      Cool Whats your greatest fantasy? Lets achieve them together!

      Hello dreamers!

      I'm here to challenge you all!

      Why?
      Well a few reasons.
      1. I feel like if I have other people on this adventure with me and we share our stories, it will give me extra motivation to get good at LDing! More motivation = more chances of success!
      2. To inspire others to maybe push their LD practice to a new level!
      3. To see what kind of LDing goals other people have and maybe adopt a few of them as my own

      Whats the challenge?
      Write down 5-10 LD goals that you want to achieve! It can be long term goals like have 100 DJ entries, create a dream hub that you can revisit or something simpler like summon a dinosaur and ride it. They're YOUR goals so make them whatever you want to do! Try to not make them too easy or too hard because then they will be frustrating or trivial, rather than engaging and motivating. When you complete a goal, post your story in the thread! Hearing other peoples success stories is inspiring and beneficial for your own practice
      Also there is no time limit to this challenge! You can take as long as you need, so feel free to complete TOTM or TOTY before these goals if you want.

      Sounds fun! But whats the prize?
      I knew you were gonna ask that you greedy son of a...
      Since peoples goals may be a lot easier/harder than others, there will be no grand prize for the first to complete all their goals.
      BUT
      Think about what you will gain from doing this! By doing this challenge with everyone you will strengthen your motivation/intention to LD, which will increase your LD skill. You will inspire others to strengthen their motivation/intention. you will almost definitely have a lot of fun completing all your LD goals! You will have fun reading others stories and will maybe make a friend or two on the forum!
      I'm not sure about you but that sounds mighty fine to me!

      I'm convinced! This is gonna be great! How do we start?
      Just write down the goals and you'll be in the competition. Come back and post when you complete a goal. I'll start!

      LD Goals:
      1. Record 5 LDs in my DJ (currently at 0)
      2. LD more than once in one night!
      3. Meditate in my dream
      4. Tell a DC to tell me something about myself that I don't know
      5. Smoke DMT with a shaman or dream guide in my dream
      6. Hug everyone I see until my heart radiates with love manifested as light
      7. Transform myself into a woman and have sex(Has anyone done this???? I'm too curious to not try it)(What if I have sex with my male self while I'm female?!?!?!?!)
      8. Tell a DC we're dreaming and ask them what they want to do with this LD time. Then help them carry out whatever adventure they want

      Happy dreaming all!

      I accept your challenge!

      Here are my goals:
      1. Stabilize the dream and have a long LD.
      2. Fly (done this before but my LDs were very short).
      3. Tell a DC to tell me something about myself that I don't know (this seems to be interesting)
      4. Just travel around.
      5. Find my dream guide.

      I think it helps to write things in order to consolidate intent about what you want to do and I feel this is something I don't do often enough for dreaming, so I'll jump in here too.

      My current goals:
      1. Have some lucid dreams this year. This is a non-trivial challenge for me since I don't have any reliable way of attaining lucidity yet.
      2. Find/meet the black lizard dream character from some dreams I had more than a year ago.
      3. In a lucid dream, transform into a lizard character that was my dream-self in a dream from last year. Maybe pair this with the previous one while at it, since there's already some common ground there.
      4. In a lucid dream, take the form of one of the many anthropomorphic characters I draw and/or be supersized.
      5. Look for my younger self, between ages 4 and 6. Still want to speak to that version of myself to try and gain some insight about some of my lifelong issues.

      Goals 2 and 5 are the same as some others I've set before, more than a year ago, but the rest are goals that I sort of always have but never actually remember to write down.

      Welcome to the challenge Valor and DarkestDarkness! Thank you for joining!

      DarkestDarkness, I particularly like your 5th goal! I think I will also use it when I finish some of the goals on my list

      I completed a goal recently and forgot to post it here! Here's the excerpt from my DJ
      Dream 5: (meditating, rooms with teachers)
      I was at a spiritual teaching center. There were multiple rooms for teachers to teach smaller groups. I was looking around for a while and after looking through multiple rooms, I found one that was empty and I went in. I remembered I wanted to meditate in a dream and so I sat down with my back on a big wooden counter. I payed attention to my breath, some sounds around me and some body sensations. It didn't last long and I dont remember anything else.
      Honestly it was much less eventful than I thought it would be. I will definitely be trying it again something though.
      I've also recorded 2 LDs in my DJ, I'm halfway to 5 LDs!

      Just decided to join your challenge to keep up my motivation. I seem to be too busy to randomly try to LD at the moment
      You've already got some nice ideas here; this is my list:
      1. Go into the mirror world
        (pass through a mirror and see what I'll find on the other side).
      2. Have a meaningful conversation with a dream character
        (I often don't remember to talk to them at all).
      3. Find a beautiful garden with lots of fruits and taste them
        (or eat anything, haven't tried this yet).
      4. Travel as deep as possible into my subconscious
        (not sure how to do this yet, but there will be a way).
      5. Transform into something else
        (or be a bodiless awareness).
      6. Fly into space
        (if I fly high into the sky I always end up in the clouds and can't find the way out).
      Well, that will be enough for quite some time...

      Be sure to try again, a lot of weird stuff can happen. I've only meditated twice in a LD (and still want to try again): The first time my body lost any defined form and I somehow ended up in a thunderstorm with purple clouds. The second time all my surroundings dissolved (see the TotM thread).

      Good luck to everyone with making your dreams come true

      I really like the second one. You guys are welcome to suggest some of those for the tasks of the month.

      Hey guys, I hope you're all still around, pursuing your fantasies?

      Last night I achieved my goal no. 3: Find a beautiful garden with lots of fruits and taste them (or eat anything, haven't tried this yet).

      Spoiler for excerpt from DJ:

      Well, there were no fruits there (tbh I didn't remember what I had planned to taste), so I ate a white blossom... Though it was tasty, it wasn't that intense. I'll try something else next time, something I have more experience with in reality

      Yep, it's just too bad they are manifesting non-lucidly like in a recent dream from yesterday.

      My 4th goal appeared like this:

      Spoiler for non-lucid snippet from DJ.xcvi:


      Although it's a little disappointing when this kind of thing happens, I take it as a sign that there is some progress in the area of intent transferring into dreams. Lately I do feel closer to pre-lucidity anyway, as I am often having passing thoughts that question the reality of the dream environment.

      3. Ask the five star dream architect to explain SLEIGHT OF CARDS, an amazing sleek dream that doesn’t seem to fit her bill
      4. Ask for more ideas
      5. Walk on Saturn’s rings

      Well, last night I had some fun with my fourth goal: Travel as deep as possible into my subconscious (not sure how to do this yet, but there will be a way).

      I'm pretty sure I can go deeper than this but nevertheless it was an interesting journey so far.

      Spoiler for excerpt from DJ:

      It felt like shedding layers of skin or rather like tearing down walls of protection built by my consciousness (/ego?). Although I got distracted in the end

      My goal #1 has at least become technically complete twice, and I consider it a measure of conscious effort being successful, because in the last year I didn't have a single one.

      Excerpts from both:

      10. Ask a DC/the dream about the future/my future
