    1. Been a minute

      by , 07-14-2021 at 03:56 PM
      Did WBTB. Meditated for a little bit. This time as I was falling asleep I was imagining the sensation of my body in motion. I was imagining I was gliding in the air 2 feet above the ground. The sensation became more vivid and I was inside of a dream. It was early morning and overcast in the dream. I saw some people playing in the street but I did not approach them. I was trying to summon my dream guide but they never appeared.

      I'm always at an impasse of what to do once I get inside the dream and stabilize it.
    2. A short lucid today

      by , 05-22-2021 at 05:39 PM
      So I had a lucid dream this morning using a combination of WBTB and meditation. The lucid dream was short but I think I have the pathway to Natural Lucid Dreaming down. NLD meaning "without some elaborate Technique of the Month".

      You meditate before bed in the night for 20 minutes.
      You wake up in the middle of the night, record any dreams and meditate again for 20 minutes.
      Go back to sleep.

      That's it.

      To meditate is to become present to the moment. It's okay if you are thinking or chatting with yourself. Meditation is not supposed to be anything profound, spiritual, or deep. The fact that you are aware of the present moment for the majority of the session is good enough. TL;DR meditation is very simple and easy so don't over think it. Just let it happen.
    3. Snooze To Win

      by , 03-10-2021 at 04:55 PM
      So the whole thing of hitting my snooze button every 10 minutes has yielded me some very interesting dreams...none lucid however. I don't use a technique like MILD or whatever, I just go back to sleep between alarms.
    4. Snooze

      by , 03-08-2021 at 04:42 PM
      So I'm giving this thing a try where you just repeatedly hit your snooze button and enjoy the 10 minute dreams in between. They were interesting but I wish my alarm gave me at least 5 more minutes to enjoy them. I could be on to something here.
    5. Back to School

      by , 03-03-2021 at 04:40 PM
      If I hadn't mentioned it in a previous post, I dream about being back in school everyday. Why I'm not using this as a dream sign is beyond me. I did have a lucid dream however.

      Wake up at 6:00 A.M
      Wake up at 8:00 A.M
      Then at 8:30..

      I have an alarm set about every 30 minutes to ensure I don't oversleep and be late for work. But the side effect is that I'll have at least one lucid dream by accident.
    6. The Past Two Days

      by , 02-25-2021 at 06:16 PM
      I've had 2 DILDs the past two days from no particular technique. The only thing I did different was sleep in intervals after the first WBTB.

      Wake @ 5:30 A.M
      Sleep at 6:00 A.M
      Wake at 8:00 A.M, snooze-button and immediately return to sleep
      Wake at 8:30 A.M, snooze-button and immediately return to sleep
      Wake at 9:00 A.M and begin day.

      This isn't the first time this has happened to me, it's just that this sleep pattern isn't particularly convenient when on most days you have work start at 7:00 A.M. The important thing here is to more-than-once interrupt REM sleep. The amount of time between wakings is entirely up to one's comfort and how much time you have to waste.

      So I broke a long dry spell. Lesson here is: stay consistent with your reality checks. Found a dream character I was looking or quite easily too through just sheer expectation.
    8. Thanos

      by , 01-08-2021 at 06:21 PM
      Meditated for 20 minutes during WBTB then set an intention to remember to become lucid. I was walking in my elementary school parking lot when I realized I was dreaming. Some time passed and I was fighting Thanos in my first grade class room. I got some good shots in but to say he was as strong as the Incredible Hulk is an understatement.

      Take away here is that I am going to give Prospective Memory(MILD) some more chances in trying to lucid dream.
    9. Random Lucid

      by , 12-26-2020 at 06:20 PM
      I just did WBTB. The dream started out with me floating 30,000 feet above this city. I imagined that I had a parachute on and I began falling through the rapidly and tumbling. I remembered that imagining yourself falling can be a good way to relax into sleep paralysis but this wasn't what I had in mind. When I was 10 feet away from the ground, my speed slowly abruptly and I gently smacked the ground. I got up and looked around, lucid, and noticed I was in a field not too far away from my elementary school. It was late evening, just a few minutes after sundown and starry.

