10 Steps to Lucid Dreams

Step #6: Can Hypnosis Help You Lucid Dream?

 

Have you ever been hypnotized?

I'm willing to bet that you have.

I'm not talking about being the unwitting star of stage hypnotism. I'm talking about the simple act of becoming mentally entranced by a particular person, thought, image or sound.

In fact, you probably fall into a hypnotic trance state every day. Whether you're gazing out of the window on the train. Or absorbed in the dramatic plot of a movie. You're focused on one specific stimulus, ignoring the rest of the world and totally immersed.

That's hypnosis.

Today I'm going to share the bones of a self hypnosis routine that could literally produce your first lucid dream tonight.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Self hypnosis is a safe and natural way to direct your conscious - and unconscious - thoughts. Like meditation, it draws on the same relaxation response that helps calm your body, reduce stress hormones and focus your mind.

All the while, you can use this suggestible state of mind to plant the seeds of lucidity. In this case, to set up a mental habit to recognize when you're dreaming.

During hypnosis, you will remain fully aware. You will stay in complete control and you can awaken from the trance whenever you choose. It is impossible to get stuck in hypnosis.

A Simple Hypnosis Routine

I'd like to share a simple hypnosis methodology so you can understand the principle behind this.

Alternatively, you can pick up my dedicated Lucid Dreaming Hypnosis audios here. It's a much more immersive experience when you have someone else walking you into hypnosis with their voice.

Here's how to hypnotize yourself without an audio aid:

  1. Get comfortable. Sit or lie down with an open, relaxed body posture. Take some slow, deep breaths and allow your eyes to close naturally. Observe your thoughts briefly then sweep them away without any interaction. Allow your inner monologue to be silenced.
  2. Release tension. Just like our lesson in relaxation, systematically release all the tension from your body, starting from your toes and working up. Visualize light or warmth moving up your body to help manifest that relaxation physically.
  3. Visualize a staircase. Imagine you're standing at the top of a staircase. This represents your consciousness. Starting from 10, slowly count and move down the steps, going deeper and deeper into the trance until you reach the bottom: your unconscious.
  4. Begin auto suggestions. At the bottom of the staircase is a comfortable, dimly-lit room with a large couch in the middle. Take a seat and then process the following hypnotic auto suggestions in your mind:
    • "My dreams are vivid"
    • "I find it easy to remember my dreams"
    • "I often recognize when I'm dreaming"
    • "I find it easy to have lucid dreams"
    • "I can control my dreams"
  5. Wake up slowly. You can, if you feel like it, stay in the trance for longer, explore the space in your unconscious mind and see where the visualization takes you. If you can't feel your physical body at this stage, it may even lead to a lucid dream. Otherwise, return to the staircase, count your way to the top, and awaken feeling refreshed and alert.

Developing a Hypnosis Routine

In my own routines, I often enter a peaceful and exotic dream garden to plant the lucid auto suggestions. I find this helps because nature meditations are one of my personal best primers. This is also the style used in my Lucid Dreaming Hypnosis audios.

Give it shot tonight. My first lucid dreams as a teenager were achieved with the help of a self hypnosis tape. There is true value in hypnosis for lucid dreamers.

Best wishes
