My newest obsession is Lucid Dreaming. I’m currently taking a course on the subject. I’m about half way through it, and it’s been pretty interesting so far.
For the longest time, I swore I didn’t dream at all. I could just never remember a single bit of any of my dreams ever. I also take several medications. So, I figured that may have something to do with it. A while back, I severely messed up my medications and didn’t take them for a bit. When I restarted them, I actually started to remember my dreams again. Not that I recommend anyone ever doing what I did, but I found that to be very interesting.
Recently, I was obsessed with trying to remember my dreams, because I wanted to be able to communicate with spirits in my sleep. That led me to needing to have better control over my dreams, which brought me to learning how to lucid dream.
So far, I’ve learned that I should wear an eye mask to help me to remember my dreams when I wake up. Apparently, it blocks out all visuals so that you can focus more on recalling your dreams. When you wake up, you should ask yourself “What did I dream about?”.
I also learned that it’s very important to keep a dream journal. Even if you can’t remember anything, write that down so you have an entry for that day. It’s also good to know your mood before sleep, during your dreams, and when you wake up. Keep track of other things too. You may want to write down any supplements or medications you may have taken.
I just finished the part that goes over a few techniques to fall asleep, and I am getting into different ways to control my dreams. So far, I’ve recorded three nights of dreams.
I have more to learn in my lesson, but I think I have a good start.
