That ALWAYS happens in a WILD for me. If it’s daytime and I WILD, it’s daytime in my dream. Night it’s night. If I’m wearing my blindfold IRL, I have my blindfold on in my dream. Also, if I sleep in my bedroom, I’m in my bedroom in my dream.
I like the idea of the tinted glasses, but I don’t know if it will help me; it’s night-time outside for me as well…
That can be annoying, especially when you have little control. Try doing some techniques like spinning and yelling (that sounded odd ) to get your level of lucidity up. Once you have all your LD powers, mess around with the environment and bring the sun out!
I do this quite a bit; shouting out and looking at my hands. I just find it interesting that the darkness is a common experience.
I also equate the dreamy feeling of a low-lucidity dream with being drunk. I think I mentioned this before the server wiped my last messages, but I also had a recent dream that’s a perfect example of this. (Click here)
I didn’t realize darkness was so prevalent in others’ dreams. For me, darkness is a major dream sign. Being in a dark house at night (or even being outside at night) often indicates I’m dreaming, although it never seems to have any negative connotations within the dream.
I used to have this problem a lot, which would make my LDs real short, so short I would not even bother to post em here. I just began to include in my mantra to remember todo a lucidity stimulation technique (ala rubbing hands together, spinning on axis that kinda deal) and everytime everything goes dark i just rub my hands together and BAM i can see the room again.
hmm, that reminds me of a time it happened in my LD last night runs off to change DJ entry
It seems that sometimes dreams are sort of lazy and they don’t fully create the environment or they even don’t create images at all. In such cases, you are in dark spaces or dark rooms with very few objects, etc.
My LDs are always bright. I personally beileve it’s got something to do with the person’s beleifs or feelings (either surrounding dreaming or otherwise). Not necesarily positive or negative, but if people think of LDs as bright and clear or dark and mysterious, etc. Just my 2 cents.
I’d imagine that’s true, although my dark dreams have still had an incredible amount of detail. Often, the dark environment is simply my house with the lights turned off. The proportions of the various spaces aren’t always correct, but the amount of detail rivals that in real life.
When my dreams are dark, I used to look for a light switch. Though I got into the habit of flicking my hand using TK to turn the lights on. Though last time it failed and I had to actually say “Lights!”
Thats while inside anyways, all my lucid dreams where I was outside have been colorful and sunny
