I have discovered that saying outloud or internally of what the colors are doing helps me concentrate and also improve the intensity of the colors a little bit. I still have little to no control of the colors. How exactly do you control them? All I can do is visualize with my minds eye but as far as the actual colors I see, I have little to no idea how to manipulate them. Although i do manage to pull small feats like making a letter or number appear. Will definitely keep on practicing

      Edit: By the way. You say you can make all basic shapes? That is pretty awesome! I definitely look forward to that. But can you also visualize in great detail a natural object like an apple? I hear some can take this a step further and actually interact with their visual stimuli as if it were real like 'eat' an imaginary apple and taste it.

      I just tried to see an apple. I nly spent a minute at it. I could form a red sphere and then dent the top of it and have a little line come out of the dent, but it was kind of a shabby representaion of an apple. In an LD, using the same skill wouldhave materialized a perfect apple, but the true waking visual was kind of abstract. Iassume we get good at images we practice. I can whip out two crossed triangles of differnt colors in a couple seconds, but I have practiced that. Even though the image you get while doing this awake, is a bit less than vivid, the skill will be extreamly powerful in deep meditation or an actual dream.

      To work with colors, you should observe which color appears to you most often, and work on just that color until you can make it increase and fill a portion of what you see. Then move to one more color.. When you can do two colors work on going back and forth. You actually must learn how to do each individual color. Think of it like tones in music, you train your mind to recognise the tones. In this case each color must be studied, until your brain gets it. So, do not try to switch colors; work on one until you get it, then add one more.

      Starting over. I have been lazy during the past few months with school and all that but it is over now. I graduated. So now I have more time to do this. Although this is not a good excuse because I could've found the time to do so. I think it is best I simply start with the basics again and work my way up.

      Update: I don't know if this is a result of the meditation or not but recalling what some dc's say is a bit easier than before. Usually I could remember a word of phrase, now I remember some more important sentences. Or this could be the result of my attempt to get better recall, or both.
