In today’s interview you’re going to learn about a technique that has a 100% success rate, although you have to be lucid first.
From my own experience of trying it I definitely agree, but I’ve only done it because I wanted to go back into the dream. In the interview you’ll learn about it in much more detail by someone who has obviously studied it and picked up lots of tricks along the way.
You’ll also here about something the first two guests and I have experienced when life seems to get hectic and you don’t have much time on your hands.
Let’s get started and I hope you enjoy.
Today we have Rev. Fernando Albert with us to share his awesome experiences. He’s a psychic medium and healer. You can find him at www.fernandoalbertmedium.com. He also has an amazing dream journal on Dream Views that you need to check out.
Hey Fernando, what’s your favorite thing about lucid dreaming if you can choose one?
I love going to Space. It is what fascinates me the most. Even if it’s a dream version of it, I am always amazed with what my mind has to show me.
Can you tell us about any struggles you’ve had since you got started?
I am a natural lucid dreamer and I have always had a decent degree of easily inducing my lucid dreams since I was a child. My biggest struggle is when real life got so busy that I could not maintain a decent sleep schedule and/or I would feel lazy to write down dreams when I woke up in the middle of the night. This affected my lucidity and recall greatly when it happened.
What do you think is the most important thing you’ve learned from your time in the dream world?
One thing I learned is how limiting physical life is, how easy everything is in the dream plane and the feeling of joy, freedom and happiness. But the most important thing it was possibly about my Mediumship gift. When a Spirit in a dream told me my gift was real and I needed to work on it on real life (and it was a Spirit, not a dream character, I can identify them by the energy I feel in the dream, long story)
Do you take anything from your lucid dreams and apply it to real life?
Yes, my Mediumship gift. After I was told I could do this work in real life and how to do it, I started working to it and developing.
What’s the best lucid dream you’ve ever had?
(Jamie: I can’t put it into words, but you’ve got to have a read)
Do you have a favorite technique and why do you like it so much?
I really love MILD, as I enhanced it to the next level, but my favorite technique is my signature technique L-DEILD. It stands for (Lucid-Dream Exit Induced Lucid Dream). This is an enhancement from the well know DEILD technique.
Why do I like it so much? Well, it is the perfect solution to turn a bad lucid dream into something amazing, to save a dream and to chain lucid dreams. Many times, especially newbies manage to induce a lucid dream, and then, they feel the dream fading and waking up. This is when you apply L-DEILD.
You tell yourself that you will not move in bed and that you will enter the same dream, fully lucid. I have dreams were I even spawned in the exact same place. You will feel your body in bed, most likely with vibrations and paralyzed, and in matter of seconds, you will enter the next dream. This technique has a 100% success. I did not over a dozen times as well as other oneironauts. The only problem, it requires a lucid dream to do so and you need to remember it. But you do not need to be very advanced for this technique to work.
DEILD requires mantras to remember doing it, since you are coming from a non-conscious dream is easier to ruin the technique, but with L-DEILD, you are always conscious (lucid-waking up-lucid) so it is much easier to remember. I do not recommend chaining more than four short dreams or more than two long dreams since it might fell up the dream memory fast.
Here is an example of the dream rewind technique which is another fantastic one you should try.
Do you have an ultimate lucid dream you’d like to have?
I’ve seen a lot, you can find it going to my dream journal and then, the lucid category. An entire night with lucidity and entire recall is my goal.
What is the strangest land you’ve even wandered through in a lucid dream?
Do you have any words of encouragement for all of us?
Be patient, positive and set reasonable goals for your skills. Dream is fun, so it should not bring stress to you. The more positive and excited you are, the easier it will get.
Great answers, Fernando. There are lots of amazing things we can pick up from your experiences and I’m sure it will encourage anyone who hasn’t started yet to start practicing lucid dreaming.
