      Teaching Yourself to Remember to RC

      I'm a newbie but I thought I'd share an exercise for the benefit of any other newbies who want to try this. I got this tip from Stephen LeBerge's book "Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming".

      It's a seven day exercise. Each day he gives four events for which you try to remember to do a reality check. The object is to improve your memory using only your own mental power during waking hours to help train your memory for dreaming hours.

      These are the instructions:

      1. Read the day's targets: When you get up in the morning, read and memorise the day's targets.

      2. Look for your targets during the day: When you notice the event during the day, do a reality check. Ask yourself "Am I dreaming?" and do the reality check of your choice. (See the various reality checks you can perform in these forums. Eg pinching your nose and seeing if you can breathe, or looking at your hands etc.)

      3. Keep track of how many target events you hit: Perhaps note it in your dream journal.

      Each day I will post the four targets for you directly from Stephen LeBerge's book. (I hope you find these helpful... I do )

      Day One:

      Memorise these for the day and perform a reality check (don't write them down! Memorise them!):

      The next time I see a pet or animal
      The next time I look at my face in a mirror
      The next time I turn on a light
      The next time I see a flower

      The next time I hear someone say my name
      The next time I drink something

      Awesome. That's encouraging.

      If it helps anyone, that would be great.

      This technique of his is for training your prospective memory so you can master his MILD technique.

      So many of our problems persist because we see them in only one way and keep beating our head against the same wall

      I call it 'tag"ing your mind to something. It really works! i was designing a website, and it was all that was on my mind, so every time i thought of my website i remembered to do a reality check, and i have been doing reality checks ever since by trying that. so think, what is on your mind all the time?
