      Iíve also started focusing on dream goals after listening to a podcast with Charley morley who stated people write to him Saying itís not happening no matter what they do and has found that they are doing everything but donít have the ďwhy?Ē The lack a goal and has found once people have a goal or two that drives them who are doing everything else the lucids follow.

      You mention that you have low level short lucids do you have a process you follow once your lucid to boost lucidity? I can share my process if you donít.

      Have you dabbled with WILDS much?

      I have a one year old son whose not the best sleeper. On some occasions his disturbances have allowed me have a mini WBTB and I have got lucid in on another occasion I was Wilding and just as a dream was beginning to form he started crying and I had a tough job trying to concentrate on the dream the dream collapsed so I carried on surfing HI another dream began to form and he continued to cry and eventually the dream collapsed.

      So when heís going through a more a stable sleep pattern I can then attempt WBTB ususally Iíll attempt a WILD

      Have had minimal success with MILD - which Iím currently working on at the moment but I certainly feel like that for the amount of time Iíve given MILD in the past and the small amount of time Iíve given WILD wild has tended to offer more results in less time.

      So this is what I do

      Dream journal every morning- trying to instill the habit of going over the dreams of the previous night and imagining myself become lucid and carrying out my dream goal before going to bed.

      Throughout the day try notice and RC to my dream signs,

      Occasionally I chuck in a few PMRCs -( should probably do them more often as itís boost my prospective memory confidence.)

      I try to keep some awareness on the body during the day as much as possible particularly the weight of it, sensations of clothing on the body, in the hope that at some point Iíll tune in to when I notice itís not there and become lucid.

      Iíve also started doing coherent breathing for a while and then after 10minutes repeating my intention to become lucid and remember my dreams before going to sleep and this seems to have helped Iíve also started doing it through out the day too.

      Hi Tiktaalik,

      I wanted to drop you a message because I think we both joined this forum around a similar sort of time we are both from the UK, and both started lucid dreaming in the same year, the info youíve given me in previous posts have been very helpful.
      I see you have a lucid count of 200+ which I think is impressive, I see from one of your posts you claim to have on average 1.5 lucids a week, brilliant work mate. Whatís shape does your current practice take? Anything you think of as significantly importation or big realisations youíve had along your journey.

      Iíve been doing it around a similar time, but Iíve been doing it intermittently. Over the space of 2 years, Iíve probably totalled 13months practice. Iím currently in my 4th month this time around and averaging 2lucids a month in total Iíve had 20 lucids over the last two years-ish
      My current long term goal is to get to one lucid a week.

      Apologies for the essay.
      And Hope all is well with you .

    The Door portal attempt

    The Door portal attempt
    #Lucid 17 - DILD

    Iím sat in my parents bathroom when suddenly I see a fine rain coming down from the ceiling. ďItís raining?Ē I note with surprise. I know that itís an odd thing to occur indoors but for some reason it feels acceptable that it could happen. ďAcceptable because itís a dream?Ē I wonder. I stand up to investigate and though the room looks exactly like the bathroom from my memory it doesnít feel right. I walk out onto the upstairs landing and feel a strange, shuddering sensation to my body and my surroundings and conclude it must be a dream.

    I look into my Childhood bedroom and see my bed and wonder if Iím asleep in it right now in waking life. I then recall my goal to use a door as a portal and find a closed bedroom door for the experiment. ďOn the other side will be a forestĒ I tell myself and then run at the door and swing it open, expecting to find a lush, green forest on the other side but instead Iím greeted by the bedroom that should be there. I feel as though I rushed it so I try again with another door but this time the dream collapses before I reach it and Iím left floating in darkness. I notice a blue ball of light in the distance and know Iím still dreaming and have the opportunity to re-enter. I try to remain aware whilst the new dream forms but I enter the next dream without lucidity.

    The Castle oddity

    The Castle oddity
    Lucid #16 - DILD

    Iím in the back seat of a car driving down the road through my childhood village with my friends. I suddenly become aware this is odd, and feel as though what Iím experiencing isnít real. ďItís time to move into the second act!Ē I chuckle to myself, feeling as though my current situation is a movie and things are going to get interesting. The car starts moving up a hill and I look out of the back window and see the familiar village from my childhood but in the distance there is a medieval kingdom and a large castle!? I know that shouldnít be there and start to slowly become aware itís because Iím dreaming.

