      ThatAintMe's Workbook

      Hi my name is chris, and im almost 15. I have had two DILD's, the first of which was two seconds long. The second one, last night, sparked some confidence and i want another. It lasted 10 minutes and was totally epic.

      Welcome to the workshop, Chris!

      Whoa, 10 min, that's awesome. How is your stabilization and control? Here is a tutorial for DILD to see, if there is anything you can add to your practice. Happy dreams

      My stabilization is good. I'm not quite sure because I have nothing to compare it with. The hand rubbing is bs for me but the spinning is very good. When I become lucid, my vision goes off and I start I wake up, but when I spin, my vision comes back, and I can do whatever. My dream recall is very good. The dreams i do remember are in extreme detail.

      My control. I don't really know... I don't recall not being able to control at least a little bit. How ever I did have a hard time with flying.

      Btw i found A good dreamsign, which is my school, but I don't know what to do with it.

      Thanks

      Also this is going to sound incredibly stupid, but the dream is alot more, well, dreamlike than I thought. Thing change alot, and things don't look the same as irl. The result of this is my mind racing, and not being able to concentrate. How do I calm myself down so I can think more clearly?

      And last thing, how long do you think it will be before my next lucid? Ball park?

      I will merge these two posts for you

      1. Well, your stabilization is good, if your dream lasts longer than few seconds or minutes. If spinning works, that's great

      2. You don't always have complete control in LD, so what you got is great.

      3. Dreams signs work like this - you find something, that's recurring in your dream and it's also in your waking life. If it's school, you do an RC IWL everytime, you see the school, or your class room, or cafeteria, or whatever it is that's in your dreams. Then when you see it in a dream, your habit of doing RCs kicks in, you do an RC and get lucid.

      4. I also struggle with my mind racing. I think for me it's because my LDs used to be just seconds long and I got used to rushing to be able to do at least something. But I told myself I need to slow down. I need to do some stabilization - for me it's studying details of my hands, looking and touching my arms and looking at my clothes. Try to look at some details, smell the air, take in the scenery. Hopefully that will calm you down and you will be able to look around and think.

      I don't think things look exactly the same as in WL. Your mind fills up the blanks. But they are detailed and vivid. Once I drove a Dodge Charger. The dashboard was beautiful, detailed, nice dials and stuff. But I have never seen inside of Dodge Charger IWL.

      Oh, and how long. Are you SUPER excited about this? Do you think about lucid dreaming as the best thing that ever happened to you? As a huge secret of the universe just revealed itself to you and you are very lucky and greatful and did I mention SUPER excited? Do you have this incredible happy feeling in pit of your stomach, like the morning after Christmas when you just remember the pile of presents you got the day before? Do you do some RCs while thinking OMG, is this really happening to me? If yes, then you have your lucid tonight.

      If you excited, you believe in yourself, do RCs and other training, appreciate all your dreams and say thank you for them, then you can have LD as soon as your habit of RCing gets transfered in your dreams, which can be in a few days. Those are your only options

      Well i had an odd experience and im really dont know for sure what it was. I was in the middle of the dream and someone threw their iPhone down a hill. After it landed, I jumped down to get it and had a couple feet of clearance...maybe 3 or 4. Since gravity isn't the same, I fell Extremely slowly, About an inch at a time. It was then that I did an RC. This is the weird part. When I dwelled on it later, I didn't think that it was an actual lucid dream. I think I literally dreamt about finding out I was dreaming. And when I woke from the dream after RC(not sure if real or false awakening) my vision didn't shutoff like usual, which has so far always been a warning for me.


      One more thing, the dream faded as I was spinning to stabilize it, another reason for me to question whether real or not.

      If it was legit, then it seems that was my third, with two in a row.

      Last thing. Is waking up from a lucid dream a good time to do a deild?

      Thanks

      1. Since this would have been your third LD, there still should have been a very exhilarating moment when you realized. Was there? Did you tell yourself "this is a dream"? That would be the best indicator of a lucid dream.

      If it was not, dreaming about doing RCs while not getting lucid is quite common. It just means, that your daytime practice is starting to manifest in your dreams. Little more daytime awareness training should help you realize you dreaming.

      2. Spinning - I didn't wanna tell you, that spinning is not the best stabilization method, as it can wake you up as often as transport you to some other dreamscape. Once you read something like that, it's hard to get rid of that notion and it would be waking you up, just because you think it will. But you can still try spinning and knowing, that it will stabilize you and look into some other methods of stabilizing just as a plan B.

      Although, sometimes the dream is over no matter what, maybe because the REM was over.

      3. Absolutely. Waking up from a regular dream or from LD is when you DEILD. Make sure you don't move, don't open your eyes, don't start thinking about anything, except the dream you just came out of. You should enter LD within few seconds. You may experience some hallucinations or weird sensations, but they will be super short, so just let them be. Happy dreams

      Unfortunately, it wasn't a DILD. I have decided that it in fact was just one of this annoying dreams about being lucid.

      My desire to have another one has greatly increased. I have started practicing all day awareness and I am constantly aware of what is happening. My dream recall is greatly improving. I remembered three dreams last night, two in great detail, and one not so detailed. I think the poor one may have been the first one of the night so it was pretty short. My intention is strong and I think it can only be a few days or less before another.

      That's the only thing that matters. I know you will have one very soon. Happy dreams
