Lucid Dreaming Techniques
My brother Alex and I were once watching a professional tennis match on TV and I was thinking to myself, “I’ll bet I could be a professional tennis player”. So we went and borrowed some rackets and bought some balls and headed to the tennis court. What then ensued was later described by a passerby as “the worst display of athletic prowess I’ve ever seen” or as another family member described it, “a loser’s duel”. It turns out, tennis is hard. It looked so easy on TV. How could we be so bad at it?
For many people, lucid dreaming has been kind of like that. Not that you can watch people lucid dreaming on TV, like tennis (that probably wouldn’t be very entertaining to watch), but because you may have heard someone talk about an amazing lucid dream experience that they “effortlessly” had; or maybe you watched Leonardo DiCaprio have a dream inside a dream in “Inception” and create a whole world in his mind and it just seemed really easy. Well, it turns out, lucid dreaming can be hard.
Luckily, lucid dreaming is way easier than tennis (I now have lucid dreams regularly and I still suck at tennis even though I have put more time into practicing tennis than into lucid dreaming) and with proper technique and a little help, you can have a lucid dream tonight. Here’s how:
Lucid Dreaming Technique #1 – WBTB (Wake Back To Bed)
This is one of my favorite techniques for achieving lucidity. WBTB involves the dreamer waking up in the night, ideally after 4-5 hours of sleep and then staying awake for a few minutes before going back to bed. As you are laying in bed, you want to think about the thing that you want to dream about as you drift off to sleep. This technique takes advantage of your sleep cycle to help in having a lucid dream and can be very effective. The benefits of WBTB can be dramatically enhanced by taking the right lucid dream supplements.
Lucid Dreaming Technique #2 – MILD (Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams)
This involves waking up from a dream, visualizing yourself back in the same dream, seeing yourself become lucid, and choosing how you would like to continue the dream. Dr Stephen LaBerge, the famous lucid dream researcher, claims that using this technique, he was able to have lucid dreams on any night he wished. I, personally, have had a lot of success with this technique combined with WBTB and some good supplements.
Lucid Dreaming Technique #3 – Sleep masks
Several companies offer sleep masks that the user wears while sleeping that can flash lights in specific patterns and makes set sounds so that the wearer can recognize that they are sleeping and become lucid. These masks can be very effective and are worth giving a try.
Lucid Dreaming Technique #4 – Dietary supplements – the smart way to lucid dream
Take a look at the two pictures below. The man on the left is an early bodybuilder from over 50 years ago and the man on the right is the winner of the 1983 Mr Olympia competition (I could have found a more impressive physical specimen but this guy’s mustache was just too good to pass up). What do you think caused such a drastic difference in the results of these two professional body builders? Harder work? Maybe. Better work out equipment? Possibly. Would it surprise you to learn that the use of natural supplements (not steroids) has revolutionized the sport of body building today? Well guess what – natural supplements have also revolutionized lucid dreaming.
Today, researchers have figured out enough about the brain chemistry involved in dreaming that we are able to drastically enhance the dream experience in a way that is safe and even beneficial to our brains. Dream Leaf is a dietary supplement that has put all of this research into a single bottle making it easier than ever to have incredibly vivid and lucid dreams that are easy to remember. I’m not talking about psychedelics, which are obviously harmful to your body and brain. Dream Leaf uses herbs, vitamins, minerals and amino acids that can be found at any health food store.
Using dietary supplements for dreaming is all about taking the right thing in the right dose at the right time. That is exactly what Dream Leaf does. Dream Leaf is a tremendous breakthrough in lucid dreaming but while it will drastically enhance your overall dream experience and dream recall, and make it significantly easier to become lucid, it will not force you to have a lucid dream.
