There are many sites selling binaural beats for lucid dreaming, but not that many resources detailing how to use them. I found this article helpful.
Even after reading this article, i'm still confused about which frequency is best to play at which time.
I read that the Theta frequency is best for lucid dreaming, but what confuses me is that i have a binaural mp3 sitting in my list called DeltaDreams.. ??
Anyone care to enlighten me on propper use of binaural beats and which types?
I also recommend their Isochronic Tones version as this is a more advanced version of Binaural Beats, it is said to be easier on the brain to product the frequency following response.
In my review of both I explain some starting points:
1. Listen early in the morning, after about 5-6 hours of sleep, when you enter much longer REM cycles and your brain is naturally more active during sleep.
2. Wear headphones (essential for Binaural Beats anyway) as this helps submerge you in an inner world, and block out distracting external stimuli like noises outside.
3. Truly relax your body so you fall into a state of meditation easily. This means no fidgeting. Just imagine the sensation of every muscle group going limp or invisible and melting into the mattress.
The MP3s described here go through beta, alpha and theta frequencies. It first matches your waking state then guides it into a relaxed, dreamy state. That's why it's ideal for WILDs. It's also excellent practice for meditation which helps you trigger spontaneous DILDs in later dream sessions.
Delta is a deep sleep. I always understood that we don't - or rarely - dream in delta (non-REM / slow wave sleep). So I am pretty sure this wont help you lucid dream.
Once lucid, your brainwave frequencies become highly active - alpha, beta and even gamma, which is even more alert than you are right now!
There's some good sleep and lucid dreaming ones here: http://www.iso-tones.com/tones.html as well as some other fun ones.

wow really? those waves happen while you dream? no wonder it's so easy to wake up from a lucid..
While experts have considered lucid dreaming a mixed state of REM dreaming and waking cognition for years, this new EEG evidence led scientists to conclude that it is a new state of consciousness altogether....
Rebecca wrote:Yep, it was proven by the Neurological Laboratory in Frankfurt, Germany, where scientists recorded a 40 Hz (or GAMMA) range in the frontal and frontolateral areas of the brain during lucid dreams.
Strong meditators have been found to function between 40-70 Hz while awake. Maybe brainwaves are simply a measurement of our brain activity,not necessarily an indication of "state of mind". But perhaps to get our physical selves in different states we naturally lower brain activity to let our subconscious direct us to another state?
Also, I have been using Kelly Howell's Ocean Lucid dreaming subliminal messaging before I go to bed. Seems to be working fairly well. I have only entered a LD once from it, but my dream recall has improved as well as the vivid level of them. If only I dream checked during them i could have turned it into a LD!
