The Top 5 Benefits of Lucid Dreaming
The Top 5 Benefits of Lucid Dreaming
There's multiple benefits you can get from lucid dreaming, that can make your life better. Here are a few of the benefits that lucid dreaming can give you.

Learn a New Skill- This is one of the best benefits you get from lucid dreaming. You can learn new skills or improve on an existing skill in your lucid dream. IN waking life, people use visualization to help improve things like athletic performance and public speaking. Why? Because when we visualize something before we actually do it, the patterns in our neurons get activated in our brains, so you act the same as if you were actually doing it, and this is related to lucid dreaming because lucid dreaming is like visualization on steroids. It's as if you get to be in your own virtual world, making it even more powerful than visualization. So if you want to learn anything, like playing an instrument, or improve playing a sport, you can practice in a lucid dream.

Phobias - Lucid dreams help people get rid of their phobias, since in a lucid dream, you can make your phobia part of your dream, and then confront your phobia, without having any actual threat, letting you learn how to deal with your fear in a non threatening environment, and overcome it.

Creativity- Lucid dreams are great for creativity. While having a lucid dream, you got access to your subconscious mind, which gives you have access to a huge amount of creativity. Lets say you are working on a project, but you got no idea where to start. Just became lucid and then you can ask your subconscience, "Show me some good ideas for my project", and then the subconscience will give you information.

No Limits- Would you like to have the ability to do whatever you wanted to do? It's possible in lucid dreaming. You have absolutely no limits, and having no limits really makes lucid dreaming very enjoyable. There's the ability to do things you could never do in real life. For example, being able to fly. Yes, you can defy gravity and fly in lucid dreams. The possibilities are endless. You can be a trillionair, meet *Insert your favorite sport player*, or talk to your subconscious. These are just some of the many, many, things you can do in a lucid dream.

Feel Amazing- After waking up from a lucid dream, usually you'll feel amazing. This is especially true after you have your first few lucid dreams. There's nothing better than waking up after one of your first lucid dreams and thinking "I did it." It gives you a sense of well being since you've accomplished something big. This tends to stay with you throughout the day, making you feel like you can take on anything the day can throw at you. You can call this the "lucid glow."
Physical Healing in Lucid Dreams
Physical Healing in Lucid Dreams
Lucid dreams and the relation with physical healing has been explored a lot by lucidity researchers Robert Waggoner and Ed Kellogg. Their experiments and research have revealed some possible correlations between lucid dream healing and receiving actual physical healing of the body. While the placebo effect shows the mind's ability to heal the body without and medication, can the same thing be triggered with lucid dreaming?

The lucid dreamers tried to achieve dream healing in multiple ways, Waggoner notes. While lucid dreaming, some would consciously manipulate their dream body and mentally provide healing thoughts on the diseased area. Others directed healing to the diseased area, which a lot of times was manifested as light shooting from their hands. One group even made a healing environment or healing potion.

Ed Kellogg has done a lot to investigate lucid dream healing: He first experimented on himself in 1984 by becoming lucid in a dream, and trying to heal a severely infected tonsil. After waking, the signs of infection and pain had gone down by about 95%. With Ed's doctorate in biochemistry, he took a very scientific approach to this subject and has pioneered healing in lucid dreams.

On the other hand, some lucid dreamers report no noticeable success with attempting lucid dream healing. This group was more likely to try indirect methods of healing, like seeking medical advice in the lucid dream. It appears that lucid dreamers who have the most success with healing, act directly with the problem, focusing their healing intent, and got a stronger expectation of success.

You can get more info on lucid dream healing from Robert Waggoner's book: Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self.
Visualization Training for Lucid Dreams
Visualization Training for Lucid Dreams
Do Part A once or twice a day for at least two or three days. Each session doesn't need to be longer than five minutes. Then go to part B.

Part A.

1. Get an object to look at, like an apple, a candle, or a rock. Choose something simple and small. Place it a few feet away from you and sit facing it.

2. With your eyes open, try to encompass the complete object with your vision. Try to take in on overall visual impression, and not just concentrate on specific feature of it. And time you get distracting thoughts and perceptions, just acknowledge them and let them go away.

3. After a few minutes of doing this, close your eyes and watch the afterimage of the object until it goes away. Next open your eyes and look intently at the object again. Do this multiple times; the afterimage should keep becoming more and more clear and vivid each time. Don't strain your eyes to create an image. Just let the clarity emerge as if of its own will.

Part B.

1. Start out by repeating Part A several times.

2. Then with your eyes open, move your sight away from the object and try to visualize it right in front of you, several feet away, floating at eye level. It can seem strange at first, but don't strain. Just try to let the outlines of the image emerge in space. Another way to start is by concentrating on the way you feel about the object and not on its detailed structure. Just accept that the item occupies the space where you're gazing, and notice that feeling-that the image occupies the space because you want it to. The sense of seeing an image will show up from that awareness and feeling.

