      Second page baby! Wha-What~!

      Copy that Mr. fogelbise. I usually count my fingers right after the nose pinching, but I guess it didn't follow up to the dreams yet. Besides, I think I should also ask myself (how did I come here?) as RC. And hey! Have I ever told you that I woke up few times before the alarm? Though I wake up very drowsy that I can't reach my DV, but I did it! Thanks Mr. fogelbise. ^^

      I guess I shouldn't talk about my last sleep as it has nothing but SHAME! Barley a fragment stuck in my head. I dreamt about sitting next to a kid while playing with his hair. What is it with me and kids . One more dream about a kid and kids will be a dream sign for me.

      I still think my recalling problem is that, in working days, I want to sleep more than I want to recall. so I just lose myself in sleeping, focusing, not to remember to wake up motionless recalling my dreams, but to wake up early and not being late. (Mr. FryingMan's links teach me that *^^*) Good news, tonight is weekend, which makes ... ...

      Tonight is the night for my 11th Lucid dream!

      That sounds good for your RC's and I do really like the "How did I come here" one and other questioning ones you mentioned before, but try not to overload yourself since you are finding a good balance already perhaps without adding too much. That's great that you are waking before the alarm…your intentions at work!

      Best of the mornings/evenings to you DV! Oohh how I missed talking to you ^.^ Telling you about my failures and how to NOT achieve lucidity . I didn't write in almost a week because of exams period.
      In this replay, I will mentioned what special things happened in my sleep nights. without further saying, lets go!

      Night of 4-Aug:
      Before sleeping I drunk water in an attempt to perform WBTB. Failed. Instead, a long, vivid dream was the result. It had one of my most common dream sign which is a sense of danger. I didn't notice I was sleeping though.

      Night of 5-Aug:
      That's when my best achievement in the last weekend occurred. I woke up after 7.5 hours of sleeping, but I was still sleepy. So I thought that this will be my WBTB. In the afternoon, After 4 hours of being awake (I know it is supposed to be called a nap but because I was sleepy since my waking I called it WBTB) I went to bed, repeated some mantras and returned to sleep. and guess what happened?! No, you're wrong. I did indeed have a LD! . Here's the twist though..
      I was dreaming that I was on my bed just like how i slept. Upon breathing with my nose shut I realized I was dreaming. But, I couldn't move too much. In fact, I almost couldn't move at all. All I could do was swinging my right arm. And every time I try to get up, the dream seemed to start fading. After several attempts, I did one last big attempt to get off my bed that resulted in me waking. Well.. it might be not a big success, but its a big step forward .

      Night of 3,6,7,8,9-Aug had either no memory of the dream caused by alarm, or fainted fragments that I didn't write down due to sleepiness.

      Yeah, I think that was the summery of my previous days progress. Ummmm I can smell the next LD very near . Hey! did you guys noticed that the book (Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self) by Mr. Robert Waggoner is available in the Books Play for Android users? I still would prefer paper form but I had to go with that because It is not available to buy in my place. If I want one I will have to order it from Amazon just like the other books . Anyways, Loved talking to you <3
      [I'm aware that I stayed 7 days without reporting to the Summer Competition thread which should result in kicking me out of the team, I was not ready for it anyway. I hope I get replaced by a better dreamer who benefit the team more than me]

      Tonight is the night for my 11th Lucid dream!

      Hello~ ^^

      Last sleep was rather, odd? I mean.. I usually forget my dreams due to alarm, morning rush, with the addition of not updating my journal. But not today. Today I woke up remembering a full dream, and even though I didn't write it down, I can still remember a big part of it. What the heck did I do right this time? . I guess it's because I missed my afternoon nap yesterday. I'm gonna try that again. Plus, It's weekend baby! A lucid dream is right around the corner I'm sure of it !

      Tonight is the night for my 11th Lucid dream.

      Congratulations on another LD!! As for your last question, your mind may be starting to automatically look for chances to hold onto recall since you treat it as somewhat important to you.

      Thanks fogelbise , I indeed believe in the importance of recalling.

      In addition, my last sleep some what prove it. I drunk a glass of water and went to sleep, it resulted in me waking after 4 hours because I had to go to bathroom, and I could indeed recall a huge fragment (if not the full dream). I stayed up for about 45 minutes before heading to bed again. I was sleepy enough to perform WILD but too sleepy to repeat mantras. Well.. my WILD failed for no reason other than I'm not used to it. It's a bit hard for me to stay still and sleep in the same time. I only need more practice .

