      Mango's Workbook

      I'm Mango and I've made this workbook to keep my progress, get better at lucid dreaming, and keep my motivation up. My usual bedtime is from 9:30pm - 10:30pm and I sleep for eight hours on average.

      Reality Checks

      -Examining hands
      -Nose plug
      -Memory
      -Dream Control

      Short-Term Goals

      -To fly and use telekinesis
      -Run around naked

      Long-Term Goals

      -Have great dream recall to the point where all my dreams are very vivid like real life
      -Get lucid regularly

      Dream Recall History

      -Average used to be 2-3 dreams a night

      Current Techniques

      -Short WBTBs
      -DILD/MILD
      -Mindful meditation
      -Self awareness

      Augh. I went to bed last night, confident that I would do a WBTB from my phone's alarm and then SSILD. Well, this is what happened: I went to bed at 11PM, woke up at 3AM (two hours early from my phone alarm) and I remembered a few vivid dreams. Thing is that I wasn't bothered to write them down, and I regret that. I turned off my phone alarm, not fucked to do SSILD anymore and sleep until 8AM. Then I recorded one dream I had and couldn't remember the other ones.

      Wow. This is what laziness does to me. I really need to stop doing that. >:

      Tried SSILD three times last night but fell asleep during the earlier cycles. I forgot to walk around and get my mind aware so that's my fault. I remembered two dreams, though! One of them was a Dragonball Z dream. Very strange.

      Well I've had an interesting day with voluntary work, but it has been stressing me out a bit so I hope my dreams don't suffer tonight! Last night, I didn't even bother with SSILD or WBTB because I had to wake up early. Hopefully I can do it tonight!

      My dream signs have now changed. The most frequent one being natural disasters like volcanoes and tsunamis. Another one, less frequent, is being on the edge of a cliff.

      Going to have some chamomile tea later, read more things on Dream Views, and affirm to myself 'I'm going to have a lucid dream tonight'. Don't know which technique I'm going to use but I'll say this now: I'm not going to stick with one technique. Well, for now. I'd just like to experiment and see which one would be the best for me.

      (*facepalm* Neglecting this website and my workbook was a stupid mistake.)

      Only recalled 2 short dreams and 1 fragment. I think playing PlayStation late at night isn't such a good idea... will try to remember to turn down lights a couple of hours before bed and do something relaxing like read a book. Didn't do any techniques at all. Should've said a dream recall mantra, haha.

      Hey AstralMango, welcome back!

      Don't know which technique I'm going to use but I'll say this now: I'm not going to stick with one technique. Well, for now. I'd just like to experiment and see which one would be the best for me.
      Well, you can pick multiple techniques, just don't discart them straight away because they do take time to work. By the way have you seen this thread, it way give you some ideas about mixing techs.

      Went to bed at 10:30 last night. I turned down lights and did something relaxing a couple of hours before bed. Wrote down my whole day in my waking journal. I also had Chamomile tea to help me sleep.

      Ah, bad idea. I can only remember fragments and even then I can remember one for 5 seconds. I've noticed any sleeping aid makes my recall go bye-bye in the past couple of months I've been absent.

      So... no more Chamomile then. I'll just stick within water.

      Insomnia struck! I couldn't get to sleep 'till around 2:30am and had no recall due to only having a few hours of sleep. Well, there's always tonight.

      Maybe tomorrow, after I've read some more threads on DV, I'll start ADA and see how that works out. I've tried it in the past and I think my dreams were vivid when I used it. Maybe my dream recall will come back when I start using it again.

      Started ADA today. It's a lot of fun trying to focus senses and try and spot things I take for granted, but hard to stop my imagination running wild. Not worried though! I know I'm a beginner at this and that I'll get better at it! It's the afternoon now so I still have lots of time to do it.

      Now let's see how this'll affects my dream. Might not do much, but I've heard that it could take a while for my brain to "rewire" itself. Really excited for the upcoming results this technique will give.

      My dreams are slightly more vivid, but jeez, my recall sucks! I'm trying to recall dreams in the morning but they slip away. I suppose I'll have to look through my dream journal and look at past dreams before I go to sleep tonight!

      Have you considered using some recall related mantra pre bed? Or just mentally say to yourself something like "Now, I'm going to sleep and I will remember my dreams (when I wake up), my recall is improving, etc." You can also add "I will recognize that I'm dreaming and remember my dream". It certainly doesn't hurt to spend 5 mins before falling asleep doing this and you might get an ld as a bonus.

      Yeah, I should do that. D'oh! I can't believe I forgot that MILDing is also good for dream recall! I'll need to re-read Naiya's MILD Guide for a little refreshment on things, haha.

      Done MILD for the past couple of nights, mantra is, "I remember my dreams." Unfortunately I haven't had good sleep those last two nights. The storm going on at the moment keeps activating the security light outside my window and it's causing me to lose sleep! Better tell Dad about that...

      Anyway, dreams are slightly better to recall but I only get one very short dream a night. Gonna keep trying with this though!

      Well, obviously you get more then just one dream a night. Just can't remember them.

      Anyways, good luck with MILD! MILD is great!

      Hehe, that was what I meant. Should've said 'only remember one dream a night'. And thank you!

      Still doing MILD to try and remember my dreams. Unfortunately it's not doing much at all. I might read a few posts around the site for any tips on recall but for now, I'm not doing any induction techniques for lucidity. Honestly, all I want is my recall back! It will come back soon, I know. I'll keep trying!

      Any bright screens or lights before bed time by chance? For me this has a terrible impact on recall. Also, if my sleep schedule fluctuates a lot. Best of luck! You are going to get your awesome recall back!

      Bright lights? Oh yeah, of course! I've been reading on my iPod before bed so this might be why. Thanks, Nyx!

      I've been feeling really exhausted this week, so I haven't bothered to do lucid dreaming related stuff (I'm bad!). I'll get back to it on Friday when I have the day off. I think it's the stress of school and all that jazz.

      Must practise ADA!
