Back to Dreaming…

I’ve been having some pretty yucky dreams lately..talking to everyone around me it seems like it must be the moon because they’re all having bad dreams as well…

I checked out a little bit more about lucid dreaming – this stuff is so interesting to me! And I was just reading about a new technique of getting your dream self to become aware.

“The Wake Back To Bed Method”

“STEP ONE – Go to bed as normal and allow yourself to sleep for six hours. Set your alarm clock or have another early riser wake you up.

STEP TWO – After six hours, get out of bed and fully wake yourself up. Find something to occupy your brain to make you alert. Read about lucid dreaming if you want to stay focused on the subject. Stay alert for 20-60 minutes. (Hint: you must get out of bed!)

STEP THREE – Go back to bed and relax. If your mind is too alert, practice meditation, listen to a Lucid Dreaming MP3 or do the MILD method. Use your visualization skills and think about your next lucid dream as you fall asleep.”

I am definitely going to try this!

All sorts of dreams

Did you know there are two types of dreams?

1. observer dreams: you are a 3rd party watching the action

2. participant dreams: you are “in” the action

Observer dreams may be your brains way of trying to communicate a message with you.

Participant dreams are different. It is possible to become “aware” that you are inside a dream, and from there realize that you can do anything your imagination can conjure. That awareness is called “lucid dreaming.”

I remember having these dreams as a child, where a I would notice a detail wasn’t correct, and from there would reason that I must be in a dream.

Some people claim to be able to have lucid dreams every night, and it very much a key to the happiness in their lives.

This is something I need to look at a little closer when I have more time…
