Lucidity Challenge 57 - Winner announcement!
PostPosted: Thu 01 Dec, 2016  Reply with quote

Introduction

Hi! Welcome to the 57th Lucidity Challenge.

I'm MearaDelia, your host for this challenge. Inspired by the short stories that former challenge hosts used to introduce their topics, I created an overall story + theme for this challenge: Through the Stories of Your Childhood.

Fictional stories, that is smile

In the hidden message below you can read the quest you have been given in this challenge. It's not necessary to read it in order to participate, but it adds an extra layer to it:

The Lucidity Challenge (LC for short) is a game that is intended to provide some additional motivation for people who are trying to have lucid dreams. Each week there will be new challenge tasks posted in this forum thread, and you score points for having a dream (lucid or non-lucid) in which you do one or more challenge tasks. Lucid dreams score more points: the details of the scoring system are described later in this post.

At the end, the person with the highest score is given the option of hosting the next challenge; if they don't want to do it, the option to host passes on the second place scorer, and so on. Apart from that, there are no prizes; the goal is to have fun, both doing the challenge tasks and by having other lucid dreams using the skills you've learned from attempting the challenges.

If you feel uncomfortable about any of the tasks (e.g. you find it frightening, or embarrassing), feel free to skip it. There's no pressure to do all the tasks, and no prizes apart from the getting to write the next one.

Participants in the LC usually post a description of their dreams in the Dream Journal forum, and post in this thread a short post describing which task they think they've completed, hyperlinking to the full description of the dream in their dream journal. If you don't want to post all your dreams, feel free to leave some of them out. It's also OK to leave out parts of dreams, and just post the bit where you did the task, leaving out the more embarrassing elements.

Sign-ups

As usual, we will need a total of 10 participants before we start.
To sign up, post a message in this thread, copying the current list of sign ups and adding your own name at the end. Your sign-up can include a personal goal you want to achieve while lucid.

You are invited, but naturally not obligated, to pick your personal goal related to the theme of this challenge: the (fictional) stories of your childhood. Maybe you'd like to meet your child's hero? Or visit the world where your favourite book or movie took place?

Please use this format:

<number>. <forum name> - <personal goal>
e.g. 1. MearaDelia - Transform into a rabbit and visit Watership Down

The participants of the challenge are:
1. GenghisKhan - The sword in the stone (3 transforms: squirrel, fish and bird + escape a bigger enemy without using any dream power + pull the sword out of the stone)
2. DTDownUnder - Visit Muka/Red acres
3. Arial - Experience being The Very Hungry Caterpillar
4. Koal44 - Sing in a Band on stage in front of an audience
5. footballfreak - bring back an unknown melody from a LD
6. James_UK2008 - Become Scyther (Pokemon)
7. Obfusc8 - Find and enter the Lonely Mountain, steal an item from Smaug's hoard and escape.
8. Letaali - Find the elusive frozen planet
9. Susan_Y - Meditate in a lucid dream
10. Lady Yomi - Find that old castle on the hill with which I used to dream when I was a child, while living in the country with my grandmother & meet the owners!

Good luck to all that participate, and may the best dreamer win! smile

p.s. This is my first time hosting so please give me feedback if I'm doing something wrong smile

Proud to be the first one signing up !

    1. GenghisKhan - Hmmm, gotta think some time about personal task here - Difficulty setting: Task points only while lucid, no LD points for WILDs, all DILDs considered short duration

Count me in!!!

1. GenghisKhan - ???
2.DTDownUnder - ???

I will have to have a decent think about this personal task. My childhood is something i tend not to medle with, as i have found many of my memories of that time to be FM that have resulted from my fight with amnesia. And it pains me to discover them to be fake, so i dont discuss that time with anyone.

But i think it is time to analyze my thoughts, as my dad and i are planning to return to Muka, my childhood home, in about 5 weeks.

When the story mentioned the leterbox, i thought of the Muka letrerbox. This has ararted me thinking about Muka, and i wonder what the old house is like now.

Anyway, im looking forward to this LC.

Hooray! smile

@GeghisKahn, do I understand correctly that normal dreams and WILD's don't give you any points, and other LD's give you full points? And then for DILD's you can't score any more duration points than those 20 for short?

@DTDownUnder, of course go for what feels comfortable to you smile And what an interesting synchronicities happening for you!

In the challenge itself there might be a few childhood related points, but most are about fictional stories.

Sorry if that was confusing !

Tasks points:
- I will claim Task points only if I completed the task while in LD (whatever method I use to get lucid)
- I will not claim task points if I completed the task while in ND

Lucid Dream points (Short/Medium/Long, etc.)
- I will claim Lucid Dream points if I entered the LD through DILD (realize I am dreaming) / DEILD (alias chaining) / OBE (exit body), but I will always consider them as Short (minimum points) - that is because those techniques are challenging to me, so I want the score to serve as motivation factor
- I will not claim Lucid Dream points if I entered the LD through WILD (directly from waking state) - the vast majority of my LDs

Hope it clarifies smile

Hi everyone!

I tried participating in the lsat challange, but I have been traveling through 5 different coutries, and was just too occupied with other things. Now I have found a somewhat solid homebase on Bali for the coming 5 weeks, so yay smile Let's dream!

Meara, what a beautiful story line. I suspect you kidnapped the Muze, for how could you otherwise come up with that inspiration?? :O wink5

1. GenghisKhan - ???
2.DTDownUnder - ???
3. Arial - Experience being The Very Hungry Caterpillar

: eating, becoming silent in the coccoon, transforming into a butterfly, and then fluttering around!
I also still have the personal goal to use a lucid dream to talk with my lost lover, and to receive advise from my Higher Self. But you can only state one goal for th LC, right? So for this one I would like to transform into a butterfly smile

Ahh thank you Koal44 and Arial, and glad you joined as well!

I fully agree, wonderful theme and ideas here
I am totally sure the tasks will be true fun !

In the meantime I have found out a suitable personal task, inspired by Walt Disney's cartoon The Sword in the Stone, a classic I loved when young, and still enjoy as an adult and father - truly entertaining and with very smart messages

In order to complete the personal task I'll have to perform all the below sub-tasks:
1. Transform myself into a fish
2. Transform myself into a squirrel
3. Transform myself into a small bird
4. During 1 or 2 or 3, escape an enemy bigger than me without using any dream power
5. Pull the sword out of the stone
Notes: order of the first three not relevant, but I have to do the 5th as last

I think it's long and challenging enough to keep me busy during the whole LC siiw

Curious to get back into consciously becoming lucid again!
I've taken some steps back from LD which has helped me appreciate dreams as they are and reflect on where my impulse(s) to become lucid come from. I feel like I'm coming from a place now where I can relax into lucidity without forcing it - or coming from a belief that something is lacking if I don't manage to become lucid.
Long story short - I'm in wink5
Personal task will follow in the coming days!



Current LD goal(s): stabilize, exploring my senses, flying without moving my hands

  7. Obfusc8 - Find and enter the Lonely Mountain, steal an item from Smaug's hoard and escape.

To keep things balanced, no lucid points for me and all tasks done while lucid. Although, 'tis the season of Christmas parties, visiting family and a training course, so I might not be around much.

My Dad read The Hobbit to me when I was very young, complete with "scary dragon voice." :D That's probably the root cause of my obsessive bookworm tendancies. Although I don't read as much or as fast anymore, there is always a book or comic on the go, so I'm really looking forward to this challenge because of the theme.

The melody can either be transmitted by a DC or the dream itself.