3. When have no trouble visualizing the item right in front of you, re-do step 2, but this time visualize it right inside you. Since some lucid dream induction methods require visualizations of items in the throat area, try to see the object in your throat, and then move it out. Move your visualization from external to internal positions over and over, until it's effortless.
Lucid Dream Tip: Understanding the Value of Will
Lucid Dream Tip: Understanding the Value of Will
1. With a pad of paper, close your eyes and think of all the possible negative consequences that you can get from the present lack of will. If you don't lucid dream very much, dwell on those unpleasant consequences for awhile, and as you do, write them down, and contemplate them. Think of lost opportunities.

If this gives you negative emotions, allow yourself to feel them. You don't have to write a long essay or even a sentence. Simply making a list is good enough. After you finished your list, read it over. As you read it, be determined to change or avoid those negative consequences. Get some power from the repugnance of these images, and use it to strengthen your resolution.

2. Next put an equally vivid picture in your mind's eye, and this time view all the positive consequences you get from building a stronger will. Like in the first part of the exercise, first examine and contemplate each positive result from having stronger will, then write them down. Just like before, if you feel strong positive emotions while contemplating the benefits that can be yours-enjoyment, recognition, satisfaction, achievement-dwell on the emotions. Then focus on turning your feelings into a powerful desire to develop necessary will.

3. Next view yourself possessing a strong will, thinking and acting as you would if your will was totally developed. Think of the best of possible worlds that you can have with highly developed will. Look at yourself as you can be. Let this ideal model of yourself power your intention to develop that will.
Lucid Dream Stabilization
Lucid Dream Stabilization
Lucid Dream stabilization is required for beginning lucid dreamers to learn. If you don't learn this, you are way more likely to get frustrated by just waking yourself up before you can do much in your lucid dream.

A lot of times, emotions get in your way. You do a reality check, realize that you are dreaming, become lucid and then you just get excited and end up waking up.

Remember, anything you believe in a dream is true. So try not to be afraid and believe you are going to wake up you got all the time in the world to do everything you want to do in your lucid dream.

If you are just starting out in lucid dreaming, remember to try dream stabilization techniques and get the hang of them before you try doing dream control techniques. Yes, the point is to control your dreams, and you just want to jump right in to that. The problem with this is it can just give you more problems! The more control you try to have before you're ready, the less stable your lucid dream will be, and the more likely you are to wake up before you want to.

Basics of Dream Stabilization

Basically, dream stabilization requires physical movement in the dream, or interacting with your dream environment.

Doing things like spinning around, rubbing your hands together, and shaking your head can help. Physical movements also help you ground yourself in the dream, and remembering to move around physically can also calm you down. You can also try just walking around and interacting with the dream environment.

The main point to dream stabilization is making yourself really inhabit the dream. This is not taking control of the dream too soon, but instead, experiencing it for what it is. Sometimes, dream stabilization is easier than other times. Some days you might have a hard time getting your dream to stabilize at all, while other times, it'll be very easy and you can just start taking control right away.

In general, as you get more experienced are you're more confident in your ability to stabilize a dream, you can then get your dreams stabilized faster and more efficiently. The key is to believe in yourself and try doing different methods until you find out what keeps working for you.
What is Sleep Paralysis – Sleep Paralysis and Lucid Dreaming
What is Sleep Paralysis – Sleep Paralysis and Lucid Dreaming
Sleep paralysis is actually just a natural phenomenon that happens every night to all humans as your body defense mechanism to preventing you from acting out your dreams. For example, if you're trying to run or fly, you really do not want to act it out with your physical body. Some people are able to consciously wake up before their bodies do and then they are aware of sleep paralysis as soon as they try to move. Your brain just thinks you're still sleeping while your conscious is awake and aware, so it's certainly a terrifying experience when you can't move. But once you notice how harmless sleep paralysis is, next you want to learn how to turn sleep paralysis into lucid dreams.

If you're fearful during sleep paralysis, naturally you can easily start to experience a nightmarish like environment. But everything is just in your head. Once you learn to become calm and relaxed, the bad experiences will stop.

When you wake up and find yourself in sleep paralysis, don't struggle to wake yourself up. Just relax and use this to create a lucid dream.

If you experience being aware during sleep paralysis, you got a big advantage over other lucid dreamers that don't. This is because you're already aware while your body is asleep! Just keep your body asleep and go back in the dream world and it's lucid dream time. Enjoy!

Being aware in a dream is exactly what lucid dreaming is, and being naturally aware when in sleep paralysis is not such a bad thing since it gives you a shortcut into lucid dreaming. The only challenge you have is overcoming any fear of sleep paralysis.

