      Red face NickSeagull's Workbook 🕊🕊🕊

      Hello everyone!

      Some of you might know me from the IRC. I'm Nick and I've been an oneironaut for a while.
      Through my journeys in the realm of dreams I have accomplished some stuff that I think it is cool:
      • Float around
      • Open portals
      • Cast magic
      • Summon a deceased relative
      • Meet my dream guide
      • Teleport myself into space


      I don't consider myself an expert, not even an intermediate, in fact I'm really a newbie with lots of theory-reading
      and not that much practical applications.

      I've had quite some lucid dreams using these different techniques, in order of success:
      1. DILD
      2. SSILD
      3. MILD
      4. DEILD (Although some might argue that this is a WILD)
      5. Once accomplished a WILD


      When I started, I started using CAT, but after two weeks of getting really tired, I dropped it.

      During the day, I try to be mindful of my daily life, being aware passively of as much as I can, although I use critical thinking and sense expansion as my reality checks.

      In fact, I've joined the academy last year, but I'm remaking this thread because of the same thing that I'm not progressing that much:
      After a while I tend to drop off the lucid way. It's sad because it makes me appreciate my waking life much more . This happens because of overwhelming due to work and studies, but also due to the fact that not many people in my surroundings take lucid dreaming seriously (a friend of mine just started his journey, let's see if I can hook him up ).

      As I stated before, most of my lucid dreams are DILDs. But I don't know why I lost a lot of dream recall. Three or four months after I just started I used to recall 4 to 6 dreams per night. Although they were more fragments than anything I think it was really nice.

      Nowadays I can barely remember my dreams, and when I wake up I can just remember if I had a lucid dream or not, and I only remember the moment I got lucid.

      I'm joining the academy to see if I can improve, and also, because I miss my DreamViews family

      Time to work!

      Waking up every day with a beam of the moonlight in my eye
      Stimulate my consciousness with the focus of my mind
      I've got to take myself back to the feeling of eternally breaking free
      Knowing that my body's motionless and still asleep

      Welcome back!

      Whenever you start to get busy, try to keep one favorite practice going at least. Ideally it will be one that also enhances your waking life, like one of the benefits of lucid dreaming that you mentioned.

      Recall: besides all of great the recall tips you will find here on DV I wanted to add: if you consistently aren't getting anything or much of anything by lying still, then go ahead and start getting up fairly quickly and immediately start writing whatever you can (fragments or vague feelings, anything you can) - sometimes that gets the flow going better than lying still - depends on the person. I also recommend to keep what you write positive. For example: recording "reaching for more recall" rather than "I can't remember." The later statement may have a negative effect on recall.

      I love SSILD and I used it before almost all of my LDs during my first couple of years of practice. I still use it, but I mix in MILD more often now. Let me know if you have any questions.

      I would say posting here a number of times a week, but no less than once a week. Anything less and you tend to forget to post. Post what practices you are trying and what day and night habits that you have. This serves both for you to look back and see what was working and what wasn't, but also so you can get feedback from myself and anyone else who offers input. This can also keep you on a long term path to continually learn and improve. This is definitely a enjoyable, fulfilling long-term journey. Does that make sense? Let me know if anything is not clear.

      Makes a lot of sense! Thanks!

      Well, these days I'm trying to be much more possitive with my recall, but one thing that I noticed that it is off comparing to what I was doing when I started was to have a sleep schedule, I'm thinking about*start with one.

      The problem that I got, is that I'm really passionate about programming, and lately before going to sleep I get lots of inspiration and ideas and I tend to stay awake until 1-2AM (like right now :c ). I thought about getting a notebook where to write all my ideas or worries by night and continuing them by next day. I think that makes sense.

      These last 2 nights I wasn't able to recall anything, but still... I'm reaching for more recall

      Yes, that is a good idea. I use the same strategy when necessary. It allows you to go to sleep knowing that you won't lose the information that you are worried about losing or forgetting about.
