      No, I'd move on, but again, I'd keep a set of 4 active targets, some of which I'd be almost sure to encounter, some of which are less likely. It's really not very important to follow precise rules. The main thing is to get your goal-seeking center turned on throughout the day, with thinking about dreaming at least on the back burner a lot of the time. Make up your own practice, there's no reason to stick only to LaBerge, it's just a starting place.

      I have built a google doc table and i'm adding a list of targets... the goal then is to organize by category and then i can just drag and drop a new list into my email before i start my day. i had a good epic dream last night, a wbtb (natural style, glad you taught me how to do that) and a couple of false awakenings after milding before bed.
      I was on a collision course with the doer of dreams, the great Intender.

      so i'm building a list of targets and morning time for me is writing a few down to keep in mind over the course of the day. memory is big too. I've been getting better at that dream memory "spark" where there's nothing then all of a sudden it all starts flowing in... nothing since the early part of may yet but my intention is to get lucid before july starts. I plan to wbtb 2-3 times a week, keep working on my memory, prospective and recall, and work on intention and goals for inside of the dream doing visualization whenever i do reality checks. I know i'm going to make this shit happen. I've hit some really great LD streaks in the past, when i find my rhythm (it's my least favorite word to spell) it's going to slide into place.

      You example has sparked a renewed interest in PM exercises! I set a few the other day: some I hit, and some I missed. Having daily PM targets, even if it is a repeated day-long target ("every time ...."), helps keep that important goal-seeking center activated.

      It's a great idea to have concrete goals. I find goals like "I want to get lucid by <date>" or "I want to have <N> lucid dreams per week" are not effective for me. But goals like the TOTM club, and plans of doing very specific things in a lucid dream, are highly effective. Some of my all-time favorite LDs came from active TOTM goals, and performing those goals in sequence helped maintain the dream, keeping it vivid, and giving me something to look forward to doing next. Typically, as soon as I run out of "things to do," I will wake soon thereafter.

      That's great that you've been successful with improving your recall. It's important to schedule enough time after waking to let those sparks fire and the memories to flow in. I had a nice recall morning this morning that started off with a blank slate, and I was sort of bummed, but finally ended up recalling 7-8 scenes from multiple wakings over the course of the night.

      saw this comment from Sivason and i'm making it my main LD goal... Also, Stabilizing the dream and flying.

      What was a powerful training routine for me, was to have only this one primary goal, and keep going this until it is not too hard.

      Dream Goal: Stop and try to remember where you are sleeping. Then what were you doing at bedtime. Then what phase of your life you are in, such as retired, in summer school, recently involved in a new relationship.

      It is not as shiny as flying to another planet, but as goals that lead to better LDing this is what I suggest.

      memory really is a muscle, and it's tied to patience.

      I'm emailing this to myself to review before bed.

      JUNE'S BEGINNER TASKS: (Anybody feel free to have fun with these, but you'll get wings only if you are a beginner. Some will change each month!)
      Dream Goal: Stop and try to remember where you are sleeping. Then what were you doing at bedtime. Then what phase of your life you are in,
      1. Slow down, look around, describe what you see.
      2. Touch the ground. What is it? Grass, asphalt?
      3. Look at your body. What are you wearing?
      4. Find a DC and shake their hand.
      5. Run your hands through your hair. How does it feel?
      6. Find text you can read, then look at it again. Has it changed?
      7. Cross your eyes and stare at the tip of your nose.

      No hits yet but i keep working. Trying to stay dedicated to a limited number of things.

      Visualisation and imagination of lucidity - getting that excited feeling in the chest.

      I’m also meditating daily and yoga a couple times a week, but that’s for me more than for the lucidity. It should be helping but it’s a seperateish thing.

      I like this plan in order to avoid getting burned out while you build back up your practice.

      Are you still doing WBTBs 2-3 times a week? If you are doing WBTBs, do they involve getting out of bed (if you can get back to sleep reliably) and for how long?

      I haven't been getting out of bed, though this week i've had a sick kid who's getting up to vomit. I have gotten out of bet for that but i wasn't thinking of LD. I have people i share a bed with so i can't do the alarm, so i either incubate an internal alarm (which has proven successful) or i just go to sleep. One thing i've been doing is writing down 15 times a day at various times (i will have multiple lucid dreams tonight) to keep up intention and to inspire visualization. yesterday i was painting with my kid at what USED to be our kitchen table and i took one of those pages and painted a beach scene i daydream about LD teleporting to. When i think about it, i try to get the full 360 panoramic, including sounds of waves and gulls and the feel of wet sand in my feet and the wind and the salty smell of the ocean. the shimmer on the water from the sun, the squinting, the heat on my skin.

      So fogel, you think i should be getting out of bed? can you give me tips on my wbtb procedure?

      Yes, if you are able to reliably go back to sleep after getting up, then i would get up and experiment with how long you stay up. Getting up during WBTB will wake your brain up more and thus increase your chances of becoming lucid. If you do awareness work while up, that also increases your chances. I'd save these "full" WBTBs for times when you can sleep in, at least while you are still experimenting with how awake you can get and still go back to sleep relatively easily.

      I like the detail you use in visualizing your beach scene with all the senses.

      5 minute wbtb
      Got up walked around
      Sensory work
      Big time memory of my dream
      Lay back down
      Visualize back in the same dream
      Mantra “i will have many lucids tonight”
      Lay on my back for a long time
      Eventually roll over and go to sleep
      Wake up paralyzed on a beach
      Lucid
      Frozen
      All i can move is my eyes

      I feel the sand, i hear the water, i look around with my eyes
      I remember i’m in my bed asleep
      Fade to black.
      I think about dield but can’t hold still


      BIG WIN
