      I had some interesting lucid moments in an attempt on sunday. I've had a big goal of making the ET glowing finger and using it to heal things. I was able to make my finger glow but it was like using the dodge tool on photoshop.

      Congrats on the continued LDs! I like the ET finger idea. Are you planning on attempting healing things that need healing in waking life? I would never rule out the power of mind over matter, at least in healing certain things.

      I know there are people studying whether or not lucid dreams have impact on physical health, so i figure that would be a good thing to work on in my life.

      also.. interesting stuff from last night

      10:00
      3:15 (fitbit worked)
      up and across the house, took 8mg of galantamine
      18 min meditation before bed
      no day work
      4 dreams 1 lucid all quality in the 3-4 range

      the lucid dream was crazy, I was in the audience of a theater production, It took several tries to do the nose pinch, i had to try really hard to get it to work. I knew i was dreaming but i couldn't prove it. one of the people sitting next to me got angry at me for doing a reality check. He said "I don't want this to be your dream, I like my life" I get the NP to work and I'm immediately in the empty space and it's wild.

      Now i'm lucid in the black space. I can feel cozy and asleep in my bed but also i'm drifting in and out of the memories of the dreams of the night and i shift between out of body watching the dreams segment and then i can control my body from my bed and then i'm in my body then out again. there are different scenes in different fields of vision like portals?

      Glad you seemed to enjoy the empty space/void...I sure do. The different portal-like visions sounded cool.

      "I like my life" - that's classic! That's a good one for the DC's say the darndest things thread: https://www.dreamviews.com/dream-vie...hings-113.html That kind of goes along with the way some scientists propose that we could all be living in a simulation but we may not want to believe it.

      I've been steady working the LD system since I last posted. I've been reading https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N5RVXTF...ng=UTF8&btkr=1 the complete guide to lucid dreaming by clare johnson and I LOVE IT. She is a beautiful writer and her whole mindset on dream control and induction is very inspiring. I'm also working through some Daniel Love who certainly has unique and creative application of dreamwork.

      I've also been working with a LD coach! This person has been helping me to stack techniques and build a regimen with rest days built in to prevent burnout. My goals lately are to try to hit 4 lucid nights a month and i've been reaching for a 5 minute lucid dream. Last night I hit 4 DEILD chained with 2 of them being long epics. One of the craziest bits was when i was following some people down a hallway and i saw a fridge out of the corner of my eye and said "hold up guys, i'm a little hungry" i walked around the corner and there was this old mexican lady cooking tortillas with masa in a small homey kitchen. I ate pastor tacos with her and her son. FING CRAZY.

      Anyway, this is the year i take this practice seriously. I'm meditating more and more regularly, making serious attempts multiple times a week and doing once weekly supplement dosages.

      Awesome, Tony, so great to hear! That's some very solid success right there. I think working officially with a coach is setting extremely strong intention that will bring continuing great results. Goal setting (and continuous monitoring and adjusting of goals) is one of the most powerful psychological factors in increasing performance in any discipline.

      You've given me a new dream goal...I LOVE al pastor tacos. How were they?

      DEILDs are awesome. Did you specifically work on intention for DEILDs with your coach? Long epic LDs? Wow. Truly inspiring, keep it up and report back here with the latest!

      this is from a couple of days ago. those tacos were good btw

      6 lucid dreams chained together (at least)
      Galantamine and Choline
      They moved fast, some of them lasted longer than others,
      it took me some time to fall asleep did the SILD but never felt it taking hold, didn't trance
      laying on left side
      I had so many lucid dreams, at a couple of points i thought about pulling myself out of it to write them down but instead decided to just remember what i remember and go on with it.
      The dream would fade and I would Chill until the next one started, first couple I was doing the breath and clear excercise but after that i just knew where i was and started going.

      when i did the look around on the first dream there was cobwebs, which is the second time recently that cobwebs have been present as i'm getting lucid, these were crazy b/c I examined them and they multiplied and some of them looked real and some looked computer generated and they were covered in red spiders, a few that looked like cartoons, i passed my hand through them and there were spiders on my hand and i just kept on walking b/c i didn't want to deal with that.

      THere was also another one where i was outside on a clear day with clouds and i tried to fly but couldn't get off the ground, then i looked up to see if i could see pictures in the clouds and the whole sky morphed to form the image of the Hindu goddess Kali surrounded by flowers and pinwheels made of clouds, crazy.

      working on just having longer lucid dreams, better awareness, DEILD chaining, and just going along with the experience that's happening as lucid (rather than trying to force goals or scenes or whatever) is the big push right now.

      These are great results Tony! I need to get back to experimenting with galantamine and choline (need to refresh my stock). That combination gives me very similar experiences with multiple periods of lucidity, going into and out of dreams.

      That day after feeling when you have a lucid dream, like light and tingly, more energized. Is this universal? Why does it happen?

      I know that I've felt it and have heard/read of many other's having similar experiences. I think that it is very similar to when you are very joyous after experiencing anything really special, but I would not completely rule out some other explanation.

      Great night a couple of nights ago - Chained 5 Lucid dreams together with a WBTB + DEILD combo - Daytime prep was dream checks and some yoga and meditation at bedtime. I was on the G+C tip, but i'm trying to do 2 G+C dives to every 1 Clean dive - and My goal is to have some clean lucids in the next 2 months.

