      I'm not really sure. I left that forum around 2015. I'm going to take a guess and say it was because there was a lack of staff and rules? I do remember the last time I check before the crash that there were a lot of Adbots and spambots.

      Which is the opposite from here. Make yourself at home.

      More than just a technique, a dream journal is a core component, a fundamental, of lucid dream practice. A dream journal acts as one's personal "map" of the dream world and is an indispensable tool that every lucid dreamer should possess.

      Dream journals can come in many forms; from a physical notebook to a digital record. More important than the medium used is the data that it collects and the regularity of record keeping.

      A lucid dreamer without a regularly updated journal finds themselves in a position no less impaired than a cartographer without pen and paper, or a scientist without a means to record data.

      I would try to do it each morning, shortly after waking, transfer any dream memories and relevant factors from your night's sleep into your journal. If required, one can either use a voice recorder or shorthand system to quickly record key points that can be transferred, in full detail, at a more convenient time later in the day.

      Note: It is not required to use the DJ system here unless you are going to do the lucid tasks, "The TasK Of The Month or "The TasK Of The Year". The Link for that is down in my signature.

      The more data collected the better, beyond a record of just your dreams, additionally recorded data, you can (and should) also record your: sleep times, sleep quality, distractions, level of health, techniques used, sleep environment, hormonal cycles, diet, sleeping arrangements (partner/alone, etc.), and any other relevant factors.

      Also, Before sleep, You can use your journal to note any dream goals or intentions for the coming night.
      Regularly assess your dream journal for recurring patterns, clues to any lucidity triggers (either from within the dream or external factors), and to become familiar with the nature of your dreams. These assessments are a time to categorize and update your list of dream signs, improve your familiarity with the dream world, search for recurring patterns in your sleep, assess the effectiveness of different techniques, or be creatively inspired by your dreams.

      Do you can put any dream-related stuff in it. Including non-lucid dreams, nightmares, naps, and even your sleep cycle. Or even, if you are a person who is into astral Projection, you can probably put that in there too. Make it yours.

      To tack onto what Humble has already suggested, I would add that you can also do these other activities in your dream journal. It's up to you, but anything you do related to your dreams helps in your quest for lucidity. Plus, they are fun.

      1. Examine all dream symbols and look for dream signs. In Laberge's and Rheingold's book Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming, there is a great activity. You can classify your dream symbols into types so you can recognize patterns unique to your dreams. So, like what was weird about the symbol? Maybe, the form was off (rainbow colored hair, half-full bottle of coke for sale). Maybe the context was off (dead person talking to you). Maybe the action was strange (flying, walking on water, etc.). Or, maybe something unusual happens to your inner awareness (a very strong emotion, altered perception or perspective). After classifying your dream signs, look for what repeats in your dreams. Also sometimes you will find people, places and objects that repeat in your dreams (me = shells, mangoes, David Bowie, and the Keys, for example). You can make a list of your common symbols so that you can make an intention to reality check whenever you come across them (or something referencing them) during a dream, and during the daytime.

      2. Examine your dreams for spots where you could have become lucid. So like, you're having a pretty tame and normal dream, when all of a sudden, a friends starts blowing bubbles in your face. That's a good lucid moment. Maybe you didn't get lucid, but, it's important to note these times because we want to make an intention to become lucid at moments like these. Pair this activity with a daytime practice of reality checking whenever you come across something strange in the waking world. Don't assume you're awake, and try to put as much feeling into it as possible. This builds what is called the "critical reflective attitude."

      3. Building on #2 here, after determining "lucid spots" in your journal, you can go a step further if you like and write in your journal (or visualize) yourself becoming lucid and carrying out actions as if you were lucid. This really sets the intention. Now, to be 100% honest, this is a practice I haven't tried yet, but I intend to this summer. I'm pulling this from Robert Waggoner's awesome book Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self (check it out). He says it catapulted his DILD frequency.

      Good luck and enjoy your dream journal!

      ok, so for instance, having a conversation with someone, would that be considered lucid ?

      No. A Lucid Dream is a dream in which one is aware of the fact that it is a dream. This awareness gives you consciousness, which then allows you to take control over the dream and do anything you want, although control is not a necessary part of lucid dreaming. When a lucidity starts to destabilize you could try to stabilize the dream. Also, it comes down to expectations too. You probably don't want to mistake a lucid dream with a vivid dream.

      You can have a conversation with both lucids and non-lucids.

      well, none that I know of where I have been able to control the dream.
