When doing Mantras Induced Lucid Dreams, mantras are short phrases that you keep saying in your mind to reinforce an idea. They should always be in present tense, never future tense. So for example, instead of "I will have a lucid dream tonight" you say "I lucid dream tonight". It's because the mind interpret "I will" as the future, not now.
One example to help generate a Dream Induced Lucid Dream is: "When I'm dreaming, I look at my hands and become aware that I'm dreaming".
Say it during the day when you do your daytime awareness training and reality checks, and also while you're falling asleep. In the state between awake and asleep, our minds are especially receptive to our suggestions. Doing Mantras Induced Lucid Dreams trains your mind by repeating mantras (affirmations) to remember to notice when dreaming, that you're dreaming.
Other mantras are the most useful when said while falling asleep, as your last thought before falling off to sleep. These can be used for just about anything.
