      Objective Of The Competition

      Explore your dreams and in the process of that, explore yourself! Discover who you are. The points run the same as the last competition. There is a fighting chance for non-lucid dreams, just so they can have some fun too but their standard tasks are capped at 1.0 and advanced at 2.0 (except for the reality check which will only apply for successful lucids), that way, performances by lucid dreamers aren't threatened and if you keep the lucids going, you'll win anyway. But remember, with me, it's all about the fun and improving the general quality of your dreams, including recall. As I have more experience, there will also be some specific team tasks which will have a set high number for lucid dreams and will be capped at 5.0 for non-lucid dreams.



      Non-lucid only aspects:
      - Recall a full non-lucid dream (1.0)

      - Recall a non-lucid fragment (0.5)

      - Recall any non-lucid dream over 3 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 3.0)

      - Recall any non-lucid dream over 5 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 5.0)

      - Recall any non-lucid dream over 7 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 7.0)
      NOTE: Once you have completed the 7 night chain, you will have to start your chain again. So the 7 chain would be an expected maximum of 4 times.

      Lucid only aspects:
      - Recall your first lucid dream of the night (10.0)

      - Was Introduced via DILD (an additional 5.0)

      - Was Introduced via WILD (an additional 5.0)

      - Was Introduced via WBTB (an additional 2.0)

      - Subsequent Lucid Dreams: all methods (5.0)

      - Recall a lucid dream over 3 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 9.0)

      - Recall a lucid dream over 5 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 12.0)

      - Recall a lucid dream over 7 consecutive nights - Can't skip a night or the chain will be broken (an additional 15.0)
      NOTE: Once you have completed the 7 night chain, you will have to start your chain again. So the 7 chain would be an expected maximum of 4 times.

      Help With Points
      Example Scenario:

      ___Non-Lucid
      The sky was grey, a bird was swooping down viciously towards me. I thought he was going to peck my eyes out. I cried "Help! I'm not invincible!". My dream guide appeared and acted as a barrier between me and the bird. The bird hit her but nothing of hers was affected, she was indeed invincible. She then took me to the city and pointed to a homeless man sitting in front of the book store, I decided to give him $10. After that, I met Lisa in the cafe, who is my DV comp team member in real life. Just as another DV team member Grace was walking in, the dream ended.

      Full NL dream = 1.0
      Summon DG = 1.0
      Help someone in need = 1.0
      Meet a team-mate = 1.0 for Lisa, 0.5 for Grace = 1.5
      TOTAL POINTS = 4.5

      ___Lucid
      The sky was grey, a bird was coming down towards me in slow motion. "I'm dead", I thought until I looked down at my fingers and noticed six of them. "Hang on... it's a dream!", I said to myself. I had control now, I breathed the element of Earth which repelled the bird away in the opposite direction. The dream then took me to the city. I could explore but I knew there was more potential, so I summoned my dream guide to ask her what I should do. She appeared and pointed to a homeless man sitting in-front of the book store, I decided to give him $10. After that, I met Lisa in the cafe, who is my DV comp team member in real life. Just as another DV team member Grace was walking in, the dream ended.

      First lucid of the night = 10.0
      DILD method = 5.0
      Breathe an element = 6.0
      Summon a dream guide = 10.0
      Help someone in need = 4.0
      Meet a team-mate (Lisa) = 7.0
      Additional team-mate (Grace) = 3.0
      TOTAL POINTS = 45.0

      Once you are in the competition, please specify your personal goals.

      Goodness me, did the previous post just completely disappear? I apologize if this one will turn out to be a duplicate.

      ...Well, what a way to start the Spectacular September Competition with a highly non-spectacular lucid dream...

      For about a week now I'm teased with lucid dreams where I know I'm dreaming, but my System 2 never activates and I end up not doing anything, I'm like "Sure, I'm dreaming, so what?". I think I know how to fix these. I'll count this one as a lucid dream but if further ones turn up, adieu!