    Lucidity is low but I sense the dream is unstable so I start to feel the fabric on the car seats and look at my hands, concentrating on the realism which is very lifelike. Things get a bit vague here but Iím floating or flying down the road after and trying to grab a moving truck thatís coming my way. I grab the truck and hold it for a moment and then try to fly to another car but itís then I notice my vision is failing and the dream ends.

    Alone in the House

    Alone in the house
    Lucid #15 - DILD

    Iím laid on my old childhood bed in the dark. Everything feels completely normal and Iím simply relaxing and scrolling away on my phone when I see an image of the actor Donald Glover wearing a red suit and shades. I remember dreaming about him recently and decide to do a quick routine reality check. I do this with no real suspicion of my reality and Iím convinced this is waking life. I decide to try my vanishing ring check as the text change failed last time I tried. I close my hand and as I reopen it Iím astonished to see my fingers have become stubs and are twisted and bent in a mangled way. It is a dream! I canít believe it and I had no doubt I was awake before! I count my fingers to double check and count 6! Iím rather excited as it came as a complete surprise.

    I jump from my bed and walk onto the upstairs landing and feel a sort of rumble run up my back? The dream is trembling around me and it feels unstable and on the verge of collapse. I remind myself to stay calm and engage my senses as planned. First I listen and hear a faint noise in my ear like wind is passing by. I realise it must be my bedside fan which I remember I have on in waking life. I then try to turn the light on, not expecting it to work and sure enough it doesnít. I try again and this time the light does flicker on dimly. I keep twisting the knob and gradually it gets lighter and lighter but with a struggle. Things feel more stable now so I head downstairs slowly and feel the smooth, wooden banister as I do. Itís dark in the house and I appear to be completely alone which gives it quite an eerie atmosphere as if at any moment something scary is going to jump out at me. I see the light is on in the kitchen and I head toward it, wondering if the dream is trying to guide me there for some reason. The kitchen is also quiet and empty but I see cereal has been spilt and scattered all over the floor? I look around for an explanation but there isnít one? Itís as if something had happened here long before I arrived and maybe what did it is still lurking somewhere nearby. Again, it gives me the creeps so I decide itís time to get out of here.

    I head to the front door to see if I can use it to change the dream scene. I decide what I want to see on the other side and really focus. ďI will see a forest, I will see a forestĒ I repeat and really try to expect it is behind the door. Iím ready and just about to open the door when... Iím shaken and wake up in bed. My wife has just turned over and shaken me awake! I manage to keep my eyes closed and hope I can get back into the dream but I am too awake now and unable to do so.

    The House Tsunami

    The House Tsunami
    Lucid/ 14 - DILD

    Iím stood in a large living room in a spacious, modern house. It looks like a show home and all the rooms are empty and in pristine condition. They have high ceilings, bright white walls and the wooden floors have a polished finish. I walk through the room slowly and feel like Iíve been here before? As I reflect upon my surroundings I casually become aware that this is all a dream. I know I should stop and reality check to make sure but my mind is still wrapped up in the dream and I want to finish what Iím doing first. Itís then I stop myself and realise how silly that is as none of this is real and I donít even know what Iím doing here in the first place! My lucidity grows stronger now but I donít feel overly excited as I usually would and instead feel rather calm.

    I walk across the living area and turn on the light. Though they never usually work in my dreams Iím surprised to see it comes on as normal with no struggle? I then look around the empty room for something else to do but feel a little uninspired. Not wanting to waste the whole dream trapped in this empty house I decide to pursue a dream goal and change the location. I find a door to the right which I can use as a portal and stop to think about where I want it to take me. ďSomewhere peacefulĒ I decide on the spot. ďMaybe a forest with a nice gentle stream running through itĒ. With that decided I reach for the door handle but notice water is gushing out of the cracks in the frame? I look down and see itís starting to flood the room and has created a small stream across the floor like the one I imagined on the other side of the door. Iím a little hesitant now to open it as clearly a lot of water is on the other side. I look across the room and find a second door at the opposite side I can use instead but when I reach it I see water is also spraying out of the frame! Before I can react the door is blown off itís hinges and the walls collapse as a cascade of water comes bursting through! ďOh noĒ I think as it comes crashing toward me. With no time to escape the thundering waterfall, I simply turn my back to it. The foamy water hits my back, wraps around me and sweeps me off my feet. Iím taken forward by the fast torrent and then thrown high into the sky by a large wave.

