      i read a few things to increase lucidity..

      if anyone has read The Art of Dreaming by Carlos Castaneda then you know what im talking about... Im not sure whether this part is fiction or not but Don Juan says that if u fall asleep in your dream in the same position that you fell asleep in waking life then you will awaken in the same dream and you will have more control and it will be more real... I also read that if you can touch the roof of your mouth with your tounge in a dream your dreaming attention will increase significantly... Can anyone confirm these techniques... I would try to confirm them but i am not good enough... yet...

      The worst mistake you can make is to think you're alive when you're really asleep in lifes waiting room.

      Re: fiction or not

      hi
      I have tried both these techniques and would say that both have worked for me. I have not received any other feedback if anyone one else has had success using them to date.
      The tongue to roof of mouth is some what described here –
      http://www.dreamviews.com/forum/viewtopic....p=233796#233796
      The first time I tried I woke up; however, became successful at a later time. The key thing I was interested in was my feeling(s) during this period in the LD. There is something I cannot describe rationally, but is a clear alertness during the dream when performing this technique. Again, no one has confirmed this….
      The positioning yourself in the same position technique seems to bring-on dream realism, but in my dreams I sometimes think that I wake-up (meaning that I feel that I wake up in my bed), not realizing that I am really still in dreamtime and then I tend to fall back to normal dreaming . I wake up feeling like I blew-it, but try again another day.
      Once, I had multiple LDs with this technique, and on what seemed to be another awakening (4th time) I walked out of my bed and arrived at my mother staring at me in the kitchen in silence, only to then realize that I was actually awake walking around my house. One of those moments she thought I was high on something I guess…
      Anyway give them a try, let me know what you experience. I find a realness closer to our everyday world, where you can bump into things instead of floating through them.
      It’s strange but when ever I do that same position technique I end up waking up from the actual place I fell asleep, then I start my LD journey from there, until the cycle starts again.
      good luck!
      I play broccoli with checkers every night.

      I know what you mean about the alertness, I think! The only time I seem to get this is when I try spinning, and end up bashing into stuff! I think this must be a much less painful, quick method so I shall try to use it instead, in future xD I've never tried the falling asleep technique though, and it sounds like a great way to find somewhere that actually exists, to try new things in, or see from other angles, nice and quick! Perhaps it's also a good way to stabilise an LD, when you're just about to wake too? False awakenings galore I'm gonna try it out!
