      xChris12 Workbook

      Hello, my name is Chris. I am 15 years old. I have been trying to begin to practice attempting to achieve lucidity. I tried a couple of months ago quit and began trying again. I have also begun to meditate and I am trying to implement it into my daily life. The reason I am trying to practice lucidity in my dreams again is well, after waking up in the morning to meditate, I unintentionally became lucid. I tried WBTB again the next couple nights and have been unsuccessful. The reason I quit in the first place was my lack of results after trying so hard. I don't think I'll ever be able to WILD as I am unable to even get near SP. I have become lucid to my knowledge only three times. My first time was when I was young, I had this recurring nightmare which I eventually became lucid in. I remember only becoming lucid to purposely ending the dream...... The second time was when I had a really strange dream which I remember clearly, but it was in my first dream journal which I know where it is I am just unable to get it. In fact it's only about 3 feet away from me but stuck behind a drawer which I can't move. I then woke up retraced the steps of my dream. I don't know why but I decided to only retrace the dream halfway. I go to sleep and next thing I know I am dreaming. My third lucid dream is inside my dream journal entry. I also read about the DWA and I don't know if this dream is connected with 4th entry or because of reading about the DWA.

      Hi and welcome to DILD workshop. We can help you here to have Dream Induced Lucid Dreams. Which means, you go to sleep normally and once you have a regular dream, inside it you realize you dreaming. From there, you can many times take over control of your dream.

      First of all, it may take a while to train our mind for frequent lucid dreams, but it's definitelly doable. But you can't get discouraged. All the techniques will work, only if you excited about lucid dreaming and you believe in yourself.

      1. First step will be for you to get yourself another DJ and start using it. Writing dreams in a DJ will tell your mind, that dreams and remembering them is important to you and it will help you with recall. Dream recall tutorial

      2. Read up on DILD There is more DILD tutorials in DV Wiki, read as much as you can. Also, follow the links to SAT, mantras, RCs at the end of the tutorial.

      Give it a try and post your progress and any questions you may have. Happy dreams

      I attempted to do the WBTB and it didn't work.. I went to sleep at around 12 to 1 and woke up at 4:15 but I do not recall a dream before waking up and the first thing on my mind was dream recall. So then I thought hey maybe I am just about to go into REM sleep so I got up, went to the bathroom and went back to my bed. I read some lucid dreaming stuff on this forum before going back to sleep atleast I think so. I did not even have a dream at all before my alarm woke me up at 7 AM. If I go to sleep too early, I don't become lucid and I have a shit load of dreams, but if I stay up longer for 30 going back to sleep is extremely difficult for me and I do not become lucid. Why is this... My second to last attempt was not a lucid dream but after waking up I had a ton of dreams during the morning hours but they are all very short so I don't bother to jot them down. Also, while reading some things on dream guides, I may think that my dream guide is female. Every time there is a girl in my dream, they are extremely nice towards me and they make me feel kind of happy, loved, etc. I only remember an encounter with this nice, loving DC 3 times. My first time was when I was young and I remember sitting on her lap. I don't know why but I kept trying to kiss her. My second time is in my other dream journal, and my last encounter is in my most recent dream journal entry, it's the nice teacher who gave me back my blunt. The first time I don't remember a name, the second time her name was Luciana, a girl from my school, and the last encounter she was a teacher in my school. Maybe I am wrong but maybe I am not.

      Okay so I just had another idea about my hopefully dream guide. In my second encounter, I remember this lady that I saw who was very attractive but I can't remember what she looked like. In my first dream, she was raped but after my dream ended I decided to retrace my steps to the point where I saw the attractive lady. I remember falling asleep and being at the same spot I was from where I stopped and I became lucid. Looking at my hands I knew I was dreaming but I was unable to convince myself in a way.. So we walked into the house into a room and I had the intent of sex on my mind lol. Anyways, we kind of just sat there I think she was waiting for me to say something and now that I am thinking of my dream again I think I remember asking how much time is left and she replied 5 minutes. My dream ended a bit after that so yeah..

