look in bedside looker- 1st book, small hardback black book, says secrets on it- then word gone/unreadable-Doh…look in it anyway out of curiosity, lovely dyed pinkish pages, pop up book at parts, like a nose and other things, wonder how would I remember all these images/drawings. Put it back and look for other books with secret written on it-


      Spoiler for Basic 2:
      As they are going downstairs, I say a bit ackwardly about the other TOTM where a DC gives me a task to do outside. Woman/ Granny, like my neighbours mum says yes but what about the trinity? Seems annoyed and religious. Ok…weird…I’ll leave. Bit cold/raining outside. No runners on. I start to look for them-realise it’s a dream and they will arrive or will be fine. My boxing boots are on as I walk out-into a room with some lads- easy going good connection with. Seems fine to ask them. Say about TOTM where in a LD have to ask a DC for a task to do outside. Theyre curious…I say its for a forum online and you get wings…it’s a bit silly but its fun and motivates you a bit (move from feeling a bit daft to ok with it), guy says yeh he gets it. I say can be anything, he holds an orange lighter at an angle and sparks it “like this?” and clicks it again. I say perfect thanks. (I've since lit a lighter in the waking world...it was awesome did have me saluting the DC as I did it


      Spoiler for Bonus:
      Think of other task of turning dream to back and white- would it be ok? Think of Sivasons post-everything being colour and projection and substanceless. OK Black and white…2 sides of the room (like a vertical band, about 10 % of room, goes b&W. Try again, same…band moves-A DC gets some B&W on face and hair-guy lying down has kilt up, grey hair and balls. Seems annoyed/grumpy old man. Other DC’s laugh.

      i attempted some tasks this morning. Basic I & II, Advanced I and Bonus.
      with accomplishing Advanced I i am pretty sure. Bonus failed and Basic I & II you have to decide.

      Spoiler for Basic I:
      i think what totm i could to and remember the other basic totm. i am sitting in a chair like in a bus. i turn around and there are two girls sitting. i excuse myself for interrupting and ask one of them to tell me a totm that i should do AFTER i wake up, she looked confused at first but then tells me an easy math calculation. [i cant remember the equation anymore] i tell her there has to be a better totm and she stands up and goes somewhere. now we room. i fly thru some walls where i think she is and we talk again but i dont remember what.

      Spoiler for Basic II:
      i am in a building with high ceilings. i jump around a little on different hights. i find it interesting that no matter how high something is when you aim for it and jump up you always get high enough.
      after some climbing at some metal beam i decide to think about the totms again. "okay what was the basic one i wanted to do?" at first i cant remember but then i do: find the book of secrets. i look down and instantly see two bookshelves. i am pretty happy with the fact how easily i summoned the shelves. i jump down and look into the first one. different books and magazines. some seem to look like waking ones i own. but nowhere there is secrets written on it. i look into brownish one. its a empty book i got by a friend of mine. it looks pretty similar. outside is written something like: treasure or safe or something. not secrets but in a way related to the sense of this word. i look inside and only on the first side are some notes. it looks private. something about bondage*another word* i have the feeling its not what i am looking for and close the book but open it again. the layout of the notices have changed a little but for some reason i dont keep reading but close the book and start to look in the other bookshelf. again it seems like i recognize some books. one looks like the black dream yoga book. for some reason i think i dont have to pick them up because i know them already...[to sad now when i think about it it would be very interesting to read some more and see what there is]

      Spoiler for Advanced I :
      ... i stand up and walk down the street. it is night. im thinking what to do next and this moments of reflection make me lucid. i start flying and fly close to the street straight thru different buildings. i phase thru all with ease. but now i start to worry that i might loose control because the scenery is changing so fast. i slow down and find myself now high in the air. i keep flying and look for a good spot to do the advanced task. i want something in the nature. i fly over a small hill with threes and a meadow. i land there and while landing i think about how i get snow and suddenly touching the ground everything around me is white. a lot of snow is lying around. but it seems like it snowed days ago. the snow is not fresh and slowly starts melting. i feel the cold around me. i seem to wear a pullover. i touch some of the snow. it is cold but not as could as ice should be. okay how i change the weather now? i look around. there are no leaves on the trees. i try to will better weather but i accept that this wont work "okay maybe i can swipe of the snow" i think and start swiping around and i manage to make the snow disappear right infront of my eyes. my swiping gestures gets bigger because this method seem to be very slowly but the parts i can make disappear gets bigger and bigger. after some time nearly no snow is there anymore. but it seems that this does not really change the atmosphere to a nice warm day...i approach a small naked plant. i will her to start growing and it does. it gets a little bigger and some branches start to spring. but its not enough.i pause and fly up again thru different stuff and find myself in a room again. i jump out and fly down again and suddenly i see full colors of green. i smash into the ground and find myself on a healthy and well nourished meadow. i see a lot of clover. wow the weather changed. i get up and look around and the trees start to bloom. i notice that its pretty comfy and warm. i wear a t-shirt now. i look into the sky and i see full orange and yellow tones of color at the horizon. i start with some gestures because its still kind of night. i want to make the sun appear. the full red and orange colors raise a little but instead of a sun i manage to rise some bright glowing stars. i make them disappear again and try again but now different symbols of the sun appear at the sky. some numbers appear next to them. okay so no typical sun nevermind. i let it go but notice that its gotten brighter...

