Guide To An Amazing Lucid Dream Using Hypnagogia
HAVING LUCID DREAMS USING HYPNAGOGIA IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK!
Isn’t it fascinating to move back and forth between a lucid dream and reality? The incredible transition from real life to lucid dream is crazy. You separate from your body on the bed into the cloudy image of your incredible dream. Even words can fall short when it comes to explaining such events.
Hypnagogia, on the other hand, leaves you in an intriguing hallucinogenic state in which you can alter your mind to see visions according to your will. That is when you start lucid dreaming. You start drifting towards the sleep while you revolve around the magical world of the Hypnagogia state. Incredible.
Here’s how you can have lucid dreams using Hypnagogia.
The hypnagogic state is a peculiar sensory experience that marks the onset of sleep. You will almost certainly recognize it, even if you’ve never paid attention or thought much about it before.
This intriguing mildly hallucinogenic state can be used to have wake-induced lucid dreams, by remaining aware while they lull you to restfulness
What is The Hypnagogic State?
Hypnagogia can include a mesmerizing array of visions, sounds, bodily sensations and insights as you sail through the borderland sleep-wake state.
It usually begins with phosphenes – vague blobs of purple and greens, which appear slightly luminescent in the darkness of your closed eyelids.
What Causes Hypnagogia?
While some people consider hypnagogia to be meaningless activity of the brain – a way of clearing out unwanted junk – others believe it has more value.
Like lucid dreams, hypnagogia can be consciously guided and interpreted as it happens, forging a two-way communication with the unconscious mind.
Scientists have linked the hypnagogic state with several stages of sleep: NREM sleep, pre-sleep alpha waves, REM sleep and relaxed wakefulness.
Hypnagogia can be helpful in judging the depth – and deepening – the meditative state required for wake-induced lucid dreams.
Using Hypnagogia to Have Lucid Dreams
Observing and interacting with the hypnagogic state as you drift to sleep is one way of entering a lucid dream on demand.
The most powerful technique is known as a Wake Induced Lucid Dream, which in some circles is known as the Hypnagogic Induction Technique because hypnagogia plays such an important role.
To begin lay quietly in a darkened room as if you are going to sleep. (An even better starting point is when you wake up in the night, already relaxed, preferably after 4-6 hours of sleep.)
Allow your eyes to close naturally and observe the darkness.
Hypnagogia often begins with amorphous blobs of color slowly moving through my field of vision. Then they shape up into more interesting patterns. I then visualize new forms for my hypnagogia to take by willing the visuals to form shapes with increasing complexity.
With practice, you will learn how to evolve these moving shapes into people and places, which dictates the nature of your upcoming lucid dream.
At some point, your dreaming mind takes over, introducing new imagery from beyond your field of vision. I’d liken this to recalling a memory. The sensation and emotions and visual recall come to mind, from somewhere beyond the projected imagery.
And so the lucid dream begins.
If you remain aware, you’ll find yourself in a lucid dream.
Some people find it difficult to master at first. The hardest part is making the transition from observing the hypnagogia to becoming fully submerged in the dream. However, it is worth practicing because this also serves as a powerful form of meditation, which itself aids lucid dreaming.
