      Mazafo´s workbook

      Background
      Ok im 21 years old, and i know a bit about LD, in fact some years ago i had 1, but i cant remember why i didnt practice anymore, well, the dream was normal until my mind said, this is a dream! and snap!, i could control dream but all my vision was very blurry, i summoned a person and eat at mcdonald because i wanted to know how food taste in dreams (they taste the same).

      So, i want to LD again, like A LOT , right now im readir Laberge EWOLD, and doing some MILD techniques. Im having a DJ with several entries in it, but the last 3 days i cant remember any dream at all, and i feel a bit frustated :C i hope you guys can help me with this.

      Im doing the Self-Awareness and Self criticize (i cant remember the name) techniques i have 2 or 3 days in it, plus RC

      Obviosuly i want to LD a lot, and control my dreams and improve my dream recal. Thanks for the Forum its awesome it has a lot of information

      Welcome to the DILD workbooks Mazafo! Don't stress when recall dips, it happens to the best of them. FryingMan compiled his recall tips in this post:
      http://www.dreamviews.com/lucid-chal...ml#post2144901

      Other than that it sounds like you are off to a good start reading Laberge and starting your practices. Let us know if you have any questions.

      Don't stress, recall can be off and on and more so in the beginning.

      They are definitely longer…remembering the earlier parts is the challenge at times. Did you ever check out that link on dream recall above?

      Fogelbise has given excellent advice (including the link to my recall tips …seriously, read through that post, several times). The main ingredients to building great recall are:

      * consistency: reach for recall every single time you find yourself awake after having been asleep. *Every time*. Do not give up, take "recall vacations," etc.

      * strong desire: you have to really want it, recalling dreams should be really important to you. Set intention at night before bed, "I remember my dreams…I remember my dreams…"

      * proper mental state and sleep conditions. Cultivate a happy, positive attitude. Patience is part of this. Do not get frustrated when you don't recall dreams, just keep on practicing, know that the memories will start coming. Get enough sleep, and maintain a regular sleep schedule. Preferably, make sure your room is dark and quiet. If it can't be then use a sleep mask and/or earplugs.

      * spending enough time on recall: it can take 15 minutes or more sometimes of lying quietly for "lost" dream memories to resurface, you need to judge this for yourself once you get more experienced at it.

      Recall fluctuates up and down normally over time, if you hit a low period it doesn't mean your recall is "gone," it just means you're that much closer to another "high" period again!

      It's pretty cool how you can esimate how long your dreams are. For me, things happen but i don't really have a good sense of duration.

      You can create a DJ entry in several different ways, one of the easiest ones is to just click the "Copy to DJ" button on the bottom left of every post you see here on the forum (and edit the subject and contents), another is to go to the "Dream Journals" section (button at the top left of every page) and "+ Create DJ Entry" button on the right side of the page.

      That's great that recall is on the rise! Keep up your focus and effort, be very consistent every time you wake up to reach for dream memories, and your recall will build and build!

      One thing I like to do on a daily basis is post the one-sentence summaries of my dreams to the one-sentence summary thread (sometimes my sentences run-on a bit ) here:

      http://www.dreamviews.com/general-dr...-sentence.html

      Then I use that post and "copy to DJ" and fill in the details on the full DJ. I'll then sometimes edit the one-sentence summary with the link to the full DJ.

      Although, note that you can get to any user's DJ just by clicking on their username on a post to the left and select "View DJ entries".

      Thanks. I've worked on my recall very consistently/diligently, and I've arranged my life so that I don't have to rush anywhere in the mornings most days, that makes a difference.

      Absolutely, being tired is one of the main reasons for reduced or no recall, along with feeling stressed/anxiety. Being calm, happy, and well-rested usually results in better dreaming.

      Glad you liked the links, there is so much information on this site it's important to have a "one stop shopping" list for the posts that really resonate and get to the heart of the matter. Keep it up, MILD is a very powerful path to lucidity!

      Finally Yesterday i had my very first LD since 5 years ago. Heres the link1st LD since 5 years - Dream Journals - Lucid Dreaming - Dream Views

      So the thing is, that when the LD finish, i didnt write it right away, i just slept because i was too tired, and when i wake up it almost fades away i had to do some memory to recall it, but im still missing great part of the dream, now i want to work on my recall. Whats the point on LD if you cant remember?.

      I enjoyed the experience and cant wait to LD again!, so thanks you guys for this. I have some questions:
      - In the dream it was too bright and felt real, but i feel that my conscious is at 70%, what can i do with this? i felt that a part was missing and the dream was blurry or with blackouts.
      - What is that couple (DJ entry)

      Congrats! As always the recipe for great dreaming (lucid or non-lucid) is:

      * work on building awareness, paying attention/mindfulness, and memory during the day

      * work on recall by reaching for dreaming memories every time you find yourself awake.

      * plan some stability rituals for when you get lucid: engaging with the dream environment (touch, smell, listen, eat, use all the senses), really looking around, and slowing down instead of running off immediately upon getting lucid. Remind yourself of goals, and keep your mind balanced between continuing to realize that you're dreaming, and on the dream itself. This is where waking awareness practice really helps, as does sitting meditation practice, which builds focus and the ability to concentrate calmly for long periods of time.

      And realize that the dream state and dreams are different than waking life. The attraction to me is that they are quite different.
