Getting Lucid with Help from a DC
« on: February 06, 2010, 08:18:51 PM »
Yesterday I had a good long lucid and remembered something that I wanted to try. I asked a DC if they would help me out by trying to make me lucid in my dreams. I don't really have high hopes for this, but thought it would be interesting if it works.

Moonbeam has had this as a goal for a while, and a couple others here as well.

I've told this story in a dozen places, but it fits here.  I had this great idea once to create a creature that would then return and get me lucid when I recognized it.  I created a big electric blue butterfly.  It was gorgeous.  It flew away in the dream I created it and hasn't been back since.
What truly matters is not built of right and wrong; but of grace, and of love.

I'll keep you updated. The DC I asked to do it is my girlfriend, so its unavoidable that she will show up in my dreams a lot. Let me know if any of you have luck with this. I think that this will work best if I remind her several times in my lucids to build up some kind of subconscious reminder. But really, I have no idea.

It is possible to have the same DCs show up once in a while and say in no uncertain terms that you're dreaming.

The trick is listening to them.  :shakehead:

Yea.  DC-Pj told me to an RC last night and I showed him why it wasn't necessary.  :shakehead:
:therethere:  I understand.

 :bliss:
Well sometimes they're very unclear and confusing, saying only things like "you are dreaming," or "this is a dream."  :hrm:  :'(  You'd have to be there.  They're very clever, and say it in such a way that you have to argue with them.
