      Roseburg's Workbook

      I normally go to bed between 11 & 12 midnight and wake up around 9:30am.
      My dream sign is pushing my finger through my palm. DILD is my most common method of becoming lucid.
      Goals for LDs
      To ask several Dcs what they like most about their life, and to recall the answers.

      I'm going to bed at 12-12:30, I don't foresee good conditions for a successful lucid dreaming session. I can recall nothing about my dreaming last night, I know I had some dreaming but can't remember the contents. I am visiting my in laws for the holidays, this is throwing me off. I have noticed that since using Lateral Kava Root for managing my alcohol cravings (successfully) for the past 3 months, my dreams are more vivid consistently. This is truly a bonus! If anything happens I will wake up and write it down, but being stuck on a futon for a week and a half has been really hard on my back and my dreaming.

      Hi Roseburg, welcome to intro class!

      Have nice holidays and I hope that futon won't be too uncomfortable. On the brighter side, it may facilitate some accidental lding, who knows (light sleep or noisy relatives have helped me have some lds, although it's taxing on the nerves).

      If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or in the http://www.dreamviews.com/intro-clas...o-class-q.html thread.

      Take care!

      Yeah! I'm home where I have WiFi access on something larger than my Kindle Fire! I am also back to my own bed and took a wonderful 2 hr nap today, so maybe I will get lucky and be able to dream lucidly tonight. I had 1 fragmented lucid dream 2 days ago, and it was really something. I was at a house with a very large indoor Olympic sized swimming pool. I played around for a while non lucid and approached an acquaintance from work at the far end, he was covered in bandages, his hair was falling out and he had open infected sores on his head. Still I didn't want to appear to notice because I didn't want to embarrass him. I said hi and called him by name "Jeremy" . We caught up for a little while, then I became lucid. He had said something that peaked my interest and my sub-conscience kicked in and I wanted to know more. Not wanting him to know I was fully lucid at this point I gently steered the conversation towards my goal. He told me about meeting bad entities, and somehow I think he sensed my disappointment and smiled knowingly (in an uncomfortable way) and casually said that he had met God as well. I asked him many questions about God, what he was like, what he looked like, did he tell him anything he felt was important. He changed a little into a handsomer man and steered the conversation towards sex and I gave in. Then I woke up. ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG I am so frustrated with the sex thing, 3/4 the time the dream sex isnt even enjoyable, but some how the dream characters use that to get me to forget my purpose in the lucid dream. They are damn sneaky.

      I am going to bed at 1:12 am tonight, with a nice long nap this after noon, I will record anything unusual.

      Welcome back and a happy lucid new year to you!

      Also, congrats on the ld, it sounds like a really cool one! I try every once in a while to get answers to spiritual questions but my DCs are rather unhelpful, they usually don't say much or answer in gibberish. It's really nice you managed to keep the conversation going even if it did go in another direction in the end.

      THANK YOU -yes! I am happy to have had a lucid experiance. I have had wonderful luck with searching out the spiritual within my lucidity and I have even met spiritually strong DCs who seem to have depth and intellegence within them. One was called a "Number One" I almost tripped over him/her (no obvious gender)
      Because it was standing behind me and I had not precognition of it being there which is strange because I would say 90 % or more of the dream seems to be thought generated. It was extreamly intellegent and patient and kind but still would not answer some of my questions

      No dreaming remembered last night. Tonight I took X6 600 Mg fish oil/ omega 3. Sometimes this seems to boost lucidity or at least recall. Going to sleep now at 12:35am. Hopefully I will have something to report next entry.

      That's an interesting encounter! I was once similarly surprised by a DC touching my shoulder, since I usually don't think about what's behind and quite often there's nothing there until I decide to look. Unfortunately, it was just a regular guy. Oh, wait, there's one good brief somewhat intelligent conversation that I had with a female DC, I was looking for advice in general and she told me that one has to "live in harmony with the surroundings because it affects our DNA". That's as fas I got, then some kids stormed the room and the dream soon ended.

      Sweet dreams!

