      My tinitus is minimal so it doesn't bother me, it comes from listening to music and my loud work place (vents, gas burners, plates and pots clashing etc.) it is just there enough that I can focus on it which seemed to help more than hinder my last WILD attempt. As the noises got worse I was definitely considering ear-buds haha, I was thinking I could just pop some headphones in with some soft and gentle music on low volume but I didn't want to break my physically relaxed state.


      Anyway, despite not knowing how I would go I managed to record 2 NDs from last night, I ate a banana and 100mg B-6 before bed which may have helped me with melatonin and seratonin levels to maintain a vivid-ness that I was able to recall. I remember waking up briefly between the dreams and I meditated for a short while on the firs one hoping to DEILD back into another dream and gain lucidity, I guess that is why I also remember it better than the Walter White dream which I woke from to an alarm.

      I feel better rested with 7 solid hours of sleep, feeling good enough for a 13 hour shift at work anyway... yay.

      Happy dreaming friends

      That's great that you've considered using it as a focus point! Have you tried using mantras to maintain your awareness? Music won't effect it I don't think. I sometimes use music when I meditate, I let the soothing sounds wash over my body and it puts me in a very relaxed state but everyone is different. Maybe you could give a try next time and let me know if it works out for you.

      Since I'm learning to DILD, I practice intensity in the day time, so i don't think a WBTB is necessary for me. I let myself wake up nautrally, sometimes an alarm can be very startling and can keep me awake!

      When I WBTB I am usually awake anyway. I notice most of my microwakenings and can register up to about eight, despite not recalling any dreams some nights. The difference I have noticed really is that some nights I will recall a dream, wake up and record it (in my scribble pad) then go back to sleep moments later. If I wake and don't immediately fall asleep, I try to get up, drink some water, visit the restroom (without turning on the light) and then try to WILD. I still can't get it right, I almost always wind up never falling asleep until I fully give up. at least I have some really strange dreams which are always fun to recall if I can.

      Anyway, time to dream some more, maybe I lucid tonight... F*ck it, I will. Let you know how that sh*t goes tomorrow

      I did get it right before, only a few times though, and now this happens to me too all the time. I feel that I'm less aware in my RL than I was when I succeeded.

      Good luck!

      Just recorded an absolute monster of a dream, can't tell whether or not it was one long one, multiple with smooth transitions or just my perception of time. started foggy with the cards at the beginning but when I think back on it I am amazed at how vivid it was after I bumped into Leila.

      I have been doing my best to keep my mindfulness up during the day but lately I have been exhausted. I know if I were more mindful by habit I would have become lucid last night, especially in such a long and vivid dream. Beginning to wish I had taken an elevator at some point, I would have RCd.

      Nights before days off always seem to yield the best results, even if I give myself time to record dreams and such before going to work on work days, I think it has more to do with my mindset on those nights, I generally am worrying less about work and things that could go wrong. I guess I will have to study that mindset during meditation and practice replicating it EVERY night.

      I'm exactly the same at the moment - exhausted from work and not getting any good night's sleep. I make the best progress when I'm not at work.

      Also so annoyed that I had to go into work at the weekend yesterday I got to the end of the day and realised that I hadn't thought about LDing once all day or done any RC's. Sometimes real life gets in the way of this.

      Having said that I had my first ever lucid moment (that's about all I can call it) last night so not all bad.

      Keep up the good work.

      Hi smudge, it's great to hear about your lucid moment, I will look for it later when I am on my PC. Currently having a few bevvies after work. What. A. Week.

      75 hours down and I can't stop thinking about it. Still paranoid I missed something tonight that will make the world end tomorrow, Head Chef off sick 99.99% of the week and had to pull miracles from my *rs* to keep the place upright.

      RCd maybe 12 times but feel it was more from habit than actually questioning reality, though I know I did thoroughly. Like right now.

      Any way, tonight, I alcohol. I have had lucids when deadly drunk but I don't condone attempting it. Never. Ever. Try to out drink a Chef.

