      I LD'd 3 times early this morning. :yumdumdoodledum: Wow, it was so fun and a great experience.

      I repeated my MILD mnemonics after waking up for a bit around 3 AM, and went into vivid dreaming. I saw an elevator, a dreamsign from my worst recurring nightmares. I thought, "I'm dreaming." I got on the elevator which resembled a long glass tube and put my hand through a glass panel to RC. My hand went right through the glass like it was gell. I got too excited I think because things went black.

      The next one: I saw a flight of stairs, another dreamsign from my nightmares. I saw a friend of a friend coming up the stairs and knew I was dreaming. I greeted her, "Hi Peggy! I'm lucid. How are you?" I was so happy lol Then it went black.

      The third one: Not sure what triggered the LD, but I knew I was dreaming. I went to the elevator with some other DCs and I tried my "powers." I tried to move the people already inside the elevator from side to side with my mind but it didn't work too well. However, I was able to push in the metal elevator doors in a bit with my thoughts. I could feel the energy of my mind flow out through my hands and bend the metal. Very cool.

      I went inside the elevator to see where it went. This in itself is a big deal because they are generally terrifying places for me in my dreams. But, there was no fear this time. The elevator took me to an indoor industrial complex. I read all of the signs on the warehouses and they made sense. The letters weren't reversed. It did seem like some of the company names were mixed-and-matched...like Proctor & Gamble would be Siemens Gamble.

      A DC took me to an audio/visual store. I asked him, "So I own this?" He said yes but it surprised me. We walked in and I thought, "I'd like to have a video by a certain musician playing." I waved my hand and the TVs started playing it, but the volume wasn't loud enough. I danced around, checked out the wares, and talked to my employees. I fired one and literally tossed him out of my shop for being a racist. I hired another guy and talked to a friend about taxes. Then my clarity started to fade.

      Thanks for reading and any comments.

      Awesome, I love exploring the world of Lucid Dreaming. Things always get out-of-hand and interesting things end up happining. I was once told I wasn't really lucid and this DC was arguing with me about how he MUST be real... then he said he was going to beat me up. Luckily a Giant Worm chose that moment to slither up the bowling alley.
      I had a strange dream last night...

      Yep, this was just so cool. I couldn't get back to sleep after I woke up. It's good you have a really, really big "friend" getting your back in Lucid Land lol! That's a trip to think that you the dreamer had to argue with your dream. Weird and interesting.

      Hey Ben, I'm still feeling my way through this, reading, experimenting and getting a lot of great advice from The Blue Meanie. I'll tell you what I've been doing, but I'm a real noob. So please check with one of the DGs if you need to.

      I do RCs whenever I think to. It's getting more frequent...maybe 10 or 12 times a day. The more the better for me at this stage. Time will tell what's going to be the most reliable and effective RC(s). My goal is to really assess whether or not I'm dreaming instead of just going through a ritual of RCing. I RC with whatever is around me. For example, if I'm at the computer, I check the computer clock and maybe nose pinch. On the bus, check the street signs (for scrambled or reversed letters, numbers, etc.) and poke my hand. If the bathroom, my reflection, etc. When I'm satisfied, then I say the result of the RCs in my head. Today, I RC'd whenever I took the elevator at work and tried to stick my hand through the wall lol!

      This was my first successful MILD experience. The problem was that I was just saying my MILD mnemonics before going to bed, not when I woke up at 3 AM and 5 AM. The day before yesterday is when I started the 3 AM / 5 AM MILDs. The timing must have something to do with it.

      What I did was: I woke up naturally (no alarms) at 3 AM, stayed in bed, and repeated my mnemonics phrases. "I'll have a lucid dream." "I'll remember my dreams." "I will be lucid in my dreams." Then I fell back to sleep. I wrote everything down in my dream journal as soon as I had a chance to in the morning.

      Eagleeye, this sounds very similar to an experience i had not too long ago. I posted a little blurb here:

      http://www.dreamviews.com/forum/index.php?...c=42647&hl=

      I wonder if there is something unconscious that we are doing that would trigger something like three in one night..or morning. Im going to try again this weekend when i have time saturday morning. Repeat exactly what i did last time and see if i LD again. If anything comes of it i'll be sure to let you know!

      Thanks, CNC! Good luck with your test. I read your post and it does makes you wonder if there's a pattern. Maybe it's the excitement or surprise of being lucid, stopping short a few times, and then settling down enough to have a longer LD???

      OKay Eagleeye,

      it happened again this morning. Last night i tried to repeat over and over until i fell asleep: "i will lucid dream" "i am awake now but when i fall asleep i will wake again" and so on. During the night i did not have any LD's and had poor-medium dream recall this morning.
      I woke up at 8 am and as i lay there i knew i was going to go back to sleep so for the whole time i tried to constantly recall my dreams. I fell back asleep (and for me i think its the environment that helps) in the light of morning, as my blinds do not keep a lot of the light out.

      Anyway, as soon as i was asleep i found myself in a house that was half the house i live in now and half of a previous house i grew up in.
      This immediately struck me as weird and i became partially lucid.

      This was another one of those 'hazy ' LD's where i could control what was happening around me but could not completely attain full lucidity. It was like i decided where to go in my dream but i had no conscious thought of wanting to explore everything at once. It wasn't restrictive but it wasn't completely lucid.

      So i wake from that and its still too early to get up so i fall back asleep and took over from where i left off. This hasn't happened before but again, i contribute it to falling asleep in the light and going into a dream that was more of a dark and hazy setting.
      I could distinguish better the sudden shift of environment from light and morning to dark and afternoon. Something about knowing that i was just awake after a full night of sleep and now here i am in the dark again in my dream. I think my mind was logically processing the fact that when i go to sleep in the dark and have a dream about during the day that IT IS possible that i have slept all the way till morning and the dream im experienceing is in fact real so i will not become lucid as easily.
      It was the opposite for my mind when i fall asleep in the light since it would be highly unlikely that i have just slept the whole night away, woken up, gone BACK to sleep and then slept right back into night again.
      I am findig that i get more LD's in the morning s on the weekends when i have nothing to do for the day and can afford the luxury of sleeping in.

      What do you think? Does the light have anything to do with it ? I believe it is a combination of the light and knowing that the only thing i have to do for the rest of the day is ...nothing! so why not be as relaxed as possible and sleep some of it away in a Lucid?!

      Wow, congrats on your experiment That's so interesting!

      The question is whether your awareness that certain conditions exist in the real environment (a bright morning) induced lucidity because the conditions were contradicted in your dream environment (a dark afternoon). If you were consciously aware that it's a sunny morning, and that information travels with you into your dreaming state, it makes some sense that the contradiction would do that. At least in theory, anything that is at odds with reality should lead us to ask "Am I dreaming." So, it should work the same if, say, it's winter and you dream of a hot summer day.

      It makes you wonder how much input your brain is receiving from the external environment when you're in a dream state. Your awareness could have been reinforced by the sunlight coming through the blinds as you dreamed. I believe that noise can trigger SP. The only time I experience SP is when I nap on the couch with the TV on.

      It might be interesting to see if you get the same results if you did everything exactly the same except put on a night mask when you wake up at 8 AM. You'd still know it was morning, but the light wouldn't be there.

      heheh, thats still one thing that i have never invested [email protected] ! (sleep mask)
      Reading up on WBTB technique, what im doing seems the most similar to that if at all.
      I will have to write a post after getting a sleep mask and see if there is much difference.
