"The problems of the world cannot be solved by skeptics and cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were." (John F. Kennedy)
What is Lucid Dreaming?Lucid dreaming is a skill that occurs when you become aware during a dream and you can control what you do or see, to some extent. The time you spend learning this skill is totally worth it in the end, but takes discipline to master it. Learn to have a lucid dream in order to solve problems, understand abstract concepts, increase self-confidence, or to simply have fun. Imagine the thrill of being totally aware and fully conscious while dreaming; imagine being capable of experiencing anything that your heart desires! Lucid dreaming is a natural ability that everyone has; it's not some special gift that only a few extraordinary individuals posses. Having a lucid dream is like being the director of your own movie; you just have to learn how to have one.
Throughout history, lucid dreaming has formed the central core of virtually every shamanic and mystical practice. It allows the shaman to visit the spirits realm to gain healing power and insight. The realm of lucid dreaming is a realm of nearly unlimited potential. In Asia, lucid dreaming has long been seen as a means to achieve or speed up the process of enlightenment. There were even schools of "Dream Masters" in the 12th century Tibet which taught how to lucid dream. Your journey of self-discovery and self-empowerment begins with a simple choice: "I want to do more with my sleep!" and allows you to experience things that you can't experience in real life.
Step One: Power Napping
Find a time during the day, before 3 PM, where you can have a good one hour sleep. You don't need to change your clothes and don't worry about wasting your time. People who think they will do less work because they sleep during the day have no imagination. There's a lot of benefits napping will give you, such as improved stamina, perception, help memory, increases alertness, reduced stress and even helping you lose weight. This is a critical step in learning how to have lucid dreams. Without an alarm, naps shouldn't last longer than 90 minutes, or else that could be a sign that you are sleep deprived.
At first you might find it difficult to fall asleep in the afternoon, even when you're tired. Give it some time; like any skill, napping takes time and practice to get it right, but the effort is totally worth it. On the other hand, if you find it difficult to wake up in such short notice, try the caffeine trick. Caffeine takes up to 30 minutes to enter the bloodstream and have an effect on your concentration so drink a cop of coffee before going to sleep. You will wake up naturally half an hour later once the caffeine kicks in. Try to limit the nap to 30 minutes - this is called Power Nap - so you don't enter deep sleep. Always remember to set up an alarm as backup.
Power Naps have other purpose as well and that is to help facilitate lucid dreaming. Best way to become aware that you're dreaming is to perform "reality checks", which means to notice the weird things happening around you. Not being able to read the numbers on a digital clock for example could be a good hint that you are dreaming. Once you realize none of it is real, you can do anything you want. Your imagination is the only limit once you've learned how to lucid dream.
Getting Good at Lucid Dreaming
If you want to learn how to have a lucid dream, all you need to do is follow the steps outlined bellow. We will be focusing upon getting your wings and preparing you for the flight. The rest we leave it up to you.
With time, lucid dreams can become very addictive, because they are convincingly real. Don't forget that the real world lies outside your house, not in your dreams. Even if having Caprica Six as your permanent Cylon girlfriend seems very tempting, remember it is only a dream. Wake up, Neo!
What is Real?
Lucid dreaming helps us understand that we are just as asleep when we think we are awake, as we are in dreams. "When it comes to the nature of our "reality" most people don't consider it something worth questioning. Reality is something that is taken for granted. When you are dreaming you usually aren't aware that you are dreaming so in effect, your dream is your "reality" at the time. At an early age we are taught what is "real" and we accept it as granted." - Marc Van DeKeere. We forget to question, to be curious about the nature of things. Learning how to have lucid dreams gives you the opportunity to "Know Thyself" by pushing your limits one step further and experiencing new things.
Don't forget to have fun, keep experimenting and remember to sleep well. We hope you found useful this quick guide on how to have a lucid dream and we wish you many great experiences in both the dream-world and the wake-world!