      I was a junior doctor in the days before the European Working Time Directive became law. Done Saturday morning to Monday night working solid with no sleep before, then back on Tuesday morning for more of the same. That was punishing, if not actual torture, it was certainly slave labour. Feel sorry for you though, 75hrs is a long week, I do about 60hrs at the moment (part time).

      Gave up drinking large amounts of alcohol some time ago.

      Congrats on the ld, Smudge!

      By the way, what's with the sig, maybe something more inspiring would be more appropriate?

      Two dreams last night, one was a little chaotic while the other was about chaos. I'm feeling more aware when I dream, which is great and is definitely testament to my day work growing stronger. I no longer have to keep LD on the very front of my mind to remember at random intervals to RC which means it isn't getting in the way of work. My diet has also become very high in tryptophan loaded foods, actually that reminds me, I have to buy some bananas today, I found that two out of two nights I eat a banana for dessert my dreams are far more vivid and much easier to recall accurately and in correct chronological order.

      PROGRESS!

      I congratulated smudge in his work book for his lucid moment and I will say it again here, well done mate! it is encouraging to see other people progress and helpful to see that they may have tried something I didn't think of. I hope my progressions and posts are helping others as much as theirs are mine.

      Another big dream last night hailing back to an old 'series' of dreams I was having about a decade ago, well sorta anyway. Plenty of dream fragments that I DID remember before I started recording and focussing on the big one. I wound up losing the others, I'm sure if I watch my thoughts dart around I could find them but at the moment that isn't so important to me, except for what I do remember in at least two of the fragments was me telling myself I should RC.

      Telling myself I should RC in dreams and not doing it is getting old fast. Maybe when I am by myself I should say "I should RC" out loud before actually doing it? I'll give that a whirl and see how it goes.

      Vehicles are making more of an appearance in my dreams again, Making sure to RC when I see a motorcycle and use the elevator is doing something I guess. It's not so much the RC as the fact that when I see a motorcycle I question whether it actually is or whether it is a scooter, then I RC any way. Street signs and branding on cars that aren't moving, I almost always double-take now after the number plate jig in one of my previous dreams.

      I also find that when RCs are slow, I go into a 'stand by mode' where I will do my standard quick pinch-test, sometimes in waking life I don't manage to hurt myself with it and automatically stop and ask myself a few questions while trying to change things around me with my mind. I kind of like that I automatically RC and register when it fails EVEN in real life and switch into 'online mode' if you would like where I go crazy with the RRC.

      //Just remembered a lucid fragment, gonna leave this note here and edit it when I'm at my PC. DEILD into my dream had a gun at my head, first round misfired and realised I was dreaming. Managed to static out of it.

      //Expanding on my note: so I realise how I forgot this despite it being lucid, it was so short and not long after
      I went into multiple fast paced and scattered dreams, it also triggered chaos in my sleep patterns after which were quite odd.


      DEILD from last dream, honestly wasn't too sure if it worked but started on the driveway of the compound the dream was based in, almost worked out to be an 'alternate ending'.
      I'm in the driveway walking up and away from the complex when James calls out to me.
      "Hey... Thanks." he calls,
      "For what?" I reply.
      "You saved her, you could have just told me she was dead and I would have believed you."
      I nod and turn away again, starting for the end of the drive when the chain-link gate closes and a man approaches. He has a small pistol and aims it at James, who is now right next to me some how.
      I forget what it is but he is demanding something of James and apparently I know the answer too, so he turns the gun on me. We both sit on something next to each other and the man gets up behind me and pushes the barrel of the pistol hard into the back of my head at the top of my spine. It feels so real. He pushes harder as he shouts his demand at James and then me, waiting for one of us to answer. neither of us speak up, I don't want him to and I won't give it up either despite our previous differences.
      The man twists the pistol deeper into my flesh and squeezes the trigger, it draws blank despite me seeing a flash of gunpowder and feeling some force, maybe it wasn't blank and I just can't die...

      'I'm dreaming', I say to myself,'it's the only explanation, I calm myself and start to breathe deeply and relax. I close my eyes and try to think of a way out, I can't think of anything immediate but I do try to wake myself up. slowly the black of my eyelids turns to static, like on your T.V. then... just black.