      Sep 1-2 dreams

      0.5 - non-lucid fragment
      1 - full non-lucid dream
      10 - lucid dream
      5 - induced by DILD
      2 - induced by WBTB
      Total: 18.5 points

      I accomplished perfectly nothing in this lucid dream since I didn't even know I could... those are so annoying.

      My personal goals:

      -See four spatial dimensions at once
      -See eleven spatial dimensions at once (curse you Letaali...)
      -See in isometric vision
      -See without depth perception, objects no longer appear smaller when further away
      -Develop infrared vision and be able to see through black objects
      -Be able to control everything with finger snapping
      -Control the day/night cycle by moving the sun and moon as if the sky was a touchscreen
      -Improvise a piano piece (and be able to recall it when I wake up)
      -Fly while holding hands with my crush
      -Meet hobbits
      -Ride a dragon
      -Have a dragon ride ME
      -Spend a whole lucid dream (until the awakening and beyond?) progressing in a Portal testing sequence generated on the go
      -Build a transmutation engine

      And these are all I can remember for now, let's make that my list, it's certainly shorter than cooleymd's, but who cares, I probably won't complete them ALL by the end of September anyway.

      Well I became lucid at 10:30 this morning

      noticing my shoes were incomplete I held one foot over the other and imagined completing them ,It worked, I realized I was dreaming, I got up and jumped (RC jump test) and then I flew, but I false awakened, I was in bed and could hear somebody leaving but I wasn't fooled, I got out of bed jump tested again (because I had no cloths on) and then flew down the hall, then opened the door and flew out. I could see it was a bit dark and there were several apartment like buildings straight ahead. I decided to RAMPAGE and decided I need to use a verbal command to help me (as I had looked around I had seen DC that looked about 80% real and 20% computer generated, but they were spread out and far apart) so I yelled "DREAMSCAPE add DCs, LOTS of DCs" Immediately they begin to swarm out of the doors of the appartment like buildings at least several dozen of them near together, latter more continued to swarm out. I decided as I approached them that these DC looked about 95% human and 5% comptuer generated. I went for the topside, but after the first 2 DC I noticed some female statue like things hanging on the wall and I strarted grabbing those and counting them, then I became distracted after counting to four then I did a test of a different possible goal, then finally I continued along the cooridor deciding to smack some backside, as I reached the fifth DC I had lost the dreamscape and then woke.

      So Lucid +10, DILD +5, WBTB +2, Jump Test +5, Fly +4, repeated things ZERO, (2 out of 5+) Topside EPIC FAIL, (5 out of 5+) back side NEW goal +15

      so total lucid 41 points a few other nld still trying for more


      BTW using verbal commands is something I have rarely done, but when I do, it is among the most effective control technique especially when you address the dreamscape directly. Also I do not consider the addition of dozens of DC to the dream scape to be Summoning A DC so I didn't coun't any points, they did not materalize under my control, I commanded the dreamscape, and the immediately flowed out of doors and also walked in from the sides of my field of vision

      I suggest you try some verbal commands I could for instance have shouted instead 'dreamscape: daylight now', but if I had yelled something super specific like 'dream scape: make it rain cats and dogs (litterally)' and this had happened I would coun't that goal

      Sept 2

      One non-lucid and 2 fragments. 2 points.

      Adjusting my sleep, hopefully sleeping better on following nights.

      Personal goals:

      -Reach the Frozen Planet and explore the mountain.
      -Learn to better control fear in dreams.

      I like to stay focused, so those are all my personal goals for now. The contest already has a huge list of tasks and summoning dream guide is on there, which I would put as my goal, if it wasn't.

