The algorithm didn’t trigger an audio track, as it was looking for multiple events like this in a row. I will update it to optionally trigger on only a single event, because of the vividness of the dream. The spike looks similar to when I open my eyes while awake.
So I hooked up the speakers near my head, put on the modded MindWave and went to sleep. As seems to be the norm for me, I didn’t start dreaming until around 5 am. The sound file that is triggered is a recording of my wife saying “Tom you are dreaming, take control”. Well when I started dreaming and the sound file was played the shock of hearing she who must be obeyed was so startling that it instantly woke me up with absolutely no memory of the dream and my heart racing. Maybe a simple chime sound would work better.
Another track played in the morning and woke me up during REM sleep, feeling very refreshed.
Preparation: chewed a few calea leaves.
Preparation: chewed a few Calea leaves four hours earlier.
Although I was focusing on the end of the dream and thinking through all the things that I would have done differently with more awareness, I simply started seeing the room I was in through closed eyes. There were things that I knew could not be there and I was able to get up ever so slowly and set out on an epic adventure.
It was so real, but I couldn’t tell if I was dreaming, started to have feelings passed into the dreams.
I think I’ll just record days I do the FIELD instead of adding days I don’t since I haven’t had the chance to practice the FIELD before Jan. 25th because I was getting adjusted to my college schedule.
And I also would wake up with only 30 minutes to get to my first class of the day, so it was just too stressful for me at the time.
I might have to do this for college because I wouldn’t want to oversleep and miss my classes.
Day 9, I did two WBTB with the FIELD, recalled 4 dreams overall from those two attempts.
Tried to WBTB with the FIELD method, nothing, I couldn’t even sleep. There is some data missing because around the 5 AM-ish mark, it only gets recorded until 6 AM. The other 30 minutes of holding the mouse after I catch back from drifting (didn’t feel myself in the dream state) is not obtained because I accidently right clicked outside the Lucid Scribe program.
