      Reality Checks:
      -plugging nose
      -Asking myself what I was doing

      Dream Signs:
      -My best friend
      -If im in a car, im not the one driving

      Short-Term Goals:
      -have at least 2 controlled LDs per week
      -Get used to ADA
      -Meditate 5 mins per day

      Long-Term Goals:
      -At least 4 controlled LDs a week
      -Integrate ADA into my everyday life
      -Get better at visualization

      Lucid/Dream Recall History:
      -Maybe 4 or 5 dreams (or fragments) recorded per day. In the past two days I have been setting my alarm for 5 hours and some minutes, but I think this has negatively impacted my recall as I barely end up with anything to recall. I will try going back to the 4 hour mark and see if the recall comes back.

      Current Technique:
      -Currently trying to WILD and MILD
      I tried WILD for the first time today and I think I had problems because of the anchor (my breathing). I will keep trying it for 1 week, if I dont see any improvements I will try to SSILD

      Day 1:
      Went to bed earlier because I was tired but still managed to wake up at the same time I usually do. Woke up about an hour before I set my alarm (naturally) and then missed my alarm. Recalled three non lucid dreams with good details so I guess today wasnt a complete failure.

      Day 2:
      Was browsing reddit and read about FILD so I decided to try it, and it worked! (almost :p). I found myself in the hypnagogia phase (tingles, shapes) two or three times and messed it up every time because I was too excited/scared. I felt this way going to sleep when I first started attempting to LD so I dont think this should be a huge problem to get over. As for recall, I couldnt recall any dreams, just some fragments D:

      Day 3:
      Took a long nap and had a false awakening which had SP and loud buzzing noises that I thought (in the FA) would be followed by a LD.
      I had 4 dreams in the dream (all very short), but they all felt like I was just visualizing/thinking about them instead of actually seeing them. The thing I had set out to do kinda happened, but the dream was in no way under my control. In fact, in the last two dreams, there was a narrator and I could just watch. Even when I tried reaching to touch something, I couldn't.
      And then I woke up irl.

      Has anybody had anything similar happen to them?

      Idk what to say about this. From one side I am excited that something remotely similar to LD happened to me, but from the other side I am extremely disappointed in myself because I missed out on knowing that was an FA.

      Welcome to DV and the class, nook1!

      Looks like you had quite a close call with your nap and you managed to incubate some of your intentions in the dream. And you were trying to control the dream by consciously reaching out to objects, maybe the dream scene wasn’t quite fully formed or you integrated within it.

      To catch the FAs, I recommend practicing and thinking about RCs especially before sleep including naps.

      Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

      Day 5: Messed up sleep
      Day 6: Had something similar to the FA on day 3 happen -_- except this time I didnt have any dreams in the dream, instead I felt tingles in my eyes when going back to sleep (in the FA), and could kind of see myself getting lucid in the dream I was having. Also the excitement I was having is getting more under control, so thats good.

      Thanks a lot Nyx for both the warm welcome and the advice! Hopefully my first fully lucid dream will happen soon