      After this was a short period of being awake and I went to sleep straight after. That was stressful, but I was lucid and I dealt with it. the rest of the night was high octane dream fragments I barely recall. Mind you I may still yet, it took me half a day to recall this...

      Okay, so that is up after some extra meditation to make sure I didn't miss anything, although I still feel there was more to it than that... hell, I was lucid for some of it so who really cares.

      Anyway, despite having work tomorrow I am repeating exactly what I have done the past two nights and am going to challenge myself with three consecutive nights in a row with decent dream recall. Expecting lucid, just to set a high bar, but will be stoked with a decent dream fragment seeing as I do have work in the morning, which usually kills it. Tonight will be different though, I can feel it!

      Okay so I am actually walking on my way to work as I write this so please forgive any spelling mistakes until I get a chance to edit the post latee on my P.C.

      2 NDs last night, was good, though one was a minecraft dream and I can never be bothered writing them down, way too hard to describe, although I will say the world had a hole in the middle with an island for the spawn point and a team joined our server, we watched them struggle to get to our part of the world and that's when I remembered pvp was enabled, next I'm running throughtunnels of lava with back flowing water to keep me from burning.

      I attempred to DEILD from that, but the chaotic build style of the world was too difficult and complex to remember and correctly visualize, a fitful dream instead, don't remember much but I remember going to RC and my real body moved and I woke up.

      Anyway the next one was shorter than the minecraft one but it was more detailed, I will exoand on it later when I have time but here's the gist of it.

      On a farm, same one I normally dream about, paddocks are all different, we are having some sort of party (better be lucid with hobbits next time :p) and two of the kids run off with a flaming torch, it's fire ban season and there is kilometres and kilometres of dead grass and dry shrubbery, I tell them to stop running around with fire or they could start a bush fire but they don't listen. One gets away from me and when he thinks I'm not looking throws it in a tree. Long part short managed to call fire brigade, was a local volunteer service and the trucks weren't red, white with CFBB which apparently stood fir country fire services. The fire explodes into a huge fire and I go back to the farm house to get everyone safe, kid with cobwebs in side room. I wole to my alarm, turned it off and went back to sleep, the fire is out and the fireys are at the farm thanking me for calling them "no way they were going to put that out themselves without a water truck" I say, Rick Grimes is there and it is apparent he owns the farm now and the fore fighters give him a bond for helping put the fire out, it's pink and I remember seeing him not want to take it off he's so proud. Th fireys say we should have a bbq some time and I say I'll be back fown in 3 months, fireban will be over and we should have a real bonfire, the firets laugh and the warden's wife shakes her head at me.
      Then I snap awake and get ready for work.

      Well, unfortunately due to a busy days work and no real relaxation time I can barely recall any of the above dreams. They will both go into my DJ as is though.

      Just signed up for the Spellbee2's Spring Competition! Thanks for alerting me to it's existence and impending launch Hirondelle!

      I see that even dream fragments are scored, I'm going to have to put in a lot more work then, I don't usually make too much effort to record frags, I even had that lucid frag which had it not come from another dream I probably wouldn't have recorded it. I did have a few fragments last night, tagged them at each waking but I hit a wall in the memory department when the wrecking-ball of all non-dreams happened, not too sure how to describe it or what it is but I've had it more than a few times.

      So I might be dreaming right? I can sort of see things but it's not about the seeing it's about simply knowing what is going on around me. I have been getting one a night lately and if I get i later on into REM I can wind up not remembering anything. Anyhow I usually work out I am dreaming, the problem is if I try to RC mentally I can't do anything, if I try to RC physically my real body moves and I wake up. Thinking about it now, maybe I am in the late stages of HI? Seeing as my body is still functional but I am 'seeing' a dream? (very fuzzy dream usually)

      The more I think about it the more I start to see of my dreams again from last night actually, I don't have too long before work, I do have tomorrow off which will be good for me to try some things too.

      I guess I could say I became lucid last night, I RC'd and it failed and knew I was dreaming, but my attempts to fly (I got a tingle but that was it) and levitate things failed and I lost the lucidity. I can't even remember the setting of that one, I was in a house but I think I failed because I didn't first stabilize the dream.

      TO THE DJ!

