Six Months of learning Lucid Dreaming

Comments 2 Standard

Okay so it has officially been six months of learning lucid dreaming and astral projection. I find it so interesting how this all started from just having one vivid dream. Anyway, I thought this would be good to write about so I can reflect on what I have achieved so far and also to let others know that the art of lucid dreaming is a skill that takes time to learn.

Although my dream recall ability has gotten better over time, it does fluctuate due to stress and running into energy blocks within yourself. I have been consistent with dream journaling and consider it a very important aspect of learning how to lucid dream. I personally believe it would be a mistake not to dream journal.

I had my first lucid experience when I was probably about 18 years old, but I had no idea what lucid dreaming was then. When I actually discovered lucid dreaming and started to practice it took me almost 2.5 months to have my first lucid dream. I’m sure there are people who have gotten quicker results and perhaps some people who have taken much longer. Everyone is different.

I started practicing 11/15/18 and here is a log of my lucid dreams & OOBE’s:

1/25/19 – My first intentional lucid dream

1/27/19 – I had a sequence of very short lucid dreams where I was becoming lucid and quickly losing lucidity. Most of my lucid dreams are short, but these were VERY short. 

2/14/19: I woke up and saw hypnopompic imagery and it felt as though I was going to go straight into a lucid dream, but quickly decided to roll out of my body. I got out but felt so heavy and everything seemed dark. That is when I convinced myself I physically fell out of bed. I then crawled back in bed and then just woke up to realize it was an out of body experience. 

3/11/19: – First time doing a reality check in a lucid dream

3/30/19 – First lucid dream where I experienced flying.

4/27/19: First Lucid dream where I tried telling other dream characters that it was a dream.

5/9/19: First time I turned a nightmare into a lucid dream. I also performed the nose reality check for the first time in this lucid dream. 

I’ve had many more types of experiences throughout these past six months; dreams about lucid dreaming and astral projection, regular dream of having astral projection experiences, lower level lucidity in dreams where I experienced myself floating throughout the dream due to seeing my reflection, experiencing the vibrational stage, partial sleep paralysis, etc.

I’m happy with my results, but I have long way to go. I want to improve my dream recall, increase my rate of lucid dreams and be able to stabilize and have more vivid lucid dreams. This will all take time and that is okay. I am just going to continue dream journaling, doing reality checks and meditating.

I have also been experimenting with various supplements simply out of curiosity. I have no intention as of now to use any of these supplements on a regular basis. This is more for the sake of experimenting to see what kind fo results I get. I have tried Alpha Brain which really helped with dream recall and having a few vivid dreams. I have tried tea with valerian in it and I have gotten lucid from that, although I don’t know if that was simply a coincidence or not though. I’m also experimenting with Choline and 5-HTP. There are more supplements I do want to try, but will try them later.

Aside from dream journaling, reality checks and meditation, I have noticed (clairvoyantly) that getting enough sun exposure and doing cardio can also help with having more lucid dreams.

Anyway, I am just going to keep reporting my experiences and perhaps after another six months I will do a full year report on lucid dreaming & astral projection.

Premonitions

I had an interesting dream this morning. It was the last dream that I could recall. It wasn’t a lucid dream, but it ended up being a premonition. The dream was of me simply seeing a screen and I was on a Skype call with a woman with dark hair. Suddenly, the call got disconnected and then I woke up from the dream. Well, I did not think anything of it, however, once I started my job (teaching English online) I received a call from a woman with long dark hair. Similar to the one in my dream. Well, after a few minutes, the call got disconnected and it immediately reminded me of my dream.

I love working in this space. I have a great affinity for it and I feel as though I am just at the very beginning. It feels similar to when I was first learning clairvoyance. I’m a dreamer, but I always thought of it in a way of someone who just aims for their dreams. I didn’t fully realize that I would get this interested in lucid dreaming and astral projection – but I love it. There is just so much to learn and explore. This is something I am very passionate about and look forward to mastering.

Lately I have been dreaming about lucid dreaming, spirituality and astral projection. In one of my recent dreams it was a dream character that indirectly tipped me off that I was dreaming. He did not just come out and say, “Andrew – you’re dreaming,” but it was the topic of spirituality that caused me to do a reality check in the dream. I then became lucid in that particular dream, however, it doesn’t always work. I’ve had many dreams recently where there are these conversations around dreaming, but I don’t wake up fully in the dream.

I find the different types of dreams very fascinating. Some dreams I feel like I am just watching a movie and others I feel as though I am an active character in some sort of plot. Some dreams are more vivd than others and some dreams I even have some small degree of control. Then of course – the lucid dreams. I’m still working on being able to have them more often and to be able to stabilize them. This is process though. I am on journey and it is a lot of fun 🙂

Are you dreaming?

5 Months of Dream Journaling: Dreaming about Lucid Dreaming

Leave a comment Standard

Okay, so I have been keeping a dream journal for officially five months now. Wow! I am really happy I have been staying committed to this because I went from not remembering my dreams to now remembering numerous dreams each morning. Occasionally I wake up from sleep and don’t remember any of my dreams, but for the most part I am always remembering.

One thing I am beginning to notice is that I am starting to understand my dreams more, not all of them, but some. I can recall a dream and then understand what that dream is about and how it pertains to my waking life. As of lately, I am having conversations with other dream characters about lucid dreaming and astral projection. You would think that if I am having these conversations that I would become lucid after them, but in the past few nights – that has not been the case.

What I am learning is that this is a process; remembering your dreams, having vivid dreams, lucid dreams, having more consistent lucid dreams, sustaining the lucid dreams, etc. I am at a point where I can have lucid dreams, but just not as consistent or as long as I would like them to be. It is going to take time, but I am okay with that. I am enjoying the ride.