Once you notice you're awake and aware you're in sleep paralysis, just relax and imagine yourself leaving your body and entering the a dream world that you then imagine. This almost always works. Just feel like your conscious is exiting your body and flying away. First is can be totally dark, but just start to picture an atmospheres or think "MAXIMUM CLARITY NOW," then suddenly you're in a vivid dream world. For example, when I yelled out "MAXIMUM CLARITY NOW," I quickly got a five second sun rise starting a massively vivid lucid dream!
Lucid Dreams and Telekinesis
Lucid Dreams and Telekinesis
Telekinesis is moving objects without touching them. Whether you are using your invisible hands, mind, or yelling out commands, it's called telekinesis. This is one of the fundamental powers that you need to navigate the dream world, along with summoning, teleportation, and flying.

How to do it

Along with the other forms of Dream Control, telekinesis requires you to actually believe in yourself and powers. Not to worry though, there are a bunch of tricks that you can do to lift anything up, like lifting up bad people and putting them in any other location where they can not harm you.

When you pick a method to do telekinesis, think of some of the movies or series that this power is used in. By watching a movie that has someone use telekinesis, you then get "visual proof" that a certain way of doing it will work. X-Men, Harry Potter, The Matrix and Heroes, and Star Wars are some great examples of telekinesis being used in different ways.

Although you don't need to watch these movies to perform telekinesis, though using passive control sure can help. When you do it like you see in the movies, you get an extra boost of confidence that you can succeed, and once you've done it once, you will be able to keep on doing it.

Here's some ways to do this power:

• Imagining rubber ropes attached to an object and your hands.
• Reaching out with your hand, using "the Force."
• Let a Dream Character do it for you.
• Be a fictional character with the power.
• Verbal commands.
• Invisible hands.
• A wand.
• Imagining the object being magnetic and your hands as well.

Possibilities of telekinesis

If you think: "So, I can lift things. This looks like a waste of time!" you're wrong. Telekinesis can be used for many, many things, and it takes just a little bit of imagination to start to see it.

For example, telekinesis can be useful by:

• Levitating prior to flying.
• Element manipulation; like bend the air around the element and manipulate it.
• Lift objects to make them come to or go away from you.
• Create protective barriers.

Telekinesis is very fun! This is a power that never gets boring.

When you first do Telekinesis, you want to start out small. It can be a struggle trying to lift an entire building the first time. Our brains like to first take baby steps. For example, first pick up a rock that is close. Or make some plants move. Once you've done these, you can move on to the bigger things. There's no limit to the power of Telekinesis, and with practice you can end up moving planets.
Staying Lucid When the Lucid Dream Starts
Staying Lucid When the Lucid Dream Starts
One of the biggest problems when starting to have lucid dreams, is waking up when you first becoming lucid in a dream. The reason for this happening is because when you are lucid, you are very close to waking up. So if you make your consciousness jolt, your brain can easily wake up.

To get past this, you need to just practice and work on not getting overexcited when your lucid dream starts. Once you start the lucid dream, then you should be able to go right to dream control. For example, tell yourself, "I'm going to fly!" and just do it. You probably won't need any further help than this.

Some people will need work on "unlearning" the restrictions from the waking life. If you got a spirit guide, it's way easier to do.

Just like with every thing else, it takes practice. You might want to start with small things, like morphing objects. Since objects often morph or change on their own in dreams, you shouldn't have much trouble doing this. By the time you get here, you should have the lucid dream under control enough that you don't get too excited and wake yourself up.
Lucid Dreaming Tips: Using your ‘Chi Energy’ to Ground Yourself
Lucid Dreaming Tips: Using your ‘Chi Energy’ to Ground Yourself
One easy way to stay in a lucid dream might actually be to stand with your feet shoulder width apart and then focus on your hands and 'feel' the energy in the center of your body, as an advanced stabilisation method.

This is a concept of energy, and the principle is that you have energy flowing through your body all the time. Another way of looking at this is that it is your 'intent' or your focus. What you are focusing on. So you then focus on the energy in the center of your body, and try to feel it coming up through the ground through your legs and into your chest, then out through your arms and hands.

Think of it like a loop. The energy comes up through the ground you are standing on, and you then push it back into the ground from your hands. By grounding yourself and focusing like this, and also doing deep breathing exercises, you can focus more and find it easier to relax.
Lucid Dreaming Tips: Spinning a new Dream Scene
Lucid Dreaming Tips: Spinning a new Dream Scene
Spinning while having a lucid dream can do more for you than simply prevent you from waking up too early. It can also let you visit your own created dream scene. Here's how to do it.

1. At bed time, decide on a person, time, and place you want to go visit in your lucid dream. The target person and place can be a real or imaginary, and in any time, past, present, or future.

2. Write down and memorize a target phrase, and as vividly as you can, visualize your self at your target and firmly resolve to make the visit in a dream tonight.
3. It's possible that just from having the intention, you find yourself in a non-lucid dream at your target. But, a more reliable way to get there is to become lucid before getting there, and then seek your goal while lucid. When you're in a lucid dream at the time where the dream is starting to fade and it looks like you're going to wake up, then spin, while repeating your target phrase at the same time, until you are in a vivid dream scene-hopefully your targeted person, time, and place.
