      Thanks
      been doing well at writing lots of shorter notes on dreams at intervals in the night, which feels like building that bridge. Would like to find good ways to work with journal during day as I tend to just scribe the dreams for the sake of recall and mostly leave the journal until the next night when I reread dreams, and write the intent for the night ahead...When i was more active with it I would at times underline dream signs and write them on the other page. At times I would try various dream interpretive methods but never found much sense with this. It would seem good to make better use of the journal and of what has been recalled. Also so that its not lucid or nothing...
      Ive been better at RCng during day and building good motivation and intent again. Also some awareness of HH on way to sleep which I like as a time to plant intent. Challenge of holding the balance of not waking self up with too much consciousness and yet bringing a bit of consciousness into what can feel like a quick plumet towards forgetfulness and unconsciousness...
      Carrying postive expectations :-)

      It sounds like you are on a good track and thinking about other things you could revisit. I only recommend adding more to your practices when it feels right since you don't want to overload yourself, which can lead to stopping practices altogether for a lot of people.

      I definitely agree that HH stage is a great time to plant intent for those of us who can do it and continue the journey to sleep.

      Sorry for the slow response. I've been on another trip.

      Still doing well on writing v short notes during the night which feels v useful for having a good sense of the night. Mostly Im happy with having developed a stable sense of motivation again with dreaming, regardless of outcome.
      Had nice moment in sleep last night...some HH, I tried to see if I could influence it, and imagined a horse which I got onto and continued into a nice non lucid
      v cool non lucid later...making a to do list, which included dream yoga and things towards enlightenment, asked myself when I will do these things and had a clear sense of now...enlightenment can only ever happen now as that is all there is. Then nice awareness of that timeless dimension. Good start to the day :-)
      I know what you mean with overloading and the tasks have to actually meet with an an equal dose of genuine enthusiasm for them or else it can feel laborious and not nourishing anymore. Im quite happy with how dreaming is at moment and the trajectory I feel that it is on. None the less I hope sometime to make what may be, better use of my dream journal...either as a tool for fostering more lucidity or as another way of enriching or guiding waking life...
      will keep posting some updates ...

      Very good! By the way, that dream about dream yoga and enlightenment sounded interesting and insightful. Looking forward to hearing more.

      Still ticking along. Had a couple of short not very noteworthy lucids but had a lovely night of practice last thur. Reminded me how much fun dream practice can be. Did a nice wbtb meeting up with a friend for walk under lovely starry sky. V slow back to sleep but hitting nice peaceful zones then had that gorgeous prewild energy space, then able to move my dream arms up through my body (Before I could move rest of dream body) and do some Qi Gong. Lovely strong energy sensations and sense of connection through my heart, to that which I could perceive as being the outside of me...Then. a nice lucid, not overly remarkable but still, moments where it became increasingly solid, started into but avoided the sex distraction and went for dream goal of trying to enter a friends dream and trying to find the message he has left for me in a box (in the waking world). Didn't succed but some nice transitions and interactions with DC's. Later in night lovely diping in and out (nonlucidly) into dreams. V nourishing stuff...Hope I find my way back to regular lucid access cause it can be such fun and a unique insight practice...

      Congratulations on the lucids! I enjoyed reading the experience you had. Nourishing stuff indeed!

      I also envy your wbtb's with a friend under the starry sky. I love the stars, meteorites and have had some lucids triggered by seeing unusual things happening with stars.
