      Lucidmats' Workbook

      Hey there! My name is Mats and I am a beginner lucid dreamer and I am hoping to help here with my questions (I already got a lot of help, thank you all!) and to be a part of the community.

      I am not a natural and i think I only knew i was dreaming once when having a nightmare over and over again. I found LD by accident on Google and kept reading about it.

      I have only had 15 lucid dreams so far, in 5 of them I was actually able to carry out some action. The times before I instantly lost the dream and woke up after noticing me dreaming. I started out by doing random RCīs in a dream and becoming lucid. In my last couple of lucid dreams (after some practice) I started noticing something strange, did a RC, becoming lucid thinking wow I didnīt actually think this was a dream, well that explains a lot.

      I have been using mainly DILD techniques mixed with a little MILD prior going to bed. I have read ETWOLD from Stephen LaBerge and tried his prospective memory exercises. I got better after a couple days at remembering my goals and I really made some progress there. Apart from waking life I donīt think I had that much success with it though.
      I have had some success with FILD and a little with WILD, although I carried out my 2 FILDīs during a false awakening so I am not really sure if that counts as WILD or a DILD.

      I started out by buying a nice dream-journal and increasing my recall. Beginning with one dream every other night and I am at about 2-3 pretty vivid dreams now. Hopefully I can keep that up, as for my long-term goal, I want my "dream-recall-ratio-per-night" to be arround 4-5 vivid dreams.

      My biggest problem is stability! At first I kept losing my lucid dreams instantly after getting lucid, now I am at a point where I can keep them up for some time if I remember to stabilize correctly. Out of my couple lucid dreams I only managed to pull it off in my last one, so this is my biggest problem, exept getting lucid in the first place

      I had a little streak (evry other day) after trying ADA but it looks like I am dry-spelling right now, if a beginner can even use that word
      Anyways, ADA á la KingYoshi and mindfulness á la Sageous, paired with RRCīs and really mindful RCīs seem like a good way to go!
      As a lot of people already pointed out, practicing mindfulness really getīs your head out of that zombie-like life, doing your everyday routine and living on auto-pilot.

      My short-term goals are:

      -Flying
      -Eating something tasty
      -Teleporting "Jumper from the X-men style"
      -Driving
      -Party with some hot dream chicks
      -Have a persistant dream realm (this is a big one!)

      My long-term goals are:

      -Being able to lucid dream on demand (at least 1 lucid dream per night)
      -Connecting with my inner self
      -Helping other people to learn this awesome skill, since I got terrific help from a lot of people and Iīd like to share my experience and help others when I am at a level where I am not the one who needs that much help anymore

      My RCīs are:

      -Nose pinch (most reliable one)
      -Counting my fingers

      My mantras are:

      -I am dreaming
      -I will notice that I am dreaming
      -I will have a lot lucid dreams tonight

      Any advice is welcome and needed!!!

      I forgot to mention, I figured out my REM cycles for when I go to bed at 11pm. So I currently have 2-3 alarms ( depends on when I have to get up in the morning ) with 5 second auto snooze for a micro-wbtb. If I feel really awake I go get a drink and sometimes a snack, write my dream down and attempt a WILD. If I wake up really tired I stay still and attempt a DEILD or a FILD, the latter I had more success with...

      2 lucids last night! They are finally coming again..

      I did pretty well on ADA yesterday and had the vigilance always in the back of my head. I drank water before bed and remembered some dream when waking up. Arround 3:10. I went to sleep normally. My second alarm, at 4:10 woke me up and I went to the bathroom. After coming back I tried a WILD. I used counting from 1-100, when I got too drowsy I said my mantra again to get my awareness up again. I continued maybe 25 minutes to a point where I could feel myself carrying something but without any vision. But what is that? My nose starts itching and I sneeze like never before... So much for that.

      After reading all of Senseiīs posts I decided to give SSILD a shot. Although I donīt see how that could really help I did it. A couple minutes later I dream about me chewing gum and spitting my tooth in my hand, well thats not possible, I become lucid but wake up immidiately. I repeat SSILD and become lucid again. Same thing

      The "really believing in yourself being the best" - technique probably played into that success also, I will definetly continue doing that!

      I finally succeded with WILD! And not once, but 3 times
      I used SSILD again and entered a dream while doing step one, watching the darkness of your eyelids. It was really fast and almost no sleep-antonia. So I go lucid but I still canīt open my eyes in a dream. I didnt think about visualizing but tried to seperate myself from my body. That worked pretty well. In my 3rd try I got until my hip. Hope I can finish it next time!

      EDIT: Not sure about the 15 lucids, could have already hit that goal. I am at at least 13!

      Well done, Mats! It's so exciting to see how far you've come already!
      Wow, your LD count this month is impressive!
      Keep up the great work.
