Hello, Oneironauts!

Postby mardlverse » 04 Jan 2015 03:27

Hi. My name is Don. I'm originally from Florida, though I relocated to Canada a little over two years ago. My day job is at an answering service, but I'm also an aspiring writer. I'm married, no kids, but with a handful of pets.

I have recently become re-fascinated in lucid dreaming. I have had bouts of lucid dreaming on and off throughout my life, including multiple cases of flying and being able to fight back against nightmares. In 1987 I purchased an issue of "Omni" magazine that had a pull-out section regarding lucid dreaming by Stephen LaBerge. I was too young to actively follow the instructions then and have since lost the magazine (and the online version of that issue is sadly missing the insert).

I recently re-watched "Inception", and I loved it more the second time around. A search online led me to a wealth of info about lucid dreaming, and here I am.

Basically, I am trying to become an active lucid dreamer for enjoyment purposes, but to also help nourish my creativity and to work out some issues I have with the way I relate to people and the way I learn information (I have been diagnosed with borderline Asperger Syndrome).

I'm starting with meditation and attempting lucid dreaming induction through the MILD technique first. Are there any pointers that anyone can give? I've been trying MILD for several days now, but so far the only result was a negative one: the first night I couldn't sleep because I was concentrating too hard on visualizing my target dream, I believe.

Anyway: thanks for reading this lengthy introduction! :lol:
