      When I went to sleep I did my concentration and I also added the firm resolution to do that same concentration when I woke up at dawn.
      When I woke up at dawn and concentrated, I immediately noticed vibrations , I didn't pay attention to them and I kept concentrating, then very clear hypnagogia appeared, it seemed as if I were inside those images and then I had the sensation that I had displaced somewhere…
      The problem is that I don't remember it very well because I think it happened a couple of times but I fell asleep and I didn't write down at the time.

      A problem, yes. However, one you are aware of now, so next time you are more likely to make more efforts to retain recall even if you don't write it down at the time. It's a delicate thing, choosing when to write down recall, since it can interrupt flow of things too.

      The fact that you recall that something happened at all is good, I would say. I have lost many non-lucid dreams I would have liked to have written record of, and yet I feel that some part of me has internalised and preserved in some way the most interesting details, in a way that does not require my conscious recall.

      I will continue working on this line. Indeed, I believe that the achievements I obtain now are the basis for future successes!

      Tonight the level of concentration has not been very good , even so, I had a dream in which I had the impression that I was in control of what was happening , in the other dreams that I have remembered symbols of reunion with "someone", that I have known for a long time, appear and joy at the occurrence of that meeting...

      Something worth thinking about with regards to dream control; it is not something exclusive to a waking or conscious mind and so in other words it's not necessarily limited to lucid dreaming alone. That impression you had is exactly what makes non-lucid dream control a good cue to lucidity, because it can lead to rather unusual things in dreams and which couldn't possibly happen while waking. Changes in environment or other characters based on for example your will or thoughts, could be a good dream sign, should you be able to remember to be mindful about what it is that's happening.

      Hope your back is better! What exactly does the nighttime concentration practice include?

      What exactly does the nighttime concentration practice include?

      The procedure is, I think, rather simple:

      * I lie on the bed,
      * I close my eyes,
      * The environment should be calm and without distractions,
      * I focus on the back of my head just where the head touches the pillow,
      * I try not to think about nothing (the more inner silence I achieve, the better),
      * If my mind begins to disperse I return to concentration and inner silence.

      At some moments hypnagogic images appear and I try to observe them without getting involved. I maintain this procedure until I am tired and fall asleep or, if it lasts a long time, then I interrupt the process and try to fall asleep.

      I think it's important that I just keep that focus without having expectations about what might happen.

      As I have mentioned in other posts, it usually works in the first REM cycle and lately when I manage to do this procedure upon waking up during the night it also produces significant results.

      The main problem is that I don't always get the concentration to be correct and especially when I wake up during the night since I easily fall asleep and I don't perform the technique...

      I hope this explanation is understandable... (Sorry for my Google Translate English!)

      That sounds like a good technique indeed! It is simple but I think it can be quite powerful - focusing the mind while falling asleep can definitely work wonders .
