I'm reading a book on Tibetan Buddhist Dream Yoga which instead says you should tell yourself regularly during the day that "you are dreaming" on the basis that you will end up doing it in a dream and thus become lucid.
two similar but in fact opposite methods. I've been doing the regular "Reality check" method but am now questioning it.
Comments on the two would be welcome. Also experiences with both. I'm looking to figure would which is really likely to be the most effective.
The fact is that reality is a dream. This dream ends when we die. Keep this in mind, keep in mind the idea that you are ALWAYS dreaming and always in a unique moment in which you have the power to control your actions, and you will begin to carry that attitude into your dreams. This heightened awareness will start to bring you into situations where you question whether you're dreaming, especially if you keep track of dream signs. Doing reality checks will teach you to know when you're in the shorter, REM sleep dreams and not this collective dream we all share. The "I am dreaming" dream yoga method is to teach you to be aware and energized; the "am I dreaming" method is to teach you to be curious, to expand the limits of your knowledge. These overlap, of course. I highly highly recommend doing both as much as you possibly can.
