      Aeolar's Workbook

      'Ello, Aeolar here. I'm 17 years old, of the manly gender, and I've been skipping about lucid dreaming for about two years now, possibly three. I've just come back to it after a 2 month laziness spell, and I've developed some good habits. Mainly I've learned that experience stays with you! 8)

      I'm here today because I would like some tips with DILDs, awareness and all that jazz, and I would also like to share my progress with you! :3

      Let's get started then, shall we?

      6/28, or Day 1:
      Goals: Fly [x] Summon a master of LDing [] Open a door to a completely different place []

      It's quite a jumble of dream stories, but I end up having to wait for my grandpa to get up at 4 AM so that we can go fly kites. I get out of my room and walk down the hall to see my cousin Amanda. Except her face isn't that clear. Is that really her? I tell her that we're flying kites and we need to go, and that she needs to wake grandpa up. I walk outside, thinking it strange, somewhat sinister that Amanda was in my house at 4 AM. I do an RC and I can't really see my hands, so I fly up into the air to see Amanda running out the door looking for me! She was looking all around and seemed furious that I got away. I felt relieved that she couldn't get me up here, and I floated back into my bed.


      Synopsis: My first attempt at lucid dreaming, and I did it! I went to bed at 10:30, woke up naturally at about 3:30, then performed a WBTB for 45 minutes.

      Welcome to the workshop, Aeolar!

      Sure thing, we can help you finetune your technique That's some good effort, congratulations! Just curious, was there a strong feeling of happiness and excitement the moment you realized you dreaming or did you tell yourself something like "wow, this is a dream? If not, it could have been a dream in which your practice and awareness had manifested. I'm asking, just because you don't mention that specifically. In either case, great job.

      I'm gonna list some links here for yu to check out. I know you are not a noob on this site and you probably already read them.
      Collection of all things you need to do for DILDs
      Awareness training
      Mantras
      Sporadic daytime awareness
      All day awareness

      Please post your progress and any questions. Happy dreams

      Well if I recall correctly, I'd say that it was mainly relief that I was getting out of the situation. I *knew* it was a dream the moment I saw her, and the rest of my brain wasn't functioning, all I could think of was "Get out get out get out!"

      That's why I didn't try to prolong the dream. Kind of like when little kids say "I'm dreaming, I'm going to wake up now"

      Goals: Go through a door to a city park [x] Talk to a DC [x] Meet a Master of Lucid Dreaming []

      I'm walking around in school for a while, when I notice something isn't quite right. I look around, and I look at my hands, and everything is very foggy and groggy. My left hand only has three fingers! But oh no! I'm fighting to keep in the dream, and I start stabilizing as fast as possible, turning around slowly and looking at various things. I notice that there is a lot of DC's around me, and a lot of writing on the walls. Some of it is drawings or posters or banners, but there is a lot of just plain writing on plain white walls. I see a set of double doors in front of me down the white hall, they're blue. I prepare myself, and visualize where I want to go: A city park. Fight for stability again. I feel half awake half asleep. Stay very still and just look around. Alright, ready to move on, I walk through the double doors.... I'm still in this school? Darn.

      The hallway turns to the left and I see in front of me a large group of DC's going about their normal schoolish business. The walls and tiles and ceilings of this hallway are still white, but I glance to my left and see a little piece of writing on the wall: 3 words arranged in three lines from top to bottom. Smile Try Sliding
      I took this to mean try sliding through the door to a different place, but it could have meant something else. Further along the wall is a shabby unused door, still blue, but sort of neglected. I walk up to it and visualize the city park. I walk through and end up in a maintenance shaft of an underground subway!

      "Hmmm," I think to myself, "Cities have subways.. If I just find a way out of here I'll find my way to a park!" I jump down the shaft, and start walking, looking for a way out. It looks just as a normal subway station would, all concrete with various signs and shops. I start to wander and start thinking about why I chose subways instead of where I wanted to go. I start seeing subway restaurants popping up. I take that as a queue that I should leave soon. I turn a corner and find some stairs, and at the top of that large staircase is another set of double doors. This time though they are greyish-white and have glass panes. Through the glass I see tall buildings in the distance. I go through with high hopes and almost burst with enthusiasm when I see it. A city park! It worked! Okay, what next?

      The park is set with a very modern style. Long rectangular sections of bright green grass intersected by small square strips of concrete, the corners of which have benches or lamp posts. There's a fountain far off to my left. It's replete with DC's, and I can't wait to seize the opportunity. Let's have a conversation with one! I see an elderly couple and approach them. I'm about to say hello, when I see my high school friend Becca in the distance, with red roses in her hair, and wearing all black. She's walking with a tall boy, and I run over calling her name "Becca! Becca!" When I catch up the boy tells me that's not her name, it's "Jayme(maybe?)" Anyways, I know it's Becca, and we start talking about my recent dreams. I tell her all about this girl I used to have a crush on and all this drama she had with her friends. It's so easy to talk to her, because she completely understands!! Who would have known that I know everything about myself?

