Wake-Induced Lucid Dream

in Dream

Lucid dreams have been used for centuries by people all around the world to release stress and have a more positive sleeping experience. One of the easiest ways to lucid dream is to have a WILD or wake induced lucid dream. A wake induced lucid dream is when you wake right before REM sleep state and regain some consciousness before entering REM. This type of lucid dream is extremely easy to accomplish. This type of lucid dreaming is extremely popular for people who are newer to the lucid dream concept.

Wake Induced Lucid Dreaming can be accomplished by setting an alarm roughly 5 hours into your sleep state. Once the alarm goes off (try using a subtle alarm rather then an annoying one) try to stay as relaxed as possible. Gaining too much consciousness during this time can cause the WILD to fail. Simply turn off the alarm and go back to a relaxed state. At first you when you close your eyes your mind will want to get sucked back into sleep but you must fight this urge and try to continue to tell your self you are dreaming.

Once your body and mind relaxes you will start to see colors. Do not try to control these colors or form them in any way. As you fall deeper into the relaxed state these colors will start to form objects. This is getting closer to dream state. Once you are fully in dream state you can start to control the dream by having ideas. These ideas will form and play in your mind. You'll know when you have reached dream state when you can use all your senses in the dream world i.e. sight, sound, taste, touch, smell.

Having a lucid dream to play out your minds fantasy can release a good amount of stress in your life. Many people who suffer from too much stress find this exercise to be very full filling. While the dream does come to an end it's still better to escape for a few hours then to live your whole life (sleep included) in stress.
