Dictionary - explanations of Acronyms like LD RC etc

ASP - awake sleep paralysis

LL - Lucid Living: the state of mind produced when you practice for Lucid Dreams in the waking world. The feeling that should be produced when you practice any of several exercises in the waking world, including the RC (reality check).

not sure about the ULD - unaware lucid dream; it feels like a contradiction in terms. There is a phenomenon called Daydreaming Asleep, where the dreamer has control of the dream, but is not actually aware that he is asleep (similar to day dreaming awake)

FLD - false lucid dream. What a concept, I love it! But since you are lucid, calling it false feels well, false. How about Lucid Dream Once Removed?

WBTB? I could use more of a detailed definition of this one.

DILD? Isn’t this a Lucid Dream?

A dream containing Orlando Bloom (Legolas from Lord of the Rings) would be:

Cool Orlando Dream.


Hehe have a good day.

i have another one;
IMLD=IN-MY-LUCID-DREAM… :cool: :smile:

When you wake in the middle of the night for no reason, I call it a Sudden Random Awakening.

Sudden Random Awakening - SRA.

Don’t know if it’s relevent. :happy:

Love you all! :wink:

EDIT: Had to update my url again, the old one still works! :smile:

i noticed the acronym for Reality Check Initiated LD is RCID.

For me it makes more sense when the acronym is RCILD - so it fits in with all the other -ILD’s :wink:

anyway, the two both have an acronym bubble assigned :grin:

oops. :eh:
:confused: I think it was suppose to be RCILD but my brain must have wanted a 4 letter word.

Some new acronym with the time:

DLTR = Dream Longer Than Reality

DRD - Dream Recording Device - possible device to come, records our dreams to a continual and stable video.

Soon it will be hard for evrey Lucid enthusist to communicate with people who are not in to LD,
becuse they will be talking in LD. (Lucid language :wink: )

I propose that some of the different dream techniques (ILDs) gain an extra type with the prefix “DIF” for “dream initiated false” where “dream” is assumed to mean EITHER NLD or LD. The two I find most pertinent are:

DIFWILD Dream initiated false wake initiated lucid dream
DIFMILD Dream initiated false mnemonic initiated lucid dream

These two examples are from situations discussed recently (“Have you ever had a WILD in a NLD or a LD?”). Because these are technically not true WILDs, they should gain a prefix to point out that it is the same technique but done in dream.

Originally when this occured to me I called DIFWILD a DIWILD, but now I add the F because I feel it is important.

There are already enough acronyms but I think that this would be helpful if this topic (DIFWILD) is to be discussed in any greater detail.

EDIT: Whoops! I am sorry… I missed FLD which sums up all of the DIF*ILDs I was thinking of… Nevermind!

Have I gone blind or did we miss a really big one.

DS = Dream Sign

I’ve just been talking about them and came here for a possible definition and Nada.

Yup, we all looked right over that one.

I’ve also added LL(Lucid Living), along with a few more definitions.

A couple ones that I think have been overlooked…
NLD - Non-Lucid Dream
RL or WL - real life or waking life - people often use these acronyms instead of saying IRL or IWL

Thanks for adding Lucic Living. It has been a life long dream of mine. :content:

There is a great discussion about LL going on and as a result I’ve come up with another anacronym:

LDD: Lucid Day Dreaming. Another exercise for practicing lucidity.:beer:

It’s pretty self-explanatory but I will talk about it more in the Lucid Living

LL has been added as a popup now too. :content:

and removed again because of the fact that when you use “i’ll” it changes it into the acronym too :grrr:

To whom it may concern… ULD Unaware Lucid Dreaming is real … I do it ever night … I have as of yet been unable to be come “awake” in my dreams yet I can control whatever I want … Hence I stopped having nightmares about 12 years ago because after 3 years of the same one I came to the realization that I could control what was happening and since then I havent had any such problems … The only thing is Im not thinking so I cant do what i really want to … I can only react to things Not initiate them

Today I have added:

AB= Astral Body
SG= Spirit Guide

I also cleaned up the original post a bit.
