You should probably add the acronym DG == Dream Guide. I don't think I saw it there in the list.

I think you missed the forum wink5

It should have been in feedback and suggestions forum...

Anyway...
DS-dream sign(I don't know if that acronym is already in use)EDIT: yes, it's in use.
BV- black void
SP is already in use, so it won't work for spiritual guide EDIT: oops, now I realize what I just said... my bad

It would be cool if the chroniclers had their acronym (like CH)

//This one is getting some attention at the other dreaming forum (not DV), so I figured I'd submit it here as an acronym.

Well, following the results of this topic...

CD = Conscious Dream. A dream where you are aware that your surroundings are a dream. Akin to Lucid Dream.

NCD = Non Conscious Dream. A dream that is lived without realizing the illusion the dream creates around you. Synonymous with Normal Dream.

Unconscious/preconscious (UC/PC)

Most psycologists, including Freud himself, actually avoid using the term subconsious because it is a little too generic. The use these terms instead.

Preconscious (PC): that which is not in the conscious mind but can be easily made conscious; memories and the like.

Unconscious (UC): that which is not in the conscious mind and is not easily made conscious. Instincts, impulses, repressed thoughts or memories.

The two can also be put together as the Unconscious Mind (UCM), and the definition of that is the same as what we use for the SC on our mouseover.

This might be a good alternative for people who don't like to use SC due to the New Age connotations that can come with the word. Not to mention, if you say UCM, it is a much less broad term than SC, which can have any number of meanings.

Since everyone (allmost everyone) knows this technique, it should be an acronym for it... But first a very important acronym, which should deffinetly be in use...

RS = Rollover Signal. The body checks on the mind, to see if it has allready fallen asleep, by sending a strong signal to roll over.

SDR = Stop, Drop and Roll. A powerfull technique to trick your body to fall asleep. Place your hands above your head, while lieing in the bed. Then place them beneath your body. When you get the RS and feel like you can't resist it any longer, gentely roll over and remain in that position.

I can't believe that there's no acronym for "dreamworld". There should be something like:

DW = dreamworld
DL = dreamlife (since RL (real life) allready exists, there should also be a dreamlife tounge1)

First of all I'd like you to see that video from I certain show I recently discovered that clears up something ^^

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMZynsHG8QM
(awesome show imo btw )


Now the following are my personal Martian-Initialisms that I use for myself and I thought I just share them here:

LDC = Lucid Dream Chat (referred to #ld4all)

SILD= Sound Induced Lucid dream

LL = Lucidity Level (My personal scale, goes from 0-5)

DA = Dream Artifact (Ideas and things that you take from your dreams and transver them into real live. e.g. A painting of a dream scene, a gadged that occured in your dream and that you re-built in RL etc.)

DN = Dream Notes (Notes that you take when waking up, writing in keywords to help you memorize the dream later when you have time to write them down in your DJ)

SOREM = Sleep onset REM . (e.g.: SOREM-ND / SOREM-LD = dreams that occur right after you fall asleep )



Current LD goal(s): Go to Lucix.
