Dream Initiated Lucid Dream(DILD)




You need to be able to remember at least one dream/night.

How to remember your dreams.

You need to know how to do a reality check.

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.

Reality Checking

Reality checking consists of 2 parts:


1. Questioning Reality

2. Reality Check Techniques


Questioning Reality

Questioning reality simply means asking the question : “Am I dreaming?” or “Is this a dream?”.

It means being aware for the weird things that happen around you and being aware of your
dream triggers. So you need to start questioning the reality around you even when you are totally sure that you are not dreaming.

Why would I question reality if I am totally sure that this is not a dream ?

The spooky fact is that 99.9% of the time when you are dreaming you are actually assuming that you are in the real world. Like, right now, this is weird right ? Is there a chance that this is a dream ? This post might not be real.

That’s what I’m talking about. Now its time to do a reality check.


Reality Check Techniques

1.The nose check:

  • Use your hand to pinch your nose
  • Try to breathe in

Do this now. Shut your nose and try to breathe in.

If you end up breathing trough a closed nose, then you are dreaming.

If not, continue reading.


2.The Hands Reality Check

Start by looking at your hands, now count the fingers on one of your hands, then look away and count them again. Now try to find something weird/out of the ordinary.

When you are in a lucid dream you will actually find something really out of the ordinary, line 10 misshaped fingers


3.The Reading Check

Look at some text(newspaper/alarm clock digits). Now close your eyes and then look again. If the text changed in any way, you are in a lucid dream.



Try to jump, if you start floating or you are in the air for abnormal time then you are in a lucid dream.
