      I'm on my phone in school (<3 smartphones.). I took about 5 minutes to hear everything I could. (whispering, writing, snoring, pens drop, etc.). I started to feel everything on me(put my awareness on the way my sleeves feel, the way my sboes feel etc.) I observed everything I could see, I I tried tasting the air but it had to smell or taste.

      Anyway,a few notes: when you do these things, it's not like they change, the way your shoes feel on your feet stays the same, the sounds of everything is as it always it, BUT now your noticing it. So it may feel like your doing these things to no avail, but you are doing it right

      I have a question. I was doing these things like a check list (sight is done, let's try hearing now, ok now touch etc.)
      Is it ok to do that, or is it supposed to be all at the same time (which would be mind fuck.)

      Nice, it sounds like you are doing well. Go through the checklist like you did and once you complete it, attempt to do all at once. Try to hold on to the all at once awareness for a bit.

      I'm seriously struggling with this today I don't know whether it's the fact I've been up since 3AM this morning after a failed WILD and then a failed attempt to get back to sleep, or what. Anything I can do to bring this state of awareness back? Because it feels too draining currently, although I really don't want to waste precious time

      Just currently tried/trying to notice everything all at once and it's so hard. I focus on different sights/sounds and it's hard to focus on reading etc whilest doing it. But I see the sense! So I'll try to keep it up. Great tutorial Yoshi Thank you.

      Though my head's beginning to hurt.

      Lol yeah it's a good bit different than what we are used to. Im doing 10 minute sessions every hour. That may not be enough but I'm working on building it up.

      I don't see how sense focusing will help us become lucid in a dream. I can understande questioning everything dream wise, but eh, idk.

      Take it slow when you are first starting out. Just attempt ADA in sessions throughout the day at first. Don't overwork yourselves and if you start feeling to drained, take a break. Try to be/feel relaxed as you practice ADA. Just chill back and slowly begin noticing this and that. Build it up to where you are noticing everything and try to hold on to it for while. Just do this a few times throughout the day at first.

      @Juggalo...sleep deprivation can certainly cause difficulty focusing and being aware. Don't try too hard and just take it slow. There will be plenty of time for you practice, so don't try to rush things.

      Good luck to the both you! !

      You eventually need to focus less and less, therefore doing it naturally. The whole point of this though, is so that you gain a perfect understanding of everything around you. How it acts, where it is, what it is, and the correlation between you and it, etc (not sure if I worded that right)
      Basically so that you know your waking reality inside and out, so that when you dream, you pick up on the fact the dreaming reality is entirely different, therefore raising awareness - and we all know awareness within a dream leads to lucidity.

      Meh. I'll probably leave it for today then, or just focus on one sense or two senses now and then as the day progresses. At least I'm going to be getting a REM rebound tonight (hopefully), which means one massive-ass dream, which means one massive-ass chance to become lucid.

      Ah, this is because no matter how real a dream seems, it is still a dream. Once you get that awareness built up, you will start to learn/notice the difference in the feeling of being awake and being in a dream. Many times, I have walked around in a dream that seemed perfectly normal, but I could just feel/sense that it was a dream.

      Look at it like this. How many times have you just been walking around in waking life and thought you were actually in a dream. I mean 100% thought you were dreaming? None, right? That is because, when you are awake you know it. You can feel/sense it. A natural Lucid Dreamer knows when they are dreaming, because they can feel/sense how different it is than waking life. Next time you are in a Lucid Dream, truly take in your awareness. It just feels different than being awake.

      Here is a quote from http://www.dreamviews.com/f12/naiyas...secrets-61802/ ....

      "The easy way to Lucid Dream is a state of constant awareness. Make your day one big long reality check. Only instead of a specific RC, begin to question everything around you at once. Quiet your mind, and simply be aware of your state of consciousness. Be aware of the FEELING of LIVING and being AWAKE. It's a much different feeling than being asleep or even astral projecting.

      I believe that many natural Lucid Dreamers do this unconsciously. They just "know" when they are dreaming because they know it feels different. This also may explain why naturals have a hard time explaining exactly how they get lucid. They don't really GET lucid...they ARE lucid every moment of the day and night. "

      Bookmarked! This tutorial is great, thank you for writing it up. Definitely going to try it. I'm an absentminded person, and always rushing from one thing to the next. It will be good to learn to take things slow and be aware.

