Failed recognizing dream signs

Postby JoaquínM » 13 Jan 2017 15:47

Last night I failed sooo bad recognizing dream signs. They were everywhere, they had different forms but it felt so normal to me in the dream.
After writing it I looked for drean signs and I found this:
-There was no city at all, just the building I live in
-The exchange student that was staying in my house for a few months in 2015 was still here
-I said I played american football and I don't even know the rules (It's a really unknown sport in my country)
-The night turned into day in a few seconds
-Many people from my school I don't even know their names and I haven't see them outside school were in this dream

I guess I shouldn't worry about it, I'm just a beginner in this whole thing. But it's kind of disappointing since dream signs were everywhere. :lol:
A few random quotes from my dreams:
You'll always have something to learn
Look! They're running! They're running!

Same thing happens to me, it is really frustrating to wake up and write your dreams to realize there were a lot of things that would have induced a lucid dream. Don't give up and keep practicing, it will all be worth it when you are able to have a full lucid dream. P.S I am also a beginner.

This happens to me, some dreams have all my main dream signs in (like playing football with Aliens in my secondary school), and I think FFS how could I not tell that was a dream. I read that the part of your brain involved with logic and reasoning (frontal cortex, I think) is inactive during dreams, so your ability to reason that it is a dream is reduced. I once implanted a dream sign on purpose, I spent all day visualising lions hunting people and following me around, that night I dreampt of lions, did I realise I was dreaming? No.

This happens all the time to me as well.
