- You need to improve your dream memory by writing down every morning in your dream journal.
- The dream journal is the key to lucid dreaming, no matter which method you use. As you know, 10 minutes after you've woken up, half of your adventure will be gone, because your dream memory will be replaced by your normal daily one. If you write down everything you remember as soon as you've opened your eyes, you'll be using dream memory. Gradually these two types of memory will unite.
- Pick a larger notebook and make sure you can have access to it whenever you wake up. Sometimes when I'm too sleepy and insufficient, I just list some keywords on random pieces of paper woth eyes closed. Well, it's not always readable but it's better than nothing and it's still a bridge between the dream and daily memory. You can check the words later and try to remember more as you write it in the journal.
- Don't get up immediately after waking up. Relax and don't change your position. Go through your dream, forwards and backwards, memorize it well when you still can.
- LOOK FOR DREAM SIGNS! All of us have a couple of repeating patterns and objects, or even colours and numbers. For example, I often dream about airplanes, stairs, icy stuff and situations in which I'm running away from something. These signs are completely random, but tracking them is essential part of learning to lucid dream. You'll see why in the 2nd point.
- A reality check is something you do to see if you're dreaming or not. Do it as often as you can. Thus, it will become a habit and habits are also part of dreams. Do it before bed time, after getting up, before/after meals and everytime you feel something is not right. The most important moment you have to do it is when you encounter a dream sign.
- There are a lot of different types of reality check that work everytime. Here are some:
- Lucid dreams appear when the brain has rested enough. That's why they happen most often when you fall asleep in the morning
When I was younger, my imagination was the only thing that held my attention..i would get so wrapped up in my own world an just dream..i could ecscape to any place, any time, become any person…day dreaming was my way out..i could do anything…as I got older, life got the best of me and I became more a realist..i had to worry about bills, money, work, school, every day stress of life..dreaming became something I could do only at night when I was asleep and yet I never rememberd any of my dreams..i want to dream again and this time create from my dreams..i don’t want to just settle on dreaming and let my life pass away..i want to make my dreams a reality. 4 weeks ago
One night I was just having a gals night out with my friends and we slept outside the last part of my dream I fully remember was Twilight Sparkle(from my little pony) as an alicorn came up to me and said i was dreaming and then it started raining in my dream and in reality it really was. The strange par is that Twilight Sparkle wasn’t even an alicorn back then she was a unicorn and the show didn’t even talk about her bieng an alicorn yet. 1 month ago
Now It’s bittersweet. I sometimes get trapped in my lucid dreams! Where I’m just searching for a switch to wake me up. Oddly enough, it only happens when I let go and accept the dream state as my current reality. I’m usually afraid that I will be stuck in the dream forever, and the waking world will become some distant alternate reality that I will have to forget about or philosophize about (like heaven/hell, or just other realms in genera.0 Usually when I “succumb” is when I feel myself drifting off again and find myself waking up in my room. That happened for a while until I trained myself to forget my dreams, undoing all the training to remember!
But there have been lucid dreams I’ve thoroughly enjoyed! Where I’d walk up to a dream person and start asking them questions! I’d think, “okay, you are a part of me! tell me something I don’t know. help me deal with this: why can’t I get over problem X. what haven’t I learned yet!” It makes dreaming kind of fun! I get to be my own guru.
Good luck in your dreamy endeavors! The subconscious is a beautiful thing that I think far too many people are afraid of. 1 month ago
Only once noticed I was dreaming, years ago. I didn’t wake up from it, so I had some fun wandering through dreamland knowing that it wasn’t real.
Would love to dream lucidly more often, but after reading a little about it, I see you usually have to put quite some effort into it.
Not an urgent goal, but I will at least try to remember it before I go to sleep every night. 1 month ago