      DJ Entry for Morning of Sep 2

      So this is what it came out to:
      Dream (dog & school, dog & living room)
      Dream (sinking in the well, cousin is "3", demogorgon)
      Dream (intruder in weapons man's house, 1950's NOLA)
      Dream (Sonic with fiance)
      Dream Frag (fiance, ice cream, bowling alley)
      Dream Frag (waves & train tracks, sasquatch)
      Dream Frag (boss & spider dust)

      So for these nonlucids, would this count as (fragments)(3x0.5) + (dreams)(4x1), or would it just be 1.5 total (only counting the first fragment and first dream)? I think it would be 5.5 but just want to make sure.
      Good job with your first night everyone! I think I'm going to get lucid tonight, I have a good feeling about it

      Personal Goals:
      [] FLY! (with full sensation and stability)
      [] Visit the zeppelin/floating city/bathhouse (dream world I've been trying to incubate)
      [] Meet the dream characters from this world (Lady M, Hugo, and the others who have come to me in visualizations)

      Secondary Personal Goals:
      [] Summon my fiance & dog in a lucid dream and take them on an adventure
      [] Ask my subconscious for a profound sensory experience
      [] Stay in a lucid dream for over 2 minutes
      [] Enter a tornado

      LD Count: 22 since August 2018
      Last Dream Goal:

      Have a DC tell me that I'm dreaming

      Sep 2-3 dreams

      Why do I already have 3 followers? Who is workwithlapo and webinarstarterblueprint? Are these fellow Dreamviewers or random people who discovered my DJ by accident despite the fact that I set it to hidden and it's therefore invisible to search engines?

      Anyway... last night was a bit of a disappointment, my fault, I should've gotten lucid... I'll retry tonight and hopefully succeed this time...

      3 dreams and 1 fragment, 3*1+0.5 = +3.5 points for tonight.

      I got lucid again! I've been having a good feeling every night before bed when I look up at the sky. Also had a lot of nonlucid fragments and dreams.

      Score:
      10 (Lucid) + 5 (DILD) + 2 (WBTB) + Transform (6) [23]
      + 4 * 0.5 (Fragments) [2]
      + 6 * 1 (Dreams) [6]
      =====================
      31

      Quick question as this is my first competition: as far as fragment/dream tallying goes, I've been counting a dream as something I can remember the beginning, middle, and end of, and only counting once for each sequence of scenes that are connected. Fragments being any other sliver of memory. Does this make sense?

      Goodness me... I ALMOST got lucid... I swear tonight I will be lucid like crazy...

      Sep 3-4 dreams

      2 fragments + 3 full dreams = 4 points, +3 for a streak of 3 consecutive nights = +7 points

      I did an RC but I didn't get lucid, so no points for that

      I had figured I wouldn't get lucid last night due to little sleep time, drinking before bed, etc. But I have literally no memory from my head hitting the pillow to the clock telling me I was almost late for work, so big fat 0 for me today.

      Sorry, I have been away for the first few days of the September competition on vacation. I'm back now and ready to jump right in!

      Personal Goals:
      - Talk to my subconscious. Ask them to show me what full lucidity is like / help me become lucid in the future
      - Look around a future- looking cityscape. Watch all the people moving around doing their daily routine.
      - Visit a countryside cottage and experience the feeling of euphoria

      Ambitious Goals:
      - Move the moon closer to Earth. Try moving it so close that it's actually barely touching the ground without it crashing into it. Walk between the two surfaces and gravities.
      Dream on, Oneironaut

I could see it was a bit dark and there were several apartment like buildings straight ahead. I decided to RAMPAGE and decided I need to use a verbal command to help me (as I had looked around I had seen DC that looked about 80% real and 20% computer generated, but they were spread out and far apart) so I yelled "DREAMSCAPE add DCs, LOTS of DCs" Immediately they begin to swarm out of the doors of the appartment like buildings at least several dozen of them near together, latter more continued to swarm out. I decided as I approached them that these DC looked about 95% human and 5% comptuer generated. I went for the topside, but after the first 2 DC I noticed some female statue like things hanging on the wall and I strarted grabbing those and counting them, then I became distracted after counting to four then I did a test of a different possible goal, then finally I continued along the cooridor deciding to smack some backside, as I reached the fifth DC I had lost the dreamscape and then woke.

