      BStark's workbook

      Hey I'm Miguel, I'm from Madrid, Spain and I've been trying to develop my LD abilities since I discovered LD a year ago. Initially, I was very excited with the possibilities LD offers, but my weakness is that I am not capable of working hard for a long period of time, so after some weeks doing many reality checks a day and attempting WBTBs and WILDs I got increasingly demotivated and gradually stopped doing reality checks; paradoxically, a few days after I had finally stopped doing reality checks I had a DILD (my only lucid dream to the date). I remember being in the woods, chased by wolves, and panic made me jump off some cliffs sorrounding my hometown's river, and I suddenly realised that I was dreaming, but it lasted only a few seconds. Even though it was a fantastic experience, my first year in uni has kept me very busy, and apart from ocassional WILD and WBTB attempts (none of them successful) I haven't kept the necessary reality check and dream journal routine necessary for DILD. I have decided I am going to give DILD another go because you recommend it dearly for beginners. It would also be great if you could teach me how to meditate in order to perform MILDs (and for the benefits meditation has, of course ) because I don't have a clue about meditation. Thanks in advance from your Spanish friend

      Hi everybody! I had a nap this afternoon (fiesta tonight!) so I thought it was a very good time to attempt a WILD... which failed, just like the others. I think I've identified the three things that happen to me when I'm trying to induce a WILD; I either:
      1) can't fall asleep because I can't draw my attention from my body;
      2) lose consciousness and fall asleep normally.
      What I do is start to count my breaths, which eventually leads to 2) if I try to draw my attention from my breaths and start an internal count or to 1) if I don't. Any advices? Thanks!

      Hi Miguel, welcome to the DILD class!

      Yeah, some people report getting a LD right after they stop trying. So it's possible, that you were trying too hard. The lucid dreaming mentality should be more of an intent, than a strong wish. Intent, as in when you know you are a good lucid dreamer and you KNOW that you gonna have LD tonight. If you don't have LD, don't get disappointed. Just know, that that's ok. You are still good.

      Congrats on your first lucid! They do tend to be short, mostly from excitement. Later you will learn to stay calm.

      The most important thing for a DILD is daytime awareness, reality checks and mantras.

      Daytime awareness:
      Basically, as you going through your day, pay attention to your surroundings. Here is a great explanation http://www.dreamviews.com/wild/13181...prep-part.html

      Reality checks:
      It's good practice to do more than one at a time. What is important though, is that when you RCing, you have to believe, that RC will work, because you are in a dream. More about it here http://www.dreamviews.com/dild/13212...ods-dilds.html and here Induction Methods and Techniques You will also find info about mantras here.

      Meditation:
      It's good to meditate, but it's not critical. Here is an aritcle by mastermind about meditation. http://www.dreamviews.com/attaining-...ml#post2021747 If you search his posts, he has a lot of them about state of mind, meditation and motivation. Just click on his username in his post and then click on "find latest posts".

      And DILD is recommended to start with, mostly because it teaches you RCs, mantras, and mostly awareness, which you will need for WILD and DEILD.
      So once you are familiar with DILD, it doesn't hurt to check out a good WILD (sageous) tutorial and give it a try.

      Ok, please read up and ask, if you have any questions. Happy dreams
