Can Anyone Learn to Have Lucid Dreams?


Everybody dreams, even if they don't always remember them. And everybody achieves consciousness - the act of

being self-aware - upon waking up every day. So the idea of merging the two to create vivid, conscious dreams is

certainly within everyone's grasp. It just takes practice.


What's more, there are many children who lucid dream naturally, and some medications for degenerative

conditions like Parkinson's Disease can cause lucid dreams. Age is certainly not a factor.


Achieving dream control is actually quite easy once you know how to tap into the correct mechanism. Studies

reveal that everyone experiences at least one such dream per lifetime, just by accident. So with study and

commitment this state can be induced naturally at will.


There are two types of conscious dreams you can induce:


1. Dream Induced Lucid Dreams (DILDs) - launched from within a normal dream, which suddenly surges into

focus when you realize you are dreaming as it happens.


2. Wake Induced Lucid Dreams (WILDs) - launched from a waking, meditative state, whereby there is no lapse in

consciousness between the waking world and the dream world.


Let's focus on the first method (DILD) as it is a lot easier for beginners. To become lucid this way, you must

recognize that you're dreaming at the time. That's all. And there are many ways to do this by increasing your self-

awareness in the waking world and on the sleep-wake border, including:


 •    Daily Meditation

 •    Self Hypnosis

 •    Visualizations

 •    Reality Checks

 •    Dream Herbs

Using some or all of these methods daily, many people are able to have their first conscious dream within 3 days

to 3 weeks. Inducing a state of consciousness in dreams becomes easier with experience, whether you practice
DILDs or WILDs.


What Are The Benefits of Lucid Dreaming?


First, it offers escapism - that's why many people decide to take it up. In a virtual reality dream world, you can fly

over stunning landscapes, teleport to the edge of the universe, meet your favorite celebrity in the flesh, or become

a ninja assassin. It is much more realistic than merely day dreaming or playing your favorite video game. Guided

dreams are exceptionally vivid.
Beyond the novelty appeal, conscious dreaming has many self-help benefits, including:


 •   Problem solving, such as inventions or real life issues

 •   Creativity, such as creating music or artwork

 •   Facing your fears, such as phobias or public speaking

 •   Confidence, helping your interpersonal skills and self-esteem

 •   Enhancing new skills, such as martial arts of playing the guitar

 •   Subconscious communication, to resolve inner conflicts

Description: The second you become lucid, your surroundings will surge into focus. You'll have an awesome sense of self-awareness, of being in your body and in the 'here and now'. Your conscious brain is now awake, yet you're still firmly asleep in bed.
