In dreams everything seems to make sense, but once you wake up, and you still remember the dream, you're like, "That was a weird dream." Amirite?

The voters have decided that BlindMist is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

some of the rationality we have is shut down while we sleep

that way, when something crazy happens, it's easier to believe that it's real so we don't wake up

doesn't always work though with lucid dreaming and all

Agree, but that being said, I've almost perfected a form of the Mr Charles method to achieve full lucidity.

@Frank_n_Furter Tell me.

Question the world around you IRL, then you'll do the same thing in your dreams without thinking, and you'll be like, "wtf? Holy shit I'm dreaming! god mode activated"

Interesting...I tried to lucid dream last night, but couldn't. I did manage to feel like I got no sleep whatsoever, though.

Oh, I was expecting like a step by step guide haha. A friend of mine was telling me a few interesting things on how to practice though:
Draw a triangle or something on your hand everyday. If it's not there, you know you're dreaming.
Look at your hands often, usually in dreams the details aren't very good, you'll have like 7 fingers or something.
The ever famous "pinch me I'm dreaming" Although, I think this one isn't very accurate. Sometimes in my dreams I think I feel pain. I know I'm not really feeling pain, but it seems real.
Check the time. Again, dreams aren't real good on details. The time might say "38:26"

Those methods don't really work for me; my dreams are actually pretty good with that stuff. I have a few methods but I thought you wanted that one specifically.

Be really sleepy. And I mean sleepy. Not sleepy when you're working and wide awake when in bed. If you're sleepy when lying down, imagine hard what you want to dream about, but don't focus on staying awake. You will skip the very light, light, deep and very deep sleep and go straight to REM. it feels like dream melds with reality and then everything become a dream. Try out superpowers to confirm but don't try to physically move yourself until younjnow you're In a dream.

Listen to a recording to tell you you're dreaming like those tapes people use to learn while asleep.

Sleep intermittently for 1 hour, then half, then 1 then 1.5 then 2 then 2.5 and so on. Use your alarm clock to wake up, but use a soft alarm. At some point you'll stop waking up and be able to reach REM. it's easier to notice you're dreaming like this, but it will be less stable and shorter. Good for practice, but you can't get too excited (hello smilie)

Mr Charles is the most reliable but takes a lot of prep time. Beig sleepy only works for some because your mind usually hoe blank just before falling asleep. If you can keep active thought right up until the end, your very light sleep will be cut short and you begin dreaming. The sleep tape one works rarely and produces unstable dreams but you'll never lose lucidity while dreaming. I already covered yhe review for intermittent sleep just now.
