Techniques to achieve a lucid dream.

  Techniques to achieve a lucid dream. 


There are a lot of techniques to achieve a lucid dream that might help you if performed correctly.

This technique is based on rality checks. Everytime somethig looks strange, do a reality check. It's just about getting used on noticing strange things happening in your dream. I put some reality checks in the previous post. Those are the most useful RC (like looking at your hands, watch the clock, or writes..etc.).


This technique has been studied a lot in the united kingdom, and can produce at least 4 lucid dreams a week. It's one of the most modern techniques. It has been created by Daniel Love.
Is to calibrate your sleep cycle in order to increase the chances of wakefulness during the last part. You need to wake up 90 minutes earlier than normal wake-up time until the sleep cycle is adjusted on the new conditions. At this point, alternating the old and the new conditions of alarm. On days with normal wake-up time, the alert status will be increased thus making the lucid dream more likely.


This technique has this name because the dreamer can enter a dream directly from the waking state without any loss of consciousness. This is made possible by relaxing your body completely but keeping the mind alert and focused on it. Lucid dreaming can be achieved through various stages: you can feel the shock through your body be prey to a particular sleep paralysis (sometimes terrifying), witness the materialization of particular Hypnagogic images in front of your eyes (closed), and then find himself in a dream then moving from "spectator" to "actor" of the scene.


It's one of the most used techniques and is simply going to bed with the intention to recognize in the dream of unusual situations or impossible to occur in real life. This technique is very simple and immediate to be applied but not very effective if applied alone: usually is used in combination with one of the other to obtain a synergistic effect.


This technique experiences an increase of 62% of lucid dreams. The technique is to go to sleep and wake up about 5/6 hours, stay awake for an hour focusing your thoughts on lucid dreaming (simply by thinking or reading a good book on the subject) and then go back to bed, trying to make the MILD.

This procedure greatly increases the chances of getting a lucid dream. This is due to the fact that the phases of REM sleep (those in which one dreams) with prolonged stretch of the night. More REM sleep is longer, the probability of acquiring rise lucidity within it.

Lucid Dreaming 

The most widely-read guide to lucid dream

Have you ever heard of lucid dreaming ? Lucid dreaming, word invented by the psychiatrist and writer Frederik van Eeden, indicates a dream where you are conscious of dreaming. thank to this consciousness, the dreamer can do whatever he wants in his dream and modify to his liking his own dream.

There are a lot of benefits in lucid dreaming. Some of them are the problem solving, development of the creativity, enforcement of self-esteem, becoming able to fight fears and inibitions, and the achievement of a sense of freedom and harmony in life.

Being able to lucid dream requires, first of all, being able to remember the dreams, and that's why you should keep near your bed a “dream journal”. Everytime you wake up write every particular thing that you remember from your dream. That will help you to learn the difference between the reality and the dream, and with practice you will be able to search,in your dreams, signs that might help you recognize that you're not awake. Those signs are called reality checks.

Let's now see some of the reality checks:

Reality checks are really important to have a lucid dream, that's why you should increase the number of attempts during the day. It's useless to repeat reality checks without thinking over an it is also repeating mechanically the same check over and over. Let's see some examples:
  • To read: a good check is to read something, look away, and then read back. In dreams world, when you look away, the words change.
  • To breath: if you can breath with blocked nose, or under water you're in a dream.
  • Watching the clock: it's the same as reading. If you watch the clock, look away, and then watch back the clock, the numbers change(this works more on digital watches).
  • To jump: in dreams there's no gravity, so if you jump, you take off or remain suspended in mid-air.
  • Watch yourself in the mirror: often in dreams your reflection in the mirror is distorted or replaced with something else, or even may not appear. Sometimes the mirror is very dirty and doesn't reflect at all.
  • Turn off /on the lights: If in a dream you try to turn off the light, even by force (destroying the source), the light doesn't turn off. Sometimes it can happen that you get in a dark room. Often trying to press the switch to turn it on nothing happens.