      First thing we need to work on is your recall.
      You need to write down dreams, even if they are very short. You should also be genuinly thankfull for them. When you write them down, it tells your mind, that having dreams and remembering them is important to you and will help you with that. If you don't write a dream because it was a short one, your mind thinks it's all the same to you, having or not having dreams. After you write down a short dream, also write this "This is a short one, but I like it. Next one will be longer. I have good memory and my recall is getting better every day". You would be surprised, but our minds listen to us.

      It's normal to have longer or better dreams towards the morning. Longer you sleep, longer your REM stage is. You have to experiment about how long you stay up for WBTB, it can be different every time.

      Could you please describe how exactly you practice during day to become lucid? Happy dreams

      During the day, I do some reality checks but that is basically it.. I've noticed since I haven't been writing down my set of small dreams in the morning they are becoming more and more blurry. When I wake up from the dream I am not sure of what happened because of the fact they are so blurry. I'll try and write down every single dream I can recall and see what happens.

      So about 15 minutes ago I felt really sleep so I decided that I was going to sleep. I was lying on my right side for a bit and my eye lids felt heavy. Just lying there and I thought to myself I don't care anymore and then moved to lay on my back. But I was in an uncomfortable position with my left hand against my knee and my knee was out to my side. Next thing I know I felt it come from my friend I feel these extreme vibrations. It started to move down to my chest but I couldn't remain calm and they stopped. I forgot about my left hand on my knee and tried again. It began once more again and what I unintentionally visualized was an elevator. The vibrations stopped and I was not in a dream. Damn. Was this sleep paralysis? Also, when I thought I don't care anymore I was lost in my train of thoughts and it had to do something with my trying to sleep.

      I stayed up until 5:30 last night. I was sleepy and went to sleep, no dreams. I woke up at 10:30 and stayed up until 1 when I decided to go to sleep. I didn't realize it but I had a false awakening and I feel stupid I didn't notice. I did not notice a SP and after 5-10 minutes of laying there I was inside my dream. My brother came home and he had 3 cannabis lollypops. It was extrememly vivid I couldn't tell anything was out of the ordinary. I know it was a long dream but I can't remember much so I know that I need to work on my dream recall. I remember because I was trying to go to sleep I went back to lay down and felt extrememly drowsy. I was like I don't want to waste my high and decided to get back up. I can't remember much from that. I am so mad I didn't notice I was dreaming lol. Atleast it was extremely vivid that i couldn't tell the difference between life and my dream.

      I think you should practice some more daytime awereness and RCs, so they start tranfering into your dreams.

      Try this basic awareness + RC technique:

      During day, ask yourself a question 'wow, am I dreaming?' that jolts your attention and makes you stop doing whatever you doing. For a moment, entertain the idea, that you are sure this is a dream or false awakening and feel the excitement in the pit of your stomach. Just pretend, that you have had a lucid dream that was indistinguishable from waking reality, so any waking moment is possible to actually be a dream and you don't know for sure untill you RC.

      Then, look at your hands. Are the any different? Count your fingers. Do you have the right amont? If you sure you are awake, say mantra "Next time I'm dreaming, I look at my hands and realize I'm dreaming". Repeat a few times, while looking at your hands. I believe, that this startling moment, when you first ask yourself, is very important, as this is what will start happening in your reg. dreams and get you lucid.

      It helps to RC everytime you wake up. Hopefully it will help you catch those pesky FAs. Keep us posted, happy dreams

      Hm, from your first post maybe you are trying a bit too hard? Remember to always approach it with a relaxed mind, you don't want to be stressed because that isn't good for lucidity.
      Apart from that, reading your other posts it seems like you have great incubation abilities. Ever notice that you dream of stuff that you just watched/read about/talk about right before going to sleep?
      Creating a new persistent realm, claiming it and breaking the last seal I made back in the beggining of my journey are my goals right now

