    1. Me being myself

      by , 08-24-2019 at 03:09 PM
      I remember being in class and hearing the bell ringing. I tought "Oh, finally, time to go home", so i came back. Back at home i noticed that the bell rang because it was snack time . ohshit.jpg. I came back to class and i don't remember anything else, apart that the house that i came back was my hometown's, not actual one.

      I have decided to focus on Hukif's gravity check RC method. It feels natural to me, and I like his emphasis on doing what feels right and makes sense to me. I also like the fact that this form of ADA is very meditative on the present. Practicing it makes me feel more grounded in the present in real life, like I am realizing how often I am zoned out or avoiding things in real life. I have set an intention to "engage" when I find my self zoning out in real life. I hope that this habit will translate into a more active engaged mindset in my dreams also, leading to more lucidity.

      I was very encouraged that I was able to have a lucid on my first day trying, even if it was very short. I went into this night with a lot of confidence and expectation that I could do it again.
      I have been having shoulder pain at night from side sleeping that causes me to toss and turn throughout the night. I decided that rather then complain about this I would take it as a opportunity as I partially wake up in between sleep cycles throughout the night to turn over I think this could be used to set intention and possibly improve my lucid chances.
      Dream One: Towards the end of the night I did become lucid at the end of a dream and try to DEILD. I found myself back in the void, what a crazy place I had forgotten about. I remembered that I needed to stay calm and expect that if I focused I could enter another dream and remain lucid. I remember a feeling of floating in perfect blackness for what felt like 45 seconds or so. I couldn't see anything but I could feel a wind blowing all across my body. I stayed calm and focused on entering the next dream to come. Eventually fuzzy hazzy light started appearing in my peripheral vision, one of these "light blobs" did eventually form into a dream that I was "sucked" into! The dream that formed felt very vivid and clear, but I was to excited that I had done it and just wanted to find someone to tell that I had made it! I started looking for a DC to tell but lost lucidity at this point and it just became a normal, if very vivid, dream.

    4. 8-22-19 First dreams back

      by , 08-24-2019 at 06:27 AM
      Today I was inspired and excited to lucid dream again. I hadn't been back on the forums for a year or more so my techniques were definitely rusty. I prepared with some gravity reality checking throughout the day, prepared my favorite and most reliable RC (pinch nose and breath) and went to bed crazy excited to have a lucid dream.

      Dream One: I woke up around 5 in the morning naturally and tried to do a WILD. I had forgotten how strong and fascinating everything that goes along with falling asleep can be. I did fairly well but was way to excited on my first attempt to "fall asleep" and my mind was way to awake. I did catch a quick DILD/DEILD towards the end of the night, but forgot to stabilize and was to excited and lost lucidity quickly.
      Lesson learned: Focus on managing excitement.

    5. Reviewing previous work and a brief look at whats ahead of me

      by , 08-24-2019 at 06:21 AM
      It has been several years since I posted on Dreamviews, and I have missed it. Maybe once a year I will get on to re-read several of my favorite dreams that I would never have remembered if I hadn't taken the time to record them here, and I love it!

      For one year 2012-2013 I was determined and dedicated to lucid dreaming. In the 6 years since then I have continued to practice many of the dreaming techniques I learned, but I want more.

      I still would like to have the kind of on demand lucidity that people like Hukif seem to have.

      As I look at again taking up the kind of focus and commitment I believe it will take to improve my dreaming skills I realize that I will want to record these efforts again for future re-reading, so I'm back.

      One big reason that I stopped posting a daily dream journal last time was because it was taking me to long to post everyday, like upwards of an hour. So this time my efforts are going to be much more shorthand with only a quick daily log with breakthroughs more thoroughly explored.

      It feels good to be back.