      I get immersed in the conversation and the dream fades out, but I don't move. Soon the dream shows me this schedule/time chart that seems to be of that dream. It scrolls down to the bottom of the list and focuses on a line. "9 PM - a Competition" Now I am standing with a huge group of people and there is a lady with a megaphone announcing groups. I quickly learn that this is a game based around dreamers and is organized based on their skill levels. I see myself stand up exuberantly, jumping with joy that I was assigned the "Adept" group of dream skill. The whole group gets put in place and we start walking down the road. Behind us are policemen holding flashing yellow lights, and talking into hidden microphones like secret service agents. o.O

      If there is something scary in your lucid, you have couple of options, besides ending the dream.

      1. You can teleport someplace else.
      2. You can use your powers to change the scary stuff into something else.
      3. Send it your love and understanding and watch it to change into something cute and non-threatening.

      Hey there, got back from 10 days in Wisconsin to escape the heat! O.O
      But in-between the relaxing I got a few lucids in for you :3

      7/3

      I'm in Illinois at Grandma's. I become lucid and walk up the hill. I think of what I want to do, and stand there and take in my surroundings. I take a minute to stabilize the dream, and notice a ton of DC's all around me. I see a naked women and think to myself "why not?" She's very defensive when I touch her so I leave her alone to bask in the sun, nakedly, and go about my business. I walk forward out and near the train tracks. There, on the other side, sitting under the shade of a tree, is a woman. She has long flowing black hair and is wearing a cutoff white t-shirt and blue jeans. She gives off the impression of a Spanish girl. Her arms are sleeved with tattoos, and I touch her left arm and sit down next to her.

      "Are you dreaming right now?" I ask her politely.
      "No, but I had a dream last week," She replies, much to my surprise.
      "What was it about?"
      At this point she says a phrase in French or Spanish, and ends with "An older life of mine."
      "Ah, a dream about your previous life?" I clarify.
      "Yes, yes. I was in Spain during Queen Isabella's reign, and I was struggling."

      At this point, she gets up and walks to a nearby wooden chair in front of a large wooden banquet table. I stand on the other side and ask,
      "Were you a princess?"
      She nods her head, "Yes, I was. Though there was no prince because there were.. Complications"

      ~~~
      It's interesting because I did some research and found this article which seemed quite similar to what this DC described to me!
      Isabella; I.E My DC?

      7/4

      I'm looking at my hands. I become lucid. I stare at my hands until they begin to fade, then I look at the surroundings. I look around until these begin to fade, then I look back at my hands.

      7/9
      I'm at home playing video games downstairs while Dad is working on the front door. I think it's too soon before I go home and become lucid. I look at my hands and I do have 10 fingers... I push my finger through my hand but it isn't working... I know it's a dream though!! I pinch my nose closed and find I can breathe!!
      I walk out the front door pondering what to do, and meanwhile I take in all my surroundings. I notice how green and real the grass is, and see a nearby patch of dirt. I grab a handful of dirt and shove it in my mouth, wondering if it will really taste like dirt. WORST. IDEA. EVER. I spit it out instantly but it gives me major cotton mouth and I can't get all of it out. I spend the rest of the dream trying to summon a toothbrush to clean my mouth out with.

      I'm with three other boys, we're all outside looking for this bird right outside a huge forest. We're running around in the grasslands searching hard for this bird. One of the boys sees it and shouts to us to help him grab it. We chase it in the grass for a while and we catch it finally. It looks like a pheasant except it looks like it's been cooked in the oven and it's skin is starting to peel off. The three boys want to eat it right there because it will give you "special powers " One boy can't wait and throws his face into the live bird and starts ripping it apart with his teeth. Disgusting.

      As he is devouring it, I look around to see this yellow goop seeping out of the earth and worming towards us from all directions. The sky begins to turn black and I get rather frightened. Lightning begins to strike around us as thunder rumbles the earth, and we hear a boy next to us yell as he gets taken away by the goop monster. We sprint back to our home and lock the doors. Inside is our family: 3 girls and 2 older men. We frantically tell them to shut and bolt all the doors and windows in the house, before the goop gets us. They don't listen and very soon after this goop breaks through the windows in the shape of hands and attacks the family. Once it touches a person they turn yellow and try to eat us! I'm terrified and run out the front door, hoping to run to town. Outside it's completely black, a void, and I think that the town would be a much worse place if there were infected. I turn around and the whole group of people is coming towards me. I panic and the dream fades.

