      "Most" and "cheap"

      I was talking about it is better to have luck in the beginning

      suppose your first 10 lucid dreams were all possible ways to trigger
      like Text RC
      clock RC
      Impossible Event
      Notice Superpower
      etc.

      and the result of each one was you saying inside your dream "I'm dreaming" and then instantly waking up
      you might figure you have great triggering skill
      but with bad luck like that (instantly waking up every time) you'd give up

      By good luck I mean getting lucky in your lucid dreams, like one of your first ones lasting 10 minutes or something

      at the beginning it is better to be lucky then good

      and by cheap I didn't mean free, I just spent 10 bucks on 5HTP
      and 20 bucks on Melatonin

      oh and btw I am immune to headaches

      why don't you use a vibrating alarm, instead of audible one every minute? I plan to buy a vibrating watch and wear it on my leg set for every 5 minutes then wear it there for like 4 days (days only) to get used to it until I hardly notice it, but reality check or at least say in my mind something dream related. Then begin wearing it only in bed still set to go off every 5 minutes and see If I can a) fall asleep b) stay asleep c) notice anything in dream d) trigger and if I can then e) use it to determine dream time. So if it went off and then I was still lucid the second time it went off and then woke up a bit latter and looked at time and it was 2 minutes until it went off again I would know I had been lucid for 8 minutes and such

      of course most of my LD are crap because they come at the end of cycles, but some are good, I was lucky to have dreams I could learn from early. With the watch I would have a chance to trigger early and then I would have longer better lucids
      I learned tons from non lucid dreams too of course like one where I was trying to hide in the dark by turning off the light, unscrewing light when it came back on, what I was learning was to believe that it was possible to survive the void, because even after I unscrewed it, eventually someone came by with a light and sight returned, when I woke up I realized that dreams don't like darkness, and won't allow infinite void. This led to my first epic lucid dream where I was doing awesome, and then survived the void then did even more awesome
      Sure LUCID DREAMS are all fun and games until someone loses a third eye.

      Haha. I actually did not mean that as a response to your post about luck! Lol. I forgot that you had said this. :3

      I spend zero money on LDing, especially since I think that most of those supplements are not helping much.

      LDs don't come from crazy things happening in your dreams, it comes from your state awareness and general awareness being high. Crazy things always happen in dreams, but if you don't have recall, you won't remember it, and if you aren't aware of the states, you won't know what it is you are looking for with all the awareness.

      As zoth said in a recent thread:
      http://www.dreamviews.com/general-lu...ml#post2140198
      It is almost impossible to pinpoint exactly what mechanism got you lucid.

      Just because text RC is the one that you used it doesn't mean that you "got lucid because you used a text RC" odds are that you became lucid and did the text RC to double check.

      My previous phone couldn't do a silent alarm. I can do one know though. I don't know if it was the sound making me have a headache.

      The lucids start coming earlier and earlier in your dreams the more and more aware you get (Of both kinds). Keep working hard and get some more experience under your belt!

      Also, I had no luck in the beginning. I had zero LDs for my first month and a half. it is better to work hard and depend on yourself rather than wait around for luck to swing your way.

      My previous phone couldn't do a silent alarm. I can do one know though. I don't know if it was the sound making me have a headache.
      With high Melatonin I actually begin to have full blown hallucinations even while knowing I am awake
      I had many tonight some were of dream like quality and had plots and everything (but I didn't notice any sound, only the white noise I am listening too (rain))
      I never have anything like this without the Melatonin, just like maybe flashing light or shapes in the darkness

      One of the hallucinations was so sharp and a bit disturbing a landscape of fire and such that I opened my eyes to get rid of it and let a different one come.

      When ever I am at this point I almost always have a lucid so it gives me vividness and also triggering
      B6 does help with recall but so does knowing you just woke up
      and taking the Melatonin at high dose, makes my eyes flash like mad upon dream exit

      before the supplements I Lucid 1/mo or so first 3 months
      once began melatonin more like 2/week (only on weekends tho)

      I have never triggered off of text myself, and only once off of a clock (just the other day tho), in that one it wasn't stable, and I convinced myself that if I stopped rubbing my hands I would lose the dreamscape, I rubbed and rubbed the whole time, whilst attempting to escape staircases that were earth bending into like hamster wheels, Finally when I thought I was stable I tried to do a behind my back DC summon (the goal I had chosen (my mind was remarkably clear) and them moment my hands parted the world was lost he he

