      Bringing daytime-awareness into a LD

      Heyho guys and girls,

      as I started to get more and more LDs, I'm starting to notice, that I'm almost never able to bring my daytime-awareness to my LDs (I just made that term up, essentially it's the normal behavior during the day). I always kind of remember my goals and in the LD I either try to teleport to my own world and end up somewhere completely different and wake up or I just randomly start flying or do something else.
      It is like I never really behave in a LD like I would in real life. This makes it kinda hard, to complete any goals I have.

      So I'd like to hear your advice and experience. Maybe you had the same problem. What helped you bypass that issue? Thanks in advance

      (btw I hope I'm posting in the right sub-forum. I mean it's kinda a dream control problem, right?)

      I don't understand. It sounds like this is a dream goal you are trying to remember to do during your LDs, but you say you always kind of remember your goals.

      What do you mean by normal behavior during the day?

      I experienced this a lot. I would recall goals and tasks, but would much rather focus on something else while lucid. The thing is, unless we have a high level of lucidity and deeper access to our waking memories, we're not entirely ourselves. Our life experiences and memories play a huge role in determining how we react to certain situations and think. So, unless you have high-level of lucidity and clarity of memory you can't fully behave like you would in waking. However, you don't have to sync up that much to do goals and tasks. Just have remember enough to give them more priority.

      I think this is a pretty common thing. In my experience it helped when I directly connected my waking consciousness to my dream consciousness, meaning that dream induced lucid dreams gave me a lower level of self awareness, but other methods of lucid dreaming such as reentering dreams (DEILD) made me a lot closer to that daytime-awareness thing you are talking about.

      Thanks for the replies everyone

      I don't understand. It sounds like this is a dream goal you are trying to remember to do during your LDs, but you say you always kind of remember your goals.
      I didn't describe it very well so I'll give an example here: I got lucid in a dream and after a while I remembered, that my goal was to teleport myself to my own world. So I went ahead and created a portal. It teleported me to some kind of kitchen and in the LD I was happy with that. Shortly after I lost lucidity.
      This is what already happened with many LDs. I remember, that my goal got something to do with teleporting but I never get any further.

      What do you mean by normal behavior during the day?
      In the same LD I described earlier there was a good example for that.
      Now, I've already imagined exactly what I'd do in my LD, so that I could complete my goal without any problems. My idea was to create a portal by touching a wall with to fingers. In the LD however I did that by making an x with electricity, that came out of my hand. I'm still wondering why I did that because I've never thought about that in real life.
      These small things happen a lot in my LDs and thats what I mean with daytime-awareness. Daytime-behavior would probably be a better word.
      There is a lot of difference in the normal behavior and how I act in a dream. This is what I'm trying to fix, so that I can think and act properly in a LD.

      I experienced this a lot. I would recall goals and tasks, but would much rather focus on something else while lucid. The thing is, unless we have a high level of lucidity and deeper access to our waking memories, we're not entirely ourselves. Our life experiences and memories play a huge role in determining how we react to certain situations and think. So, unless you have high-level of lucidity and clarity of memory you can't fully behave like you would in waking
      That sounds like a valid explanation to me . I guess maybe if you had some kind of trigger, you could regain access to your memory. Like with every RC, tell yourself where you live and what your name is or something.

      However, you don't have to sync up that much to do goals and tasks. Just have remember enough to give them more priority.
      I think my problem was that my goal was to complicated so I decided I would do something easier first and come back to my main goal later.

      I think this is a pretty common thing. In my experience it helped when I directly connected my waking consciousness to my dream consciousness, meaning that dream induced lucid dreams gave me a lower level of self awareness, but other methods of lucid dreaming such as reentering dreams (DEILD) made me a lot closer to that daytime-awareness thing you are talking about.
      Makes sense to me, but sadly I'm not able to do neither DEILD nor WILD consistently.

      Thanks

      So I guess it's just a matter of experience as with most things in LDing. I'll go on with DY and I hope that it'll get better at some point.

      Some find it useful to have a routine that highten self-awareness which they do automatically upon becoming lucid, like: rubbing hands, rotating, affirmation, etc. Actions done in a pre-fixed order which you can practice by visualization when you're awake.
