Psychophysiologist Dr. Stephen LaBerge has become the pioneer in the subject.
He invented one of the most popular lucid dreaming techniques and led many scientific studies.
His work has helped researchers discover therapeutic benefits of lucid dreaming, which may be useful in treating conditions like PTSD, recurring nightmares, and anxiety.
They train your mind to pay attention to your own consciousness. They’re also designed to help you regain or maintain consciousness as you enter REM sleep.
Reality checking is a form of mental training. It increases metacognition by training your mind to notice your own awareness.
Enhance your metacognition by doing reality tests while you’re awake.
Try following these steps:
Set an alarm every two or three hours to remind yourself to do a reality check.
Common reality checks that people use to lucid dream:
Choose one reality check and do it multiple times a day. This trains your mind to repeat the reality checks while dreaming, which can induce lucid dreaming.
Wake back to bed (WBTB) involves entering REM sleep while you’re still conscious.
When you go back to sleep, you’ll be more likely to lucid dream.
While you’re awake, choose any activity that requires full alertness.
Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreams (MILD), created by LaBerge, was one of the first methods that used scientific research to bring on lucid dreams.
It’s based on a behavior called prospective memory, which involves setting an intention to do something later.
In MILD, you make the intention to remember that you’re dreaming.
Practice MILD after waking up in the middle of a dream. It’ll be fresher in your mind.
To combine WBTB with MILD, set an alarm to wake up in five hours. While you’re awake, practice MILD.
A dream journal, or dream diary, is a popular method for initiating lucid dreaming.
When you record your dreams, you’re forced to remember what happens during each one. It helps you recognize dreamsigns and enhances awareness of your dreams.
Log your dreams right when you wake up, and remember to read your dream journal often.
Wake-Initiated Lucid Dream (WILD) occurs when you directly enter a dream from waking life.
WILD helps your mind stay conscious while your body goes to sleep.
Basically, you lay down and relax until you experience a hypnagogic hallucination, or a hallucination that occurs when you’re just about to fall asleep.
WILD is simple, but it’s difficult to learn. Practicing other lucid dreaming techniques will increase your chances of WILD.