It’s fun waking up in the morning and realizing that I am making progress. Sure there are some mornings where I feel like I am stuck or going backwards, but I have realized when that happens it is usually because of stress or I am about to make a breakthrough in my dream space. It is funny because when I have a lucid dream, it is usually when I least expect it. When I am the most frustrated and just feel like I am ready to give up (which I won’t) that is usually when the lucid dream occurs. It is strange, but that has been my experience so far.

I love the inward journey. I believe that is really how you create change. By looking within and validating your truth, the negativity starts to fade away. With lucid dreaming, there is so much to explore. My excitement is through the roof!

Where are you at with your practice these days?

Alpha Brain for Lucid Dreaming: 1 week

Leave a comment Standard

Okay, so I have been taking Alpha Brain for about 1 week now. I have been experimenting with different times and how many pills I take (1-2). My dream recall has been very good and very early this morning was my first vivid dream while taking this supplement.  I have been keeping a dream journal now for almost 5 months and after typing in my journal I have come to realize that this mornings journal entry has been the longest one yet.

It is hard to tell whether or not this is just part of my natural progression of dreaming and dream recall or it is the supplement doing its work. I have a feeling it is both. I’m not sure what other peoples experiences are, but aside from the experiencing good dream recall immediately, it has taken one full week to have a really vivid dream. My vivid dream though was more like a vivid nightmare, which is unusual for me because in the past 5 months I can only recall having like one nightmare. I don’t think it had anything to do with the supplement but more to do with some of the stress I have felt in the past few days.

My nightmare though wasn’t a typical nightmare. It started off normal, then turned into a nightmare and then ended on a positive and surprising note. In the past if I had a nightmare, the whole thing was just bad. So this one was very different. This is also my first dreaming experience in the past 5 months where after I woke up and started writing down the dream, I had an epiphany. I actually understood the dream and I think that is because it was a very full dream and I could recall it mostly from start to finish. Most of my dreams are just very strange and don’t make much sense or at least the meaning isn’t very clear to me. This nightmare / dream was very different in that regard.

I don’t know how many pills i have left, but I will just continue taking them and report back what I notice. I still meditate and do reality checks daily to help to have a higher chance of having a lucid dream, so we shall see…

Alpha Brain for Lucid Dreaming: Day 2

Leave a comment Standard

Okay So it has been over 4.5 months since I have been practicing lucid dreaming & astral projection and it has been a very exciting and frustrating ride. The nights you have great vivid dreams, experience the vibrations or have a lucid dream are great, but then there are those mornings you wake up and have no result except maybe just remembering your dreams. To be honest, just remembering your dreams isn’t all that bad, I guess I just need to manage my expectations right?

Back in February I was thinking about experimenting with a supplement for my dreams and I came across alpha brain. I have heard of it before on Joe rogans podcast but never knew that it could help with lucid dreams. So I went out and bought it. I experimented with it for about two days and did not have a positive experience. I experienced a lot of brain fog the next day I woke up which really bummed me out especially since Alpha Brain is not very cheap.

Anyway, fast forward to April and I have decided to give Alpha brain a second chance. I recall having some sinus issues around the same time I originally tried it, so perhaps it was a fluke.

So, I took just one pill (not the recommended 2) last night around 6PM. The reason I took it so late was because I read a blog about someone who was experiencing lucid dreams when taking this 3-5 hours before going to sleep. I thought I would do the same. Not long after taking the pill I noticed being more alert and having more mental energy. When it was time to go to sleep I did not have any issues, however, I did have a slight problem going back to sleep when waking up in the middle of the night. I did not have any lucid dreams last night, but my dream recall was greatly improved. It’s funny because in one of my dreams I was even talking with a dream character about alpha brain. At one point in one of my dreams I even started doing telekinesis which is something that is common for me. So for this morning I have not experienced any brain fog!

I plan on taking one pill 4-5 hours before going to sleep until I run out. I will write a blog each morning describing my results. So feel free to subscribe to the blog to find out more about my experiences with Alpha Brain.

Flying in a Lucid Dream

Leave a comment Standard

I’ve had dreams in the past where I found myself levitating and floating around, but I don’t recall a dream where I was flying. Just recently though I had a very short lucid dream that involved flying. Let’s dive in, shall we?

Okay so I was asleep but my wife was still up teaching. When she came to bed, she woke me up unintentionally. Once I was awake I had difficulty going back to sleep. I tossed and turned and at some point I finally fell asleep. I recall having a dream where I was in the house that I grew up in. I was in the main living room and it was dark, except for some light coming from a closed door that leads to the kitchen. I knew my father was in there and I could hear him listening to once of my youtube videos. I decided not to enter the room. Suddenly, I find myself at the end of my parents driveway. It is snowing quite heavily and the snow flakes are very big. I thought to myself – is this how dreams begin? In other words I was curious about how I ended up in a different place so quickly. I start to walk down the driveway and I have this thought that maybe I am dreaming, but I doubt it. To my surprise though I realize I am dreaming. Immediately, I start to fly down the driveway with great ease. It is so effortless. While flying I have the thought that I will start to lose consciousness. Fade to black.

It was a very short lucid dream, but I learned two things from this: 1) For someone who is new to lucid dreaming, it may be best to avoid things like flying and telekinesis. For me, these things seem to come natural, but generate too much excitement that it wakes me up so quickly from the lucid dream. 2) The way I became lucid was from questioning how I ended up in a new scene so quickly. So, asking yourself during the day, “how did I get here?” – is a great reality check.

It is exciting to have a lucid dream, but it is frustrating that it doesn’t last so long. I realize though that I am new to this and it will take some time to get grounded in this practice. Once I can remain calm and composed, perhaps then I can have longer lucid dreams.

With that said, are you dreaming?
