3 Techniques to Control Your Dreams

lucid dreaming techniquesHere is a list of techniques that will help you control your dreams. However, don’t expect immediate results because even if you train hard (several times a week), most probably lucid dreams will start coming a few weeks or even months later. After all, even the most experienced oneironauts (those who can control their dreams) rarely see more than 15 lucid dreams in a month.

If you are one of the few lucky ones who can remember their dreams in detail, consider that the first step to lucid dreaming is done. What if you have almost no memories? Well, then you will have to do heavy duty workouts. Every time just after waking up, write down in a special notebook what you have seen in a dream. In the beginning, it will be random moments and objects, but even the smallest details are important. In time, you will remember whole episodes, and then – whole dreams.

Learn to realize that you’re sleeping

Failing to understand that everything that happens is a dream, you cannot control and change your dreams. It turns out that it is not easy to do this with almost ‘disconnected’ consciousness. When your notebook is filled with the descriptions of dozens of dreams, analyze them on a separate sheet and make a list of indicators of dreaming – objects, actions and situations that are repeated more often. You need to add new things to this list and re-read it regularly. These signs of dreaming, if you remember them well, will play the role of beacons, reporting that at this moment you are in the fictional world of your own consciousness. Moreover, completely different dreams of one person often begin the same way. At such moments, you can very quickly realize that you are already sleeping.

Develop critical thinking

It will help you realize that you are in a dream world. It is necessary to practice critical perception of the world even when you are awake, so that the control of your state works automatically. For example, reading what is written in the newspaper, turn around, and then get back to the text again. Since our memory during sleep runs in a ‘restricted’ mode, letters and numbers almost always change as soon as you remove them from your view.

Try auto-suggestion

During the day and, most importantly, before you go to sleep, suggest yourself that this night you want to realize the dream state. And imagine that you are already sleeping, using a few signs from your dream journal. Decide that tonight you want to do a specific action, for example, to fly.