      Here's the main story. for 2 hours I was attempting to consciously sleep (I didn't cause insomnia to myself cause I was already sleepy) but instead, I had +4 mini sleeps, each with it's own dream! And I can recall in one of those dreams, I could notice a difficulty in reading texts so I suspected that I was dreaming. Stupid me, I didn't do any RC. Eventually, I stayed up for an hour and slept for another hour then woke up to my day. not best sleep ever but really cool dreaming experience ^^.

      Tonight is the night for my 11th Lucid dream.

      Lucid dream #11!

      Hioo~. Yes you read that right, I just had another LD ! Though it wasn't full of action, and it didn't even reach a whole minute, but a lucid dream is a lucid dream right ^^ ? I will write the whole night story.

      So here I am at 2 am reaching my bed after drinking a glass of water, full of mixed feelings due to a long day that was full of ups and downs. I didn't meditate as I was too tired. I did repeated mantras but for almost 2 minutes only. My WBTB was after 8 hours of sleeping. I could recall a dream but it faded fast (I need more training to wake up motionless). You thought 8 hours of sleeping is enough for me? What I love most in weekends is that I can sleep for almost 12 hours. I'm a bed potato . I went back to bed after staying up for almost 50 minutes.

      I was trying to sleep consciously, and I had a dream with the most obvious dream sign ever! I was watching... "inappropriate scenes" with the presence of my family members . I was so embarrassed that I woke up. Tried consciousness sleeping again, and this time, I dreamt about being in a place that I don't know, but I had the argue to go back home immediately. While I was running back home, I said to myself "why I don't use my car?" checked my pockets and I had no keys, no wallet, no phone, nothing. (Losing something is a dream sign for me) I was like OMG it's not the time for RC, but I did the nose pinch test anyway.

      The strange thing is that I could actually block my nose. But not completely. It felt like I could breath due to in complete blockage. But the RC could rise my awareness even though it failed. I could notice that I can't remember how or why I'm here. Hence I knew I was dreaming! What happens after was basically me trying to stabilize the dream and not wake up. Hands rubbing was good technique, but I think there was nothing I could do as I had enough sleep and it felt like my REM phase is about to end.

      Lovely dreaming experiences, can't wait for more of it and hopefully mastering my mind ^.^

      Congratulations Raed!! You have really found a path that works well for you!! If you keep up your focus and avoid falling into the trap that many of us do by "resting on your laurels" you will go far with lucid dreaming and create many, many lengthy vivid, present experiences. I also have no doubt that you will make huge inroads into what you described as "mastering my mind" above!

      And your enthusiasm is contagious! (in a good way)

      Lucid Dream #12!

      Dang it! How do you do these quoting thing?? I hope I'm doing them right..
      twelve hours of sleep? Ugh, I don't know about that, that really takes the bed potato to accomplish
      Ha! You call that an accomplishment? You should see me in summer vacations, it's like sleeping Olympics in my bed .

      And your enthusiasm is contagious! (in a good way)
      Ohh.. What a joy to see some appreciation for my attitude *^^*. Last people saw me talk like that called me gay. (Not that there is anything wrong with being gay .. please don't get offended )


      Hii everyone! Sorry for not submitting in like forever. I had bad days of exams and bad mood, and it's not done yet . But I hope I will have the ability to submit more often in the coming days. So, Guess who had another failed LD ? Without further boring lines, Lets get to the previous nights stories:

      Night of 13-Aug:
      Yes, this is when I had the LD. And it was right after the night of my 11th LD! Heres the details:
      Spoiler for LD #12 details:


      Night of 14-Aug:
      Strangely-Funny dream. I forgot everything about it but the last part. It was me, holding a girl's talking head (By head I mean with no body) from her hair. The funny part is that she was making funny faces. So funny that my laughing on her woke me up. Come to find out, my waking body was laughing as hard as my dream body. It was hilarious.

      Night of 18-Aug:
      Long WBTB, Nothing special happened.

      And yeah.. That was a brief of what happened in the previous nights. The nights I didn't mention has nothing special or zero recall. I really enjoy telling you about my nights ^^ I wish I could tell you about my days too but that would be better in another forum. Thank you for your time spent in my humble workbook :* .