      I trigger off various things, but impossible events are a trigger for some.

      my dream recall is often good enough (with some prompting) to recall 4 to 5 different segments of dreams and yes I then remember the crazy transitions, I was just on a bus, and then on a couch for instance woke up eyes flashing had to recall the segments

      The watch I want to get is specifically designed to help kids and old people remember things, it is a reminder watch
      I saw a several years old thread on here by people who used one (older version) for one it wasn't strong enough, the other it woke them)

      This cycle will be my last chance this morning to see what 80Mg melatonin (w/80Mg B6 built in) and 75Mg of DHEA over the last four and a half hours (preceeded by 200mg of 5HTP) can do. about 12 dream segments so far but no lucids off I go

      I like the addition of a summary at the end of the last podcast. On creativity, I am convinced it can be trained and that lucid dreaming helps improve it.

      There is a great 3 part series that aired on Science Channel called Hack My Brain (full episodes on YouTube also) where the guy shows great improvements in creativity among other things. Interview regarding:

      The Finale!

      The Last?


      I actually have two things I want to announce!

      ONE!
      I actually have one more podcast. It is different than the rest since I am not gonna be giving you any ideas on how to LD.

      TWO!!!!
      I am starting up a new group of podcasts. I will still answer questions in podcast form if anyone asks, I just don't think I can keep popping them out like this. The topics I picked were pretty broad. In order to get some more detail I need questions. The new podcast will be in a different thread, but it will be ongoing and take a better place of my DJ. It is a DJ/type learning ordeal that should be really fun.


      Ok, so this last song is a bit overboard! Enjoy the album. It is one of my favorite CDs. I recommend spending a 30 minute meditating session, listening to this and thinking of the words.

      This is great news! I'm happy to hear that you will be doing more podcasts. I have those last two in my "bank."

      That broken bride album is quite interesting and some good rock riffs that I quite enjoyed. I wonder where the writer came up with that story! I listened to it while I was doing some other stuff and then did close my eyes and kind of meditated for the final eight minutes or so. I may have never heard that if you hadn't posted it!

      Hi guys! I know I've fallen a bit off the wagon, but got stuff going on in "real life" and I'm spending *very* little time online lately.
      Anyways, I've listened to all episodes so far (well, at least all the "lesson" episodes, and maybe only half of the DJs) and I keep learning a lot, so thank you very much Sensei for all your time and effort. I'm looking forward for the grand finale, and to the new format as well, I'll see if I can come up with some good questions.

      EDIT: This is what I've downloaded so far, just in case it helps someone. I've fudged the last two podcasts' days.

      Yay! I started listening to it but then I remembered how much pre-bed inspiration I get from listening to these right before going to bed, so I am saving the rest of it. Thank you Sensei! Everyone should check these out!

      I think a lot of members don't know about this great section of the site! Maybe put a link in your signature and I will continue to point people this way when I see a connection…if I can get on here more often. Just been super busy. Thank you again Sensei!

      Hiya

      It'd be interesting to hear how your own lucid dream experience developed if you ever wanted to talk about that. How long it took you to get lucid, then getting lucid regularly, stabalising, fun experiements etc. I know you share some of your experiences in your talks. I'd just be curious how long it it took you to become proficient and what were fetures of this progression...I know everyones path is different but be interesting none the less

      I'll link to it if I can find it, if not, then I will make an audio about it. Thanks for the suggestion.

      @fogelbise
      I'll put a link in for the audio forum. It doesn't help much though if I don't post very much.

      Here is a thread for beginners, I put it in a new thread because I am planning on redirecting a lot of beginners to it. Let me know what you think there or here.

      You mentioned The inheritence cycle and the magic in it. A friend recommended me to read Eragon but I am currently reading Legends of the Dragonrealm (I'm at the fifth book) and it is full of magic. It's good that you mentioned it because I could probably use things from the book to use magic.

      Yes. Really interesting magic system in it. I am waiting to develop a set magic system until I create a dream world. Then everyone will have to use that system. As it stands, zodra is an "anything goes system. So I am not quite able to have decent battles unless I nurf myself.

      Interesting idea but no I don't believe that's the case at least for me. The fact that people have dissociative disorders though like you describe naturally though just goes show how different each persons brain and perception can be. I think it's as simple as being in a state of
      Consciousness that you aren't normally in not share with anyone else so knowing what the rules are is and what's possible nobody knows. Of course there are certain things that most people seem to experience in similar ways, but the potential of
      that state of consciousness is unknown.
