Inspirational Quotes about Lucid Dreaming

Imagine flying in spirit form – over faraway lands you have only seen in books or on television. This is possible. Imagine going to heaven and experiencing the place you call home in between incarnations. This is possible. Imagine meeting your spirit guides and having the most wonderful conversations; receiving knowledge about your life and the issues you are now dealing with. This is possible. Imagine seeing and conversing with any relative or friend who has passed on, and laughing as you share old memories. This is possible. Imagine the most beautiful scenery painted in the most brilliant and dynamic colors you have ever seen. This is possible. Imagine listening to angels sing. This, and so much more, is possible if you decide to be conscious for a small part of the eight hours during sleep at night.inspirational quote - end

Inspiring quote

Lucid dreaming differs from ordinary dreaming in that with lucid dreaming, you consciously control your reactions, your actions and the direction of your dream. In your non-lucid dreams you have no conscious control over your reactions, actions or the direction of your dream. In a non-lucid dream you are simply in a reactive state. Take for example, a dream most of us have had, that of being chased. In the dream state, most often you don’t realize what you are really running from. In this state, you become afraid, you keep running until you wake up or simply move to another dream. In the lucid dream state, you recognize that you are dreaming, and you are then able to take control of your reactions and what is occurring in the dream. Here’s what happens during a lucid dream: First, you realize you’re dreaming. Second, you lose all fear, and I mean absolutely all fear that you had in the non-lucid state. Third, you then turn around and ask what is chasing you to tell you what it represents. Fourth, you can continue the dream or move to another subject that you would like to deal with.inspirational quote - end

Inspiring quote

Let me continue by giving you a personal example of a non-lucid dream that became a lucid dream. During a non-lucid dream, I was running away from something. I don’t recall exactly what it was, but I do recall being afraid and running from it in a very cowardly manner. Suddenly, I realized that I was dreaming and that I was in a dream. When this realization occurred, it was like night and day. One second I was running from something I believed to be monster-like, and the next second I lost all fear. I became conscious that it was a dream I was experiencing, and once I “got it,” I simply lost all fear because I knew that there was nothing to fear from a dream. Regardless of how scary the dream might have been, all fear was gone; not because the scenario in the dream changed, but because I knew it to be a dream. When you move from a non-lucid state to a lucid state, the once frightful setting now literally becomes your playground.inspirational quote - end

Inspiring quote

So I went from running away from a monster to losing all fear in about a second. The switch is literally that dramatic. I lost all fear, stopped running and turned around to face what was coming my way. Suddenly, I understood that whatever was coming toward me was still coming at about the same speed, but I had no fear. I now felt that it was going to pass me on my right and so I stuck my right arm out in an effort to stop it. I was going to stop it, and ask it what it represented. I was going to see if it had anything to say to me. But, as soon as I had that thought, whatever was chasing me passed through my arm. I felt the breeze on my arm, but saw nothing. I was really running away from nothing!inspirational quote - end

Inspiring quote

In order to expand on my point about losing all fear, let me quickly share another lucid dream. I was in a non-lucid dream and suddenly I realized that I was dreaming. I became lucid in the dream and found myself standing on a railroad track. I have no conscious recollection of what happened to get me on the tracks, but there I was, on railroad tracks, and as luck would have it, a train was coming toward me at full speed. I was not immediately concerned because the train seemed to be about 15 seconds away from crushing me. Although I was in a dream state and could only react to the dream, I felt that I had more than enough time to step out of the way. At that moment, it felt like a very logical and healthy way to react to this scenario.

All of a sudden at about TC -10 (or Train Crash minus 10 seconds), I had the realization that I was simply dreaming. In a one to two second span, I lost all concern about the train crushing me. In two seconds, I went from the prudent belief that I should step away from the tracks, to losing all fear, saying to myself, “hmmm, this could be a very cool experience. I’ve never been hit by a train before.”inspirational quote - end

Inspiring quote

The steps to learning to lucid dream are basically the same as learning to remember your dreams. Simply replace the meditative intention of remembering your dreams with an intention of becoming lucid or aware in your dream. Tell yourself that the next time you dream, you will ask to see your hand. Use “I want to see my hand” as a mantra before going to bed. Repeat this mantra for five minutes. What this does is switch the control from your unconscious mind, where you are simply reacting to what is occurring in the dream, to your conscious mind where you are giving the instructions to your dream. Sometimes when you become lucid, you find your surroundings either foggy or dark. In such a case, simply ask for clarity. Say to yourself “clarity now” until the environment around you becomes clearer. Keep demanding clarity until your field of vision is as clear as you wish it to be. The shift from the non-lucid state to the lucid state is usually noticeable if not dramatic.inspirational quote - end

Inspiring quote

Another technique you can follow that will assist you in having more lucid dreams is to set your alarm clock for a few hours before waking. When the alarm sounds, turn it off and go to the bathroom or walk around for a couple of minutes, then reset your alarm clock for your usual wake up time (I keep two alarm clocks). Meditate for five minutes and go back to sleep. This might seem like a pain in the neck to do, but if you’re having trouble achieving the lucid dream state, this will put you in a lighter dream state, and help you to achieve your goal of remembering your dreams and having lucid dreams.inspirational quote - end
