      Non Dream

      I've written out the nighttime routine I created. I'm trying to set it in stone, so to speak.

      1.Fall asleep trying to think about as little as possible.
      2.Upon becoming lucid, make sure the dream is vivid. If it's not, make it vivid by rubbing hands, looking around and focusing on details while saying "stabilize". Try to remember to keep it vivid during the dream.
      3.Upon waking, attempt to DEILD by making the ringing in the ears as loud as possible.
      4.If DEILDing fails, stay still and mentally back track as far back as the dream could be remembered.
      5.Write down the dream in as much detail as I can going forward. Assess whether to get a snack or drink.
      6.Repeat 1-5 until it's time to get up.
      7.Type dreams in online Dream journal.

      I'll keep a dream count going for the entire month to see how well the routine works. It seems to work well for me. I'm going to try to write down all of my dreams this month. My goal for the month 75 dreams, 20 of them lucid.

      Dream #1-I was walking through a suburban neighborhood towards a somewhat elaborate one story home. I walked through the backyard of their house, through a side door, and through a quaint kitchen to find my niece and nephew. I asked my nephew how his trip to Santa Cruz was. He seemed to enjoy it. My attention turned to the television in the living room. On it was what looked like a commercial for a baseball glove. It showed a second baseman making great plays would the glove. He described the glove as being a 12 (out of 10, I suppose). The end of the commercial turned to slapstick comedy as it showed the second baseman and the glove quickly growing proportionately. Then the player threw another player through a distant mountain. I found the stupidity of this amusing. I woke up.

      Lucid #1-I was in my bed when I felt something brushing me. I tried to do a nose plug but I couldn't move my arm. "Obviously, I'm dreaming", I thought. Next thing I know, I'm flying in the night on the broom that was brushing me. I quickly found that I could fly higher if I brushed the broom downwards. I saw a pool complex that looked familiar somehow, but I decided I wanted to fly to the ocean. I flew a bit higher and looked from it. I conveniently found I was just about flying over it. I dove into the moon lit water. Immediately I could see dolphins swimming around as usual. My plan was to ride one and transform into it. Out of the corner of my eye a spotted one that looked like it was going to pass me. I reached out my right hand and grabbed it's dorsal fin as it passed by. I got onto it's back and hugged it to hold on. The feeling of it's silky skin was incredible. I started to lose the dream at this point but could still feel it's skin. I tried to hold on to the dream like I was holding onto the dolphin. All of a sudden, the dolphin started biting me, it didn't like being held. My dream logic told me maybe if I let the dolphin eat me, I'll transform into it. I let the dolphin bite my arm off. The next thing I know, I can't move my arms or legs. Completely spent, I wanted to wake up. The scene changed to me being in a Japanese arcade. I was taunting a couple of kids at a game, explaining to them I wanted to wake up. I woke up.

      Dream #3-On a hilly open field next to an amusement park, there was an explosion which started a fire. Fire trucks rushed to the scene to put out the blaze. As I was watching this near the fence, a camel walked by. Since it was on higher ground than I was, I was a bit concerned it would poop on me. Next thing I remember, I was in the amusement park with a new backpack watching a mine train roller coaster. A boy asked me if I could guard row 8 for him. We then decided we would ride together. I woke up before we got the chance.
    2. 9/10 Stabilization Training-Lucid #251

      Non Dream

      After numerous fails, I'm trying harder to master stabilization. The first step is to find a nice routine to follow.

      I look out the window from my bed to find the sky filled with stars. It almost looks like some of them are moving like water. After I got up and I look at the sky more closely, I could see the Big Ben. I do a nose pinch and I can breathe. I think about what my goal was. I forgot what it was. I noticed I had some glasses on (I don't wear glasses in real life). I took them off but they kept regenerating themselves. I found myself thinking about my body so I decided to let it go. All of the sudden, I floated in the air uncontrollably but was able to lower myself just by imagining it. I was in a house similar to my dads now, in the living room. I finally remembered my goal of summoning a candy and examining it. I took a candy out of my pocket and looked at it. It was a small, clear sucker with a decoration of Snoopy in the middle. I smelled it but it didn't smell like anything. I tasted it but it didn't taste like anything. I looked around and saw a child on a wooden staircase. She was smiling at me. The dream was pretty vivid at this point. She probably wanted a candy. I woke up.

    3. Awesomeness with my crush-Lucid #210+#211

      by , 08-04-2013 at 05:23 PM (dolphin's dreams)

      Making out with my crush has been a lucid goal for quite some time. I've been intending to summon her for a couple weeks but haven't remembered to do it till now.

      Lucid #210-I was in my bed trying to remember a dream I had. I couldn't remember anything which was frustrating but also unusual as I've had above average recall lately. Something didn't feel right so I did a nose plug. I could breathe. I can't be dreaming, I thought. I must have not done it right. I did another nose plug and could breathe. I got up out of bed and turned to my backup reality check, which is flying. I went out of my room, down the hall, got a running start, and flew, phasing through the sliding glass door into the backyard before landing there. I thought this would be a nice romantic spot. I put my hand behind my back and called for my crush. My strategy was to wait for her hand and then hear her voice. I stood there for a few seconds before my patience ran out and I looked behind me. I could see somebody walking in the house. Then, the sliding glass door opened. The beautiful, young, short, blond girl with medium length straight hair came out. I summoned her perfectly. I gave her a hug, which she surprisingly refused at first, but eventually gave in. I woke up.

      Darn those short lucids! Luckily it was early in the night and I still had time to get lucid again.

      Lucid #211-I was waiting on a couple of old ladies. They reminded me that they had ordered the French onion soup. Darned soups! I keep forgetting about them! I tried to go to the kitchen to get their soup when I realized I wasn't at work, I was in a sporting goods store. I went back to the ladies and let them there wasn't any French onion soup because, you know, this wasn't a restaurant. They told me to go to Bundy (which I assume is a supermarket as I live by one named Lucky). I told them I would. I walked a safe distance away, making sure they weren't aware of me. I tried summoning my crush again, using the behind the hand trick. I waited for her soft little hand this time. When I felt it, I asked if it was her and she said it was. I turned around to find again I had summoned her perfectly. I hugged her again. This one was much better, a nice full body hug. We hugged for a few seconds. "Why don't you kiss me?" I asked her. She gave me a full kiss on the lips which was incredible. We then made out, kissing each other repeatedly as the dream faded away.

    4. A Taste of Death

      by , 03-19-2013 at 08:29 PM (dolphin's dreams)
      After a routine awakening I tried to go back to sleep. After a few minutes, without warning, a bat flew across my head and screeched. I noticed that I was now completely paralyzed. As my vision faded to black, I thought that I was dying. Instead, I woke up with my head under my sheets.
