The Lucid Dreaming Experience…
I’m Stefan Zugor, (read my story) the founder of HowToLucid.com and an internationally recognised lucid dreaming author, coach, educator and researcher.
I started the same way most people do…
I was interested by reading an article or by hearing about it from a friend. I then started to learn everything I could about it and studied the science of lucidity. As the years went on I found that I knew far more than my peers, and was explaining how it works to people every week.
I began improving my lucid dreaming skill pretty fast, and eventually found that I had almost complete control over the dream. I say ‘almost’ because you can never have complete control over the dream but you can be completely aware of yourself within the dream. I played around with all sorts of ideas and concepts.
What Is Lucid Dreaming?
Lucid dreaming is the ability to CONTROL your dreams. A lucid dream FEELS like a normal dream but you’re aware of the fact that it’s a dream WHILE you’re actually in the dream, meaning you can guide it and control what you do, and what you experience.
You can fly across alien planets, overcome nightmares and live the impossible. Anyone can learn how to lucid dream by following proven techniques, it’s perfectly safe, easy and fun to learn!
Lucid dreaming is when you realize you are dreaming and can have control of your dream. Lucid dreaming may start by noticing that some part of the dream looks different from the rest, or some small detail that doesn’t fit. You might check a detail against what you know about reality, and find it’s not right.
Lucid Dreaming Benefits! (Why Bother)
What’s the point?
Lots of people don’t see the ‘point’ when they first hear about this, and are happy just having ‘normal dreams’. Well, there are several powerful REASONS why you should WANT to lucid dream, as well as a lot of attractive health benefits such as:
Improve your sleep: Lucid dreamers have more peaceful and restorative sleep and wake up feeling a lot more refreshed and energized
Experience your fantasies: Remember you can do ANYTHING in your lucid dreams, and it all feels vivid, real, and powerful. You can live out your wildest fantasies and experience things that would be impossible in waking life
Improve at real life: By practicing things in a lucid dream, you ACTUALLY improve in real life because the same neurons fire in your brain as if you’d really practiced the skill. Learn anything faster and with less effort!
Explore your mind: Since you’re basically walking around inside your own dreams and being aware of that fact, you can interact DIRECTLY with your mind, your fears and all sorts of other interesting parts of your brain.
Extend your life! We’re asleep for over a third of our entire lives. Why would you waste that by just laying there doing nothing, when you could be laying there doing ANYTHING in a lucid dream, and waking up with the beautiful memories of it all?!
Plus loads more: There are hundreds of benefits to lucid dreaming as well as practical uses for the skill, far too many to cover here. There are useful, practical benefits as well as health benefits, emotional healing, better sleep, and a LOT of fun

Top 3 Lucid Dreaming Techniques
There are LOTS of lucid dream induction techniques..
The menu system on this site was getting very crowded, so I thought it better to just list most of the sites best posts on the homepage. Here are the best lucid dreaming technique tutorials I’ve written, in no particular order. The best one I use personally at the moment is the MILD technique, but you can choose one you like the look of.
1: WBTB Lucid Dreaming Technique
The Wake Back to Bed method is a way to have lucid dreams. The steps are very simple! First, before going to sleep go about your nightly routine.
Then, when you are in bed, set your alarm for 6 hours later.
You will wake up in the morning right before your normal time and stay awake for another 2 hours (or however long you want). After that you will fall asleep and enter REM sleep which is the best time for dreaming!
2: WILD Lucid Dreaming Technique
The WILD technique for lucid dreaming is more like a meditative state than an active pursuit. You don’t focus on any images or thoughts and you try to stay as still as possible. It’s good to start with some simple meditation before bed every night, you can do this by sitting up in bed and following your breath.
When the breath becomes slow and shallow, close your eyes and continue to breathe regularly.
3: Writing Your Dreams Down
Writing your dreams down is a way to remember what you are dreaming about or you can even write down ideas that come to your head when you are sleepy.
For example, if you are trying to solve a difficult math problem and it comes to your head, writing it down will help you later when you need to find the answer.
Is Lucid Dreaming Dangerous?
Lucid dreaming is when you are aware that you are dreaming. It doesn’t seem like a dream. You can make choices in the dream. It’s not dangerous because when you wake up, you know that it wasn’t real. This is like when you’re watching a movie or reading a book and you know what is happening isn’t actually happening.
Can Lucid Dreaming Make You Tired?
Lucid dreaming means that you are aware that you are dreaming while you are dreaming. When you dream, your body is still resting in bed, but your brain is active and doing things. This is called REM sleep.
When your brain is active during REM sleep, your muscles don’t work as hard to move around because they are relaxed. Because of this, lucid dreaming does not make people tired.
Can ANYONE Learn To Lucid Dream?
Yes, anyone can lucid dream! You can be born with the ability and it can also be developed. Lucid dreaming is when you are aware that you are dreaming and can control what happens in the dream.
It is very common for people to have nightmares, so they go lucid dreaming to take control of the situation and change what is happening or turn it into a positive experience.
