Notifications Not Working


I've mentioned many time before that I use Awoken app to write down my dreams and to get notifications to do reality checks.

The notifications worked really well and I set the app to notify me 30 times every day. For some reason, it no longer notifies me to do reality checks...

I tried changing the number of notifications but it still doesn't work. It does notify me like 1 time a day, but that's all. I couldn't find a reason for this. I think this is just the app itself.

So, I just downloaded an app called Lucidity. So far I've had it for like 2 hours, but it still hasn't made a single notification to do a reality check. Maybe something is wrong with my phone, not the apps?

Who knows, but I'll give some time for this app. It might start notifying me after some time.

I've also completely finished Dream Leaf. The bottle is completely empty!

Am I happy that I bought this supplement? Well, because of it I had my first lucid dream. It lasted for a while and it was very vivid. I'm not sure if I would've achieved lucid dreaming this fast if I hadn't taken Dream Leaf.

Still... I think it did impact my dream recall negatively in the long run. Plus, it didn't work anymore once I finished more than half of the bottle.

It's like my body got used to it or something. I guess it's an okay supplement to experiment with, but I won't be buying anymore Dream Leaf, because my personal experience wasn't the best.

Waking Up Naturally


I didn't have any dreams yesterday, once again... This morning it was like usual. Couldn't remember anything at all, until later in the day.

It was hard to remember a lot of detail. I only managed to recall some images in my head, but I wasn't able to write down a lot. I only put like 20 words into my journal today.

Keywords that might bring back the images when I read it in the future. It's kinda hard to achieve lucidity when I can't even remember my dreams good enough.

Oh well, I think my recall will come back, because I'm out of Dream Leaf, LOL.

Anyway, I'm not even gonna talk about my dreams today, because like I've said, there's not much that I was able to write down.

I will be waking up by alarm again... Yeah, there were a couple of days where I slept longer than I should've and I oversleep too much, because I don't even wake up once during the night!

I'm in some deep sleep and I can't even wake up in the early morning to perform any methods that might induce lucid dreams.

I plan to use the alarm for a week or so, to get my body used to waking up at specific times and then I will ditch the alarm again.

Like I've mentioned in some of my previous posts, I don't think it's very healthy to use alarms every day. I want my body to wake up naturally.

But, it seems like I have to strictly maintain the routine once I'm ditching the alarm, because one or two days of sleeping differently, and my body won't wake up naturally at times that I would like to.

Other than this, not much to talk about for today. I haven't had a lucid dream for a while now, but tonight I feel like it's gonna be the day!

I'm going to become lucid this morning! Well, at least I'll try my best to make this happen!

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.

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