      As I'm lying in darkness, I become lucid, and think to myself that I could have handled that a whole lot better than I did. I hear a voice telling me to "face your fears", so I re-visualize the dream and enter right where I left off. They're about to attack me when I say, "I'm sorry! We didn't know what we were doing! I'm sorry!!"
      Everything stops.
      My infected family forgives me, and immediately changes. I hardly believe it, but I have to. I turn to see my normal family next to me, and the infected family in front of my. I ask the infected's what they're going to do now, and they reply that they are going to live upstairs now. I feel satisfied and ask one of the infected girls how she feels. She kisses me and thanks me.

      7/14

      I'm in school taking final exams and I see Aldo, my old school friend. I get all excited when I see him. We hug and I stay in his class for a while before I get kicked out by the teacher. I try to go to my regular class to take my exam, but I see Aldo again. Dreamskip. I'm walking down this forest trail with my cousin James and I notice two naked women lying up ahead in the path. One of them runs when she sees us and the other stares at us. The dream begins to fade as we walk closer and I become lucid, trying to stabilize the dream. I turn really fast trying to look at everything, but I can start to feel my body lying in bed, and lie very very still. James yells something which helps keep me in the dream. It fades and soon I see this spinning Super Mario sign like the one in SM64. I reappear in a room with James and the two girls but also with my little cousin Jacob. I walk outside and stabilize, and think how cool it would be to ride in a limo with a hot tub with two girls!

      Sure enough a black limo does pull up, and it... Does have a hot tub. More like a hot foot bath, for one person. It's so disappointing, but I say to myself beggars can't be choosers and get in anyways. But just to put salt on fresh wounds I get kicked out by one of the girl DC's who tells me I'm not good enough for it!! xD

      Those are some insightfull dreams.
      I like the first one - possible previous life girl?

      And the second - often you accomplish more with love than by force. That's also what Robert Waggoner in his "Lucid dreaming - Gateway to the inner self" recommends. Happy dreams

      I am in "The Deadliest Catch" TV series, and I am sitting in this diner section of the barge. I'm eating a crust of bread by myself when I wonder where the rest of my meal went, I certainly don't remember eating it. I think about it for a good minute, nibbling on the crust and looking around the room at the other people. I do a hand RC to find that the pinky & ring finger on my left hand have fused together! I get on a boat(I think) that takes me to the nearby beachhead, and I get off and walk up into the sand. There I look at the backs of my hands and marvel at the little hairs, freckles, and pores that I can see. I bend over and pick up a handful of sand and inspect each of the tiny little grains and pebbles of sand. I turn around to look at my surroundings and am shocked when I see the barge and the boat still behind me! I had thought they would have left by now, but I guess I underestimated the dream.

      I turn back towards the beach and ponder what I should do. The beach is eerily quiet, so I should aloud to the dream sky, "I want to summon a DC to me!"

      I turn to my left to see a little brownish boy wearing a green shirt running towards me in the sand, and turn to my left to see two girl bicyclists coming towards me. I turn back and forth, looking at each and deciding which one I want to talk to. I decide to talk to the bicyclists, and by now can get a good look at them. The one in front is tall and wearing all black, with a black bob cut to match. The other is smaller, has long blonde wavy hair, and is wearing a long white shirt. The tall cyclist reaches me first and gets off her bike.
      "Hi! My name is Jason, and I've got a job for you!"

      .... Jason? WTF?

      I am so confused that I loose focus and lucidity.
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      I am struggling to keep the dream fluid and get lucidity. I get patchy images of standing in a band room with a lot of other kids. Now I am standing on a styrofoam lunch tray and flying round in circles, conducting the band. I dismiss the class, but a few students linger and I decide to follow them. They walk down a staircase and into a dark hallway. I wait after going down the stairs and attempt to "engage all my senses" I see, hear, feel, and touch everything around me, but I don't taste anything. I lick a nearby fire hydrant handle, a doorknob, and a wall that has puzzle pieces on it. It tastes soapy, dirty, and sweet, respectively.
      I lost the group of people but keep walking down the hallway, giving a hearty "Hello!" to whichever DC crosses my path. On of the DC's I greet tells me that she'll "Clear the deception" for me so that I can find them again. Now I can either turn left or right, and I choose to turn right down a hallway and through a door. I am now outside in a small courtyard, and decide to get a better look at the whole place, so I levitate up to the roof and see the group I was following, standing together by a fountain. I walk over to them but get distracted and find myself taking family portrait pictures.