      Not going to bed until 1:30ish am.
      Had 3 orders
      come in for my small store, so I've been
      Trying hard to get them all done by Monday.
      I make therapeutic sleep aids for little kids.
      Right now I am making a longhorn bull,
      An Ewok and a Wookie. You can heat them in
      The microwave and they are great for nighttime anxiety as
      Well as sick kids. I'm very very tired. I've been
      Attempting to dodge a coldsore so I am on
      Mega doses of Lysine, I'm not sure if that will
      Effect dream quality. Last night I only can remember
      Fragments of a non lucid. My husband and were sharing
      A house with a middle eastern couple, the man didn't like
      Something I had done so he grabbed me and yelled at me.
      Annoyed I explained to him that though I understood there were
      Cultural differences and expectations about women that in this šountry
      He was not allowed to treat me that way. I then asked them to leave.
      I wish that I had been lucid, maybe then I could have questioned his motives
      For grabbing me...maybe I would have gotten a viable explanation. Or at least an interesting
      One. The rest of the dream was about trying to control my drinking, drinking beer. I really hate drinking dreams
      It's very annoying because I have found an effective way to deal with cravings during the day but not in my dreams. I feel this is a weakness that needs yo be overcome for better and sustained mental Health and continued sobriety. This is a goal as of now.

      Hope you managed to get some rest after mixing up all the ingredients. So you have a great knowledge of all sorts of herbs and supps, that is so cool! Let us know if you stumble across some good vividness/recall enhancing ones. About the other thing, you sound like a determined person so I'm sure you will manage to reduce the occurrence of bad habit dreams sooner or later. Take care!

      I had a lucid, I asked a DC what his favorite part of life was, He replied "death", I asked him to repeat that because I was sure I was wrong, He repeated it "I like death the best out of life." I asked him why, he told me something but I couldn't understand him, he tried a couple more times, but I couldn't get what he was saying. That is all I remember from the dream. I've had about 4 shells of ISA Kava tonight and think my dreaming may be more vivid, I will try asking this question again, hoping to understand the next answer.

      I have limited knowledge of pharmaceuticals and Botanical effect on dreaming, I have tried Omega 3 (fish oil) and Calea Z dream Herb, which taste awful but produces vivid dreams, though not lucid for me. Fish oil does seem to make dreaming more vivid and provide good dream recall. I am thinking about buying the book "Advanced Lucid Dreaming: The Power of Supplements" I reach lucidity pretty easily on my own if I practice a few times, then most nights are spent semi-lucid. I dont want to be dependent on anything not naturally produced by my own body to gain lucidity.

      Congrats on the ld! Maybe this DC was into something very philosophical?

      Hmm, there has been an increased talk about this Calea Z around, but I still haven't tried it. Maybe sometime in the future. Right now I like to drink a little coffee during my wbtb, it works pretty well if I keep the dosage low enough, for me that's 20-40 mg of caffeine. I still understand not wanting to be dependent on a supp for lding. If you have a lot of semi-lucids you can capitalize on that, and also I find that the more one practices the easier it gets. At some point you also start remembering previous dreams during the dream and that can trigger lucidity as well.

      And a happy birthday to you! Lots of lucidity, joy, luck and success in everything you do!

      ***appologies for any content that may be deemed graphic i am simply reporting as is so I don't lose any important details*** Lucid dream on my birthday! Simple - I was about to have dream sex with a very good looking DC when I remembered my task. We were kissing very passionately but i could feel close to nothing as far as the sex was conserned. I realised he was going through the motions but didn't seem to enjoy this part. So I stopped him and smiled at him with my hands on his face. I asked him what his favorite part of life is he replied " the kissing-because he could feel that" I then asked if he didn't enjoy penitration he shook his head and said "we do it for you but I dont have that anymore." I decided we should just keep kissing because he could still feel that. I felt this was an important conversation. I am always left with more questions than awnsers. Yet I enjoy their answers very much.

      No worries! Congrats on the ld! Very impressive you managed to interrupt sexy time and question the DC. This can be quite a difficult task.

      Asking them questions is very cool and you get interesting answers too! By the way one of tasks of the month for Jan is to ask a DC for his NY resolution if you are interested. http://www.dreamviews.com/tasks-mont...ry-2014-a.html

      Breakthrough! Full recall this morning. It is time to meditate on my RCs...its time to get back to lding. Kava levels in my body are no longer affecting the dreaming chemical balance. I can have my sobriety and dream too!

      Only early morning dreaming. Drinking dreams, nothing lucid. They kind of annoy me since i've been sober for sometime now. Oh well. I believe tonight will be different. Sometimes you can feel that it is just the right atmosphere for lucid dreaming.

      It can be annoying, yes. Also, possibly not the best thing to think about, but could be theoretically used as a dream sign...

