      WBTB + no technique. The environment just felt weird so I assumed that I was dreaming. I'm trying to play with this dream incubation technique.

    Broke Dryspell

    by wRembrandt on 05-10-2019 at 05:32 PM
    I did SSILD to get a lucid dream after a WBTB. This time, the efficacy of the technique dawned on me. It isn't about the cycles or how long you do them, it is about the mere act of paying attention. It's about the mental act of bring background noises, sensations and objects to the foreground of awareness; noticing subtle things like: how one's cloths touch the skin, how tense or relaxes muscles are, the sound of the fan, the chirping of the birds and crickets, the weird shapes in the darkness of vision.

    The mere act of paying very close attention stimulates the mind to the extent that the next time I fall asleep, I can't help but notice I am dreaming. Of course, I've only done this one time so more trials are needed. This hypothesis seems very plausible and could explain why techniques I've invented in the past have worked - staring through the eyes, mindfulness meditation, SSILD, listening to the white noise in the ears; they all require me to pay attention during my WBTB period.

    ~~~

    The dream featured me walking down my street and trying to stabilize the dream. I call out repeated for Gray to appear; the dream character I have chosen to act as a goal for dream control. No matter how many times I call out, she doesn't appear. I attempt to walk to the park around my home and make it far enough until I find myself in a hallway; the end of it being a bookshelf. I close my eyes in the dream and imagine myself having the ability to walk through solid objects. I phase through the shelf and find myself on the other side in a room.

    I find Gray sitting on a park bench inside this room. We greet each other and the dream ends.

    Did MILD but....during the lucid dream, it took me a while to figure out it was a dream.

    Breaking a Dry Spell: Lesson Learned.

    by wRembrandt on 08-29-2018 at 05:24 PM
    SSILD is a legit technique, just need to not be so lazy. Got a DILD from it. I sleep for 6 hours then set my alarm to awaken me every hour for 3 hours. This enables to be retry a technique if it failed the first time.

    A Note

    by wRembrandt on 06-07-2018 at 09:18 PM
    As I fell asleep during an afternoon nap, I said the mantra:

    "I can see [Dream Character]"

    ...with as much conviction as I could muster in my head while letting myself fall asleep. After I woke up, I felt it was a failure until I spent a little bit of time trying to recall my dreams. The truth of the matter is that I did see the dream character. She was tugging me by the hand as I pleaded that we needed to get out of where ever we were at the time. We both began to levitate since I warned her that he only way to escape was to fly over the fence surrounding the parameter.

    There was a third person trying to stop us from escaping. It was like this third person could sense our intentions. We managed to fly high enough and far away enough to get atop this overpass. My partner and I hugged each other; not only to celebrate, but to initiate a teleportation farther away.

    Nothing was lucid.

    Biggest takeaways are that:

    Affirmations should be in present tense - as if the goal is happening Here & Now; not in the indefinite future tense.

    This was during a nap 12:30 in the afternoon. I was sleep deprived. The later your are in your sleep cycle, the better.

    More experiments to come along.
