Lucid Dreaming is by definition when someone is "lucid" or conscious that they are dreaming. I'm sure most of you have had at least one, being able to control your dream; just jump and fly like super man, or fuck anyone you want. This "lucidity" can be achieved via WILD, DILD or just getting lucky. Usually WILD (wake induced lucid dream) is the best. However it is not ideal for beginners. The one most suitable for beginners is the DILD or Dream Induced Lucid Dream. Many people argue that this is the same as a random one, but it is not. Randoms happen arbitrarily, whereas DILDs are done with practice and intent. The easiest way to achieve a lucid dream is to, while EXTREMELY, and I mean extremely tired, lay down flat with your arms at your side. You will have to lay completely still for about 20- 30 mins, this means DO NOT MOVE, DO NOT SWALLOW (lol) DO NOT BLINK!!! Why did I rage capslock? Because it's important. If you move your body will not fall asleep without your brain staying awake. During these 20-30 mins it is important to "try" to blank your mind or to listen to binural beats through headphones (not buds). Also, the reason I stressed to not move during this time frame is simple, your brain will send signals to your body to see if it's ready to rest.
These signals include an itch, the urge to move (hard to resist) or the urge to blink. IGNORE THEM! After 20-30 mins you will feel a weight on your chest (note-the weight isn't really there, had questions on this) After about 10 seconds of this your body will be asleep, but your brain is awake! DO NOT OPEN YOUR EYES! You will dream whilst awake which is terrifying. Anyways, after you realize you are not awake, try to move your body (only AFTER you feel the weight) to see if you can move them, you shouldn't be able to move anything. Here is where the lucidity begins. I always find it best to think for a little while about how I will be awake during my dream. This works for me often (3-4 times a week). Some techniques to not wake up. Rub your hands together in dream. This will take your minds attention away from waking up, and divert it to your hands. Same thing works with spinning around, but don't do it if you like where you are, because almost always you'll be transported elsewhere.
