99 Ideas For Lucid Dreams

It's always fun coming up with ideas for lucid dreams. I spent a few days thinking of all the things I've done and always wanted to do in my lucid dreams. I also got some input from other lucid dreamers and came up with a great list of things to do in a lucid dream.

It's always good to have an idea of what you want to do in a lucid dream before you fall asleep. This helps you stay focused and driven. Using dream incubation with a technique like the Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams (MILD) can dramatically improve your chances of entering a dream that you envision.

Whether you are trying to have your first lucid dream or you're an experienced oneironaut, check out the ideas for lucid dreams below. You just might find something that sparks your imagination!
