    1. Distractions

      by , 12-16-2018 at 12:52 PM
      Catch up sleep and counting anchor after dream journalling gave me a couple LD's tonight
      Tried to stabilize and do my dream plan but lost myself talking with dream characters and lost lucidity
      Keeping your intention forefront and urgent is lucidity saving
      Need to work a little more with my dream plan so that whatever situation i happen to be, i can work from there instead of trying to solve a problem

    2. Urine induced lucid dream

      by , 01-29-2017 at 11:31 AM
      After a 45 minute WBTB, without exposure to artificial light, decided to drink a cup of coffee and half a banana.

      It took some 30 mins or so to fall asleep, although i expected to remain awake ( which alleviated the pressure and fear of failure so to speak)

      In the dream i feel an urge to pee, so i have a false awakening and go to WC but it does not relieve me, so this makes me remember to RC

      The LD lasted until the urge was too strong to remain asleep

      This was an interesting finding, and surely opens some avenues for experimentation. There is already a technique called urine initiated lucid dream. It can generate false awakenings about using WC and this can be exploited to realize lucidity

      This cup of coffe had a strange diuretic effect. I did not drink water during WBTB

      I probably can substitute water for coffee, although i may miss the coffe stimulating effect on mind faculties

      The urge to urinate can be a trigger to RC and if the urge remains after peeing should be a sign one is using a dream body.

      If one is well hydrated, proabably there will be more than 6 opportunities to pee in a day and to build this pee-RC reflex. And if one trains to remain with the urge to pee and not immediately visit the WC ( which must happen if one is to remain in bed ) it can also be used to RC at every urge you feel. But be careful not to change your bladder habits or disturb its autonomic functioning. Be aware that you can also urinate in your bed, it might happen in theory.. But if you get lucid before peeing it should be no problem

      This urge can also be used to wake up and WBTB

      Gonna keep some experimentation on this

    3. TOTM- Find a forgotten Christmas present under the tree and open it- success

      by , 01-07-2017 at 09:52 AM
      DEiILD/WILD after natural awakening

      OBE style exit. Get out of bed, open my room stores and window and jump while watching my hands to keep senses engaged.

      I arrive at the 0 floor and find an open hall. I enter it while still trying to stabilize and deepen my senses. I try to remember TOTM and the first i decide because i think it will be easiest is to find the christhmas present.
      So, as i turn back i see a christhmas pine and the present in a red wood box.
      I open with and there's another red box inside, something like the marioskas. Some impatience arises, as i find this will become an infinite regression lol. The last box had only, yeah, ahh... money. The coins i have saved during the year or so, you know the coins with the lowest value we carry in the pockets and gather at the end of the day, don't know how it is called in English.

      Then, i go outside and begin singing that i am lucid and don't give a fuck what dream characters think, then faded and could not DEILD

    4. another WILD success

      by , 10-18-2015 at 01:49 PM
      Bed time : 23h. Woke up naturallly at 3:40. Listen to the tape twice (30min). Woke up from dream at 5:30

      2nd night in a row where i woke up naturally and listened to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irzDKzALjoQ, while focusing on body sensations and, sporadically, on visual colours (phospenes) after which i let myself fall asleep while retaining some awareness of the body. After some time, which i didnīt notice, the hypnagogic sensatons began and as usually i begin the drem as soon as i feel i can move my dream (lighter) body and get out of bed.

      My lucid confidence is increasing ! Hope this good streak continues ! For a long time, i am beginning to think it's better to have a previous dream plan

    7. 2nd night

      by , 02-14-2015 at 02:13 PM
      On my second attempt with WILD i succeeded again, this time in a OBE fashion in which i felt my body becoming more and more numb and i just had to imagine some movement until it felt real. I think i am going too fast here, and i probably should allow the dreamscape to form first. Instead i force my mind to put me in a bedroom, with this approach.

      The dream was not interrresting, and it was short again, probably as a result of overlap of input between waking and dream bodies, that's why i think i am going too fast

      Anyway, i keep excited about my WILD mindset, and it's progress. So let's see if can keep my good run. And i really hope this time i will master natural DEILD (wo alarm) drop by drop.

    8. playing with a clone of myself

      by , 02-13-2015 at 07:11 PM
      WILD/DILD (?) - i donīt know exactly how i got into this dream but i am exploring and refining a WILD approach and so i think it had something to do with it ( in my experience many DILDs result from WILD attempts and vice-versa)

      Very short lucid: So i realize i am dreaming. I am with a clone of myself and i am touching it and playing with it, looking at it and whatnot..I think to myself that if i can have a clone in my dreams maybe i can remain lucid for a longer time.

    9. DEILD rotating chair

      by , 07-26-2014 at 10:41 AM
      This morning i found myself deilding from a semilucid by visualizing myself in a rotating chair. I managed to deild 3 times and always by rotating my body until i felt i could use a dream body and get out of bed with it.

      I managed to play pulling my hand trough objects, sometimes feeling a mild pain. Didnt succeed with old school fireballs or kamehamehas.

      I managed to WILD after 5 hours of sleep using my body relaxation as an anchor and as soon as body hypnagogia it was easy to get out of bed, jump out of the windom, and then i walked a bit, but a strange pain in my nose, made me think that someone could be wrong in real life, and i woke up on purpose.

