    liked your book in the linked post It reminded me that I may want to include a part about Dream Stabilization All the information and materials I used for my lucidity workshops was lost in a house fire some years ago so my consolidation project is also serving as an outline to rebuild the workshop materials I appreciate you reviewing and commenting on this project and hope you ll continue to do so as I continue to flesh it out Oneironaut experience 28 years Average LDs per month Usually 16 to 30 depending on whether or not I want to I enjoy helping others and answering questions Prince Demitri Posts 168 Joined 30 Dec 2015 11 47 Location Eugene Oregon USA Top Re Consolidated Lucidity Advice Discussion by shutterbugjen 12 Jan 2016 15 46 Thank you for doing this Dem I look forward to seeing more installments in the Consolidation I have a question for you as a long time oneironaut do lucid dreams come naturally to you now or do you find yourself practicing particular techniques to induce lucidity Do you find your level of lucidity to be different when you enter the lucid state in different ways Thanks for a dreamer night s the only time of day Jack Feldman Santa Fe shutterbugjen Posts 84 Joined 18 Dec 2015 14 59 Top Re Consolidated Lucidity Advice Discussion by Prince Demitri 12 Jan 2016 19 40 shutterbugjen wrote Thank you for doing this Dem I look forward to seeing more installments in the Consolidation Thanks Jen I hope it s helpful to many I have a question for you as a long time oneironaut do lucid dreams come naturally to you now or do you find yourself practicing particular techniques to induce lucidity Excellent question It s a little bit of both actually I have a daily meditation practice which will be outlined step by step in the meditation section of the project which takes me about 5 minutes each morning and another 5 to 10 minutes at night as I fall asleep The morning meditation helps my day start off and usually continue with a bright and positive outlook about myself others and life The evening meditation assists with targeting specific things I d like to dream about and enhances dream recall vividity stabilization and lucid awareness when I dream I also continue to use reality checks during the day as a semi regular thing I do When my dream cycle the natural cycle of dreaming which I believe is tied to hormonal cycles which can increase or decrease the quality of my dreams is low I tend to focus on doing more reality checks in order to maintain good recall However when my dream cycle is high when the quality of my dreams is better and lucidity is easier I focus less on reality checks and more on targeting These days even when I m not trying to become lucid in my dreams I average about a

    Center and recorded in Michael Raduga s The Phase A Practical Guidebook Granted of course that Raduga et al do not employ the DEILD acronym as they refer to indirect and direct methods of entering the phase state The useful distinction is pretty obvious aside from the acronym having gained popularity though as you enter the lucid dream state as soon as you exit a dream and are about to wake up As soon as one perceives the sleeping body and bed beneath it it is time to act before the window of time to enter the phase state becomes too narrow in which case refer to the diagram in the link I already posted to achieve lucid dreaming through a slightly longer way If one masters DEILD there is really no stopping how quickly and effectively one enters the state as opposed to getting out of bed and waiting around for the right time as in WBTB So yes labels and acronyms are useful and particularly so here regarding methods of induction And DEILD will only be confused with a DILD which is closer to hit and miss than anything else if you re not paying attention to the E in the acronym Simply put DEILD provides the shortest cut Therein lies your useful distinction Lucid dreaming is initiated during or subsequently after dream exit hence the dream exit initiated lucid dream For someone who claims to have many years of experience I m surprised you require this explanation EDITED I found the DEILD thread Here it is and I hope you read everything Prince http www world of lucid dreaming com forum viewtopic php f 2 t 13433 Post made via Android Empty cognizance of one taste suffused with knowing is your unmistaken nature the uncontrived original state when not altering what is allow it to be as it is and the awakened state is right now spontaneously present Padmasambhava Summerlander Posts 2848 Joined 22 Sep 2011 19 52 Top Re Consolidated Lucidity Advice Discussion by shutterbugjen 26 Jan 2016 03 38 That s a great thread Summer Thanks I ve been noticing that I tend to wake up naturally after about 5 hours of sleep and I usually lie still for a minute to recall what I just dreamed so I can write a few key words about it before going back to sleep so I ll have something to refer to for my dream journal I ve never really been aware of a dream ending just finding myself awake and thinking over the dream I was just in I m going to try and remember this and when I feel myself waking up try to get back to the dream My only LDs thus far have been DILDs and like you said somewhere else that s hit or miss I d love to be able to have a technique to employ that should help to kick start lucidity Thanks for a dreamer night s the only