      G+C - galantimine and choline-


      saw this in a comic i was reading... and realized "the room" is one of my biggest dreamsigns... anyone else feeling it?

      couple of nights ago i chained 5 LD's together with a WBTB and DEILDs. I was on Galantamine and Choline. I've been doing 2 G+C attempts for every 1 Clean attempt and i expect to see some clean LD's over the next 2 months.

      saw the image above in a comic i'm reading and realized "the room" is a huge dreamsign for me.

      day work is RC + meditation and/or yoga + Smaller dinner.

      RC - nose pinch followed by - calming breath, looking around, engaging with the world, announcing my lucidity, recalling a dream goal.

      2 nights ago 3 Lucid dreams including a WILD.

      my wild - after a shudder, i feel my body is light and stand up out of bed - it's blurry foggy, i'm very tired, struggling to stay awake. I'm clearing - nose pinch - i'm dreaming - looking around the room - i walk to the wall by the bathroom and touch it - i'm saying "I'm lucid, I'm lucid" the light blue of the wall fades to white and i'm back in my body. It's several minutes before I fall back asleep.

      You'll notice that i've passed through solid objects twice this week. Last night had some long as hell lucid dreams even though not a lot happened. I plan to try the "2 nights in a row" tonight and go for the clean wild. Wilding is happening.... how long do you think the Galantamine and Choline take to kick in? I'm usually back in bed within 10 minutes or so.

      12/2/2018
      10:00
      2:00 (before my alarm)
      G+C
      2 lucid dreams
      3 dreams total
      5:30 wake up

      lucid nose pinch, then fall backwards into the earth, through concrete, through gold, flying backward feeling the hard pull. seeing the scenery change like a reverse 2001 star child scene.

      12/5/2018
      10:30pm
      3:15
      5:30
      30min meditation and yoga before bedtime
      G+C
      1 FA non lucid where I write my dream down and then wake up
      1 WILD - where after trance i start zipping fast horizontally and i look down to see my body fade into existence
      1 FA where i do a nose pinch, it works, and i think something is wrong with my nose, then i pinch a few more times, then i look at my hand and it's giving me the Jacob ladder effect so i finally realize i'm dreaming.

      I highly recommend Yuschak's Advanced Lucid Dreaming Supplements book (easily found as a free pdf). He says Galantamine reaches it's peak at about 1 hour. It's about the same for Choline except it's levels in your blood drop off much quicker than the Galantamine. The Galantamine graph in the book looks like it still at about 80% 4 hours after taking it whereas the Choline is down to 80% after less than 2 hours. That said the graph of the "peak plasma levels" of the combination of those two substances shows a "lucidity window" of over 4 hours.

      yoga before bed

      All night lucid dreams - several of them taking place in this warehouse/movie studio situation. couple of highlights. I am doing nose pinches all night long. Sometimes i start doing wacky shit before the nose pinch and think "i better nose pinch before this gets too out of hand".

      I am standing outside, with a mountain range on the horizon. I start breast stroking up into the air with my arms first, then I remember to add the kick. I notice how it FEELS like swimming in water, same resistance. I get up in the sky a little bit and off in the distance I see a brown and white barn up in one of the mountains. I visualize what that building looks like up close and suddenly with a fast zoom effect, I'm there. I'm standing in front of the barn and the dream goes away.

      I'm in a green room next to a hallway. There's a box of unicorn pop tarts on top of a microwave small table. I grab a foil pack and open it. I break off the crackery outside and take a big bite of the iced jam part of the pop tart. It tastes very good, but i can't swallow. I don't remember how to swallow, i try to spit a little bit of it out. I hit the numbers on the microwave but when i press start, nothing happens. Then i walk into the hallway and see several microwaves on tables down the hall.

      Lots of sex in these dreams. I don't remember the order so some highlights separated by ellipses. I remember one woman with a pixie cut wearing a shiny shirt in a deep v almost like like a robe that tied at the bottom. She's smiling at me and has her arms playfully up as i lean in to kiss her. I open the shirt and her breasts are exposed. I start kissing her chest... The whole scenario is like a movie set, there's trash on the floor and a couch. I wonder if it's a porno. Steven Guidry is there and he changes into Alex Wayman... At one point I'm having sex doggy style with a woman but we don't thrust and our bodies meld together like a centaur... At one point i'm fooling around with a woman and she turns into a giant white cat, then i push the cat off me and it turns back into the woman. This happens a few times.... I remember at one point in the night fading in and out of the dream several times and wanting to keep looking for the same woman again, finding her and the dream fading during sex. This is where I'm nose pinching a lot.

      You got the triple-C: centaurs, celebrities and cats...but seriously the centaur thing sounded different/unique. Congrats on all of the lucidity!

      On a dry spell. 2.5 weeks. Took a break. Came back Choosing the data of how awake I am at the wbtb. How long in up, what I do in the break.

      10:00
      2:55
      Wake quality 2 (almost totally awake)
      10 minutes up - light stretching and sitting meditation
      sat in light hypnogogia for hours,
      never fell back alseep
      changed positions 3-4 times
      got body heavy 2-3 times
      some light images but nothing came through.
      6:15 wake up

      Not being able to fall back to sleep is no fun. Were you trying to WILD here?
