My hyperactive dream self

Postby tompine73 » 20 Apr 2014 13:21

My dream self always seems very busy. He (my dream self definitely seems like a separate entity to me) is always running around, playing football, having sex (occasionally) or surfing.

None of these seem particularly conducive to being reflective enough for him/me to see that I am dreaming.

Should I try to "induce" a dream where I am sat calmly reading a newspaper, looking at my watch, generally looking around and checking my hands?

I think you can realize you're dreaming in virtually any situation, as long as in your real life you can incorporate your reality checks into all of your activities, even your more busier activities.

Ah yes, but this is where it gets a bit tricky. In real life I'm in a wheelchair and not particularly active (unlike the basketball playing type wheelchair users etc).

Fortunately (?) almost all of my dreams are doing the pre-accident activities I mentioned above. I very rarely dream about being in my wheelchair and if so it's often a bit odd like I'm pushing my wheelchair around.
