Lucid dreaming techniques should be easy.
You should only need to do a couple of them in an ideal world.
You should be able to become lucid multiple times per week.
So let’s play a game…
Making something as easy as ABC
You know I believe the magic happens in the trance state, but getting into it is the hard part. I’m going to break down exactly how you can get into the trance state following these simple steps.
I thought it would be cool if you thought of it as a game to see how far they can push it. I already do it every single day and it works.
Close your eyes
Turn the lights off
Make sure it’s quiet
What you need to do
Focus on the back of your head where it touches the bed/pillow
Don’t think of anything
Stare into the back of your eyelids
If your mind wanders bring your attention back to the back of your head
Little tip (the refocus technique)
Focus on the back of your head for any length of time and your mind will start to wander, so I’ve been using something I call the refocus technique.
Each time you breathe out refocus your attention back onto the back of your head. Instead of focusing your attention onto it once, you’re now focusing your attention onto it every time you breathe out.
How long should you do it for?
Until you get bored or too tired
Start with what you’re comfortable with and go for longer each time
Don’t have any expectations; don’t expect anything to happen
Just keep focusing your awareness onto the back of your head
Something is happening
Your body might go numb, your body might vibrate, and relaxation will start washing over your body…
What do you do now?
You need to try and go deeper. This is all about letting go and falling into the abyss. It’s actually hard for me to explain and it’s the reason why I tell you it’s important to experiment with your senses.
You need to let go of your body and I’m going to explain how to let go of the muscles. Just imagine you’ve fully tensed your bicep. This is the opposite of letting go.
Now relax it; this is normal.
To let go you have to go further than normal. You’ll know when it starts going numb because you have no control over it. It might take a while, but just keep trying everything you can to let go.
Now you need to do the exact same, but to your mind instead of your muscles. You need to let go your mind.
Imagine the feeling you get when you fall backwards in your sleep. All tension is gone and you just let yourself go. Almost like you know someone will catch you.
When can you do this?
This will take you into the trance state. You can use it before doing the lucid trance technique, but you can also use it for:
WILD / Wake Induced Lucid Dreams / Instant Lucid Dreams
DEILD / Dream-Exit Induced Lucid Dreams / Reentry Lucid Dreams
DILD / Dream Induced Lucid Dreams / Spontaneous Lucid Dreams
Am I the only one who hates stupid acronyms?
How long should you do it for?
Do it every day and work towards 30 minutes each time. Just concentrate on your technique and the magic will come. I promise it’s that simple.