      Spoiler for Bonus :
      i am lucid and i think about what to do next. i try to make my dream black and white. i am in a room and dont know how to start. for some reason i summon money out of my pocket. first there is only a used tissue but after get it out a lot of money is around. i think i asked a dc to give me some glasses that change my perseption into black and white. he give me a pair of glasses where one glass is a little brownish. i look at him and ask him "this will work?" he nods. i put them on and my vision changes. it gets a little darker and the colors get full and high contrast but not black and white. i put them of and next to me are different ones. i put them on but again not black and white. "hm" i start with swiping again to get ride of the color. it works in some way. everything i swipe over gets darker and less colorfull but a plant for example is still greenish in the end. i dont get it completely black and white. nevertheless the effects i created was pretty cool.

      I did advanced 1 in last night's lucid without even trying. Snow covered alien planet suddenly turned into a warm summer day mid-flight. Not sure if that counts.

      I hope I'm doing this correctly.
      This is my first time playing with a task.
      And I totally call myself a beginner.
      It was my first LD.
      I had been planning all along to try to fly when I realized I was in a LD.
      So beginner task #7 accomplished.

      And I think I'm suppose to link to my DJ?

      Great.. You need to go to your control panel at the top and apply to admissions groups.
      We may have to scare up the wing lady Gab if she don't see it right away..

      Bonus TOTM - turn everything black and white

      Spoiler for After becoming lucid and flying up into the sky...:
      From above the clouds the blue and green planet is spinning below me. I recall the bonus TOTM and turn everything black and white. Then the clouds rolls over the scene, so that everything is white except for what look like pencil lines marking the outlines of cloud shapes. Diving through the cloud and down onto a beach, the dream reverts to colour.

      Trying again, the beach becomes black and white. Clouds still cover the sky. There is no sun. It is a pebble beach and now the rocks are various shades of grey. The colourless sea laps against the shore. It feels... desolate... cold, empty. A dove lands nearby, and I manage to catch it in my hands. It feels warm against my palms and fingers.

      The dove studies me with a beady eye, it's head turned to one side. "Coo?" It suggests.
      "Yeah. Sure is depressing."
      The dove doesn't fly away even when it is released. I walk along the beach, feeling the pebbles shift under my bare feet. Do I have time to attempt a TOTY before the alarm? What other tasks are there? While trying to think of other things to do, I wake up.

      ... i stand up and walk down the street. it is night. im thinking what to do next and this moments of reflection make me lucid. i start flying and fly close to the street straight thru different buildings. i phase thru all with ease. but now i start to worry that i might loose control because the scenery is changing so fast. i slow down and find myself now high in the air. i keep flying and look for a good spot to do the advanced task. i want something in the nature. i fly over a small hill with threes and a meadow. i land there and while landing i think about how i get snow and suddenly touching the ground everything around me is white. a lot of snow is lying around. but it seems like it snowed days ago. the snow is not fresh and slowly starts melting. i feel the cold around me. i seem to wear a pullover. i touch some of the snow. it is cold but not as could as ice should be. okay how i change the weather now? i look around. there are no leaves on the trees. i try to will better weather but i accept that this wont work "okay maybe i can swipe of the snow" i think and start swiping around and i manage to make the snow disappear right infront of my eyes. my swiping gestures gets bigger because this method seem to be very slowly but the parts i can make disappear gets bigger and bigger. after some time nearly no snow is there anymore. but it seems that this does not really change the atmosphere to a nice warm day...i approach a small naked plant. i will her to start growing and it does. it gets a little bigger and some branches start to spring. but its not enough.i pause and fly up again thru different stuff and find myself in a room again. i jump out and fly down again and suddenly i see full colors of green. i smash into the ground and find myself on a healthy and well nourished meadow. i see a lot of clover. wow the weather changed. i get up and look around and the trees start to bloom. i notice that its pretty comfy and warm. i wear a t-shirt now. i look into the sky and i see full orange and yellow tones of color at the horizon. i start with some gestures because its still kind of night. i want to make the sun appear. the full red and orange colors raise a little but instead of a sun i manage to rise some bright glowing stars. i make them disappear again and try again but now different symbols of the sun appear at the sky. some numbers appear next to them. okay so no typical sun nevermind. i let it go but notice that its gotten brighter...

      Spoiler for Bonus :
      i am lucid and i think about what to do next. i try to make my dream black and white. i am in a room and dont know how to start. for some reason i summon money out of my pocket. first there is only a used tissue but after get it out a lot of money is around. i think i asked a dc to give me some glasses that change my perseption into black and white. he give me a pair of glasses where one glass is a little brownish. i look at him and ask him "this will work?" he nods. i put them on and my vision changes. it gets a little darker and the colors get full and high contrast but not black and white. i put them of and next to me are different ones. i put them on but again not black and white. "hm" i start with swiping again to get ride of the color. it works in some way. everything i swipe over gets darker and less colorfull but a plant for example is still greenish in the end. i dont get it completely black and white. nevertheless the effects i created was pretty cool.

