Aww, but that's about how it goes for me as well. They say my dreams are too hard for them to get into, and when one of them managed to make it finally, she was only 6" tall in the dream. DX

Mostly though we just chat IWL and every now and again I'll meditate and 'step into' their world.

talking to them IWL is amazing. i can sit on the school bus, or in my desk, and i start talking to them; after a few minutes, it's like i'm talking to someone on the phone. i've spaced out so many times...thank goodness my teachers haven't noticed. :O

Bobby: It's your fault if you get in trouble. We take no blame.

Jack: I blame Bobby.

Bobby: Just because you talk less--

Jack: You talk too much!

bobby actually does talk more than jack, mostly because all jack does is growls--

Jack: Hey, I can do more than growl, you know.

--so bobby does most of the talking.

i say that i'll give up on lucid dreaming for the weekend, and concentrate on remembering my dreams. what say you, guys?

Bobby: If Jack doesn't fall asleep again.

Jack: I told you to wake me!! >:O

Bobby: ...Get rid of your claws and your teeth and three of your tentacles, and then we'll see.

Jack: Wimp.

it's so much fun to hear them argue. they could go on for hours ^^.

Jack: Grrrrr...

Bobby: No comment.

Jack: That WAS a comment lekkerpuh

Bobby: Shut up.

Hey Crooked! Nice to see you up in the CALD thread! :D
I'm glad things seem to be meshing well, as Wolvendeer said :3

Keep us updated on your progress! But Bobby and Jack should try and really chat more actively at the character chats-- The CALD thread is discussion on technique and progress :3 It's nice to have a place where all the chars can stay, and if makes it easier to scan for progress!
You have the link, I'll see you there!

oh, yes, sorry about that. ^_^

update:
so, bobby's in a bit of a mood, because he got mad with me, and now i forgot why, which only makes him want to avoid me more. jack is good, he's trying to reason with bobby, so i am sitting here while they discuss me. O.o

i'm trying to have at least one lucid dream, so i can talk to them better. then afterwards, they can help me go lucid more often and we can hang out more. jack really wants to explore a haunted house [i dislike horror, so it will be a not-super-scary haunted house] and bobby wants to create an island for us to meet in LD's [after he's done being mad at me, that is].

Great to hear! [Not about Bobby's mood, but the good plans ahead :3]
I'm glad you're so motivated to get lucid! It can be thrilling, but I'm sure you realized that already :3

Remember, variety is the spice of life! I think every member of LD4ALL that has tried CALD has always used other methods as well. It's been acknowledged that CALD is rather character-development heavy, and that lucidity is a nice product that can come from use of CALD :3.
It's definitely something that's more useful in conjunction with other methods, though it can be used on it's own. Much like WBTB.

I personally usually only get DILDs myself, but I used frequent reality checks as my way into lucidity. Characters can be helpful in reminding yourself to do reality checks, just so that it becomes routine, even in dreams. :3
Look into other methods you might like to use as well! I promise it can be fun to set your mind on doing something, with the challenge of excecuting mostly thought (or there lack of) based methods :3

I hope you come back to us with an update of lucidity! Good luck!

~Happy lucids,
Tal

yes, i am using WBTB method, and i found an interesting website that suggested i take a dream i just had [after waking up in the middle of the night from WBTB], re-write the ending so that i notice a dreamsign/do a RC/become lucid, and then concentrate on that as i fall asleep. MILD? or something else, idk.

i hope that jack and bobby can help me remember to do RC's throughout the day, because i usually forget... just for a couple days, until i can do it naturally.

so yeah. i'll try out the LD method tonight, and see where it gets me. i'll probably do FILD if this doesn't seem to be working well.

Cool. :3 You definitely do your research! I think you might be the sort to introduce interesting information about CALD into things if you care to :3

Who knows, maybe someone around here will become the next writerscube-prodigy tounge2

oh, i'm not going to bed yet, but okay: future g'night. ^_^

bobby's calmed down...i'll probably talk to him in a few minutes, to let the steam out, and we can go back to being best friends. :D

...i hope bobby isn't still mad at me. i'm feeling really sleepy now...could be his doing. -_-

Hehe hello Crooked!

C.A.L.D is amzing isn't it? ^^ *grins*
I do spaced out in class too practically anytime lessons go too boring, it's a great way to pass time Xd

My two characters I actively talk to are Thunzar and Desmond~
Both are cool =D Desmond been that protective/homely/daddy and Thunzar the ....wild...protective...crazy... kinda person XD The way Bobby and Jack talk is almost the same as me talking to Thunzar XD We love to argue :d
It's really lovely have dreams with them in or at least their voices LOL^^

In a recent lucid dream after listening to a lucid mp3 audio before falling asleep, I tried to spawn Thunzar( his the first one who came in my mind, sorry Desmond ><) . He did appear alright but his as short as an elf?! o.O His suppose to be 185 ..... he didn't talk to me though LOL ><

Me~! woo

2/4 dreams worked~

The remaining 2 was uncalled for, I was having nightmare in both dream and both of them saved me :D

One was a fused between them sorta like wolverine ( I know it's them because there was streaks of blonde( Desmond's colour) against black (Thunzar's) haha and the clothes too half half. They came and slashed the ""spirits"" away ^^

In the second nightmare, I heard Des's voice telling me that it is a dream and nothing to be afraid of, so yeah :D

<mod>This topic continues here siiw </mod>
