      Hi, I have been working with the MILD technique on and off for a few years now. On and off because I never really understood how MILD worked, did it incorrectly, and never got anything out of it. Then, it finally *clicked* and I have had 3 lucid dreams this past week.

      Hey, I enjoyed reading this and feel like I'm taking something away from your comments at the bottom for what helps you get lucid with WBTB + MILD, which is the same combo I've been working with since I've started. Putting emphasis on the intention "to remember" as you have makes sense. I've been working with this on and off for almost a year now and sometimes it seems easier than others.

      How long have you been working with the MILD technique?

      Hey, that's an interesting though, wRemembrandt. I usually stay away for 30-45 minutes but maybe long could be better. Does it still seem to be working for you?

      Interesting, I have often thought of doing that. I think the problem would be for me that I would be acting out meditating in the dream as opposed to gaining any insight from the dream experience.

      Well Done on your WILD. I have only ever managed DILDs but I do tend to enjoy them and get a few things done. Some are very short like just waking up from nightmares but others can be longer. Try to plan something to do and visualise it while you are awake and before sleep. I want to meditate in my dream but I have to work on this if I am to succeed.

      Thats cool that you can just watch your thoughts go by. How long have you been meditating? I just started and was wondering how long it would take to get decent at it. Thanks! Nice dream.

      Cool. I used to have dreams like this. I would close my eyes and another set would open. I would briefly see another version of my room. Very rare but sometimes I entered lucids fully this way. Your mind has to be in the right state for this.

      I just really really really really really wanted a dream companion/character. Maybe I am doing this backwards.
      No worries, man. Everyone has their own method and some work better than others. I have personally found it easier to stay lucid with a companion to help me make sense of things but that's just me. I'm also making it a point to send for someone whenever I become lucid in a dream.

      Could you describe to me your meditation process in detail?

      I spent months trying to get consistent lucid dreams through meditations and got backwards results; the meditation was actually hurting the quality and lucidity of my dreams. I feel like I might have been doing something wrong, so I'd like to hear what you were doing.

      I totally agree with you. The simplest form. Not so easy, but the best for the long time run. I have problems with lazyness, and getting over the motivational roller-coaster. But, I improve, and when I am doing it "harder" (no agression), then all the qualitys around dreaming are really improving. "I am" in sitting and before sleeping meditation, and "I am" in active meditation (mindfulness). To be ownest, mostly I am using a focus point. Breath, voices, visuals, body feeling etc, because maintaining the "observation" of my existence (observing the observer with meta awareness) is really a hard job, and in my best moments, it is clear (withouth thoughts) for 1-max.2 minutes. I like to make walking meditation. Then I try this merciless "I am technic". I know, it sounds crazy, and unbelievable, but if(!) I maintain this perfect silence, with obserwing me in the deep meaning (I am) for 5-10 minutes, without letting the "automatic" thoughts in my mind, I experience a quite shocking (in positive meaning) changing in my consciousness. There are changings in my visuals (clearer and foggy-aura thing at once - cant explain), time and space (I am archaic, and objective-subjective connects), and I have rushes of laughing. When I "step over this barrier" and step into this, the holding back of the thoughts effort becomes childrens play. You do it with your little finger. There is a strong intensity in the here and now silence. There, in the moment of "nothing" you are living hundred times "stronger". I am falling out from this experience, because I begin to analyze all this intensive-happy-beauty with my thoughts. I had this wonderfull success few times, and in all cases the same night I had a lucid dream. I remember, that one time in this hightened existence, I was saying: I am a lucid dreamer. Just one time. So, I stay by this path, and I dont care how long it takes for me, but I want to master it. Good luck for you!

      I've been trying to rebuild myself with meditation lately. For years I've done lucid dreaming with RCs and Autosuggestion but it never produced the reliability of lucid dreams that I was hoping for. The thing that bugged me was that they came randomly.

      Forming the habit isn't easy. I started on sept 13th, writing down every day that I meditated and how much, and even drawing up a chart to see how dreams are affected on days that I meditate more. Sadly, I was pretty bad at forming the habit, at least in the beginning, but as I've had the accountability of the chart for myself, I've been getting better about meditating daily. (I'm on a four day streak of meditations, and had a semi-lucid last night.)

      With the chart, I've seen that there is a definite improvement in my dreams on the nights that I do meditate. I've meditated 7 out of the (I think 20 something nights) and the two lucid dreams I've had since I started have both been on nights that I've meditated. (Theres a nice boost in recall two. Nights that I meditate usually I recall two or three dreams rather than just one.) But I have yet to have meditation work for incubating dreams.

      I know there's the Dream Yoga course, and maybe I'll try it in the future. But I want to give my own technique a fair trial first, though. (Sorry for long comment about what I'm doing, but I haven't really gotten to talk about my new approach with others much.)

      Of course dream journaling is important too. I am becoming more diligent in writing down my dreams every single time I wake up.
      Another good habit to have regardless of what you are doing is going to bed on time. I often find that improves my recall and chances for lucidity greatly.

      Congrats on the two lucids in one night. It's awesome that you can carry that awareness over following your WBTB. One Dream Yoga practice I've always stuck with since I started was 'Be Here Now' in sivason's class (or meditations very similar in essence) as it helps so much with LDing as well as the rest of life!
