In my daylight hours I wear glasses. When looking for dream signs, I realized I don’t see through glasses in my dreams. I thought I could use this to trigger lucidity, but I can’t seem to be aware of it to check while dreaming. Is there some sort of state check that I can do during the day? Should I ask myself if I’m wearing glasses often during the day?
Any tips or guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.
Welcome to the Night Club club! I’ve heard that if you consciously put on glasses in a lucid dream, the dream will become even clearer. Perhaps develop the intent to put on glasses, maybe a special pair, say gold rimmed frames, that could be a state check in a dream.
One way to work on recognizing dream-only phenomenon during the day is to do what I call “daytime MILD”. Basically, you recall and visualize a dream scene (it can be more effective after relaxing and reaching a meditative state first), reliving it, and then you visualize yourself recognizing the dream sign and becoming lucid in the dream. I like to loop over visualizing a key image that I want to recognize, and affirm to myself “I’m dreaming! I’m dreaming!” I’ll repeat this for a while. By the way, this is also how I “set” a PM target for PM exercises.
