      Around January 2008, my brother created a very effective lucid dreaming technique. He has done this technique 5 times and has succeeded to get 4 long, vivid lucid dreams. He has told many of his friends about the technique, and they claim to have had success with it as well. It makes plenty of sense to me, as it is some kind of visualization technique. So if you're reading this, add this to your nightly dream routine, at least one time. Tell me how it works out for you; he'd love to know if his technique works for others.

      As a lover of juvenile humor (he's 11, people) he named this technique "TURD"

      Think
      Understand
      Rethink
      Dream

      THINK about what you want to see in your dream. Visualize the scene exactly as you would see it in a dream. Do not skimp on details like smells, tastes, or other sensations. And make sure the scene you visualize is going to help you become lucid, or you've defeated the purpose!

      UNDERSTAND how it will work. Go through the scene again, and imagine a voice explaining how each item will help you achieve lucidity.

      RETHINK so you will not forget. This is like a combination of THINK and UNDERSTAND.

      DREAM (lucidly).


      Here is what my brother does when using the TURD technique.

      He thought about the items that would help him achieve lucidity.
      Then he understood where they would need to be used.
      He rethought about the scene. (below)

      "I thought about 'RC' written on the wall. And then, I had a cell phone, and someone text messaged me saying 'Come to the RC competition.' And then I went to the competition, not knowing what 'RC' meant, then the announcer announced, 'welcome to the reality check competition!' Then, when it was my turn to do it, I did my reality check and found out I was dreaming."

      Note: During the technique, try not to move and DO NOT let your mind wander. Be still, quiet, and focused.
      Note 2: My brother's personal technique is different from the general one I listed above.

      If you follow these rules you should get lucid.

      Tell me what you think, both before and after trying this.
      This sounds very similar to something I have done with my wife in the past. I have been able to help induce lucid dreams by way of guided meditation that takes advantage of the whole "imagine your dreamscape in vivid detail" thing, which was precluded by a guided relaxation technique to help relax the body and prepare it for "sleep". It has worked multiple times, so there must be something to it. Not only does it keep you focused (which aids in keeping you lucid) but it also helps manifest the dreamscape you will be wondering once you exit (as opposed to exiting and being "blind" or not having a solidified dreamscape yet).

      Here's an good technique I wrote a few years back, before WBTB was well known and before CAT had been coined.

      smells like a good one.



      I'm going to have this guy tell me to do an RC.

      Imagine if this worked for someone and them coming back and saying, 'Hey guys, i did a TURD last night'

      Anyways sweet idea will give it a go.
      Peace
      The idea is to be in a constant state of leaving while always arriving.

      I think you pulled this one out of your ass (pun intended) and BSed (pun intended) a technique so you could name it TURD. The truth is, this technique probably stinks (pun intended)

      lol

      Pretty well-known, tried and true technique to ensure that the last thing you're thinking about is "lucidity" before you slip into the dreamworld. I'm curious to know if anyone is/was able to actually fall into the dreamscape they visualized.

      In any case, I'll try this tonight and see how it works out for me. Of course I am already taking part in a dream-enhancing activity. Double-up couldn't hurt I suppose.

      Last night I went to sleep exhausted from staying up so late; my own fault, of course. However, I felt I had enough energy to at least make at attempt to TURD.



      The dream scene I imagined was one of me with a girl on the beach. I ran through several girls in my head (from celebrities to high school crushes) and had trouble settling and focusing on just one. I imagined the words reality check tattooed on her left arm so I would be reminded it was a dream. Admittedly, I probably didn't put as much effort into it as I should in order to get the results described. However...

      To my surprise, it worked! Not perfectly, I might add, but results seemed much more than coincidental. Take a look at the most result post in my dream journal titled "Mysterious Man, Beautiful Woman" and see what I mean. At the risk of damaging the results of my research I'm going to refrain from using this technique for the next week or so, but I'll definitely be holding on to it as a potential means of sculpting my future lucids.

      Spoiler for PS:

      This is hilarious, and actually sounds like it could work.

      I can just imagine someone walking in on a person trying to do this: "What are you doing?" "I'M TRYING TO TURD, LEAVE ME ALONE!!"

      Excellent! I had quite long dryspell going on but then the TURD came and saved me (weirdest sentence I've ever wrote... :-D). I've always wondered can you actually forget LD and this time I almost did, but it came back to me during the day. It was just about the RC. I was counting my fingers 1, 2, 3... 10, yeah, that's about right. Wait, in one hand?!? LOL!

      And again! Even though it wasn't THE dream I was thinking of over and over again before I fell asleep, I had a LD. Was in the town where I was born (going to visit there in couple of weeks). I was in a bus, watching a Spitfire flying over the bus and then falling on the roof of the bus station/office building, but when the propeller just went thru the roof without any damage, I began to think: "If I can jump thru the bus door, I am dreaming.", I did and I was. Just wasn't able to stabilize it (nothing new in that).

      I did this all the time before, I stopped because it was more effortless to MILD, but this always worked for me. I never called it anything, I thought it was pretty much a V-MILD. It's really just making a dream in which you do a reality check. I think it was called projecting dreams or something like that, when you think/visualize what you want to dream about. Then just project a dream of doing a RC. I like the RC contest idea.

      It always worked for me, hopefully it'll gain some popularity.

      Thanks for the MILD tip, shiraniaori! I'll give it a try.

      I've tried to re-imagine my Spitfire-LD, but make it land so I could jump in and fly around with it. No such luck so far.

      I'm not the creator of the TURD, but in my experience, when your trying to incubate dreams like this (yeah, incubating dreams, I remembered that's what it's called) Don't just think of "I'm going to do an RC" or "I'm going to be in an RC contest". I've learned the words don't matter too much, and really focus on the intent.

      Most of all, focus on what it's like to do an RC. I found 10 min of focusing on imagining pinching my nose, and really focusing on my intent, is way more effective than just repeating a mantra, because that becomes boring and monotonous, and your brain thinks up other things to distract you.

      Meditation beforehand helps a lot, so you can keep your focus, but the focus on intent could be called a meditation as well. To me, don't just keep going till you go to sleep, you'll get distracted, do it for a while, and decide your gonna sleep, and think about the intent a little. It'll become those annoying thoughts in your head and it'll work in my experience. It should be a very passive process when you go to sleep, just keep the idea there.

      That's if your not good at focusing intensely until you fall asleep, which I would assume many people aren't.
