      Hashmash's Workbook

      Hello my friends

      I thought I would participate in this class. Matte87 always has something helpful to say when i'm checking out new threads and I need as much practice with lucid dreaming as I can get, so I figured even though its a little late I would make a workbook. I'll try my best to keep up with these tasks...

      I tried to wild twice this morning and have been trying every night for the past couple days. I'm going to keep this up until I have a couple and get a feel for them, then I will relax my WILD practice a bit. I also reality check and practice ADA throughout the day to encourage DILD. I also WBTB every night. It's gotten to the point where I wake up naturally around 5 hours(although sometimes much earlier) after bed and then every thirty minutes to an hour after that. I usually try to WILD or MILD at these times but still have had limited success.

      Tonight I will meditate on a lucid mantra a bit before bed. When I wake up the first time, if I don't have anything interesting to write in my dj I will not worry about it and try to go straight into a WILD without moving or opening my eyes. If I have a badass dream I will write it down and get up and stretch a bit. I will probably make some tea and read a bit before trying a MILD. Anytime I wake up after the first time I think I will just try to MILD. It's still early in the day so I may change my mind on exactly how I'm going to do things tonight but I'm pretty sure it will be something like that

      Welcome! It's never too late to join, and thanks for the kind words If you feel like it, go ahead and do the earlier tasks, or just start with current weeks tasks. I'll give you a * for the WILD task done right away.

      How often do you succeed in your WBTB attempts? Keep on dreaming!

      Not very often. Last month I had two lucid dreams and two the month before with WBTB. I started practicing WBTBs for my recall initially. I've only recently begun trying WILDs and MILDs during WBTB. I have a feeling it will bring me success soon I just gotta figure out whats right for me, like how long to stay up and what to do while awake etc...

      For now my priority is to fly so thats the main task I will focus on at the moment, I will try my best to remember to stabilize the dream as well though

      Ah okay. What I've done with the WBTB technique, is that I've made it into something "special". By doing this, and believing in it fully, I increase my chances of getting Lucid. The technique itself is great, but add a bit of placebo effect because you believe in it so much (and as we all know, belief is key) and you have an even greater technique. I don't WBTB properly more than once a week tops, and I usually succeed when I do them.

      Flying is awesome, so that's a good goal to strive for Good luck!

      June 6

      Well I went to bed around midnight and woke up several times throughout the night. The first couple times I didnt remember anything. One of these times I didn't move at all and kept my eyes closed and tried going straight into a WILD. Trying just made me wake up more and more though and I eventually gave up and just let myself fall back to sleep. When I next woke up i remembered some dreams and wrote them down. I got up and fed my dog and then went back to bed chanting a reality check mantra. I couldn't sleep though and was awake for a few hours before finally dozing off. My last dream of the morning had the potential for me to question my reality because my sense of time got messed up.

      Heres what happened (Earlier in the dream i had looked at a clock and saw it was 12 and i thought it meant at night. I even rem thinking in bed i wonder how my dream recall will be on vacation. When i get back to the room sara is sitting on the bed and i can see light outside so i find out its actually noon. I readjust to not going back to sleep but instead getting up for the day and i even rem my dreams from this morning thinking oh yeah ive already dreamt this morning, in the dream.) and here is the full dj from last night June 6 Non Lucids - Dream Journals - Dreamviews Lucid Dreaming Community & Resource

      Perhaps I am using the WBTB a bit much but like I said I initially started practicing it for recall and now it just happens naturally. But perhaps I could make the proper WBTB a little more special like you said, only actually getting up and out of bed maybe once or twice a week and through the rest of the week just use it for recall. Thanks for the advice

      Ah, good try on the WILD again. Your recall seems to be rather good, so yeah that sounds like a good idea Get out of bed and do something to activate your brain. I myself have to eat some breakfast while thinking of Lucid Dreaming and what I will do. Get excited!

      June 7

      That is interesting huh tblanco, I was actually in austin last week visiting my aunt. It is getting hot here in texas... btw i checked out your workbook, thanks for the welcome

      Had very limited recall all night and most of the morning. Woke up after 4 hours of sleep with no mem and again another two hours later with no mem. Once again i had a pretty difficult time getting back to sleep after this and was just lying there for about two hours. I finally dozed off though and was happy to remember a pretty long dream although not lucid.Back in Soccer - Dream Journals - Dreamviews Lucid Dreaming Community & Resource

      The guy da in my dream is actually a good dreamsign as irl he really hates me but in a lot of my dreams its almost like we are friends or can at least tolerate each other

      Long dreams are a blast Were you doing mantras or something similar which kept you awake or were you just having a hard time falling back asleep? Might have slept for a bit too long if you're not used to sleep for that long.

