Dreamsigns 2

Postby tompine73 » 25 Mar 2014 12:55

In my waking life I am rarely in a situation or seeing things that make me think "that's odd, I'll do a reality check". What's more, my dreams are rarely surreal and are normally very realistic with the only oddities being people from my past, the occasional celebrity or scene changes.

Because of this I'm wondering whether there will be enough in a dream to make me reality check.

However, I have got to the stage in my waking life where I spontaneously just think "do a reality check", which I then do (thoroughly).

So, how important are dream signs? Any thoughts or advice?

I've just reached that point with reality checks as well-it's a great feeling to know your prospective memory is just bringing it into your mind regularly right?? ;)

A lot of my dreams are fairly plausible as reality as well-I don't think I've ever actually used a dream sign to become lucid... although I've never really managed to find a satisfying one! if you're doing reality checks regularly as it is, then you'll probably end up doing one in a dream, whether there's a dream sign or not!

If you are reality checking already in your dreams or just becoming lucid, they wouldnt be all that important as that is why people do dream signs. I dont know the percentage of LD people who have used dream signs but many of us dont.

If want increased reality checking in dreams...another way of having a dream sign is just make a common thing which is regularly in your dreams as your dream sign.. eg my dream sign would be going to the loo as I dream that a lot (like you, I rarely dream weird stuff in dreams). I can do reality checks in daily life every time I go to the loo so I start to reality check in my dreams when I find myself doing that seeing that is common dream symbolism which happens for me anyway.

I dont really understand why some suggest to have a weird dream sign.. for many just practicing observance in daily life and looking around regularly and asking oneself.. "is there anything weird here" checking any clocks in the room you are in, your phone etc etc is maybe even better as that habit of checking for any weirdness then manifests in dreams.. which can boost awareness and cause one to become lucid. If one is just focused on one werid dream sign only.. a person can be missing other dream weirdness due to just that one focus. Of cause if a person has one weirdness which appears A LOT in dreams, focus on one thing could then be quite helpful.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

Thanks, and hopefully, although at the moment my dreaming self is blissfully unaware that there is anything unusual going on when he should be doing more reality checking! :roll:

And regarding prospective memory, I'm having some fun doing Stephen LaBerge's prospective memory exercise described in his book "Exploring the world of lucid dreaming"; it's a bit trickier than I thought it would be

That exercise is surprisingly difficult right!? I always seem to completely forget about all the targets after a few hours and then remember in the evening after I've seen them all ;)

It is! I was quite proud of myself, I had mental picture of a leek next to my wallet on a car dashboard (above the radio). This was so that I could remember to reality check when I: saw a vegetable, saw a red car, turned on the radio or TV and used money. I then promptly forgot about all of them apart from the vegetable! :x

Haha! i'll have to try the mental leek picture! XD I've been really bad remembering to RC the past week cause I've been so busy-the prospective memory I'd slowly been building up went out of the window and I'm back at square 1 again :/
