Lucid Dreaming

By Joydeb Mandal and Uppu Sai Teja

WHAT IS LUCID DREAMING?

  • A lucid dream is any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming.

  • Even though the term “lucid” means clear, lucid dreaming is more than just having a clear dream. To have a lucid dream you must know that it’s a dream while you’re dreaming.

  • Lucid dreaming is awareness that you are dreaming.

  • This awareness can range from very faint recognition of the fact to something as momentous as a broadening of awareness beyond what has ever been experienced even in waking life.

What you can Experience??

  • Lucid Dreaming is the scientifically proven ability to become conscious while dreaming – to “wake up” and take active control of your dreams.

  • In this heightened mental state you can:

  • Explore your dream world with total clarity, where everything you see, hear, touch, taste and smell can be as authentic as reality.

  • Fulfil any fantasy like flying, base jumping, time traveling, free falling, meeting aliens, and visiting other worlds.

  • Overcome personal issues like fears, phobias, anxieties, nightmares, past traumas and recurring dreams.

  • Tap into your creative genius by creating music, seeking artistic imagery and conversing with your dreaming inner self.

Lucid Dreaming Machines

  • Ever since lucid dreaming entered the public eye in the 1980s, there have been many attempts to create the ultimate lucid dream machine.

  • The idea is to make lucid dreaming as easy as possible – so that anyone can do it at will.

  • The most popular type of lucid dreaming device is an eye mask which emits visual and audio cues to the would-be lucid dreamer while they are asleep.

  • Often this means you see flashing lights in your dreamscape, which remind you that you are dreaming. Some offer audio cues as well.

The NovaDreamer

  • The NovaDreamer lucid dream mask works by detecting Rapid Eye Movement (REM) while you are asleep and dreaming.

  • The mask then flashes a series of lights through your closed eyelids; a stimulus which becomes incorporated into your dream.

The RemDreamer

  • It is similar in design and function to NovaDreamer.

  • Like most lucid dreaming devices, it uses infra-red sensors to detect when you are in REM sleep.

  • It then produces sound and light cues which are incorporated into your dream and help you become lucid.

  • You may interpret these dream signs as sunlight, camera flashes, car headlights or many other types of stimulus.

The RemeeDreamer

  • Remee is a sleep mask designed to help increase the frequency of your Lucid Dreams

  • Using low profile electronics hidden in a comfortable sleep mask, Remee supplies customizable light patterns that your dreaming mind can recognize, allowing you to take control.

  • Remee’s six LEDs serve as your touchstone to the waking world
    You can personalize your dream signal to create a combination of pattern, timing, and brightness that is unique to your sleep style.

Precautions

  • If you lucid dream, remember to make it a great experience, and do not be disappointed when you wake up.

  • Remember if you get very excited during your lucid dream, it might cause you to wake up suddenly. At this point, focus on your dream, rub your hands, or spin around and concentrate.

Conclusion

  • As most serious lucid dreamers will agree: a sleep mask is an important lucidity aid to have handy in your bedroom.

  • Lucid dreaming helps us improve many things, such as improving problem solving skills, improving creativity, facing our fears, improving confidence and learning new skills.
