So what I really want to know is how do you actually start to question things in dreams? And any other advice as to what to do would be lovely. Thank you
So, whenever I wake up, I always question the fact that my dream was in third person, but I thought nothing of it.
** (a picture of key)= "school", mom drawing pig-->goat
i was walking in "my school" (eventhough it's not), then i saw my mom was drawing a pig. i looked the other way and saw the picture of pig turned into a picture of goat. i woke up.
D/N: - not my school. unknown places
- my mom can't draw
- why would she draw in a place like that?
- the picture changed
note that the picture of key is meant for me to write the main keys of that dream, so you the chance of remembering my dream in detail is bigger since it's the first thing i write. and when i want to read my dream journal again, i can recall which dream is which fast without reading the whole thing.
D/N is dream note
after some routine of writing dream journal like this, you will eventually be more aware to unusual things. most of my LD is not because of reality check, but because i recognize dream signs and meditation. at the back of the book, i write the dream signs that appears the most, like
hehe well i hope that helps, it's my own way to write dream journal though. sorry if it's too long
Instead of just asking myself:
"Am I dreaming?"
I am asking myself specific questions like:
"Is this location normal?"
"Have I seen anyone today that I don't normally see?"
"Are other people behaving normally?"
"Can I see my hands clearly?"
I'm hoping it will help me! Maybe it will help you too.

The best way to learn to question things in dreams is to practice questioning them during waking time. The idea is to establish in your mind that you could be dreaming at any time. But of course you have to really believe it. At first, I thought that I believed I could be dreaming at any time, but realized later that deep down I was convinced I could tell when I was dreaming so never took it completely seriously. What I didn't have a full appreciation for was that dreams are incredibly real and pretty much impossible to tell from waking life. Even during my lucid dreams I am still doubting that they are dreams, even when I am sure. Having said that, there is still a certain amount of luck involved in becoming lucid. So keep trying and you'll hit it sooner or later.