      I read the free-falling WILD technique and attempted it. I didn't witness the sleep paralysis which I never do, I slip right into my dream. I just lied down waiting for illogical thoughts. I think I got one and I sped it up by creating one. I thought of a horse riding a donkey. I toss and turned for about 15 more minutes when next thing I know I am lying down in a different room but I knew was still in my aunt's house which I am vising for vacation. I went into the dream lucid! I remember the first thing I did was ask for my dream guide. A man came up to me but I don't remember having a conversation with him. I felt no connection to him at all. I left him and ended up inside my house in my room. I remember jumping out my window and wanting to fly. I started going towards the ground with no fear, bounced a couple feet above my house on my belly and fell back down. Flying is hard in lucid dreams! I am so surprised the Free-Falling WILD technique worked though. I did not experience Sleep Paralysis so I don't know if it was just a coincidence or to thank the method..

      This is my fourth LD that I can recall and I am so happy that I was able to be in it for a good amount of time. My other LD's were short. The thing that surprised me was that this was my first night attempting it as well.

      I have noticed though if I focus on something for the day before, I have dreams related to that topic. Just like when I became lucid, I woke up in the current house I was but in a different room.

      Well as I tell everyone, you don't really need to go through the whole SP thingy for the WILD to work, so maybe it did work.
      Congratulations on the lucid and remembering your tasks!

      I have noticed though if I focus on something for the day before, I have dreams related to that topic. Just like when I became lucid, I woke up in the current house I was but in a different room.
      Interesting, you should give incubation a try, it might give you unexpected results!

      So this morning, I had atleast 5 dreams. I didn't bother writing them down as I was too tired. I was tired yesterday from playing tennis and went to sleep a little earlier than I usually do, I can't remember a time though. I went to sleep and didn't have a dream at all my brother's alarm woke me up at around 5:50 to 6 AM. I went back to sleep and my alarm woke me up at 7. I went back to sleep again and while I was going back to sleep, I could see very vivid images in my mind. I would be day dreaming and I could see faces of people but I don't remember what I was thinking about at the time. I notice when I go to sleep my mind wanders off and shortly after I fall asleep. If I try to keep my mind clear instead of just going along with all the day dreaming going on it is much harder for me to sleep. I have to try to clear my mind completely and wait there for a little bit. Then I start day dreaming without even realizing it again but if I do it stops and I either forget what it was about or I can't start again but sometimes I can make it happen again. It's like a story going on inside my head. After waking up and seeing the vivid imagery, I noticed that I was able to influence the imagery. I was wondering if I could use this daydreaming when I attempt to go to sleep to my advantage, something like passive awareness or something. Also, I noticed that while I was trying to go to sleep this morning I felt normal, then all of a sudden I felt a floaty, vibrational feeling this would stop as fast as it started but it isn't intense as SP. For SP my 2nd time experiencing it, I felt extreme vibrations starting from my head moving down, but unfortunately I was not able to fall asleep. I feel completely relaxed at this point, and I noticed that my body wanted to roll over. I don't know if this was a roll over signal or something else but I did anyways. After rolling over from laying on my left side to my right I would get the quick jolt of "energy" I'll call it.This would happen and the imagery would happen soon after that so I decided to see if I could influence what happened in the imagery and I was able to create a moving object smashing the person I saw. Shortly after the jolt of energy I don't want to move at all and it is difficult for me to get up and I feel really cranky if someone wakes me up while I am like this. I fall asleep shortly after this happens. What is happening.

      Also, Hukif how do I attempt incubation?

      So at 3:45 PM I was kind of groggy and decided to go to sleep. I slept for about 1 hour and 45 minutes. I tried to get the jolt of energy from before and succeeded. The imagery started to come and I also heard voices talking to me. I don't know how to explain this but I felt as if I was neither awake nor asleep but right in between these two. The weird thing is I think my hearing shut off because I would be wrapped in my daydreaming and when I come to my senses, I feel as if my hearing just turned on and I am unable to get back into the state of mind I was in before. Then I lay there for some more time and it happens again, I feel a weird jolt and it's becoming easier to notice now and I get caught up in the imagery but I had no intention of trying to influence it. Also, while I was trying to go to sleep a couple of days before I caught a quick glimpse of I don't know what. I perceived it as some sort of spirit and it glowed of the brightest purple/violet. The way I felt in front of this being is unexplainable, all I can say was it was intense. It felt like there was energy flowing throughout my body and I could only feel love coming out of it. I nearly cried after seeing whatever I just experienced..

