    1. Chunks...

      by , 02-09-2019 at 08:50 AM
      I was searching for some medical equipment in a doctor's pc, idk what.

      The dream was fragmented, had bad, short sleep last night but vividness was better. I am convinced it's because of "nofap" as I head from too many sources that sexual energy is a must for awareness.
    2. just notes

      Every night going to sleep to make it easier to fall asleep I listen to different audiobooks, nonfiction stuff mostly. Tonight it was Power of your subconscious mind, and the guy was telling how important it is to make autosuggestions and visualisations then I remembered that I almost never done that for lucid dreaming, because I never really believed in any of it, even the existence of subconscious mind seems like some tale for me even though intellectually I know it;s there and exists and stuff....

      So maybe that's the reason why in 8 years I only had 30 lucid dreams, I am going to give it a try, I don't believe in it, but I am going to try anyway, that's why it's done after all, to build faith, right?)

    3. Sleeping on back

      by , 10-20-2018 at 07:51 PM
      I guess trying even MILD's is a too high goal that I set for myself. Currently I have HUGE trouble just falling asleep on my back. And if not on my back I don't have usually any dream recall. So, first of all I should concentrate on two things:
      1. Falling asleep easily while on my back
      2. Remembering and recording as much detail from my dreams as it's possible
      3. Improving self-awareness by doing RC and the like

      Maybe I should just try to look at my hands in dreams, I have had two LD's with that technique even without much practice....

      P.S. If you can give me an advice on how to quicken the process, please share, I am eager to learn!

    4. Trying too hard?

      by , 10-20-2018 at 05:35 PM
      Yesterday I went to sleep at 8PM and slept till 7AM, during the sleep I woke up a lot of times and tried WILD huge amounts of times, never worked out. I even don't remember any dream except for a few fragments.
      I think I should concentrate on something other than WILD, it's too damn hard. I can lie for 3 hours without moving a muscle but I never even have SP! Yes a few years ago I did WILD a few times, but now it got harder for me, mostly because of my great expectations, I get too excited about possibility of lucidity and what I will do once there.

      I was looking for an easier technique and remembered MILD, I'll focus on it, will try to do it for 40 days as some people successfully did on this site. I'll make daily reports on my progress.

    5. My mind is too cloudy, always

      by , 10-19-2018 at 05:38 AM
      I am always dreaming, even in the waking time I am dreaming, daydreaming, dreaming at nights and dreaming in dreams. My mind is too far away from being lucid for most of the time, I have to do something about it.

      I remember that the best recall and few lucid dreams were products of my sleeping on my back (usually I sleep on side), so I will try to make a habit of sleeping on back, last night I did it, my sleep monitoring app even said that as it didn't notice ANY movements it can't analyze my sleep!

      Starting from today, I will try to go to bed before 21:00, wake up after 4.5 hours of sleep, analyze the dreams or read this forum for 20 minutes and try WILD. I hope it will help...

      Summary for to-do:

      Sleep on the back
      Stay for 20 minutes awake after 4.5 hours of sleep and try WILD
      Record everything

    6. Falling asleep

      by , 10-18-2018 at 10:27 PM
      I am experiencing problems with falling asleep on my back. I can relax and lie for 2 hours without moving a finger but I never reach full SP and even just falling asleep is a huge trouble. Also for years I have been a xxx addict, so whenever I feel on the edge of sleep I start fantasizing about the sex stuff and it makes concentration almost impossible. Although one of the main reasons of my starting this practice is having dream sex, yet I realize there is no way to do that without first mastering some basic skills like easy dream induction and stabilization. I will try not to think about anything sexual until I reach 50 on my lucid dreams counter...

      Tonight I'll try to go WILD and fly.