      Tonight is the night for my 13th Lucid dream.

      I didn't say over confident sentences, I didn't stare at the walls silently, instead I kept walking in circles telling myself that I didn't wake up and I'm still sleeping. Because my drowsy sight mimics the dreaming sight, I could mimic the feeling of joy of being lucid! I kept opening doors imagining that behind that door is another place other than the usual, I kept calling names like I was summoning them, I kept doing that for like 20 minutes before I went to bed again. Man even though it wasn't lucid dream, it sure was fun thing to do.

      The problem was that the dream was so intense, even though I knew I was dreaming I couldn't control it! Aware that I was dreaming, I kept going with the dream scenario of me being investigated by the police. And for some reason I TOTALLY forgot that I'm in my head and I could manipulate everything I see.

      You can loosen the LD practice during exam weeks of course so you focus better on that. Good luck to your exams!

      I think that is a pretty good way to set the proper mindset for the LD experience! Good thinking, probably helped you becoming lucid a lot.

      Happened to me too last night! I heard an alarm which made me panic and I did a nose pinch, I could breath, but I didn't stop to think about it twice. I guess it's best to set the intention of simply stopping once becoming lucid and collecting yourself before moving on.

      Hahaha More dreams like this please!

      And we really enjoy reading about your nights and progress! This workbook is just awesome Maybe you could add stuff you did during the day that might have effected your LDing? I don't know about the workbook rules, but I think you can post anything you want in here, this is your personal thread in a sort of way

      I agree, this can be fun! I recently started imagining doing all sorts of things while driving (like telekinesis and other super powers), I just have to remember to not forget to drive safely as well. I think it is more effective during WBTB like you did though.

      So funny that my laughing on her woke me up. Come to find out, my waking body was laughing as hard as my dream body. It was hilarious.
      I love when this happens, things are always so much more hilarious in the dream realm!

      I wish I could tell you about my days too but that would be better in another forum. Thank you for your time spent in my humble workbook :* .
      Sure, feel free too share your days too, see below.

      This is all very good advice! It is easy to loose lucidity, but if you make a practice of taking a moment to think about your situation, remember goals and periodically remind yourself that you are dreaming, it will surely help you to stay lucid longer.

      Sure Raed, write about what you would like to write about here. It is your workbook. I look forward to reading more.

      Hey all ~!

      I rarely have nightmares or any bad dreaming experiences, but last night I had a "bad" dream indeed:
      Normal day, nothing major happened. I didn't have any naps so by the sleep time I was exhausted. I forgot to drink water to enhance my dreams but you know what also I forgot? To eat! I was so hungry that I woke up after less than 4 hours of sleeping due to my hunger. I went downstairs and I found nothing to eat (Nothing "ready" to eat. We have food but I was too lazy to cook). So, I drink a glass of water to silence my hunger a bit and went back to sleep. That's when I got a bad dreaming experience but have a good progress in LDing training.

      Spoiler for Not the best dream ever:


      Well, I guess hunger and sleep should not go together . Or maybe it wasn't because of hunger? I don't know.
      if you make a practice of taking a moment to think about your situation, remember goals and periodically remind yourself that you are dreaming, it will surely help you to stay lucid longer.
      If only it was that easy . I mean.. When I'm aware that I'm in a place with no consequences for whatever action I do, the worst in me just wanna come out and screw every law known to humanity . But I will practice to calm down next time I have LD. Thanks for the lovely advice. <3

      This workbook is just awesome
      I just cried a little inside (of joy ofc). Thank you for enjoying my workbook and motivate me more. <3

      Tonight is the night for my 13th Lucid dream.

      At least you questioned if you were dreaming. You are doing that a lot and are able to catch it many times...so great job! Sometimes the level of awareness just isn't quite high enough and that happens to us all. You might get lucky in some of these low awareness questioning moments if you form a habit of always performing multiple RC's (not including tasting chicken, haha). You are on a very good path!

      Uncounted LD.

      Hello workbook~ ^^
      Congratulations Mr. fogelbise and Mr. Saizaphod for having green names and stars . What is that? Why am I not colored too? I wanna be blue *-*.

