That sounds great; I'll definitely try it. I'll tell you my results if and when I get them.

I should be in bed right now but i'm caught up on trying to learn how to play "time" by Hans Zimmer on the piano smile regardless, I know we all try to motivate each other to improve dream recall, keep at RC, and write in our DJ to increase our chances of having a LD. I particularly need to find my own specific RC to work best for me. I have had about 4 LD in my life but haven't had one in a year... as you can tell not only do I really want one but I am frustrated, too. no good! Should we just keep talking on this Lding Buddy topic to each other? or should we all contact each other in some other specific way!

Last night I had a good dream. Got some good recall on it. DJ link in description. (Same for all future posts.) And as to staying motivated and keeping up with the DJing, my longest streak was about a month and a half. I picked this new streak up on the 12th of this month and I intend to take this streak into a permanent action.

I keep telling myself, this is it! This is the time I succeed!

Also while we're all buddies here, I had an awesome fantastic idea for a super cool Java program for Lucid dreaming. It's still an idea I'm mulling over and it'll be a while before I ever implement it, but... the main theme is Lucid Group. Basically, it would be an app where LDers could link there computers together and share their journals. I know, I know there's a DJ section on the site (I use it ), but the app would also include a chat program for onliners (IRC I know..) and any other features I could come up with. Basically, it would be to streamline grouping with members. Making it easier. You could be entering a new entry and friend a sends you a message. You know? It's still an idea, but if I ever start making it into real software I'll be sure to put up a thread.

Well enough mulling the idea on the forums, have a good night all! I'm off to WILD.

Hey everyone. Had a crazy dream last night where I couldn't make up my mind on what to wear and I ended up running late for something. A shame I didn't do my typical RC of checking my clothes >.> I guess being stressed or rushed is very distracting eh
I'm thinking I might start a DJ on here. I get the feeling it might help since I don't always write in my DJ next to my bed, yet I come on here almost every day >.<
Just a quick question, have any of you had results with VILD?

You know, I have had exactly one success with VILD and it was before I knew about LDing and had a real interest in it.

I was on the bus to school one morning and I was working on this idea for some game I wanted to make. I kept playing the idea for a cutscene in my head over and over, and then I woke up at school realizing I had just dreamt my game cinematic! In retrospect, it was awesome!!!!

And now to the progress update:

Not much recall last night, but I did record a dream. Also not much luck with the WILD attempts, but I'll never quit! Optimism is key!

Didn't have any memory from dream last night.. I was pretty tired though, I don't think I even repeated a mantra in my head, I just slept normally.
When I wake up tonight I will take some Choline Bitartrate and see if I can get at least a dream that I remember a lot details from.

after WBTB try laying down and try to sleep, just sleep as you normally do, keep yourself a bit awake counting silently in your mind, then at somepoint your mind will drift away into a daydream, when you realize you are daydreaming without control, pretend that is a real dream and act and try to feel it as if it was lucid, its important to let your mind do the work and build the dream and objects, if you pop out of the daydream once you realize you are day dreaming, just relax your mind, and let the picture of your daydream come alone, do reality checks and try to explore that tough in 3 dimentions, interact with the scene, touch things etc, try to not wake up your mind while doing it, it's normal to lose consciousness just try to get back on what you were doing, and keep doing it as you fall asleep, the day dreams will get everytime more vivid, it's easy fall asleep without consciousness at this point.
i have had a lot of vivid dreams doing it, and 3 lucid dreams, i just really don't know if it really works for everyone, can anyone try it? i might write a tutorial later writing , meanwhile i really need to know if it works for anyone else, im still working and improving the technique.

the idea of this is making a faster way to wild, based on a normal dream process via daydreaming, putting sleep paralysis away, hope it works for somebody grin

I wish I read that more in depth since I did an accidental WBTB last night (needed to pee) so I could have tried it. I think I was lucid for a few seconds... it's pretty vague, but I think I was trying to push myself through the ceiling above the bed.
*sigh* trying to find the motivation to attempt VILD again Is there any solution to not fall asleep so quickly?

That's the hardest part for me too, not to fall asleep can be really hard, just try to get back on what you were doing, focus a bit more, early today i had success again with this technique, but i changed something: don't lucid day dream all the way, do it once you get to the daydreaming mode for a few seconds, then let your mind wander again, let pass some moments untill you feel more close to fall asleep, then do it again, and repeat, by doing this i think you are making a not lucid-to-lucid cycle, i've been doing reading more about how lucid dreams work, at some point you will go to a non lucid state in a real dream and sudently become lucid as part of the "not lucid-lucid" cycle or rutine siiw

I feel that my DR is going up and down. I remembered 1-2 dreams every night for a couple of days and then it went two nights were I didn't remember anything. Remembered two dreams yesterday and one this night.
I've eaten more healthy and got a sleep routine that I will try to keep. When school starts it will be easier to keep a routine as well.

I'd love to join this too. I've been needing someone (or a group) of people who will stay committed for a while now, because it seems as though I never can motivate myself enough on my own for more than about a month (and even that's pushing it). I even had a kind of LD the other day, so maybe it's a sign that it's time to get back into it again smile
