      Anyone ever feel like they are at the top of their game with lucid dreaming, like your having amazing dreams, some memorable ones that might be transcendental or others that are beyond dreaming related than suddenly you enter a slump where you feel like you are separated from the dream world or cut off from it for a while. I guess you could call that a dry spell but its not like I'm completly cut off from it. It feels like I'm getting scraps of what could be amazing mixed in with stale dreams. I have been waiting for a memorable non lucid more than i tried to be lucid though. Maybe that's my problem.

      The only interesting thing i've done recently in a dream is mess around with a shadow in a reoccuring setting. Now i dont feel like it was so great anymore._-_

      January was maybe the best period of lucid dreaming I've ever had. I made huge leaps of progress and had some awesome dreams. But except a few seconds of WILD yesterday I've been on a dry spell since. Almost always when I don't get lucid, like in the last few weeks, it's because of a lack of trying. Why I don't try is a different question. Usually just because I'm lazy and undisciplined about a lot of things and sometimes about everything for a few weeks...except maybe keeping my apartment clean... I always do that I like to clean and put things back in their place... Anyways I'm turning my focus back on again starting yesterday. Join me!

      Why do you think you're waiting for a memorable non-lucid?

      It's great that you started the year with awesome lucids and progressed. Sorry about the dry spell though. Lol you may have been lazy but its good your a tidy person. You wouldn't want to end up with a dirty apartment like from the hoarders buried alive show. I wish I could motivate myself enough to start with you but I'm not sure what to do either.I'm waiting for a memorable non lucid because I kind of feel odd having to direct my dreams in a way. I guess I was hoping for a nice surprise in a dream but nope. I guess good things don't come to those who wait when it comes to dreams. : P

      All in all what you want is an interesting dream life no? So if you don't lucid then you're skipping out on a big part of the potential for that. Unless you ONLY lucid dream I guess. Ordinary dreams definitely have their place and value. But I definitely want to have both. And lots of interesting undirected stuff can happen in LD's! Just get weird with it

      My most memorable dreams have been lucids, especially the kind that can hardly be controlled at all. So much weird stuff can happen. I remember one where I was drawn by this loud strange tone that warped the whole dream into the wall, everything went white, and I from there on out I couldn't do anything. I was presented with a new situation, decided what to do.. And BAM! New scene, make your choice with no info to go on. Next scene. There were so many different scenarios... some where I had no body. But whatever bodypart I decided to use would appear. In one I fell through space past planets and when I eventually made my choice to reach out for one, I got a hand and the planet turned into a marble... In one scene I asked a friend if this was some sort of test and if we could stop and do a normal lucid instead and I think he cut my thumb off. So yeah... I would go for memorable dreams... not just memorable non-lucids.

      That's true. I suppose i should focus on lucids too. I'm still dissapointed in my non lucids being so stale though. I kind of want to be unaware its a dream for some reason though now that i think about it. I use to get some pretty great non lucids and i miss having them.Thanks for your examples of how lucid dreaming is fun though. I couldn't help but laugh when i read he cut off your thumb as i imagined you said it in excited tone. I also forgot about stuff like that as i focused on the possibilities of a non lucid. Maybe that's why i feel dissconnected. Thanks for the motivation Vader. I know i can't only just take advice if i want results so ill push myself a bit till i can feel the excitement again.

      Uhh okay I had a long ranting post about all the stale and uninteresting dreams i've had written but the site is really laggy on my end right now and it got deleted. Even when I clicked 'restore auto saved content' it only gave me back the first couple sentences.

      The only really meaningful thing that post said was that maybe you and me should get serious about lucid dreaming again. Having someone to bounce your goals, ideas and aspirations off of and to talk with you and get your mind actively thinking about lucid dreaming again, making it more than a routine will probably kill those stale dreams in short order. We should start posting to our dream journals every day and bouncing ideas off on the forums. I don't know about doing the spring comp as I'm sure with the position I'm presently in I'd lose out even if I were placed in the beginner league.

      Aw, thats happened to me a couple of times before too. You cant really press back to restore it if you dont preview it so that sucks. Thats just what i do to restore it just in case.

      Yeah, i dont know if I'm up for doing the competition either. I don't know anyone interested in lucid dreaming now. I could try bouncing off ideas but i dont have an idea yet. I will try to post something on my journal but do you have any goals or ideas?The only thing that comes to mind is exploring a settimg.Also, thanks for the advice.

      Yes, they do.

      Yes, great LD's result from lots of mindfulness, discipline, and practice, but sometimes they take a while to come around -- and sometimes they stubbornly refuse to be anything special when they do. Though NLD's tend to follow your waking-life mindset (hint, hint), they too might seem dull or empty at times -- especially during stretches where you are remembering very few of them.

      When either of those things happen, patience becomes your primary tool: knowing that your dreams will be great again soon, or perhaps are already regularly great, but you're just having trouble remembering them, can be a very powerful tool -- just as assuming that your dreams have stopped giving is a powerful force for guaranteeing that they will stop giving. Also, patience gives you the strength to keep doing the daywork that sustains your lucidity and recall skills through long dry spells.

      I've been at this since the 1970's, DawnEye, and have had my share of dry spells -- some that lasted years (and were pretty much all my fault, BTW). But one important thing I learned through these droughts was to hold onto patience. Your dreams will come around again; in a very real sense they must do so because you are who you are, and your dreaming mind is always working to reflect that.

      I put myself on a positive mind set for months. But i suppose my buried negativity possibly drained my recall or chances for it. I've still been getting lucid at times thanks to some intent but after a while i do lose interest in them. Maybe cause I've accepted how they are short now while i put most of my attention on other things in WL.

      I dont do rcs, but i should start writing my dreams down again. Before my recall lasted a good amount of time after i woke up though so this has been dissapointing.

      Wow, the 1970s? That is a long time. : ) Thanks for the advice Sageous. I hope itll reflect more positive things. Meanwhile ill look at patience from a different perspective and try journaling again. Was going to write today but i forgot what happened.
