      Getting clear about MILD

      I am just fine tuning LaBerge's MILD practice, and I am looking for some clarification.

      So I see that the idea is to "re-watch" the dream you've just had, but this time imagining yourself turning lucid in it.

      Since most dreams have a string of possible moments where this could happen, is it better to pick just one moment in the dream and replay that single one over and over again ? Or to watch through the whole dream, imagining myself turning lucid at each of those moments ? i.e turning lucid several different times, in response to the various dream signs that I might have picked up on ?"Here's me turning lucid when I met my old school friend, here's me turning lucid when we were served weird food at the restaurant, here's me turning lucid when I realise we're both dressed as batman".

      I tend to do the second - mainly because I enjoy variety ! But maybe it makes me a bit less focused than taking the "repeat the same moment multiple times" approach ?

      So what do other people do ?

      In order to know you're dreaming, you have to learn you're dreaming. To learn you're dreaming, you have to learn what a dream is like. Think of this time where you're imagining the dream as a time to learn what a dream is like.

      Thanks for that Dolphin, that makes a lot of sense.

      So what also follows from that is that it could be just as helpful to re-imagine significant moment from lots of different dreams, rather than just focus on one single dream ?

      I have wondered the same thing about imagining becoming lucid at more than one juncture in a dream that I just woke up from and I have experimented with that. It seems most effective to pick the spot that is the most vivid and then vividly re-imagining that spot in the dream and becoming lucid in it. When I would do it with more than one juncture in the dream, it would seem to dilute my intention - but that may not be the same for everyone.

      ThreeCat went on a retreat hosted by Stephen LaBerge and came back with this nice succinct description of MILD: http://www.dreamviews.com/lucid-expe...ml#post2160952