    where I think I m gonna die or just uneasy situations like swimming in a river where you are thinking there might be an alligator Lol Or even dreams where I fall from a deadly height although those give me an unpleasant feeling physically I can t really describe where I feel it in my body though Maybe my head and chest like an extreme pressure or something as soon as I start falling But I wake up going THAT WAS COOL And the more memorable the better Carter Blunt Posts 26 Joined 15 Dec 2015 11 36 Top Re Do you care whether your dreams are lucid or not by Luciddreamer007 24 Jan 2016 21 03 It depends on the content of the dream If its a nightmare i prefer it to be a LD because you obviously know that its all a mindfuck everything is amplificated in dreams except memory expect the unexpected A LD is like being drunk the morning after you dont remember everything you get horny and when you hit the ground you dont feel pain Luciddreamer007 Posts 47 Joined 25 Oct 2015 10 56 Top Display posts from previous All posts 1 day 7

    a feeling as tho they haven t fallen asleep All reported OBEs and NDEs near death experiences have resulted from either intentionally or accidentally entering the state of mind that this practice encourages More about body trances NDEs and OBEs is given in the post Effective Meditation further in this series Wake Back To Bed WBTB is a method where the dreamer wakes from sleep and then intentionally relaxes back to sleep while their mind is ready to be awake This can often lead to slipping directly into a lucid dream The trick to this method is remembering to do this immediately upon awakening and then visualizing yourself back in a scene from the dream you just woke from Some people prefer to use the term Dream Exit Induced Lucid Dream DEILD for the WBTB method but I advise against this practice as it increases the amount of confusion for many people due to the acronym being similar to the dream Type DILD More about the WBTB method is given in the post Recalling Dreams

questions Prince Demitri Posts 168 Joined 30 Dec 2015 11 47 Location Eugene Oregon USA Top The Lucidity Mindset by Prince Demitri 13 Jan 2016 01 08 One of the most important and many times most difficult things to do is to condition our mind to think in a way that is most effective for achieving lucidity In this part I ll discuss three areas of focus What conditioning is and why it s important How intent and expectation effect conditioning An overview of a few conditioning methods and how they work What conditioning is and why it s important Conditioning is anything we do on a regular basis which forms and supports our habits Habits can be beneficial and they can be destructive as well as anything between these two and in some cases even a combination of them The entire industry of self help materials available today focuses on how we can condition our minds bodies emotional states relationship concepts etc to alter our habits and change our lives for the better The same is true for lucid dreaming It s not enough to want to do something we must take steps to develop and maintain habits that support what we want to achieve Everything we do supports one habit or another Because of this everything we do is a form of conditioning in some way Being aware of the habits we have and the things we do to support them can help us take control of changes we want to make for ourselves But identifying our habits and what we do to support them is just the beginning of the process of taking control Any skill that someone does well requires training conditioning to build and support the habits related to that skill Most skills also require some maintenance in order to keep them sharp and efficient Lucidity is a skill which also requires conditioning and maintenance The many methods and skills practiced by oneironauts are for conditioning and maintaining ourselves for sharp and consistent lucid dreaming Anyone who wishes to be an oneironaut must condition themselves to develop the habits that promote and support lucidity How intent and expectation effect conditioning As I said above it s not enough to want to do something but that doesn t mean that desire and intention aren t a major influence in what we choose to do they certainly are We can think of these things like ingredients in making a cake They all work together when used in the correct amounts and in the correct way to achieve the desired outcome The same idea remains true for lucid dreaming When it comes to lucid dreaming intent desire and expectation each play two different roles One in our waking lives and another while we re dreaming In our waking lives our desire is to condition ourselves to have lucid dreams We use that desire to motivate ourselves to act with intent to develop habits which support lucidity and dream recall We act with intent toward our goal in many ways such as keeping dream journals doing reality checks thruout the day and meditating regularly Our expectation is the key to how effective the methods we practice are toward achieving and maintaining our goal Expectation is probably the most overlooked aspect of our conditioning this is a big reason why it sometimes takes people months to achieve lucidity while others achieve it in less than a week I ll talk more about some things to expect and when in order to maximize the effectiveness of various conditioning methods In our dreaming lives our desires intents and expectations play a large role in our ability to control our dreams while lucid This is where having a dream plan and targeting come in as well When we have a dream plan target which is thought about and may be written down if desired while awake then it s much easier to steer a dream in the direction of what we want to dream about Expectation plays an interesting role in the dreamscape and is often the reason why some reality checks can fail even while dreaming For instance when trying to use a specific dream power such as walking thru a wall the outcome relies completely on whether or not the dreamer expects the power to work or whether they expect a solid wall An overview of a few conditioning methods and how they work Here are a few examples of methods and the intent and expectation that helps make the most of them Reality Checks There are many different kinds of reality checks that can be done which I ll discuss more in a later part of this series For
