Reality Checking

What is DILD?

Dream initiated lucid dreams are those witch start as normal and turn into lucid dreams after a while, usually after performing a reality check.

For example, you go to sleep, have a normal dream and something triggers the thought : “This is weird, is this a dream?”, and soon you realize that you are actually dreaming.

How does it work?

Our conscious brain is partially shut down while we are sleeping which results in low awareness. We can dream about flying or traveling into the future but most of us won’t even think about the fact that it might just be a dream!

However, most parts of our subconscious remain active and our daily habits are carried over into our dreams. So our goal is to intentionally build a reality checking habit that will be also carried over into our dreams.

3 Steps for Creating a Reality Checking Habit :

1. Choose your reality check triggers

This are the things that will remind you to do a reality check. When choosing your triggers, search in your dream journal and find things that constantly recur. A person? Place? Activity?

If you don’t have a dream journal or you haven’t recorded enough dreams, you can use some general triggers like:

  • Going out or in your house
  • Being in the bathroom
  • Entering your school/workplace
  • Each time your wristwatch beeps(hourly)

2. Do a reality check when you see some trigger.

3. Repeat for 21 days to make it a habit

You will probably have your first lucid dream in about a week.

Tips for creating habits:

Lucid Dreaming Reminder

Lucid Dreaming Reminder

1. Create notes and hang them on your bathroom door and your main door. Create smaller notes and put them into your wallet or pockets. They will also increase your awareness and remind you that you might really be dreaming.

2. Create symbols – Things that will associate and remind you to reality checking and lucid dreaming. For example you can do a reality check each time you see your cellphone. Or you can find a small rock/coin and name it : The Magical Lucid Dreaming Object and carry it around with you.

Depends on how much you want to have.

Lucid dreaming is like a muscle, the more you work on it the better it gets. The more dedicated you are to lucid dreaming the faster you will progress.

We have approximately 5 dreams/night but most of them are simply forgotten. People usually confuse not remembering with not having dreams. So if you think that you don’t have dreams you are actually just not remembering them.

Real as reality itself, the feelings are real as in the real world.
