Third Person Dreaming

Postby Dream Scout » 03 Apr 2015 03:42

I knew that I dream in third person before I knew about lucid dreaming and it hasn't been a problem until now. When I talk about what I see in a dream I often refer to myself as a cam. When I dream I see it as a movie. And I'm rarely in the "movie" if it isn't a nightmare. When I actually exist inside of a dream I see myself in third person 99% of the time. The problem is that I'm afraid the reality checks won't work. If I never see things in first person perspective how can I see if something seems weird? Should I care about this or not? Maybe train my cam to see weird situations? I'd be happy to get any kind of response.

Sorry if my English is bad, I'm from Sweden.

This is happening to me all the time. Usually when I see dreams I see them as a very fast movie and not in the first person perspective. I am new to the concept of lucid dreaming and I wanted to know how will a do a reality check if I do not see my dreams in the first person perspective ? Somebody please help. :(

Can somebody please share their thoughts? In my dreams I mostly seem to be an observer. I'm desperate. I don't want to waste several days doing something that isn't going to help me. Lucid dreaming is the goal of my life. I NEED quick responds that can help me.

My friend had similarly striking dreams in third individual in the recent past. The latest one he can recollect in third individual, he was another person completely. It's kinda like he assumed the part of a Prince. He recall being into a bad situation. For reasons unknown it was a ton like Aladdin.

As I said in my first post, I am often not in my dreams either. It's always third person like if I am watching a movie, and movies doesn't always follow one person. So there's nothing wrong with dreaming that you are a completely different person.

It is possible to be dreaming one is outside of ones dream. If you are an aware observer, you could try entering into whatever you are watching eg think about the movie screen or images getting closer and closer to you... hopefully you will get to a point where they merge with you so you find yourself within whatever you are watching.

If you aren't an aware/lucid observer. You'd need to do something like practice all day awareness till you start having lucid awareness in the observer state to be able to try to act upon it.
..................

The observer state is also a state that many yogis etc do, to be more outside of the dream state and watch the stuff the subconsciousness is producing rather then being dragged into it and getting involved. It is possible to have all night awareness this way. This is done via more of a type of meditation sleep kind of state.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

I'm proud. I finally did it. Last night I managed to ( No, not lucid dream, but) dream in first person! I trained myself into it. I have no memory of dreaming in first person since years ago! Hope that I will do it tonight also.

After many dreams in first person I'm going to tell you how I trained myself into first person dreaming from third person dreaming.

Almost like an RC, I looked down at my nose several times a day. When I saw my nose I knew a was in a body. I couldn't tell if I was dreaming or not but I know that my nose was there.

After doing that I got good results after 1-2 days. I dreamed in first person. The reason why this work, I think, is that when I live through the day I don't see my nose at all. I focus on everything else. If I see the nose, my dream me will too.
