Reasons for Lu id Dreaming:
Doing anything you want:
The most obvious and possibly most appering reason for Luau Dreaming, is the any to do anything that you could
possibly imagine. I don' t think I have to delve any deeper into this.
The any to simulate awkward situations in your dream, and practice making it through them. If you' re not good at
tanking to people, yin. can practice being the me of the party, or being the most popular guy around. If you' re
nervous about asking somebody out on a date, yin. could practice it in your dream. Maybe you' got a big
presentation coming up at your job, you' got the idea.
Luau Dreams could be used to stop reccuring dreams/ nightmares. If yin. have a nightmare that yin. keep having
every night, than yin. can use Reality Checks against it. say your Nightmare is you being chased by a giant dog. If
you train yourself to do a Reality Check every time you see a dog in waking me, then Wu w: eventualy do it in your
nightmare when Wu see the dog. once Wu maize you' re dreaming, then Wu can Dream Spin out of the nightmare
into a less scary, mine lucid dream. Then Wu can do whatever Wu Ike.
Basics Of How To Lucid Dream:
Here, I w: explain how to do the DILD (Dream Induced Luau Dream), which is the most simple method of Luau Dreaming. This is the
best starting point for beginners. If Wu want mine friable, but advanced techniques, then go to the forums of Dream Views.
Before getting into Luau Dreaming, you have to be able to remember your dreams every night. Everybody has multiple dreams every
single night. to do this, you have to keep a Dream Journal.
Every night as you' re fang asleep, you should repeat to yourself in your head "E w: wake up after every dream." unli you fan
asleep. If you do this, then you should wake up after each dream, so that you can write them down in a notebook. once you wake
up from a dream, make sure that you don' t move, because that w: make it harder to remember your dream. Just it: there and try to
remember as much as you can from the dream, and then you can turn over and write them down.
Dream Signs are things that show up in a lot of your dreams. After you' re at the point where you' re remembering multiple dreams
every night, and you' got a lot of dreams written down, you should look for these. Read through your dreams that you' written
down. See inthere are any things that happen in most, if not " of your dreams. For example, my Dream Si n is my friend Jain.
Jain shows up in a lot of my dreams. so that means that every time I see Jasmin waking me, I should do a Reality Check (see the
Lucid Dreaming Terms section for an explanation). If you do a Reality Check every time you see your Dream Sign, then eventualy
you should do it in your dream. If that happens, then you' I be maize that you' re dreaming, and become luau.
Stabb g your dream:
once you re aware that you' re dreaming, it' s possible that you might wake up if you' re over excited. once you maize that you' re
dreaming, then you should take a moment to calm down and take a look around. Look dzsdr at your hands, get down on the ground
and smel the grass, grab something and taste it. Do whatever you can to use " of your senses. once you calm down and do
something for " of your senses, your dream should be dearer, and should last longer. vou' re now in a stable Luau Dream, do
whatever you Ike.
Reality Checks That You can Do:
Nose Pinch - Pinch your nose shut, and try to breathe out of it. In waking me you won' t be able to breathe through it. In a dream, you
w: st: be able to breathe through your nose even though it' s pinched shut.
Text Test - Text often changes in dreams. For this main check, you have to look at some text (for instance: A digital dock) and see if
it changes. Ifit doesn' t, then look away and look back at it, and see ifit changes then. Ifit changes, then you' re dreaming.
These next to are less friable then the Nose Pinch and the Text Test:
The Mirror Test - Look into a mirror. During a dream, the image should become distorted. For example, maybe you have the head of a
dog, or you have someone else‘: face.
The Hand Test - Look at your hands. In your dream, you may have extra lingers.
Lucid Dream Terms:
Reality Checking: The act of checking whether or not you are dreaming. These should be done
throughout the day. Even if you know you' re awake, sti do them every time you remember to, or when
you see something strange, or out of place. If doing Reality Checks during waking life becomes a habit,
than eventually they will be done at random during a dream, which will then turn your dream into a lucid
dream. For several Reality Checks that you can do, see the bottom of the page, over on the left.
Dream Spin g: The act of closing your eyes and spin ing in a circle during a Lucid Dream. once you
open your eyes, things will be clearer, and you may be transported from where you were to somewhere
else. This should be done your dream is starting to fade and you feel like you' re going to wake up, so
that you can continue dreaming. It can also be done if you' re in a nightmare, and want to get away from
whatever it is you' re scared of.
Dream Journal: The journal in which you write down all of your dreams
Dream Signs: Things that often show up in your dreams.
