Yep, no problem there C:
Try having her assist you with autosuggestion by striking up a conversation about lucid dreaming with her tonight till you sleep, or try to get her to assist you into lucidity in your dreams tonight! She's completely able to assist with CALD as long as you have her, regardless of where you got her from.
A brief tutorial of CALD is in my signature if you're interested in looking! C:

Do you have any other questions?

It's a matter of hours (about three) before I go to bed again. In that time, I'm going to type up some more info on my characters to get them on the brain, and when I daydream on the brink of sleep I will ask them to make me lucid, as usual. I might even use a mantra such as "My character will make me lucid in my dream" or something similar to help me. Then I'll VILD just as I am about to fall asleep. Can't wait!

This method's definitely got potential - I had another LD last night. It was weird - I suddenly had a weird thought that someone is trying to tell me that I might be dreaming. I did the nose pinch reality check - but it didn't work as expected, so I did another RC (the hand one) and it turned out I had 6 fingers. I became lucid, and then tried to summon one of my characters. One character appeared, but my character was very blurry, and then I had a False Awakening shortly after. It was a very vivid FA as well - just imagine how cool that would have been if I became lucid :D

I didn't think of continuing the Utopia dream at the time. It's strange how you don't think of stuff at the time in a dream.

Well, I'm new to this as well, but from what I've learned so far the next major step is to get to know your characters. What's their personality, their likes, their dislikes, etc. If you already know them pretty well, and they know you too, try asking them about LD's. See if they'd be willing/able to get you into one. If you do have an LD, try to find them.

Of course, you'll still want to read the earlier parts of this topic (Parts 1 & 2 especially), and I'm sure Wolvendeer or Talon will be on soon to answer your questions as well smile. I will say, it must be nice to have a natural ability to create indepenedent character naturally. Good luck!

Teraflare8866: Great job ^^ I'm glad to hear you're getting good results-- I don't really know what else to say! You're really doing well and you know what you're doing. C: Keep up the great work.

sentis: Hey, C: Rhewin is completely right, knowing your character and discussing lucidity is the next step for you. You make want to have the character help you will Autosuggestion by discussing attaining lucidity before sleeping, or having the character assist with another induction technique of interest, for example I am interested in WILD:

In WILD you can have your character try and keep you aware through the transition from waking to dreams. You can do this by having your characters give you reminders to stay aware, have them stop your mind from straying, or imagining doing an activity with them that engages tactile, audio, and visual senses throughout the process.

Other techniques that can work well is VILD, as described above, where you can incubate a dream that includes your character who could then remind you. Also, if you have trouble remembering to do reality checks, you could have your characters remind you to do so, as well as engage you in a 'If I were lucid what would I do' activity and so on.

I hope that helps, and I apologize for the lengthy response.
If you have any other questions I'd be happy to help C:

Rhewin: Good response with sentis above. C: You seem as though you're really engaged in CALD, and I respect the speed and clarity with which you've absorbed the threads and their information. Thanks for making sure that sentis didn't go without a reply-- it's because of this positive attitude I see in members like you that I have infinite respect for this forum. C:
How have things been going for you?

Thanks!
CALD has become my nightly routine now because I daydream a lot about my characters (maybe twice a day). When I CALD I tend to ask my characters to make me lucid quickly, because I find if it is done quickly it is more likely to be subconsciously 'worked out' by my characters. I spent 10 seconds talking to my characters about making me lucid, and it turns out that works better for me if I spent short amounts of time than spending ages (not sure if it does for anyone else).

Before I go to bed, I'm going to find a few pictures of stereotypical futuristic cities so I know what to visualise when I have my next LD.

Teraflare8866: That's great C: . It makes sense that a short bit of time may get the intention set faster-- it's direct and doesn't get sidetracked by chit-chat. Good luck in your furturistic dreams C:

sentis: Okidokie. I assume you have read Pedro's VILD technique post, right? [VILD Technique] That's just incase you haven't C: To answer your question-- yes, you just incubate a dream including your character.
What that means is you imagine your dream with your character in it, and set your intention to enter that dream once you fall asleep. Done correctly, hopefully you will enter your dream and your character will make you lucid.
Best of luck on your CALD-VILD attempts!
