By now we’ve taken a good practical look at lucid dreaming we should also have at least 2 weeks of dream journaling done. Now it’s time to put this into practice.
I have outlined a table below, which illustrates how best to use the methods practically. This is just a guide but try to take the process on board as you would any serious activity and you can expect as serious an outcome in your dreaming skills.
|Weeks 1 -2||Skills||Comment|
|Practice during day or last thing at night||Reality Checking|
|Mostly familiarising oneself with what lucid dreaming is all about and working on dream recall is all that is needed here.|
There is no rush with this or any section, move on when you’re ready.
|Practice last thing at night, less during the day||Autosuggestion|
|This section is about getting used to using proper induction techniques so it is important to get off on the right foot.|
Be enthusiastic, intend to have that experience, want it.
It is all too easy to become unmotivated at bed time but don’t give in to this temptation.
Enjoy your adventure!
|Practice at night only|
Can WBTB after 3 regular night’s sleep
|You may have hit a lucid dream by now, so we are looking to start working on some basic control skill at this stage if you have.|
If not yet lucid, this is what you are waiting for, this is where most people will have their first experience so persist and you will achieve, have fun!
