To lucid dream is to dream and know that you are dreaming.
Once you have established this fact, you are in a better position to affect what happens in that dream. Not every lucid dream is controllable, but most of the time, you can direct the way it goes.
Lucid dreams can be fun, rewarding, healing, and be very positive for you in your waking state.
The best predictor of whether or not you might be a candidate to enjoy a lucid dream, is if you can remember your normal dreams.
No not every dream, but some dreams, or parts of dreams.
And if you experience a high level of activity, either physically or emotionally during the day, you might have a better chance at producing a lucid dream when you go to sleep.
Brainwave entrainment, a neuro-technological technique that alters your brainwave frequency, is an easy tool to help you induce a lucid dream. Listening to a specialized recording, will help your body fall asleep while keeping your mind awake, which is ideal for lucid dreaming.
How To Lucid Dream Using Brainwave Entrainment
• The best time to try to lucid dream is if you wake up in the middle of the night or if you are going to take a nice, long nap. You have to be able to go into REM. Early in the morning, or in the middle of the night, you’ve already experienced a few REM’s so it will be easier to go into one at that time (and it will be a deeper REM).
• Lie on your back, keep the lights off, get comfortable, and turn on your brainwave entrainment recording for the purposes of lucid dreaming.
• Empty your mind and gaze into the blackness of your eyelids.
• Flashes of color will dance in the darkness. Ignore them. That’s just some neural firing.
• Thoughts will come galloping out of nowhere. Don’t engage them, just let them float away.
• After about 10 minutes of listening to your recording, you should be into a meditative or hypnagogic state.
• Your mind will be in a half dream state.
• You will start going deeper through the doorway to your subconscious mind and the awareness of the outside world will fade.
• The dream world will start to come alive.
• Stay very still and relaxed. If you move, you’ll have to start all over again.
• Hypnagogic sounds (like wind) may start to happen.
• Echoes of voices may permeate your consciousness.
• You may feel some very powerful vibrations. Feel them but don’t contribute to them.
• Relax. Stay as relaxed as possible.
Creating the Dream
• If you feel the dream state coming on, and you are detached from your physical surroundings, then you are ready to begin to lucid dream.
• Remember what you are experiencing and think of it as a signal for future lucid dreamscaping.
• Finally, submerge your awareness into the dream (like dipping your toe into a warm bath).
• Use visualization and every sense you own.
• Image a scene with as much detail as possible.
• Explore your surroundings-very often everything is almost neon.
• You can use sounds, temperature, movements, sunshine etc…feel, hear, see, taste, touch it all.
• Use your strongest sense to fully engage your mind.
• At first, it will feel like a daydream but that will soon change.
• Keep reminding yourself that you are in a dream.
• Totally allow yourself to forget about your physical body and surroundings.
• Let your body fall asleep.
• Put your mind into your dream body.
• Now you are in your dream.
• Remember, you are the director, so direct away. You might have more control that you can believe.
• Enjoy your experience and when you wake up, write down it down. Who knows, you just might have the makings of a novel.
There are all kinds of good reasons to try to be lucid when you are dreaming, the least of which is to heal some aspect of your consciousness.
A totally awesome reason is just to have fun in an environment where you can lose all of your inhibitions and…………..fly.
Brainwave entrainment can help you focus and alter your state of consciousness, producing a vivid dream realm where you are the master.
Escape to your dreams.
