Check out this short video on the most used and practiced tips.
These are the top 9 tricks based on the experiences of so many practitioners.
I’ve checked 2 books, 2 online digital lucid dreaming products (one was hard to use, the other one was rather useful) and around 25 websites which took me about 45 hours of research over a 2 months period of time.
You could do the same, or save some time and just try them straight away : )
I know it sounds unbelievable, but these are the very best lucid dreaming tips and techniques that work for everyone after starting to practice them on a daily basis.
Watch the video or read it’s script below and you will know in less than 10 minutes how to have lucid dreams fast. In my opinion this is not only the most common but also the most easy ways to lucid dream as well.
Lucid dreaming tips 1: Sleep enough
A well-rested conscious mind is much more likely to become awake and alert in a dream. Go to bed early. Get plenty of sleep.
Tip 2: Dream Journal
Write as much of your night’s dreams as you can recall, including details.
Tip 3: Gentle Waking
Wake slowly and gently. Don’t rush out of bed to begin your day with your mind jumping to your concerns and to-do list. Don’t move a muscle and don’t open your eyes as soon as you realize you are waking, wait a little.
Tip 4: Reality Check
Throughout your day at random intervals ask yourself sincerely: “Am I dreaming right now?”
Tip 5: Just watch, don’t do much
Before you fall asleep focus and decide that you will be patient and slow with your reactions while you are dreaming. If there is a dangerous situation in your dream its probably still the best to act quickly, because at the beginning you won’t be sure if its a dream or if its reality.
But to become aware that you are dreaming and to have a great lucid experience, it can help if during your dream (and also when awake – just to get in the habit of thinking this way) you pay attention to details. Investigate what you are experiencing before reacting automatically. The way it can help you in your quest is lets say for example you are sleeping and dreaming something, which you don’t know yet that its a dream. Lets say you find yourself driving a car and you can see that there is a dragon sitting next to you. If you don’t use your critical thinking, than your dream will go on maybe randomly.
However if you keep checking if what you see is actually possible or not, you can notice that it’s unreal, and that’s a good opportunity to assume that you are dreaming. When you are there, don’t act suddenly, just acknowledge that finally you are having a lucid dream with this awesome dragon. From there you can slowly take control of how the rest of your dream unfolds. I suggest become friends with the dragon, they are quite rare after all 🙂 .
Tip 6: Pinch test
The good old fashioned “pinch test”. If you are unsure that you are dreaming or not give yourself a pinch. If you are dreaming you won’t be able to feel this, so then you will know that you are dreaming.
Tip 7: Notice the signs of a dream
A lot of your ordinary dreams will have objects or people in them that could act as a clue to you waking up in your dreams.
Tip 8: Opening the doors
Every time you open a door do a reality check. – Try to push your hand through the solid door and question whether you are dreaming.
Tip 9: Falling asleep consciously
Each time while you are falling asleep repeat this: “I will be aware that I’m dreaming” . Each night as you fall asleep repeat to yourself: “I will know I’m dreaming” or a similar phrase until you drift out of consciousness.