    11. Book notes on meditation and lucidity

      by , 12-28-2013 at 04:20 PM
      Cultivating lucidity directly

      [..]Normally we are as caught
      up in and carried away by our mental activities in the daytime
      as we are in the nocturnal mental activity we call dreaming.
      Rarely do we step back and simply observe our minds in action,
      becoming cognizant of the nature of the reality we are experiencing
      in the present moment. It makes sense, then, that if you
      can become lucid in your daytime experience, this will greatly
      facilitate lucidity when you're dreaming. Settling the mind in
      its natural state can also be effective for reentering dreams
      when you awaken at night.[...]

    12. SSILD stubborness

      by , 12-27-2013 at 01:44 PM
      Boring short lucids, again..

      So, i woke up after 4h30 of sound sleep, without recall. Decided to do WILD with SSILD cycles. So, after a long time in bed, watching, hearing and feeling i finally get the free-float sensation and know i can get out of bed with my dream body. First exit, my senses very dormant, my vision poor and creepy. It fades soon, back in the free-float void. Get out ( DEILD ) of bed again. Now, a little bit better. After an hand RC, I jump off dinner room window, and itīs dark out there. i am flying around a tree and looking at my neighbour's windows. I recalled the feeling of being a child and having very similar flying dreams. I am Peter Pan again It fades soon too.
      Can get out bed again. In my dinner room i try to summon a DC but my mum comes, and i punch him ! I am not an agressive guy but i like to punch and kick my DCs. well, jump off window again ( always do when i'm home, so watch out ! )but this time, i try to make the sun rise, and a small speck of light, not the sun, appears and dispels some darkness. I fly over a small wood around my house and find a DC, a neighbour of mine. It fades.
      Now, i canīt DEILD again. I let my self fall asleep, and only nlDs.

    13. Wait, 6 fingers ?

      by , 12-25-2013 at 05:02 PM
      I was talking to a DC about a list of subjects and decided to use my hand to be easier to remember what i was saying. when i notice, i am touching my sixth finger and, then, notice there's a seventh finger. Oh, i am dreaming. I donīt stabilize, just go to a bald head DC and try to write something in his head then returned to talk to the first DC but i lost my lucidity and my recall is poor. I remember when the dream faded, i tried to DEILD, which means i retained some lucidity until the end. But, besides the feeling of becoming lucid, nothing special about this dream.

    14. Vortex trip

      by , 12-24-2013 at 02:43 PM
      After 6h30 of sleep woke up to record my nLDs and after that let myself lay on bed, daydreaming, sometimes falling into micro-dreams, but didnīt fell asleep for 1,5 hour. then, decided to shift to my belly and, knowing i was on the edge of sleep, decided to observe any image without loosing my awareness.

      Very soon, i find myself on a vortex ( happens sometimes ) and i know i am wilding, then another random images, and finally a real 3D dream location. my senses a bit dormant, but didnīt need to stabilize or stimulate them. i find myself in some college corridor, the walls with shiny wood. very nice dream definition, and cool place. I see a female DC on an elevator, i got interested in talking to her, but the dream takes me ahead. now i am opening a door that lead to a classroom, and i enter. I see two female teachers and also female students ( yes, only female DCs in this dream ). They look at me with strange eyes. I wonder how interesting their facial expressions. then i see a computer on the classroom and decided to test if it would work properly. It seems like the notepad is open and i begin typing some letters. it worked decently: same keys provided the same letters.

      while i was typing the two female teachers ( one was black skinned ) were behind me and i was afraid one of them did something annoying to me, but the black teacher only shouted Ŧ heyŧ and i look to her.

      then i decide to leave the classroom, and take one more chance to look at the students. how nice their facial expressions, how nice the image definition.

      then, perhaps because of the female dream content, and motivated by lust, sadly i tried to find a pretty DC.
      i wonīt go into details, but i woke up too soon. shame


      besides waking up too soon, i really didnīt have an interesting sexual experience so far, because it seems like the anatomy is different.

    15. Jealous guy

      by , 12-21-2013 at 02:18 PM
      Bed time: 2:10h am / Wake up: 12h

      induction: MILD, alarm DEILD, body scan, WBTB

      My first awakening yelded a vivid dream, which i used to MILD, but i will jump straight to my lucid.

      Well, my lucidity was steadily increasing along the dream. First, i find myself in some college, in the reprographic department, trying to get some notes, but then when i approached them, i lost my interest.

      Then, i find myself leaving the college and some high school friend, which i havenīt seen for 7 years, and he asks me what am i doing here. Oh, i just tell him a lie, i told him i went to see my girlfriend. But the truth is that i didnīt know what i was doing there. i stay with him, and soon more high school friends join us, and i understand why. there will be a fight show. ok makes sense. but the problem is that there is an old friend of mine that get jealous ( because of his girlfriend ). he tries to force me out, but i tell him i never had anything with her, just flirt. he kept on forcing me. i told him it was my right, and he would have to face the consequences. the truth is that he starts chasing me and i began flying, but could not find an open window or a big one for my dream body. thatīs when i turn lucid and, not because i wanted to escape, i break a window and finally open space ! but lost lucidity in seconds.