      ... but i dont remember what.
      I don't think this was done, since you suppose to do the task after you wake up. Not easy (at least for me).

      ... outside is written something like: treasure or safe or something. not secrets but in a way related to the sense of this word. i look inside and only on the first side are some notes. it looks private. something about bondage*another word*
      This is close enough I think.

      I had been planning all along to try to fly when I realized I was in a LD.
      So beginner task #7 accomplished.

      And I think I'm suppose to link to my DJ?

      Welcome to TOTMs, thinkfirst

      Yes, please continue linking to your DJ entry and include relevant part of your dream here in the thread. If long, put it in a spoiler please.

      Awesome job on your lucid and huge congrats on your FIRST LD!! Welcome to the club and hope you will join us in more tasks.



      I made an attempt to find the Secrets book, but I failed. This was last day of January.

      Little while later I got to a dream again. I knew it's not as stable as the last one and I was worried I'll wake up again. So I rushed to look for some books to find the Book of Secrets from the TOTM.

      I found a bookcase and saw another pile of books. I look at them and pick one that's oldest looking one. It's big, thick, has an old looking dark brown leather cover. The title printed on it says MUWTAJIN. I lose lucidity here and decide to wake up to write down the title of the book.

      Completed bonus task!

      Spoiler for bonus :
      I become lucid.
      I see a pencil, and will it to draw something on a white piece of paper. I notice that the dream is black and white, so I convert it to colour. The pencil now draws on its side and draws an orange apple. Soon it is photorealistic. I fly around aimlessly...

      Second attempt at the Book of secrets TOTM - fail

      TOTM - Book of Secrets

      Later on while running around doing all kinds of stuff, I remembered the book TOTM. I start looking through drawers and cabinets. They are all full of cool stuff. Collections of rocks, all kinds of hardly identifiable things. I'm looking on the streets in campers, in houses, in many rooms. I finally start finding books. Looking at many covers, none come even close to saying "Secrets". For a while I amuse myself by reading, looking away and seeing how it changed. I'm even trying to will the title to change to secret. I try to write it on it with my finger too, but nothing works.

      2/11/2017 Task Of The Year Fail..
      Plane-Fly a plane and before you reach the destination, a time breach opens in front of you, fly through it. Where does it take you?
      ________ ___________ ___
      8:30pm Hang on..... I had to travel to another town and remembered the TOTY at the airport (Lucid now) On the way past the ATC shack I heard someone lost in the clouds on their radio and asked them "Where is he?" One of the guys said jokingly "Whats it to you?" I said "I'm going out there in the 172" and he asked "Where you going?" I said "Just out to the time tunnel" and he replied "You'll be ok with a straight out departure, no need to call before takeoff, Just report clear at five miles". I went to the hangar but temporarily forgot what I was doing when instead of the Cessna I spotted a lovely yellow surf board leaning against the wall "Yay, Just what I wanted". I took off with it but never made 5 miles because it was night with low scudding clouds and it started to rain and I didn't have any instruments.I could see dangerous towers all around so I set down in a vacant lot in the city, A man in a vehicle of sorts stopped and offered me a rag and a piece of thin, stretchy plastic, I tried to make a rain cover out of the plastic but it tore up so I tied the rag to the front of the surfboard for a handle, Said "Thanks" And had just taken off for back to the airport to change planes when I woke up ..

      I attempted the basic ToTM last night and I'm not sure if it counts. I succeeded in becoming lucid, remembering the task, and then asking a DC for a waking task, but they gave me a task that wasn't possible for me to complete in real life, so I couldn't complete the second part "try to complete it after waking".

      Spoiler for Relavent Part of Basic ToTM Dream:
      I realize I'm dreaming and remember the ToTM "Ask a DC for a waking task of the month and try to complete it after waking". I look around and see several DCs. I approach one and tell them that this is a dream. They don't seem surprised. Then I explain to them the idea of the ToTM and tell them that they need to give me a waking task. They just look at me strangely. I don't think I'll make much progress with them, so I leave them and go to the next nearest DC. I repeat the process and they again don't seem surprised when I tell them it's a dream. When I ask them for a task they say "how about flying?" I explain to them that that isn't possible for me to fly in real life and ask for another task. They refuse. Then I wake up.

      to TOTMs

      Sounds like you had great control and memory, explaining all that to DCs. But unfortunately the task is to complete what DCs tell you after you wake up. So I can't give you a credit for this one. Try again, looking forward to your attempts.

      Too bad. I'll try to find more cooperative DCs next time!

      basic ii completed

      Spoiler for relevant part:
      I find a book called 'Secrets" and open it... I find a page about a shamanic people devoted to lucid dreaming. They are called "Greenworld Shamans" In fact, they only exist in the dreamworld now. They are a dark-skinned people, who's favourite enviroment is a beautiful starry night.
