      thx for showing me that FryingMan

      1LD

      went to bed shortly after 22:00
      put my alarm with the same new ring tune for WBTB at 3:40 and 3:55 across the room
      set another alarm next to my head for 3:35 I think
      before falling asleep I concentrated on a few SSILD cycles
      after waking up to the WBTB alarms I had to get up and was a little bit more awake than usually during my crappy attempts of WBTB
      I concentrated on SSILD again
      I remember having 2 dreams after that
      in one of them I became lucid for maybe 10 seconds during which I saw some guy next to me
      I looked closely at his face and shortly after that I think I immediately lost it again

      last night was a weird one
      I went to bed a bit after 22:00
      I put 2 alarms on my phone for 3:40 and 3:55 as well as another alarm for 3:30
      I put the phone right next to me
      did a bit of SSILD before falling asleep and during WBTB
      then I had some weird dream where I thoguht I was dead - and was the most relieving feeling like I can do whatever I want much like becoming lucid
      so I'm not sure whether or not I actually became lucid at some point

      last night i went to bed a bit after 23:00 and decided to take a break from the WBTB alarms forgot about the third one though

      don't really remember when I went to bed probably around 23:00
      had the same 3 alarms for 3:30, 3:40 and 3:55
      was too tired though to concentrate on lucid dreaming though
      had a mediocre DJ entry but
      I think I should point out that almost every night I remember my dreams extremely vivid and I can clearly see everything 100% realistically at many points during my dreams
      doesn't really help me to get lucid though as it seems
      neither am I asking myself whether I could be dreaming no matter if I am in a zombie apocalypse once again or in a massive luxurious mafia appartment

      Congrats on the vivid dreams! I believe vivid dreams are a stepping stone to lucidity, and are a form of pre-lucidity itself. It takes intention, memory, and a slightly awakened brain to get lucid, which is why WBTB is so useful, it lets you re-set intention, and it you do your WBTB at the right time, once you're done with your long deep sleep phases, it's easier to remember your goal to get lucid in subsequent dreams.

      thanks fryingman
      I should take that advice and remind myself to really get up for a bit during my WBTBs
      maybe try solving a rubik's cube and going back to bed or sth like that

      1LD

      went to bed at about 23:00
      decided to take a day off of WBTB
      deactivated all of my alarms
      a few minutes after waking up in the morning and thinking about what I had dreamt I remembered that I was lucid for a short moment
      there was a cute girl I walked up to and kissed which made me lucid
      as usual when I become lucid like that I held on to the kiss instead of thinking more about being in a dream and collecting myself first
      and after a few moments I woke up I think

      Congrats on your KILD! (kiss induced lucid dream , one of my favorite types of LDs! However, as you noted, it is very tempting to stay there in the enjoyable moment, all those dream goals seem far away! But in time, and focusing on the importance of your goals to you, you should be able to pull away. In fact, I had a LD the other night that started with me getting lucid as I swooped in to kiss a girl, and I stood up, said "I'm dreaming!" and went on with the dream. I used to spend the whole lucid time staying there in the kiss as well, so if I can move on from it to doing other things, so can you!

      thanks I wonder if I will ever not give into that should the dream start like that xD

      did the most dedicated attempt to get lucid in a long time
      I went to bed at about 22:30
      I did several cycles of SSILD before falling asleep
      put my phone away so I had to get up for the alarm
      put a second alarm for the same time on
      also this time around I tried a different time setting for my alarm and set it to go off at 4:10
      I set a second device to go off at the same time
      when I woke up for my WBTB I tried solving my rubik's cube once again after the known algorithms
      after some time I went on and did some SSILD cycles until it got hard for me to concentrate and I started drifting away - pretty much exactly how you want it to go for SSILD as far as I know
      didn't get any results this time though sadly
      made one short DJ entry

