Some of you may have been looking for the best techniques to induce lucid dreaming. Id like to share with you a few lucid dreaming techniques where Ive found very helpful in my attempt to induce lucid dreams.
The first technique Id like to share is the Waggoners modified Casteneda Technique of finding your hands. The first step is to sit in bed and relax. After youve felt that youre relaxed enough stare down at the palm of your hands, and tell yourself When I dream tonight, I will see my hands and realize to myself that I am dreaming. Repeat to yourself softly as you allow your eyes to unfocus. Continue to do this for about five minutes or until you feel sleepy then quietly stop. At some time in the middle of the night when you wake up, recall yourself looking at your hands again and tell yourself that you are dreaming. Try and remember your last dream if you saw your hands. As you continue to dream again, your hands will appear in front of you and youll make the connection that you are dreaming.
The second technique I want to share with you is the Stephen LaBerges MILD technique. MILD stands for Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dream. The first thing youll need to do when you wake up in the middle of the night is to recall your last dream. As soon as you think you can remember as much of the last dream as possible, go back to sleep imagining your last dream and tell yourself that that the next time you dream, you will realize that you are dreaming. Continue to do this over and over again until you fall asleep and chances are you will be in the same dream you recalled as you imagined it. Only this time, you know that you are dreaming.
Another technique I want to talk about is the nap to Lucidity Technique . Set the alarm to wake up about 90 minutes right before you normally wake up. When you wake up spend the the next 90 thinking or reading about lucid dreaming, then go back to bed with the intentions of becoming lucid when you dream again.
Inducing lucid dreams may be difficult when youre starting off. If you practice these methods mentioned above, chances are youll be able to induce lucid dreaming with these lucid dreaming techniques and explore the dream world with unlimited possibilities. A world where you are in control of everything and nothing are in control of you.
