      Talking Lucas(Potter)'s Workbook

      First, I'll copy some stuff from a thread I started somewhere else... and then I'll keep updating this one! Thanks, LvB, for the suggestion!

      "I've had sleep paralysis on and off for a few years (it'd happen three nights in a row and then it'd only happen again months later), so I decided to google it. I found out what it was and then started reading about lucid dreaming.

      About two weeks ago, I decided to try doing it. I've had my fair share of nightmares for a lifetime and, frankly, I want to do some cool stuff in dreams. I've been having a hard time getting into sleep paralysis (I managed to do it the first night, but I... I chickened out when I started hearing someone whispering in my ear. Yeah, I'm a wuss...)

      After that, I've been trying to find stuff on the internet and finally, I got here. It's a wonderful site with many tutorials and I feel like, if I'm going to do this, it's going to be because I've read lots of threads here.

      Anyway, I'm sorry for the rant. I just wanted to say hi and thank you for helping me!" (Jan 27)

      "I was sleeping, dreaming about Glee, when I woke up. Not a big deal, right? I went to my bathroom and my girlfriend was there, I talked to her for a bit. Then I went back to my bedroom and noticed that there was something weird with me. I looked at the mirror and kept seeing people walking by me. I freaked out, tried to pinch myself, but nothing was working. After that, I woke up. I was afraid of being ANOTHER false awakening, so I took lots of papers with numbers and started checking them. They were okay, so I was relieved. I went to the bathroom, I told my girlfriend what had happened and then I noticed my dog inside a bird's cage. I took him out of there and, again, I looked at the mirror. I could see myself, but I was turning my head, like the girl from The Exorcist. Once more, I freaked out. After some time, I managed to wake up." (Jan 27)

      Those are the most important parts, I think... if you're interested, also check my DJ! I've been updating it regularly! ...regularly = everyday since I've started posting here... three days, so far.

      I've honestly been being lazy for the past 3 weeks, so no lucid dreams for me. I've gotten reasonably good at dream recall though, so that's something. This week I think I'm gonna be pretty busy, so probably not enough time to do WBTB's, so I'm going to be focusing on reality checks. I'm going to do them whenever I enter or leave a building, as well as whenever I am about to eat food.

      Good luck! I'm heading to bed.

      Ah, that's good, getting better at dream recall! Do you have a DJ? I've started one here when I registered (...three days ago...) and I think it's a really interesting experience, writing down my dreams.

      Ohhh, that's a great plan! I tried doing a reality check in a dream and I failed, though, so I'm a little demotivated to try that, at least for now.

      Sweet (and, hey, why not?, also lucid!) dreams!

      Right, so I went to bed last night, set the alarm clock... and then, my girlfriend called me in the middle of the night. I don't know if it interfered or not, all I know is that I wasn't able to have a lucid dream. I vaguely remember hearing the alarm clock, but... yeah. I need to try again tonight.

      On the bright side, fourth day in a row that I wrote on my DJ. I'm very proud of that, at least it's one thing I know I'm doing right... even though I don't remember much about what I dreamt of last night.

      Welcome to class! Sorry for not greeting you earlier, been kinda busy. Keep on writing in your DJ and you'll improve your recall. It'll become a habit soon and you will gladly do it. Paying attention to how awesome regular dreams are is a great way of staying motivated. Remember that the more you think about lucid dreaming and crave one, the bigger chance of it happening. If you have any questions, ask away!

      Thanks, Matte! I didn't have any luck last night, but I did have a false awakening... third time in five days it happens, so I guess it's something?

      Well the fact that you remember having a false awakening surely counts for something, right?

      I found that when I wasn't using an alarm, drinking water before going to bed, and repeatedly telling myself throughout the day that I would wake up after my dreams and write them down helped a good deal. I was personally unable to get to the level of waking up after each dream during the night, but i admittedly was not very good with my practice of it.

      Using a voice recorder helps me a lot, especially since my alarm and voice recorder are the same piece of tech (cell phone).

      I think I need to set an alarm clock to wake me up before my parents do it... because they're waking me up every morning by shouting at me telling me to do stuff. To remember a dream, I need to wake up peacefully and stay in bed for some time.

      I'll try doing that, the telling myself I'll wake up after my dreams, it sounds like a great idea. Thanks!

      Have you looked at any of the tutorials on this site, or Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen Laberge? You might want to check those out, they're pretty good resources.
      Maybe today you could try telling yourself periodically throughout the night that you WILL wake up after each of your dreams and record them. That way, you might be able to get more than one.

      Happy dreams!

      No, my profile says I'm a transsexual. I'm biologically a girl, but I see myself, and want to be treated, as a guy.

      Well cool! I have another question for you: your profile says you're from Brazil, so where/how did you learn to speak English so fluently?

      Thanks, zaq! I've studied English for half of my life and I always found it an easy subject... and, of course, the internet, TV, films, music... Everything is in English!

      ...just be glad you've never heard my accent.

      I think it's a really good idea and I plan on doing that every ten days! It should help me a lot! We'll see...

      No luck again. I think I need to go to bed earlier, I'm too tired whenever I wake up. Today, I slept during the whole morning (I woke up after noon), so...
