      Dodge631's Workbook


      Hello, I am Dodge631

      Sleep:
      I usually go to bed at around 11:00PM - 1:00AM and sleep in anywhere from 7:00AM - 10:00AM, usually closer to 10 on weekends and on some week days. and near 7 on other week days, and I prefer waking naturally.

      Reality Checks:
      Analog Clocks and watches, or Digital watches instead
      Questioning my current reality, "am i dreaming now?"
      RC after question
      Finger through hand occasionally
      trying to read text, then look away, then back more lately

      Dream Signs:
      Night Time (90% my dreams are at night)
      at the moment less are apparent

      Short Term Goals:
      Increase LD frequency
      Stabilize Dream
      Lengthen dream

      Long Term Goals:
      More than 1 LD a week
      Good stabilization
      long LD


      Current Techniques:
      DILD Method
      WILD Method
      Self-Awareness

      Welcome to Intro class Dodge631 and congrats on your first lucid dream! It must have been a very exciting experience. Really cool it was one of the early rem cycles too. You did quite a bit of exploring there, really good for a first ld.

      Last night was good. I did not have a lucid, but the dreams i had were pretty vivd, and i feel as though i was there in real life, one dream i almost remember completely except for some beginning details. i wrote quite a bit in my DJ today. maybe you can have a look and see how it is coming along? also, i included notes on new possible dream signs, speculation on dream changes, and how a supplement may be affecting me positively. all good things to keep note on, its on the bottom of the DJ. i think it would be helpful if you at least read the notes at the bottom but it is up to you!

      Hey there! About identifying potential dream signs and getting a grasp of what's going on in dreams as well as for ease of review, you can bold the different place, people, objects you encounter in dreams. That way they really stand out and also if you tag them the dream journal will make the ones that appear more often larger in tags. Then you can train during the day to recognize them. Think about them and remark that if you see them it may be a dream, do a RC. You can also use a mantra 'abandoned place', 'I'm dreaming' or something similar.

      Sorry to hear about the drop in recall. It's possible that it is just a normal fluctuation in recall. Have you done something different in the last couple of days that may be affecting your recall, like late bedtime, late night games, etc? Sleep schedule disruptions usually affect recall. Or maybe some food changes?

      Great tips, I always put tags of significant things in my dream journal. Most of the time, my dreams are at night. I mean like a lot of the time. However, i have noticed a change, since I began practicing ADA, and most of it is during the day due to being awake with more time in the light than the dark of night, my dreams have started being more and more in the day, tho i think i like night time ones better.

      Another thing i noticed a few days ago was feeling heat. When i feel objects in dreams, they are almost always cold ir have no feeling. In one of my dreams i put a banana on a high voltage raquet and it began warming up in my hand as i held it on the electricity.

      As for bad recall, i think it has been my sleep schedule. I have been going to bed late these past few nights, including last night due to long traveling. The only reason my recall was decent this morning was because I was woken mid dream and jumped right on my DJ in my phones notes. I was really tired still so i did not get down every detail this morning. Tonight i will be in a better sleeping situation regarding time i think. I will be in a different bed these next few days which has always affected my recall so i will have to see how it goes this week.

      Ok so last night i think i may have had a brief lucid dream, but i dont know if it was truly a lucid dream or if it was just a normal non lucid dream plot. I thought about it and said im dreaming but felt as though i still just went aling for the ride. Its the only major thing i remember from last night. Im not sure if i want to call it lucid or not. One thing was i didnt get that excited feel i should have with it being possibly my second one yet. Any thoughts on this?

      Sounds like a short moment of low level lucidity. Not bad at all. Next time think of the goal you want to accomplish, especially repeat it before falling asleep so when the lucid moment comes, you will detach from the dream scenario.

      Sounds good, im on vacation for a week and since i have been here my recall has been not so great. Im gunna use a sleep app on my phone to see how im sleeping (feels bed vibration consistencies i think) maybe thatll give me some insight. I wake really tired feeling, by that i mean im in a half sleep wanting to go back to sleep phase for a while. Im going to put focus to that tonight and maybe these bext few nights. Im only recalling 5 seconds or less these past few nights. Recall is tonights focus, if i do get lucid then great but if not ill still be trying hard to recall. I want to be able to have a detailed entry in the morning. Ill post an update if it works.

      As for todays update, i had good recall, 4 dreams total i wrote info down for but i could not remember all of them in extended detail. One came out pretty good though. Im surprised i remebered two of them, because i recalled them in my head then fell back asleep but remembered when i re woke. In the little nap i fell back asleep in i had more dreams. I dont know what causes my recall to slump badly sometimes. I have ruled out the melatonin because recall is great on it or bad on it randomly so it has not changed much.

      How about room temperature? During warmer nights my recall is significantly worse.

      last few DJ entries have been good, recall has been better, the problem i have is falling back to sleep after recalling, making recalling the whole dream harder and more broken up. now that recall is a little better ill put more focus back on lucid practice.

      You can try reminding yourself it was a dream, while recalling the previous dream in bed. If you fall asleep in the process, it might take you back to the same scene and you realize you're dreaming. Classic MILD.

      i was almost in despair this morning when i woke and could not remember hardly anything. i closed my eyes and asked myself "what was i dreaming about?" and sure enough it came back in full. as soon as one part came back the rest all came back and i remembered the very vivid dream i knew i had. as far as i can tell i'm recalling the dream from the start of it all the way to the end of that particular dream. This is good. im one step closer to LD each day i have a good recall and hope one appears soon!

      Another close call of forgetting my dream, then somehow pulling out the dream with very vivid images! Glad to know recall is good so far.
