      Day 2. Three dreams tonight,was woken up from the last one. Kinda curious if you can be woken up from a LD?(if so,any experience of how it feels would be nice) Ide imagine you could. After I woke,I cant be certain but seemed abit I was woken up from that point of lucidity where you havent realized youre lucid,and youre acting out the dream as though youre not lucid,and just havent realized you are yet. If that makes any sense. slept for about 10hrs. Fell asleep practicing the Dream Yoga technique,being aware of my body. Will try it again tonight before bed,along with the same techniques through out the day again as Day 1. Today when I woke up,ide just left a dream,but couldnt remember any of them,and had thought I didnt have any that night at all,until I woke up abit more,and layed in bed a few minutes,where they began rushing back to me. Created a 2nd DJ on my pc,to write down things from my dreams I remember throughout the day,or dont come to me when im writing in my physical DJ.

      Day 3. Slept 9 hrs. One long Vivid Dream. Recall no change,still good detail. Kinda annoyed I didnt realize I was dreaming last night,as normally,nothing crazy happens to trigger it,but I shouldve realized it this night. Increasing my Reality Checks today,aswell as taking the approach of reality checking even in 'normal' situations,since my brain doesnt register 'normal' or 'not normal' just yet while dreaming. also reworking my night time routine,any suggestions would be welcomed. As of now,i simply choose A sign,color(to look for when im dreaming),and what I want to do once I go lucid as an mantra,followed by dream yoga awareness. Ill probaly add WBTB tonight,see if it jump starts anything. Didnt work in the past,as I think I need an extremely short WBTB,around 5-10mins at most. So,ill give that a try.

      Day 4. slept 9hrs,dream continue to be more and more vivid. 2 extremely long dreams. Recall the same,couldnt remember much,tends to happen when im awoken from dreams,which I was again. Need to fix that. Staying with the same techniques and such,decided to not change them up too much for this first week or two,in order to actually give them some time. WBTB failed,didnt wake up,will try again tonight.

      Day 5. Slept for 15 mins,than 4hrs until WBTB,didnt stay awake long enough,so that was another fail. I only remember fragments of dreams. Dream Yoga induced images of dreams as I layed in bed,when I focused on being aware of my forehead,and my actual eyes. Was similar to having a light shined on them,even though the room was dark. so,thats something. will continue on with my current techniques.

      Day 6. slept for about 11hrs. Cant remember any of my dreams,aside for a short false awakening. Abit of Dream Yoga awareness before bed. Phone died,so WBTB failed once again. Will probaly put it off until next week,as I need the uninterrupted sleep these new few days.

      This sounds like a precursor state to a wild. You may practice visualization during the day or at bedtime and see where that takes you.

      Day 10. Noticed that these "long dreams" are multiple dreams tieing together. They remain to become more and more vivid,but my dream awareness is barely non existant,might give Wild as try as suggested. I started with DILD because when I first had a lucid,it happened after ide been trying than gave up,than out of no where LUCID. so ill begin researching WILD,while practicing the other Dild and dream yoga techniques I had to put on hold.

      Just to point out, vivid dreams actually indicate high dream awareness. What's non-existent is your memory of dreaming. Once your dream awareness reminds you of dreaming, it will activate your memory of dreaming and cause you to become lucid. Identifying your chances you missed to become lucid like in day 9 should help with this by helping you associate those dreams signs with dreaming which helps you identify them when they or something similar comes up in the future.

      Thank you for the clarification,Dolphin. I understand what you're saying,and will begin to add those instances where I missed going lucid as dream signs when I log my dreams in my DJ. Didnt have A section for that,but should be helpful. Will also poke around for additional methods to resolve this.

      After looking more into wild,I noticed ide been trying alot of the steps needed to wild. Just not in the right order,or time(rem cycle). So ill definately be giving that a try soon.

      Sounds good. I would recommend to also keep up the day practices fo DILD as they are helpful for awareness in general.

      Day 11. Im aware that i dremt,but cant remember any of the dreams,or emotions tied to them. Apparently I tossed and turned,even accidently kicked the gf according to her. Will be fixing my sleeping schedule today,so I'll hold off on Wild for A day or two,and continue to focus on Dild in the meantime.