      This is a really great tutorial. I think this is the best way that I DILD. Most of my DILDS starts with me just instantly knowing its a dream. I have been wondering why I suddenly get lucid. It's just because I am aware. I have been practicing being in the moment for a while now and it really does help with dreams. One really great way of practicing this is to really look through your eyes. Clear your mind and just explore your surroundings. A lot of people have a hard time doing this because there is so much mind clutter going on in their heads. I good way I like to fight this is to think about what I need to do for the day when I wake up. Then set times for when they need to be done. Everything else in-between can be used for being aware. When the mind comes creeping in with worries and thoughts, let it go, you already set times to get things done. Just be aware in waking life and you will be aware when you dream.

      For example:
      What do I have to do today?
      Go to the gym and work on my website. I will go to the gym after lunch and work on my website for a few hours around five. The rest of the day I can be worry free because I am getting what I need done and I don't need to think anymore today. Just live in the moment and be aware of my surroundings.

      Doing this actually feels really good. Its soul warming to be conscious and not consumed by mind things all day.

      From what I understand (I may be wrong) this thread isnt about trying to not be consumed by thought, its about training awareness of the senses and the environment. Cuz I'm never really consumed by thought, but I still have to train awareness.

      I just had an idea involving binaural beats. Gamma - Associated with high level information processing, multi-tasking, and high energy.
      Mid-Beta - Increased problem solving, focus, and alertness.

      Would listening to these during your awareness "session" help you become more aware of everything going on?

      Or do binaural beats not work at all? I've never really tried them.

      This is good, but sometimes i can't do this because I need to pay attention to my teachers, then I forget about ADA and remember for only a few minutes later.
      How can I remember more often?

      Being aware is not being consumed by thought and being present. You can't be lost in your head and aware at the same time.

      Just be very aware of what the teacher is saying. Paying attention and not being scatterbrained is being aware.

      I'm in for this! It seems to me like something you can do quite often during normal days... Cuz ever since busy life smacked me in the face a few months ago I've hardly had any time to WILD (which in turn caused quite the long dryspell), and I wasn't really interested in DILD because (as I think/used to think) it relies too much on chance. But with this technique apparently you can make DILDs a pretty sure thing^^ Hope to see some progress soon.

      So, basically just note everything you hear, see, feel, taste and smell?

      Like, I always hear stuff, but never really note it... so should I just tell myself what I'm hearing? I always feel the way my clothes feel on my skin, the way my shoes feel, but I never note it in my head. I taste stuff but never really note it in my head.
      Is noting these things what we should be doing?

      I haven't used binaural beats either, but it is definitely worth a shot. You never know, It may work well for you. Good luck!

      Yeah, if you are getting distracted from your learning, I suggest you wait until after class to practice ADA. Your education should always come before lucid dreaming.

      Yeah, it works really well with a little practice and effort. Good luck to you and be sure to let us know how it goes .

      Well you don't necessarily have to make a mental note of them...just noticing them is good enough. Blinking is a perfect example. Everyone knows they blink, but most people don't even notice. Breathing is the same way. Just keep the constant awareness. If you always recognize your shoes, clothes, and taste then that is good. Make sure you are also recognizing everything else.

      I understand it now. Basically, you are becoming aware of your environment via ALL of your 5 senses thus increasing your chance to notice something odd in a dream by 5x. Instead of only visually observing which I normally do, I need to auditory observe, does everything sound right? Does everything look right? Does everything feel the way it should? Does everything taste how it should? Like, if you miss a chance to LD because you visually missed something in a dream, you might hear something odd, which would cue you to know your dreaming.

      I finally get it.

      Edit: This is right... right?

      I think you're being overly anxious about awareness
      Just remember to relax, chill and observe your environment. Also, you can pay attention to your breath in different spots, like the lungs, chest, throat, nostrils, or, even the tiny sensation that you feel when the air you breathe touches your upper lip.
      There is no right way to do this, just do what feels right and concentrate and maybe raise the level when you feel it's easy. For the time you invest in this, you will be greatly rewarded.

      An utterly fantastic tutorial. Thanks for writing it up, Yoshi! I'm definitely going to start practicing this...I'm about to have a shower so I'll try it then. The feel of the water, the sound of it hitting the floor, the shampoo running over my hands...and so forth. I'll report back when I'm done.
