Have you ever had a lucid dream? Lucid dreaming is basically a dream where you realize within the dream that you are actually dreaming. In some lucid dream states you can actually control the dream, altering the landscape, the story line, and things around you. Lucid dreaming can be a fun and very meaningful experience. There are actually some tips and tricks experts have recommended to achieve lucidity.

Dream Journal

Keep a dream journal beside your bed and write down your dreams from the moment you wake up. It's important that's the journal stays by the bed and is easy to reach. The idea is that the more connected you are to your dream states the easier it will be to have a lucid dream.

Staying Lucid

Lucid dreaming is so fun the problem is waking up too early. Lucid dreamers claim that spinning around in a circle while actually in the dream will keep you in the dream state longer. I personally have never tried this, I've actually had lucid dreams where I wanted to wake up and could not.

Gain Skills

While in a lucid dream you can try practicing skills that will help you in real life such as swimming or public speaking. Studies have shown that the same areas of the brain light up while performing in a lucid dream as someone would in real life. Lucid dreaming is a great way to try things with no inhibition, it is complete freedom to the world around you that you create.

Lucid dreaming is a real and attainable phenomena that anyone can experience. Lucid dreams shape your mind to connect to the consciousness of self. They help you achieve or maintain consciousness as the body begins REM sleep. Lucid dreaming has some therapeutic effects and benefits and may even be able to overcome depression. I hope this introductory article stimulates you to learn more about lucid dreaming (there are actually a lot more techniques to help achieve this dream state such as reality testing, mneumonic induced lucid dreming, and dream re-entry), there are many articles on the internet that delve deeper into these techniques.

Overall lucid dreaming can be a fun and rewarding life altering experience and I hope you can actually achieve this dream state one day if you haven't already done so. Have you ever had a lucid dream? If so, what do you remember doing in your dream? I would love to read your comments below.
