Daydreaming For Lucidity

Think Back

If you think back to when you were in middle and high school there was a particular type of dreaming you constantly found yourself doing.   Daydreams are very common and usually consume over 60 minutes of our time every single day.  So you may be asking yourself, “are these daydreams actually a type of dream?”

The short answer is yes but they are quite different than a full blown dream.  Daydreams usually start out because you have a thought you feel deserves some attention.  This thought could be from a vivid memory or even a fantasy.  When you begin daydreaming you have probably noticed that you aren’t really paying attention to your surroundings.  In my case, my teachers realized I wasn’t paying attention too.  Day dreaming is an escape into your own personal fantasy land, where your subconscious has the freedom to create and run wild with imagination.  The longer you daydream the more control you give to your subconscious.  This personal retreat will typically last until something in your environment startles you out of it.  Like a teacher smacking your desk or the bell ringing.

Daydreams And The Hypnotic State

Daydreams are similar to a full-blown dream because you are entering a type hypnotic trance that allows your subconscious thoughts to begin surfacing.  Think back to the last few times you were falling asleep.  Do you remember your mind running wild with thoughts that soon began to transform into a dream?  Sometimes your thoughts in both day dreams and regular dreams will show signs of worry or concern because the creative side (right side) of your brain has been given permission to take over.  All of your surroundings become distant and you lose conscious awareness.

The next time you find yourself daydreaming or in the hypnotic state prior to sleep, try to keep your thoughts positive.  If negative memories or thoughts begin to seep into your fantasy land think of something happy, or pure, such as vacationing on an exotic island.  If you get in the habit of doing this your dreams will become more pleasant and you will develop a key skill in lucid dreaming.   You will learn the skill of becoming consciously aware in the subconscious state of mind.

Next time we are going to talk about some additional benefits of daydreaming and learn why it’s one of the most underestimated types of dreams to induce lucidity!
