      Draeger's Workbook

      Reality Checks:
      - Nose plug
      - Finger push through
      - Trying to change something

      Dream Signs:
      - Being at home
      - I often encounter beings inspired or entirely taken from Subnautica and areas inspired or taken from Subnautica
      - I often encounter various creatures, which are neither animal nor human. Often demons.
      - Supercell thunderstorms appear somewhat often.

      Short-Term Goals:
      - Getting at least a bit more aware in my dreams
      - Managing to consistently practice all day awareness
      - Getting over my fear of being alone.
      - Explore the dreamscape.
      - Once I can get okay-ish long lucid dreams, I will start practicing transformation.

      Long-Term Goals:
      - Having multiple lucid dreams every day
      - Having very long lucid dreams
      - Mastering the art of dream control
      - Specifically, I'd like to master the art of transformation.

      Lucid/Dream Recall History:
      - I had a single lucid dream I could confirm was a lucid dream. Sadly, it was a nightmare and the first thing I did, nearly instinctively, was to wake myself up.
      It was also many years ago. Since then I had dreams that might have been lucid, but something felt off with them, so I regard them as non-lucids.
      - I barely ever remembered any dream before I started with lucid dream practice. But now I very often remember dreams. I had a 7 day recall streak,
      sometimes even remembering more than one dream per day, once 3 in a single day, 2 of which I recalled nearly entirely that day.

      Current Technique:
      - All day awareness
      - WBTB
      - MILD

      I don't have a specific time I always go to sleep to, and it's only at unhealthy times from 2-5 AM so I am doing the first steps to change that. I will change that, hopefully already tomorrow.

      I hope I did everything right. I'm excited to start.

      Day 1:
      Yesterday I tried MILD as I went to sleep, with the mantra "I will have a lucid dream.". I don't remember the most prominent dream I had then more than a white object in the shape of a line, though, so i can't say if it worked. I also wanted to visualize a dream, but I either fell asleep before I thought that the mantra was enough or I just forgot.

      I think I am going to try and think about something to keep me slightly awake as I have heard is a tool with WILD, and then try and do the mantra, then visualize a dream where I think I am dreaming and do a reality check that will work.

      I will go to sleep at around 1 AM now.

      Day 2:
      I went to sleep at 1 AM, tried MILD. and woke up completely at 1 PM. I used the mantra "I will have a lucid dream." again. I woke up multiple times throughout the night, but I forgot doing a reality check, so if anything was a false awakening, I missed a great chance. Tonight I will do another MILD attempt, but this time with the mantra "I will have a lucid dream or do a reality check if I wake up."

      I am also practicing my prospective memory during waking life using the method described in the MILD tutorial on the wiki.

      I remembered to reality check I think 13 times, and I forgot about 3 times. Today I will go to bed at a bit later than 2 AM, I forgot to go to sleep at 1 AM.

      Day 3:
      I tried MILD as I fell asleep. I did the mantra as said yesterday, but I either fell asleep too quickly or didn't remember visualizing. I had multiple awakenings, and I did reality checks, but none of the awakenings turned out false, at least according to my reality check.

      I am going to do MILD like somebody else in another thread did. I will use my hands as a prospective memory trainer and as an ADA reminder tomorrow and even as a reality check reminder. I will use the mantra "When I see my hands I will realize I am dreaming.".
