Haha. I'm not laughing at you, but at my experience with this method. The very first day, or maybe the second, that I reminded myself to ask whether
I was dreaming, that night during a dream I automatically asked myself the question. I suppose since I reinforced and planted it in my mind through
repitition and willpower. What I had read was to hold your nose, and if you could still breathe, then you were dreaming. If not, you were still
So I hold my nose, and I can still breathe. But being in a dream, and not thinking correctly, in my mind I said "aww, I can breathe, so I'm not
dreaming." Obviously I had it backwards, but I was not really "thinking" like when I am awake. It was quite funny to me the next day, instead of
frustrating. I was happy that I was able to ask myself that question during a dream in the first place.
So maybe everyone else can learn a lesson from this. The method DOES work, especially for beginners. This is probably the best method. I was trying to
have a lucid dream and not an OBE, but I don't know how much difference there is between the two. So remember to have it planned as to what you will
do to check to see if you're dreaming. Although I could ask myself, I couldn't process the logic required to get a correct answer.
