Spinning in Lucid Dreams

Postby Rebecca » 27 Aug 2011 01:53

To increase your lucidity, Stephen LaBerge recommends you spin around to trigger a sensation of movement and stimulate the conscious brain. However, this seems to be met with mixed results.

So I want to know... What effect does spinning around have on your lucid dream? (Please pick the option that most frequently represents your experience, even if it doesn't happen EVERY time.)

For me it has done both...increased lucidity and changed the dream scene but not always within the same dream

Is there a way that all of these people posting random stuff can be stopped?
It needs to be about 20% cooler.

Forum spammers are total pigs. (Sorry pigs, you are lovely creatures, much better than spammers.)

Myself and Jonathan are moderators and we delete all spam posts as soon as we see them. But as you can imagine we aren't online 24/7....

As a regular member I would be more than happy to offer you moderator permissions which means you can push a button and kill the spam as soon as you see it. This would help me immensely and would not involve any other responsibilities or work for you.

PM me if you're interested (any regular members...)

Thanks ;)

I've been doing this method of strengthening my lucid dreams for many years now... 15+ years, at least. I never heard about LaBerge back when I started doing this. It's just something I found through experimenting that worked to keep me within my dream.

this works but I suspect that its more that spinning creates an awareness and the spinning itself is not so important. I sometimes simply 'will" for the dream to become stable. I might think a statement like this is my dream and I want to stay here" or some such thought and it settles the dream

This was the first stabilization technique I ever tried and it failed miserably for me :( At least I now know to try something else :)

I guess I'm one of the unlucky ones. It always causes me to wake up.

Tbh, I haven't really tried it so much because I'd rather not wake up, but I might give it another go. It has always caused me to go back to my physical body, but then I've only tried it when the dream was fading.