      *Message to everyone* Everyone is doing great, I love your enthusiasm guys and even though we're a small group, I'd rather have it small and personal than big and too messy

      I read all your entries each day you post them, and to keep it a bit more simple for me (and yourselves and other readers) I want you to put in a few spaces here and there. A long text can get a bit hard to read if there's no spaces. Another thing you might want to do is to separate your text with either colours or bold for when you're lucid, not lucid and when making comments. This is ofcourse entirely optional and is just a tip to make the DJ entries better.

      Join chat on Thursday at 20.00 GMT+2 if you can. New tasks and some random talk Keep on dreaming guys and keep up the good work!

      I was actually doing a mantra at first. I think it may be a combination of both the mantra and maybe sleeping a bit too long. I think it would also help if I was a bit more active throughout the day and didn't have so much energy.

      I was actually considering spacing that last entry out a bit, ill be sure to do that in the future.

      Hopefully I can get a nice flight in before the next tasks. Im sure I will

      Yeah if you don't use that energy, it'll keep you awake. I work as a construction worker and I have very regular sleeping hours. I fall asleep within minutes every night. Physical activity is priceless.

      Good and good I believe in you!

      June 8

      Well I woke up twice throughout the night and both times I couldn't really grasp what I had been dreaming about, I probably should've tried a little harder but wasn't too worried about it. When I woke up last I remembered a short flash that isn't really worth journaling.(Im in the house by the backdoor and for some reason I begin peeing in a bucket in the middle of the floor. I know there are people in the house so I keep looking around to make sure I have some privacy when I see my brothers friend come through the front door. I turn my back to him and dont rem past this) So yeah a bit short and insignificant, it is interesting though this is the first time i rem a dream where i use the restroom.... Not too worried about it though as whenever I have bad recall one night, the next night I usually rem several detailed dreams

      I was having trouble getting back to sleep again so I took a quick shower and tried to relax a bit but as relaxed as i was i still couldn't get back to sleep. Hopefully I'll be tired enough later today to take a nap and practice either a WILD or MILD. If not I plan to do a proper WBTB tonight. I know a lucid is just around the corner I can feel it

      Yeah when you sleep too little, you get REM rebound the day after. Also, I have dreams in which I do either number one or two, but it never happens in real life haha. Happy dreaming tonight

      I feel like i've gone back in time or something Tried recovering my entries but i couldnt find them with google, it just said i had no entries for that day or something. No worries though, got some more regular dreams today. My goal is to at least check my pockets before thursday, but also to fly and try a summon out.

      Your recall is improving alot! Very nice man I like the ass wiping part haha. See if you can get Lucid tonight and summon a DC. I intend to aswell as tblanco. Let's make it a little challenge! Don't forget to visualize and tell yourself you will get Lucid. Everytime you wake up you do that or try to WILD. Good lucK!

      Lol yeah that was a strange dream flash. The summon idea sounds good to me, it will be interesting to see how we all do.

      Had a short dream induced lucid dream last night during my first rem cycle. Unfortunately i didnt remember to do either task, instead i tried manifesting some lighting and flying. That didnt quite work out either. I did get a good laugh in the dream and enjoyed what little scenery i took in, im really just excited to have broken my dry spell. Hopefully I'll have better luck with this weeks tasks. After that lucid dream i feel like i could go lucid so easily so hopefully i will continue to have them

      Haha that was a cool dream. I know the feeling of having a power fail you. You'll be able to do it one day man, I managed to control fire using a lighter. Instead of summoning a fireball in my hand just like that, I put a small flame there first. Worked like a charm! Must have watched X-men too much

      Thats a good idea man, i'll have to keep that in mind next time. I was just a little too excited in this dream as well. Will have to stabilize better next time. I shouldve started eating plants as i was in a park

      Eating plants is the shit! Sometimes we remember our dream goals, sometimes we don't. I didn't until my third LD in a row. You can increase the chances of you remembering them by connecting you being Lucid with doing them. "Lucid, ok now what? Goals!" Kinda like that.
