What is lucid dreaming? And how can it help us experiencing life-like, vivid dreams? Read on to find out all about it!
Lucid dreaming is an amazing experience; it takes a combination of courage, luck and a natural gift to be able to do it correctly. It was once considered a myth, but science has proven its existence in recent times, helping provide methods to increase the opportunity of people having it.
But what is lucid dreaming? And what are the best methods to control your dreams? Well, lets begin saying that there is no foolproof way of guaranteeing someone that they will not fail in experiencing them. There is no magic pill to have vivid, lucid dreams. There are, however, some things you can do in order to greatly raise the probability of having one.
One of these methods is reality testing. The name partially reveals what it consists in: it’s all about getting people into the habit of checking if they are awake. This allows your conscious mind to constantly check and evaluate if it is experiencing a fabricated reality.
The second method is more hands on and controlled. Mnemonic induction has people set alarms to wake them every five hours and in order to recite carefully to themselves “The next time I am dreaming, I will remember I am”, before going back to sleep.
Finally, add some lucid dreaming music next time you go to sleep. Here is some coming from our main YouTube channel:
These are all great methods that can help you control your dreams. Their effectiveness, however, is much higher when they are used together. Try them out!
