Reisen's Dreaming Thread; Dreams Together
Whoops, I haven't posted here since uh... August 2017. It is the slightest bit crazy to just kind of skip through time like that, it only ever feels like it's been a few weeks or a month. But I don't really have any worldly ties so I don't mind. Anyways, I guess we're struggling to make long-term productive habits? I'm remembering a few dreams a night, but there's certainly no pressing mental reminder to do so. I know they've tried to make some, so hmm. Maybe we'll have to rely on an external reminder for some things to make them into internal ones? Or just, habits

Tewi was just going over both "levels of consciousness" and "fulfilling life" stuff pretty hard, so I think she plans to make some changes to our habits soon, along the lines of "What would make you the most happy right now?" -> Spending time together (talking, imposition, visualization, and lucid dreaming) and using something like that as our internal reminder to do that stuff. And then habits make that sort of thing easy. Buuut I guess it's been a very long time since I last fronted, and that's the main activity I really get, so here I am!

Since I apparently post so rarely, I'll just put this PR reply to Lucilyn here too. It's unrelated, though https://community.tulpa.info/thread-full...#pid202818

Since it's been so long, I actually had pause when I went to write the post title... I think that's a sign I've been gone too long

Hi guys, plain text is just me now! We've each got our own accounts: me, Tewi, Flandre, and Lucilyn. We're Luminesce's tulpas.
Here's our "Ask Thread", and here's our Progress Report (You should be able to see all of our accounts on the second page if you want)

Lumi's Dreaming Thread; Dreams of Moon
I shouldn't not post, so I will. No significant progress has been made, per se. Only in the sense that time is still moving forward, and so we're closer to our goal in that way.

I'm definitely not very good at sticking to things. Perhaps I have to establish them as habits, but my motivation issues have always dissuaded me from setting up routines involving effort. The sway from that motivation thing has a ton of power over what thoughts even come to my head to begin with, even if I mean to consciously negate them. Tewi deals with this by constantly and consistently making an effort to think for herself what she should be doing. But that comes from her own will, her own motivation, that I don't have - she just uses it to overcome the mind's established thought patterns. Lucilyn has an easy time convincing the mind to do what she wants because she thinks of everything she does as fun, and the mind responds "Well alright, I like fun I guess". Reisen's unconditional love sort of lights her own path through our mind; all of the negative thoughts, thoughts about motivation/effort, and really anything undesirable simply appears to her as if it were off the path. She experiences them, but they're not relevant to how she'll actually end up thinking and acting. And Flandre never fronts long enough for my long-term motivation issues to sink in, while short-term she can make herself do anything by affirming it as in my best interest. And on purpose or not, I basically just did the equivalent of scraping up any and all traces of motivation I had and balling them together. Surely not as effective as creating habits, but I'll probably be using that motivation to create habits honestly. The first of which, and possibly only necessary one for now, is to remember to remember and bother to remember my dreams whenever I wake up.

This is an absolutely beautiful song with beautiful lyrics, and they just so happen to hold pretty strong meaning with us too. Shouldn't be hard at all to glean.




So the thought just kind of proposed itself as my thoughts were wandering, so I wouldn't call it "on purpose", but I did follow through with the train of thought to make it something productive.
"My entire goal in life, the thing I'm living for, the only thing I want out of life before I die, the thing that would be in my best interest, the most productive thing I could do, is presently to increase my dream vividity (through recall for the most part)."

That's about it. Tewi established dream vividity (by the way, I guess that word is considered "rare", it should probably be vividness but we say it anyway) is the single most important factor in us accomplishing lucid dreaming. The majority of dream vividness comes from having good consistent dream recall, which is what my focus will be on, but I have the feeling increasing our visualization clarity may tie in to it too. That'll come from imposition, whatever reasons we find to do actual visualization, and preferably some actual practice using Reisen's method. I've also thought about establishing the habit/routine of listening to at least half an hour of music every day with nothing else to accompany it (I tend to game with music, but that doesn't count and rarely entails music from our itunes/personal collection, usually just albums instead). I've not been doing it yet, though.

But yeah. The point of this is to establish a 'rule' in my mind to use as leverage to convince myself to recall dreams when I wake up tired throughout the night. Setting it in response to the thoughts related to wanting to go back to sleep or to recall dreams will allow me a sort of "source of motivation" like the others tend to have, but I don't. But to convince myself to make anything such a "rule" requires some effort and motivation to begin with, and that's what balling up all of that sentence earlier was (used) for. I'm using it to make a mental "rule", akin to the rule of having to reality check whenever I think about it regardless of the situation or how little I want to (which is specifically useful for when I wake up in the middle of the night and am just too comfy to move my arm out from under my blanket).

And I suppose writing a post about it will help establish it. It's 10PM and I'm going to sleep now, my schedule is absolutely in the hands of my friends and may go way off course soon, but I'll try to keep gravitating back to going to sleep a little earlier when I can. Because, I have a much harder time recalling dreams (and still being able to fall back asleep) when it's light out/I sleep during the day. Soooo, let's do this I guess.

