A little bigger secret of lucidity and lucid dreaming.
Have you heard about the false awakenings? Well, you should learn about them. We often wake ourselves up into a bedroom. There is a small fraction of such awakenings which are still part of the dream world. What it means is that we dream about waking up. I let you imagine how many such “awakenings” you have missed in your life. Nobody knows the exact number, but even a hundred of such false awakening converted into lucid dreams could have been the key points of your life.
I am not here to boil up regrets in you. I want to encourage you to make the difference between dreams and waking life as part of the practice.
You must be telling yourself: “Oh God, I could have been flying to other dimensions so many times, only if I knew this before!
It is never too late, my friend!!
Now, the second secret of lucid dreaming is yours forever!
How to start recognizing more lucid dreams?
1. Before sleep, formulate in your mind the step that follows.
2. Wake up, preferably without moving your body and perform a reality check immediately. Choose a reality check that does not need to move the apparent body. Please watch the tutorial about reality checks to know more about them.
3. If the reality check is positive, stand up as usual – no fancy separation technique is necessary. But if you are a “separation from the body ACROBAT”, then a somersault, a bed sinking or an imaginary catapult will be your favourite beginnings of extra-dimensional worlds.
4. Upon standing up, I like to make one more reality check before I take off from a higher place. I like to start flying in the bedroom or put my hand through the wall or inside my body. This way, I really confirm where I am. I usually keep things reasonable by taking off in the room and flying off through the window rather than jumping off the balcony. But I do jump off, too, once I have confirmed with a few reality checks, and I would like to challenge my guts a little.
That is my safety advice to beginners: do not jump from the balcony as a test!
I hope you enjoyed the little secret of lucid dreaming and the second secret of lucid dreaming as well!
