May be lucid living isn't necessary but,

As Wagonner said, a great lucid dreamer and author in an article:
The secret about frequent lucid dreamer, he asked a lot of them how do they do it.
Because it was disturbing for him.
These people just get lucid without any RC's or inducing techniques. So WHY?

Well he figured out that these people got in the habit of asking themselves about their situation.
Like a girl who since she was a child asked herself "What was i doing", this can work with "am i safe here" or anything wich make you consider your situation.
So you can see how effective it can be to ask you during the day "am I dreaming"

And as another author said :
Even when you get in the habit of doing RC's, you think about doing it only when you have some second to think. I found it really true.
So it is important to remember to take some times during the day to RC and to be more aware in your waking life.

Exactly when i didn't know what lucid dreaming was, i was already checking my situation like: Uhm what am i doing? or, something very (stratagycal no idea how you spell this strategy?) like uhm if he entered the building from that side people could see him. And i was doing this in my dreams aswell this caused me to be lucid in the past, not a clear state of lucidty but still. It really brings you to yourself!

Yeah, I do this as much as I can. One problem, though, is remembering to stay aware while playing video games or simply browsing the internet. A lot of my dreams are of video games or something on a screen and I often find that I don't have a body and aren't aware at all during them. Also, I'm considerably less sensitive to dreamsigns because I just think anything can happen in a video game.

Does anyone have a decent way of keeping themselves fully aware and lucid living while immersed in a video game or online stuff?


I kinda have a way of doing that while using your computer.

It is a simple program I made that times for a random amount of time (between 10 and 40mins.) and at that amount of time a popup appears on screen telling you to do a reality check.

If there is enough interest in it I will find a way to host it on the web for people to download.

--> I also have an iPhone app designed for lucid dreamers which reminds you (randomly) to RC.

About Lucid Living, even if I didn't precisely identify the concept, I try to be as aware as possible when I'm walking on the street. I try to notice all the details I can such as the color of the sky, all the sounds, all the smells, what people look like, what they are doing, what they might think, every architecture stuff and when I see something strange, or shouldn't be here --> RC.

Confirm me if I'm doing the right thing or if I'm wasting my time for a week lol

Do you think it's a good idea to simply pretend that real life is a lucid dream?
That's the way I do LL right now, and it feels pretty cool, everything gets this surrealistic and magical feeling and if I imagine that I walk through a dream door then even walking into a new room feels interesting and exciting. lach1
