What triggers a lucid dream? Discussion anyone

I'm really curious the hear what triggers your lucid dreams?? :dreams:

In a psychology class I once took we discussed lucid dreaming briefly at one point. My instructor told us he could lucid dream in one way only: when he dreamt about driving home from work. He'd eventually look at his hands gripping the steering wheel and it would trigger him to realize he's dreaming, then he could go wherever he wanted and do as he pleased until he woke up.

I once dreamt simply of swimming in the ocean and almost getting attacked by a shark... so I punched it in the nose like you'd see in movies :dusto: Realizing hey, I'm dreaming and just swimming around with enjoyment.

So I think I'm kind of the same way as far as the hands triggering awerness goes...

I'm very interested in hearing some personal experiences and how the hands and other (maybe even unique) triggers are related to signaling to yourself that you are dreaming! :geek:
