Haha, this explains so much from when I was a kid. I had tons of nightmares and I always questioned reality, "Am I dreaming? Is this real?". I had lucid dreams several times a night because of it.

Funny how I'm also a norwegian. Hahaha.

I ask myself "Is anything out place or missing here? Is anything unusual happening?" at work, being a lifeguard. Hopefully I can carry this over to the rest of my day :D

That could work. Just make sure you don't get too lazy, and even if you think you remember doing it just a few minutes ago, remember anything could just be a false memory wink5

Very interesting article you wrote there. While I find it kind of intimidating to have more than one lucid dream per night (doesn't that get exhausting after a while?) living 'lucid' might be a good idea, because I asked myself the same question as Christophe there:

Christophe wrote:
Quote:
Imagine an entire society and culture persistently asking a Critical Question. Maybe over time, lucid dreaming will lead to a worldwide lucid mindset,
I wonder how far that would affect our daily life and society itself.

I can just refer to my experiences after meditating, I often felt really lucid and aware of my surroundings. And while I'm usually a little bit of a choleric person, during that time it was really hard to get me angry - which I guess happened because of the higher awareness of myself and my surroundings.

It really is just a speculation, but I guess it would decrease violence in all forms drastically. But then again, I may be thinking that just because I'm a natural pacifist.

I don't think it necessarily has to be lucid dreaming to achieve this worldwide lucid mindset, it'd probably already help if people meditated more. grin
Though I'd definitely appreciate more people coming to this forum.. bier

Anyway, I guess this is the way to go for me, as I wish to have many lucid dreams and I also wish to be a better person IRL. Combining these two into one thing.. awesome!

I just got done reading your article on attaining a lucid mindset and I must say that your article was very well written and very informative. I am definitely going to try and start asking myself a "critical question" everyday during the day and hope to see results in a increase in my lucid dreams. I found this article very interesting and the examples that you used fit the article very well. I like how there are people out there who find it weird that all people don't have lucid dreams every night! Your point about people having to fend off nightmares and how that caused them to have a more lucid mindset made a lot of sense. Great article overall! Thanks for writing it!

When using the 'What was I just doing' approach, say every hour in the normal day;

do you I say it aloud?

do I actually think back at what I was just doing?

could you please answer those 2 questions smile

thanks, corbin.

You don't have to say it aloud, you can just say it in yourself but if you feel that you need to say it aloud then do.

Yes, try to remember what you were doing last hour... and in detail!

Corbin, the main thing you've got to understand is that it's not the question per se, it's the mind set. You've got to make sure to keep questioning things, always have a little bit of doubt. You can never be 100% sure you're awake and there's always a chance you're dreaming. This is key to LL.

I have been trying to keep a consistent lucid mindset for the past couple of years, yet I have yet to achieve more than 2 lucid dreams per months. I am constantly questioning my reality. I often think 'how did I get here?' or 'what was I just doing?' yet I still have trouble inducing frequent lucid dreams.
So what am I doing wrong?

Wow! Instead of doing this lucid dreaming thing as a causual hobby including writing in a DJ and hope I'll ask myself if I'm dreaming at the right time, I'm going to make this a lifestyle! I'll most likely update you all on how it's been going in about a month from now!
