      Arrow Lucidordie Intro Class Workbook

      Hi! Here is my workbook.

      Reality Checks:
      - Look at hand, count fingers
      - Nose plug, try breathing
      - look at text, clocks, look away, compare

      Dream Signs:
      - My dreams almost always happen during the night
      - Mom
      - Zombies
      - Girlfriend

      Short-Term Goals:
      - [X]get lucid
      - [X] find a "lucidity enhancement pill" in my pocket and eat it
      - [X] be able to do monthly goals
      - [ ] do 3 monthly goals in a row (1/3 done)
      - [ ] tell a DC that I am dreaming
      - [ ] do a reality check in my dream
      - [ ] Fly
      - [ ] Intercourse with a celebrity

      Long-Term Goals:
      - [ ] learn something meaningful about myself
      - [ ] attain lucidity at least once per week
      - [ ] create more long-term goals

      Lucid/Dream Recall History:
      - 2-3 times by accident when wasn't trying. Very non vivid. Not as satisfying as the next one.
      - about two years ago tried to attain lucidity and was successful. realized that things weren't normal in a dream, got lucid, and woke up from excitement. quit when things got tough at work, no time to keep journal.

      Current Technique:
      - DILD
      - DEILD - the 2-3 times by accident. were initially sex dreams that i wasn't ready to wake up from just yet.
      - RILD Can't post a link, cuz wasn't registered for over 3 days -failed miserably and lost 3 hours of sleep. Grumpy all day next day. (details in my DJ)

      Sleep duration:
      - Mon-Fri: 11pm-6:45am
      - Sat-Sun depends (midnight - 4am) - (9am-11am)

      Routine:
      - read my dream journal
      - pass out by 11
      - wake up 6:45 write in my journal
      - jump from joy all day cuz I had a lucid.

      Night 1: Zombie apocalypse

      Lucid, non-lucid

      Zombies are a reoccurring theme in my dreams. I remember this from my last go around.

      Someone else was in my dream, probably Iv. Iv and I are survivors. It felt like a video game rather than a movie. We would kill one and have time to talk. The next zombie wouldn’t show up until we were ready to move on. Remember one of the weapons I got to use. It was extremely heavy – the size of a baseball bat and looked like an old fashioned razor blade, the kind barbers use to shave their clients only oversized and with uneven blade.

      Initially we were in a building, but then made our way outside. It was sunny and reminded me of the vacation that I took in Dominican Republic. Palm trees, pools etc. Now that I think of it – it definitely was the base for my dreamscape.


      Attachment 6791

      As we were walking we stumbled on a camp of survivors near a swimming pool. The pool was without water and the whole area was divided in different territories. These territories were marked in chalk. The guy who claimed to be the owner of this pool, an old man with gray hair, tried to sell us space. He also pointed to an area where he drew up an advertisement, also in chalk. In addition to selling us space he offered us some sort of patrol job. This pool area was safe from zombies.

      What I found weird is that it changed from day to night quickly. I stumbled on this pool when it was initially light outside and by the time the guy was showing me his ad it was already dark.


      Remember waking up in this weird state of not remembering my dream and being disappointed, but I did not give up and eventually remembered. It is almost as though my brain threw that memory in trash because it didn’t happen.

      After writing this I went back to bed. I still had 30 minutes before I had to wake up. I knew this was a perfect opportunity to try one of the other techniques. I started on like 3-4 different dreams, but in all of them, while still conscious, I would catch my brain writing a scenario. As soon as I made that observation all my dream characters would just stop what they were doing - like robots that were suddenly unplugged.

      Night 2: Failed RILD

      Total sleep: 5 hours
      Daytime Techniques: Reality Checks. Asking myself whether or not this is a dream whenever something felt weird or randomly through out the day.

      I went to bed around 10:30 expecting to wake up at 6:45 to write in my journal. I also set an alarm for 6am to try RILD.

      Dream Title: Supernatural - fragment
      Spoiler for for full analysis:

      Woke up around 2am. Didn’t try to remember this supernatural dream because I was too excited to try RILD, which requires you to wake up right before your REM cycle and go to sleep immediately. Throughout the day I tried clapping my hands in order to establish a rhythm. To be honest I’ve done it only a few times because I thought I didn’t need to practice clapping. I knew if that didn’t work I could always just pretend i’m walking or snapping my fingers, whatever. Focusing too much on doing the clapping made me not sleepy and as a result I ended up staying up until about 3:30 am.

