My apologies about related techniques, because this is quite simple.
“If you are lucid in real life, you can also train yourself and use it for LD planning”
Some people don’t have much LDs and when they get the first, they are way too excited to keep themselves inside the dream.
While others can get LDs frequently but are not able to achieve what planned earlier.
I had that problem until I created LD Simulation (but I may not be the first to create that, I apologize).
LD Simulation is a Lucid Dream Incubation technique to be done while you are in a higher level of awareness, you can train yourself just in case of a LD:
- Do RCs: if you are dreaming, then it turns into a LD;
- But if you aren’t dreaming, you can still use it for your advantage.
If I were dreaming, what am I supposed to do?
The first thing to do in a LD is to keep calm.
You can grab something solid or touch the wall to keep yourself inside the dream scenario.
Wait until it is vivid. Look at your hands and the place around, it seems very effective.You might need several seconds to do so, counting up to 30 is a good idea because you cannot feel the vividness in real live. I remind: I’m telling you to do this in real life.
You should be vivid and lucid by this moment (if it were a dream). Now it’s time to remind yourself about your situation and try to remember your plans.
You need to remind yourself that it is a dream, maintain focus and so on.
Sample answers to test questions:
What are you thinking about? “dreaming subject”
Where are you now? “In a scenario inside my dream”
What are you doing? "maintaining focus "
Are you aware of your surroundings? “yes, it’s a dream scenario”
What are you supposed to do next? “do my LD plan”
What have you done earlier? “Attained vividness”
Are you aware of yourself? “I must be lucid and continue that way”
After reminding about the LD plan, picture the dream as planned and imagine the beginning of it.
NOW DO A RC. You might be actually dreaming but skipped the earlier RC;
If you aren’t dreaming, you can stop your training, and maybe, do it again.
Hint: The easiest way to simulate an LD, is starting from simulating a FA. Yes, do a False False Wakening!
You can wake up during the middle of night, simulate a FA initiated LD and then get back to bed (WBTB).
That’s all I can say, the plan is up to you.