      It looks similar to this picture with the radiant violet glow of this picture

      That sounds so cool. I love the experiences I get in the 'between' state, but I have never experienced what you describe, although I have heard of it. Awesome. Sounds like you are on the right track. Happy dreams

      I just posted a decently long entry and it decides not to work. I'm just going to sum up what I said. I have more false awakenings now since I wrote it down on a piece of paper that I wanted them. I think they never happened because of a nightmare where i had multiple false awakenings and just wanted to sleep. My first false awakening I don't remember. My second I was so mad I started punching shit and never tried a reality check. Fail. I am noticing a pattern with my day dreaming. I get to the imagery, shortly after there is a pause where I am neither awake nor asleep, I am unaware of my body and surroundings and my mind is completely clear all I can hear are voices in my day dream. I think that my senses begin to shut down here. Soon after I am in a dream. This post is really short compared to my failed one but I don't feel like trying to re-write all that so yeah.

      Sorry, slow response on incubation.
      What you did to get FAs is one way, writting down what you want to happen, like predicting your future dream and making yourself lucid within the story.
      Another way is to watch videos or images of what you want to dream about and imagine yourself lucid while watching that, so that it will also induce lucidity.
      Creating a new persistent realm, claiming it and breaking the last seal I made back in the beggining of my journey are my goals right now

      I tried incubation and I thought of myself being at a beach but I didn't put much effort in. I had a dream of where I hugged my ex, it's hard to explain how I felt during the hug but nothing even came close to being related to a beach. Tonight I'll try visualizing the beach more and try to feel that I am there..

      It's easier to incubate a dream when you visualizing something that you are very familiar with. You know how the place feels, smells... Like the house you grew up in, or other place you spent tons of time. You can probably change the dreamscene later, once you are in LD. Happy dreams

      I'll make sure to try that and time some vitamin b6 pills and see what happens!

      I've been having a dry spell of dream less nights but that just changed this morning. I had a semi nightmare and a dream where I was in a talent show. Before going back to sleep I attempted SSILD but my brother was moving around on the bed and I ended up not having a lucid dream. They were quite vivid though. I posted them in my dream journal.

      Yeah, it's common to have dream recall fluctuations. Just keep up with your DJ so your recall doesn't slip completely. I know it's hard, but try not to get bothered by sounds or other things. If you'd like, here is a collection of methods you can do for DILDs. And here is a great explanation of awareness technique. It's for WILDs, but it works for DILDs the same way. Hope this helps

      So I had two more dreams last night, I went to sleep at around 11 and woke up at 3:30 because of my dream. I was too sleepy and went back to sleep had another decently long dream and near the end I was once again with my brother and someone else. He started to pin my brother down and I tried saving him and we were upon kind of a balcony and I tried pinning him down and said "If you don't get off my brother I will f****** kill you". He jumps right up grabs and and jumps off the building and positions my body under him. Right before I hit the ground I wake up. This is the second time I've awaken from a semi nightmare.. I think I haven't had a nightmare in so long is because when I was a child I was have recurring nightmares and I hated them so much. Sometimes, it was abandonment, and sometimes it was a death of a family member or just a plain old scary monster. I think because I disliked them so much as a child my mind protects me by stopping me from witnessing these nightmares i don't know. When I told myself that I wanted to have nightmares if it was necessary then let it happen which was a couple of days ago I've had my second semi nightmare. The dream starts off normal and ends up with me getting hurt.. I also think that my false awakenings stopped because I was awoken in my dream and because I told myself I wanted to have more false awakenings and I didn't know it was a dream because it was so similar to the real world. I got so mad and started punching everything around me and when I punched my window in my sun room I saw my neighbor looking at me. So I am going to tell myself I want to get more false awakenings and see what happens.
