A Look at Lucid Dreaming – with Heather
Lucid Dreaming is the ability to be aware that you are dreaming while you are dreaming. Realising that you are in a dream allows you to control or change things that are happening during the dream.
It can be very vivid and immersive. When you experience a lucid dream state, it is unlike any meditation or visualisation as you feel immersed in the environment of the dream.
Did You Know?
On average, your dreams last 2-3 seconds, and you can experience up to 17 dreams per night (even if you don’t remember them)? The first stage of Lucid Dreaming is about preparation.
You need to train your brain for the experience. So, be patient with yourself and try not to be disheartened if you don’t manage it the first few times. Try keeping a Journal or Diary.
This is helpful as it helps your conscious mind identify what is a dream vs your waking life. Make sure that you are well rested. If you are sleep-deprived, it can be difficult to remember your dreams.
So it’s important that you have been sleeping well for a few days prior to attempting a Lucid Dream.
If you are keeping a Dream Journal, you might notice that you are not only dreaming nightly, but as a result of regularly dreaming, your mind begins to be aware that you are dreaming quite naturally.
Pay attention to your sleeping position. You may notice that sleeping on your back, right side, left side, front or however, produces more, fewer, or even no dreams.
You may move around a lot during sleep, so the position you fall asleep in may not be the one you wake up in. You may also want to note your position when you wake up during a dream.
All of these things will help you in your pursuit of Lucid Dreaming.
Try not to meditate for too long before going to sleep. It’s fine to meditate for 5-10 minutes just to relax before sleep, but if you meditate too deeply, you may not dream at all.
The reason is that meditation will do the brain’s job during your sleep cycle. This is my personal observation, which I have noticed from my own experiences of keeping a Dream Journal and meditating before sleeping.
Entering a Lucid Dream
This is my top tip for entering a Lucid Dream. Set the alarm to wake up during the night. Preferably halfway through your normal sleep pattern.
If you sleep for 7 – 8 hours on average per night, then you’ll want to aim to wake up 3.5 – 4 hours into your sleep cycle. When you go back to sleep, you’ll find you’re not only dreaming but that you are Lucid Dreaming.
If you don’t fancy setting the alarm, try drinking some water before going to sleep, it’ll help you wake up at night. And there you have it. My top tips for Lucid Dreaming!
