So many ILD's, so little reason why.

I remember when I was younger, about six to eight, I would have nightmares most nights, to the point where I would become afraid to go to sleep. I would remember nightmares vividly (don't most people?). I think the mechanism of fight-or-flight can help facilitate lucidity, it's a sudden shift in awareness, detaching the dreamer from much of the dream.

That general fear of dreams I had, I think led me to become lucid many nights as a child, though I think it could be hard to replicate that fear now I'm older.

hmm, interesting that you mention this. In some of my LDs, I'll become lucid due to fear as in I'll trip and fall from the roof of a building, then somehow I'm lucid and standing on my feet near the building. I always thought of fear as one of my dreamsigns, however, I don't have many times IRL where I experience fear thus it becomes difficult to try to induce LDing using it. Also, I'm not exactly sure I would want to try and induce a dream where I experience fear all for the purpose of LDing because dreams affect one mentally and going to bed thinking of frighting things isn't my idea of fun :content:

Ohhey, this is how I learned to LD. It's not fun and it wasn't intentional but it sure is motivating.
