      DreamViews Podcast Q&A Episode 3: Time Dilation, Stabilization, Common Lucid Dreaming Mistakes

      Q&A Episode 3: Time Dilation, Stabilization, Common Lucid Dreaming Mistakes

      This is the third episode of our "Q&A" podcast format where OpheliaBlue, RareCola, Paigeyemps and I answer your listener-submitted questions. (RareCola and Paigeyemps weren't able to join us for this one.)

      In this episode we tackle questions on time dilation, dream stabilization, and common lucid dreaming mistakes.

      And OpheliaBlue treats our listeners to part of the Marvin Gaye classic Let's Get It On. Really.

      Mentioned Links
      Here are a few of the links that we mentioned on the podcast.

      http://www.dreamviews.com/dream-cont...cid-dream.html - First, the amazing thread on time dilation where Alyzarin, Sageous, and several others have a dynamite discussion on how time dilation might work:

      http://www.dreamviews.com/general-lu...eams-time.html - Another recent thread that Ophelia mentioned with some good discussion. I haven't read this one as thoroughly as the first, but it has some good stuff in it too:

      https://www.facebook.com/dreamviewspodcast - And our new DreamViews podcast Facebook page! Thanks to Xanous for this one. Throw us a like on there to get updates when we post a new podcast.

      ahhhHHHHH!!! The DARE

      Hey what were those links? One was from flowofmysoul, I'll find that in a bit. The other one was the Sageous/Alyzarin one you found I think?

      Awesome podcast, thanks as always CL for putting these together and making them entertaining AND pro <3

      Heh heh heh... did you really think that I could turn my back on the dreaded triple dog dare?

      Ooh, thanks for the reminder about the links! I've posted them above. I've got the two time dilation threads, plus a link to the Facebook page.

      And thank you for your excellent work on this episode (as usual!) This one was a lot of fun to record!

      Just listened to it, that was a another really good episode! It was very informative and as usual you guys made me laugh a lot!

      I've experienced time dilation in non-lucid dreams before, I had one once that felt like it lasted a few days.

      When OpheliaBlue was talking about being afraid of losing her glasses down the hole to hell, it reminded me of a lucid I got from an FA. I "woke up" in the dream and knew I was dreaming, I noticed there was a glass of water on my nightstand.

      I picked it up to drink it, partly because my mouth tasted kind of gross and partly because I thought that drinking it might anchor me in the dream better since i'd be essentially drinking a part of the dream.

      When I went to drink it I thought "wait, what if there's dust in it? I don't know how long it's been sitting here" I then realized and thought "Well it's a dream, even if it's dirty it doesn't really matter"

      It's funny how even though you know it's a dream, you sometimes think about things irrationally.

      Thanks, Mismagius, I'm glad that you enjoyed this one! Yeah, your and Ophelia's stories are a great illustration of how much effort it can take to break out of our "auto-pilot" on some things, even after we become lucid. I still have strong urges to explain myself to DCs when I behave strangely. It's like, No no, I'm not crazy. Don't worry. You're all just creations of my dreaming mind, so don't fret about anything you are about to see. Situation normal.

      Did you manage to let go of this thought about dust well enough that the water didn't taste completely gross and dusty?

      That's awesome, Kactus!! I love hearing that! I'll be sure to check it out if you decide to write it up in your journal.

      Congratulations on the LD!

      Thanks, Boss! My LD-envy was bound to come out one of these days.

      I think this is also my subconscious' way of delivering belated congratulations to you on your recent contest win! I was telling NyxCC the other day that this is probably the last time they're going to let you two team up.

      Excellent show. I prefer the long episodes to the shorter one. I find myself listening to the show before whilst I have retired. You help hasten the sandmans arrival!

      It would be great if you could make the show consistent, but I understand you both have lives.

      As for a recommended topic, I have three:

      1. Flying; what methods do you use to fly?
      2. Running; experiencing that 'dream lag' when running and possible solutions to it
      3. Jumping; off buildings, off moving vehicals, the ground.... describe your jump in detail

      I am a natural lucid dreamer and have flown in easily over four score dreams. I find I can just float/blast/hover off the ground like superman, though I hear many people have different styles such as flapping arms or even using angel wings as someone on DV irc chat mentioned. Would love to hear your input on this.

      I like the longer as well because my amount of listening to audio is pretty much unlimited (40+ hours/week) and the more I listen to LDing, the more I can get day residue to be about LDing. Your LDs are more about what you think about rather than what you do throughout the day. In other words, you have more a chance of dreams about what you are listening to rather than what you are doing.

      Haha ^^ I've sort of done that with my DC family, I wanted to try shouting some dream commands but some of my DC family was in the room and I felt dumb shouting stuff, I decided to do it anyways though

      Yeah, the water tasted pretty normal and was actually good from what I recall

      Ah, that's awesome! Congratulations on the lucid!

      I listen to them sometimes when going to bed too, haven't had a LD from it yet though, at least I don't think I have. Haha, PILD: Podcast Induced Lucid Dream

      I agree with bedtimesleepy and BrandonBoss, listening to them is a great way to keep lucid dreaming on your mind. It also helps with keeping you motivated.

      Thank you for another great podcast!!! I had some anticipation for Ophelia's rendition of the Marvin Gaye classic...lol...Ophelia, in what little singing we heard, it does sound like you can sing...maybe there is a little encore in store...

      You two play off each other very well and it sounds like you are having fun. I hope so, because I have fun listening!

      Many thank yous, once again

      Thanks bedtimesleepy both for the kind words and the thoughts on long vs. short episodes. Whenever I'm planning these out I always feel like they're going to be about 15 minutes. I'm glad to hear that the longer episodes are actually what some folks prefer.

      Great question! We can definitely cover this one! And yeah, I'd love if we could be more consistent, too, but it can be such a challenge. Life (particularly life during back to school times) seems so hectic.

      Ha ha, nice... and good luck on your first PILD! I'd glad that these help with motivation. I love hearing that kind of stuff!

      Thanks, fogelbise! Hasn't Ophelia got a great singing (and speaking) voice?? I've tried convincing her to personally perform some intro music for the podcast, but no dice so far.

      And yeah, I really have a great time when we're recording... I rarely actually speak with anyone about lucid dreaming, so it's a blast to spend an evening geeking out about LD with her. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, this is great to hear.

      Yes, you both have great radio voices! I better not say anything more about Ophelia's nice voice or her husband might track me down and beat me up!

      ...Or maybe I should be more afraid of her!

      I haven't had the time to listen to this just yet, but do you have any idea of when it is coming out on iTunes? No rush, but I'm looking forward to hearing it all the same.

      Awesome show. I love hearing you guys talk about all this stuff. I was going to ask something similar to bedtimesleepy. I've never been able to properly fly like many have experienced I've managed to work up to glide and hover off the ground but cant propel myself off the ground for very long. More of a walking on the moon experience. Was wondering what I could do to break through to be able to achieve superman type or actual flight in dreams. And have you had any trouble achieving certain activities that most people are able to easily achieve and how did you overcome that? Like flight, traveling, controlling certain aspects of dreams.

      Hi Pickman! This hasn't been added to iTunes yet, and it's entirely my fault. I'll get the ball rolling on that.

      Thanks for the reminder!

And have you had any trouble achieving certain activities that most people are able to easily achieve and how did you overcome that? Like flight, traveling, controlling certain aspects of dreams.
      Thanks Cardcaptor! It's really nice to hear that you enjoyed it!

      You can count on it!