    I see now the rest of the house has gone, washed away with the tsunami and now Iím hurtling through a dark abyss with a vast, roaring ocean below me. I feel completely helpless, with no control over the dream and suspect my unconscious mind is behind this and trying to expel me from the dream. ďWhoa!Ē I yell out as I reach pinnacle altitude and begin to fall down towards the large, rolling waves. Iím glad the water is there to break my fall but at the same time I believe the impact will surely wake me up. It doesnít and instead I plunge into the ocean like a projectile and torpedo through the dense, dark water until suddenly, I land flat on my front on a solid surface?

    I peer up and see Iím no longer underwater but laid on a wet, stone floor in some kind of cave? The space is dark and vast and I can see some grand structure in the distance. It looks like some kind of ancient, underwater temple carved from stone and reminds me of something youíd see in a Tomb Raider game. I only glimpse this for a brief moment and then my vision turns to complete darkness. My sight has gone but I can still feel the floor below me and cling onto the surface, hoping my sight will return. ďStop now! I want to keep going!Ē I plead with my unconscious, believing itís behind all of this. I wait for a response and I soon get one in the form of a thundering wave which I can hear rushing toward me. A powerful surge of water throws me across the space like a rag doll. It consumes me and Iím left disoriented and spinning under the water, my hearing muffled and my limbs thrashing. I try to breath in oxygen but instead I gasp and choke, unable to breath! Iím drowning and the sensation feels scarily real. Unable to breath, I hold my breath instead and drift under the water helplessly. Thankfully the ordeal doesnít last long and soon the dream ends and I wake up with a choke and take a much needed breath of air.

    Analysis: This was a strange one indeed. Never have I felt so out of control and at the mercy of a dream whilst lucid. At the time it truly felt like my unconscious was working against me and trying everything it could to stop me and wake me up as if it really wasnít happy with me been lucid. Of course, upon reflection my expectation that the dream was trying to stop me is probably what made it feel this way. Perhaps that niggling doubt that lucidity is somehow unnatural and interfering with the natural dreaming process triggered this idea. The water coming through the doors was probably triggered by my desire to have a stream in the forest but the tidal wave that followed felt completely out of my control though it was suspiciously reminiscent of that opening action sequence in Inception where water obliterates the building and wakes up Cobb and may have been what influenced the events. The vast ocean was impressive to see and made me think of that famous quote about the dreamer been able to control the dream as much as a sailor controls the sea and this may also have influenced the events. I wish I had time to explore the temple at the end as it felt like a special place and somewhere I was suppose to end up. Sadly the dream worked against me again and that final wave felt like the final word from the dream. The drowning sensation felt very realistic and was rather alarming to be left gasping for breath. Holding my breath at the end was probably what woke me and I was kind of relieved it did. A fascinating experience overall and I hope I can experience more weird and wonderful things like this.

    The Fruit Tiles

    The Fruit tiles
    Lucid #13 - DILD

    Iím sitting on the sofa in my parents living room watching TV with them. I notice some familiar tiles on the programme Iím watching, theyíre white kitchen tiles and have images of different fruit on them. ďI recognise those tiles?Ē I say unsure where from. I then notice something to my right and see the wall next to me is also layered in the exact same tiles? Iím confused by this odd coincidence and it triggers me to RC. I see random scribbles of text on each tile and do a text change check. I look away, not believing it will change as Iím sure Iím awake right now but as I look back the text has indeed changed! Iím in disbelief! So much so that I donít believe it and do the check again. It changes again and again a third time. I canít believe itís a dream and I was so sure I was awake! I think I must have fallen asleep just now whilst watching TV and this was some kind of false awakening (In reality I was simply asleep in my own bed).

    I get up and walk across the room and through the door which randomly leads straight into my brothers old bedroom. I believe thatís where Iím currently sleeping and think it would be cool if I went in there and somehow found my body asleep in bed! I open the door, itís dark but sure enough under the covers is the outline of my body. I dash in and start shaking my body. ďRise and shine!Ē I yell with glee. My body isnít waking up though and I start to realise itís just an inanimate dream character instead. The dream then fades away and I enter the void. I remember to try spin to see if that can re-stabilise the dream but without a body I just feel a dizzy, spinning sensation in my head, as If my consciousness is spinning in circles. It doesnít lead to anything and I wake up.

    Lucidity: Low
    Trigger: Oddity
    Reality check: Text change
    Length: 1 minute (approx.)
    Goals: None
    Lucid count: 13

    Analysis: Very low level lucid. Clearly wasnít thinking straight as I was half believing I could interact with my sleeping body in bed. A successful RC though and it was good to see that I remembered to try spinning even though it didnít work. The fruit tiles were actually from an old flat I used to live in for a short time.
