      6 dreams? Wow~o.o

      Reading about Goku and the weird looking creatures reminds me of my past dream but i guess it's bound to happen if you watch anime.
      I can't imagine how awkward it must feel to be a guy and having to use those urinals on the walls. Especially with people who might try to sneak a peek at you. > < Good thing it was a dream but than again it might just seem awkward cause i'm a female.

      : ] It was really sweet of you to give your friend that kind of helpful advice. Shared dream or not. Its true sometimes we do have to fall in order to get back up again.

      Also, it's cool that you play Mario 64. I don't have a Nintendo 64 anymore but I did play the game on computer too before. That game was a lot of fun.

      Thanks DawnEye11! It means a lot that you're reading these things. Yeah, I like the compassionate attitude towards dream figures. Especially the threatening ones. Knowing they are part of me, it comes naturally, so far.

      About the dream pain - Here's a funny story! I once fell asleep with my tongue between my teeth. I had a dream that I was piercing my tongue with a pen. I became lucid but still couldn't stop the pain. Then I woke up and realized the dream was mimicing the pain of biting my tongue. LOL! That was a silly one.
      ^w^Your welcome~Its great that it comes naturally for you. Lol I would have never expected something like that either. Good thing you woke up when you did. I wonder what made you bite your tongue while asleep.

      DawnEye11 - I didn't find them strange. I appreciated being able to read them. I think its awesome when people post their dreams because I get to read them.

      McDreamy - Thanks! Yeah, it was silly indeed. I made a thread in the dream recall section about how I switched from writing to voice recording. A few things I like about it are that it doesn't require any lighting. It allows me to visualize the dream as I record it. And if any last details pop into mind after my initial bout of recording, its easy to flick the button and add them. Where as with writing I'd have to move a lot more to write down one little thing, and that might decrease my chances of getting that detail.

      The downside to voice recording (one of them) I found is that it is a little trickier to navigate through the whole audio file for a specific detail or segment. Where as with hand writing, its easy to see everything thats there.

      I have to second DawnEye's comment: this is some incredible dream recall! Too bad you talked yourself out of the reality check in Church haha. You use a voice recorder rather than pen and paper? Do you notice a difference?

      It was nice how you thought of the beast. I dislike violent scenes too unless i get mad or its justified in some way
      I do the same thing when i get sleep paralysis as well. Saying i love you definetly helps. The thing that gets me is the thought of being vulnerable but if there is nothing to fear than we arent really vulnerable. Plus, sleep paralysis just keeps us from moving our WL body so it is really keeping us safe i guess.Hmm...the part about having nightmares and feeling pain the next day is odd. There are rare times when i do wake up feeling subtle pain for a few secs but it was either just my mind playing tricks or unrelated WL pain that came into the dream.I totally agree that building your lucid dream skills will help with the nightmares and it will definitely make you stronger.Btw its okay if your scared but when your scared, relax yourself and surround yourself with positive thoughts. I wish i could give better advice but after having more lucids with that mind set you'll be confident enough cause youll really see there was nothing to fear in the first place.

      Well I appreciate the compliment! And thanks for reading my DJ. I recognize your user name because the first time I got onto this dream journal section, your DJ was the newest one, on top of the page. So the way the screen was laid out at the time, I got to read a bunch of your DJ entries. I didn't comment or anything due to not having an account yet.
      No problem~ I enjoyed reading it and i'm motivated to do better too. Really? Hehe That's cool. It's okay if you didnt comment. It makes me happy to know that you read them. Thanks and i hope my entries weren't too random/strange for you since i feel they can be quite out there at times.

      Your welcome. ^w^ That's understandable. Remembering dreams is like remembering stuff from WL. You don't recall 100% what happened. Although i agree that at times we do forget the really good parts.

      Thanks! I still ALWAYS have parts of my dreams where I can only remember a glimpse though. Its like I can tell something was there, but just not much about it. ANd sometimes those seem like some really interesting parts.

      I have tried choline but I paired it with galantamine (a fairly common lucid dreaming combination), but I have never taken it anywhere near a supplemental frequency which it sounds like you might be considering for choline. It seems I've been trying that combo no more than once per month lately and sometimes it's a few months between. I use it for nice long lucid dreams. You might research if it it is easy to build a tolerance to choline making it less effective (galantamine has this issue and thus you should space out any use of it 3-4 days minimum). I kind of doubt choline has big tolerance issues since it is naturally in a good number of animal products, but I really have no idea. It might also be worth discussing with your doctor to see if they have any input.

      You know, you're recall seems well above average so I am not sure you need to change anything up. You also seem to be getting a good frequency of lucid dreams, better than mine right now. That said, I think that I have read that choline is an important part of one's diet.

      I recently was doing research and found I might be choline deficient. Its my understanding that choline plays a big role in dream recall? But I don't eat animal products so I have a lot less choline. Did you ever try choline? I might get bulk choline for 10 dollars for 100 grams and try it. Maybe it will help me recall those parts of my dreams I get stuck on.

      I read the whole thing indeed. The details make the image of the dream more rich, that's a good thing...just a lot of work I'm sure. I know that I need to spend more time with recall. I know some people just use brief descriptions and I started to do that but I think it has impacted my lucid practice and success lately (not the only thing impacting it, but a part of it) so I am putting more focus back into recall. I used to spend a good amount of time laying in bed going through the recall and I like how you noted somewhere that it increases your chances for DEILD, which I knew, but none-the-less neglected.

      Thanks fogelbise! I can't believe you read the whole thing (or even tried). Its not actually as much dream recall as it looks like, I just make every dream detail very wordy! LOL

      Great recall and congrats on the lucids Charles! When I read that opening paragraph, I realized I need to treat my recall with more importance otherwise it will never be as lengthy as yours here. Great stuff!
