      Lokoloi Workbook

      Not a beginner, but I'm having a lot of trouble recently so I figured maybe I missed some fundies (Fundamentals). Acting like I'm a beginner is also kinda fun since it reminds me of how excited I was when I first began my journey; not to say any of that vigor has left me!

      Reality Checks:
      - Sight, Sound, Touch: What Do I see, hear, and feel?
      - Where am I and what am I doing here? > 15 minutes ago?
      - This feels real, but I'm going to check anyways.
      - The next time I'm dreaming, I'll remember I'm dreaming.


      Ideally, I'd ask all of these questions every time, but usually I'd ask myself any number of them and in any order. Also, I've found that closing my eyes for a long blink seems to refresh my awareness, allowing me to more easily focus on details.

      Dream Signs:
      - My little cousin (We're practically brothers and in my dreams we always go on adventures together-- or he's in a corner somewhere eating cheese or something)
      -
      -
      Short-Term Goals:
      - Fly
      - Cultivate Creativity
      - Learn more about myself

      Long-Term Goals:
      - Obtain consistent lucid dreams, or Omnilucidity, by asking a dream character to explain to me that I am in a dream until I become lucid in at least one dream every night thereafter. Should be free, provided I can get in the dream and stabilize and whatnot.
      - See what's really possible with LDs. Flying and fornication is fun, sure, but there's more to it than that. I have a desire to see where it leads, and a somewhat smaller one to see where it ends, if there even ARE limits to LD!
      - Use dreams to better my waking life; use what I learn while awake to better my dreaming awareness.

      Lucid/Dream Recall History:
      - Interpreting this as "How is your dream recall before starting this workbook?" In the months prior? Crappy. If I actually try though? Several paragraphs after about 10 days.

      Current Technique:
      - DILD. Sleeping situation uncomfortable. Consistently causes nighttime wakeups due to back pain that ruins WBTB and WILD attempts. Working on it.

      My Current LD Training Consists of:
      - At least 5 RCs per day (As per Puffin's SAT method)
      - Rating how thorough my RCs throughout the day are on a scale of 0% - 100%
      - Listing as much Dream content recalled as possible; both the literal contents of the dream and perceived amount of time said content would take. (Actual contents are posted in my DJ.)
      - Minutes Meditated
      - Additional notes. I log the data in my entries as I get it.

      Apparently, The way I began to do RCs is called SAT. I read Puffin's guide so as to further optimize how I do them. It never worked for me because I never did it long enough. Hopefully now, that will change. Anyways, I'm already spontaneously getting bursts of awareness. I'll take that as a sign of progress.

      Lucidity Attained: No
      RCs: Met. As of now, 8 or 9 of them.
      RC Quality: 75%
      Minutes Meditated: 10.
      Dream Content Recalled: ~ 10 - 15 seconds.

      I got a lucid on night 1 and remembered 4 dreams total. Massive progress but it makes sense when you take into account my 5 prior years of experience. I'm just glad to get one after so long. The Last LD I had was September 3, over 3 months ago.

      Lucidity Attained: Yes
      Things to work on: Remember to breathe deeply and reaffirm my control, as well as test different stabilization senses like smell and taste.
      Next Goal: Successfully Stabilize a dream.
      RCs: Met.
      RC Quality: 85%
      Minutes Meditated: 10
      Dream Content Recalled: ~ 45 minutes.

      No lucids for night 2, and only 1 dream remembered. Sometimes it just be like that. One day I'll get back to back lucids.

      No lucids on night 3, but I did come to somewhat of a realization. Maybe the reason I can never stabilize a dream is due to some mental block. If at the beginning of every dream, I take a moment to realize that I am in control and calm myself, perhaps that will lead to more success with stabilization, and indeed everything else. My next goal has been updated. I also tried WBTB last night, now that I have a weighted blanket and new pillows. Seeing as though I accidentally did it for night 1's success, I thought I'd try to recreate it. I woke up at 5am, recorded my dream, and immediately went back to bed with no luck. Ah well. Hopefully I can get another one before the week is out.

      Also, I'm increasing my RC minimum from 5 to 10, considering I do way more than 10 anyway. Maybe this will increase the quality of the first 10. I say this because I do notice a dip in awareness for RCs that I do after I've hit the daily requisite so I'm thinking this will help. (Update: It did.)

      Here's my plan for tonight:
      1. Wake up at 5am. Haptic alarm on a Fitbit + a lamp scheduled to turn on.
      2. Record my dream.
      3. Drink my prepared tea while reading EWOLD. Stay awake for at least 20 minutes.
      4. Go back to sleep. Inhale, Exhale, Mantra 20 times or 10 times if really tired
      5. ???
      6. Profit

      No lucid last night. I played a game with some homies pretty early into the morning but decided to attempt anyways. After failing to remember my dream after waking up at 5am, I predictably failed my attempt. The rest of today was spent playing an update that came out for a game called Warframe, and riding my new skateboard. I'll still attempt tonight despite my lack of day practice, and I'll be back to the old grind tomorrow. Still the same plan.
