What does everyone use for your Mnemonic when attempting a MILD?
I find
"The Next Time I'm Dreaming I Will Remember I'm Dreaming"
and
"I Will Recognise The Next Dreamsign I See"
work rather well.

well, i like to keep my mantras short, so i dont forget what the word is and start traveling off in thaught. Mine go liek this

if im attempting to get my recall up, i do
"i will remember my dream" or "i will remember my dream when i wake up"

If im trying to go lucid, i go:
"im dreaming" "I will know i am dreaming"

I also use short mantras. Something like "100... This is a dream [or sometimes "I'm dreaming"]... 99... This is a dream...".
When I reach zero, I just start again, but I've never got to that point yet smile

When you do MILD, do you rather stick to "mantras" or do you also do visualisation?

I usually do Mantra's, but tried a visualisation the other night (earlier that day I saw a jack of hearts on the sidewalk, and did a RC automatically, because it was so weird) So I used the image of the jack of hearts on the sidewalk.

Grizzled, you didn't tell us if the visulization worked for you.

For MILD I use the mantra,"The next time I am dreaming, I WILL remember to recognize that I am dreaming."

I always use vizulizations as it greatly reinforces the MILD technique. WIth visulizations I have about a %95 success rate. siiw

Without vizulizations I have maybe a 30% success rate. sadblauw

Sorry about that. Unfortunatly the technique did not work, but I don't have an amazing LD rate, (maybe 1-2/month). I am improving on that I think though.

I had this really long one once... it went a little something like this...

"The next time I fall asleep I will dream of a white dove. When I see a white dove I will realize that I am dreaming."

I would repeat it over and over and hold a vision of the white dove. I did it for a week... repeating it to myself all the time. I was having a patch of bad dream recall however and I don't know if I actually dreamed of the dove or not.

I think a more reliable way to do MILD is to remind yourself to do a RC as you fall asleep. You will have to urge to do it, but you remain asleep and when you enter a dream you will eventually remember to do it. I also try to visualize myself doing the RC and getting the usual results that I would if I was dreaming. In my case, everytime I see my hand, the fingers are all wavy when I stare long enough.

Hey, could you please tell us what kind of visualization do you use, lucidity master?

For LDs I use:
"Next time I'm dreaming I will realise I'm dreaming"

For recall I use:
"I'm going to dream now, and when I wake up I will remember my dreams"

I usually accompany recall with visualisation, haven't tried LDs with it yet though. My visualitsation often gives me an FA, helping me to remember my dream in the real awakening.

When I do MILD as I'm falling asleep, I use "I'm going to dream now, I'm in a dream, I'm aware of my dream."

Usually "next time I'm dreaming I'll realize that I'm dreaming". Strangely I say this in english in my head smile

Another thing I like to remind myself of is that, "Inside this room, all of my dreams become reality". My favourite quote from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory smile
