Rapid Eye Movement Dream

Six blinks can be seen before the audio track played, but I couldn’t contain myself and woke up. The latest version of Lucid Scribe now shows which track was played and makes navigating to the detected REM periods easier.

REM Lucid Dream
I became lucid naturally, the old-fashioned way. So when the track played the euphoria and confidence doubled. But I flew too high too fast and the dream started fading very quickly.

Three blinks can be seen before the anthem, then some strained eye movements followed by another four blinks.

REM during a Dream.
The track played within a minute of the onset of REM – after 8 blinks, and the dream lasted for almost 3 minutes, although the effect of the anthem is not noticeable on the eye movements.

Alternating Rapid Eye Movements
The nine peaks in the minute above are part of seven phases of REM that occured during a ten minute window where the blinking started and stopped roughly every thirty to sixty seconds. The track had played twenty minutes earlier, but I have no memory of it.

REM Sleep with Mugwort
The track interrupted the rapid eye movements after which the dream continued for another two minutes, although I have no memory of it.

Preparation: boiled two tablespoons of Mugwort in two cups of water for 10 minutes until half a cup was left.

REM Sleep Interrupted
The track woke me up and ended the dream that it detected rather abruptly as can be seen after the eight blinks above. I did, however, manage to remain completely still and awake for the next 10 minutes until the hallucinations started again.

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.

Rapid Eye Movement Graph
There were three brief occurances of REM onset that all ended abruptly. The track played a minute into the fourth and induced lucidity in the dream that ended naturally after 10 minutes.

2012-01-05 – FIELD Day 2

Mouse Sleep Detection
Day 2 of attempting the FIELD method. I slept pretty late last night (aroudn 2:30 ish AM), but I still aimed to get 4-5 hours of sleep though. I wasn’t using the Lucid Scribe program as yet, it took a while for me to type up my Dream Journal Entry because I recalled a decent amount of dreams.

I prepared to set up the mouse plugin at around 9:35 AM, along with my Blackberry Curve taped on my right wrist too. But then I got annoyed by the constant vibrating sound my Blackberry Curve made when I used the vibration app. So I quickly turned it off and still held on to the mouse and went to sleep quicker.

I recall one dream practicing the FIELD method, which is pretty good since I stayed up over 90 minutes after waking up after 4-5 hours of prior sleep.
