Character Assisted Lucid Dreaming - CALD Part III

^^~ Very cool! It’s all very intricate… I love it-- Saichania has made such a wonderful lifeform, I really like the decription of it-- you’re very good!
But the others shouldn’t be jealous D: I’m sure their additions were just fine!


:3 Good job Sai! You’ve done well…

And Mecha, you’ve made so much progress~ I’m so proud XD~

It sounds like the new Mecha charry will be interesting…

Good job!


Lol Im jealous in a good way. Seriously Mecha your mindworld seems really awesome!

I can definitely agree! Many people who post here make spectacular things… It’s amazing!
But I’m sure you’ll fix your castle problem soon enough ^^~

Thanks very much! I’m not very set on Serp’s colourations-- though he has alot of earthy reds when I imagine him ^^~ Beiges and reds and browns…
He is pretty much just a cute snake right now XD
Occasionally sits up and stares-- or sleeps… Or slides around, or stares into space XD
He’s actually quite a bit like Fang-- one of my other lil pets… Similar colourations, and drawing-cycle… their personalities are becoming similar too!

Sounds good Talon. He must be very adorable :content:

He is!
Thanks for all the encouragement-- ^^~ You make me really happy…

He’s just… curled up and watching the screen click around XD It’s cute-- He just stares and stares, so innocent… :stuck_out_tongue:

Just noticed Serpentus. He’s really cool looking and sounds rather cute!

Haha ^^~ Thanks very much–
:stuck_out_tongue: I think, when I stop attempting FILD/HILD I’ll want to try and use him for CALD,
So far though-- he’s just been a really cute snake XD


Havent been trying CALD of late though I have been using my characters help when attempting WILD.
Alice is gone… :cry:
I woke up this morning and saw Sage sitting on my bed and I asked where Alice was. He told me she was gone.
I got such a shock because I didnt expect her to leave that soon and without saying goodbye. I kinda just sat there not really believing it but after I mind searched i realised she was nowhere to be found. I never thought it would really happen but I guess I was wrong. My biggest regret is we didnt get to say good bye but then maybe it was easier not to :sigh:
Its weird theres like this empty space inside of me.

On another note though I have been seeing a black panther lately who came to me in dream months ago and eased some type of fear in my dream by speaking to me. Tonight me and Sage are going to use our combined energy to draw her to Arveya. The castle problem was fixed and i can just feel that more mind characters shall emerge in my created world. Yet i dont know how Arveya could ever be the same without Alice. But I know that with her twin sister she will find complete happiness.

Thats all for now guys.

Astraea: My condolences on Alice’s departure, I know what you mean by an empty spot inside you. :sad:

A while ago all my MC’s just disappeared for a day and a half. I couldn’t feel them at all, and after the first day I started to get worried that they might be gone permanently. Luckily they’re all back now, but none of us knows just what happened, or if it might happen again in the future. :help:

Awww… I feel your pain-- It’s admirable you’re handling it so well ^^.
I’m glad you’re starting to move on-- you seem to have quite the plan running! You can continue-- and I can see you obviously have a good base…Congrajulations on fixing the castle problem-- And obviously, we’d love updates about any new aditions to the gang ^^~ :smiley:

I see a good future for you! :smiley: You’re handling well-- you and Sage will get far :3~
Good luck, but you won’t seem to need it~ :3


Ahh, we all go through little periods of that. A friend of mine had a serious one for a few weeks-- and because of her very integrated lifestyle with their existance, it was definately traumatizing.
Ah well-- for me, having a grip on a certain level of control over just base things ( just how violent is too violent, never allowing any harm to come to me or others from my character’s presences, and making sure I always have the ability to stop my characters O-o;) at least lets me keep a good grip on their existances…
Fading has happened to one character of mine-- Kazurai, he dissapeared for awhile, but came back. Some characters, for me, are more defined and solid than others…

Ah well–
The important thing is they’re there in the end when we want them to be. :3~


Oh. Another character came to me Tuesday. Not from a dream, though. She just… came. And, that’s usually how my most memorable characters occur. I’m just a little too embarassed right now to talk about her, though.

I will… sometime, I guess.

Haha XD I can’t imagine what would make to too embarassed to talk about a character-- but I’m glad that she spontaneously came to you…!~
I can’t wait to hear about her ^^~

G’night guys!~

Happy lucids…

Can’t imagine? Then surprised you will be when I tell you about her. I will say that “the answer” is closer than you would think. Practically right in front of you, even.

Maybe closer.

As for progress on my more developed characters… I’m getting this sense of a quasischizo feeling. I’m not sure if it’s necessarily a good or bad thing - it doesn’t really bother me, it’s just different. Mostly it’s Vice who is the “talkative” one…

It’s funny… DCs seem less developed in personality than consciously “created” characters. In most cases, at least.

Talon- thank you for your kind words. I am trying to move on but its hard. :sadyes:
So much has happened in just 2 days. Seriously so much my brain is hurting.
First of all I have 3 new characters (I think my subconcious is throwing me characters to ease the loss of Alice.)
so I will introduce them. First theres Carma the black panther I talked about last time. Shes calmer than I expected and sort of just follows me around Arveya pretty scilently though we can talk through minds.
Then came a brother and sister. I was sitting on my bus home 2 nights ago and they walked on sat in front off me and we chatted.
Theres Felicia Oswald who is 15 loud, cheerful , and very bossy
I also have Emanuel Oswald her older brother who is 17 shy quiet and sweet. Him and Felicia look so alike. Plus they are both very good at aiding me in LDs I had like a 10 second one last night :content:
Plus Arveya is coming along nicely.
Thats all for now (sorry for the long post)

I don’t understand CALD what so ever. You people with “characters” act like they are actually alive! Can someone explain this “CALD” in simple terms?

I merged this with the CALD topic. Also, the pathways to lucidity forum is the right place to post questions about techniwues. :cool:

CALD (character assisted lucid dreaming) is a LD technique that Talon created :yes:
You use one or more DCs or consciously created characters to help you LD.
Im sure Talon could explain it better…

Wow O-o;
Perhaps I’m not looking closely enough? Is she your darkside, or something-- or…Uhmmm ~o-o~ Or…Maybe…
Agh, My theory is a bit… I think I’m going to stop thinking about that now.

:stuck_out_tongue: DCs do tend to have less percieved personality-- because in consciousness, we would focus on that aspect alot more…
And as for the quasi-schizo feeling, just remember to have very -very- clear, and strict outlines, and I’m sure you’ll be fine :stuck_out_tongue: I know you have quite a bit of control!
I have very strict rules when it comes to my characters, I could never let them cross that line and blur my sense of reality-- it’s way too dangerous…
:smiley: But thankfully, by beliefs and philosyphys co-incide very well with my system of reality, so it works fine ^^~

I look forward to clarification as to who this character is :P~ My guess is a bit presumptuous, so I’d rather not voice it ^^~

:3 That’s not a long post at all, not to worry!
I am happy to hear of these new characters, but still sad to know of your stress-- I know exactly what you mean… It must be very much of a flood.
They sound very nice, and I hope everything settles down soon!
It seems as though Arveya will be a very detailed, nice place… :3 I hope you describe it to us someday! :smiley:

Hoping for your peace of mind–

haha, simple–but yes :3 I’ll try my hand at it-- XD But you explained it well :3 Thank you Astraea…
