I'll post my suggestions again:

FSP= False Sleep Paralysis: happens when you wake up in SP-like conditions in a FA. This type of SP is caused by mental blockages, while the real SP is caused by physical conditions.

FHI= False Hypnagogic Imagery: happens when you experience HI while falling asleep inside a dream. This could be hypnagogic or hypnopompic.

CLD/CoLD= Chain of Lucid Dreams: when you experience several individual LDs after each other in a short time period.

CFA/CoFA= Chain of False Awakenings: when you experience several FAs after each other in a short time period.

SPA/SPuA= Sleep Paralysis upon Awakening: the most common type of SP.

SPFA/SPuFA= Sleep Paralysis upon Falling Asleep: very rare type of SP but it exists.

hmm... could have skipped over this one, but DR should be 'dream recall' I'm a really lazy typist, and probibly will spell every 2nd word wrong, so for the sake of LD4all we may want to add this one grin

Thanks for applying my VILD technique to the forum pasQuale! :D

How about adding some grammar to the acronyms?

LDs - Lucid Dreams
LDing - Lucid Dreaming
FAs - False Awakenings

and so on...

FWILD: Fake Wake Initiated Lucid Dream. When you do WILD in a dream, thinking that you are awake.

I think this one is pretty common, so I would like to see it added to the list of acronyms..

If you realize that you are dreaming while the dream is fading away and you are starting to wake up, could you call that LA: Lucid Awakening?

#38:  Author: Lucidity_Master PostPosted: Wed 24 Dec, 2003
Here is a good definition:

DILD - Dream-Initiated-Lucid-Dream--A dream in which the dreamer becomes Lucid during the dream, either by dreamsigns or spontaneously.

thanks Lucidity Master ^^

This seems like some good definitions

MILD - A method of lucid dream induction done by falling asleep with the presleep intention to remember to recognize the dream state.

WILD - A method of lucid dream induction done by focusing on something to keep the mind awake as the body falls asleep in order to enter the dream state fully lucid.

An acronym that I commonly use in my DJ:

TF - Technology Failure - The tendency of technological items to not function as intended while in a dream.

The most well-known example is the whole light-switch thing. Last night I had a dream where I couldn't get a cell phone to work properly, and then it began to fall apart in my hands.

I noticed HI hasn't got a description yet. How about this:

"Vivid sensory perceptions occuring while falling asleep. HI often consists of images which may eventually develop into a dream. Flowing passively with HI into the dream is the basic technique of WILD."

[edit to cover up even further retardedness.]

HH doesn't even have an explaination either.

HI / HH can also be experienced upon waking too!
Hypno-/Hypnagogic - as you fall asleep
Hypno-/Hypnapompic - as you wake

I often rest my eyes for a while and get HH...but I stop myself from going further asleep. I use it as a form of entertainment when I have some free rest time.

#44:  Author: mystic PostPosted: Sun 04 Jan, 2004
I only spoke of imagery when falling asleep, because HI means "hypnagogic" imagery. Thus, HH and HI only happen when falling asleep. There's no specific acronym for hypnopompic imagery... yet.

Dream leaping. Going from your dream to person/thing's dream.
