This is the second in Psychic-Dream.com’s series on having lucid dreams. Following these methods is really not too difficult, and adapting them to your life will greatly improve your odds of having awareness of your dream world.
In this section we’re going to look at a great way to encourage lucid dreams: Starting a dream journal. Just get an empty book (a large one, because you’ll be doing a lot of writing) and keep it with a pen next to your bed. When you wake up during the night or in the morning, write down any dreams that you can remember STRAIGHT AWAY. Try not to move in bed too much (don’t keep your journal somewhere you can’t reach from bed) because you’ll start to forget your dream. Write down absolutely everything you can remember, no matter how insignificant it might appear. Also, try to write without paying too much attention to what you’re writing down. If you start thinking for too long on a certain moment of the dream, you might forget other aspects of it. Just let it flow out. It’s also a good idea to mark the date of each dream you have.
This is the first in a series on getting you to have lucid dreams, where you’re able to be completely conscious of your dreams and manipulate the experience to your liking. Lucid dreaming can help you conquer fears, come to terms with loss and increase your spiritual awareness. It can also function as something of a gateway to having out of body experiences.The requirements for getting yourself to have a lucid dream are simple enough, but it can take a while and you’ll need to stick to it. What’s especially difficult is that you’ll have to alter your habits when you’re at your laziest. That is, when you first wake up after a deep sleep.
The key to having a lucid dream is to gain the ability to realize that you’re dreaming. There are many techniques and tricks to doing this, but we’ll just focus on a few of the popular and simple methods for the time being.
