      When you planning to have lucid dream, if you sleep on sofa, it tells your mind, that you not just going to have a normal, pass-out sleep. That you doing something else.

      Plus, on my sofa I can prop my head on bunch of pillows and I'm in a half seated position on my back. That's another way of telling my mind that we are doing something special.

      That makes sense. Maybe I will try that, or at least prop my head up on a few pillows.

      Just make sure it's comfy enough for you to fall asleep. See, I'm used to sleep on sofa while watching tv, but it may be different for you.

      Still no recent successes with DILDS, but I did actually almost have a WILD. I woke up naturally, felt the vibrations, and entered sleep paralysis, but got a little freaked out and broke the SP.
      Anyways, I'm not sure why I haven't been having any DILDs recently. Do you think I should be having more by now? I know it varies from person to person, but it's been a while since I've had a DILD compared to before when I had a few of them in a relatively short amount of time.

      I really can't tell you how many or when. There really is no schedule for that. If you are practicing awareness+RCs+mantras with emotions, then you are doing everything right. If you have intent and selfconfidence instead of a wish, then you doing it right. Keep practicing for DILD, and if you wish to practice other methods as well, go for it. (I have read your post in WIILD) Read Sageouse's tutorial here in Academy, read DEILD by dutchraptor. That way you will be ready, when you find yourself in WILD or DEILD situation.

      I went without DILD since 1/27, and day before yesterday I had a DILD with 6-7 FAs. I was able to catch them because of RCs and got lucid in all of them. Don't give up, keep practicing

      Yeah, when I got into SP last night, that just kind of happened on its own. And that is why I made that post in WILD subforum; so that I know what to do next time. I want to stick with DILD until I have more DILDs under my belt. I just feel like I should be having more.

      Now that I think about it though, maybe I need to work on keeping up with awareness.

      I have never read sageous's WILD tutorial because it is so long, but I always see people recommending to read it because it is so good. So I have been a little bit bored recently, so I decided to check it out just for the heck of it. I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I can tell that it is very good, and I think it is a very interesting read. Anyways, I was reading one of the posts (the first session, I believe), and he talks about awareness. More specifically, self awareness. I have heard about self awareness before, but always forget to look into it. Sageous also gives some good and convincing reasons why he thinks it is better than ADA for WILDing. I feel like it would be better for WILDs too. But what about for DILDs? Would self awareness work for DILDs as well as ADA? I was considering giving it a try for a while.

      Absolutely. Any type of daytime awareness helps with all lucid dreams, DILDs included. This part of his tutorial is about self-awareness.

      It helps you to be more aware in your dreams in general, maybe help to get lucid more often, have more detailed and vivid regular dreams. It definitelly is a good thing. And sivason's dream yoga in DVA is all about awareness.

      Ok cool, maybe I will try self awareness for a while. I will look at the dream yoga section too, as I have always seen it but never took the time to check it out.

      Ahh, It's good to be back haha. Obviously, I haven't been on DV for a while now, or even trying to lucid dream. After not getting results, I've lost interest, and honestly, I've been too lazy to get back into it . Well I've had some awesome dreams lately, which got me thinking about LDing again, so I am now going to try to get back into my old habits of awareness, mantras, etc., plus get my motivation up. So I will hopefully be back here on DV regularly again, and posting updates.

      Welcome back! Best thing to motivate you can be reading and posting on DV. Make a plan what you want to do in your LD, draw a picture of it in your DJ, daydream about it, practice, how you would do it.

      Write in your DJ, do mantras, awareness question, RCs and get some LDs! Good luck
