Are you ready to learn how to Lucid Dream? Are you ready to experience anything you want in any dimension you want while you sleep in your warm cozy bed? If so, you’ll have to forget and toss aside any hesitation you may have about if it is even possible. Lucid dreaming is possible and it’s a proven scientific phenomenon.
Getting Started to Induce Lucid Dreaming:
While learning any new skill, it takes time and practice. Inevitably you’ll have feelings of frustration and you’ll feel as though it’s not possible. That’s okay. It’s okay that it takes time and everyone moves at a different level. For many of you, it will be the first time using this part of your brain. Take it slow, the whole process is fun!
Fun exercises to get you started:
Imagination plays a key role in maximizing your lucid dreaming experience. When you dream, your brain can literally dream of any reality. But because all day we’re experiencing reality as we know it, our brain can be limited to the structure we commonly know. Just because that’s what we’re used to doesn’t mean we can’t bend that reality.
Close your eyes during any quiet time during your day and in some small way bend your world. Perhaps imagine a chair hovering a couple feet off the ground, a wall changing color, a fireball in the palm of your hand or..well…whatever you want. The only thing limiting you is your imagination. Doing this skill helps flex your brain muscle to begin to alter reality and to sensitize your brain to alternate ways of experiencing reality.
A Simple Thought:
This simple thought surprisingly goes a really long way. Before you go to sleep at night, just focus for a couple seconds on this thought: I will remember my dreams when I wake up in the morning. This has worked for me and many others have said the same. There’s something about saying this to yourself that makes you remember your dreams.
If you want to get a little more serious, you can keep a dream journal. When you wake up in the morning, simply jot a couple quick memories down – on your phone, in a journal, wherever. Even if you don’t write down any details, a couple words will bring it all back to you.
Once you have these two steps down, you can look to more advanced techniques towards becoming a lucid dreamer like reality checks.
