Is using binaural beats for lucid dreaming safe? Are there any side effects of listening to brainwave entrainment audios while sleeping? I will be answering all these questions in this post from the knowledge I have gained with my experience as a lucid dreamer all these years.
I have made a post on the possible side effects of binaural beats earlier where I have mentioned how binaural beats have had some undesirable effects on me, but here I want to give you some very important reasons for not using these audios especially for the purpose of becoming a conscious dreamer.
There are so many products and audios available these days where they tell you that the brainwave frequency of lucid dreams is yadda, yadda, yadda and you can simply have lucid dreams by listening to those tracks while sleeping.
I like to speak from my heart and being someone who has been lucid dreaming as well as helping others with the same for years, it becomes utterly important for me to inform people that all those brainwave entrainment audios are not good for you. Continue reading
In this lucid dream mask review, I am going to tell you about the one sleep mask that I use which is the best one available in the stores right now according to me.
See, when I was a beginner lucid dreamer, I believed in many crappy products that claimed to induce lucid dreams with the help of REM detection, you know what I am talking about right?
Such devices may have worked for people, but I prefer natural ways, I don’t want my body to be uncomfortable in any way while sleeping and I will never suggest you messing up your natural sleep cycles because your mind states depend on it.
What I want people to understand is that lucid dreaming is all about practice and knowing your mind better, especially by becoming more conscious in the waking life.
However, a sound sleep matters a lot for lucid dreaming which requires that you sleep in complete darkness. No matter how hard you try a little light is always present in the room, that’s why sleep masks are very helpful not only for a sound sleep but also for having vivid dreams that conscious dreamers always desire.
Trust me, I can promote any lucid dream mask here, but to be honest, all you need is a good regular sleep mask and I am going to tell you about the one that I use. Continue reading
Mastering the art of lucid dreaming is the tagline of Andrew Holecek’s new program and in this Dream Sculpting review, I will be giving you a detailed information and my honest opinion about this product so that you could decide if it is going to fulfill your purpose or not.
This is the only lucid dreaming online course in which I found this skill being taught from the perspective of spiritual development and self-growth rather than for just enjoying the virtual world.
Obviously, as a beginner you may be having a plethora of stuff to do in your dream world, which you will surely be able to learn using this program, but once you have reached to a place where you want to achieve something higher than just surface level fantasies, you start seeing lucid dreaming from a totally different angle.
That is what happened to me, I have been lucid dreaming from a long time but I always wanted to use this skill to know more about my inner mind, I wanted to communicate with my inner being and get spiritual insights in my dreams.
I must say, dream sculpting program was a game changer for me, it took my lucid dreaming skills to a different level. That does not mean that it is not meant for beginners, some of my readers have reported great success with this program in getting their first few vivid lucid dreaming experiences. Continue reading
If you are willing to induce lucid dreams based on how you have planned it before sleeping, the lucid dreaming visualization method I am about to share in this post would be of good use to you.
Playing with images before sleeping is something so interesting that our mind likes to participate for adding more fun to it in various ways, many people have told me that they can resume a particular dream when they wake up in the middle, they might not be knowing it, but I think they are recreating the dream with a quick visualization of what they dreamed a few moments before.
So, if you think of something over and over again while falling asleep, it has a high probability of appearing in your dreams. Similarly, if you will visualize something at that time, you can actually continue that imagination as a dream.
In other words, you are being the architect of your dreams when you do this, and with practice, you will be able to do this more frequently.
I advise you to be patient with this process because learning to generate dreams based on your visualization is one thing and maintaining your awareness in the dreams is another, thus you need to combine these two skills in order to create a lucid dream of your desire. Continue reading
If you have had out of body experiences (OBEs), you might be well aware of the difference between astral projection and lucid dreaming, but if you have never had OBE adventure, then it will be very difficult for you to even imagine what it would be like to be an astral traveler.
I am saying this because I have been lucid dreaming for a long time now and I have had dreams that are so close to waking life, that it sometimes feels like reality.
Multiple false awakenings combined with sleep paralysis have troubled me a lot in the past, to which I found out a solution by converting false awakenings and sleep paralysis into lucid dreams.
Whenever I successfully become aware of a dream that is a false awakening, the dream scene in most cases was very close my actual environment, I can roam around my house and see the usual happenings as if I have come out of my body. Thus, often when I wake up, I will quickly reach places where I was in my dreams to check if anything was real, to my disappointment, it always has proved out to be a dream. Continue reading

Here I will be sharing a few tips with you using which you can multiply the benefits of dream journaling for both remembering your dreams as well as for increasing your dream awareness.

These tips that I am going to offer you here will put you a lot of steps ahead in the journey of lucid dreaming because all these points are effective ways to communicate with the subconscious mind about your interest in your dream world. Continue reading
Since dreams are created by our subconscious mind, the lucid dreaming affirmations that I will be discussing in this post can help you to become conscious in your dreams as well as to get better at having prolonged lucid dreams with greater control.
Honestly speaking, I have never been a big fan of affirmations despite knowing that it is a great tool for implanting suggestions in our inner mind, I often find it a tedious task, so I have always preferred the other ways of altering the limiting beliefs present in my subconscious mind.
So I promote usage of the methods I use for clearing my subconscious mind blocks when it comes to achieving goals and personal growth. However, when I was using dream sculpting program, I found a few ways to get better at lucid dreaming with the use of affirmations and it actually worked.
I believe that the affirmations that I am going to share with you here will not only help you to get better at inducing lucid dreams but also to hone this skill because it worked that way in my case. Continue reading
I have heard about a lot of exciting dreams, but there are a few lucid dreaming stories that I came across which really left me dumbstruck, so I want to share them with you here today.
Previously, I made a post on my three interesting lucid dreaming experiences that gave me some spiritual insights and I have had many amazing dream experiences.

If you are a lucid dreamer, your interest in your dream world will increase after knowing these stories and if you are not, then you may start aspiring to be one after reading this because these stories tell us that our dreams are a lot more than just a virtual world. Continue reading
“WILD” is one of the most popular methods of lucid dreaming, so here I will be discussing some methods that will help you to have wake induced lucid dreams.
This is probably the most used lucid dreaming method because entering into a dream with a strong intention of becoming lucid during the REM phase of sleep increases the chances of one to become conscious in their dreams.
Hence, WILD is simply a dream that is consciously entered from the wakeful state during the REM (rapid eye movement) cycle. Continue reading

I am about to share some very important things about nightmares here that will help you if your sleeps get ruined due to disturbing dreams.
Nightmares are normal when it happens rarely, but if unpleasant dreams become a part of your life, then that could really mean that there are some deep unresolved psychological issues about which you are doing nothing, these dreams could be an indication.
