takes up a third of our lives. Something that consumes such a huge piece of our
entire life must have some purpose to it. Since the beginning of time people
have wondered about the dream world and compared it to every day life and the
real world around us. Some individuals beg to spend their lives finding that
one dream that makes them happy and have it manifest into the physical world; while
others believe dreams are only a way for our body to throw out the trash we gathered
during the day, or to sort out our emotional responses. Sure, the body needs to
dream, because without our dreams scientific studies show we would go insane
and eventually die. To some persons walking the path of psi dreams are a
gateway to the world in-between the physical world and the world of the spirit.
The dream is a bridge to our inner-self and the world(s) of energy that are
seen and unseen around us.
is my belief that only difference between astral projection and lucid dreaming is
that in lucid dreaming you fall asleep before you leave your body. I am not
going to tell you what you should believe about the astral/dream worlds. Those
beliefs are for you to discover on your own. There are loads of books on the
subject. Frankly, my telling you in my short articles would not be as much
benefit to you as you finding a good book to learn from and form an opinion regarding
lucid dreams for yourself.
dreaming has been recorded to occur while in the alpha brainwave frequency
state. The most recognized definition of lucid dreaming is: “Dreaming while
conscious of the fact that you are in a dream.” Understand that around us in
the waking world our conscious sees and believes what is being shown to us in
our everyday lives, it is our reality. It is only a step away to knowing in our
dream world. When we are lucid our conscious knows and recognizes the world we
have entered into upon dreaming is just as real as the physical world we have
just left behind. It is just as real to us there as it is here. So the work we
do there is just as real. The consequences and benefits will come. One state of
alpha just so happens to be while we are at a longer extended period of rest,
the other while we are slipping into a meditative state or reflective state,
still fully aware.
dreaming can provide you wonderful insight to yourself, your future, the people
and the places around you. You can contact your guides, passed on relatives, do
energy work and etc. You are the only one who can limit the possibilities.
the mind to lucid dream. Simple! You will be making moves all through out your
day to remember your dreams and be a part of them. You do this by:
Programming your self in meditation/self-hypnosis to go lucid during
dream states. (Do this least once a day in a quickie meditation)
Tell yourself often you will be going lucid and will be aware during
your dreaming tonight.
Try not to have drinks or food that would disrupt your sleep or keep
Exercise: A fit body leads to a fit mind. You are trying to create a
daily pattern to keep your mind and body healthy and energized, so eat
correctly too. (Follow your doctors orders, I am not a doctor or a scientist)
Get into a normal pattern of sleep. That can take a few weeks. Make
sure the sleeping environment you are in, is quiet, cozy and comfortable.
Keep a dream journal with a pen or pencil next to your sleeping place.
Get a good dream book
So, you’ve done all that now you‘re ready for bed what do
you do? Your mind is the one that dreams so you must think about lucid dreaming
and being a part of it. Before you fall to sleep mentally prepare your mindset
to take part in your dreaming process. You can do this by prayer, meditation,
asking your guides, make an intent to go lucid, or whatever way is comfortable
to you. Frame of mind is important.One
example of my own experience: If I have something on my mind I will ask for
guidance on it in my dreams and think of the subject over and over again until
I fall asleep. I will also program myself to remember my dreams. The more I
think I am going to dream the more I am aware of my dreams the next day or that
I am actually lucid dreaming so I take part in them.
DREAM! When you find yourself dreaming, you can ask questions; visualize
healing or solving the problem you want. Explore the universe. Nothing can stop
you in a dream but you and your fears so have none. Even nightmares are there
for a reason. If you ever feel you are in danger wake yourself up, you are in
total control of your environment in the dream world. When guides are involved
they will help you by sending you symbols. Look them up in a good dream book.
With more practice you can talk to them in your dreams if that is your intent.
Make sure you include that as you’re drifting off.
you wake up during the middle of the night write down all you can remember. If at
all possible try not to let alarms wake you on short notice. Awake slowly.
Relaxation and being open to listening to your self is important. Bells (phones
ringing) are meant to startle and make you alert - you don't want to be
awakened abruptly. In the evening I would set my alarm early enough that I
would fall back to sleep and then I would start dreaming again. By the time my
alarm sounded off again I had many more dream details because I was allowing my
conscious mind to wake up and wander around on subjects while permitting my
body to continue to rest. When you wake up or get your message in your dream
write it down.
for interpreting dreams:
are there to force you to see symbols to help you solve your problems or help
you to see a situation more clearly.
can be in reverse, a death in most cases means a birth. An objective view does
help. So ask a friend about it. Keep in
mind not all dreams are precognitive. Some are just junk your mind is getting
rid of; other dreams are details of your life you are going over. The important
dreams the symbols will JUMP at you and those I would pay attention to. Try to
remember for later recall the energy feel of the different type of dreaming you
Good luck and don’t give up, the more you absorb
your mindset into this the faster it is more likely to happen!
