Can't Recall Some Dreams

Today my dream recall wasn't as good as the days before, but I'm still happy with what I've managed to remember. It's still much more than what I used to remember anyways.

It's hard for me to remember all of my dreams, because I wake up multiple times in the morning and then I go back to sleep. Whenever I wake up, I think about my dreams, but I don't write them down, because I don't want to wake my brain up.

If I wrote down my dreams, I would have trouble falling asleep. I don't want that to happen, especially if I slept for only 4 hours or something like that.

But, I always want to return to the dream I just had and I try to visualize it. I'm not sure if this always works, because I can't remember it all when I finally wake up to start the day.

I woke up like 4 times this morning, but I failed to wake up to my alarm to perform a technique for inducing lucid dreams.

I was really surprised, LOL... It seemed like I'm having trouble sleeping without waking up often, but when it's really time to wake up, I can't do it...

I didn't even hear the alarm. And my phone was charging away from me, so I would have to get out of bed. I would definitely remember if this happened.

Oh well, I hope I'll be able to wake up the next morning!

But, even though I wasn't able to wake up to perform a technique, I still almost got lucid this morning...



My dream memory begins when I was near a shop that's close to my house. I think I was getting ready to cross the street and go to the shop, but I'm not entirely sure.

Then, a friend of mine sent me a text message. He asked me if I knew the names of the songs that we just heard.

Apparently, we listened to 2 songs and he didn't know the names. But, my dream started after this happened. I realized this when I woke up.

Our dreams often start in the middle of a story, but we don't realize it until we wake up.

Anyway, I knew the names of the songs. They were remixes so I had to go to YouTube to get the exact names.

When I found the songs and copied the names, I tried to put it in my phone's notepad. I did this so I would have both song names in one place, but I had to copy them separately.

Once I copied the first song and went to get the next one, the text in my notepad changed.

I pasted in the second song and went back for the first one again. When I opened up my notepad again, the text had weird symbols and it seemed to be moving.

Damn, that's a great time to realize I'm dreaming, but I didn't... Yet!

I kept on going back to YouTube, copying the song names, and seeing the text in my notepad changing numerous times.

At the end, I was extremely confused and thought it's really weird. And then... I decided to do a reality check!

I pinched my nose... And... And...... And I woke up!

Yeah... I just pinched my nose, I was about to attempt breathing through it, but I just woke up right before I could do it...

Well, at least there's some kind of progress.

For a long time now, I haven't even question reality once while I was dreaming. Even though my dream recall has gotten way better, I can't seem to crack the code anymore...

But, I might just start becoming more aware in my dreams. I really wish I hadn't woken up at that moment, because I could've experienced lucidity again.

Oh well, that only makes me more motivated and focused! Next morning I'm going to become lucid :)

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)



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!
