Dreams

Dreams have been responsible for some major creative and scientific discoveries in the course of human history.

No longer dismissed by psychologists as random neuron firings or meaningless fantasies, dreams are now considered an ongoing thought process that just happens to occur while we are asleep.

Lucid Dreams

Lucid dreams are when you know that you’re dreaming while you’re asleep.

You’re aware that the events flashing through your brain aren’t really happening. But the dream feels vivid and real. You may even be able to control how the action unfolds, as if you’re directing a movie in your sleep.

Studies suggest that about half of people may have had at least one lucid dream.

Asleep you can experience many hours whilst only a few waking moments have passed. This is why dreams are an ideal platform for training.

Reality Checking

Reality Checking

This is when you pause at different times of the day to see whether you’re dreaming.

You can try to do something impossible, like push your finger through your palm or inhale through a closed mouth. Or you can do something that's usually hard to do in a dream, like read a page in a book.

Dream Diary

Dream Diary

When you write down your dreams, you’re forced to remember what happens during each dream. It’s said to help you recognize dreamsigns and enhance awareness of your dreams.

Log your dreams as soon as you wake up. It’s also recommended to read your dream journal often.

Mnemonic induction of lucid dreams (MILD)

Mnemonic induction of lucid dreams (MILD)

To use the MILD technique:

  1. As you fall asleep, think of a recent dream.
  2. Identify a “dreamsign,” or something that’s irregular or strange in the dream. An example is the ability to fly.
  3. Think about returning to the dream. Acknowledge that the dreamsign only happens when you dream.
  4. Tell yourself, "The next time I dream, I want to remember that I am dreaming." Recite the phrase in your head.

Benefits of Lucid Dreams

Benefits of Lucid Dreams

  • Less anxiety. When you’re aware that you’re in a dream, you can shape the story and the ending. That might serve as therapy for people who have nightmares, teaching them how to control their dreams.
  • Better motor skills. Visualizing physical movements in lucid dream can increase the actual ability to do them.
  • Improved problem-solving. Lucid dreams can help people solve problems that deal with creativity.
  • More creativity. Some people taking part in lucid dream studies were able to come up with new ideas or insights, sometimes with the help of characters in their dreams.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
