    3-25-13 Dream Journal

    Technique: Went to bed at 1:30 and got up at 11:00. I was supper exhausted but managed to set an alarm for 6:00 to try a WBTB WILD.

    I don't remember having any dreams up until 6:00 when my alarm went off. After that I tried a WILD but of course it failed, I fell asleep to quickly. I did have three really good dreams after that though, and maybe one more *cough*

    Results: Dream color code: RL/Comments - Non Lucid - Lucid

    Dream One: I am in Russia, with a group of friends. We explore an abandoned warehouse and break a couple windows. We stop by some shops, everything is very expensive. We go to a restaurant, everything there is very expensive also, and they don't sell vodka?? In Russia? I get into an argument with the waiter because I know he is lying to me.

    Dream Two: I am exploring a city, I think it is London. I am with my family (not my family from RL, I just feel like they are family). We walk around for a long time and they share where they are working and whatever they are going through. We get to our destination, an apartment complex.

    I have poor recall of what we did in the room, but strangely I have a VERY strong emotional reaction. I can't remember what has happened, all I know is that someone has crossed a line, and they are going to pay for it.

    I am around a table with maybe fifteen people, more like board members. I don't remember the conversation but I know that I was very serious and that I participated in the discussion.

    Afterwards I was shown a white board with a puzzle on it. To find the person that has harmed us we would need to solve this puzzle.

    I am very focused on it. I know that I can solve this puzzle! No matter how long it takes!

    I kind of realize that I am in a dream, and it is important that I memorize this puzzle so that I can solve it latter. I start trying to place it in my memory palace.
    I have been training my mind for months in the method of loci and the memory journey. It is a technique that helps me improve my memory. If you want to learn more about it here is a link The Journey Method - Mnemonics Training from MindTools.com

    Side Note: I learned in this dream that whilst dreaming I cannot access my memory palace! It was a very disturbing realization. Maybe it was just because this dream was so unstable?

    I am looking at the board trying to memorize it anyway. I want to memorize as much as possible before I wake up. Some time latter the dream starts to fade.

    Side Note: I don't remember anything about the puzzle

    Dream Three: Darn it I can't remember this one anymore! I could remember when I got out of bed, I know I could. Now an hour later it's gone

    Analysis: Hmmmm, I still need to work on my recall techniques. I may need to start keeping a pad near my bed to record major plot details. I have been resisting this because I don't want to interrupt my sleep. Maybe in the short run this will be necessary though until my recall improves.

      I think you are doing great!
      Ever since I registered here, I am trying to write down at least something in my DJ as well as post it here when I have time.
      It's been like two weeks and I have lots of pages, and as I can see so do you. Imagine your dream recall if you really manage to be committed to remembering and noting these things after a year or so! I am also sure that we will eventually learn to WILD and once we learn it will probably be like getting back to riding a bike, this is my impression from posts around here.

      Apart for that, I have regressed a bit from failing to WILD to failing to try to WILD, quite tired and not on bed schedule again. But anyways keep it going!
