I'd love to know how I seemingly randomly realize from time to time that I'm dreaming. It makes no sense to me, but then I've never really asked or searched for an answer.
I think I'll have to ask that the next time I find myself projecting.

- The significance you place on your dreams - if you are dismissive of dreams and think they are meaningless then you won't make much effort to remember them in the morning, consciously or subconsciously, and your experience of your dream life will be sparse.
- If you are a light sleeper - you will wake up more times in the night, and more often during or after REM sleep, making it much easier to recall your dreams. Deep sleepers may only remember the last dream on waking, and have no memory of the many dreams throughout the night.
- If you "live lucidly" by nature - this describes how naturally attuned you are to your environment, how mindful and observant you are of your current reality, so it's easier to spot when something is amiss - ie in dreams. This can be developed through frequent meditation.
- If you're a day dreamer - you're more accustomed to switching between an externally driven world to an internally driven creation of your mind. I find it particularly helpful in dream programming as I drift off to sleep, as well as the MILD and WILD induction methods.
I have considered these factors and yet still, I am beginning to feel that something is holding me back... none the less, I continue my weekly meditations, my dream journal entries, my pursuit of lucidity and my research if lucid dreaming!

Yes typically the word fluid is used to explain Parkour. What do you mean by "perform in a similar mind space"? When I daydream, its usually about Parkour. I daydream of the things I need to perfect, things I want to learn, and fears that I want to overcome. Its basically a daydream of how I want to perform, but can't yet. This is quite beneficial, and if I did this in a lucid dream, it would be even better. Thats one of my goals for lucid dreaming. Skill attainment, or rather instead of skills, confidence. Training my mind to ignore irrational fear.

Just, meditate or listen to some calming music like time by hans zimmer. Focus on nothing, if you cant, focus on the music. Soon an image will pop into your mind. Focus on it and enduce it!
