And I just thought this technique could be used to stabilize a dream! I need to relax and feel my surrounding in a dream otherwise I wake up or lose lucidity.
I think it's worth a try :D


It sure works!! I have been getting clarity in my LDs in this way for a few months now.
I don't usually go all the way down the list though, sight and touch is usually enough for me.

Last LD I didn't need any of this :D I only need relax and touch, I don't think I'll need the whole list but maybe other ppl do smile



Current LD goal(s): Change my dream environment

Last night I had a LD and decided I would do the full list.
I got down the full list all the way to taste,) for some reason I could taste chocolate chip cookies)
But doing the full list proved to be a bad move. focusing on all my other senses made my vision fade. by the time I had done the list I had about 50% vision. I then tried to walk but I was focusing to much on my vision, and I woke up.

I'm not sure if this is a problem others may have.
I often work in situations that require me to do things without sight e.g. undoing a bolt / tying rope to things where I can't see it. and while focusing on something, my vision shuts down. It takes me a few seconds of blinking to be able to see again. (i'm not sure why this is)
I think this "focus blackout" is now happening in my dreams.

Its like SSILD. As soon as I try focusing on my senses in different order I cant sleep anymore. The focus on the senses is too strong. No technique for me ! neutral

my LDs have been short so my new goal is to try more extension techniques.

id love to know all of your current favourite techniques. if you posted on this thread years ago, does that technique still work for you? what are you using recently?

for stabilizing, i usually have good luck with trying to touch things in the dream world. its interesting to read the posts above that say that this can come at the detriment of sight. i hadnt thought of that.

usually i most need stabilization when i become lucid from a FA RC in the middle of the night and its pitch black so touch is all i have. perhaps for mid-dream DILDs i should use a sight-based technique instead. i use a nose pinch RC when im lying in bed with my eyes closed and sight-based RCs when im up and about in the day. to me it makes sense to tailor techniques to what senses are available at the time.

so far my best extension technique is to be in the habit of doing an RC every time i wake up even if its just to roll over in the middle of the night. this helps catch the LDs i FA out of. but for during an already stable LD i could use some ideas notify



Current LD goal(s): 5+ minute LD