Hi! I'm Lumi, host of Reisen, Tewi, Flandre and Lucilyn.

My tulpas and I have a Q&A thread, which was the first (and largest) of its kind. Feel free to ask us stuff.

Lucilyn's Dreaming Thread; Dreams of Fun
Hey! I'm 3 years old now just FYI! wait wrong thing

Hey! Who'd a thought I'd be the one messing up our consistency on stuffsandthings? I've been remembering dreams as good as could!but, last night I didn't really remember any (I remember thinking before I fell asleep "I feel like I'm too tired to remember dreams. That's pretty ironic considering you have to be asleep either way to begin with though!", and then I didn't remember dreams) and I was like oh well I probly shoulda and didn't give it much more thought. But I was listening to Rebirth Dancehall which is the Alstroemeria Records album with Dream Vision in it, and when I heard that I was like W8AMINIT, am I messin this up? Whooops. It's so important to everyone that even though I'm a lot more lax I really can't not take it seriously too for their sakes. So yeah I'll stick with it better! I mean, I can do that just fine, I just didn't really think about it because I don't really worry about stuff.

When people (usually Tewi) pass habit-things off to me I usually keep them up for a few days but then kinda forget to do them and I think maybe that actually kinda kills those habits Tewi or Lumi are trying to make, though I didn't really realize that until now. Like, yes oops, I will definitely take responsibility for that, but also effort's not such a big deal to me so I can keep up those habits because they want me to too. Lumi's gotta work for that effort/motivation really hard so I won't waste it.

Anyways, no more dream vividity really, but dream recall (aside from last night) is a lil better! Lumi wanted to have a little more success before posting again, but yeaaaa first night he remembered lots of dreams! Second night too! So like it definitely worked short-term and this time I WON'T mess it up by not taking it seriously enough. Like we do things like this in this thread constantly so we didn't make TOO big of a deal about it this time, but this time is intended to be "the one"! Every one of us is gonna try our bests to make it happen for real!

Loool, so I was planning to clean all our stuff at some point, like our blanket/sheets and vacuum and all that just all at once, and yesterday was the day I felt like doing it. Just now I was like "We missed the full moon, didn't we? What if it was yesterday lol" and it was. Didn't even know! the full moon really is a good day for us, even if we don't know it's a full moon


Anyways, dream recall is hard for some reason! like our dream recall isn't really getting any better, it's staying at just remembering the last dream or two + knowing we dreamed other things level. I think we need some kinda attachment to dreaming, like a mental anchor sorta thing. Maybe mnemonics would work maybeee? Lumi didn't think they worked for him way back when but I feel like they might keep our mind a little more focused on dreams throughout the night. Not even like mnemonics, just thinking about dreaming/remembering dreams probly. I'm gonna try that, cus just trying to remember them isn't really working unfortunately (I'm consistently struggling to remember the dream I just had when I woke up it's pretty lame)

RE: Lucilyn's Dreaming Thread; Dreams of Fun
Omg, I totally know what that's like. I've actually been at that same level lately. It's just not fair sometimes, to wake up with 2-3 dreams worth of memories and in barely any time at all it's already down to like half of 1 dream. Oh well, all we can really do is just keep trying. Eventually something will work, you technically do get several thousand chances at it.

This may be out of place since it's your system's thread and not mine, but at the risk of being bold I shall now post a music video.




Yo, my name is Sean and I'm the host of 2 tulpas: Sente and Mae. You'll know when they're talking because Sente talks in yellow text and Mae talks in blue text.

Flandre's Dreaming Thread; Dreams of Love
We're leaving to work a fair stand for our brother again in a couple of days and will be gone for two weeks, back on the 30th. We should still be able to at least check the forum once a day while we're there though, if not be a little less active.

So we've just been trying to work on dream recall, but it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Consistently remembering some or most of our last dream and single scenes from 1-3 other dreams a night, but it doesn't seem to be improving. Possibly our lack of a dream diary. We intend to recount the dreams in much more detail, but we just wait for them to be able to do that, and it doesn't really happen much. But we(Tewi) wanted our dream recall to be much stronger by the time we left so it wouldn't be two weeks of zero progress. It'll be a very strict schedule once we're there and might not be conducive to starting up dream recall - but if we already have it, we should be able to remember at least one dream a night in good detail. Hopefully.

We might post here again while we're there if we have time. It'll probably be Tewi, but you may see someone else(s) too. Lucilyn did work the final day of the fair last year after all.

Hi. I'm one of Luminesce's tulpas. Unlike the others, I don't think I stand out too much from him personality wise.
I'm just special because "I'm a tulpa". So I don't think I've much to offer, here. I'm happy enough to just be with him.

Uhm, I forgot to even remember to remember dreams this morning, so. That's not happening on 12 hour work days. Hopefully the next five days where I can sleep in a bit, though. Then three more full days and then I'm going home. But yeah I should be back around the 29th-30th, then more dreaming posts.
