Where do you become lucid?
PostPosted: Thu 21 Nov, 2002  Reply with quote

Just out of curiosity, where do you usually find yourself when you get lucid in a dream? Somewhere familiar, or a strange place you have never been? I'm not talking about actual location (where you are sleeping) but rather your dreamscape.

This is interesting for me, because I almost never become lucid anywhere other than inside my house. Does location have any effect on your chance of becoming lucid?

Thanks for participating smile

I thought for a while that it might be much easier to become lucid in a place you have never been before, quite simply because you might wonder where you are, or how you got there. Strangly enough, this never seems to be the case for me.

I guess it might depend on what method you use to become lucid. If you are one of the people who can react to thing being out of place, or unusual events, then finding yourself in a strange alien place may cause you to become lucid. If instead you usually use dreamsigns, or reality checks when you see something familiar with real life, then you may find it more common to become lucid in a familiar environment.

Thanks for the responses guys smile

In familiar environments its easier to notice abnormalities... that's my take on it.

Mine usualy happen in false awakenings where I wake up in my bed and usualy either notice that my drawings on my wall are wrong or just have the feeling, "I'm dreaming." And then I usualy float out of the glass fire emergency door in my room out to the street and look for my dream friends. I do have them start in unknown places but not as often and usualy not as highly lucid.

Like Hypnodude, I seem to become lucid almost anywhere. I tend to just notice that things are out of place and this triggers lucidity. This happens in familiar and totally unknown landscapes.

I prefer to be lucid away from home, as my dreams seem to be so much more vivid and I somehow feel less constrained.

It would be interesting to see if the location of the dream is related to whether the dream was WILD or DILD. Would WILD tend to lead to waking up in a familiar environment?

I can go lucid anywhere
but:
It has happened to me some times that I were standing somewhere, went lucid, and in that instant was automatically teleported to my house.
So, I am around my house quite often in LDs, although I don´t always get lucid there

I can become lucid anywhere too...
But dark retreats are really fun! You get a lot of lucid dreams out of them.

Actually I've never gone lucid 'at home'. It wasn't until the day before yesterday that I had heard of lucid dreams, but I have them quite frequently already. I never know why I notice that it's a dream. For some reason I just do. I remember, cause I've sort of known all along, know what I mean?
