What happens if you look and see yourself (while being lucid of course) in a mirror? Does your mirror-image follow your moves just like in real life, or can this be a trigger to discover that you're dreaming?

Anything can happen. I've seen an image of myself once that didnt look like "me" IWL at all. Also, when you are lucid, you dont need a trigger that you're dreaming tounge2 ...

My mirror image is usually the same as me (though there is sometimes a differnce in the hair). The mirror image generally matches what I'm doing...

... but one time, I found that the feel of my hair and the look of it were different (different hair lines and stuff).
That felt weird wink5.

grin the mirror is a great way to get me lucid! When I look in a mirror, I see some strange things. Usually it's like if the mirror was not perfectly flat: when I move my hand or my face, the image distorts. Sometimes my face appears to be dead or paralysed, or with a nasty evil look. Once I saw that I had a white goblin head with horns and warts and aweful thing. When you look in a mirror, you may see a totally different person, or you hair died in a weird color. It may follow your movements, or it may have a mind of it's own. So pay attention when looking in the mirror.

Of course you don't
What I meant was that it could make you realize that you're dreaming and to become lucid - not while you're lucid of course. ^^

Just kidding ofcourse, but you wrote the question in such a way that it looks as though you asked that wink ...

Staring in mirrors should help you with morphing, or even cloning smile

Mirrors are great in dreams and have often made me lucid.
I look different in a dream mirror (more hair mainly!). One thing I have noticed sometimes which amuses me at the time is a kind of delay in the movement of my reflection. For instance if I make a face in a dream mirror it can take my reflection up to a second to respond with the same face. I guess this is down to my brain working overtime to duplicate the information, but it can be quite funny.

In lucid dreams, very funny things happen when I'm looking in a mirror. Sometimes, my reflect doesn't look like me, it's blond-haired, or it plays at making faces. Or I don't see a reflect, but something different happen in the mirror. Once, there was a gorilla into the mirror, and it tried to pass through the glass to enter my dream world. smile

I think its because you expect it. My reflection moves along pretty well I think, and dont underestimate the power of our minds smile.

When I look in the mirror in my dreams I can see different me's all the time. It could be a difference in my hair, mostly hair and my lips.

But when you're ld'ng.. You can do whatever. You should try jumping through it or pulling a Matrix.

Whenever I look in the mirror in a dream, my image always corresponds to me exactly. It hardly ever resembles myself in real life, but this is because in the dream I don't resemble myself in real life appearance-wise, so this is how the mirror reflects it. Either that, or I'm wearing outrageous punk outfits, etc. ^^

Last night I had some LD's so I set out to test this again, my image looked rather like myself IRL and corresponded exactly to my movements in the dream! ...

Xetrov: Yeah, I've tested that a couple of times. With the same results smile.

I guess it just comes down to how you expect your dream mirrors to behave.

Does anyone here know the actual logic of lucid dreaming? Like why can we jump throug a mirror, or why does our hand get distorted? I know it's a ll in our minds, but why does the mind allow us to not be able to turn off the light, for example?

It's always confused me, a little.
