I have a lot of what I call 'not my perspective' dreams in which I have no dream body - it feels like watching a movie, or maybe like being literally inside a movie. It's not like I'm inside someone else's body - I am a bodyless observer. This dreams do not bother me, but recently I analysed my dream journal to improve my reality checks, and I figured out how to use most of the reoccuring themes, but I have no idea what to do with these dreams. I've never had a lucid dream that would start with a 'not my perspective' dream, and I feel like I'm missing an opportunity here, cause they make up almost a third of my dreams.
Does anyone have the same type of dreams, and can someone advise me on this? Is there anything I can do to use these dreams to trigger lucidity? It seems to be quite a challenge, cause being a bodyless observer is not something that ever happens in waking life. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

I find if I'm emotionally involved in what is happening it is easier to push for control, where if I am watching like it's a movie I don't have a vested interest and don't have a reason to become involved. Eh, it's worth the try.

I noticed I have a lot of them when I started on my dream journal, and I've never had such experience while being lucid - all my sudden 'it's a dream!' realizations come from dreams where I am myself. The emphaty thing is a good idea, though I've never felt anything towards dream characters I see in those dreams. And in fact I kind of understand where it comes from - sometimes I watch movies on my laptop with switched off light so everything I see and hear is the movie. I started paying attention to my body, particullary to my hands, and doing more reality checks during watching, but it doesn't help. Any ideas how to highten awarenes during such dreams? Because I am kind of attentive during normal dreams, I rarely miss really weird things, so I have at least one dild every week, but whatever happens in those 'bodyless' dreams, I don't ever notice. Maybe because I think any weird thing can happen in a movie
Its interesting you've never developed empathetic feelings toward dream characters. I have very often had strong emotional feelings toward a dream character or events that happened in a dream that bring a realization to me. Its not like I literally love my dcs but emotions could almost be described in some lds as stronger emotional feelings than real life offers. Idk though that's just an opinion

Whatever you weirdo. Like must sciences I think it's a melding of many disciplines. Probably organic chemistry, physics, micro biology, physiology, psychology and more than likely math.
