i have been trying to have a lucid dream for the past week or so. i have kept a journal and am remembering 2 plus dreams a night. last night in my dream i was hunting and dreampt i had got a deer. Then later in a different dream i asked my mom if i had gotten a deer or had i been dreaming? is that a sign that i am getting closer to lucid dreams?
Another thing is, how will i know if i am lucid. when u are in a lucid dream, is it like u are actually there and living? like u are living in a dream and anything can go your way?
i had my first Lucid Dream last night, i've only been trying a couple of days, but its been on my mind the whole time...anyway, i just knew, because it was in the middle of a nightmare where my friend had gone insane and was trying to kill me...as for your question i think you are getting closer, when you asked your mum that question you should have done a reality check! I recommend doing them a lot, they help.
I definitely think it means you're getting closer. When I look in my dream log prior to my 1st LD (couple of years ago) I see I discussed dreaming in my dreams as well, or telling dreamcharacters about dreams I had. So keep working, reading and thinking about it. Your brain will do the rest.
It is important that you study your dream journal (if you do keep one). Look for similarities. Like if a lot of your dreams take place in a certain location or you dream about the same person. Whatever may be fairly common in your dreams. Then make a serious effort to do a reality check EVERY time you encounter or even think about this. This will get your brain into the habit of doing reality checks. You will surprise yourself when one of your reality checks fail. You will have to do another to convince yourself that you are really dreaming because it will seem so real.
But now realy, like i have said in notes before. be aware on your sorroundings all day, dont just haste through everything, look around you, and when you have a dream, you will notice that its not like reality. (deep)
no realy, if you pay attention to your sorroundings in your everyday life, you will do a constant reality check. and then, when you notice that something is wrong. you will know that its a dream.