      My last night was normal, but I don't want to talk about last night. I want to talk about yesterday. almost at 10 am I was on my bed ready to sleep when the mailman called me and said (Ain't no sleeping for you homie, I'm coming shortly to deliver something). So I fought sleeping while waiting for him. In 2 hours of waiting, I had about 4-5 mini sleeps, each one with it's own dream! And surprisingly, one of them was LD!

      Because I was so sleepy, I think I performed WILD by mistake . though it was an LD indeed, I decided not to count it as a successful attempt . The reason why is that, it was so unclear. It was like when you barely open your eyes and see. Sounds and senses was good though. In addition, it was like 33 seconds long. But of course, it is far away of being a failure.

      I would really love to share the dream with you guys, it just.. I don't think you really want to know how pervert my dreams are. Lovely experience, glad to finally see what WILD feels like^^. Maybe I was exaggerating in my fears before.

      Tonight is the night of my 13th Lucid dream. ^^

      I need help.

      Hi, I'm sorry if this sounds a bit off LD topic, but it is connected to LD.
      I suffer from a problem that might sound a little stupid, but it really can cost me my future. People, >I can not study<.

      Since the first day I joined university, all my grades were bad. And it is going dramatically worse! they are so bad that the university literally, literally threatened to kick me out if I didn't raise them up in this summer! I'm not joking. I'm not even close to exaggerating. I would pic the sh*t for you but it is in Arabic. The reason why is that I can not sit down and read a book, specially an academic one. I can't force myself to sit away from distractions and read, memorize, and solve the curriculum. I hardly can read non-academic books. Laberge's book took me about 3 months to finish it. I had Daniel's Are You Dreaming? book since April and I still didn't finish it (I'm close though).

      I can not read . I can spell the words alright, I can understand the language. I just can not sit and read for extended duration of time. (By extended I mean more than 1 hour a day). It cause me headache and lose of concentration. How is that related to lucid dreaming? If I study, I will have an eased mind and LD would be so much easier. Plus, I can set new goals in LD to enhance my knowledge, which is a good way to practice LDing.

      Help? Anyone? If you have any advice, link, video, photo, comment, an angry mom that can lecture me about how study is important, anything! Just post here or PM me or E-Mail. Please.. Thank you.

      Hi Raed3700, well, you could leverage your love of dreaming to find the will to improve at reading/studying. One of the key pieces of advice about how to succeed at LDing is "to take care of your (waking) life". Concerns and anxieties from the waking world can affect dreaming, so to get the most out of dreaming, try to get the most out of waking! Fulfill your responsibilities, don't let them slide.

      LaBerge also mentions how willpower is important for lucid dreaming practice. I've found one of the best ways to get around procrastination is just to start. Force yourself to start, and you may find that once you start something, it is easier to continue it.

      Thank you! ^^ It means we are now a part of the Community Team as "Dream Guides". I take the title basically as " We are always here and ready to help you to become lucid, ask away! " Blue named color would be for moderators, I don't think you'll manage to get that, but you can try to get yourself a nice fancy Orange name! You can get it by trying to complete Lucid Tasks of the Month. Completing a task will also give you a nice pair of wings that will be above your username The tasks are really cool and interesting too usually! ( The color and wings last until the end of the month, then you have to complete a lucid task again. )

      I only count the "good" lucids as lucids too, but if you knew you were in a dream lucidly, then why not count it as a lucid even if it lasted only 33 seconds? Progress progress. What was the WILD transition like if there was one? Or did you just appear into the dream world lucidly? And yes, now that you know what WILD is like you can try it again with zero fear!

      If you want to post your "gone wild ( )" lucids you can, just remember to wrap explicit content in spoilers.

      Maybe you could try to negotiate with your school about your grades. Like if you find math and some other subjects hard and some other subjects easier, more appealing and beneficial to you, maybe you could ask if you could focus on rising the grades of those subjects and loosen the studies on the other ones, so that you'll just pass the courses? Don't know what kind of policy your school system has, but I'm just throwing that out there You can try to google for help and search Youtube videos along the lines " How to concentrate on studies / How to manage your studies ", maybe you'll find that what you need that way!
      Try reading an X amount of pages and do X amount of homework every day, make it a rule. It's simple and easy. Try limiting your distractions and make them a reward for after the homework is done maybe? If you can read an hour today, tomorrow you can try to read for an hour and five minutes. The day after that go for an hour and ten minutes. Familiarize your self to academic reading little by little? <- You can probably find a lot of tips and information like that by searching the internet along the lines that I suggested earlier.

