Nice read, although it is most definitely "easier said then done." I guess this also goes along the lines of "lucid living." RCs are almost useless if all you are doing is a physical act.

A worldwide lucid dreaming session... good thing the lucid world doesn't use a server. overspannen Great project.er, interview, it was insightful to me. It even renewed my hopes of getting a lucid dream by talking to myself...wait, I do that already. What was that about schizophrenia? help! eh sly kiekeboe
I hope that came out right.



Current LD goal(s): Such control, I can bridge to Astral Projection!

Best wishes on having your first lucid dream!

I remember my first lucid dream, and it blew my mind. I used a relatively simple technique ( my version of the Castaneda method ) and had a lucid dream within three days. You can read about that technique at http://dreaminglucid.com/fivetechniques.html


Hy Robert. I like this Castaneda method. I'll try it, because my first LD was induced by MILD and DILD method and RC with hands. So i figured I'm dreaming when i looked at my hands... So this method involves hands and this is what i need, thank you...

interesting article Robert, it is funny to see that I was using a method that I thought was my own but that has already a scientist name on it haha (look at hands).

This confirms to me the fact that knowledge and discovery are shared by each of us, the only difference is that some day someone decides to put his name on it.

good luck to everyone for their next lucid dream !



Current LD goal(s): Fight in a dream ! Improve a skill (drawing/storytelling)

Thanks for sharing this! This technique sort of is like lucid living, and probably requires quite a bit of effort to fall into the habit of it, but I'll definitely try! Thanks!

This is great! I've had trouble with the whole reality checks thing, because it just doesn't work for me. And dreams seem to be so highly personal, I figured there is probably a reason why. So the main thing involved seems to be what motivates us most to think critically about our experiences.

I notice more and more that I am a background storyteller and various characters in my dreams at the same time, so I should probably concentrate more on that. Maybe ask myself questions about story-writing or film making or something (Not that this fits well into real life, but it would be helpful in instances where I am revising a dream as I experience, to make the story tighter.)

Impressive article, thank you very much.

Although difficult to change your mindset, this is the ultimate solution to becoming lucid. I think deffo the 'What was I just doing' type question is easier than just constantly wondering if this is a dream, since your previous actions will always change (especially if you are having a busy day). Whereas constantly doing RC's to check if it's reality can become labourious and too repetitive.



Current LD goal(s): Short term goal: Practise WILD. Long term goal: Achieve lucidity at will.

Imagine an entire society and culture persistently asking a Critical Question. Maybe over time, lucid dreaming will lead to a worldwide lucid mindset,

Great article! My most recent dream is a result of simply questioning my reality, rather than focusing on the reality check. This has reminded me, so thanks!

Maybe the website needs to focus more on lucid living rather than reality checks? When I questioned my reality in my dream, I remembered to do a reality check like I would in reality anyway.

I was just thinking, how often should you ask yourself the "critical question" for it to be effective, like every half hour or something like that ?

You need to keep your mind LUCID, that state you are aware about the answers of the questions.

It depends on each person, some people can stay lucid by asking it each 20 minutes, others need much more questions, while others are very used to it that they just keep it mostly naturally.

It's important to learn how is to be in lucid mindstate to achieve that.

I think that is up to you, each individual is different. I think I'm asking myself about once every 15 to 30 minutes. And it still hasn't made it into my dreams. I think it is important to really, really question it, and look around you to really check. To strongly feel it in you when you ask. Emotions are easier to bring into a dream .

imj, i do agree with you that if you keep question reality you'll go nuts.

But to ask yourself what you just did, that can't be too bad ?(even if your aim is to question your surroundings)
