Learning how to control your dreams takes a lot of practice and patience, but it can be done. If you have the desire to actively control a dream, It is important to first clear yourself of Toxins that can stop the dream process all together, such as tobacco, alcohol, and fluoride, to name just a few. Once you clear your pineal gland, you will begin to dream much more frequently.
Lucid dreaming is the ability to know you’re dreaming while you’re dreaming. A lucid dreamer is able to go to sleep at night, and wake up within his or her dream. Once lucid, you can explore and even change elements of the dream. You may notice that you’re in a location that would normally be impossible (Wait, how did I get to Hawaii?) or perhaps you stumble upon something absolutely absurd (Is that an ostrich driving a car?). Maybe your trigger has more to do with your past (Wait a second, I’m not in college anymore! This has to be a dream!). Typically, lucid dreams are triggered by some sort of inconsistency, something that suddenly causes the dreamer to stop and question his or her reality.
Imagine being free of your physical body, leaving behind silly things like gravity. Picture yourself flying, and doing so in the literal sense, feeling the air rushing across your face, the weightlessness of your body, breaking every Newtonian law out there. Imagine seeing and conversing with the natives of the dream, who provide valuable insights and knowledge about your life. Hidden in this place you can find wisdom and guidance that could change your life.
The Secrets to Starting. Keep a dream journal... As you jot down more of your nighttime adventures, you’ll notice that you often dream about very similar things. For example, you might have a frequent dream about your sister, your pet, the ocean, school, snakes — anything. These recurring dream elements are called dream signs, and they’re a powerful stepping stone to lucid dreams. Even now, without knowing it, your dreams contain certain people, events, locations and situations that pop up again and again, dream after dream. Once you identify those personal dream signs, they will essentially act as landmarks in the dream world, a great way to achieve lucidity.
Keep a journal for a few weeks, and you’ll begin to see patterns. A dream sign is personal to you. You might have a recurring dream sign that’s been with you your whole life, such as a fear of snakes. Dream signs might change frequently as you yourself change, such as suddenly including your new boss. Find a highlighter, read through your dream journal and start underlining the objects, places, people and themes that pop up more than once: a large mansion, owls, your brother Joe, the park, embarrassment. Keep a list of all these dream signs.
Locating and identifying dream signs will train your subconscious to spot them the next time they appear. If you recognize that you often dream about your old girlfriend, for example, you can use this as a trigger for becoming aware that you’re dreaming. Tell yourself before bed, “The next time I see my ex-girlfriend I will realize that I am dreaming.” Knowing that your dreams speak a familiar language with recurring places, people or themes will be one of the easiest ways to recognize that you’re dreaming.
By asking yourself the question, “Am I dreaming?” throughout your day, you will begin to ask the same question while in a dream. Your suspicion of reality will echo into your sleep, bouncing around your mind until — voilà! — you find yourself within the mecca of your own psyche. Reality checks are another cornerstone of lucid dreaming.
If you stop and think about it, you can usually tell if you’re dreaming or not: The trick is stopping and thinking about it. It may sound crazy to ask this question when you know for sure that you’re awake, but your feelings of lunacy will be justified when you have your first lucid dream. Soon enough, you’ll perform a reality check in a dream and realize: “Wait a second, it worked! I am dreaming!”
The Best Activities to Try.
It isn’t a surprise that flying is the primary form of travel among dreamers. Most people report that this is their favorite thing to do when they find themselves self-aware in their dreams. The feeling of the wind rushing across your face, the freedom and exhilaration of moving in any direction, free of all limitations, is quite an intoxicating experience.
When it comes to lucid dreaming, one of the simplest but most interesting experiences is walking through solid objects. In the dream world, obstacles only appear to be in your way. A window, a brick wall, a rock face — these things are only illusions, projections from your mind. They are not physical. Objects may feel solid when you touch them, but they feel solid only because you expect them to feel that way. Think of the object as air, and you will pass through it effortlessly.
In a lucid dream, you can create anything. Nothing is off-limits — no object, creature or contraption is out of reach. Your creation can be as large as a mountain or as complicated as a living organism. If you could create the impossible, what would you make?
