No More Interruptions!

Ehh, I hate when I'm not able to concentrate on lucid dreaming for extended periods of times. Recently I didn't post for a week. And just when I started posting again, I didn't come back home for 3 days.

Not posting is a big deal for me, because I'm not getting any closer to becoming a lucid dreamer. I rarely do reality checks and I'm just consumed by the activities when I go out somewhere.

Not sleeping at home is also difficult for me, because it takes a lot of time to fall asleep and I tend to get less rest like this.

Still, I did have a lot of dreams, and I wrote them down to my journal. But other than that, I wasn't consistent enough, because I didn't do a lot of reality checks.

I didn't think about lucid dreaming much. And, I hadn't had a lucid dream for so long now... Well, at least I'm able to recall my dreams.

They are still very awesome, and it's still hard to get up from bed, because I want to continue dreaming.

On Friday I left home to celebrate a birthday. I didn't even go to sleep and I spent all night partying. When I went to bed in the morning, I couldn't fall asleep anymore.

I didn't even drink much, but I consumed some energy drinks, which I don't ever do. Since I couldn't fall asleep, I just went outside and walked around in a forest.

So, I've basically spent 2 days awake.

When I finally managed to fall asleep the next day, I slept for over 16 hours. I had sooooo many dreams... I wasn't even able to recall all of them, but I never written down so much details about my dreams in one day.

This was a powerful dreaming experience, LOL. But still, not lucid...

The good thing is, I don't think there will be any more birthday parties or anything else that will interrupt my focus on lucid dreaming for quite some time now!



Digging For Potatoes

This morning, I had more than a few dreams like most of the time, but I wasn't able to remember everything, because I didn't write my dreams down right away.

My dream memory begins when I came to a big field looking for a job. Right when I came there I instantly got a job.

A guy dropped me off with his car and told me to pick up potatoes from a specific field. There were no potatoes to be seen, though.

Apparently, he had to see if I had what it takes, so it was a test. A test to find potatoes in a field that has no potatoes. If you ask me, that's a shitty test, LOL.

Anyway, suddenly some green leaves appeared out of nowhere. I tried searching for those potatoes in there, but I couldn't find any.

Then, the same guy came back and I told him it's impossible to find anything here. So, he started showing me how to find those invisible potatoes.

I started taking out the roots and the ground started forming holes. Within those holes potatoes appeared!

I took some of them out and I felt extremely rewarded. Like I've achieved something big, although it was just a few potatoes....

I wanted to make sure if this will work every time, so I took out more roots. The effect was the same. Holes in the ground, potatoes inside.

Plus, it felt soooo easy. I felt like I could do this all the time and I couldn't help but feel extremely rewarded.

It didn't last for long, though. I mean the dream. I took out a few more roots, found a few more potatoes, and then I don't remember what happened next. I started dreaming of something else.



Some Dream Interpretations

In my dream I was digging potatoes. What could that possibly mean? Here's what I've found:

If you gather (dig) potato it portends future success. The richer the harvest is, the bigger success and material prosperity you will gain in life. (Source)

Well, the harvest wasn't big at first. I wasn't able to find anything at all. But, later I learnt how to find the potatoes and it felt very easy to gather them.

I guess the main thing is how I felt during the dream. Like I've mentioned before, I felt extremely rewarded for doing this. Plus, digging for potatoes is hard work.

So, might I be rewarded for my hard work somewhere? I guess I will find out!

But, at the start of my dream, I was searching for a job. This could also mean that I'm not doing enough currently, and I need to put in more work into something.

Maybe an opportunity is around me, but I haven't noticed it yet. Maybe, that opportunity would be extremely rewarding?

I'll try to be more aware of my surroundings.

I'm ending this post here. At the end of each post I'll include my first post (down below) about this journey as it explains why and how I'm doing this! (Full Post Here)

My Lucid Dreaming Journey (19).png


I Will Be Doing This Every Day!

The main reason I want to start lucid dreaming, is for self improvement.

I've been reading a lot about it and studies have shown that you can actually improve certain abilities by doing it in your dreams.

For example, if you wan't to learn a foreign language, you can practice it in your dreams. Since you're working with your subconscious mind while you're sleeping, you might find out that you know words that you were never aware of while conscious.

It's really all up to your creativity to what you wanna learn and improve upon in your dreams. Is it basketball that you want to become better at? You can do that!

Do you want to become a better fucker? Nobody is holding you back! Just make a nasty slut appear in front of you and do whatever you want with her!

Apparently while sleeping, the neural pathways engaged in the activity are strengthened, and not only imagined or visualized.

To achieve lucid dreaming, a lot of action has to be taken. Well... Some find it really easy to lucid dream, but most have to achieve it the hard way.

It's really important to think about lucid dreaming throughout the day. This way you're telling your subconscious mind that this is what you're focusing on and what you want, thus it gives you the access to control the dream world.

There are quite a few things I will be doing in order to achieve this goal!

  1. So, first of all, I will be posting my whole lucid dreaming journey here on Steemit every day.

  2. I will be writing down all of my dreams on a journal. A dream journal is basically essential if you want to achieve lucid dreaming.

  3. I will do at least 30-50 reality checks every day.

  4. Have a sleeping rhythm. That means I will be going to sleep at the same time every night. I'll also wake up at the same time every morning as well.

  5. I will also experiment with some techniques to induce lucid dreams.

  6. I won't look at any screens (computer, TV or even phone) 30-60 minutes before bed, because I've read that this helps a lot. For those 30-60 minutes I will be meditating.

  7. Talk, read and think about lucid dreaming constantly.

  8. Occasionally I will listen to lucid dreaming binaural beats and hypnosis.

  9. I will use an app called Awoken. This app is designed to help you achieve lucid dreaming. It reminds you to do reality checks throughout the day and it has a dream journal, which is where I will be writing down all my dreams when I wake up.

  10. I will experiment with the supplement called Dream Leaf, I already ordered it and I will use it when it arrives. I will take it only once or at most twice every week to see if it changes anything about my dreams and the ability to become lucid.

UPDATE: I do not recommend Dream Leaf, because it affected my dream recall negatively in the long run. But, I did have my first lucid dream because of it.



Tracking All My Progress!

So, like I've mentioned before, I will be tracking all my progress and I'll be posting about it every day here on Steemit.

Also, after I achieve lucid dreaming, I won't stop posting about my experiences for some time still.

When I achieve my goal, I will be writing down a lot of experiences that I have inside the dream world, and I'll experiment if it's actually possible to improve real life skills while sleeping.

I set a personal goal to achieve lucid dreaming within 30 days starting today. I'm really excited and hopefully I'll be able to do that even faster than 30 days!

This is not the first time I try to achieve lucid dreaming, but I never took it seriously and I was too inconsistent, so I never even came close to becoming lucid.

But this time I'm gonna SMASH it and record the whole journey on this blockchain!

UPDATE: I achieved lucid dreaming for the first time on day 12


I will become lucid tonight!
