Hello everyone, I download a wallpaper recently from Desktop Nexus Wallpapers and had the idea of editing it and writing a text that says Are you Dreaming?, to remind me to do RC.
So now every time I look at my desktop wallpaper I read the question: Are you Dreaming?, and I remember to do my RC.
Unfortunately the wallpaper is copyrighted so I can’t upload it.
I used Paint.NET program to edit the wallpaper, you can do it too, it is really easy.
And Love to you
It’s probably a nice wallpaper, but the best RC’s are the ones you do naturally, without any reminder. I mean, how many times would you see your wallpaper in your dream? Also, if you’re used to only doing RC’s by reminders, then you’ll doubtfully do them in dreams.
Don’t worry, I made the same mistake, when I made my mobile phone alarm go off every 30 minutes. Until I heard that that way is very ineffective!
Still, if it helps you to stay motivated, you should keep it…
Such methods indeed have the problem that the trigger itself is missing in your dreams. I experimented with wearing a dream token in WL and doing a RC each time I saw or felt it, but it didn’t result in lucid dreams. Picking a trigger that occurs both in WL and dreams is the best (or second best you can visualize yourself doing a RC after seeing a certain dream sign that only occurs in your dreams.)
So you are saying that it is best to just do RC spontaneously whenever I remember to do them without any reminders?
What you should do is make a habit of doing reality checks. Also do them when you remember dreams, think about dreams, notice a dreamsign in WL, see something strange and/or uncommon that you wouldn’t see everyday, etc… It’s very effective to do reality checks whenever something happens in WL that also accurs often in your dreams.
And I wish the best for you with LD’ing
I did the same type of thing just after reading the first post of this article, I feel a little stupid now.
I’m keeping it now only because it looks nice and I took too much time out of my night to trash it…
