Lucid dreams are any ones in which you become aware that you’re actually dreaming.
When you realize you are conscious during a dream, a new world of possibilities opens up for you. One of these is to venture out into the cosmos and reconnect to your true home planet.
By mastering lucid dreaming you will be able to explore these dreamlands with absolute clarity and it will appear as real to you as your waking reality.
Only a few people know how to lucid dream on a regular basis but with practice anything is possible.
Lucid dreams provide worthy explanations for a host of phenomena which until recently had no scientific explanation. These include alien abductions, astral projection and out of body experiences.
How do you start?
1.Activate Dreamtime In The Bedroom
Dreams happen when we are in a state called REM (Rapid Eye Movement) which is the final part of your sleep cycle. This is more likely to occur during the second half of the night so if you want more dreams, you need to encourage more restful sleep to activate REM. The most effective ways to do that are to keep your bedroom as dark, peaceful and at a moderate temperature. Then before getting into bed, take a relaxing Color Mirrors bath or do a guided sleep meditation.
2. Journal Your Dreams
The most important step to successful lucid dreaming is to remember your dreams. Keep a dream journal on your bedside table and as soon as you wake up, write down everything you recall from your dream. Try not to move too much because that will activate the brain and could potentially mean you forget some of the details. Alternatively, you can record it on your phone if that helps you to hold onto the details more easily.
3. Identify Dream Signs & Symbols
Regularly review your dream journal and see if you can recognize any patterns. You may notice that particular people repeatedly appear? This will not only offer glimmers of the issues your subconscious is highlighting but will also help you start recognizing when you’re dreaming. The more aware you become of these signs and symbols, the faster you’ll be able to recognize when you’re in a dream state.
4. Do The Hand Waving Test
A great way to confirm whether you’re awake or asleep is to perform a reality check. This will enable your brain to start knowing whether you’re dreaming or not. Repetition is the key here so start by waving your hand in front of your face at least 20 times a day. When doing this, ask yourself whether you’re dreaming or not. Affirm to your higher self that you will automatically know that you are dreaming when you see your hand waving in front of your face.
5. Write A Dream Mantra
Every night as you’re falling asleep, repeat the same phrase to yourself. It should be along the lines of “I know when I am dreaming”. Keep repeating it until you fall asleep. By repeating this statement, you are encouraging your brain to be aware when you begin dreaming, increasing your chances of having a lucid dream.
6. Return To Your Dream
If wake up in the middle of a dream, try to go back to sleep, focusing on your dream and affirm to yourself that you will return to the same dream. Play the dream out in your mind, but this time, imagine that you were aware that you were dreaming. Keep focusing on this as you fall back asleep.
7. Prolong Your Dream
At first, it is extremely likely you will experience difficulties spending a long time in your lucid dreaming state. You might get so excited that you are finally in one, that you accidentally wake yourself up. Or, their mind is just getting used to the sensation that they don’t stay in it for very long. To stay in your dream longer, you might want to try spinning around or jumping up and down in the dream. Just continue what you were doing and try to convince yourself you’re still in the dream.
Once you get adept at lucid dreaming you can start allowing your imagination to run riot. If you want to visit your star system, then you can set your intention to go there and observe where you go. You will be amazed at the new world you will discover.
