      lemonDrops' Workbook

      Hey there!

      this class sounds very interesting, thanks Matte87!
      i have already completed the first dream control tasks and i'm holding my DJ up-to-date:
      Dreamviews Lucid Dreaming Community & Resource - lemonDrops - Dream Journals

      Here's a excerpt:
      I woke up in the same house, and started doing dreamplot things. I was in the kitchen when my sister asked for a candle she needed. At first, I denyied. The I remembered, I had gotten earlier one from mum which I don’t need. So I went up to my room and couldn't find it anywhere! I was sure I had placed it on my desk! I went down into the kitchen to tell her I couldn’t find it. But this couldn’t be a coincidence, I must be dreaming! I just laughed for a while, because this was really a dream. Went a little around and thought over what task I have set. I haven’t completed the second part in the last dream, so I said to my father: “Hey we are dreaming. Let’s count my fingers”. He counted 8, when i counted 6. He seemed a bit silly and didn't understand what i meant.


      And i'm sorry, i can't attend the chat session on thursday, i hope you will publish news.

      Welcome! That's okay, I'll write up your name tomorrow as soon as I'm finished in chat, and congrats on getting the task done! I know it's simple for now, but it's great for those who hasn't had LD's yet. You've got an entire week on you to complete the "Normal task" and "Advanced task" aswell

      Keep on dreaming!

      yeah i will focus more on dream recall, i've only recalled one dream the last days. And on weekends its even harder when im longer out.
      My next goal will be showing a DC that i can fly. I've only done it once, where the dream started already with me flying.

      Try to sleep for as long as possible the day after you've been out. If you've been drinking you might have REM rebound. Good luck!

      I will try tomorrow after coming home from drinking

      Today, i did WBTB after 5 hours of sleep and got lucid in the next dream. I tried stabilization by rubbing my hands and touching surroundings. But somehow it went very wrong. I lost the dream completely but didn't wake up and experienced how a new dream formed.
      Here's the DJ entry: Failed at stabilization / weird dreams - Dream Journals - Dreamviews Lucid Dreaming Community & Resource

      Maybe it's better to set a task where i have a specific goal and do stabilization as a sideway?

      Very nice on another lucid! My dreams never last if I don't have a task in mind or don't do anything else than just focusing on it being a dream. Try stabilizing next time but don't worry about the whole waking up thing. Just rub your hands casually and look at something intensly. Also that's a nice experience. You basicly did a DEILD, which will come in handy later on

      ok thanks matte! Today, i got no REM at all. 3 hours of sleep and drinking all night xD

      And tblanco: sorry i didn't know how to translate this. I meant, doing stabilization during my normal task. It's better when i don't concentrate that much on stabilization, because it makes me thinking of my sleeping body.

      Exactly lemon! And what a great chance for REM rebound tomorrow. No sleep AND alcohol consumption. I will also have some rebound, how about we both aim for lucidity? Try the advanced task out and fly a bit

      Funny, now I can't think of the word.

      Wait, I got it. "Afterthought"

      My recall is getting better again, and i have an ordered sleep rythm now. Tonight i was highly motivated LDing again, tried WBTB but didn't get lucid. But i recalled 2 normal dreams.
      Searching for my watch / Festival - Dream Journals - Dreamviews Lucid Dreaming Community & Resource

      For my next lucid, i will orientate on KingYoshis dreamstabilization techniques which he posted in his 2nd lesson. Sounds awsome, exactly what i need!

      Nice You can do it! Only one more day for the goal to be completed. Have you recalled 7 dreams this week? Also, KingYoshi is very experienced and I'm sure his technique will work wonders.

      Had a very long night, was very drunken and slept for about 3-4 hours. So no dreams up to this point.
      As it happened so often, i got tortured by some many thoughts and couldn't sleep againn.
      I've done it for so long but recently read about the free falling technique, so i just wanted to try it and watch some HI.
      http://www.dreamviews.com/f79/jeff77...hnique-116172/
      I let go all my thoughts. At some point i recognise whats going on! Sensations through my body, i was lifted a bit and i sunk back into bed! I didn't intend to WILD, but just did it! I opened my eyes and new i was already in-dream.

      Heres the DJ entry:
      Telekinesis - Dream Journals - Dreamviews Lucid Dreaming Community & Resource

      A short review: i learned that dreaming is such a natural thing, it occurs even under the worst circumstances. Dreams are suppressed by alcohol, but REM comes back later. Only my recall is suffering from this. When i felt really bad awake in my bed, i felt quite good in the dream. The first dream induced by WILD was very instable. I couldn't let go my phyical body enough. At some point i lost vision and just felt the chair under me. The feelings remained, but i opened my eyes for real! a bit strange. When i lost lucidity, the dream had time to settle and it was very vivid later when i got lucid again later.

      Sweet! Advanced task done. I also had alot to drink last night but I had a few dreams aswell as a short Lucid. Alcohol can actually be used to dream alot if you make sure you sleep for a very long time. In my case I slept for 11 hours. Will you go for the Normal task later on this week?

      I planned to WBTB in the night of Monday to Tuesday after 4.5 hours of sleep for about 20 minutes.
      Same plan tonight but after 6 hours

      Haha not all dreams can be special You should only do the WBTB if you have enough motivation and feel like it. I myself didn't do the WBTB at my planned hour because I was so damn tired. Good luck on Monday!

      Some dreams recalled. Nothing special.
      I wanted to make an afternoon wild, forced myself to fall asleep very fast by making my breathing deeper and leting my mind wander. I can't remember if i heard my alarm but it was set for 50 minutes and i woke up after 1h 15min. Do you have any experiences with afternoon naps? I can't recall anything at all when taking a nap.
      looking forward to tonight for WBTB

      Ah, I've had a FA once during a nap, aswell as some SP feelings and hypnagogic imagery, but I really dislike naps because I get disoriented and my stomach gets upset when I wake up. I also never recall anything when I do take them. Good luck once again on the WBTB

      Did WBTB tonight, but i had a hard time getting out of bed. I did RCs, repeated Mantras, visualízed how i will get lucid, visualized telekinesis for 20 minutes. My recall today is very bad, and i think i didn't get lucid. I can't read half of the fragments i have noted.
      I think i'm having a dry spell, i know i should stay positive. But it's hard. This and the next week will be stressful because school is ending.
