However, this information can be dense and complex (or otherwise over-simplified to the point of losing all meaning) and until now, lucid dreaming has been seen as a niche pursuit; something to which only Eastern yogis or highly dedicated individuals can aspire.
I'm here to deliver the clear light of lucidity: to breakdown the seemingly complicated techniques of visualization, meditation, memory cues, and falling asleep consciously, and show you how lucidity can be attained by any one, given the right lucid mindset.
Here are the 10 steps that will launch your lucidity quest:
In each step, I explain exactly what to do to develop your ability to have lucid dreams. Sometimes this means dedicating 10 minutes of practice before bed or when you wake up in the morning, and sometimes there are special tips on going back to sleep lucidly if you wake up in the night.
I'm not pretending this is a magic pill for lucid dreaming - we all know that developing a new skill as meaningful as this will take some commitment - but it may well be the best quick-start guide to learning dream control available today.
This Android app is suitable for all ages and the most basic level of experience - even if you don't currently remember any dreams. These intensive practices are based on my own extensive research and experience in the realm of lucidity, which is why I believe it could change the dream lives of hundreds of thoughts of dreamers around the world. See you on the other side.
Have you ever seen a tiger in the clouds? How about Jesus in the gnarled bark of a tree - or Richard Dawkins in a coffee stain? This peculiar quirk of human psychology goes by the rather lovely sounding name of Pareidolia (say: pah-ray-doh-lee-a). Many great scientists have pondered the origins of this trait. The simplest explanation is an evolutionary one: being able to detect predatory faces and figures amid background noise gives you a greater chance of surivival.
Members of our lucid dream forum have been asking how to create dream characters in lucid dreams. The most common problem is having characters who look nothing like they should. Or they seem disinterested in your company. Or they fail to show up on command altogether. So, how to combat this? It's a matter of finding creative solutions that bypass logical expectations.
To lucid dream, I recommend being able to remember at least one vivid dream per night. That will boost your self awareness in dreams (making lucidity more likely) and also means you can actually remember your lucid dreams. Which is nice. Here are four detailed tips on how to remember your dreams more frequently. And if you don't think you dream at all - trust me, you almost certainly do. It takes an extraordinarily rare sleep disorder to deprive someone of dream sleep.
Virtual reality is upon us. Shipping of the Oculus Rift began in April 2016. Vive launched in June. And Playstation VR breaks loose in October. These mind-expanding technologies are bringing interactive virtual worlds to gamers everywhere. But did you know that you already possess a far superior form of biological virtual reality? It stretches all the way back to before the discovery of fire. To the the dawn of our species.
Chloe is a natural lucid dreamer. That's to say that all of her dreams are conscious (lucid), highly realistic and incredibly vivid. She can remember these dreams as far back as being a toddler. That level of mindfulness we regular folk strive to achieve in our dreams is always present in her nightly escapades. Her dreams, by default, are highly intense, profound and acutely self aware.
Experts agree that everyone is capable of having lucid dreams. Dreaming itself is a normal function of the mind. We all dream every night, even if we don't remember. And we all achieve conscious awareness while awake every single day. So what does it mean to combine these states? Why, the amazing ability to have conscious - or lucid - dreams. Sounds simple, doesn't it? So why do I keep hearing from people who say they can't achieve their first lucid dream?