      Chicken for dinner (like, seriously, a whole chicken), B-6 for dessert. Lucid dream, here I come!

      So lately I have been struggling a little bit but making new and interesting ground at the same time. I really hope that this goes somewhere.

      I am sticking with DILD for now and attempting DEILDS at any opportunity that arises. Had a lucid fragment with DEILD which lasted maybe a minute and also had another lucid fragment within a NLD, Kinda don't want to note them on my count because I really had very little control over these dreams, or at least the parts I was lucid in.

      I have noticed that vividness has been hovering high enough on average for me to really notice things are off, even if they don't get me lucid, I have dreamt once about getting lucid and I have had what I think are HI where I think I'm dreaming but move to RC and move in real life, waking me up.

      Joined Spellbee2's Spring Comp and haven't done too well yet, I have a plan for tonight though and it involves exercise and tryptophan loaded foods along with a relatively early night to bed. I am definitely going to attempt a WBTB, even if it doesn't work I could do with the points for my team.

      I am adamant on getting lucid this week, it will happen and I know it will because I want it to!

      It's definitely going somewhere as you are getting lucid . At any rate, I'd recommend keeping the DILD practices as they give a great foundation even for wilds.

      I still can't even fathom WILD, I mean I have managed one DEILD once which resulted in a lucid frag, but it was so surreal I think I was more freaked out by it. I mean I had a gun to my head pretty much as soon as I got in and all I could do to get out of the situation was to close my eyes and create static.

      I seem to not be able to get to HI stage, and with the competition on I would like to try and succeed with a WBTB as well as DILD.

      If you can manage to incorporate wbtb in your routine, it will definitely be helpful for both dilds and wilds. Actually, a lot of my wilds were more accidental than planned due going overboard the wbtb timing. Not something I would recommend if you're prone to insomnia or lacking in time, but it proves a point.

      Been a bit slack posting in here with the dream comp on atm, got me a copy of laberge's book and read the forst chapter already, it's getting me pumped for tonight! I get to sleep in and I'm copying some dreams from my handwritten to my e-DJ tonight before bed so that will help too! Thanks nyxc! I accidentally wbtb'd last night then woke to my actual alarm and did another intentional one, didn't get much from it but fourth or fifth noght wbtb in a row and my body seems ready to almost do it without an alarm! I'm curious if a small amount of caffein just before bed can keep the mind's alertness up without kicking the body into gear before it falls asleep too, when the comp is over I might experiment with that...

      Sorry to hear you got locked out of your house. That was a bummer. Unless of course you got to sleep with a blonde instead

      Well the competition is over for me so posting here again will become a regular occurrence again, at least daily.
      Going to get about 10 hours of 'sleep allocated' time tonight, I plan on listening to LaBerge's Trance Induced Lucid Dreaming track on repeat as I go to sleep after I have a much needed shower and some dinner.

      The story behind my lock out, have a laugh I'm not ashamed hehe.

      So I left work, had a dreading sense of 'something forgotten', RCd at least, I recall often finding I get those sensations in dreams. Turns out the thing I had forgotten were my keys, they were still in my locker at work in the fully closed up venue but didn't realise until I was metres from the fromt door to my apartment building. I tried to summon keys from my pocket in case I was dreaming, unfortunately I wasn't. Luckily for me I had picked up some food on my way home from work, so I didn't go hungry, but I returned to work and let myself over a wall into the enclosed dock area and managed to set up a makeshift bed and slept moderately uncomfortably for about four hours until I woke and waited for the manager on duty this morning to turn up and let me in to begin the day's work.
      Even then, I hoped for a lucid hoping and truly believing that an uncomfortable sleep could trigger a lucid as I hear that sleeping in chairs sitting up or in positions that are hard to actually get to sleep in can cause the mind to wake partially during sleep but no such luck for me.

      I'm exhausted now, in need of a shower and am saturating my self with ideas for a dream. I was surprisingly aware throughout the day and I have had at least one successful lucid from falling asleep exhausted. (Happened on my holiday in my first lucid, I remember Iwas out fishing all day and was partially sunburned from the day out.) I will check back in the morning before I leave for work
