  • 9 Reasons Why Everyone Should Lucid Dream
    to sleep at night he would review his surgical cases for the next day Then he would become lucid in his dreams and practice them in precise detail As a result the surgeon was able to refine and polish his techniques and perform procedures much faster than the average surgeon crediting his edge to lucid dreaming You may not be a surgeon nor a Taekwondo fighter but you can probably identify important physical skills to improve upon while dreaming From public speaking to parkour practicing your abilities in a lucid dream can have a meaningful impact on your real world success Reason 6 Lucid dreaming creates a totally natural high The moment you recognize you re dreaming it creates a rush of adrenaline and excitement It s when you realize that you are back in lucid land where anything and everything is possible This wonderful natural high stays with you throughout the dream and on waking A deliciously memorable lucid dream has colored many of my waking days Whether you are a complete beginner or an expert oneironaut we all relish the state of conscious dreaming and take away blissful new experiences almost every time it happens Such dreams can be euphoric in nature and create memories and insights that will stay with you for the rest of your life Indeed the feeling is probably one of the best natural highs we are capable of creating in the same class as jumping out of a plane or falling in love Just ask any lucid dreamer Reason 7 Lucid dreaming helps you grieve When we lose loved ones we have the sense that there is some unfinished business Whether the death comes suddenly without warning or slowly and predictably we would all take that opportunity to have another hour with the deceased Maybe we feel they may have messages for us reflections on their lives and we too may have messages for them unresolved feelings of guilt or anger or simply how much we miss them So how do you resolve such unfinished business I don t believe in the afterlife but lucid dreams of the dead may offer a psychological therapy for the surviving individual They provide a capacity for grieving and healing even if you take the view that the deceased are not actually visiting you and it s just a part of your own psyche playing the role of them Grief dreams tend to occur naturally when you ve lost someone important Repetitive thoughts of the deceased can easily filter into our dreams as do all kinds of emotional matters But if your loved one doesn t appear to you at night or you just miss them and want to give them a hug then dreaming lucidly about them is a wonderful proposition Lucid dreams offer us the closure we need to overcome our grief and move on with our lives That s not to say we want to forget A lucid experience can enable us to consciously

  • Interview with Robert Waggoner
    Like a sailor lucid dreamers manipulate or direct themselves in the larger expanse of dreaming however they do not control it Lucid dreaming appears to be a co created experience If lucid dreamers control it then they would lucid dream for hours instead of losing their lucidity or collapsing the lucid dream within minutes Also if they controlled it the lucid dreamer would have to stop and make everything appear once they flew through a wall into a new room Obviously some deeper part of the psyche controls what appears when they fly into a new room it happens without the lucid dreamer s conscious involvement This is important as you go deeper into lucid dreaming since conceptually it s a game changer Once we understand that we direct the lucid dream but do not control it then we can investigate the larger dreaming or the dreaming outside of me and my thinking aka the big picture If you think you control the lucid dream then there is nothing to investigate Conceptually you are locked inside the prison of your own assumptions My book tries to help lucid dreamers break free of limiting assumptions and approach lucid dreaming more thoughtfully One piece of that conceptual freedom involves understanding that no sailor controls the sea and no lucid dreamer controls the dream What significance do you attach to dream characters in your lucid dreams Who controls their behaviors What motivates them Robert Waggoner First you ll notice that I call them dream figures When we call them dream characters our language predisposes us to view them as fictions like TV characters or characters in a novel Perhaps some may be but as Carl Jung pointed out when talking about his dream visitor Philemon there are things in my psyche which I do not produce but which produce themselves and have their own life Consciously aware we can interact and discover the more aware dream figures Then we realize that different types of dream figures exist While some may be symbols and nothing more other dream figures appear to have conscious awareness As the gestalt psychologist Paul Tholey observed fifteen years ago some lucid dream figures seem conscious before the lucid dreamer becomes conscious and also appear more conscious than the lucid dreamer Not all but some Many lucid dreamers have reported telling their dream figures I am dreaming you You are nothing but a projection of my mind only to hear the dream figure respond How do you know I am not dreaming you Through conversations we learn that dream figures possess knowledge beyond the waking self s and can rationally defend their belief in their own awareness A dream figure may be a part of my psychological makeup much like a cell in my kidney is part of my physical makeup On its level it is important and responding to its environment However the kidney s environment or the unconscious environment is not the waking self s environment so it seems too early and too provincial of the waking me to say who controls them or what motivates them when I consciously look into their environment All I can say is that when lucidly aware you see clearly that dream figures vary in their awareness responsiveness ability to manipulate the dream and themselves What motivates them or how they perceive their environment and their relation to it may give us insight into the unconscious activities of the self Self Have you ever asked your lucid dreams for specific information about the future What was the outcome Robert Waggoner Many times Occasionally I get interested in a topic and will pursue it lucidly for a year or so In my book I detail a number of lucid dreams in which I lucidly sought out precognitive information And you know what The information seemed often very accurate and very clear Actually the potential here for scientific experimentation is enormous For thousands of years people have mentioned their belief in precognitive dreams but science rejects the anecdotes usually because the dreamer makes no prediction but only shows the dream after the fact or retro cognitively Lucid dreaming would end those scientific complaints because the lucid dreamer and scientific researcher could develop the experiment beforehand then the lucid dreamer could become aware in a dream and seek out the experimental information and provide it to the scientific researcher upon waking and before the event Lucid dreaming could revolutionize the field of para psychology Similarly it could provide insight or evidence to support theoretical physicists and many of their views on space time For lucid dreamers who want to try this I suggest that they conceive of a precognitive experiment while waking and one that does not require an answer with lots of memorization since it can be hard to remember all the details exactly when going from the lucid state to the waking state then perform it in their next lucid dream Once lucid they may need to announce that the answer will be discovered when they open a book or walk into the next room or pick up a phone but normally an answer will appear if you expect it to and provide a place for its materialization In my book I have a wonderful story of a college student who questioned whether it was possible to get unknown information in a lucid dream It took him two attempts but he succeeded Have you ever met a real person inside a lucid dream and been able to validate their presence in the mutual dream Robert Waggoner On page 182 3 of my book I relate one of those incredible lucid dream meetings which I would scarcely believe it except it happened to me Here s what happened I became lucidly aware and then see my friend Moe walk into the restaurant bar I go up to her and try to convince her that we are dreaming I hold her as we levitate to