      Well, if you read the X amount of pages for an example you could feel more relieved of the pressure, thus being able to focus better on your LDing practice afterwards. "Your work for today is over, you'll do the same tomorrow. But now, to lucidity!" And yes, you can search your subconsciousness for answers to how to better your studies with lucidity as well! Maybe you'll find a "Homework Dream Guide" who will teach you all the methods you'll need to manage your studies and concentration. ( The guide could be the embodiment of your " how to study the way how I study the best" ( if that makes sense ).

      Thank you. Like Saizaphod said, the task of the month tasks are fun and it comes with those cool wings you may see around the forum and orange color (I like having wings…I noticed my achievement badges are missing, oh well). If you are here a while (I hope you are), you could have blue one day if you want.

      Why not count it…this is all part of your early experiences that you learn and grow from. You can also update your LD count that shows on the left under your username if you want. (Update from your user profile - "about me" tab)

      Like Saizaphod said, anytime you would like to post any adult-rated dreams just use the "spoiler" tag function (from the "Go Advanced" posting options, it looks like a white square picture frame, close to the chain and anchor symbols).

      Some very good ideas in my friend's posts above for you to try and see what you connect with. I will throw in some ideas as well to give you some variety to consider. I also want to give you a little hope tied to lucid dreaming! I found that at some point during my lucid dreaming practice that I became curious again, like when I was a child, with a thirst for new knowledge. Maybe you will find this too! Perhaps you can also do a search for ways to "cultivate curiosity" or "cultivate a learning mindset" or a "learner's attitude" just to throw some ideas out there of how you might find the right search results. I like the idea of asking a dream guide in the dream to help you with this. You are basically probing your own deep well of a brain for ideas and you may be able to also do this after a good meditation session or quiet contemplation. You can even quickly write down ideas that pop into your head "brainstorming" style and piece them together to come up with a plan. I hope our ideas help as I do think education is important. You got this!

      Lucid dream #13!

      Saizaphod, I actually didn't feel any transition. one second I was fighting sleep, and then I was harassing someone . The reason why I think it was WILD because, the dream was so unclear that I think it was not fully formed. which happens in WILDs.
      fogelbise, I COUNT WHATEVER DREAMS I WANT! Just kidding. I didn't count it because, I believe if I want to be professional in LDing, I should act like one. And I guess pros wouldn't think my LD was real LD. Would you count it as real LD if it occurred you ?


      Good morning/evening everybody .

      FryingMan! Ohh how I missed your replays and your avatar the resembles ultimate wisdom. *^^*
      Thank you everyone for the support, You never fail to lift my mood up. Your advices have been seriously put into account . About studying, I found out some odd things that I wish I discovered earlier. I think studying without telling anyone makes it somehow easier for me, as everyone get sarcastic when they know I will finally study. Plus, I think I made studying difficult for myself mentally by nagging about how hard it is to everyone. Stupid me.

      But hey! Look at the bright side. Now I have a new goal for my next LD. I will ask my unconscious why the duck I can't study . He better have really good explanation or I will beat the living poop out of him.

      After my dramatic crying for help in the last reply, I had my 13th lucid dream! I was in some kind of mall filled with people with different super powers. [Before sleeping I watched few scenes of X-Men on TV, guess that triggered the dream scene .] I had the ability to fly but for some reason I lost it and I was trying to fly with no success, So I went to the second floor, planning to jump to the ground floor, hoping to fly in mid air.

      I was scared but excited. I think those feelings triggered my lucidity, which made me even more excited. I was like (OMG I'll finally fly in a dream!). I jumped, only to fall slowly like a stupid tree leaf. Upon landing softly on my back, I stayed down there idiotically watching the malls ceiling, calm and happy that I'm in lucid dream. My lucidity from that point was slowly fading, until the dream scene shifted and I lost all lucidity.

      I've noticed something that I hope to god that it's not true . Have you ever noticed I get lucid dreams more often when I'm not happy? By not happy I mean tired, sad, annoyed, etc. Just like this LD that occurred In the night of 24-Aug (When I was panicking about studying), or like in LDs of 11,12-Aug when I had long days. I hope I'm wrong.
      Forgive me my precious workbook, as this week is final exams week, and my LIFE depends on it. I might not be fully able to reply as frequent as before, but I will keep checking my workbook for replies.

