Re: Don't give up on the lucid dream when the visuals go awa

Reading this thread, specifically the bit about video going black really paid off for me last night. My LDs would normally end with everything just ending leaving me in the dark. I would typically just open my eyes awake and do a reality check. Last night when one LD would end and turn dark I just w...

Re: Rubbing hands together!

I have been frustrated during my past several LDs due to weak dream stabilization with my last several LDs only lasting 5 minutes or so. I remind my self that I am in a lucid dream and rub my hands together. I try to do this several times so that I don't forget that I am dreaming but I still get a f...

Re: Anyone use Galantamine?

I have had very good results with Galantamine plus choline from the dreamamins. When I tried just one 4 mg capsule I really did not notice anything particular. A week or two later I tried 2 capsules and had an awesome fully lucid experience. I have had great success afterwards using them only on the...

Re: WILD feedback and help needed...

Sorry Ronalds141 I missed your inquiry about those supplements. Quercetin is a flavonoid which enhances the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in the brain. It is closely related to vitamin C. Some people claim that apple juice increases their chances to LD. Quercetin is derived from the skins of fru...

Re: Reality checks failing

So. When I am lucid dreaming I have been reminding myself every so often that I am dreaming and rubbing my hands together at the same time. I start to feel in my dream as if I am getting very sleepy then I wake. Extra reality checks helps to stop the wake up? I will give that a try. Also, when I do ...

Re: Reality checks failing

I have been in a dream that I just knew was a dream and attempted a reality check to prove it out. I was using just one check which was to push two fingers through the palm of the opposite hand. This check failed me every time; it would feel just like it does in waking life. I made the mistake of re...

Re: melatonin

I sometimes take it. My understanding is that you take it when you go to bed and it suppresses REM sleep in the first part of the night. When it wears off your REM rebounds in the later half of the night, so you stay in REM longer during the most productive time to dream.

Bucket list - please contribute.

I heard it is best to plan ahead of time for what you will do in your next LD. I had a very successful LD last Saturday. I think my LD was so good because I had a plan already ahead of time and stuck to it once I got into the LD. I started this thread as a way to incubate ideas for what to do in a L...

Re: Wierd Dream

I believe that I have seen images and writing from that video in my HI. I seen the words "Lucid Dreamer" over and over again like all paper during my HI and the full background kind of looked like one of the images in the video.
