trouble recognising being in a dream

Postby JonSnowLD » 16 Jan 2014 21:50

I was in a dream last night and I was watching fireworks, they were pretty bad fireworks cause I could hardly see them and I remember specifically thinking 'these fireworks would looks so much cooler if I was in an LD'. When I woke up I realised I'd been thinking about lucid dreams but hadn't cottoned onto the fact I was in one which is sooooo frustrating!
Does anyone have any advice on how to use these kind of thoughts in dreams as a gateway to lucidity? thanks!

Annoying isn't it!

I'd say that the best solution would be to do an RC every time you even think about lucidity. That way you should be able to utilise those frustrating moments.

A thing you can do is take advantage of that "mistake". Think about the fireworks you saw in the dream, have the intention of see it again. With luck, you'll have a dream with the same fireworks and that will trigger lucidity in you.
I've tried this and it worked for me. There's some "abnormalities" that i recognize as a dream sign and now i don't let it run away .

Yeah it is really annoying XD ok, that makes sense-i'll start linking fireworks/thinking about lucidity with reality checks