      Tonight is the night for my 14th lucid dream.

      No worries, focus on your finals and I will wait to make a real response until you let me know that you are done with finals. But real quickly, don't worry, you can definitely have many LD's without being tired, sad, etc… And Congrats on another LD!!

      "Take care of your life" is good advice to everybody, in particular to lucid dreamers! So go take those tests, but try to still have mindful and reflective moments at times.

      As for WILDs, the main property that defines a WILD is not its clarity or haziness, but the aware/conscious observation of the dream forming and the conscious experience of entering the dream state. Some dreams are bright and clear, some are more hazy. DILD/WILD has little or no relevancy to clarity IMO. Lucid is lucid, though, I wouldn't worry overly much about classification, or "what kind of *ILD was it?"

      Greetings my fellows ^.^
      Why do I always miss talking to you even though most of what I share are failures . Maybe because I don't talk much IWL? I don't know.. But I miss you .
      So, guess what? I screwed up in the finals. I studied well, Its just.. something happened that has never did before in any exam. Upon receiving the paper, and realizing that the questions isn't really that hard, I panicked. I just kept staring at the paper, brain stopped working, forgot most formulas, thoughts of failure kept spinning around my head, until I was informed that the remaining time was 10 minutes. I screwed up so bad, that best case scenario is that I get 30/100. People, if you have an exam, sleep well before it, and do NOT panic.

      About dreaming. Well, exams gave me the worst moods and mental conditions. I was so frustrated, mad, sad, you name it. So my dreams followed the same theme. Most of the nights I had minimum recall. I can remember one dream where I was bullied by gunman, it wasn't pleasant . But hey! I had a dream where I did a RC! It failed though . I was in a dark room with my newest dream sign, a kid . We were in his house heading to the front door because we were going to some amusement park (yay!). The darkroom, being a dream sign for me, raised my awareness enough to do an RC. But not enough to realize I was dreaming.

      Noting else to add. I'm mentally OK now guys don't worry . I don't know what to say to my mom, I didn't tell her anything about the exam yet. May god make my death fast and non painful.

      Tonight is the night for my 14th Lucid dream.

      Great advice! Sleep is important in so many ways. Meditation or just taking several deep breaths can be good for not panicking. On the bright side, it will be easier to do better next time and maybe that will take the pressure off of you.

      Hi all

      Man am I having trouble in sleeping. Since I was done from exams until now, all my sleeps were 4 - 5 hours long only. I go to bed at 10pm sleepy as heck only to wake up at 2am for no reason at all. And I stay up until next night. See that's exactly why I hate exams! Not only it mess up my future, it mess me up mentally for like two weeks. Ohh well.. I get more time to play PS4 .

      Enough drama, let's get to dreaming. I was really hoping that my next reply is me telling a lucid dream, but it's hard to perform WBTB or repeating (and believing) mantras. But guess what? I recall a dream where I was kidnapped by gunmen and at the end of the dream I realized I was dreaming! So I guess I'm still in business . I recall one dream per night regularly because I stopped writing my dreams down because I'm stupid and I get very lazy upon waking. I will try to go back to it as soon as possible. I have a small plan to do and I want your opinion on it please .
      I can feel my awareness raising like never before. I'm starting to imagine myself as an undercover cop and I look at everyone and everything like if they are intending to hurt me (Me and my kid-y thoughts ). And please don't get me wrong, I'm not paranoid or believing that some one is stalking me, but with this imagination I can notice things people don't notice. And I ask myself things like: (Why does that guy has a pen for style but not a watch? Why does that guy keep looking everywhere, is he lost? What kind of phone is she using?) and every time I come across something odd, I do a RC.

      My plan, my friends ^^, is to increase the number of my dream signs. As my awareness is at it's peak right now, I hope my frequent RC's will induce a LD shortly . My current dream signs are: strong emotion, action and violence, dim and bright lights, and my newest one.. Kids .
      Good plan ? Any suggestions for DSs? Should I do alternative thing? Am I indeed stupid? let me know. Luv yall <3

      Tonight is the night for my 14th Lucid dream ^^~
