  • Which Is Better - MILD or WILD?
    ll start dreaming while meditating with no lapse in consciousness You are then lucid dreaming So my advice is start with MILD because it s simple and great for beginners and introduce WILD as well when you have time I was a teenager when I started doing OBE techniques which helped prime me for WILD as they are the same phenomena It s ok to keep lucid dreaming a secret and not tell your family and friends It won t really help anyway unless they lucid dream too or are interested in learning as they won t be able to relate When you do need to talk about stuff and ask questions visit our Lucid Dreaming Forum which offers genuine support from other lucid dreamers Return to Lucid Dreaming FAQ 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 chosen scent On returning home he put the bottle away out of sight and out of smell His cunning plan was to have a servant sprinkle a few drops of the scent on his pillow at night Lo and behold Saint Deny recorded dreams that took place at his vacation spot the mountains of Ardeche Latest 22 optical illusions that belong in lucid dreams Lately I ve become a touch obsessed with the optical illusion paintings of Canadian artist Rob Gonsalves

  • Why Are There So Many Misconceptions About Lucid Dreaming?
    in the middle These are people who were never educated properly in the scientific method and so have no system to decide what is and isn t real yet feel we should draw the line somewhere So at one end of the scale you have people who believe anything if it suits their philosophy In the middle the uncertain ones who have no way to measure what s real and what s not and so flip flop on their beliefs And at the other end people who trust in the scientific method to find objective truths The middle group who flip flop over their beliefs are the ones who will potentially label you crazy for believing in lucid dreaming Partly because they are uneducated and don t know what it is nor the science behind it and partly because they don t know how to categorize what s real even if the evidence hit them in the face If that all sounds pompous then forgive me I don t have all the answers but I do have an educated opinion And I place a huge amount of importance on education This doesn t mean you have to have a fancy college degree you just need a thirst for learning The day you stop learning and caring about finding answers settling instead for whatever you are spoon fed by your local spiritual religious group then you have officially given up on meaningful intellectual progression in life Don t worry about what these other high school students think They re too immature at the moment When I explained the OBE vibrational state to my friends in school they said Haha You used a vibrator QED One of the best things I ve found about getting older is you and your peers get wiser and you can have more meaningful discussion of these things So I think it s pretty awesome when teenagers ask questions like this because it suggests you re already ahead of the game and actively applying your intelligence Don t let your school friends put you off this method of thinking because it really does serve you well Return to Lucid Dreaming FAQ 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

  • Why Can't I See Hypnogogic Imagery?
    start developing my own dream imagery By this point the hypnogogic state has begun automatically but it s not something you need to look out for In fact some WILDers recommend ignoring the hypnogogia altogether and focusing on the mental space beyond your field of vision So try to create a calmer more quiesced inner state as you practice WILD Like meditation keep your mental activity to a minimum so it becomes very still like the surface of a pond without any disruptions The counting method can certainly come in useful for focusing your unconscious intention to lucid dream but that is probably better for a MILD experience With WILDs you need to work at maintaining the meditative state in which your mind is clear focused and quiet Return to Lucid Dreaming FAQ 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 chosen scent On returning home he put the bottle away out of sight and out of smell His cunning plan was to have a servant sprinkle a few drops of the scent on his pillow at night Lo and behold Saint Deny recorded dreams that took place at his vacation spot the mountains of Ardeche Latest 22 optical illusions that belong in lucid dreams Lately I ve become a touch obsessed with the optical illusion paintings of Canadian