      Day 12. Ended up staying up all night,near 5-6 AM I began falling asleep,and my gf waking me up,as we were both trying to stay awake so we could fix our sleeping schedules and goto the movies Thursday(tomorrow). Eventually she wanted to goto the store,so she scould make breakfast,and of course,I fell asleep in bed until she came back. This was no longer than about an hr,but I had about 2 short ones and 1 'average' one. I had a few times to lucid,and didnt,but after Dolphins advice,they seemed to stand out more. During and after the dream. also stumbled across some reality checks that I could begin trying from them. And not sure what to take from some. In the last dream,there was a point where I and a dream character I didnt recognize,stared at each other long and hard without saying anything. Last time I did this,I had my first lucid,no luck this time,but atleast its happened again and had that same.. I guess 'feeling' when it happened. In this same dream,I was fiddling with some light switches,which can be RCs but arent 'one of mine' I do,ever,but will begin doing them along with the mirror RC whenever im near a bathroom. Havent read about the light switch rc in awhile now,so that was odd,but who knows. In the 2nd dream,its was abit hazy but basicly I dont remember being lucid,but I do remember conscious thought of whether I wanted to 'go this way,or that way'. Nothing really as far as why,but just the ability to choose. which seemed odd,since I was moving pretty fast,but everytime I passed a option to turn,or split paths,I would be choosing. In the last dream,I just find it interesting. When I arrived,I remember a dream character asking me about my 'birthday party' which should had been a 'wtf' moment,since I havent thrown a birthday party since I was about 13? ,but I thought for a 2nd,and recalled a vivid memory of a birthday party from the night before(day 11 aware I dremt,but cant remember them),to the point I was embarrassed for the people to know about it when the person I showed up with started explaining,that I cut him off from explaining. Today I recalled my dreams backwards. Last,to first. to see if it would help me retain the dream better,as I usually back track my previous events to question my reality along with counting fingers RC. seemed to work well,aslong as I didnt stress over remembering something that wasnt too meaningful. Depending If plans tomorrow for movies are still in place,I may or may not attempt to wild tonight.

      Day 13. Wild was succesful I think? I had lucid dream tonight,just not sure what was the cause. I fell asleep in bed while trying to find a wild tutorial (on DV ) on my phone to read during my WBTB,when I fell asleep,it was earlier than ide liked,so I woke up around 2 am. Got up,used the bathroom,went for a smoke,drank some water,talked to the gf who was playing her pc game while I found said tutorial on my pc this time,afterwards went back to bed (about 15mni or so process). Did all the steps WILD steps,until I was laying in bed,tossed a turned abit and somewhat gave up,but simply focused on being more relaxed and some dream yoga techniques. Theres a gap in memory,but eventually I remember the sounds from the other room(her game,and the TV) were extremely loud,louder than when I were using them for one the Dream Yoga awareness techniques. I tried to get out of bed,and opened my eyes but instead kinda leap with no control towards the wall(the headboard of my bed is against a wall,but I sleep at the foot),noticed my vision was pretty messed up as my room is dark(naturally) ,this freaked me out,and kinda reset me back in my bed? but still dreaming. I "woke up again" things seemed abit more normal,and as I walked into the next room other I was making sense of what had happened and basically concluded I sucked because I missed a chance to lucid if ide stayed calmer. But once I got into the other room I realized I was lucid,explored the dream scape outside,flew around,noticed alot of it wasnt filled in,compared to the other time I went lucid. Abit nerve wrecking at times,because I always think my body is talking,moving, or yelling in waking. I eventually got trapped? I was planning on flying to a park,but it didnt work,so I decided ide try learning to teleport there. Lol I closed my eyes and thought super hard about the location,and its direction. I laugh because I imagine myself looking like Hiro from heroes. but I ended up this weird looking bathroom ,I looked around,and when I did,the exit that was there before was now gone. so I walked forward abit to check it out,and there was this odd dream character there,,talking to me in the lowest voice until idk if he made me non lucid,but my dream ended. Anywho. Thanks to DV Academy,NyxCC, and Dolphin for my 3rd lucid.

      Day 14. Long vivid dream,no Dild,as I needed all my rest today,so I didnt attempt a Wild,but still points in the dream where I couldve went lucid,so continuing to mark those down,to hopefully pick up on them and begin Dild'ing more,since thats my ideal method. Didnt get to do any awareness of sorts before bed as I fell asleep watching a show,but will probaly attempt to wild tonight,as that was my plan last night,but didnt get to fulfill my before bed routine.
