      mmoritz80's workbook

      Good morning everyone! I'm starting the class a little later than everyone but hope to use your experiences to help me through the process.

      I hope you all had a great night in Dreamspace.

      Week 1-2

      • Recall dreams or fragments 10 days out of 14. 4 nights should include atleast 2 dreams each.
      • Activate 3 senses. Interact with the enviroment.
      • Wreak havoc on the enviroment, no powers allowed.


      Night 1 - one short dream fragment. I kept waking up but could hardly remember more than small fragments. By morning I had just one fragment that I could remember.

      Good morning and welcome to the class mmoritz89

      I'm sure you'll fit right in and good luck with all the tasks.

      The activate 3 senses one is interesting, its amazing how realistic dreams can be, especially when lucid.
      Can't wait to read about you smashing up your environment

      Welcome moritz! You picked the right class to work on ld skills If you can, be sure to write down those fragments throughout the night so you dont forget some when you wake up for good. Good luck and have fun exploring the dreamworld!

      Talking Thanks!

      Thank you all for the welcome!

      As far as an introduction goes, I had my first lucid dream a little over a month ago. It was a very exhilarating experience. I'm hoping to have many more and to get better at keeping lucidity going for longer periods of time.

      I found this site while researching lucid dreaming online. After having my first lucid dream, I was very interested in the topic. I also read Stephen LaBerge's Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming and Robert Waggoner's Gateway to the Inner Self.

      I wrote down some things about my dream last night and was suprised at how much more I could remember to fill in the gaps this morning.

      The big goals I have are:
      • Tapping into my creativity through lucid dreaming for short stories and game design projects.
      • Finding some wisdom and answers to life's challenges from my subconscious
      • Enjoying my time Lucid dreaming and having some fun!


      Dream Count for the 2 weeks: 1 Dream from 1 Night so far.

      Had a crazy weekend. Sorry for the delay on posting!

      Friday Night 9/09 - no dreams. Had a late night out with friends. Alcohol + only 4 hours of sleep = no recall
      Saturday Night 9/10 - One dream fragment about being terrible at basketball.
      Sunday Night 9/11 - One Dream Fragment about sleeping on a hotel floor.
      Monday Night 9/12 - 2 Short Dream Fragments, Brief lucidity during one dream.
      Tuesday Night 9/13 - 2 Dreams.

      Dream Count for the 2 weeks: 7 Dreams from 6 Nights so far.
      I'm not sure if we count the fragments or not? How do we define a fragment vs a dream? Is it just that fragments are shorter?

      Last night I also had a false awakening where I thought I woke up briefly and wrote down a fragment in my dream journal. Later when I did wake up, there was nothing on the page. I feel that the last two nights were far better for dream recall due to the fact that I was listening to a Hemi-Sync Lucid Dreaming excersise before bed.

      Fa's where you wake up and journal are the WORST! You take the time to write it down and then theres nothing there. GUTTED.

      Good work on your recall though, and crongrats on becoming lucid, if only for a short amount of time!

      Thanks Nito!

      The FA with the DJ was pretty bad because I am sure there was a dream before it and now it's lost. But all in all it was a good weekend to be dreaming.

      I had a few times where I was starting to fall asleep this weekend and would just start to dream. I suddenly realized I was falling asleep and would kind of jerk myself awake before completely falling asleep. Does anyone else have this problem when trying to ease into sleep? It's like I am so excited to try to remember my dreams that I am being too sensitive to what is going on before I fall asleep. I wonder if a sleep mask would help? It seems like I open my eyes a little bit and then poof, I am awake.

      Yes I often experience this... You feel yourself falling to sleep and then think about it for a sec, all of a sudden your wide awake.

      Ah I was wondering where you were at Good job keeping track of your progress! The recall goal is going good it seems. And yes, we count fragments aswell. There's no true definition of a fragment really, but it's a short dream or fragmented dream. I usually count a dream with less than 10 lines a fragment.

      The jerking part is really annoying at times. Sometimes it feels like I'm falling down or something like that. But I also get jerked back to reality when I realise I'm very close to falling asleep. I fall asleep quickly though so I don't suffer that much from it. You can try a sleeping mask. It can be good to use when you want to sleep in on weekends and it's getting light out.

      Attend chat if you can tomorrow, it would be fun to have a few more people on that can vote on the tasks. Keep on dreaming!

      I'll try to show up for the chat
      If my calculations are correct, chat time is 4pm EST?
      I have tried to get into chat before. It seems the In-Browser chat does not work for me. I downloaded mIRC but didn't really know how to use it. It didn't connect for me.

      Wednesday Night 9/14 - 3 Dreams.

      Dream Count for the 2 weeks: 10 Dreams from 7 Nights so far.

      I tried to ease into sleep using the Hemi-Sync excersises and relaxing to WILD. Sleeping on my back was quite different for me, but it seemed to work better. I actually got to the point where I was very close to sleeping and I suddenly saw a dark, wood door with a peephole in it. It was very close, as if I was about to look through the peephole. Unfortunately, I told myself, "This is a dream already!" and woke myself up by being too excited about it.

      I had one nightmare that kept me awake for a good half an hour or so.

      Forgot to mention that I made sure to do a RC every time I woke up to write down a dream in my journal. Hopefully that habit pays off!

      Ah yeah sounds like you had some Hypnagogic Imagery. Cool! The excitement will be less for each time, just keep it up!

      Also, make sure you vote in the new poll I just posted and read the chatlog. New tasks have been posted, I hope you like them

      I missed the chat, but I have a good excuse. I was taking a nap between work and a night of gaming with friends. I did get a dream recall in there, so it's all good. Again I tried to WILD before taking the nap, and again after a while I saw something kind of cool. It was as if my eyes were open and I saw some of my hair blowing around my face, all red/golden and shiny. But I realized, "Wait, I'm wearing a sleep mask. I couldn't be seeing that." Poof, it was gone and I was awake again.

      Dream Count for the 2 weeks: 14 Dreams from 8 Nights so far.

      Dream recall is going well, but so far no progress on the other tasks ... I just don't get lucid often or stay lucid when I do.

      I tried to WBTB after sleeping around 6 hours but was so tired that after about 20 minutes or so I rolled over and intentionally went to sleep. Maybe next time.

      Dream Count for the 2 weeks: 17 Dreams from 9 Nights so far.

      If I don't have a real lucid dream by the end of the two weeks, should I repeat the first set of tasks for another 2 weeks?

      Yeah what Nito said. You can pick three passive tasks from three diferent weeks if you'd like. There's no "have to" in this class The dream count task is about how many of those days you've had a dream. Have you had dreams all 9 days out of 14? If so, if you have another dream tomorrow, you will have done it and I will give you a nice *