      If that experience is one of your goals, well, then you're already there and there's nothing you have to do but enjoy it! I've had *many* LDs that started and ended with the same kiss…

      went to bed at around 22:30
      decided to take a break from wbtb since I had to get up earlier than usual
      remembered many dreams when I woke up in the morning
      I was pretty motivated to write them down immediately as well
      I tried to remember as much as I could but almost all of the details vanished so all I wrote down was between 1 and 4 tiny rows of text per dream for each of them

      i did some rather long meditation sessions yesterday
      didn't focus on any particular technique when initially falling asleep
      set 2 alarms on different devices for 3:40
      I think I only woke up to them very shortly and after I managed to deactivate the one on the device I'm not as used to I immediately fell asleep again
      remebered lots of dreams one of which was extremely detailed
      I was somewhere near to my home where I often visit to go swimming
      I remember that everything felt amazingly realistic and the water was really nice and warm even though it was cloudy and grey outside
      I also remember cutting off one of my toes without feeling pain only some sort of uneasiness very vividly yey

      fell asleep sometime around 23:30
      had 2 alarms on different devices for 3:40
      put my phone away from my bed
      had to get up to deactivate it
      when I went to bed again I tried to do SSILD cycles but couldn't concentrate enough to even do a single session of concentrating on visuals
      had alot of vivid dreams though and wrote down quite a bit as well in my DJ

      went to bed earlier sometime around 21:00
      did several cycles of SSILD
      put two alarm for 3:40 on seperate devices
      put my phone away so I had to get up
      when I woke up to the alarm it took me a bit to realize that the alarm had gone off and I should deactivate it
      did a bit of rubik's cube solving for a few minutes
      when falling asleep I did several cycles of SSILD again
      didn't have an LD but I had tons of dreams
      lots of details were lost but I still wrote down about 5 dreams and lots of text

      did some SSILD when i went to bed sometime around after watching the jury 23:30
      set alarms for 3:40 again on two devices - had my phone away from the bed so I had to get up
      got up for my WBTB and deactivated the alarms didn't stay awake enough to do SSILD though

      one of my dreams (non lucid) was very vivid and it was amazing - not that it was super fun or something that I had planned to do in an LD
      I for some reason used glasses in that dream and they enhanced my vision like I did before without using glasses during an LD by just focussing on my vision
      everything became much sharper and the high contrast of the colours espacially stayed in my mind

      19.08. was the second day of sensei's competition
      did SSILD when falling asleep initially
      did a WBTB and tried a bit of mnemonics
      had a DILD initiated by seeing sb who is dead IRL
      made a DJ entry on DV

      last night I woke up after a scary dream at 3:20 and I used that as my WBTB
      deactivated my 3:40 alarm
      wrote down as much as I could remember during that WBTB

      tried to do SSILD when initally falling asleep but it was pretty hard to concentrate
      when I wkoe up to my alarms (again one of them far away enough so I had to get up) at 3:20 I was really tired
      I'm not sure I think I thought about lucid dreaming and fell asleep again
      woke up and laid there for a long time until I was remotely awake enough to try and open my eyes
      at the time I had already forgotten most of my dreams
      did some poor DJ entries - partially only fragments of dreams as usually lately

      I wonder how I once managed to get 5-7 dreams a night - and even then I didn't have more LDs than 1 (really short one) every week
      now it seems that if I actually want to try to remember more dreams I have to jump out of bed the second I wake up which isn't very nice obviously ^^

      23.08.
      WBTB at 3:20 was really tired though so nothing special going on

      didn't do a WBTB last night
      only remembered 2 dreams but could write down a lot of details for one of them

      did a lot of meditation lately

      Most people have to stay still in bed with their eyes closed to get the most recall. Have you tried setting an intention to do that since you mentioned that jumping out of bed the second you wake up isn't very nice?

      you're probably right fogelbise I should probably set an intention again by using mnemonics and meditation again
      basically sometimes when I wake up and I still remember more dreams I am often so tired and still half asleep that I lie there for another hour before I can get myself to rub my eyes and start using my DJ

      had one LD the night between yesterday and the day before that
      didn't do anything special no technique or anything - the possibility of everything being a dream came to mind and I instantly knew that it only could be a dream
      didn't even do a reality check, tried to gain self awareness about how nothing I see is real and all is generated by my subconscious and so on
      didn't last longer than at max a minute though and I wasn't lucid enough to remember dream goals and ankering methods
      should have rubbed my hands and focussed on my senses or maybe tried spinning around which I haven't done yet in an LD

      I remembered only one dream from last night but in lots of details which lead to a very long DJ entry