  • How To Remember Your Dreams
    it had a significant effect on my lucid dream practice Not only are there many proven health benefits associated with regular meditation such as stress relief concentration and emotional well being but it can positively affect your dream life too Meditation leads to greater self awareness during the act of meditation afterwards in waking life and while asleep in dreams This can lead to greater dream recall on its own What s more if you practice meditation while dropping off to sleep throughout the night you ll have the ideal chance to place affirmations such as I can remember my dreams The act of meditation can appear hard to crack on the surface A great way to start meditating is listening to brainwave entrainment which relaxes your mind into a calm receptive state It s how I was introduced to meditation many years ago and had a profound effect on me Dream Supplements Dream supplements and herbs are taken primarily to increase dream intensity and one obvious side effect of this is enhanced dream recall Dream herbs like Calea Zacatechichi and nutritional supplements like Vitamin B6 produce intensified dreams in which you can have greater self awareness You will wake up in the morning with highly memorable dreams to report and as a result occasionally lucid dreams too You can take such herbs and supplements from time to time to help produce more vivid dreams and test the full range and power of your dreaming mind However this is an optional extra and I wouldn t suggest that anyone needs to take such pills in order to become a better lucid dreamer Experimenting with dream supplements is entirely up to you and be aware that there are maximum recommended doses to adhere to For more details check out this article on Vitamin B6 and Tryptophan as well as my Calea Z Review and this article on Galantamine Drugs and Dreams Many types of drugs can affect your dream life For instance prescription drugs like Galantamine most often used to treat Alzheimer s Disease actually enhances dream recall and intensity and promotes lucid dreaming In contrast marijuana suppresses REM sleep decreasing your dream time and leading to poor dream recall overall The interaction can sometimes be more complicated though not necessarily desirable A heavy night of alcohol for instance suppresses REM sleep and yet when you re no longer drunk the body compensates by entering REM rebound the next time you sleep This can lead to intense dreams and even nightmares Final Thoughts Learning how to remember your dreams is absolutely essential if you want to learn lucid dreaming Every lucid dreamer should keep a dream journal in which they record multiple dreams per week It also helps to sketch some dream symbols and scenes when you feel the urge It was only when I started writing down and sketching my dreams that I could remember my dreams going back years If I don t write them down however they disappear

    mapped as a completely separate state from REM dreaming thanks to the gamma brainwave frequency now associated with it in this experiment Lucid Dreams and Brainwave Entrainment The detection of gamma frequencies may also support the use of brainwave entrainment to increase the frequency and facilitate the onset of lucid dream states Brainwave entrainment is a form of audio technology which relaxes the listener into a meditative state It is designed to synchronize their brainwaves into predictable patterns required for different levels of consciousness With practice entering these altered states of awareness with brainwave entrainment may habitualize the process of relaxation and falling asleep consciously a known lucid dream induction technique It may also lead to improved self awareness in waking life also increasing the chances of lucidity High levels of meditation have been scientifically linked with gamma brainwave frequencies before Lutz et al 2004 and even the ability to be hypnotized De Pascalis 1993 There is also a scientific link between regular meditation to achieve altered states and the ability to lucid dream Read the full study entitled Lucid dreaming a state of consciousness with features of both waking and non lucid dreaming by U Voss R Holzmann I Tuin and J A Hobson at the JW Goethe Universitat Frankfurt Share email facebook tumblr twitter reddit google pinterest Your Gateway to Lucid Dreams Some people dream to sleep Others sleep to dream Start now About the author Rebecca Turner is the creator of World of Lucid Dreaming where she offers valuable first hand insights Learn more about Rebecca Take her home study program Connect with her on Facebook Twitter and the lucid dream forum Latest Extraordinary fantasy art by Jeremiah Morelli Jeremiah Morelli is a whimsical fantasy artist and visual storyteller He places conceptual fairytale creatures in vivid dreamscapes to capture the imagination He s also a school teacher and amazingly finds the time and motivation to create this huge gallery of artwork Such light and dark fairytale paintings make beautiful places to visit in your lucid dreams Latest 12 awesome Inception style dreamscapes Inspired and named for the notion of Flatland artist and photographer Aydin Buyuktas has created a series of works where a space of surprises creates a space that creates surprises Based on photos of Istanbul Buyuktas explains We live in places that most of the times don t draw our attention places that transform our memories places that the artist gives another dimension where the perceptions that generally crosses our minds will be demolished and new ones will arise These works aim to leave the viewer alone with a surprising visuality ironic as well as a multidimensional romantic point of view Latest 10 essential oils to boost lucid dreaming One summer the 19th century lucid dream researcher Marquis d Hervey de Saint Deny took a bottle of an unfamiliar scent on his travels to France He whiffed his scent laden handkerchief by day making an unconscious and emotional connection between the French countryside and his
