      DreamscapeGoat's Workbook

      Howdy, Dreamviews Academy!

      As I said in my introduction, I'm a 17-year-old who wishes to go down the path of lucid dreaming. I find it so very fascinating, how the mind can craft such brilliant worlds while we rest.

      I've gone down the path by starting a dream journal and practicing RCs daily(Whenever I get out of bed, I do the nose plug RC and a "If I was dreaming..." RC).

      I have tried a WBTB, and it gave me 2 vivid dreams right after. Not lucid, but it is a start.

      Is there anything else I should practice in conjunction with all of this to help?

      Have you attempted a WILD before?

      For help I'd try adding mantras, as this has helped me with better recall. Also when you did the WBTB how long did you sleep before waking up? I haven't been able to find a good time schedule to it yet.

      I actually have tried WILD a couple times now - no success, but I got close this afternoon (Felt the 'waves' people talk about, but couldn't get farther than that)

      I normally get about 4-5 hours of sleep for my WBTB - I tend to have more vivid dreams after 2 AM.

      Thanks for the suggestion on mantras, I'll keep it in mind!

      Welcome DreamscapeGoat! What do you do during your wbtb and as you go back to sleep? Some other things to consider exploring would be awareness work and yes mantras as you lay down for the night or at wbtb. It is normally recommended to try wild later...dilds are a great place to start!

      Have you heard of ssild? How often during the day are you RC'ing? In the meantime, enjoy recalling the brilliant worlds in the non-lucids!

      When I WBTB, I try to focus on lucid dreaming, and what I want the dream to be like. I try to get into as much detail as I possible can.

      I have not heard of SSILD, but I just looked it up, and it sounds interesting. I'll have to give it a go in the future.

      I do RC's as often as possible throughout the day, and whenever I wake up.

      Managed to have a vivid dream through WBTB. Might actually have found a dream sign, though it's a little early to say so.

      Hi Clone trooper,

      I also recommend DILD as a method to start out with. Mostly, because it will teach you all the mental preparation and other things that you will find usefull later.

      For a DILD, RCs are important. They should be meaningful. That means, that whey you RC, you have to believe, that they will work, because you may be in a dream. And with RCs, awareness question goes hand -in-hand. The awareness practice/question is what will give you this hint of awareness in your dream and urge to do RC, and both will get you lucid.

      There are many different ways you can practice daytime awareness. You can find my short but sweet awareness+RC combo here http://www.dreamviews.com/dild/13212...ods-dilds.html
      and more about RCs and also awareness, and recommended DILD technique here Induction Methods and Techniques

      Mantras are also important, as they reiforce your intent. Check out the articles please and ask, if we can clarify anything.

      You can do it

      Another WBTB, another couple of vivid dreams, another failed DILD.

      That is progress Try to enjoy the vivid dreams you are having as it can help to keep you interested in dreaming and progressing towards lucid dreaming. If you haven't already checked it out, gab's link in her post to you above is a short, concise tutorial and well worth your time. It is best to not type, write or think "failed" as above as it can create the wrong mindset in your subconscious. If anything, I would recommend calling it a DILD attempt or DILD exercise (muscles don't grow overnight). Also, continue to RC whenever you wake up and you are bound to start catching false awakenings and become lucid that way as well...most people have them frequently and just hardly ever notice them. There are apps to give you random reminders to do RC's during the day as well if you want. I use Awoken for Android and picked a dream-like tone for the short reminder...that app you can pause as well if you are in class or somewhere...you can try one that just vibrates.

      Ah, you're right, I need to keep it positive. I must not be marred by negativities!

      I actually do RCs during school, for consistency (And also for all the odd looks I get form people). I try to question myself at least once or twice per hour.

      I might try for an app in the future - thanks for the suggestion!

      If you are already doing it once or twice an hour, then no need for the app! You are doing great with the RC's! So you like the reactions from others at school? I think that is great that you have no qualms about it...is it also the nose plug RC like when you get up? Also, let me know if you have any questions.

      Yeah, it's always a day-maker when I do them during class. People act like I'm from a foreign land.

      I do a nose plug RC everytime I wake up. Gotta catch them FAs.

      Tried sleeping through the whole night without a WBTB, managed to have several small dreams and one lengthy one. I can recall all of them with perfet detail.

      the sweet smell of progress

      Yes, definitely nice progress! I am glad that you recognized it as progress since that will keep you heading in the right direction. Yes, FA's are often overlooked as a potentially easy way to get lucid...I need to RC every time I get up but I am not quite to that point yet, so great job! I was starting to do it frequently but then sometimes I would just know that I am awake and don't RC - but that is the wrong way for me to do it.

      Started to naturally wake up after about 4-6 of sleep.

      Had 2 short vivid dreams. Still no LD, but I am making progress.

      I've done it - I had a DILD just last night.

      Didn't get too far, tried to stabilize by rubbing my hands together - but it was a DILD, nonetheless.

      Now to work on keeping calm and stabilizing.

      Caught an FA last night. Didn't get very far, felt very heavy, and only one eye would stay open. Anything I can do about this in the future?

      Congrats on LD#1 on here!!! Rubbing your hands is good and touching things around you calmly soaking in the scene around you and reminding yourself you are dreaming. It takes some practice and confidence. Practice it during the day perhaps when you do your RCs. If you find yourself waking up, keep your eyes closed and try to DEILD about 30 seconds and if nothing seems to happen try a motionless RC like levitating...you might already be dreaming again. The eye thing, it probably won't happen often and may never again but if it ever does try prying it open with your dream fingers and believe it will do the trick and then it will work.

      Had another DILD - this time, I had a 6th finger on my right hand. Attempted to change the dream scene, but the dream started to fade when I did. Shouting 'Clarity' seemed to work for a bit, but I woke up soon afterwards.

      I forgot to stabilize, hurrr

      Looks like you are on the roll! Congrats. All you practice is paying off. Just a little reminder, since people tend to forget (not saying you too), that when questioning reality, it's really good to actually believe, that you are dreaming. Even if you know you are not. Good luck, keep 'em coming!

      Oh, and you could start with changing something small. Or expect the change to happen behind your back, so when you turn around, there it is.

      No lucid dream last night, but a load of short, vivid dreams that I can remember easily.

      Dream recall can fluctuate, even under best of circumstances. Keep using your DJ. Happy dreams.

      Yes, good progress indeed! LDs can come in spurts early on before becoming more consistent so keep up the good work. Did you have any other questions so far?