      So Lucid +10, DILD +5, WBTB +2, Jump Test +5, Fly +4, repeated things ZERO, (2 out of 5+) Topside EPIC FAIL, (5 out of 5+) back side NEW goal +15

      so total lucid 41 points a few other nld still trying for more


      BTW using verbal commands is something I have rarely done, but when I do, it is among the most effective control technique especially when you address the dreamscape directly. Also I do not consider the addition of dozens of DC to the dream scape to be Summoning A DC so I didn't coun't any points, they did not materalize under my control, I commanded the dreamscape, and the immediately flowed out of doors and also walked in from the sides of my field of vision

      I suggest you try some verbal commands I could for instance have shouted instead 'dreamscape: daylight now', but if I had yelled something super specific like 'dream scape: make it rain cats and dogs (litterally)' and this had happened I would coun't that goal

      If only my audio dream journal sounded as good as those Hypnograms look, I'd have a lot more points
      (not to mention I havn't transcribed or sysnopsised anything yet, tho I don't think I earned any extra points in one dream the DC I was with bought something but that isn't worth +1 he he )

      DJ Entry for Morning of September 5

      I had a better recall than yesterday this morning, but again I really had to lie still and reach for them...not getting enough sleep lately. On a positive note, my dream signs are becoming clearer, so I think I'll start trying to work them into my routine and mantras/visualizations more often.

      Score for today:
      4 * 1 (dreams) + 2 * 0.5 (fragments) = 5

      I have a good feeling about getting lucid tonight. Good luck all!

      Thanks ZAD!

      I gave myself a little advantage last night by taking some supplements which probably helped me out there

      Which supplements Bridger? Once in a blue moon I'll take melatonin for REM Rebound but after reading Yuschak I'm tempted to try the Galantamine + Choline Bitartrite "lucidity trigger". But it's always good to hear first-hand accounts that actually worked!

      Quick update from me: I won't have Internet access until September 12 or so, therefore I won't be updating this thread for quite some time.
      In the meantime I've had quite a few non-lucids and sleepless nights. I had a lucid dream last night but I can't provide a dream journal entry yet, and nothing meaningful happened there, I didn't remember my goals, etc. I was just aware I was dreaming while I listened to an explanation of why the integral from -1 to 1 of 1/x dx is divergent and not zero (the day before I had an "enlightenment" of why it is so). There was one more dream where I RCed a lot but didn't get lucid. I think I might be very close to using autosuggestion to generate frequent, fully conscious lucid dreams, but that was supposed to happen almost a week ago and it hasn't happened yet for numerous reasons. I don't know if there's a point in me participating in this competition at all. I don't have any chances of winning. That said, I'm not aborting the competition just yet, only don't expect updates until my Internet is back.

      fourth night in a row


      I used Claridream Pro the other night ZAD. It was an indigogo kickstarter project started by the group at World of Lucid Dreaming. It has a combination of ingredients in it, the main one being the Chinese Clubmoss extract which contains the Huperzine-A that effects dream quality and clarity. They were originally going to use galantamine instead of this, but something fell through. I feel that it would have been a stronger supplement if they stuck with that. Otherwise, however, I enjoy using it! I definitely feel a noticeable difference whenever I use it. It is not as powerful as when I use galantamine with choline though. That combination gives me frequent sleep paralysis and better awareness both as I'm falling asleep as well as when I'm dreaming. A great way for inducing WILDs if you have trouble initiating them otherwise. I would definitely recommend trying it out if you get the chance!

      Hey misotanni, I'm sorry to hear that you are having some falling outs with your practices. I know for me that motivation is a key factor in how much I end up practicing and keeping my self awareness at a higher level. That being said, I believe that this "competition" is a great way to keep motivation high and stay in touch with fellow oneironauts. I think that you should most definitely stay in this competition after you are back from your break for those reasons. I don't think that this is at all about winning, but to better yourself as a dreamer and improve over time. You can look back on this competition in the future and see how far you've come if you keep up the practice. For me this is the most rewarding idea.

      Thanks for the update misotanni. Hopefully you'll be able to get some good dreams soon. Don't feel pressured to win the competition; the main aim of this game is to have fun and use this competition as a tool for assessing your goals and maintaining your stability, that being, at your own pace. But at the same time, you do what you feel is right. Keep up the dreams everyone, I'm uploading a new batch to DV as I speak (post this).