The Unexpected Benefits. After a few lucid dreams, many people experience a drastic alteration of their perspectives — they realize that there is much more to reality than they currently understand. Dreams often alert us to our problems, and guide us toward a resolution. Read over your dream-journal entries and ask yourself, “Do any of these dreams contain advice on how I can be happier and more whole?” We can record and interpret our normal dreams in order to decode the messages from our subconscious. Sometimes, however, interpreting our dream journals can be tough. It’s not always possible to know exactly what your subconscious is communicating. This is where lucid dreaming comes in. You can find lost parts of yourself while actively exploring your inner world.
For a restful sleep, though, she recommends white noise: It drowns out the other sounds around you and should improve your sleep, allowing for organic dreaming.
Loewenberg explains that if you smell flowers, chocolate or perfume when you’re awake, it tends to evoke positive emotions, so it makes sense that the dream would follow a similar pattern. But there’s a biological explanation, too: “The limbic system part of the brain that controls the ability to receive smell also receives emotions,” she says.
3 Sleeping Position.
Which all makes sense: When you’re on your stomach, your genitals are in contact with the bed—i.e., they’re stimulated — and it’s harder to breathe, just like when you’re having sex ... or being suffocated. One more tidbit about sleeping position: The best way to remember your dreams is to stay in the same position you were in when you woke up. “That’s really all it takes to be able to start remembering your dreams,” says Loewenberg. “Don’t move — stay put.” And if you wake up to go to the bathroom and want to re-enter the dream you were in the middle of, try getting right back into the position you were sleeping in before getting up.
4 Your State Of Mind.
Loewenberg explains that the weather patterns you dream about are connected to your mind frame, too: Anxiety brings tornadoes, which represent “spinning out of control”; a clear, calm mind tends to dream of sunny days; and depression and sadness can bring rain. “Weather in dreams is very much connected to your emotions in real life,” she says.
6 Drugs And Vitamins.
Nicorette, for example, tends to give people intensely vivid dreams. Drugs can also affect dream recall: Since depression makes you less likely to remember your dreams, anti-depressants can counteract that effect. Vitamin B6 has also been shown to help people remember their dreams more vividly and easily. (Source)
Recent Studies have been made on Lucid Dreaming
A Technique To Control Your Dreams Has Been Verified For The First Time
Although many people have had a lucid dream, they seem to be far and few between. Now a technique to induce lucid dreaming has been independently verified for the first time, and it might be even more effective when combined with other techniques. During a week-long trial, more than half the participants lucidly dreamed, resulting in a record-breaking success rate without using external intervention.
Lucid dreaming, where the dreamer is aware they are dreaming and has some control over how the dream progresses. Once considered a myth, science has since confirmed lucid dreams do exist and discovered some methods help increase the changes that people will have them.
However, some methods require special equipment, while others prove to be are unreliable. Because people enjoy lucid dreaming and they are considered to be a potential tool for healing trauma as well as controlling unhealthy, Dr Denholm Aspy of the University of Adelaide, Australia, speculated whether combining techniques would bring greater success.
In Aspy’s trial, he instructed the 169 participants in techniques developed to induce lucid dreaming. One of these, called ‘reality testing’, gets people into the habit of regularly checking to make sure they really are awake while dreaming. Mnemonic induction of lucid dreams (MILD) on the other hand, has participants set alarms to wake them after five hours and recite “The next time I am dreaming, I will remember that I’m dreaming” before going back to sleep. MILD practitioners also imagine what it would be like to be in a lucid dream.
In the journal Dreaming, Aspy reports that reality testing on its own produced no benefit, but of those who tried the combination of reality testing and MILD, 53 percent had a lucid dream during the trial period, with 17 percent successful each night. This exceeds any previous study conducted without interventions, such as masks that shine lights in people’s eyes on detecting REM sleep.
Due to the lack of benefit from reality testing alone, Aspy recognized that the lucid dreams may be entirely attributed to MILD. However, Aspy noted that the success rate of this study exceeds that of previous studies of MILD, even those done by himself.
An estimated 55 percent of people have a lucid dream at some point in their life, it is rare for most people. Aspy became interested in lucid dreaming after experiencing one as a child. He had another on the evening before he was to begin his doctorate and changed his psychology PhD from studying non-verbal communication to lucid dreaming.
According to Aspy, most lucid dreamers initially wake quickly but with experience can learn to extend them for up to an hour. Aspy is seeking volunteers for further studies.
