Dictionary - explanations of Acronyms like LD RC etc

If you’re dreaming, then I’m too because I just noticed it too :content:
Hehe sounds like a full blown SD to me :tongue:

[b][color=indigo]I’d like to suggest one…SC

Sub Conscious, cos I always type SC without thinking, and ppl always ask me wot it means

SC=Subconscious=•adj. of or concerning the part of the mind of which one is not fully aware but which influences one’s actions and feelings

there :content:

Also, I’d like to suggest SIM or SID for Successful Irvine Mission or Successful Irvine Dream. Definition? hehe ok…when PistGurl has succeeded with her mission of coupling repeatedly with Irvine

:grin: [/color][/b]

HH - hypnagogic hallucinations – vivid, often frightening, dream-like images and sounds experienced at REM sleep onset, usually accompanied by fear and anxiety; a characteristic feature of narcolepsy.

A description for NDE:

A so far unexplained phenomenon which occurs when people have nearly died. The person reports about travelling through a tunnel of light and meeting certain spiritual entities. This made some people believe a NDE shows a glimpse of the afterlife.


spam spam spam…sheesh

sorry, but you haven’t added SIM yet. Yoiu should get round to that![/b][/color]

Do you really expect it to happen frequently enough to merit an acronym? :content:

I’m just kidding. Seriously though, to be realistic, the acronyms should only represent common occurrences that apply to everyone. We can’t really have millions of shortcuts for every insignificant reason, or else half of the average post will have a dotted underline. :smile:

I do like your SC suggestion though. That one would be very handy.

Last night I had the Dictionary almost updated.
I left my computer for a moment, and came back to it crashed to a blue screen. :neutral: . . . . the amount of BBCode used in this dictionary is a bit much for me to try to tackle again today … :bored:
Sorry for the slow update, but I promise to get it soon.

It’s also time to remove a bunch of these replies since this thread is reaching 4 pages. (sorry pistgurl … :grin: don’t be pist :wink: )

can I add this one?

NWS=Newbie Wake-up Syndrom

Hey this is cool but You don’t want posts to start turning into this… .

Hello, I tried to have an LD last night where I WTS and starting seeing HI and HH and eventually felt SP. I was FO and I got into a WILD but I lost LN and then when I got it again it became a DILD so I did an RC and got L again. Soon I WU and my DR was decent so I went to my DJ and wrote it down.


But some of the “ilds” that people suggested are not really common…

This is cool :content:

IB for inorganic beings
AP for assemblage point

MWBTB - Multiple WBTB
RWBTB - Repeted WBTB

When you set the alarm (or something else) to wake you up over and over again until you can’t go back to sleep anymore.

Sleep 4½-6 hours, |: wake up, write down your deams, go back to sleep for 1-1½ hour
:l repeat from |:

LA or Lucid Awakening - happens when your ND fades and you realize you’re dreaming while waking up.

I added that one to this thread almost a year ago… It’s probably more likely to get an acronym now that people have started using it on the forum :smile:

LOL, I didn’t notice it :smile: Yes, the acronym has been used quite a few times so it may get “official status” now :happy:

Added SC, LA and the description of HH

May I suggest Post Lucid Dream Account dream? (I don’t know how to put it, I mean a dream after a LD in which the person is behaving on the basis that he just had a LD, like telling someone about the LD) It always happen to me after a LD that I dream that I’m with somebody and telling him about the LD I just had. I’m sorry if there’s already a name for it, I didn’t find anything. And if someone has a better name for it than it’s ok.

I would say it’s a (Post-(Lucid Dream)), that is a P-LD or a PLD. :smile:

(The brackets show you how the words are grouped, a little like showing the difference between (green (pea soup)) and ((green pea) soup). But maybe I’m just a geek to use them here. :tongue:)

thanks for clarifying that, r3m0t :content:

look at this: https://www.lucidity.com/vanEeden.html

I don’t agree with the definition of Dream Diary and Dream Journal. It’s not only a journal for lucid dreams, but for all sorts of dreams.

When you have to give a beginner the advice to keep a DJ in order to make LD’s, it’s possible that he won’t understand how to keep a journal of his lucid dreams when he hasn’t. :tongue:

I dunno if it’s been suggested yet, but about DR for dream recall?