      Dream Title: Grandfather death threat
      Spoiler for for full dream:

      Dream Title: Beer run
      Spoiler for for full dream:

      My alarm wakes me at 6am. I try RILD only to run in the same problem as before. Any sort of motion I try to imagine just makes me more awake. Am I not ready to try this? Is it just one bad experience since my sleep wasn’t that strong anyway? Apparently I snoozed instead of shutting the alarm off, so it rings again at 6:09. Then my girlfriend’s alarm finishes off any hopes of salvaging another dream at 6:30.

      Being able to recall multiple dreams is definitely an improvement.

      Total sleep: 6.5 hours
      Daytime Techniques: Reality Checks. All day awareness. Dream Yoga for an hour after work.


      Spoiler for My boring non-lucid:


      Woke at 4 am to write things down. Woke up eyes closed, did reality check nose plug. Success!!!!! Never in my life have I remembered to RC upon waking up. Went to bed disappointed about how little I could remember, but believing that the night is young and i could still lucid.



      Dream Title: Playboy Mansion
      Dream: I’m at my Mom’s place. It is night out (dream sign) we are talking about something. Somehow I notice that something is weird. I don’t remember if I did a reality check. But I got lucid. Holy shit. Everything around me was so real. It’s like it morphed immediately. I touch the wall, the door. I go outside. It is still night. Shit shit shit what do I do? Lucidity starts to fade. I remember my goals. I recall reading that lucidity increases if I simply take a lucid pill out of my pocket and eat it. I reach in my right pocket and there it is. A magical lucid pill along with bunch of crap like coins or whatever. The lucid pill looked average in size and it had words on it “Lucidity pill” or “lucid pill.” This blew my mind. I took it and all of a sudden the lucidity increased. Everything around me stabilized. Goal of the month of March was to ask a dream character about their middle name. I run inside and ask my mom what is her’s. She goes “D….” (don’t want to mention it here because that is her real last name. Very unimpressive. I don’t waste another second in the house. I run outside like that disney princess who was singing “A whole new world!”

      I come to some sort of playground. The stars look so beautiful like from that TV series “Cosmos.”

      I think to myself that since this is my first real long vivid lucid everything at this point is bonus, no more requirements. I decide that I want it to be day time (I’ve had enough nights in my non lucid dreams) and I want to go to Playboy mansion. I close my eyes and spin around and when I open here I am. Hugh Hefner is giving an interview by the pool surrounded by girls. Somehow at this point the “rules of the game” were made known to me. The way things worked is that Hugh gives out a golden medal to a girl he likes the most, the girl who he is currently fucking. I don’t know where the understanding of these rules came from and I would be very curious to find out. I play along.
      (Looking back at this moment I think I should have started by dictating my own rules, but then again may be playing along is what made the dream longer and more stable.... no regrets) I come up to him and take the medal from his neck. It is thick, heavy, and gold, the kind pimps would wear. I start looking around at different girls. I examine them so closely that it would be extremely embarrassing IWL. None of them are particularly attractive, not hideous but very average with different flaws. "I thought this was a dream?”- I think to myself. I forgot if I ended up giving the medal to somebody or what but next thing I remember I went up the stairs and went into a bathroom. Hugh is there cleaning the toilet. I mock him and he sprays me with water. At this point I am becoming aware that I need to do something else and this lucid isn’t infinite. I run downstairs and do something (forgot by now) but eventually I interrupt my dream by moving my foot IWL.

      At this point the dream is still somehow in front of me since I didn’t open my eyes, but I can not get back into it.

      Vividness: (scale of 1-15, 10 is waking life vividness) 10-11
      Awareness: (1-10; or lucid) Lucid
      Length: 60 mins
      Emotions: Happy, Euphoria, Excited
      Dream Signs: Night, Mom

      Woke up 5:15am. Wrote down my dream until 5:45. Tried going back to sleep but too excited. My recall still sucks and with more practice It should improve. I’m surprise how little I actually remember of a dream that was soooo vivid and 100% accessible to me. By little I mean relatively to what I could.


      ANY TIPS OR POINTERS?????

      Some quick analysis of my first vivid long lucid:

      • ADA worked immediately? My third night trying to LD worked. (first night after trying to ADA) I guess it will be more clear when I LD next.
      • Dream Yoga for beginners is nice in general, not just for lucid dreaming
      • Having goals set in your mind make your lucid dream go smoother and feel more satisfying
      • Set more goals
      • Does not having goals and simply letting the dream flow prolong it?
      • I am really curious how did the "rules" get set when I got to the Playboy mansion.





      Any feedback is GREATLY appreciated
