So I was going through my normal sleeping routine and , everyday when I wake up I don’t 30 minutes of meditation on my bed while laying down(I don’t even move after waking from a dream). When last knight I did it , I became slightly lucid and that’s because I was searching for something. I mean I was doing meditation on my mortality and in this I have to find the meaning of mortality, so because of this my mind was slightly active (but I was not able to control my dreams) and maybe because of this my mind got slightly lucid. I read a technique in someone’s post here about how moving fingers can get you consciously into lucid state(I think it was probably called HILD) and what I explained about my new experience is just like that.
So what I think is ANYTHING that makes you more focused (like for me it was finding the meaning of mortality) can make you lucid, but you have to be sure that what you are thinking about won’t disrupt your sleep. And BTW when I was searching for its meaning in my mind , I was asking myself what is it actually (and I remember a bit about HILD…it was probably Hargart’s induced LDing) so it’s a mix of affirmation and focused intention.
● I also want to talk about something I experienced today, in the dream WHAT I THINK is that probably whatever comes to a person’s mind first he/she will do it in the dreams. Like in the dream I was standing like on a DAM and when I thought ’ what if I jumped in the water ’ and I jumped and then at some point I was talking to a girls and her father comes in, sees a computer open, he want the computer closed but doesn’t want his daughter to close it, so then I think that maybe I should close the computer and my dream self goes to the PC. I remember that I used to close any window in my computer by pressing “ctrl+alt+f4”(probably) but I only remembered “ctrl+alt” so I pressed it and the window close. So probably the first thought that comes to your mind in the dream, your dreams self just does it no matter what. Atleast that’s what I experienced, you can tell me if I’m wrong.
