Lucid dreaming is knowing that you are dreaming, while you are in a dream...allowing you to take control.
To know that you are dreaming is truly an amazing feeling. Almost indescribable. If you haven't experienced it yet...oh man, are you in for a treat!
It's as if you jumped right into the TV and became a character in your favorite film or video game, except it's even better than that. It's your own fantasy world where you are free to do anything...where anything is possible.
Let me start you on your journey...
There is so much potential to what you can do when you wake up in your dreams. Lucid dreams are gateways into uncharted territory.
Here is a list of just a few things you can do while lucid:
This is just the tip of the iceberg!
You sleep for 1/3 of your life. Why not learn to become lucid!?
What if I told you that you could have a dream that felt as real as waking life?
Imagine the possibilities that lie in a dream, let alone one that you are aware of. Dreams in which you are lucid are much more vivid and real than ordinary dreams. Sights, sounds, textures become much more intense and real!
How do I become lucid in my dreams?
If you have dreams, you can become lucid. It may come more naturally to some, but it a skill that anyone can learn. Getting started is easier than you may think.
Even if you have never become lucid before, you can easily implement a few simple changes to increase your chances.
The first step is to learn about dream recall. Dream recall is the ability to remember your dreams upon awakening.
Most dreams slip away from memory in the first few minutes upon waking, so the best way to improve dream recall is by keeping a dream journal. It's important to write them down in order to solidify the memory and revisit them later.
Once you've logged a few dreams, it's time to revisit them. This is important for learning your dream signs. Dream signs are events, emotions, places, people, etc. that commonly reoccur in your dreams. They can help signify when you are dreaming and will help you become lucid!
1) Dream Induced (DILD) simply means that you became aware that you were dreaming during a dream. Typically, you notice something is strange or recognize a dream sign and become lucid.
2) Wake Induced (WILD) means that you transferred from a waking state directly into a lucid dream. This requires heightened body and mind awareness as you are drifting to sleep, although it can sometimes happen without trying.
There are many techniques and methods for achieving lucidity. Once you have learned the fundamentals, it’s time to practice some different techniques to see what will work best for you.
Two common and effective techniques include:
Wake Back To Bed (WBTB). Wake up after several hours, stay up for a short time, then drift into a dream. This technique works well with attempting a WILD.
Mnemonic Induction (MILD). This technique, made famous by Dr. Stephen LaBerge can produce multiple lucid dreams in the same night!
Now that you have a few of the fundamentals down, it's time to let the fun begin!
