the MILD technique

The MILD (Mnemonically-Induced-Lucid-Dream) technique relies upon your prospective memory, your ability to remember to remember things.While it is helpful to have dreamsigns to tell yourself to remember to reality check to, it is not necessary. Because your ability to remember to remember to do things is so good, you can tell yourself to reality check to ANY cue. "The next time I see a person, the next time I'm talking to someone, the next time I am outdoors, I will remember to reality check." It may take some practice to develop this technique, but it is incredibly powerful once mastered.Benefits of this technique are that you will not be required to keep a steady dream journal, though having dream signs will still be helpful. If you do have dream signs, you can use this memory to help you remember to reality check to them. You will also be able to remember to stabilize a dream upon becoming lucid, and to review your dream goals before setting out. You can use MILD to remember to reality check to random cues. You will also have improved memory in daily life. You won't have to rely on reality checks during the day, but you likely will have to work on developing your prospective memory to begin with.Drawbacks to this technique are that your overall awareness will not be exercised regularly, and you may tend to neglect keeping a dream journal and finding your dreamsigns. While these aren't necessary to MILD if you've got the memory, they will make it infinitely easier. Ideally, if you got this result and are able to you should keep a DJ as often as possible and look for your dreamsigns.

Reality Checks to Dream Signs

The reality check is extremely important when it comes to DILDs. Reality checks, when done properly, improve your overall awareness of yourself and the world around you. On top of that, reality checks are tools by which you can verify that you are are dreaming. They are usually impossible things that do not work in real life, but are possible in dreams and so signify you're dreaming.Your result indicates that that you may find the most success in lucid dreaming by learning to reality check to dream signs. You may already have some dreamsigns that stand out, or the capacity to in that you your dreams often have recurring elements or that you have good recall and vivid dreams. If you keep a dream journal regularly, you are already halfway there in that you record your dreams, which will allow you to scan them for dreamsigns. Now all you have to do is learn to reality check to them! Simply practice keeping an eye out for your dreamsigns so that you can form an association- Dream Sign => Reality Check!Benefits of this technique are that you will become very familiar with your dreams, knowing both your dream signs and that feeling of being in a dream. Reality checking will increase your awareness, not just to dreamsigns but overall. You will learn to be on the lookout for oddities, which will help even in dreams without dreamsigns.Drawbacks to this technique are that you must have good recall, either enough to mentally remember dreams or you must write them down diligently. Failing to do so may leave you floundering as you will not have any dreamsigns to utilize. You also have to make sure that you do not do your RCs flippantly. You must be sure to incorporate overall awareness- if not, you will easily habitually RC to your dream sign without actually paying attention and not become lucid.