      My elementary school or school in general has been a recurring dream element for the past year. Should probably start using it as a reality check.
    10. Walk-in

      by , 12-09-2020 at 05:52 PM
      Did WBTB. Lied back in bed and just daydreamed for a bit to catch a bit of sleep before work. There was moment where I was daydreaming myself walking down my neighborhood. That daydream turned into a lucid dream. It was cloudy outside with what I would describe as stationary tornadoes all around. I do have a fear of them like most sane people so I did my best to make it back to my house. My dream tried to do this weird thing where my movement kind of "sticks" when I am trying get somewhere fast. I figured out that if I use my mind to move instead of my dream-muscles I can overcome that.

      After I found shelter, I tried to find my dream guide but for the life of me I can't ever summon them. Sadly, it is one of my most sought after goals. The most I've gotten was some glitching in the distance. I tried to "expect" them to be in the house behind me but the response I got was that the dream guide did not want to be bothered. I don't blame them, it was stormy outside.

      Hmm, I might want to play around with "awareness of time" as a WILD anchor. Perhaps it was never about the many techniques I formulated over the years but the conflicting goals of wanting as much restful sleep as I can get within 30 minutes vs not wanting to over sleep and be late for work. Can't wait to test.

    11. Vertigo

      by , 11-17-2020 at 08:24 PM
      Faded into another dream this morning after a WBTB. It started with the sensation of motion; of moving forward. Ran around inside a building from an assailant. Exited through two doors to find the building was 30,000 feet in the air. I knew I was dreaming; yet, the feeling of being so high in the air and the gravity was enough to dissuade me from jumping out the building and attempting to fly. I knew that if I jumped, the feeling of falling would wake me up immediately. Kind of like Inception, no?
    12. Fickle

      by , 11-16-2020 at 06:37 PM
      Lucid dreaming can be fickle, y'know. All I do is a WBTB, I just focus on going back to sleep because I had work to get up for. I wasn't even trying to lucid dream. Some time passes and I sort of "load" into the dream like a game or turning up the brightness on a monitor. I mean one moment, I am visualizing myself looking into the mirror, I get the feeling that I can focus on it more, then the dream fully loads around me. I am not going to wonder what technique that was.

      BUT the BIG BIG thing here for the first time in a loooong time - maybe ever, I stabilized the dream past 30 seconds. What I did this time around was focus on the details on the back of my hands. The feeling of walking on the ground. The feeling of the clothes on my body. Sounds. Anything. I tried very hardest not to do any thinking inside the dream. I went searching around for a dream guide. I knock on a door. No answer. I knock on a window and I guess a woman who was the mother told me they were at school. So I spend the rest of the dream wandering around my neighborhood for about 10 minutes.

    13. Through the eyes.

      by , 10-31-2020 at 07:43 PM
      I lay on my back and keep still; only moving to stretch, roll, or swallow saliva if I feel discomfort. I am experimenting with how sleep paralysis happens to me. SP never happens but I got some hypnagogia and eventually a DILD later on when I noticed a gigantic hole in my bedroom wall that led to a part of the house that just didn't exist.
    14. Ssild

      by , 10-17-2020 at 05:20 PM
      Had a short lucid dream of me walking out of my home and into my backyard. The entry into the dream felt so much like what people describe Astral Projection is so I used this lucid dream to investigate. My conclusion after just 1 trial (lol) is that no, you do not "leave your body". I walked passed my mother in the dream and even though she was in the kitchen during my nap, she had different clothes on. Most telling of all, when I got to the backyard, some key items were missing that should have been there. The dream ended as soon I tried to exit the backyard and summon a dream character.

      The method I used was SSILD after a WBTB. I still maintain that timing is more important than technique. However, a tip to remember with SSILD is that the goal is to be relaxed and aware; much like meditation. During each of the "cycles" as CosmicIron would put it, be aware of as much as you can. Even if you see/feel/hear nothing, just be aware of that fact. Nothing spectacular is supposed to happen during the technique so-to-speak.

    15. Invisible

      by , 09-03-2020 at 08:19 PM
      So I've probably had a lucid dream everyday since my last journal entry. This almost confirms my hypothesis that technique is not as important as timing. I did some google-sleuthing and there seems to be already research supporting my guess: Source.

      Had a lucid dream using some of my common powers of shapeshifting, going invisible and moving through solid objects; in this instance a tall fence.