  • Why Don't My Reality Checks Work?
    dream signs and this tells me that your habitual reality checks are only skin deep That s to say you re going through the motions but not actually questioning your reality on a profound level during the waking day When you ask a question in your dream whether lucid or not your dreaming mind creates the answer that you expect to see or that otherwise fits in with your dream reality After all we have evolved over millennia and spent years of our own lives learning to find patterns in our environment This ability continues on in the dream world so that if you see a Martian your unconscious mind will quite happily generate a false memory of Martian s coming to Earth in order to explain its appearance Equally if you try to push your hand through a wall in a dream and expect it to resist as in real life then that will probably happen In order for your reality checks to work you need to train yourself up in a new kind of introspection a way of thinking that you may not be used to Furthermore you should expect certain outcomes with your reality checks I ve discussed both aspects at length in my article on How to Improve Your Self Awareness so that your reality checks can work close to every time The article explains how it s not enough to simply count your fingers or do a double take at the clock instead you have to study your fingers or the clock with new eyes and see them as you ve never seen them before You can then progress to imagining and expecting the impossible which is how your reality checks will consistently prove false in the dream world I also recommend day time and night time forms of meditation to help you become more attuned to your internal state and distinguish differences between your waking world and your dreams This is another in depth topic but you will find lots of starting tips in my article How to Visualize for Meditation and Lucid Dreams and further instruction in my ebook Guided Meditation for Lucid Dreamers Beyond proper dream recall your ability to recognize when you are dreaming and become lucid is heavily influenced by your ability to tune in to the moment while awake True self awareness by day and by night is key Return to Lucid Dreaming FAQ 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

  • Why is it Hard to Move in Lucid Dreams?
    advice is to start off doings that you CAN do in the physical world to give yourself a chance to explore some fun lucid dreams without challenging your conscious logic Try walking running exploring and interacting with characters Then you can progress on to impossible things like flying and telekinesis I too found it hard to fly walk through walls and manifest objects at first The key is to stay as lucid as possible and slowly build up your confidence with little impossible tasks If something doesn t work leave it alone and try something simpler There is a conscious block in the way and you need to resolve it in baby steps Once you get going it s a sharp learning curve I have no qualms about running through brick walls or jumping off the Empire State Building anymore Return to Lucid Dreaming FAQ 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 chosen scent On returning home he put the bottle away out of sight and out of smell His cunning plan was to have a servant sprinkle a few drops of the scent on his pillow at night Lo and behold Saint Deny recorded dreams that took place at his vacation spot the mountains of Ardeche Latest 22 optical illusions that belong in lucid dreams Lately I

  • Are Precognitive Dreams Real?
    rose in the middle At face value these are both compelling cases of precognitive dreaming But mathematics could still reduce these events to mere coincidence The only way to build up a solid base of evidence for psychic dreams would be to consistently record every dream and have a separate person record all the significant world events of the following day then compare the data Even so matching this data would be a difficult and highly subjective task Precognition and Lucid Dreams Like all psychic predictions I find the idea of precognitive dreams requires blind faith After all many of our dreams are too interpretive and scattered to make sense of the future information we re supposed to be receiving However lucid dreaming offers a unique opportunity to ask for specific information about the future Just like Googling next week s weather we can become conscious in our dreams and ask unpredictable information such as What are this Saturday s winning lottery numbers What will be the NASDAQ s best performing stock tomorrow What will be the flight number of the next major commercial plane crash If there were any substance to precognition this would be a fantastic way to build evidence for it We could limit our dream themes predictions to one per night and ask for clarification in as much detail as needed For example a lucid dreamer could predict the sinking of the Titanic by asking for the name of the ship the number of people on board the number of victims and the time and location that the ship would go down Having access to such explicit information would leave no doubt as to the existence of precognitive dreams Final Thoughts Currently the only support for psychic dreams comes in the form of anecdotal evidence And let s face it if we dream of a plane crash and then a plane crash occurs in the next few days that personal experience is pretty compelling because it s packed with emotions and seems too striking a coincidence from the special first hand perspective No wonder some people think they re psychic But this sort of coincidental anecdote doesn t really help us If anything it casts more doubt over the reliability of so called psychic dreams and may even hinder genuine attempts to investigate the nature of any unconscious sixth sense while dreaming If nothing else we can gain future insight from our lucid dreams by taking advantage of the unconscious intuition principle I mentioned earlier If Mary had a unconscious inkling that she was pregnant it would be quite easy to ask her lucid dreaming self whether this was the case Other lucid dreamers while talking to their unconscious self ask for personal insights that would otherwise go under the conscious radar It s a great way to explore your unconscious mind Share email facebook tumblr twitter reddit google pinterest Your Gateway to Lucid Dreams Some people dream to sleep Others sleep to dream Start now
