Have you ever ‘woken up’ while dreaming? Would you like to learn how to train yourself to consciously experience your dreams? Did you know you can induce lucid dreaming to help you explore new realms of your imagination?
The dream world is a fascinating place where the dreamer is taken on thought-provoking journeys through the subconscious mind. Your dreams have the power to illuminate the events that take place in your life and answer the questions that you ponder. At some time or another, everyone experiences enlightenment through a dream; brand new ideas or solutions to problems can appear unexpectedly within a dream.
In most cases, people have no control over what they experience in the dream world. Although we spend approximately two hours dreaming each night, most people never learn how to manipulate their dreams according to what they would like to experience. Instead, their dreams are a mishmash of experiences from the day, passing thoughts, and unconscious mental urges. Although these patchwork sagas can serve to provide valuable insights, a lot of what a person experiences while dreaming is no more than mental clutter.
If you’ve ever had a lucid dream, you’ll know that your dreams can actually be controlled to a certain extent. In a spontaneous lucid dream, a person gains consciousness, realizing that what he or she is experiencing isn’t real. They can watch a scene within their dreamscape with a certain amount of detachment, instead of feeling the emotional salience of what is going on. Most people will find that their first experiences of lucid dreaming are pleasant; the brain’s reward system kicks in when the conscious mind is active, and the dream may shift to be pleasurable.
Lucid dreams can occur spontaneously, but you can also induce lucid dreaming. As general awareness of this phenomenon grows, more and more people are learning how to experience lucid dreams. There is now an entire community of people from all over the world who are learning and growing as people through their lucid dreams. People are able to share the strategies they use and find to be successful in order to enable lucid dreaming. In addition, there is an abundance of learning materials available to those who would like to learn how to induce lucid dreaming.

If you would like to experience lucid dreaming, there are certain things you can do in order to prepare yourself. The first thing you can do is learn more about lucid dreaming; that is, in order to have this experience you need to have some kind of general knowledge of how lucid dreaming works, what you might experience in a lucid dream, and how to prepare your mind for lucid dreaming. Through education and awareness, you can effectively understand that lucid dreaming is perfectly safe and 100% natural.
Here are some tips for anyone looking to induce lucid dreaming:
- Record your dreams. If you have little to no memories of what you experience as you travel through the dream world each and every night, you need to start tuning in to what’s going on in your subconscious mind. You can train yourself to start remembering what’s going on in your dreams by keeping a dream journal. Each time you wake up, you can record the feelings, sensations, or events that you remember.
- Have a “fake” dream. Close your eyes, and imagine that you are dreaming. By simulating an experience that you might have in the dream world, you can connect both your subconscious and your conscious mind.
- Do a reality check. You can investigate whether or not you are dreaming by “checking” what’s real. There are certain characteristics of lucid dreams you can pay attention to. For instance, it’s difficult to change the lighting in a lucid dream, so flipping a light switch will generally have no effect.
If you would like to open the door to the higher awareness made possible through lucid dreaming, all you need to do is take some time to learn more about how to develop this ability. You can easily learn how to induce lucid dreaming by interacting with the learning materials available to you. The first step towards gaining the ability to control what’s happening in your dreams is through self-education.
