Tactics Needed For Lucid Dreams
Lucid dreams are dreams you are having, but you are aware that they are dreams and can actually control them. You are aware of every move you make, and the things you say. You decide where you want to go, what you want to do, what you want to say and who you want to be with.
Lucid dreaming allows you to be whatever you want to be in them, and share them with whoever you want, whether it is for a romantic getaway or an action packed thriller.
Lucid dreams are obviously better than the normal dreams because you hold the reigns in them. You are the actor and the director in them. Sometimes these dreams can be so lifelike that you might get confused that you are dreaming or awake. There are times you need to check that you are lucid dreaming or if what you are experiencing is real.
One simple test is to try reading something. In a dream the words you see will keep changing, making it impossible to read properly. This is a sure sign that you really are having a lucid dream.
You may be fantasizing about something that you really want badly, such as a promotion, or a new home. This may be impossible in real life, but in your lucid dreams where you control the outcome, you may see yourself already doing the new job and details of it, or vividly see you moving into the house you want to purchase, for example.
You can change the dream so that what you want to happen is how it ends in lucid dreaming. By using your sub-conscious part of the brain that controls creativity and imagination to control your dream and picture how it would be if your dreams came true, a lucid dream can be a way to see that possibility.
Lucid dreams can be brought about by simple techniques. While your body rests and relaxes for another day, your mind can be conscious.
There are techniques to Lucid dreaming that must be learned. It can be a slow process, but it can be learned with patience and practice.
By jotting down notes as soon as you awake that describe the lucid dream, you will be better able to learn to recall scenes and characters from your dreams. Don’t worry if you can’t recall everything because lucid dreams often recur at some point so you will have another chance to finish jotting it down. With this technique your lucid dreams will give you reference material for dream interpretations or other things.
If you are a writer this information is invaluable. You may have your next novel lined up. In a lucid dream you create the scenes and actions. The dream ends the way you want it to. Lucid dreaming is a time to pacify our inner ambitions and desires and plan their execution in reality.
Recalling more each time you try. When you wake up during a dream, sit and try remembering everything about the dream. Once you do that, then go to bed again and then try returning to the point in the dream where you woke up and carry on dreaming from there. These dreams repeat often so more you recall the more vivid your dream will become.
Waking up before your normal waking time may cause you to hit the snooze alarm and doze off a bit and this is the prime time for lucid dreaming. You may even think you have been awake the whole time, but you have been experiencing a lucid dream that seems very lifelike.
Soon you will be surprised at how easy it really is to do. One short cut you can try is to use self-hypnosis; it can help prepare your mind to recall vividly your lucid dreams.
A recent development in sound technology can open the possibility for lucid dreaming to be possible. By stimulating certain areas of the brain, it has been proven to induce the dream state that is entered during lucid dreaming and can make it easier for you to recall your dreams.
