      Blandarn's Workbook

      From no experience at all with lucid dreams, other than a few times being able to fly (caused by lucidity? I don't know) and reaching the awareness of being in a dream and instantly waking up. I realize that I don't have much of dream recall to brag about.
      With this said,

      My short-term goals are:
      -Getting my dream recall up to at being able to recall at least 2 dreams per night, 1 of them being vivid and with much detail
      -Getting my first LD before the end of May
      -Fly again, with great recall of it

      Long-term goals:
      -3 Solid LD's per week with great recall
      -Building on my awareness and meditation skills
      -Being able to explore and experiment with my fears through LD's

      Reality Checks:
      -Pressing finger through my palm
      -Nose pinch
      -Looking at my hands
      -Looking at my clock

      Induction technique(s):
      -DILD or MILD, because I've been responding good to auto-suggestion before
      -Looking into how I can complement that with WILD or WBTB
      -A real interest for the Dream Yoga class, maybe not right away, but as soon as I reach my short-term goals, getting some small wins to motive me.

      Looking forward to a interesting journey into my subconscious!

      So, after 3 nights with almost no dream recall whatsoever, I'll redirect my attention.
      My quest now is to ONLY work on my recall.

      Between dec-feb this last year I had some what better recall, through suggestion and some other factors which I will start investigating now.
      Journaling may have had something do to with it. I'll post my findings, successes, and failures here.
      Can it be harder now because I'm to eager to move forward with all the amazing information I constantly find here on DV?
      We'll see. But very soon my recall rate will rise again!

      First LD!! :D

      I experienced my first LD!

      With my bad recall in mind I took real action yesterday:
      • No caffeine from noon
      • No screen time 1,5 hour before bed
      • Wrote in both my journal and DJ before going to bed
      • Meditated and did solid affirmations 30 minutes before going to sleep


      After I dropped my intention of having a LD and just focusing on my DR, it still came tonight.
      I cannot say that my dream recall become much better, but I had some! I woke up at one time during the night with a dream in my mind. I put my attention to it, thinking about it, getting ready to write down keywords in my DJ. But i fell asleep again before I had the time to write
      The dream I had in mind wasn't my LD, or that's what I think. It bugged the hell out of me when I woke up this morning remembering nothing at all from it.
      But suddenly, when making my morning coffee, I remembered how I had realized I was dreaming tonight.

      *I was somewhere, going some place...
      I think it was in a forest, or something alike.
      I have the feeling of knowing where I was headed, when i suddenly came to a bar of some sort. The bar was open, maybe 1.5 square meters, two walls, no roof, and some strange girl wiping a glass clean behind the counter. Did I ask for directions? "Oh, am I dreaming? Its strange, can a bar be here? Like this? In the forest? It doesn't look like a bar at all?! I HAVE TO BE DREAMING!!" Some amazing feeling washed over me as I realized I had just became lucid. No RC. I got anxious that me being to exited would wake me up. I said something to the girl, she looked up again, and I jumped over the counter and kissed her. I then have some vague memory that something more happened, but I can't remember. I think that the dream took over and went on its way again.

      This was a big motivation for me. But still, I have to work on my DR first. One step at a time
