Do you have a reoccurring or frequent dream event? One of mine is airport events. So the next time I am in an airport (awake of asleep) I will do extensive reality checks to confirm whether or not I am in fact there in a dream. Do this with your reoccuring or frequent dream by performing the following:
- Write in your dream journal: next time I am (in reoccuring situation) I will know I am dreaming.
- Repeat this as a MILD: “Next time I am in an airport I will wake up in my dream.” Replace quotation with your personal MILD (mnemonic induced lucid dream.)
Follow through by continuing to do reality checks.
Watch this video about dreaming.
