Lucid Dreaming Control Techniques

All techniques have their pros and cons, I will try to rate them according to my experience. The factors i will take in consideration are:

(keep in mind that this are the results for me, Lucid Dreaming techniques often give different results for different people)

  • How hard it is to perform(time taken and complications)
  • How effective it is for increasing clearness and vividness
  • How effective it is for increasing consciousness
  • How effective it is for stabilizing a dream when its fading away

1. Palms Rubbing

Put your hands together and rub them, feel the sensation of touch and warmth.

→ This is a handy way to get out of the blackout (the event of loosing sight)

2. The Tornado Spin

Just start spinning like this dude on the picture, make it fast and keep telling yourself “I am lucid dreaming” because you might end up prolonging the dream but loosing lucidity or experiencing a false awakening.

4. Focusing senses on objects

Its basically exploring object with all your senses

Example: Get a rock, how much does it weigh? How large is it? Rough or Smooth ? What Shape? Warm or Cold? Trow it and hear the sound… Manipulate its shape… etc.

Its best to have one routine that includes all the techniques, mine is basically 1, 2-3, 4:

When I realize that I am dreaming I instantly start with rubbing my palms. Next I do the tornado spin and shout “I AM IN A LUCID DREAM” while I am spinning . After that I shout “INCREASE LUCIDITY”. And lastly I perform the focus technique to give me extra edge.

And I do the same each time I notice that the dream is fading away.

  1. I woke up and realized that I would be able to lucid dream so I went back to sleep and my whole body started to burn and I could feel pain! It really hurt! I also heard like dry whispering saying “I’m here… I’m asleep… it’s really really working now…” and it was in the voice of a little girl I mean WTF?!?!?! My body kept burning. The voice started to chant that whisper and I was trying to move but I couldn’t. I was in sleep paralysis. I got reaaaallly scared and tried to move with all my strength and it worked!!! I got out of bed. This happened like 20 minutes ago.

  2. thanks so much for posting this! I didn’t know about the blackout was a common event. it happened to me recently I was all excited at discovering it was a dream but everything went black I was so confused LMAO!