      Is there something cool you've planned for your next ld? I often find my future ld plans as a great motivator to follow up

      I fell back asleep around 8:30 am. And I had a dream that I was seemingly no longer an alcoholic but able to have fun and party if I wanted too. Then the dream spun into a divergence of reality and obvious non reality- my hallway filled up with water and the bottom dropped out to make it a short pool. I stood looking at the water, feeling a negative presence. I looked up and saw a demon that had black eyes and tried to say something to me but in anger that I was being deceived I yelled at it to go away. "You are a deceiver!, You have no control over me! Get OUT GET OUT GET OUT!" "YOU are Simply a thing of my mind- NOW DISAPPEAR!" And I blew it into dust with my mouth. I then wanting to prove to my self the utter silliness of the situation belly flopped into the pool, and the water felt like condensesd air but not wet like water and I levitated myself a few inches from it. I realized the significance of the dream- that I could speak out, when before my voice would become muted and I couldn't hear my self shout. I gained some sort of power this way, mental or spiritual in some way. Between this and the next dream sequence I tried to wake my self up but I couldn't pull myself through to consciences and saw my physical body trying to separate from my spiritual body. It was not going to happen so I let myself slip back into dreaming. Next I remember realizing that I had been on some sort of wild drug and alcohol binge that I could not remember. I had sewed the sides of my arms like I had been sutured for a wound. I realized that this was bad, that I had been completely gone mentally when this happened. I went to my husband and said I know something happened but I cannot remember using or what I did what did I do? He explained to me that at first I was happy and energetic, almost crazy- thinking I could fly and making sounds like a jet engine, then it turned dark. I closed my eyes and I could see flashes of memory almost like circus posters first of the fun and manic episode and then the darkness that took over. He shivered and said that it was something special I could do that. He then said he would remove the stitches from my arm- my father called and I woke up.

      This morning between 9 and 11 I had a loosely lucid dream. I was traveling the world and had stopped on a rocky arctic shore on the edge of a small town. I sat on the very edge and looked out, I looked down and saw a piece of the rock was loose so I moved it away and saw someone had been hiding things in a small hole on the rock. I looked through these things one by one and put them back, but decided to keep one as a memento that I had been there and left something of mine in it's place. Then I heard someone and realized I was now right up against the back porch of one of the arctic houses. They looked like houses out of the movie "Shipping News". I had to get out fast before they thought I was trespassing. SO I shot strait up and flew away. In the same dream I saw a movie theater I recognize from several other dreams, I've seen it at least two other times. Every time I see it, it intrigues me and looks like something retro and old fashioned, or has that vibe to it. I think it is intriguing that I remember this place and it appears the same as if it was real somehow.

      That's a cool dream, congrats! The old movie theater sounds intriguing, especially the fact that you dream about it from time to time. Sometimes I also experience reoccurring places, even though they don't exist irl or I haven't been there irl.

      I had a very vivid dream about seeing a dear departed friend. I was touring a museum and walked into some kind of a meeting room where I immediately recognized my elderly friend Alma and called out her, she turned around and said in her sweet souther drawl "Oh Honey it's so good to see you come over here so I can hug you!" I did, I ran over and hugged her as tight and long as I could, I snuggled right into her, I have missed her so much. She said "Oh, that is just Yummy!" (lol - it seemed to make sense at the time, that she loved the hug and called it that.) She was no longer frail, she didn't have a breathing tube, and she could stand without a walker. I told her I was so happy to see her and I really was. Whenever I see people who have passed I always see them as younger and healthier versions of themselves. I remember one exhibit that they were still working on because my husband and I went there next, it was a long hallway with different colors of rock stratified to represent the different eras- but the rocks were loose and my husbands math professor also happened to be walking with a friend, she told us to be careful because they were still working on the exhibit.

      Once I drempt of seeing my grandfather after he passed away. I hadn't talked to him because I was a drug addict and I wouldn't return his phone calls, so when he died I felt a lot of guilt. When I saw my grandfather I was at his house in Coalinga, Ca, there was a birthday party going on in their house for a little child. The whole family was there, I didn't recognize anyone, and everyone was in 50's-60's style clothes. I saw my grandfather and my grandmother sitting and I ran to him and told him how sorry I was that I had not made him a priority in my heart and life when he was alive. I had never really known my grandmother, she was very sick when I was small and died when I was 9. In my dream my grandfather looked about 35, he was strong and tan and wore freshly pressed clothes. Next to him my grandmother wore a 50's house dress she was plump and rosy with curly hair, she was holding a doll. She just smiled at me. My grandfather said "It's alright, we are happy here, everything is good here." then I woke up. 5 yrs later when going through my father family albums I found a picture of my grandmother, she was sitting in a chair like the one I had seen, wearing a housedress, with her hair curled up around her head, she was plump, the photo was in black and white but i could see she was very healthy and happy. She smiled at the camera and in her lap she held a doll just like the one I saw in my dream. I had never seen these pictures, yet it solidified a feeling in me that my grandfather had actually been there to talk to me, and that wherever he was he was happy, surrounded by family I had never met, living in a time when happiness came easily to him.
