Hey, hey! So, you already knew what was coming, right? Here is the second part of this guide (you can check the first part here in case you missed it), for you to have a solid foundation in how to Lucid Dream. So, let’s go for it! Today you will be able to add more to your “dreaming roster” and get to use them tonight. I want to share doing reality checks is always a must to make the dream longer. I can have many lucid dreams, but like everybody, I may have had so-so lucid dreams and non-lucid dreams. Last night I had one, took off flying to make it stable (it was already, but I always do it as advice on prior’s post.) Upon reaching a big building, wanted to go to a bigger one and then, consider what to do. I woke up on my way there but never did a reality check even though the dream was good quality. It was also time to wake up, so this also plays a part (I naturally wake up most of the times), but if it had been earlier, I would have lost a longer lucid due to not anchoring to it. No problem, it will happen, tons of times, but the more used you are to get to always check your dreams, even if you know you are in a one!
You can Lucid Dream at will.
This is very true, for everybody (If you have schizophrenia or a psychological condition that you confuse reality with dreams, consult with your neurologist/psychiatrist if you should get to lucid dream. Last week I shared the commonly known technique WILD, summarized to make it easier. There is also the DEILD technique that consists of starting to do the WILD method right after waking up from a dream. This one is tricky, and it will require you the use of mantras. To do it, you cannot move a muscle when you wake up, not even open your eyes. You can manage with DEILD by using mantras; it is almost the only way. You need to program your mind not even to open your eyes when you wake up from a dream. I honestly prefer to use mantras for other things, such as, “My lucid dreams are long and clear” or others where I can enhance or increase the amounts of lucids.
So, I came up with an enhanced version of the DEILD technique; it will require a lucid dream, any lucid dream as I shared last week. While the DEILD technique has a substantial fail ratio for most, L-DEILD has a 100% success ratio. L-DEILD stands for (Lucid-Dream Exit Induced Lucid Dream). Yes, it requires a lucid dream to execute it. I said it was an enhanced version, not the magic solution! But it is a very newbie friendly ability, especially because at the beginning, most people get to have short and low-quality lucid dreams. However, this technique only needs a lucid dream. Even those really low and horrible quality tiny lucid dreams may work to execute L-DEILD. Maybe, you look at your hands, and as you feel “I am dreaming”, you see the dream collapse, and an imminent waking up… does it sound familiar? Well, even in lucids like these, you can L-DEILD it into a full and nice long lucid dream, and this is how it goes:
- So, you know you are dreaming right now. You are in a lucid dream (does not matter dream content), remind yourself or repeat mentally “I stay still” and close your (dream) eyes. Keep them shut, regardless of what happens, or you feel. You can also visualize the next dream you want to be at.
- You feel your body in bed, possibly vibrating. And pretty much in the time of a split second, you will find yourself back in the dream, almost with everything as it was before.
- It is impressive because you are dreaming and suddenly, you are back in bed and even more suddenly, you are back dreaming, entirely lucid!
Yes, it is that simple, the reason is that this technique makes your brain think you are still sleeping (you haven’t move anything at all physically), so it forms another dream right away. Somehow, you are pushing your brain here, and so it copies the prior dream. Your brain will “render” pretty much the same dream, with little to no changes as shared last week.
Doing a “/hop” is fantastic. You exit your lucid and re-enter it. Which is a term from the early internet of “refreshing” a chat window (leave-&-re-enter the channel you typed /hop, and it is like a bounce, you are out of the channel for a tenth of a second. And this is most likely the same, you are the tenth of a second in bed, and right away, back in a dream.
Since I learned it (in an actual dream), it worked for me every time, so it did for others who tried this technique when I shared it. For some unknown reason, it is common to have one change; the weather sometimes changes when you re-enter the very same dream. But other than that, everything else is pretty much the same, great for people doing a lucid dreaming challenge for example (unless it has to do with the weather and you had the needed one before! Oopsy!) But except particular cases, it is an improvement and not a backfire.
False awakenings are more deceiving than mirages.
You may find yourself back in your room; nothing happens… everything is still. Maybe you opened your eyes already. No vibrations, no nothing. Do a reality check, because of both DEILD and L-DEILD (making WILD count three), can easily trigger a false awakening. These are very pesky, and you know why out from the prior blog post. You might have forgotten in the prior lucid to keep focused, or maybe, you are in a dream! The second is the most likely result. Perhaps you are ported, back in bed, but you are about to have a long lucid from the beginning, so you have plenty of “dream time” to do so! So, it works great, because the worse that can usually happen, is “getting lost,” and you need to do a reality check to whether check you are awake or asleep (or even in the astral.)
And before saying goodbyes for this one, I wanted to share with you to ensure to do plenty of reality checks after you attempt to chain dreams or use any of these techniques: WILD, DEILD, L-DEILD. Do them in your dreams to make them stable, but also make sure to do them every time you find yourself in bed, whether you wanted to wake up or to prolong the dream. False awakenings also occur after one of these dreams often; your mind tricks you with a non-lucid dream where you dream you write your whole lucid out, to awaken to realize it was a dream, with the lucid part completely wiped. You will buy you wrote it down, and you will let go of it. If you have a false awakening even when trying to wake up, keep waking yourself up, doing a reality check every time you wake up or false-wake up. If you woke up for real, wrote the dream down asap, and get back to bed right away, do not waste additional time and beware with the lights (voice recorder with a monochrome screen ideal here.) If you keep false-awakening, wake yourself up as I shared in the prior entry.
Your mind is “quite strained” (but in a good way, because it still rests fine during sleep), and maybe even unsure where you are. Go back to bed and attempt the WILD technique above again. It will work with much more ease, and you can get lucid dream easily or even astral project. Also, you will have dramatically more chances to trigger DILDs (turning lucid in the dream out of the blue or a reality check) when you are not attempting other techniques. If for some reason you wanted to stop the lucid dreaming for the night, but you become lucid, go ahead, find a bed and go to sleep, in the lucid dream. Visualize just an empty void and relaxation (this can trigger an astral projection though). Or trying to get very involved in the dream, you will eventually lose lucidity. Maybe you can go to some nice beach and enjoy the sun, or go to space and float there till you awake. In last entry, there are some “forceful” ways to wake yourself up.
And that’s it! Good for this double.entry. Now, you have an easy and summarize way in how to lucid dream. Even, just for the fact you have read the whole thing, it gets in your subconscious, and so it blends in future dreams, reading a little bit the chances to lucid dream more. So, even reading this will play in your favor. If you still wanted to do the Lucid Dreaming video course, you can check it out clicking here or the image below:
So, as I shared, we are going to leave behind the lucid dreaming topic for a bit. Keep sending suggestions and ideas for blog entries, as I enjoy loads sharing. Next week, we will be talking about empathy and global empathy. We already have a blog post about empathy and a lot of you, have related and I loved that. So I am going to sharing a little more about empathy. See you next Wednesday!
Much Love & Light.
Lots of blessings and abundance your way!
