As you almost definitely know if you're here and reading this, the most well-known way to trigger a lucid dream is to realise that you're dreaming (DILD.) Aside from the run-of-the-mill reality checks like your hands, clocks and mirrors, I've read that keeping a dream journal can allow you to recognise recurring themes and events in your dreams. These are 'dream signs', and I guess the utility of them must be to trigger reality checks, or let you realise outright that you're dreaming. The stuff I mentioned above – like hands and clocks – these are common dream signs, ones that happen in everybody's dreams due to the parts of the brain that shut down during sleep, etc.

What I'm interested in are /yume/'s uncommon dream signs; recurring details in your dreams that you don't think everybody gets. Post them!

Additionally, what are some dream signs that you think everybody must get (due to the brain's weird power re-allocation during sleep) that nobody really talks about or are relatively undiscovered?

OP here again. Honestly, I'm just posting my dream sign as a reply because this imageboard is dead, and I feel like people are more likely to read my thread if they see a reply.

This dream sign is of the second kind listed in the OP. I think it probably happens to everybody, because of how the clock thing was described to me.
In my dreams, if I'm with a group of people (which I often am,) the members of the group keep changing into different people. Not in front of me, but as if my brain can't keep track of everybody that's there. In my most recent dream journal entry, I was exploring an abandoned industrial building with my immediate family, my grandparents and my uncle. inb4 b&, I'm 18 I realised when I was writing my dream down that at some point my uncle was replaced by three brothers that I didn't know, but in my dream I didn't realise this had happened. So it's possibly a good reality check to try really hard to recall if people from a group you're in are mysteriously missing or replaced.

No. Also, WILD is better.

It always seemed that way to me when I was lurking. Pleased to hear otherwise! I'll start browsing more regularly.

>WILD is better

Not the discussion I was trying to have, but thanks for the bump I guess.

Beggars can't be choosers. DILD is for the type of people who like to shove dildos up their ass, okay? WILD is easier to do because it requires far less preparation and conditioning. WILD also produces far better results. The dreams you have from WILD are more vivid and you feel more in control of them. This has to do with brain chemistry. It's easy to slip back into a normal dream world with DILD, but that's not the case for WILD. I'm sick of seeing all of these homosexuals telling people who are naive and just getting into lucid dreaming that DILD is the best option when it isn't.

Hindered movement.
Whenever I attempt to run in my dreams I move as if I were underwater. All of my limbs are slow and I have to actually concentrate on pushing my legs from the ground to accomplish anything at all.

Apparently it has something to do with your actual physical body lying still and failing to send movement signals, so, of course, it doesn't feel like you're moving in the dream either.

Another one, though I'm not sure how easily you could go about recognising it while dreaming, is things happening exactly the way you expect them to. Say, you walk into a room that's dark and spooky and you think to yourself that there's definitely a monster in there. A second later, some shitty cryptid makes itself known through its shriek. Or you're having a conversation with someone, you say something stupid, and expect a certain reaction - and they do exactly what you predicted. It's basically the same dream manipulation you use when lucid, but subconsciously. And if you're a pessimist, it quickly turns the dream into a nightmare, annoyingly.

There aren't any obvious signs that would set me off, so I just get into the habit of performing the nose block test in day to day situations where something weird or upsetting happens.
